ALAMEDA COUNTY, CA: Food Stamps Reporting Requirements Suspended
----------------------------------------------------------------
Helen Christophi, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported
that a federal judge on July 29, temporarily suspended an order
that Alameda County report on its attempt to speed up processing
of food stamp applications, but refused to alter a second part of
the injunction.

The county sought to modify two provisions of a permanent
injunction: that its social services agency report on "pending,
expedited applications" for food stamps; and that it inform
applicants of the need to recertify their benefits to keep
receiving them.

U.S. District Judge James Donato on July 29, suspended the
reporting requirement for three months, but refused to touch the
recertification.

"It is a trivial, de minimis step consistent with the spirit of
the injunction," Donato said. "I think it will benefit the class,
and I have not heard a single thing that persuades me that Alameda
is put out even in the slightest."

Lead plaintiff Donald Ray Lilley's September 2015 class action
claimed Alameda County's tardy processing left more than 10,000
people waiting for benefits in the East Bay.

Donato in March ordered the county social services agency to
process food stamp applications faster.

Federal law requires that counties process applications for
CalFresh food stamp benefits within 30 days and emergency food
assistance requests within three days.

At the end of July 2015, Alameda County had 10,657 pending
CalFresh applications and ranked dead last among the state's 58
counties for processing requests on time, according to the state's
Department of Social Services.

The injunction requires the county to submit monthly reports to
plaintiffs' counsel on the number of applications received and
processed, and those not assigned to a caseworker within seven
days.  If the percentage of applications denied exceeds the
percentage denied in the previous month by more than 10 percent,
the county must turn over a random sample of 30 cases to
plaintiffs' counsel to determine if the denials were properly
issued.

The Social Services Agency has increased its rate for processing
pending, expedited applications by 10 percent in the past six
months to a rate of 96 percent in June, the county said in a July
8 reply memorandum.

"The agency clearly does not need information about pending,
expedited applications to improve its timeliness rate," the county
said in the reply memorandum.

But Donato said he does not understand why the county refuses to
include language about recertification in its notice materials to
applicants.

Defendants' counsel Eri Reding said the recertification language
is unnecessary because CalFresh applicants already receive
information about it through multiple channels.

"It's not like there is a void of information on this topic," she
said.

"Why is a little extra [information] going to kill you?" Donato
asked, adding that making the changes would be easy. Changes to
electronic materials would need to be made just one time and
posters need be updated with a single sentence, he said.

Redding said application processing is a small part of the
CalFresh program, and that the plaintiffs' premise for including
recertification language could be applied to the other components
of the CalFresh program.

Donato was not persuaded.

"Typically, you draw the line when it is one step too far," the
judge said. "It is hard for me see how a little tiny change in
your applications one time is a step too far."

Plaintiffs' attorney Thomas Loran said the recertification
language is needed to protect applicants from unknowingly being
dropped from the system and learning only at the grocery store
that they can't pay for their food.

"It's a draconian outcome if it does happen," Loran said. "It's
difficult to come back from that and we wanted to be sure the
county has taken affirmative steps to make sure that is not
happening."

In their opposition to the county's motion to modify the
injunction, the plaintiffs said they tried to compromise with the
county by requiring that it update its posters and paper
applications only going forward, so it would not have to spend
money reprinting them, but the county rejected the compromise.

ANHEUSER-BUSCH COMPANIES: Vasquez Seeks Certification of Class
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled DR. HENRY VAZQUEZ, et al., the Plaintiff(s),
v. ANHEUSER-BUSCH COMPANIES, the Defendant(s), Case No. 1:16-cv-
21181-UU (S.D. Fla.), the Plaintiff asks the Court to certify a
class:

     "(1) a national class for claims of unjust enrichment, (2) a
      Florida class for violations of the Florida Deceptive and
      Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA) and punitive damages,
      and (3) a Florida class for injunctive relief -- with all
      classes defined as including retail consumers who purchased
      Leffe beer within the United States (or Florida as
      appropriate) for personal, family, or household purposes,
      within four years prior to the filing of the Compliant in
      the case."

The case involves consumer protection claims that arise from
uniform misrepresentations by the Defendant to all members of the
classes. The Defendant deceptively markets its Leffe Brown and
Leffe Blonde beer to the public as "authentic abbey ale" from the
Abbey de Leffe, when it is in fact a factory-produced mass
consumer product brewed at the Stella Artois Brewery in Leuven,
Belgium, and properly described as no more than a commercial
"abbey-style" beer.

