ANZ BANK: Obtains Favorable Ruling in Late Fees Class Action
------------------------------------------------------------
LawFuel reports that the Australian High Court has upheld a
Federal Court decision in favor of the ANZ bank fees class action,
which is a class action also being pursued in New Zealand.

The decision on July 27 saw the court rule that the $35 "late
payment fees" are legal, following an action pursued by law firm
Maurice Blackburn in Australia which was claiming over $50 million
for upset customers of the bank.

The bank customers accused the banks that the $35 charge for late
credit card payments was excessive given that the evident cost of
the fee ranges from 50 cents to a few dollars only.

IBT reported that Maurice Blackburn started the class action, the
biggest in Australia, against ANZ Bank in 2010.  The fees have
been collected by the banks since the 1990s.

It was the High Court's full bench that published its decision on
the long-running case that initially involved ANZ Bank on
complaint of about 50,000 customers that late fees on mortgages,
business loans and credit cards were excessive, reports The New
Daily.  A Federal Court ruled in 2014 that ANZ's late fees policy
was "extravagant, exorbitant and unconscionable."

But the Federal Court's full bench reversed the decision in 2015,
saying the bank was justified in collecting the $35 late payment
fee.  The law firm appealed the verdict.  Had ANZ lost the case,
over 185,000 customers of other Australian banks, including
Commonwealth Bank, Westpac.  Bank SA, Bankwest and American
Express -- which charged late fees higher than ANZ -- faced huge
compensation bills.

BANCORPSOUTH BANK: Settles Overdraft Fee Class Action for $24MM
---------------------------------------------------------------
Celia Ampel, writing for Daily Business Review, reports that of
the more than 30 banks South Florida lawyers sued for charging
improper overdraft fees, BancorpSouth Bank came closest to a
trial.

Plaintiffs' counsel spent six years litigating the issue of
whether the Tupelo, Mississippi-based bank had breached contracts
with customers by putting checking account charges in high-to-low
order, rather than keeping them chronological, thereby collecting
more overdraft fees.

All that was left to do was set a trial date, but first, U.S.
Magistrate Judge Gary Jones in Gainesville sent the parties to
mediation one last time.

"It forced both sides to take a very hard, careful, close look at
their respective positions and to assess the strengths and
weaknesses of our respective positions to find the right balance
between total defeat or total victory," said plaintiffs class
counsel Bobby Gilbert -- gilbert@kolawyers.com -- of Kopelowitz
Ostrow Ferguson Weiselberg Gilbert in Coral Gables.

The bank agreed to settle for $24 million, about 57 percent of the
maximum damages the class could have recovered at trial. That's a
higher percentage than all but one of the settlements the
plaintiffs lawyers have obtained so far in the cases that came out
of overdraft fee multidistrict litigation consolidated in the
Southern District of Florida.

Judge Jones gave final approval to the settlement July 15 after no
class members raised objections.  He awarded class counsel $8.4
million in attorney fees, praising the lawyers who "undertook an
incredibly risky and undesirable case and, through their
diligence, perseverance, and skill, achieved an outstanding result
for the settlement class."

The case was indeed risky, Mr. Gilbert said.  The class included
more than 190,000 bank customers in eight Southern states.
Varying laws among the states meant a jury might find any number
of class members should not prevail on their claims, he said.

"Even if the court or jury found that we were entitled to prevail,
the jury might not have been sympathetic to the claims of people
who overdrew their accounts on a frequent basis," he said.

There was also the possibility that an appellate court would reach
a different conclusion than previous judges and reverse a judgment
that class counsel worked for years to achieve,
Mr. Gilbert said.

The reality was that going to trial could mean a defense win,
Mr. Gilbert's Fort Lauderdale-based colleague Jeff Ostrow --
ostrow@kolawyers.com -- said.

"Their main argument was that their contract allows them to do the
very conduct that we claimed was unlawful . . . The jury could
have said, 'Yeah, they ought to be allowed to do what they did,'"
Mr. Ostrow said.

Lead defense lawyer Eric Taylor of Hunton & Williams in Atlanta
did not respond to a request for comment.

The settlement negotiated in mediation with Jonathan Marks of
Marks ADR in Bethesda, Maryland, allows for class members to be
paid directly without submitting a claim.  Those who are still
BancorpSouth Bank customers will receive their piece of the
settlement via direct deposit, while those who aren't will receive
a check at their last known address.

Mr. Gilbert said the direct payment system is unusual in the class
action world, and it's the "gold standard" class counsel has been
aiming to set with the 21 settlements, totaling $1.2 billion,
reached in the multidistrict litigation over overdraft fees.

BEALL'S INC: Cert. of Area Managers Class Sought in "Maar" Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiffs Eric Maar and Lindiane Wess, and Opt-in Plaintiffs Jean
Saltmarsh and Madia Roberson move the Court for conditional
certification and notice pursuant to Section 16(b) of the Fair
Labor Standards Act in the lawsuit captioned ERIC MAAR and
LINDIANE WESS, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated v. BEALL'S, INC., Case No. 2:16-cv-14121-DMM (S.D. Fla.).

In their Motion, the Plaintiffs argue that they have met their
"lenient burden" for notice in this archetypal retail FLSA
misclassification case, thus, the Court should issue notice to all
current and former Area Managers ("AMs"), who worked for Beall's,
Inc., at its locations, within the state of Florida.

The Plaintiffs also ask the Court to require Beall's to produce in
an electronic or computer-readable format the full name,
address(es), and e-mail address(es), telephone numbers and social
security numbers for each of the class members, and to authorize
sending of Notice, with a form of Consent to Join.

BMW OF NORTH AMERICA: Mini Cooper Settlement Gets Final Court OK
----------------------------------------------------------------
Tim Darragh, writing for NJ.com, reports that a federal judge gave
final approval to a nationwide class action settlement for owners
of Mini Coopers that have defects causing premature engine
failure.

U.S. District Judge William Walls on July 26 signed off on the
settlement, which will cost defendants BMW of North America, based
in Woodcliff Lake, and Bayerische Motorenwerk Aktiengesellschaft
of Germany up to $30 million.

According to court records, the cars covered by the settlement are
second-generation Mini Coopers with N14 engines.  They include the
Mini Cooper R56 hardtop, 2007-2009 model years; Mini Cooper R55
Clubman, 2008-2009 model years; and the Mini Cooper R57
convertible, 2009-2010 model years, the settlement says.

Plaintiffs in the case alleged that a timing chain tensioner in
the engine was defective, causing replacement of that part or even
the entire engine, it says.

"It's a real problem that these folks have experienced," said
attorney William Pinilis -- wpinilis@consumerfraudlawyer.com -- of
Pinilis Halpern of Morristown, who represented several of the
plaintiffs. "Some of them have suffered catastrophic engine
failure."

Mr. Pinilis said the failure of the tensioner would cause the
vehicle to "conk out," adding that he did not know of anyone
injured because of it.

He called the settlement "an excellent result."

A lawyer for BMW did not immediately respond to a request for
comment.

Owners or lessees will qualify for a warranty extension for the
timing chain tensioner and timing chain; full reimbursement for
repairs or replacement of the tensioner and the timing chains if
done at authorized Mini Cooper dealers and up to $120 for
tensioners and $850 for chains repaired at independent service
centers; reimbursement of up to $4,500 for out-of-pocket expenses
to repair or replace the engine; and up to $2,250 if owners sold
the vehicle at a loss due to a damaged or failed engine caused by
the parts failure.

Individuals who believe they are covered by the settlement should
have filed a claim form in most states by now, the settlement
says.  For more information, go to
www.timingchaintensionersettlement.com to learn more about the
settlement.

The settlement says a claims administrator identified 80,224
vehicles in the class.

CALIFORNIA: Bid for Summary Judgment in "O'Keefe" Partly Granted
----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned TIMOTHY O'KEEFE, Plaintiff, v. JERRY BROWN,
et al., Defendants, No. 2:11-cv-2659 KJM KJN P (E.D. Cal.), Judge
Kendall J. Newman recommended that the defendants' motion for
summary judgement be granted in part and denied in part.

The plaintiff, Timothy O'Keefe, is a state prisoner, proceeding
without counsel, with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C.
section 1983.  O'Keefe alleged that the defendants failed to
provide him with adequate mental health care for paraphilia,
exhibitionism and voyeurism, in violation of the Eighth Amendment.
O'Keefe alleged that he has not been treated for these conditions
at any California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation
(CDCR) institution in which he has ever been incarcerated.  In
other words, the gravamen of the action is O'Keefe's claim that
CDCR fails to provide treatment for these conditions.  O'Keefe
requested injunctive relief in the form of an order directing the
defendants to provide him with treatment for these conditions in a
safe and therapeutic environment.  O'Keefe also sought money
damages.

The defendants are Howlin, Belavich, Sirkin, Wynn, Silva and
Spearman.  At the time O'Keefe filed the fifth amended complaint,
defendant Belavich was the Deputy Director of the CDCR Statewide
Mental Health Program.  The other defendants are employed at the
Correctional Training Facility (CTF), where O'Keefe was
incarcerated when he filed the fifth amended complaint.  O'Keefe
is still incarcerated at CTF.

Judge Newman recommended that the defendants' summary judgment
motion be granted but for the O'Keefe's claim for injunctive
relief against the defendants Sirkin, Howlin and the Deputy
Director of the CDCR Statewide Mental Health Program.

CAYAN LLC: Asks Court to Stay "Junk" Fax Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------
Jessica Karmasek, writing for Legal Newsline, reports that the
defendant in a class action lawsuit alleging it sent a single
"junk" fax to a New Jersey-based chiropractic center, in violation
of federal law, again is asking a Massachusetts federal court to
stay and have a federal appellate court review the case.

Cayan LLC d/b/a Capital Bankcard filed its renewed motion for
certification of an interlocutory appeal and stay of proceedings
with the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts
June 15.

The company argues that "cutting-edge" questions remain following
the U.S. Supreme Court's opinion in Campbell-Ewald Co. v. Gomez.

In January, the nation's highest court said an unaccepted offer of
complete relief to a named plaintiff in a class action lawsuit
does not moot the plaintiff's claim.

Cayan contends there is a "substantial difference of opinion" on
the application of the "inherently transitory" exception to
mootness in a class action context.

"Defendants believe that at least nine judges, including five
Justices of the Supreme Court, would have ruled differently in
this case given their formulations and application of relevant
mootness exceptions," the company wrote in its June 20 memorandum,
filed in support of its motion.

"Further, there is no clear authority addressing the precise
scenario here where the named plaintiff in a Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 23
class action no longer has a live claim and the class has been
offered injunctive relief that 'has contempt bite to it.'"

Cayan argues that both parties, including plaintiff South Orange
Chiropractic Center LLC, would "benefit greatly" from some "much-
needed clarity" provided by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the
First Circuit and possibly the Supreme Court.

A stay also is necessary, the company argues, because the parties
should not have to engage in "expensive class and merits
discovery" given the threshold jurisdictional issues presented.

"Nor is there any prejudice to Plaintiff in staying this case to
allow for an interlocutory appeal," Cayan added in its 19-page
memorandum.

