New Jersey cemetery sued for switching bodies

Damages to be sought in Oracle - Google lawsuit remains unsettled

As the market for smartphone technologies continues to grow, so do the legal disputes between large technology corporations.

New Jersey business owners likely to be affected by teen tanning ban

Entrepreneurs who started a small tanning business in New Jersey are finding their business threatened by a new law making its way through the state legislature. The bill takes aim at tanning salons, looking to ban minors from tanning. Politicians and lobbyists cite skin cancer research as the reason to prevent teens from using the service.

Make room for accommodations when drafting employee contracts

Employers need to make sure they are properly incorporating the Civil Rights Act of 1964, among other federal employment laws, into their employees' contracts and employee handbooks as well as in hiring policies. A federal judge recently decided in favor of a lawsuit brought by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against clothing chain Abercrombie & Fitch. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission accused the retail chain of discriminating against a job applicant through their corporate "look policy."

U.S. utility mergers encountering fewer obstacles for approval

In 2006, state officials repeatedly shot down attempts for a merger between Exelon and Public Service Enterprise Group Inc., a utility company based in Newark, New Jersey. Antitrust regulators were concerned that such a move might allow the resulting company to monopolize regional power markets and gouge prices. Other proposed utility mergers were rejected as well, due to companies unwilling to make all the concessions requested of them by regulators.

Businesses say judges interpreting Wal-Mart decision too narrowly

Attorneys who represent businesses have been watching to see how the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the giant Wal-Mart sex discrimination case might affect pending class-action employment litigation. In the weeks following the case, the class-action status of several plaintiff groups who have filed lawsuits against their employers has been upheld. These decisions have prompted some businesses to complain that judges have been interpreting the Supreme Court's recent ruling too narrowly.
