04/10/2014 - The jury in the first federal trial over claims that Takeda Pharmaceutical Company hid the cancer risk of its diabetes medicine Actos, ordered the Japanese manufacturer to pay $1.5 million in compensatory and $6 billion in punitive damages. The punitive damage is likely the largest punitive damage awards on record. The case was tried in Lafayette, Louisiana and the jury issued the punitive damage award to punish the company for perceived bad behavior on behalf of Takeda. Takeda’s partner, Eli Lilly & Co., was ordered to pay $3 billion in punitive damages as well.

04/04/2014 - Amidst the escalating controversy against General Motors over the ignition switch recall, more information is leaking regarding what GM knew and when.

Officials with Delphi, the supplier of the part, advised investigators that GM accepted the now recalled switches, despite knowing they failed to meet company specifications.
04/02/2014 - General Motors’ problems appear to be going from bad to worse. It is now facing congressional hearings, a criminal probe by the U.S. Justice Department and a slew of potentially costly lawsuits, over its poor handling of the ignition switch recall. The sentiments across America appear to be that GM’s once golden reputation for quality and value have been eviscerated due to their actions involving failure to act on the ignition switch recalls.

03/27/2014 - In the midst of the swirling controversy surrounding GM’s massive recalls, Nissan quietly announced the recall of over 1 million vehicles to repair software that can deactivate the front passenger airbag.

02/27/2014 - This week, General Motors doubled the number of cars it recently recalled from 780,000 thousand to 1.6 million for faulty ignition switches. This defect has been linked to over 31 crashes and 13 deaths. Just two weeks earlier GM announced the recall of 780,000 Chevrolet Cobalts and Pontiac G5s. The recall now includes 2003-07 Saturn Ion compacts, 2006-07 Saturn Sky sports cars, 2006-07 Chevrolet HHrs and 2006-07 Pontiac Soltice vehicles.
02/27/2014 - There has been a rising wave of concern regarding the dangers of testosterone-enhancing drugs, which have become quite popular with baby boomer males, seeking to combat symptoms of low testosterone including flagging energy, weight gain, decreased muscle mass, moodiness and decreased sexual performance.
