ANTHEM INSURANCE: Dialysis One Suit Goes to N.D. Alabama
--------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Quality Dialysis One, L.L.C.,
f/k/a Quality Dialysis One, L.P. v. Blue Cross Blue Shield of
Alabama, et al., Case No. 4:15-cv-03491, was transferred from the
U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, to the
U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama
(Southern). The Northern District Court Clerk assigned Case No.
2:15-cv-02296-RDP to the proceeding.

According to the complaint, the Defendants have allegedly engaged
in a horizontal market allocation, which is illegal under quick
look or rule of reason analysis. The quid pro quo for this illegal
Market Allocation Conspiracy is a horizontal Price-Fixing and
Boycott Conspiracy under which every other Blue gets the benefit
of the artificially reduced prices that each Blue pays to
healthcare providers. The Price Fixing and Boycott Conspiracy
fixes those prices for all Blues, gives them the benefit of those
reduced, fixed prices and further provides that the participating
Blues will collectively boycott all Providers outside of their
Service Areas.

Quality Care Dialysis provides dialysis services. The company was
incorporated in 2010 and is based in Newtown, Pennsylvania.

CAMPBELL-EWALD: Class Action Ruling Favorable for Plaintiffs' Bar
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tony Mauro, writing for Law.com, reports that so far, so good for
the plaintiffs' bar in the latest batch of class action cases the
U.S. Supreme Court is considering this term.

The court ruled, 6-3, in Campbell-Ewald v. Gomez on Jan. 20 that a
plaintiff's refusal to accept a settlement offer does not mean the
lawsuit is over--thereby limiting the ability of the defense to
"pick off" plaintiffs by offering them relief.

"The plaintiffs' bar remains firmly in control of class actions"
as a result of the ruling, said Ropes & Gray litigation partner
John Donovan.  "They can continue to press class claims -- and
receive windfall attorneys' fees -- even though the ostensible
'representative' of the class has been offered complete relief and
has no claim of his own."

Because of the decision, according to Dorsey & Whitney partner
Ryan Mick, corporate defendants "may have lost an opportunity to
head off potentially massive class actions by offering to satisfy
the alleged damages of the usually small number of individuals who
may step forward" in cases involving relatively minor damages.

Paired with the November arguments in Tyson Foods v. Bouphakeo, in
which the justices seemed skeptical of the food company's effort
to defeat an employee class action, the Campbell-Ewald ruling
suggests that plaintiffs can still win class actions at the high
court.

"Contrary to what some corporations and their counsel believe, the
court is not willing to twist and pervert every aspect of the law
to limit or eliminate class actions," said Arthur Bryant, chairman
of Public Justice, which filed a brief in the case for the
plaintiffs.  In a recent National Law Journal column, Bryant
forecast possible trouble for defendants in several of the pending
class action cases this term.

In the case decided on Jan. 20, Jose Gomez was an unwilling
recipient of a text message promoting a career in the U.S. Navy,
sent by Campbell-Ewald Co., an advertising firm on contract to the
Navy.  Mr. Gomez initiated a class action based on the federal
Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

Just before Gomez sought class certification, the company offered
to pay him more than $1,500 for each text message he received,
plus other costs but not attorney fees.  Mr. Gomez declined, but
the company claimed the settlement offer mooted the lawsuit.  The
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit disagreed, keeping the
suit alive, and the high court upheld the decision.

"An unaccepted settlement offer has no force," Ginsburg wrote,
citing Rule 68 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, "Like
other unaccepted contract offers, it creates no lasting right or
obligation."  To rule otherwise, Ginsburg said, "would place the
defendant in the driver's seat." Justice Clarence Thomas wrote a
concurrence.

Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. wrote a sharply worded dissent,
joined by Justices Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito Jr.

"The problem for Gomez is that the federal courts exist to resolve
real disputes, not to rule on a plaintiff's entitlement to relief
already there for the taking," Justice Roberts wrote.  "Campbell
agreed to fully satisfy Mr. Gomez's claims.  That makes the case
moot, and Gomez is not entitled to a ruling on the merits of a
moot case."

Justice Roberts added, "Although Gomez nonetheless wants to
continue litigating, the issue is not what the plaintiff wants,
but what the federal courts may do."

The chief justice's dissent offered an alternative to class action
defendants that could lessen the impact of the decision. If a
defendant actually deposited a check representing the settlement
made payable to the plaintiff, rather than merely making a
settlement offer, Roberts said, the case for mootness might turn
out differently.

"This court leaves that question for another day--assuming there
are other plaintiffs out there who, like Gomez, won't take 'yes'
for an answer," Justice Roberts wrote.  In the majority opinion,
Ginsburg acknowledged that her ruling did not extend to the
scenario of a settlement check being deposited for a plaintiff.

Class action defense lawyers seized on the suggestion as a
possible way to make a plaintiff's suit moot.  "The court may have
just moved the target," said Roger Meyers, a litigation partner at
Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn in Detroit.  Roberts' dissent,
Meyers said, is "effectively an invitation to try that approach.
I think we will see defendants viewing that as a practical
suggestion."


CAMPBELL-EWALD: Defense Lawyers Say Clients Still Have Options
--------------------------------------------------------------
Ross Todd,  writing for The Recorder, reports that the class
action defense bar learned on Jan. 20 that it won't be getting
everything it asked for this term from the U.S. Supreme Court.
Ruling 6-3 in Campbell-Ewald v. Gomez, the high court held that a
defendant can't kill a class action simply by offering to pay
named plaintiffs in full.

The decision, which affirms a ruling from the U.S. Court of
Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, drew cheers from plaintiffs lawyers
who hope that it signals that the court may go their way in the
term's other blockbuster class action cases.  Meanwhile both sides
acknowledge that the ruling leaves the door open to other defense
tactics meant to pick off lead plaintiffs.
Specifically, the majority declined to address whether a case
could be mooted if a defendant goes beyond offering a settlement
and actually deposits funds with the court.

"I foresee us going back to the Supreme Court on these exact
issues in three to four years," said plaintiffs lawyer Abbas
Kazerounian from the Kazerouni Law Group in Costa Mesa.

In the case decided on Jan. 20, Jose Gomez sued the Detroit-based
advertising firm Campbell-Ewald Co. after receiving an unwanted
text message promoting career opportunities in the U.S. Navy.
Gomez sued the company under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act
on behalf of himself and similarly situated individuals.

Prior to a hearing on class certification, lawyers for Campbell-
Ewald sought to resolve the case by offering Gomez $1,500, the
full amount of statutory damages he could claim under the TCPA.
In the majority opinion, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote that
the settlement offer had the effect of any other unaccepted
contract and once the offer had lapsed, Mr. Gomez remained
"emptyhanded."

"Like other unaccepted contract offers, it creates no lasting
right or obligation.  With the offer off the table, and the
defendant's continuing denial of liability, adversity between the
parties persists," she wrote.

Ruling otherwise, Judge Ginsburg wrote, would "place the defendant
in the driver's seat."

The decision is a win for visiting Stanford Law School professor
Jonathan Mitchell, a former solicitor general of Texas. Gregory
Garre of Latham & Watkins, a former U.S. solicitor general, argued
for Campbell-Ewald.

Defense lawyers had hoped for a different outcome that would allow
them to dismantle class actions by offering to make lead
plaintiffs whole.  In an interview with The National Law Journal,
a Recorder affiliate, Dorsey & Whitney partner Ryan Mick said
corporate defendants "may have lost an opportunity to head off
potentially massive class actions."

Despite the apparent setback, some defense lawyers said that the
opinion left their clients with options.

Severson & Werson's Eric Troutman, who often defends clients in
TCPA cases, said he doesn't see signs that the court is shifting
toward a more class action-friendly posture.  Mr. Troutman called
the majority's approach "pretty narrow." The court didn't address
what would follow if a defendant fully paid out the potential
damages to a lead plaintiff, he noted.

Morrison & Foerster's Sylvia Rivera agreed. "I think this will
cause practitioners and defendants to consider whether it might
make sense to not only make an offer of settlement but actually
tender the funds, and deposit them in an account in the plaintiffs
name," Ms. Rivera said.

EBIX INC: Delaware Chancery Court Narrows Stockholder Suit
----------------------------------------------------------
Vice Chancellor John Noble of the Delaware Court of Chancery
granted, in part, the motion to dismiss in the case captioned, In
re Ebix, Inc. Stockholder Litigation, Case No. 8526-vcn (Del.
Ch.).

Ebix, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015, for the quarterly
period ended September 30, 2015, that on June 6, 2013, the Company
was notified that the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of
Georgia had opened an investigation into allegations of
intentional misconduct that had been brought to its attention from
the pending shareholder class action lawsuit against the Company's
directors and officers, the media and other sources. The Company
has cooperated with the U.S. Attorney's office.

Following the announcement on May 1, 2013 of the Company's
execution of a merger agreement with affiliates of Goldman Sachs &
Co., twelve putative class action complaints challenging the
proposed merger were filed in the Delaware Court of Chancery.
These complaints name as Defendants some combination of the
Company, its directors, Goldman Sachs & Co. and affiliated
entities.  On June 10, 2013, the twelve complaints were
consolidated by the Delaware Court of Chancery, now captioned In
re Ebix, Inc. Stockholder Litigation, CA No. 8526-VCN.

On June 19, 2013, the Company announced that the merger agreement
had been terminated pursuant to a Termination and Settlement
Agreement dated June 19, 2013. After Defendants moved to dismiss
the consolidated proceeding, Lead Plaintiffs amended their
operative complaint to drop their claims against Goldman Sachs &
Co. and focus their allegations on an Acquisition Bonus Agreement
("ABA") between the Company and Robin Raina.