ARIZONA: Refugees File Class Suit over Medicaid
-----------------------------------------------
Lourdes Medrano, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported
that Arizona's latest illegal attack on immigrants is to reduce
their Medicaid benefits to "emergency only," in violation of the
Constitution and the Medicaid Act, refugees say in Tucson federal
class action.

Lead plaintiffs Aita Darjee, a refugee from Nepal, and Alma
Sanchez Haro, a battered woman who has lived in the United States
for more than 20 years, are legal permanent residents who were
transferred to "emergency only" medical care despite no change in
their immigration status.

"These are persons who really don't have a lot of resources," said
their attorney Ellen Katz. "Many of these persons are refugees;
they came to the United States for humanitarian reasons."

Katz's clients sued Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System
(AHCCCS) Director Thomas Betlach, on July 22.

Depending on their legal status, some immigrants are eligible for
full Medicaid coverage while others qualify for medical care only
in emergencies. States need not participate in the Medicaid
program, but if they do, they must abide by the federal Medicare
and Social Security Acts.

Arizona has been violating these laws for at least 18 months, by
sending thousands of letters to poor immigrants, reducing their
Medicaid coverage to emergency-only, the complaint states.

The state admits this. When the refugees' attorneys protested in
an October 2015 letter to the state, "AHCCCS admitted it
identified over 3,500 immigrants improperly transferred to
emergency-only AHCCCS and reinstated these persons to full-scope
AHCCCS," according to the complaint.

However, it continues: "The improper reductions of immigrant
medical benefits from full-scope AHCCCS continue. As 2016
progressed, AHCCCS improperly reduced the medical benefits for
some immigrants a second time."

As a result, "participants with significant medical conditions,
including persons with diabetes, mental health conditions, asthma
and high blood pressure, have been left without needed medical
care."

One of them is Darjee, a 30-year-old Tucson resident who came to
the United States with her family in 2011. As refugees, Darjee,
her husband and their son became eligible for full AHCCCS
benefits. A year later they became permanent legal residents and
notified the state agency, which subsequently reduced their
benefits to emergency-only.

Their medical coverage was restored, but it was reduced again this
month. Darjee's husband, Dambar, has diabetes, high blood pressure
and asthma.

"They are very stressed over this situation," the lawsuit states.
"Plaintiff Darjee is especially worried about her husband."

Tucson resident Sanchez Haro, 48, received notice of her coverage
reduction in April. A victim of domestic violence, in 2003 she
received a special visa through the Violence Against Women Act,
which made her eligible for full AHCCCS benefits. In 2015, she
became a legal permanent resident and reported her change in legal
status to the agency.

Sanchez Haro, a diabetic who suffers from chronic depression and
other illnesses, called AHCCCS for an explanation and was told the
change occurred because she has been a permanent resident for less
than five years.

In 1996, Congress approved the Personal Responsibility and Work
Opportunity Reconciliation Act in a push to overhaul the nation's
welfare system. The legislation included eligibility changes for
immigrants, requiring them to live in the United States for five
years before qualifying for public benefits.

But the lawsuit notes that while immigrants who arrived in the
United States after August 1996 must meet the five-year
requirement, federal law exempts certain immigrants -- such as the
lead plaintiffs -- and makes them eligible for full AHCCCS
benefits.

"These mistakes should not be happening," Katz said. She said
AHCCCS has the information it needs about her clients and the
class, and presumably knows the law.

The refugees seek class certification, declaratory judgment that
AHCCCS is violating the Medicaid Act and the Due Process Clause of
the Constitution, reinstatement of full Medicaid benefits, an
injunction and costs of suit.

Katz, with the William E. Morris Institute for Justice in Phoenix,
is assisted by attorneys with the National Health Law Program in
Los Angeles.

AHCCCS officials could not be immediately reached for comment
July 26.

remedies under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act).

In 2012, the Company engaged in a merger with Irish headquartered
Cooper Industries plc., which reincorporated the Company in
Ireland. In response to questions regarding the effect of the
Merger on the Company's ability to spin-off its businesses, Eaton
executives falsely assured investors and the market of the
continued feasibility of divesting the Company's automobile-part
manufacturing business on a tax-free basis. This prospect was key
to investors' and analysts' ability to value the Company. As a
result, Eaton and its executives artificially inflated the price
of Eaton stock.

marketed to customers in the industrial, agricultural,
construction, aerospace, and vehicle markets. The Company's
products include hydraulic equipment, fluid connectors, electrical
distribution equipment, and engine components.

FIAT CHRYSLER: Must Recall Jeep Grand Cherokee, Class Suit Says
---------------------------------------------------------------
Nick Divito, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported that
in the wake of a fatal accident involving a Jeep Grand Cherokee
that took a young Star Trek actor's life, a lawsuit filed in
Brooklyn is demanding the vehicle be recalled by manufacturers.

