ACACIA RESEARCH: Sued Over Unreasonable Litigation Tactics
----------------------------------------------------------
Scott Graham, writing for The Recorder, reports that wielding the
U.S. Supreme Court's new case on fee shifting, some 55 finance and
technology companies are taking aim at one of the nation's largest
nonpracticing entities, accusing it of causing expensive and
unnecessary multidistrict litigation.

A squadron of corporate defendants led by Twitter Inc. and Yahoo
Inc. are moving for fees against companies owned by Acacia
Research Corp. and cloud services provider j2 Global
Communications, saying the two concocted "a calculated, deceitful
plan" to divvy up a family of patents and then assert conflicting
interpretations of them in different cases.

The motion appears to face an uphill battle, as U.S. District
Judge Joan Lefkow rejected a request for Rule 11 sanctions last
fall, saying Acacia and j2's conduct was "troubling" but that
there was no evidence of bad faith.  But bad faith is no longer a
prerequisite for a finding of "exceptional case" warranting
attorney fees since the court decided Octane Fitness v. ICON
Health & Fitness in April.  Instead, an exceptional case is
"simply one that stands out from others" with respect to its
substantive strength or unreasonable litigation tactics, according
to the high court.

The defendants say In re Unified Messaging Solutions Patent
Litigation meets that standard.  They argue that j2 originally
sued companies that convert faxes to online documents, arguing
that its patent claims were limited to voice, fax and data
transfers.  J2 and its subsidiary, AMT, then worked out a complex
arrangement that gave Acacia subsidiary Unified Messaging
Solutions the right to sue others over email services while j2 and
AMT retained ownership rights to the patents.

The idea was "to divide enforcement of the patent family such that
j2 and AMT could continue to press a narrow interpretation of the
patents against fax-to-web providers in California, while [Unified
Messaging Solutions and Acacia] pursued a broader interpretation
against scores of other defendants in other courts," say the
defendants, in a brief signed by liaison counsel Yar Chaikovsky of
McDermott Will & Emery and 27 other lawyers for 26 different law
firms.

The defendants have had success before Judge Lefkow, of the
Northern District of Illinois, so far.  Last fall the judge ruled
that Unified Messaging Solutions, or UMS, had no standing to sue
on its own, causing AMT to join the litigation.  But, she ruled,
"at this time, the facts do not indicate that AMT and UMS
impermissibly divided ownership of the patents."

A few months later Judge Lefkow issued a claim construction ruling
favorable to the defendants and AMT and UMS stipulated to
noninfringement for purposes of bringing an appeal.  Judge Lefkow
ruled that UMS did not appear to be taking different positions
from j2.  Still, the defendants say her order underscores the
meritless arguments they've made all along.

Edward Nelson -- enelson@nbclaw.net -- of Fort Worth-based Nelson
Bumgardner Casto, who represents UMS, said his client will respond
to the fee motion early next month and anticipates filing its
opening appellate brief on the claim construction ruling in
September.

Stanford law professor Mark Lemley said the court's ruling in
Octane Fitness could make fee awards more likely when numerous
defendants are sued unsuccessfully in multidistrict litigation.
But figuring out how much to award, an issue the parties haven't
reached yet in the UMS case, could be a sticky issue.

"I can imagine a judge being willing to award fees," he said, "but
being unwilling to pay 25 different defendants to do the same work
with 25 different law firms, saying, in effect, 'You should have
been more efficient in defending this case by hiring counsel
jointly."


AKSHAR DELI: Suit Seeks to Recover OT & Spread-of-Hours Premiums
----------------------------------------------------------------
Danish Shakya v. Akshar Deli & Grocery Inc. d/b/a Jaja Deli,
Govind Patel (or "Gary Patel"), Kalpesh Patel, So Young Lee, Hyung
Sok Yu (or "John Yu"), Kyan Yap and John Does #1-10, jointly and

APPLEBEE'S INT'L: Faces Call Recording Class Action in California
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Natalie Rodriguez, Andrew Scurria and Allison Grande, writing for
Law360, report that restaurant chain Applebee's International Inc.
has been hit with a proposed class action -- removed to California
federal court on July 18 -- that alleges the company failed to
notify customers that all customer calls are recorded.

Plaintiff Joneeta Byrd claims that Applebee's fails to give notice
that calls are recorded, in violation of California privacy law.
With the suit looking to represent a class that "is at least in
the tens of thousands" and potential statutory damages exceeding
the $5 million mark, Applebee's is having the case removed to
California federal court under the Class Action Fairness Act,
court documents show.  Ms. Byrd alleges that during a November
2013 call made from her wireless phone to an Applebee's customer
service line, she was not told the call was being recorded and had
an expectation of privacy.

"Defendant did not, at any point during the telephone conversation
with defendant's customer service representative, advise plaintiff
that the call was being recorded.  Plaintiff did not give either
express or implied consent to the recording," according to the
original complaint, which was filed in the Superior Court of the
State of California for the County of San Diego.

The suit claims a violation of California Penal Code Section
632.7, which prohibits eavesdropping on calls made from cellphones
and cordless phones regardless of whether the communications were
initiated with a reasonable expectation that they would remain
private.  It is the same provision that was invoked in recently
reinstating a class action that accused Hilton Worldwide Inc. of
also violating California privacy law by recording incoming
customer service phone calls.

The Ninth Circuit revived the case in March, knocking a district
court for glossing over the added legal protection calls from
cellphones are afforded over those from land lines.  That district
court, however, again dismissed the case on July 15, ruling that
state eavesdropping law does not apply to service-observing
monitoring activities or to recordings made by call participants.

Ms. Byrd is represented by Scott J. Ferrell --
sferrell@trialnewport.com -- Richard H. Hikida --
rhikida@trialnewport.com -- David W. Reid --
dreid@trialnewport.com -- and Victoria C. Knowles --
vknowles@trialnewport.com -- of Newport Trial Group.

Applebee's is represented by Joel D. Siegel and Paul M. Kakuske of
Dentons US LLP.

The suit is Joneeta Byrd v. Applebee's International Inc., case
number 3:14-cv-01697, filed in the U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of California.

BENDIGO & ADELAIDE: Settles Investor Class Action
-------------------------------------------------
The Australian Associated Press reports that a class action
related to loans provided to investors hit by the billion dollar
collapse of agribusiness Great Southern has been settled.  The
agricultural projects manager, which raised AUD1.8 billion and
managed 45 investment schemes, collapsed in 2009.  Investors had
been seeking to have loans issued by Bendigo and Adelaide Bank
deemed void, and for all money issued by the bank to be repaid to
borrowers.

A trial concluded in October 2013 and a judgment was due to be
handed down on July 25.

But Bendigo and Adelaide Bank said on July 23 a settlement had
been reached in which borrowers have admitted their loans are
valid and enforceable.  The bank has agreed to waive interest
relating to overdue amounts on those loans.

This will not impact the financial accounts of the bank, it said.
Managing director Mike Hirst said he was pleased with the outcome.

"We have always maintained that the bank's conduct was at all
times appropriate and the bank is entitled to be repaid its loans
to Great Southern borrowers," he said.

BRICAN AMERICA: Court Issues Ruling in Equipment Lease Litigation
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In IN RE: Brican America LLC, Equipment Lease Litigation, CASE NO.
10-MD-02183-PAS, (S.D. Fla.), plaintiffs are dentists and
optometrists who bought multimedia systems designed for their
waiting rooms (Exhibeos) and financed these purchases through
"financing leases" now held by Defendants NCMIC Finance
Corporation and PSFS 3 Corporation. The Exhibeo vendor, initially
Brican America, Inc. and later Brican America, LLC, sold these
systems as being effectively free, promising in a "Marketing
Agreement" executed with each purchase that a "medspa" named Viso
Lasik would buy enough advertising on the Exhibeos to offset
Plaintiffs' lease payments and that the vendor would buy back the
leases if the advertising payments stopped.  When the advertising
payments stopped, NCMIC expected Plaintiffs to continue making
their lease payments and the Plaintiffs refused, asserting fraud.
Now Plaintiffs and NCMIC are fighting over, essentially, who
should have seen this coming.

In this litigation, Plaintiffs sought a declaratory judgment
finding the leases unenforceable on the basis of various legal
theories that kept changing as Plaintiffs tried to find one that
would fit. Finally, after two rounds of summary judgment, the
Court held a bench trial on the legal theory that survived: that
certain of these leases were fraudulently induced, and that NCMIC,
who obtained them via assignment, is not a holder in due course
and so cannot enforce them.

In his findings of fact and conclusions of law dated July 18,
2014, a copy of which is available at http://is.gd/nEArGqfrom
Leagle.com, District Judge Patricia A. Seitz held the Plaintiffs
have established that Brican fraudulently induced the Plaintiffs
who signed versions 4, 5, 7, and 8 of the Marketing Agreement into
signing the one-column Financing Agreements that Brican then
assigned to NCMIC. In these Marketing Agreements, Brican promised
to buy back the Exhibeo leases if Viso Lasik stopped making
advertising payments. But Brican knew it could not keep this
promise because its financial wherewithal to do so was built on a
house of cards: its sole revenue source was $24,000 for each
Exhibeo sale, but each sale also came with a $29,000 obligation to
pay advertising fees. Brican represented that these advertising
fees would come from Viso Lasik, but whatever happened with Viso
Lasik, the obligation to buy back the leases was Brican's.
Moreover, Judge Seitz continued, Brican's portrayal of its
relationship with Viso Lasik was misleading and incomplete because
it failed to include the fact that its "strategic alliance" with
Viso Lasik consisted of (1) Brican using Plaintiffs'
creditworthiness (2) to get cash infusions from NCMIC (3) that
Brican used to make loans to Viso Lasik (4) so that Viso Lasik
could get off the ground and make the promised advertising
payments.

The Court further found that NCMIC is not entitled to the
protections of a holder in due course for the one-column Financing
Agreements because, by October 3, 2008, NCMIC knew that (1) Brican
was marketing the Exhibeos as being effectively free and (2)
Brican promised to buy back customers' leases if Viso Lasik
stopped making the advertising payments that made them "free."
Despite this knowledge, NCMIC continued to fund Brican's sales
without inquiring into Brican's use of Marketing Agreements or
into the financial relationship between Brican and Viso Lasik.
Accordingly, the Court will enter judgment in favor of those
Plaintiffs who signed a one-column Financing Agreement and version
4, 5, 7, or 8 of the Marketing Agreement, concluded Judge Seitz.

CHINA MINMETALS: Judge Tosses Magnesite Price-Fixing Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Charles Toutant, writing for New Jersey Law Journal, reports that
a $58 million antitrust suit, claiming Chinese companies conspired
to fix prices for the mineral magnesite, was dismissed July 24 by
a Newark federal judge who found that the plaintiffs lacked
statutory standing to sue.

Brought on behalf of U.S. purchasers of magnesite, the suit claims
that 16 Chinese producers of the product formed cartels to
restrain competition and raise prices, in violation of the Sherman
Antitrust Act.