On September 26, 2013, Defendants moved to dismiss the Amended
Consolidated Complaint. On July 24, 2014, the Court issued its
Memorandum Opinion that granted in large part the Company's Motion
to Dismiss and narrowed the remaining claims. The only remaining
counts are as follows: (i) Counts II and IV, but only to the
extent the Plaintiffs seek non-monetary relief for alleged
material misstatements related to the ABA base price in the 2010
Proxy Statement; (ii) Count II, but only to the extent it
challenges the continued existence of the ABA as an alleged
unreasonable anti-takeover device; and, (iii) Count V, but only to
the extent that it relates to the compensation the Board received
under the Company's 2010 Stock Incentive Plan.

On September 15, 2014, the Court entered an Order implementing its
Memorandum Opinion. On January 16, 2015, the Court entered an
Order permitting Plaintiffs to file a Second Amended and
Supplemented Complaint.

As currently pled, the Second Amended and Supplemented Complaint
asserts (i) a purported class and derivative claim for breach of
fiduciary duty by the individual Defendants in improperly
maintaining the ABA as an unreasonable anti-takeover device; (ii)
a purported class claim against the individual Defendants for
breach of the fiduciary duty of disclosure to the stockholders
with respect to the Company's 2010 Proxy Statement and 2010 Stock
Incentive Plan, (iii) a purported derivative claim against the
individual Defendants for breach of fiduciary duty to the Company
in causing incentive compensation to be awarded to themselves and
others under the 2010 Stock Incentive Plan, (iv) a purported class
and derivative claim for breach of fiduciary duty by the
individual Defendants in adopting the August 5, 2014 Credit
Agreement, the November 26, 2014 Director Nomination Agreement
with Barrington Capital Group, L.P. and certain bylaw amendments
adopted December 19, 2014, (v) a purported class and derivative
claim seeking invalidation of the December 19, 2014 bylaw
amendments under Delaware law, and (vi) a purported class claim
for breach of fiduciary duty by the individual Defendants for
issuing a purportedly materially misleading and incomplete 2014
Proxy Statement.

On February 10, 2015, Defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss the
Second Amended and Supplemented Complaint. The Company denies any
liability and intends to defend the action vigorously.

Defendants have moved to dismiss on the grounds that two
settlements approved by the United States District Court for the
Northern District of Georgia extinguished the Second Amended
Complaint's counts related to executive compensation, certain
claims are moot, and remaining counts fail under Court of Chancery
Rule 12(b)(6).

In the Memorandum Opinion and Order dated January 15, 2016,
available at http://is.gd/Ah7OGTfrom Leagle.com, Judge Noble held
that Plaintiffs' attempt to nip Defendants' release defense in the
bud fails and Plaintiffs are correct that the Federal Derivative
Action Settlement does not bar any direct claims asserted in
Counts I-III. Neither federal settlement had the capacity to
preclude Counts I-III of the action.

"The complaint names as defendants EZCORP, Inc., Paul E. Rothamel
(our former chief executive officer) and Mark Kuchenrither (our
current chief financial officer and our chief operating officer)
and asserts violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934," the Company said. "In general,
the complaint alleges that the implementation of certain strategic
and growth initiatives were less successful than represented by
the defendants, that certain of the Company's business units and
investments were not performing as well as represented by the
defendants and that, as a result, the defendants' disclosures and
statements about the Company's business and operations were
materially false and misleading at all relevant times."

"On October 17, 2014, the Automotive Machinists Pension Plan, also
purporting to be the holder of Class A Non-voting Common Stock and
acting for itself and on behalf of other similarly situated
holders of Class A Non-voting Common Stock, filed a lawsuit in the
United Stated District Court for the Southern District of New York
styled Automotive Machinists Pension Plan v. EZCORP, Inc., et al
(Case No. 1:14-cv-8349-ALC). The complaint names EZCORP, Inc., Mr.
Rothamel and Mr. Kuchenrither as defendants, but also names Mr.
Cohen and MS Pawn Limited Partnership. The complaint likewise
asserts violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934, as well as Rule 10b-5 promulgated
thereunder, alleging generally that (1) EZCORP and the officer
defendants (Mr. Rothamel and Mr. Kuchenrither) issued false and
misleading statements and omissions concerning the business and
prospects, and compliance history, of the Company's online lending
operations in the U.K. and the nature of the Company's consulting
relationship with entities owned by Mr. Cohen and the process the
Board of Directors used in agreeing to it, and (2) Mr. Cohen and
MS Pawn Limited Partnership, as controlling persons of EZCORP,
participated in the preparation and dissemination of the Company's
disclosures and controlled the Company's business strategy and
activities.

"On October 21, 2014, the plaintiff in the Automotive Machinists
Pension Plan action filed a motion to consolidate the Close action
and the Automotive Machinists Pension Plan action and to appoint
the Automotive Machinists Pension Plan as the lead plaintiff. On
November 18, 2014, the court consolidated the two lawsuits under
the caption In Re EZCORP, Inc. Securities Litigation (Case No.
1:14-cv-06834-ALC), and on January 16, 2015, appointed the lead
plaintiff and lead counsel.

On March 13, 2015, the lead plaintiff filed a Consolidated Amended
Class Action Complaint (the "Amended Complaint"). The Amended
Complaint asserts violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as well as Rule 10b-5 promulgated
thereunder, alleging generally that:

     * EZCORP and the officer defendants (Mr. Rothamel and Mr.
Kuchenrither) issued false and misleading statements and omissions
regarding the Company's online lending operations in the U.K.
(Cash Genie) and Cash Genie's compliance history;

     * EZCORP and the officer defendants issued false and
misleading statements and omissions regarding the nature of the
Company's consulting relationship with Madison Park LLC (an entity
owned by Mr. Cohen) and the process the Board of Directors used in
agreeing to it;

     * EZCORP's financial statements were false and misleading,
and violated GAAP and SEC rules and regulations, by failing to
properly recognize impairment charges with respect to the
Company's investment in Albemarle & Bond; and

     * Mr. Cohen and MS Pawn Limited Partnership, as controlling
persons of EZCORP, were aware of and controlled the Company's
alleged false and misleading statements and omissions.

The defendants have filed motions to dismiss, and the parties have
submitted their respective supporting and opposing briefs. That
motion is pending before the Court.

"We cannot predict the outcome of the litigation, but we intend to
continue to defend vigorously against all allegations and claims,"
the Company said.


FACEBOOK INC: Settles Class Action Over Minors' Online Purchases
----------------------------------------------------------------
Ross Todd, writing for Law.com, reports that as part of a deal to
settle a class action lawsuit, Facebook Inc. has agreed to make it
simpler for minors to get refunds for online purchases.

In court papers on Jan. 15, the company agreed to make it clearer
to minors that they need their parents' permission when making
purchases on Facebook.

The proposed deal, which provides no cash to class members, is
subject to approval from U.S. District Judge Beth Labson Freeman
of the Northern District of California.

C. Brooks Cutter, of Cutter Law, lead counsel for the plaintiffs,
said that Judge Freeman made it clear at the class certification
hearing in the case last year that she was "never going to certify
a class for damages."

"Given that, we achieved everything that we thought that was
obtainable for the class," said Mr. Cutter, whose group is seeking
$1.25 million in attorney fees and roughly $29,000 in costs.

The plaintiffs, a group of parents suing on behalf of children who
allegedly racked up hundreds of dollars in charges making
purchases in Facebook applications, sued the social networking
site in 2012.  They claimed that the company's refusal to refund
the money violated various California state consumer protection,
business and family laws.

Judge Freeman, who took the case over in 2014 after taking the
federal bench, certified a nationwide class of minor Facebook
users in March on claims for injunctive and declaratory relief
under the California Family Code.  Judge Freeman, however, denied
the plaintiffs' bid to certify a class to pursue restitution
finding that the amount due each class member would depend on
individual circumstances and "thus cannot be determined
formulaically."

Following Judge Freeman's decision, the parties met for an all-day
mediation session in August with Edward Infante, the Northern
District of California's former chief magistrate judge who is now
a mediator at JAMS.  Judge Infante continued to supervise
settlement discussions through December when the current deal was
reached.  In a declaration filed with the settlement papers on
Jan. 15, Judge Infante wrote that he backed the proposed
settlement.

"In my opinion, given the only claim available to plaintiffs after
Facebook's successive motions to dismiss was their claim for
declaratory relief, I do not think any kind of class-wide remedy
of damages or restitution could ever be awarded in this case,"
Judge Infante wrote.

As part of the deal, Facebook has agreed to keep language in its
app developer agreements for three years that makes clear that
transactions with minors may be voidable.  The company also agreed
to include a checkbox on its refund request form to indicate when
a purchase was made by a minor and to train employees to deal with
those requests. The company also agreed to include the following
statement on purchase receipts sent to minors in the U.S.: "Please
always make sure you have your parent or guardian's consent to use
their payment sources."

A Facebook spokesperson said in an emailed statement that the
proposed deal "provides a fair and reasonable resolution of the
claims raised in the case."

"Although our existing practices comply with applicable law, we
have agreed to enhance our disclosures and processes relating to
refund requests," the spokesperson wrote.

Facebook was represented in the suit by a team from Cooley led by
Michael Rhodes.

Sacramento's Cutter Law, Washington, D.C.'s Katz, Marshall &
Banks, and Brookline, Mass., solo practitioner Benjamin Edelman
represented plaintiffs.

GENERAL CABLE: 6th Circuit Appeal Pending
-----------------------------------------
General Cable Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015, for
the quarterly period ended October 2, 2015, that an appeal by
class action plaintiffs to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals is
pending.

