LLC, PC Mgmt Inc., Basic Research LLC, Joseph Bode, Sheila Erickson, Walgreen Co., General Nutrition Corp., dba GNC, Drugstore.com, Western Holdings LLC, Dennis Gay, Daniel Mowrey, dba American Phytotherapy Research Laboratory, and Mitchell Friedlander.”

“The Associated Press Reports:
- Buried in a housing law signed [last] week by President Barack Obama are protections that will help thousands of renters stay in their homes — at least for awhile — after their landlord has been foreclosed on.