The named plaintiffs are two U.S. companies that purchase
magnesite -- Animal Science Products Inc., of Nacogdoches, Texas,
and Resco Products, of Pittsburgh, Pa. Animal Science is the
representative for a class of indirect purchasers and Resco is the
representative for a class of direct purchasers.  The suit seeks
injunctive relief for the indirect purchasers and monetary damages
for the direct purchasers.

Nine of the 16 Chinese companies named as defendants did not
answer the complaint and are not participating.

U.S. District Judge Kevin McNulty of the District of New Jersey
granted a motion by two of the defendants to dismiss the case
after he undertook an analysis sua sponte of the plaintiffs'
standing to bring the antitrust action.

Judge McNulty said the plaintiffs have pleaded the minimum
prerequisites of a Sherman Act violation by alleging that a cartel
fixed prices. But the requirement that a plaintiff be a direct
purchaser is a "bright-line rule" of antitrust standing, he said.
He said Resco, which represents a class of direct purchasers, buys
magnesite through brokers that are not parties to the case and
therefore lacks standing.

Judge McNulty cited the U.S. Supreme Court's 1977 ruling in
Illinois Brick v. Illinois, which "limits antitrust actions to
suits brought by parties that are the direct purchasers of the
product."

Resco said it purchases magnesite mainly through brokers, although
it made a single direct purchase in 2004 and in 2006 it purchased
a company, Worldwide Refractories, that also made a direct
purchase of magnesite in 2004.

One of its brokers, Possehl Inc., of Park Ridge, N.J., assigned to
Resco its rights and interests in causes of action relating to
magnesite brokered by Possehl and delivered to Resco.  But Possehl
did not establish that it was a direct purchaser of magnesite,
Judge McNulty said.

Resco's claims about its single direct purchase, the direct
purchase by Worldwide and the assignment by Possehl are not
sufficient "to raise a right to relief above the speculative
level," Judge McNulty said.

Resco sought to take advantage of the "co-conspirator exception"
to the direct purchaser rule, which allows an indirect purchaser
to sue if it can show the direct purchaser, or middleman, has
entered into a price-fixing conspiracy with the manufacturer.
Judge McNulty said Resco did not claim the defendants formed a
"hub and spoke" conspiracy, in which the co-conspirators conspire
with the named defendants.  Rather, Resco alleged only that each
defendant colluded with its co-conspirators to restrain
competition.

Resco's claims about its single direct purchase, the direct
purchase by Worldwide and the assignment by Possehl are not
sufficient "to raise a right to relief above the speculative
level," Judge McNulty said.

The ruling marks the second time a district court judge has
dismissed the case since it was filed in 2005.

In 2010, U.S. District Judge Garrett Brown Jr. found the court
lacked jurisdiction under the Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements
Act to hear the case.  The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third
Circuit reinstated the case in 2011, finding that the FTAIA
imposed substantial limits on antitrust claims but did not raise a
jurisdictional bar.

An estimated 500,000 metric tons of magnesite is imported into the
United States from China each year, the suit says.  The complaint
says China has 45 percent of the world's production of magnesite.
The defendants have been able to raise the price of magnesite
despite not having 100 percent of the market because they have
lower costs than competitors and because China undervalues the
yuan, making its exports to the United States cheaper than exports
from other nations, the suit claims.

Magnesite, a naturally occurring carbonate form of magnesium, is
used to line metallurgical or refractory furnaces, among other
uses, the suit says.

According to the plaintiffs, after the price of magnesite declined
in 1999, a group of 13 Chinese producers of the mineral formed the
Jiyuan Magnesite Group, which established uniform prices for the
mineral.  Other Chinese magnesite producers formed a similar
organization, Huaxia Magnesite Products Group, around the same
time.  As a result, the price of magnesite imported from China
rose from $104 per metric ton in 1999 to $158 per metric ton in
2000.

CITIBANK NA: "Campbell" Case Stayed Pending Ruling in "Casey"
-------------------------------------------------------------
In James M. Campbell, et al., Plaintiffs v. Citibank, NA, et al.,
Defendants, CASE NO. 3:13-CV-02675, (N.D. Ohio), Citibank seek an
order staying the claims of the Campbells related to lender force-
placed insurance. Defendants assert these claims are covered by a
nationwide class action in the Northern District of New York,
where the district judge recently expressed his preliminary
approval of a proposed settlement agreement. The Campbells object
to the Defendants' request for a stay on the grounds that
Defendants have failed to carry their burden of proof and a stay
would prejudice their rights.

"[A]ll discovery and proceedings in this action will be stayed
until further order of this Court," ruled District Judge Jeffrey
J. Helmick in a memorandum opinion and order dated July 8, 2014, a
copy of which is available at http://is.gd/kiA5Hgfrom Leagle.com.

"I also conclude that ruling on Defendants' motion to dismiss,
would be improper at this time," Judge Helmick added.  "Therefore,
the motion to dismiss is denied, with leave to refile after Judge
Hurd rules on the parties' motion for final approval of the
[settlement in Casey et al. v. Citibank, N.A., et al.] or the
Campbells opt-out of the nationwide class."

COINABUL LLC: Class Suit Challenges Misuse of Customers' Property
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Yazan Hussein, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated v. Coinabul, LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company,
and Jason Shore, an individual, Case No. 1:14-cv-05735 (N.D. Ill.,
July 25, 2014) challenges the Defendants' alleged intentional and
systematic misuse and misappropriation of their customers'
property.

The Defendants run an online marketplace called "Coinabul" where
consumers may exchange "bitcoins" -- a new form of digital
currency -- for physical denominations of silver or gold.

Unfortunately, the Plaintiff alleges, rather than delivering the
metals promised to their customers, the Defendants chose to
capitalize on the lack of effective regulatory oversight in this
burgeoning industry, and instead defrauded their customers out of
millions of dollars worth of bitcoins.  Bitcoin is a form of
digital currency that was created in early 2009.  Unlike
traditional money, bitcoins are not issued by a government and are
not regulated by any central authority.

Coinabul, LLC is a Wyoming limited liability company headquartered
in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  Coinabul is believed to be actually
operated from the state of California, but is not registered to do
business there.  Jason Shore is a resident of the state of
California.  He is the Chief Executive Officer of Coinabul.

DAIRY FARMERS: Settles Anti-Trust Class Action for $50 Million
--------------------------------------------------------------
Denise Coffey, writing for Reminder News, reports that Dairy
Farmers of America agreed to settle a class action lawsuit with
farmers in the northeastern U.S.  While admitting no wrong-doing,
DFA agreed to pay $50 million in penalties for what critics say
were anti-trust violations.  The lawsuit charged the DFA, Dairy
Marketing Services and Dean Foods with monopolizing the raw milk
market, buying processing plants and forcing farmers to join their
coops.  DFA denied those allegations, but said the costs to
continue to defend themselves were too great.

DFA is a national milk marketing cooperative with 16,000 members
and 9,000 farms in 48 states.  Net sales in 2010 were $9.8
billion.

The $50 million settlement is a slap on the wrist, according to
dairy farmer Paul Miller.  "What's $50 million when you're a
multi-billion dollar company?" he said.  "You pay the fine and you
move on."  He'll likely see a portion of that penalty if the court
approves the settlement.  Three years ago he received a similar
payment from Dean Foods as part of the same class action lawsuit.
Dean paid $30 million to more than 9,000 farmers, but admitted no
wrong-doing.

"I've always thought competition was good," Mr. Miller said.
"Particularly for the little guy."


DEAN'S WESTSIDE: Fails to Pay Overtime, Construction Worker Says
----------------------------------------------------------------
Julio Vera v. Dean's Westside Contracting Corporation, Dean
Messina, individually, Case No. 1:14-cv-04495 (E.D.N.Y., July 25,
2014) alleges that the Defendants failed to pay the Plaintiff and
others similarly situated for some of their hours worked in excess
of 40 hours per work week at a time and a half rate of pay, in
direct violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act and applicable
state laws of the state of New York.

Mr. Vera worked for the Defendants as a non-exempt construction
worker in New York from June 2013 through June 2014.

Dean's Westside Contracting Corporation is a New York corporation.
Dean Messina is an owner, partner, officer or manager of Dean's

ENDO PHARMACEUTICALS: Siskinds Launches Delatestryl Class Action
----------------------------------------------------------------
The law firm Siskinds LLP on July 22 disclosed that it has
launched a class action regarding the testosterone therapy drug
Delatestryl.

Testosterone therapy (or testosterone replacement therapy) is
often used to treat low testosterone levels, also known as "low T"
or hypogonadism, in men.  Prescription testosterone injections,
gels, patches, buccal systems and pills are all forms of
testosterone therapy.

The Statement of Claim alleges that the defendants failed to
adequately warn patients and physicians that use of testosterone
therapy increases the risk of serious cardiovascular side effects,
including heart attack, stroke, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary
embolism and death.

Linda Visser -- linda.visser@siskinds.com -- a lawyer with
Siskinds LLP, states: "In commencing the class action, Siskinds is
seeking recovery for Canadians who took testosterone therapy and
were not warned of the increased risk of suffering serious
cardiovascular side effects, including heart attack, stroke, deep
vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and death."  She further
states: "As a matter of safety, patients and their health care
providers need to be informed of the risks associated with using a
particular pharmaceutical product."

Canadians who have experienced adverse events after using any form
of testosterone therapy are encouraged to visit

FORD MOTOR: Faces Class Action in D.C. Over Music Royalties
-----------------------------------------------------------
Andrew Ramonas, writing for Legal Times, reports that a music
industry group on July 25 sued Ford Motor Co., General Motors Co.
and two electronics companies, demanding that the businesses pay
artists and record labels royalties allegedly owed under U.S.
copyright law.

In a 21-page class action complaint filed in the U.S. District
Court for the District Columbia, the Alliance of Artists and
Recording Companies claims Ford and GM, along with Clarion Corp.
of America and DENSO International America Inc., failed to abide
by the Audio Home Recording Act of 1992.  The law requires
businesses that manufacture and sell certain audio recording
electronics to pay music royalties.

At issue are Ford's "Jukebox" from Clarion and GM's "Hard Drive
Device" from DENSO.  Both of the devices in Ford and GM vehicles
allow users to record songs from CDs.

The recording alliance, represented by Covington & Burling partner
Jonathan Sperling and associate Dustin Cho, is seeking $2,500 for
each of the devices made since 2011.  Created to collect and
distribute royalties from the Audio Home Recording Act, the group
counts Universal Music Group Inc., Sony Music Entertainment Inc.
and Warner Music Group Corp. among its members.

"Defendants have refused to comply with the AHRA and refused to
pay the royalties that Congress has determined they owe for the
recording devices they manufacture, import and/or distribute --
notwithstanding intensive efforts by the AARC going back at least
two years to persuade Defendants to live up to their statutory
obligations," the complaint says.  "Defendants' intransigence has
left the AARC with no choice but to file this lawsuit."


GENERAL MOTORS: No Solution Yet for Cadillac Ignition Switch Risk
-----------------------------------------------------------------
James R. Healey and Chris Woodyard, writing for USA Today, report
that three weeks after a recall and telling dealers not to sell
them, General Motors continues to look for a way to fix an
ignition switch risk in half a million Cadillacs.

"We're still working on it," GM spokesman Alan Adler said on
July 21, noting that it's unclear how long it will take to find a
solution.

