ABBOTT LABORATORIES: BC Court Tosses Weight Loss Drug Class Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Stefania Seccia, writing for Vancouver 24 hrs, reports that a B.C.
Court of Appeal judge struck down a class action lawsuit that
sought damages after a weight loss drug allegedly led to serious
heart problems for those who were prescribed it.

Tony Merchant, one of the lawyers representing the case, said the
decision will either be appealed in the Supreme Court of Canada or
they'll go to another jurisdiction to fight it.

"It's important to these victims that the case allow them access
to the courts in some jurisdiction," he said.  "This is stroke,
arrhythmia, high blood pressure or people dying.  We don't want to
leave these victims without any access for determining the
problems with the drug."

Without the class action lawsuit certification, Mr. Merchant said
it makes it very difficult for the individuals to afford the case.

The six people who stepped forward to take the drug's
distributors, Abbott Laboratories and Apotex, to court all were
prescribed Meridia and later suffered from heart conditions.

Angela Leone was prescribed Meridia in 2006, took it on and off
for a few years until she had a heart attack in 2009.
Mark Mandell also took Meridia in February 2009 and had a heart
attack three months later.  Paula Smith-Turner was given a trial
sample of Meridia in November 2006 and suffered a stroke one month
later.

Sibutramine hydrochloride monohydrate was originally developed as
an antidepressant, but was later found to suppress appetite, which
led to weight loss.

In 2000, Knoll Pharmaceuticals marketed the drug containing
sibutramine as Meridia for use as part of a weight loss regime but
it was available by prescription only. One year later, Abbott
Laboratories acquired Knoll and carried on Meridia's distribution.

In late 2009, when Abbott's exclusivity rights ended, Apotex was
approved by Health Canada to distribute its own version, Apo-
Sibutramine.

In October 2010, Abbott and Apotex withdrew the sibutramine
products from the Canadian market.

AVALONBAY: Edgewater Tenants File Class Action Over Fire
--------------------------------------------------------
James Kleimann, writing for NJ Advance Media, reports that the
devastating 7-alarm inferno that displaced about 1,000 residents
of a luxury apartment building is a direct result of the real
estate company's negligence, alleges a class action lawsuit filed
on Jan. 26 by now-homeless tenants of the Avalon at Edgewater.

The civil lawsuit, filed in Bergen County Superior Court on
Jan. 26, claims hundreds of tenants of the complex, as well as
residents in neighboring homes, suffered economic losses due to
the direct actions of Maryland-based corporate real estate firm
AvalonBay.

Approximately 1,000 people were displaced from their homes as a
result of the roaring fire, half of them permanently.  Many pets
also died in the fire.

"At this point we don't have a specific amount in damages, but
that will come out as the case proceeds," attorney Bruce Greenberg
of Lite Depalma Greenberg told NJ Advance Media.

The plaintiffs are seeking a jury trial, Mr. Greenberg said.

A spokesman for AvalonBay said the company had "no comment at this
time."

Officials claim two AvalonBay maintenance workers accidentally
sparked the spectacular blaze on Jan. 21.  Edgewater police said
the workers were performing plumbing work behind a wall in the
first floor with a blowtorch when the fire sparked.

Avalon's workers didn't call 911 for 15 minutes, officials said.
Within hours, one of the two buildings in the complex had been
reduced to ash.  More than 230 units were destroyed and the fire
smoldered for days.

The class action lawsuit, in arguing negligence on the part of
Avalon and its employees, cites the Edgewater police chief's
statement that the maintenance workers accidentally set the fire.

Employees of AvalonBay also misrepresented the severity of the
fire, the lawsuit claims. At 6:25 p.m., nearly two hours after the
blaze had started, an employee wrote this email to residents:

"Dear Residents,
Due to a minor fire in the Russel Building, the Fire Department
mandated to evacuate the Russel building until further notice. The
Elementary School Eleanor Van Gelder across the street is open for
temporary shelter ,nd shuttle buses to the Community Center are
provided by the entrance to the School. We will try keeping
everyone posted as we receive new information.

Sincerely, Team at Avalon at Edgewater."

Other residents also reported that staff members told residents
that the inferno was "minor," according to the suit.

Because AvalonBay -- a publicly traded real estate company with
274 apartment complexes nationwide and revenues that tallied more
than $1 billion in 2013 -- supervised the construction,
maintenance and operation of the Avalon, it had an obligation to
maintain a certain safety standard, Greenberg argued in the
complaint.

"Defendant owed a duty to perform the construction and maintenance
in a safe, competent and workmanlike manner in order to avoid
damage to property or injury to persons, and to ensure that any
persons to whom it delegated responsibilities did the same," the
litigator from the Newark firm Lite DePalma Greenberg LLC wrote in
the lawsuit.  "Defendant breached its duty of care to Plaintiffs
and Class Members.  Defendant's breach was the direct and
proximate cause of injuries to Plaintiffs and Class Members.

Defendant knew or should have known of the risk of fire during
construction and for maintenance, and knew or should have known
that the risk was increased when using lightweight wood
construction and/or in allowing a blowtorch to be used in close
proximity to these flammable materials."

The plaintiffs also cited statements made by Edgewater
firefighters and other officials who condemned the building's
"lightweight" wood construction, which is cheap to build but more
fire-prone than other accepted construction methods.

"If it was made out of concrete and cinder block, we wouldn't have
this sort of problem," Edgewater Fire Chief Tom Jacobson said at a
press conference on Jan. 22.

The Jan. 21 fire was the second time flames consumed the property
overlooking the Hudson River.

While still under construction in August of 2000, a massive fire
engulfed all four complex buildings in 15 minutes and spread to
surrounding homes, claiming nine modest houses nearby and dozens
of cars.

AvalonBay later paid $6 million in settlements to the homeowners,
the Associated Press reported in 2005. A jury found the company
was negligent and contributed to the fire.

The previous buildings were also made largely of lightweight wood
materials.

Avalon at Edgewater, rebuilt in 2002, cost about $75 million to
build.

AvalonBay's chief construction officer, Michael Feigin, in a
statement called wood-frame construction a "standard, common, and
safe construction method for multifamily housing used throughout
the United States."

Though officials have said the 408-unit building was built to code
and had no outstanding violations, the class action lawsuit filed
on Jan. 26 argues the fire could have been anticipated.

"Defendant's actions and failures to act constitute an intentional
and unreasonable invasion of Plaintiff's and Class Members'
interest in the private use and enjoyment of their property
because Defendant knew or was substantially certain that a fire
was likely to result from its conduct," the complaint states.
"Defendant's conduct is also unreasonable because the gravity of
the potential harm resulting from the fire outweighed any
conceivable utility of Defendant's conduct."

Mr. Greenberg, citing news reports, also alleged in the lawsuit
that the building lacked sprinkler systems between walls and under
the roof, which officials believe accelerated the pace of the
blaze.

AvalonBay has not yet responded to the lawsuit, Mr. Greenberg
said.

The company did, however, require that tenants obtain renter's
insurance as a condition of the lease, according to multiple
sources.

Multiple sources also told NJ Advance Media that AvalonBay has
pro-rated January leases, returned security deposits to
permanently displaced tenants and offered $1,000 to help tenants
find short-term accommodation.

BANK OF NEW YORK: Faces Class Action Over Foreclosure
-----------------------------------------------------
Legal Newsline reports that a U.S Army sergeant filed a class
action lawsuit against the Bank of New York on Jan. 15 after it
allegedly foreclosed and sold her home while she was serving
overseas.

Sgt. Amanda Wensel alleged the bank violated the Servicemembers
Civil Relief Act (SCRA) after it foreclosed on her home while she
was serving in Afghanistan.  The SCRA was intended to limit banks'
ability to foreclose on property owned by active military members,
the suit says.

Sgt. Wensel purchased a home in Pennsylvania in April 2007, but
defaulted on the loan in 2008, according to the lawsuit.

In March 2010, the bank filed an affidavit of non-military service
that alleged St. Wensel was not in the military.  The property was
eventually sold at a foreclosure auction in January 2012.

According to the lawsuit, Sgt. Wensel was deployed in September
2011 to Afghanistan for Operation Enduring Freedom.  It wasn't
until February 2013 when she returned home that she learned the
bank had purchased her property at a foreclosure.

Sgt. Wensel is seeking class status for the suit claiming there
are other servicemembers like herself going through similar
experiences.  Sgt. Wensel is represented by Aurelius P. Robleto --
apr@robletolaw.com -- of Robleto Law, PLLC.

BRADFORD HUEBNER: Court Dismisses Currency Class Action
-------------------------------------------------------
The Toledo Blade reports that a lawsuit filed in 2012 by two Texas
men who had purchased thousands of dollars worth of Iraqi currency
from a Toledo firm has been dismissed in Lucas County Common Pleas
Court.

Thomas Pigott, attorney for plaintiffs John R. Merritt and Arley
G. Lee, had sought to have the case certified as a class-action
lawsuit but said on Jan. 26 that he asked Judge Gene Zmuda to
dismiss the case after three of the defendants --
Bradford Huebner, Charles Emmenecker, and Rudolph Coenen -- were
convicted, sentenced, and ordered to pay more than $800,000 in
restitution for defrauding investors in the currency known as
dinar.

Mr. Huebner, 67, of Ottawa Hills is serving an 87-month prison
sentence.  Mr. Emmenecker, 67, of Sylvania is serving a 33-month
sentence, and Mr. Coenen, 49, of Jacksonville is serving 63
months.


BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB: Sued Over Injuries Caused by Use of Plavix
----------------------------------------------------------------
Drex Mason v. Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Sanofi-Aventis U.S.
LLC, Sanofi US Services Inc., formerly known as Sanofi-Aventis
U.S. Inc., and Sanofi-Synthelabo Inc., Case No. 3:15-cv-00929-FLW-
TJB (D.N.J., February 5, 2015) is an action for damages allegedly
suffered by the Plaintiff as a direct and proximate result of the
Defendants' negligent and wrongful conduct in connection with the
design, development, manufacture, testing, packaging, promoting,
marketing, distribution, labeling, and sale of Plavix.

Mr. Mason contends that the Defendants misrepresented that Plavix
is a safe and effective treatment for the prevention of heart
attacks and strokes, when in fact the drug causes serious medical
problems, including life threatening events due to hemorrhagic
bleeding.

New York-based Bristol-Myers Squibb Company is a pharmaceutical
manufacturing and marketing company that partners with Sanofi-
Aventis to manufacture and market Plavix in the United States.

CALIFORNIA CARTAGE: Faces Class Action Over Unpaid Wages
--------------------------------------------------------
Matthew Bultman, writing for Law360, reports that a truck driver
slapped California Cartage Company LLC with a putative class
action on Jan. 23 in California state court claiming the trucking
and delivery company cheated him and other drivers out of their
fair share of pay by misclassifying them as independent
contractors.

