Google is facing a class action lawsuit by two ex-employees who say they were discriminated against by their former employer. According to the complaint, the plaintiffs were discriminated against because they were white men with conservative political views. The lawsuit, which is scheduled to go to trial, comes after a September 2017 lawsuit which alleges that Google systematically paid its male employees more than its female employees. In a statement, the company stated that they "look forward to defending against Mr. Damore’s lawsuit in court.”

Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear has filed a lawsuit alleging that an opioid manufacturer flooded the state with prescription painkillers while overdose deaths were on the rise. The lawsuit, filed Monday in Franklin Circuit Court, says that McKesson Corporation distributed 18.4 million doses of painkillers in Floyd County between January 2010 and the end of 2016, which amounts to 477 pills for every adult and child across the county. The complaint accuses the manufacturer of unfair, misleading, and deceptive business practices.

A number of people arrested last year during inauguration-day protests in Washington, D.C., have filed a lawsuit alleging false arrest. The complaint blames the Metropolitan Police Department officials for failure to distinguish actual rioters from peaceful protesters during a mass arrest at the event. The lawsuit states that police failed to identify and apprehend individuals smashing windows and vandalizing property during the protest, leading to the arrests of a number of peaceful participants. Of those arrested, some of the protesters were held for up to nine hours without access to a bathroom, food or water, according to the lawsuit.
