A lawsuit filed by a former student at Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua, New York alleging sexual abuse will not be dismissed. U.S. District Judge Vincent Briccetti has refused to dismiss the civil lawsuit alleging that the school failed the plaintiff while he was being sexually abused by the high school drama teacher. According to Briccetti, district officials "were deliberately indifferent to the substantial risk of harm to plaintiff" and the school district's request for dismissal was "premature." The lawsuit is one of seven pending against the drama teacher and the Chappaqua Central School District.

Purdue Pharma has requested that a lawsuit filed against it by the city of Everett, Washington over its controversial drug OxyContin be dismissed. The lawsuit filed by the city alleges that "Purdue knew that their product was going into the black market, had an obligation to report that and didn't do it." However, Purdue has requested the lawsuit's dismissal, stating that there "must be direct injury between the person suing the person being sued." Purdue argues that it sells OxyContin directly to a wholesaler, and not to users. U.S. District Judge Ricardo Martinez is expected to issue a ruling in the case in the coming weeks.

Ohio Supreme Court to Rule in Abortion Cases
spacer image
The Ohio Supreme Court is scheduled to decide on new abortion laws for the state. Over the last six years, abortion laws across the state have tightened, making it more difficult for women to obtain abortions. However, the high court is to decide whether the laws will be cemented or unraveled as it hears two pending legal challenges. On Sept. 12, the court heard Capital Care Network of Toledo versus the Ohio Department of Health and it is scheduled to hear Preterm-Cleveland, Inc. versus Gov. John Kasich on Sept. 26. Both of the cases involve challenges to relatively recent restrictions placed on abortion providers.
