Werley V. Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe International, Llp

Summary: The class action lawsuit, spearheaded by Dennis R. Werley, is lodged against Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe International, LLP. The firm is accused of negligence and recklessness due to their alleged failure to sufficiently safeguard their computer network. This purported oversight led to a data breach on March 13, 2023, resulting in the unauthorized access and theft of sensitive personal information belonging to over 152,818 individuals. The compromised data included names, addresses, birth dates, and Social Security numbers. Orrick is accused of privacy violation, fraud, and facilitating identity theft. The lawsuit further contends that Orrick breached the Federal Trade Commission Act and various state laws by not maintaining adequate data security. The plaintiff and class members have reportedly experienced an uptick in spam calls and are at an increased risk of identity theft and exploitation. The stolen data was allegedly compiled into "Fullz" packages, comprehensive personal profiles, which were subsequently sold to other criminals. The lawsuit seeks actual, statutory, and punitive damages, attorney fees, costs, and expenses. It also demands injunctive relief, including enhancements to Orrick's data security systems, future annual audits, and long-term credit monitoring services funded by Orrick. The plaintiff's ultimate goal is to ensure that his personal information, along with that of others, is safeguarded against future breaches.

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.
