Congress is in recess this week for the Columbus Day holiday, but will return next week with full schedules in both chambers.

The House will focus heavily on the leadership race to replace retiring Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) when it returns next week. With Representative Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) sudden decision last week to drop out of the speaker’s race, House leadership and legislation as a whole are in limbo, with the consequences ranging from highway reauthorization expiring October 29; to a threat to the debt limit, which must be addressed by November 5; to Medicare premium increases; to federal government spending, with the current continuing resolution scheduled to expire December 11; to the Positive Train Control reprieve deadline expiring December 31; to a need to renew the Export-Import Bank, whose authorization expired at the end of June.

The Senate will return next week to address the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (S. 697), attempting to reform the Toxic Substances Reform Act for the first time in nearly four decades, and senators are working

New Jersey Based Force Place Insurance Class Action Can Proceed

Force-placed-ins-money-house-article-8Newark, NJAccording to court documents, plaintiff Robert DiGiacomo took on no fewer than four defendants in his class-action Force-placed insurance lawsuit. Those defendants include Statebridge Company LLC, American Modern, American Modern Insurance Group (AMIG), and Midwest Enterprises. Allegations include breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, violation of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act (NJCFA), breach of fiduciary duty, and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).

The defendants, or so it is alleged, “manipulated the force-placed insurance market through collusive agreements involving kickback arrangements and other forms of improper compensation,” DiGiacomo says in his Force-Place Insurance class action.

The defendants immediately filed a petition with the court to have the lawsuit dismissed on various grounds. In his decision this past June, District Court Judge Joseph E. Irenas of the US District Court for the District of New Jersey agreed with the defendants and granted their motion, in part, related to DiGiacomo’s breach of contract claims. However, the remainder of the defendant’s motion to dismiss was denied.

The Lender insurance lawsuit will proceed.

Forced-Placed Insurance Lawsuits regularly appear on the horizon when insurance companies and

Power Morcellation at the Center of Yet Another Cancer Lawsuit

Power-morcellator-surgery-articlePhiladelphia, PAYet another Laparoscopic Power Morcellation lawsuit has been filed in Philadelphia, this time against the manufacturer of the PKS PlasmaSORD Bipolar Morcellator. The co-plaintiff in the case alleges that use of the device inadvertently spread cancer cells throughout her abdomen.

Power morcellation is yet another adjunct of the increasing prevalence of endoscopy or minimally invasive surgery that dispenses with the need for large incisions (together with longer recovery times) in favor of scopes that contain tiny cameras, and through which surgeons can deploy instruments to perform surgical procedures through much smaller incisions.

This type of abdominal procedure is known as laparoscopy, and differs from arthroscopy only in that the latter involves joints such as knees and other skeletal joints. But the same idea holds true – rather than a large incision that exposes the entire joint (arthroscopy) or a large section of abdomen (laparoscopy), a small incision is made through which a scope with camera and instruments is inserted for minimally invasive surgery.

Think of it as an “inside job.”

Power morcellators fit into this category. The latter is a device capable of breaking up tissue such as fibroids through a scope. The problem
