Levaquin

Levaquin (levofloxacin) is an antibiotic that is part of a class of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones. Other antibiotics in this class include Cipro (ciprofloxacin), Noroxin (norfloxacin), Floxin (ofloxacin), and Factive (gemifloxacin). These antibiotics have been known to cause, or increase the risk for, tendinitis, tendon rupture, peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage), aneurysm, and aortic dissection. Despite years of FDA warnings, patients with alternative treatment options are still being prescribed these medications and at times find themselves facing temporary or permanent disabling side effects.

Volkswagen

On September 18, 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced findings that Volkswagen had installed software on diesel cars that enabled them to cheat on emissions tests. Numerous civil and criminal actions and investigations were launched as a result, and three class action settlements have occurred to-date; however, some VW owners have been excluded from those settlements.

Meracord/Noteworld

The Paynter Law Firm filed multiple class-action lawsuits involving Meracord, LLC (formerly NoteWorld, LLC), a major player in the for-profit debt relief industry. Multiple lawsuits were filed by consumers against Meracord and related entities alleging that Meracord conspired, along with scores—if not hundreds—of “front-end” debt relief companies, to defraud indebted consumers by falsely representing their services, the fees they would charge, and other important facts. A Washington Court certified a Class in the action and awarded damages, and the Class then pursued recovery against two insurance companies that issued bonds on Meracord’s behalf. Read more.

NCAA Player Likeness

The In re NCAA Student-Athlete Name & Likeness Licensing Litigation began with The Paynter Law Firm and Hagens Berman filing suit against the NCAA, Electronic Arts, and the Collegiate Licensing Company, alleging that those entities had unlawfully used the names and likenesses of NCAA student athletes in sports videogames distributed by Electronic Arts.

After five years of litigation, the Class of student-athletes reached a $60 million combined settlement with the NCAA and Electronic Arts. For more information on that settlement, visit www.ncaa-ea-likeness-settlement.com.
