3001 CASTOR: Exotic Dancers' FLSA Collective Action Can Proceed
---------------------------------------------------------------
Gina Passarella, writing for The Legal Intelligencer, reports that
exotic dancers who worked at a Philadelphia strip club that
substantially controlled the work environment and took cuts of
tips and lap dance proceeds are employees and can bring an FLSA
collective action, a federal judge has ruled.

U.S. District Judge Anita Brody of the Eastern District of
Pennsylvania ruled in Verma v. 3001 Castor that The Penthouse Club
improperly classified its strippers as independent contractors
instead of employees.  The ruling is a win for a proposed class of
strippers who claim they are entitled to minimum wage, overtime
compensation and all the gratuities they earned.

Judge Brody granted lead plaintiff Priya Verma conditional class
certification under the Fair Labor Standards Act, but denied her
request for class certification of state law claims under the
Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act and the Pennsylvania Wage Payment
and Collection Law.  Judge Brody ruled the class-action
requirement of predominance could not be proven at this early
stage of the case given each potential class member could have
varying damages.  But Judge Brody allowed for Ms. Verma to refile
a motion for class certification after the evidentiary record has
been developed.

Judge Brody's analysis of whether the strippers were employees or
independent contractors for purposes of the FLSA claims came down
largely on the control the club exerted over the dancers' work.
According to Judge Brody's opinion, the dancers at The Penthouse
don't earn any wages, receiving all of their compensation from the
club's customers.  And during certain shifts, some of the dancers
are required to pay the club a stage rental fee to work the shift.
The club's cut of the dancers' performances range from $10 of
every $30, four-minute private dance to $200 of every $500,
one-hour private dance, Judge Brody said.  The club sets the price
and duration of all private dances and the dancers are not allowed
to charge above that price, the judge said.

The dancers also have to give a portion of their tips to various
club staff, including the DJ, "house mom," "podium host," and
possibly the valet.  The dancers face fines for being late or
leaving early from a shift, using their cellphone, chewing gum,
entering or exiting the stage from anywhere other than the stairs
or failing to wear their hair down.  There is a salon on site and
dancers are instructed on their physical appearance, Judge Brody
said.

In order to avoid additional shift fees, dancers have to work at
least four shifts a week to avoid being considered freelancers.
While the dancers can leave the club at any time and work for
another club, they are under "continuous review" by club
management when working at The Penthouse, Judge Brody said.

The club argued that dancers set their own schedules and that if
dancers "hustle," they can make up to $1,600 a shift, according to
the opinion.

"Here, the dancers' control over their schedules is minimal
compared to all of the elements of the work that defendant
controlled," Judge Brody said.  "Based on the foregoing facts, the
factor of control weighs overwhelmingly in favor of a finding that
the dancers were employees, not independent contractors."

Control of the work was one of six factors Judge Brody analyzed in
going through the FLSA's economic realities test to determine
whether a worker is an employee or independent contractor.  All
but one of the factors weighed in favor of the dancers being
employees.

In looking at the dancers' opportunity for profit or loss
depending on managerial skill, Judge Brody found the club
substantially controlled the strippers' ability to make money
despite the club's argument that the strippers set their own
schedules.

Ms. Verma argued the club sets its hours, admission fees, which
stages will be open and what music will be played, sets the time
and price for private dances and controls the club's advertising
and food and alcohol expenditures.

In citing other courts, Judge Brody said the "hustling" argument
that the strippers can work harder and make more money has been
rejected by all courts to consider it.

"Dancers at the defendants' club risk the loss of the cost of
their costume, the stage rental fee, and the mandatory tip-outs in
exchange for the opportunity to earn several hundred dollars in a
six-hour shift," Judge Brody said.  "This is not the kind of
capital investment and risk-reward profile typical of someone in
business for herself.  Dancers cannot leverage their investment in
reoccurring stage fees and tip-outs to create an increasing return
on their investment."

Finding that the club invests much more in its operations than the
dancers invest in their costumes, shoes and hair, Judge Brody said
the third factor of the relative investments of the employer and
alleged employees weighed in favor of the dancers.

As to whether the services the dancers render require a special
skill, Brody found none of the skills evaluated in the club's
audition process rise to the level of a special skill.  The club
evaluates potential dancers based on whether she is a "fluid"
dancer, and on her appearance, social skills and hygiene. Brody
said other courts have found strippers don't exhibit a skill of
people in business for themselves.

Judge Brody further found for the dancers in that they are an
"integral" part of the club's business.

Judge Brody found that the lack of permanence in the working
relationship between the club and the dancer weighed in favor of
the club.  But in light of the fact that the five other factors
weighed in favor of the dancers, Judge Brody found they were
employees.  Judge Brody conditionally certified the FLSA
collective action for the recovery of unpaid wages and liquidated
damages.

Philadelphia is representing the defendants.

AMERICAN HOME: Arbitrator's Report on Goldstein Claim Upheld
------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Harvey Bartle, III, issued a memorandum in IN RE:
DIET DRUGS (PHENTERMINE/FENFLURAMINE/DEXFENFLURAMINE) PRODUCTS
LIABILITY LITIGATION, NOS. 99-20593, 2:15 MD 1203, (E.D. Penn.).
The ruling relates to: SHEILA BROWN, et al. v. AMERICAN HOME
PRODUCTS CORPORATION, particularly to claimant Lidya N. Goldstein
holding Claim No. 183/00 8009457.

A copy of the June 18, 2014 ruling is available at
http://is.gd/dRCWLufrom Leagle.com.

Ms. Goldstein, a class member under the Diet Drug Nationwide Class
Action Settlement Agreement with Wyeth, Inc., seeks benefits from
the AHP Settlement Trust. Under the Settlement Agreement, Matrix
Compensation Benefits are awarded to compensate claimants for
medical conditions caused by Pondimin(R) or ReduxTM (Diet Drugs).
In March 2012, the claimant submitted a Green Form seeking Matrix
Benefits. The attesting physician, Dr. Andres Tamayo, represented
in Part II of the Green Form that Ms. Goldstein had ingested the
Diet Drugs Pondimin (Fenfluramine) and Redux (Dexfenfluramine) for
at least 61 days. He further stated that Ms. Goldstein suffered
from severe aortic regurgitation, an ejection fraction of 50-60%,
and New York Heart Association Functional Class II Symptoms. Based
on Dr. Tamayo's conclusion that Ms. Goldstein had severe aortic
regurgitation, The Trust determined that the Green Form stated a
Matrix A, Severity Level I claim.

