ABBOTT LABORATORIES: Court Dismisses "Marentette" Suit
------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned SARA MARENTETTE, MATTHEW O'NEIL NIGHSWANDER,
and ELLEN STEINLIEN, on behalf of themselves and all others
similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. ABBOTT LABORATORIES, INC.,
Defendant, No. 15-CV-2837 (PKC) (RLM) (E.D.N.Y.), Judge Pamela K.
Chen granted the defendant's motion to dismiss the First Amended
Complaint in its entirety.

Sara Marentette, Matthew O'Neil Nighswander, and Ellen Steinlein,
on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, brought
a putative class action against Abbott Laboratories Inc. and
Abbott Nutrition, alleging that Abbott misled consumers about the
ingredients of its Similac Advance Organic Infant Formulas.
Specifically, the plaintiffs alleged that the packaging for these
products contains the representation "Organic" when in fact the
products contain many ingredients prohibited by the United States
Department of Agriculture (USDA) in organic products.

Abbott moved to dismiss the entire action on the basis that: (1)
the plaintiffs' claims are preempted by the Organic Foods
Production Act of 1990 (OFPA); (2) the plaintiffs failed to
exhaust administrative remedies; (3) the court should defer to the
primary jurisdiction of the USDA; and (4) all claims lack merit
for claim-specific reasons.

Judge Chen found that the plaintiffs' claim that the "Organic"-
certified products are falsely labeled because they allegedly
contain ingredients not permitted by the OFPA amounts to a
challenge to the USDA certification itself, and is therefore
preempted.  Further, because all of the plaintiffs' state law
claims depend on the alleged falsity of the products' "Organic"
label, Judge Chen found that all of the plaintiffs' claims are
preempted, and granted Abbott's motion to dismiss the First
Amended Complaint in its entirety.

order is available at https://is.gd/RWVdnA from Leagle.com.

ATD LLC: Court Rules on Holland & Hart's Bill of Costs
------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned XTO ENERGY, INC., Plaintiff, v. ATD, LLC,
AIR TECH DRILLING, INC. and ZURICH AMERICAN INSURANCE COMPANY,
Defendants. ZURICH AMERICAN INSURANCE COMPANY, Third-Party
Plaintiff, v. BASIC ENERGY SERVICES, INC., WEATHERFORD ARTIFICIAL
LIFT SYSTEMS, INC., WEATHERFORD INTERNATIONAL, INC., and,
WEATHERFORD U.S., L.P., Third-Party Defendants, No. Civ 14-1021
JB/SCY (D.N.M.), Judge James O. Browning granted in part and
denied, in part, the Bill of Costs filed by Holland & Hart LLP

On November 10, 2014, XTO Energy filed a federal lawsuit asserting
that the defendants breached their agreements with XTO Energy by
refusing to defend XTO Energy against the litigation filed against
it by Scott Manley and Shanna Manley, as well as by Jose and
Virginia Betancur, pending in state court.

On November 19, 2015, defendant Zurich Insurance issued a subpoena
requesting XTO Energy's counsel, Holland & Hart, LLP, to produce
its billing records and agreements relating to its representation
of other clients.  The court subsequently concluded that the
subpoena imposed an undue burden on Holland & Hart, and awarded
costs and fees to Holland & Hart.

Holland & Hart requested $10,526.50 for the time spent responding
to Zurich Insurance's subpoena.  Holland & Hart submitted a time
sheet detailing the amount due for various tasks.  Zurich
Insurance objected to Holland & Hart's hourly rates as "excessive
and unreasonable as a matter of law."

After an extensive review of local rates, Judge Browning concluded
that $350.00 is a reasonable hourly rate for experienced partners
doing high-end, complicated insurance work, while a reasonable
rate for experienced associates is $200.00.  The judge also
determined that the number of hours that Holland & Hart spent
writing motions was reasonable.  Accordingly, Judge Browning
granted in part and denied in part the motion.  Judge Browning
awarded XTO Energy attorney's fees for the number of hours that
Holland & Hart submitted, but reduced the rates for the two
Holland & Hart attorneys representing XTO Energy, to $350.00 for
Mr. Ramirez and to $200.00 for Ms. Custer.

