ALIBABA GROUP: Robbins Geller Files Class Action in New York
------------------------------------------------------------
Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP on Jan. 30 disclosed that a class
action has been commenced in the United States District Court for
the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of
Alibaba Group Holding Limited American Depositary Shares ("ADSs")
during the period between October 21, 2014 and January 28, 2015.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no
later than 60 days from January 30, 2015.  If you wish to discuss
this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your
rights or interests, please contact plaintiff's counsel, Samuel H.
Rudman or David A. Rosenfeld of Robbins Geller at 800/449-4900 or
619/231-1058, or via e-mail at djr@rgrdlaw.com

If you are a member of this class, you can view a copy of the
complaint as filed or join this class action online at
http://www.rgrdlaw.com/cases/alibaba/

Any member of the putative class may move the Court to serve as
lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to
do nothing and remain an absent class member.

The complaint charges Alibaba and certain of its officers and
directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
Alibaba is a China-based online and mobile commerce company in
retail and wholesale trade, as well as cloud computing and other
services.

The complaint alleges that during the class period, Defendants
issued materially false and misleading statements regarding the
soundness of Company's business operations, the strength of its
financial prospects and concealing substantial ongoing regulatory
scrutiny.  Specifically, the complaint alleges that Alibaba failed
to disclose that Company executives had met with China's State
Administration of Industry and Commerce ("SAIC") in July 2014,
just two months before Alibaba's $25+ billion initial public
offering in the United States (the "IPO"), and that regulators had
then brought to Alibaba's attention a variety of highly dubious --
even illegal -- business practices. In the IPO, Alibaba and
certain "selling shareholders" sold more than 368 million ADSs at
$68 each.  The complaint alleges that selling shareholders
included two of Alibaba's co-founders, Jack Ma and Joseph Tsai,
each of whom sold millions of shares.  The complaint also alleges
that throughout the Class Period, Alibaba's ADSs continued trading
at ever-increasing, artificially inflated prices reaching a Class
Period high of $120 each in intraday trading on November 13, 2014
and that in November 2014, the Company raised another $8 billion
in a debt offering.

The complaint further alleges that on January 28, 2015, before the
opening of trading, various members of the financial media
reported that SAIC had released a white paper accusing Alibaba of
engaging in the very illegal conduct disclosed to Alibaba
executives in July 2014.  On this news, the complaint alleges that
the price of Alibaba ADSs declined unusually high trading volume.
Then, the complaint alleges, on January 29, 2015, before the
market opened, Alibaba issued a press release announcing its
financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2014.  The
complaint alleges that revenue growth missed the target defendants
had led the investment community to expect and that profits
declined 28% from Alibaba's fourth quarter 2013 results.
According to the complaint, the Company blamed an inability to
monetize growing transactions on its mobile platforms, where
advertising is less profitable than on personal computers.  As a
result of these disclosures, the complaint alleges that the price
of Alibaba ADSs plummeted further and collectively the two drops
erased more than $11 billion in market capitalization from the
ADSs Class Period high.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of
Alibaba ADSs during the Class Period.  The plaintiff is
represented by Robbins Geller, which has expertise in prosecuting
investor class actions and extensive experience in actions
involving financial fraud.

With 200 lawyers in ten offices, Robbins Geller --

AMERICAN TAX: Settlements in Bid-Rigging Class Action Top $8MM
--------------------------------------------------------------
Matthew Bultman and Aaron Vehling, writing for Law360, report that
the settlement fund in a consolidated class action brought by
property owners alleging a wide-ranging conspiracy to rig auctions
of municipal tax liens in New Jersey climbed over $8 million on
Jan. 29, after a federal judge gave preliminary approval to
settlement deals with three investors and a Florida tax company.

U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp granted the plaintiffs' motion
for preliminary settlement with American Tax Funding LLC, along
with individual investors Lambros Xethalis, Robert W. Stein and
Norman T. Remick, to settle allegations they participated in a
scheme to manipulate auctions by colluding on bids to drive up the
interest rates on municipal tax liens.

According to the order filed on Jan. 29, American Tax Fund will
pay $350,000 while Stein and Remick, who pled guilty to related
criminal charges in April 2013, will pay $115,000 and $135,000,
respectively.  An amount for Xethalis was not indicated.

"Because the [settlements] meet the preliminary standards for
preliminary approval, the court preliminarily approves all terms
of the [settlements]," Judge Shipp wrote.

The group is among 14 settling defendants in the alleged
conspiracy who have agreed to pay a combined $8.3 million to the
settlement fund.  In orders dating back to 2013, Judge Shipp
granted preliminary approval of deals with several companies,
including Pro Capital LLC, Sass Investor Services and Royal Tax
Lien Services LLC, and numerous individuals associated with those
companies.

Suits are still pending against five groups of defendants,
including Fidelity Inc. and Crestar Capital LLC.

Judge Shipp's order from Jan. 29 also provisionally certified a
settlement class of people who owned property in New Jersey and
whose tax sale certificate was purchased by one of the defendants
at a public auction between January 1998 and February 2009.

According to court filings, New Jersey law allows the auctioning
of tax liens that remain unpaid after a waiting period.  The law
requires that investors bid on the interest rate that delinquent
property owners will pay upon redemption, starting with an 18
percent rate that is reducible to zero through a competitive
bidding process.

The plaintiffs claim the defendants began conspiring in 1998 to
allocate the liens among themselves and not bid against each other
in order to make sure the interest rates didn't drop below the
legal maximum of 18 percent.

The plaintiffs say the conspiracy harmed thousands of New Jersey
real property owners by forcing them to pay higher interest rates
on their tax sale certificates than they would have without the
collusion, according to the amended complaint.

Following a probe into the scheme, the U.S. Department of Justice
secured more than a dozen guilty pleas, including that of Remick,
who acknowledged in April 2013 that he submitted bids in line with
agreements to divvy up the liens with other bidders.

Judge Shipp in November dismissed two claims from the class action
but declined to fully toss the suit, ruling the plaintiffs had
adequately stated their antitrust claims.

On Jan. 29, he appointed Gilardi & Co. LLC as the class
administrator and set a final fairness hearing for July.

The plaintiffs are represented by The Wolf Law Firm LLC, Lite
DePalma Greenberg LLC, Williams Cuker & Berezofsky, Cafferty
Clobes Meriwether & Sprengel LLP, Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis
LLP, Mattleman Weinroth & Miller PC, Bailey & Glasser LLP, Smith &
Schwartzstein LLC, Paris Ackerman & Schmierer, Poulos Lopiccolo PC
and Shepherd Finkelman Miller & Shah LLP, among others.

The tax companies are represented by Carella Byrne Cecchi Olstein
Brody & Agnello PC, Greenbaum Rowe Smith & Davis LLP, Dilworth
Paxson LLP, Bellin & Associates LLC and Steven M. Janove, among
others.

The case is In re: New Jersey Tax Sales Certificates Antitrust
Litigation, case number 3:12-cv-01893, in the U.S. District Court
for the District of New Jersey.

APPLE INC: April Hearing Set for MacBook Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------
According to MacWorld.co.uk's Ashleigh Allsopp, reports of failing
MacBook Pros have been flooding in since 2013, with many owners of
2011 models with AMD graphics suffering from system crashes and
hardware problems that have been described as "critical".

In August 2014, a petition started last year that urges Apple to
recall the affected MacBook Pro laptops to fix the problem passed
the 10,000-signature mark, and in October 2014 it soared past the
20,000 supporters mark, yet Apple still hasn't addressed the
issue.

As a result of getting 20,000 signatures on the petition, at the
end of October 2014, Apple was hit with a class action lawsuit
about the defect in a California federal court.  The lawsuit
claims that the defect in the 2011 MacBook Pro comes from the
lead-free solder that's used to connect one of the processing
chips to the main circuit board in the computer.

