ACCREDITED HOME: Committee Withdraws Objection to $22 Mil. Deal
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors appointed in
Accredited Home Lenders Holding Co.'s cases has withdrawn its
objection to the company's $22 million settlement in a securities
class action, according to Law360.  The Committee did not give a
reason for the withdrawal of their objection to the settlement,
the report says.

In March 2007, AHLHC was served with a class action entitled
Atlas v. Accredited Home Lenders Holding Co., et al., Case No.
07-cv-_____ (S.D. Calif.), alleging violations of federal
securities laws by AHLHC and certain members of senior
management.

Accredited Home Lenders Holding Co. -- http://www.accredhome.com/
-- is a mortgage banker servicing U.S. markets for conforming and
non-prime residential mortgage loans operating throughout the
U.S. and in Canada.  Founded in 1990, the company is
headquartered in San Diego.  The Company was acquired by Lone
Star Funds for $300 million in October 2007.  Lone Star also owns
Bruno's Supermarkets LLC and Bi-Lo LLC, two grocery retailers in
Chapter 11.

Accredited Home and its affiliates filed for Chapter 11 on May 1,
2009 (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 09-11516).  Gregory G. Hesse,
Esq., Lynnette R. Warman, Esq., and Jesse T. Moore, Esq., at
Hunton & William LLP, represent the Debtors as counsel.  Laura
Davis Jones, Esq., James E. O'Neill, Esq., and Timothy P. Cairns,
Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, serve as Delaware
counsel.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants is the Debtors' claims
agent.  Andrew I Silfen, Esq., Schuyler G. Carroll, Esq., Robert
M. Hirsch, Esq., at Arent Fox LLP in New York, and Jeffrey N.
Rothleder, Esq., at Arent Fox LLP in Washington, DC, represent
the official committee of unsecured creditors as co-counsel.  
Neil R. Lapinski, Esq., and Shelley A. Kinsella, Esq., at Elliott
Greenleaf, represent the Committee as Delaware and conflicts
counsel.

At the time of its bankruptcy filing, Accredited Home's estimated
its assets at $10 million to $50 million and its debts from
$100 million to $500 million.


ACXIOM CORP: Fla. DPPA Settlement Notice Extended to DMV Offices
----------------------------------------------------------------
In addition to providing notice by publication, the Honorable
Jose E. Martinez directed the parties in Fresco, et al. v. R.L.
Polk & Co. and Acxiom Corp., Case No. 07-60695 (S.D. Fla.), to
deliver notice of their proposed settlement to each state's
department of motor vehicles and request that the notice be
posted in each public office.  Project Manager Leslie Wissner at
Garden City Group, Inc., the Notice Administrator in this class
action proceeding, took charge of that, and distributed scores of
notices to each state's DMV last month.  

A fairness hearing is scheduled for Dec. 7, 2009, at 10:00 a.m.,
to consider the proposed settlement.  

The suit alleges that R.L. Polk & Co. and Acxiom Corp. knowingly
obtained, used, or disclosed personal information from motor
vehicle records in violation of a federal law, the Driver's
Privacy Protection Act.

The Garden City Group, Inc., has established a Web site at

ANADARKO PETROLEUM: Sept. 8 Is "Tronix" Lead Plaintiff Deadline
-------------------------------------------------------
Barroway Topaz Kessler Meltzer & Check, LLP reminds all
purchasers of Tronox, Inc. (Pink Sheets: TRXAQ, TRXBQ) securities
between November 28, 2005, and January 12, 2009, inclusive, that
September 8, 2009, is the lead plaintiff deadline in the class
action currently pending in the United States District Court for
the Southern District of New York.

If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions
concerning this notice or your rights or interests with respect
to these matters, please contact Darren J. Check, Esq., or David
M. Promisloff, Esq., at Barroway Topaz Kessler Meltzer & Check,
LLP, toll free at 1-888-299-7706 or 1-610-667-7706, or
via e-mail at info@btkmc.com.  For more information about
Barroway Topaz Kessler Meltzer & Check, please visit
http://www.btkmc.com/

The case is styled Barnes v. Kerr-McGee Corporation, et al., Case
No. 09-cv-7116 (S.D.N.Y.).  A copy of the Complaint filed in this
action is available from the Court, or can be viewed at
http://www.btkmc.com/

The Complaint charges Kerr-McGee Corporation, Anadarko Petroleum
Corporation and certain of Kerr-McGee and Tronox's officers and
directors with violations of the federal securities laws.  Tronox
is not named in this action as a defendant because it filed for
bankruptcy protection in January 2009.  Tronox is a producer and
marketer of titanium dioxide pigment.  