Marin Campos said he was deprived of tens of thousands of dollars
in reimbursements for on the job expenses, including the lease of
a truck, as well as hourly and overtime wages he would have been
entitled to had he been properly classified as an employee,
according to the suit filed in California Superior Court in Los
Angeles County.

"Defendants have engaged in a pattern and practice of
misclassifying their drivers as independent contractors to avoid
the taxes, insurance and other costs that accompany treating
individuals as employees," he said, alleging numerous violations
of state labor laws.

According to the suit, Mr. Campos was hired in 2007 as a delivery
driver for California Cartage Express, a division of the trucking
and delivery company that claims to operate the "largest land
bridge network on the West Coast" with more than 1,200 trucks
throughout the U.S. and Mexico.

Beginning in 2010 and as part of his employment deal, Mr. Campos
said he was required to purchase or lease an LNG-powered truck
through California Cartage, which deducted the vehicle's monthly
payments from his paycheck.  The truck, which came emblazoned with
company decals, was not allowed to be used for any purpose other
than driving for California Cartage, the suit said.

Mr. Campos alleged the company never reimbursed drivers for the
cost of the owning the truck or for expenses they incurred while
on the job, including vehicle repairs and fuel costs.

Additionally, California Cartage didn't provide drivers with meal
or rest breaks and failed to pay them for all hours worked,
including overtime, he said, adding that drivers were paid by the
load and only after the company made unlawful deductions.

By skirting labor laws, California Cartage failed to abide by
policies and practices that bind its competitors, according to the
complaint.

"This creates an unfair competitive advantage for defendants and
therefore constitutes a reason why defendants' practices are
unfair business practice," the suit said.

The reasons surrounding Mr. Campos' departure from the company
were not made clear in the complaint, which said only that his
employment was terminated by California Cartage in October.

He seeks to represent all those who have provided delivery
services for California Cartage Express in the past four years
while being classified as independent contractors. The complaint
estimated the potential class could include "many hundreds" of
people.

Mr. Campos is represented by Robert Bramson and Joshua Boxer of
Bramson, Plutzik, Mahler & Birkhaeuser LLP.

The case is Campos v. California Cartage Company LLC et al, case
number BC570310, in the Superior Court of the State of California,
County of Los Angeles.

CONESYS INC: Faces Class Action Over Unpaid Wages
-------------------------------------------------
Daniel Wilson, writing for Law360, reports that Aerospace and
defense electronics parts maker Conesys Inc. was hit with a
putative class action in California state court on Jan. 23,
accusing it of failing to pay overtime and depriving workers of
required meal and rest breaks.

Conesys and its unit Aero-Electric Connector Inc. have for at
least four years had a "consistent" policy of failing to pay all
wages owing to their California-based employees, as well as
failing to provide meal and rest breaks required under California
state law, according to plaintiff Rafael A. Lozano, a machine
operator at AEC.

"As a result of the defendants' unlawful conduct, plaintiffs and
other members of the . . . class have suffered damages in an
amount subject to proof, to the extent that they were not paid for
all wages earned," Mr. Lozano said.

Torrance, California-based Conesys employs more than 1,000 workers
worldwide, across several facilities located in Torrance, as well
as in Mexico and France, according to the company.  Through its
various subsidiaries, including AEC, it manufactures a range of
connectors and cabling, circuit boards and fiber-optic assemblies,
meant for military, aerospace, commercial and industrial
applications.

For its workers in California, Conesys' common practice is to
unevenly round the amount of time worked, denying them overtime
which would otherwise be owing when they work more than eight
hours in a day or 40 hours in a week, according to the plaintiff.

As well as denying them their rightful overtime pay, this has also
resulted in workers being given inaccurate wage statements and in
some cases being effectively paid below minimum wage, Lozano
alleges.

Also, despite California law obligating employers to provide a
short, paid rest break for shifts of at least four hours, and at
least one uninterrupted 30-minute meal break when employees work a
shift of more than five hours -- two, if the shift runs for longer
than 10 hours -- the company has failed to provide the necessary
breaks, Mr. Lozano said.

While Conesys could have made up for these missed meal breaks by
providing an additional hour of compensation, it did not do that
either, according to the complaint.

The company could and should have made up the difference between
what it paid and what it should have paid when workers quit or
were terminated, paying out the overtime and other extra wages
owed in a final wage payment, but failed to do so, Lozano argued.

Lozano has asked for compensation for missed pay for himself and
other employees allegedly shortchanged by Conesys going back up to
four years, as well as penalties against the company and
"reasonable" attorneys' fees and costs. The size of the potential
class is at least two hundred current and former workers, he
claims.

Mr. Lozano is represented by Michael Nourmand and James A. De
Sario of the Nourmand Law Firm APC.

The case is Lozano et al. v. Conesys Inc. et al., case number
BC570320, in the Superior Court of the State of California, County
of Los Angeles.

FDA analysis found iNDiGO and BtRim Max to contain undeclared
phenolphthalein. The health risks of phenolphthalein could include
potentially serious gastrointestinal disturbances, irregular
heartbeat, and cancer with long-term use. FDA analysis found EDGE
Amplified Weight Release and iNSANE Bee Pollen to contain
undeclared phenolphthalein and fluoxetine. In addition to the
potential adverse health consequences for phenolphthalein, the
concomitant use of fluoxetine with other medications such as MAO-
Inhibitors and serotonin precursors (such as tryptophans) is
either contraindicated or is not recommended. Fluoxetine is an
SSRI with potentially life-threatening side effects that is given
to patients to treat depression, anxiety, panic attacks,
obsessive-compulsive disorder, or bulimia. Even when taken as
prescribed, fluoxetine has been associated with serious side
effects including suicidal thinking, abnormal bleeding, and
seizures. Thus, any adverse reaction that is possible with
fluoxetine is possible with the fluoxetine-containing dietary
supplement product. In patients on other medications for common
conditions (aspirin, ibuprofen, or other drugs for depression,
anxiety, bipolar illness, blood clots, chemotherapy, heart
conditions, and psychosis), ventricular arrhythmia or sudden death
can occur with concomitant use of fluoxetine. FDA analysis found
AMPD Gold Bee Pollen to contain undeclared sildenafil which has
the potential to interact with medications. Males taking nitrates
are at risk for life threatening hypotensive events. Certain
medications such as ritonavir, ketoconazole, and itraconazole as
well as consuming substantial amounts of alcohol can increase the
effects of sildenafil.

The products were distributed nationwide via the internet and
retail stores. No illnesses have been reported to date with the
use of these products.

Detox Transforms has ceased distribution of the products as the
company is working in close cooperation with the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) to fully resolve this issue. Detox
Transforms is notifying its distributors and customers by email,

INTUITIVE SURGICAL: Faces Class Action Over Da Vinci Robot
----------------------------------------------------------
Katarina Siegfeld, writing for Injury Lawyer News, reports that a
da Vinci robot class action lawsuit was filed on October 3, 2014
concerning injuries that plaintiffs had suffered while undergoing
surgery in which the device was used.  The complaint, filed in the
U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida,
Tallahassee Division, states that while the da Vinci robot system
has been marketed as safe, it actually has resulted in many
complications due to malfunctioning equipment and inadequate
training for surgeons.

The complaint elaborates that marketing material regarding the
da Vinci robot system, a surgeon-controlled set of four robotic
arms holding an endoscopic camera and surgical tools, make several
claims about the device in comparison to more traditional open
surgery.

They list the following advantages:

A shorter hospital stay
Less blood loss
Fewer complications
Less need for narcotic pain medicine
A faster recovery
Smaller incisions for minimal scarring

Although the plaintiffs included in the class action lawsuit
underwent different procedures and experienced life-threatening
complications, all found that the da Vinci system did not deliver
on these promises.  Had they known about mounting evidence
regarding the system's flaws, they would not have opted for its
use during their respective procedures.

Already, individual lawsuits regarding the da Vinci robot have
resulted in a $7.5 million jury verdict and two out of court
settlements regarding undisclosed sums.

Injuries suffered by plaintiffs in da Vinci robot class action
lawsuit

Examples of complications allegedly suffered by plaintiffs include
the following:

A plaintiff who underwent a radical da Vinci prostatectomy
experienced bladder neck obstruction, continued urinary
incontinence, slowing and hesitancy of urinary stream, interrupted
stream, and urinary frequency.

A plaintiff who underwent a hysterectomy found that she had
difficulty breathing, eye damage, and severe muscle pain in the
wake of the surgery.

A plaintiff who had a colectomy had complications that included
bowel injury, and ileus and rectal

A plaintiff who had a TVR via right thoracotomy experienced
respiratory failure, HD instability, portal vein thrombosis with
elevated bilirubin, and finally, death.

In each case, plaintiffs certainly found that they did not
experience "fewer complications" or a "faster recovery."  Such
injuries are in accord with the thousands of others that have been
reported since the device was cleared by the FDA in 2000.  In
other cases, the da Vinci robot has reportedly hit the patient in
the head, refused to let go of small tissue, and otherwise
malfunctioned so as to cause nicks or burns in blood vessels or
organs that have led to pain and discomfort, serious
complications, and death.

Studies cast doubt on safety of the da Vinci robot

Multiple studies have cast doubt on the safety of da Vinci
surgery.  An example included in the complaint for the class
action lawsuit was a study published in the New England Journal of
Medicine on July 24, 2014, which compared outcomes for robot-
assisted vs. traditional surgery.  The study comes out "against a
large benefit of robotic techniques with respect to perioperative
morbidity."

The complaint also cites a study discussed in the Wall Street
Journal in which the benefits of such robotic devices for bladder
cancer surgery are cast in doubt.


JJ FUD: Recalls Pet Food Products Due to Listeria Monocytogenes
---------------------------------------------------------------
J.J. Fuds in Valparaiso, IN is expanding their recall to include
all lots and products of J.J. Fuds Chicken Tender Chunks, Beef
Tender Chunks and Duckling Tender Chunks Pet Food because it has
the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and
or Salmonella, organisms which can cause serious and sometimes
fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and
others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals
may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe
headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria
infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant
women. Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there
is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products,
especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after
having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these
products.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves
for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting,
diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely,
Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial
infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation,
and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after
having contact with this product should contact their healthcare
providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea
or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only
decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but
otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or
humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has
these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian."

Animals' ill with Listeria or Salmonella will display symptoms
similar to the ones listed above for humans. People who have
concerns about whether their pet has Listeria or Salmonella should
contact their veterinarian.

