AMERICAN HONDA: Settles Class Action Over Civic Rapid Tire Wear
---------------------------------------------------------------
Kyla Asbury, writing for Legal Newsline, reports that a settlement
has been reached in a class action lawsuit against American Honda
Motor Company for tire wear in Honda Civics and Honda Civic
Hybrids.

Honda Civic and Honda Civic Hybrid owners who allegedly
experienced uneven or rapid rear tire wear won preliminary
approval of a class action settlement over allegations that Honda
knowingly sold and leased the vehicles with a rear suspension
defect.

The court approved attorneys fees to class counsel in the amount
of more than $2.8 million and approved expenses to class counsel
in the amount of $303,197.14, according to U.S. District Judge
Margaret M. Morrow's final judgment that was filed Jan. 21 in the
U.S. District Court for the Central District of California's
Western Division.

The court also awarded a service award of $35,000 in total and
directed Honda to pay the amount to the representative plaintiffs
through class counsel to be distributed to David J. Keegan, Luis
Garcia, Eric Ellis, Charles Wright, Bet Kolstad and Carol Hinkle
in the amount of $5,500 each; and Shawn Phillips and Benittia Hall
in the amount of $1,000 each.

The plaintiffs claimed Honda knew that its 2006 and 2007 Honda
Civics and 2006 through 2008 Civic Hybrids had defective rear
suspensions through pre-release testing data, early consumer
complaints and other internal sources, according to the complaint
filed Dec. 10, 2010, in the U.S. District Court for the Central
District of California-Western Division.

Honda waited until January 2008 to notify customers, according to
the suit.

The plaintiffs claimed as a result of the alleged suspension
defect, the tires on the vehicles wore out unevenly or
prematurely.  There are no safety concerns for owners of these
vehicles, but the wear did cause them to pay out-of-pocket
expenses to fix, according to the suit.

Honda denied their vehicles were defective, but settled the suit
by offering to replace the class members' worn tires and the
allegedly defective part that was causing the tires to wear.
Honda also agreed to reimburse owners and those who leased the
vehicles who had already paid out-of-pocket for the damages.

The plaintiffs were represented by Michael A. Caddell, Cynthia B.
Chapman, Cory S. Fein and Bryan M. Keller of Caddell and Chapman
in Houston; Matthew R. Mendelsohn -- mmendelsohn@mskf.net -- of
Mazie Slater Katz & Freeman LLP in Roseland, N.J.; and Payam
Shahian, Ramtin Shahian and Christopher Swanson of Strategic Legal
Practices APC in Los Angeles.

AMEUBLEMENTS TANGUAY: Court Authorizes Warranty Class Action
------------------------------------------------------------
CBC News reports that a Quebec Court of Appeal judge on Feb. 5
authorized a class-action lawsuit against seven major Quebec
retailers.

The plaintiffs in the lawsuit allege that they were misled into
buying extended warranties prior to July 2010 by employees at
Ameublements Tanguay, Brault & Martineau, Bureau En Gros, Corbeil
Electrique, Sears Canada, Centre Hi-Fi and The Brick.

Since July 2010, businesses have been obligated to inform their
clients that they are in fact protected by a legal warranty before
offering them an extended warranty.

The people involved in the class-action lawsuit are asking for
refunds on the extended warranties they purchased, plus punitive
damages.


ANZ BANK: Financial Redress Seeks More Claims in Fee Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------------
BankingDay reports that a key feature of the judgment in the ANZ
fees class action case is that late payment fees charged more than
six years ago may be claimed and are not barred by the statute of
limitations.

Financial Redress, owned by the litigation funder IMF Bentham, has
thus resumed taking expressions of interest for the ANZ case and
for actions against half a dozen other banks.  The firm had
suspended this process before Christmas.

Maurice Blackburn's head of class actions, Andrew Watson, hailed
the decision on late payment fees as a milestone for Australian
bank customers.

ASTON MARTIN: Recalls Vehicles Over Pedal Issues
------------------------------------------------
Christopher Jensen, writing for The New York Times, reports that
after discovering that a supplier in China had used counterfeit
material, Aston Martin said it would re-do a 5,000-vehicle recall
issued because the accelerator pedal assembly could break.  The
automaker informed the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration of the do-over in a report posted on the agency's
website.