AUTORIDAD DE ENERGIA: Summary Judgment for PREPA Affirmed
---------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned DUAMEL SANTIAGO-RAMOS, individually and as
representative of the Conjugal Partnership; MARINES RIVERA-
FIGUEROA; CARIBBEAN ECONOMIC COUNCIL, Plaintiffs, Appellants, v.
AUTORIDAD DE ENERGIA ELECTRICA DE PUERTO RICO, AEE, a/k/a Puerto
Rico Power Company, Defendant, Appellee, MARIMAR PEREZ-RIERA,
Defendant, No. 15-1507 (1st Cir.), the United States Court of
Appeals, First Circuit affirmed the district court's grant of
summary judgment for Autoridad de Energia Electrica de Puerto Rico
(PREPA).

Plaintiffs-appellants Duamel Santiago-Ramos, Marines Rivera-
Figueroa, and Caribbean Economic Council filed a class action suit
on behalf of approximately 1.5 million Puerto Rican residents who
are customers of PREPA against the defendant-appellee PREPA
alleging that PREPA's use of a portion of its overall revenue to
subsidize municipalities' energy use violates the Takings Clause
and deprives the plaintiffs-appellants of their property interest
in electricity and/or the funds they paid for electricity in
violation of procedural due process.

The district court adopted a magistrate judge's recommendation
granting PREPA's motion for summary judgment and dismissing the
plaintiffs-appellants' claims with prejudice, finding that they
had not identified a valid property interest, no taking had
occurred, and no valid procedural due process claim existed in
light of the absence of a property interest.

On appeal, the First Circuit affirmed the district court's grant
of summary judgment.  The Hon. Juan Rafael Torruella del Valle,
Sr., who penned the decision, said the appellate court found that
the plaintiff-appellants do not have standing to bring the takings
and due process claims because the plaintiffs-appellants did not
identify a valid property interest.

The Hon. Jeffrey R. Howard, concurring in the judgment, agreed
that the plaintiffs have not established that they have a
protected property interest.  "But I would characterize this
defect as going to the merits, not to standing. In addition, I
would not decide whether PREPA's regulations give plaintiffs a
property interest in electricity," he said.

BANK OF AMERICA: Claims vs Credit Suisse, et al. Dismissed
----------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned DORIS SUE ALLEN, et al., Plaintiffs, v. BANK
OF AMERICA CORPORATION, et al., Defendants, No. 15 Civ. 4285 (LGS)

the defendants, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Deutsche Bank
AG, Morgan Stanley, Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC and Morgan Stanley
Capital Services LLC.

a decade.  The plaintiffs purported to bring the action "on behalf
of the named Plaintiffs' ERISA employee benefit Plans [("the
Plans")] which cover more than 400,000 plan participants and
beneficiaries, and as a class action on behalf of participants,
beneficiaries, and named fiduciaries of all other similarly
situated Plans."  The named plaintiffs are beneficiaries,
participants or trustees of defined benefit, defined contribution
or death benefit plans.

The defendants, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Deutsche Bank
AG, Morgan Stanley, Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC and Morgan Stanley
Capital Services LLC -- Moving Defendants -- moved to dismiss the
Second Amended Class Action Complaint's claims against them under
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6) for lack of
subject matter jurisdiction and for failure to state a claim.

Judge Schofield denied the Moving Defendants' motion to dismiss
based on lack of subject matter jurisdiction is denied.  However,
the judge found that the complaint does not adequately plead that
the Moving Defendants were ERISA fiduciaries, and that it also
does not state a colorable claim based on the theory that the
Moving Defendants were "parties in interest."

Thus, Judge Schofield granted the Moving Defendants' Rule 12(b)(6)
motion in its entirety and the complaint's claims against those
entities were dismissed.

order is available at https://is.gd/yPu8Zo from Leagle.com.

BLACKBERRY LIMITED: 2nd Cir. Sends "Cox" Suit Back to Lower Court
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals, Second Circuit, remanded the
case styled, TODD COX, MARY DINZIK, Plaintiffs-Appellants, MARVIN
PEARLSTEIN, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. BLACKBERRY LIMITED, FKA RESEARCH IN MOTION
LIMITED, THORSTEN HEINS, BRIAN BIDULKA, Defendants-Appellees, No.
15-3991 (2nd Cir.), to the District Court for the Southern
District of New York to decide whether the Plaintiffs' should be
granted their motion for reconsideration and leave to amend
complaint.

