    An explosive sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a female TV personality against a veteran male news anchor is roiling Bloomberg, the company owned by former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg. In a lawsuit obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com, Abigail Doolittle, an on-air news reporter at Bloomberg Television since 2016, is claiming she was repeatedly sexually harassed for four years by news anchor Mark Crumpton who has been at the company for three decades. Insiders are debating whether it is a case of the latest MeToo moment at Bloomberg – which has wrestled with complaints from women in the male-dominated company in the past and now has a new multi-year harassment claim on its hands. Or is it a case of a 'newsroom Karen' in which an attractive young white news woman is leveling complaints without merit against a veteran black news anchor. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) took no action after Doolittle's initial complaints to the federal agency last year, but in July signed off on the case and gave Doolittle her 'notice of right to sue' on her own in...

    Sometimes the manager at Tesla’s electric car factory in Fremont would greet employees with “Welcome to the plantation,” and sometimes he would say, “Welcome to the slave house,” a lawsuit by a Black employee claims. The lawsuit filed Friday by a female current Tesla worker follows a slew of other suits against Tesla — including a civil-rights action by the state of California — alleging the company failed to properly respond to widespread racism in its facilities. Raina Pierce started working in production at the Fremont plant in January 2021, installing latches onto car doors, according to her suit filed in Alameda County Superior Court. “Tesla’s facilities contain the n-word throughout,” with the slur often preceded by the f-word, the suit claimed. Supervisors referred to Pierce using the n-word and a gender-based insult, the suit alleged. Tesla, based in Texas after moving its headquarters from Palo Alto late last year, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Its CEO, Elon Musk, is buying Twitter, the company confirmed Monday, with Musk saying in a statement that free speech was “the...
    Burger King has been accused of deliberately using its ads to mislead costumers as to the size of its sandwiches, in a federal filing by more than 100 patrons who say the burger giant's marketing practices constitutes 'consumer fraud.' The class-action suit, filed Monday in US District Court in Miami, claims Burger King brass, through a rash of recent ads for some of its menu items, knowingly deceived customers with images of mammoth-sized menu items noticeably larger than their real-world counterparts. According to the 26-page filing, the fast-food firm 'overstated' several of its menu items - including the iconic Whopper - by as much as 35 percent in misleading marketing images, beefing them up to coincide with an ad campaign that touted larger portions at the eatery.  The suit features a slew of shocking side-by-side comparisons of menu items' beefed-up likeness in the chain's marketing adverts with their relatively wimpy - and sometimes even bite-sized - real-life equivalents.

    Dodgers right-hander Trevor Bauer has filed a defamation lawsuit against the sports site known as The Athletic and former MLB reporter Molly Knight for excluding pieces of information from sexual assault charges made against him last year. Central to Bauer’s suit is the claim that Knight and the Athletic withheld medical records of Bauer’s accuser, which showed that the woman did not have an “acute” skull fracture. Instead, Bauer’s suit alleges, Knight and The Athletic helped “[spread] the false narrative” that Bauer had fractured her skull. The woman accused Bauer of choking and punching her during sex. The Athletic issued the following update on their article about Bauer, stating “the woman was initially diagnosed with signs of a basilar skull fracture, a subsequent CT scan found no acute fracture.” Bauer’s suit contends that The Athletic’s “false reporting led to a proliferation of articles and tweets referencing a nonexistent skull fracture.” Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer (Katelyn Mulcahy/Getty Images) Despite having to make a significant update to their story, a spokesperson for The Athletic told the Hill that they feel “confident” in their reporting...

Dr Leonard 'Lenny' Hochstein, 55, faces a lawsuit from former patient Maylen Ortega, who claims she suffered a dangerous infection and that parts of her flesh died thanks to her April 2019 makeover, which also included a tummy-tuck.  Her lawsuit - vehemently denied by Miami-based Hochstein - alleges he 'failed to follow the prevailing standard of medical care required of medical professional,' following her surgery in at the Med Spa South Florida.  The lawsuit further claims that Ortega's incisions 'began turning purple and seemingly necrotic,' just two days after the surgery.

