The young black man, who was an engineering student at the time, was arrested and then detained in the 19th Precinct stationhouse, "where he was kept in a holding cell for some two hours," according to The NY Daily News. He was later released with his belongings. According to the article, the NYPD has maintained that he was only held for approximately 40 minutes, not two hours.

Newark, N.J. Jan. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/-- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announces today that they are going to put a strong focus on funding traumatic brain injury cases in 2016. Traumatic brain injury (also known as TBI) is "a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities," according to the TBI website. A traumatic brain injury can be life-changing, and devastating, as brain injuries don't heal like other injuries such as broken limbs. Brain injuries vary, and consequences of a brain injury can be very different. Sometimes, symptoms appear immediately, and other times symptoms may not present themselves for days or even weeks after the injury occurred. Additionally, there are instances when a victim does not even know that they have suffered a brain injury. According to the TBI website, approximately 1.5 million people in the U.S. suffer from a traumatic brain injury each year, "50,000 people die from TBI each year," and "85,000 people suffer long-term disabilities." Stats also showed that more than 5.3 million people in the U.S. live with disabilities caused by a traumatic brain injury. The website indicates that the top three causes of TBI are car accidents (including head-on collisions), firearms, and falls. Click here to read the entire article.

The scientist Will Smith plays, Bennet Omalu, is a forensic pathologist whose work helped diagnose chronic traumatic encephalopathy (C.T.E) – "a degenerative brain disease linked to repeated blows to the head." With the NFL concussion litigation ongoing in reality, and injuries of former players, as well as suicides (including Junior Seau as well as Dave Duerson), the public awareness and new opinions are only going to grow when the movie is released in December. The lawsuit funding firm expects new controversy due to the movie, and that the settlement process for players getting paid is quite arduous and could be delayed for well into 2016 with various appeals happening.

NFL Concussion Settlement Funding Action Picks Up at Legal-Bay


September 16, 2015

Philidelphia, P.A. September 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that there has been a rise in applications and substantial funding occurring at the company, despite the fact that the settlement deal has been challenged in court as being insufficient. Federal District Judge Anita B. Brody had approved the landmark potential $1 billion settlement in the NFL concussion lawsuit in April, hoping to put an end to this part of the litigation, however, according to the NY Times, "a friend-of-the-court brief" filed in August suggests that the settlement "is flawed because it does not cover the full range of physical and psychiatric disorders linked to brain trauma." Lawyers for the Brain Injury Association of America filed a brief with the U.S. Court of Appeal for the Third Circuit, stating that the settlement doesn't recognize or compensate the bulk of the players who suffer "long-term consequences of brain trauma, but merely rewards certain small, discrete groups." They allege that many retired players remain "excluded and uncompensated" under the settlement terms. According to the NY Times, the settlement "is expected to be appealed by up to a dozen sets of players." Despite the question on when the players will receive actual payments, Legal-Bay has seen a steady rise of applications and substantial funding occurring in regards to the NFL concussion lawsuit and settlement, and Legal-Bay is here to help any retired players who need lawsuit money or a lawsuit cash advance prior to receiving their ultimate settlement check.Click here to read the entire article.

Lawsuit Settlement Funding Firm Reports $20MM Wrongful Death Suit against NYC from Kalief Browder's Family for His Suicide after Spending Three Years at Rikers


September 9, 2015

Newark, N.J. September 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports today that the family of Kalief Browder served notice that they are suing New York City for $20 million for the death of their son who spent three torturous years at Rikers Island. Kalief Browder was arrested just before his 17th birthday in May of 2010 for "allegedly stealing a backpack," according to the NY Daily News, but he was never tried. The Bronx man remained in Rikers because his family was unable to raise his $3,000 bail. He was offered a plea deal 33 months later, however, he refused it. According to the NY Daily News, Browder was beaten, assaulted, and physically and mentally abused. During his stint at Rikers, he attempted suicide four times but failed. He was released in May of 2013, and a month later, the charges filed against him were dropped. Within the three years he spent at Rikers, he spent 800 days in solitary confinement, and according to statements from his mother, Browder said he just couldn't "take it anymore." In June, he hung himself in his family's apartment with an air conditioner cord. His parents, Venida and Everett, served a notice of intention to file a wrongful death suit, naming the city Department of Correction and the Bronx district attorney's office, as well as various city health agencies. According to the NY Daily News, Browder's death has inspired Mayor de Blasio "to reform the scandal-plagued jail to stop solitary for 16 and 17-year old inmates."