According to the complaint, the frequent changes in temperature
that occur while using the MacBook Pro cause the lead-free solder
to crack, which in turn causes the graphics issues as described
above.

A very similar lawsuit has been filed in Canada, against Apple
Canada.

The case is expected to be heard before a judge in early April.

The problem, which first emerged in February last year, has
escalated throughout 2014 as more and more owners of the affected
models begin to experience issues.  While playing games, watching
HD video or performing another graphics-intensive task, users have
witnessed their displays distorting, or sometimes going completely
blank.  Rebooting the machine temporarily resolves the issue, but
it almost always returns.

Eventually, many users found that their MacBook boots to a blue or
grey screen.  Currently, the only permanent resolution is to get a
replacement logic board, but that can prove quite costly without
Apple Care.  It's believed that overheating is to blame for the
issue.

Some of the readers who've been in touch have said that Apple has
replaced their 2011 MacBook Pro's logic board thanks to Apple
Care, with some customers even claiming to have had their logic
board replaced multiple times. However, most of those with the
three year's of warranty provided by AppleCare will be approaching
the end of the protection plan, so are understandably concerned
about what will happen once they are no longer covered.

Macworld reached out to Apple for a comment about the situation,
but the company has yet to respond.  Customers are keeping their
fingers crossed for a replacement program.

In the past, Apple has offered replacement hard drives for iMacs
containing 1TB Seagate hard drives that have been known to fail,
replacement MagSafe adapters, iBook logic board replacements back
in 2004, and, most recently, a MacBook Air flash storage drive
replacement programme for June 2012 to June 2013 models.

Concerned owners of afflicted MacBooks have even set up a website
on which they've been sharing their photographs, plus a Facebook
page and a petition.

CHESWICK GENERATING: Judge Strikes Down Class Action Allegations
----------------------------------------------------------------
Sam Kusic, writing for Pittsburgh Business Times, reports that a
federal judge has struck down class allegations in a lawsuit
against Cheswick Generating Station.

The plaintiffs in the case, Kristie Bell and Joan Luppe, who live
close to the plant, argue that emissions from the coal-fired plant
were creating a nuisance for themselves and 1,500 others who live
within a one-mile radius of it.  They also argued that the plant's
emissions were negligent, even though they are within regulatory
limits.  They were seeking class-action status for the lawsuit,
but U.S. District Judge Cathy Bissoon ruled against that, in part
because the plaintiffs inconsistently defined the class to be part
of the lawsuit.

"This ruling proves courts are increasingly willing to force
plaintiffs to precisely define their target class before they can
pressure industry into expensive discovery," said McGuireWoods
partner Scott Oostdyk -- soostdyk@mcguirewoods.com -- lead counsel
for the plant's owner, NRG Energy.

"Class action allegations are often designed to intimidate
businesses into settling as an alternative to the high cost of
electronic and paper discovery required to get to a dispositive
certification hearing," he said.

Judge Bissoon, however, didn't close the door on the case, giving
the plaintiffs until Feb. 5 to propose an amended complaint.

JPMORGAN CHASE: Settles FX Rigging class Action for $99.5MM
-----------------------------------------------------------
Evan Weinberger, writing for Law360, reports that JPMorgan Chase &
Co. will pay $99.5 million to exit an antitrust class action
alleging the bank was part of a conspiracy to rig the
approximately $5 trillion-per-day foreign exchange market,
according to court documents filed on Jan. 30.

JPMorgan will pay $99 million to a group of pension funds, hedge
funds and other investors plus $500,000 for administering the
settlement fund under the deal and, crucially, has agreed to
cooperate with investors as they press their case against other
global banks named in the suit.

"This crucial first settlement offers victims not just monetary
relief, but cooperation from JPMorgan that will support their
claims against the remaining 11 major banks that entered into the
long-running conspiracy to manipulate the FX market," David R.
Scott, the managing partner of Scott & Scott LLP, said in a
statement.

Scott & Scott attorneys are co-lead counsel for the plaintiffs on
the case, along with lawyers from Hausfeld LLP.

The plaintiffs first notified U.S. District Judge Lorna G.
Schofield of federal district court in Manhattan that they had
reached a settlement with JPMorgan in a Jan. 5 letter, but terms
of the deal were kept confidential.  JPMorgan's $99.5 million
payout was revealed in a motion to approve the deal filed on
Jan. 30.

The New York-based bank is the first of the banks targeted in the
class action, which also includes Bank of America Corp., Citigroup
Inc., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., UBS AG and several other global
banking giants.  The suit alleges their traders engaged in a
conspiracy to manipulate foreign exchange rates in violation of
U.S. antitrust law.

Other banks may soon have to consider settling after Judge
Schofield denied their motion to dismiss a complaint from U.S.-
based investors alleging market manipulation on Jan. 28.

The judge rejected the banks' claims that the U.S. plaintiffs
failed to bring enough evidence of a potential conspiracy, finding
that the facts laid out in the complaint, including the existence
of chat rooms where traders "congratulated each other on the
manipulation of 'the Fix,'" were enough that discovery and trial
were needed to determine their veracity.  "The Fix" is an industry
term for the median price of a widely traded currency 30 seconds
before market close that sets the closing price for the day.

"Even the names the FX traders gave their chat rooms -- such as
'The Cartel,' 'The Bandits' Club' and 'The Mafia' -- support the
inference that the chat rooms were used for anti-competitive
purposes," Schofield wrote.

The plaintiffs, including the Louisiana Municipal Police
Employees' Retirement System, filed their complaint in 2012.  They
alleged the banks routinely charged pension funds the worst
possible forex rates when processing transactions on their behalf.

Other plaintiffs filed similar class action complaints.  They were
eventually consolidated in New York district court.

Buttressing the plaintiffs' claims were a series of enforcement
actions from U.S. and other regulators resulting in about $4.3
billion in fines against the banks.

In its Jan. 30 settlement, JPMorgan gave the plaintiffs even more
ammunition to go after the remaining bank defendants.

"This settlement is a significant early victory for the class,
especially given the prominence of JPMorgan and their lawyers.  We
believe it will assist us in prosecuting this matter to a
successful conclusion," Christopher M. Burke, the head of Scott &
Scott's antitrust practice group, said in a statement.

JPMorgan is represented by Peter E. Greene --
peter.greene@skadden.com -- of Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom
LLP.

The plaintiffs are represented by Michael D. Hausfeld, William
Butterfield, Reena Gambhir, Timothy Kearns, and Nathaniel Giddings
-- ngiddings@hausfeldllp.com -- of Hausfeld LLP and Christopher M.

LAWRENCE LIVERMORE: Retirees Get Class Action Opt-Out Notice
------------------------------------------------------------
Janet Armantrout, writing for The Independent, reports that
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory retirees have started
receiving letters offering them a chance to opt out of the class
action lawsuit that seeks to restore the University of California
health care that was available to them for decades.

Individuals must make their own decisions based on personal
considerations.  However, for the great majority, staying with the
class -- not mailing in the opt-out form -- makes sense.  There
are no guarantees, but the legal action pursued so doggedly over
the past five years by the UC Livermore Laboratory Retirees Group
has made significant progress and does have a chance to win.

The Independent hopes that most retirees stay the course and stay
involved.


LEARNING CURVE: Expands Recall of VIA I470C Infant Car Seats
------------------------------------------------------------
Starting date:             January 21, 2015
Posting date:              January 21, 2015
Type of communication:     Consumer Product Recall
Subcategory:               Children's Products
Source of recall:          Health Canada
Issue:                     Product Safety
Audience:                  General Public
Identification number:     RA-43459

Affected products: Learning Curve VIA I470C model child restraints

The recall involves various Learning Curve VIA I470C infant car
seats with a manufacture date code ranging from April 2011 to
March 2012.  The model number, item number, manufacture date code
and the words "Learning Curve" appear on the sticker on the back
of the products.  The brand name "The First Years" is found on the
visor of the car seat, while the brand name "Lamaze" is found on
the front of the car seat.