Trump's suit, filed Monday in US District Court, names as defendants both the committee itself and archivist David Ferriero.   The filing claims the committee 'has decided to harass President Trump and senior members of his administration (among others) by sending an illegal, unfounded, and overbroad records request to the Archivist of the United States.'

    An attorney for the woman who accused former Fox News host Ed Henry of sexual assault has called his alleged conduct 'Weinstein-esque, but worse' in a court hearing. Lawyers for Jennifer Eckhart, a former associate producer for Fox Business Network, made the claims at a hearing on Wednesday in US District Court in Manhattan, where they battled to keep her suit against Fox News alive in the face of motions to dismiss.

    Mamma Mia, that’s a spicy lawsuit! A former Brooklyn College professor who started teaching Italian studies at the school in 1977 has filed a multimillion-dollar discrimination suit against the institution after it canceled the Italian major, federal court papers show. Professor Luigi Bonaffini, 73, who has published over 40 books and garnered several awards, claims he was forced into retirement at the beginning of 2020 due to his age, nation of origin, and hearing disability, which the suit contends did not impact his ability to instruct his popular classes. Bonaffini charges Brooklyn College phased out Italian instruction completely in the most Italian place in America — there are an estimated 800,000 Italians and Italian-Americans living in the five boroughs — to get rid of him and his aging department colleagues, the youngest of whom was 65. The professor, who hails from Italy and resides in Park Slope, filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against the defendants in April and was issued a right to sue notice on July 29, court papers show. The professor “received excellent...
    A new lawsuit claims that early last year, a Denver-area nursing home evicted ailing resident Donna Clifford for nonpayment, with the full knowledge that she was incapable of caring for herself without assistance, and even though the majority of her fees were covered by government aid. Nine days later, she was found covered in her own waste and in a health crisis from which she never recovered. When Clifford died a few weeks later, she looked like a woman in her eighties or nineties, but she was just 59. The suit was filed by Clifford's children, Monica Almy and Chase Clifford, against Christopher House Rehabilitation and Care in Wheat Ridge, as well as the Denver North and Denver South offices of 24/7 AvaRe Healthcare.

    Google got slapped with a $5 billion proposed class action lawsuit this week, with plaintiffs accusing the search giant of illegally invading the privacy of millions of users by tracking their internet use even when they browsed in “incognito” mode. The complaint, filed in federal court in San Jose, Calif., argues that Google learned the “most intimate and potentially embarrassing things” about users’ searches by gathering data through Google Analytics, Google Ad Manager and other apps and web plug-ins. Google “cannot continue to engage in the covert and unauthorized data collection from virtually every American with a computer or phone,” the complaint said. Google has said that it will defend itself against the claims, with a spokesperson saying that the browser “clearly states” that websites “might be able to collect information about your browsing activity” when a new Incognito tab is opened. The complaint said the proposed class likely includes “millions” of Google users who since June 1, 2016 browsed the internet in “incognito” mode. It seeks at least $5,000 of damages per user for violations of federal wiretapping and...
    They’re bugging! A Manhattan man heads a class-action suit against the Mississippi makers of Spartan Mosquito Eradicator, claiming their product’s promise to slay skeeters doesn’t fly. In the summer of 2018, plaintiff Todd Consolazio dropped $20 at a local Lowe’s store for the do-it-yourself hanging tube, with the instructions, “just add warm water and shake.” The pest potion of sugar, salt and yeast promises to eliminate “your mosquito population for up to 90 days,” the Manhattan federal court suit says. “The devices purport to attract mosquitoes to drink their four-ingredient solution which supposedly kills the mosquitoes before they can breed,” the complaint says, adding, “defendants have sold tens of millions of dollars’ worth of the product through their false promises of effectiveness to consumers in the United States.” The device is “a complete scam,” the suit alleges, adding that if “defendants’ claim of having solved one of mankind’s most vexing problems and greatest health challenges using just sugar, salt, and yeast sounds too good be true, that is because it is.” The May 4 suit, which charges false and deceptive...