In the case, Plaintiffs sued defendants for violations of Section
10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Securities and
Exchange Commission Rule 10b-5, alleging that defendants made
material misstatements and omitted material information related to
the release of the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone.

The Second Circuit affirmed the district court's dismissal of the
Complaint for failing to present a strong inference of scienter.
As defined, "scienter" in the context of the case means "a mental
state embracing intent to deceive, manipulate or defraud."

The remaining issue of the case pertains to the district court's
order denying the Plaintiffs' request to amend without
explanation. In view of this, the 2nd Circuit vacated the district
court's order and remanded the issue for the district court to
reconsider whether plaintiffs should be granted leave to amend.

BON SECOURS: Cohen Milstein Named Sole Interim Lead Counsel
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the case, ARLENE HODGES, Plaintiff, v. BON SECOURS HEALTH
SYSTEM, INC., et al., Defendants. CAROLYN MILLER, Plaintiff, v.
BON SECOURS HEALTH SYSTEM, INC., et al., Defendants, Civil Action
Nos. RDB-16-1079, RDB-16-1150 (D. Md.), District Judge Richard D.
Bennett reconciled competing motions seeking appointment of
interim lead class counsel status in a consolidated "Church Plan"
litigation by proclaiming Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll as sole
interim lead class counsel.

In the case, the Court only favored Plaintiff Hodges's motion to
appoint Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll as interim lead class
counsel but denied the appointment of Keller Rohrback as co-lead
class counsel by justifying that a single law firm to serve as
lead interim counsel in the case would be a more efficient action,
saving resources and reducing scheduling burdens.

Likewise, the Court denied Plaintiff Miller's move that the law
firms of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLC and Izard, Kindall &
Raabe LLP be appointed as co-lead class counsel and that Janet,
Jenner & Suggs, LLC be appointed as interim liaison class counsel.

The Court cited that Fed.R.Civ.P. Rule 23(g)(1) instructs courts
to consider these criteria in appointing class counsel: (i) the
work counsel has done in identifying or investigating potential
claims in the action; (ii) counsel's experience in handling class
actions, other complex litigation, and the types of claims
asserted in the action; (iii) counsel's knowledge of the
applicable law; and (iv) the resources that counsel will commit to
representing the class.

In the case, the Court held that only Plaintiff Hodges' Complaint
alleges causes of action, thus providing more comprehensive
protection for the Plaintiff and the class. Also, Plaintiff
Hodges' counsel have the most experience in litigating the
complicated issue of statutory and constitutional interpretation
of the case.

BRIGHAM YOUNG: "Carr" Suit Consolidated in MDL 2492
---------------------------------------------------
Larry Carr, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. Brigham Young University, Western
Athletic Conference, and National Collegiate Athletic Association,
the Defendants, Case No. 1:16-cv-01732, was transferred from the
U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, to the U.S.
District Court for the Northern District of Illinois - (Chicago).
The Northern District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 1:16-cv-08581
to the proceeding.

The Carr case is being consolidated with MDL 2492 in re: National
Collegiate Athletic Association Student-Athlete Concussion Injury
Litigation. The MDL was created by Order of the United States
Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on December 18, 2013.
The actions before the Panel seek medical monitoring for putative
classes of former student athletes at NCAA-member schools who
allege they suffered concussions. Plaintiffs allege that the
NCAA concealed information about the risks of the long-term
effects of concussion injuries. Opponents to centralization argue,
inter alia, that (1) the putative classes and claims alleged in
these actions do not sufficiently overlap; and (2) given the small
number of actions pending, alternatives to centralization are
preferable. In its December 18, 2013 Order, the MDL Panel found
that the actions in this MDL involve common questions of fact, and
that centralization in the Northern District of Illinois will
serve the convenience of the parties and witnesses and promote the
just and efficient conduct of the litigation. These actions share
factual questions relating to allegations against the NCAA
stemming from injuries sustained while playing sports at NCAA-
member institutions, including damages resulting from the
permanent long-term effects of concussions. Presiding Judges in
the MDL is Hon. John Z. Lee, United States District Judge. The
lead case is 1:13-cv-09116.

