The complaint claims:

    A Colorado geophysicist accused of beating up a police officer during the Capitol riots claimed to federal authorities he wasn’t violently attacking the cop—just simply “patting him on the back.” Jeffrey Sabol, 51, was charged with civil disorder after he was captured on video dragging a Metropolitan Police officer down a flight of stairs while another rioter hit the cop with an American flag during the Jan. 6 siege. In another video, Sabol was seen holding a police baton across the officer’s neck. After the savage attack, Sabol bought a plane ticket to Zurich in an attempt to flee, prosecutors said. The geophysicist was arrested Friday at Westchester Medical Center after he admitted to assaulting an officer on the steps of the Capitol in a “fit of rage,” prosecutors said. A newly unsealed criminal complaint states the MPD officer was trying to prevent rioters from entering the Capitol when he...
    Walmart is once again playing fast and loose with the rules when it comes to labeling goods “Made in the USA,” according to an industry watchdog. The world’s biggest retailer — which five years ago managed to dodge a federal inquiry over its labeling practices by promising to change them — is now claiming on its website that goods that it sells like vacuum cleaners, towels and plastic storage bins are made in America when they aren’t, according to Truth In Advertising. In a Tuesday complaint filed with the Federal Trade Commission, the nonprofit consumer advocacy group noted that Walmart claimed in a Facebook ad last fall that nearly two-thirds of the millions of products it sells are made in America. Meanwhile, however, only 2,000 items are listed under its site’s “Made in USA” filter, according to the group, also known as TINA.org. “The truth is consumers can’t be...

    Four more women have come forward to accuse former Fox News anchor Ed Henry of sexual misconduct and say the network knew of his alleged behavior and looked the other way.  In an amended complaint filed Monday, six women in all, including Henry's initial accusers Jennifer Eckhart, 31, and Cathy Areu, 49, are ramping up their sexual harassment accusations against him and claiming Fox News knew about the allegations years before he was fired in July.  The complaint names former sports reporter Roxie Marroquin and Brooke Hammerling, who owns her own media relations company, who recount their own experiences with 'horn dog' Henry, 49, who has been married since 2010.  It also provides the accounts of two Jane Does, one who is a former senior Fox News producer and the other who is still employed by Fox as an associate producer and claims she was in an 'abusive relationship' with...
    Chopard's co-owner has been accused of being the 'Ghislaine Maxwell' of the jewelry world after she allegedly 'pimped out' herself by being overtly sexual to rich male clients and suggested a female employee do the same, a federal sexual harassment complaint claims.  Desiree Gallas, a former public relations representative for Chopard, has alleged that her boss Caroline Scheufele would offer herself up sexually to wealthy men and implied she should do the same in order to sell high-end jewelry pieces.  The 38-year-old leveled her accusations against Chopard in a Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint that was first filed in October last year.   Gallus, who says she worked at the company for five years until she was fired in 2019, has accused her boss and Chopard of supporting a 'sex for dollars' culture and claimed her firing was retaliatory. It is not clear from the complaint if Scheufele or Gallus ever had sex with...
    Three female employees of a Michigan Medical Examiner’s Office have been fired amid an investigation into allegations of a ‘toxic work environment’ that included disturbing claims of sexual harassment and racism.

The worker, who has not been named, also accused a supervisor and three colleagues of mocking black families who were inquiring about the deaths of their loved ones, hanging pornography up around the office and then bullying any women who protested about the lurid decorations. The employee...

    Google got slapped with a $5 billion proposed class action lawsuit this week, with plaintiffs accusing the search giant of illegally invading the privacy of millions of users by tracking their internet use even when they browsed in “incognito” mode. The complaint, filed in federal court in San Jose, Calif., argues that Google learned the “most intimate and potentially embarrassing things” about users’ searches by gathering data through Google Analytics, Google Ad Manager and other apps and web plug-ins. Google “cannot continue to engage in the covert and unauthorized data collection from virtually every American with a computer or phone,” the complaint said. Google has said that it will defend itself against the claims, with a spokesperson saying that the browser “clearly states” that websites “might be able to collect information about your browsing activity” when a new Incognito tab is opened. The complaint said the proposed class likely includes...