More specifically, the Complaint alleges that the Company failed
to disclose and misrepresented the following material adverse
facts which were known to defendants or recklessly disregarded by
them: (1) that the Company's reserves for environmental
liabilities failed to include reserves for other identified, but
undisclosed sites; (2) that the Company faced extraordinarily
high exposure regarding its environmental liabilities, which it
failed to fully disclose to its shareholders; (3) that the
Company's reserves for environmental liabilities were wholly
inadequate; (4) that the Company would face extremely high tort
liabilities, particularly for wood treatment claims; (5) that the
Company's financial statements and, specifically the methodology
used to calculate the Company's environmental liabilities
reserve, were not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted
Accounting Principles; (6) that the Company lacked adequate
internal and financial controls; (7) that, as a result of the
foregoing, the Company's financial statements were materially
false and misleading at all relevant times; and (8) that, as a
result of the foregoing, defendants' statements about the
Company's financial well-being and future business prospects were
lacking in any reasonable basis when made.  As a result of
defendants' wrongful acts and omissions, and the precipitous
decline in the market value of the Company's securities,
Plaintiff and other Class Members have suffered significant
losses and damages.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of class members and
is represented by the law firm of Barroway Topaz Kessler Meltzer
& Check which prosecutes class actions in both state and federal
courts throughout the country.  Barroway Topaz Kessler Meltzer &
Check is a driving force behind corporate governance reform, and
has recovered billions of dollars on behalf of institutional and
individual investors from the United States and around
the world.

If you are a member of the class described above, you may, not
later than September 8, 2009, move the Court to serve as lead
plaintiff of the class, if you so choose.  A lead plaintiff is a
representative party that acts on behalf of other class members
in directing the litigation.  In order to be appointed lead
plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member's claim
is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the
class member will adequately represent the class.  Your ability
to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the
decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff.  Any member
of the purported class may move the court to serve as lead
plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do
nothing and remain an absent class member.

BRITISH COLUMBIA: Charity Groups Consider Suing Over Budget Cuts
----------------------------------------------------------------
Dirk Meissner and Terri Theodore at The Canadian Press report
that the Canadian province of British Columbia has slashed grants
to charity groups as they struggle with a large budget deficit,
but the groups say the government won't get out of the red at
their expense and they've threatened a lawsuit over axed money
that had previously been promised.  

A spokeswoman for the B.C. Association of Charitable Gaming tells
Mr. Meissner and Ms. Theodore that the group has contacted
lawyers and is considering launching a class-action lawsuit.
Cheryl Ziola says the group has a 1999 signed agreement with the
provincial government that guarantees more annual funding.
"It's not a good day for charities," said Mr. Ziola. "It's pretty
bleak."  She said the 5,000 to 6,000 charitable groups in British
Columbia that receive gaming funds from the province have been
hit with an 11-per-cent cut.  The province has cut the overall
budget to $139 million from $156 million.  "Some organizations
have phoned us and said they are faced with closing their doors
or they are pursuing lines of credit," she said. "We've contacted
lawyers."

BROADCOM CORP: $118 Mil. Settlement Will Stay Class Action Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Law.com reports that The National Law Journal reports that
Broadcom Corp. has agreed to pay $118 million to settle
allegations of stock options backdating in In Re Broadcom Corp.
Derivative Litig., Case No. 06-cv-03252 (C.D. Calif.) (Real, J.).  
The proposed deal involves several current and former officers
and directors of Broadcom, including former general counsel David
Dull.  The defendants have denied wrongdoing under the proposed
settlement, which, if approved, would stay shareholder claims in
a related class action against Broadcom.  

Amanda Bronstad's full story in The National Law Journal is at:

     http://www.law.com/jsp/article.jsp?id=1202433488143

Richard Heimann, Esq., at Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein in
San Francisco, tells Ms. Bronstad the Broadcom settlement is the
the second-largest such deal in a derivative action to date.  
The largest, reached in 2007 between several pension funds and
former executives of UnitedHealth Group Inc., was estimated at
$900 million.

