Washington V. Hyatt Hotels Corp.

Summary: This class action lawsuit has been filed against Hyatt Hotels Corporation by Harold Brower, Eric Washington, and JoAnn Couvion. The plaintiffs allege that Hyatt engaged in fraudulent practices by charging consumers undisclosed "resort fees." They are seeking monetary damages, restitution, and declaratory relief, as well as a requirement for Hyatt to advertise the true total prices of its hotel rooms, including resort fees. The lawsuit argues that Hyatt's practice of concealing a portion of the room rate as a resort fee misleads consumers and allows Hyatt to profit from "drip pricing." Additionally, the lawsuit calls for the banning of this practice and asserts that the court has jurisdiction over the case, with venue being proper in the Northern District of Illinois. The plaintiffs are seeking class action status on behalf of all consumers in the United States who were charged resort fees by Hyatt. The lawsuit includes claims for violation of the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act and unjust enrichment. The plaintiffs are demanding a trial by jury. The legal representation for the plaintiffs is provided by Bursor & Fisher, P.A. and Mcmorrow Law, P.C..

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.