Lawsuit Settlement Funding Firm Reports Fatal Malibu Car Crash involving Caitlyn Jenner


September 8, 2015

Trenton, N.J. September 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports today that the fatal car wreck in Malibu in February of this year that resulted with a 69 year old woman dead from the crash may lead to a misdemeanor manslaughter charge for celebrity Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner). Jenner is a former Olympian and currently a reality television star. At this time, it is unclear if Caitlyn Jenner will or will not be charged, however, according to NBC News, "investigators determined she was driving too fast, officials and law-enforcement sources said." The four-vehicle chain-reaction car accident occurred February 7th, when Jenner's Cadillac SUV rear-ended the woman's Lexus that had rear-ended another motor vehicle, subsequently killing the female driver of the Lexus "after her car was pushed into the southbound lane of the highway and struck head-on by a Hummer," according to NBC Los Angeles. The L.A. County Sheriff's Department stated that the investigation has been completed by traffic investigators, and the results will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney. According to NBC News, the investigation determined that Caitlyn Jenner's speed was a factor in the crash, taking into consideration the condition the traffic was in at that time. Law-enforcement sources have said that based on that criteria, the investigation at hand could possibly lead to a misdemeanor manslaughter charge against celebrity Caitlyn Jenner, however, other factors could potentially counter those charges. Ultimately, the decision as to whether or not any charges will be filed, or if the investigation needs further analysis, will come down to the district attorney's office.Click here to read the entire article.

Legal-Bay Lawsuit Settlement Funding Anticipates More Settlements by Transvaginal Mesh Manufacturers in 2015


Jan. 21, 2015

Philidelphia, P.A., Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that in light of the recent $1.3 billion settlement by Endo International Plc, owner of American Medical Systems (AMS), the case funding firm believes more mesh manufacturers will begin resolving their own suits in early 2015. Endo has agreed to pay nearly $1.3 billion in order to resolve product liability transvaginal mesh lawsuits over their implants. The devices were designed to support pelvic muscles and treat incontinence; however, the lawsuits claim that the line of vaginal mesh implants caused injury through erosion in the vagina for some women, leaving them in pain with potential exposure to serious infection resulting in required revision surgery. With this high settlement, Legal-Bay expects more mesh manufacturers will begin to resolve their own pending claims. Click here to read the entire article.

Legal-Bay Lawsuit Settlement Funding Re-Enters BP Business Economic Claim Settlement Funding After Supreme Court Rules Against Oil Giant


Jan. 14, 2015

Pensacola, F.L., Jan. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that they're returning their focus on funding BP Business Economic Claim cases in 2015 after the latest setback against the oil giant. BP had originally agreed to the compensation deal in 2012 over the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, which claimed 11 lives and became the biggest US offshore oil spill in history. Recently, BP challenged the compensation deal, according to BBC News, arguing that the company could "fall prey to inflated or bogus compensation claims." Also according to BBC News, "BP asked the Supreme Court to consider whether people and businesses seeking payments under the settlement included individuals who had not actually suffered any injury as a result of the oil spill." However, the US Supreme Court rejected BP's legal challenge, making this the latest setback for the oil giant. BP had initially projected that they would pay approximately $7.8 billion in compensation costs for victims, but now they say they can no longer predict how much the deal will actually cost them. While there is no guaranteed number in sight, BP has set aside about $43 billion for victim compensation. Click here to read the entire article.