These infant car seats are included in the recall:

  Model Number   Item Number    Brand Name
  ------------   -----------    ----------
   VIA I470C     Y11228C        The First Years VIA Infant Car
                                Seat - 1470C
   VIA I470C     Y11248C        The First Years T230 c Wisp
                                Elegance
   VIA I470C     Y11272C        Lamaze LaMAZE Indigo Travel System
   VIA I470C     Y11282C        Lamaze LaMAZE Indigo Travel System
   VIA I470C     Y11289C        Lamaze LaMAZE Indigo VIA Infant
                                Car Seat

Note that only the VIA I470C model car seats are being recalled
for the travel systems; the strollers are not affected.

Testing by Transport Canada's compliance program has revealed that
these products do not meet current head and chest injury limits.
These regulatory limits help ensure the safety of the child in the
restraint system.  Additionally, it was found during a simulated
crash test the adjustable recline foot might not remain in its
installed position which might introduce slack in the vehicle seat
belt or Universal Anchorage System (UAS) belt. In the event of a
secondary collision, theoretically the loose seat could increase
the risk of injury to the infant in the car seat or other people
in the vehicle.

Neither Learning Curve nor Health Canada has received any reports
of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these
child restraints in Canada.

Approximately 6,117 of the recalled products were sold in Canada
by various retailers.

The recalled products were manufactured in China and sold from
June 2011 to March 2014.

Companies:

   Distributor     Learning Curve Brands Inc.
                   Dyersville
                   Iowa
                   United States

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled child
restraints and dispose of the car seats as per municipal
guidelines, and in such a way that the product could no longer be
used.

LYFT: California Likely to Favor Drivers, Judge Says
----------------------------------------------------
Dan Levine, writing for Reuters, reports that a U.S. judge on
Jan. 29 said it was "very difficult" to decide whether drivers for
smartphone-enabled car service Lyft are employees or independent
contractors, but that California law appears to favor the drivers.

Lyft and larger rival Uber face separate lawsuits seeking class
action status in San Francisco federal court, brought on behalf of
drivers who contend they are employees and entitled to
reimbursement for expenses including gas and vehicle maintenance.
The drivers currently pay those costs themselves.

A ruling against either company could significantly raise their
costs beyond the lawsuits' scope and force them to pay social
security, workers' compensation, and unemployment insurance. That
could affect the valuations for other startups that rely on large
networks of individuals to provide rides, clean houses and the
like.

At a hearing on the Lyft lawsuit on Jan. 29, U.S. District Judge
Vince Chhabria said he was "scratching my head" because
traditional employment categories are "woefully outdated" when
applied to companies like Lyft.

However, Judge Chhabria said California legal precedents "point
pretty strongly in the direction" that "people who do the kinds of
things that Lyft drivers do here are employees."

Judge Chhabria did not rule from the bench.  A hearing on the same
issue involving Uber was set to take place on Jan. 30 before a
different judge.

Uber has raised more than $4 billion from prominent venture
capital firms such as Benchmark and Google Ventures, valuing the
company at $40 billion and making it the most valuable U.S.
startup.  Lyft has raised $331 million from Andreessen Horowitz,
Founders Fund and other investors.

The drivers have not yet specified how much money they are seeking
in damages.

Drivers argue they should be considered employees because Uber and
Lyft can hire and fire them and require them to accept a certain
percentage of rides, and to pass background checks.

"They're there to further Lyft's mission," said Matthew Carlson,
an attorney for the drivers.

Uber and Lyft counter that drivers control their own schedules,
are not assigned a territory, and are not supplied with any
equipment apart from an iPhone and a sign.

"Lyft's business is to maintain an on-line platform, making it
possible for riders and drivers to freely arrange transportation
by automobile with other members of the community," the company
wrote in a court filing.

On certain model vehicles outfitted with an Automatic Over-Speed
Protection system, the system may be incorrectly wired.  This
presents a potential risk as the operator may not be able to
control an unintended increase in the engine RPM if combustible
vapors enter through the air intake.  If this occurs, it could
increase the risk of an engine fire that may cause injury and/or
property damage.

Dealers will inspect and repair accordingly.

MONTEREY COUNTY, CA: Inmates' Suit Obtains Class-Action Status
--------------------------------------------------------------
Allison Gatlin, writing for The Salinas Californian, reports that
Salinas inmates embroiled in a two-year legal battle against their
jailers scored a win on Jan. 29 when a federal judge granted their
lawsuit class-action status.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal delivered his opinion in a 50-
page document that outlined the dangers inmates face from
allegedly inadequate medical and mental health care as well as the
threat of violence from fellow inmates.

Representatives of the defendants -- Monterey County, the Monterey
County Sheriff's Office and Californian Forensic Medical Group --
however, argued the certification doesn't mean the plaintiffs'
claims are true.

San Francisco-based Rosen Bien Galvan and Grunfeld LLP brought the
suit in May 2013 on the behalf of an initial five inmates, who
sued for better medical and mental health care and protection from
violence.  Now, there are 21 named inmates and an entire class
including all current and future Monterey County Jail inmates.
Judge Grewal also certified disabled inmates as a sub-class to the
lawsuit.

To reach his decision, Judge Grewal said he relied on four neutral
expert reports, evaluations from 2007 and 2011, and declarations
by plaintiff experts and witnesses.

Specifically, the inmates allege "a variety of jail policies and
practices 'fail to keep [inmates] safe from violence, to deliver
adequate medical and mental health care or to provide required
assistance to [inmates] with disabilities," according to Judge
Grewal's order.

In 2007 and 2011, reports commissioned by Monterey County reached
the same conclusion, Judge Grewal said.

"The current combination of insufficient beds, an inadequate
detention facility and under-staffing has resulted in an almost
untenable situation," according to the reports.

The judge also denied the defendants' motion to toss out one
expert's damning testimony.

The inmates are seeking injunctive relief to what they say are
system-wide deficiencies in the jail.  That relief would force
jail staff, by court order, to make wide systemic changes in
policy to protect inmates.

Complicating matters is the impact of realignment, per the 2011
Assembly Bill 109, which calls for "low-risk" prisoners to be
detained in county jails.  Experts say the effort has decreased
state prison populations, which California was under court order
to do.  Scott Miller, former Monterey County sheriff, earlier said
realignment has increased the jail population significantly.

Monterey County Sheriff Steve Bernal, who was elected late last
year, didn't immediately return a call for comment on Jan. 30, but
is quoted in a written statement from the Monterey County
Counsel's office.

Sheriff Bernal, within the statement, mentions an $89 million jail
expansion currently in the works.  Like Mr. Miller, Sheriff Bernal
said the modifications will ameliorate many of the problems within
the dilapidated facility.

"This money represents the tremendous commitment the County of
Monterey has toward improving its jail facilities and another
significant step in the continuum of improvements being made at
the jail," Sheriff Bernal said.

Overpopulation and under-staffing aren't new problems for the
Monterey County Jail.  In September, the Monterey County Board of
Supervisors approved a $3.03 million funding request to improve
realignment conditions at the jail.  Per the request, Miller was
authorized to hire 11 new deputies -- 10 of which would be
stationed at the jail.

The provision included a $1.35 million increase to California
Forensic Medical Group's contract to hire more medical
professionals for the jail.

But, it's still not enough, Judge Grewal said.  He cited alleged
sundry incidents in the jail involving weapons, inadequate sick-
call procedure, medication failures and non-compliance with the
Americans with Disabilities Act.

One inmate so feared the "rubber room," he was hesitant to express
his true propensity for suicide to jail staff, Judge Grewal wrote,
citing plaintiffs' claims.  A rubberized room contains no features
within except a grate in the floor for bodily fluids.  Another
inmate, who wasn't provided a needed cane, slept on the floor
because he couldn't reach his third-level bunk, Judge Grewal
noted.

