Reports said Joey DiDomenico and his wife Laure are suing Doctor Terry Witt for failing to detect the pain experienced by Laure on her left breast was cancerous. Laure went to Dr. Witt’s clinic in July 2015 due to a complaint that she had a painful tender mass in her left breast. The doctor downplayed the symptoms and advised her to lessen her caffeine intake, the lawsuit said. Laure’s condition progressed to Stage IV breast cancer as Witt did not schedule her for a biopsy. Witt also allegedly failed to refer her patient to another specialist who could have detected and treated the condition. Laure then found out her condition worsened after consulting two other doctors. The couple is seeking damage claims amounting to $15 million as Laure’s condition is likely fatal.

Roughly 593,000 units of Subaru vehicles are being recalled due to a defect that could cause serious injuries to occupants, a September 30 report of Fox 6 stated.

Reports revealed that the 2010-2014 models of Outback and Legacy vehicles were equipped with windshield wipers that could catch fire if they emitted too much heat. Subaru explained that overheating of the wiper motors may occur if the wiper arm is blocked by snow from working properly. Subaru and federal regulators were unsure if there are incidents of injuries or crashes involving the recalled vehicles.
