Tamara Bryant has filed a product liability lawsuit in the United States District Court, Illinois Northern against several companies, including L'Oreal USA, Inc., Soft Sheen Carson, LLC, and Dabur International LTD. The lawsuit alleges that the plaintiff's uterine cancer was caused by her regular and prolonged exposure to phthalates and other endocrine disrupting chemicals found in the defendants' hair relaxers. The plaintiff is seeking damages for the defendants' negligent, willful, and wrongful conduct in connection with the design, development, manufacture, testing, packaging, promoting, marketing, distribution, labeling, and/or sale of the products. The court has jurisdiction over the case under 28 U.S.C. § 1332(a) because the amount in controversy exceeds $75,000 and the plaintiff and defendants are residents of different states. The lawsuit also addresses the discrimination and trauma experienced by Black women and girls due to societal pressure to alter their natural hair, and seeks to hold cosmetic companies accountable for ensuring the safety and non-discriminatory nature of their products. The lawsuit includes claims of strict liability and negligence for failure to warn, and seeks damages for economic and noneconomic losses, including medical expenses, lost earnings, physical and mental pain and suffering, emotional distress, and impairment of quality of life.

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.
