Cahoone V. Meta Platforms, Inc. Et Al

A personal injury lawsuit has been filed by Kelli Cahoone against several entities, including Meta Platforms, Inc., Facebook Holdings, LLC, Facebook Operations, LLC, Facebook Payments, Inc., Facebook Technologies, LLC, Instagram, LLC, and Siculus, Inc. The lawsuit alleges that Meta knowingly exploited vulnerable users, particularly teenagers, to drive corporate profit through its social media platforms, Facebook and Instagram. The plaintiff claims that Meta designed its products to maximize users' screen time, using complex algorithms that exploit human psychology and promote problematic and excessive use, leading to mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, and suicide ideation. The lawsuit seeks relief for personal injury and damages caused by the defendants' actions, including strict liability for the defective design of their social media products, which are alleged to be addictive and harmful to the mental health of minors. The lawsuit was filed in the US District Court for the District of Colorado, which has jurisdiction over the case because Meta transacts business in Colorado and interacts extensively with Colorado residents. A jury trial has been demanded.

United States of America v. Robert Hunter Biden

Summary: Hunter Biden is currently embroiled in a lawsuit, accused of purchasing a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018 while allegedly using illegal substances. Despite denying drug use on the necessary paperwork, if found guilty, he could face a maximum of 25 years in prison along with substantial fines. Biden's defense team contends that the charges are politically driven, asserting that Biden's temporary possession of an unloaded firearm did not constitute a public safety risk. They intend to contest the charges, leveraging an agreement with the prosecution, recent federal court decisions, and potential Second Amendment defenses. This case could potentially ignite wider discussions about Second Amendment rights, especially as the Supreme Court is poised to deliberate on a related issue concerning gun ownership for individuals subject to domestic violence restraining orders. Opinions are divided among political and legislative figures, with some speculating that advocates of the Second Amendment might oppose the law that prohibits gun ownership for drug users.