On March 22, 2012, the Trust issued a tentative denial and advised
Ms. Goldstein that the Seventh Amendment to the Settlement
Agreement barred her form pursuing the Severity Level I claim
asserted on the Green Form. There is no dispute that Ms. Goldstein
did not opt-out of the Seventh Amendment.  Ms. Goldstein contested
the denial and submitted a second Green Form, which she calls in
her papers an "Amended Green Form," as well as previously provided
medical records.

On May 14, 2012, the Trust issued a Final Determination denying
Ms. Goldstein's claim on the ground that she had not stated a
claim under the terms of the Settlement Agreement as amended by
the Seventh Amendment.  Ms. Goldstein appealed the Trust's
determination on May 25, 2012, and the matter was referred to
arbitration pursuant to Section VI.C.4(h) and (i) of the
Settlement Agreement. Both parties agreed to waive an arbitration
hearing. The arbitrator issued a Report and Award dated July 5,
2013, concluding that Ms. Goldstein "is not currently entitled to
Matrix Level Benefits because the conditions that are required for
recovery of Matrix Level III, IV or V Benefits, as described in
the Settlement Agreement and modified by the Seventh Amendment,
are not present in this claim."  The Claimant appealed to the
court as permitted under the Settlement Agreement.

Judge Bartle concluded that the Arbitrator's determination was not
clearly erroneous as to her findings of fact, and she did not err
as to her conclusions of law. The Report and Award of the
Arbitrator is, thus, affirmed.

FOREST LABS: Judge Remands 15 Birth Defects Suits to State Court
----------------------------------------------------------------
Charles Toutant, writing for New Jersey Law Journal, reports that
a federal judge in Camden, N.J., has remanded to state court
15 suits over birth defects in children born to mothers who took
Forest Laboratories' antidepressants Celexa and Lexapro for lack
of subject matter jurisdiction.

U.S. District Judge Robert Kugler rejected the defendants'
assertion that federal jurisdiction is proper because the cases
require the court to address questions about the Food and Drug
Administration's labeling of the drugs.  Judge Kugler also
rejected the defendants' claims that defendant Forest Research
Institute of Jersey City was fraudulently joined as a defendant.

The suits are part of a group of 20 that were filed in state
courts in New Jersey and removed to federal court by the
defendants.  The suits claim women who used the drug gave birth to
infants with problems ranging from heart defects to club feet.
Some of the infants died as a result of the abnormalities.
Besides Forest Research Institute, the suits name as defendants
two related entities, Forest Laboratories, based in New York, and
St. Louis-based Forest Pharmaceuticals.

The plaintiffs claim the company knew that its drugs increased the
risk of birth defects when used by pregnant women but did not warn
users, and promoted use of the drugs in women of child-bearing
years. The suits seek compensatory and punitive damages for
failure to warn and defective design under the New Jersey Product
Liability Act, as well as breach of contract and fraudulent
concealment.

The cases were consolidated under the caption In re: Forest
Research Institute Cases, 13-cv-1832.

Judge Kugler sent the cases back to the venues where they were
filed -- nine in Atlantic County and six in Hudson County.  The
ruling leaves five of the Forest cases still pending before
Judge Kugler -- four are part of a discovery dispute and in the
other, the court is awaiting additional information about the
plaintiffs' residency.

In his rejection of the defendants' argument for federal question
jurisdiction, Judge Kugler said the failure to warn and punitive
damages claims do not support a finding that the plaintiffs right
to relief under state law requires resolution of substantial
questions of federal law.

Judge Kugler also cited Sullivan v. Novartis Pharm. Corp., 575 F.
Supp 2d 640, a 2008 case from the District of New Jersey.  In that
case, the court held that a punitive damages claim for failure to
warn does not require the court to address whether the New Jersey
Products Liability Act incorporates federal law by requiring a
showing of fraud on the FDA.

The judge said the defendants improperly removed some of the cases
on diversity grounds before New Jersey-based Forest Research
Institute was served.  Citing Williams v. Daiichi Sankyo,
14-cv-863, another District of New Jersey case from April of this
year, Judge Kugler said that doing so "violates the intention of
the forum defendant rule by permitting gamesmanship."

The defendants said in court papers that about 182 suits have been
filed nationwide against Forest Laboratories and its affiliates
over birth defects in the children of users.  Most of those,
roughly 154, were filed in state court in Cole County, Missouri,
although none of that group included Forest Research Institute as
a defendant.  A small group of plaintiffs filed suits in St.
Louis, but when those cases were transferred to Cole County, they
were voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiffs and re-filed in New
Jersey, with Forest Research Institute as a defendant, the
plaintiffs said.

The defendants claimed Forest Research Institute, which
coordinates regulatory and research activities for parent company
Forest Laboratories, was fraudulently joined.  Forest Laboratories
holds the rights to make Celexa and Lexapro and Forest
Pharmaceuticals conducts marketing.  But Judge Kugler found there
is "a genuine controversy as to whether FRI can be held liable
under state law governing products liability" and that it was not
fraudulently joined.

Seeger Weiss of New York filed 13 of the New Jersey birth defects
cases, and another six were filed by Napoli Bern Ripka Shkolnik,
also of New York, while one was filed by Laura Feldman of Feldman
& Pinto in Philadelphia.

Plaintiffs counsel did not return calls for comment; nor did
defense lawyers from Ulmer & Berne in Cleveland and McCarter &
English in Newark.

Celexa and Lexapro are also the subjects of a separate group of
six cases that were consolidated in Boston by the Judicial Panel
on Multidistrict Litigation, which claims the company improperly
marketed the drug for use by minors.

GENERAL MOTORS: Plaintiff Lawyers Push for Punitive Damages
-----------------------------------------------------------
Amanda Bronstad, writing for The National Law Journal, reports
that plaintiffs lawyers are pushing for punitive damages and
inclusion of a broader scope of accidents in a planned
compensation fund for victims of General Motors Co.'s ignition-
switch defects.

During a June 18 congressional hearing over GM's recalls, chief
executive officer Mary Barra promised there would be no overall
limit on payouts and that people who suffered injuries or the loss
of loved ones predating its 2009 bankruptcy could be eligible.
She said GM would begin processing claims on Aug. 1.

"If the ignition switch was part of the issue, we want them in the
program," she said.