"We have been reviewing, with the assistance of external counsel,
certain commission payments involving sales to customers of our
subsidiary in Angola," the Company said. "The review has focused
upon payment practices with respect to employees of public utility
companies, use of agents in connection with such payment
practices, and the manner in which the payments were reflected in
our books and records. We have determined at this time that
certain employees in our Portugal and Angola subsidiaries directly
and indirectly made or directed payments at various times from
2002 through 2013 to officials of Angola government-owned public
utilities that raise concerns under the FCPA and possibly under
the laws of other jurisdictions. Based on an analysis completed
with the assistance of our external counsel and forensic
accountants, we have concluded at this time, that we are able to
reasonably estimate the profit derived from sales made to the
Angolan government-owned public utilities in connection with the
payments described above which we believe is likely to ultimately
be disgorged. As a result, we recorded an estimated charge in the
amount of $24 million as an accrual as of December 31, 2014. There
was no change to the accrual in the three or nine months ended
October 2, 2015. The accrued amount reflects the probable and
estimable amount of the Angola-related profits that the Company
believes is subject to being disgorged, and does not include any
provision for any fines, civil or criminal penalties, or other
relief, any or all of which could be substantial."

"We also have been reviewing, with the assistance of external
counsel, our use and payment of agents in connection with our
Thailand and India operations and certain transactions in our
Egypt and China businesses, which may have implications under the
FCPA. We have voluntarily disclosed these matters to the SEC and
the DOJ and have provided them with additional information at
their request, including information in response to an SEC
subpoena. The SEC and DOJ inquiries into these matters are
ongoing. We continue to cooperate with the DOJ and the SEC with
respect to these matters. At this time, we are unable to predict
the nature of any action that may be taken by the DOJ or SEC or
any remedies these agencies may pursue as a result of such
actions.

"We have hired a stand-alone Chief Compliance Officer who is
responsible for the day-to-day management of our compliance
function and reports to our Chief Executive Officer with a
reporting relationship to the Audit Committee. The Chief
Compliance Officer has hired a compliance team that is focused on
building a robust ethics and compliance program that incorporates
systems and disciplined processes for ongoing risk assessments,
training, communications, proactive compliance audits and
management of reporting concerns. We are continuing to implement
an approval program for third parties that we use outside of the
United States including a review of the agreements under which
they were retained and a risk-based assessment of these third
parties to determine the scope of due diligence measures to be
performed by a third-party investigative firm. We also have
provided specific anti-corruption training to our global sales
force, and provided an interactive online anti-corruption training
to all salaried employees.

"We conducted internal investigations, subject to the oversight of
the Audit Committee of our Board of Directors and with the
assistance of external counsel, principally relating to matters
resulting in restatements of a number of our previously issued
financial statements. The matters addressed in the investigations
included (i) inventory accounting errors addressed in the
restatements, including those resulting from inventory theft in
Brazil, as well as the timing of internal reporting of the
inventory accounting issues to senior corporate management at our
headquarters in Highland Heights, Kentucky and (ii) historical
revenue recognition accounting practices with regard to "bill and
hold" sales in Brazil related to aerial transmission projects,
including instances where we determined that the requirements for
revenue recognition under GAAP with respect to the bill and hold
sales were not met.  ("Bill and hold" sales generally are sales
meeting specified criteria under GAAP that enable the seller to
recognize revenue at the time title to goods and ownership risk is
transferred to the customer, even though the seller does not ship
the goods until a later time. In typical sales transactions other
than those accounted for as bill and hold, title to goods and
ownership risk is transferred to the customer at the time of
shipment or delivery.)

"In connection with these matters, among others, our management
identified control deficiencies that constituted material
weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting. These
material weaknesses resulted in accounting errors that caused us
to issue two sets of restated financial statements.

"In March 2013, principally to correct the inventory accounting
errors, we issued restated consolidated financial statements as of
December 31, 2011 and 2010 and for the years ended December 31,
2011, 2010 and 2009, and unaudited restated financial statements
for interim periods in 2011 and interim periods ended on March 30,
2012 and June 29, 2012.

"In January 2014, principally to correct errors relating to
revenue recognition with respect to the bill and hold sales, we
issued restated consolidated financial statements (which also
encompassed matters addressed in the earlier restatement) as of
December 31, 2012, 2011 and 2010 and for the years ended December
31, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009, and unaudited restated financial
statements for interim periods in 2011 and 2012 and the interim
period ended on March 29, 2013.

"We voluntarily contacted the SEC to advise it of our initial
internal investigation, and we have continued to provide
information to the SEC on an ongoing basis, including, among other
things, information regarding the matters described above and
certain earnings management activities by employees prior to the
end of 2012. . . . These earnings management activities (none of
which identified to date had a material effect on our consolidated
financial statements) were designed to delay the reporting of
expenses or other charges, including improper capitalization of
costs, misuse of accruals and failure to timely report inventory
shortfalls identified through physical inventory counts. The SEC
has issued a formal order of investigation. Pursuant to the formal
order, the SEC issued subpoenas to us seeking relevant documents
and to certain of our current and former employees seeking their
testimony. The SEC has requested information regarding, among
other things, the above-described Angola matter, matters that were
subject to our internal investigations and earnings management
activities by employees. We continue to cooperate with the SEC in
connection with its investigation.

"Any determination that our operations or activities are not in
compliance with existing laws or regulations could result in the
imposition of substantial fines, civil and criminal penalties, and
equitable remedies, including disgorgement and injunctive relief.
Because the government investigations and our review regarding
commission payment practices and our use and payment of agents
described above are ongoing, we are unable to predict their
duration, scope, results, or consequences. Dispositions of these
types of matters can result in modifications to business practices
and compliance programs, and in some cases the appointment of a
monitor to review future business and practices with the objective
of effecting compliance with the FCPA and other applicable laws.
At this time, we cannot reasonably estimate the amount or range of
additional possible loss that we may incur above the amount
accrued to date in connection with the foregoing matters.

"Litigation was initiated against us and certain of our current
and former directors, executive officers and employees following
the restating of our financial statements principally as a result
of the matters . . . relating to our Brazilian business.

"Two civil complaints were filed in the United States District
Court for the Southern District of New York on October 21, 2013
and December 4, 2013 by named plaintiffs, on behalf of purported
classes of persons who purchased or otherwise acquired our
publicly traded securities, against us, Gregory Kenny, our former
President and Chief Executive Officer, and Brian Robinson, our
Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

"On our motion, the complaints were transferred to the United
States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, the
actions were consolidated, and a consolidated complaint was filed
in that Court on May 20, 2014 by City of Livonia Employees
Retirement System, as lead plaintiff on behalf of a purported
class of all persons or entities who purchased our securities
between November 3, 2010 and October 14, 2013 (the "City of
Livonia Complaint"). The City of Livonia Complaint alleged claims
under the antifraud and controlling person liability provisions of
the Exchange Act, alleging generally, among other assertions, that
we employed inadequate internal financial reporting controls that
resulted in, among other things, improper revenue recognition,
understated cost of sales, overstated operating income, net income
and earnings per share, and the failure to detect inventory lost
through theft; that we issued materially false financial results
that had to be restated on two occasions; and that statements of
Messrs. Kenny and Robinson that they had tested and found
effective our internal controls over financial reporting and
disclosure were false. The City of Livonia Complaint alleged that
as a result of the foregoing, our stock price was artificially
inflated and the plaintiffs suffered damages in connection with
their purchase of our stock. The City of Livonia Complaint sought
damages in an unspecified amount; reasonable costs and expenses,
including counsel and experts fees; and such equitable injunctive
or other relief as the Court deems just and proper.

"On January 27, 2015, the Court dismissed the City of Livonia
Complaint, with prejudice, based on plaintiff's failure to state a
claim upon which relief could be granted. On February 24, 2015,
plaintiff filed a motion to alter or amend the January 27, 2015
judgment and for leave to file the proposed amended complaint,
which the lower Court also denied.

"On June 9, 2015, plaintiff appealed the lower Court's decisions
to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, which appeal is currently
pending."


GENERAL MOTORS: Scheuer Evidence in Ignition Switch Case Weak
-------------------------------------------------------------
Mark Hamblett, writing for New York Law Journal, reports that the
first bellwether trial chosen by plaintiffs to try to hold General
Motors liable for defective ignition switches fell apart on Jan.
21.

With lawyers for the automaker poised to present evidence that
plaintiff Robert Scheuer and his wife, Lisa Scheuer, lied about
his injuries following the 2014 crash of his Saturn Ion and
misrepresented the financial consequences of those injuries,
Southern District Judge Jesse Furman said he had to assume the
couple had committed "a fraud on the court and on the jury."

Judge Furman told both sides that, given the new evidence and the
weakness of the Scheuer evidence to date, "It might make sense to
make this case go away," and he urged settlement talks that began
almost immediately.

"I don't think it's even a close call," Furman said about
admitting General Motors' evidence that just came to light.
Judge Furman allowed GM, set to begin its case on Jan. 22, to add
two witnesses to its list:

Robert Kleven, an Oklahoma realtor who GM said would testify that
Robert Scheuer apparently altered or fabricated a $441,431 check
stub from the federal government's retirement fund "and then
texted a picture of the check stub to Mr. Kleven to induce him to
allow plaintiff and his wife to live in their 'dream house,'" even
though Scheuer knew he didn't have the money to close on the
house.  Mr. Kleven, GM said in court papers, reached out to GM
after hearing a radio account about the start of the trial.

