Ben Gordon, an Attorney with Levin Papantonio, explains why some California wine producers have dangerous levels of arsenic in their wines. How do you find out if the wine you are drinking is dangerous? Why winemakers do not need to disclose their ingredients? What’s the endgame for the lawsuit against unethical winemakers? Also the best way to find out about dangerous wines.

Peter Mougey of Levin Papantonio explains the importance of Elizabeth Warren’s attack on the DOJ for nobody being held criminally accountable in the banking industry. Why financial reform is still failing. The under staffing crisis at the SEC. Why Elizabeth Warren is shrewd to not run for President. The corruption of FINRA. How corporations run the legal process.