The recalled products were distributed regionally in Minnesota,
Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana and Illinois to wholesale and retail
customers. The product can be identified by the batch ID code
(manufactured date) and UPC code printed on the back of the
individual plastic bag or on the master case label. These products
are a frozen raw poultry or beef product (see Safe Handling
Instructions on package) and have a shelf life of one year if kept
frozen.

The recalled products are as follows:

   --- J. J. Fuds Premium Natural Blends; Chicken Tender Chunks,
       5 lb. bags,   Product UPC Number: 654592-345935
       Manufacture/Lot Code Date: All

       Manufacture/Lot Code Date: All
       10 lb. bags, Product UPC Number: 654592-345737
       Manufacture/Lot Code Date: All

The recall was a result of a routine sampling program by the
Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development resulting
in a positive test for Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella. The
company has not received any reports to date of dogs experiencing
nausea and diarrhea that may be associated with these specific
products. The company has received no reports to date of human
illness as a result of these products.

J.J. Fuds, Inc. will immediately start working with distributors
and retailers to properly dispose of any affected product left on
freezer shelves. The company will also be working with
distributors and retailers to recall this product from pet owners
to ensure the proper disposal of any affected product that has
been purchased.

Not all products tested positive but J.J.Fuds is issuing this
action out of an abundance of caution and sincerely regrets any
inconvenience to pet owners as a result of this announcement.

The recalled products should not be sold or fed to pets. Pet
owners who have the affected product at home should return to
retailer for a refund and proper disposal. Consumers should be
very careful in handling the recalled product to prevent the
spread of contamination. Use a sealed bag or container when
returning to the store for a refund.

JOURNAL COMMUNICATIONS: Milberg LLP Files Securities Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Milberg LLP on Jan. 26 disclosed that it filed a class action in
the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin
(Case No: 2:15-cv-00012) against Journal Communications, Inc. and
its board of directors alleging breach of fiduciary duties and
violations of sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934, and Rule 14a-9 promulgated thereunder, in connection
with the dissemination of a false and misleading registration
statement relating to the proposed merger between Journal and The
E.W. Scripps Company.

On July 30, 2014, Journal and Scripps announced a Definitive
Agreement and Plan of Merger, pursuant to which they agreed to
merge their broadcast operations and spin off and then merge their
newspapers, creating two separately traded public companies.
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Journal Class A and Class B
stockholders will receive 0.5176 shares of Scripps Class A common
stock and 0.1950 shares in the new resulting newspaper company
Journal Media Group for each share of Journal stock owned.  Upon
consummation of the Proposed Transaction, Journal stockholders
will reportedly own approximately 31% of Scripps' total shares,
while Scripps will reportedly own approximately 69%.

Thereafter, on November 20, 2014, the defendants caused a
registration statement on Form S-4 to be filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission, recommending that Journal stockholders
vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction.  As Milberg's complaint
alleges, the Registration Statement misstates and/or omits
material information concerning, including, at a minimum:  (1)
information concerning conflicts of interest and the flawed and
unfair process leading to the Proposed Transaction; (2)
information necessary to render complete, fair, and accurate the
fairness opinions and analyses related thereto issued by the
parties' financial advisors (Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and
Methuselah Advisors, LLC) in connection with the Proposed
Transaction; and (3) information concerning certain projections
and their impact on the fairness of the Proposed Transaction to
Journal's stockholders.

If you are a holder of Journal common stock and wish to serve as
lead plaintiff, you may, no later than March 9, 2015, request that
the Court appoint you lead plaintiff.  A lead plaintiff is a class
member that directs the litigation.  Your share in any recovery
will not be affected by serving as a lead plaintiff.  You do not
need to be a lead plaintiff to recover.  You may retain Milberg
LLP, or other attorneys, for this action, but do not need to
retain counsel to recover.  If this action is certified as a class
action, class members will be automatically represented by Court-
appointed counsel.

KBR INC: Investors Seek Dismissal of Securities Class Action
------------------------------------------------------------
Matt Sharp and Rebecca McCray, writing for Law360, report that a
group of investors on Jan. 23 urged a Texas federal judge to deny
KBR Inc.'s bid to nix a class action alleging securities fraud
over its restated 2013 earnings, rejecting the contractor's claim
that it did not intentionally mislead investors.

In a motion before U.S. District Judge Lee H. Rosenthal, lead
plaintiff Arkansas Public Employees Retirement System and other
investors said their complaint establishes scienter, or intent or
knowledge of wrongdoing, alleging KBR's false assurances over its
financial statements and errors in overstating net income and
falsely reporting profits support the claim.

"The only issue is whether the complaint adequately alleges
scienter.  The complaint contains a host of allegations that ...
establish a strong inference of 'severe recklessness' at minimum,"
the brief said.  "In response to these compelling facts,
defendants misstate the law, ignore the complaint and manufacture
their own version of events that cannot be accepted as a matter of
law."

KBR told Judge Rosenthal in December that it was in the process of
a share buyback at the time of the misstatement, and its failure
to include over $150 million in pretax charges resulting from
troubled Canadian contracts was not premeditated or fraudulent in
nature.

To begin a share buyback program during the class period, when
plaintiffs allege the price of the company's stock was inflated,
would be "economically irrational," KBR argued in its motion to
dismiss.  This illogical action, it contended, negates the
possibility that the defendants could have intentionally mislead
investors.

But plaintiffs rejected that argument in the Jan. 23 brief, saying
the buyback program does not negate scienter and that the
announcement itself was suspicious.

"There was no need for KBR to announce a 'new' repurchase plan in
February 2014, as it already had one that was not set to expire.
Further, KBR announced its repurchase program days before [former
CEO William Utt] engaged in his sell-off and on the same day that
KBR announced its first material weakness, which caused its stock
price to decline," the brief said.

The trouble for KBR investors began with the misrepresentation of
troubled contracts managed by its Canadian subsidiary, KBR
Industrial Canada Co.  The company repeatedly showcased its
Canadian business during investor conferences in 2013, as
misinformed analysts touted its "strong growth," according to the
plaintiffs' complaint.

By underestimating the value of its contracts, plaintiffs say KBR
inflated its stock value, which dropped by nearly 7 percent after
the company rescinded its 2013 earnings statement.

Arkansas Public Employees Retirement System, a public pension fund
that purchased 79,700 shares of the former Halliburton Co.
subsidiary's stock, is joined by numerous workers' unions as well
as nonunion investors in a class estimated to include hundreds of
thousands of members.

Plaintiffs are represented by Thomas Robert Ajamie of Ajamie LLP
and Laura Asserfea, Avi Josefson, John Rizio-Hamilton and Gerald
Silk -- jerry@blbglaw.com -- of Bernstein Litowitz Berger &

KOREAN FOOD: Recalls Soybean Sprout Due to Listeria Monocytogenes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Korean Food Co. of Irving Texas is recalling 8 boxes of (20 bag in
each box) Go-Hang Soybean sprouts in 1 lb. and 2 lb. plastic bags
and eight 10 lb. black plastic bags distributed Jan 30, 2015 - Feb
6, 2015 because they have the potential to be contaminated with
Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and
sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly
people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy
individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high
fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and
diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and
stillbirths among pregnant women.

The soybean sprouts were distributed to KO-MART in Dallas and H-
MART in Plano and Carrollton retail stores in Texas.

   --- 1LB SOYBEAN SPROUT BAR CODE - 42053-12100
   --- 2LB SOYBEAN SPROUT BAR CODE - 42053-13650
   --- 10LB SOYBEAN SPROUT BAR CODE - 42053-13690

No illnesses that have been reported to date.

The recall was the result of a routine sampling program by the FDA
which revealed that the finished products contained the bacteria.
The company has ceased the production and distribution of the
product as FDA and the company continues their investigation as to
what caused the problem.

Consumers who have purchased Korean Food Co. Soybean Sprouts in
1lb. and 2lb. plastic bags and 10lb. black plastic bags are urged
to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 213-500-1893,

LANDS' END: Seeks Dismissal of "Made In USA" Class Action
---------------------------------------------------------
Jonathan Randles, writing for Law360, reports that Lands' End Inc.
on Jan. 26 moved to end a proposed class action in California
accusing the clothing retailer of inflating prices on its clothes
by labeling foreign-made apparel as produced in the U.S., arguing
that the plaintiff can't show she paid more than she would have
because she thought the clothes were made domestically.

In a motion to dismiss the complaint, Lands' End argues named
plaintiff Elaine Oxina, who bought a necktie at the retailer,
lacks standing to pursue her claims against the business.  Among
the problems with Oxina's complaint, the company says, are that
she fails to show she suffered "economic injury" by purchasing the
necktie or that she relied solely on its 'Made in USA' label when
she decided to buy it.

"The allegation that plaintiff's decision to purchase the necktie
was 'supported by' the 'Made in USA' representation is, at most,
an allegation of motive or reason, not causation," Lands' End said
in its motion.  "Plaintiff's purchase decision could have been
'supported by' numerous considerations and absent an allegation
that the alleged misrepresentation was the decisive 'support' for
her decision to buy, plaintiff has not alleged that she would not
otherwise have purchased the necktie.  For the same reason, the
conclusory allegation that plaintiff's purchasing decision
'relied' upon the alleged misrepresentation is not the necessary
factual 'but for' allegation."

The lawsuit was filed in October and seeks to represent a
nationwide class and statewide classes of Lands' End customers who
purchased the company's apparel under the allegedly false pretense
that the items were manufactured and contained material produced
in the U.S.

Ms. Oxina, a San Diego resident, claims she purchased a necktie
from Lands' End's online store in August under the assumption that
the product was produced domestically.  According to the
complaint, the necktie "was described using the 'Made in U.S.A.'
country of origin designation, when the product actually was made
and/or contained component parts made outside of the United
States."

The lawsuit says that an inspection of a fabric tag attached to
the necktie revealed that the item "is wholly made" in China.  The
complaint asserts claims against Lands' End for false advertising
and violations of California's business code, adding that the
alleged damages are in excess of $5 million.

Lands' End is one of several retailers who have been hit with
"Made in USA" suits.  Macy's Inc., Nordstrom Inc. and grocery
chain Trader Joe's Co. are all facing similar lawsuits.

Ms. Oxina is represented by Abbas Kazerounian and Mona Amini of
Kazerouni Law Group APC.

Lands' End is represented by Robert Herrington --
herringtonr@gtlaw.com -- and Francis Citera -- citeraf@gtlaw.com
-- of Greenberg Traurig LLP.

The case is Elaine Oxina v. Lands' End Inc., case number 3:14-cv-
02577, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of
California.

MICHIGAN: Former Care Aids Mull Wrongful Termination Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Josh Sidorowicz, writing for Fox17, reports that, fired from their
jobs over allegations of assaulting a patient, several former care
aids from the Kalamazoo Psychiatric Hospital say they are moving
closer to filing a class action lawsuit against the State of
Michigan for what they claim was wrongful termination.

