Petrillo & Goldberg Law Instrumental in Significant New Jersey Law Change Benefitting Motor Vehicle Accident Victims

Pennsauken, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) September 18, 2017 – Senior trial attorney Scott M. Goldberg, Esquire and firm Associate Jeffrey M. Thiel, Esquire recently announced a successful Appellate Division victory significantly changing New Jersey law benefitting motor vehicle accident victims.

“Imagine that you’re sitting at a red light at 3:00 A.M. in the morning and some drunk driver smashes into the rear of your vehicle sending you to the hospital. You walk out with a $10,000.00 hospital bill and $5,000.00 of property damage to your vehicle. Your minimum medical expense deductible is $1,200.00. Your property damage deductible is usually around $500.00,” began Goldberg.

“The law in New Jersey says you can recoup your property damage deductible from the other driver’s insurance, but not your medical expense deductible and co-pay. So you are out $1,200.00 due to absolutely no fault of your own,” he continued.

“This is established law in New Jersey,” explained Goldberg. “Then shortly after this became the law, New Jersey law changed to permit motorists to purchase reduced medical expense coverage, commonly called PIP or no-fault,” Goldberg continued. “So the issue became, what happens when your motor vehicle accident medical expenses exceed your reduced PIP coverage?”

According to Goldberg several of the trial courts in New Jersey were extending the New Jersey medical expense deductible exclusion to make innocent motor vehicle accident victims be responsible for their medical expenses exceeding their limited PIP benefits.

“And we had just such a case,” said Goldberg. “Our client had only $15,000.00 of medical expenses or PIP benefits. But her bills exceeded this by about $10,000.00.” “The trial judge said, effectively, ‘Too bad. You chose the lesser policy, so now you’re stuck with the excess $10,000.00 of bills,’ ” explained Goldberg.

“So we appealed. The Appellate Division overruled the trial court and held that our client’s excess medical expenses were, in fact, recoverable against the driver responsible for the accident.” “It just makes sense,” said Goldberg. “And better yet, the opinion has been published which means that it controls all future cases in New Jersey with such issues going forward.”

“Our associate Jeff Thiel did a great job on the appeal. Not only did our client receive justice, but this significant law change will benefit any similarly situated New Jersey motor vehicle accident victim who incurs medical expenses in excess of their PIP benefits in the future,” added Goldberg.

Petrillo and Goldberg Law is a law firm in Camden County, New Jersey that specializes in the representation of motor vehicle, work related and other accident victims.

Female Employee Files Sexual Harassment, Discrimination Lawsuit Against Binary Capital Ventures LLC

Los Angeles, CA (Law Firm Newswire) September 18, 2017 – Ann Lai, a former employee at a Silicon Valley Venture Capital firm, filed a sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuit against Binary Capital and its co-founder Justin Caldbeck, alleging that she and five other women have faced repeated unwanted sexual advances while working for the Venture Capital firm.

According to the complaint, Lai immediately began experiencing various incidents of discriminatory behavior toward women in the workplace when she joined the firm in 2014. Lai alleges that she and other women faced repeated unwanted and inappropriate sexual advances while working at Binary. Male employees including co-founder Caldbeck made many comments referencing her attractiveness, and witnessed similar comments directed toward other female employees. She also claims to have witnessed inappropriate behavior toward women during company outings.

However, when Lai raised her concerns with her supervisors, the company did not respond to her complaint. As a result, Lai announced that she was going to resign from the firm. After Binary co-founder Jeff Caldbeck persuaded Lai to continue with the company, she stayed on for a while longer. When nothing changed, she made plans to seek new employment.

“Women have a right to be treated fairly and with respect in their workplace,” says Strong Advocates Executive Director and Los Angeles employment lawyer Betsy Havens. “Ms. Lai is one of many professional women who have been forced to endure unwanted sexual advances by male superiors. By filing this lawsuit, Lai is taking her power back to get the compensation she deserves.”

Lai claimed that Caldbeck threatened that she would “never work again.” Three days later, Lai resigned. She searched for employment in the San Francisco Bay Area but allegedly was unable to secure a position at any company in her field. Eventually, she was able to find a job in New York.

In her complaint, Lai asserts that Caldbeck interfered with her job search by falsely telling employers that she had been fired for poor work performance. She also alleged that before leaving Binary, the defendants made threats to her reputation, asked suspicious questions about projects and denied her request for a work-related expense reimbursement check.

Additionally, she claims that Binary did not maintain a gender neutral environment and practiced behavior that went against anti-discrimination laws, such as making crude commentary about female employees’ attractiveness and implementing a dress code for female employees.

After an article in The Information detailing Caldbeck’s unwanted sexual advances toward dozens of female employees at Binary was published in late June, co-founder Justin Caldbeck and Matt Mazzeo, a partner at the firm, resigned.

SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Reminds Shareholders with Losses on their Investment in Blue Apron Holdings, Inc. of Class Action Lawsuit and Upcoming Deadline – APRN

NEW YORK, Sept. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Blue Apron Holdings, Inc. (“Blue Apron” or the “Company”) (NYSE:APRN) and certain of its officers.   The class action, filed in United States District Court, Southern District of New York, and docketed under 17-cv-06517, is on behalf of a class consisting of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Blue Apron securities:  (1) pursuant and/or traceable to Blue Apron’s false and misleading Registration Statement and Prospectus, issued in connection with the Company’s initial public offering on or about June 29, 2017 (the “IPO” or the “Offering”); and/or (2) on the open market between June 29, 2017 and August 9, 2017, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), seeking to recover damages caused by Defendants’ violations of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”).

If you are a shareholder who purchased Blue Apron securities between June 29, 2017, and August 9, 2017, both dates inclusive, you have until October 16, 2017, to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.  A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com.   To discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll-free, Ext. 9980. Those who inquire by e-mail are encouraged to include their mailing address, telephone number, and the number of shares purchased. 

[Click here to join this class action]

Blue Apron Holdings, Inc. operates as a holding company. The Company, through its subsidiaries, provides meal-kit delivery services. Blue Apron sends weekly boxes of pre-portioned ingredients with instructions for customers to cook meals at home.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:  (i) rather than continue to significantly increase spending on advertising, Blue Apron had already decided to significantly reduce spending on advertising in Q2 2017, which would hurt sales and profit margins in future quarters; (ii) Blue Apron was already experiencing adverse on-time in-full rates, meaning orders were not arriving on time or with all the ingredients needed, which was hurting customer retention; (iii) the Company had encountered delays in Q2 2017 associated with its new factory in Linden, New Jersey, a factory which is expected to eventually account for more than half of the meal kits Blue Apron sells; (iv) existing and already-materialized delays at the Company’s new factory in Linden were resulting in additional delays in new product rollouts, which was limiting Blue Apron’s ability to gain new customers and retain existing ones; (v) the foregoing delays would hurt the Company’s bottom line in the near-term, particularly affecting the important metric of lifetime value per customer (i.e., the net profit Blue Apron makes off a customer); (vi) the Company was unable to fully execute its new product initiatives; (vii) Blue Apron had already decided it would be forced to change its strategic approach to managing the business for the remainder of 2017; and (viii) as a result of the foregoing, Blue Apron’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.   

On August 10, 2017, Blue Apron revealed that it had encountered delays associated with its new factory in Linden, New Jersey, leading to additional delays in new product rollouts, thereby impeding Blue Apron’s ability to gain new customers and maintain current customers.

Following this news, Blue Apron’s share price fell $1.10, or more than 17%, to close at $5.14 on August 10, 2017, a 50% drop from the IPO price.

The Klein Law Firm Reminds Investors of a Class Action Commenced on Behalf of Forterra, Inc. Shareholders (FRTA)

NEW YORK, Sept. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of Forterra, Inc. (NASDAQ:FRTA) who purchased shares between October 18, 2016 and August 14, 2017 and/or pursuant and/or traceable to the Company’s October 21, 2016 Initial Public Offering. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.

In particular, the complaint alleges that the Registration Statement used to conduct the IPO contained inaccurate statements and omitted material information including that: (1) at the time of the IPO, organic sales in Forterra’s Drainage and Water segments had significantly declined; (2) Forterra was experiencing increased pricing pressure due to competition and continued softness in its concrete and steel pipe business; (3) Forterra had been losing business in its important pipe and precast business due in large part to operational problems at its production plants; and (4) Forterra had undisclosed material weaknesses in its internal controls that prevented it from accurately reporting and forecasting its financial results.

If you suffered a loss during the class period and wish to obtain additional information, please contact Joseph Klein, Esq. by telephone at 212-616-4899 or visit http://www.kleinstocklaw.com/pslra-sbm/forterra-inc?wire=3.

Zillow Group, Inc. provides e-commerce services. The Company provides information about homes, real estate listings, and mortgages through their website and mobile applications. Zillow serves homeowners, buyers, sellers, renters, and real estate professionals throughout the United States.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:  (i) the Company’s co-marketing program did not comply with the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act; and (ii) as a result of the foregoing, Zillow’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.   

On August 8, 2017, the Company filed a quarterly report on Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission, announcing the Company’s financial and operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

The quarterly report stated that in April 2017, Zillow received a Civil Investigative Demand from the CFPB.  On August 8, 2017, Zillow advised investors that the CFPB has concluded its investigation and “has invited us to discuss a possible settlement and indicated that it intends to pursue further action if those discussions do not result in a settlement.”  

Following this news, Zillow’s share price fell $7.43, or 15.5%, over the following two trading days to close at $40.50 on August 10, 2017.