But she deferred specifics to the fund's administrator, claims
attorney Kenneth Feinberg, who was expected to announce the
details as early as June 30.  He has been meeting with plaintiffs
lawyers to gather their views.  Some of those lawyers, speaking on
condition of anonymity, said they were pleased with some details,
such as the possibility of including cases in which the driver was
at fault, even if he or she was intoxicated.  But they're pushing
for additional concessions.

"We know the direction he is leading us into, and we're not sure
we like all of it," said Jere Beasley, founding shareholder of
Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles in Montgomery, Ala.
Feinberg and GM spokesman Greg Martin declined to comment.

Mr. Feinberg is a seasoned administrator of victim funds,
including those for last year's Boston Marathon bombings, BP PLC's
Deepwater Horizon oil spill and the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.  GM
has recalled 2.6 million vehicles this year over the defect, which
could shut down engines, disabling power steering, airbags and
other functions.

Plaintiffs lawyers, many of whom remain embittered about
Mr. Feinberg's handling of BP's $20 billion fund for oil-spill
victims, argue that punitive damages are warranted, given that GM
knew of the defect for more than a decade.  Unlike the BP fund,
which focused primarily on business losses incurred in the months
after the spill, GM's fund involves injuries and deaths directly
caused by the defect.

In court, juries could award punitive damages.  "In fact, if a
jury hears what we know already -- and we don't know everything
yet -- they will punish General Motors severely, without any
doubt," Mr. Beasley said.

And unlike the Sept. 11 fund, the corporate wrongdoer is
bankrolling this fund to compensate for injuries and deaths, said
Julie Goldscheid, professor at the City University of New York
School of Law.  "A lot of these questions were answered by
Congress, so it took some of the discretion out of his hands for
better or worse," she said of the Sept. 11 fund, which taxpayers
paid for.  "He's in a different place now."

                         MORE THAN AIRBAGS

Several plaintiffs attorneys raised concerns about how
Mr. Feinberg might categorize the causes of accidents.  U.S. Rep.
Morgan Griffith, R-Va., was among several officials who asked
Barra during the hearing whether the claims administrator was
looking at "other parameters" than airbag failures.  His concern
stemmed, he said, from the 13 dead whom GM has acknowledged, all
of them killed in accidents in which airbags failed.

"How many deaths are there and accidents are there that aren't on
GM's list where the proximate cause of the accident was the
stalling itself, not just an increase in the injuries because air
bags didn't deploy?" Mr. Griffith said in an interview.  "I don't
think air bags are the only issues they have to deal with."

Then there are the additional recalls -- most recently on June 16
of 3.2 million vehicles -- which GM said involved an unrelated
ignition problem.

"It's clear from the comments from Mr. Feinberg that there's
nothing set in stone yet about even what vehicles will be included
in the scope of the plan," said Lance Cooper, founding partner of
The Cooper Firm in Marietta, Ga.

Also unclear is whether victims would abandon all legal claims by
participating in the fund -- although Ms. Barra told Congress that
the program would be "in lieu of going to court."

Regardless of such details, the fund might be the best choice for
some victims.  "I don't like to put somebody in a lawsuit -- in a
products case, which is extremely expensive to litigate -- for a
broken leg," Mr. Beasley said.  "In the compensation fund, a
broken leg would be compensated."


GENERAL NUTRITION: Judge Dismisses Class Action Over Supplements
----------------------------------------------------------------
Amaris Elliott-Engel, writing for The National Law Journal,
reports that a Maryland federal judge has dismissed a consolidated
class action alleging that General Nutrition Corp. and Rite Aid
Corp. made or sold dietary supplements falsely advertising that
they help joint health.

The judge gave leave for the plaintiffs to file an amended
complaint.

The complaint does not allege that reasonable experts in the field
would conclude, on the basis of existing scientific evidence, that
the main active ingredients would be ineffective in consumers who
do not suffer from arthritis, U.S. District Judge J. Frederick
Motz said.

The plaintiffs allege that the active ingredients in GNC's TriFlex
joint supplement line do not actually promote joint mobility and
flexibility, and that the active ingredients in a similar line of
products made by GNC and sold by Rite Aid do not help aging
joints.  The primary active ingredients in the products are
glucosamine hydrochloride and chondroitin sulfate.

"The mere existence of a 'battle of the experts' on the issue of
glucosamine and chondroitin's effect on nonarthritic consumers is
not sufficient to establish that defendants' advertisements
violate the state consumer protections statutes in this case,"
Judge Motz said.

According to the plaintiffs, 12 studies released during the past
decade show that glucosamine and chondroitin "perform not better
than a placebo in treating the symptoms of osteoarthritis of the
knee, hip, or lower back," the judge said.

But if there are experts who support what the defendants say in
their advertising, then the advertising is not false or
misleading, an unfair trade practice or otherwise a violation of
laws protecting consumers, Judge Motz said.

The various class actions allege violations of laws in California,
Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania
intended to protect consumers, bar deceptive practices and
guarantee express warranties.

Judge Motz suggested in a footnote that the U.S. Court of Appeals
for the Fourth Circuit might want to consider certifying as a
question to the relevant state supreme courts whether the
plaintiffs' complaint sufficiently states claims under their
respective consumer protection statutes.

ISLANDS RESTAURANTS: Denial of Bid to Compel Arbitration Affirmed
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In KATHRYN JACOBY, Plaintiff and Respondent, v. ISLANDS
RESTAURANTS, L.P., Defendant and Appellant, NO. B250886,
Islands Restaurants, appealed from a June 28, 2013 order denying
its motion to compel arbitration against Kathryn Jacoby. The
Defendant was originally sued by Jonathan Chambless who withdrew
from the case for personal reasons. The trial court denied the
motion to compel arbitration, finding defendant waived its right
to arbitrate.

"Because substantial evidence supports the trial court's waiver
determination finding, we affirm the denial of defendant's motion
to compel arbitration," ruled the Court of Appeals of California,
Second District, Division Five. "We need not discuss whether the
2011 arbitration agreement was an impermissible class
communication and thus unenforceable."

Plaintiff, Kathryn Jacoby, shall recover her costs on appeal from
defendant, Islands Restaurants, L.P., the Appeals Court held.

LAYNE CHRISTENSEN: Lessors, Royalty Owners Sue Subsidiaries
-----------------------------------------------------------
Layne Christensen Company subsidiaries are facing a suit filed on
behalf of lessors and royalty owners in the U.S. District Court
for the District of Kansas, according to the company's June 16,
2014, Form 10-Q filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission for the quarter ended April 30, 2014.