The Massachusetts federal court, in an April order, considered two
legal questions left unresolved by the Supreme Court.

First, whether the plaintiff's individual claims were mooted by
Cayan's tender of complete relief. The federal court ruled that
South Orange no longer had a live claim.

The second, "harder issue" was whether the class claims remained
justiciable where the defendant offered class-wide injunctive
relief and only class-wide statutory damages remained.

On this question, the federal court held that even though South
Orange's individual claims have become moot, the class action may
proceed as a case or controversy under Article III as its "request
for class-wide statutory damages falls within the 'inherently
transitory' exception discussed by the First Circuit in Cruz v.
Farquharson because the class issues will likely evade review."

Cayan wants appellate review of the second, "harder" question.

In its April order, the federal court recognized that an
interlocutory appeal and a stay may make sense, and invited the
parties to brief the issue of whether such an appeal would be
appropriate.

Cayan subsequently moved for an order certifying the court's order
for interlocutory appeal to resolve the following question:

"Does the 'inherently transitory' exception to mootness apply to a
request for monetary damages for absent class members where the
plaintiff's individual claim is moot and injunctive relief has
been offered to the class?"

The federal court agreed that the question "of whether a class
action remains justiciable after a defendant's attempt to 'pick
off' the named plaintiff" is a controlling question of law, the
resolution of which would materially advance the ultimate
termination of the litigation.

But finding no clear split in authority on whether a putative
class action is mooted following a tender of complete relief to
the named plaintiff, the court, in a separate May order,
determined that interlocutory appeal was not warranted.

The court invited Cayan to renew its motion to present a split in
the case law demonstrating a basis for differing opinions.

The plaintiff, South Orange, argues in its June 29 opposition to
Cayan's renewed motion that the defendant is merely seeking to
"take a proverbial 'second bite at the apple'" without offering
the federal court any justification for doing so other than the
company's "disagreement" with the court's decision.

"Defendant does not provide a proper basis for a motion for
reconsideration, nor does Defendant cite a single case decided
since this Court's prior resolution of this issue," South Orange
wrote.

South Orange filed the putative class action in August 2015,
alleging that Cayan sent it one fax advertisement in violation of
the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

The TCPA restricts telephone solicitations, i.e. telemarketing,
and the use of automated telephone equipment.

In particular, the law limits the use of automatic dialing
systems, artificial or prerecorded voice messages, SMS text
messages and fax machines. It also specifies several technical
requirements for fax machines, autodialers and voice messaging
systems -- principally with provisions requiring identification
and contact information of the entity using the device to be
contained in the message.

Generally, the act makes it unlawful "to initiate any telephone
call to any residential telephone line using an artificial or
prerecorded voice to deliver a message without the prior express
consent of the called party" except in emergencies or in
circumstances exempted by the Federal Communications Commission.

The law permits any "person or entity" to bring an action to
enjoin violations of the statute and/or recover actual damages or
statutory damages ranging from $500 to $1,500 per violation.

In December 2015, Cayan served South Orange an offer of judgment
under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 68, as well as a settlement
offer.

In particular, Cayan offered: (1) to have judgment entered against
it, (2) to stipulate to the injunctive relief the plaintiff
requested in its prayer for relief, (3) to pay for any costs that
are recoverable in this case, (4) to preserve evidence, as
requested in the complaint and (5) to pay the plaintiff more than
the $1,500 maximum statutory damages available under the TCPA for
the single fax at issue.

More specifically, Cayan offered South Orange $7,500, plus
recoverable costs, which was delivered in the form of a bank
check.

Despite an offer worth multiples of the maximum statutory damages
the plaintiff could recover, South Orange rejected it.

In January, Cayan moved to dismiss the case for lack of subject
matter jurisdiction based on the tender of complete relief.

Before South Orange responded to the defendant's motion to
dismiss, the Supreme Court decided Gomez.

Soon after the high court's decision, Cayan requested that it be
allowed to deposit $7,500 with the Massachusetts federal court if
the $7,500 tender in the form of a bank check delivered to the
plaintiff was deemed insufficient.

Then, after hearing argument on Cayan's motion to dismiss in
February, the federal court issued its order denying the motion on
April 12.

While it acknowledged that the plaintiff "no longer has the
requisite 'live claim'" because Cayan offered to deposit a check
with the court and satisfy all of South Orange's individual
claims, the court said the class action may proceed.

There's no doubt that the federal court is aware of the case's
significance in light of Gomez.

At oral argument on the motion to dismiss and in its order denying
the motion, it recognized that "while one might think of this as a
case about one little fax, it's actually a very important case in
the area of class action litigation more generally."

The court also noted, at the start of oral arguments, that the
parties were "carving new ground."

As of July 28, Judge Patti B. Saris, who is overseeing the case,
had not ruled on Cayan's renewed motion.

CREDIT MANAGEMENT: "Powers" Settlement Deal Has Initial OK
----------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned LAURA POWERS, on behalf of herself and all
others similarly situated; NICHOLE PALMER; and JASON PALMER;
Plaintiffs, v. CREDIT MANAGEMENT SERVICES, INC.; DANA K. FRIES;
JESSICA L. V. PISKORSKI; BRADY W. KEITH; MICHAEL J. MORLEDGE; and
TESSA HERMANSON; Defendants, No. 8:11CV436 (D. Neb.), Judge Robert
F. Rossiter, Jr. granted the plaintiffs' unopposed motion for
class certification and for preliminary approval of class action
settlement.

The case seeks damages and injunctive relief under the Fair Debt
Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Nebraska Consumer
Protection Act.  The plaintiffs alleged that the defendants
violated the FDCPA and NCPA by filing and serving certain
complaints and discovery requests on consumers in Nebraska.

The proposed class settlement agreement provides that the
defendants pay into the settlement fund a total of $198,000 as
total settlement amount pursuant to the FDCPA and NCPA, to be
distributed equally to the class members who submitted a timely
and proper claim form and, if necessary, the cy pres recipients.

The class settlement agreement further provides that the
plaintiffs will ask the court for an award of statutory damages
and representative fees for the class representatives in the
amount of $7,000.00 for each representative, and the defendants
agree not to oppose such a request.  Defendant CMS also agrees to
pay the plaintiffs' counsels' costs, litigation expenses, and
reasonable attorney fees in such amount that the court may
approve, up to $315,000, in addition to and separate from any
amounts to be paid to the class.

DHB INDUSTRIES: 2nd Cir. Affirms Dismissal of "Cohen" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals, Second Circuit, affirmed an
order dismissing the Appellant's entitlement to fees, in the case,
D. DAVID COHEN, Intervenor-Appellant, THOMAS HUSTON, derivatively
on behalf of DHB Industries, Inc., BRIAN ABRAMS, ALVIN VIRAY,
Class Action Plaintiffs, Plaintiffs, v. DHB INDUSTRIES, INC.,
nominal defendant, a Delaware Corporation, et al., Defendants, No.
15-2940 (2nd Cir.).

The Second Circuit held that the District Court for the Eastern
District of New York did not abuse its discretion in concluding
that Cohen's opportunity for a fee hearing under Second Circuit
precedent in the bankruptcy court -- a hearing he ultimately
received and in which he prevailed -- sufficiently obviated any
prejudice resulting from dismissal. The case considered that all
of Cohen's arguments were untenable.

DNC: Sanders Supporters Oppose Perkins Coie as Defense Counsel
--------------------------------------------------------------
Chriss w. Street, writing for Breitbart, reports that the
WikiLeaks release of hacked emails appears to show that the huge
Perkins Coie law firm, while representing both the Democratic
National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign, provided
strategic advice to hurt Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign.
A federal class action titled Widling v. DNC was filed on June 28
in the U.S. Court for the Southern District of Florida, before the
latest WikiLeaks.  The plaintiffs claim the DNC "actively
concealed its bias" from its donors and supporters backing
Bernie Sanders.  They also claim that the recent hacked emails
provide more evidence that the Democratic National Committee was
coordinating with Hillary Clinton from the start of the
presidential nomination process.

The plaintiff's asserted causes of action against the Democratic
National Committee, and former Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz
include 1) Fraud; 2) Negligent Misrepresentation; 3) Unlawful
trade practices; 4) Unjust Enrichment; 5) Breach of Fiduciary
Duty; and 6) Negligence.

The class action suit not only demands reimbursement to of the
$228,556,686 Bernie Sanders and his supporters raised, but also
demands disgorgement of all DNC contributions and reimbursement of
the $128,327,060 in DNC contributions.

The WikiLeaks July 22 release of 19,252 DNC emails and July 27
release of 29 audio recordings reveal that the Perkins Coie law
firm, which was defending the DNC and Wasserman Schultz, also was
giving legal advice to the Hillary Clinton campaign.

When the Bernie Sanders campaign was accusing Hillary Clinton of
"laundering" money through her Clinton Victory Fund, Perkins Coie
Partner Marc Elias, who also served as the Clinton campaign's
general counsel, emailed to DNC staff and advised:

"My suggestion is that the DNC put out a statement saying that the
accusations the Sanders campaign are not true.  The fact that CNN
notes that you aren't getting between the two campaigns is the
problem.  Here, Sanders is attacking the DNC and its current
practice, its past practice with the POTUS and with Sec Kerry.
Just as the RNC pushes back directly on Trump over 'rigged
system', the DNC should push back DIRECTLY at Sanders and say that
what he is saying is false and harmful the Democratic party.
[emphasis added"

According to class action attorney Jared Beck of Beck & Lee, in a
video posted online: "What we have here is evidence from the
WikiLeaks database that the same attorneys that are appearing in
our case and representing the DNC in the Southern District of
Florida were previously attorneys for the Clinton campaign or they
were providing advice to the DNC that was adverse to Bernie
Sanders."

That may not be an illegal action by Perkins Coie, but it could
make the law firm a "fact witness" in the lawsuit.  It may also
have a conflict and could be deposed or disciplined.

Attorneys for Bernie Sanders supporters contend that federal court
rules bar Perkins Coie lawyers from representing the DNC as
defense counsel in this case.  Beck and Lee state that Perkins
Coie attorneys may become "potential material witnesses" or
"defendants" in the case and should be disqualified.  Jared Beck
intends to file such a motion for disqualification in the Court as
soon as possible.

Perkins Coie LLC is a very prestigious firm, with over 1,000
attorneys and 19 offices in the U.S. and Asia.  The firm is rated
1) the 17th largest U.S. law firm by attorney headcount; 2) the
number 42 highest-grossing U.S. law firm by The American Lawyer;
3) one of the Best Law Firms for Women; 4) and one of the "100
Best Companies to Work For" for 14 consecutive years by FORTUNE
magazine.  It also received a top rating of 100 percent in the
Corporate Equality Index by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation,
2009 -- 2016.

FACEBOOK INC: Agrees to Refund Minors' In-App Purchases
-------------------------------------------------------
The Associated Press reports that court documents show Facebook
has agreed to allow users to request refunds of in-app purchases
made by minors as part of a settlement of a class-action lawsuit.