Legal-Bay Lawsuit Settlement Funding Says NFL Concussion Settlement Fairness Hearing Resulted in No Official Settlement Approval


Dec. 19, 2014

Philadelphia, P.A., Dec. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that the fairness hearing in Philadelphia, PA last month before U.S. District Judge Anita Brody resulted in no official settlement approval. The NFL concussion suit settlement is approximately $765 million, and while most former players seemed to have accepted the deal by opting in, the official terms of the settlement upset some of the lawyers representing retired players who are objecting to the settlement. Most of the approximate 20,000 former players are backing the deal, but others think the NFL should pay more. The terms of the settlement state that only players who had chronic traumatic encephalopathy (C.T.E.), a degenerative neurological disease, prior to July when the settlement was preliminarily approved, will be eligible for up to $4 million while anyone who was discovered to have C.T.E after that time would receive nothing. A handful of retired players are complaining that only players who died with chronic traumatic encephalopathy (C.T.E.) within a small amount of years will be eligible to receive a cash award. U.S. District Judge Anita Brody had granted preliminary approval to the settlement deal after the NFL agreed to remove a $675 million cap on payments, however, after conducting the hearing and listening to complaints and objections, she will decide if the settlement is truly fair. Judge Brody is expected to make her final decision in early 2015. Click here to read the entire article.

Legal-Bay Lawsuit Settlement Funding Updates News on All Major Hip Litigations


Nov. 04, 2014

Houston, T.X., Nov. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that Johnson & Johnson won in the first bellwether trial recently in the case against their DePuy Pinnacle system metal-on-metal hip implant device. The plaintiff claimed the design was defective and the company failed to adequately warn the patient of the potential complications, however, J&J proved victorious after a seven week trial. Last year, DePuy settled over 7,000 lawsuits for $2.5 billion over a different hip implant device (the ASR device) which they recalled in 2010, but regarding the Pinnacle lawsuits, they opted to go to trial. DePuy defended their Pinnacle device which they stopped selling in 2013, claiming that it wasn't the defective design of the implant that was the issue, but the incorrect positioning of it into the body by a small number of surgeons. They insist that they had previously warned surgeons that incorrectly positioning the implant into patients' bodies could cause damage tissue and device failure. The jury deliberated for two days, and ultimately rejected the plaintiff's allegations, deciding the plaintiff's injuries were not caused by failure or negligence on DePuy's behalf. The bellwether trial took place in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas under Judge Ed Kinkeade. There are still 6,500 cases pending relating to the company's Pinnacle hip implant device, and the next trial is scheduled for January. Click here to read the entire article.

A judge has ruled that the victim is entitled to collect damages from the state.

Actos Lawsuit Settlement Funding Amounts Increased at Legal-Bay Funding


Sept. 25, 2014

Houston, T.X., Sept. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that they have increased their funding amounts on Actos cases as the litigation picks up steam as more bellwether trials are expected in 2015. On August 28th, according to Business Week and Bloomberg News, Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. and Eli Lilly & Co. lost a bid to have U.S. District Judge Rebecca Doherty (the judge overseeing thousands of Actos lawsuits) throw out a combined $9 billion punitive-damage award over allegations the drug makers hid the risks of cancer due to the Actos diabetes medicine. The judge ruled against the bid because the jurors on the case carefully considered evidence which suggested Takeda Pharmaceuticals and Eli Lilly knew the use of Actos over an extended period of time could lead to an increased risk in developing bladder cancer but neglected to adequately warn doctors and patients of the possibility. The verdict is the second largest in the U.S. in 2014, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, and is likely to be reduced on appeal because of its sheer size, according to legal experts. Court documents show that the case at hand was the first to go to trial of over 3,000 Actos lawsuits pending in the Western District of Louisiana. All of the pending claims in Louisiana allege that Takeda as well as the other defendants hid the risk of bladder cancer associated with the extended use of the drug.