On April 17, 2013, an individual person filed a purported class
action suit against three of Layne's subsidiaries and two other
companies supposedly on behalf of all lessors and royalty owners
from 2004 to the present. The plantiff essentially alleges that
Layne and two other companies allocated the market for mineral
leasing rights and restrained trade in mineral leasing within the
state of Kansas. The plantiff's suit was initially filed in the
District Court of Wilson County, Kansas. On July 3, 2013, the case
was removed by a co-defendant to the U.S. District Court for the
District of Kansas. The case is still in the early stages of the
proceedings, but Layne believes it has meritorious legal position
and will continue to represent and defend Layne's interests
vigorously in this matter.

LOWE'S HOME: Accused of Illegal Discrimination and Termination
--------------------------------------------------------------
Kristin Marino v. Lowe's Home Centers LLC, Case No. 5:14-cv-12622-
JCO-MJH (E.D. Mich., July 2, 2014) arises from Lowe's alleged
illegal discrimination and termination of the Plaintiff based on
her gender causing her to suffer damages.

Ms. Marino alleges that the Defendant made a conscious and
deliberate decision to discriminate and terminate specific groups
of employees at their store in Howell, Michigan.  She contends
that she was terminated because out of 12 Project Services
Exterior's team members, she was the only female and had "nothing
in common" with her male supervisor.

Lowe's Home Centers, LLC is a North Carolina Corporation with
stores all around the country, including in Michigan.  The
Plaintiff worked at the Lowe's store in Howell, Michigan, which is

MARKIT LTD: Faces Antitrust Lawsuits Over Credit Default Swaps
--------------------------------------------------------------
Markit Ltd. is facing lawsuits filed in the US District Court for
the Southern District of New York, alleging violations of federal
and state antitrust laws in connection with credit default swaps,
according to the company's June 16, 2014, Form F-1 filing
(Amendment No. 3) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Since May 2013, Markit has been named as a defendant with the
Dealers and International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA)
in a number of putative class action lawsuits filed in U.S. courts
and arising out of allegations of violations of federal and state
antitrust laws in connection with credit default swaps. The named
plaintiffs in each case include pension funds, investment
management funds and other buy-side firms who conduct business
activities involving credit default swaps. All cases were filed
either in the U.S. District Courts for the Northern District of
Illinois or the Southern District of New York. On October 16,
2013, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation transferred
all cases to the Southern District of New York and on December 13,
2013, the court consolidated all such cases for pre-trial
purposes.

The primary allegations by plaintiffs are that the defendants
conspired to prevent competitors from offering execution and
clearing services for exchange-traded credit default swaps and
that the defendants conspired to fix and maintain credit default
swap bid/ask spreads in the OTC market above the spreads that
would have been realized with the development of exchange trading
of credit default swaps. The substance of plaintiffs' request for
relief seeks a permanent injunction foreclosing defendants from
continuing their alleged anticompetitive actions and trebled
damages in an unspecified amount, plus interest, attorneys' fees
and costs of suit.

NICHOLAS FINANCIAL: Shareholder Suit Over Prospect Deal Stayed
--------------------------------------------------------------
A court granted motions to stay a consolidated shareholder lawsuit
against Nicholas Financial, Inc. over its terminated Arrangement
Agreement with Prospect Capital Corporation and three of its
subsidiaries, according to Nicholas' June 16, 2014, Form 10-K
filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for the
fiscal year ended March 31, 2014.

The cases are Jason Simpson v. Nicholas Financial, Inc., et al.,
Case No. 13-011726-CI (Circuit Court, Pinellas County, Florida),
filed December 24, 2013; Gabriella Rago v. Nicholas Financial,
Inc., et al., Case No. 8:13-cv-03261-VMC-TGW (U.S. District Court,
Tampa, Florida), filed December 30, 2013; Matthew John Leonard v.
Nicholas Financial, Inc., et al., Case No. 13-011811-CI (Circuit
Court, Pinellas County, Florida), filed December 31, 2013;
Michelangelo Lombardo v. Nicholas Financial, Inc., et al., Case
No. 14-000095-CI (Circuit Court, Pinellas County, Florida), filed
January 3, 2014; Edward Opton v. Stephen Bragin, et al., Case No.
14-000139-CI (Circuit Court, Pinellas County, Florida), filed
January 6, 2014; Marvin Biver v. Nicholas Financial, Inc., et al.,
Case No. 8:14-cv-00250-VMC-TGW (U.S. District Court, Tampa,
Florida), filed February 3, 2014; and Richard Abrons v. Nicholas
Financial, Inc., et al., Case No. 8:14-cv-00583-VMC-TGW (U.S.
District Court, Tampa, Florida), filed March 10, 2014. These seven
substantially similar lawsuits were filed in connection with the
Arrangement contemplated in the Arrangement Agreement between the
Company, on the one hand, and Prospect Capital Corporation
("Prospect") and three Prospect subsidiaries (collectively, the
"Prospect Parties"), on the other hand. On April 30, 2014, the
Biver and the Abrons lawsuits were consolidated (hereafter, the
"Biver lawsuit").

On May 8, 2014, the Rago lawsuit was voluntarily dismissed,
without prejudice.

Each plaintiff to the five pending lawsuits purports to represent
a class of all of the Company's shareholders other than the
defendants and any person or entity related to or affiliated with
any defendant. Four of the lawsuits name as defendants the
Company, the Company's directors, and the Prospect Parties. The
fifth lawsuit names those same parties as defendants, with the
exception of two of the Prospect Parties. Each plaintiff alleges
that the consideration to be paid for the Company's Common Shares
is inadequate and that certain terms of the Arrangement Agreement
are contrary to the interests of the Company's public
shareholders. The plaintiffs in the Biver lawsuit make such
allegations only in the context of asserting claims against the
Company's directors and the Prospect Parties under Sections 14(a)
and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, predicated on
alleged misrepresentations or omissions in the Registration
Statement filed by Prospect on January 13, 2014. Each plaintiff,
except for the plaintiffs in the Biver lawsuit, asserts a breach
of fiduciary duty claim against the Company's directors, and an
aiding and abetting claim against the Company and/or certain of
the Prospect Parties. Each plaintiff seeks declaratory relief,
injunctive relief, other equitable relief and/or unspecified
damages with respect to the proposed transaction. Each plaintiff,
except for the plaintiffs in the Biver lawsuit, also seeks an
award of attorneys' fees. By agreement of the parties and orders
dated May 12, 2014 and May 22, 2014, the four state Circuit Court
actions have been stayed pending resolution of the Biver lawsuit.
On May 30, 2014, the court in the Biver lawsuit denied motions
filed by the Company, the Company's directors and the Prospect
Parties to dismiss the Biver lawsuit, or to abstain from
exercising jurisdiction. However, the court granted those parties'
motions to stay the Biver lawsuit, and ordered that the Biver
lawsuit is stayed for 120 days or pending resolution of the
Arrangement approval proceedings in the Supreme Court of British
Columbia, whichever occurs first.