The ignition switches in 554,328 Cadillacs from the 2004-2014
model years can move out of the "run" position for two reasons:
Heavy key rings can pull the switch out of "run" if the car is
jarred by severe bumps; and the driver's knee can bump the key and
knock the switch out of position.

"We're working on a solution that will work on all," Mr. Adler
says.

When the key moves out of "run," it shuts off the engine, kills
the power-assist to steering and brakes and can disable the
airbags, the same problem that forced a GM recall of 2.19 million
U.S. small cars in February and March; the recall is linked to 13
deaths.  The recalled Cadillacs don't use the same switches as
those cars.

GM has barred dealers from selling any recalled Cadillacs on their
lots until it comes up with a fix. Dealers borrow money to buy
their inventories, so are eager for GM to find a solution.

Recalled are the 2003 to 2014 CTS vehicles -- excluding the
new-design CTS four-door sedan.  Also recalled are the 2004 to
2006 SRX crossovers.  The vehicles were among 7.55 million in the
U.S. in GM's June 30 announcement of six recalls.

It's isn't unusual to recall cars for a danger before a fix is
devised.  By law, automakers have to tell the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration of any safety flaw within five
working days.


GENERAL MOTORS: Faces Suit in NY Over Ignition Switch Defect
------------------------------------------------------------
Jessica Dye, writing for Reuters, reports that General Motors was
hit on July 29 with a lawsuit brought on behalf of more than 650
people allegedly injured or killed in accidents involving cars
that have been recalled this year for faulty ignition switches.

The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court, where dozens of
cases against GM over the switch recall have been consolidated.
It names a total of 658 plaintiffs, including 29 who are bringing
claims on behalf of people who died.

Since the beginning of the year, GM has recalled nearly 15 million
vehicles worldwide over potentially defective ignition switches.
The company has set up a program, run by lawyer Kenneth Feinberg,
to compensate victims of crashes involving about 2.6 million of
those cars, mostly Cobalts, Ions and other small cars that it
linked to 54 crashes and 13 deaths.

The July 29 lawsuit covers claims that would not be eligible for
the program, according to Robert Hilliard, the lawyer who filed
the suit.  These include accidents involving cars not among the
2.6 million initially recalled for switch issues and accidents in
which the car's airbags deployed, which are ineligible for the
program.

Mr. Feinberg has said that airbag non-deployment is a key sign
that the ignition switch may not have been properly working.

A spokesman for GM, Jim Cain, declined to comment specifically on
the allegations in the suit.  He said that Mr. Feinberg was in
charge of setting the criteria for the program, and GM had not set
a limit on how much it would pay to eligible claimants.  "It's our
goal to treat people fairly and with compassion throughout the
process," Mr. Cain said.

The lawsuit also includes people who under the program would
receive less than "fair value" for their claims, such as an
injured person who stayed in the hospital for just one night,
Mr. Hilliard said.  Under the protocol Mr. Feinberg released for
the program, claims involving hospital stays of one night would
receive $20,000.

The accidents cited in the lawsuit occurred after GM exited
bankruptcy in July 2009, Mr. Hilliard said.

So-called new GM, a different legal entity than the company that
filed for bankruptcy, is not responsible for legal claims relating
to incidents that took place before July 2009.  Those claims must
be brought against what remains of old, pre-bankruptcy GM.  GM has
asked a bankruptcy judge to rule on whether legal claims over the
switches are barred.

The case is Abney v. GM, U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York, No. 14-5810.


GENERAL MOTORS: Disbarred Attorney Challenges Transfer of Suits
---------------------------------------------------------------
Amanda Bronstad, writing for The National Law Journal, reports
that plaintiffs who have sued General Motors Co. over defects in
their cars, including disbarred civil rights attorney
Stephen Yagman, are continuing to fight a federal panel's decision
to transfer their lawsuits to a coordinated proceeding in New
York.

GM, facing an onslaught of lawsuits since recalling 2.6 million
vehicles over ignition switch defects, has moved to transfer all
the cases to U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman of the Southern
District of New York.  So far, the U.S. Judicial Council on
Multidistrict Litigation has sent 101 cases to Furman for pretrial
purposes.

But some plaintiffs are slamming the brakes on those transfers.
Mr. Yagman, released in 2010 after spending two years in federal
prison on tax and bankruptcy fraud charges, is fighting the MDL
panel's transfer on July 21 of a case he filed pro se against GM,
claiming that an unspecified defect caused his 2007 Buick Lucerne
to abruptly shut down twice.

After two trips to mechanics, Mr. Yagman is convinced that the
problem is unrelated to any ignition problem.  "GM is attempting
to misuse the federal multidistrict litigation availability to get
every case filed against GM bundled into multidistrict litigation
and then sent to the Southern District of New York," he said.

Two other plaintiffs' lawyers, Steven Stolze --
sstolze@allfela.com -- of St. Louis-based Holland Groves and Vince
Megna of Milwaukee's Aiken & Scoptur, filed notices on July 21
that they planned to oppose transfer of their lawsuits.

Mr. Stolze's case involves four plaintiffs claiming both economic
damages and personal injuries from accidents.  One plaintiff is
the sister of Joseph Harding Jr., who died when the 2006 Chevy
Cobalt he was driving crashed in Stephensville, Mich.  He was one
of the 13 victims whom GM has acknowledged died due to the defect.
Mr. Stolze, who filed a motion on July 22 to remand the case to
the 22d Judicial District of the City of St. Louis, Mo., did not
return a call for comment.

Mr. Megna represents Erin Kandziora, who sued for economic damages
associated with her 2010 Chevy Cobalt.  Mr. Megna, who also has
targeted the dealership that sold her the car, plans to seek
remand to the Milwaukee County, Wis., Circuit Court, claiming it's
a "pretty small case" to be in the MDL.

Plaintiffs' attorneys Robert Hilliard and Lance Cooper, who had
planned to oppose transfer of some of their most high-profile
cases, have switched gears.  On June 18, a federal judge in
Atlanta remanded Cooper's case filed on behalf of the parents of
Brooke Melton to Cobb County, Ga., State Court.

Mr. Hilliard, meanwhile, has voluntarily dismissed three cases,
including one brought on behalf of Candice Anderson and the family
of her fiance, Gene Mikale Erickson, who died when the 2004 Saturn
Ion Anderson was driving crashed in 2004.  Mr. Erickson's death
was among those acknowledged by GM.  A potential pardon for
Ms. Anderson, who pleaded guilty to criminal negligent homicide in
Mr. Erickson's death, came up during a U.S. Senate hearing on
July 17.

Mr. Hilliard, of Hilliard Munoz Gonzales in Corpus Christi, also
withdrew a May 6 lawsuit filed on behalf of the parents of
Trenton Buzard, 6, who was paralyzed by a 2009 crash involving the
family's 2005 Chevy Cobalt, and a May 15 lawsuit filed on behalf
of the family of Emma Dyer and Anthony Harmon, who drowned in 2006
after Ms. Dyer lost control of her 2005 Saturn Ion, which crashed
into a canal.

Mr. Hilliard said he wants those clients to file claims with a
fund GM has set up to compensate people injured, or the families
of those who died, in accidents caused by its ignition switch
defect.  Administrator Kenneth Feinberg is expected to begin
accepting claims on that fund on Aug. 1.

If his clients don't like the payouts, Mr. Hilliard said, he will
refile some of their cases.

"The fight to keep them out of the MDL is something I wanted to
save for another day, after the clients were able to figure out if
they wanted to take the Feinberg award or not," Mr. Hilliard said.


GENERAL MOTORS: Judge Remands Ignition Switch Suit to Cobb County
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Katheryn Hayes Tucker, writing for Daily Report, reports that the
Cobb County couple suing General Motors over an ignition switch
defect they say caused their daughter's death have won an
important victory.

The lawsuit that launched recalls for millions of cars is back in
litigation before Cobb County State Court Judge Kathryn Tanksley
after Kenneth and Mary Elizabeth Melton defeated an attempt by GM
to move the case to federal court and merge it with a host of
others in multidistrict litigation that are likely to be slowed
down, settled confidentially or even frozen under the remnants of
the company's bankruptcy proceedings, also in federal court in
New York.  The couple is attempting to return $5 million the
company paid them to settle, saying GM had been withholding
important information when the case was resolved.

The Meltons' lawyers say they want to try the case in the couple's
home county so the Meltons can find and make public the truth
about why their daughter died and what could have been done to
prevent it.

GM has replaced its King & Spalding lawyers on the case and is now
represented by Robert Ingram -- ringram@mijs.com -- and Jeffrey
Daxe -- jad@mijs.com -- of Moore Ingram Johnson & Steele in
Marietta.  A GM spokesman said the company would have no
additional comment beyond court records.

U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Thrash Jr. of the Northern
District of Georgia issued a ruling on July 18 remanding the case
to Cobb and rejecting GM's argument that the Meltons had
"fraudulently joined" the automaker with another defendant,
Thornton Chevrolet, the dealership that sold the Meltons' daughter
Brooke a 2005 Cobalt.  GM had alleged that Thornton, a Georgia
company, had been made a defendant only to prevent the case from
being litigated in federal court.

Brooke Melton, a 29-year-old nurse, died shortly after a car crash
on March 10, 2010.  Her parents claim that her death came the day
after the Thornton service department returned her car to her and
told her the problem she reported -- the ignition switch suddenly
turning off while she was driving -- had been repaired.

Judge Thrash ruled that "there is a sufficient connection between
the liability claims asserted against GM and the negligence claim
asserted against Thornton."  The judge noted that the claims are
based on the same incident, Brooke Melton's death from her car
crash, which is a component of the claims against both defendants.
"GM has failed to satisfy the heavy burden of fraudulent
misjoinder," Judge Thrash wrote.

On the day of Judge Thrash's order to send the case back to Cobb,
GM filed in the Cobb court a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.  The
Meltons filed a response on July 21.

The Meltons' attorney, Lance Cooper of the Cooper Firm in
Marietta, noted that GM and Thornton had been joined as defendants
in the lawsuit since he originally filed it in Cobb in 2011.

According to Mr. Cooper, the August 2013 settlement of the case
was based on information from GM to the effect that the company's
executives didn't know of the ignition switch defect Mr. Cooper
learned about during his investigation of the Meltons' case.  "We
didn't have any evidence that they knew about the design change
because they told us they didn't," Mr. Cooper said.

Still, Mr. Cooper wrote to regulators in pursuit of a safety
recall over ignition switches suddenly turning themselves from run
to off or auxiliary.  After the Meltons settled, GM began
recalling cars similar to Brooke's, then bigger cars.  Congress
began an investigation, as did GM, revealing that some GM
executives knew of the defect for a decade before Brooke died.
That knowledge was affirmed by GM CEO Mary Barra in televised
testimony before the congressional subcommittee investigating GM,
although Barra said she did not find out about the problem until
after she took office in January.  A company report also revealed
the Meltons were paid $5 million to settle -- money they are now
seeking to return.

The Meltons allege that GM fraudulently concealed relevant
evidence and affirmatively misled them in an attempt to convince
them to settle their case, and that their settlement was based on
incomplete and false data.  The Meltons attempted to rescind their
settlement in April and refiled their lawsuit in Cobb in May,
alleging both GM and Thornton were liable for their daughter's
death.