Yet another said she hadn't been outside since mid-December 2013
because, due to multiple sclerosis, she can't walk up the stairs
to the exercise room.

Even jail administrators, the former sheriff and California
Forensic Medical Group staff have conceded the deep impact of
overcrowding at the facility, Judge Grewal wrote.

To establish class certification, the plaintiffs had to be
numerous and show common grievances and typical defense claims.
They also had to demonstrate attorneys can provide adequate legal
protection for the entire class.

Not every inmate claim needs to be identical, Judge Grewal wrote.
The important point is each member of the class is at risk of
serious harm or death due to the systemic failures of the jail.

"While results of exposure may vary, ranging from no harm to
death, each inmate suffers the same constitutional or statutory
injury when exposed to a policy or practice that creates a
substantial risk of serious harm," Judge Grewal wrote.

Even inmates who aren't being treated currently for a medical or
mental health issue are at risk for harm, he wrote.

"They are that system's next potential victims," he said.

Peter Bertling, an attorney representing CFMG, emphasized that
just because he granted class certification doesn't mean Judge
Grewal agrees with the plaintiffs' claims.

"What the judge is simply going to be focusing on is whether our
policies and procedures for medical and mental health care subject
the inmates to the risk of potential harm," Mr. Bertling said.

Dr. Mike Puisis, one of the agreed-upon experts, claimed CFMG
staffing on any given day at the jail is 40 to 70 percent under
necessary requirements.  Mr. Bertling called that claim
"ludicrous."  In fact, CFMG bolstered staffing at the jail long
before the September 2014 boost to the contract with Monterey
County.

"We had been increasing our staffing and CFMG had been burying the
cost of that staffing even before the county approved it (the
contract increase)," Mr. Bertling said.

Class certification doesn't complicate defending the lawsuit,
Mr. Bertling said.  Judge Grewal still has one decisive question
to ask.

"What he essentially said at the end of the decision was it's
either a yes or no," Mr. Bertling said.  "Do we have under-
staffing? . . .  If it's no, then there will be no change.  If
it's yes, then he'll determine the nature and extent of that
under-staffing and what needs to be done to fix it."

Mr. Bertling didn't know off hand how many staff members CFMG
stations at the jail each day nor how many inmates receive
treatment on a daily basis.

"That's certainly something the judge will focus on," he said.

Susan Blitch, of the County Counsel's office, echoed Mr.
Bertling's comments.

"The court took a procedural step of granting class
certification," she said in a written statement.  "This decision,
however, is not a determination of the validity of the plaintiffs'
claims in this case."

Monterey County has offered, from the beginning, to include the
plaintiffs' counsel in examining potential improvements at the
jail.

"Plaintiffs' counsel has chosen to force the county to spend
extensive resources on litigation rather than work
collaboratively," Ms. Blitch said.  "It is plaintiffs' counsel's
choice to proceed with litigation but it is an unfortunate one."


NAT'L FOOTBALL: Appeals Painkiller Class Action Dismissal
---------------------------------------------------------
Dave Rice, writing for San Diego Reader, reports that former
San Diego Charger Pro Bowl player and current ESPN personality
Marcellus Wiley plus a handful of other former NFL players are
appealing a federal court judge's decision to toss out their
class-action lawsuit claiming that their respective teams
overloaded them on painkillers in order to mask serious injuries
and speed their return to the field.

Mr. Wiley, who spent three years of his ten-year career in
San Diego, told ESPN last June that he took "multiple injections"
in order to "cope with an injury that then-San Diego team
physician Dr. David Chao diagnosed as a severe groin sprain."

A later analysis by an outside doctor determined mr. Wiley had
suffered a torn abdominal wall, a more severe injury requiring
surgery.  Dr. Chao continued on as the Chargers' official doctor
until stepping down in 2013 in the face of a complaint regarding
his practice from the NFL Players Association, a charge for which
he was eventually cleared by an independent panel.

"You can't walk into a doctor's office and say, 'Give me this,
give me that, just to get through the day.' Somebody would shut
the place down," Mr. Wiley said in his ESPN interview.  "But
that's what was going on in the NFL."

The suit was thrown out in December by U.S. district judge William
Alsup, who said the issue should be settled through arbitration as
specified by the collective bargaining agreement in place during
the players' careers.

"The tortious conduct as alleged in the second amended complaint
is not something that is subject to a CBA under any
circumstances," countered Steven Silverman, an attorney
representing the class who is appealing the dismissal.

Although several other plaintiffs in the suit are also parties to
the higher-profile case involving concussions in the NFL, Wiley is
not, and says he only joined the painkiller complaint after
suffering partial renal failure last year despite not having any
prior history of kidney issues. He believes the condition is
related to the drugs doled out during his playing years.

"I'm not a medical doctor," the ESPN interview continues, "but I
did take the word of a medical doctor who took an oath to get me
through not just one game, or one season, but a lifetime."


NOW FOODS: Vitamin C Bottles Half-Full, Class Action Claims
-----------------------------------------------------------
Legal Newsline reports that a class action suit filed on Jan. 21
alleged a supplement manufacturer deceived customers by only
filling one of its products halfway, but still charging a premium
price.

Zabrina Collazo filed the lawsuit against Now Foods over its Now
Vitamin C supplement.  The lawsuit alleged the three-pound
container of the product is only approximately half-full of the
supplement.

The product is packaged in a white container approximately 8.6
inches high and 4.75 inches in diameter, but the supplement inside
allegedly only fills approximately 4.4 inches from the bottom of
the bottle.

Ms. Collazo purchased the product in New York City for $59.99
within the last year and believed the entire volume would be
filled with the supplement.

The lawsuit said the product costs $1.25 per ounce, but lists
other Vitamin C supplements that cost 68 to 94 cents per ounce.
Since the container is only approximately half-full, Ms. Collazo
alleged anyone who bought the product is owed $29.39 for each
container purchased.

The lawsuit seeks class status and more than $5 million in
damages, plus court costs.  Ms. Collazo is represented by C.K. Lee
of Lee Litigation Group in New York City.

United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York
case number 1:15-cv-00328.


OAKLAND RAIDERS: Bill Introduced after Cheerleader Class Action
---------------------------------------------------------------
Claire Zillman, writing for Fortune, reports that a California
lawmaker introduced a bill to protect the rights of women.

On Jan. 29, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, a Democrat from San
Diego, announced a bill that would consider cheerleaders as
employees under California law and require professional sports
teams in the state to grant them the same rights as other
employees.  The legislation aims to protect cheerleaders from
workplace violations, like unpaid overtime and having to pay for
work expenses with their own funds.

"If the guy selling you the beer deserves a minimum wage, so does
the woman entertaining you on the field," Ms. Gonzalez, a former
Stanford University cheerleader, said.  "All work is dignified and
cheerleaders deserve the respect of these basic workplace
protections."

The bill comes in the wake of a landmark class action wage theft
lawsuit filed by two former Raiderettes against the Oakland
Raiders, which highlighted alleged workplace abuses that
professional cheerleaders endure.  In September, the Raiders paid
$1.25 million to settle the lawsuit, which claimed that the
Raiderettes were paid a lump sum of $1,250 at the end of the
season for their work, amounting to as little as $5 per hour.  The
lawsuit also said that cheerleaders were not paid for all the
hours they worked and were forced to pay for job-related expenses
out of their own pockets.  With the settlement, the Raiders
started paying its cheerleaders California's minimum wage: $9 per
hour.

NFL cheerleaders have also sued the Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati
Bengals, New York Jets, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for minimum
wage violations.

The NFL, which was named as a defendant in a second cheerleader
wage suit against the Raiders, has maintained that cheerleader pay
is a "team matter."

