ABBVIE: Judge Tosses Bulk of Insurer's RICO Class Action
--------------------------------------------------------
Jonathan Bilyk, writing for Cook County Record, reports that a
federal judge has tossed, with leave to amend, the bulk of a
federal racketeering and fraud class action brought by an Ohio-
based health insurer against Abbvie and other makers of
testosterone drugs, saying the insurer has not yet backed up with
enough particularity its allegations the drugmakers invented the
condition known as "low T," and, through false marketing to
doctors, patients and insurers alike, induced insurers and others
to pay far more for the drugs to treat the condition than they
otherwise should have.

On Feb. 4, U.S. District Judge Matthew F. Kennelly granted in
large part the motion by a group of defendant drugmakers,
including Abbvie, Solvay, Besins, Glaxosmithkline, Eli Lilly,
Actavis and others, to dismiss the putative class action brought
by Cleveland-based Medical Mutual of Ohio (MMO).

According to court documents, in the action filed in Chicago
federal court in November 2014, MMO alleged they and other third-
party payers fell prey to "fraudulent marketing schemes" from the
drugmakers to "boost (testosterone drug) sales by deceiving
patients, primary care physicians and third-party payers about the
drugs' safety and efficacy for treating certina conditions." The
alleged misrepresentations led the insurers to reimburse payments
for purportedly "medically inappropriate (testosterone drug)
prescriptions," court documents said.

MMO said the drugmakers marketed the drugs as "a safe and
effective treatment for various 'off label' conditions," court
documents said, leading the insurer to file its complaint alleging
violations of federal racketeering and mail and wire fraud laws
against a subgroup of defendants, including Abbvie, Auxilium,
Lilly, Actavis and Endo Pharmaceuticals, and common law fraud
counts against all the named defendant drugmakers.

While the testosterone drugs have been approved by the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration to treat just one condition, known as
"classical hypogonadism," in which the body does not produce
sufficient testosterone to engage in "normal functions."  MMO,
however, said the drug companies led patients and doctors to
believe the drugs were also "safe and effective" to treat other
symptoms and conditions, including erectile dysfunction, diabetes,
AIDS, cancer, depression and obesity, amid an "off-label marketing
scheme . . . that promoted the existence of a false disease,
called 'Andropause' or 'Low T,' which they had invented."

MMO said medical evidence doesn't back up the drugmakers'
assertions, but "does show that off-label (testosterone drug) use
is associated with increased incidence" of a range of potentially
deadly circulatory and cardiovascular conditions, including heart
attacks, strokes and blood clotting conditions.

The assertions of the drugs' benefits, however, led to a rash of
prescriptions for the drugs to treat a number of "off-label"
conditions, leading MMO to pay out large sums in reimbursement.
According to court documents, MMO said it paid more than $38.9
million in "unnecessary and unsafe" testosterone drug
reimbursements from Nov. 2001 to April 2015.

MMO's lawsuit comes against the backdrop of consolidated
nationwide multi-district litigation proceedings pending against
the drugmakers in Chicago federal court from hundreds of named
plaintiffs who claim the testosterone drugs harmed them.

In those cases, federal court documents indicate the court will
select certain "bellwether" cases to head to trial.  Those cases
will be selected later this year, and the trials are expected to
start in the spring of 2017.

In response to the MMO lawsuit, most of the drugmakers joined in a
motion to dismiss the insurers' action, saying MMO and its
putative fellow class members don't have standing to sue, they
didn't file their complaint in time and their allegations that the
drugmakers' marketing was the reason they paid what they did for
the testosterone drugs are not specific enough to allow the case
to move forward.

Drugmakers, for instance, argued MMO did not present a single,
specific instance of a doctor prescribing nor a patient demanding
reimbursement for the testosterone drugs based specifically on the
drugmakers' marketing.

And the drugmakers argued MMO and other insurers had placed the
drug on their "formularies," or lists of drugs approved for
reimbursement, and thus likely could not have turned down
reimbursement demands from patients even if the insurers had known
of the alleged fraudulent marketing.

The judge, however, said the insurer cleared all of those hurdles
at this stage in the proceedings, noting the drugmakers had
directed their allegedly misleading marketing to insurers, as well
as to patients, and the resulting decision by the insurers to
place the drugs on their formularies and reimburse the
prescription costs marked an economic injury for which the insurer
can sue.

"Plaintiff alleges that the . . . defendants created a false
disease and claimed that their drugs could treat it safely and
effectively; concealed evidence of the drugs' risks; distorted the
scholarly literature about their drugs and about their false
disease; and launched nationwide campaigns to make false
representations about their drugs to consumers, physicians, and
(third-party payers)," the judge wrote.  "Accepting these
allegations as true, as the Court must do at this stage, one can
reasonably infer that at least some of the $38,962.566.73
plaintiff paid (for testosterone) drugs was likely spent on drugs
for which it would never have paid absent defendants' alleged
schemes."

The judge also noted the insurer has procedures in place that
would allow it to restrict reimbursements for off-label use of the
testosterone drugs, if MMO had known of the allegedly fraudulent
claims.

The judge, though, said the defendant drugmakers were correct in
asserting MMO has not yet declared with enough specificity
precisely who made fraudulent misrepresentations, and to whom;
when they were made; and how.

"Plaintiff alleges generally that defendants made direct
misrepresentations or fraudulent omissions to it, whether in
person, in writing or by telephone," the judge said.  "One would
expect plaintiff to have information about the approximate dates
and locations (if done in person), as well as information about
the contents of the alleged misrepresentations or omissions.

"Under the circumstances, it is not unnecessarily burdensome to
require plaintiff to include such information in its complaint."

The lack of particularity, the judge said, meant MMO's complaint
fell short of satisfying the requirements of procedural rules
governing such federal racketeering lawsuits.

Judge Kennelly gave MMO until March 3 to amend its complaint to
cure the deficiencies.

MMO is represented in the action by the firm of Simmons Hanly
Conroy, of Alton; Kanner & Whiteley, of New Orleans; and Simmer
Law Group, of Washington, D.C.

The drugmakers are defended by attorneys with the firms of
Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler, of New York; Kaye Scholer LLP, of
New York; Reed Smith LLP, of Los Angeles; Foley & Lardner LLP, of
Boston; and Mayer Brown LLP, of Chicago.

AMERICAN GREETING: Settles Wage & Hour Class Action
---------------------------------------------------
Tawny L. Alvarez, Esq. -- talvarez@verrilldana.com -- of Verrill
Dana LLP, in an article for Lexology, wrote that American Greeting
Corporation settled a wage and hour class action under the FLSA
and California state wage and hour laws in Smith v. American
Greetings Corp., No. 3:14cv02577 (N.D. Cal. Jan. 29, 2016).
Additionally Plaintiffs brought claims under the California
Private Attorneys General Act which permits litigants to act as
representative plaintiffs without court ordered class
certification.  The action was brought on behalf of 3,743 field
sale operation employees in California.  The class action alleged
that employees were not fully reimbursed for mileage, meals and
mobile phone expenses that were associated with travel to work
sites.  The class members were responsible for maintaining and
assembling greeting card displays in well-known retail locations
including Target and Rite-Aid.  American Greeting Corporation
settled for $4 million which was approximately 20 percent of what
the workers would have been entitled to if every claim had been
successful at trial.


AMTRAK: Cost of Derailment Case May Reach $295 Million
------------------------------------------------------
Rick Ritter, writing for WJZ, reports that new details in the
deadly Amtrak derailment that killed eight people, including three
with Maryland ties.

Just days after federal investigators released more on the moments
that led up to the crash, a group of lawyers are going after tens
of millions of dollars from Amtrak.

It's been a busy week surrounding the crash.  Some victims have
already filed lawsuits, but one group of lawyers wants to lump
them all into one--a move they feel has the best interest of all
the victims.

On May 12, 2015, one of the nation's deadliest derailments unfolds
in Philadelphia, leaving several dead--three with Maryland ties--
and others traumatized for life.

"Everyone looked up to my son," said the mother of Justin Zemser,
a Naval midshipman who was killed.

Their lawyers have been seeking compensation, but in a new twist
on Feb. 3, one group followed through with a class action lawsuit,
filing a motion to make it a limited fund.

Attorney Read McCaffrey -- rmccaffrey@liddlerobinson.com -- Liddle
and Robinson, LLP, New York, is one person behind it.

"This is a case that needs a limited fund class action to
efficiently resolve the disputes. Nearly 250 people were either
injured or killed on May 12, 2015 as a result of the Amtrak
derailment.  This event is obviously the fault of Amtrak," said
Mr. McCaffrey.

WJZ obtained the documents--a move that could potentially lump all
plaintiffs into one suit.

It states Amtrak is liable for injuries, and damages and since it
is limited fund, it could potentially cost Amtrak $295 million--
but would be no more than that -- while putting $50 million to $70
million more in plaintiffs' pockets due to reduced legal fees.

"This is to avoid settlements that leave persons out, that have
not filed suit or unfair or unjustified amounts of money to
persons who simply win that race to a courthouse.  There has been
a scramble to the courthouse by a number of plaintiffs, which is
inevitable in a tragedy like this," said Mr. McCaffrey.

The move comes just days after the NTSB released its newest report
on the crash, featuring interviews with the train's engineer.
Many have criticized his inconsistency and the fact that
technology wasn't in place to prevent the crash.