The Wall Street Journal's Law Blog Newsletter gives further
insight into the economics underlying the settlement, explaining
that Broadcom will receive $118 million from the issuers of D&O
insurance policies and then shell out some $130 million to
defense lawyers hired to represent the executives the company,
technically speaking, was suing, given that it was a derivative
action, plus $11.5 million to the plaintiffs' lawyers.



CINTAS CORP: Net Cost of Driver Overtime Settlement is $12 Mil.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bruce Beggs at American Laundry News reports that Cintas Corp.
will take a one-time $12 million charge, net of insurance
proceeds and taxes, in connection with the $22.75 million
settlement disclosed last month with hundreds of delivery drivers
in Veliz, et al. v. Cintas Corp. et al., Case No. 03-cv-01180
(N.D. Calif.).  Mr. Beggs says that Cintas also expects the court
approval process will take several months.

The Cintas drivers who pick up soiled uniforms, oily rags
and other items and drop off a fresh supply were classified by
the company as salaried workers instead of hourly workers, who
would be entitled to overtime pay.  The Fair Labor Standards Act
(FLSA) requires workers to be compensated for all hours worked,
unless they are specifically exempted.  Executives and
professionals are exempted and can be required to work more than
40 hours a week without being paid overtime.  The drivers argued
that their jobs driving trucks, delivering uniforms and
servicing existing contracts do not make them exempt from being
paid for hours worked over 40 hours.

EXTENDICARE HEALTH: Wisconsin Court Tosses Class Action Lawsuit
---------------------------------------------------------------
A judge in Milwaukee County Circuit Court ruled that a class
action lawsuit brought against Extendicare Health Services, Inc.,
Extendicare Homes, Inc., and other related entities, wholly owned
U.S. based subsidiaries of Extendicare Real Estate Investment
Trust (TSX: EXE.UN), was improper and ordered the case dismissed
in its entirety.

The lawsuit was filed on November 14, 2008, in Milwaukee County
Circuit Court as a copycat lawsuit to two other lawsuits that
were similarly dismissed by federal courts in Washington and
Minnesota.  Like those, the suit asserted a claim under a state
consumer protection statute and was premised upon an allegation
that Extendicare had misrepresented the quality of its services
to the residents of its Wisconsin skilled nursing facilities. The
plaintiff brought the action on behalf of all current and former
residents for the period 2005 through 2008.

The Honorable Dennis Moroney rejected the class action claim, and
like the federal court in Minnesota, held that that the
plaintiffs' allegations were too general and unspecific to serve
as the basis for a claim. Judge Moroney further prohibited the
plaintiffs' attorneys from attempting to re-file the lawsuit with
amended allegations because, given the weakness of the claim, it
would be futile.

Like the other suits filed against it asserting similar theories,
Extendicare viewed this suit as an attempt by creative
plaintiffs' lawyers to use costly, but ultimately baseless,
litigation strategies as a means of forcing settlement and
driving up attorneys' fees.  Judge Moroney's ruling appears to
vindicate Extendicare's position, the Company says.

Extendicare is a leading North American provider of long-term and
short-term senior care services through its network of owned and
operated health care centers.  Extendicare employs 37,900
workers, and its 264 senior care centers in North America have
capacity for approximately 29,500 residents.


INTERNATIONAL GAME: Directors Sued for Securities Fraud in Nev.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Courthouse News Service reports that directors of International
Game Technology inflated its share price through false and
misleading statements, shareholders say in Las Vegas Federal
Court.

As reported in the Class Action Reporter in early-August, a
complaint filed in International Brotherhood of Electrical
Workers Local 697 Pension Fund v. International Game Technology,
et al., Case No. 09-cv-00419 (D. Nev., filed July 30, 2009),
charges IGT and certain of its officers and directors with
violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  The Pension
Fund is represented by Darren J. Robbins, Esq., at Coughlin Stoia
Geller Rudman & Robbins LLP.

IGT is a global gaming company that specializes in the design,
manufacture, and marketing of electronic gaming equipment and
network systems, as well as licensing and services, in North
America and internationally.

MARVEL ENTERTAINMENT: Shareholders Want More Money from Disney
--------------------------------------------------------------
It didn't take Marvel Entertainment shareholders long to
challenge Disney's proposed $4 billion buyout of the comic book
giant, Courthouse News Service reports.  On Monday, the day
Marvel and Disney announced the deal, Marvel shareholders filed a
state class action calling the roughly $50 per share stock-and-
cash offer grossly inadequate.  