"All we're asking for is to be put back where we were and just go
to trial," Mr. Cooper said.

The return of the Melton case to Cobb for discovery and trial is
"the most important thing that has happened so far in the GM
litigation," said Jere Beasley of Beasley Allen, the Montgomery
plaintiffs' firm that has joined with Cooper in litigation over
the ignition switch defect.  "The Melton case will now take center
stage."

The couple heard the news from their lawyers by telephone because
they were in Washington last week attending another congressional
hearing on the GM investigations and recalls.  Mr. Beasley said
the Meltons had a meeting with Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who
chairs the subcommittee that is investigating the GM matter.  He
said the senator thanked them for what they are doing and hugged
them.

The Meltons' lawyers say discovery in the case is crucial because
it will examine who knew what about the ignition defect and when
they knew it. Cooper said the Meltons take a measure of
satisfaction in the belief that their daughter's death may be used
to save other lives. The number of cars recalled by GM for repair
of the ignition switch defect first discovered in the Meltons'
case is now up to 29 million.


GEORGIA: Attorneys Respond to Same-Sex Marriage Ban Class Action
----------------------------------------------------------------
Patrick Saunders, writing for GA Voice, reports that attorneys for
the two defendants in the federal class action lawsuit challenging
Georgia's 2004 same-sex marriage ban responded to the suit late on
July 21.  Their responses follow Attorney General Sam Olens'
motion to dismiss the suit on behalf of State Registrar Debbie
Aderhold earlier on July 21.

The lawyer for Clerk of Gwinnett County Probate Court Brook
Davidson argues that the defendant has to follow the letter of the
law in her duties.  Ms. Davidson is defended by private attorney
Frank E. Jenkins of Cartersville.

"If the laws of the State of Georgia are amended by the citizens
of the State of Georgia, the Georgia General Assembly (or
otherwise), or are found to be unconstitutional by a court of
competent jurisdiction, Defendant Davidson will continue to abide
by and administer the law as amended or interpreted."

Later in the brief:

"Defendant Davidson further admits that she has a legal duty to
abide by the laws of the State of Georgia, and is required by the
Georgia Constitution and state statute to issue marriage licenses
in accordance with existing Georgia state law, which excludes
same-sex couples from marriage in the State of Georgia."

Fulton Probate Judge Pinkie Toomer is a known LGBT ally and swore
in lesbian Jane Morrison as Fulton Superior Court Judge in 2013.
Judge Toomer is being defended in the case by Fulton County Judge
Kaye Woodard Burwell.

The majority of Judge Toomer's response is boilerplate and does
not contain any constitutional bombshells, mostly stating that as
a judicial officer she is required to comply with state laws and
the Georgia Constitution and that this role also grants her
"absolute judicial immunity" to such claims.


GOOGLE INC: Judge Allows Kids' In-Apps Class Action to Proceed
--------------------------------------------------------------
Diane Bartz, writing for Reuters, reports that Google Inc. must
face a class action lawsuit filed by a U.S. woman whose son had
bought online videogame items without her consent, a federal judge
ruled late on July 21 as he turned down the company's request to
dismiss the action.

The case, which accuses Google of breaking various laws regarding
fair dealing with consumers, can go forward, Judge Ronald Whyte
ruled late on July 21 in the U.S. district court in San Jose.  He
denied Google's motion to dismiss portions of the case that
alleged its advertisements were "unfair, deceptive or misleading."
He also denied motions to dismiss allegations that Google breached
the "duty of good faith and fair dealing."

Judge Whyte dismissed other parts of the lawsuit, but said he
would allow them to be refiled if they are amended.

Google had asked the judge to dismiss the case entirely.

In the lawsuit, the parent said she had created a Google Play
account for her Samsung Galaxy tablet and connected it to her
debit card.  She then used her password to download and pay for a
99-cent game known as "Marvel Run Jump Smash."  But her password
remained open for 30 minutes after the download and during that
time, her child, whose age was not disclosed, racked up $65.95 in
purchases within apps, the lawsuit said.

The Federal Trade Commission settled a similar case with Apple
Inc. in January and filed a lawsuit against Amazon.com in July
related to allegations that children sometimes accumulated
hundreds or even thousands of dollars in charges that parents did
not authorize because of inadequate controls put in place by the
companies.

The FTC has not said if it is investigating Google for similar
practices.


HOTWIRE: Settles Car Rental Class Action for $130,000
-----------------------------------------------------
Kyla Asbury, writing for Legal Newsline, reports that Hotwire has
agreed to settle a class action against it alleging the company
misled its customers by providing an estimated price for
international vehicle rentals that did not include insurance fees
or taxes.

Class members made reservations through Hotwire's website while in
the United States for car rentals in a foreign country and
received a confirmation from Hotwire that included an estimated
amount of taxes or fees of $0, according to the settlement
document filed June 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of California.

The settlement requires Hotwire to pay any administration costs
exceeding $10,000, plus a total of $130,000, which will be
distributed to class members.  Attorneys will receive $44,400 in
attorneys' fees and costs.  Daniel Shahar will receive a service
award of $500.

The lawsuit was initially filed in 2012 and claimed Hotwire
misinformed consumers about the taxes and fees they would be
required to pay when renting cars internationally.

The lawsuit also claimed that Hotwire provided customers with an
estimated trip total that left off the taxes and fees the customer
would have to pay, indicating that the estimated taxes and fees
would be equal to $0, according to the suit.

Hotwire has denied the allegations but agreed to settle the class
action lawsuit to avoid the expense and uncertainty of ongoing
litigation.

Class members of the lawsuit include persons and entities in the
United States who, from Nov. 27, 2008 until the present, made a
reservation through the Hotwire website for a car rental in a
foreign country and received a confirmation letter from Hotwire
that include an estimated amount of taxes or fees equal to or less
than $0.

Class members must have been in the United States when using the
Hotwire website to make the car rental reservation.

The class has been limited to a specific list of 1,089
transactions by 1,076 persons, as identified in Hotwire's computer
system.  The amount distributed to class members will be at least
$10 per day of the car rental, according to the settlement
documents.

If the settlement receives final approval, payments will
automatically be mailed to class members.

Mr. Shahar was represented by Cory S. Fein, Michael A. Caddell and
Cynthia B. Chapman of Caddell & Chapman.

Hotwire was represented by Rodney G. Strickland Jr. --

HYMAN'S SEAFOOD: Faces Class Action Over "Tip Credit" Policy
------------------------------------------------------------
WCSC reports that the owners of a popular seafood restaurant in
Downtown Charleston are being sued after more than a dozen current
and former employees allege the restaurant's "tipping" policy
violates federal law.

Hyman's Seafood Company has until the end of the month to respond
to a class action lawsuit filed by 15 employees.  The lawsuit was
filed July 3 after a former waitress came forward.  According to
court documents, Hyman's takes $5 at the end of the night from
each server for a tip pool.  From that pool, $1 goes to the main
dishwasher and another dollar goes to the salad preparer.

The U.S. Department of Labor says a valid tip pool is only one
shared among those who deal with customers directly like servers,
bussers and bartenders.  It does not include ". . . employees who
do not customarily and regularly receive tips, such as
dishwashers, cooks, chefs and janitors."  It went on to say that
when a restaurant's policy is to distribute tips among non-tipped
employees, the restaurant has violated the tip credit policy of
the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The court documents also allege that another portion of the $5 is
paid to the restaurant's owners for "breakage".  The lawsuit says
the servers were told the "breakage" fee went towards lost
silverware and broken dishes.  According to the lawsuit, the
employees are also suing for overtime, saying the defendants
knowingly allowed servers to "work off the clock."


INFOCISION MANAGEMENT: Settles Charity Telemarketing Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Jim Mackinnon, writing for Akron Beacon Journal, reports that
InfoCision Management Corp. agreed to pay $1.7 million earlier
this year to settle a class-action lawsuit that claimed the Bath
Township teleservices firm misled donors on how much of their
money would go to various charities.

Slightly more than $1 million of the settlement went to the
charities named in the case.  One-third of the settlement --
$566,666, -- plus $33,830 in expenses went to the two law firms
that litigated the case filed in 2012, according to a document
filed with U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
The plaintiff in the case, Dora Oatman, received $2,500.

The law firms were Murray & Murray in Sandusky and Elk & Elk in
Mayfield Heights. In an email on July 22, Murray briefly outlined
the settlement.  Court documents say the settlement, initially
agreed upon in late 2013, cannot be construed as an admission or
concession by InfoCision that it did any wrongdoing or admits to
any liability.

InfoCision released a statement on July 22, which reads in full:

"Last year, InfoCision Management Corp. entered into a settlement
of a class-action lawsuit initially filed in Cuyahoga County
Common Pleas Court.  We agreed to the settlement to allow our
clients and employees to put this matter behind them.  This matter
has been resolved.

"We believe it remains important to point out that there was no
finding of any wrongdoing by InfoCision.  As an industry leader,
we abide by all laws governing our sector, and we are proud of our
employees and our record of serving clients and their missions."

The lawsuit was filed after Bloomberg Markets magazine published a
report saying InfoCision, in one instance, retained as much as 85
percent of money raised for charities while its telemarketers told
prospective donors that 75 percent of their money would go to the
charity.

InfoCision disputed that news report.

A spokeswoman for the American Heart Association, one of numerous
charities listed in the settlement, said on July 22 that she was
not aware of the legal action but would look into it.

Court documents indicated the association was to receive more than
11.6 percent of the settlement money set aside for charities, the
single largest percentage of the approximately 170 organizations
named.

U.S. District Court Judge James S. Gwin approved the settlement
March 28, with the money disbursed in April.


INTERNATIONAL WINE: Fails to Pay Proper Overtime, Ex-Worker Says
----------------------------------------------------------------
Agustin Hiraldo v. International Wine & Spirits, and Nancy
Phillips, individually, Case No. 1:14-cv-04498 (E.D.N.Y.,
July 25, 2014) alleges that the Defendants failed to pay the
Plaintiff some of his hours worked in excess of 40 hours per work
week at a time and a half rate of pay, in direct violation of the
Fair Labor Standards Act and applicable state laws of the state of
New York.

Mr. Hiraldo worked for the Defendants as a non-exempt liquor
retail worker in New York from 1995 through June 2014.

International Wine & Spirits is a New York corporation.  Nancy
Phillips is an owner, partner, officer or manager of International
Wine & Spirits.  The Defendants are in the commercial liquor
retail business.

IRAN: Judge Awards More Than $8BB to Embassy Bombing Victims
------------------------------------------------------------
Zoe Tillman, writing for Legal Times, reports that victims of
deadly terrorist attacks in 1998 at the U.S. embassies in Kenya
and Tanzania were awarded more than $8 billion on July 25 by a
federal judge in Washington, D.C.

Combined, the four judgments entered by U.S. District Judge John
Bates represented one of the largest sets of awards since 2008,
when Congress approved legislation to make it easier for terror
victims to sue foreign governments over responsibility for
attacks.