"You have fault, all of which at the end of the day is
attributable to Amtrak," said Pennsylvania attorney Tom Kline, who
represents 27 victims in the derailment.

Technology called "positive train control," designed to slow
trains down, wasn't installed.

"We have an issue of human error and an issue of technology that
should have been in place and wasn't," said Daniel Miller, whose
firm, the Law Offices of Daniel J. Miller, has represented Amtrak
victims in the past.

A wreck that's left a devastating impact.

"A lot of people lost their lives and many more lost the right to
have the lives they were living," Mr. Kline said.

Class action suit still needs to be approved.

Mr. McCaffrey says he's unsure if Amtrak is on board with the
class action lawsuit and won't have an idea on a court date until
they get a response.

Mr. McCaffrey says he looks forward to working with at least three
or four other lawyers who already have clients involved in this
case.

There were 238 passengers on Amtrak 188 -- more than 200 were
injured.


ANZ BANK: Plaintiffs' Lawyers to Appeal Card Fee Suit Ruling
------------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Associated Press reports that lawyers hoping to
quash "absurd" excessive bank fees are continuing their fight in
the High Court.

Maurice Blackburn Lawyers are appealing a 2015 Federal Court loss
in their case against excessive charges, in particular ANZ's
charges of up to $35 for late credit card payments.

The firm argues the true cost of the fees ranged from a few
dollars to only 50 cents and customers should be refunded the
difference.

Lawyer Andrew Watson said banks shouldn't be allowed to charge a
$7000 late payment fee.

"We think that's just absurd and we hope the High Court agrees,"
he told ABC TV.

The decision will affect every banking customer who has ever paid
a late payment fee on a credit card in Australia, he said.

BANKIA SA: Faces Class Action Over 2011 Stock Listing
-----------------------------------------------------
Agence France-Press reports that a class action lawsuit against
Spain's Bankia opened on Feb. 4 with 660 small shareholders who
say they were misled during the financial giant's 2011 stock
listing asking to be reimbursed 6.3 million euros ($7 million).

Bankia, which was bailed out in 2012, is accused of
misrepresenting its accounts ahead of the flotation and hundreds
of customers who say they lost their money after converting their
savings to shares have brought separate lawsuits against the
group.

In January, Spain's Supreme Court said "serious inaccuracies" in
the information provided by Bankia for the listing led investors
into error -- opening the way for hundreds of millions of euros in
compensation.

The Supreme Court said that small shareholders had no source of
financial data on which to base their decision to buy shares
except what Bankia told them.

Jose Plaza, the lawyer for the 660 shareholders, asked a Madrid
court on Feb. 4 that they be reimbursed the 6.3 million euros they
invested in Bankia shares, plus interest.

The ruling has been postponed to a later date.

Former IMF head Rodrigo Rato, who was chairman of Bankia at the
time of the listing, is also being investigated, in separate
proceedings, along with other suspects.

Bankia and its parent company BFA said in December they had set
aside 1.8 billion euros in provisions for claims that by the end
of 2014 already stacked up to 819 million euros.

COIN: Faces Class Action Over Marketing Defective Product
---------------------------------------------------------
JD Alois, writing for Crowdfund Insider, reports that COIN, the
one card to rule them all, has been slapped with a class action
lawsuit filed by Kronenberger Rosenfeld, a San Francisco-based law
firm that specializes in internet, tech and media law.  The suit
was filed against COIN alleging they "knowingly marketed a
defective product".  According to information released by
Kronenberger, COIN "violated several unfair competition and false
advertising laws during a vastly successful crowdfunding
campaign".  The suit asserts that COIN received millions of
dollars from consumers through a crowdfunding campaign for a
product "the company knew could never work as advertised".  The
lawsuit seeks monetary damages against Coin for false advertising,
misrepresentation, and breach of contract.

"Our complaint alleges that Coin knowingly marketed a product that
it knew could not work the way they said it would," said lead
attorney Karl Kronenberger.  "The complaint further alleges that
Coin knew the statements in its crowdfunding video were false, but
proceeded to line their pockets anyway, leaving consumers stuck
with a device that does not work the way Coin promised."

COIN launched a super successful pretail self-crowdfunding
campaign buttressed by a very creative pitch video that went
viral.  The concept was to create a single credit-card sized
device that could store credit card information, including a
magnetic strip.  Users could upload credit card information while
pairing with a smartphone.  The pitch was to minimize the need to
carry multiple cards in your wallet instead of a single card to
manage them all.  Estimates placed the tally well into the
millions of dollars as the initial goal of raising $50,000 was
topped in just 40 minutes.  As many crowdfunding campaigns do,
COIN struggled with delivery and delayed the product launch as
development became mired in technological challenges.  In August
of 2014, COIN management issued an apology to backers stating;

"We are truly sorry that the first generation Coin is not ready
when we said it would.  Our team has been working hard day/night
and weekends since May 2012 in an attempt to deliver Coin to you
on time and while we are close, we are not at the finish line."
At that time, COIN offered refunds to any and all backers who
requested one.

More recently, COIN has managed to get back on track delivering
product to early backers while announcing a 2.0 version along with
a partnerships with MasterCard.  On the home page, COIN states
over 300,000 devices have been sold.  In January, COIN revealed
that over $282 million in payments had been completed using the
COIN card.

The Kronenberger lawsuit alleges that the central message in
Coin's video was that the Coin device allowed consumers to carry
just one card, and leave all their other cards at home.  In
addition to the video, this one card message was echoed in
multiple press releases, other marketing efforts, and statements
by the Coin CEO to the media.  The complaint also alleges that
after receiving their Coin devices, consumers discovered that the
devices failed to work at terminals anywhere from 15 to more than
40 percent of the time, resulting in consumers having to carry
their actual credit cards despite owning a Coin device.  The
filing also asserts that the Coin device's security feature,
designed to alert consumers when their Coin device was out of
range of their smartphone, failed to work properly as consumers
were not alerted.

DOWNER EDI: Settles Class Action Over Waratah Train Project
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Downer EDI has settled a
class action claim brought against the company by aggrieved
shareholders over its disastrous $3 billion Waratah train project.

The size of the settlement between the engineering firm and
shareholders has not been disclosed, but it is believed to be a
material portion of the original $15 million claim against the
company.

The costs of the plaintiff in the action brought by Melbourne
lawyer Mark Elliott on behalf of shareholders have also been
covered by Downer EDI.

The settlement was brokered on the fourth day of a trial in the
Victorian Supreme Court, one day after Justice John Digby ordered
the shareholders to hand over $685,000 as security for costs
incurred by Downer EDI -- a fraction of the $1.9 million request
for costs Downer EDI had made.

The court had already heard that Downer EDI knew a blow-out of
costs and delays had put the project 12 months behind schedule and
$117 million over budget more than a year before telling the
market of its troubles with the contract.

The court also heard that Downer EDI's executives had made a
pledge for "no more BS" in regards to the company's estimates for
its deeply troubled Waratah train project in December 2009, seven
months before the market was informed the project had run off the
rails.

Lawyer for shareholders Norman O'Bryan, SC presented a range of
internal documents to the court, including one report that showed
the project was over budget and lagging behind time because of
"serious errors of judgment" and "hopelessly underestimated costs"
in Downer EDI's initial bid for the contract, according to Downer
Rail head of finance Paul Levett.

Other documents showed Downer had even stopped paying the company
supplying the brakes on the trains as well as other suppliers to
keep a lid on costs, raising safety issues for commuters and
causing financial distress to its suppliers.

Meanwhile, emails sent between senior Downer executives in early
2010 said Downer had been briefed by then premier Nathan Rees that
"some [NSW] ministers would never want to deal with us again."  At
the time, the company maintained with investors that it was still
hopeful of getting the Sydney Rail contract.


DOWNER EDI: Shareholders' Lawyers Must Shoulder Security Costs
--------------------------------------------------------------
Sarah Danckert, writing for The Sydney Morning Herald, reports
that a class action against Downer EDI has avoided being derailed
after the court ordered lawyers for shareholders to stump up a
fraction of the security for the costs incurred by the engineering
firm's defense.

Lawyers for shareholders were ordered to provide $685,000 in
security for the costs by 5:00 p.m. on Feb. 8, about a third of
the $1.9 million in costs security Downer's legal team was
originally seeking.

Melbourne lawyer Mark Elliott who has brought the claim on behalf
of shareholders said the order did not threaten the trial.
Downer chief executive Grant Fenn will be called to give evidence.

"The case is not off the rails, the case is soldiering on,"
Mr. Elliott told Fairfax Media.

"I'll be handing over a cheque for $685,000 tomorrow morning".
The costs ruling was handed down by Justice John Digby at the
beginning of the Feb. 4 session in the Supreme Court of Victoria.
The class action wrangling comes as Downer posted a 24 per cent
drop in net profit to $72.1 million for six months ending December
31.

Downer has been accused in a class action brought in the Supreme
Court of Victoria of keeping its costs overruns and delays to the
Waratah project secret from its shareholders for at least six
months and up to one year.

Downer shocked the market in June 2010 with a $190 million write
down of its investment in the Waratah project due to cost
overruns, delays and its need to inject more equity in the
project.  The announcement wiped $585 million from the value of
Downer's shares.

Yet only six months earlier it had assured investors that the
project was on track.

In its defense Downer's lawyer Steven Finch, SC, said Downer's
internal estimates of the project's costs and delays did not
necessarily warrant disclosure.