In July 2015, the federal government slapped Fiat Chrysler
Automobiles with a record $105 million judgment to spur an
overhaul of the automaker's safety and recall practices.  But the
controversy over the safety of FCA vehicles flared anew on June
19, when the 27-year-old actor Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin was
fatally pinned by his car after it rolled down the steep driveway
of his L.A. home.

In a class action filed in Brooklyn Federal Court on July 26,
Grand Cherokee owners Janella Mack and Michael Cruz say it's high
time something is done about their vehicle's safety defect.

"This case concerns the simple task of shifting a vehicle into
park," their attorneys opined in the opening of their complaint.

"FCA has taken the simple process, traditionally straightforward
and free from confusion, and implemented a defective and dangerous
gear-shifting mechanism."

"In short, FCA replaced the traditional gearshift with a joystick
and failed to consider the implications to consumer safety," the
plaintiffs say.

Fiat Chrysler called the lawsuit moot, noting it has already
implemented the sought-after remedy.

"Moreover, the vehicles addressed in this action are among the
most valued and sought after vehicles on the road today," the
company said in a statement. "Allegations that their resale value
is somehow diminished by a recall are completely unsubstantiated."

FCA had installed the new e-shift gearshifts in its 2014-2015
models of Jeep Grand Cherokees, 2012-2014 Dodge Charges, and its
2012-2014 Chrysler 300 sedans.  But, plaintiffs argue, the e-shift
system never truly shifts or locks into a gear position when the
car is turned off, putting nearly a million drivers at risk
because they will "inadvertently fail to park their vehicles while
their vehicle is still running."

Plaintiffs say that because the e-shift system doesn't work like
traditional gear shifts, hundreds of unknowing drivers have left
their cars thinking they were pushed into park, and that the cars
rolled away without them.  Plaintiffs say other competing car
manufacturers have successfully implemented similar electronic
gear shift assemblies that automatically puts the car they're
driving into neutral when the driver's door is opened or the foot
brake is released.  Such a safety other manufactures have
implemented "prevents the type of rollaway incidents that plague
owners of the defective vehicles and illustrates the necessity of
designing fail-safe mechanisms for unfamiliar new vehicle
technologies."

The situation creates an "unreasonable risk of harm to drivers,
passengers and bystanders," attorneys say.

The plaintiffs want restitution, and an order to force FCA to
issue a warning not to drive its vehicles.

to conditionally certify a Fair Labor Standards Act collective
action and authorize notice to be issued to all persons similarly

Garda CL Great Lakes Inc., currently or within three years prior
to June 22, 2016, the date the Court conditionally certified this
as a collective action, in those branches which do not have a
Collective Bargaining Agreement, and who were not paid overtime
wages for working more than 40 hours in those weeks in which they
drove vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating 10,000 pounds or

appropriate.

situated, the Plaintiff(s), v. GREATER NEW YORK HOME CARE, LLC,
the Defendant(s), Case No. 512574/2016 (N.Y. Sup. Ct., July 21,

time and one half the minimum wage rate for hours worked in excess

         (NVRA) based on the removal of names of otherwise
         qualified voters from the statewide voter registration

         for removal of the names of voters from the statewide
         voter database for reasons not permitted by the NVRA;

     (4) violation of the NVRA, which requires the State to
         complete any program to remove names from the list of
         eligible voters no later than 90 days before a primary
         election; and

     (5) Privileges and Immunities Clause violation based on the

         verify documentary proof of citizenship (DPOC).

The Court further:

     1. granted Defendant's motion in part and denying in part;

     2. dismissed Plaintiff Bednasek's NVRA claims for failure

LIBERTY LIFE: Bush Moves for Certification of Class Under ERISA
---------------------------------------------------------------
James Bush moves the Court for an order certifying claims in the
lawsuit styled JAMES L. BUSH v. LIBERTY LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY OF
BOSTON; HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA, Case No. 4:14-cv-01507-YGR (N.D.
Cal.).  He brought the purported class claims under the Employee
Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.

On June 15, 2016, Mr. Bush informs the Court that he and Liberty
Life had resolved an impasse in the ongoing discussions of a class
settlement, and final resolution with Liberty Life appeared
imminent.  As such, he believes that any class certification
motion would relate only to the claims involving Defendant Hyundai
Motor America and he would have to file a revised motion for class
certification.

Mr. Bush also informs the Court that as of the filing of this
Motion, he and Liberty Life are in the final stages of finalizing
and executing the settlement documents.  He adds that he and
Hyundai have made progress towards reaching a settlement.

