Craig V. Meta Platforms, Inc. Et Al

A lawsuit has been filed by Klinten Craig against Meta Platforms, Inc. and its subsidiaries, including Facebook, Instagram, and Siculus, Inc. The lawsuit alleges that Meta knowingly exploited vulnerable teenage users to drive corporate profit by designing their products to maximize screen time and promote problematic and excessive use. This has resulted in cyberbullying, obesity, eating disorders, sleep deprivation, negative self-comparison, depression, anxiety, self-harm, and suicide ideation. The lawsuit seeks relief for damages suffered as a result of Meta's alleged misconduct and demands a jury trial. The defendants' algorithms are designed to exploit users' natural tendency to counteract dejection by going back to the source of pleasure for another dose of euphoria. The addictive use of social media by minors is psychologically and neurologically similar to addiction to internet gaming disorder. The plaintiffs are seeking damages and injunctive relief.

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.