"Mere delays, mere consciousness of production problems . . .
don't go anywhere unless there is a translation of that difficulty
into a balance sheet item," Mr. Finch said.

Mr. Finch said Downer had told the market after a two day board
meeting to discuss the writedown in June, 2010.

"In our view (the writedown) was reached after an intense review
in May," Mr. Finch said.

"This wasn't an announcement they had in mind for months and
months but had delayed."

Rather, Mr. Finch said Downer came to the conclusion it needed to
book a $190 million after several complex reviews which Mr. Finch
said were akin to a "reality check".

"This isn't a small group of directors agreeing to fess up what
they've known for months this is a bottom up review".

The class action has already heard Downer stopped paying its
suppliers, including BlueScope Steel and the company supplying the
brakes for the trains, to keep a lid on costs.

Internal Downer EDI documents presented to the court show the
costs on the project had blown out to $117 million over budget a
year ahead of Downer announcing the project was in trouble.

Other documents revealed the company's executives made a pledge
for "No More BS" in regards to its estimates on the project nine
months before the June 2010 announcement.

"It suggests there had been some BS going on," Lawyers for
shareholders Norman O'Bryan, SC, said.


EMC: Faces Class Action Over $67-Billion Dell Takeover
------------------------------------------------------
Antony Savvas, writing for ChannelBiz, reports that a class action
lawsuit has been filed in the US to try and prevent Dell's $67
billion takeover of EMC.

The Grant Law Firm has filed a class action complaint on behalf of
all public stockholders of EMC Corporation, who "are or will be
damaged" by a vote approving Dell's takeover.

The lawsuit claims that the preliminary proxy statement/prospectus
filed with the SEC by EMC on December 14, 2015, contains
"materially false and misleading statements and omissions of
material fact".

Specifically, the complaint asserts that the proxy statement omits
material information concerning the company's projections,
including the company's unlevered free cash flows, GAAP revenue,
gross profit, operating income, net income and EPS, and various
charges.

It also asserts that the analyses of the two investment advisers
who "opined upon the fairness" of the proposed transaction to
EMC's shareholders from a financial point of view, are "materially
misleading" and/or "make omissions of material fact".

The law firm is now seeking a lead plaintiff from among those it
claims will be negatively affected by the deal to get the class
action going.

A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of
other class members in directing the litigation.  The law firm
wants to appoint a lead plaintiff by April 1 this year.

Senior executives from both Dell and EMC have gone on the charm
offensive since the acquisition was announced last year, to
convince the market and the channel that the deal is beneficial
for both companies.

FLOWER FOODS: Class Actions Challenge Earnings Model
----------------------------------------------------
Mike Ozanian, writing for Forbes, reports that Timothy Ramey of
Pivotal Research Group's take is much of Flowers earnings growth
is due to the company's drivers -- the folks who deliver the baked
goods to the stores -- being classified as independent contractors
rather than company employees.  By doing so, Flowers enjoys a
lower distribution cost than some of its competitors--Ramey
estimates that Flowers cost advantage is 400+ basis points of
margin versus employee-delivered operators--such as the failed
Hostess Brands.

But Flowers may not be able to keep its earnings model intact too
much longer.  There has now been 18 class action suits filed on
behalf of its drivers--15 of which have been filed since May of
last year.  The lawsuits allege the company violated the federal
Fair Labor Standards Act by classifying drivers on its delivery
routes as contractors.  The suits seek payment for overtime,
employee benefits and other compensation.  One of the earliest
suits, brought in North Carolina in 2012, was granted class-action
status in March 2015, after which 15 more were filed in other
states.

The drivers appear to have a strong case.  In July 2015, the
Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of
Labor (DOL) offered an interpretation of "economic realities" as
it applies to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).  The DOL: "most
workers are employees under the FLSA," a worker is an employee
based on the "economic realities . . . not by job titles or any
agreement the parties may make,". . ."the FLSA should be liberally
construed to provide broad coverge for workes," and that studies
suggest 10-30% of employers misclassify their employees as
independent contractors.

Here's how Flowers describes its independent distribution model.

The key question, it would appear from the DOL ruling, is if the
investment by the company's distributors is used for the purpose
of sustaining a business beyond the job or project the worker is
performing? The answer seems to be no.  Why? Consider how Flowers
runs its distribution system.

Flowers delivery drivers were, back in the day, company employees.
But in the 1980s Flowers launched an innovative plan to privatize
the routes by creating independent operators. Distributors buy
their routes from Flowers.  The distributors often put nothing
down and Flowers finances them with a note of up to 10 years and
charges 12% interest.  In addition, the distributors typically
lease a truck, often through a lease arranged by Flowers.

GOPRO INC: Robbins Geller Rudman Files Class Action in Calif.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP on Feb. 4 disclosed that a class
action has been commenced in the United States District Court for
the Northern District of California on behalf of purchasers of
GoPro, Inc. securities during the period between July 21, 2015 and
January 13, 2016.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no
later than 60 days from January 14, 2016.  If you wish to discuss
this action or have any questions concerning this notice or your
rights or interests, please contact plaintiff's counsel, Shawn A.
Williams or David C. Walton of Robbins Geller at 800/449-4900 or
619/231-1058, or via e-mail at shawnw@rgrdlaw.com  or
davew@rgrdlaw.com

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

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

The complaint charges GPRO and certain of its officers and
directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
GPRO is a consumer electronics company primarily selling
mountable, wearable cameras and related accessories designed for
active or challenging physical environments, including, for
example, cameras mounted on musical instruments during concerts or
worn by athletes during sporting events.

GPRO went public in June 2014, and in November 2014, GPRO
commenced a secondary offering of its common stock, issuing
approximately 10.3 million additional shares at $75 per share.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants
issued false and misleading statements concerning the Company's
current financial condition and future revenue and earnings
prospects, including the strength of demand for its traditional
HERO model camera products and its new HERO Session model cameras.
These false and misleading statements caused the Company's
securities to trade at artificially inflated prices during the
Class Period, with its stock price reaching a high of $64.74 per
share on August 10, 2015.

On October 28, 2015, the Company announced third quarter 2015
financial results that badly missed the Company's revenue and
earnings guidance by up to $45 million and $0.07, respectively.
The Company explained that the shortfall was the result of weak
sales of its new HERO Session line of cameras, which was priced
too high, and unfavorable sales trends, which had begun in
July 2015.  In addition, GoPro's inventory had increased by more
than $70 million in the quarter.  On this news, the price of the
Company's stock fell from a close of $30.21 per share on October
28, 2015 to a close of $25.62 per share on October 29, 2015.

On December 4, 2015, the Company cut the price of its key product,
HERO4 Session, to $199.00 from $299.00, the second price cut since
the product's release in July 2015.  Then on January 13, 2016,
GPRO announced its preliminary financial results for its 2015
fourth quarter, which missed analysts' consensus estimates by $84
million.  In addition, GPRO announced that it would cut its
workforce by 7% and take a $30 million charge to account for
excess inventory, among other things.  These January 13, 2016
disclosures caused the price of GPRO stock to decline from a close
of $14.61 per share on January 13, 2016 to a close of $12.48 per
share on January 14, 2016, a decline of 80% from the stock's Class
Period high price and more than 83% from the secondary offering
price.

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

With 200 lawyers in ten offices, Robbins Geller --
http://www.rgrdlaw.com/-- represents U.S. and international
institutional investors in contingency-based securities and
corporate litigation.  The firm has obtained many of the largest
securities class action recoveries in history and was ranked first

recoveries in ISS's SCAS Top 50 report for 2014.


GREATER OMAHA: Says Former Worker's Class Action Without Merit
--------------------------------------------------------------
Russell Hubbard, writing for Omaha.com, reports that Greater Omaha
Packing Co. said on Feb. 3 that a lawsuit filed by a former worker
over hours and pay is without merit and contains allegations that
run counter to the way the company treats its more than 1,000
employees.

"His allegations are simply untrue," President Henry Davis said in
a statement.  "In fact, we categorically deny those allegations
and the implication that any of our team members are unfairly
treated."

Former boiler room worker Frederick Baglio filed a lawsuit in U.S.
District Court in Omaha.  The suit says he did not take lunch
breaks but was clocked out as if he did and was not paid for 2«
hours of work per week.  The suit seeks class-action status on
behalf of other workers at the South Omaha plant that processes as
many as 15,000 steers and heifers a week into smaller cuts for
meat distributors.

On Feb. 3, Mr. Davis said Mr. Baglio worked at the company for six
years and never complained of his treatment or working conditions.
He aired no grievances about pay discrepancies or time allotted
for breaks or restroom visits, the company said.
"We believe that once all of the facts are known, a jury will
agree that the allegations are totally unfounded and Greater Omaha
Packing will be fully exonerated," Mr. Davis said.

Of the employees at Greater Omaha, Mr. Davis said, "We pay a fair
wage, we provide good benefits for them and their families and we
provide a safe workplace."

Mr. Baglio's attorney, Robert Cowan of Houston's Bailey Peavey
Bailey law firm, said he had no comment beyond what is stated in
the lawsuit.

The suit says Mr. Baglio "regularly worked in excess of 50 hours
per week, for seven consecutive days, and did not break for lunch.
. . . He was not paid all compensation to which he was entitled."

Mr. Baglio couldn't be reached.

Greater Omaha executives said no one is denied lunch breaks.  The
executives took a reporter on a tour of the plant.

At around noon, beef carcasses stopped entering the processing
plant.  Workers began moving in small groups to lunch rooms as the
last carcasses before lunch passed their work areas.