Marvel shareholders are offered $30 per share plus 0.745 shares
of Disney for each Marvel share.  They want more.   

The deal would give Disney rights to hundreds of Marvel
characters, including Spiderman, the X-Men, the Incredible Hulk
and the inexplicably neglected Silver Surfer.

Marvel shareholders are represented in New York County Court by
Anthony Vozzolo, Esq., at  Faruqi & Faruqi.


MERRILL LYNCH: Judge Approves Settlement of BofA Buyout Lawsuit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Vice Chancellor John W. Noble of the Delaware Chancery Court gave
final approval to a zero-dollar, additional disclosure settlement      
in County of York Employees Retirement Plan v. Merrill Lynch &
Co., No. CA4066.  The settlement also resolves In re Merrill
Lynch & Co. Inc. Securities, Derivative and ERISA Litigation,
Case No. 07-9696 (S.D.N.Y.).

Bloomberg News relates that Bank of America's Merrill Lynch & Co.
unit won final court approval of a settlement resolving a class
action, or group, lawsuit that had sought to block its
acquisition by the bank.

The County of York Employees Retirement Plan sued the company
last year claiming the deal with Bank of America was too low and
denied shareholders maximum value. Both sides reached a
settlement in November and the deal closed in January.

Bank of America acquired New York-based Merrill on Jan. 1 for
about $29 billion. Merrill agreed to the purchase on Sept. 15
after Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. filed for bankruptcy, putting
the company in danger.

As part of the settlement, Merrill Lynch released additional
information about the deal -- including Merrill's due-diligence
investigation and discussions between the two firms on
compensation for Merrill's senior executives.

Vice Chancellor Noble also approved $950,000 in fees and expenses
for shareholders' attorneys.


MIDLAND CREDIT: Charged With Illegal Debt Collection Practices

NEW YORK: 8% Parking Tax for Non-Residents Comes Under Fire
------------------------------------------------------------
Barbara Leonard at Courthouse News Service reports that a federal
class action claims that Manhattan discriminates against out-of-
towners by charging them an 8 percent tax to park in the
borough's garages while Manhattan residents can apply for an
exemption. By charging the tax without limitation the city could
raise up to $22 million, according to the complaint.

The five named plaintiffs are residents of New Jersey, Long
Island and Queens who commute to Manhattan and park their cars in
garages at monthly rates.  They pay 18.375 percent in state, city
and borough taxes, while Manhattan residents with qualifying
vehicles pay only 10.375 percent.

Thousands of out-of-towners have paid the surcharge since Aug.
26, 2006, the class claims.  

The class seeks declaratory relief and an injunction to stop the
discriminatory tax policies, which they say violate the commerce,
privileges and immunities, and equal protection clauses of the
Constitution.

Named as defendants are the city and state of New York, former
Govs. Eliot Spitzer and George Pataki, Gov. David Paterson, Mayor
Michael Bloomberg, and the current and former commissioners of
the state finance department and the taxation and finance
department.

Lead counsel is Brian Bromberg, Esq.


PAYPAL INC: Merchants Sue Over Improper Handling of Disputes
------------------------------------------------------------
Maria Dinzeo at Courthouse News Service reports that online
merchants accuse PayPal Inc. of selling them out in favor of
buyers and credit card companies in a class action lawsuit.
Appliance wholesaler The Weiler Group claims PayPal's
"chronically understaffed" dispute resolution department sides
with buyers without conducting legitimate investigations, leading
to "chargebacks" and "reversals" against seller accounts.