The lawsuit was brought in 2012 by two children and their parents.
It claimed the children racked up hundreds of dollars in purchases
of Facebook Credits, a since-discontinued currency used by the
site.

Under the settlement approved by a California federal court in
May, Facebook agreed to add an option for requesting an in-app
purchase refund on the grounds that it was made by a minor.  It
also agrees to have a dedicated team to handle such requests.

Menlo Park, California-based Facebook hasn't responded to a
request for comment.

FLOYD, IN: Court Partly Reconsiders Class Cert. in "Gentry"
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned TABITHA GENTRY, VINCENT MINTON, MICHAEL
HERRON, ADAM WALKER, ANNA CHASTAIN, and JANELLE SOUTH, Plaintiffs,
v. FLOYD COUNTY, INDIANA, DARRELL MILLS, TIFFANY FRANS, OFFICER
ATHERTON, RYAN RAINEY, and JOHN/JANE DOE, Defendants, No. 4:14-cv-
00054-RLY-TAB (S.D. Ind.), Judge Richard L. Young granted in part
and denied, in part, the defendants' motion for reconsideration of
the court's entry on the plaintiffs' motion to certify class.

In the case, the plaintiffs challenged the Floyd County Sheriff's
Department policy entitled "Combative Subjects Practices."  On
February 16, 2016, the court granted the plaintiffs' Motion to
Certify Class.  The defendants moved the court to reconsider its
ruling and deny the plaintiffs' motion because, they argue, the
plaintiffs do not meet the requirements of Fed. R. Civ. P. 23(a)
or (b).

Judge Young found that the court did not err with respect to the
certification of the main class, but did err with respect to
certification of the subclass.

KEISER UNIVERSITY: Faces TCPA Class Action Over Autodialer
----------------------------------------------------------
Antonia Noori Farzan, writing for Broward Palm Beach New Times,
reports that a new class-action lawsuit contends Fort Lauderdale-
based Keiser University is violating the federal Telephone
Consumer Protection Act by using automated dialing systems to call
mobile numbers registered with the National Do Not Call Registry
as many as three times per day.

According to the complaint filed by the Tallahassee firm of
Dudley, Sellers, Healy & Heath, Keiser employs more than 350
recruiters as "admissions counselors" who sit in windowless
cubicles making up to 100 phone calls a day, trying to persuade
prospective students to take out thousands of dollars in loans.

Anonymous online reviews on websites like Glassdoor.com and
Indeed.com back up these claims.  One former admissions counselor
writes, "You are working for a deceitful system that expects you
to make sales out of people's desire to go back to school by
sometimes humiliating them and calling them out on their lack of
commitment or financial misgivings.  You're not a counselor, but a
glorified sales rep that is expected to make over a hundred calls
a day from your cubicle. [To] maintain numbers and increase sales
. . . is required by this organization for people to keep their
jobs."

Tactics like these are commonly used by for-profit colleges that
offer dubious credentials in exchange for mountains of debt, but
Keiser University is actually a nonprofit -- at least on paper.

As Michael Vasquez at the Miami Herald has documented, Keiser
switched to nonprofit status in 2011, right after the Obama
administration threatened to cut off for-profit colleges from
receiving federal funding.  At the time, the school was also being
investigated by the Florida attorney general's office for
deceptive recruitment practices. (Keiser never admitted wrongdoing
but worked out a settlement.)

But even as a nonprofit, Keiser University is still incredibly
lucrative for founder and president Arthur Keiser, who earns
$855,842 per year, more than the president of Harvard.  He also
receives payments and interest on the $321 million loan that he
made to the nonprofit so it could buy Keiser University from him.
And if that weren't enough, the school pays close to $14.6 million
a year to rent buildings from companies Keiser has a stake in.

The good news: If you've ever gotten an unwanted telemarketing
call from Keiser University, you may stand to make some money --
if the class-action lawsuit succeeds.

A spokesman for Keiser declined to comment on the suit, saying,
"Keiser University has not been served in this matter.  It would
be inappropriate to comment or speculate on any potentially
pending litigation.  As it has been for the past 40 years, Keiser
University's educational commitment to our students, alumni,
employees, and communities we serve throughout Florida and
internationally will always be our top priority."

        entities and natural persons who purchased the MicroCool
        Gowns from February 12, 2012 up to and including
        January 11, 2015, for the resolution of the specific
        issue of whether Defendants misrepresented during the
        time period February 12, 2012 up to and including
        January 11, 2015 the liquid barrier claims relating to
        the MicroCool Gowns (e.g. whether the gowns met the AAMI

        marketing materials and/or whether Defendants concealed
        material facts relating thereto.

The class period of the Plaintiffs' class claims is February 12,
2012, up to and including January 11, 2015.

LEBO AUTOMOTIVE: Ex-Employee Can Pursue Race Discrimination Case
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Supreme Court of California handed down its decision on
July 28 in Sandquist v. Lebo Automotive, Inc., a long-running
individual and class race discrimination matter in which Sanford
Heisler, LLP and Public Justice represent plaintiff
Timothy Sandquist.

"[The] decision affirms that employers cannot have it both ways
with their arbitration agreements.  If they are going to require
their employees to resolve disputes with an arbitrator, they also
need to be subjected to an arbitrator's interpretation of the
arbitration agreement," said Felicia Medina --
fmedina@sanfordheisler.com -- leader of Sandquist's legal team and
Managing Partner of Sanford Heisler's San Francisco office.  "This
outcome means that after years of protracted litigation over this
legal question, we can now finally begin to address Mr.
Sandquist's original claims and seek redress."

A former sales manager and long-time employee of John Elway's
Manhattan Beach Toyota, Mr. Sandquist, filed an individual and
class action on behalf of himself and all other current and former
employees of color at the dealership four years ago.  A high-
performing and hardworking African American man, he joined
Manhattan Beach Toyota as a sales representative in 2000, working
his way up to sales manager in early 2008.  In the two years
Mr. Sandquist served as General Sales Manager of the dealership,
without either the official title or the pay of that leadership
position, the Dealership had its most successful years, attaining
the Toyota President's Award.

Despite Mr. Sandquist's success at and loyalty to the dealership,
he was routinely passed over for promotions, denied salary
increases, and systematically harassed on the basis of his race.
After persevering for four years against the ongoing
discrimination and hostile work environment that permeated the
former Denver Bronco quarterback's dealership, he was forced to
resign in 2011.

In January 2012, Mr. Sandquist filed individual and class claims
for pay and promotion race discrimination against Lebo Automotive,
doing business as John Elway's Manhattan Beach Toyota, John Elway,
Mitchell D. Pierce, Jerry L. Williams, and Darrell Sperber.

However, before the Los Angeles Superior Court could address
Mr. Sandquist's employment claims, the litigation became focused
on the company's arbitration agreement.  When the trial court held
that the arbitration agreement compelled individual arbitration,
Sanford Heisler, LLP successfully appealed the decision in the
Second District; however, the defendants subsequently appealed the
Second District Court's decision to the state's highest court.

"[The] decision is an important one for California workers subject
to arbitration agreements by their employers," said Paul Bland of
Public Justice, who argued the case before the state supreme
court.  "Mr. Elway's dealership tried to use its arbitration
clause to block employees from banding together and to conceal
just how pervasive the racist culture at Lebo Automotive had
become.  The Court's decision sends a clear message that employees
and other groups who have been wronged do not waive their right to
fight that injustice together simply because of a carefully worded
fine print clause."

LOBLAW: Verifying Accuracy of Coin-Counting Kiosks
--------------------------------------------------
Alexandra Posadzki, writing for The Canadian Press, reports that
Canada's largest grocery chain says it's trying to verify the
accuracy of the coin-counting kiosks in its stores after TD Bank
got rid of similar machines from its branches over allegations
that they've been nickel-and-diming customers.

"We are aware of the concerns recently raised about coin-counting
machines," Kevin Groh, the vice-president of corporate affairs and
communication for Loblaw, said in an email.

"We have been working with Coinstar to confirm the accuracy of the
coin-counting machines located in our stores and have no current
plans to remove the machines.  Should customers have a concern
with any of the coin-counting machines in one of our stores,
please contact our customer service team to let us know."

The coin-counting machines located in Loblaw stores are owned and
operated by U.S.-based Coinstar, the same company that owned and
operated the machines that TD Bank pulled from its Canadian
branches in May.

In June, a class-action lawsuit was filed against TD on behalf of
everyone who used the coin-counting machines at the bank's
branches between Jan. 1, 2013, and May 25, 2016.

Grocery store chain Metro also has Coinstar machines in its
stores.  A spokeswoman said the company has not received any
complaints about the machines and therefore has no plans to remove
them.

But Metro will continue to monitor the machines to "ensure our
customers' satisfaction," Genevieve Gregoire said in an email.

The lead plaintiff in the class-action lawsuit is Lisa Ram, a
woman from Kitchener, Ont., who says she counted her coins before
depositing them in a machine at a TD Bank in the city.

Ms. Ram says she had a total of $854.25, but was shortchanged by
$159.50.  She alleges that she complained to the bank but they
failed to do anything.

A statement of claim filed by Toronto-based law firm Sotos LLP
alleges that the bank knew about accuracy issues with its machines
south of the border, but still proceeded with a national rollout
across Canada in January 2013.

The allegations have not been proven in court.

In order to proceed as a class-action, the suit requires
certification from the Ontario Superior Court.

TD Bank declined a request for comment, saying it could not
comment on the pending litigation.

Coinstar said in an email that it aims to provide customers with
"convenient, reliable and accurate" service and that its machines
have processed more than one billion transactions over the last 25
years.

Any customer who has questions or concerns should contact customer
service staff, the company added.

MAJOR LEAGUE: Wins Bid to Decertify Class of Minor League Players
-----------------------------------------------------------------
J. William Manuel, Esq. -- wmanuel@bradley.com -- of Bradley Arant
Boult Cummings LLP, in an article for JDSupra, reports that in a
100+ page opinion, federal Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero of the
Northern District of California refused to grant the Plaintiffs'
motion to certify a class of minor league baseball players and
instead granted the baseball clubs' motion to de-certify.  Minor
league players across the country have filed numerous suits
claiming they are paid only during the actual championship playing
season (what some would call the regular schedule of games in the
summer and fall), and were not adequately compensated for other
activities like spring training, instructional leagues, winter
workouts or other mandatory work performed outside the
championship season.

The California Plaintiffs claimed that a class was proper because
Major League Baseball and its franchises had uniform contracts and
policies that applied to everyone.  The Plaintiffs' motion
attempted to consolidate claims filed in California, Florida,
Arizona, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and
Oregon.

The baseball clubs opposed the motion by arguing that differences
among the players' circumstances precluded them from meeting the
class certification requirements.  The Court agreed.  The opinion
notes that the minor league players engaged in a wide variety of
activities during the off-season to stay in top playing condition
and there is not a good way to determine if and where the workouts
occurred and whether the clubs monitored those activities.