The lunchrooms began filling, with most workers eating a meal
brought from home. A few minutes before the lunch break started, a
few workers left the production line and began heating up trays
for their co-workers in the microwaves, a procedure executives
said has been in place at the company for years.

Greater Omaha said 80 percent of the company's employees have been
working there for more than five years.  Entry-level pay starts at
about $10 to $11 an hour, with higher pay for more experienced or
highly trained workers.  Benefits, the company said, include
health insurance, a free medical clinic staffed with doctors and
nurses, English classes, citizenship assistance, 401(k) plans and
student scholarships.

"The same applies when it comes to our complying with all wage and
hour laws that apply to our team members," Mr. Davis said of the
philosophy at Greater Omaha, founded almost 100 years ago by his
grandfather.

The suit alleges violation of the U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act
and asks a judge to extend the suit to all current and former
hourly plant employees in the three years preceding the suit's
filing.

Certification or denial of a class action typically requires weeks
or months of legal arguments.

KERR-MCGEE CORP: Plaintiffs Appeal Damages Ruling in Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Eric Mark, writing for Citizens Voice, reports that plaintiffs in
a suit that alleges they were harmed by toxic waste from a
now-shuttered creosote plant have appealed a federal judge's
ruling that they must drop efforts to collect further damages.

The ruling handed down on Feb. 1 and the appeal filed on Feb. 3
are the latest developments in a case that dates back to 2005,
when about 4,000 people who lived near the creosote plant in Avoca
filed suit against Kerr-McGee, which operated the plant for 40
years before it closed in 1996.

Those plaintiffs -- who claimed they suffered a variety of serious
ailments, including cancer, due to their exposure to toxic
chemicals at the plant on a 35-acre site off York Avenue -- shared
in a multibillion-dollar settlement of a nationwide class-action
lawsuit reached in 2014 with Anadarko Petroleum Corp., parent
company of Kerr-McGee.

That settlement included an injunction that prohibited the
plaintiffs from "pursuing certain claims," according to the ruling
issued on Feb. 1 by U.S. District Court Judge Katherine B.
Forrest.

Many of the plaintiffs sought to collect further damages anyway.
They felt that frequent corporate shuffling at Kerr-McGee and its
partner companies was calculated to protect the defendants from
paying damages rightfully owed to people who had been harmed by
the effects of toxic waste, according to Jim Haddock, former mayor
of Avoca and one of the prime movers behind the suit.

"This case is not a cookie-cutter class action lawsuit,"
Mr. Haddock said on Feb. 3.  "This company has been proven to
fraudulently transfer itself. . . .  There have been at least
three different remakes of Kerr-McGee."

Kerr-McGee -- now re-formed as a new company as part of Anadarko's
bankruptcy filing -- appealed to federal court to enforce the
injunction and prevent further appeals from the plaintiffs.

Judge Forrest, following a December hearing, ruled on Feb. 1 in
favor of the defendants.

In a 59-page ruling, Judge Forrest referenced the complicated
nature of the case.

"All of this takes some time to sort through, but at the end of
the day the answer to the core question posed to this court is
clear: No plausible claim is left for the Avoca claimants to
pursue against (new) Kerr-McGee Corp.," she wrote.

On Feb. 3 the plaintiffs appealed Forrest's ruling, in a filing
from Weitz & Luxenberg, a New York City law firm.

The case now moves to the U.S. Court of Appeals, according to that
filing.

The plaintiffs -- who come from Avoca and several municipalities
surrounding it -- hold out hope for a successful appeal,
Mr. Haddock said.

"Any time there's an appeal there's a chance," he said.

"You could see the judge talked about the complexity of the case,"
he added.  "There's a lot of hope here."

The appeal could also impact the amount of damages received in
another class-action lawsuit -- this one against former attorney
Robert Powell, a key player in Luzerne County's kids for cash
scandal.

Mr. Powell served an 18-month prison sentence after admitting he
paid more than $700,000 in bribes to former Luzerne County judges
Mark A. Ciavarella Jr. and Michael Conahan, who funneled juveniles
to a detention center he co-owned.

Mr. Powell last year reached a $4.75 million settlement of a
class-action suit with juveniles improperly jailed in his
detention center.

The amount of damages Mr. Powell must pay the plaintiffs could
increase, depending on Mr. Powell's net worth as of Dec. 21, 2016,
according to the terms of the settlement.

Mr. Powell, who is now disbarred, formerly represented the
plaintiffs in the Avoca environmental suit against Kerr-McGee. His
law firm's share of the settlement reached in 2014 was about
$20 million, according to published reports.

If the Avoca plaintiffs successfully appeal for further damages
against Kerr-McGee, Mr. Powell's firm would receive a percentage
of those damages.  That could lead to a higher net worth for
Mr. Powell -- which in turn could increase the amount he owes to
plaintiffs in the kids for cash suit, based on that settlement
agreement.


KERR-MCGEE CORP: New Settlement Claimants Face Challenges
---------------------------------------------------------
Jennifer Learn-Andes, writing for Times Leader, reports that a new
round of potential claimants against the former Kerr-McGee Corp.
may face an uphill battle in their quest for damages from the now-
defunct manufacturer of railroad ties, as they weren't among
thousands who participated in a class action lawsuit filed against
the company in 2005.

Some past and present Avoca-area residents have come forward since
a bankruptcy settlement in the case -- first filed by since-
disbarred attorney Robert Powell -- was publicized, saying they
also have developed illnesses or health problems they blame on
environmental contamination from the Avoca-area manufacturing
activities of Kerr-McGee and related entities.

Kingston lawyer Edward Ciarimboli said he is representing about 15
people who are in this situation and continues to receive
inquiries from others, in light of recent local media coverage of
the bankruptcy settlement agreement.

"We don't now how this will pan out," Mr. Ciarimboli said.

His firm, Fellerman & Ciarimboli, soon will start filing actions
seeking compensation for these clients from a pot of money set
aside in the Kerr-McGee bankruptcy settlement for "future tort
claimants."

To be eligible for this money, requesters must prove their failure
to participate in the class action was the result of "excusable
neglect."

That means they must justify why they did not join thousands of
others who jointly pursued their concerns in court.

For example, some people inquiring about a claim have said they
didn't know about the suit because they moved outside the area.

Mr. Ciarimboli does not believe relocation alone will be enough of
an argument because the opportunity to participate in the class
action was widely publicized, and involved notification letters to
residents living around the Kerr-McGee site.

One of his clients has a strong case because he moved to Texas
after a divorce and did not receive mail from his ex-wife that was
sent to the local residence they previously shared,
Mr.  Ciarimboli said.

He also is representing several descendants of deceased area
residents who died before the class action suit was initiated.

The argument that health issues developed after the class action
suit may be rejected because class action participants only needed
to have exposure to the contamination, not health problems, he
said.

"I think it's a pretty high bar to prove excusable neglect,"
Mr. Ciarimboli said.

Why? To reserve settlement money for people who were shut out of
the opportunity to participate -- not those who decided not to
participate and want a "second bite at the apple," he said.

He believes about $600 million of the bankruptcy settlement was
set aside for future tort claims at Kerr-McGee locations across
the country, but that figure could not be verified on Feb. 4.

Jim Haddock, whose late mother was among the class-action
participants, said the total bankruptcy settlement was $5.1
billion, with 12.5 percent going to victims in seven groups across
the country.

The Ohio-based Garretson Resolution Group is overseeing the
settlement trust.  The trust overseers issue decisions on requests
for future tort claims, and filers have the option to seek binding
or nonbinding arbitration or file court actions if they disagree
with the decision, according to Garretson publications.

Many who lived or worked near the Avoca property have received
their payments in the bankruptcy settlement, but some are still
waiting due to issues with Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements or
the processing of estates involving plaintiffs who have died, said
Haddock, who serves as an unofficial spokesperson for the Avoca
group.

The Avoca-area plaintiffs are trying to reactivate their 2005
environmental contamination lawsuit in Luzerne County Court,
arguing they were not made whole through the bankruptcy
settlement.

A federal judge ruled the county suit must be dropped, agreeing
with the argument that the Avoca plaintiffs have no legal
authority to go back to the well.  A notice of appeal challenging
that ruling has been filed.

The bankruptcy settlement covered about 32 percent of what the
4,400 Avoca area plaintiffs had claimed in damages, said
Mr. Haddock, who is Luzerne County's civil/criminal record
overseer and a former Avoca mayor.

Mr. Haddock said around 1,600 Avoca-area residents also obtained
settlements through a previous consolidated suit against
Kerr-McGee several years before the Powell Law Group filed the
2005 litigation.  Plaintiffs who settled in the first round of
litigation could not participate in the later suit, he said.


KINDER MORGAN: Investor Gets $450,000 Incentive Fee
---------------------------------------------------
Tom Hals, writing for Reuters, reports that a former investment
banker landed a so-called incentive fee of $450,000, one of the
largest of its kind, for pursuing a securities lawsuit that led to
$100 million in damages against Kinder Morgan Inc.

Peter Brinckerhoff of Florida was awarded the fee for putting in
more than 1,500 hours on the case, which resulted in one of the
largest damage awards in the history of Delaware's Court of
Chancery, which heard the case.  The lawsuit benefited other
investors who did not actively participate in the litigation.

"I don't know if it's the largest ever, but it's remarkably large
for a securities case," said Geoffrey Miller, a professor at New
York University Law School who has researched incentive awards.