PEDERNALES ELECTRIC: Fee Fight Rages On, Texas Lawyer Reports
-------------------------------------------------------------
Mary Alice Robbins, writing for the Texas Lawyer, reports that
the class action suit against Pedernales Electric Cooperative
Inc. is over, but a fee fight rages on.  On one side are Bill
Ikard, Esq., at Ikard Wynne, LLP, and Graham Kerin Blair, Esq.,
at Baker & McKenzie, who represented class members and received a
portion of $4 million in attorney fees that 250th District Judge

Electric Cooperative Inc., et al., the suit that members of the

promised.  Ms. Robbins' complete report is at http://is.gd/2KzwU


PITNEY BOWES: Settles Blast-Fax Case for Coupons & Legal Fees
-------------------------------------------------------------
Law.com reports that Greg Land at the Fulton County Daily Report
says business service and supply giant Pitney Bowes has agreed to
settle O'Toole v. Pitney Bowes, No. 08-cv-01645 (N.D. Ga.)
(Murphy, J.), a "blast fax" class action by giving $26 coupons to
plaintiffs for each week they received an unwanted fax -- and
$950,000 to the lawyers for the class.  Under the terms of the
$2.9 million settlement, Pitney Bowes admitted to no wrongdoing.  
The plaintiffs alleged violations of the Telephone Consumer
Protection Act, under which a fax advertisement may be sent only
with the recipient's permission or if there's an existing
business relationship.  

Mr. Land notes that a similar case, Fox v. Pitney Bowes, No. 09-
cv-01028 (N.D. Ga.) (Vining, J.), remains pending on the Court's
docket.

R.L. POLK: Fla. DPPA Settlement Notice Extended to DMV Offices
--------------------------------------------------------------
In addition to providing notice by publication, the Honorable
Jose E. Martinez directed the parties in Fresco, et al. v. R.L.
Polk & Co. and Acxiom Corp., Case No. 07-60695 (S.D. Fla.), to
deliver notice of their proposed settlement to each state's
department of motor vehicles and request that the notice be
posted in each public office.  Project Manager Leslie Wissner at
Garden City Group, Inc., the Notice Administrator in this class
action proceeding, took charge of that, and distributed scores of
notices to each state's DMV last month.  

A fairness hearing is scheduled for Dec. 7, 2009, at 10:00 a.m.,
to consider the proposed settlement.  

The suit alleges that R.L. Polk & Co. and Acxiom Corp. knowingly
obtained, used, or disclosed personal information from motor
vehicle records in violation of a federal law, the Driver's
Privacy Protection Act.

SAN DIEGO GAS: Inlanders Claim Utility Charging Improper Rates

action accuses San Diego Gas & Electric of overcharging customers

exponentially higher monthly bills.

ST. PAUL, MINN: 27 Arrested Protesters Prepare to Sure City
-----------------------------------------------------------
Nicole Muehlhausen at KSTP.com reports that 27 citizens arrested
a year ago as they tried to protest outside the Republican
National Convention at the Xcel Energy Center plan to sue the
city for action taken against them.  The plaintiffs say the city
had no probable cause to arrest them, and the police's use of
chemicals and rubber bullets was excessive.  

"You can't take the wrongs of one person and use them as
justification to arrest masses, that's simply illegal.  That's
the basis of this lawsuit," attorney Bob Kolstad tells KSTP.

KSTP's attempts to contact the St. Paul Police Department and the
Ramsey County Sheriff's Office for comment went unreturned.

THELEN LLP: Plaintiffs' Lawyer Predicts Bankruptcy Filing
---------------------------------------------------------
Nate Raymond at the New York Law Journal reports that Thelen LLP
has agreed to a $1.12 million judgment favoring Schiff Hardin to
settle a lawsuit on their sublease contract.

The Law Journal notes that Schiff Hardin isn't likely to see the
money anytime soon, as Thelen's accounts receivable are
increasingly growing stale and it still owes millions of dollars
to Citigroup Inc., its secured lender.  Law Journal states that
the settlement also suggested Thelen's possible bankruptcy
filing, which will put Schiff Hardin in competition with other
unsecured creditors for what is left.

                        Bankruptcy Prediction

The Law Journal quoted Steven Blum, Esq., at Blum Collins, LLP,
who represents Thelen employees in the labor-related class action
proceeding entitled Bergman, et al., v. Thelen LLP, et al., Case
No. 08-cv-05322 (N.D. Calif.), as saying, "I would expect Thelen
to file for bankruptcy within 89 days of any significant judgment
or award.  About a month from now you would expect Thelen to file
for Chapter 11.  That's our expectation."

Schiff Hardin said in court documents that it signed a four-year
agreement in 2007 with Thelen to sublease up to three floors at
900 Third Avenue, a space that had housed Brown Raysman Millstein
Felder & Steiner before that firm merged with Thelen Reid &
Priest in 2006.