The models covered by the recall are the 2008-14 DB9 and V8
Vantage, the 2009-12 DBS, the 2010-12 Rapide, the 2014 Rapide S,
the 2011-12 V12 Vantage, the 2011-14 V8 Vantage S and the 2012
Virage.

In May, Aston Martin said it would recall about 689 vehicles
because the throttle pedal arm might break, returning the engine
to idle.  But last fall the automaker said it had underestimated
the number of vehicles affected by the problem and increased that
number to about 5,000.

Then, the company said, a dealer found that the replacement part
broke when it was being installed.

"Initial tests on the failed pedal arm have shown that the Tier
Three Supplier used counterfeit material," the report said.

Aston Martin said it was not able to duplicate the failure on any
other pedals made of the same material, nor was it aware of any
other failures.  Nevertheless the automaker says it plans start
recall from scratch.  That means almost 1,100 vehicles that were
already fixed will get a new assembly, as well as about 3,800 that
have yet to be repaired.

In other actions:

Triumph Motorcycles recalled about 2,800 motorcycles because the
engine could unexpectedly shut down, according to a report posted
on the N.H.T.S.A. website.  The action covers the 2012-14 Tiger
Explorer ABS A1, the 2013-14 Tiger Explorer Spoke ABS XC A1 and
the 2013-14 Trophy SE A1.  Triumph blamed the engine control
computer for the problem and said it learned of it through
warranty complaints. There was no mention of any accidents.

The safety agency is investigating complaints that the side air
bags on the 2008 Honda Accord have deployed without the vehicle's
being in an accident, according to a report posted on the agency
website.  N.H.T.S.A. says it has received complaints from 28
owners, who in some cases say the air bags deployed when the doors
were shut.  The agency estimated that its investigation covers
about 363,000 vehicles.

The agency is also investigating complaints of braking problems on
2007-8 Toyota Camry hybrid models, according to a report on its
website.  The agency says it has received 59 complaints from
owners about "either delayed braking actuation or increased brake-
pedal effort."  Twenty-four of those complaints said the problem
occurred at speeds of 40 miles per hour or higher.

"I was approaching a pedestrian crossing, the ABS light and check
VSC light went on in my Camry Hybrid," one owner wrote in a
complaint filed with the agency.  "When I tried to apply the
brakes to stop I realized that the brakes completely failed.  I
did a sharp, evasive turn and hit the curb hard in an attempt to
not run over the pedestrians."

The agency estimated that the investigation covered about 30,000
vehicles.

CITIGROUP INC: Settles Force-Placed Insurance Suit for $110MM
-------------------------------------------------------------
Reuters reports that Citigroup Inc. has agreed to pay $110 million
to thousands of homeowners who were forcibly charged expensive
property insurance premiums, a court filing showed, as several
U.S. banks and insurers were criticized by regulators over such
practices.

The class-action lawsuit filed in a New York federal court
involves "force-placed insurance," which is placed by a bank or
other mortgage lenders to protect their interests in a property if
the homeowner's insurance lapses.  The class members who were
charged for force-placed hazard insurance will receive back 12.5
percent of the premium upon submitting a claim, as per an
agreement between Citigroup and the plaintiffs.

The agreement, which needs to be approved by the court, calls for
Citi to stop accepting commissions for force-placed insurance for
a period of six years from the effective date of the settlement.

One of Citi's unit that deals with the insurance received a 15
percent commission on hazard insurance premiums during the
proposed settlement class period, according to the filing.

Citi has also agreed to refund 8 percent each of force-placed
flood insurance premiums and force-placed wind insurance premiums,
even though no commissions were paid to Citi or its affiliates on
flood or wind insurance.

The plaintiffs in total were charged about $758 million in hazard
insurance premiums and $173 million in flood insurance premiums,
according to the filing.

The case is Gordon Casey, Duane Skinner and Celeste Coonan,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated vs
Citigroup Inc, Case No. 12-00820, U.S. District Court, Northern
District of New York.


COOPER TIRE: Robbins Arroyo Law Firm Files Class Action
-------------------------------------------------------
Robbins Arroyo L.L.C., a San Diego law firm specializing in
shareholder rights, has filed a federal securities fraud class-
action lawsuit against Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. in connection with
Cooper's failed merger with India's Apollo Tyres Ltd.

The action was filed Feb. 4 in the U.S. District Court for the
District of Delaware.  Specifically, the suit alleges that Cooper
executives concealed the opposition of Chengshan Group, Cooper's
joint venture partner in China, to the merger with Apollo.