Several plaintiffs and defense attorneys who specialize in
securities class action cases said it was the largest incentive
award they had seen.

Mr. Brinckerhoff brought the suit in 2010 to challenge a deal by
El Paso Pipeline Partners, a publicly traded master limited
partnership.

Vice Chancellor Travis Laster of the Court of Chancery ruled last
year that the MLP overpaid when it acquired pipeline assets from
its controlling parent, El Paso Corp.  The judge ordered the
overpayment returned to El Paso Pipeline's investors.

Kinder Morgan later acquired El Paso, and is on the hook for the
damages.

Mr. Brinckerhoff had sought $1.35 million, a figure his lawyers
conceded in court papers was "unusual," to compensate him for
spending five years working on the case.

Mr. Brinckerhoff was an investment banker who retired from
Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette in 1991, according to court
documents.  He could not be reached for comment.

Incentive awards have been criticized as "bounties" that encourage
wasteful class actions, and in 2003 Congress briefly considered
banning them in federal courts.

Mr. Laster, who approved the award, has a reputation for being
tough on fees when he questions the value of the litigation.  In
Mr. Brinckerhoff's case, Mr. Laster awarded $33 million for
lawyers with Rosenthal, Monhait & Goddess and Bragar Eagel &
Squire.

Lawyers for the law firms did not respond to a request for
comment.

Ted Frank, a critic of what he views as abusive tactics in class
action cases, said incentive awards are more troubling when they
are paid in settlement agreements.

"I don't necessarily have a problem with it," he said of the
Brinckerhoff payment.

LAND OF LINCOLN: Faces Insurance "Bait & Switch Class Action
------------------------------------------------------------
Jonathan Bilyk, writing for Cook County Record, reports that two
Chicago men have slapped a troubled provider of Obamacare health
insurance policies with a class action lawsuit, alleging Land of
Lincoln Health misled them into purchasing health plans on the
belief the plans would include coverage for procedures at
University of Chicago Medicine, even though Land of Lincoln
allegedly knew the plans would not.

On Feb. 2, plaintiffs Daniel Blumenthal and Michael Hartzmark, who
live in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, filed their complaint in
Cook County Circuit Court against Chicago-based Land of Lincoln
Mutual Health Insurance Company, which does business as Land of
Lincoln Health Inc.

The complaint arose after Land of Lincoln notified the men in
January that the health insurance coverage they had just purchased
from Land of Lincoln in December was dropping the University of
Chicago from its network of covered health providers, effective
March 1.

Both men, who are not related, said they had purchased the health
coverage through Land of Lincoln specifically because the plans
had purportedly included coverage for care through University of
Chicago Medicine.

Mr. Blumenthal said he required the coverage for the care he
needed to receive through University of Chicago Medicine for
treatment of a "chronic disease since he was diagnosed more than
10 years ago."  The complaint does not specify the condition, but
said "the University of Chicago is recognized as a foremost
pioneer in treating this disease, and plaintiff Blumenthal's
continued treatment there is of critical importance to his
health."

Mr. Hartzmark said he purchased coverage through Land of Lincoln
for him and his wife, "who was stricken with a rare and life-
threatening viral infection in April 2015."

"Her life was saved by the medical staff at University of Chicago,
and she ultimately recovered without suffering significant brain
damage from what is typically a fatal condition," the complaint
said.

The complaint said Mr. Hartzmark purchased the package through
Land of Lincoln because he believed it would grant him "continuity
of care for his wife and the assurance of being able to utilize
the world-renowned medical institution in his own neighborhood."

Both men said they would not have purchased the coverage through
Land of Lincoln if they had known the insurer intended to drop
coverage for University of Chicago Medicine in 2016.

Yet the complaint, borrowing language from a Chicago Tribune
editorial, called Land of Lincoln's actions a "bait and switch,"
as the complaint alleged Land of Lincoln knew in December, prior
to the Dec. 18 deadline for purchasing 2016 coverage, that it had
been unsuccessful at renegotiating reimbursement rates with the
University of Chicago.

"Prior to Dec. 18, 2015, University of Chicago informed defendant
(Land of Lincoln) that it was not open to renegotiating their
reimbursement rates," the complaint said.  "Defendant -- despite
having the ability to instantaneously communicate with its
customers via email -- did not disclose this development to
consumers purchasing insurance policies for in-network coverage
for University of Chicago in 2016."

Official notification of the coverage change came first from the
University of Chicago in a Jan. 14 letter to its patients.  Land
of Lincoln mailed a notification letter on Jan. 19, telling
customers they had until Jan. 31 to find new coverage if they
wished to continue seeking care at in-network rates at University
of Chicago Medicine.

Mr. Blumenthal said the change forced him to purchase a plan
costing $170 more per month, as well as pay more than $500 for
medication in mid-January.

Mr. Hartzmark said he was forced to purchase a plan costing $825
more per month for the same coverage.

The plaintiffs are also asking the judge to certify a class of
other plaintiffs in the case, potentially including anyone who
bought Land of Lincoln 2016 policies because the policies included
coverage for care through University of Chicago Medicine.

The complaint comes as another strike against the troubled health
insurer, created as a co-op in 2012 under the federal Affordable
Care Act, also known as Obamacare.  Land of Lincoln secured a $160
million loan from the federal government in 2012 to launch
operations.  It secured an insurance license from the state of
Illinois in 2013.

According to reports published in Crain's Chicago Business, Land
of Lincoln has now lost $50 million since its inception, and has
stopped taking on new customers.

The class action complaint, which included counts of consumer
fraud and unjust enrichment, asked the court to issue injunctions
barring Land of Lincoln from continuing to engage in "similar
conduct," or from obtaining releases from potential class members.
The plaintiffs also requested damages including restitution, and
statutory, compensatory and punitive damages, with interest, plus
attorney fees.

The plaintiffs are represented by attorneys Clinton A. Krislov and
Christopher M. Hack, of Krislov & Associates, of Chicago.

NAT'L FOOTBALL: Petition Calls for Living Wage for Cheerleaders
---------------------------------------------------------------
WZZM13 reports that the Oakland Raiders' cheerleaders, the
Raiderettes, and four others NFL cheerleading squads better wages
filed class-action lawsuits against their respective teams seeking
increased compensation.  Some of the cheerleaders said they were
making less than $2 an hour and complained about working
conditions.

Now times are changing for the pom-pom shakers.

In the past 16 months, the Raiders, Cincinnati Bengals, Tampa Bay
Buccaneers and New York Jets agreed to settlements worth more than
$2.6 million combined and the guarantee of minimum-wage pay.
California legislators took action, ensuring professional
cheerleaders get workers' compensation and other benefits, and New
York legislators introduced a similar bill.

A pending suit against the Buffalo Bills could force NFL
Commissioner Roger Goodell to testify. He is a defendant because
his signature is on a contract stipulating that the Bills'
cheerleaders, the Jills, are not to be paid for performing at
games.

"It's like you see with any exploited group," said Hina Shah,
director of the Women's Employment Rights Clinic at Golden Gate
College in San Francisco.  "Once they understand what their rights
are, they become empowered to do something about it."

The fight began in 1995, when the Jills won the right to unionize
after the National Labor Relations Board ruled the cheerleaders
were not independent contractors, but rather team employees.  Even
earlier, the Bills pulled what attorneys for the cheerleaders
described as an illegal end-around.

The team farmed out the cheerleaders to a third party, which in
turn told the cheerleaders they could continue only if they agreed
to work as independent contractors -- and work for free. The union
dissolved, and one former cheerleader said work conditions grew
intolerable.

Robin Bishop, a member of the cheerleading squad in 2000, said the
cheerleaders were prohibited from wearing underwear with one set
of uniforms because it would show panty lines.

During an unscheduled weigh-in, Mr. Bishop said, one of the two
female cheerleading coaches pinched the side of Mr. Bishop's
stomach, called her "chunky," ordered her onto a diet and benched
her for one game.  One of the few ways the cheerleaders could make
money was to sell swimsuit calendars that included provocative
photos of the cheerleaders, according to Mr. Bishop.

"It just killed my self esteem as a 21-year-old girl," Mr. Bishop
told USA TODAY Sports, adding that she refused to abide by the no-
underwear rule and was in good shape at the time she was benched.
"My coaches were especially heinous.  They were just so cruel and
mean.

"I remember thinking, 'Doesn't anybody else notice this?'"

Years later, an outsider took notice of the NFL cheerleaders'
plight.

Diane Todd, who works in the health care industry and whose
daughter is a high school cheerleader in Southern California, said
in 2013 she searched online to see how much cheerleaders make.
She discovered that some NFL cheerleaders make less than $1,000
per year while mascots make as much as $65,000 per year.

"I was appalled," Ms. Todd said.

Soon after, she set up a petition on change.org calling on NFL
teams to pay cheerleaders a living wage.  The NFL did not act, but
the cheerleaders did.

One of the Raiderettes, who for privacy concerns was identified in
court documents as Lacy T., filed the first class-action suit in
January 2014.  She heard from her counterparts soon after,
according to Lacy T.'s attorney, Sharon Vinick.

"Lacy got a series of emails and texts from women she was
currently dancing with and women who had been dancers that were
vile and hateful, telling her that she had broken ranks with the
sisterhood," Ms. Vinick told USA TODAY Sports.

The next month, the Bengals' cheerleaders sued.  Two months later,
the Bills' cheerleaders sued. The month after that, Buccaneers'
and Jets' cheerleaders sued.