There are several alleged incidents dating back several months
involving just one patient at the hospital.  The patient, a man in
his 30s, is one former employee Mike Fitzgerald claims had a
history of combative and assaultive behavior.  In June of 2014,
the patient in question suffered a broken arm, an injury
Fitzgerald says was a result of care directives handed down from
and approved by the state.

"Everybody saw it, upper management, the Office of Recipient
Rights, everyone who came on that unit saw us manually restraining
him by doctor's order and approved it," he told FOX 17.

Mr. Fitzgerald, who was terminated from the facility in January,
said doctors had advised the care workers to only restrain the
patient manually, not to use a 4-point restraint.  Those
directives resulted in numerous employee injuries, according to
Fitzgerald who says the state is using the employees as
'scapegoats' in this situation.

"The state is not listening to us, we have documentation showing
they let this happen," he said.

An email provided to FOX 17 by Fitzgerald from May 2014, sent
between a supervisor at the hospital and several administrators
within the Michigan Department of Community Health, shows staff at
the hospital had attempted to warn the state of the patient's
behavior leading up to the June 2014 incident.

Mr. Fitzgerald said the email is one of many documents showing the
state failed to address the concerns.

"We had numerous staff meetings to discuss [the patient's] care
and the danger he posed to everyone involved," the email said.

"Staff frequently voiced their concerns to the doctors and
management of KPH.  Our concerns were not heeded or addressed."

In October, Jennifer Smith a spokesperson for the Michigan
Department of Community Health told FOX 17 there was a "culture
problem" at the hospital, which included an issue with employee
attitudes.

Ms. Smith told FOX 17 by email on Jan. 26 the department had not
yet been served with any lawsuit from the employees and as a
department does not comment on any potential or pending
litigation.

Meantime, Mr. Fitzgerald said he wants to see the state take some
responsibility.

"We want the people responsible for this huge controversy to be
brought up to find out who is accountable for this, the state took
advantage of us over the situation and are blaming us for the
whole thing, " he said.

"We want a totally transparent investigation, we have
documentation showing what happened, the whole truth is available
in print."

NAT'L COLLEGIATE: March 17 Oral Argument Set in O'Bannon
--------------------------------------------------------
Steve Berkowitz, writing for USA TODAY, reports that oral argument
in the NCAA's appeal of the Ed O'Bannon class-action antitrust
lawsuit have been set for March 17 in San Francisco, according to
an order posted Monday by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The date -- the first night of the NCAA tournament First Four --
is even earlier than the one the NCAA had sought in a joint motion
it filed with the plaintiffs last September.  At that time, the
NCAA had asked for oral argument to be set for a date in April or
May, with the hope that the appellate court would rule before
Aug. 1, when U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken's injunction in
the case is scheduled to take effect.

The Jan. 26 order said each side will be allotted 30 minutes
before judges Sydney R. Thomas, the circuit's chief judge; Jay S.
Bybee and Gordon J. Quist.  That is the longest oral argument
period mentioned in the 9th's Circuit's guidelines for attorneys,
which state: "Cases scheduled for oral argument will be assigned
10, 15, 20, or occasionally 30 minutes per side."

On Jan. 22, the 9th Circuit issued an order that revealed the case
is now under the jurisdiction of those three judges, who ruled 2-1
against one of the NCAA's former co-defendants in what the 9th
U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has decided is a "related case."

The 9th Circuit's ruling in that case -- which involved video game
manufacturer Electronic Arts and former Arizona State and Nebraska
football player Sam Keller -- was labeled as erroneous by the NCAA
in its opening brief for the O'Bannon appeal, which it filed in
November.

The O'Bannon plaintiffs filed their answer, and the NCAA has until
Feb. 11 to submit a reply.

In the Keller case, Judge Bybee and Judge Quist rejected EA
Sports' bid to strike a complaint filed on behalf of Keller, who
had alleged that EA illegally used his likeness in the NCAA
Football game.  Saying that the game was not protected under the
First Amendment as an artistic creation, they sent the Keller case
back to a district court.  Judge Bybee wrote the opinion, Thomas a
dissent.

The NCAA's interest in the ruling stems from the O'Bannon
plaintiffs' claim that the association violated antitrust law by
limiting what Bowl Subdivision football and Division I men's
basketball players can receive for playing sports and for the use
of the names, images and likenesses in in live television
broadcasts, rebroadcasts of games and video games.

In its initial written argument in support of the O'Bannon appeal,
the NCAA said Judge Bybee and Judge Quist ruled "erroneously" in
the Keller case, contradicting "settled First Amendment doctrine"
that allows expressive use of realistic images.  The NCAA added
that it "preserves this argument for (full 9th Circuit) or Supreme
Court review."

The NCAA also argues that the First Amendment -- combined with
various laws and court rulings -- prohibits athletes from claiming
that they are entitled to compensation for the use of their names,
images and likenesses in live telecasts because the telecasts
constitute news coverage.

At the time of the 9th Circuit's ruling against EA, the Keller
case and the O'Bannon case had been consolidated at the district
court level even though the Keller case did not involve antitrust
issues and was progressing at a slower pace than was the O'Bannon
case because of EA's appeal. (The NCAA and the nation's leading
collegiate trademark licensing and marketing firm, Collegiate
Licensing Co., also were defendants in the Keller case, but the
First Amendment issue and others involved in that appeal related
to EA's role, so it pursued the appeal.)

The Keller case and some video game-related issues in the O'Bannon
case eventually reached preliminary settlements, removing EA and
CLC from the action, but the NCAA continued to cite the First
Amendment as a reason it should prevail in the O'Bannon case,
which went to trial this past summer.

Judge Wilken ended up ruling in favor of the O'Bannon plaintiffs.
She determined that NCAA rules limiting athletes to scholarships
basically comprising tuition, fees, room, board and books violate
antitrust laws and she ordered the creation of a system under
which Bowl Subdivision football and Division I men's basketball
players would be able to receive not only scholarships covering
their full cost of attending school but also what amounts to
deferred compensation in exchange for their participation and the
schools' use of their names, images and likenesses.

David J. Madden, the assistant circuit executive for the 9th
Circuit Madden said in an e-mail on Jan. 23 that the O'Bannon case
"was offered and accepted by the Keller panel as a comeback case
under the court's" general rules.

Mr. Madden wrote that the rules define a comeback case as one
"involving substantially the same parties and issues from which
there had previously been a calendared appeal or opinion."

He added: "The purpose of this practice is to conserve judicial
resources by assigning related cases to a panel already having
substantial understanding of the underlying facts of the case.
O'Bannon and the (NCAA) are parties in both cases, which also
involve the same video games. The two cases were so closely
related that they were originally consolidated at the district
court for purposes of pretrial proceedings."

Judge Bybee and Judge Thomas are members of the 9th Circuit, with
Thomas the chief judge.  Judge Quist is a senior district judge in
the Western District of Michigan who was temporarily assigned to
the 9th Circuit for the Keller case; such assignments are allowed
when judicial need arises.

University of San Diego law professor Shaun Martin, an expert on
9th Circuit matters.  Mr. Martin said it is unusual for the court
to determine on its own that one case is related to a prior case
and for the same panel of judges to assume jurisdiction over the
subsequent case.  Usually, Mr. Martin said, such determinations
are made after a request by one of the sides. No such requests
have been recorded in the 9th Circuit's list of filings in the
O'Bannon case.

"With run-of-the-mill cases, no one around even remembers (what
might be) a related case," Mr. Martin said.  "This ain't a run-of-
the-mill case."

Mr. Martin said that the NCAA's specific assertions about Judge
Bybee's Keller appeal opinion won't help its cause in the O'Bannon
case, but the bigger issue is that the three judges "already have
expressed their opinions in a related case."

But Martin also cautioned that the NCAA's appeal of Judge Wilken's
ruling primarily focuses on other issues -- Judge Wilken's refusal
to follow a 1984 Supreme Court ruling that the NCAA has relied
upon to preserve its amateurism system and her injunction's
specific reach into NCAA rules-making.

Thomas, the judge who favored EA in the Keller appeal, wrote as
part of the reason for dissent that for a variety of legal reasons
"an individual college athlete's right of publicity is
extraordinarily circumscribed and, in practical reality, non-
existent."

However, he added in a footnote: "The issue of whether this
structure is fair to the student athlete is beyond the scope of
this appeal, but forms a significant backdrop to the discussion."
He cited the NCAA's hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue and
that vast majority of comes from "television and marketing fees.
However, few college athletes will ever receive any professional
compensation. . . . And participation in college football can come
at a terrible cost.  The NCAA reports that, during a recent five-
year period, college football players suffered 41,000 injuries,
including 23 non-fatal catastrophic injuries and 11 (fatalities)
from indirect catastrophic injuries."


NAT'L COLLEGIATE: Edelson Attempts Again to Lead Concussion Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Jon Solomon, writing for CBSSports.com, reports that an attorney
who opposes the NCAA's proposed class-action concussion settlement
is trying again to become lead counsel for the case's personal-
injury claims now that a judge initially denied the $75 million
settlement.

Attorney Jay Edelson, who represents former San Diego State
football player Anthony Nichols as a plaintiff, filed a motion on
Jan. 26 claiming the lead attorneys in the case have abandoned
personal-injury claims for the class.  U.S. District Judge John
Lee previously denied Mr. Edelson's attempt to be co-lead counsel,
but noted his application could be revisited as the case proceeds.

Mr. Edelson argues circumstances have changed because Steve Berman
and Joseph Siprut, the lead attorneys for the Adrian Arrington
plaintiffs, removed a request for damages in their latest amended
complaint.  Mr. Edelson's motion includes an affidavit of support
from Ramogi Huma, founder of the National College Players
Association (NCPA) and College Athletes Players Association
(CAPA).

The legal maneuvering is another obstacle the NCAA faces as it
tries to broadly settle litigation over how the association has
handled concussions.  Mr. Edelson has said he will soon file
class-action lawsuits against individual universities.

Lee denied preliminary approval of the settlement in December and
encouraged the parties to continue discussions to address his
concerns.  The settlement called for a $70 million fund to test
thousands of current and former athletes, put aside $5 million for
research, and change guidelines for medical care moving forward.

The settlement would cover only diagnostic medical expenses, not
actual treatment -- a criticism that Messrs. Edelson and Huma
share of the proposed deal.  Mr. Huma oversees two player-advocacy
groups, including CAPA, the labor organization that is trying to
form player unions.  Support from the NCPA and CAPA is Mr.
Edelson's attempt to cut into Mr. Berman's past claim that only a
small number of class members oppose the settlement.