NRG ENERGY: Bankruptcy Court Lifts Stay in Environmental Lawsuit
----------------------------------------------------------------
An environmental suit against Midwest Generation is now active,
according to NRG Energy, Inc.'s June 16, 2014, Form 8-K/A filing
(EX-99.1) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for the
quarter ended March 31, 2014.

In January 2012, two complaints were filed against Midwest
Generation in Illinois state court by residents living near the
Crawford and Fisk Stations on behalf of themselves and all others
similarly situated, each asserting claims of nuisance, negligence,
trespass, and strict liability. The plaintiffs seek to have their
suits certified as a class action and request injunctive relief,
as well as compensatory and punitive damages. The complaints are
similar to two complaints previously filed in the United States
District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, which were
dismissed in October 2011 for lack of federal jurisdiction.
Midwest Generation's motions to dismiss the cases were denied in
August 2012, following which the plaintiffs filed amended
complaints alleging substantially similar claims and requesting
similar relief. Midwest Generation has filed motions to dismiss
the amended complaints, and these complaints are stayed as a
result of the Chapter 11 Cases.

In October 2012, Midwest Generation and the Illinois Environmental
Protection Agency entered into Compliance Commitment Agreements
outlining specified environmental remediation measures and
groundwater monitoring activities to be undertaken at its
Powerton, Joliet, Crawford, Will County and Waukegan generating
stations. Midwest Generation has submitted certification to the
Illinois Environmental Protection Agency that all compliance
measures have been successfully completed. Also in October 2012,
several environmental groups filed a complaint before the Illinois
Pollution Control Board against Midwest Generation, alleging
violations of the Illinois groundwater standards through the
operation of coal ash disposal ponds at its Powerton, Joliet,
Waukegan and Will County generating stations. The complaint
requests the imposition of civil penalties, injunctive relief and
remediation. The matter was stayed as a result of the Chapter 11
Cases, although that stay was lifted in part in April 2013 so that
the proceedings could continue for the sole purpose of
adjudicating Midwest Generation's motion to dismiss the complaint.
In October 2013, the Pollution Control Board denied Midwest
Generation's motion to dismiss the complaint, and in December 2013
the Bankruptcy Court granted the environmental groups' motion to
lift the stay as to the remainder of the case.

In December 2012, the Sierra Club filed a complaint before the
Illinois Pollution Control Board against Midwest Generation,
alleging violations of sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions standards at
its Powerton, Joliet, Waukegan and Will County generating
stations. The complaint is based on alleged violations of the US
EPA National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) regulations for
1-hour SO2, which have not yet been incorporated into any specific
state implementation plan in Illinois. The complaint requests the
imposition of civil penalties, injunctive relief, and the
imposition of further reductions on SO2 emissions to offset past
emissions. The complaint was stayed as a result of the Chapter 11
Cases. In November 2013, the Bankruptcy Court granted the
plaintiffs' motion to lift the stay.

Extent of the product

CFIA reference number:    8986

The food recall warning issued on June 13, 2014 has been updated
to include additional product information.  This additional
information was identified during the Canadian Food Inspection
Agency's (CFIA) food safety investigation.

Advantage Health Matters is recalling Organic Traditions brand
Sprouted Chia & Flax Seed Powder from the marketplace due to
possible Salmonella contamination.  Consumers should not consume
the recalled products described below.

Check to see if you have recalled products in your home.  Recalled
products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they
were purchased.

Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled
but can still make you sick.  Young children, pregnant women, the
elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract
serious and sometimes deadly infections.  Healthy people may
experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting,
nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.  Long-term complications
may include severe arthritis.

The recall has been issued as part of a foodborne illness outbreak
investigation.  There has been a reported illness associated with
the consumption of these products.

The recall was triggered by findings by the CFIA during its
investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak.  The CFIA is
conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the
recall of other products.  If other high-risk products are
recalled the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food
Recall Warnings.

The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled products
from the marketplace.

PARAMOUNT: Recalls Trident Ultraviolet Sanitation Systems
---------------------------------------------------------
Starting date:            June 30, 2014
Posting date:             June 30, 2014
Type of communication:    Consumer Product Recall
Subcategory:              Tools and Electrical Products
Source of recall:         Health Canada
Issue:                    Fire Hazard
Audience:                 General Public
Identification number:    RA-40273

Affected products: Trident Series 2 Ultraviolet Water Treatment
System (sanitation systems for pools)

The recall notice involves all Trident Series 2 (UV II)
ultraviolet sanitation systems for pools manufactured between
Sept. 9, 2013 and Jan. 24, 2014.  The sanitation systems are a
gray tube that stands 81.2 cm (32 in) high by 27.9 cm (11 in.) in
diameter.  They are plumbed into the pool's water circulation
pipes and plugged in or hard-wired into an electrical system.
"Trident UV II "or "Series 2 Trident Ultraviolet Corporation
Sanitation System" is printed on a black label on the front of the
units.  In addition, a silver sticker on the units has the
following wording "Paramount Series 2 Ultraviolet Pool Sanitizer
System", "Trident Series 2 Ultraviolet Water Treatment System" or
Trident Ultra UV Series 2 Water Treatment System" and a date code
of 09/09/2013 (mm/dd/yy) or later.  Some date codes consist of a
series of letters which correspond to an alpha numeric code.  The
code is comprised of 6 alpha characters.  Each character
represents a number between 1 and 0.

Using this key, once the letters are converted to numerals, the
date of manufacture is determined.  The first two digits are the
month, the next two digits are the day, and the last two are the
year.  Thus, for example, a date code of NOCHCA=09/12/13.  Devices
with date codes between 09/09/13 and 01/24/14 are affected.  For
more details consult Paramount's website.

Electrical arcing can cause the units to catch fire, posing a fire
hazard.

