Q. What is the diffrence between a mdl and a class action? Are the depuy Law suits now lumped together or not?
A: In response to your inquiry regarding DePuy lawsuits being "lumped together" - currently, there is an MDL (MDL 2197) in the Northern District of Ohio before Judge Katz. That MDL involves the DePuy ASR Hip Implant. This is a Federal MDL, meaning only cases proceeding in federal courts in the U.S. would be involved. The DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant has not been made into an MDL, however, Plaintiffs Attorneys have sought creation of such an MDL and the Judicial Panel on Multi-district litigation will conduct a hearing on the issue on May 16, 2011 in Louisville, KY. It is not clear whether a potential DePuy Pinnacle MDL would join the ASR MDL 2197. There is not a federal DePuy class action, for either the ASR Implant or the Pinnacle Implant.
Q. Where can I find the WA state code that defines the business type "Sole Proprietorship"?
A: "'Sole proprietorship' means a legal form of organization owned by one person meeting the requirements of RCW 18.04.195." Wash. Rev. Code Ann. § 18.04.025.
Q. IS IT LEGAL FOR POLICE TO SEARCH YOUR TRASH?
A: The Police generally cannot search your home without a warrant. The Supreme Court of Colorado has held that "Home and office occupants who place trash in nontransparent trash bags for collection do so for the limited purpose of waste collection and disposal and do not thereby intend to surrender their privacy interest in the trash so as to permit or authorize a police search of the bags containing the trash ... Simply stated, the mere possibility that some member of the public or a trash collector might search one's nontransparent and tied or otherwise secured trash bags should not be the basis for authorizing similar activity by governmental officials." People v. Hillman, 834 P.2d 1271, 1282 (Colo. 1992). Therefore, the answer to your question would depend on whether the police had a warrant to search the trash, and whether the trash was in a non-see-through, securely closed bag.