"It was long overdue," said Alexa Brenneman, the former Bengals
cheerleader who filed the suit against the team.   "The issue of
pay equality for women is not a new thing.  But it's new to the
NFL, and I think for a while women were really kind of intimidated
to speak up."

Manouchcar Pierre-Val, the former Buccaneers cheerleader who filed
suit against the team, noted that many of the cheerleaders who
agreed to meager pay were young and naive.

"In a sense, it's kind of taking advantage of the situation," she
said.

The litigation was brewing while the NFL dealt with the outcry
after video showed Ray Rice, then a running back with the
Baltimore Ravens, punching his then-fiancee in the face.
Ms. Vinick, the Bay Area attorney, said the cheerleaders' lawsuits
and NFL domestic violence crisis were revealing.

"That showed there was just a general disrespect for women by the
NFL," she said, adding that she knows of no other imminent
lawsuits.  "I think the fact that virtually all of the
cheerleaders are women, it's not a coincidence that they're the
worst paid people out on the field."

Still the worst paid, said Ms. Vinick, even after the lawsuits.
So far, the cheerleaders have won only the right to minimum wage,
and Ms. Vinick and the cheerleaders said they've heard other teams
have increased pay to minimum wage after the four teams settled
class-action suits.

The Bills responded to the litigation by suspending operations of
the cheerleaders.  An NFL attorney filed an affidvavit saying that
she, not Mr. Goodell, affixed the commissioner's signature by hand
stamp to approve broadcast rights, not the cheerleaders' contract.

"We expect clubs to comply with federal, state and local wage
laws," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said.

Meanwhile, Ms. Todd said she is closely monitoring her petition
calling on NFL teams to pay cheerleaders a living wage, and the
signatures of supporters have piled up.

Jerry Rice, the Hall of Fame NFL wide receiver, and Paula Abdul, a
one-time cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers, are 156,000
people who have signed the online petition.  She is waiting on
about 44,000 more signatures.

"Once 200,000 is reached," Ms. Todd said by email, "I'm looking to
take all signatures to NFL/Goodell for delivery."

PIONEER ENERGY: Settles Gas Price Collusion Class Action
--------------------------------------------------------
Cris Vilela, writing for Kingston Region, reports that if you're a
resident in Belleville or Kingston and have been feeling squeezed
at the gas pump over the past few years, you're not the only one.

In fact, area residents may still be eligible for compensation
from a class action lawsuit alleging gas price collusion in the
Kingston, Belleville and Brockville region that was settled in
January, 2014.

The website -- www.gasclassaction.com -- says that the lawsuit,
which was brought forward by the law firm Siskinds LLP, alleged
that between May 1, 2007 and November 30, 2007, several area gas
stations conspired to fix gasoline prices in Eastern Ontario.
Specifically, Pioneer Energy, Canadian Tire, Mr. Gas and Suncor
(Sunoco) were named in the suit.  The defendants opted to settle
the suit and over $1.3 million has been set aside to settle the
claims, while not admitting any wrongdoing or liability as a
result of the settlement.

According to gasclassaction.com, compensation from the lawsuit is
available for all persons who purchased gasoline (but not diesel)
from a gas station in Eastern Ontario between the 2007 dates.  The
settlement funds will be divided proportionately between
claimants, based on the value of their submitted claims.  The
minimum payment amount is expected to be approximately $25 per
claimant, but is dependent on the total number of claimants.

The website says that if you feel you are eligible to become a
member of this class action lawsuit, you must file a claim on or
before May 27, 2016 at gasclassaction.com.  No proof is required
as part of your claim unless you are selected for audit. However,
all claims exceeding $5,000 will be audited, and at least 10 per
cent of all other claims will be audited randomly, so you must be
prepared to provide proof of your purchases, or at the very least
proof of residency.  Those audited claimants who provide only
proof of residency will be limited to a claim of $1,500.  There
are no costs to submitting a claim, and payment of the claim is
expected to be between January and May of 2017.

TRONOX INC: Avoca Plaintiffs' Suits Against Kerr-McGee Barred
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Katherine B. Forrest of the United States District Court for
the Southern District of New York granted the motion filed by
Kerr-McGee Corporation to enforce an injunction against roughly
4,300 individuals (the "Avoca Plaintiffs") who allegedly suffered
injuries as the result of a wood treatment plant between the years
1956 and 1996.

In November 2014, the court approved a settlement which resolved
two lawsuits by Tronox, Incorporated and affiliated entities, and
the United States government against Kerr-Mcgee.  As part of that
settlement, the court issued a permanent injunction that
prohibited creditors in Tronox's bankruptcy action and others from
pursuing certain claims.

The Avoca Plaintiffs, however, sought to restore a number of
actions before the Court of Common Pleas of Luzerne County,
Pennsylvania that were first filed in 2005 and then stayed pending
resolution of Tronox's bankruptcy proceedings.  The Avoca
Plaintiffs argued that their complaints also asserted direct and
indirect claims against Kerr-McGee which were not extinguished
based on theories of vicarious liability, respondeat superior,
alter ego, and veil piercing.

Kerr-McGee then sought to enforce the injunction against the Avoca
Plaintiffs, asserting that the injunction forecloses further
litigation by the said plaintiffs of these claims.

Judge Forrest concluded that Tronox's bankruptcy proceeding has
extinguished the Avoca Plaintiffs' claims in the Pennsylvania
state action and that no plausible claim is left for the Avoca
Plaintiffs to pursue against Kerr-McGee.

The case is IN RE TRONOX INCORPORATED. TRONOX INCORPORATED, et
al., Plaintiffs, v. ANADARKO PETROLEUM CORPORATION, et al.,
Defendants, No. 14-cv-5495 (KBF) (S.D.N.Y.).

UNITED STATES: Class Actions Call for Military to Draft Women
-------------------------------------------------------------
Erin Delmore, writing NJTV News, reports that the U.S. military is
facing a class action for the government to draft women.

"We have an all-volunteer military.  And in order to have in the
future what we have today, which is the finest fighting force the
world has ever known, I need to be able to reach into the entirety
of the American population," said U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash
Carter in December.

Carter made history in December when he opened all jobs in the
military, including combat roles, to women.  And while the U.S.
military is an all-volunteer force, we do maintain the draft for
nearly all American men between the ages of 18 and 26. In most
cases, men have to register with the Selective Service System
within 30 days of their 18th birthday.  The Supreme Court ruled
against conscripting women in 1981.

The logic goes like this: women haven't been eligible to register
for the draft, because a country invokes the draft during times of
war, meaning, it needs people to serve in combat, and those roles
have historically been closed off to women. But now that that's
changed, people are saying, why not this, too?

"Part of me believes that asking women to register as we ask men
to register would maybe possibly open up more recruits as women
[start] to think about, well, the military is an option for me,"
said Sen. Claire McCaskill on Feb. 2.

"Senator, my personal view based on this lifting of restriction
for assignment team at MOS that every American that is physically
qualified should sign up for the draft," said Gen. Mark A. Milley,
Army chief of staff.

Mr. Milley is one of the most powerful voices in the movement.
Meet two of the most surprising: aspiring actress Monica Patricia
Pinto from Union County, and pre-veterinary student Liz Kyle-
LaBell from Morris County.  The two are plaintiffs in what their
lawyer says is the only female-led class action suit to draft
women in the country.  Neither of these women wants to enlist in
the military.

"I'm doing it because of gender equality. I feel like if men are
required to register with the draft, then women should be, too,"
Ms. Kyle-LaBell said.

Meet the plaintiffs' attorney, Roy Den Hollander. In 2007,
Hollander argued the "Ladies Night" case, claiming drink specials
and free admission to bars in the Big Apple violate the
Constitution's equal protection clause.  His suit was
unsuccessful.

"So I brought that case and I brought a couple other cases based
upon that premise: treating guys fairly.  But I didn't get
anyplace.  So I started thinking, when this draft case came up,
initially I was thinking, well, I'll find a guy, bring the case
with a guy, but then I started thinking, it'd be easier as far as
standing goes, which is a legal rule, if I brought it with a
female.  And what am I asking, or what are we asking? These ladies
are asking that they be treated fairly. That they not be barred
from something just because an accident of nature made them
female," Mr. Hollander said.

Whether you see it as women's rights or men's rights, Hollander
sees a long road ahead.  The case is now before Judge Ester Salas
in New Jersey District Court.  Mr. Hollander says the losing party
might hopscotch to the third circuit court of appeals and the
loser of that case might head for the Supreme Court.

VOLKSWAGEN GROUP: Lawyers Say Emissions Settlement No Easy Task
---------------------------------------------------------------
Howard Mintz, writing for San Jose Mercury News, reports that the
international scandal over Volkswagen's cheating on emissions
controls in its diesel engines has already produced a predictable
result -- one of the most massive legal assaults in U.S. history.

Now dozens of class-action lawsuits filed nationwide on behalf of
hundreds of thousands of angry Volkswagen owners, dealers and
others have been centralized in San Francisco federal court, where
the scramble is on to hold the German automaker accountable in a
case with billions of dollars at stake.

The lawsuits center on the fact that Volkswagen rigged the
emissions controls in its diesel engines to evade strict air
pollution standards in places like California.  The company is
accused of deliberately cutting corners on cars touted for their
fuel efficiency and air quality emissions, engineering the diesel
engines to essentially conceal the fact they were omitting as much
as 40 times allowable levels of pollutants.