OTTAWA: Faces Suit Over Indian Residential School Settlement
------------------------------------------------------------
Bonnie Allen, writing for for CBC News, reports that the federal
government has filed a $25-million statement of claim accusing
Tony Merchant's law firm of overbilling for legal services and
falsifying documents to cover it up, in a scheme to defraud
Canada.

The civil suit, filed in the Court of Queen's Bench for
Saskatchewan, claims the Merchant Law Group should repay $25
million, plus interest, and cover the costs incurred by taxpayers
in an eight-year legal battle.

"The government is taking legal action to recover public money
that was paid to this firm as a result of serious
misrepresentations," a Department of Justice spokesperson told CBC
News in an email.

Allegations not proven

None of these allegations have been proven in court.

In an emailed statement to CBC News, the Merchant law firm said
that it "denies that any of the government's concocted allegations
have merit or any basis in reality."  Merchant has 20 days to file
a statement of defense.

Under the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, $1.9
billion was set aside for all former residents of the schools.

On Jan. 30, the Merchant Law Group said it had also filed a
lawsuit against the federal government.

'A scheme to deceive and defraud Canada.'

Accusation against Merchant Law Group in court documents'
Merchant, who is husband of Liberal Senator Pana Merchant, is
known as the king of class action lawsuits in Canada.

In 2005, the Regina lawyer was expecting his law firm to rake in
roughly $80 million for legal services on residential school
claims.

The federal government approved a multibillion-dollar settlement
agreement.  A chunk would go to law firms, including the Merchant
Law Group, while former students received a common experience
payment of, on average, $24,000.

In 2005, Mr. Merchant presented his stake to former Supreme Court
justice Frank Iacobucci, the man in charge of the residential
school agreement.  Mr. Merchant claimed his law firm was owed $80
million for legal services to represent more than 7,000 former
residential school students.  However, Justice Iacobucci was not
satisfied that Merchant had documentation to support that claim.

Eventually, Ottawa and Merchant struck a deal to have a forensic
accountant examine the firm's files and billing system, but
Merchant later claimed it was a violation of solicitor-client
privilege.

In August 2008, a court decision forced the federal government to
pay $25 million to the Merchant Law Group in application of a
previous agreement.

But that wasn't the end of it.

In December 2009, the Court of Queen's Bench in Saskatchewan ruled
the Merchant Law Group must provide Ottawa with an extract of its
electronic billing records, without client names or personal
information.

Since then, the law firm has submitted various versions of its
records, always deemed unacceptable by the government.

57,000 entries questioned

According to this statement of claim, Merchant at one point
acknowledged that 57,000 entries in its records were
"misdescribed" or would not be billed for.

Now, the attorney general claims an audit by Deloitte, completed a
year ago, revealed Merchant's records are full of "illegitimate
time entries and excessive disbursement records."

Among other things, the civil suit alleges that the Merchant Law
Group:

Falsely and intentionally represented that it incurred more
unbilled time in relation to residential school cases than it did.
Falsely and intentionally created and modified illegitimate time
entries and records "as part of a scheme to deceive and defraud
Canada."

Submitted false claims that prompted Canada to pay millions of
dollars in legal fees and disbursement for which the law firm was
not entitled.

As to why this was being pursued as a civil case, rather than
criminal, the Department of Justice spokesperson said, "The
attorney general of Canada reviewed the details of the report and
is taking the most appropriate corrective actions."

Merchant files lawsuit

In a letter to CBC, Donald Outerbridge, executive director of
Merchant Law Group, wrote "the government claim filed on January
27 is simply a regurgitation of a position they have been putting
forward to judges since 2007."

It claims the government still owes Merchant Law Group fees under
the Indian Residential School Settlement and is presenting "old
arguments in a new legal maneuver."

Calling the government's claim "not acceptable in the Canadian
court system" Mr. Outerbridge said it has "launched a new lawsuit
against the federal government to receive the further $15 million
fee and disbursements that are still owing."

PF CHANG: Sued Over Extra Charges on Gluten-Free Dishes
-------------------------------------------------------
Legal Newsline reports that a California woman recently filed a
lawsuit charging a restaurant chain with discrimination and
violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Anna Marie Phillips sued P.F. Chang's China Bistro, Inc.,
headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Dec. 9 in Santa Clara
County Superior Court. It asserts that the restaurant violates
civil and disability rights by forcing gluten-free diners to pay
higher prices.

Although P.F. Chang's well-publicized gluten-free menu charges one
additional dollar per item, it doesn't add surcharges for
accommodations on its regular menu items, the complaint says.  The
class action suit states that because a gluten-free diet is
medically necessary for individuals with celiac disease, gluten-
free patrons have no choice but to order at the higher price.

Surcharges for gluten-free items are claimed to occur even where
the items at issue may naturally be gluten free, such as vegetable
dishes, the complaint says.

Asserting arbitrary and unequal treatment, the plaintiff contends
that P.F. Chang's discriminates against consumers with celiac
disease and gluten intolerance; and that by adding a surcharge,
violates the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Phillips brings suit on behalf of persons with celiac disease or
gluten intolerance who ordered items from P.F. Chang's gluten-free
menu in California within four years prior to the suit.

According to papers filed, the number of class members has been
calculated to be more than 3,000.  P.F. Chang's operates 204
restaurants in 39 states, with eight in Northern California.

The plaintiff seeks an injunction against further surcharges;
restitution for the surcharges paid for gluten-free items; civil
penalties; compensatory damages; and punitive damages.

Ms. Phillips is represented by Anthony J. Orshansky and Justin
Kachadoorian of Counselone, P.C. in Beverly Hills, Calif.  The
defendant is represented by Jon P. Karbassakis and Michael K.
Grimaldi of Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP, of Los Angeles.

The defendant removed the case to U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of California on Jan. 23.

SYNGENTA CORP: Mid-Missouri Farmers File GM Corn Class Action
-------------------------------------------------------------
Mark Slavit, writing for Connect Mid-Missouri, reports that some
Mid-Missouri farmers are part of 2 class action lawsuits involving
some genetically modified corn that can't be sold to China.

The farmers lost large amounts of money because of the alleged
practices of a Swiss-owned agricultural research company.

Columbia's A.W. Smith Law Firm is working with 3 other law firms
that played a major role in a recent $750 million settlement on
behalf of U.S. rice farmers.  This time the firms are working with
corn farmers.  The firms filed 2 class action lawsuits on behalf
of U.S. corn farmers who are losing money because they can't sell
their crops to China.  The lawsuits represent 86% of the corn
planted in the United States last year.  Law firms from St. Louis,
Texas and Alabama filed their class-action lawsuits against a
Switzerland-based company called Syngenta.  The suits allege
Syngenta caused economic harm to corn growers after the company
sold American farmers 2 genetically modified strains of corn that
have been outlawed in China.  China is a major importer of U.S.
corn. Chinese officials began refusing shipments of U.S. corn
after they found the genetic trait in American shipments.

A.W. Smith Law Firm spokesman Jeff Page said, "With the loss of
the Chinese market, prices for U.S. corn have plummeted from above
$7 and $8 per bushel to around $3 per bushel.  Losses to corn
growers and the industry, due to the loss of the Chinese market,
are estimated to be from $2 billion to $3 billion, and as the
lawsuit alleges, the corn growers' financial losses continue to
grow."

Some estimates indicate corn farmers could get back between 11 and
50 cents per bushel for harvests in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Columbia's A.W. Smith Law Firm is signing up Missouri corn farmers
now.

UBER TECH: Internal E-mails Made Public as Class Action Evidence
----------------------------------------------------------------
Carolyn Said, writing for San Francisco Chronicle, reports that
Uber's brash reputation evidently extends to the way its managers
talk about drivers. In forceful and sometimes crudely derisive
language, Uber bosses discussed when to fire drivers for the
on-demand ride service, according to internal company reports and
e-mails.

