    Two companies, Milliman and Ingenix, buy individual prescription information from Pharmacy benefit Managers (PBMs) and compile that information into reports. A report generally covers your prescriptions for a five-year period, including dosages, dates, refills, and prescribing doctors. Insurance companies buy prescription drug reports to verify what you put on your application for individual life, health, or similar coverage. Insurance companies also use the reports to determine risk, set...

    Consult an attorney, and do so before you talk to anyone else. Your insurance company does not necessarily have your best interests in mind. If they can deny the claim, they may try to find a way to do so. The attorney may then look to you, since they likely took this case on contingency and don't get paid if they don't recover something for their client (your former nanny). Many attorneys offer a free initial consultation. You can find someone on Avvo, or you can try the Fairfax...

    Whether or not you have claims will depend on a number of factors. You should gather all of your documents, account statements, etc. and find a lawyer on Avvo or through the PIABA website and discuss this with them. Your account is probably covered by an arbitration agreement as well. Don't delay as there are time limits for being able to bring a claim. Best of luck.

    The breakdown will generally be determined by the settlement documents. Possible variables could include number of years of service, title or role, whether you are a current or former employee, etc. If the case has already settled, then a notice may have been sent out to the workers. This will often spell out the formula used to determine the awards to individuals. You can also ask the attorneys that represent the workers. While they may not be able to give you an exact figure, they...

    I assume you are writing about the group of cases (19 or so) brought by a group of writers against television networks, studios and talent agencies claiming age discrimination in the hiring and representation of writers age 40 or over. Those cases were filed in Los Angeles Superior Court. The Judge presiding over the cases is Judge Emilie Elias. You can write to the Court at the following address: Central Civil West Courthouse 600 S Commonwealth Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90005 Be sure...

    I agree with the above answer - you need an attorney to look out for your best interests. And in many cases, your knowledge or belief that something is or isn't a crime doesn't have anything to do with whether or not you are guilty of that crime. Many crimes are so called "strict liability" offenses - meaning that the prosecutor does not have to show or prove that you had the mental intent to commit a crime.

    I think you are discussing craigslist, as I have never heard of Centralist, and a quick online search did not reveal any website using that name with a classified service. All users of craigslist submit to that website's terms of use, which note that they are not responsible for the content of ads placed through their system and ask users to perform their own due diligence. It is theoretically possible for a regulator or law enforcement official to try and accomplish something here, but a...

    I agree with my colleague. Most cases involving injuries from drugs or medical devices are handled on an individual basis. These individual cases are then coordinated (and sometimes consolidated) before a single judge, or in rare cases before a few judges. One or more law firms are appointed lead counsel to organize and run the cases and then, depending on what happens, the cases may be settled in one big group, or in small batches (e.g. all cases from XYZ law firm, or all cases where users...

  9. Am I entitled to proceeds from a class action lawsuit against a former employer even though I no longer work there

    It depends on a number of factors such as when the case settled, when claims had to be filed by, and whether the case has been closed with all of the money distributed already. There have been a number of class actions brought against Amtrak over the years for discrimination. Some have settled and some are still in the courts. Without knowing more about your situation, it is difficult to know which, if any, of the class actions you might have been entitled to participate in. For example,...

    The prior answers are correct - you can search the PACER database for actions filed in Federal court. There are also a few other free places to get limited information. Top Class Actions is a website that lists many, but not all class actions. You can use their search engine to see if there are any pages about the company you are researching. The site is largely focused on settlements and new case investigations, so there may not be much detail on cases in between those two extremes....