"In cases of this significance, there needs to be a strong voice
representing and advocating for the class personal injury claims,"
Mr. Huma said in an affidavit. "Critically, that voice needs to
actually believe in those claims.  Edelson has been the lead voice
on behalf of the class personal injury claims."

Mr. Berman said circumstances have not changed and that this is
Mr. Edelson's third attempt to oversee personal injury claim, with
each attempt "more desperate than the last."

"Edelson claimed that medical monitoring was worthless.  Judge Lee
disagrees and has sent us to do homework for example to have more
testing centers not none," Berman wrote in an email.  "And Edelson
claims are rebutted by 2 former federal judges and (Dr. Robert
Cantu). He has no expert on his claim.

"Edelson claims we left billions on the table.  We proved (this)
was nonsense that there are few cases out there and all are
serious enough that no one would bring (it) as a class.  Edelson
claims there is a need for a (personal) injury class yet his own
client (couldn't) be a class rep because he doesn't suffer from
any concussion injury by his own admission."


NAT'L COLLEGIATE: Student-Athletes Seek Support for Suit
--------------------------------------------------------
WRAL.com reports that two former University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill student-athletes who are suing the school and the NCAA
to ensure other student-athletes receive a proper education took
to Twitter on Jan. 27 to garner support for their case.

"We must stand strong so that we can be seen as more than just
mere athletes," Rashanda McCants, a former UNC basketball player,
wrote in a message posted on the social media website.  "We are
humans; we have voices; and, although we all love our school, we
also love ourselves and the dignity we built within our own
right."

Ms. McCants added that she did everything that was asked of her,
on and off the court.

"But the university and the NCAA failed to keep their promise to
me and other college athletes, and in turn, we seek justice," she
wrote.

Devon Ramsay, a former UNC football player, shared Ms. McCants'
sentiments.

Ms. McCants and Mr. Ramsay filed a 100-page class-action lawsuit
alleging that the NCAA and its member institutions breached their
duties to student-athletes "in spectacular fashion," highlighting
the no-show class scandal at UNC-Chapel Hill.  The suit seeks
educational reforms, including an independent committee in the
NCAA to ensure athletes get a proper education, as well as
financial compensation for the athletes.

"They are making millions and millions of dollars for all of these
colleges, and the question is, what are (the students) entitled to
as part of this scholarship agreement?" said Raleigh attorney
Bob Orr, who is representing the athletes, after the suit was
filed.

Mr. Ramsey was kicked off the football team in 2010 for getting
improper help from a tutor, but was allowed back on the team after
his attorney convinced the NCAA he'd done nothing wrong.

In July, he testified in a U.S. Senate hearing about college
athletics.

"I've come to realize that there's a void in college athletics,"
Ramsey told senators.  "The NCAA, as an institution, no longer
protects the student-athlete.  They're more concerned with signage
and profit margins."

Mr. Ramsey expanded more on those thoughts on Twitter.

"Unfortunately, these aren't just isolated incidents that occurred
at UNC," he wrote.  "This is a national problem, one that
continually surfaces at some of the most prestigious programs in
the country."

Neither UNC nor the NCAA have commented on the lawsuit.


NESTLE PURINA: Faces Class Suit Over Toxic Beneful Brand Dog Food

NEWFOUNDLAND, CANADA: Seeks Mediation in Moose Collision Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Canadian Press reports that lawyers who filed a class-action
lawsuit on behalf of former students of residential schools in
Newfoundland and Labrador say they will try to resolve the dispute
through mediation.

Ches Crosbie, a lawyer representing some of the 1,000 members of
the suit, said that the talks are set to begin June 9.  He said
the decision to join in settlement negotiations came after
discussions with the case management judge.  He said if the
parties agree to a settlement in June, it could take months to
gain court approval and disperse payments.  If it fails, the case
will go to trial next September.  Mr. Crosbie said the trial was
scheduled to start last November, but was adjourned after the
defense requested delays.

The class of mostly Inuit members is suing the federal government
for abuse and neglect members allege they suffered at the
residential schools in the province.  They were excluded from a
compensation package and Prime Minister Stephen Harper's apology
in 2008 after Ottawa denied responsibility for schools that opened
before the province joined Confederation in 1949.

The schools were in St. Anthony, Cartwright, North West River,
Nain and Makkovik.  The International Grenfell Association ran the
first three, while the German-based Moravian Missionaries ran the
other two.

In its statement of defense responding to the claims, the federal
government denies any wrongdoing or responsibility.  It says the
plaintiffs wrongly suggest the Labrador schools were "akin" to now
defunct institutions under the Indian Act that were the subject of
the federal Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement.

That deal, according to the Aboriginal Affairs and Northern
Development Canada website, had paid out about $4 billion in
common experience and independent assessment compensation as of
Dec. 31, 2013.


NISSIN FOODS: Asked to Stop Using Artificial Trans Fat in Noodles

the Defendant to, inter alia: (1) cease using artificial trans fat
as an ingredient in its instant noodle products, and (2) award
Plaintiff and the Class restitution.

Nissin Foods (U.S.A.) Company, Inc. is a California corporation
with its principal place of business in California.  Nissin
manufactures and sells a variety of instant noodle products
containing partially hydrogenated oil, a food additive allegedly

NURSING ENTERPRISES: D.C. Home Health Workers File Class Action
---------------------------------------------------------------
Tina Reed, writing for Washington Business Journal, reports that
home health care workers who sued three D.C. employers for back
pay are now seeking class-action status for what they say could
ultimately grow to a $150 million case.

The workers' bid for class-action status was filed on Jan. 27 in
D.C. Superior Court.  The initial lawsuit was filed in December
and included about 150 home health workers.  Named defendants
include Nursing Enterprises Inc., Vizion One Inc. and Health
Management Inc., the latter of which has filed a motion to dismiss
the case. I am reaching out to each for comment.

If granted, the class-action status would automatically add all
employees at the three home health companies in the three years
since the dispute, unless they opt out, said Sara Faulman, an
attorney representing the workers, who are members of Service
Employees International Union 1199.  The group hopes to also
include other home health care companies they allege didn't pay
employees.

Attorneys believe as many as 6,000 workers could become plaintiffs
in such a class-action suit, thus raising total damages to a
potential $150 million.

Court records show Health Management filed a motion to have the
case dismissed. An official from that company previously told me
HMI "did not reduce or withhold payments from our employees."

According to the lawsuit, the workers claim they were forced to
work without pay following an FBI sting last year that uncovered
$78 million in fraudulent Medicaid billing and rocked the local
home health industry.  That investigation resulted in the
suspension of multiple D.C. Medicaid provider contractors because
D.C.'s Department of Health Care Finance said the allegations were
credible.  Six home health care agencies were ultimately
terminated from the program, including NEI and Vizion.

PACIFIC SEAFOOD: Fishermen Wins Temporary Restraining Order
-----------------------------------------------------------
Derrick DePledge, writing for The Daily Astorian, reports that
commercial fishermen, including a groundfish trawler from Astoria,
have won a temporary restraining order blocking Pacific Seafood
Group's acquisition of Ocean Gold Seafoods, among the largest
seafood processors on the West Coast.

The fishermen allege that the acquisition would increase Pacific
Seafood's monopoly power in the groundfish, whiting and coldwater
shrimp markets in violation of federal antitrust law.

The complaint also claims there is a strong likelihood that
Pacific Seafood will not rebuild a fish processing plant in
Warrenton, lost in a 2013 fire, if it acquires controlling
interest in Ocean Gold.  Pacific Seafood has been leasing space
from the Port of Astoria at Tongue Point since the Warrenton plant
burned down.

"It will be of significant benefit to the competitive health of
the West Coast fishing industry if (Ocean Gold) can be an
independent competitor rather than under the control of Pacific
Seafood through either an exclusive marketing agreement or by
Pacific Seafood Group acquiring it," said Michael Haglund, a
Portland attorney representing the fishermen, including Dennis
Rankin of Rankin Fish in Astoria.

A federal judge in U.S. District Court in Medford issued the
temporary restraining order on Jan. 23 and set a hearing for Feb.
9.

Commercial fishermen had previously filed a class-action lawsuit
against Pacific Seafood that made similar allegations of monopoly
business practices.  A settlement in 2012 included a provision
that Pacific Seafood would not extend an exclusive marketing
agreement with Ocean Gold beyond February 2016.

Daniel Occhipinti, Pacific Seafood's general counsel and director
of government affairs, called the new lawsuit a "frivolous
retread" of the previous suit.  "We expect the complaint will be
dismissed in short order," he said.

Mr. Occhipinti rejected the suggestion that Pacific Seafood might
not rebuild in Warrenton.  "We are as committed to rebuilding in
Warrenton today as we were the day after the tragic fire," he
said.  "It's a complicated process and it's taking much longer
than we would like. But we are committed."

Pacific Seafood, based in Clackamas, is a dominant fish processor
and distributor and also owns a fleet of 13 fishing boats.  Along
with the exclusive marketing agreement with Ocean Gold, Frank
Dulcich, Pacific Seafood's president and chief executive officer,
already holds significant stock in the Westport, Wash., company.

The fishermen claim that Pacific Seafood's dominance has caused a
lack of competition that has led to price suppression.


PFIZER INC: Settles Off-Label Marketing Suit for $400 Million
-------------------------------------------------------------
Nate Raymond, writing for Reuters, reports that Pfizer Inc said on
Jan. 27 it agreed to pay $400 million to avert a trial in a class
action lawsuit accusing the pharmaceutical giant of misleading
investors in connection with off-label marketing.

Pfizer disclosed the agreement-in-principle as it released its
fourth-quarter results. The accord, which must be approved by a
federal judge in Manhattan, came days ahead of a jury trial set
for Feb. 10.

"This resolution reflects a desire by the company to avoid the
distraction of continued litigation and focus on the needs of
patients and physicians," said Christine Regan Lindenbloom, a
Pfizer spokeswoman.

Michael Dowd, a lawyer for the investors at law firm Robbins
Geller Rudman & Dowd, did not respond to requests for comment.

Filed in 2010, the lawsuit accused Pfizer and various executives
of making false statements to shareholders about its off-label
marketing of products, including Bextra and other drugs.

The lawsuit also contended Pfizer made misleading statements about
various government investigations of those practices that led to a
$2.3 billion settlement with the U.S. Justice Department in 2009.

Ms. Lindenbloom, the Pfizer spokeswoman, said the company
continues to deny wrongdoing and believes its disclosures to
investors "were appropriate and prepared in good faith."

U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein had named pension fund
Stichting Philips Pensioenfonds the lead plaintiff and certified a
class of investors who bought Pfizer stock from Jan. 19, 2006 to
Jan. 23, 2009.

Ahead of trial, Pfizer had sought to block jurors from hearing
from the plaintiffs' damages expert, who said the company's stock
had been artificially inflated $1.26 a share over the three-year
period due to misstatements or omissions.

