A federal judge in California has dismissed an attempt by the NCAA to have a class-action suit filed against them and EA Sports thrown out. The NCAA had claimed in its motion that the players had changed their complaints in recent months, but the judge ruled that was not a reason to prevent them from seeking class certification. The ruling does not grant the plaintiff's certification, however, and the suit may eventually be denied on merit.

A woman in Young County, Texas, is in a battle with her insurance company after they have refused to pay her medical bills after she was rear-ended by another vehicle in 2011. That vehicle was a Texas Forest Service vehicle, and the state's Homeland Security Act says "the agency is immune from the damage caused in the accident." The woman has filed suits against the agency and her own insurance company, but both have refused to pay. The police report shows the Forest Service employee fell asleep at the wheel and failed to maintain proper speed.
