There were 12 categories including best male and female pedigrees, best male and female puppies and best rescue. The pageant was held to raise money for a dog rescue charity.
Lawsuit Filed Against Sackler Family
Over 600 cities, counties and Native American tribes filed a federal lawsuit against the Sackler family, owners of the Purdue Pharma LP accusing them of creating the opioid addiction crisis through the use of misleading marketing of the painkiller OxyContin.
"Eight people in a single family made the choices that caused much of the opioid epidemic," the suit says, then naming the eight defendants. "Because they controlled their own privately held drug company, the Sackler Defendants had the power to decide how addictive narcotics were sold. They got more patients on opioids, at higher doses, for longer, than ever before. They paid themselves billions of dollars. They are responsible for addiction, overdose, and death that damaged millions of lives. They should be held accountable now."
The lawsuit wants the Sacklers to issue "corrective advertising statements" and the plaintiffs say they deserve compensation, citing the increased costs for law enforcement, child care for children of people addicted to opioids and physical and mental health treatment.
Google and Facebook Fraud
Evaldas Rimasauskas pled guilty to one count of wire fraud to U.S. District Judge George Daniels in Manhattan. He was charged with creating a scheme to defraud over $100 million from Facebook and Google. Rimasauskas will forfeit the $49.7 million he obtained from the scheme and could face 30 years in prison. Rimasauskas is from the Lithuania and was extradited to the United States in August 2017. The scheme is called a "business email compromise," where they ask for money using emails from companies that regularly make wire transfers.