Pfizer last year secured the dismissal of another securities class
action in New York after a different judge precluded the
investors' damages expert.  But earlier in January, Judge
Hellerstein denied Pfizer's motion, allowing the case to move
forward to trial.

The case is Jones v. Pfizer Inc, U.S. District Court, Southern
District of New York, No. 10-03864.

RELIANCE INSURANCE: Court Approves Class Action Settlement
----------------------------------------------------------
The Daily News reports that in the Jan. 14 fairness hearing in the
class action case arising from the Oct. 23, 1995, chemical
explosion and release at the Gaylord Chemical plant explosion in
Bogalusa, the presiding judge, the Hon. Robert Burns, approved a
class settlement with Reliance Insurance Co. in liquidation.

Reliance Insurance Co. was declared insolvent by the Pennsylvania
Commission of Insurance in 2001, and those liquidation proceedings
have continued since that time. Because of the liquidation, claims
against Reliance in the class action case had been prohibited from
going forward.

Under the settlement, class members will participate if they
previously filed a proof of claim form in the class action.  The
settlement provides for an initial payment in the total amount of
approximately $4.9 million on behalf of Reliance.  Funding is
expected by the end of March 2015.  Additional settlement payments
totaling as much as approximately $7.7 million may be received in
the future under the settlement, depending on the assets and
liabilities of Reliance in the Pennsylvania liquidation case.

Dates and amounts of any such future payments are not specified.
The individual amounts to be paid to each class member under the
settlement will be determined after the initial payment of $4.9
million is received -- projected to be in March or April.  Class
members will be advised of individual allocations, and a court-
appointed deputy special master will oversee and manage the
settlement allocation process.

At the Jan. 14 hearing, Burns heard from counsel for the Louisiana
class in Bogalusa's James Farmer, plaintiffs' liaison counsel, and
Gerald Meunier, co-lead counsel the plaintiffs.  Mr. Meunier
argued that the settlement is fair and reasonable to class members
in light of the fact that they are no longer legally able to
pursue their claims in the class action but, absent a settlement,
would have to seek compensation from Reliance through the
liquidation proceedings in Pennsylvania.

"That would require each individual class member to hire counsel,
appear in the Pennsylvania proceedings and present evidence of the
damages claimed," Mr. Meunier said.  "The delays, costs and
uncertainties of this process would make it virtually impossible
for the class members as a whole to obtain justice, other than
through this settlement with Reliance in the class action case."

At the end of the proceeding, Burns agreed that the proposed
settlement was fair and reasonable.  He signed an order giving the
settlement his approval.  That meant that the class action case is
concluded, since all class members against all other defendants
have been resolved under prior class settlements.

"Bringing this case to a final is an important achievement for the
community," Mr. Meunier said.  "The last step in this longstanding
litigation was to settle with the insurance company in
liquidation. Now, at least legally, we've brought closure to the
thousands of individuals who were affected by the chemical
release."

Mr. Farmer reminded all claimants to make sure that their
disbursing agent has their current address.  The office of the
disbursing agent can be reached at 504-840-3850 or 1-877-840-3850.

SAC CAPITAL: Judge Okays Request to Create Compensation Fund
------------------------------------------------------------
Sarah N. Lynch and Nate Raymond, writing for Reuters, report that
a U.S. federal judge has granted a request by securities
regulators to create a $602 million fund to compensate victims of
insider trading at a unit of the hedge fund SAC Capital Advisors.

In an order dated Jan. 23 that was made public late on Jan. 26,
U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero for the Southern District of
New York agreed to the creation of a "fair fund" and appointed a
California-based accounting firm to serve as the fund's tax
administrator.

The judge's decision was widely anticipated after a majority of
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's five members voted
behind closed doors last fall to seek court approval to create the
fund.

The SEC approved it in a split vote, with the agency's two
Republican commissioners dissenting over concerns it might create
a windfall for class action attorneys.

A fair fund is a fund created by the SEC to disburse wrongfully
gained profits and fines collected to investors who were
defrauded.  One researcher at Emory University found that of all
the fair funds ever created by the SEC to compensate insider-
trading victims, this will be the largest in history.

The creation of the fund comes after CR Intrinsic, a unit of SAC,
settled with the SEC in March 2013 after former portfolio manager
Mathew Martoma was caught trading two drug stocks in July 2008
based on secret tips.

SAC has since changed its name to Point 72 Asset Management.


SAFEWAY INC: Seeks Dismissal of Product Recall Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------
Jonathan Randles, writing for Law360, reports that Safeway Inc.
took its latest shot on Jan. 27 to dismiss a proposed class action
in California over tainted eggs and peanut butter products the
grocer was forced to recall, saying records show neither of the
named plaintiffs who have brought the lawsuit bought the items
that were pulled from store shelves.

In a motion for summary judgment, Safeway said plaintiffs Sarah
Duncan and Dee Hensley-Maclean lack standing to pursue claims
against the grocer because records unearthed after years of
litigation show they never purchased recalled products as they had
claimed.  The complaint stems from 2009 recalls of salmonella-
tainted peanut butter crackers and Nutter Butter sandwiches, and a
2010 egg recall.

"After more than three years of litigation, it is now clear that
neither Plaintiff purchased a recalled product from Safeway and
that both Plaintiffs had notice of the recalls," Safeway said.
"Plaintiffs, as a result, do not have standing to pursue this
action since neither suffered any actual injury and certainly not
one fairly traceable to Safeway's purported failure to provide
each of them the kind of individual notice they now seek through
this litigation."

The motion represents the latest attempt by Safeway to escape
litigation over the product recalls.  The lawsuit was filed in
Safeway in February 2011, claiming the grocery chain should have
used customer loyalty card information to contact and inform
shoppers who purchased recalled foods.  Hensley-Maclean of Montana
says she purchased the peanut butter products; Duncan says she
purchased eggs.

Both Hensley-Maclean and Duncan say they used their Safeway Club
Cards when buying the recalled items, which meant that the store
had access to their phone numbers, email and mailing addresses,
yet the retailer did not contact either of them directly about the
recalls.  On Jan. 26, Safeway said product codes connected to the
plaintiffs' Club Cards shows they didn't purchase recalled items.
The company also said both Duncan and Hensley-Maclean were also
contemporaneously aware of the recalls.

Safeway argued that Hensley-Maclean and Duncan lack standing to
pursue their claims against the company.

"First, Plaintiffs did not buy any recalled products," Safeway
said.  "Second, Plaintiffs received notice of the recalls by way
of the news and thus suffered no injury by any purported lack of
additional individual notice from Safeway.  These flaws are fatal
to all of Plaintiffs' claims, no matter the legal theory pled."

Plaintiffs and the proposed class are represented by Stephen
Gardner and Amanda Howell of the Center for Science in the Public
Interest; Daniel T. LeBel of Consumer Law Practice of Daniel T.
LeBel; Steven A. Skalet and Craig L. Briskin of Mehri & Skalet
PLLC; James C. Sturdevant of the Sturdevant Law Firm; and Whitney
Stark of Terrell Marshall Daudt & Willie PLLC.

Safeway is represented by Trenton Norris, Monty Agarwal --
Monty.Agarwal@aporter.com -- and Jonathan Koenig of Arnold &
Porter LLP.

The case is Dee Hensley-Maclean et al. v. Safeway Inc., case
number 3:11-cv-01230, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of California, San Francisco Division.


SCHLUMBERGER LTD: Judge Allows Overtime Class Action to Proceed
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Associated Press reports that a lawsuit accusing oil-services
company Schlumberger Ltd. of failing to pay overtime wages in
North Dakota's oil patch can move forward, a federal judge says.

Judge Ralph Erickson's ruling, released on Jan. 26, grants
conditional class-action status to the suit filed by a former
employee of Houston-based Schlumberger, which provides technology
and other support services for the oil and gas industry.  The suit
alleges that employees worked more than eight hours a day and 40
hours a week, and that the company used a fluctuating workweek to
avoid paying overtime.

"At this early phase, courts apply lenient standards to the
evidence necessary to support conditional certification," Judge
Erickson wrote.  "The plaintiffs' declarations are based on
personal knowledge, and it is reasonable to infer that the
employees understand their own company's pay practices at their
own worksite."

Judge Erickson said the class should be limited to employees
working at the Williston site and workers at other locations do
not qualify.  It's not clear how many workers would be covered in
the suit.

Don Doty, an attorney for the workers, said on Jan. 27 the list of
those who would be covered by a class-action is due to be
completed in 10 days, and estimated it would number in the
hundreds.

"Notice will be sent to the class members informing them of this
lawsuit and giving them the opportunity to join the case to assert
their rights," he said.

Robert Lombardi, an attorney for Schlumberger, did not respond to
a request for comment on Jan. 27.  The company has said in court
documents that the plaintiffs did not work more than 40 hours in
any given workweek and are not entitled to overtime pay under
state or federal laws.  Schlumberger said it made good-faith
efforts to comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act and any
alleged violations of law "were not willful."

Chris Elliott, the original plaintiff, was responsible for
operating and maintaining Schlumberger's oilfield equipment. He
worked for the company from September 2011 to May 2013.


SCOTTS CO: Ex-Product Merchandisers Sue Over Unpaid Expenses
------------------------------------------------------------
Alex Wolf, writing for Law360, reports that a group of former
product merchandisers for Scotts Co. LLC filed a putative class
action on Jan. 26 against the lawn and garden product manufacturer
in California state court, alleging the company refused to
reimburse them for cellphone usage and other work expenses.

The three named plaintiffs in the complaint, all former Scotts
merchandisers, accuse the Ohio-based company and manufacturer of
Miracle-Gro of refusing to reimburse them for personal cellphone
and automobile expenses they incurred on the job, in violation of
California Labor Code and the state Unfair Competition Law.

"[Scotts] failed to reimburse class members for their motor
vehicle business expenses and for a reasonable portion of their
cell phone business expenses even though usage of personal
vehicles and personal cell phones was necessary for the
performance of their jobs and was part of their job descriptions,"
the complaint says.

The former employees say they were required, as part of their job,
to drive their personal vehicles every day to home improvement
stores that sell Scotts products.  They say they were responsible
for setting up promotional materials, making sure the brand
displays and merchandise were intact and engaging with customers
about Scotts' home and garden products.

As part of the duties of the job, the former employees say they
were required to use their own cars to drive at all times and had
to pay for all driving expenses like gas, oil, maintenance,
insurance and vehicle depreciation.

The complaint alleges the former employees also had to use their
own cellphones to make calls to managers, coworkers and assigned
retail stores.  They say they were not reimbursed for those
expenses even though they were explicitly instructed to use their
personal phones.

"Plaintiffs and similarly situated class members were expected to
list their personal cellular phone numbers on their business
cards," the complaint says.