"There's no amount of money that can compensate people for the
loss," said Gavriel Mairone of MM-LAW in Chicago, a lead attorney
for the plaintiffs.  "But the point is that this is not about
compensation, it's about trying to bring the rule of law across
the world."

The two bombings at the embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es
Salaam, Tanzania, killed hundreds and injured thousands.

Most of the plaintiffs at the heart of the July 25 orders were
foreign nationals -- several hundred Kenyan and Tanzanian
individuals who worked at the U.S. embassies and were killed or
injured in the attacks, along with their families.  The plaintiffs
also included U.S. citizens.  The victims sued to hold the
governments of Iran and Sudan responsible for supporting the
bombings.

The 2008 amendment to the federal Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act
opened the door to lawsuits brought by foreign citizens working
for the U.S. government.

Steven Perles of the Perles Law Firm in Washington, also a lawyer
for the plaintiffs, credited Vice President Joe Biden with moving
through the 2008 legislative changes affecting foreign citizens
working for the United States when he was chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee.

Mr. Biden "single-handedly moved for relief for foreign State
Department employees, those local personnel who serve in our
embassies," Mr. Perles said.

Judge Bates and other judges in the federal court in Washington
have awarded a series of high-dollar judgments to victims of
terrorism and their family members since 2008.  In May 2013, Bates
awarded $8.4 billion to victims of the 1983 and 1984 bombings at
the U.S. embassy in Beirut, Lebanon and their families.

"Damages awards cannot fully compensate people whose lives have
been torn apart; instead, they offer only a helping hand.  But
that is the very least that these plaintiffs are owed.  Hence, it
is what this court will facilitate," Judge Bates wrote in the
rulings.

The plaintiffs face an uphill climb in collecting the money.  Iran
and Sudan have not participated in the litigation, and Iran has
yet to pay nearly $18 billion it already owes from other judgments
in terrorism cases in the D.C. court. (The Iranian government
didn't participate in those cases either.) Mr. Mairone said the
plaintiffs' legal team is in the process of identifying assets
they might be able to attach and is optimistic about being able to
collect for their clients.

"A couple of years ago, if we looked at this kind of judgment we'd
think, well, it's a great moral victory but the odds of it being a
practical victory are rather stretched," Mr. Mairone said.  "But I
don't think that's the reality today."  He declined to discuss the
details of efforts to locate Iranian and Sudanese assets.
Other firms representing the embassy bombing plaintiffs include
the Law Firm of Allen L. Rothenberg in Philadelphia; The Miller
Firm in Orange, Va.; Eaves Law Firm in Jackson, Miss.; and Wheeler
& Franks Law Firm in Tupelo, Miss.

Earlier this month, a three-judge panel in the U.S. Court of
Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled in favor of victims who
brought other terrorism cases against Iran and were trying to
claim nearly $2 billion in frozen assets in New York bank
accounts.  The claimants had argued the accounts belonged to an
Iranian state-run bank and should be turned over to satisfy
outstanding judgments.

On July 23, lawyers for the Iranian bank asked for a rehearing
before the Second Circuit panel and a full sitting of the court.

LABMD: House Holds Hearing on FTC Case Over Data Security
---------------------------------------------------------
Jenna Greene, writing for The National Law Journal, reports that
the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on July 24
jumped in the middle of the Federal Trade Commission's ongoing
data security trial against medical testing facility LabMD,
holding a three-hour hearing that questioned whether the agency's
case is appropriate or fair.

The FTC is "using its regulatory authority not to help protect
consumers but to get simple consent decrees using the unlimited
power it has," said committee chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif.
But some committee Democrats questioned whether the oversight
hearing itself was appropriate or fair.  "We cannot substitute
ourselves for a regulatory agency in the midst of proceedings,"
said Gerry Connolly, D-Va., who called it a "dangerous precedent."
Connolly said "our role is not to hear the case all over again."
The FTC sued LabMD, a privately held company that performs cancer
detection tests for doctors, in August 2013 for failing to protect
consumer privacy in violation of Section 5 of the FTC Act.

According to the agency, a file with information about 9,300 LabMD
patients, including names, birth dates, social security numbers
and medical test results, turned up on a peer-to-peer file sharing
network in 2008.

The case went to trial before FTC Chief Administrative Law Judge
D. Michael Chappell on May 20, but is now stayed pending a
decision by the Oversight Committee whether to grant a key witness
limited immunity.

Of particular interest to the committee is the role of the
witness's former employer, cyber intelligence company Tiversa
Inc., in the FTC case.

LabMD president Michael Daugherty said in committee testimony that
his "nightmare" began when Tiversa president Robert Boback called
him out of the blue and said his company found LabMD patient data
on the Internet but "refused to tell us more unless we paid and
retained them."

Mr. Daugherty said Tiversa, which has patented search technology,
wanted $40,000 to fix the breach. Unable to find any compromised
data online, LabMD said no. Tiversa called back a few months later
and said it was giving its LabMD files to the FTC -- information
that has figured prominently in the FTC's case.

Another witness, David Roesler, executive director of the Open
Door Clinic of Greater Elgin, testified that his non-profit AIDs
service organization was also contacted by Tiversa and told of a
peer-to-peer data breach.  Mr. Roesler said Tiversa wanted $475 an
hour to fix it, but Open Door said it could not find any evidence
of a breach and declined.

Open Door was then hit with a class action lawsuit based on the
information breach, which it settled without admitting
responsibility for the disclosure, and also received a warning
letter from the FTC.

"To me, it looks a little like an extortion game," said John Mica,
R-Fla.

Issa added, "I bet if you had paid Tiversa, you never would have
gotten that letter."

In all, Tiversa has turned in almost 100 companies to the FTC,
according to John Duncan, R-Tenn. "The FTC should check on
something like that . . . it's seemingly an almost criminal
conflict of interest," he said.

Tiversa CEO Boback disputed the criticism.  "The hearing included
countless inaccurate and misleading statements that
mischaracterized the way Tiversa does business . . . The committee
is being badly misinformed by LabMD," Boback said in an email.
"It would better if the committee focused on helping consumers
fight cybercrime instead of influencing private litigation with
the FTC."

He continued: "In the course of doing business, Tiversa
occasionally identifies exposed files of random organizations that
are not retained by Tiversa that are publically available on peer-
to-peer networks.  When possible, Tiversa directly contacts the
organization to inform them of the exposed file and return it to
them.  On occasion, some of those exposed organizations
subsequently retain Tiversa to mitigate their vulnerability.  Only
about 1 percent of Tiversa's business stems from these instances."

A spokesperson for the FTC declined to comment.

Committee members also questioned whether the FTC has the
authority to go after companies for data security breaches.  The
agency has not issued formal rules laying out compliance.

"People have the right to know what the law expects of them before
they're prosecuted," said Gerard Stegmaier, a partner at Goodwin
Procter, in testimony before the committee.  "The agency has
offered no formal rulemaking. It appears to regulate data security
primarily through complaints or consent orders . . . The situation
is ripe for overreach, unfairness and uneven application of the
law."

But Woodrow Hartzog, a professor at Samford University's
Cumberland School of Law, responded that the FTC's authority to
act under Section 5 is intentionally broad and covers data
security practices -- an assertion bolstered by a New Jersey
federal judge, who ruled in April that the FTC has the authority
to bring a data security case against Wyndham Worldwide Corp.

The FTC defers to industry standards to determine whether a
company is taking reasonable steps to safeguard private
information, Mr. Hartzog said.

Given how quickly technology evolves, as well as the need to
differentiate appropriate practices for a small business versus a
mega-retailer like Amazon.com, he argued it was wise way to
proceed.

"For example, in tort law, you're expected to build a product
safely, but you're not given a manual," Mr. Hartzog said.  "A one-
size-fits-all checklist for data security would never work."

LIONS GATE: Pomerantz Law Firm Files Class Action in New York
-------------------------------------------------------------
Pomerantz LLP on July 21 disclosed that it has filed a class
action lawsuit against Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. and certain
of its officers.  The class action, filed in United States
District Court, Southern District of New York, and docketed under
14-cv-5477, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or
entities who purchased Lions Gate securities between February 11,
2013 and March 13, 2014, inclusive.  This class action seeks to
recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the
federal securities laws under the Securities Act of 1933 and the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

If you are a shareholder who purchased Lions Gate securities
during the Class Period, you have until September 9, 2014 to ask
the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.  A copy
of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com
To discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at
rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll
free, x237.  Those who inquire by e-mail are encouraged to include
their mailing address, telephone number, and number of shares
purchased.

Lions Gate, an entertainment company, is engaged in motion picture
production and distribution, television programming and
syndication, home entertainment, family entertainment, digital
distribution, new channel platforms, and international
distribution and sales activities.

The Complaint alleges that by the start of the Class Period, Lions
Gate was under investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission for making false and misleading statements and
omissions concerning a series of transactions designed to prevent
a takeover of the Company by Carl Icahn and his affiliates.
During the Class Period, however, Lions Gate and the other
defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose the existence
of the SEC investigation, the prospect of legal proceedings
associated with the misconduct under investigation, and the
Company's exposure to loss in connection therewith.

In March 2010, Carl Icahn commenced a series of tender offers
intended to facilitate his takeover of the Company by increasing
his ownership interest in Lions Gate and allowing him to designate
his chosen representatives to the Company's Board of Directors.
Threatened by the possibility of losing control of the Company or
being replaced, Lions Gate's management and the Board sought to
block Mr. Icahn's plans.

On July 20, 2010, the Board -- with management's assistance --
approved and facilitated the Transactions, which resulted in
placing over 16 million shares of common stock in the hands of
director Mark Rachesky and/or entities he controlled while
diluting the interests of other Lions Gate shareholders, including
Mr. Icahn.  Mr. Rachesky was a staunch supporter of Lions Gate
management and the Board.

Thereafter, Lions Gate publicly represented that the Transactions
were "a key part of the Company's previously announced plan to
reduce its total debt, as well as its nearer term maturities."  In
fact, the SEC found, Lions Gate had not announced any such debt-
reduction plan.  Moreover, Lions Gate failed to adequately
disclose the true purpose of the Transactions: to stifle Icahn's
takeover attempts.  Following the public announcement of the
Transactions, Lions Gate continued to misrepresent their true
purpose to investors.

On March 13, 2014, the SEC issued an Order Instituting Cease-and-
Desist Proceedings Pursuant to Section 21C of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934, Making Findings, and Imposing a Cease-and-
Desist Order, which memorialized the resolution of the
investigation and charges against Lions Gate for making false and
misleading disclosures regarding the Transactions.  As detailed in
the Order, Lions Gate settled the investigation by, among other
things, agreeing to pay $7.5 million in fines and acknowledging
that it had violated the federal securities laws.

With offices in New York, Chicago, Florida, and San Diego, The
Pomerantz Firm -- http://www.pomerantzlaw.com-- concentrates its
practice in the areas of corporate, securities, and antitrust
class litigation.  Founded by the late Abraham L. Pomerantz, known
as the dean of the class action bar, the Pomerantz Firm pioneered
the field of securities class actions.  Today, more than 70 years
later, the Pomerantz Firm continues in the tradition he
established, fighting for the rights of the victims of securities
fraud, breaches of fiduciary duty, and corporate misconduct.  The
Firm has recovered numerous multimillion-dollar damages awards on
behalf of class members.