The Plaintiff and Liberty Life anticipate filing a motion for
preliminary approval of a class action settlement well prior to
the Opposition deadline of September 6, 2016.  At the time of
filing the motion for preliminary approval, Mr. Bush says he will
withdraw the motion for class certification as it pertains to
Liberty Life.  If he and Hyundai reach a settlement, then he will
withdraw the motion altogether.

The Court will commence a hearing on October 18, 2016, at 2:00
p.m., to consider the Motion.

LIBERTY MUTUAL: Court Granted Class Cert. Bid in "Laffollette"
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon NANETTE K. Laughrey entered an order in the lawsuit styled
ERIC LAFOLLETTE and CAMILLE LAFOLLETTE, individually and on behalf
of others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v. LIBERTY MUTUAL
FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY, the Defendant, Case No. 2:14-cv-04147-NKL
(W.D. Mo.), granting Lafollettes' motion for class certification
of Liberty Mutual property insurance policyholders in Missouri
whose ACV payments were reduced for payment of a deductible.

The class is defined as:

     "All persons who received an ACV payment, directly or
      indirectly, from Liberty Mutual Fire Insurance Company for
      physical loss or damage to their dwelling or other
      structures located in the state of Missouri arising under
      policy Form HO 03 (Edition 04 91) and endorsements, such
      payments arising from losses that occurred from April 8,
      2004 to the date of class certification, where a deductible
      was applied to the ACV payment for the person's dwelling or
      other structure (Coverage A and/or B)."

Excluded from the Class are: (1) All persons who received a
replacement cost payment from Liberty Mutual Fire Insurance
Company under Coverage A and/or B; (2) All persons whose
payment(s) plus the amount of any deductible applied was less than
$2,500; (3) Liberty Mutual Fire Insurance Company and its
affiliates, officers, and directors; (4) Members of the judiciary
and their staff to whom this action is assigned; and (5)
Plaintiffs' Counsel.

As Liberty Mutual's arguments related to the motion to strike have
already been rejected by the Court on the merits and striking them
would serve no useful purpose, the Lafollettes' motion to strike
is denied.

MEDREMIT INC: Boileve Seeks Certification of Class
--------------------------------------------------
In the class action lawsuit styled CARLOS M. BOILEVE, DC, MCS-P,
individually and as the representative of a class of similarly-
situated persons, the Plaintiff, v. MEDREMIT INC., a California
corporation, and JOHN DOES 1-5, the Defendants, Case No. 1:16-cv-
07662 (N.D. Ill.), the Plaintiff asks the Court to certify a
class:

     "All persons who (1) on or after four years prior to the
      filing of this action, (2) were sent telephone facsimile
      messages of material advertising the commercial
      availability or quality of any property, goods, or services
      by or on behalf of Defendants, and (3) which Defendants did
      not have prior express permission or invitation, or (4)
      which did not display a proper opt-out notice."

To avoid the risk of a defendant mooting a putative class
representative's individual stake in the litigation, the Seventh
Circuit in Damasco instructed plaintiffs to file a certification
motion with the complaint, along with a motion to stay briefing on
the certification motion until discovery could commence.  Damasco
v. Clearwire Corp., 662 F.3d 891 (7th Cir. 2011), overruled,
Chapman v. First Index, Inc., 796 F.3d 783, 787 (7th Cir. 2015).

As this motion to certify a class is a placeholder motion as
described in Damasco, the parties and the Court should not be
burdened with unnecessary paperwork and the resulting expense when
a one paragraph, single page motion to certify and stay should
suffice until an amended motion is filed, the Plaintiffs contend.

The Plaintiff also requests that the Court certify appoint himself
as the class representative, and appoint Plaintiff's attorneys as
class counsel.

PALCO INC: "Wells" Suit Seeks Unpaid Overtime Wages Under FLSA
--------------------------------------------------------------
CITIA WELLS, for herself and on behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, v. PALCO, INC., ALICIA A. PALADINO, and
LARRY A PALADINO, the Defendant, Case No. 4:16-cv-00527-SWW (E.D.
Ark., July 22, 2016), seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages,
compensation, and overtime wages for hours worked but not recorded
or paid, under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Wells was paid hourly based on how long she was logged into the
Palco Financial Portal. The portal tracked the amount of hours per
week Wells was logged in and the Defendant would pay Wells based
on that number. Palco only paid financial counselors overtime
premiums when their logged in hours exceeded forty in a workweek
and they had received prior approval. The Defendants did not
provide time sheets or a time clock for financial counselors to
record the time they worked including their drive time. The
Plaintiff was required to work overtime hours in excess of a 40-
hour workweek.