The complaint identifies a putative class of more than 100 current
or former Scotts employees in California who were subject to the
same refusal at some point in the last four years.  It says 50
people now work as Scotts merchandisers in California.

The former employees seek compensation for what they paid out of
pocket and punitive damages.

The plaintiffs are represented by Julian Hammond of HammondLaw PC
and Craig J. Ackerman of Ackermann & Tilajef PC.

The case is Lewis Araiza et al. v. the Scotts Co. LLC, case number
BC570350, in the Superior Court of California, County of Los
Angeles.


SECURITY ONE: Faces Class Action Over TCPA Violation
----------------------------------------------------
Legal Newsline reports that a class action lawsuit filed against a
home security system company on Jan. 19 alleges that it violated
federal law by using automated equipment to call cell phones.

Scott Dolemba filed the lawsuit against Security One Systems,
alleging the company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection
Act (TCPA).  The law restricts companies from using prerecorded
messages to call cell phones.

Mr. Dolemba received a recorded call from Security One Systems at
approximately 9:30 a.m. Sept. 29, the lawsuit alleges. The lawsuit
asks the court to determine if Security One Systems violated the
TCPA and how it obtained cell phone numbers.

The lawsuit seeks class status for anyone who received a similar
call from Security One Systems within the last three years.
Mr. Dolemba said he believed there would be more than 40 members
in the lawsuit.  He is seeking an undisclosed amount of damages
and an injunction preventing Security One from making similar
calls in the future.

Mr. Dolemba is represented by Daniel A. Edelman, Cathleen M.
Combs, James O. Latturner and Francis R. Greene, of Edelman,
Combs, Latturner & Goodwin, LLC.

SEVENTH GENERATION: Faces Suit Over "Natural" Product Label
-----------------------------------------------------------
Legal Newsline reports that a class action lawsuit filed on Jan.
14 against a cleaning product company alleges its "natural"
products contain some un-natural ingredients.

Maggie Tsan and Erica Wildstein alleged in their lawsuit that
Seventh Generation advertises its products as "natural," but all
of its products contain at least one ingredient that isn't
natural.

Seventh Generation makes several household cleaning items such as
laundry detergent, glass cleaner and dish soap.  The lawsuit
alleged the United States Department of Agriculture reported in
the U.S. States Code of Federal Regulations that some of the
ingredients found in Seventh Generation products -- such as sodium
citrate, glycerin and sodium hydroxide - are classified as
"synthetic substances."

The lawsuit also alleged Seventh Generation admitted in a document
on its website that two of its ingredients were synthetic. By
advertising its products as "natural," Seventh Generation
allegedly misled its customers to spend a premium on its products,
according to the lawsuit.

The plaintiffs are seeking class status for anyone who has
purchased Seventh Generation products, more than $5 million in
damages and a court order to prevent Seventh Generation from
falsely labeling its products.

Ms. Tsan and Ms. Wildstein are represented by Michael R. Reese of
Reese Richman, LLP; Melissa Wolchansky and Charles D. Moore --

Tycko & Zavareei, LLP.

SHEBOYGAN, WI: City Employees File Overtime Class Action
--------------------------------------------------------
Jason Smathers, writing for Sheboygan Press Media, reports that
city employees have filed a lawsuit against the city alleging
they're owed thousands in overtime and health care premium
reimbursements.

So far the lawsuit only names Department of Public Works employee
Dan Gilbertson and Sheboygan Police Detective Matthew Walsh and
Officer Matthew Braesch as plaintiffs in the suit.  However, court
records indicate 18 other city employees have signed on as
interested parties to what has been labeled a class action
lawsuit.

At its most basic level, the employees are seeking payment for
overtime, incentive pay and health care premiums.

The reasons, however, are a bit more complicated.

First, there's the matter of overtime and incentive pay.  The city
caps salary increases for employees at a certain hourly rate.
When they hit that limit, employees are given further pay
increases in the form of a lump-sum bonus on top of their normal
wage.

The employees claim in the lawsuit the city may have paid those
increases, but didn't factor them into their calculation for
overtime and incentive pay for things like extra education.  For
example, if an employee's pay was capped at $25 per hour but she
also got a lump-sum increase after that point, the city only uses
the $25 rate to calculate overtime.

The second part of the suit claims that the city owes them back
pay because of the way it handled their health care premiums.

The city, which uses a self-insurance system for its health care
benefits, pools employee paycheck deductions for health care
premiums with the city's contribution into one health care fund,
from which it pays insurance claims.  However, in 2012, the city
transferred about $1.6 million from that fund to the workman's
compensation fund, which had run below a recommended reserve
amount.

The suit alleges that state law prohibits using employee premiums
for that purpose and argues that those employees are owed back
pay, since the premium deductions no longer count as true "wages."
They claim that $120,000 of the transfer is actually back pay owed
to the employees since the funds had an "equal probability of
being spent at any time."

City Administrator Jim Amodeo said city officials obviously don't
see it that way, noting that the vast majority of those funds come
from city contributions.

"Our position is that 85 percent of the money that is put into the
health fund is the city's contribution," Mr. Amodeo said.
"There's no restriction because it's self-insured and it's not a
trust.  By moving the money from the health fund to the workman's
compensation fund, we should be able to do that and our auditors
blessed it.  I think you'd be hard pressed to say that there's
something that's owed back to (the employees)."

As for the overtime pay issue, Mr. Amodeo said the city set the
caps on hourly pay rates based on market surveys but pay above
that point based on performance. Whether the overtime must be
increased as well is something he said the courts will have to
decide.

The city voted at its last council meeting to hire Linder and
Marsack S.C. as outside counsel to handle the lawsuit.

The suit comes on the heels of another lawsuit from former Fire
Chief Jeff Hermann, who claims the city failed to pay out more
than $30,000 in sick days and vacation days he had accumulated.
While the suit currently only applies to Mr. Hermann, Mr. Amodeo
has said the outcome could create a $1.2 million liability for the
city if other employees attempted to make similar claims.

A scheduling conference in Mr. Hermann's case is set for March 9.
No court dates have been set for the class action lawsuit.


SIEMENS INDUSTRY: Removes "Whitley" Suit to E.D. California
-----------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit styled Whitley v. Siemens Industry, Inc.,
Case No. 34-2014-00170345, was removed from the Superior Court of

SINO-FOREST CORP: Underwriters Settle Investor Suit for $32.5MM
---------------------------------------------------------------
Jeff Gray, writing Globe and Mail, reports that a group of big-
name Bay Street financial institutions that underwrote stock and
debt issues for Sino-Forest Corp. have agreed to pay $32.5-million
to burned investors in the onetime Chinese forestry giant, which
collapsed amid fraud allegations in 2011.

Former shareholders in Sino-Forest, once a $6-billion company that
traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange, launched a $9-billion class-
action lawsuit not just against the firm, some of its executives
and its auditors, but also its underwriters -- key "gatekeepers"
who they alleged had failed to do enough due diligence on Sino-
Forest.

In a settlement deal filed on Jan. 26 with the Ontario Superior
Court, the underwriters "make no admissions of liability and deny
any liability" in the plaintiffs' claims.  But the $32.5-million
payment releases them from needing to defend themselves in the
class action, which continues against the company, a list of its
executives and one of its former auditors, BDO Ltd.

A lawyer for the plaintiffs said the settlement amount would be
the largest ever paid in Canada solely by a group of underwriters
in a securities case, and that the deal could make banks and other
financial institutions take a closer look at the offerings they
participate in.

"I think now that underwriters can expect in the future that where
there are alleged claims of failures of due diligence . . . they
are going to have make meaningful payment to the people who are
injured," said Dimitri Lascaris of Siskinds LLP in London, Ont., a
lawyer for Sino-Forest investors.

However, according to numbers in the plaintiffs' statement of
claim, the underwriters actually charged more than $50-million in
commissions on their Sino-Forest offerings.

The settlement still has to be approved by a judge.  If it goes
through, the plaintiffs' legal team stands to take 17.5 per cent
of the settlement, or $5.69-million.  A lawyer for the
underwriters could not be reached for comment.

The settlement agreement also says that certain underwriters --
Credit Suisse Securities (Canada) Inc., TD Securities Inc., Dundee
Securities Ltd. and Merrill Lynch Canada Inc. -- have agreed to
hand over "non-privileged documents and information" relevant to
the case involving BDO.

The list of underwriters also included: RBC Dominion Securities
Inc., Scotia Capital Inc., CIBC World Markets Inc., Canaccord
Genuity Corp. and Maison Placements Canada Inc.

The existence of the settlement, but not the dollar amount, came
to light earlier in January when proceedings in the class action
were adjourned against the underwriters to allow for a court to
approve the deal.  It has not yet been approved but a hearing is
expected soon.

A judge approved the rest of the class action, allowing it to
proceed to trial after the defendants dropped their opposition to
having it "certified" as a class action and having it given the
leave from a judge required by the Ontario Securities Act to
continue.

The settlement with the underwriters, who had made millions in
fees underwriting Sino-Forest stock and debt issues, is the latest
in a string of large multimillion-dollar settlements in the case.

A court approved a massive $117-million settlement with former
Sino-Forest auditors Ernst & Young LLP in 2013.  Last year, the
plaintiffs settled with former Sino-Forest chief financial officer
David Horsley for $5.6-million.

Sino-Forest and some of its former directors and officers are
currently facing a hearing before the Ontario Securities
Commission, which has alleged that they committed fraud.  The
company collapsed after a short-seller alleged in 2011 that it was
a "Ponzi scheme" that could not account for its stated $3-billion
in timber holdings in China.  Sino-Forest and its former officers
and directors have denied the allegations, which have not been
proven in court.

As it faced investigations from securities regulators and lawsuits
from investors, it sought bankruptcy protection.  Its remaining
assets were handed to its debt holders after buyers could not be
found.

UBER TECHNOLOGIES: Faces Class Action Over Lax Ride-Sharing Model
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Christopher Zara, writing for International Business Times,
reports that Uber is keen on boasting that it has the "safest
rides on the road," but a lawsuit is looking to make a dent in
that claim.  The litigation, filed on Jan. 26 in U.S. District
Court in Northern California, accuses Uber Technologies Inc., the
popular ride-sharing firm based in San Francisco, of willfully
misleading riders by pitching itself as a safe transportation
option despite a litany of "negligible" security precautions.

The lawsuit asserts that Uber's marketing materials routinely make
unsubstantiated statements meant to lull potential customers into
a false sense of security and "dispel the concern many would have
about getting into the backseat of a stranger's car."  The legal
complaint cites numerous promotional materials on the Uber
website, featuring pictures of young women getting into Uber cars
along with statements such as the following:

"From the moment you request a ride to the moment you arrive, the
Uber experience has been designed from the ground up with your
safety in mind."