The very nature of those activities also varied greatly from
player to player and it was too difficult to determine if each
activity constituted compensable "work" under the statute.  The
Court ultimately determined that these wide variations in the type
of off-season workouts was fatal to the players' certification
efforts.  Specifically, the Court found "that the collective
members are not similarly situated and that adjudicating the FLSA
on a collective basis will be unmanageable."  It is important to
note that this does not end the suit; it simply means that it will
have to proceed as individual actions and not as a class.

While this opinion may be interesting to those of us that love
America's Pastime, it also has implications for other employers.
Some argue that recent court decisions indicate a trend toward
more certifications of class actions.  This opinion provides a
very good (and long) roadmap as to what is required for that to
happen.  The wide variation among the plaintiffs' activities are
not unique to baseball.  Many industries have workers that share a
job title, but their day-to-day work is different from location to
location.  Documentation of those variations may be ample
ammunition to avoid a collective action in the future -- at least
under the FLSA.

MCDONALD'S CORP: Overtime Wage Case Obtains Class Action Status
---------------------------------------------------------------
Heidi Turner, writing for Lawyers and Settlements, reports that a
California overtime lawsuit filed against McDonald's has been
granted federal class action status.  Although McDonald's tried to
argue that it was not responsible for ensuring the pay of
employees at its franchise restaurants, the judge agreed to grant
class action status to the up to 500 employees who filed
complaints against McDonald's in northern California.

According to The New York Times, the lawsuit was filed in 2014. In
it, employees alleged that five McDonald's restaurants, all of
which were owned by the same franchisee, broke wage and hour laws,
including failing to pay overtime, failure to pay minimum wage,
and reducing pay by falsely recording information on timecards.

The lawsuit was filed against both the franchisee and McDonald's
corporation.  The franchisee has reportedly already settled for
around $700,000, leaving McDonald's to cover whatever the courts
find remains owing.

McDonald's argued it could not be held responsible for how its
franchisees manage pay, but the lawsuit alleged McDonald's own
overtime-tracking software was preprogrammed to reduce employee
overtime pay in certain situations.  For example, the software was
designed to assign all hours worked to the date a shift started,
regardless of whether the hours occurred on that date. Employees
that worked overnight and into early hours had the shift count
toward the date the shift started, rather than having the hours on
the actual date worked.  In such circumstances, the employee could
work more than eight hours within 24 hours, but because the
software counted the shifts as occurring on two days, overtime pay
was not given.

The judge noted in his ruling that employees were required to wear
McDonald's uniforms, packaged food in McDonald's boxes, received
information on their shifts on documentation marked with
McDonald's logos, and often applied for their jobs through the
McDonald's website.

"Significantly, on the other side of the ledger, McDonald's has
submitted no evidence at all indicating that any named plaintiff
or putative class member did not believe that McDonald's was their
employer or that they were unjustified or unreasonable in relying
on that belief," Judge James Donato wrote.

Although parts of the motion for class action were dismissed, the
allegations of miscalculated wages claims, overtime claims, and
maintenance-of-uniform claims were granted class action status.

The lawsuit is Ochoa, et al. v. McDonald's Corp., at al. case
number 3:14-cv-02098 in the US District Court, Northern District
of California.


MICHIGAN: Still Paying Off $100MM Sexual Abuse Settlement
---------------------------------------------------------
Lansing State Journal's Justin A. Hinkley, citing Michigan Senate
Fiscal Agency, reports that Michigan taxpayers paid significantly
less last year to settle lawsuits against their state government
than they did in recent years, but more than they typically have
over the last decade.

In the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2015, state departments
paid about $41.8 million in lawsuit settlements and judgments,
according to a report from the Senate Fiscal Agency posted online
on July 27.

That amount is less than the more than $70 million paid in 2014,
the nearly $86 million paid in 2013 and the more than $76 million
in 2012, when lawsuit payments ballooned from just under $16
million the year before because of lawsuit's over the state's
business taxes.  Payments dipped this year with no big payments to
make on such cases.

But, with the Michigan Department of Corrections still paying off
a $100-million class-action settlement related to sexual abuse
allegations against corrections officers, last year's lawsuit
costs are much higher than the $9.4 million paid in 2006.

Corrections accounted for nearly two-thirds of the state's lawsuit
costs last year, but the department's final payment in that class-
action suit was made Oct. 14, 2015, the report said.

Michigan comes out ahead in the lawsuit game, thanks almost
entirely to more than $200 million coming from Michigan's share of
a 1998 settlement between states and tobacco companies.

But outgoing payments show how the missteps and misdeeds of state
government and its employees can cost taxpayers.

The Michigan State Police, for example, paid nearly $8 million
last year, almost all of it to settle a wrongful-death lawsuit in
which a trooper killed a motorist during a high-speed chase in
2014.

The state has paid nearly $237 million since 1983 in cases
claiming negligent highway maintenance, though only $5,500 was
paid last year in a settlement with a pedestrian who was injured
after falling on a state highway.

The state paid nearly $1.5 million in settlements in six cases in
which state employees alleged discrimination or harassment by
their supervisors.

Sometimes, Michiganders pay for the state's policy choices.

The state Department of Technology, Management & Budget paid $3.5
million in lawsuit costs last year, for example, with the biggest
payment going to the attorneys who won the landmark case at the
U.S. Supreme Court that overturned same-sex marriage bans in
Michigan and elsewhere.

As in that case, lawsuits also can force the state into reforms.

The state paid $310,000 in attorney fees last year, for example,
on a 2008 case that highlighted failures in the state's foster
care system and forced an overhaul.  After the lawsuit, the state
hired more caseworkers, changed the way it provided health care to
foster children and is currently exploring changes to the way it
pays foster care contractors to encourage better outcomes for
kids.

Departments also try to learn from their mistakes and implement
their own reforms.

Corrections Director Heidi Washington, for example, "has
implemented a post-litigation review process that is meant to
identify needed areas of change, areas of risk and changes to
policies and procedures that are needed moving forward," spokesman
Chris Gautz said in an email to the State Journal. "We have begun
the review process meetings and will be implementing changes
associated with the discussions that arise from them."

With the Corrections lawsuit paid off, legal payments in the
current fiscal year could be much less -- depending on what
happens in Flint.

Gov. Rick Snyder and the state face numerous lawsuits after lead
leeched into Flint's drinking water system because the state
failed to add the chemicals needed to prevent corrosion of the
pipes when the city switched to a new water supply.

Gov. Snyder's legal defense already is costing taxpayers about
$6,500 a day before any verdicts or settlements have been reached.

MICROSOFT CORP: Faces Two New Lawsuits Over Windows 10 Upgrade
--------------------------------------------------------------
Ian Paul, writing for PCWorld, reports that Microsoft is facing
two more lawsuits over the company's questionable Windows 10
upgrade tactics.  Both suits are seeking class-action status.

The first suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Florida. It
alleges that Microsoft's Windows 10 upgrade prompts "violated laws
governing unsolicited electronic advertisements," as reported by
The Seattle Times. The suit also says Microsoft's tactics are
against the Federal Trade Commission's rules on deceptive and
unfair practices.

The second suit was filed in June in Haifa, Israel, alleging that
Microsoft installed Windows 10 on users' computers without
consent. Microsoft already paid out a $10,000 award in a previous
U.S. suit over similar circumstances.

Microsoft told the Seattle Times it believes the suits won't
succeed. The Times also reports that Microsoft said Windows 10
upgrades (the Times report called them "updates") are a "choice,
not a requirement."

The story behind the story: That's quite a disingenuous statement
considering that Microsoft violated the known behavior of the
Windows interface to essentially trick people into upgrading.

The "forced upgrade" saga
For a time, clicking the "X" in the upper right corner of the
Windows 10 upgrade prompt window was interpreted as consent to
upgrade to the new operating system. The typical expectation for
all users is that clicking the "X" ends the program, and in fact,
doing so was the only way to reject the free upgrade offer for
most of the pop-ups notification's existence. The same prompt
could upgrade your system to Windows 10 without explicit consent
if you left you computer on for an extended period, as well.
PCWorld received hundreds of reader complaints about "forced"
Windows 10 after Microsoft began using those tactics.

Although Microsoft used aggressive upgrade tactics for several
months, more recent upgrade offers have been significantly dialed
back. In late June Microsoft revamped the upgrade pop-up that
offers Windows 7 and 8.1 users a free bump to Windows 10. The
expected behavior of the "X" returned, and Microsoft offered
clearer options to stop receiving the free upgrade offer
altogether.

Microsoft's free upgrade period for Windows 10 closes July 29.


MIDLAND CREDIT: Certification of Class Sought in "Bentley" Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Curtis Bentley moves the Court to certify the class described in
the amended complaint filed in the lawsuit titled CURTIS BENTLEY,
Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v.
MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT, INC., and MIDLAND FUNDING, LLC, Case
No. 2:16-cv-01041-PP (E.D. Wisc.).  The Plaintiff further asks
that the Court both stay the motion for class certification and to
grant the Plaintiff (and the Defendant) relief from the Local
Rules setting automatic briefing schedules and requiring briefs
and supporting material to be filed with the motion.

Damasco and decisions like it imposed significant burdens on the
Court and on Plaintiff's Counsel, the Plaintiffs assert, citing
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).

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, the
Plaintiff states.  The Plaintiff asserts that the Plaintiff is
obligated to move for class certification to protect the interests
of the putative class.

As the Motion 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 Plaintiff contends.

The Plaintiff also asks to be appointed as class representative
and further asks the Court to appoint Ademi & O'Reilly, LLP as
class counsel.

NAT'L HOCKEY: Sen. Disappointed Over Bettman's Concussion Remarks
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Chris Peters, writing for CBSSports, reports that Senator
Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut expressed his disappointment in
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman's response to a letter he sent
seeking answers on the effects of concussions in hockey.  In his
written response to Sen. Blumenthal, Mr. Bettman continued to deny
a link between concussions and chronic traumatic encephalopathy,
better known as CTE.

Sen. Blumenthal's initial letter was sent to the league in late
June.  In it, he sought answers to multiple direct questions
regarding CTE, concussions, fighting, player safety and other
related topics.  The senator considered Mr. Bettman's previous
public statements on the matter as "dismissive."

"As the premier professional hockey league in the world, the NHL
has an obligation not only to ensure the safety of your players,
but to also engage in a productive dialogue about the safety of
your sport at all levels -- from youth to professional,"
Sen. Blumenthal wrote in his initial letter to Mr. Bettman (via
SI.com).  "Furthermore, given the number of NHL teams who play in
arenas financed in part or in whole by taxpayer funds and the
hundreds of thousands of American children playing hockey,
government oversight into the safety of your sport is appropriate,
and a matter of public health."

Mr. Bettman was asked to respond by July 23, which he did with a
heavily-footnoted 24-page letter to Sen. Blumenthal.

The New York Times obtained and published the letter in full,
putting Mr. Bettman's comments on display.  In the response, the
commissioner continued to deny links between hockey and CTE.  He
also repeatedly blamed the media and lawyers representing former
NHL players in a class-action suit against the league for fear
mongering.