The second witness is a forensics expert who will analyze the
authenticity of text messages and other communications and
documents exchanged between Messrs. Kleven and Scheuer that would
undermine Mr. Scheuer's claim of being incapacitated in the months
following the accident.  The papers note that, in addition to the
judge and the jury, the 49-year-old mailman may have "misled his
own counsel."

It had already been rough going for Mr. Scheuer in the first of
six bellwether trials, with each side picking three, to set the
parameters for settlement of some 300 cases in the multi-district
litigation.

The problem for the plaintiffs was that the Scheuer case was one
they selected.

General Motors was forced to issue a massive and belated recall of
cars in 2014 after it was revealed that the ignition switch could
inadvertently be turned from the "on" to the "accessory" position,
thus shutting down the car's power steering and brake system and
preventing air bags from deploying.

Mr. Scheuer testified that he got the recall notices and followed
instructions to have only the ignition key on his keychain, but he
still asserted ignition failure was the reason his air bags failed
to deploy when he swerved to avoid another vehicle and crashed
into the trees in Bristow, Oklahoma, on May 28, 2014.  He claimed
he was rendered unconscious for roughly three hours.

Mr. Scheuer claimed back and neck injuries from the accident, but
he did not fare well on the witness stand, as he was grilled by GM
lawyers about pre-existing back and neck injuries, including
surgeries, going back over 20 years before the accident, and the
fact that he made two calls to his voicemail while supposedly
passed out behind the wheel of his damaged car.

Armed with the new evidence, GM lawyer Richard Godfrey, a partner
at Kirkland & Ellis, asked for Lisa Scheuer to return to the
witness stand to challenge her testimony on both the home loan and
her husband's injuries -- injuries Robert Scheuer testified made
him unable to recall anything concerning the loan transaction in
the months following the accident.

"This jury is entitled to hear the truth," Mr. Godfrey said.


GRAFTECH INTERNATIONAL: Facing Suits over Brookfield Deal
---------------------------------------------------------
GrafTech International Ltd., in its Form 10-Q Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015, for
the quarterly period ended September 30, 2015, disclosed pending
litigation related to the Company's merger deal with Brookfield.

On August 17, 2015, the Company was acquired by affiliates of
Brookfield Asset Management Inc. A number of putative class action
complaints have been filed relating to the merger.  The lawsuits,
which contain substantially similar allegations, include
allegations that the transactions do not appropriately value the
Company, were the result of an inadequate process, include
preclusive deal protection devices, involved conflicts of
interests and further allege that the public disclosures made by
the Company in connection with such transactions were materially
misleading. GrafTech, Brookfield and Brookfield's affiliates are
alleged to have aided and abetted the alleged fiduciary breaches.
The lawsuits seek a variety of equitable relief, including
rescission of the Merger, in addition to damages arising from the
defendants' alleged breaches and attorneys' fees and costs. The
defendants believe that the allegations are without merit and
intend to vigorously defend the lawsuits.

dismissal on June 4, 2015.  The plaintiffs filed a petition for
writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court of the United States. On

These related class action lawsuits were filed on the dates

of Texas: John Phillips v. Harvest Natural Resources, Inc., James
A. Edmiston and Stephen C. Haynes (March 22, 2013) ("Phillips

HAIN CELESTIAL: Working to Finalize Accord in Calif. Suit
---------------------------------------------------------
The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2015, that the
Company is currently working with the plaintiffs in a consolidated
class action lawsuit in California to finalize a settlement.

On May 11, 2011, Rosminah Brown, on behalf of herself and all
other similarly situated individuals, as well as a non-profit
organization, filed a putative class action in the Superior Court
of California, Alameda County against the Company. The complaint
alleged that the labels of certain Avalon Organics(R) brand and
JASON(R) brand personal care products used prior to the Company's
implementation of ANSI/NSF-305 certification in mid-2011 violated
certain California statutes.

Defendants removed the case to the United States District Court
for the Northern District of California. The action was
consolidated with a subsequently-filed putative class action
containing substantially identical allegations concerning only the
JASON(R) brand personal care products. The consolidated actions
sought an award for damages, injunctive relief, costs, expenses
and attorney's fees.

In July 2015, the Company reached an agreement in principle with
the plaintiffs to settle the class action for $7,500,000 in
addition to the distribution of consumer coupons up to a value of
$2,000,000. In connection with the proposed settlement, the
Company recorded a charge of $5,725,000 in the fourth quarter of
fiscal 2015 (a separate charge of $1,975,000 was recorded in prior
years). The Company is currently working with the plaintiffs to
finalize the matter.

INVESTMENT TECHNOLOGY: Defending N.Y. Class Suits over SEC Probe
----------------------------------------------------------------
Investment Technology Group, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9,
2015, for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2015, that the
Company is a party to putative class action lawsuits have been
filed with respect to the Company and certain of its current and
former executives in connection with the Company's announcement of
an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

On August 12, 2015, the Company reached a final settlement with
the staff of the Division of Enforcement of the SEC in connection
with the SEC's investigation into a proprietary trading pilot
operated within AlterNet for sixteen months in 2010 through mid-
2011. The investigation was focused on customer disclosures, Form
ATS regulatory filings and customer information controls relating
to the pilot's trading activity, which included (a) crossing
against sell-side clients in POSIT and (b) violations of Company
policy and procedures by a former employee.  These violations
principally involved information breaches for a period of several
months in 2010 regarding sell-side parent orders flowing into
ITG's algorithms and executions by all customers in non-POSIT
markets that were not otherwise available to ITG clients.
According to the terms of the settlement, the Company paid an
aggregate amount of $20.3 million, representing a civil penalty of
$18 million, disgorgement of approximately $2.1 million in trading
revenues and prejudgment interest of approximately $250,000. The
$20.3 million settlement amount was reserved in the second quarter
of 2015. During the three and nine months ended September 30,
2015, the Company incurred legal and other costs related to this
matter of $2.6 million, and $4.9 million, respectively.

In connection with the announcement of the SEC investigation, two
putative class action lawsuits were filed with respect to the
Company and certain of its current and former executives.  One
lawsuit, captioned Shah v. Investment Technology Group, Inc. et
al., was filed on August 5, 2015, in the United States District
Court for the Central District of California (the "CDCA"), while
the other, Bernacchi v. Investment Technology Group, Inc. et al.,
was filed on August 12, 2015, in the United States District Court
for the Southern District of New York (the "SDNY").  The
complaints allege, among other things, that the defendants made
material misrepresentations or omitted to disclose material facts
concerning, among other subjects, the matters that were the
subject of the SEC settlement regarding AlterNet, and the SEC
investigation that led to the SEC settlement.  The complaints seek
an unspecified amount of damages under the federal securities
laws.

In October 2015, the Shah action was transferred to the SDNY,
where it is anticipated it will be consolidated with the Bernacchi
action.  The Company cannot predict the outcome of these actions,
but intends to defend them vigorously.

JANI-KING: 3rd Circuit Hears Oral Arguments in Franchisee Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
P.J. D'Annunzio, The Legal Intelligencer, reports that attorneys
representing parties embroiled in a class action over pay
deductions argued in federal appeals court over whether--workers
in a cleaning service franchise were considered independent
contractors or employees of the franchisor.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit heard argument on
Jan. 20 in Williams v. Jani-King of Philadelphia.  The defendant,
the Jani-King cleaning franchise, appealed the district court's
certification of a class consisting of those who signed franchise
agreements with Jani-King.  The plaintiffs claimed that they were
mischaracterized as independent contractors and not as employees
under Pennsylvania's Wage Payment and Collection Law, resulting in
improper wage deductions by the franchisor.

To determine whether the franchisees were employees or independent
contractors, the question of who had control over the day-to-day
operations of the individual cleaning business had to be answered,
Jani-King's counsel, Aaron D. Van Oort, argued.

Mr. Van Oort told the three-judge panel consisting of Third
Circuit Judges D. Michael Fisher, Michael A. Chagares and Robert
E. Cowen that even though Jani-King offered its franchisees the
business model and use of its name, it did not control the way the
individual shops did business.

"Simply deciding what work is offered does not indicate control,"
Mr. Van Oort said, adding the franchisor did not have the right to
micromanage the individual franchisees.

Chagares said that rather than quibble about who had control over
the end result of the work, it should be determined whether Jani-
King had the ability to amend the franchise agreement to change
how the cleaning work was done.

"Couldn't you amend everything?" he asked.

Mr. Van Oort said there were constraints on Jani-King's right to
amend what it can control.  The agreement stated, according to Van
Oort, that the franchisee has the responsibility of time and
method of providing services.

Mr. Van Oort said the plaintiffs' claims that Jani-King oversaw
quality control did not prove that it had control over day-to-day
-operations, nor was it relevant.

"Quality controls, even really invasive ones, are not the
evidence," Mr. Van Oort said.

Judge Fisher asked Mr. Van Oort to explain how the evidence fit
within the context of the appeal against class certification.

Mr. Van Oort claimed the only evidence the class members had to
show that Jani-King was in charge were the quality controls in
place for each business.  That evidence, he said, was not uniform
and had to be examined on an individual basis, making a class
unnecessary.

Expressing concern about the widespread implications of Mr. Van
Oort's argument, Judge Fisher asked, "Doesn't that say that
franchisors are exempt from collective actions?"

Mr. Van Oort said they wouldn't be if there was common evidence of
control, but more importantly, it was the type of control that
mattered.

KNIGHT TRANSPORTATION: Awaits Final Judgment in Oregon Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------
Knight Transportation, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2015, that a final
judgment has not yet been entered in an Oregon class action
lawsuit.