Despite the catchy tagline, Jacob Sabatino, an Uber customer from
Orange County, California, and the single named plaintiff on the
suit, says safety is the last thing on Uber's mind.  In the suit,
lawyers for Mr. Sabatino assert that Uber has no training program,
offers no oversight or supervision of its drivers and, in fact,
doesn't even meet them in person.

What's more, while Uber insists it conducts "industry-leading"
background checks on drivers, those background checks are
outsourced to a third party.

From the complaint:

"Uber does not guarantee the suitability, safety or ability of
third party providers . . . By using the services, you acknowledge
that you may be exposed to situations involving third party
providers that are potentially unsafe, offensive, harmful to
minors, or otherwise objectionable, and that use of third party
providers arranged or scheduled using the service is at your own
risk and judgment.  Uber shall not have any liability arising from
or in any way related to your transactions or relationship with
third party providers."

A spokesperson for Uber did not immediately respond to a request
for comment.

The subject of Uber safety has gained increased attention over the
last few months.  In December, an Uber driver in New Delhi was
charged with raping a 27-year-old woman.  That same month in South
Africa, Nikki Williams, a singer, was allegedly harassed by her
Uber driver.  After numerous sexual-assault allegations emerged
against Uber drivers in Chicago and Boston, the company added a
"safe ride checklist" in those cities in January, but critics said
it doesn't go far enough.

And maybe it never will, according to Mr. Sabatino, who said Uber
"recognizes" that putting members of the public in strangers'
personal cars is an "inherently dangerous" way to do business.
"Fundamental to Uber's model is the inherent concept that members
of the consuming public will be stepping into the backseat of a
stranger's private car with virtually no oversight or protection,"
Mr. Sabatino's lawyers wrote.  "There are no security cameras, no
special markings on the cars, and no sense of company or
authoritative oversight."

Mr. Sabatino is suing on the grounds of unfair competition, false
advertising and violating California's Consumer Legal Remedies
Act.  His lawyers are seeking an enjoining order to stop the
alleged violations. Non-specific damages are also sought.

The lawyers also are seeking class-action status that would
include all U.S. customers who have downloaded and used the Uber
app to obtain rides from the company.


USCB INC: TCPA Class Action Settlement Gets Preliminary Court OK
----------------------------------------------------------------
Emily Field and Kira Lerner, writing for Law360, report that a
California federal judge on Jan. 26 gave preliminary approval to a
$2.75 million settlement deal with receivable and resource
management company USCB Inc. to end allegations that the company
violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Fair Debt
Collection Practices Act.

U.S. District Judge Fernando M. Olguin granted lead plaintiff
Brenda Jonsson's unopposed motion for preliminary settlement,
certifying a nationwide class of people whose cellphones were
called by USCB between 2009 and 2014 by an auto-dialer without
their consent and requiring the company to pay $2.75 million into
a settlement fund.

The deal also compels USCB to partner for five years with Neustar,
a company that provides scrubbing services for a call database to
determine if a phone number belongs to a cellphone.  Neustar will
then try to match the name on the account with the name on a debt
collection count, according to the settlement. If the names don't
match, USCB will take the number out of its dialing system, under
the settlement deal.

The settlement ends allegations that the company violated the TCPA
and the FDCPA, as well as California's Rosenthal Fair Debt
Collection Practices Act.

The judge's approval also appoints Ms. Jonsson as class
representative and scheduled a final fairness hearing for May 21.

Ms. Jonsson filed suit in November 2013 alleging USCB repeatedly
called her cellphone using an automated dialing service to collect
a debt that she did not owe, according to court documents.

"Through third parties Five9 Inc. and Global Connect LLC, USCB
utilizes automatic dialing and artificial/prerecorded voice
technology to make such calls," the judge said.  "For many
consumers who received such calls during the class period, USCB
acquired their telephone numbers through 'skip tracing' or other
indirect method, rather than from the individual consumer."

Ms. Jonsson called USCB several times to ask that the company stop
calling her, but she continued to receive autodialed calls meant
for another person, according to the judge.

Ms. Jonsson also said that telling call recipients to call a
certain number to tell USCB that the company had the wrong number
and to remove them from the list violated the FDCPA.

"According to plaintiff, '[i]mplicit in this message is the threat
that, unless the consumer takes the affirmative step of calling
defendant and notifying it of the wrong number or indirectly
requesting that the calls stop, defendant will continue to make
its autodialed and/or artificial or prerecorded voice calls to the
consumer's phone, in violation of . . . the TCPA,'" the judge
said.

Class counsel obtained a list of the 12,000 class members by
issuing subpoenas to the cellphone companies associated with a
list of dialed phone numbers, according to court documents.

At least $1.472 million of the settlement fund will be available
for distribution to class members, according to the judge.

The parties reached the settlement deal after mediation sessions
before retired judge Carl J. West, according to the judge.

With more than 300 employees and locations in Los Angeles,
Sacramento, Santa Rosa and Henderson, Nevada, USCB America is the
largest privately held receivable and resource management company
in California, according to the company's website.


Plaintiffs are represented by Lance A. Raphael and Stacy M. Bardo
of Consumer Advocacy Center PC.

USCB is represented by Gabe P. Wright -- GWright@KlinedinstLaw.com

California.

WENNER MEDIA: Faces Class Action Over Unpaid Interns
----------------------------------------------------
Alicia Banks and Pamela Chelin, writing for The Wrap, report that
Wenner Media LLC, publisher of Us Weekly and Rolling Stone, is the
latest media company to be hit with a class-action lawsuit -- this
one filed by a woman claiming she worked as an intern and was
wrongfully denied wages.

The plaintiff, Allyson Kocivar worked as an advertising intern at
Us Weekly and as an executive intern for Wenner from Sept. to
Dec. 2011, according to her LinkedIn profile.

Legal documents obtained by TheWrap, show the suit was filed in
the Supreme Court of New York on Jan. 26.  Ms. Kocivar claims "she
worked approximately 35 hours per week" and that "she was tasked
with answering phone calls, managing employee calendars, setting
up appointments, running errands, and other administrative tasks
assigned by company employees," the suit said.

It also claims, "The defendant has maintained a policy and
practice of wrongfully classifying named plaintiff and other
similarly situated employees as exempt from minimum wages."

The suit didn't specify where exactly Kocivar served as an
executive intern at Wenner Media.  But it includes dozens of other
unnamed interns within the company.

"The size of the putative class is believed to be in excess of 100
individuals.  In addition, the names of all potential members of
the putative class are not known."

The suit seeks to recover unpaid wages along with interest and
attorney's fees to be determined at trial.

Based in New York City, with offices in Chicago and Los Angeles,
Wenner Media also publishes "Men's Journal."


WHOLE FOODS: Recalls Cumin Spices Due to Undeclared Peanuts
-----------------------------------------------------------
Whole Foods Market has recalled items prepared with a supplier's
ground cumin spice ingredient that may have contained undeclared
peanut. People with an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts
run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if
they consume these products.

No allergic reactions have been reported to-date, and recalled
items have been pulled from store shelves. Whole Foods Market was
notified by its supplier that undeclared peanut protein was found
in cumin supplied to some of its facilities.

Items that contained ground cumin spice subject to the recall were
sold from January 14, 2015 through February 6, 2015. Not all items
or all products were sold in all store locations. Affected items
such as prepared salads, seasoned meat items, tacos, and other

* Non-Profit Group Sues Miami-Dade Unlicensed Contractors
---------------------------------------------------------
Patrick Riley, writing for Miami Herald, reports that the
Miami-Dade Contractors Alliance, a nonprofit organization trying
to eradicate unlicensed activity in Miami-Dade's construction
industry, has filed a class action lawsuit against more than 80
unlicensed contractors.

Rocco DiBenedetto, owner and creator of the organization, filed
the 242-page lawsuit in Miami-Dade Circuit Court in November
alleging that the defendants' acts are "unfair and a deceptive
practice" and asking for declaratory relief and an emergency
injunction to shut down the companies.  He said that illegal
construction work "disproportionally affects" Miami-Dade County
and is "destroying our market."

"We have absolutely no enforcement, it's the wild, wild West,"
Mr. DiBenedetto said, adding that he estimates there to be six or
seven unlicensed contractors to every licensed professional.  "If
you just go to Broward County, you can see a robust enforcement."

The case was scheduled to be heard on Jan. 29.


* U.S. Securities Class Actions Drop Significantly
--------------------------------------------------
Jonathan Stempel, writing for Reuters, reports that the size of
federal class action lawsuits accusing companies of securities
fraud has dropped significantly, new studies show, as the bull
market in stocks approaches its sixth birthday.

Losses claimed by shareholders, measured by how much stock prices
fell when alleged frauds were disclosed, shrank 45 percent in 2014
to an eight-year low of $57 billion, a study released Tuesday by
Cornerstone Research and Stanford Law School showed.

One cause may be that shareholders have been aiming at smaller
targets.  Only 11 companies in the Standard & Poor's 500 were hit
with class actions.  That is fewer than in any year for which data
has been collected since 2000, Cornerstone said.

Settlements are also getting smaller.

The average size dropped to $34 million, a three-year low, in 2014
from $86 million a year earlier, a study released by NERA Economic
Consulting shows.  Just 94 cases were resolved in 2014, matching
the fewest since 1996, NERA said.

Class action lawsuits swelled in size in the wake of steep stock
market losses during the global financial crisis.

Stock prices on the S&P 500 have nearly tripled from their March
2009 lows, while the Nasdaq has nearly quadrupled.

Class action lawsuits were bigger and more frequent after steep
stock market losses during the global financial crisis.  Stock
prices on the S&P 500 have nearly tripled from their March 2009
lows, while the Nasdaq has nearly quadrupled.

"The passage of financial crisis cases, and the bull market, have
impacted the number and magnitude of cases," said Jacob Zamansky,
a New York lawyer who represents plaintiffs in securities class
actions.  "We will see plenty of fraud and misconduct by issuers
and banks, which is keeping us busy."

Securities class actions accuse companies of making false or
misleading statements, or concealing bad news they should have
disclosed, causing investors to overpay for their shares.

Cornerstone said plaintiffs filed 170 such lawsuits in 2014, up
from 166 a year earlier, but below the average of 188 from 1997 to
2014.

NERA said one reason there are fewer settlements may be that
companies are "holding off," hoping plaintiffs will not be able to
show that alleged misrepresentations actually affected stock
prices.  That was a requirement imposed in a June 2014 decision by
the U.S. Supreme Court in favor of Halliburton Co, the oil
services company.

The court, however, rejected calls to use that case to overturn a
1988 precedent, Basic Inc v Levinson, that underpins the modern
class action industry.