The former owner, Trident Ultraviolet Corporation, received 14
reports in Canada and additional reports in the United States of
the sanitation systems melting and or catching fire, one burn
injury to a consumer's hand and about $24,800 in property damage
reported.

Health Canada has not received any reports of consumer incidents
or injuries related to the use of this product.

Approximately 24 of the units were sold in Canada and another 960
in the United States.

These devices were manufactured in United States and China between
the periods of Sept. 9, 2013 to Jan. 24, 2014 and are date stamped
as per the description section above.

Companies:

   Manufacturer     Paramount Leisure Industries d/b/a
                    Paramount Pool and Spa Systems
                    Chandler
                    Arizona
                    United States

Consumers should immediately unplug the units from the outlet, or
if hard wired, the power source should be disconnected or turned
off at the circuit breaker.  Contact Paramount for a free
replacement unit and free installation.  Paramount will have a
qualified technician remove the implicated unit and install the
replacement unit.

All products used to control micro-organisms (bacteria/algae) in
pool/spa waters require approval from Health Canada's Pest
Management Regulatory Agency in order to be manufactured, sold,
imported or used in Canada.  Only registered sanitizers (chlorine
and bromine) can be used in pools/spas and use must be in
ccordance with the registered product labels.

PJ'ZZZZ: Recalls Children's Bathrobes Due to Flame Hazard

Starting date:            June 26, 2014
Posting date:             June 26, 2014
Type of communication:    Consumer Product Recall
Subcategory:              Children's Products, Clothing and
                          Accessories
Source of recall:         Health Canada
Issue:                    Flammability Hazard
Audience:                 General Public
Identification number:    RA-40237

Affected products: Children's bathrobes

The recall involves PJ'zzzz polyester chenille children's
bathrobe.  The robes are made of 100% polyester and come in sizes
2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12.

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined
that these products do not meet the flammability requirements for
children's sleepwear under Canadian law.

Loose-fitting children's sleepwear can contact ignition sources
such as stove elements, candles, and matches more readily than
tight-fitting sleepwear, and once ignited will burn rapidly,
potentially resulting in severe burns to large areas of the
child's body.

Neither Health Canada nor PJ'zzzz has received any reports of
consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these
bathrobes.

For information on what makes safe sleepwear, visit the Healthy
Canadians children's sleepwear page.

Approximately 65 of the recalled products were sold in Canada by:
PJ'zzzz Bed Bath Sleep in British Columbia, Head shoulders knees
and toes in Alberta, Cardboard Castles in Ontario and Dreamland in
Ontario.

SAFEWAY INC: Reaches MoU to Settle Suit Over Albertson's Merger
---------------------------------------------------------------
A Memorandum of Understanding was reached to settle In Re Safeway
Inc. Stockholder Litigation, Consol. C.A. 9445-VCL, according to
the company's June 16, 2014, Form 8-K filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission.

On March 6, 2014, Safeway Inc. ("Safeway"), AB Acquisition LLC
("AB Acquisition"), Albertson's Holdings LLC ("Albertsons
Holdings"), a subsidiary of AB Acquisition, Albertson's LLC
("Albertson's LLC"), a subsidiary of Albertsons Holdings, and
Saturn Acquisition Merger Sub, Inc. ("Merger Sub" and together
with AB Acquisition, Albertsons Holdings and Albertson's LLC,
"Albertsons"), a subsidiary of Albertsons Holdings, entered into
an Agreement and Plan of Merger, which was subsequently amended on
April 7, 2014 pursuant to Amendment No. 1 ("Amendment No. 1") (as
amended, the "Merger Agreement"), pursuant to which the parties
agreed that, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth
in the Merger Agreement, AB Acquisition will acquire Safeway (the
"Merger").

Between March 13, 2014 and April 1, 2014, seven class action
lawsuits were filed in the Delaware Court of Chancery by alleged
stockholders of Safeway against Safeway, the individual directors
of Safeway, Cerberus Capital Management, L.P., and Albertsons,
which have been consolidated by order of the Court as In Re
Safeway Inc. Stockholder Litigation, Consol. C.A. 9445-VCL (the
"Delaware Action").

On June 13, 2014, Safeway entered into a memorandum of
understanding (the "Memorandum of Understanding") to settle the
Delaware Action.

The Memorandum of Understanding provides for, among other things,
(i) an amendment to the Merger Agreement to adjust certain
provisions of (A) the PDC Contingent Value Rights Agreement to be
entered into at the closing of the Merger, by and among AB
Acquisition, Safeway, a shareholder representative and a rights
agent (the "PDC CVR Agreement") and (B) the Casa Ley Contingent
Value Rights Agreement to be entered into at the closing of the
Merger, by and among AB Acquisition, Safeway, a shareholder
representative and a rights agent (the "Casa Ley CVR Agreement"),
(ii) an agreement by Safeway to accelerate the "Final Expiration
Date" of the Rights Agreement, dated September 17, 2013 (the
"Rights Agreement"), by and between Safeway and Computershare
Trust Company, N.A., as Rights Agent (the "Rights Agent"), and
(iii) certain changes to the proxy statement filed in connection
with the Merger, which such changes shall be captured in the
definitive proxy statement that Safeway intends to file with the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

While Safeway has entered into the Memorandum of Understanding,
the settlement will be subject to the approval of the Delaware
Chancery Court. Safeway and the Board of Directors of Safeway
believe the claims are entirely without merit, and, in the event
the settlement does not resolve them, intend to vigorously defend
these actions.

               Amendment to Merger Agreement

In connection with the Memorandum of Understanding, on June 13,
2014, Safeway, AB Acquisition, Albertsons Holdings, Albertson's
LLC and Merger Sub entered into an Amendment No. 2 (the "Merger
Agreement Amendment") to the Merger Agreement to (i) change the
terms of the PDC CVR Agreement such that, among other things, the
holders of the contingent value rights thereunder would, instead
of not receiving any value for any assets of the PDC Entities (as
defined in the PDC CVR Agreement) that remain unsold at the end of
the Sale Deadline (as defined in the PDC CVR Agreement), be
entitled to the fair market value of the unsold assets of the PDC
Entities, after the payment of certain fees, expenses and debt
repayments, and net of certain assumed taxes (as more fully set
forth in Merger Agreement Amendment) and (ii) change the terms of
the Casa Ley CVR Agreement to, among other things, (A) shorten the
Sale Deadline (as defined in the Casa Ley CVR Agreement) from four
years to three years and (B) provide that in the event that any
equity interests of Casa Ley, S.A. de C.V., a Mexico-based food
and general merchandise retailer ("Casa Ley"), owned by Safeway
remain unsold as of the Sale Deadline, the fair market value
determination to be made either mutually by Safeway and the
shareholder representative or by an independent investment banking
firm shall exclude any minority, liquidity or similar discount
regarding such equity interests relative to the value of Casa Ley
in its entirety.

