Rapper arrested for drug possession at California airport

Rapper 2 Chainz was taken into custody at LAX after a search of his checked baggage allegedly revealed marijuana and promethazine. Promethazine is used as the main ingredient in a dangerous drug cocktail called sizzurp that is well known among rappers. Although promethazine is legal when properly dispensed by an authorized medical professional, authorities have not confirmed as to whether 2 Chainz had been prescribed the drug by a doctor.

Software company faces class action fraud charges

A California federal court recently ruled that a computer company could be charged with fraud even if the buyer bought their product before the alleged fraud occurred. Two plaintiffs filed a lawsuit against a software company, citing "fraud in the inducement," a term that means lying in order to convince a buyer to make a purchase; the complaint alleged that the company said their product could fix their computer problems. The plaintiffs reportedly want the case treated as a class action lawsuit. However, the courts have not yet ruled either way on that part of the case although it can proceed through the courts.