Chengshan's opposition -- and the subsequent strike by workers at
Cooper Chengshan Tire Co. Ltd. -- caused Cooper's stock value to
plummet, according to the suit.  Per-share prices for Cooper stock
fell $5.55 to $25.72 on Oct. 7, 2013, and again to $23.82 on
Nov. 8, Robbins Arroyo said.

This is the second class action against Findlay, Ohio-based Cooper
to be filed in the Delaware federal court since Cooper and Apollo
terminated merger discussions Dec. 30.

In January, two New York law firms -- Entwhistle and Cappucci
L.L.P. and Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann L.L.P. -- filed a
class-action suit against Cooper, Cooper CEO Roy Armes and Cooper
CFO Bradley Hughes.

The plaintiffs in both actions include anyone who purchased Cooper
stock between June 12 and Nov. 8, 2013, and Cooper stockholders of
record on Aug. 30, 2013, when shareholders voted on the merger.

FARMERS INSURANCE: Judge Approves $48.5MM Class Action Settlement
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Class Counsel for Plaintiffs; Reich and Binstock, L.L.P., the Law
Office of Stephen M. Hansen, the Law Office of Scott P. Nealey,
Susman Godfrey LLP, and Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP on
Feb. 5 disclosed that Judge Vicki L. Hogan of the Pierce County
Superior Court entered a final judgment approving the settlement
and dismissing all claims in the action with prejudice in the
diminished value class action lawsuit Moeller v. Farmers Ins. Co.
of Washington, Case No. 99-2-07850-6 (Pierce County, WA).

Plaintiffs alleged that Farmers failed to pay for "diminished
value," which is the loss in value suffered by certain vehicles
after they are repaired, in adjusting and settling certain types
of collision and comprehensive losses with its insureds.
Plaintiffs alleged that Farmers' failure to pay for diminished
value was a breach of contract and a violation of Washington's
Consumer Protection Act.  During the litigation, the Washington
Supreme Court interpreted the contract to cover diminished value
under the collision and comprehensive portions of the policy, as
written, and the case was set for trial on August 19, 2013 when it
was ultimately resolved.  Farmers denies any liability.

The settlement resolves all the Class Members Claims against
Farmers Ins. Co of Washington in exchange for the payment by
Farmers of up to $48.5 million.  Certain Farmers insureds who were
members of the Class and timely submitted valid claims will be
entitled to monetary compensation from the settlement.

The settlement covered individuals who met the following
requirements: (1) they had an automobile insurance policy with
Farmers Ins. Co. of Washington, (2) they received payment between
May 30, 1993 to September 13, 2002 for an accident involving
structural (frame) damage and/or deformed sheet metal and/or where
body or paint work was needed, (3) they did not receive payment
for diminished value, (4) the repair estimate was at least $1,000,
(5) the vehicle was at most six years old, and (6) the vehicle had
less than 90,000 miles on it.

GUAM SHIPYARD: Former Workers File Class Action Over Terminations
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Mindy Aguon, writing for KUAM News, reports that former Guam
Shipyard workers have filed a class action lawsuit in the District
Court against their former employer.  Russ Carlberg, Roel Dacasin,
Reynaldo Galvez, Delmario Cortez, and Gary Chang are suing Guam
Industrial Services and president Mathew Pothen personally.

The workers claim their October 15, 2013 termination was in
violation of federal law because they were not giving proper
warning that is outlined in federal law.  The lawsuit spells out
how the workers were terminated immediately and given one hour to
remove all of their belongings despite working at the shipyard for
more than 15 years.

Additionally they argue that the while the local workforce was
terminated, the shipyard retained its H2 labor force.  The
terminations came after the shipyard was not awarded the contract
for ship repair services for the military.

The shipyard and Pothen have been served and have until
February 26 to file a response.

the People's Republic of China ("PRC") resulted in pyramid selling
schemes in violation of PRC law; and (ii) as a result of the
above, the Company's financial statements were materially false
and misleading at all relevant times.

POWERCOR: Fire Victims Face Long Wait in Horsham Settlement
-----------------------------------------------------------
Ashley Argoon, writing for Herald Sun, reports that Black Saturday
victims believe they will be fighting for years before they see
the money a power company was ordered to pay them in 2011.