Uber was compelled to produce the documents as evidence for a
class-action lawsuit by California drivers seeking to be
considered Uber employees rather than independent contractors.
The company sought to have them kept under seal but a federal
judge ordered them made public.  The judge heard arguments on
Jan. 30 about whether the case should be dismissed, but made no
ruling.

The documents illuminate a sometimes-contemptuous culture that
would make a human resources manager cringe.

"Well guess what Sami, we are doing something: BANNING YOUR ASS
AGAIN," an Uber manager wrote about a driver who reportedly tried
to scam the system with fake rides.  The driver made "clearly pre-
arranged pickups for various client accounts, all of which turned
out to be fraudulent," the report said.

The managers' comments on firing -- or "deactivating," in Uber
parlance -- cut to the heart of the drivers' case.  The ability to
fire a worker is a key signal that a company is an employer, said
Shannon Liss-Riordan, a Boston attorney representing the drivers.
The California Supreme Court last year affirmed that carriers for
the Antelope Valley Newspapers were employees because the company
controlled the manner and means of their work, most notably having
the power to discharge them at will.

A similar lawsuit seeks employee status for California Lyft
drivers; that case was heard on Jan. 29 by a different federal
judge.  Uber and Lyft did not respond to requests for comment.
In both instances, Uber and Lyft are asking for summary judgments
to have the cases thrown out now.  Treating drivers as employees
would cost the companies a lot of money.  Rulings on allowing both
lawsuits could happen relatively soon; if they are allowed to
proceed, the cases will unfold over many months.

The Uber drivers' suit cites a range of other reasons why they
should be considered employees: Drivers are integral to the
company's business; Uber directs and controls their work; Uber
enforces driver requirements to promote its brand (for instance,
discouraging driving for Lyft); it provides drivers with equipment
such as an iPhone, the Uber app and its logo for their cars; it
determines driver compensation; and it sets standards for their
vehicles.

But it is the termination issue that may decide the case --
deciding whether Uber was simply severing relations with a
contractor or firing an employee.

"The comments show the ease with which managers feel they have the
right to terminate people," Ms. Liss-Riordan said.  "Uber claims
it doesn't control the drivers, but the whole point of the case is
that they do."

A San Francisco manager was particularly vehement in several e-
mails.  "HE'S F-- HORRIBLE. PLEASE DO IT (terminate him) ASAP!!!!"
he wrote about one driver.

To be sure, Uber needs to be able to fire drivers who engage in
conduct such as driving under the influence.  In fact, some
drivers clearly seemed ill-suited for their work.

"He needs anger management he punch one of our own client in his
face because he ask him few personal questions," a manager wrote
about one driver.

The company relies heavily on passenger ratings of drivers, who
can earn up to five stars per ride.  However, the messages show
that the cutoff point for termination varied.

"The documents regarding deactivation exemplify that Uber has the
right to terminate for whatever reasons it wants to, and its
managers somewhat cavalierly make comments," Ms. Liss-Riordan
said.

Interchanges such as "Get rid of this guy.  We need to make some
serious cuts of guys below 4.5," and a response from an Uber
manager: "Done via phone! Remote banning -- I love it" showed the
kind of callousness that critics contend characterizes Uber.

One lengthy interchange with a San Diego driver frustrated by
glitches in Uber's technology underscored drivers' reliance on the
service for earning a living.

Messages over five days showed the driver increasingly expressing
anger that he was losing money from system freezes, incorrect
addresses and other issues.

"I think you business nothing but a stupid model, you only care
about yourself then the driver suck it up with the major cost," he
wrote.  An Uber manager replied, "Google thinks we're a pretty
good business model," linking to a story about Google Ventures'
$258 million investment in Uber in 2013.  That amount has since
been dwarfed by several mega-funding rounds that brought the
company's war chest to over $4 billion and its valuation to over
$40 billion.

Another Uber manager stepped in to tell the San Diego driver: "we
have chosen to exercise our right to deactivate your account"
because of his disrespectful e-mails to the support team.
The driver quickly responded, apologizing and pleading for another
chance.

"I work hard . . . and stay up late nights to see difference in
pay," he wrote. "My responds were to express the frustration I
get. . . . It's a partnership as you said here, and expressing my
side of issues with no solution but to come and terminate me is
wrong."

It did not appear that Uber reconsidered his case.

A win by the drivers could seriously affect Uber and Lyft's bottom
lines.  The companies could be obligated to pay drivers' operating
expenses such as gas and vehicle maintenance.  The Uber lawsuit's
lead plaintiff told Reuters that his annual expenses topped
$10,000.  The companies could also be on the hook for Social
Security, workers' compensation and unemployment insurance.  As of
December, Uber had more than 160,000 active U.S. drivers in 161
cities, it said in a report in January.  Lyft, which is in 60
cities, has not released its driver numbers.

"They think they've come up with a brilliant new model by which
they can shift onto workers all the expenses of having a
business," Ms. Liss-Riordan said.  "California law doesn't allow
them to do that."

In the Jan. 30 hearing, U.S. District Judge Edward Chen appeared
skeptical of Uber's arguments that it's not a transportation
provider but merely a software provider that makes money by
licensing its app to drivers.  If that's so, why does it screen
drivers, set fares and sometimes terminate drivers, he asked its
attorneys.

They argued that Uber's much-maligned surge pricing bolsters its
claims that it's not an employer.  It must use incentives to
motivate drivers to work at certain times, they said, whereas if
it were an employer, it could simply order them to show up or be
deactivated.

Judge Chen didn't issue a ruling, but appeared inclined to let the
case proceed to trial.

In the Jan. 29 hearing on the Lyft drivers' case, U.S. District
Judge Vincent Chhabria said that California law appears to favor
the drivers' contention that they are employees, according to
Reuters, but he didn't issue a ruling.


UBS AG: FINRA Voids OT Suit Waiver, Class Action Attorney Argues
----------------------------------------------------------------
Stewart Bishop and Sindhu Sundar, writing for Law360, report that
an attorney for a proposed class of financial advisers for UBS
AG's broker-dealer unit on Jan. 30 urged the Second Circuit to
find they cannot be forced to arbitrate their overtime claims,
saying waivers of class actions are void under Financial Industry
Regulatory Authority rules.

During oral arguments over an appeal of a New York federal judge's
order finding the proposed class of current and former financial
advisers at UBS Financial Services Inc. must arbitrate their
claims, class attorney Jeffrey G. Smith -- smith@whafh.com -- of
Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP told a panel for the
appellate court that class action waivers signed by the advisers
are unenforceable, pursuant to FINRA Rule 13204(a).

"It is very clear that FINRA and the [U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission] wrote the rule to preserve the right of class members
to stay in court," Mr. Smith said.

UBS contends that arbitration clauses included in UBS'
compensation plans mandate the advisers to individually arbitrate
their claims.  In December 2012, U.S. District Judge Barbara Jones
agreed.

While the FINRA rule states that neither class action claims nor
claims involving the same defendants as those in a proposed class
action can be arbitrated under FINRA arbitration rules, absent
certain prerequisites, Judge Jones found the rule does not prevent
the enforcement of rights under the code or any other agreements.
But Smith contends that since the waiver violates FINRA rules, it
is void under the Exchange Act of 1934, which negates an agreement
that waives compliance with any rule of a self-regulatory
organization such as FINRA.

"The SEC is speaking for Congress," Mr. Smith said.  "Congress
delegated this area of authority to the SEC."

Since the SEC, based on the authority of Congress, concluded that
employees of FINRA member companies should be able to bring
employment-related class and collective actions, that rule is
entitled to so-called Chevron deference, Mr. Smith said.

"That means courts have to apply it in the same way they would a
statute," he said.

