Lawyers Filing Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits For Baby Powder
Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits Do You Want To File A Baby Powder Cancer Lawsuit?Studies show that talcum-based powder can cause ovarian cancer in women who have used it for genital/perineal hygiene. Studies dating back to 1982 have consistently linked prolonged talc-based baby and body powder usage with ovarian cancer. The talc particles moves through the female reproductive system and settles in the ovaries. These particles may remain in the ovaries for many years, creating inflammation resulting in the development and proliferation of cancer cells. Studies HAVE Linked Ovarian Cancer to Talc-Based Baby/Body Powder The pathology reports and tissue samples that were used to diagnose the ovarian cancer can now be examined to determine whether your ovarian tissues contain talc particles. Talc particles can be found in the pelvic lymph nodes, ovaries, and fallopian tubes and take many years to disintegrate and exit the body. The talcum powder cancer lawyers at Class Action Lawyer Network are speaking to women about talc having caused your ovarian cancer.

Did you take actos for 1 year or longer? Were you diagnosed with bladder cancer?
You may have a lawsuit against the manufacturers of Actos.
Actos is a medication taken by Type II ( adult onset ) diabetics to control their insulin production. Actos lawsuits are being filed for victims of bladder cancer from Actos.
Actos Lawsuit Overview
Actos lawsuits allege that long-term use of this Type 2 diabetes drug caused patients to develop bladder cancer . These continue to move forward in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Western District of Louisiana. According to court documents, the proceeding’s next Case Management Conference will be held on Thursday, October 24, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. (In re: Actos Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2299)
Actos Multi District Litigation
According to court documents Actos litigation involving bladder cancer lawsuits mounted up shortly after the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned in June 2011 that use of the drug for 12 months or more had been associated with an increased risk of the disease. At that time, the FDA ordered Takeda Pharmaceuticals to add new warnings to the Actos label about its potential to cause bladder cancer.
Court filings indicate that more than 2,500 Actos lawsuits are now pending in the Western District of Louisiana, where the first case will go to trial in January. Plaintiffs in Actos lawsuits allege that Takeda Pharmaceuticals and other defendants concealed knowledge that the medication could increase a person’s chances of developing bladder cancer, and failed to provide adequate warnings about that risk to the public and medical community.
On the state level, two Actos claims involving bladder cancer allegations have already gone to trial. Last month, a Maryland State Court jury awarded $1.7 million to the family of a man who died of bladder cancer following long-term use of Actos. However, according to court records, the judge presiding over the trial tossed out the verdict because the jury also found that the decedent’s decades-long smoking habit contributed to the development of the disease. (An v. Nieberlein, 24-C12003565, Circuit Court for the City of Baltimore, State of Maryland.)
This past April, a Los Angeles Superior Court jury awarded $6.5 million to a plaintiff who developed bladder cancer following four years of Actos use. However, the plaintiff is currently appealing a decision by the judge overseeing the case to grant Takeda Pharmaceuticals’ request to set aside the verdict. (Cooper v. Takeda Pharmaceuticals America Inc., CGC-12-518535, California Superior Court)
Long-term users of Actos ( over 2 years ) who have been diagnosed with bladder cancer may be eligible to file an Actos lawsuit against Takeda Pharmaceuticals.
Can I File An Actos Lawsuit?
1. You must have taken Actos for over one year
2. You must have a confirmed diagnosis of bladder cancer
3. You must have no prior medical history of baldder cancer prior to taking Actos
Actos does have warnings for bladder cancer with use for extended periods of time. Actos lawyers are filing lawsuits for people who have developed bladder cancer as a part of a multi district litigation.

Pay day loans in Florida are up and Pay Day Loan companies are attracting review for their practices of charging huge interest rates for out Florida residents who just cannot pay them on time. The Florida Supreme Court is looking at a payday loan class-action lawsuit suit.
Pay Day Loan Class Action Lawsuits
By Regan McCarthy
The Florida Supreme Court is considering whether a group seeking a class-action lawsuit against a check-advance company should be allowed to move forward with the case. Regan McCarthy reports The company argues the individuals signed contracts waiving their rights to class-action suits.
When Wendy Betts received a payday loan from McKenzie Check Advance she signed a contract waiving the right to file a class-action suit. Now she wants to bring a suit against the company, but she can’t find a lawyer willing to take her case individually, meaning her only option is to try for a class action suit, despite the contact she’d signed. Lawyers stand to make a lot more money through class action suits, than through individual cases, which generally are small claims wrapped up in complex issues. Paul Bland is the lawyer representing Betts and other members of a group hoping to sue the company together. Bland, says the waivers banning the class action suit should be thrown out because they’re keeping the people from being able to move forward with a case.
“If this arbitration clause had said, you have to go to Alaska to bring claims, that would be unenforceable. If the arbitration clause had said that the filing fees for the arbitrator would be a million dollars, there’s no doubt that that would be unenforceable. And t was a trial court’s finding that there was essentially no reasonable avenue other than a class action.”
But the company’s lawyer Jamie Bianchi says the issue is not about whether class action suits are good or bad, but about federal policy.
“There’s a federal goal of promoting arbitrations and we’re going to, as a policy the United States is going to follow it.”
And Justice Barbara Pariente says the state court will have to follow the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, whether the justices think it’s right or wrong.
“We’re here with the hand we’re dealt, which is in this case, the U.S. Supreme court and all the decisions after that.”
But, Pariente says she’s not certain the U.S. Supreme Court ruling takes into account whether there are other viable options for citizens blocked from class action suits. The court did not indicate when they expect to rule on the case.
Florida Pay Day Loan Laws
Under Florida law, payday lenders cannot seek to have a borrower prosecuted for bouncing a check given as security for a loan, so if the creditor is threatening to have you charged with "theft by check" it is almost certainly lying in an attempt to frighten you.
Although payday loans are legal in Florida, the amount of interest and other fees they can charge to consumers are fairly strictly regulated by state law.
Under Florida law, the payday lender may be required to work out a repayment plan with you at a reasonable interest rate.