Victims in the Horsham class action said they were mentally
exhausted from the two-year-long battle and some had agreed to
accept 50 per cent less compensation than they believed their
assets were worth in order to move on.

Electricity giant Powercor reached a settlement in December 2011
after conceding that its live power line started the Horsham blaze
when it fell from a pole and ignited grass.

Claimants were to be paid 55 per cent of their assessed losses,
but the value of those assets has been debated by the power
company since mid-2012, with property owners forced to provide
evidence to support their valuation.  None of the 219 claimants in
the Horsham class action will receive their full payout until
every case is agreed, but some of the compensation for resolved
claims has been handed out.

But Powercor spokesman Drew Douglas said the company would "like
to see a swift resolution to the settlement process".

Maddens Lawyers is representing victims against Powercor in three
Black Saturday class actions, for the Horsham, Colerain and
Weerite-Pomborneit fires.

Maddens senior partner and leader of class actions Brendan
Pendergast said all the class actions had been settled, but he did
not know when the almost-300 claimants could expect full payment.

Mr. Douglas said the company had paid "each and every claimant for
damages fairly assessed in accordance with the settlement
agreements".

The Horsham bushfire class action was the first of the Black
Saturday claims to be settled and will likely be the first
completed.

The class action over the Kinglake-Kilmore East fire is ongoing,
despite beginning in March last year, while the last class action,
over the Murrindindi-Marysville blaze, is expected to start in
October.

Maurice Blackburn lawyers will hold a meeting for those involved
in the Murrindindi-Marysville class action at the Murrindindi
Woodbourne Hub on Feb. 14 at 7:15 p.m.

SAIC INC: Ruling May Set Precedent in Contingency Disclosure
------------------------------------------------------------
Tammy Whitehouse, writing for Compliance Week, reports that a
recent U.S. District Court decision on a securities class action
suit may give companies some ammunition to fight back against
demands for increasingly speculative disclosure related to
uncertain legal actions.

Gibson Dunn litigation partner Drew Tulumello --
atulumello@gibsondunn.com -- says he's hopeful the decision will
be regarded as one that sets a precedent for how far companies
should be expected to go to make judgments about lawsuits or other
pending legal actions where the company simply doesn't know how a
given situation might turn out.

The decision comes from U.S. District Court Judge Deborah Batts in
a class action suit against SAIC Inc., a defense contractor in
Virginia caught up in a kickback scheme involving a "CityTime"
payroll system implementation for the city of New York in 2000.
Three men on SAIC's payroll were convicted of taking $30 million
in bribes to steer the work to certain subcontractors.  SAIC
entered into a $500 million deferred prosecution agreement to
settle the allegations, says Mr. Tulumello.

In a class action suit defended by Gibson Dunn, SAIC faced
additional allegations that the company should have disclosed the
government's claim against the company earlier than it did, says
Mr. Tulumello.  Companies are required under accounting standards
to disclose in their financial statements any contingencies, such
as pending lawsuits or other legal actions, that could cost the
company money.  Historically known as Financial Accounting
Standard No. 5, or FAS 5, now contained in the Accounting
Standards Codification under Topic 450, the standard provides
criteria for when companies should begin making such disclosures.
Those criteria have been under strain in recent years as investors
have complained about being blindsided by surprise settlements
with little or no forewarning.

The Financial Accounting Standards Board attempted to revise the
standard but met heavy resistance, then turned it over to the
Securities and Exchange Commission suggesting increased
enforcement of the existing standard.  The SEC has made it a point
of focus in its routine review and comment process the past few
years, compelling companies to reveal more about what's happening
in pending legal matters before investors are hit with final
decisions.

As the SEC has become more aggressive in demanding earlier
disclosures, the plaintiff's bar has followed suit, says
Mr. Tulumello.  The action against SAIC "is very typical of a wave
of FAS 5 litigation going around," he says.  The suit claimed
shareholders should have learned about the investigation earlier
than they did, and as a result the stock price was inflated.

Initially the court sided with the plaintiffs but then agreed to
reconsider, says Mr. Tulumello.  In her reconsideration,
Judge Batt conceded the court applied the wrong test to when a
disclosure would be required.  After re-examining the standard and
the timing of disclosures, Judge Batt pointed out the harm that
can come from expecting companies to make speculative disclosures.
The original decision "would permit the prosecution of a case
where evidence is insufficient to support going forward," she
wrote.  "It would unfairly compel the company, which has already
been beset by the massive fraud related to the CityTime project,
to defend a costly suit, and would cause further harm to defendant
SAIC and its stakeholders."

