  • Romney Administration Failure Tied to Meningitis Deaths

    Rochester, MI. October 25, 2012. Alyson Oliver, a Michigan attorney representing several injured victims of the fungal meningitis outbreak and the lead attorney in the effort to consolidate the fungal meningitis cases nationally, announced today a new website,, designed to educate the public about the what Oliver believes to be the apparent failure of the Massachusetts Department of Health and Human Services to adequately address deficiencies at the New England Compounding Center (NECC), the source of contaminated drugs linked to deaths and widespread injuries.

    Democrats again used former President George W. Bush as a foe in their latest TV ad campaign, driving home the point Republicans would restore policies that helped create the economic downturn. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) released a new cable ad Friday that harped on their campaign message that the November midterm elections will be a choice between Democratic policies that will bring the country out of the recession versus Republican policies that helped created it. No Republican is used in the ad aside from Bush -- who is shown saying "you can fool me but you can't get fooled...

    Convicted cigar smuggler wants juror to talk December 14, 2003 BY DAVE NEWBART Staff Reporter Advertisement Throughout Skokie attorney Richard "Mick'' Connors' federal trial on charges he smuggled thousands of Cuban cigars into the United States, he contended he was simply doing research for a fictional book about illegal smuggling. Now, more than a year after his conviction, the case is taking more twists than a Scott Turow novel. Thursday, both the U.S. attorney and Connors' attorney, Jack Cutrone, asked U.S. District Court Judge Ronald Guzman for permission to interview the jury forewoman. Cutrone claims he has evidence of a...