Citing Schiff Hardin, the Law Journal relates that when partners
at Thelen voted to dissolve the Company in December 2008, it
missed its last rent payment to its landlord -- the Paramount
Group Inc. -- and defaulted on its lease for the floors at 900
Third that Schiff Hardin was subleasing.  Schiff Hardin, the
report states, said that to keep the space, it was forced to
enter into a new lease with Paramount that carried higher costs.  
Additional cost over those in the Thelen sublease agreement was
at $1.43 million, the report says, citing Schiff Hardin, which
asked the Manhattan Supreme Court to order Thelen to make up the
difference.

According to the Law Journal, Thelen initially denied the
accusations, saying that Schiff Hardin had failed to state a
claim under which the court could grant relief, until the Company
and Schiff Hardin agreed to settle on July 27.

Schiff Hardin partner Carl Oberdier, Esq., in a letter dated
August 3, asked Judicial Hearing Office Ira Gammerman to enter
judgment "as soon as practicable," the Law Journal reports.  Law
Journal relates that the court entered judgment on August 18.

The Law Journal notes that by obtaining a judgment, Schiff Hardin
was able to fix the dollar amount of its claim before Thelen
files for bankruptcy, but still remains an unsecured creditor.

Peter Gilhuly Esq., at Latham & Watkins advises Thelen in its
wind-down, the Law Journal reports.

Thelen LLP, formerly known as Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner
-- http://thelen.com/-- is a bicoastal American law firm in
process of dissolution.  It was formed as a product between two
mergers between California and New York-based law firms, mostly
recently in 2006.  Its headcount peaked at roughly 600 attorneys
in 2006, and had 500 early in 2008, with offices in eight cities
in the United States, England and China.


WELLS FARGO: Calif. Court Certifies Minority Mortgagor Class
------------------------------------------------------------
Austin Kilgore at HousingWire.com reports that a lawsuit filed in
2005 on behalf of minority mortgagors against Wells Fargo will
proceed as a class action case after a Los Angeles Superior Court
judge certified it as such.

The suit alleges Wells Fargo discriminated against as many as
10,000 borrowers in minority communities by charging more for
loans than borrowers paid in other parts of Los Angeles County.
While Wells Fargo branches in some parts of the county were given
access to a software product that allowed loan officers to
provide discounts to customers, that same software, and in turn,
the discounts, was not available to branches located in minority
communities, according to a statement from the office of the law
firm representing the class.

"Well Fargo allowed some bank branches to use the program to
price loans, and at the same time prevented other bank branches
from doing so. The branches that were prevented from using the
program were in predominately minority communities," said A.
Barry Cappello, managing partner Santa Barbara-based Cappello &
Noel law firm. "Those branches that could use the program were in
predominately white communities."

The plaintiffs are seeking $4,000 in damages for each of the
loans allegedly affected.  Mortgagors eligible to join the case
must have obtained a first-lien mortgage for more than $150,000
from Wells Fargo Bank or Wells Fargo Home Mortgage branches in
specific portions of Los Angeles County between May 2002 and
December 2005.

Leila Noel, Esq., another Cappello & Noel partner, said Wells
Fargo loan officers asked to use the discount software, but upper
management would not allow it.

"A class action is the appropriate means to bring this type of
discriminatory practice to light," Mr. Cappello said.  "The
majority of class members are not even aware that they paid or
continue to pay extra for their home loans. And they never would
have known if it weren't for conscientious former Wells Fargo
employees who decided to speak out."

Mr. Kilgore's calls seeking comment from Wells Fargo were not
returned at the time this story was published.

IMMUNOSYN CORPORATION: Shareholder Suit Filed in S.D. Tex.
----------------------------------------------------------
Stanford Law School's Securities Class Action Clearinghouse
reports that a securities fraud lawsuit captioned Campbell v.
Immunosyn Corporation, et al., Case No. 09-CV-00197 (S.D. Tex.)
(Hanen, J.), was filed against Immunosyn Corporation on August
24, 2009.  Argyll Biotechnologies LLC, James T. Miceli, Douglas
A. Mcclain, Jr., Frank Morales, Argyll Equities, LLC, Stephen
Ferrone and Doulgas A. Mcclain, are the other named defendants.