The ongoing lawsuit against the league alleges the NHL failed to
warn players of the short and long-term effects of repeated
concussions and head trauma, failed to adequately care for players
with such injuries, all while promoting the more violent aspects
of the game.  With that still ongoing, Mr. Bettman's response is
not at all surprising and it's really not all that different from
things he's said before. The main difference is that this is a
lengthy response to a sitting U.S. senator than a few soundbites
from various media scrums over the years.
The core quote of Mr. Bettman's response that has reignited the
debate on CTE, was this (via NYT):

"The science regarding CTE, including on the asserted 'link' to
concussions that you reference, remains nascent, particularly with
respect to what causes CTE and whether it can be diagnosed by
specific clinical symptoms.  The relationship between concussion
and the asserted clinical symptoms of CTE remains unknown."

Mr. Bettman cited multiple medical documents including the 2012
"Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport" that multiple doctors
signed onto expressing that there was no scientific proof to
demonstrate a causal link between concussions and CTE pathology.

The commissioner also expressed in his response that the NHL is
different from the NFL.  The importance of drawing that contrast
is tied to NFL executive Jeff Miller saying that there "certainly"
was a link between football and degenerative brain disorders
during a congressional roundtable in March.  That was the first
definitive admission of such a link by the NFL.
In his conclusion, the commissioner also pointed out that longtime
enforcer Todd Ewen, who took his own life last year, was
discovered to not have any instances of CTE.  Mr. Bettman, as he
does throughout the letter, once again blamed the media and
plaintiffs' counsel of fear mongering:

"This, sadly, is the type of tragedy that can result when
plaintiffs' lawyers and their media consultants jump ahead of the
medical community and assert, without reliable scientific support,
that there is a causal link between concussions and CTE.
Certainly, a more measured approach consistent with the medical
community consensus would be a safer, more prudent course."
Mr. Bettman's response did not go line by line in addressing each
of the questions posed, but did provide a fairly comprehensive
picture of where the league stands currently on the main issues
raised by Sen. Blumenthal.

The commissioner's response was not to the senator's satisfaction,
however.  Sen. Blumenthal issued some thoughts on Twitter:

As of now, at least six NHL players have been discovered to have
had CTE.  Meanwhile, many of the plaintiffs involved in the class-
action suit have claimed symptoms consistent with CTE. While it is
true that it has not been scientifically proven that one
necessarily leads to the other, common sense should raise a lot of
red flags, which is essentially what Sen. Blumenthal was getting
at in his initial letter.

On top of that, genuine concern for the well-being of the athletes
being described as "fear mongering" is among the most offensive
things the commissioner has said or written publicly on this
matter.  It also fuels the optics of dismissiveness that inspired
Sen. Blumenthal to prod Mr. Bettman for answers in the first
place.

While the NHL is not going to admit any such link while in the
midst of a contentious legal battle, the commissioner's on-the-
record statements only shows that the research on CTE can't be
advanced fast enough.  There are still so many things we don't
know and while the NHL has made some improvements to its rules to
better protect players, it doesn't look like they're willing to go
the extra mile just yet.

As renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Charles Tator of the Canadian Sports
Concussion Project told the Globe & Mail:

"I think they could be doing more," Dr. Tator said of Mr. Bettman
and the NHL.  "That's for sure. . . .  We need to continue this
research. It's really necessary to do it.  We owe it to the next
generation of players to get this sorted this out.  Another
generation shouldn't go by without this being solved."

NVIDIA: Settles Graphics Card False Advertising Class Action
------------------------------------------------------------
Tamara Burns, writing for Top Class Actions, reports that graphics
card manufacturer Nvidia agreed to a preliminary settlement that
will resolve claims in a group of proposed class action lawsuits
that center around allegations that the company misled consumers
about the performance and storage capabilities of its product.

Nvidia says it will pay each buyer of the graphics card $30 and
will pay an additional $1.3 million in attorneys' fees, according
to settlement documents.

The overall settlement amount was not publicly disclosed within
court papers, however Nvidia agreed to pay all consumers who
purchased the GTX 970 graphics card and indicated there would not
be a cap on the total amount it would pay consumers.

"The settlement is fair and reasonable and falls within the range
of possible approval," attorneys for the proposed Class said in
the filing.  "It is the product of extended arms-length
negotiations between experienced attorneys familiar with the legal
and factual issues of this case and all settlement class members
are treated fairly under the terms of the settlement."

The initial proposed class action lawsuit in a series of lawsuits
against Nvidia was filed in February 2015 and alleged that the
company engaged in false advertising, deceptive business practice,
unlawful is practices and violated California's business law for
unfair business practices.

The initial claim accused Nvidia of having a graphics card that
operated on 3.5 GB but was advertised as operating with a full 4
GB of video access memory, plus another .5 GB that was separated
from the rest of the memory.

Another proposed class action lawsuit in the series was filed the
following month and also alleged similar claims about the gigabyte
amounts and separation, saying the product was falsely advertised
and negligently represented.

The recent settlement with Nvidia includes a total of 15 consumer
class action lawsuits that were consolidated in Northern
California as well is a pending action in San Diego, according to
court documents.

In addition to the size of video access memory and its setup, the
consumers also accused Nvidia of having 64 render output
processors rather than the 56 that were advertised and of having
smaller specialized memory cache than advertised.

The consumers claimed that overall, Nvidia omitted information
that was important for buyers to understand as they made their
purchases, causing potential Class Members to purchase products
with lower functionality and capabilities than what was
advertised.

Nvidia denied all allegations of wrongdoing, and both parties
entered into the settlement and agreed upon the terms, believing
them to be in the best interests of all parties involved.

Nvidia graphics cards cost approximately $350 and the anticipated
$30 payout was calculated to represent a portion of the cost of
the storage and performance capabilities the consumers thought
they were obtaining in the purchase of the product, according to
the proposed settlement.

Instructions on how to file a claim for the Nvidia class action
settlement were not immediately available.  Keep checking

OKLAHOMA: In Forma Pauperis Status Denied in "Williams" Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals, Tenth Circuit, affirmed an
order denying Plaintiff Williams's request for in forma pauperis
status, concluding that Plaintiff had sufficient income to pay the
fee for filing for his complaint, in the case, MITCHELL WILLIAMS,
Plaintiff-Appellant, v. STATE OF OKLAHOMA; PAUL ZIRIAX; STATE OF
SOUTH CAROLINA; ARLENE MAHONEY; STATE OF COLORADO; STATE OF UTAH,
Defendants-Appellees, No. 16-6150 (10th Cir.). The Tenth Circuit
further denied the Plaintiff's motion to proceed ifp on appeal.

The case is a complaint and class action lawsuit against the
states of Oklahoma, South Carolina, Colorado, and Utah, claiming
to have unconstitutionally denied Plaintiff the ability to enter
his name on the ballot as a "write-in candidate" for the office of
President of the United States.

The Tenth Circuit held that the district court did not abuse its
discretion in denying ifp status to Mr. Williams.

PEARLS AUSTRALASIA: Indian Gov't to Back Investors' Class Action
----------------------------------------------------------------
Anthony Klan and Greg Bearup, writing for The Australian, reports
that the Indian government is preparing to back an Australian
class action seeking to sell the Gold Coast Sheraton Mirage resort
and two luxury homes to refund victims of the subcontinent's $10
billion Pearls Ponzi scam.

Queensland barrister Niall Coburn and Shine Lawyers filed a 38-
page statement of claim in the Federal Court in Brisbane on
July 28 on behalf of about 46,000 Indian investors, claiming the
properties were bought without the consent or knowledge of Pearls
investors.

Shine Lawyers partner Alex Moriarty said the firm had been
contacted by India's Lodha committee -- established to deal with
the Pearls collapse -- which was preparing to join the class
action to recover assets bought in Australia with Pearls money.

"We welcome the Indian government's support of our action and look
forward to formalizing arrangements with the Lodha committee in
the near future," Mr. Moriarty told The Australian on July 28.

In 2009, Pearls, led by its founder, the now jailed Nirmal Singh
Bhangoo, created an Australian arm -- Pearls Australasia -- and
bought the Gold Coast Sheraton Mirage Resort for $62 million,
before spending $20m on refurbishments.

Two companies associated with Mr. Bhangoo and his family also
bought a Gold Coast Sanctuary Cove mansion for $4.95m and a home
in Melbourne's Mont Albert for $2.38m, each occupied by one of Mr.
Bhangoo's daughters and their husbands.

"We allege our clients' life savings were put into the Sheraton
luxury resort in Australia where, ironically, the well-heeled
enjoy their leisure time, without their knowledge or consent,"
Mr. Moriarty said.

"We also allege their money was used to purchase mansions in
Melbourne and the Gold Coast so the operator . . . and his family
could live in luxury, off the pain of India's poor."

Alongside Mr. Bhangoo, the founders of Pearls Australasia -- later
renamed MiiGroup -- included Gold Coast property developers Paul
Brinsmead and Peter Madrers.  Both men have said they were unaware
of problems with Pearls when they entered into business with the
company.

Messrs. Madrers and Brinsmead claim they own a 50 per cent stake
in Miiresorts Group 1, the company that owns the Sheraton, and so
have a 50 per cent stake in the proceeds of the sale of the hotel.

That is strongly disputed by the class action and representatives
of Pearls in India, who say the developers own just 0.38 per cent
of the company, in line with documents lodged with the Australian
Securities & Investments Commission.

Messrs. Madrers and Brinsmead have said they are negotiating to
sell the property for $140m to an undisclosed buyer and the sale
is due to occur tomorrow.

The Federal Court in Brisbane ordered that if the resort were to
be sold as planned, the proceeds were to be temporarily placed in
a trust account.

The Australian has been told that there are negotiations to sell
the resort to business interests connected to Chinese-born
businessman Kevin Lui, although the sale remains in question
because of financing problems.


PEOPLES BANK: Langston Seeks Certification of Class Under FLSA
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiff in the lawsuit titled JOHN LANGSTON, on behalf of
himself and others similarly situated v. PEOPLES BANK & TRUST CO.,
Case No. 5:16-cv-00745-HE (W.D. Okla.), moves the Court for an
order granting conditional class certification under Section
216(b) of the Fair Labor Standards Act.  The class consists of:

     All persons who worked as a LOs (or persons with similar job
     duties) for Defendant within three years prior to the filing
     of this Complaint (hereafter the "FLSA Collective").

Mr. Langston also asks the Court to direct the Defendant to
provide a list of names of these persons within 14 days of the
Court's order for these persons along with their last known home
addresses, phone numbers, last four digits of their social
security number, and email addresses, all in a workable electronic
format for mailing purposes.  He further asks for approval and
authorization to send the notice of claims and right to opt-in
forms.

POINT AND PAY: Bid for Class Certification in "Cross" Suit Denied
-----------------------------------------------------------------
United States Magistrate Judge Karla R. Spaulding directed the
Clerk of Court to terminate the Plaintiff's motion for class
certification and concurrent request for extension to certify
class in the lawsuit entitled DAVID CROSS v. POINT AND PAY, LLC,
Case No. 6:16-cv-01182-CEM-KRS (M.D. Fla.).

