- Speaking of superheroes, Stan Lee is being sued yet once again by an aggrieved shareholder. The lawsuit brought by Stan Lee Media is still ongoing, and now the genius behind Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, the Hulk, and the Fantastic Four has to wage war against yet another individual, who has filed a class action complaint in California District Court over Lee's actions in running and then leaving the company that bears his name.
- Speaking of super villains, Anthony Pellicano is being sued yet once again by an alleged victim of his wiretapping deeds. Kirk Kirkorian's wife's lawyer and two friends are suing Pellicano, Kirkorian, and the law firm of Glaser, Fink, Jacobs, Weil & Shapiro for illegally obtaining confidential information. The law firm was home to Terry Christensen, Kirkorian's attorney.
- Speaking of the place where one might get access to superhero DVDs, Netflix is dealing with a class action lawsuit filed by a California individual who claims Netflix "slows down the delivery of DVDs" by using an undisclosed "allocation formula" that impedes Netflix's claim that customers have access to an unlimited amount of DVDs.
