If you live in a Greystar-owned building, attorneys working with ClassAction.org want to speak with you as part of a new investigation. They’re looking into whether renters are paying too much due to an illegal price-fixing scheme. Complaints have also surfaced that Greystar is charging renters hidden fees and keeping their security deposits after they move out. It’s more of these complaints that attorneys want to hear about, so if you rent in a Greystar-owned property, head on over to this page for more on the investigation and a chance to share your story. With your help, attorneys may be able to get a class action lawsuit on file to get renters some money back.
The maker of the popular MamaRoo infant swing and RockaRoo rocker is facing a proposed class action following a recall of the products due to a strangulation hazard. According to the lawsuit, the restraint straps on the MamaRoo swing and RockaRoo rocker can dangle below the seat, putting crawling infants at risk of getting stuck in the straps. Prior to the August 15 recall, MamaRoo maker 4moms reportedly received two reports of entanglement incidents involving a 10-month-old who died from asphyxiation and another 10-month-old who suffered neck bruising after crawling under the seat of an unoccupied swing. The lawsuit alleges 4moms has falsely advertised that the recalled MamaRoos and RockaRoos are safe and appropriate to use and failed consumers by placing potentially dangerous products into the stream of commerce.

While the idea of a medicine’s side effects being worse than what they're supposed to treat has become a bit of a joke, a recent lawsuit is claiming that a potentially harmful ingredient in certain Tylenol products is no joke at all. Johnson & Johnson, the maker of Tylenol, is on the receiving end of a lawsuit claiming the company has failed to properly disclose that the pain reliever contains titanium dioxide, a heavy metal that can accumulate in and harm the human body. The lawsuit claims that Tylenol’s labeling violates federal regulations in that the pain reliever is touted as “safe when used as directed” despite the fact that titanium dioxide can have detrimental health effects. You can find all the specifics, including the products at issue, over on our newswire.
The presence of PFAS or “forever chemicals” in common household products has been the topic of several lawsuits in recent months. The latest is claiming that the synthetic chemicals, which can be harmful even at low levels, are likely present in Oral-B Glide dental floss. According to the suit, Proctor & Gamble (P&G) had a duty to disclose the likely presence of the harmful chemicals to consumers, who would not reasonably expect the floss to contain PFAS. Ultimately, the case charges that P&G has misled the public as to the true nature and quality of the dental floss and has “profited enormously” from its allegedly deceptive marketing. Want more?