Palco provides financial management services and supports
brokerage to individuals on home and community-based services.

Progressive Insurance Company, David Keith Bowser, Katie Lade, as
individual and also in their official capacities, the Defendants,
Case No. 4:16-cv-01214 (E.D. Mo., July 25, 2016).

Progressive Corporation provides car insurance in the United
States. The company also insures motorcycles, boats, RVs and

The Plaintiff appears pro se.


QUALCOM INC: Settles Gender Bias Suit for $19.5 Million
-------------------------------------------------------
Bianca Bruno, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported that
Qualcomm dodged a gender discrimination class action in San Diego,
July 26, by agreeing to pay $19.5 million to 3,300 female STEM
employees who claim they were denied promotions and equal pay.

The suit was brought by Dandan Pan, Wei Shi, Laura Paquin, Blanche
Mutulich, Connie Jacobson, Carrie Haluza and Carolina Dealy on
behalf of thousands of other Qualcomm employees who claim the
company engaged in gender discrimination through pay, raises, job
assignments and placement.

The women also claim Qualcomm discriminated against them based on
pregnancy and childbirth, in violation of California family leave
laws. The women cited internal reports from Qualcomm which show
women hold less than 15 percent of what the company describes as
"senior leadership positions," in pointing out the systemic ways
female employees were discriminated against.

The class is represented by well-known class action law firm
Sanford Heisler.

Both parties conducted an extensive analysis of Qualcomm's
employment and payroll data and hired nationally renowned labor
economists to identify and document specific steps Qualcomm could
take to make "meaningful enhancements" to its employment
practices, according to Sanford Heisler.

Meeting in April and June for pre-suit settlement negotiations
before mediator David Rotman, both parties agreed all women who
worked in "covered positions" from Dec. 4, 2012, through the date
of the order granting preliminary approval would be eligible to
participate in the class. Eligible employees must have worked in
salaried exempt or non-exempt positions and the settlement does
not apply to interns, temporary or contract workers and a host of
divisions and departments within the company including public
relations and sales.

As part of the settlement process, the plaintiffs were required to
file a class complaint and move for preliminary approval of the
agreement in Federal Court.

In addition to the hefty settlement, the agreement requires
Qualcomm to enact extensive internal changes including hiring two
independent consultants who specialize in "industrial
organizational psychology." The consultants will assess the
company's policies and practices and make recommendations of
changes Qualcomm should make in order to make the company a more
equitable workplace for women, according to the agreement.

An internal compliance officer will also be hired to ensure the
continued compliance with the terms of the settlement.

Among the structural changes Qualcomm will make are investing in
leadership development initiatives and educating employees on non-
discrimination policies, to revamping the company's complaint
procedures, according to Sanford Heisler.

Qualcomm denies all claims of wrongdoing, according to the
agreement. In an email, the company's vice president of public
affairs Christine Trimble said the company elected to settle
despite "strong defenses" to the lawsuit.

"Qualcomm is committed to treating its employees fairly and
equitably. While we have strong defenses to the claims, we elected
to focus on continuing to make meaningful enhancements to our
internal programs and processes that drive equity and a diverse
and inclusive workforce which are values that we share and
embrace. The settlement is still subject to court approval so we
cannot comment further," Trimble said.

VOLKSWAGEN GROUP: Washington State Slaps $176 Million Fine
----------------------------------------------------------
Jamie Henneman, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported that
after settling a nationwide class action and claims by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency, Volkswagen took another punch
from Washington state for violating air quality standards with
software designed to cheat vehicle emissions tests.

The Washington State Department of Ecology fined Volkswagen $176
million for environmental damage caused by the more than 21,000
vehicles registered in Washington with software designed to cheat
emissions tests. Washington state will also be awarded $103.9
million as their part of the $14.7 billion dollar settlement
between Volkswagen and the EPA.

The department said the Volkswagen diesel vehicles emitted up to
40 times the permitted levels of harmful nitrogen oxides.

"Volkswagen's actions violated our state's air quality laws and
put people's health at risk," Ecology director Maia Bellon said.
"This has caused irreparable damage to the publics' trust."

Department spokeswoman Camille St. Onge said exposure to nitrogen
oxides is linked to a range of serious health effects including
increased asthma attacks, and contributes to premature death from
respiratory-related and cardiovascular disease. Children, the
elderly, and people with preexisting respiratory diseases are
particularly vulnerable to these pollutants.

Volkswagen has 30 days to appeal the penalty to the Washington
Pollution Control Hearings Board.