Immunnosyn Corporation, Stanford relates, is a development stage
company. The Company owns a worldwide license to market,
distribute and sell a biopharmaceutical drug product, referred to
as SF-1019, for multiple uses, including the treatment of any and
all diseases, and pathological conditions. Under the terms of its
license, the Company is further granted the rights to any
improvement of SF-1019 and other compounds, which are developed
under the same technology platform, and which are chemically
similar to SF-1019.

According to the complaint, the Defendants are in violation of 15
U.S.C. Sec. 78r and/or 17 C.F.R. Sec. 240.10b-5 by making false
and misleading statements concerning Immunyson and SF-1019 in SEC
filings, including but not limited to: a) failing to report
income generated from the sale of SF-1019, b) claiming in a
Form l0-QSB for the period ending Sept. 30, 2007, that Immunyson
had the "exclusive worldwide license to market, distribute and
sell . . . SF-1019," c) failing to timely report in its SEC
filings a lawsuit brought by Salvatore and Frank Bramante against
Immunyson, d) claiming that Argyll Biotech's only data regarding
the safety and efficacy of SF-1019 is based on uncontrolled
observations of a precursor to SF-1019 among a small group of
individuals, not SF-1019 itself, e) failing to disclose that SF-
1019 was on clinical hold, d) misrepresenting the approvals
obtained for SF-1019, 0 failing to disclose that SF-1019 was
being sold through channels outside of Immunyson, g) failing to
disclose the business relationship between Alan Osmond and
Immunyson and/or Argyll Biotech, and h) selling a water/saline
solution/and/or product without active agents as SF-1019.

J.P. JEANNERET: Lowey Dannenberg Files Madoff Suit in S.D.N.Y.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Lowey Dannenberg Cohen & Hart, P.C. has filed a class action
lawsuit in the United States District Court, Southern District of
New York, against defendants J.P. Jeanneret Associates, Inc.,
John P. Jeanneret and Paul L. Perry, Ivy Asset Management
Corporation, Ivy Asset Management LLC, Lawrence Simon, Howard
Wohl, Adam L. Geiger, Jeffrey R. Lindenbaum, John D. Rogers, Sean
C. Simon, Kevin J. Bannon, Steven Pisarkiewicz, Robert Meschi,
Susan Rabinowitz, Michael Singer, Alan Chuang, Gregory Van
Inwegen, Sean Cumiskey, Stuart Davies, Peter Rose, Joseph Burns,
Mark Santero, Peter D. Noris, Farzine Hachemian, Scott E.
Wennerholm, Jonathan Little, Ronald P. O'Hanley, and Bank of New
York Mellon Corporation, on behalf of all persons, other than
Defendants, who, as a result of investment management and
advisory services rendered by Jeanneret Associates and Ivy,
invested directly with Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities,
LLC, from January 1, 1996, to the present, to recover damages
caused by Defendants' violations of the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934, Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1974,
Investment Advisors Act of 1940, and common law claims, including
breach of fiduciary duties.

The case is styled Plumbers & Steamfitters Local 267 et al., v.
J.P. Jeanneret Associates, Inc., et al. A copy of the complaint
filed in this action is available from the Court, or can be
viewed on the Lowey Dannenberg Cohen & Hart, P.C., Web site at
http://www.lowey.com/

The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, unbeknownst
to Class members, Defendants failed to perform the necessary due
diligence that they were being compensated to perform as
investment advisors, managers and fiduciaries, and proximately
caused millions of dollars in losses by placing the Class'
investment assets in Madoff entities. Defendants either knew or
were reckless in not knowing that assets placed with Madoff were
at risk because his enterprise was a massive Ponzi scheme.
Defendants ignored numerous red flags, including the abnormally
high and stable positive investment results reportedly achieved
by Madoff regardless of market conditions; inconsistencies
between publicly available financial information and the
purported amounts that Madoff was trading and managing for
clients; and the fact that Madoff was audited by a small, obscure
accounting firm.

Jeanneret issued statements in, among other documents, investment
management agreements, that were false and misleading because
they stated that Jeanneret and Ivy would conduct thorough due
diligence with respect to assets under Jeanneret's management.
Plaintiffs allege that Defendant Ivy was Jeanneret's investment
consultant and that Ivy shared in Jeanneret`s investment
management fees in violation of ERISA. Defendants Jeanneret and
Ivy failed to perform the represented due diligence and
oversight, and abdicated their fiduciary duties to the investors
by entrusting the Class` assets with Madoff.

