A class action lawsuit is a legal proceeding initiated by a group of people. These individuals share common circumstances, damages, or injuries caused by the same product, action, or company. For example, if a pharmaceutical company releases a harmful drug, all affected patients could join a class action suit against the firm.
The unified claim of a class action lawsuit allows for efficient court proceedings and can ensure fair compensation distribution. Now, let us take a look at three different class action lawsuits that you should know about if you are a resident of New York City.
1. Tylenol Autism Lawsuits
Although women have been advised by healthcare providers for decades to use the acetaminophen-based drug Tylenol to relieve pain during pregnancy, it has now been discovered that acetaminophen is not as safe as it was believed.
So, affected parents are now filing lawsuits against companies that sold Tylenol, such as the retailer Walmart, to pursue compensation for things like medical bills and the lost wages they incurred due to managing their children’s conditions.
The U.S. District Judge Denise Cote, for the Southern District of New York, has been presiding over the lawsuits regarding Tylenol.
Seeing as more than 100 plaintiffs have used the same evidence to file…

Elijah Hutchinson Appointed As Executive Director Of Mayor’s Office Of Climate & Environmental JusticeBy Jonas Bronck
Mario D’Agostino, who passed away June 14, 2020, was a true leader in his community in the Bronx and left his mark on the neighborhood and everyone, who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Mario was an honorable man, who changed people’s lives with his beautiful mind, strong work ethic, positive outlook on life and investing in his favorite part of New York City, the Bronx.
You should know that in one of his first public appearances, after having resigned as Governor for New York State, Andrew Cuomo will be visiting the South Bronx. His visit to the Bronx is to meet with Members of “The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, which I preside over.
As you know, last summer Governor Cuomo resigned, when he was accused and practically abandoned by all his friends, politicians, and community groups, whom he had helped in the past. These so-called friends, and groups that were all too happy to kiss his ring, joined the “cancel culture” environment, that plaques us all, without due process, they washed their hands with a dismissive attitude, sending the message “Crucify him, crucify him”.
Several courts and judges have dismissed the allegations of “sexual harassment” against Governor Cuomo. With this episode behind him, Governor Cuomo has begun to visit and make public appearances by visiting different faith-based organizations and community groups.
It is very important for you to know that Governor Cuomo’s first public visit was to “God’s Battalion of Prayer Temple” in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Sunday March 06, 2022. His next planned visit is to the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization” in the South Bronx.
You should also know that in a recent poll, Governor Cuomo, without being a candidate nor having announced his political aspirations, has polled with just four (4) points behind Governor Kathy Hochul.
As you know, Governor Hochul was a friend and she was handpicked by Cuomo to be his Lieutenant Governor. However, she was among one of the first to throw him under the bus, in the midst of the allegations, launched against him.
I imagine that those four (4) points will evaporate very soon and Governor Hochul will have to consider asking Governor Cuomo for his support, if she wishes to be officially elected by the people to the governorship.
As President of the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, I am looking forward to hosting Governor Cuomo on Thursday, March 17, 2022. We welcome him to the South…

When you are running a small business, minimizing your carbon footprint, and improving your environmental impact might not seem particularly important. The chances are you spend most of your time thinking about how to improve profits and sales, rather than focusing on the environment. However, taking an eco-friendlier approach to business could have a bigger impact on your bottom line than you would think. Faced with compounding issues like rising greenhouse gases and pollution, consumers are increasingly voting green with their purchases.
Many consider ethics and sustainable practices when making a purchase. Creating a more sustainable business could be the key to staying competitive in a changing landscape, no matter which industry you serve. The good news for small business owners is investing in sustainability does not have to be as complex or expensive as it might seem. The investments you make now could even save you time and money in the long term. Here are some of the best ways to get started.
Rethink Your Business Fleet
If you have your own commercial fleet, the chances are your vehicles are one of the biggest factors influencing your sustainability. No matter how careful you are when planning routes to preserve fuel and reduce emissions, traditional vehicles still have an impact on the environment. Switching to a series of electric vehicles (EVs) could be an excellent way to demonstrate your commitment to environmentally friendly practices. What is more, you could end up saving more money on fuel in the long-term. The key to success is choosing the right solutions. Review guides online to help you choose the best chargers, technology, and resources for your business.

The New York Yankees will head to historic Fenway Park to take on the Boston Red Sox in a four game series from September 11 to September 14, 2023.
The two clubs have failed to meet up to the lofty expectations they have earned this season, but whether they are playing for pride or vying for a last-gasp attempt at the postseason as they face off against one another, you can be certain that you will not want to miss the final chapter of this year’s edition of the showdown.
The fierce, storied rivalry between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees hardly needs any introduction. It is one of the most bitter rivalries in all of sports, and it is hard to do justice to everything that has gone down between both sides over the past 104 years since the Red Sox ignited it by trading famed pitcher and slugger Babe Ruth to the Yankees, kickstarting decades of despair for Boston while igniting one of the greatest dynasties the sporting world has ever seen in the Bronx.
Not Just Another Year…
We have seen the rivalry take on a number of different forms over the past decade. The two clubs met in the postseason in 2018 and 2021, and we have seen some fierce, neck and neck pennant races as each of the two vies for a shot at the American League East division crown down the…
