Two data brokers end the sale of location data of people who visit abortion clinics

Two data brokers committed to ending the sale of location data of people who visit abortion clinics.

Sen. Ben Ray Luján, a Democrat, announced the commitment on Thursday. The announcement was in response to two letters from 13 senators, including Luján, to end the practice…

The ability for data tracking on a pregnant person’s phone has become an issue of increasing concern as states hostile to abortion ban it or plan to in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling last month, which overturned Roe v. Wade. Texas legislators have said they will push legislation to prohibit Texas pregnant patients from crossing state lines to access abortion care.

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham issued an executive order earlier this month to protect providers and patients in the state and said New Mexico would not participate in another state’s attempts to prosecute a provider or patient who comes to New Mexico for abortion care. But an executive order does not have the same force as law and can be terminated by the next governor.

Yup, just more reason why I choose to live in New Mexico instead of any state run like Texas.

Subway sued by consumer who can’t find tuna in her tuna sandwich

A federal judge says a woman’s lawsuit against Subway can move forward, refusing the restaurant chain’s request to dismiss the suit that alleges its tuna sandwiches “partially or wholly” lack tuna…

(Nilima) Amin’s lawsuit cites a marine biologist who analyzed 20 samples of tuna offerings from 20 different Subway restaurants and found “no detectable tuna DNA sequences whatsoever” in 19 samples. But, Amin says, the samples did contain other types of animal DNA, such as from chicken and pork…

…The case centers on what consumers expect when they order a tuna sandwich: The word “tuna” appears 244 times in the plaintiff’s 28-page amended complaint…

Amin is seeking a jury trial and class-action status for her lawsuit, which accuses Subway of fraud, false advertising, and unfair competition. The suit seeks restitution, punitive damages and “disgorgement of all ill-gotten gains” from Subway, one of the top-grossing restaurant chains in the U.S.

I think “disgorgement” adds a nice touch to the lawsuit, eh?
