An Eli Lilly and Company pharmaceutical manufacturing plant is pictured at 50 ImClone Drive in Branchburg, New Jersey, March 5, 2021.

Former CBS CEO Les Moonves, who left the media company in 2018 amid sexual harassment and assault allegations, has dropped an attempt to claim a $120 million severance award. CBS' board had hired Covington & Burling, along with Debevoise & Plimpton, to conduct an investigation into whether Moonves had violated the terms of his employment. "Leslie Moonves, CBS and a contractor to CBS have​ resolved their disputes," Moonves and ViacomCBS said in a joint statement. There will be no further comment regarding this settlement by Mr. Moonves or CBS." The CBS board determined in December 2018 that Moonves breached his contract and intentionally didn't cooperate with an internal investigation.

New York (CNN Business) More people are refreshing their wardrobes at department stores again as they head back into restaurants and offices. Department stores' recoveries have also been aided by government stimulus payments. Department store sales shrunk from $184 billion in sales in 2010 to $135 billion in 2019, according to Census Bureau data. Department stores were deemed non-essential retailers and closed their stores to customers as the economy shut down last spring. J.C. Penney, The dropoff tipped some department stores that were already struggling — such as Neiman Marcus Lord & Taylor and Stage Stores — into bankruptcy.

Progressives say Biden has not nominated enough judges that have professional diversity. Biden's goal to promote professional diversity among appellate judges has elevated some candidates and torpedoed others. In terms of diversity, whether its racial, ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, or professional diversity, it is just simply not reflective of the diversity of America," she said. Dana Remus, now the White House counsel, reinforced the incoming Biden administration's commitment on professional diversity in a December letter to senators. But Rheingold said he remains confident in the Biden administration's interest in professional diversity in spite of his disappointment with the first slate.

Lucas Jackson | ReutersThe next big industrial warehouse might find itself on top of a former golf course. It was the strongest performer among all industrial real estate. But real estate executives say industrial space will remain a competitive market. Vacant office buildings are becoming an attractive target to flip into warehouse space, Lissner said. "Our customers are preferring more expensive real estate," said Chris Caton, managing director of global strategy and analytics at Prologis.

The Federal Election Commission may allow members of Congress to hire private security using campaign cash. If it rules in favor of the NRCC and NRSC, the FEC has proposed limiting campaign spending on private security guards to two years.

Extra protection can be granted to congressional members based on threats.

(Reuters) - While major corporations and some law firms stopped contributions to lawmakers after the deadly Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol, few of the legal industries’ most powerful political spenders have publicly taken similar steps. All ten firms gave to at least one of the Republican lawmakers who voted against certifying Biden’s election victory in the hours following the riot, according to OpenSecrets. The financial impact of law firm political contributions is “a drop in the bucket,” said Michael Miller, an assistant professor of political science at Barnard College, in an email. Squire Patton Boggs and Holland & Knight, which have substantial lobbying arms, froze all contributions, while Cozen O’Connor halted contributions to lawmakers who voted against certifying Biden’s victory. Neither did Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough and Maynard, Cooper & Gale, whose political action committees also rank among the top ten for law firms.

Crowell & Moring, DLA Piper and more than a dozen other law firms called on Vice President Mike Pence to remove President Trump from office. Like most businesses, law firms try to keep their reputations clean. Seyfarth, a full-service law firm whose lawyers have represented Trump's business in various civil lawsuits, decided last week to drop the Trump Organization as a client. "Law firms are becoming more like public companies," said Deborah Farone, a marketing consultant who worked at top firms like Cravath and Debevoise. Stephen Gillers, a legal ethics professor at New York University, said law firms have been raked over the coals before, targeted by both the left and right.

When a top official at a U.S. derivatives watchdog last year said the agency would start policing bribery by multinational corporations, defense lawyers greeted the news with disbelief. The Vitol settlement lays the legal foundation for future foreign corruption cases by the CFTC, lawyers say. The rule prohibits the use of a “manipulative device, scheme, or artifice to defraud” in connection with the U.S. derivatives markets. The CFTC’s use of the Dodd-Frank antimanipulation rule shows how broadly that statute can be applied, lawyers said. That suggests that the CFTC’s focus on foreign bribery is likely to extend beyond just a few cases stemming from Brazil’s Petrobras scandal.

Tyson Foods terminated seven employees from an Iowa pork plant following an independent investigation into allegations that management wagered on how many workers would get infected with Covid-19, the meat processing giant announced on Wednesday. All of those fired were plant management employees at the facility in Waterloo, Iowa. According to the suit, 1,000 of 2,800 employees at the Waterloo plant were infected. Tyson said Banks and others immediately traveled to Waterloo to meet with plant team members and community leaders "to reinforce Tyson’s commitment to them and the community." 'Black Hawk County Sheriff Tony Thompson visited the Waterloo plant in the spring and said that conditions were so awful that they "shook" him "to the core," according to the suit.

Tyson Foods said on Thursday it suspended employees without pay and hired former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to conduct an investigation in response to a wrongful death lawsuit that alleges managers at an Iowa pork plant took bets on how many employees would catch Covid-19. The son of a worker at a Tyson facility in Waterloo, Iowa, who died in April of complications from the virus, filed a lawsuit that claims plant managers misled workers about Covid-19 and allowed sick employees to continue working. The worker, Isidro Fernandez, got sick because of his job, according to the lawsuit that was amended on Nov. 11. The Waterloo facility is Tyson's largest U.S. pork plant, processing 19,500 hogs a day, or about 5% of total U.S. pork production. Covid-19 infected more than 1,000 employees out of about 2,800 at the plant, and five died, the lawsuit says.