David Fiol, a San Francisco lawyer and self-described "dedicated
environmentalist," was the prototypical customer Volkswagen sought
in marketing the eco-friendly features of its diesel engine cars.
By the time Fiol decided to pull the trigger on a 2012 Jetta sport
wagon for his wife, a former staffer for the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency, he believed he'd picked the type of car that
could help "save the planet."

But Mr. Fiol bought one of hundreds of thousands of cars caught up
in the scandal -- and now he's gone from prototypical Volkswagen
customer to the lead plaintiff in the first of what has become
dozens of class-action lawsuits that have landed in court.

"A car is a statement of who you are," said Mr. Fiol, who enlisted
Seattle class-action lawyer Steve Berman to take his case last
September.  "This car was a statement that you are smart and care
about the planet.  But it turns out we were a bunch of dupes who
are damaging the planet."

In what has already evolved into a sprawling court battle filled
with legal stars, all of the cases against Volkswagen have been
assigned by a special national panel to San Francisco U.S.
District Judge Charles Breyer, a veteran of some of the Bay Area's
most high-profile cases and brother of U.S. Supreme Court Justice
Stephen Breyer.

The U.S. Justice Department's lawsuit against Volkswagen, filed in
January in Detroit, also has been shifted to Judge Breyer's
control, along with dozens of fraud actions filed by state
attorneys general.  California Attorney General Kamala Harris is
investigating Volkswagen's conduct under the state's strict air
regulations, and any action she files is expected to land in Judge
Breyer's court.

With Volkswagen having already admitted wrongdoing publicly, legal
experts do not expect the cases to go to trial.  In fact, Judge
Breyer's focus already has shifted to finding a
resolution -- he has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller
to oversee settlement efforts.

But lawyers involved in the case say settlement will be no easy
task. U.S. owners of an estimated 600,000 Volkswagen cars in model
years 2009 to 2015 want their vehicles either fixed or replaced,
and to be compensated for the fact their cars are spewing
excessive amounts of pollution into the air when they were billed
as among the most eco-friendly on the market.

"The problem is that saying 'We were liable,' or 'We screwed up,'
doesn't solve the problem," said San Francisco lawyer
Elizabeth Cabraser, court-appointed head of a 21-member committee
of lawyers who assembled the class actions.  "Saying we screwed up
does not fix the vehicle."

Peninsula lawyer Frank Pitre, who represents two Stanford
University professors who bought a tainted 2013 Volkswagen Passat,
likens the case to the lawsuits against PG&E over the 2010
pipeline explosion that leveled a San Bruno neighborhood, saying a
key is to unearth how Volkswagen went about deceiving the public -
- hoping to hold top management responsible and perhaps exposing
the company to greater damages and restaints on future business
practices.

"This is coming in from all sides," Mr. Pitre said.  "I'm not sure
we have our arms around all of the cases."

Consumer advocates are hopeful the case will provide an adequate
remedy for the Volkswagen car owners, but worry too much money
might land in the pockets of lawyers, a common concern in class-
action litigation.  "Unfortunately, there is going to be a
windfall for the lawyers," said Theodore Frank of the Center for
Class Action Fairness.

The two lead lawyers for Volkswagen did not respond to requests
for comment.  But Volkswagen has pledged to fix the problem, which
extends to an estimated 11 million vehicles worldwide, and has
enlisted Kenneth Feinberg, who supervised the 9/11 victim
compensation fund, to handle the task for the automaker's
aggrieved customers.

Compensation, however, remains a tricky question, according to
legal experts.

"The remedy question remains difficult because there appears to be
no way that VW can give people the cars that it said it sold them
-- fix the pollution problem and you compromise performance and/or
economy," said Gregory Keating, a USC law professor.  "So what
should VW do? Buy them back? Fix and pay money damages for loss of
value? What's the next-best thing to do?"

Mr. Fiol, meanwhile, is frustrated by the experience.  He and his
wife still drive the car, as they have no choice, but try to
conserve on mileage to limit the environmental damage.

"We felt we were duped and felt like we turned into criminals
ourselves," Mr. Fiol said.  "We'd just like to have the car
fixed."

WAFFLE HOUSE: Pre-Employment Waiver Violates NLRA, Court Rules
--------------------------------------------------------------
Daniel Kitzes, Esq. -- daniel.kitzes@squirepb.com -- and Shar
Bahmani, Esq. -- shar.bahmani@squirepb.com -- of Squire Patton
Boggs (US) LLP, in an article for The National Law Review, reports
that nearly two years after Waffle House Inc. employee Carrie
Harris filed an unfair labor practices charge, the Georgia-based
breakfast chain was unable to butter up the National Labor
Relations Board (NLRB).  Ms. Harris' complaint alleged that Waffle
House's arbitration agreement that employees were required to
execute as a condition of their employment violated the National
Labor Relations Act (NLRA) because the agreement contained a "no
consolidated, collective, or class action arbitrations" provision.
On February 1, 2016, a split three-member panel of the NLRB agreed
with Harris that Waffle House's mandatory, pre-employment waiver
violated the NLRA because it precluded employees from pursuing
class or collective actions.  The NLRB ordered Waffle House to cut
the class-action waiver from the mandatory arbitration agreement.

Since the NLRB's 2012 decision in D.R. Horton and 2014 decision in
Murphy Oil, the NLRB has staunchly defended its position that
mandatory arbitration agreements that bar class or collective
action claims are unlawful.  So why, in the face of such steadfast
opposition, would Waffle House attempt to enforce a mandatory
waiver? Simple: the Fifth Circuit has expressly rejected the
NLRB's position -- not once but twice -- and consistently ruled
that waivers, such as the one Waffle House used, are lawful and
enforceable.

The Fifth Circuit's reversals of the Board's D.R. Horton and
Murphy Oil decisions has national implications. Employers have the
option to appeal an NLRB decision with the D.C. Circuit or any
circuit in which it has sufficient business operations. Therefore,
employers with sufficient contacts in Fifth Circuit states may
appeal an NLRB decision invalidating their arbitration agreements
even where an unfair labor practices charge has been filed against
the employer outside the Fifth Circuit. Unfortunately, however,
this leaves Waffle House and other employers caught in the middle
of the ongoing song and dance performed by the NLRB and the Fifth
Circuit.

Because the NLRB is not bound by federal court decisions except
those rendered by the U.S. Supreme Court, the difference of
opinion between the Fifth Circuit and the NLRB is likely to
continue simmering until the nation's high court weighs in on the
issue.  Some employers have attempted to avoid costly battles with
the NLRB by cooking up arbitration agreements with opt-out
provisions for class-action waivers.  However, this approach was
recently rejected by another split NLRB panel with its recent
December 22, 2015 RPM Pizza, LLC decision.  The RPM Pizza decision
was immediately submitted for appeal to the Fifth Circuit.

* Chief Justice Roberts Seeks to Limit Plaintiffs' Access
---------------------------------------------------------
KTVB.com reports that by siding with the Supreme Court's liberal
wing on two major cases, Chief Justice John Roberts lent credence
to conservatives' concerns that they can't count on his vote.

But as he moves into his second decade as the nation's 17th chief
justice, Justice Roberts is proving to be strikingly consistent in
one area that conservatives applaud.  He wants to close the
courthouse doors to challengers with tenuous legal grounds or
claims, thereby limiting the role of the judicial branch he leads.

That desire has been on display regularly during the first half of
the high court's 2015 term, both in rulings Chief Justice Roberts
joined and in those he opposed.  At nearly every opportunity, he
voted to limit plaintiffs' access -- demanding that they prove
being harmed, back up their challenge with facts, and opt for
arbitration over litigation.

The chief justice wrote the court's first decision of the term,
ruling Dec. 1 that a California woman had no right to sue the
Austrian national railroad in a U.S. court for severe injuries she
suffered on a train platform in Innsbruck.

Two weeks later, he joined the court's 6-3 majority ruling that
California customers cannot join a class action lawsuit against
satellite TV provider DIRECTV because a federal law favoring
arbitration over litigation trumps state law.

Chief Justice Roberts closed out the month in his year-end report
Dec. 31 by lauding federal rules changes aimed at cutting down on
frivolous lawsuits and dilatory practices that delay justice.  In
essence, he called for a leaner, meaner federal bench and bar.

"We must engineer a change in our legal culture that places a
premium on the public's interest in speedy, fair, and efficient
justice," Chief Justice Roberts said.

In January, Chief Justice Roberts didn't get his way in a class-
action decision written by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg that let a
plaintiff pursue his case even after the company he sued offered
full restitution. The chief justice wrote a stinging, 10-page
dissent.

"A plaintiff is not the judge of whether federal litigation is
necessary, and a mere desire that there be federal litigation --
for whatever reason -- does not make it necessary," Chief Justice
Roberts said.

Two more class action cases argued in November likely will be
decided soon.  In both cases, Chief Justice Roberts asked
skeptical questions.

The bigger showdown may come in April, when the court hears the
Obama administration's challenge to a federal appeals court order
blocking its immigration initiative.  The program would delay
deportation of more than 4 million adults whose children are
citizens or lawful residents.

A key question is whether Texas and 25 other states are qualified
to bring the case, based solely on the cost of issuing driver's
licenses.  If Chief Justice Roberts holds true to form on court
"standing," his vote might help the administration.

