* Legal drama at WeWork is continuing: The New York Attorney General’s Office has contacted the company about potentially illicit activities. [CNBC]

* Wendy’s is continuing to fight a lawsuit alleging injuries from a bone fragment in a burger. This is why you should always order a Spicy Chicken Sandwich at Wendy’s — the burgers are oddly square anyways. [Legal Newsline]

* It seems like bankrupt law firm LeClairRyan will not be able to escape liability from a massive sex discrimination judgment. [Virginia Lawyer’s Weekly]

* California’s Attorney General has sued Juul, the maker of electronic cigarettes, alleging that the company violated the privacy of minors when advertising to them. [Forbes]

* Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was back on the bench at the Supreme Court yesterday after missing a few days of oral arguments last week due to a stomach bug. [CNN]

* A Syracuse man acting as his own lawyer has beaten the rap on not one but two alleged crimes. Guess he may have disproved the old saying about people who represent themselves. []
