Lawsuit Against River City Order of Police for “Ponzi Scheme” Death Benefits

Published on Apr 12, 2019 at 3:41 pm in News.

On April 8, 2019, a class action lawsuit was filed against the River City Fraternal Order of Police in Jefferson County because of the loss of death benefits.

Officers from the old Jefferson County police force were first offered a special death insurance-like program by their union in 1991. They stopped taking new members, however, when the county and city police departments merged with their unions. The benefit worked like a supplemental insurance policy. For decades, officers paid $10 a month for a $10,000 payout in the event of their passing. The money was supposed to go to their loved ones to help with funeral expense.

Kentucky Rules Medical Malpractice Review Panels Unconstitutional

Published on Dec 11, 2018 at 9:45 am in News.

On Thursday, November 15, 2018, Kentucky’s highest court unanimously ruled that a 2017 state law, which required medical malpractice claims to be reviewed first by an expert advisory panel, is unconstitutional.

In June 2017, the Medical Review Panel Act, a tort reform measure designed to weed out dead-end medical malpractice cases and prevent possibly negligent doctors from leaving the state, was struck down by the Kentucky Supreme Court because it delayed citizen’s access to the courts.

MGM Resorts International Denies Liability for October Shooting

Published on Jul 17, 2018 at 1:16 pm in News.

Last October, a mass shooting took place at a concert in Las Vegas. Stephen Paddock, the shooter, killed 58 people and injured more than 850. MGM Resorts International owns the property where the shooting happened: Mandalay Bay and the Route 91 Harvest festival venue. Several lawsuits were filed against the company after the shooting stating that MGM Resorts could have and should have done more to protect its victims from the assault.

Now, MGM Resorts International has responded by filing a lawsuit claiming that the company isn’t liable for the injuries and deaths that occurred. “No MGM Party attempted to commit, knowingly participated in, aided, abetted, committed, or participated in any conspiracy to commit any act of terrorism,” the lawsuit states. MGM maintains that they followed all the necessary safety precautions for the event. It was approved by the Department of Homeland Security.
