Video Visits Taking Place at Terminals

If a family member or friend of yours was in prison in another state, you might be glad to hear that JPay, Inc. offered video conferencing visits, priced in thirty-minute increments.

Facebook, Inc.’s difficulties with fake accounts have been in the news because of their political influence. But this complaint takes up the problems fake accounts cause Facebook advertisers.

Q Club Condominium and Hotel in Fort Lauderdale

Q Club Hotel, LLC is part hotel and part residential condominium. That is, the owners of its 333 condos can rent out their units to hotel guests. The residents and hotel guests thus share some of the facilities (such as the front desk, elevators, and pool) and residents must pay a portion of certain Shared Costs of the hotel and condominium expenses. But the complaint for this class action claims that Q Club is now charging an additional fee for housekeeping services that were before included in the Shared Costs, breaching the condominium’s contracts.

American Airlines Plane in Flight

A deal’s a deal—or so Plaintiffs Suzette Janoff and Jenise Rusby believe. According to the complaint for this class action, American Airlines, Inc. promised the two certain benefits if they left their jobs with the company. The benefits included free travel pass privileges, good for the rest of their lives. But the complaint claims that American has gone back on its word and has switched their travel pass privileges to an inferior category.
