  • Woman in class-action lawsuit against Xerox dies

    LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL ^ | July 1, 2014 | JENNIFER ROBISON
    Time ran out for Linda Rolain. The Las Vegas woman died Monday, less than two weeks after her family went public with details of how enrollment trouble through the Nevada Health Link insurance exchange kept her from getting treatment in January for an aggressive brain tumor. Rolain was one of about 150 Nevadans suing Nevada Health Link contractor Xerox for enrollment mixups that left them without the health insurance they paid for. Rolain is the first to die of complications from an illness that her family said went untreated for lack of coverage. But observers close to her case say...
  • Obamacare class-action suit opens a new legal front

    Lawrence Basich is on the hook for $400,000 in medical bills that would have been paid by his insurer had his application been processed correctly by Nevada’s Obamacare exchange. In a closely-watched class-action lawsuit now gathering steam, Mr. Basich is one of two named plaintiffs in the suit against the state-run exchange — and the company that built it — that claims thousands of residents paid for health insurance, but never got covered because of technical glitches on the portal. The suit may be the first since the Obamacare rollout that pits actual consumers against both the state and its...

    NORWALK, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- During a routine test of our back-up systems Saturday morning, Xerox’s Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) system experienced a temporary shutdown. While the system is now up and running, beneficiaries in the 17 affected states continue to experience connectivity issues to access their benefits. This disruption impacts EBT beneficiaries who rely on the system for SNAP and WIC. Technical staff is addressing the issue and expect the system to be restored soon.
  • Xerox 7655 Overview Picture (Obot claims to replicate Obama LFBC pdf w/floating signature)

    08/07/2013 6:29:11 PM PDT · by Seizethecarp · 1,057 replies
    The following image is a composite created by scanning the WH LFBC using Xerox WorkCentre 7655 upside down using the automatic feeder. The resulting file was opened in Preview, the image rotated 180 degrees and printed to PDF. The resulting PDF was opened in preview, the layers unlocked and moved to the side. In addition, a close up of the signature was ‘blown up’ to show how the background layer, not surprisingly, has filled in some of the white that resulted from the separation of the background and foreground layers. Note how for example the signature block is fully separated.

    WXXI news ^ | 11/14/12 | crichton
    Xerox announced today they will lay off 2,500 workers world wide. This comes as a result of the company taking a $100 million charge to enable restructuring in the fourth quarter. The majority of cuts will be in the service side of the Xerox business, despite a growth in this section for the company. Services now account for more than half of Xerox's revenue. Employment in Rochester is primarily centered on the technology side of the business, or the company's legacy side, Xeroc officials say. No details have been released on the impact of any reductions in the Rochester area.

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | July 23, 2012 | L. GORDON CROVITZ
    Contrary to legend, it wasn't the federal government, and the Internet had nothing to do with maintaining communications during a war. A telling moment in the presidential race came recently when Barack Obama said: "If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." He justified elevating bureaucrats over entrepreneurs by referring to bridges and roads, adding: "The Internet didn't get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all companies could make money off the Internet." It's an urban legend that the government launched the Internet. The myth is that the Pentagon...

CBS News chief investigative correspondent Armen Keteyian reports parents and students at Dos Palos High School in Sacramento found out the hard way recently, when CBS affiliate KOVR pulled hundreds of student names, home addresses, cell phone and social security numbers off the hard drive of an old school copier.

    Health Reform: As major businesses lay out the impact of ObamaCare in dollars and jobs, two things are clear: the costs will be enormous, and the president's vow to focus on "jobs, jobs, jobs" can no longer be believed. Early returns on ObamaCare are coming in, and they belie proponents' claims of job creation and cost reduction. The costs will increase. They are merely being shifted to the states and to America's businesses, large and small. AT&T, the country's largest telephone company, announced Friday it will take a $1 billion first-quarter charge related to the new health care law. The...

    It's a concept the fictional spy Maxwell Smart would adore: the means to transform the diminutive camera in your cell phone into a portable document scanner. Imagine discreetly photographing contracts, notes jotted on a whiteboard or other handwritten information while on a research mission or a sales call, and later converting them into a format for processing, either in hard copy or on your computer. That's what scientists at Xerox Research Centre Europe in Grenoble, France, envisioned when they developed mobile document-imaging software, which should reach the market later this year. The technology works with camera phones that have a...

No arrests had been made as of midday, more than two hours after the shooting. Authorities did not say whether the two people who were shot were credit union customers or employees.

    NEW YORK -- The Securities and Exchange Commission and MCI, formerly known as WorldCom Inc. , are expected to announce as early as Monday a final agreement to settle charges that the telecom company misled investors with more than $11 billion of accounting fraud, according to people familiar with the matter, the Wall Street Journal has learned. As part of the settlement pact, MCI will pay the largest fine ever levied by the SEC against a corporation that isn't a broker-dealer, these people said. The fine is expected to be "exponentially larger" than the $10 million fine levied against...

The announcement jangled nerves still raw from WorldCom Inc.'s (WCOME) disclosure earlier this week that it inappropriately booked nearly $4 billion, inflating its results.
