A federal judge has ruled that investors in Theranos Inc. who say the company coerced them into investing in the company for a non-existing blood testing technology can't pursue their class action claims, Reuters reports.

Why it matters: It's not looking good for investors who could gain more from filing lawsuits against Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes and former COO Ramesh "Sunny" Balwani, adds Reuters. More than 200 people joined in filing the proposed class action, all of whom "invested in funds between July 29, 2013, and Oct. 5, 2016, for the purpose of buying shares in Theranos, once a star of Silicon Valley."

George Zimmerman filed a lawsuit in Polk County, Fla., seeking $265 million in damages from Democratic presidential candidates Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren, accusing them of defaming him to "garner votes in the black community."

Context: Neither the Massachusetts senator nor the former Southbend mayor tweeted his name in the Feb. 5 posts on what would've been the 25th birthday of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teen Zimmerman fatally shot in 2012. But Zimmerman alleges they "acted with actual malice" to defame him.
