Collapse survivors file lawsuits & judge rejects Facebook challenge

As the death toll continues to climb in the wake of the South Florida apartment building collapse. RT’s John Huddy and Sara Papantonio of Levin Papantonio Rafferty Law Firm bring us up to speed on the recovery from the disaster and the lawsuits facing the building’s owners. And as the Biden administration’s infrastructure deal has changed since its presentation, the battle for ‘human infrastructure’ additions in the bill are underway. Professor Richard Wolff joins us to break down the iterations of the bill and what measures he believes are necessary. Then we turn to Canada, where Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou’s lawyer has claimed that HSBC documents show that charges against her were fabricated. RT’s Alex Mihailovich files a report on the latest developments in the Huawei saga from Toronto. And a federal judge has slapped down antitrust cases against social media behemoth Facebook. Professor Elanor Fox of New York University offers her insight on the judicial decision and what repercussions it could have on antitrust in the future.