According to the Order, counsel for the Plaintiff concedes that
the Motion appears to be premature and the Motion is likely due to
be denied on the merits because it is not supported by sufficient
evidence.  Hence, Judge Spaulding directed the Clerk of Court to
terminate the Motion without prejudice to reopening it upon
request at a later stage of the Case, if supported by a showing of
good cause.

Counsel for the Plaintiff may file a renewed motion for class
certification within 90 days following the filing of the complaint
in the Case unless the time is extended by the Court, Judge
Spaulding stated.  Additional "placeholder" motions may be denied
on the merits, Judge Spaulding added.

PORTFOLIO RECOVERY: Stefanovic Seeks Certification of Class
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiffs in the lawsuit styled ZARKO STEFANOVIC, CURTIS
BENTLEY, STEPHEN BLOODWORTH and SCOTT STEPHAN, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. PORTFOLIO RECOVERY
ASSOCIATES, LLC, Case No. 2:16-cv-01040-DEJ (E.D. Wisc.), move the
Court to certify the classes described in the complaint, and
further asks that the Court both stay the motion for class
certification and to grant the Plaintiffs (and the Defendant)
relief from the Local Rules setting automatic briefing schedules
and requiring briefs and supporting material to be filed with the
Motion.

Damasco and decisions like it imposed significant burdens on the
Court and on Plaintiff's Counsel, the Plaintiffs assert, citing
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).

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, the
Plaintiffs note.  They contend that they are obligated to move for
class certification to protect the interests of the putative
class.

As the Motion 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 argue.

The Plaintiffs also ask the Court to appoint them as class
representatives and to appoint Ademi & O'Reilly, LLP as class
counsel.

QLOGIC CORP: "Bushansky" Sues Over Proposed Sale to Cavium
----------------------------------------------------------
Stephen Bushansky, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Qlogic Corporation, Jean Hu, John T.
Dickson, Balakrishnan S. Iyer, Christine King, D. Scott Mercer,
Jay A. Rossiter, George D. Wells and William M. Zeitler,
Defendants, Case No. 8:16-cv-01363 (D. Mass., July 22, 2016),
seeks preliminary and permanent relief, injunctive relief,
compensatory damages and rescissory damages, attorneys' fees,
expenses and experts fees and such other and further relief under
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

QLogic will be acquired by Cavium, Inc., for approximately $15.50
per share, comprised of $11.00 per share in cash and 0.098 of a
share of Cavium common stock for each share of QLogic common
stock, through an exchange offer. Said offer required QLogic to
pay a termination fee of $47.8 million if the Company decides to
pursue a competing offer. This locks out any potential post-deal
market offer.

Bushansky is a stockholder of QLogic.

QLogic is a corporation organized and existing under the laws of
Delaware, with its principal offices located at 26650 Aliso Viejo
Parkway, Aliso Viejo, California 92656. It is manufactures high

QUALCOMM INC: Settles Gender Discrimination Action for $19.5MM
--------------------------------------------------------------
HRDive reports that Qualcomm, a large telecommunications equipment
company, agreed to pay $19.5 million to settle a gender
discrimination class action lawsuit that claimed women were paid
less and had less opportunity for promotion compared to their male
coworkers.

The women in the lawsuit alleged that Qualcomm's promotion policy
depended on a sponsorship model, where a manager must sponsor the
employee they would like to promote.  But Qualcomm's leadership is
overwhelmingly male, meaning women -- who hold less than 15% of
leadership positions in the company -- felt they had little chance
to be chosen, Computerworld reported.

The settlement was reached before the lawsuit was officially
filed, as Qualcomm and the employees opted to mediate in January.
The class complaint still requires filing, however, as well as a
preliminary approval of the agreement from a judge in a federal
court in California, Sanford Heisler, the legal firm representing
the class action, told Computerworld.

RTG FURNITURE: Must Designate Rep for Corporate Deposition
----------------------------------------------------------
In the case, BENJAMIN HANKINSON, et al., individually and on
behalf of others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. R.T.G.
FURNITURE CORP., d/b/a ROOMS TO GO, et al., Defendants, Case No.
15-81139-CIV-COHN/SELTZER (S.D. Fla.), Magistrate Judge Barry S.
Seltzer granted the Plaintiffs' Motion to Compel Defendants to
Designate a Representative for Deposition on Corporate Structure
following the approval of the Second Amended Complaint naming
additional defendants.

The Court permitted the Plaintiffs to revisit the issue of
corporate structure discovery when the affiliates of the
Defendants were added on the Second Amended Complaint.

The Court further ruled that the deposition on the topic requested
is not duplicative or overly broad or burdensome, and is relevant
to the issues and defenses in the case. A corporate defendant is
only bound to provide testimony on matters that are listed in the
"Notice 30(b)(6) Depositions" and that are known or reasonably
available to the corporation. The Court clarified that the
corporation cannot be sanctioned if its corporate representative
is not prepared to testify to matters not described in the notice.

SELECT COMFORT: Court Closes "Azimpour" Case, Denies Amendment
--------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge David S. Doty denied Plaintiff's motion for leave
to file a first amended class action complaint in the case, Saied
Azimpour, Plaintiff, v. Select Comfort Corporation, Defendant,
Civil No. 15-4296 (DSD/KMM), (D. Minn.).

The Court held that interests of finality dictate that leave to
amend should be less freely available after a final order has been
entered.

Post judgment leave to amend will be granted if it is consistent
with the stringent standards governing the grant of Rule 59(e) and
Rule 60(b) relief, such that, a motion to alter or amend a
judgment must be filed no later than 28 days after entry of the
judgment. In the case, Plaintiff filed the instant motion 30 days
after judgment was entered.

ST LAWRENCE REGIONAL: Sept. 7 Settlement Claims Filing Deadline
---------------------------------------------------------------
Nick Gardiner, writing for Recorder and Times, reports that a free
legal clinic offering to help former residents of Brockville's St.
Lawrence Regional Centre sign up for a class-action lawsuit says
important deadlines are approaching.

Alex Geddes said the Legal Clinic has offices in Perth and
Brockville to assist people eligible for awards ranging from
$2,000 to $42,000 for suffering abuse at the regional facility for
the developmentally delayed.

A $36-million settlement was approved in April of this year for
residents in Brockville and similar facilities across Ontario and
Geddes said residents and their caregivers need to act soon to
ensure a settlement commensurate to a claimant's experience.

Most importantly, they have only two months -- until Sept. 27 --
to request a residential file from the Ministry of Community and
Social Services recommended by the clinic to determine the value
of the claim.

Mr. Geddes said the files may point to specific areas of complaint
or trigger memories among clients that would support a claim.

He acknowledged it can be painful for residents or their
caregivers to recall harmful treatment but noted they will not be
required to repeat the stories in person before a tribunal, which
will rely solely on the claims to determine compensation.

The centre operated locally from 1975-'85 and the number of
residents is unclear.  Since it closed along with 10 other
facilities, many residents have died and others have moved
elsewhere and are difficult to reach, said Mr. Geddes.

So the clinic is trying to spread the word to as many former
residents as possible with another deadline approaching on Feb. 28
for a claim form to be submitted.

He said the settlement is similar to a previous class-action suit
won against the province by former residents of larger facilities,
such as Rideau Regional Centre in Smiths Falls.

Residents who received claims from the lawsuit for that facility
and may file a separate claim if they also lived at the
St. Lawrence Regional Centre, noted Mr. Geddes.

Claims may be submitted on behalf of residents by an appointed
representative or estate trustee with supporting statements from a
family relative, support person or health-care provider.

Denise Wright, interim executive director for the Brockville and
District Association for Community Involvement, said the clinic's
assistance arranging for claims is welcomed in the social services
community.

"This is about getting the word out to people entitled to be part
of the lawsuit.  The more information that reaches as many people
as possible is a good thing," said Wright.

Potential claimants should contact the Legal Clinic in Perth at
613-264-8888 for more details about the assistance being offered.


SUPREME SERVICE: Employee Files Class Action Over Unpaid OT Wages
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Maravillas Magtoto, writing for Louisiana Record, reports that an
employee has filed a class-action lawsuit against a Houma employer
over allegations he and others were not paid overtime wages.

Michael Blake and all other similarly situated filed a complaint
on July 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of
Louisiana against Supreme Service & Specialty Co. Inc. alleging
that the employer violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he
routinely worked in excess of 40 hours per workweek but did not
receive overtime compensation.  The plaintiff holds Supreme
Service & Specialty Co. Inc. responsible because the defendant
allegedly failed to pay him overtime compensation at a rate of
one-and-one-half of his regular rate for each hour worked in
excess of 40 per week.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against
defendant for an order to award back wages that have been
improperly withheld, costs of this action, attorneys' fees,
prejudgment and post-judgment interest and such other relief as
may be necessary and appropriate.  He is represented by Michael T.
Tusa Jr. -- mtusa@sutton-alker.com -- of Sutton, Alker & Rather
LLC in Mandeville and Clif Alexander of Anderson2X PLLC in Corpus
Christi, Texas.

TAURUS INT'L: Judge OKs $239MM Pistol Class Action Settlement
-------------------------------------------------------------
Daniel Terrill, writing for Guns.com, reports that a federal judge
approved a $239 million settlement in the class action suit
brought against Taurus International over a design flaw in several
pistol variants that could allow them to discharge when dropped,
even with the safety engaged.

Owners of the alleged defective pistols will be able to submit
claims at a settlement website that has been established as part
of the agreement.

The settlement provides two options for Taurus pistol owners.  The
first includes the company repairing the pistol and providing an
enhanced, lifetime warranty; or owners could exchange them for a
cash payment of up to $200 per gun.

Taurus pistols subject to the defects include the Millennium,
Millennium Pro, Millennium Pro Compact, Millennium Pro Sub-
Compact, 24/7, and others.

The total value of the settlement, $239 million, includes $9
million in attorney's fees and a $15,000 award to the lead
plaintiff, Chris Carter.  As a sheriff's deputy from Iowa, Carter
experienced an accidental discharge in December 2013.

According to court documents, he had his Taurus Model PT-140PRO
holstered, but it fell out as he chased after a suspect on foot.
The gun hit the ground and discharged even though the safety was
engaged and it had an internal drop safety.  He never touched the
trigger.

The class action suit was filed in 2013 and settlement
negotiations began last summer.

Situated v. TROTT & TROTT, P. C., aka TROTT LAW, P.C., Case No.
2:16-cv-10335-DML-APP (E.D. Mich.), as a class action.

The Plaintiff has filed a class action complaint against the

the general public in violation of the Fair Debt Collection

FDCPA class, defined as:

     All Michigan Mortgagors and Consumers whose names and

ULTA SALON: Quinby Seeks Prelim. OK of $3.65MM Class Settlement
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiffs in the lawsuit titled JAIMIE QUINBY, LINDA GOMES,
and ERIC FONTES, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly
situated v. ULTA SALON, COSMETICS & FRAGRANCE, INC., Case No.
3:15-cv-04099-WHO (N.D. Cal.), move the Court for an order
provisionally certifying the settlement class and granting
preliminary approval of the $3,650,000 class settlement.