"We are a defendant in a class action lawsuit which was filed on
May 8, 2008, in the California Superior Court for Tulare County,"
the Company said. "The plaintiffs, who are current and former
drivers and who worked for us during the period of May 8, 2004
through August 6, 2015, allege claims for failure to provide meal
periods, inaccurate itemized pay statements and other items under
the California Labor Code."

"During the second quarter of 2015, we reached a preliminary
settlement with the plaintiffs. Should the settlement not be
approved by the court, further negotiations may take place that
could result in a different settlement, or the case may continue
on to trial, which could result in a judgment for a different
amount.

"We are also a defendant in a class action lawsuit which was filed
on June 10, 2010, in the Oregon Circuit Court for Multnomah
County. The plaintiffs, who are current and former drivers who
worked for us during the period of June 10, 2004 through June 10,
2010, allege the Company failed to pay minimum wage for attending
pre-employment orientation and failed to pay minimum wage for work
performed during certain pay periods after the start of
employment.

"On July 2, 2015, the court, following a bench trial, issued a
decision finding that we failed to pay minimum wage to some class
members for work performed during certain pay periods and assessed
statutory penalties and prejudgment interest related to our
failure to comply with minimum wage obligations. A final judgment
has not yet been entered.

"Shortly after the end of the third quarter of 2015, we reached a
preliminary settlement with the plaintiffs and the current and
former drivers who worked for us during the period June 11, 2010
through September 30, 2015. Should the settlement not be approved
by the court, further negotiations may take place that could
result in a different settlement, or a final judgment may be
entered, which could result in a judgment for a different amount.

"As a result of the California settlement and the Oregon decision,
during the second quarter of 2015, we accrued a total of $7.2
million, including the plaintiffs' estimated attorneys' fees and
related costs and excluding attorneys' fees and costs related to
our defense, in our condensed consolidated financial statements.
We had previously accrued $0.2 million as of December 31, 2014
related to these cases."

LIGAND PHARMACEUTICALS: Oral Arguments Heard in Securities Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
A Pennsylvania court has heard oral arguments in a securities
litigation involving Ligand Pharmaceuticals Incorporated, the
Company said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015, for the quarterly period
ended September 30, 2015.

On June 8, 2012, a federal securities class action and shareholder
derivative lawsuit was filed in the Eastern District of
Pennsylvania alleging that the Company and its CEO assisted
various breaches of fiduciary duties based on the Company's
purchase of a licensing interest in a development-stage
pharmaceutical program from the Genaera Liquidating Trust in May
2010 and the Company's subsequent sale of half of its interest in
the transaction to Biotechnology Value Fund, Inc.

Plaintiff filed a second amended complaint in February 2015, which
the Company moved to dismiss on March 20, 2015. The court heard
oral arguments on September 30, 2015.

The Company intends to continue to vigorously defend against the
claims against the Company and its CEO. Due to the complex nature
of the legal and factual issues involved, however, the outcome of
the matter is not presently determinable.

MDL 2196: Settlements of Direct & Indirect Purchaser Claims OK'd
----------------------------------------------------------------
Mohawk Industries, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015, for
the quarterly period ended October 3, 2015, that beginning in
August 2010, a series of civil lawsuits were initiated in several
U.S. federal courts alleging that certain manufacturers of
polyurethane foam products and competitors of the Company's carpet
underlay division had engaged in price fixing in violation of U.S.
antitrust laws. The Company has been named as a defendant in a
number of individual cases (the first filed on August 26, 2010),
as well as in two consolidated amended class action complaints
(the first filed on February 28, 2011, on behalf of a class of all
direct purchasers of polyurethane foam products, and the second
filed on March 21, 2011, on behalf of a class of indirect
purchasers). All pending cases in which the Company has been named
as a defendant were filed in or transferred to the U.S. District
Court for the Northern District of Ohio for consolidated pre-trial
proceedings under the name In re: Polyurethane Foam Antitrust
Litigation, Case No. 1:10-MDL-02196.

In these actions, the plaintiffs, on behalf of themselves and/or a
class of purchasers, seek damages allegedly suffered as a result
of alleged overcharges in the price of polyurethane foam products
from at least 1999 to the present. Any damages actually awarded at
trial are subject to being tripled under U.S. antitrust laws.

On March 23, 2015, the Company entered into an agreement to settle
all claims brought by the class of direct purchasers, and on April
30, 2015, the Company entered into an agreement to settle all
claims brought by the class of indirect purchasers. Both
settlement agreements are subject to court approval, which the
Company expects to receive. The Company denies all allegations of
wrongdoing but settled the class actions to avoid the uncertainty,
risk, expense and distraction of protracted litigation.

          Approval of Direct Purchaser Class Settlements

District Judge Jack Zouhary on Nov. 19, 2015, granted final
approval of six class settlements, entered into by the Direct
Purchaser Class with Defendants FFP Holdings, LLC, Foamex
Innovations, Inc., Future Foam, Inc., Hickory Springs
Manufacturing Co., Mohawk Industries Inc., and the Woodbridge
Defendants.  In the same order, the Court granted, in part, the
Direct Purchaser Class Counsel's request for an award of attorney
fees, reimbursement of expenses, and incentive awards for
representative Plaintiffs; and denied Direct Action Plaintiff
Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc.'s request to withdraw its
exclusion from the Direct Purchaser Class, so that it may
participate in four of the six settlements.

The settlements provided for substantial payments:

     * FFP: single lump-sum payment of $16 million;
     * FXI: single lump-sum payment of $60 million;
     * Future Foam: $32 million, using a payment schedule ending
       in March 2016;

derivative financial products, such as Treasury futures and
options, that are based on or otherwise tied to the price of

Mohawk Industries, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015, for
the quarterly period ended October 3, 2015, that the Company

which were brought by purchasers of polyurethane foam products not

cases varies or has not yet been specified by the plaintiffs. Each
plaintiff also seeks attorney fees, pre-judgment and post-judgment

NEWS CORP: Loses Bid to Derail Online-Store Promotions Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------
Mark Hamblett, writing for New York Law Journal, reports that News
Corporation's attempt to derail a class action alleging an illegal
monopoly over in-store consumer goods promotions has been denied
by a federal judge.

Paving the way for a trial or settlement, Southern District Judge
William Pauley rejected the company's motions for summary judgment
in a suit filed by H.J. Heinz Co., Smithfield Foods, and other
non-retailer consumer packaged goods firms.

The firms sued in 2013, charging that News Corp., News America
Marketing In-Store Services and other subsidiaries maintain a
stranglehold on in-store promotions such as shelf signage, coupon
distribution, end-of-aisle advertising and sampling products at
some 52,000 retail stores across America.

Pauley certified the class action of Dial Corporation v. News
Corp., 13-cv-6802, in June 2015, finding issue of common proof
prevailed among retailers which purchased in-store promotions
known as ISPs directly from News Corp. starting April 8, 2008
(NYLJ, June 22, 2015).

The plaintiff consumer packaged goods firms (CPGs) alleged
violations of sections one and two of the Sherman Act, section
three of the Clayton Act, New York's Donnelly Act and Michigan's
Antitrust Reform Act.  They charged that the anticompetitive
conduct included exclusive agreements maintained for in-store
promotions, the "staggered" expiration date of those agreements
and the guarantees that News Corp. pays for access to retail
stores.

During the damages period recognized by Pauley, News Corp. locked
up exclusive deals with 73 percent of participating retail stores
and more than 80 percent of retail grocer volume under exclusive
contract.

In News Corp.'s summary judgment motion, and in the plaintiffs'
response, the two sides differed over how long the exclusive
contracts were in place and at what pace the contracts expired.
The judge noted that by 2014, "News Corp.'s only remaining
competitor, Valassis, lost its key contracts and exited the third-
party ISP business."

On the "staggering" of contract expiration, the plaintiffs quoted
former News America Marketing CEO Martin Garofalo, who said, "News
America intentionally staggers the time of major retail deals to
minimize the risk of losing a major number of stores in any short
time period. . . .[T]his strategy serves as a deterrent to other
major companies from joining the in-store fray."

Reviewing the guarantees to retailers, the judge noted plaintiffs'
evidence that "News Corp. pays retailers fixed commissions that
'guarantee revenue even if the activity does not support it'," and
"those commissions increased dramatically when Valassis entered
the third-party ISP market."

In fact, he noted, after Valassis gave up and left the market,
"Within months, News Corp. was able to re-sign the retailers it
lost to Valassis."

The judge rejected the main argument made by News Corp. and denied
summary judgment under section one of the Sherman Act.
"News Corp. contends that its exclusive contracts are pro-
competitive because CPGs benefit from retail exclusivity," Pauley
said.  "However, on the current record, this court cannot conclude
as a matter of law that the pro-competitive benefits of the
exclusive contracts are outweighed by the harm to competition."

The judge went on analyze the allegations of monopolization under
section two of the Sherman Act, agreeing on the plaintiffs'
contention that the third-party ISP market is distinct one, and
that News Corp. had a 90.5 percent of that market by 2009.

RENTECH INC: Defending Against Mustard & Sloan Suits
----------------------------------------------------
Rentech, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2015, that the Company is
defending class action lawsuits related to a merger transaction
with CVR Partners, LP:

     -- On August 29, 2015, Mike Mustard, a purported unitholder
of RNP, filed a class action complaint on behalf of the public
unitholders of RNP against RNP, Rentech Nitrogen GP, LLC (the
"General Partner"), RNHI, Rentech, CVR Partners, DSHC, LLC,  Lux
Merger Sub 1 LLC ("Merger Sub 1") and Lux Merger Sub 2 LLC
("Merger Sub 2"), and the members of the General Partner's Board,
in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (the "Mustard
Lawsuit").

