CDC blocks testimony of vaccine whistleblower in medical malpractice lawsuit

Lawyers Bryan Smith and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. want Dr. William Thompson to testify in a medical malpractice case to share how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was privy to fraudulent statements in the studies they released, which found no connection between vaccines and autism.

Thompson is a 19-year CDC veteran who worked as former senior vaccine safety scientist at CDC’s Immunology Safety Office. He is also a key author of four studies the CDC used to prove that the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine and vaccines, which contain the mercury-based preservative thimerosal, do not expose their recipients to autism. However, the United States Department of Health and Human Services admitted that during the proceedings, the agency sealed one of the cases, wherein HHS conceded that the vaccines did indeed cause autism, therefore concealing critical evidence.

Personal injury lawsuit against Smith & Wesson dismissed

Judge Todd Campbell issued a decision on Friday, September 16, regarding a personal injury case in a Nashville, Tennessee. Judge Campbell ruled that Smith & Wesson, a firearms manufacturer, was not liable for an accidental discharge that occurred earlier this year.

According to the lawsuit, Randy McNeal was accidentally shot in the finger by a Bodyguard .380 pistol inside a gun store in Murfreesboro as he was trying to put the safeties on the pistol. He alleged that a loose screw on the built-in laser sight of the gun prevented the slide from locking in position. The accident resulted in him losing a finger.

Airport takes note of new policy regarding Samsung Note 7 smartphones

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 smartphones have been banned from air travel within, from, and to the United States, including on a passenger’s person, in carry-on baggage, and in checked baggage. However, Memphis International Airport in Tennessee will allow passengers to store these devices in their vehicles on airport property. The devices were banned because of reports that they are prone to explosions.

Samsung stopped the sale and manufacture of Galaxy Note 7 smartphones on Tuesday, October 11. Passengers who try to smuggle a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone in their checked baggage will find themselves facing criminal prosecution. As of last Wednesday, October 19, the Memphis-Shelby County Airport has yet to receive notice of an incident from the Transportation Security Administration. Memphis International public information officer Glen Thomas said: “If someone has the phone, they can give it to someone to take home, store it in their vehicle, or ship it through a ground carrier.”

If you are hurt in a serious personal injury accident and subject to physical and emotional trauma that otherwise would not have occurred, you can pursue financial compensation from negligent parties. Seek the legal help of our attorneys at John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers in Memphis by calling our offices today at (866) 537-1881.



CPSC releases warning after Samsung top-loading washing machines explode

On the morning of April 8, 2016, 32-year-old Georgia resident Melissa Thaxton said she was unloading some of her clothes from her Samsung top-loading washing machine when it exploded. “There were wires, nuts, the cover actually was laying on the floor.”

What was more disturbing about the whole thing was that her four-year-old son, Luke, had been playing nearby the running machine when the explosion happened. “I just remember covering my head and leaning towards my son and just screaming this scream that I didn’t even know I could scream.”

Thaxton and other plaintiffs filed a lawsuit against Samsung in federal court in New Jersey. Jason Lichtman, the plaintiffs’ legal counsel, said a support rod in the washing machine cannot hold the tub in place and can come unfastened during the spin cycle. Lichtman noted, “The rod can slide right out. And that’s what causes the washing machine to blow apart.”

With this development, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a warning on Wednesday, September 28 regarding the washing machine units, which were manufactured by Samsung between March 2011 and April 2016.