Brigham Young University is a private research university located
in Provo, Utah, United States. It is owned and operated by The
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

C.H. ROBINSON: $1MM Settlement in "Mrazik" Case Has Final OK
------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, STEPHANIE MRAZIK, an individual, on behalf of
herself, and on behalf of all persons similarly situated,
Plaintiff, v. C.H. ROBINSON COMPANY; C.H. ROBINSON WORLDWIDE,
INC.; and DOES 1 through 50, inclusive, Defendants, Case No. 8:12-
cv-02067-CAS-PLA (C.D. Calif.), District Judge Christina A. Snyder
granted the plaintiff's motion for final approval of the class
settlement including the payments to the Settlement Administrator,
to the Plaintiff, and to Class Counsel.

The Court finds and determines that the Gross Settlement Amount of
$1,000,000 and the Settlement Shares to be paid to the Claimants
as provided for by the Settlement are fair and reasonable.

The Court also finds and determines that the fees and expenses of
Gilardi & Co. in administrating the settlement, in the amount of
$15,000, are fair and reasonable.

Moreover, the Court grants final approval to and orders that the
payment of the requested amounts of $10,000 for the Class
Representative Service Payment, $250,000 for the Class Counsel
Fees Payment, and $19,017.91 for the Class Counsel Litigation
Expenses Payment be paid out of the Gross Settlement Amount in
accordance with the Settlement.

Without affecting the finality of the Final Approval Order in any
way, the Court retains jurisdiction of all matters relating to the
interpretation, administration, implementation, effectuation and
enforcement of the order and the Settlement.

CASAL INSTITUTE: Students are Employees under FLSA, Court Says
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned MARNI M. GUY, Individually and on behalf of
all other similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. CASAL INSTITUTE OF
NEVADA, LLC dba AVEDA INSTITUTE LAS VEGAS, ARTHUR J. PETRIE, JOHN
GRONVALL, and THOMAS CIARNELLO, Defendants, Case No. 2:13-cv-
02263-RFB-GWF (D. Nev.), Judge Richard F. Boulware, II granted the
plaintiffs' motion for partial summary judgment, and denied the
defendant's motion for summary judgment.

The case arises from the failure of Casal Institute of Nevada, LLC
dba Aveda Institute of Las Vegas, to pay the plaintiffs, Aveda
students and alleged employees, under the Fair Labor Standards Act
(FLSA).

The defendant argued that, as a matter of law, the plaintiffs'
FLSA claims, and therefore the plaintiffs' related Nevada law
claim, must fail, citing several district court cases in and
outside the Ninth Circuit to argue generally that under the
economic realities test, cosmetology students cannot be employees
under the FLSA.

Using the economic realities test laid out in Walling v. Portland
Terminal Co., 330 U.S. 148, 152 (1947), however, Judge Boulware
found that the plaintiffs were employees under the FLSA as a
matter of law.

Judge Boulware found that two main factors weigh in favor of
finding that the plaintiffs are employees under the FLSA:

     -- First, Judge Boulware found that Aveda treated its
        students as employees: students alone performed
        cosmetology services to paying customers with limited
        supervision by Aveda educators, who spent as little as
        five minutes with students during the course of an
        hourslong procedure.

     -- Second, employing the application of the economic reality
        analysis to the "subordination model" articulated in
        Benjamin v. B & H Educ., Inc., No. 13-CV-04993-VC, 2015
        WL 6164891 at *1(N.D. Cal. Oct. 16, 2015), Judge Boulware
        found that Aveda subordinated the interests of its
        students' education to its own interest in providing
        services to paying customers.

Moreover, the judge found that Aveda could not proffer significant
or compelling evidence to establish that its business model was
not predicated on unpaid student labor.

CHADBOURNE & PARKE: "Campbell" Suit Alleges Bias Against Women

KERRIE CAMPBELL, On Behalf of Herself and Others Similarly
Situated, Plaintiff, v. CHADBOURNE & PARKE LLP, Defendant, Case

CHAPARRAL ENERGY: Does Not Object to Bid to Lift Bankruptcy Stay
----------------------------------------------------------------
Chaparral Energy, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on August 12, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended June 30, 2016, that the Company does not
object to a motion by plaintiffs in the case, Naylor Farms, Inc.,
individually and as class representative on behalf of all
similarly situated persons v. Chaparral Energy, L.L.C., asking the
bankruptcy court to lift the automatic stay for the limited
purpose of allowing the District Court to rule on the pending
motion for class certification.