     -- On October 6, 2015, Jesse Sloan, a purported unitholder of
RNP, filed a class action complaint on behalf of the public
unitholders of RNP against RNP, the General Partner, CVR Partners,
Merger Sub 1, Merger Sub 2 and members of the General Partner's
Board in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of
California (the "Sloan Lawsuit" and together with the Mustard
Lawsuit, the "Lawsuits").

The Lawsuits allege, among other things, that the consideration
offered by CVR Partners is unfair and inadequate and that, by
pursuing the proposed transaction with CVR Partners, RNP's
directors have breached their contractual and fiduciary duties to
RNP's unitholders.  The Lawsuits also allege that the non-director
defendants aided and abetted the director defendants in their
purported breach of contractual and fiduciary duties. Furthermore,
the Sloan Lawsuit alleges that the registration statement filed
with the SEC with respect to the transaction fails to disclose
material information leading up to the Merger, fails to disclose
or contains misleading disclosures concerning Morgan Stanley & Co.
LLC's financial analyses and fails to disclose or contains
misleading disclosure concerning financial projections. The
Lawsuits seek to enjoin the Merger.

The Lawsuits are at a preliminary stage. RNP cannot predict the
outcome of the Lawsuits or any other lawsuit that might be filed
with respect to the Merger, nor can it predict the amount of time
and expense that will be required to resolve these or other
lawsuits. RNP believes the Lawsuits are without merit and intend
to defend against them vigorously.

SOTHEBY'S: Supreme Court Won't Review Ruling in Royalties Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Supreme Court on Jan. 11, 2016, denied a petition for
writ of certiorari, declining to review last year's ruling by the
U.S. Appeals Court for the Ninth Circuit in the case, Sam Francis
Foundation, et al., Petitioners v. Christies, Inc., et al., No.
15-280 (U.S.).

The lawsuit was brought by artists against auction houses over
resale royalties.

Brian Boucher, writing for Artnet News, noted that the California
Resale Royalties Act of 1976 requires auction houses to pay a 5%
royalty to artists when their works sell at auction for more than
$1,000, including to parties outside California.  A California
appellate court ruled in May 2015 that the part of the law
applying to interstate commerce was unconstitutional, saying that
it violated the Commerce Clause.  The artists sued Christie's,
Sotheby's, and eBay for failing to pay royalties for some sales
that were conducted in California.

Sotheby's said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015, for the quarterly
period ended September 30, 2015, that the Estate of Robert Graham,
et al. v. Sotheby's, Inc. is a purported class action commenced in
the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California in
October 2011 on behalf of U.S. artists (and their estates) whose
artworks were sold by Sotheby's in the State of California or at
auction by California sellers and for which a royalty was
allegedly due under the California Resale Royalties Act (the
"Resale Royalties Act"). Plaintiffs seek unspecified damages,
punitive damages and injunctive relief for alleged violations of
the Resale Royalties Act and the California Unfair Competition
Law.

In January 2012, Sotheby's filed a motion to dismiss the action on
the grounds, among others, that the Resale Royalties Act violates
the U.S. Constitution and is preempted by the U.S. Copyright Act
of 1976. In February 2012, the plaintiffs filed their response to
Sotheby's motion to dismiss. The court heard oral arguments on the
motion to dismiss on March 12, 2012.

On May 17, 2012, the court issued an order dismissing the action
on the ground that the Resale Royalties Act violated the Commerce
Clause of the U.S. Constitution. The plaintiffs appealed this
ruling.

On May 5, 2015, an en banc panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for
the Ninth Circuit issued a decision affirming the lower court
decision that the Resale Royalties Act was unconstitutional
insofar as it sought to apply to sales outside of the state of
California. The plaintiffs filed a motion for certiorari to the
U.S. Supreme Court in September 2015.

SOUTHWEST ROYALTIES: Suit by Opt-Out Plaintiff Pending
------------------------------------------------------
Clayton Williams Energy, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2015, that the
lawsuit by a plaintiff who opted out of a class action settlement
remains pending.

Southwest Royalties, Inc. ("SWR"), a wholly owned subsidiary of
CWEI, is a defendant in a suit filed in April 2011 in the Circuit
Court of Union County, Arkansas where the plaintiffs initially
sought in excess of $8 million for the costs of environmental
remediation to a lease on which operations were commenced in the
1930s. In June 2013, the plaintiffs, SWR and the remaining
defendants agreed to a settlement of $0.8 million, of which SWR
would pay $0.7 million. To accomplish the settlement, the case was
converted to a class action, and each member of the class was
offered the right to either participate or opt out of the class
and continue a separate action for damages.

One plaintiff opted out and will be subject to all previous
rulings of the court, including an order dismissing certain claims
on the basis that such claims were time barred. A loss on
settlement of $0.7 million was recorded for the year ended
December 31, 2013 in connection with this proposed settlement. The
settlement was entered by the Court on December 19, 2014, and all
settlement funds were paid to plaintiffs' counsel in January 2015.
The case by the single remaining plaintiff continues.


SPS TECHNOLOGIES: "Jackson" Labor Suit Goes to C.D. California

STERICYCLE INC: Illinois MDL in Discovery Stage
-----------------------------------------------
Stericycle, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2015, that a Multidistrict
litigation involving the Company is in the discovery stage.

"We were served on March 12, 2013 with a class action complaint
filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of
Pennsylvania by an individual plaintiff for itself and on behalf
of all other "similarly situated" customers of ours," the Company
said.  "The complaint alleges, among other things, that we imposed
unauthorized or excessive price increases and other charges on our
customers in breach of our contracts and in violation of the
Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act. The
complaint sought certification of the lawsuit as a class action
and the award to class members of appropriate damages and
injunctive relief."

"The Pennsylvania class action complaint was filed in the wake of
a settlement with the State of New York of an investigation under
the New York False Claims Act which arose out of the Qui Tam
Action.

"Following the filing of the Pennsylvania class action complaint,
we were served with class action complaints filed in federal court
in California, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi and Utah and in
state court in California. These complaints asserted claims and
allegations substantially similar to those made in the
Pennsylvania class action complaint. All of these cases appear to
be follow-on litigation to our settlement with the State of New
York.

"On August 9, 2013, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation
(MDL) granted our Motion to Transfer these related actions to the
Northern District of Illinois for centralized pretrial
proceedings. On December 10, 2013, we filed our answer to the
Amended Consolidated Class Action Complaint in the MDL action,
generally denying the allegations therein. The MDL action is in
the discovery stage.

"We believe that we have operated in accordance with the terms of
our customer contracts and that these complaints are without
merit. We intend to vigorously defend ourselves against each of
these lawsuits."


STERICYCLE INC: To Pay $13 Million on Valid TCPA Claims
-------------------------------------------------------
Stericycle, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2015, that the Company was
expected to pay a total of approximately $13.0 million in respect
of valid claims submitted by members of a class action lawsuit
within the claims period sometime during the fourth quarter of
2015.

"On May 20, 2015, we entered into a settlement agreement to
resolve all claims made against us and certain of our subsidiaries
in Sawyer v. Stericycle, et al., Case No. 2015 CH 07190 (the "TCPA
Action"), a class action complaint pending in the Circuit Court of
Cook County, Illinois (the "Court")," the Company said.  "The TCPA
Action is the successor lawsuit to the class action complaint
filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of
Illinois (Case 1:14-cv-02070) that we have previously disclosed
and that was dismissed pursuant to the parties' joint stipulation
of dismissal. The TCPA Action alleges that from 2010 to 2014 we
violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991, as amended
by the Junk Fax Prevention Act of 2005, by sending facsimile
advertisements to plaintiffs or putative class members that either
were unsolicited and/or did not contain a valid opt-out notice. We
have denied all liability for the claims made in the TCPA Action
but have agreed to settle to avoid the expense, burden and
inherent risk and uncertainty of litigation."

"Under the terms of the settlement agreement entered into with the
two class representatives, we agreed to make available a fund of
$45.0 million (the "Settlement Fund") to pay class members who
submit a valid claim form within a 90-day period, to pay an
incentive award to each of the class representatives, to pay
attorneys' fees and expenses to plaintiffs' attorneys, and to pay
fees and costs of a third-party settlement administrator (the
"TCPA Settlement"). The plaintiffs' attorneys sought attorneys'
fees of one-third of the Settlement Fund, plus out-of-pocket
expenses, to be paid from the Settlement Fund.

"As part of the TCPA Settlement, we do not admit to any of the
allegations in the TCPA Action and will be completely released
from any claims related to faxes sent by us or on our behalf from
March 25, 2010 through April 30, 2015.

"In view of the TCPA Settlement, we recorded a pre-tax accrual of
$45.0 million in accrued liabilities on our consolidated balance
sheet and a pre-tax charge of $45.0 million in selling, general
and administrative expenses on our consolidated statement of
income during the second quarter of 2015. We made payments
totaling approximately $15.2 million in respect of the incentive
awards to each of the class representatives and the attorneys'
fees and expenses of plaintiffs' attorneys during August 2015.

"Based on information provided by the third-party settlement
administrator, we will pay a total of approximately $13.0 million
in respect of valid claims submitted by class members within the
claims period sometime during the fourth quarter of 2015. As a
result, we will retain the balance of the Settlement Fund, or
approximately $16.8 million, with no further obligation to make
payments in respect of the TCPA Settlement. We have adjusted the
accrual on our consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2015
and the charge on our consolidated statement of income for the
three months ended September 30, 2015 accordingly."