Class Members, who are entitled to receive settlement payments
from the Fund include "all current and former GMs employed by
Defendant in its California store locations at any time from
September 9, 2011 to September 19, 2016 or the date of the Court's
Preliminary Approval Order, whichever occurs first."

The Plaintiffs are former employees of ULTA Salon, who worked as
General Managers at the Defendant's retail stores in California.
The Plaintiffs alleged that the Defendant violated California law
by improperly classifying them and other Class Members as exempt
from California's overtime laws.  After mediation, the Parties
agreed to settle this wage and hour class action for substantial
monetary relief in the amount of $3,650,000.

The Plaintiffs also ask the Court to appoint The Liu Law Firm,
P.C., and Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld LLP as Class Counsel, and
to approve the proposed Notice of Class Action Settlement and
Fairness Hearing and direct its distribution to Class Members.

The Court will commence a hearing on September 14, 2016, at 2:00
p.m., to consider the Motion.

UNIFUND CCR: Settlement in "Silva" Case Has Final Approval
----------------------------------------------------------
In the case, JOSE SILVA, on behalf of himself and others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. UNIFUND CCR, LLC; and PILOT RECEIVABLES
MANAGEMENT, LLC, Defendants, No. C14-799 TSZ (W.D. Wash.),
District Judge Thomas S. Zilly granted the parties' joint motion
for final approval of class action settlement.

The Court certified for settlement purposes a class and three
subclasses, appointed plaintiff Jose Silva as the Class
Representative, and appointed Aaron D. Radbil of Greenwald
Davidson Radbil PLLC as Class Counsel.

The Court ordered that, within 30 days of the Finality Date,
defendants shall pay (i) actual damages to each member of the
Actual Damages Subclass in the amounts set forth in Exhibit A to
the Declaration of Elizabeth Andres, docket no. 39, which total
$10,956.72, (ii) additional damages in the amount of $125 to each
member of the Additional Damages Paid-in-Cash Subclass, and (iii)
additional damages in the amount of $125 to each member of the
Additional Damages Paid-As-Set-Off Subclass, in the form of a set-
off against each such Subclass Member's outstanding obligation.
Michael Robert Gerlach of Arlington, Lloyd Kenneth Brauner of Loon
Lake, and Amy Elyse of Seattle have opted out of the Class and
their respective Subclasses, and shall not be entitled to any of
the payments described in this paragraph.

Class Representative Jose Silva is awarded $1,000 in additional
damages and $2,500 as an incentive fee, for a total of $3,500. On
the other hand, Class Counsel Aaron D. Radbil of Greenwald
Davidson Radbil PLLC is awarded $45,000 in attorney's fees and
costs, which is a fair and reasonable amount in light of the work
that he and others in his firm performed, the results achieved in
this litigation, and the purposes of the Fair Debt Collection
Practices Act, pursuant to which this action was brought. The
Court ordered that Defendants to make the payments within 10 days
of the Finality Date.

UNITED RECOVERY: Pirkles Move for Class Certification
-----------------------------------------------------
Gail Pirkle and David Pirkle move the Court to certify the class
described in the amended complaint filed in the lawsuit entitled
GAIL PIRKLE and DAVID PIRKLE, Individually and on Behalf of All
Others Similarly Situated v. UNITED RECOVERY SYSTEMS, LP, Case No.
2:16-cv-01032-NJ (E.D. Wisc.).  They also ask the Court to both
stay the motion for class certification and to grant them
Plaintiffs (and the Defendant) relief from the Local Rules setting
automatic briefing schedules and requiring briefs and supporting
material to be filed with the Motion.

Damasco and decisions like it imposed significant burdens on the
Court and on Plaintiff's Counsel, the Plaintiffs assert, citing
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).

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, the
Plaintiffs note.  They contend that they are obligated to move for
class certification to protect the interests of the putative
class.

As the Motion 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 argue.

The Plaintiffs also ask the Court to appoint them as class
representatives and to appoint Ademi & O'Reilly, LLP as class
counsel.

UNITED STATES: Court Dismissed "Santo" Suit v. Federal Government
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, PAUL SANTO, Plaintiff, v. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
et al., Defendants, Case No. 15-12896 (E.D. Mich.), District Judge
Terrence G. Berg grants the Defendants' motion to dismiss against
the Plaintiff's class action suit concerning the alleged
condemnation of his real property ownership in state court.

The Court held that the Plaintiff's action lacks subject matter
jurisdiction and fails to state a claim upon which a relief can be
granted.

The Plaintiff did not identify a waiver of sovereign immunity in
the complaint, which is required in a suit against the United
States alleging monetary damages. In the case, Plaintiff sought
monetary damages of $30,000. The Court further held that, the
Plaintiff makes no factual allegation that would allow the
Defendants to know what wrongful acts they have committed. Thus,
the Court dismissed the case with prejudice.

VITAMIN SHOPPE: Hermida, Florida Claims Dismissed
-------------------------------------------------
In the case, EDWIN SEGOVIA and JUNIOR HERMIDA, on behalf of
themselves and all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v.
VITAMIN SHOPPE, INC., Defendant, No. 14 Civ. 7061 (NSR), (S.D.
N.Y.), District Judge Nelson S. Roman adopted a July 1 undisputed
Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge Lisa Smith.

Judge Smith's Report and Recommendation states that Plaintiff
Hermida and the so-called Florida claims shall be dismissed with
prejudice with respect to this action but without prejudice with
respect to a new action.

The case is a putative class action against Defendants asserting
claims for breach of express of warranty, fraud by uniform written
misrepresentation and omission, and unjust enrichment, as well as
violations of New York's General Business Law Sec. 349 and 350 and
Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act. Plaintiff
initially filed a motion to voluntary dismiss with prejudice
Hermida as a named Plaintiff but keep open the Florida law claims
brought on his behalf. The Magistrate Judge denied the portion of
keeping the Florida law claims pending a substitute named
Plaintiff.

The Court finds no error on the face of the Report and
Recommendation. The Court agrees that Plaintiff Hermida and the
Florida law claims cannot continue forward without some plaintiff
with standing to assert them.

VOLKSWAGEN AG: Emissions-Cheating Scandal Hits First Half Profit
----------------------------------------------------------------
William Boston, writing for Morningstar, reports that Volkswagen
AG reported a 56% drop in after-tax profit in the three months to
the end of June, hit by rising financial costs as the company
struggles to move past its crippling emissions-cheating scandal.

The Wolfsburg, Germany-based car maker, which outpaced rivals
Toyota Motor Corp. and General Motors Co. in sales in the first
six months of the year, said after-tax profit fell to EUR1.2
billion ($1.33 billion) in the second quarter from EUR2.7 billion
a year ago.

The company's shares fell more than 3% to about EUR124 in early
trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on July 28, 2016, as
investors who have driven the shares higher in recent weeks took
profits, analysts said.

Volkswagen said revenue in the three-month period was EUR56.9
billion, up 1.7% from EUR56 billion the year before.  Operating
profit, as reported in a pre-release on July 20, surged nearly 20%
to EUR4.4 billion.  That was halved, however, by charges of EUR2.5
billion, largely related to the diesel scandal. Volkswagen's July
28 release provided details not included in a July 20 advance
release of headline profit figures that beat analysts' forecasts,
but held no real surprises, analysts said.

"This shows that the Volkswagen Group has high earnings power. But
it will require continued hard work to absorb the significant
impact from the diesel issue," said Chief Finance Officer Frank
Witter in a statement.

U.S. environmental authorities disclosed in September that
Volkswagen had been cheating on emissions tests for years by
rigging diesel engines to produce lower emissions when being
tested than during normal driving, forcing a sweeping shake-up of
management and plunging the company into turmoil.

On July 27, a U.S. federal court gave preliminary approval to
Volkswagen's $15 billion settlement with U.S. customers,
environmental authorities and state attorneys general, the largest
class-action settlement ever reached with an auto maker. Final
approval is expected in October.

Volkswagen had set aside EUR16.2, nearly $18 billion, in its 2015
accounts to pay for compensating cheated customers, legal fees and
other costs related to the scandal.

The company said in April it didn't expect further diesel-related
costs.  The second-quarter charges, though significantly lower
than those taken last year, suggest the company has underestimated
the full cost of its diesel scandal.

Czech car maker Skoda, Spain's SEAT, Porsche and the company's
truck division drove Volkswagen's automotive operating profit
higher, compensating for declining earnings at Audi, the
Volkswagen passenger car brand, and Bentley.

Lower earnings from its joint ventures in China, the car maker's
biggest market by sales, also hit Volkswagen earnings.  Profit
from China is booked as a financial gain, so it doesn't appear in
operating earnings.  Volkswagen said China's contribution to
earnings fell to EUR2.4 billion from EUR2.7 billion in the first
half of the year.

Despite the emissions-cheating crisis, Volkswagen sold more
vehicles in the first half of the year and outpaced rivals Toyota
and GM to remain the biggest auto maker in the world by sales.

Volkswagen sales rose 1.5% in the six months to the end of June to
5.1 million vehicles, including its namesake Volkswagen brand,
Audi luxury cars, Porsche sports cars, Skoda, SEAT, Bentley and
Lamborghini.

Toyota, which held the industry crown last year, sold 4.99 million
vehicles in the first half of 2016, down 0.6%, and GM sold 4.76
million vehicles world-wide.

Volkswagen briefly pushed past Toyota last year, but fell back
after the diesel scandal broke.  The company overtook Toyota again
in the first three months of this year and maintained its lead in
the second quarter.


WAL-MART STORES: Hearing on Sex Discrimination Case Canceled
------------------------------------------------------------
Andrew Burger, writing for Southeast Texas Record, reports that
U.S. Circuit Court judge in San Francisco canceled a scheduled
Aug. 19 hearing regarding a motion to intervene and review a Ninth
Circuit judge's 2013 decision to deny class action status to a sex
discrimination lawsuit involving current and former Wal-Mart
employees.

Five former and one current female Wal-Mart employees filed the
motion to intervene in a bid to revive the regional sex
discrimination class action, which covers some 150,000 former and
current employees.

A decision to reverse Ninth Circuit Court Judge Stephen Breyer's
2013 decision would pave the way forward for a regional class
action that would cover three classes of female employees in 202
Wal-Mart and 73 Sam's Club stores in California and 13 other
states from 1998 until roughly 2004, Texas included.

Attorneys for Joyce Clark, Suzanne Hewey, Kristy Farias, Lucretia
Johnson, Hilda Todd and Kristin Marsh filed the motion to
intervene in San Francisco court July 14, one day before five
original plaintiffs to what once was a nationwide sex
discrimination class action withdrew their claims against
Wal-Mart.

The original five plaintiffs in Dukes v. Wal-Mart, Inc., which was
filed in California in 2001, on July 15 settled individually by
signing private and confidential agreements with the corporation,
the world's largest employer.

In their July 14 motion to intervene, the six other class action
members state they had relied on the five original plaintiffs to
protect their interests in the lawsuit.  By settling with
Wal-Mart, the six state they and other class action members can no
longer rely on them to do so.  Collectively, the six have worked
for Wal-Mart in California for 89 years.

