Carlene M. Craig, Leo Rittenhouse, Jeff Bramlage, Lawrence
Liable, and Kent Whistler, Appellants, v. FedEx Ground Package
System, Incorporated, No. 108,526 (Kan.).

          FedEx Ground Package System, Inc. misclassified its
          delivery truck drivers as independent contractors, the
          Supreme Court of the State of Kansas said, holding
          that FedEx drivers are employees as a matter of law
          under the Kansas Wage Payment Act, K.S.A. 44-313 et
          seq., and a plaintiff driver does not lose his or her
          employee status by acquiring another route for which
          that plaintiff is not the driver.  Given that the
          certified class only includes full-time drivers, the
          Kansas Supreme Court declined to opine on a driver's
          status with respect to any assigned service area for
          which he or she is not a full-time driver.

Dart Cherokee Basin Operating Company, LLC, et al., Petitioners,
v. Brandon W. Owens, No. 13-719 (U.S.)

          The U.S. Supreme Court decided, 5-4, that when a
          plaintiff's complaint does not state the amount in
          controversy, the defendant's notice of removal may do
          so, and the defendant need not incorporate into the
          removal notice any evidentiary support.  The Supreme
          Court reversed the opinion of the U.S. Court of Appeals
          for the Tenth Circuit.

          Brandon W. Owens filed a putative class action in Kansas
          state court alleging that Dart Cherokee Basin Operating
          Company, LLC, and Cherokee Basin Pipeline, LLC underpaid
          royalties owed to putative class members under certain
          oil and gas leases.  The plaintiffs did not seek a
          specific damage amount, but Dart Cherokee claimed it
          would far exceed $5 million.

          Decided: December 15, 2014

          Hon. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg delivered the opinion,
          in which the Hon. Chief Justice John Roberts and the
          Hon. Justices Stephen Breyer, Samuel Alito, and Sonia
          Sotomayor joined.  The Hon. Justice Antonin Scalia
          filed a dissenting opinion, in which the Hon. Justices
          Anthony Kennedy and Elena Kagan joined, and in which
          the Hon. Justice Clarence Thomas joined as to all but
          the final sentence.  Justice Thomas filed a dissenting
          opinion.

Halliburton Co., et al., Petitioners v. Erica P. John Fund,
Inc., fka Archdiocese of Milwaukee Supporting Fund, Inc., No.
13-317 (U.S.).

          The U.S. Supreme Court agrees with Halliburton that
          defendants should at least be allowed to defeat the
          presumption at the class certification stage through
          evidence that the misrepresentation did not in fact
          affect stock price.  In doing so, the Supreme Court
          overturned the presumption of reliance in Basic Inc.
          v. Levinson, 485 U.S. 224, 108 S.Ct. 978, 99 L.Ed.2d
          194 (1988).

          Erica P. John Fund is the lead plaintiff in a putative
          class action against Halliburton and one of its
          executives alleging violations of section 10(b) of the
          Securities Exchange Act of 1934, 48 Stat. 891, 15 U.S.C.
          Sec. 78j(b), and Securities and Exchange Commission Rule
          10b-5, 17 CFR Sec. 240.10b-5 (2013).

          Decided: June 23, 2014

          Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the opinion.

Mississippi, ex rel. Jim Hood, Attorney General, Petitioner
v. AU Optronics Corporation, et al., No. 12-1036 (U.S.)

          The U.S. Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision,
          reversed a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the
          Fifth Circuit, holding that the "mass action" provision
          under the Class Action Fairness Act did not provide for
          jurisdiction over a parens patriae suit filed by the
          attorney general of Mississippi.  Because the State of
          Mississippi is the only named plaintiff in the action,
          the case must be remanded to state court.

          The State of Mississippi sued manufacturers of liquid
          crystal displays in state court, alleging they had
          formed an international cartel to restrict competition
          and raise prices in the LCD market.

          Decided: January 14, 2014

          Hon. Justice Sonia Sotomayor delivered the opinion.

Pamela Harris et al., Petitioners v. Pat Quinn, Governor
of Illinois, et al., No. 11-681 (U.S.)

          The case presents the question whether the First
          Amendment permits a State to compel personal care
          providers to subsidize speech on matters of public
          concern by a union that they do not wish to join or

          not, and reversed the judgment of the Court of Appeals.

          Decided: June 30, 2014

          Hon. Justice Samuel Alito delivered the opinion, in
          which Hon. Chief Justice John Roberts, and Justices
          Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kenney, and Clarence joined.
          Hon. Justice Elena Kagan filed a dissenting opinion,
          in which Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer,

Vivendi Canada Inc. v. Dell'Aniello, 2014 SCC 1, [2014] 1
S.C.R. 3

          The Supreme Court of Canada addresses the scope of the
          criteria for the authorization of class actions, in
          particular the criterion of identical questions of
          fact and law set out by article 1003(a) of the Code of
          Civil Procedure (CCP).  According to the Supreme Court,
          the fact that members of the group live in different
          Canadian provinces should not prevent the court from
          authorizing the class action, given that it can accept
          proof of the law applicable in the common law provinces
          or take judicial notice of that law.  Only substantial
          differences between the applicable legal schemes would
          cause the action to lose its collective nature.

          Decided: January 16, 2014

          Judges: The Hon. LeBel, Louis; Abella, Rosalie
          Silberman; Rothstein, Marshall; Cromwell, Thomas Albert;
          Moldaver, Michael J.; Karakatsanis, Andromache; and