MARIANA RETIREMENT: Settles Attorney's Fees in Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Office of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands
Governor on July 22 disclosed that faced with a potential
liability of nearly $37.2 million in attorney fees in the
Retirement Fund class action settlement case (Betty Johnson v.
Inos), the Inos administration has reached settlements with the
Class Counsel for one-fifth of their total fee request.

Negotiations between the parties have been ongoing since October
2013 and were mediated by Judge Robert J. Faris.  In January, the
administration reached settlements of $185,000 and $800,000 with
Stephen C. Woodruff and Bruce Jorgensen, respectively.  Most
recently, on July 17, 2014, the administration finalized a
settlement agreement providing for payment of $6.5 million (to be
paid over three years) to the Bronster Hoshibata firm.

"The three-year payment term is a huge benefit for the
Commonwealth as it gives us time to incorporate the payments into
our budget and generate more revenue," stated Gov. Eloy S. Inos.

Acting Attorney General Gilbert Birnbrich explained, "If the
district court issued an order to pay attorney fees, the lump sum
amount would have been due at the time ordered and the amount
could have been two, three, or even five times the amount
negotiated in the fee settlements.  We presented strong arguments
to the district court for a fee award at the lower end, but there
was a high possibility that the court would award fees that
exceeded settlement amounts.  In one of its prior class action
settlement cases, the court awarded class counsel fees with a
multiplier of 8."

The Jorgensen and Bronster settlements are still subject to
approval by the district court and will not be final until such
approval.

The administration would have, of course, much preferred to see
these fee monies go to projects and programs in our community, but
the Commonwealth had an obligation to pay attorney fees under the
settlement agreement.

"It is likely that the court would have awarded fees that exceeded
the amounts we reached in settlement," added Governor Inos.  "The
fee settlements have saved the Commonwealth from exposure to
millions of dollars and these savings can be used for matters that
directly benefit our community, including the restoration of the
25 percent pension reduction."

The administration was also involved in settlement negotiations
with Timothy R. Lord, an attorney who was not included as Class
Counsel under the terms of the settlement agreement, but who
represented the plaintiff earlier in the case.  Mr. Lord insists
that he is entitled to almost $6 million in fees; the government
does not believe that he earned this fee and has not reached a
settlement with him.


MEDTRONIC INC: Moved "Spurlock" Suit to W.D. Tenn.
--------------------------------------------------
The lawsuit captioned Spurlock, et al. v. Medtronic, Inc., et al.,
Case No. CT-003230-14, was removed from the Circuit Court of
Shelby County, Tennessee, to the U.S. District Court for the
Western District of Tennessee (Memphis).  The District Court Clerk
assigned Case No. 2:14-cv-02572-JTF-cgc to the proceeding.

Plaintiff Julia Spurlock alleges that she suffered injuries as a
result of her exposure to components or individual parts of
Medtronic's Infuse(R) Bone Graft/LT-Cage(TM) Lumbar Tapered Fusion
Device (Infuse(R)) and other class II medical devices manufactured
by Medtronic.  Plaintiff Kenneth Spurlock, at all relevant times,
was married to Julia Spurlock.

Medtronic, Inc. is a Minnesota corporation, with its principal
place of business located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Medtronic
Sofamor Danek USA, Inc. is a Tennessee corporation headquartered

NAT'L COLLEGIATE: Settles Head Injury Class Action for $70MM
------------------------------------------------------------
Mary Wisniewski, writing for Reuters, reports that the NCAA has
agreed to settle a class-action head injury lawsuit by providing
$70 million for concussion testing and diagnosis of current and
former student athletes, according to court documents filed in
Chicago on July 29.

The agreement applies to student athletes who have played at NCAA
member schools at any time in the past until 50 years in the
future but does not include bodily injury claims.  The settlement
must be approved by U.S. District Judge John Lee.


NAT'L COLLEGIATE: Head Injury Settlement Raises Medical Questions
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Lindsey Tanner, writing for The Associated Press, reports that a
key feature of a proposed settlement of a head-injury lawsuit
against the NCAA is the creation of a $70 million fund to pay for
medical evaluations of current and former college players in
several sports.  The provision raises some sticky medical
questions.  Here are some of them:

WHAT WILL THE EVALUATIONS BE LOOKING FOR?

Players who believe they have suffered sports-related concussions
will be checked for conditions including post-concussion syndrome
and a devastating incurable brain disease called chronic traumatic
encephalopathy, or CTE, that has been diagnosed in several former
NFL players who committed suicide.  Both conditions can involve
headaches, memory and behavior problems, but CTE is more severe
and most feared by athletes.  Most experts agree CTE can't be
diagnosed until after death, and there is no specific treatment,
although some symptoms can be managed with medicine or
psychotherapy.  Post-concussion syndrome symptoms also can be
managed, but diagnosis can be subjective.  Special scans can
sometimes pick up signs, but some imaging scans may be normal.

CAN DOCTORS DETERMINE THAT SPECIFIC HEAD BLOWS CAUSED LINGERING
CONCUSSION SYMPTOMS?

Testing won't answer that question, posing a dilemma for players
who may want to file lawsuits seeking to definitely link symptoms
with NCAA play.

DON'T BASELINE TESTS ADDRESS THAT ISSUE?

The NCAA doesn't currently require baseline evaluations.  The
settlement will mandate them at the start of each season for all
players.  That will give doctors comparison information, but won't
affect former players.

WHO WILL DO THE EVALUATIONS?

In the first phase, current and former players will self-report
symptoms, including mental troubles and mood and behavior
problems.  A five-member medical committee will evaluate the self-
reported symptoms and determine which players need in-person
testing.  The settlement recommends that the committee include
Dr. Brian Hainline, the NCAA's chief medical officer, and
Dr. Robert Cantu, a leading concussion expert and co-director of
Boston University's CTE Center.  Dr. Cantu has served as a
consultant to the NFL and to Boston College's football team.  The
settlement also recommends neuropsychologist Ruben Echemendia, who
has worked with the NHL, and a retired federal judge, Wayne R.
Andersen, to serve as committee chair.

At least 10 locations will be designated for testing, which may
include neurological and psychological exams.

NATIONAL HOCKEY: Sued by Players Over Effects of Head Trauma
------------------------------------------------------------
Dan Fritsche and Chris Ferraro on behalf of themselves and those
similarly situated v. National Hockey League, Case No. 1:14-cv-
05732 (S.D.N.Y., July 25, 2014) arises from the alleged
debilitating effects of head trauma, including mild traumatic
brain injuries, caused by the concussive and sub-concussive
impacts that have afflicted former professional hockey players in
the NHL.

Dan Fritsche is an Ohio resident.  He played in the NHL at various
times from 2003-2009.  Chris Ferraro is a New York resident.  He
was drafted in the 1992 NHL Draft by the New York Rangers and
played in the NHL at various times between 1995 and 2001.  The
Plaintiffs alleged that they suffered several concussions during
NHL play.

NORMAN REGIONAL: Faces Class Action Over Illegal Billing Practices
------------------------------------------------------------------
NewsChannel4 reports that Norman Regional Hospital is the target
of a class action lawsuit claiming the hospital has been illegally
billing patients.  The people suing are all drug or alcohol
suspects who were brought to the hospital by law enforcement to
have their blood tested.  The plaintiffs say they were then sent
the bill for that testing.  They claim state law says they
shouldn't be responsible for that bill; the law enforcement agency
should.

Six plaintiffs are listed in the lawsuit, but documents state
they're suing "on behalf of themselves and of all other arrestees
taken by law enforcement agencies to Norman Regional Hospital for
blood testing and billed by the hospital for those services."

Attorney, David Slane, did not file the lawsuit, but he says it
caught his eye and he agrees with the plaintiffs.

"Police departments from all over the state request these kinds of
tests and it would be quite surprising to me that the person's
actually being billed for that service," said Mr. Slane.  "I think
the law is quite clear once a person is arrested or held, then law
enforcement's responsible for those bills."

The lawsuit refers to a section of state statute 47 that reads,
"The costs of collecting blood, breath, saliva or urine specimens
for the purpose of determining the alcohol or other intoxicating
substance thereof, by or at the direction of a law enforcement
officer, shall be borne by the law enforcement agency employing
such officer."

"Quite surprised that it hasn't come up before now," said
Mr. Slane.

Plaintiffs also allege they were billed for emergency room
services when they were never seen or treated by a doctor.

Mr. Slane says this lawsuit could have far reaching implications.

"I think it's going to change the way both police and hospitals do
business," said Mr. Slane.

Kelly Wells, Norman Regional Health System spokesperson, said in a
statement, "We received service of the claim on Wednesday,
July 16.  It is the policy of Norman Regional Health System to not
comment on any pending litigation until there has been a full and
thorough investigation of all the facts."


NORTHERN STATE PRISON: Lehmann's In Forma Pauperis Status Denied
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fred S. Lehmann submitted a civil complaint on June 19, 2013,
accompanied by his affidavit of poverty but not his six-month
prison account statement; that submission gave rise to Lehmann v.
Northern State Prison, Civil Action No. 13-3790 (SRC).  The
Lehmann complaint named the New Jersey Department of Corrections
and Northern State Prison as Defendants, indicated Lehmann's
intent to commence a class action and alleged that his rights were
violated by not being paid $15 while in administrative
segregation. Six weeks later, Mr. Lehmann submitted another civil
complaint. It arrived, again, accompanied by his affidavit of
poverty but not his prison account statement, and had the name and
SBI number of Milton Whitlock written in the caption above Mr.
Lehmann's name.  The Whitlock complaint analogously named the New
Jersey Department of Corrections and Northern State Prison as
Defendants, indicated Mr. Lehmann's intent to commence a class
action and alleged that his rights were violated by not being paid
$15 while in segregation.

In light of Mr. Lehmann's failure to provide the Court with his
six-month account statement -- regardless of being informed of
that requirement nine times (in Lehmann's nine previous cases) --
District Judge Stanley R. Chesler said the Court will deny Mr.
Lehmann in forma pauperis status. Moreover, in light of Mr.
Lehmann's release from confinement and his failure to inform of
his change in address, such denial will be with prejudice.  In
conjunction with the foregoing, Mr. Lehmann's application for
class certification will be denied as moot and, in addition, for
failure to meet the requirements of Rule 23 in light of Mr.
Lehmann's personal/unique claims based on his own preferences as
to prison accommodations.

"In light of the absence of Whitlock's affidavit of poverty and
account statement, and because the content of the Whitlock
complaint does not allow this Court to determine with any degree
of certainty Whitlock's voluntary involvement in the Whitlock
matter, Whitlock's application for in forma pauperis status, if
such was intended, will analogously be denied," Judge Chesler
added.

The cases are FRED S. LEHMANN, Plaintiff, v. NORTHERN STATE
PRISON, et al., Defendants. MILTON WHITLOCK and FRED S. LEHMANN,
Plaintiffs, v. JDOC, et al., Defendants, CIVIL ACTION NOS. 13-3790
(SRC), 13-5130 (SRC), (D. N.J.).