Issue: Product Safety
Audience: General Public
Identification number: RA-56034

Sure Signal Products heat-activated fire alarms sold under the
following brand names and models: MasterGuard QR50, Thermalink
QR50, and DeTech FST2004H.

Product description

The recall involves Sure Signal Products heat activated fire
alarms. These alarms are white, round and measure about 18 cm (7
inches) in diameter. The alarms have a round fuse at the center.
The fuse is white or chrome and about 4 cm (1.5 inches) in
diameter.

The fuses are marked 117 degrees F or 136 degrees F on the label
on the back of the fuse, with a date code range from 04001 -
15182.  Date codes are listed in "YYDDD" format.

The alarms were manufactured from January 1, 2004 through July 1,
2015. The alarm's model is printed on a label on the back of the
alarm. "SSP", the temperature rating and the date code can be
found on the label on the back of the fuse.

The functionality of the replaceable fusible link sensor (also
referred to as the fuse) on the fire alarm can degrade with time,
which can cause the alarm to fail to alert a consumer to a fire.

Neither Sure Signals Products nor Health Canada has received any
reports of injuries or consumer incidents related to the use of
these alarms.

Approximately 4,500 units of the fire alarms were sold in Canada,
and approximately 375,000 were sold in the United States.

The fire alarms were sold from January 2004 to June 2015.

Manufactured in the United States of America.

TC HEARTLAND: Appeals Court Agrees to Hear Oral Arguments
---------------------------------------------------------
Lisa Shuchman, writing for Corporate Counsel, reports that the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has agreed to hear
oral arguments in a case that could result in a major shift in the
geographic distribution of patent cases and make it more difficult
to sue for infringement in the plaintiff-friendly Eastern District
of Texas.

For years, lawyers have complained that the court's interpretation
of the patent statute has made it easy for patent holders to sue
in any district court, even if the parties have no connection to
the jurisdiction.  That interpretation has had the unforeseen
consequence of allowing plaintiffs to flock to the Eastern
District of Texas, which is considered the most plaintiff and
patent friendly of all jurisdictions.  As a result, almost half of
all patent cases filed last year landed there.  In fact,
plaintiffs filed 2,540 patent cases in the Eastern District in
2015, or 43.6 percent of all patent cases filed last year.  Nearly
a third of all patent cases filed in 2015 ended up before U.S.
District Judge Rodney Gilstrap.  This was more cases than were
filed in the next 17 districts combined.

But on Jan. 15, the Federal Circuit agreed to hear arguments in a
case that could change all that.  The case, In Re: TC Heartland,
stems from a patent infringement suit filed by Kraft Foods in the
District of Delaware against TC Heartland, an Indiana-based
company.  TC Heartland tried to get the case transferred from
Delaware to Indiana, but its request was denied. The company then
filed a mandamus petition with the Federal Circuit, asking it to
direct the lower court to transfer the case, and also to
reconsider its previous interpretation of the patent venue
statute.

The ruling said a panel of judges would hear oral arguments in the
case on March 11.  The court has discretion to hear mandamus
petitions.  Historically, most such petitions are denied.  So the
order is an incremental victory for companies that have filed
amicus briefs supporting TC Heartland's arguments.

The per curiam decision means the Federal Circuit will reconsider
its 1990 ruling in VE Holding v. Johnson Gas Appliance, which held
that amendments to the general venue statute passed by Congress in
1988 meant the restrictive venue for patent cases, which had
limited venue in patent cases to where a company is incorporated
or has a regular place of business, no longer applied.  That
decision opened the floodgates for patent plaintiffs to engage in
forum shopping to a degree rarely seen.

Congress again changed the general venue statute in 2011, adding
that the more permissive definition applies in all civil cases
"except as otherwise provided by law."  TC Heartland is arguing
that this amendment made clear the patent statute should be viewed
as separate from the general venue statute.  By agreeing to have a
panel hear arguments, as opposed to having the case argued en
banc, it appears the court is accepting the view that the
intervening legislation passed in 2011 means it is not bound by
the court's earlier 1990 decision.

If the court accepts the petitioner's arguments, it would have
huge implications for the Eastern District of Texas, a venue
popular among non-practicing entities who sue with the aim of
extorting settlements, a group often referred to as patent trolls.
Two dozen companies that have frequently been sued for
infringement in the Eastern District of Texas, including eBay Inc.
and Google Inc., filed an amicus brief in support of the
petitioner, as did the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

James Dabney, John Fitzgerald Duffy, Richard Koehl, Wanda French-
Brown and David Lansky of Hughes Hubbard & Reed represent TC
Heartland.  John Luken, Joshua Lorentz, Eric Combs and Robert
Zimmerman of Dinsmore & Shohl are counsel for Kraft Foods.

On certain vehicles built on a Powerglide chassis, insufficient
clearance exists between the exhaust pipe and the floor. This
could cause the floor insulation to melt and make the floor area
above the engine extremely hot, increasing the risk of personal
injury or possibly resulting in a fire. Correction: Dealers will
install a revised exhaust configuration to increase clearance.

Subcategory: Light Trailer
Notification type: Safety Mfr
System: Suspension
Units affected: 58
Source of recall: Transport Canada
Identification number: 2015576TC
ID number: 2015576

On certain trailers equipped with 3500 lbs torsion axles, the
torsion arm attachment bar may have been made too small, or the
hole in which it is inserted into is too large. This could result
in the torsion arm, spindle, tire and wheel assembly separating
from the trailer. This could pose a risk to other road users
and/or result in a loss of vehicle stability and control,
increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to
property. Correction: Owners are advised to look for the letters
"SMG" that are cast into the center section (on one side) of the
torsion arm. If the letters "SMG" are found, dealers will replace
the torsion axle. If owners are not comfortable inspecting their
trailer, dealers will perform the inspection.

VERTEX REFINING: Defending Class Suit over Louisiana Refinery
-------------------------------------------------------------
Vertex Energy, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2015, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2015, that Vertex Refining
LA, LLC, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Vertex Operating, the
Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, was named as a defendant in a
lawsuit filed in the Twenty-Fourth Judicial District For the
Parish of Jefferson, Louisiana on January 6, 2015. Pursuant to the
lawsuit, Stacy Davis, Becky Vallee and James A. Block (the
"Plaintiffs") made certain allegations against Vertex Refining LA,
LLC, Omega Refining and the manager of the Marrero, Louisiana
facility (the "Defendants").

"The claims are structured as class actions relating to certain
operations performed at our newly acquired re-refinery located in
Marrero, Louisiana, including the alleged emission of noxious and
harmful substances," the Company said.

The Plaintiffs allege they are part of a valid class due to the
fact that they live and work near the facility. The lawsuit
relates to alleged actions and inactions related to the facility
between 2012 to present and includes allegations relating to
violations of various Louisiana statutes, allegations relating to
the misrepresentation of information to the Louisiana Department
of Environmental Quality, allegations relating to violations of
hourly permitted emission limits, and alleged failure to report an
un-permitted point-source.

The suit seeks damages for physical and emotional injuries, pain
and suffering, medical expenses and deprivation of the use and
enjoyment of Plaintiffs' homes. The Plaintiffs further allege that
there are estimated to be over 1,000 class members to the suit,
provided that the proposed class is yet to be certified.

"We intend to vigorously defend ourselves against the allegations
made in the complaint, provided that at this stage of the
litigation, the Company has no basis of determining whether there
is any likelihood of material loss associated with the claims
and/or the potential outcome of the litigation," the Company said.

VOLKSWAGEN GROUP: Did Not Lie to U.S. Regulators, New CEO Says
--------------------------------------------------------------
Ryan McConnell and Meagan Baker, writing for Corporate Counsel,
report that at the Detroit auto show, VW focused on electric
technology -- introducing the BUDD-e Concept, a long-range
electric van.  VW's new CEO, Matthias Mueller, was at the show.

During an interview with National Public Radio, Mueller noted the
company was "truly sorry" for the emissions scandal.  But he took
issue with the characterization that VW lied to U.S. regulators.
Instead he said, "Frankly spoken, it was a technical problem.  We
made a default, we had . . . not the right interpretation of the
American law.  And we had some targets for our technical
engineers, and they solved this problem and reached targets with
some software solutions which haven't been compatible to American
law.  That is the thing.  And the other question you mentioned --
it was an ethical problem? I cannot understand why you say that .
. . We didn't lie.  We didn't understand the question first.  And
then we worked since 2014 to solve the problem."

On Jan. 8, The New York Times reported that the company had
invoked European Union privacy laws in refusing to turn over
documents to U.S. regulators.  Despite Mr. Mueller's promise for
"maximum transparency," shortly after his appointment as CEO, VW
cited Germany's strict privacy laws that limit access to data
outside the EU, in this case hampering U.S. investigators' ability
to identify employees who may have known or were responsible for
the misconduct.

It didn't start out this way.  VW was initially cooperating with
U.S. regulators in efforts to alleviate backlash from the scandal.
Soon after news of the scandal broke and Mueller took over as CEO,
Mueller had a much more conciliatory tone, promising to "implement
the most stringent compliance and governance standards in our
industry."

This column suggested back in September that VW needed to regain
trust with consumers.  The company understands the "what" but
seems lost on the "how."  In fact, VW's response to crisis stands
in stark contrast to other global companies that have weathered
significant storms.

