Steven M. Sweat's insight:

Commercial buses are supposed to be subject to rigorous inspections for safety by the Federal Department of Transportation.  In the bus crash in Yucaipa, CA, it is alleged that the commercial vehicle was unsafe due to faulty brakes and other issues.  Now it is alleged that the DOT should have caught these violations and forced the carrier to repair the buses or be shut down.

City of Palm Springs CA pays $700K in police chokehold death lawsuit

City of Palm Springs CA pays $700K in police chokehold death lawsuit | California Personal Injury Attorney Information | Scoop.it
The City of Palm Springs will pay a $700,000 settlement to the family of a man who died after being roughly apprehended by city police two and a half years ago.
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

In yet another in a series of high profile, high monetary value settlements involving alleged police misconduct in Southern California, the city of Palm Springs has agreed to pay $700,000 in the death of a person beaten by city police officers.  The decedent died 6 days after being tackled, tased, pinned, choked and handcuffed.  Police tried to use CPR to revive him at the scene but, he died about a week later.  The legal resolution appears to be a "structured settlement" whereby $250,000 will be paid to attorneys and the remainder will be paid out in installments to the minor son of the decedent.

Ford Recalling Almost 600,000 Vehicles Over Steering and Stalling Problems

Ford Recalling Almost 600,000 Vehicles Over Steering and Stalling Problems | California Personal Injury Attorney Information | Scoop.it
For the steering problem, Ford is issuing recalls only for vehicles that were sold or are registered n states that depend heavily on winter road salt.
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

It seems that we are, unfortunately, in a record year for recalls related to automobiles or car parts that are prone to dangerous conditions that can cause injury or death.  Now Ford joins the fray by issuing a recall order for almost 600,000 vehicles.  Steering and stalling problems are not what you want to have when you are traveling at 65 m.p.h. down the highway!  If your vehicle is on this list, take it in immediately to be checked out and repaired.
