  • Campolo Quoted in “AriZona Iced Tea Faces Two Lawsuits Over Labeling”

    By Ken Schachter kenneth.schachter@newsday.com The parent company of AriZona Iced Tea is facing two federal lawsuits that challenge its “no preservatives” and serving-size labeling. The suits are seeking class-action status. A lawsuit filed in October in U.S. District Court in Manhattan says the Woodbury company “deceptively” labels beverages as having “no preservatives,” when many of its products contain citric or ascorbic acid, substances that Marc Meyers, a food scientist engaged by the plaintiffs, described as preservatives. The other case, filed in September in U.S. District Court in Central Islip, says that AriZona Beverages USA LLC and affiliate Beverage Marketing USA Inc. mislead consumers about the amount of sugar and number of calories in their beverages by ...

  • LI Must Work Together On A 5G Future

    By Marc Alessi, Esq. It’s no secret that Long Island has problems with cellphone service. More than 200 cellphone “dead zones” were identified in late 2016, as well as poor-quality network speed, reliability and performance. U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has even urged carriers to improve coverage on the Island. As a longtime resident of the North Shore, I have witnessed firsthand what it means to not have reliable wireless connectivity with our mobile-enabled electronics. And as someone who served for several years in public office, I know the typical community sensitivities that arise when we discuss the investments and improvements necessary to ...

  • Reflecting on Justice Kavanaugh’s Confirmation Hearings and the History of Politics in Supreme Court Nominations

    The political drama surrounding Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation captivated the public this fall. Across the country, people were glued to their screens watching the proceedings. But why? Fierce ideological debates and even allegations of sexual assault are not new to confirmation hearings. Throughout history, confirmation hearings have involved sexual assault allegations (Justice Thomas) and ideological disagreements (Robert Bork). However, they have never been mixed into a single cocktail featuring a former political operative such as Justice Kavanaugh. Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation serves as an example that any time politics threatens to seep into the Court, it will be met with resistance. Look no ...