More malleable on other issues, to the consternation of
conservatives, Chief Justice Roberts has been a stickler on court
access his entire career.  At his confirmation hearing in 2005, he
cited Chief Justice John Jay's refusal in 1793 to offer advice to
President George Washington on the war between Great Britain and
France.  He dredged up that 223-year-old letter again in his
recent class action dissent.

"Judges should be very careful to make sure they've got a real
case or controversy before them," Chief Justice Roberts said.

Over the years, the chief justice has consistently voted to close
the courthouse doors on claims and claimants he judged to be
dubious -- and not only when it benefited the conservative cause.
His refusal in 2013 to let opponents of gay marriage in California
represent the state in a lawsuit brought by gay and lesbian
couples brought same-sex marriage to the nation's most populous
state.

In a report on Chief Justice Roberts' first decade as chief
justice, the liberal Constitutional Accountability Center found
him uniformly stingy on standing and generous on forced
arbitration.

"He has repeatedly emphasized that the role of the courts should
be limited, that they're not there to solve policy debates," says
Elizabeth Wydra, the group's president.

Chief Justice Roberts' preferences and his court's precedents are
starting to filter down to lower federal courts.  In the year
ending Sept. 30, the number of cases filed at federal appellate,
district and bankruptcy cases all declined, following a trend
begun several years ago.  The Supreme Court has seen a 13% drop
over five years.

To liberals, the trend is ominous. Brian Wolfman, co-director of
the Supreme Court litigation clinic at Stanford Law School and
former director of Public Citizen Litigation Group, says the trend
from class action lawsuits toward arbitration penalizes consumers
and workers who cannot afford to sue on their own.

"The consumer is effectively shut out from the civil justice
system, and the employer or the corporation is effectively
creating its own law," Mr. Wolfman says.

Conservatives say Roberts isn't picking winners and losers.  They
see his goal as cajoling courts to play a more limited role in
society, like that of an umpire at a baseball game -- a favorite
Roberts analogy.

"The chief justice, in particular, and the majority on the court
are suspicious of using the courts as a way of addressing larger
questions of social or economic policy," says Jonathan Adler, a
professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Law.  "The
chief does not want the court to be at the center of high-profile,
high-consequence fights."
* Class Action Reform Bill Not That Radical, Legal Expert Says
--------------------------------------------------------------
Jessica Karmasek, writing for Legal Newsline, reports that a class
action reform bill currently making its way through Congress isn't
that radical, one legal expert says.

Jason Johnston, a law professor at University of Virginia who
teaches courses on contracts, economic regulation and torts, among
others, said the aim of the bill, H.R. 1927 or the Fairness in
Class Action Litigation and Furthering Asbestos Claim Transparency
Act of 2015, is something that's already expected of federal court
judges.

Mr. Johnston, who is currently working on a study of consumer
class actions, explained that, at the certification stage, federal
judges need to make sure common issues predominate.

"If they don't do that, then they shouldn't certify the class,
plain and simple," he said.  "The problem is, while most of these
judges take their jobs seriously, there are a lot who don't. So
they have a class certified when it probably really shouldn't.

"And I think that's what this bill is trying to get at. In that
sense, it's important."

In December, the class action reform bill was merged with a bill
that targets the asbestos injury compensation system.  In January,
after hours of debate and the rejection of several Democrat-
proposed amendments, the Republican-controlled House passed the
mega-bill 211-188. Sixteen Republicans voted against the bill. No
Democrat voted for it.

The legislation aims to reform the current federal class action
lawsuit framework by requiring uninjured parties to be part of
separate class action lawsuits than those parties experiencing
more extensive injuries.

"Only those people who share injuries of the same type and extent
should be part of a class action lawsuit," House Judiciary
Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said when introducing the
bill in April.

According to data from the Administrative Office of the U.S.
Courts, the legislation could reduce the number of class action
lawsuits filed and the number of plaintiffs in them, but also
could increase the administrative burden on the courts.

Mr. Johnston shot down arguments by the bill's opponents that it
makes nearly all class actions impossible to bring.

"I've heard that some argue this might make it more difficult to
bring, for example, civil rights lawsuits," he said.  "But I don't
see why that would be the case.  Even in a civil rights class
action, if someone has suffered discrimination in some form,
again, as a judge, I'm supposed to ensure that everyone in the
class has suffered that same type of discrimination."

The bill basically will end up weeding out those frivolous, or
weak, class actions, he said.

"I can't even tell you how many cases I've seen where people
haven't suffered an injury, much less the same one," Mr. Johnston
said of his current study, which takes a look at consumer class
actions filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District
of Illinois.

Mr. Johnston agreed with proponents that such overbroad, no-injury
class actions typically only result in big paydays for attorneys,
often leaving classes with next to nothing.

"The big concrete economic effect (of the bill) is on the trial
bar," he said.  "Plaintiffs attorneys make a lot of money on these
class actions, but they generate very little in terms of monetary
payouts for the class.

"So the trial bar could lose a lot of money if this passes."

But, of course, it won't, Mr. Johnston said.

He said if it passes the Senate, it won't be overwhelmingly. And
the White House already has threatened to veto the bill.

"The trial bar is one of the biggest contributors to Senate and
Presidential campaigns," Mr. Johnston noted.

Indeed, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid could end up killing
it, given his own ties to plaintiffs' firms.  According to
OpenSecrets.org -- an online resource for federal campaign
contributions and lobbying data -- six of Reid's top seven, and
eight of his top 12, political donors in the 2014 cycle were
plaintiffs' firms with significant asbestos action.

Stacey Slaughter, a partner at the Minneapolis and New York
offices of Robins Kaplan LLP, said she expects the measure to pass
the Senate -- largely along party lines, similar to the House
vote.

Ms. Slaughter, whose firm represents clients on both sides of the
legislation, said the bill has its pluses and minuses.

Proponents, she said, argue that the measure will separate class
members who are actually injured from those who are not, making
compensation and recovery fair.

Critics, she pointed out, contend the legislation simply makes it
easier for a company to avoid liability to all its victims.

However, plaintiffs attorneys tend to target smaller firms, Mr.
Johnston said.  And the settlements can be "devastating," he said.

"The question is, are these lawsuits that effective? The trial bar
argues that their fees are justified because these class action
settlements deter this type of behavior by other companies," he
said.  "But I can't say that's the case.  So far, from the case
I've studied, I would say no.  I haven't seen anything that has
shown a change in behavior on the part of defendants.

"So then the question is, if they're compensating classes properly
and not deterring defendants, then why are these attorneys getting
millions?"

Mr. Johnston said he expects the bill, if vetoed by President
Barack Obama, to be introduced again in the near future.

"Bills like this will continue to be put forth in Congress," he
said, confidently.


* New Bill Aims to Strictly Limit Use of Arbitration
----------------------------------------------------
Jessica Silver-Greenberg and Michael Corkery, writing for The New
York Times, report that two leading Senate Democrats introduced a
bill on Feb. 4 that would strictly limit the use of arbitration, a
process used to resolve legal disputes that is often stacked
against consumers.

The bill, introduced by Senator Patrick J. Leahy, Democrat of
Vermont, and co-sponsored by Senator Al Franken, Democrat of
Minnesota, would prevent civil rights cases, employment disputes
and other crucial lawsuits from being forced into arbitration,
where judges and juries have been replaced by arbitrators who
commonly consider the companies their clients.

"Legal fine print tips the scales against us," Mr. Leahy said. "It
is forcing consumers into private arbitration, denying us of our
constitutional right to protect ourselves in court."

Regulators and lawmakers have been pushing to prevent companies,
large and small, from inserting arbitration clauses in contracts.
It is virtually impossible to rent a car, open a bank account, get
a job or enroll an elderly parent in a nursing home without
signing away the right to take a case to court.

Embedded in tens of millions of contracts, the clauses prevent
Americans from joining in class-action lawsuits, the only
realistic way that an individual can do battle with a wealthy
corporation.

The prevalence of arbitration clauses was the subject of a series
of articles in The New York Times last year.  Since then, efforts
to rein in the practice have gained momentum, giving rise to
several legislative proposals and calls on the Obama
administration to use executive authority to bar federal
contractors from using arbitration.

In its investigation, based on thousands of court records and
interviews with hundreds of lawyers, judges and arbitrators in 35
states, The Times found that by using arbitration clauses
corporations can circumvent the courts and quash challenges to
discrimination, predatory lending and even wrongful death.

Once their class action is derailed, few people, The Times found,
go to arbitration at all.  Those who do confront a system that
gives companies so much latitude that in some cases they can
require customers to go to Christian arbitration, which is bound
by the Bible rather than state or federal law.

The bill introduced on Feb. 4 is likely to face intense
opposition, in Congress and from the business lobby.  Other bills,
including one that aimed to protect exempt service members from
arbitration, have met fierce resistance from banks and the U.S.
Chamber of Commerce.

Behind the latest bill is an acknowledgment that critical laws
resulting from the civil rights and disability rights movements
are fatally undermined by arbitration.

If enacted, the bill would make claims brought under laws like the
Family Medical Leave Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act exempt
from arbitration.

In a statement on Feb. 4, Mr. Leahy highlighted the example of a
woman who lost her job after a miscarriage prevented her from
going to work, a potential violation of the Family and Medical
Leave Act. Her case was pushed out of court and into arbitration.

"Our legislation is common-sense reform that will help to restore
Americans' right to challenge unfair practices by corporations,
and it needs to be passed into law," Mr. Franken said.