In October 2015, BP reached a settlement with the U.S. and five
Gulf Coast states worth $20.8 billion.  At the time the settlement
was announced, Carl-Henric Svanberg, BP's chairman, reinforced the
company's commitment to restore the Gulf economy and environment.
Other BP executives made statements describing the oil spill as
"tragic" and describing the company's eagerness to reach a
collective solution.  Just months after the April 2010 explosion
on the Deepwater Horizon rig, BP and the U.S. government agreed
that BP would create the Deepwater Horizon Trust Fund to
compensate victims.  As a result of the fund's creation, BP did
not pay shareholder dividends for the rest of the year.  BP also
tripled its advertising budget following the oil spill, spending
more than $93 million on newspaper and TV advertisements.
According to BP, "its primary goal was to inform the public about
clean-up efforts and, more importantly, the claims process that
allows oil-spill victims to receive compensation for lost wages or
property damage."

General Motors Co. also faced huge fines following its faulty
ignition switch scandal, which resulted in over 100 deaths.
Following the scandal, Mary Barra, the GM CEO, stressed the need
to show how the company's culture had changed as a result of the
problem.  GM agreed to pay $900 million to end the criminal
inquiry into its failure to issue a timely recall of the vehicles.
According to the DOJ, since the investigation GM took, "exemplary
actions to demonstrate acceptance and acknowledgement for its
conduct."  These actions included conducting an internal
investigation, voluntarily providing documents to the government
in efforts to remain transparent, terminating wrongdoers, and
establishing a victim compensation program.

VW has done some things right.  Then-CEO, Martin Winterkorn,
resigned shortly after news of the scandal broke.  The company
also said it would seek prosecution of any VW employees involved
in the misconduct and would establish a special investigative
committee to discover what happened and who is responsible.
Gina McCarthy, the EPA administrator, even told the Wall Street
Journal that she was "pleased that Volkswagen is taking such an
aggressive stance on admitting the problem and attacking it."
Rebuilding trust with consumers, however, takes time.  VW's new
electric van is impressive.  And electronic technology seems to
represent the future of the automotive industry.  To be a leader,
the company will need consumers to follow.  That requires
rebuilding trust.  Whether the company can do that remains to be
seen.

VOLKSWAGEN GROUP: "Siegel" Suit Moved from N.D Ill. to MDL 2672
---------------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Siegel v. Volkswagen of America,
Inc. et al., Case No. 1:15-cv-09265, was transferred from
the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois
Northern, to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of
California (San Francisco). The Northern District Court Clerk
assigned Case No. to the 3:15-cv-05885-CRB proceeding.

Volkswagen Group of America designs, manufactures, and sells
automobiles in the United States and internationally. The company
operates as a subsidiary of Volkswagen AG, and is based in
Herndon, Virginia.

The Siegel case is being consolidated with MDL 2672 in re:
Volkswagen Clean Diesel Marketing, Sales Practices, and Products
Liability Litigation. The MDL was created by order of the United
States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation On December 8,
2015. These cases primarily concern certain 2.0 and 2 3.0 Liter
diesel engines sold By Defendants Volkswagen Group Of America,
Volkswagen AG And affiliated companies, which allegedly contain
software that enables the vehicles to evade emissions requirements
by engaging full emissions controls only when Official Emissions
Testing Occurs. In its December 8, 2015 order, the MDL panel found
that the actions in this litigation involve common questions of
fact, and that centralization in the northern District of
California will serve the convenience of the parties and witnesses
and promote the just and efficient conduct of the litigation.
Presiding Judge in the MDL is Hon. Charles R. Breyer, United

VOLVO TRUCKS: Recalls Multiple Vehicle Models Due to Injury Risk
----------------------------------------------------------------
Starting date: November 24, 2015
Type of communication: Recall
Subcategory: Truck - Med. & H.D.
Notification type: Safety Mfr
System: Steering
Units affected: 2001
Source of recall: Transport Canada
Identification number: 2015561TC
ID number: 2015561
Manufacturer recall number: RVXX1512

On certain vehicles manufactured with a 2-piece steering shaft,
the bolt torque on the joint that couples the upper and lower
steering shaft could be lower than specification. This could cause
the bolt to loosen, which may result in separation of the two
shafts. Separation of the two shafts would result in complete loss
of steering, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or
damage to property. Correction: Instructions will be sent to
owners advising them to tighten the bolt as an interim measure.
Dealers will inspect the steering shaft, and affect repairs as
necessary.

On certain motorcycles, the second gear wheel and the pinion gears
in the transmission may be of inadequate strength. In high stress
cases, this could cause internal components in the transmission to
deform or break. If gears were to fail, the transmission could
lock up, which would also cause the rear wheel to lock up. This
could result in loss of control and/or a crash, increasing the
risk of injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will
replace the transmission assembly with one that includes gears of
a different design.

* FDA Seeks Public Input on "Natural Food" Labeling Use
-------------------------------------------------------
Amy P. Lally, Livia M. Kiser and Rachel Goldberg, writing for
Corporate Counsel, report that for years, many have asked the Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) to define the term "natural" for use
in food labeling.  Private citizens asked.  Corporations asked.
Even federal courts asked.  But until recently, aside from an
attempt at rulemaking in the early 1990s (an attempt that the FDA
formally abandoned in 1993), the FDA had taken no steps to
formally define the term. Rather, the FDA relied upon its policy
regarding the use of "natural" as meaning that nothing artificial
or synthetic (including all color additives, regardless of source)
has been included in, or has been added to, a food.
Finally, however, the FDA has taken some long-awaited action; it
opened a docket on November 12, 2015 to get input from the public,
asking:

   -- Is it appropriate for the FDA to define the term "natural"?
   -- If so, how should the agency define "natural"?
   -- How should the agency make this determination?

Docket submissions can be made electronically or by mail and will
be accepted until May 10, 2016.

Even prior to the close of the FDA's docket, the FDA's actions
could have a substantial impact on food and supplement label
litigation challenging the use of the word.  This litigation is
pending in courts all over the country.  In light of the FDA's
request for input, counsel representing parties involved in actual
(or even threatened) litigation should consider raising (or re-
raising) arguments based on the primary jurisdiction doctrine and
preemption principles.

Background

The word "natural" on food and supplement products has been
challenged in false and misleading advertising litigation for a
variety of reasons.  These include allegations that one or more of
the ingredients was claimed to have been: (i) processed (Pelayo v.
Nestle USA Inc. [C.D. Cal. Oct. 25, 2013]); (ii) genetically
modified (Barnes v. Campbell Soup Co., [N.D. Cal. Jan. 24, 2014]);
(iii) contaminated with pesticide residue from crop treatment (In
re Hain Celestial Seasonings Prods.  Consumer Litig. [C.D. Cal.
Nov. 6, 2013]); (iv) synthetic (Thurston v. Bear Naked, Inc. [S.D.
Cal. July 30, 2013]); and (v) not organic (In re Hain Celestial
Seasonings Prods. Consumer Litig. [C.D. Cal. Nov. 6, 2013]).
Before the FDA made its most recent request for comment,
defendants in food labeling litigation across the country moved to
stay or dismiss suits based on the primary jurisdiction doctrine
and/or preemption principles.  Courts rulings on these motions
were not uniform.  Some rejected such claims.  Other courts
thought defendants raised legitimate concerns.

The uncertainty was deemed significant enough that three federal
judges (two in the northern district of California and one in the
district of New Jersey) wrote a letter to the FDA asking for
guidance on the proper definition of "natural" in labeling.
Specifically, these three judges wanted to know if bioengineered
and/or genetically modified food could properly be labeled
"natural."

In response, on January 7, 2014 the FDA declined to make a
determination or provide guidance on the issue.  Consequently,
many assumed that the FDA's letter meant that the FDA never
intended to rule on the use of "natural" in food labels.  The
three judges who requested guidance, for example, lifted their
stays.  The parties in these cases settled soon after.

But the assumption about the FDA's intentions has been called into
question by the recent notice. While the FDA has not formally
begun the rulemaking process, it has taken action in a meaningful
way that may be a precursor to future rulemaking. (The FDA's
rulemaking on Gluten-Free labels, for example, also started with a
request for input).  Thus, the FDA's request for input can and
should affect ongoing litigation, and the primary jurisdiction and
preemption arguments that defendants were raising a few years ago
now should be back on the table.

Primary Jurisdiction Doctrine

The FDA's newest action revitalizes arguments based on the primary
jurisdiction doctrine because the reasons that courts previously
denied such arguments in the past no longer apply.  For instance,
a district court in one case found that the primary jurisdiction
doctrine was inapplicable in part because there was no "risk of
undercutting the FDA's judgment and authority" given that the FDA
had affirmatively indicated it did not plan to exercise its power
to regulate the use of "natural" on food labels.  But that
assumption is no longer true now that the FDA has asked for public
input on an issue.  Thus, prudent counsel defending against such
litigation will consider raising (or
re-raising) this doctrine.

The specter of favorable rulings on primary jurisdiction staying
or dismissing "natural" food label litigation may well impact the
filing of this type of litigation, as knowledgeable counsel may be
able to persuade plaintiffs' counsel that the potential for such a
ruling augers in favor of informal, early resolution.

Preemption Principles

If, as a result of its initial action, FDA promulgates a formal
rulemaking, defense lawyers should be prepared to assert -- or re-
assert -- arguments based on preemption principles.  The outcome
of these "natural" label suits may well be dependent on the
outcome of any promulgated rulemaking.  Plaintiffs may argue that
there are many steps (and much time) before the FDA could make any
preemptive decisions.  Nevertheless, preemption is an argument
defendants should make.  Prior to the November, 2015 call for
comments (but after its letter denying guidance to the district
judges), the assertion that preemption was imminent, i.e. that the
FDA would make making rules regulating the use of "natural" in
labeling, thus preempting conflicting state law, was weak at best.
But now, even if there are many steps the FDA must go through to
preempt the states' laws in this area, arguments on dismissal
based on preemption principles should not be given short shrift.
