Family Wins $4 Million in Wrongful Death Suit Against Abortionist Kermit Gosnell

Following the death of a woman at a Philadelphia abortion business in 2009, Common Pleas Judge Jacqueline Allen has awarded 4 million dollars in a wrongful death suit filed by victim’s family.

Karnamaya Mongar, 41, died at ‘The Women’s Medical Society’ due to drug-overdose. The investigating Grand Jury regarded the business as a ‘House of Horrors’ due to unsterilized medical utensils, unlicensed anesthesia administers, blood on the equipment and floor and dismembered bodies of babies kept in jars, and convicted Abortionist Kermit Gosnell of involuntary manslaughter.

Recently, the victim’s daughter Yashoda Devi Gurung has been awarded $3.25 million in punitive damages and $650,000 in compensatory damages.

Parents Sue Manufacturer and Amazon After Teenager Dies of Caffeine Powder Overdose

arbitrationFollowing the death of 18-year-old Logan Stiner of LaGrange, Ohio, due to caffeine powder overdose, his parents have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the powder manufacturer and Amazon.

According to Dennis and Katie Stiner, one of their son’s classmates bought the Hard Rhino caffeine powder from Amazon. Their son consumed the powder and was later found dead in the family home. The doctors concluded that his death was caused due to “cardiac arrhythmia and seizure caused by acute caffeine toxicity.”

As per the consumer advocacy site CaffeineInformer, there are more than 4700 milligrams of caffeine in a teaspoon of the Hard Rhino powder while a standard 16-oz coffee cup contains only around 320 milligrams.

Logan’s parents alleged that even though the Hard Rhino label says the powder “can be dangerous if abused” and “failure to follow safety guidelines can result in serious injury or death”, the product label does not provide any specific instructions on how to use it properly.

The lawsuit does not only name Logan’s classmate who bought the powder from Amazon and the company that packages the Hard Rhino powder, but also seeks compensation from the online retailer Amazon.