NVR INC: Court Severs Most Claims in "Anderson" Case
----------------------------------------------------
In LINDA ANDERSON, et al., Plaintiffs, v. NVR, INC., Defendant.
United States District Court, W.D. New York, CASE NO. 13-CV-6315L,
a group of approximately 133 salespersons employed by NVR, Inc., a
home construction company with operations in upstate New York,
alleged that NVR has failed to pay them overtime in violation of
the Fair Labor Standards Act, 29 U.S.C. Section 201 et seq. (FLSA)
and the New York Labor Law. Specifically, plaintiffs claim that
during their employment with NVR, they performed non-exempt inside
sales work, "virtually always" more than forty hours per week, and
that NVR willfully failed to compensate them at the statutory
overtime rate of one-and-one-half times the regular rate.

The Plaintiffs have asked the Court to exercise its inherent power
to stay all proceedings in this case -- including resolution of
NVR's motion to sever -- until after the Second Circuit has ruled
on the plaintiffs' pending appeal of the judgment and post-trial
motions in Tracy v. NVR, 04-CV-6541.

"While I decline to stay all proceedings prior to resolving
defendant's motion to sever, I do conclude that a stay of this
action (and the severed case) will serve the interests of the
parties and the Court," wrote District Judge David G. Larimer in
his decision and order dated July 8, 2014, a copy of which is
available at http://is.gd/1v8eNofrom Leagle.com.

"[I]t is possible that the Second Circuit's eventual disposition
of the Tracy appeal will have an impact on the ultimate questions
of law in this case, and may dispose of some of the issues
presented entirely," Judge Larimer added. "As such, I find that
staying the proceedings, following severance . . . is
appropriate."

According to Judge Larimer, deciding the plaintiffs' claims
collectively would not serve the interests of judicial economy and
would pose a substantial danger of jury confusion.  He also found
that the plaintiffs' claims are not properly joined.

Accordingly, the Court ruled that Defendants' motion to sever the
claims of all plaintiffs except for the firstnamed plaintiff,
Linda Anderson is granted.  Ms. Anderson was directed to file an
Amended Complaint within 20 days of entry of the Decision and
Order with specifics as to her claims, in a new separate action
with a new docket number.

The Court also granted the plaintiffs' motion to stay, in part.
Once the Amended Complaint is filed, mediation, discovery and
further proceedings in that action, as well as the instant cases,
are stayed to await resolution of the appeal to the Second Circuit
in Tracy v. NVR, 04-CV-6541.

The Court reserved its ruling on (a) defendant's request to
dismiss the claims of all other listed plaintiffs, pending a
ruling from the Second Circuit on the direct appeal in Tracy v.
NVR, 04-CV-6541; and (b) whether the claims of the remaining
plaintiffs should be dismissed, or whether each plaintiff should
be directed to file a separate Amended Complaint as to that
plaintiff's specific claims and each party directed to pay the
usual filing fee for commencement of an action.

OEC BUSINESS: Accused of Illegally Terminating Account Manager
--------------------------------------------------------------
Pamela Towers v. OEC Business Interiors, Inc., Case No. 1:14-cv-
05743 (N.D. Ill., July 25, 2014) is brought to redress the alleged
unlawful and discriminatory actions of the Defendant culminating
in the termination of the Plaintiff's employment with OEC in
violation of her rights under the Constitution of the United
States.

Ms. Towers was over the age of 40 at the time her employment was
terminated.  She was hired by OEC in 1995 and she worked
continuously for the Defendant as an Account Manager throughout
her 18 years of service.  As a senior manager, she maintained one
of the top accounts for the Company, and was paid on a commission

that her top account was being pulled from her and the supervision
of that account was then placed with another, substantially
younger, Account Manager.

OEC does business throughout Illinois.

PEANUT CORP: Trial in Suit Over Salmonella Outbreak to Begin
------------------------------------------------------------
Kate Brumback, writing for The Associated Press, reports that
three people accused of scheming to manufacture and ship
salmonella-tainted peanuts that killed nine people, sickened more
than 700 and prompted one of the largest food recalls in history
are set to go to trial this week in south Georgia.

A federal indictment unsealed in February 2013 brought charges
against the head of Peanut Corporation of America and several
others stemming from the outbreak tied to peanuts processed by the
company.  It was an unusual move by the federal government, which
rarely prosecutes companies in food poisoning cases.

Federal investigators found filthy conditions at the company's
Georgia plant and said the employees even fabricated certificates
saying peanut product shipments were safe when tests said
otherwise.

Company owner Stewart Parnell invoked the Fifth Amendment to avoid
testifying before a congressional committee in February 2009.
Emails obtained by congressional investigators showed that he once
directed employees to "turn them loose" after samples of peanuts
tested positive for salmonella and then were cleared in another
test.

Several months before the outbreak, when a final lab test found
salmonella, Mr. Parnell expressed concern to Georgia plant manager
Samuel Lightsey, writing in an Oct. 6, 2008, email that the delay
"is costing us huge $$$$$."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found 714 people in
46 states were infected between September 2008 and March 2009.
There were three deaths in Minnesota, two in Ohio, two in
Virginia, one in Idaho and one in North Carolina.

The 76-count indictment charged Parnell and his food broker
brother Michael Parnell with conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud
and the introduction of adulterated and misbranded food into
interstate commerce with the intent to defraud or mislead. Stewart
Parnell and Georgia plant quality assurance manager Mary Wilkerson
were also charged with obstruction of justice.

The conspiracy and obstruction charges each carry a maximum
sentence of 20 years in prison.

Mr. Lightsey pleaded guilty in May to seven counts.  He will be
sentenced at a later date.

Food and Drug Administration inspectors found bad conditions in
the company's plant in Blakely, Georgia, including mold, roaches
and a leaky roof.  Another plant in Plainview, Texas, was
shuttered by that state's Department of Health Services in
February 2009 after product samples tested positive for
salmonella.

Jeff Almer's 72-year-old mother, Shirley, was among the nine
people who died after eating tainted peanut butter.  After
successfully battling lung cancer and a brain tumor, she ate the
bad peanut butter while being treated for dehydration in a
Minnesota hospital.

Since his mother's death in December 2008, Mr. Almer has
researched foodborne illnesses and pushed for stricter legislation
on safeguards.  He's also been one of the leading voices calling
for prosecution against Peanut Corp. and said he plans to travel
from the Twin Cities area to attend parts of the trial.

"I didn't know whether to celebrate or mourn," he said, recalling
the moment he heard about the indictment.  "It was a really tough
situation because it reminded me about my mom's situation all over
again, so the excitement was tempered."

Randy Napier's 80-year-old mother also died after eating
contaminated peanut butter at an assisted living home in Ohio.  He
still harbors anger toward Stewart Parnell and hopes to see him
punished.

"That was my mom, and for him to show not remorse, it's really
hard," Mr. Napier said.

Messrs. Napier and Almer hope the trial, which is expected to last
weeks, sends a message to food manufacturers that there can be
serious consequences for peddling contaminated food.

Criminal charges are rare in food outbreak cases because intent is
often hard to prove and companies often step up and acknowledge
their mistakes.  The indictment said Peanut Corp. misled customers
about the existence of salmonella in its product, even after lab
tests showed the bacteria was present. Prosecutors say employees
fabricated certificates accompanying some of the peanut shipments
saying they were safe.  The company later went bankrupt.


PENSKE LOGISTICS: 9th Cir. Remands Drivers Suit to District Court
-----------------------------------------------------------------
A certified class of drivers employed by Penske Logistics, LLC,
and Penske Truck Leasing Co., L.P., appealed from a judgment
dismissing their claims under California's meal and rest break
laws. The district court held on summary judgment that the Federal
Aviation Administration Authorization Act of 1994 (FAAAA) preempts
those state laws as applied to motor carriers.

Reviewing de novo the interpretation and construction of the FAAAA
and the question of federal preemption, Tillison v. Gregoire, 424
F.3d 1093, 1098 (9th Cir. 2005), the United States Court of
Appeals, Ninth Circuit held that the state laws at issue are not
"related to" prices, routes, or services, and therefore are not
preempted by the FAAAA. It added that the district court dismissed
this action on summary judgment because of Defendants' preemption
defense, so it has not yet considered the merits of Plaintiffs'
claims.  Accordingly, the Ninth Circuit reversed the District
Court ruling and remanded the case for for further proceedings
consistent with its opinion.

The case is MICKEY LEE DILTS; RAY RIOS; and DONNY DUSHAJ, on

RAMTRON INT'L: Del. Court Dismisses Shareholder Suit Over Merger
----------------------------------------------------------------
Daniel Dietrich of Burr & Forman, in an article for JD Supra,
reports that almost every proposed corporate merger is met with a
shareholder suit against the acquiring company, merger target and
the target's board of directors in which the shareholders assert
that the board breached its fiduciary duties by failing to
maximize the value of the company and disseminated proxy
statements that contained inadequate disclosures.  In a recent
case -- Dent v. Ramtron International Corp., CIV.A. 7950-VCP, 2014
WL 2931180 (Del. Ch. June 30, 2014) -- the Delaware Court of
Chancery dismissed such a shareholder suit, and in doing so
provided a detailed explanation of the requirements of directors
considering a merger.

In Dent, defendants Cypress Semiconductor and Ramtron
International reached an agreement in which Cypress was going to
purchase Ramtron.  Plaintiff Paul Dent was a stockholder in
Ramtron, and filed suit to enjoin the merger.  The court dismissed
the action with prejudice, taking the time to explain why the
allegations were not sufficient to withstand the motion to
dismiss.

The court first recognized that pursuant to Revlon, Inc. v.
MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings, Inc., 506 A.2d 173, 180 (Del. 1986),
the board has a fiduciary duty to protect the interests of the
corporation, to act in the best interests of its shareholders, and
when directors have commenced a transaction process that will
result in a change of control, to maximize the sale price of the
enterprise.  However, the court in Dent also recognized that the
Revlon duties are only a specific application of directors'
traditional fiduciary duties of care and loyalty in the context of
control transactions.  If the corporation's certificate contains
an exculpatory provision pursuant to 8 Del. C. Sec. 102(b)(7)
barring claims for monetary liability against directors for
breaches of the duty of care, the complaint must state a
nonexculpated claim, i.e., a claim predicated on a breach of the
directors' duty of loyalty or bad faith conduct.

Accordingly, to survive a motion to dismiss based on bad faith,
plaintiff must sufficiently allege that the board member
intentionally failed to act in the face of a known duty to act,
demonstrating a conscious disregard for his duties, or that the
"decision under attack is so far beyond the bounds of reasonable
judgment that it seems essentially inexplicable on any ground
other than bad faith."

This is an important decision because the court explains the
number of deficiencies present in the plaintiff's boilerplate
allegations, which are becoming "routine in the ubiquitous
shareholder litigation that immediately follows the announcement
of any public company merger or acquisition transaction."  In such
actions, the complaints contain the "proverbial laundry list of
issues" including allegations that there are preclusive deal
protection devices in place, lack of disclosure relating to
management projections and information considered in connection
with the fairness opinion, and the identity of comparable
transactions, to name a few.  The court addressed each of the
allegations, explaining why the information is either not
material, would not alter the total mix of information otherwise
available, or was sufficiently disclosed, although maybe not with
the level of detail requested by the plaintiff.  The plaintiff's
otherwise conclusory statements were not sufficient to withstand a
motion to dismiss, and the case was accordingly dismissed with
prejudice.