Other than as expressly modified pursuant to the Merger Agreement
Amendment, the Merger Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to
the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC by Safeway on
March 10, 2014, and the Amendment No. 1, which was filed as
Exhibit 2.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC
by Safeway on April 8, 2014, each remain in full force and effect
as originally executed on March 6, 2014 and on April 7, 2014,
respectively.

Extent of the product
distribution:             Consumer
CFIA reference number:    8987

The food recall warning issued on June 18, 2014 has been updated
to include an additional product.  The additional product was
identified during the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA)
food safety investigation.

Sesameco is recalling Al Koura brand Tahina Extra from the
marketplace due to possible Salmonella contamination.  Consumers
should not consume the recalled product described below.

Check to see if you have recalled product in your home.  Recalled
product should be thrown out or returned to the store where it was
purchased.

Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled
but can still make you sick.  Young children, pregnant women, the
elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract
serious and sometimes deadly infections.  Healthy people may
experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting,
nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications may
include severe arthritis.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the
consumption of this product.

The recall was triggered by the company.  The CFIA is conducting a
food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other
products.  If other high-risk products are recalled the CFIA will
notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.


SHIRE LLC: 2nd Cir. Upholds Dismissal of LWD's Anti-Monopoly Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In LOUISIANA WHOLESALE DRUG COMPANY, INC., on behalf of itself and
all others similarly situated, VALUE DRUG COMPANY, on behalf of
itself and all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs-Appellants,
v. SHIRE LLC, SHIRE U.S., INC., Defendants-Appellees, which is
under In re ADDERALL XR ANTITRUST LITIGATION, DOCKET NO. 13-1232,
the plaintiffs are wholesale dealers in pharmaceutical products
including Adderall XR, a widely prescribed drug manufactured by
the defendants.  They brought this putative class action alleging
that the defendants violated the anti-monopolization provision of
the Sherman Act by breaching defendants' contracts to supply two
of their competitors -- who in turn supply the plaintiffs -- with
an unbranded version of the defendants' patented drug for resale
under the competitors' own labels. Although the contracts were
executed in connection with settlements of patent litigation, the
plaintiffs disclaim any reliance on that fact. They argue instead
that the contracts themselves gave rise to a "duty to deal" under
antitrust law.

The United States Court of Appeals, Second Circuit disagreed and,
therefore, affirmed the judgment of the United States District
Court for the Southern District of New York entered by Judge
Victor Marrero, dismissing the complaint.

The Second Circuit found that LWD failed to allege facts that
would place this case within [the] narrow exception to the "long
recognized right of [a] trader or manufacturer engaged in an
entirely private business, freely to exercise his own independent
discretion as to parties with whom he will deal."

TELEXFREE LLC: Class Seeks to Withdraw Reference to Dist. Court
---------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiffs Anthony Cellucci, Jamilly Lake and Gerivaldo Pacheco,
on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated ask to
withdraw the reference of their adversary proceeding/class action
against TelexFree from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Massachusetts to the U.S. District Court for the District of
Massachusetts.

The Plaintiffs contend that judicial efficiency favors withdrawal
of the reference because the Massachusetts Bankruptcy Court lacks
the authority to finally adjudicate the case, so any proceedings
in the Bankruptcy Court will necessarily require additional
proceedings in the District Court.

                     TelexFree's Bankruptcy

TelexFree Inc., TelexFree LLC and TelexFree Financial Inc. filed
for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Nevada, Case No. BK-S-14-12524-ABL, on
April 14, 2014.  On May 6, 2014, the Nevada Bankruptcy Court
transferred the bankruptcy action to the Massachusetts Bankruptcy
Court.

                          Class Action

On May 14, 2014, the Plaintiffs commenced the class action lawsuit
for violations of state and federal securities laws.

In their complaint, the Plaintiffs allege that TelexFree's offer
and sale of investment contracts constituted a pyramid-type Ponzi
scheme.  They add that to carry out their unlawful enterprise,
TelexFree and their officers and employees sold fraudulent
unregistered securities to the Plaintiffs and proposed class
members.

TEVA PHARMA: 6th Cir. Affirms Product Liability Suit Dismissal
--------------------------------------------------------------
Jan Wolfe, writing for The Litigation Daily, reports that an
appeals court on June 27 brought a quick end to claims that dozens
of drug companies ignored the risks of a painkiller pulled from
the market in 2010.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit affirmed the
dismissal of 99 percent of the product liability cases brought by
patients who took generic versions of propoxyphene, commonly known
under the brand names Darvon and Darvocet.  The court held that
Teva Pharmaceuticals Inc. and other companies that sold generic
propoxyphene can't be held liable because the claims against them
are preempted by federal law.  The panel also dismissed Eli Lilly
and Co. and other branded drug companies from the case, reasoning
that they can't be targeted over generic drugs that they didn't
produce.

Jay Lefkowitz of Kirkland & Ellis, who represents Teva, handled
the Sixth Circuit appeal for the generic defendants.  Eli Lilly
counsel Hank Bullock -- hbullock@mayerbrown.com -- of Mayer Brown
argued for the brand-name defendants.  Louis Bograd of the Center
for Constitutional Litigation made the case for the plaintiffs.

First approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1957,
propoxyphene is an opioid used to treat to moderate pain.  Eli
Lilly originally sold the drug, but another defendant, Xanodyne
Pharmaceuticals Inc., acquired the rights to it in 2005.  Several
generic drug companies also sold the painkiller once its patent
protection ended. The FDA pulled the drug from the market in 2010,
finding its benefits were outweighed by cardiac risks.

In the wake of the FDA announcement, plaintiffs lawyers filed
nearly 100 separate lawsuits on behalf of individuals allegedly
harmed by using generic propoxyphene.  The plaintiffs alleged
various tort causes of action, including failure to warn and
breach of warranty.  The suits were consolidated into
multidistrict litigation before U.S. District Judge Danny Reeves
in Lexington, Ky.

