Survivors of a mass shooting in July that killed six people and injured dozens in a Chicago suburb sued gunmaker Smith & Wesson Brands Inc on Wednesday, accusing it of deliberately marketing its weapons to violence-prone young men through social media and advertisements reminiscent of video games. In a series of lawsuits filed in Lake County, Illinois Circuit Court, the survivors, including relatives of those killed, said the Springfield, Massachusetts-based company "knowingly sought to place its weapons in the hands of disturbed young men by targeting and exploiting the risk-seeking - and often troubling - desires of these consumers." Smith & Wesson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

JetBlue Chief Executive Robin Hayes staunchly defended his company's alliance with larger rival American Airlines on Wednesday, denying the U.S. government's allegations that the agreement would defang the low-cost carrier. The U.S. Justice Department, six states and the District of Columbia are urging a federal judge in Boston to force the two carriers to scrap their Northeast Alliance (NEA), calling it a "de facto merger" of their Boston and New York operations in which they coordinate flights and pool revenue to the detriment of travelers, who face $700 million in extra annual costs. Hayes said that JetBlue did not consult with American on pricing in the northeast or anywhere else, and did not pull its punches in competing with American.

TOKYO/SEOUL (Reuters) -U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris told South Korea's prime minister on Tuesday that Washington will work to address Seoul's concerns over recently enacted electric vehicle (EV) subsidies that could disadvantage Asian automakers. The $430 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" bill enacted in August includes a host of U.S. President Joe Biden's priorities, including investments to roll back climate change and make Washington a world leader in the EV market. The law also ends subsidies for other EV models and requires that a percentage of critical minerals used in those cars' batteries come from the United States or an American free-trade partner.

Documents obtained from two data scientists employed by Musk showed they estimated in early July that the number of fake accounts on the platform at 5.3% and 11%, the Twitter lawyer told a Delaware judge. "None of these analyses so far as we can tell remotely supported what Mr. Musk told Twitter and told the world in the termination letter," said the lawyer, Bradley Wilson.
