If your eyes were fried by last month’s eclipse, there is now a class action personal injury lawsuit pending and one of the law firms representing the plaintiffs is the Hannon Law Firm, LLC which is conveniently located on Downing Street in Denver, Colorado.

Last month, in Switzerland, a couple was found seventy-five years after they disappeared. They were headed up the mountain to milk the cows and ended up staying there until the Tsanfleuron glacier near a ski lift above Les Diablerets resort at an altitude of 8,600 ft began receding seventy-five years after the search parties had given up.
