Ranchers join mass torts claim alleging antitrust violations

For many in Tennessee, the continuing increase in prices of beef may mean they are making alternate choices for dinner. However, for those who work in the cattle and beef industries, watching the prices of their products is a critical part of their livelihood.

Several of these farmers and ranchers have joined in mass torts actions.

Fidelity infrastructure fee may violate ERISA

Those in Tennessee and across the country who invest in a 401(k), another kind of retirement fund or a mutual fund may take comfort in knowing those investments are protected by federal law.
