Elizabeth Warren Prepares to Punish the U.S. Economy and Investors with Her Misnamed "Stop Wall Street Looting Act"

As the U.S. economy shows sudden weakness, American consumers understandably express increasing anxiety.  A troubling new Gallup survey reports that economic confidence has now declined to lows unsurpassed since the early days of the Covid pandemic in 2020.

Undeterred by that accumulating weakness and alarm, however, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D - Massachusetts) appears restless to strike yet another dangerous hammer blow by re-introducing her misnamed "Stop Wall Street Looting Act."

No Breakfast for Champions Leads to Lawsuit Print

A New York personal injury lawyer recently filed a lawsuit against his upscale NYC gym because it stopped serving breakfast. 

Richard Katz is suing New York City's Setai Club & Spa Wall Street, claiming their misleading actions were illegal, despicable, reckless, malicious, deliberate and immoral.  Katz, who pays a $5,000 annual membership fee, states in his complaint that the gym promised “full complimentary breakfast” knowing that they would not be able to make good on the offer and that Katz relied on that promise to his detriment.

"It was a full-blown hotel breakfast," said Katz, 53, who lives in the West Village with his wife.  "I'd go to the gym in the morning, have a spa and a nice quiet breakfast and do some work -- they mucked it all up."

Katz is seeking $750,000 in damages.
