BANK OF AMERICA: Disability Rights Group Sues Over Policy Limitation
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Californians for Disability Rights, a non-profit disability
organization, filed Tuesday a statewide lawsuit against Bank of America
and Provident Insurance for fraudulent unfair business practices and
discrimination against people with disabilities.

The suit grows out of a recent mailing to 3.8 million checking account
customers by Bank of America.

In the mass mailing, Bank of America offered term life insurance
through Provident Insurance Company to those willing to sign a fine
print "Good Health Statement."

However, according to Disability Rights Advocates and Mark A. Chavez,
attorneys for the disabled consumers, the sweeping breadth and
arbitrary nature of this exclusionary provision prevents nearly all
people with disabilities from participating in the insurance program.

To be eligible for coverage, customers must verify to Bank of America
and Provident that they have not been diagnosed or treated by a
physician within the past five years for any impairment or disease of
the following:

     (1) heart or circulatory system,

     (2) lungs or respiratory system,

     (3) stomach or digestive system,

     (4) liver or kidneys,

     (5) brain or nervous system, or for

     (6) cancer or any malignant disease,

     (7) Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome or any AIDS-related
         disease,

     (8) HIV virus or

     (9) diabetes.

California's Insurance Code prohibits insurance companies from refusing
to insure a person because of a physical or mental impairment unless
the decision is based on actuarial principles or other hard data.

Californians for Disability Rights contends that this limitation
violates the Business and Professions Code, the Insurance Code and
California's civil rights laws because it denies countless persons with
disabilities the opportunity to enroll in this life insurance with no
evidence that the exclusionary conditions have a negative effect on
life expectancy.

The lawsuit also alleges that the fine print "Good Health Statement"
misleads Bank of America's customers and the general public.

The inability to obtain the financial security provided by life
insurance is a major problem for people with disabilities.

As the California Attorney General wrote last year in a "friend of the
court" brief in support of a federal suit seeking equal access to
insurance for disabled men and women, "People with disabilities face
widespread discrimination throughout the insurance industry."

In the same suit, the United States District Court for the Northern
District of California remarked, "Non-discriminatory access to
insurance for disabled persons is important because it provides a non-
employment-based route to healthcare and investment."

The named Plaintiff, Californians for Disability Rights, initiated this
private attorney general action on behalf of the general public.

BELLSOUTH CORPORATION: Sued In Florida For Misrepresenting Net Service
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Hackney & Miller, LLP filed recently a class action suit against
BellSouth Corp. and BellSouth Telecommunications Inc. for
misrepresenting its fast-access DSL Internet service to customers from
June 30, 1999 to December 31, 2000, a Sun-Sentinel report said.

According to the suit, many customers experienced significant Internet
disruptions and long delays in obtaining technical service, contrary to
the Company's claim.

Only one BellSouth customer was named in the suit, but the law firm
said many other BellSouth DSL clients have already signified their
interest in joining the suit.

The suit is pending in Palm Beach County Circuit Court in Florida, the
Sun-Sentinel said.

BellSouth had 303,000 DSL customers in its nine-state service area at
the end of the first quarter, and aims to sign up 600,000 by the end of
this year.

ETHICON INC.: Contaminated Suture Suit Trial Begins In Texas
------------------------------------------------------------
The trial of a class action suit filed by patients who developed
infections after undergoing surgery using contaminated sutures started
this week, the website of CBS 11 TV reported recently.

According to the report, plaintiffs painted Ethicon Inc. last Monday as
a suture giant that distributes potentially contaminated sutures all
over the United States.

Plaintiffs' lawyers brought to court seven individuals who they say
suffered raging infections following surgeries.

Members of the class in the suit are estimated to number thousands of
patients who had surgery from January 1, 1994 to December 31, 1999 and
had doctors who used sutures made by the Company, a division of Johnson
& Johnson.

Sterilization experts have so far testified that there has been a trail
of problems traceable to the sutures manufactured at the San Angelo,
Texas plant of the Company.

In September 1994, the Company recalled 3.5 million of such sutures
from the Texas plant.