If you invested in Madoff as a result of investment management
and advisory services rendered by Jeanneret Associates and/or Ivy
during the Class Period, you may request that the Court appoint
you as lead plaintiff by October 30, 2009.

A "lead plaintiff" is a representative party that acts on behalf
of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to
be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the
class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class
members, and that the class member will adequately represent the
class.  Under certain circumstances, one or more class members
may together serve as lead plaintiffs.  Your ability to share in
any recovery, however, is not affected by your decision on
whether or not to seek appointment as a lead plaintiff.  You may
retain Lowey Dannenberg Cohen & Hart, or other counsel of your
choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.

prosecution of class actions in state and federal trial and
appellate courts across the country.  The firm has accomplished
attorneys in various practice areas with offices in New York and

ULTRASHORT FINANCIALS: Pearson Simon Files Fraud Suit in D. Md.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Pearson, Simon, Warshaw & Penny, LLP, and Tydings & Rosenberg,
LLP, filed a class action lawsuit on August 31, 2009, in the
United States District Court for the District of Maryland on
behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired shares
of the UltraShort Financials ProShares Fund ("SKF").  SKF is an
exchange-traded fund offered by ProShares Trust to investors
pursuant to a materially false and misleading registration
statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Persons who bought shares of SKF are members of the Plaintiff
Class as defined in the Complaint.  Plaintiff seeks to recover
losses, on behalf of the Class, under Sections 11 and 15 of the
Securities Act of 1933.

If you are a member of the Class, you have the right to seek to
be appointed by the United States District Court as the lead
plaintiff in this class action on behalf of purchasers of SKF
shares.  Any request to be appointed as lead plaintiff must be
filed with the United States District Court for the District
of Maryland no later than October 30, 2009.  As lead plaintiff,
you would be required to act as the representative of all absent
class members.  Your right to share in any recovery obtained in
this action is not affected by whether you seek to be appointed
lead plaintiff. If you would like more information regarding the
Complaint or your rights as a member of the Class, please contact
George S. Trevor, Esq. at the Pearson, Simon, Warshaw & Penny law
firm at (415) 433-9000, or via email at gtrevor@pswplaw.com.  You
may view a copy of the Complaint online at
http://www.pswplaw.com/

You may also retain counsel of your choice to represent you in
this action.

The Complaint alleges that the registration statement filed by
ProShares Trust, pursuant to which SKF shares were sold to
investors, failed to adequately disclose that SKF shares should
not be held more than a single trading day and were not an
appropriate hedge against a decline in U.S.-based financial
stocks.  SKF is an inverse leveraged ETF that seeks investment
returns that are two times the inverse performance of the Dow
Jones U.S. Financials Index (the "DJFI"), which is a benchmark
index for large U.S. banks and insurance companies.  Defendants
represented that SKF was an investment that provided a hedge
against a decline in the stocks constituting the DJFI. Yet, as
the DJFI declined substantially in 2008, SKF also declined
contrary to the representations made by Defendants. For example,
in a six week period from September 15, 2008 through October 31,
2008, the DJFI declined by over 17%.  Despite a reasonable
expectation based upon Defendants' disclosures that SKF would
rise by up to 34% during this period, SKF actually fell by nearly
6%.

The Complaint names as defendants ProShares Trust; ProShare
Advisors, LLC; Louis M. Mayberg; Michael L. Sapir; Russell S.
Reynolds, III; Michael Wachs; Simon D. Collier; and SEI
Investments Distribution Co.  The Complaint alleges that
Defendants violated the Securities Act by filing a registration
statement for SKF that contained materially false and misleading
statements.  As set forth in more detail in the Complaint,
Defendants failed to disclose the following risks: (a) the
mathematical probability that SKF's performance will fail to
track the performance of the DJFI over any period longer than a
single trading day; (b) that the greater volatility experienced
by the DJFI will result in SKF underperforming the DJFI by a
material amount; (c) that SKF is not a directional play on the
performance of U.S. financial stocks, but dependent on the
volatility and path the DJFI takes over any time period greater
than a single day; (d) that SKF was not a simple investment that
could be used over time to hedge against a downturn in U.S.
financial stocks; (f) that based upon the mathematics of
compounding, the volatility of the DJFI and probability theory
SKF was highly unlikely to achieve its stated investment
objectives over time periods longer than a single trading day.