UBS attorney Mark A. Perry of Gibson Dunn argued that what the
FINRA rule in question actually says is that you can't arbitrate
claims in a class forum.

"What this rule says is the FINRA forum is not appropriate for
class actions," Mr. Perry said.  "What the agreement with the
employers says is we will never bring a class action, therefore
the rule doesn't apply."

All disputes in the securities industry have long been settled by
arbitration, Mr. Perry said, and class waivers like the ones at
issue have been upheld by the Supreme Court.

"The Supreme Court has said an advance waiver of class action is
fully enforceable under the [Federal Arbitration Act]," he said.

While the Exchange Act states that the SEC can't prohibit
agreements that require securities customers to arbitrate
disputes, Perry said it makes no such distinctions when it comes
to fights with employees of the securities sector.

"There's this very dramatic distinction between customer disputes
. . . and in the industry, where Congress has left it largely
alone," he said.

The panel, which included U.S. Circuit Judges Dennis Jacobs,
Richard C. Wesley and Susan L. Carney, reserved decision on the
matter.

The plaintiffs, including Eliot Cohen and four other financial
advisers, had made collective action claims for a federal group of
plaintiffs for claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act, as well
as class claims for a proposed class of "several thousand members"
on behalf of members from California, according to their third
amended complaint.

The advisers first brought their suit in April 2011, claiming that
UBS had not paid them overtime wages even though they had
regularly worked more than 40 hours a week.  Their jobs, which
involved selling financial products, also required them to meet
with clients for lunch and dinner, and that UBS had not reimbursed
them for that, according to the complaint.

UBS is represented by Mark A. Perry, Eugene Scalia --
escalia@gibsondunn.com -- Paul Blankenstein and Rachel E. Mondl --
rmondl@gibsondunn.com -- of Gibson Dunn.

The plaintiffs are represented by Jeffrey G. Smith, Robert Abrams
and Matthew M. Guiney -- guiney@whafh.com -- of Wolf Haldenstein
Adler Freeman & Herz LLP.

The case is Eliot Cohen v. UBS Financial Services Inc. et al.,
case number 14-781, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second
Circuit.


UNITED STATES: Investors Launch Class Action v. FSA
---------------------------------------------------
Judith Evans, writing for The Financial Times, reports that
investors in a suspended "death bond" fund are preparing to launch
a class action against the City regulator, arguing that a 2011
statement labelling the products as "toxic" led to a run on the
asset class.

The Life Settlements Action Group believes that the Financial
Services Authority, now superseded by the Financial Conduct
Authority, failed in its duty to investors when it issued the
warning, which prompted an exodus of retail investors from life
settlements funds.  Several of the funds, which invest in the life
insurance policies of US pensioners, have suspended redemptions.

The group is calling for investors in the suspended EEA Life
Settlements fund to join the legal action, which will start in
February.  The fund was last valued at GBP569 million and
investors have not been able to withdraw the majority of their
money since 2011.

"The actions of the then FSA constituted unprofessional behavior
and a serious failing in the regulator's duty of care towards
investors," said Peter Lihou, an investor leading the action
group.

The group is to argue that the 2011 announcement harmed investors'
"peaceful enjoyment of their possessions" under the Human Rights
Act, and also contravened financial services marketing law.

However, the FCA has defended its predecessor's record, while a
law firm handling several claims against advisers who recommended
life settlements products said this case had little chance of
success.

"The FCA remains of the view that our intervention in the market
was justified," the regulator said.

It said the FSA had issued several previous warnings that life
settlements products, which can be highly illiquid and difficult
to value, were not suitable for retail investors.

"The industry had not heeded these warnings and the market showed
signs of inappropriate expansion into the retail sector, with new
TLPI [traded life policy investments] products poised to enter the
market in place of products that had already failed," the FCA
said.

"A stronger, clearer warning to the industry and retail consumers
was therefore warranted."

Tobias Haynes, a paralegal at the law firm Regulatory Legal, said
that the case was "doomed to fail" because of the FSA's earlier
warnings about the risks of life settlements funds and, more
broadly, of unregulated investment schemes.

UK investors in three so-called "death bond" funds have been told
they may lose up to 70 per cent of their original investment and
cannot access their money for at least three years.

"The context of the claim proposed is that the failings were all
down to the 28 November 2011 FCA statement -- this simply cannot
be true," said Mr. Haynes.

"The investors would do better to chase their financial advisers,
who are truly the ones accountable in these matters."


UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA: Ramsay Makes First Public Statement
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Herald Sun reports that former North Carolina basketball player
Rashanda McCants said she and former UNC fullback Devon Ramsay
need teammates to help them go against not only their former
school but also the mighty NCAA.

"Although we all love our school, we also love ourselves and the
dignity we built within our own right," Ms. McCants said in a
statement containing her only public comments since lawyers filed
a class-action lawsuit on behalf of her and Mr. Ramsay.

The complaint filed at the Durham County courthouse claims both
UNC and the NCAA were complicit in steering hundreds of UNC
student-athletes to irregular classes that lacked faculty
involvement or attendance requirements.  That was done to keep
athletes eligible to play ball at UNC, a fact documented by an
investigation led by former federal prosecutor Kenneth Wainstein,
whom UNC hired to get to the bottom of the scam.

Ms. McCants and Mr. Ramsay, according to their lawyers, are just
two former UNC athletes "who were victims of one of the largest
academic scandals in college sports history."

The lawsuit claims Ms. McCants and Mr. Ramsay were among scores of
athletes who signed up to play ball at UNC in exchange for solid
educations.  UNC didn't keep its end of the deal, Mr. Ramsay said
in a statement, also his first public comments since the lawsuit
was filed.

"Unfortunately, these aren't just isolated incidents that occurred
at UNC," Mr. Ramsay said.  "This is a national problem, one that
continually surfaces at some of the most prestigious programs in
the country.  Where is the NCAA, which claims to protect their
'student athletes,' in all of this?

"And, most importantly, who suffers in the long run? It's the
athletes that are crippled.  The ones that risk their bodies for
the profits of their university.  On average, less than 2% of
these athletes will play at the professional level; therefore, it
is paramount that these athletes receive legitimate classes that
are worthy of their university."

"The NCAA is complicit in this system, because everything is
driven by money," said former N.C. Supreme Court Justice Bob Orr,
who is one of the lawyers representing Ms. McCants and Mr. Ramsay.

Mr. Ramsay attended UNC on a football scholarship from 2007-12.
Ms. McCants attended UNC on a basketball scholarship from 2005-09.

Their years of attendance coincide with the time -- 1993-2011 --
when irregular classes were offered in UNC's Department of African
and Afro-American Studies.  While non-athletes took the classes,
those courses literally were designed to keep UNC's ballplayers on
the playing fields and courts by not requiring the athletes to
attend classes in order to receive passing grades.  And
coursework for those classes was known to consist of sole writing
assignments that a secretary -- not a professor -- graded with
extreme generosity.  The scheme impacted roughly 3,100 students,
according to Wainstein's report.

Harvard Law School professor Charles J. Ogletree Jr. is among the
lawyers representing the plaintiffs.

Among the aims of the lawsuit is reforming college sports so that
athletes reasonably can receive quality educations, Orr said.  And
UNC somehow needs to make it right for the athletes who took the
bogus classes, he said.

"This suit isn't just about myself or Ms. McCants," Mr. Ramsay
said. "It's about protecting an opportunity that these young men
and women have earned from their dedication and hard work.  The
athletic scholarship they've received promises an education in
exchange for athletic participation and enrollment, but what
happens when their college or university offers a class that is
not legitimate by the university's own standards?"

Ms. McCants is the sister of Rashad McCants, who was on UNC's
basketball team when the Tar Heels won the national championship
in 2005.  He has been criticized for benefiting from the perks of
being a student-athlete but now saying UNC basketball coach Roy
Williams knew all about the phony classes he was taking.

