Instagram SUED Over Greedy New Terms Of Service!

instagram-terms-of-service-class-action-lawsuit-facebook court case

Ruh-roh, Facebook stockholders!

When Instagram quietly pushed through new Terms of Service last week, they never realized they'd face this degree of criticism!

Now a California-based law firm is filing a class-action civil lawsuit on behalf of pissed off customers and that might be bad news for the app's parent company, Facebook!

Instagram backtracked on their greedy new policies after the initial public outrage, but the plaintiffs aren't satisfied with the revised ToS!

The recently filed lawsuit states:

"In short, Instagram declares that 'possession is nine-tenths of the law and if you don't like it, you can't stop us.'"

Apparently any California residents who feel wronged are eligible to become a signatory in the suit, including disgruntled user Kim Kardashian!

Facebook isn't keen on paying Kimmy K, however.

Their spokesperson said:

"We believe this complaint is without merit and we will fight it vigorously."

We aren't sure these guys have a snowballs chance in court, but hopefully this will make social media companies think twice before making sweeping changes to their policies that might alienate a large user base!

Uh oh.

Ladies - and men who use anti-frizz products - if you bought Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum ANY TIME after Feb. 4th 2008 and live in California or New York, you could be due $$$ compensation!

Why, you might ask? Because the product is HIGHLY flammable, yet neglects to label itself as such!

And when used in conjunction with heated styling products

Wal-Mart Asks Supreme Court To Block Gender Bias Lawsuit!

Filed under: Legal Matters

Not cool!

Wal-Mart is facing potentially the largest class action employment lawsuit EVER over gender bias claims and now it is asking the Supreme Court to get involved!

The lawsuit was filed in 2001 by 6 women who claimed that the company was paying male employees more than female employees as well as passing women over for promotions that ultimately went to men!

They are seeking billions in damages!

Wal-Mart's lawyers are fighting California court rulings that allow a large amount of plaintiffs since the lawsuit includes any female employee that worked at the company from 1998 on!

An appeals court in San Francisco recently upheld the class action status for the suit back in April voting 6 to 5 and deeming the suit manageable despite the number of plaintiffs. But Wal-Mart is still fighting this ruling.

A decision by the Supreme Court will likely not be made until next year and lawyers for the women affected are expected to file a reply brief asking the court not to take up their case and let the lower ruling stand.

You go, girls!