Mr. Tulumello says the facts of the SAIC case illustrate the
difficulty in applying FAS 5.  "It's very hard to predict in the
middle of an investigation how that investigation will end up," he
says.  "If in hindsight plaintiffs lawyers can say you should have
told us earlier, and if that standard is applied too leniently,
companies will face a wrath of impossible judgment calls," he
says.

SINGAPORE AIRLINES: Class Action Settlement Hits Fiscal 3Q Income
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Gaurav Raghuvanshi, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reports
that Singapore Airlines Ltd. on Feb. 6 reported a sharp decline in
its quarterly net profit and flagged a difficult start of the year
as pressure to discount ticket prices is hurting yields.

The premium carrier's passenger yields, a key measure of
profitability, have fallen for three straight years as the carrier
was forced to sell more seats at a discount amid cutthroat
competition.

Passenger yield, or the revenue per passenger for every kilometer
flown, fell to 11.2 Singapore cents (8.8 U.S. cents) in the
October-to-December period from 11.4 Singapore cents in the same
period of the previous year, Singapore Airlines said in a
statement.

In the first nine months of this fiscal year ending March 31,
passenger yield has fallen to 11.1 Singapore cents from 11.4
Singapore cents in the same period of the previous year.

Singapore Airlines's net profit in the three months ended December
31 was S$50.1 million, compared with S$142.5 million in the same
quarter a year earlier.  Revenue was flat at S$3.87 billion from
S$3.86 billion a year ago, the airline said.

The company attributed the decline in its fiscal third quarter
income to a S$78 million payment to settle a class-action case
against the airline for its cargo business in the U.S. Singapore
Airlines had said on Dec. 20 that it reached settlement with the
plaintiffs in the case without admitting to any wrongdoing.

Derek Wilson, on Behalf of himself and All Others Similarly
Situated v. Tower Group International, Ltd., Michael H. Lee,

Company Limited, and Amtrust Financial Services, Inc., Case No.
1:14-cv-00254-HB (S.D.N.Y., January 14, 2014) arises out of the
Defendants' pursuit of a sale of Tower to ACP Re at an alleged

that offers commercial, personal, and specialty insurance products
and services in the U.S. through its U.S. insurance subsidiaries,
and also offers reinsurance products globally.  The Individual
Defendants are directors and officers of Tower.

ACP Re is a Bermuda exempted company and privately owned Bermuda
based reinsurance company.  The controlling shareholder of
defendant ACP Re is a trust established by the founder of
defendant AmTrust, Maiden Holdings, Ltd., and National General
Holdings Corporation.  Merger Sub is a Bermuda exempted company
and wholly owned subsidiary of defendant ACP Re.  AmTrust is a
Delaware corporation headquartered in New York.  AmTrust is a
multinational insurance holding company, which, through its
insurance carriers, offers specialty, property, and casualty
insurance products, including worker's compensation, commercial,
automobile, and general liability, extended service, and warranty
coverage.

The symptoms passed within two hours.

Health officials say the cause of the illness remains
undetermined.

Mars Foodservices US says it voluntarily recalled the products

YAHOO! INC: Loses Motion for Summary Judgment in TCPA Class Action
------------------------------------------------------------------
Kyla Asbury, writing for Legal Newsline, reports that Yahoo!
Inc.'s motion for summary judgment has been denied in a class
action lawsuit filed against the company for alleged violations of
the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

The defendant's motion for summary judgment was based on three
arguments:

   - Rafael Davis Sherman's claim must fail as a matter of law
because the TCPA was not intended to reach a single confirmatory
text message;

   - The case does not involve use of an automatic telephone
dialing system, as defined by the TCPA; and

   - Yahoo! is immune from liability under the Good Samaritan
exemption in the Telecommunications Act.

The judge's order was filed Feb. 3 in the U.S. District Court for
the Southern District of California at San Diego.

"Unlike the plaintiff in [Ibey v. Taco Bell Corp.] Plaintiff
Sherman did not send a voluntary message to Yahoo! prior to
receipt of the unsolicited text message.  Plaintiff did not
provide Yahoo! prior express consent or take any action which
would have justified a response or confirmation by Yahoo! Based on
these facts, the court concludes plaintiff did not offer his prior
express consent to Yahoo! to be contacted . . ." the order states.