Former Tar Heels who played with Rashad McCants have defended
Williams and said they went to class and did their own work.

Rashanda McCants is recruiting.

"I want to call on all athletes to stand with me and Devon
Ramsay," Rashanda McCants said.  "We must stand strong so that we
can be seen as more than just mere athletes.  We are humans; we
have voices.

"My intention is for people to know that I did everything that was
asked of me, on the court 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.  With this said, I hope and
pray my fellow athletes stand with me and Devon in this effort to
hold the powers that be accountable."

WALTER KIDDE: Recalls Disposable Fire Extinguishers
---------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with
Walter Kidde Portable Equipment Company Inc., of Mebane, North
Carolina, announced a voluntary recall of about 4.6 million units
of Kidde plastic valve disposable fire extinguishers in the U.S.
and 175,000 in Canada. Consumers should stop using this product
unless otherwise instructed.  It is illegal to resell or attempt
to resell a recalled consumer product.

A faulty valve component can cause the disposable fire
extinguishers not to fully discharge when the lever is repeatedly
pressed and released during a fire emergency, posing a risk of
injury.

This recall involves 31 models of Kidde disposable fire
extinguishers with Zytel(R) black plastic valves. The recalled
extinguishers are red, white or silver and are either ABC or BC
rated. The ratings can be found to the right of the nameplate.
Manufacture dates included in the recall are July 23, 2013 through
October 15, 2014. A 10-digit date code is stamped on the side of
the cylinder, near the bottom. Digits five through nine represent
the day and year of manufacture in DDDYY format. Date codes for
recalled units manufactured in 2013 are XXXX 20413 X through XXXX
36513 X and 2014 are XXXX 00114 X through XXXX 28814 X. A
nameplate affixed to the front of the fire extinguisher has one of
the following model numbers:

10BC
1A 10BC
1A 10BCW
2A10BC
5BC

Kidde has received 11 reports of the recalled fire extinguishers
failing to discharge as expected. No injuries have been reported.

Pictures of the Recalled Products available at:

The recalled products were manufactured in Mexico and Home Depot,
Menards, Walmart and other department, home and hardware stores
nationwide, and online from August 2013 through November 2014 for
between $18 and $65, and about $200 for model XL 5MR.

Consumers should immediately contact Kidde for a replacement fire
extinguisher.


WARNER MUSIC: Settles Intern Class Action for $725,000
------------------------------------------------------
Eriq Gardner, writing for The Hollywood Reporter, reports that
Warner Music Group has now become the largest music company to
resolve litigation over its past internship programs.  On Jan. 29,
the attorney for the plaintiffs wrote a letter to the judge
announcing that the substantive terms had been agreed upon by the
parties.

The lawsuit was a consolidated action brought by lead plaintiffs
Kyle Grant, who interned at Warner Bros.  Records from August 2012
to April 2013, and Justin Henry, who worked at WMG subsidiary
Atlantic Recording Corp. between October 2007 and May 2008.

Last May the plaintiffs, represented by attorneys at Virginia &
Ambinder and Leeds Brown, got a green light from the judge to put
out a class-action notice to an estimated 3,000 other individuals
who might be covered by the claims of labor violations.

The settlement will cover the class and the amount being paid by
WMG hasn't been revealed yet but will be by March 9, when the
parties are expected to seek the judge's preliminary approval.

WMG joins other companies including NBCUniversal, Viacom and ICM
Partners that have come to settlement agreements in the last few
months.  On Jan. 30, ICM revealed in court documents the terms of
its own settlement.  The talent agency will be paying up to
$725,000 to resolve claims.

Meanwhile, Fox is still fighting a summary judgment loss over its
lawsuits at an appeals court.  Also on Jan. 30, the 2nd Circuit
heard oral arguments in the case involving two interns who worked
on Black Swan over how to determine an "employer" under the Fair
Labor Standards Act.

Against this backdrop, new lawsuits over internships continue to
arrive on the court docket.

On Jan. 26, represented by the same lawyers who fought the battle
against WMG, Allyson Kocivar brought a lawsuit on behalf of
herself and other similarly situated against Wenner Media, parent
company of Us Weekly and Rolling Stone magazines.  Also that day,
Camille Demere filed a proposed class action against CBS
Corporation and CBS Radio.

WINNEBAGO INDUSTRIES: Recalls 145 Minnie Trailers
-------------------------------------------------
Starting date:             January 15, 2015
Type of communication:     Recall
Subcategory:               Travel Trailer
Notification type:         Safety Mfr
System:                    Accessories
Units affected:            145
Source of recall:          Transport Canada
Identification number:     2015013
TC ID number:              2015013

On certain travel trailers, the axle may come in contact with a
propane conduit.  If this occurs, the propane conduit could crack
and result in gas being released without any warning.  If the
propane gas continues to flow it could potentially ignite
resulting in a fire increasing the risk of injury and/or damage to
property.  Correction: Dealers will inspect and if needed install
a protective block to prevent further contact from the axle to the
propane conduit.

Affected products: 2013 Winnebago Minnie


WOODFORD TRANSPORTATION: Faces Class Actions Over Water Crisis
--------------------------------------------------------------
Tina Alvey, writing for Register-Herald Reporter, reports that two
class action lawsuits have been filed in Greenbrier Circuit Court
seeking recompense for damages allegedly incurred by area
businesses and individuals during the Lewisburg water system
outage in January.

The Lewisburg water plant was forced to shut down in the early
morning hours on Jan. 24, following a traffic accident up W.Va. 92
in the Alvon area that resulted in a spill of nearly 4,000 gallons
of diesel fuel into a tributary of Anthony Creek.  The creek flows
into the Greenbrier River, where the Lewisburg plant's Caldwell
intake is located.  Fearing contamination of the plant and the
treated water that flows out of it, city officials closed the
intake several hours before the leading edge of the fuel spill
reached Caldwell.

Despite 11th hour conservation efforts, the water system's holding
tanks had emptied by mid-afternoon Sunday, leaving more than
10,000 customers in a region reaching from Ronceverte to Renick
without running water.  The plant remained idle until testing of
the river around the intake was completed on Jan. 26, at which
time the plant was restarted and water began to fill the system's
pipes once again.

Less than 24 hours after the tanks ran dry, the first lawsuit
against the driver of the errant truck and the tanker's owners was
recorded in the Greenbrier Circuit Clerk's office.

In that suit, filed on Jan. 26, plaintiffs Kristie L. Bennett;
Tony Hill, along with his businesses Show Your Colors and Hill
Properties LLC; TWB Odyssey LLC, doing business as The Wild Bean;
and Roger Dolan Jr., individually and as a member of TWB Odyssey
LLC, accuse Kenneth Pritt, Woodford Transportation (sic) LLC, and
Woodford Oil Company of various forms of negligence, public and
private nuisance and outrageous conduct.

Ms. Bennett is listed in the suit as a daycare center employee who
suffered loss of income when the business where she works was
forced to close during the period when running water was
unavailable.  The other plaintiffs are either businesses that
closed during the water outage or the owners of those businesses.

In addition to loss of income, the suit claims that the "pipes,
filters and water systems of the customers in the affected area
may have become contaminated," and asserts, "diesel may have
leaked into the water supply and may have caused damage to
plaintiffs' personal and real property."

In claiming negligence, the Bennett suit asserts that Mr. Pritt --
the driver of the overturned tanker -- failed to "maintain proper
speed for the conditions," among other failings that led to his
truck's reported skid on black ice.  The driver's employer,
Woodford Transportation (sic) and its parent company, Woodford
Oil, share the responsibility for Mr. Pritt's alleged negligence,
according to the suit.

The Woodford companies are based in Elkins.  Mr. Pritt is from
Beverly.  According to Greenbrier County Sheriff Jan Cahill,
Mr. Pritt was not charged with a moving violation in connection
with the truck accident.