"It is the little guy who suffers if the case is not certified. It's
Ethicon, the big company, Johnson and Johnson that wins if it is not
certified," a Plaintiffs' lawyer argued.


EXTREME NETWORKS: Stull Stull Begins Securities Suit In S.D. New York
---------------------------------------------------------------------

on behalf of purchasers of Extreme Networks Inc. (NASDAQ:EXTR) common
stock between April 8, 1999 and July 6, 2001, inclusive.

The complaint alleges that defendants violated the federal securities
laws by issuing and selling Extreme Networks common stock pursuant to
the April 8, 1999 IPO without disclosing to investors that some of the
underwriters in the offering, including the lead underwriters, had
solicited and received excessive and undisclosed commissions from
certain investors.

FILM REVIEW LITIGATION: CA Lawyer Sues Over Misleading Critiques
----------------------------------------------------------------
MGM, Warner Brothers and all other major Hollywood film companies are
facing a class action suit filed in California over misleading film
reviews, The Guardian reported recently.

Lawyer Tony Sonnet and his friends filed the case seeking damages over
fraudulent inducement, unfair and deceptive business practices and
false and misleading advertising.

The group alleges that "the defendants have engaged and continue to
engage in the practice of providing motion picture merchandise free of
charge to reviewers participating in film screenings and 'press
junkets' to interview, including but not limited to: T-shirts, hats,
coffee mugs, books, photographs and mouse pads."

Sonnet claims that he has already received several e-mails from
individuals who have been alerted by the action.

He said one such e-mail complained about the nice reviews for "Dude,
Where's My Car?" with a plea of "dude, where's my money back?"

The Guardian said the suit is unlikely to come to trial for at least
another year.

The suit is pending in the Los Angeles Superior Court.


GENERAL SEMICONDUCTOR: Securities Suit In Illinois Moved To E.D. PA
-------------------------------------------------------------------
General Semiconductor, Inc. informed the Securities and Exchange
Commission in a recent report that the securities class action
previously pending in Illinois has been transferred to Pennsylvania.

The Company said trial of the case entitled In Re General Instrument
Corporation Securities Litigation would now be held in the U.S.
District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

The suit was filed in 1995 in separate actions that have since been
consolidated representing a class of a class of purchasers of GI Common
Stock during the period March 21, 1995 through October 18, 1995.

It alleges that GI and certain of its officers and directors, as well
as Forstmann Little & Co. and certain related entities, violated
federal securities laws, namely, Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the
Exchange Act, by allegedly making false and misleading statements and
failing to disclose material facts about GI's financial condition.

General Semiconductor is a leader in the design, manufacture and
distribution of semiconductors serving the power management market.

The Company provides customers with a broad array of products including
rectifiers, transient voltage suppressors, small-signal transistors,
diodes, MOSFETs and Analog ICs.


HEALTHCARE LITIGATION: Miami Suit Could Involve 50 Million People
-----------------------------------------------------------------
More than 50 million individuals could be involved in a suit filed
against health management companies should it be granted class status
by a Miami judge, the Reuters News Agency reported recently.

In a hearing last Tuesday attended by at least 100 lawyers, U.S. Judge
Federico Moreno explored the possibility of granting class status to
the suits against Aetna Inc., CIGNA Corp, Prudential Insurance,
UnitedHealth Group Inc and Humana Inc.

But lawyers for the management care companies argued that the
plaintiffs have no common claims to be lumped into a single action.

"You would have dozens and hundreds of groups," said an attorney for
UnitedHealth Group, who cited that his client alone had 29 separate
plans, many with their own sets of rules and regulations, in the United
States.

"But you could do it?" Moreno asked, referring to the consolidation of
the suit into groups or classes or plaintiffs.

The plaintiffs claim that the health management companies committed
fraud by failing to tell customers they offered secret bonuses to
doctors to deny certain types of health care to patients in favor of
less costly diagnostic tests or treatments.

The judge has not indicated when he will make the critical class action
ruling.