Using the principles under the TCPA, the court concludes that,
absent prior express consent, a single call or text with use of an
ATDS may be actionable under the TCPA, according to the order.

Rafael Davis Sherman claimed Yahoo! negligently and/or
intentionally contacted him on his cell phone, which is in
violation of the TCPA, according to a complaint filed Jan. 8,
2013.

Mr. Sherman claimed Yahoo! invaded his privacy and the TCPA was
designed to prevent calls like the ones he endured and to protect
his privacy.

Yahoo! offers its users an instant message service that provides
users the opportunity to send free text messages and at no time
did Mr. Sherman provide his cell phone number to Yahoo! through
any medium, according to the suit.

Mr. Sherman claimed the class includes "all persons within the
United States who received a text message substantially similar or
identical to the text message . . . from defendant without prior
express consent . . ."

Mr. Sherman is seeking $500 for himself and each class member in
statutory damages for negligent violations of the TCPA and $1,500
for himself and each class member in statutory damages for known
and/or willful violations of the TCPA.  He is being represented by
Abbas Kazerounian of the Kazerouni Law Group.

The case has been assigned to District Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel.

Diego case number: 3:13-cv-00041


* Costs of Securities Class Actions Outweigh Investor Benefits
--------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR) on Feb. 5
released a new white paper "What's Wrong with Securities Class
Action Lawsuits?" which demonstrates the "irrationality and
ineffectiveness" of securities class actions, and concludes that
the costs that they impose on investors outweigh any benefits.

The paper, which includes the latest related studies and academic
research, cites that in 2013, attorneys' fees and expenses in
securities class actions totaled $1.1 billion and that over the
past decade the amount that went to plaintiffs' attorneys from
settlements was more than $10 billion.

On March 5th, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in
the case of Halliburton v. Erica P. John Fund.  The Court will
decide whether to leave in place a judicially-created shortcut
that makes it easier for securities fraud class actions to be
certified by relaxing the traditional requirement that plaintiffs
must prove that they "relied" on an alleged misstatement.

"For decades, the securities class action system has been touted
as championing the average investor, when in truth most investors
receive little or nothing and the system has become a billion-
dollar special interest cash machine," said Lisa A. Rickard,
president of ILR.  "The upcoming Supreme Court case and the
surrounding policy debate will examine the merits of the
securities class action system.  But any system that benefits a
few plaintiffs' lawyers at the expense of millions of investors
and pension holders must be changed."

In addition to the legal question before the court is the policy
question of whether securities class action lawsuits actually
benefit investors and deter wrongdoing.  The research cited in the
paper shows that securities class actions do little to deter
future violations or uncover wrongdoing.

"What's Wrong with Securities Class Action Lawsuits?" also
addresses plaintiffs' lawyers' continued control of the
litigation, the abuses that led to criminal convictions in the
2000s, and multiple ways injured investors can vindicate their
rights without the fraud-on-the-market principle.

The paper was prepared for ILR by Andrew J. Pincus of Mayer Brown.

ILR seeks to promote civil justice reform through legislative,
political, judicial, and educational activities at the national,
state, and local levels.

* Group Calls for Revamp of Kentucky's Medical Malpractice System
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Associated Press reports that Kentucky lawmakers are being
urged by a coalition of powerful health care and business groups
to revamp the state's medical malpractice system.

The new group, called the Care First Kentucky Coalition, is
pushing for legislation to create medical review panels, which the
coalition sees as a deterrent against meritless malpractice
lawsuits.  Coalition members include the Kentucky Medical
Association and Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.

Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer says that overhauling the
medical malpractice system is a key issue for Senate Republicans
in the legislative session.

House Speaker Greg Stumbo says he would be open to considering
review panels for malpractice lawsuits against nursing homes.  But
Mr. Stumbo says the panels' findings should not be admissible at
trial.  He says panel members could testify because they would be
subject to cross-examination.


* Nursing Medication Errors Lead to Hospitalizations in Illinois
----------------------------------------------------------------
Medication errors in Illinois nursing homes are leading to
hospitalizations for dangerously low blood sugar, visual
hallucinations and labored breathing, according to information
obtained by NBC 5 Investigates via a search of public records.