On June 7, 2011, an alleged class action was filed against us in
the United States District Court for the Western District of
Oklahoma ("Naylor Farms Case") alleging that we improperly
deducted post-production costs from royalties paid to plaintiffs
and other royalty interest owners as categorized in the petition
from crude oil and natural gas wells located in Oklahoma. The
purported class includes non-governmental royalty interest owners
in oil and natural gas wells we operate in Oklahoma. The
plaintiffs have alleged a number of claims, including breach of
contract, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, and
other claims and seek termination of leases, recovery of
compensatory damages, interest, punitive damages and attorney fees
on behalf of the alleged class.

The Company said, "We have responded to the Naylor Farms petition,
denied the allegations and raised arguments and defenses.
Plaintiffs filed a motion for class certification in October of
2015.  In addition, the plaintiffs filed a motion for summary
judgment asking the court to determine as a matter of law that
natural gas is not marketable until it is in the condition and
location to enter an interstate pipeline.  Responsive briefs to
both motions were filed in the fourth quarter of 2015.  The court
has not ruled on the motions, and no hearing has been scheduled."

"On May 20, 2016, we filed a Notice of Suggestion of Bankruptcy,
informing the court that we had filed voluntary petitions for
relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code.  In
response, on May 23, 2016, the court issued an order
administratively closing the case, subject to reopening depending
on the disposition of the bankruptcy proceedings.

"On July 22, 2016, attorneys for the putative class filed a motion
in the Bankruptcy Court asking the court to lift the automatic
stay and allow the case to proceed in the United States District
Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. We do not object to
lifting the automatic stay with regard to this case for the
limited purpose of allowing the District Court to rule on the
pending motion for class certification.

"We are not currently able to estimate a reasonably possible loss
or range of loss or what impact, if any, the Naylor Farms Case
will have on our financial condition, results of operations or
cash flows due to the preliminary status of the matters, the
complexity and number of legal and factual issues presented by the
matter and uncertainties with respect to, among other things, the
nature of the claims and defenses, the potential size of the
class, the scope and types of the properties and agreements
involved, and the ultimate potential outcome of the matter.
Plaintiffs in the Naylor Farms Case have indicated, if the class
is certified, they seek damages in excess of $5,000 which may
increase with the passage of time, a majority of which would be
comprised of interest. We dispute plaintiffs' claims, dispute the
case meets the requirements for class certification, and are
vigorously defending the case and opposing the motion."


CHAPARRAL ENERGY: Discovery Has Not Commenced in "Dodson" Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
Chaparral Energy, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on August 12, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended June 30, 2016, that a class has not been
certified and discovery has not yet commenced in the case, Amanda
Dodson, individually and as class representative on behalf of all
similarly situated persons v. Chaparral Energy, L.L.C.

On May 10, 2013, Amanda Dodson, filed a complaint against us in
the District Court of Mayes County, Oklahoma, ("Dodson Case") with
allegation similar to those asserted in the Naylor Farms case
related to post-production deductions, and include claims for
breach of contract, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, unjust
enrichment, and other claims and seek termination of leases,
recovery of compensatory damages, interest, punitive damages and
attorney fees on behalf of the alleged class. The alleged class
includes non-governmental royalty interest owners in oil and
natural gas wells we operate in Oklahoma. We have responded to the
Dodson petition, denied the allegations and raised a number of
affirmative defenses. At this time, a class has not been certified
and discovery has not yet commenced.

The Company said, "We are not currently able to estimate a
reasonable possible loss or range of loss or what impact, if any,
the Dodson Case will have on its financial condition, results of
operations or cash flows due to the preliminary status of the
matters, the complexity and number of legal and factual issues
presented by the matter and uncertainties with respect to, among
other things, the nature of the claims and defenses, the potential
size of the class, the scope and types of the properties and
agreements involved, and the ultimate potential outcome of the
matter. We dispute plaintiffs' claims, dispute that the case meets
the requirements for a class action and are vigorously defending
the case."


CHAPARRAL ENERGY: Has Not Responded to Motion in "Donelson" Case
----------------------------------------------------------------
Chaparral Energy, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on August 12, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended June 30, 2016, that the Company has yet to
respond to motion to alter opinion in the case, Martha Donelson
and John Friend, on behalf of themselves and on behalf of all
similarly situated persons v. Chaparral Energy, L.L.C.