"These six women are saying that the Dukes settlement didn't
really get to the issue of the merits of the case.  By filing
their motion they are not just seeking to reopen the class action,
but get to the central issues -- sex discrimination -- which
hasn't been resolved," Al Norman, author of "Occupy
Wal-Mart," told the Southeast Texas Record.

"What's really troubling here is that Betty Dukes and her four co-
plaintiffs apparently agreed to confidentiality agreements as part
of their settlements," he said. "Did they just offer them enough
money? Did they just suffer from litigation fatigue? It's not
clear, but what is obvious is that hundreds of thousands of women
are suffering and may not have their claims heard and judged."

Mr. Norman also is the founder of Sprawl-Busters, a non-profit
organization that works with local community organizations to
design campaigns to limit the spread of mega-stores and other
large-scale commercial development.

"Some of the allegations in original complaint are very
uncomfortable," Mr. Norman said.  "The six women who filed the
motion to intervene are saying that Betty Dukes and the other four
who settled don't speak for us.  Not only did they agree to
settle, but they settled confidentially.  That leaves others
wondering if that's as good as it gets.  Clearly, they have a case
to bring.  Hopefully, this private, confidential settlement won't
deter other women from pushing Walmart as hard as they can."

When contacted the law firm of Gibson Dunn & Crutcher had no
comment on the motion to intervene or the effort to create a new
regional class action. Gibson Dunn did confirm that it continues
to represent Wal-Mart in this and related sex discrimination
lawsuits, however.

No district court has granted class action status to a Wal-Mart
sex discrimination lawsuit since nationwide class action status
was granted in Dukes v. Wal-Mart, Inc., which was originally filed
in a northern California court in 2001.

The U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) decertified the nationwide Dukes
class action in June 2011.  The SCOTUS majority decided that
plaintiffs failed to unite their claims on a common question of
law or fact as required under Rule 23(a) of the Federal Rules of
Civil Procedure.

Ninth District Court Judge Breyer based his 2013 decision to deny
certification to regional class action on SCOTUS's decision.  In
their motion to intervene, the six female former Wal-Mart
employees assert that SCOTUS only ruled that the class action
could not proceed and did not rule on the legal merits of the
case, and that it can proceed as a result.

As was the case in the Dukes national class action, the six
contend that Wal-Mart violated their rights under Title VII of the
Civil Rights Act of 1964 by consistently and systematically
discriminating against them and female employees in general,
denying them equal pay and promotions.

According to their complaint, 65 percent to 87 percent of
Wal Mart and Sam's Club stores in three corporate regions pay
women less compared to similarly situated men.  They are seeking
regional class certification, damages and an injunction directing
Wal-Mart to develop new policies to put an end to sex
discrimination against female workers.

A total of four other class actions have been filed in U.S.
federal district courts alleging systemic sex discrimination by
Wal-Mart managers and supervisors in other corporate regions. Wal-
Mart and plaintiffs agreed to settle sex discrimination lawsuits
in U.S. District Courts in the Northern District of Texas and
Southern District of Florida.

In 2015, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in 2015
reversed a district court's dismissal of regional class claims on
procedural grounds in Phipps v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.  The case is
pending in a federal district court in Tennessee as a judge
considers Wal-Mart's motion to dismiss on merits.

WORLD WRESTLING: Court Grants in Part Motion for Reconsideration
----------------------------------------------------------------
William Windsor, writing for Wresting Inc., reports that WWE
scored a partial victory in the brain injury lawsuit brought by
Evan Singleton (f.k.a. Adam Mercer), Vito LoGrasso, and others, as
the United States District Court of the District of Connecticut
granted, in part, the professional wrestling promotion's Motion
for Reconsideration.  The move enables WWE to revive its
countersuit against four other professional wrestlers who
threatened to bring personal injury claims against the company
last year.  The suit is similar to the one filed earlier in July
with 53 former WWE talents claiming that the WWE was responsible
for neurological injuries they suffered from their time with the
company.

Earlier this year, the Court rejected all but one of Singleton and
Mr. LoGrasso's claims against WWE and ruled that it would only
hear arguments regarding whether WWE failed to disclose to its
performers the link between head trauma and permanent degenerative
neurological conditions.  Arguably, fraudulently omitting such
pertinent information could have influenced the decision-making of
the performers as to whether to enter and re-enter the squared
circle, which, in turn, could be sufficient grounds to suspend
Connecticut's statute of limitations.

In its Motion for Reconsideration, WWE stated that the threatened
claims should be barred by the statute of limitations in the same
way that the claims of the plaintiffs in the cases, as well as any
of the so-called "John Doe" who may bring claims.

The litigating professional wrestlers responded by arguing that
their threatened causes of action did not give rise to federal
jurisdiction over the countersuit.  The Court disagreed with this
position and dismissed only the claims against the "John Doe"
litigants.


XURA INC: "Barney" Sues Over Proposed Sale to Siris
---------------------------------------------------
Kevin Barney, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Xura, Inc., Susan D. Bowick, James Budge,
Niccolo De Masi, Matthew A. Drapkin, Doron Inbar, Henry R.
Nothhaft, Philippe Tartavull, and Mark C. Terrell, Defendants,
Case No. 16-11521 (D. Mass., July 22, 2016), seeks to enjoin,
preliminarily and permanently, a proposed merger, rescissory
damages in breach of fiduciary duties, as well as attorneys and
experts fees and such further relief under the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934.

Xura will be acquired in an all-cash transaction with an equity
value of approximately $643 million by Siris and Company. The
proxy statement failed to disclose material information about the
process leading to the merger agreement. Under the terms of the
merger agreement, Xura stockholders will receive $25.00 per share
in cash for each share of Xura common stock. Plaintiffs allege
that the Defendants locked out other proposals and eliminated the
possibility for other more lucrative offers.

ZETA INTERACTIVE: Defendants' Questions Are Proper, Court Says
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, SERGIO MORA, Plaintiff, v. ZETA INTERACTIVE CORP., et
al., Defendants, Case No. 1:16-cv-00198-DAD-SAB (E.D. Calif.),
Magistrate Judge Stanley A. Boone ordered that Defendants may ask
Plaintiff how many calls he received from Defendants, the date of
the calls, the nature of the calls, and the content of the calls
in a deposition concerning the Defendants' alleged violations of
the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

On July 27, 2016, the Defendants took the deposition of Plaintiff,
during which Plaintiff's counsel instructed Plaintiff not to
answer questions because he believed that they are outside the
scope of the deposition. The Court believes that the questions of
the Defendants are relevant to the issue of arbitrability and it
is not an undue burden for Plaintiff to answer these questions.

The Court notes that during a deposition the parties may object to
questions, but counsel should "instruct a deponent not to answer
only when necessary to preserve a privilege, to enforce a
limitation ordered by the court, or to present a motion under Rule
30(d)(3)." Fed. R. Civ. P. 30(c)(2). If questions are completely
outside the scope of discovery, then the parties may seek
assistance from the Court in the form of a protective order.

* Companies Face Fair Credit Reporting Act Litigation Threat
------------------------------------------------------------
Amanda Ciccatelli, writing for Inside Counsel, reports that the
Fair Credit Reporting Act has been getting a lot of attention
recently.  For starters, companies seem increasingly unable to
adhere to it.

Whole Foods, Home Depot and Wells Fargo are just a few of the big-
name companies that have been hammered in the past year by
employment class action lawsuits alleging they've failed to comply
with the technical requirements of the FCRA when running
background checks and credit reports on potential and current
employees.

Common violations include failure to obtain written consent prior
to the check; failure to share details about what was gleaned and
giving the person time to respond before taking other adverse
action; and failure to provide additional details and allow time
for a dispute after the adverse action has been taken.  The
companies tend to settle, and quickly.  But, companies may no
longer face such lawsuits because using credit checks in
employment decisions could soon be a thing of the past.

Earlier in July, Philadelphia became the 12th U.S. jurisdiction to
make it illegal for employers to obtain or use job applicants' or
current employees' credit history in order to make hiring and
other employment-related decisions, with narrow exceptions.  In
May, Congresswoman Maxine Waters introduced the Comprehensive
Consumer Credit Reporting Reform Act of 2016, which would also ban
employers from running credit checks except in limited cases.

Why the sudden surge in interest in protecting consumers' rights
to credit report privacy? Is it part of the broader interest in
consumer privacy protection in the face of countless new companies
and technologies gathering personal data from consumers around the
clock?

Inside Counsel sat down with two legal experts Bennet Alsher,
partner in the Atlanta office of national labor and employment
firm Ford Harrison and Daniel Kalish, managing partner at HKM
Employment Attorneys, who have litigated numerous cases alleging
violations of the FCRA.  They know the FCRA inside and out and
shared insight into its history, the overall landscape, and what
the current litigation portends for the future.

There have been a number of 6- and 7-figure settlements in recent
months involving high-profile companies.  The FCRA is a very
complex and challenging statute for employers to comply with.  "In
our practice group, we've noticed that there are a number of firms
that hold themselves out as "Consumer Reporting Agencies" within
the meaning of the FCRA," explained Mr. Alsher. "As CRA's, these
firms are required to comply with the FCRA."

"Job applicants understand that most employers will do a
background check before an employee is hired.  So, applicants
recognize that they are going to have to give up some of their
privacy when they apply for a job.  I think it's more related to
the fact that plaintiff attorneys see dollar signs in their future
when they have an FCRA case," said Mr. Alsher.


* Sports-Related Brain Injuries Emerging Area for Insurance Claim
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Katy Barnato, writing for CNBC, reports that sports-related brain
injuries are among the biggest new area for insurance claims, S&P
Global Ratings warned on July 28, shortly after the World Wresting
Entertainment (WWE) was sued by more than 50 former wrestlers.

A landmark class-action settlement last year between the U.S.
National Football League (NFL) and thousands of former players has
pathed a way for claims in both the U.S. and the U.K., S&P said.

Since then, dozens of retired wrestlers have sued the WWE for
neurological injuries allegedly sustained while participating in
the professional fighting company's tournaments.

S&P said injured amateur and professional rugby players might also
look to sue, along with participants in other sports where helmets
are worn to prevent head injuries.  Among entities that could be
targeted for claims are athletics groups, sports teams, schools,
retailers and helmet makers.

The ratings agency said there were similarities between brain-
injuries claims and the claims dating back decades made for
exposure to asbestos.  Insurance companies still pay out around
œ200 million ($263 million) a year in the U.K. to people who were
exposed to asbestos -- a material once commonly used in
manufacturing and construction -- and subsequently developed
cancer.

"We don't believe that sports-related brain-injury claims will
match the scale of asbestos-related claims for mesothelioma and
asbestosis in either the U.S. or the U.K.  However, there are
noteworthy similarities between the two types of claim," S&P
analysts based in London and New York said in a report.
These similarities include the large numbers of people potentially
affected and the fact that brain damage is a latent injury that
may worsen over time.

"U.S. insurers have learned from their experience of asbestos-
related claims and are increasingly drafting exclusion clauses for
concussion claims and capping concussion lawsuit payouts," S&P
added.