According to Chris Coffey's NBC Chicago, state health inspectors
documented 384 nursing home medication errors since 2011.  Two
residents of care facilities died after recorded medication errors
and one resident's untreated infection led to an amputation,
according to Illinois Department of Public Health data.

"You're going to have errors, unfortunately.  But we hope that
there are no errors due to negligence," said IDPH director LaMar
Hasbrouck, MD.

Tanya Karney-Brown moved her brother, Joseph, into The Renaissance
Park South nursing home in Roseland back in 2005 after Joseph had
suffered a stroke and a heart attack.

"We checked it out.  Everything was fine.  So we felt that would
be the perfect place," Ms. Karney-Brown said.

Two years later Joseph was diagnosed with gastrointestinal cancer.
Ms. Karney-Brown said Joseph responded well to his cancer
medication, Gleevac.

Months later, however, Joseph's condition changed.

His family discovered the nursing home did not give Joseph his
cancer medication for nearly one year.  According to a lawsuit
filed by the family, the nursing home failed to get Joseph back to
his oncologist for follow up appointments.

By the time the error was noticed, Joseph's cancer had spread.
Joseph passed away in early 2010.

"He could have been still here, you know, doing what he does best
and getting better," Ms. Karney-Brown said.  "But now
unfortunately, he's not here anymore."

Joseph's family filed a lawsuit and reached a settlement with the
nursing home.

"We regret that the incident occurred and used it as an
opportunity to better ourselves and the care we provide," wrote
The Renaissance Park South administrator Rolando Carter in a
statement to NBC 5 Investigates.

According to Mr. Carter, the facility has since partnered with a
national pharmaceutical provider to ensure proper distribution of
medication to each resident they serve.  He wrote the facility
also performs regular audits to ensure medications are being
dispensed properly and timely.

"Our top priority is the health and safety of our residents and we
take every precaution to ensure that highest level of care,"
Mr. Carter wrote.

Mr. Hasbrouck said Illinois currently has a 9% facility citation
rate for medication errors.  He said that compares "favorably" to
the national average. However, Mr. Hasbrouck said the state's goal
is a 5% citation rate.

"We can do better and that's one of the reasons why we've
stiffened some of the requirements," Mr. Hasbrouck said.

Health inspectors monitor care facilities' training standards and
operating procedures and systems for protection in terms of
medications.  Facilities face fines and penalties for documented
medication errors.  They can also be shut down or not re-certified

Sometimes handwriting can cause errors in terms of dosage,
Hasbrouck said.  The errors can result in a resident getting the
wrong medication, too much medication or not enough medication.

"They (nurses) have to be very, vigilant in terms of how they give
it and make sure they give it on time, every time so that we can
minimize any risk," Mr. Hasbrouck said.

Nursing homes in Illinois provide care to more than 85,000 people
who on average take 10 prescription medicines per day, according
to the Health Care Council of Illinois.  "The stakes are high in
any healthcare setting, and human error exists in every
profession-in every aspect of society," said HCCI executive
director Pat Comstock.  "Nursing home professionals work hard
every day in an effort to eliminate it."

The Illinois Health Care Association is an advocacy group that
represents care facilities across the state.  IHCA president
John Vrba said the long term care sector has done a lot of work
trying to prevent medication errors.

"We don't want any medication error. One medication error is one
too many," Mr. Vrba said.

Mr. Vrba said underfunding in Medicaid does not help the cause,
but he said collaborative work with the state is needed to combat
medication errors.  He said continued education for nurses and
limited interruptions during medication passes will help limit
mistakes.

Nursing homes are also hiring admissions nurses with advanced
skill sets and using automated medication dispensers in their
efforts to cut down on medication errors.  Facility staff members
are also using TALL MAN letters, Mr. Vrba said, to differentiate
look-alike drug names. For example, noting predniSONE as opposed
to prednisoLONE.

"This is just another way that I believe all facilities throughout
the state or anybody passing a medication should utilize to
prevent an error," Mr. Vrba said.

The state urges families to research a facility's complaint and
citation history before placing a loved one in a care facility.

"Safety and quality of care is a collective responsibility,"
Hasbrouck said.  "The family has a responsibility to do their due
diligence."

Ms. Karney-Brown said once your loved one is in a nursing home, go
visit them often and show up unannounced.

"If something feels off, I think you should ask the question and
find out right away," Ms. Karney-Brown said.  "Don't just take yes
for an answer or no for an answer."
