INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/-- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that both the Biomet metal-on-metal hip and NuvaRing birth control product have agreed to settlements in separate litigations in Indiana, New Jersey and Missouri courts. Both settlements were a surprise to the Mass Tort Industry, as Merck & Co.'s NuvaRing and Biomet Inc. had both been strongly opposing the litigations. The Biomet settlement amount is projected at $56MM, or an average settlement value per case of $200K. The NuvaRing litigation was for a projected $100MM, with an average settlement amount to be somewhere in the $50K range based on extent of injuries.
The settlement news comes on the heels of The DePuy ASR Hip implant litigation settlement news in late 2013 for close to $4Bil., with an average settlement value of $250K per hip revision case. Legal-Bay believes that 2014 will also see a major settlement in the Transvaginal mesh litigation as well as possibly another hip implant case, the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II recall hips. The lawsuit funding firm which tracks each major litigation for its clients that need a lawsuit cash advance before receiving their settlement funds, believes 2014 could see the largest dollars paid out to plaintiffs in mass tort litigations in U.S. history.

Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay commented on the settlement news, "It seems to some in the industry that Biomet and Nuvaring both got off rather light with the potential exposure they were facing. However, as both litigations seemed to be an uphill battle for the plaintiffs, we feel the plaintiff's lawyers secured a fair and reasonable amount of money on behalf of their clients in both cases. Our commitment to assisting Nuvaring and Biomet clients even during this uncertainty of a settlement shows our commitment to plaintiffs in need of financial assistance."

The lawsuit cash advance is not to be considered a lawsuit loan or lawsuit loans, as referred to by plaintiffs. Plaintiffs in need of up to $30K in pre-settlement cash advance can apply to Legal-Bay.com directly at: http://lawsuitssettlementfunding.com ; or by calling the company's toll free hotline at: 877.571.0405.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