IBASIS INC.: Milberg Weiss Files Suit v. IPO Underwriter In S.D. NY
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

The action is pending in the United States District Court for the
Southern District of New York against defendant BancBoston Robertson
Stephens, Inc.

ICG COMMUNICATIONS: Colorado Suits Stayed Pending Bankruptcy Filing
-------------------------------------------------------------------
ICG Communications, Inc. disclosed recently in a regulatory filing that
the securities class actions pending in Colorado have been stayed
momentarily pending resolution of the Company's filing for bankruptcy.

The Company, however, said it has already retained a legal counsel to
prepare a vigorous defense on the lawsuits when the stay is lifted.

During the third and fourth quarters of 2000, the Company was served
with fourteen lawsuits filed by various shareholders in the federal
district court for the District of Colorado.

All of the suits name as defendants the Company, the Company's former
Chief Executive Officer, J. Shelby Bryan, and the Company's former
President, John Kane.

Additionally, one of the complaints names the Company's former
President, William S. Beans, Jr., as a defendant.

All of the complaints seek unspecified damages for alleged violations
of Rules 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

They also seek class action certification for similarly situated
shareholders.

It is anticipated that the lawsuits will be consolidated and that the
Court will choose a lead plaintiffs' counsel, the Company said in its
SEC report.

ICG provides voice, data and Internet communication services.


ICG COMMUNICATIONS: Announces Settlement Of Subsidiary's Suit In Texas
----------------------------------------------------------------------
ICG Communications announced recently that it has reached a settlement
with its shareholders who filed in 1997 a purported class action in
Texas.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed save for the Company's claim
that it did not have a material impact on its consolidated financial
statement.

The suit was filed in the District Court of Harris County, Texas by
shareholders of Zycom Corporation, a subsidiary of the Company whose
service has now been discontinued.

The plaintiffs alleged that the Company and certain of its subsidiaries
breached certain fiduciary duties owed to the plaintiffs.


INDIANA UNIVERSITY: Suit Over Firing Knight Moves Closer To Trial
-----------------------------------------------------------------
A class action lawsuit filed against Indiana University over the firing
of basketball coach Bob Knight last September may well proceed to
trial, the Spokesman-Review reported recently.

In a latest step towards a possible trial, special Judge Cecile Blau
denied a motion for summary judgment by the university on the issue
that its board of directors violated state open meetings law before
firing Knight.

This move bars any form of settlement on the matter and necessitates a
trial. A trial date has yet to be set.

A group of 46 university alumni and fans brought the suit alleging that
the meetings between university president Myles Brand and separate
groups of four trustees before Knight was fired constituted public
meetings, as defined by state law.

The university, therefore, should have given 48-hour notice to
interested parties, the group claims.

Plaintiffs' lawyer said the firing of the hall of famer coach by Brand
without proper trustee approval is a cause for concern for faculty
members.

"If you have a job at IU and you're a tenured professor, all you've got
to do is get a letter from Myles Brand and you're fired," the lawyer
said

"I don't think the professors at IU are aware of this," he said.


INTERNAP NETWORK: Stull Stull Begins Securities Suit In S.D. New York
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Stull, Stull & Brody filed Tuesday a class action lawsuit in the United
States District Court for the Southern District of New York, on behalf
of purchasers of InterNAP (NASDAQ:INAP) common stock between September
29, 1999 and July 3, 2001, inclusive.

The complaint alleges that defendants violated the federal securities
laws by issuing and selling InterNAP common stock pursuant to the
September 29, 1999 IPO without disclosing to investors that some of the
underwriters in the offering, including the lead underwriters, had
solicited and received excessive and undisclosed commissions from
certain investors.

JAPAN: Washington D.C. Court To Rule On "Comfort Women" Suit Aug. 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------
All eyes will be on the U.S. District Court in Washington D.C. on
August 1 as it decides whether to hear or dismiss a class action filed
by former "comfort women" against the government of Japan.

At this very moment, nobody knows what the decision will be as the U.S.
government recommended last April the dismissal of the suit citing that
Japan is entitled to sovereign immunity; hence the United States has no
jurisdiction over the case.

