A class-action lawsuit has been filed against film mogul Harvey Weinstein. Following multiple allegations of sexual abuse and assault against the former The Weinstein Company head, Variety shares that six women have filed a class-action lawsuit in federal court in New York.

Robert Durst, the subject of the controversial HBO docu-series “The Jinx,” is once again the subject of scrutiny as new reports emerge about the corrupt collusion between the NYPD and the wealthy real estate scion. Court documents now show that the police may have been involved in covering up certain facts in the murder of Durst’s first wife.
“The Jinx” aired in 2015 and explored the vast net of conspiracies that Durst may have been involved in, ultimately leading to the capture of a confession from Durst on a hot mic.

A new lawsuit is claiming that Poland Spring Water is committing “colossal fraud” by claiming on its bottles that it contains “100 percent natural spring water” from Maine, USA Today reports.
The legal complaint, filed Tuesday, claims that Nestle is instead simply bottling common groundwater that doesn’t qualify as spring water.

A representative from Nestle Waters disputed that claim to USA Today, saying that their water meets all federal and state regulations for spring water.
Previously Nestle settled a 2003 lawsuit that alleged its water was not sourced from the Maine wildness.
