Southwest settles aviation class-action claim for $15 million

California is a center for class action lawsuits in both the state and federal courts. It appears that the aviation industry has been caught in a price-fixing conspiracy that is currently being investigated by the Department of Justice. Since 2015, there have been numerous consumer complaints against the four biggest airlines to the effect that they conspired to keep prices up by controlling the supply of tickets for sale.

Drones: the good, bad and the ugly

Unless you are living under a rock, you have noticed the rapid increase in popularity of drones in recent years.

They can be easily purchased online -- by anyone.