But the 15 women, six South Koreans, four Chinese, four Filipinos and
one Taiwanese, filed the suit based on a U.S. federal law that allows
foreigners the right to sue other foreign citizens and entities for
violations of international law.

They are demanding compensation and an apology from Japan.

It is believed that as many as 200,000 Korean, Filipino and Chinese
women were forced to work in Japanese military brothels before and
during World War II.


MERRILL LYNCH: Motion To Dismiss Putative Suit In M.D. FL Undecided
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Merrill Lynch Fundamental Growth Fund, Inc. informed the Securities and
Exchange Commission that a motion to dismiss a putative suit in Florida
is still undecided.

The suit has been pending in the U.S. District Court for the Middle
District of Florida since November 2000.

Filed on behalf of investors, the suit names the Company, Merrill Lynch
Investment Managers, L.P. and certain present and former individual
Board Members of both companies.

The plaintiffs, who are trustees of and participants in certain profit
sharing plans, purport to assert claims against the defendants on their
own behalf and on behalf of the plans, the plans' participants and all
similarly situated shareholders of Growth Fund who invested in Florida.

The alleged class consists of "all persons and entities who purchased
or sold the Growth Fund in Florida through Merrill Lynch, or any
related entity . . . at any time from November 1, 1997, up through and
including April 30, 1999," the Company's SEC report said.

The lawsuit involves two claims based on the Florida Securities and
Investor Protection Act and the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade
Practices Act, respectively.

The substance of both claims is that Growth Fund and the other
defendants misrepresented and omitted material facts regarding the
"true nature of the Fund and its holdings."

The Company said it would mount a vigorous defense on the matter.


MERRILL LYNCH: Oral Arguments On Second Suit Scheduled For August 13
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Oral arguments have been scheduled for August 13 on a second suit filed
against Merrill Lynch Fundamental Growth Fund, Inc. in Florida.

The suit, which is identical to the above suit and pending in the same
court for the Middle District of Florida, has been removed under the
Securities Litigation Uniform Standards Act to federal court.

Plaintiffs have made a motion to remand this action to state court,
which defendants have opposed.

It is this matter that will be argued in court during the scheduled
hearing.

The Company and the other defendants also believe that this second
lawsuit is without merit and have moved to have the complaint
dismissed.


PALM INC.: Lovell and Sirota Law Firms File Suit In S.D. New York
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The law firms of Lovell & Stewart, LLP and Sirota & Sirota, LLP filed
Tuesday a class action lawsuit on behalf of all persons and entities
who purchased, converted, exchanged or otherwise acquired the common
stock of Palm, Inc. (NasdaqNM:PALM) between March 1, 2000 and July 23,
2001, inclusive.

The lawsuit asserts claims under Section 11, 12 and 15 of the
Securities Act of 1933 and Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated by the SEC thereunder
and seeks to recover damages.

The action, Pfeiffer v. Palm, Inc., et al., is pending in the U.S.
District Court for the Southern District of New York and has been
assigned to the Hon. Jed S. Rakoff, U.S. District Judge.

The complaint alleges that Palm, Inc., Carl J. Yankowski, its Chief
Executive Officer, Alan J. Kessler, its former President, and Judy
Brumer, its CFO at the time of its IPO, violated the federal securities
laws by issuing and selling Palm common stock pursuant to the initial
public offering without disclosing to investors that four of the lead
underwriters and one of the other underwriters of the IPO had solicited
and received excessive and undisclosed commissions from certain
investors.

damages and other relief from the Company.

According to the report, the law firm filed the suit on behalf of the
purchasers of the Company's publicly traded securities during the
period between April 25, 2000 and April 2, 2001.

The Company produces sand, crushed stone, and gravel from more than 25
aggregate production sites that serve markets located in nine
southeastern, mountain, and western states.

It also provides related materials like asphalt, ready-mix concrete and
services for public highway and infrastructure construction, as well as
commercial and residential construction.

The Company boasts of an estimated aggregate reserve of about 1.3
billion tons, representing a 20-year supply.