RC BIGELOW: Judge Tosses Some Claims in Black Tea Class Action
--------------------------------------------------------------
Lisa Hoffman, writing for The National Law Journal, reports that
plaintiffs scored a partial dunk in their proposed class action
accusing R.C. Bigelow, Inc., of improperly hyping the benefits of
antioxidants in the company's black teas.

Judge William Orrick of U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of California on July 18 declined to dismiss plaintiff
Adam Victor's claim that Bigelow unlawfully labeled its black tea
products as "deliver(ing) healthful antioxidants."  But Judge
Orrick did strike two other claims: That the same phrase was
fraudulent and misleading.

Judge Orrick found Mr. Victor's complaint adequately alleged that
Bigelow violated California and U.S. general nutrient content
labeling rules because no nutrient claims for antioxidants have
been approved by federal authorities for use on the label of a
food product.  But the judge said the absence of specifics to back
up the other two claims doomed that part of the complaint.

Judge Orrick implied he might have ruled differently, if only
Mr. Victor and Bigelow had followed his earlier road map for how
to prevail.

In his March 14 dismissal of certain claims in Mr. Victor's
original complaint, for example, Judge Orrick took to task
plaintiffs' lack of specifics showing how Bigelow had acted in a
fraudulent and misleading manner in its labeling.  The judge made
the same point in a July 9 hearing.

But in his latest ruling, Judge Orrick wrote that Mr. Victor, in
his amended complaint, again had not provided "the who, what,
when, where, and how of the misconduct charged."  So the judge
dismissed those claims, with prejudice.

Bigelow didn't appear to get the judge's hints, either.  In his
March order, Orrick said Bigelow failed to address his concerns by
not explaining why its products do not violate any law.

"Neither Bigelow's motion brief nor its reply brief expends any
effort to explain why its labels do not in fact violate (U.S. Food
and Drug Administration) and other regulation," Judge Orrick
wrote, to explain why he would not dismiss Victor's sole surviving
claim.

VISTEON CORP: Bank. Court No Jurisdiction Over Retirees' Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
In INTERNATIONAL UNION, UNITED AUTOMOBILE AEROSPACE, AND
AGRICULTURAL IMPLEMENT WORKERS OF AMERICA (UAW); and DOLORES
GROMALSKI and PABLO GOMES, for themselves and others similarly
situated, Plaintiffs, v. VISTEON CORPORATION; VISTEON SYSTEMS LLC;
VISTEON CARRIBBEAN, INC.; VISTEON SYSTEMS LLC HEALTH AND WELFARE
BENEFIT PLAN FOR HOURLY EMPLOYEES-NORTH PENN LOCATION; and VISTEON
CARIBBEAN, INC. EMPLOYEE GROUP INSURANCE PLAN, Defendants, NO. 1:
13-CV-01742-RGA, (D. Del.), before the Court is Defendants'
request to either refer the case to the bankruptcy court, or
retain the case in the District Court.

In their complaint, the Plaintiffs claim that the Defendants (1)
breached their collectively-bargained obligations to the
Plaintiffs; and (2) wrongfully terminated the Plaintiffs'
collectively-bargained lifetime healthcare benefits.

Earlier, in the course of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Delaware,
Visteon moved the Bankruptcy Court for permission to terminate all
United States retiree benefit plans pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section
363(b)(l). A group of retirees formerly employed by Visteon,
including the Plaintiffs, opposed the motion, arguing that Visteon
could not terminate the benefits without first complying with the
requirements of 11 U.S.C. Section 1114. (Id.). The Bankruptcy
Court granted Visteon's motion as to most of the retirees,
including the Plaintiffs, reasoning that the rights were not
vested and thus Visteon had the right to terminate those rights
unilaterally (the OPEB Termination Order).  A group of retirees
that did not include the Plaintiffs appealed the Bankruptcy
Court's ruling. The Third Circuit reversed the ruling and remanded
the proceedings.  On remand, the Bankruptcy Court held that the
Third Circuit's decision applied to UAW retirees and ordered the
Defendants to restore those benefits (the Reinstatement Order).
Visteon appealed the Reinstatement Order to the Delaware District
Court, arguing that the UAW retirees were not parties to the
appeal, and hence were bound by the bankruptcy court's Termination
Order. The Court agreed with Visteon, citing a strong interest in
finality. UAW appealed, and the case is pending in the Third
Circuit.

During this time, the Bankruptcy Court approved Visteon's Plan of
Reorganization. The Reorganization Plan reserved Visteon's right
to terminate retiree healthcare benefits upon its emergence from
Chapter 11. Accordingly, once Visteon emerged from bankruptcy on
October 1, 2010, it terminated the benefits of the North Penn and
Caribbean retirees, which included the Plaintiffs. The Plaintiffs
sued the Defendants in the Eastern District of Michigan for the
post-bankruptcy termination of their postemployment benefits. The
Defendants moved to dismiss the case or to have it transferred to
the District of Delaware. (Id.). The Michigan Court denied the
Defendants' motion to dismiss and granted the motion to transfer.
The Plaintiffs subsequently filed a Petition for Writ of Mandamus
requesting that the Sixth Circuit rescind the Michigan District's
transfer order. The writ of mandamus was denied on May 23, 2014.
On November 18, 2013, the Court requested both parties to submit
briefs in support of their respective positions. The question
before the Court is whether to refer the case to the bankruptcy
court or to keep it in the District Court.

"The Court does not find that the Bankruptcy Court has
jurisdiction over this matter," District Judge Richard G. Andrews
said in his July 18, 2014 memorandum opinion, a copy of which is
available at http://is.gd/VcbXskfrom Leagle.com.

"The claims asserted by the Plaintiffs do not bear a "close nexus"
to Visteon's bankruptcy proceedings," he added. "Further, as
repeatedly recognized by courts in the Third Circuit, neither
parties nor the bankruptcy court can create jurisdiction where it
does not already exist by statute. . . . the [District] Court will
retain jurisdiction over this case."

According to Judge Andrews, the Court need not address the
Michigan Court's decision to reject the Defendants' res judicata
claim.  "There is nothing in Third Circuit case law to support a
reversal of the Michigan Court's decision," he concluded.

WYNDHAM VACATION: Court Tosses Motion to Remand "Yaeger" Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
EARNEST W. YAEGER, JR., individually and as Trustee of the Earnest
W. Yaeger, Jr. Revocable Living Trust, Plaintiff, v. WYNDHAM
VACATION RESORTS, INC., and WYNDHAM VACATION OWNERSHIP Defendants,
CASE NO. 4:14-CV-795-JCH, (E.D. Mo.) is before the Court on Mr.
Yaeger's Motion to Remand, which he filed on May 23, 2014.
Defendants Wyndham Vacation Resorts (WVR) and Wyndham Vacation
Ownership (WVO) filed a response on June 2, 2014. Mr. Yaeger has
filed no reply, and the time to do so has expired.

For this reason, District Judge Jean C. Hamilton denied Mr.
Yaeger's Motion to Remand.

"Yaeger initially pursued remedies against Defendants in a federal
court based on substantially similar allegations. Therefore,
Yaeger clearly believed at some point that his cause of action
against Defendants is worth more than $75,000. While that case was
dismissed for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction, its dismissal
was based on a pleading failure rather than on a substantive
failure. Further, Yaeger at no point in the briefing of this
Motion contends that the amount in controversy is below $75,000.
Rather, his only contention is that the issue has been foreclosed
by an earlier proceeding. This is a conspicuous omission in the
context of a motion for remand in which the primary dispute is the
sufficiency of the amount-in-controversy allegations. These
actions, even in combination, would not in themselves be a
sufficient basis on which to determine whether the amount-in-
controversy threshold has been crossed. But when viewed in light
of the pleadings in the case, they lend a great deal of weight to
Defendants' contention that the amount in controversy here exceeds
$75,000," ruled Judge Hamilton.

available at http://is.gd/R6VPXtfrom Leagle.com.


* Connecticut Hospital Reports 50% Drop in Malpractice Claims
-------------------------------------------------------------
According to Todd Gurney of The Eisen Law Firm Co., L.P.A., a
study by Yale School of Medicine researchers published in the
American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology showed that a
Connecticut hospital saw a 50% drop in obstetric malpractice
liability claims and payments when it made patient safety
initiatives a priority.

By training doctors and nurses to improve teamwork and
communication, and standardizing practices, the hospital found a
50% reduction in liability claims.  In addition, the hospital
found that the payments made for these liability claims decreased
95% -- from over $50 million to under $3 million.

More importantly, the hospital found that the safety-improvement
program reduced the amount and severity of bad outcomes for
patients, and created an improved culture of safety on obstetrical
units.

This is not surprising.  When patient safety takes priority over
hospital profits, it results in better outcomes for patients.
This, in turn, results in fewer liability claims.  And the icing
on the cake for the hospitals is the drastic reduction in the
amount of liability payments.  In the end, focusing on patient
safety is a "win-win" for patients and hospitals -- patients
receive better care, and hospitals end up paying far less for
liability claims.


* Newman Gov't Mulls Class Action Legislation in Queensland
-----------------------------------------------------------
Rae Wilson, writing for Coolum News, reports that a compensation
lawyer says there is a pressing need to change state legislation
to allow class action lawsuits -- such as flood claims -- to be
filed in Queensland.

Bennett and Philp Lawyers director Mark O'Connor said it was a sad
reflection on this state that the 4000 Brisbane and Ipswich
residents and businesses claiming damages from the Queensland
government and water agencies Seqwater and Sunwater for the 2011
floods had to be filed in the New South Wales Supreme Court.

APN understands the Newman Government is considering whether to
introduce legislation to allow class actions to be heard in
Queensland.

Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie said he was always happy to
consider "any suggestions that would make access to justice fairer
and easier".

"I am consulting with the legal community about what improvements
can be made," he said.

The flood action argues much of the flood damage was preventable
or would have been significantly less if dam engineers had better
managed Wivenhoe and Somerset dam releases.

No specific dollar figures have been linked to what is believed to
be Australia's largest class action but media reports have
estimated it at between $1 billion and $2 billion.

Mr. O'Connor said sending that case to NSW denied Queensland the
economic benefits -- millions of dollars -- of running such
actions here.

"The cost of running the action will run into the millions
including the cost of the employment of secretaries, clerks, other
administration staff and legal counsel and witnesses, air fares
and accommodation, meals and so on," he said.

"This is not about encouraging class action suits because they are
expensive to run, but the way the law now stands, it discriminates
against any Queensland-based firm running an action because the
system favors only nationally-based firms."

Mr. O'Connor said the current law also meant Queensland's courts
and judges were denied the opportunity to consider significant and
complex legal issues within their own state.

"A sophisticated and expensive new courts complex has been
constructed in Brisbane with state of the art court technology but
the revenue which significant legal actions could bring to
Queensland is lost because we can't file a class action suit
here," he said.