Timing wasn't on the side of the plaintiffs. In 2011, the U.S.
Supreme Court ruled in Pliva v. Mensing that state-law failure to
warn claims are preempted by the federal drug misbranding statute,
the Food Drug & Cosmetic Act.  In a follow-up case two years
later, Mutual Pharmaceutical v. Bartlett, the high court ruled
that state-law design defect claims are also preempted by the FCA.
Kirkland's Lefkowitz delivered the winning Supreme Court arguments
in both Mensing and Bartlett.

Citing Mensing, Judge Reeves dismissed all 91 lawsuits involving
generic propoxyphene during the pleading stage -- a huge win for
the defendants.  And the judge tossed claims that Eli Lilly and
Xanodyne are liable because they designed the drug (so-called
innovator liablity), ruling that it doesn't make sense to hold
brand-name drug companies liable for harm caused by generic
versions of their drug that they didn't produce.

The Sixth Circuit overwhelming agreed with Judge Reeves in the
June 27 opinion.  It held that while the plaintiffs pleaded
various tort claims in the cases, at bottom they were alleging a
design defect, which is exactly the kind of claim Mensing and
Bartlett preempt.

Turning to innovator liability, the court held that it's been
rejected in the overwhelming majority of states.  The panel did
revive one case, however, ruling that a single plaintiff
adequately pleaded that Eli Lilly, rather than a generic company,
may have sold the propoxyphene taken by her deceased husband.

TOSHIBA AMERICA: Court Rules on Disclosure Rift in False Ad Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
STACEY PIERCE-NUNES, Plaintiff(s), v. TOSHIBA AMERICA INFORMATION
SYSTEMS, INC., Defendant, NO. C 14-0796 JST (LB), (N.D. Cal.), is
a putative class action case by a New York plaintiff on behalf of
a New York class alleging false advertising in violation of New
York state law by Defendant Toshiba America Information Systems,
Inc., about its "LED TVs," which were marketed as superior to LCD
TVs. The parties stipulated to an extension of time for Toshiba to
answer the complaint, and Toshiba filed a motion to transfer the
action either to the Central District of California, where Toshiba
is headquartered, or to the Southern District of New York, which
has a nexus to the class, the Plaintiff, and the sale that gave
rise to the lawsuit. The parties agreed to engage in discovery
that is relevant to the motion to transfer and to file a letter
brief if they could not work things out themselves. The discovery
at issue is about certain representations made by Scott Ramirez,
Toshiba's Vice President of Product Marketing and Development for
Visual Products, in support of the motion to transfer. The parties
disagree about whether a short deposition about limited issues is
enough (which is Toshiba's position), or whether Toshiba must
respond to broader interrogatories before the deposition (which is
Plaintiff's position).

According to Toshiba's counsel, Mr. Ramirez is the person in
charge of marketing and the person with knowledge of the genesis
of the alleged false advertising in the form of the
representations about "LED TV." Toshiba also said that it would
try to produce an organizational chart of employees involved in
marketing and sales. Plaintiffs pointed out that its
interrogatories were geared to an efficient and short deposition
of perhaps only an hour.

Given the assertions in Mr. Ramirez's declaration, his position at
Toshiba America, and Toshiba's representations, and on this
record, Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler concluded that the
deposition of Mr. Ramirez is enough to address the issues in the
transfer motion. The court gave Plaintiffs a half-day to depose
Mr. Ramirez.

Subcategory:              Children's Products
Source of recall:         Health Canada
Issue:                    Fall Hazard
Audience:                 General Public
Identification number:    RA-40267

Affected products: Chimparoo Versatile cardi-wraps

The recall involves long-sleeved and short-sleeved cardi-wraps.
The cardi-wrap is made from organic 95% cotton and 5% spandex
jersey, and can be worn skin-to-skin or over clothing in many
ways.  The product is available in four different colours (grey,
dark red, natural, black); however, only the black cardi-wrap is
affected by this recall.  The cardi-wrap turns into a "hands-free"
baby carrier when a cummerbund is worn over it.

The black fabric used to manufacture the cardi-wraps exhibits
premature deterioration.  It has been observed that after two
years of use, the fabric may tear easily when moderate pressure is
applied with a sharp object, making the product less safe for
skin-to-skin use with a baby.  The child could fall if the
supporting fabric tears.

Neither VIJA design INC. nor Health Canada has received any
reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of
these products in Canada.

Approximately 200 units of the recalled product were sold at
various stores across Canada.

* Democrat Mary Burke Vows to Repeal Wisconsin Asbestos Law
-----------------------------------------------------------
Scott Bauer, writing for The Associated Press, reports that
Democrat Mary Burke is promising that if she's elected as
Wisconsin governor she will work to repeal a law signed by
Gov. Scott Walker and opposed by veterans that makes it more
difficult for victims of asbestos exposure to receive damages.

Mr. Walker, a Republican seeking a second term, has made his
record on veterans' issues a focus of his re-election campaign.
But he has taken heat for signing the asbestos bill in March
despite opposition from three veterans' groups representing more
than 100,000 members.

Mr. Walker also angered some veterans by repealing a 2009 law that
had expanded the rights of veterans and other protected groups to
file state employment discrimination lawsuits seeking damages.

In a statement from her campaign released on July 3, Ms. Burke
said she would work to reinstate that law as well as repeal the
asbestos law.

Mr. Walker's campaign said on July 7 in response that the governor
"has a strong record of supporting Wisconsin veterans and their
families."

Mr. Walker, who declared 2012 the "year of the veteran," has
bolstered staff at veterans' homes, invested millions to help
shore up a veterans' trust fund and offered incentives to help
ex-military members find a job or start a business.  Mr. Walker
also signed into law a bill allowing veterans to use military
education, training and other experiences to fulfill requirements
for professional credentials.

"As governor, my priority has been putting the needs of
Wisconsin's veterans ahead of politics and petty partisan
differences," Mr. Walker said on his website.

Ms. Burke, a former state Commerce secretary and Trek Bicycle
Corp. executive, also announced the formation of a statewide group
of veterans and military family members who will be working to get
her elected and with whom she will be consulting throughout her
campaign.

Ms. Burke said if elected she would restore or add a number of
committees to work with the Wisconsin Department of Veterans
Affairs, including ones focused on increasing access to and
improving programs that help veterans get jobs and an education,
and to ensure veteran input about operation of the state's
veterans homes.

Ms. Burke also said she would require that the department
establish a federal liaison office to work with the Federal Aid
Management Service, create a university services program
ombudsman, and re-establish a council to provide veteran input on
the operations of the state veterans' homes.