On August 11, 2014, an alleged class action was filed against us,
as well as several other operators in Osage County, in the United
States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma,
alleging claims on behalf of the named plaintiffs and all
similarly situated Osage County land owners and surface lessees.
The plaintiffs challenged leases and drilling permits approved by
the Bureau of Indian Affairs without the environmental studies
required under the National Environmental Protection (NEPA).
Plaintiffs assert claims seeking recovery for trespass, nuisance,
negligence and unjust enrichment. Relief sought includes declaring
oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits obtained in Osage
County without a prior NEPA study void ab initio, removing us from
all properties owned by the class members, disgorgement of
profits, and compensatory and punitive damages.

On March 31, 2016, the Court dismissed the case against the
federal agencies named as defendants, and therefore against all
defendants, as an improper challenge under NEPA and the
Administrative Procedures Act.

On April 29, 2016, the plaintiffs filed a motion to alter or amend
the court's opinion and vacate the judgment, arguing the court
does have jurisdiction to hear the claims and dismissal of the
federal defendants does not require dismissal of the oil company
defendants. Plaintiffs also filed a motion to file an amended
complaint to cure the deficiencies which the court found in the
dismissed complaint.

Several defendants have filed briefs objecting to plaintiffs'
motions. On May 20, 2016, the Company filed a Notice of Suggestion
of Bankruptcy, informing the court that we had filed voluntary
petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States
Bankruptcy Code, and has not responded to the plaintiffs' motions.
The court has not yet ruled.

"We are not yet able to estimate a possible loss, or range of
possible loss, if any. We dispute plaintiffs' claims, dispute that
the case meets the requirements for a class action and are
vigorously defending the case," the Company said.


CHAPARRAL ENERGY: Still Defends "West" Class Suit in Oklahoma
-------------------------------------------------------------
Chaparral Energy, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on August 12, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended June 30, 2016, that the case, Lisa West and
Stormy Hopson, individually and as class representatives on behalf
of all similarly situated persons v. Chaparral Energy, L.L.C.,
remains pending.

On February 18, 2016, an alleged class action was filed against
us, as well as several other operators in the District Court of
Pottawatomie County, State of Oklahoma ("West Case"), alleging
claims on behalf of named plaintiffs and all similarly situated
persons having an insurable real property interest in Cleveland,
Lincoln, McClain, Okfuskee, Oklahoma, Pontotoc, Pottawatomie and
Seminole Counties, Oklahoma (the "Class Area"). The plaintiffs
allege the oil and gas operations conducted by us and the other
defendants have induced or triggered earthquakes in the Class
Area. The plaintiffs are asking the court to require the
defendants to reimburse plaintiffs and class members for
earthquake insurance premiums from 2011 through a future date
defined as the time at which the court determines there is no
longer a risk that our activities induce or trigger earthquakes,
as well as attorney fees and costs and other relief. The
plaintiffs have not asked for damages related to actual property
damage which may have occurred.

"We have responded to the petition, denied the allegations and
raised a number of affirmative defenses. At this time, a class has
not been certified and discovery has not yet commenced," the
Company said.

On March 18, 2016, the case was removed to the United States
District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma under the
Class Action Fairness Act ("CAFA"). Plaintiffs moved to remand the
matter to the Pottawatomie County court, and the court has set a
hearing for August 25, 2016, at which the plaintiffs will be
permitted to submit evidence that remand is appropriate due to
exceptions to jurisdiction under CAFA.

"We and other defendants have filed motions to dismiss the West
Case for lack of subject matter jurisdiction, failure to state a
claim upon which relief can be granted, and other grounds. On May
20, 2016, we filed a Notice of Suggestion of Bankruptcy, informing
the court that we had filed voluntary petitions for relief under
Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code," the Company
said.

"We are not currently able to estimate a reasonable possible loss
or range of loss or what impact, if any, the West Case will have
on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows
due to the preliminary status of the matters, the complexity and
number of legal and factual issues presented, and uncertainties
with respect to, among other things, the nature of the claims and
defenses, the potential size of the class, the scope and types of
the properties and agreements involved, and the ultimate potential
outcome of the matter. We dispute plaintiffs' claims, dispute that
the case meets the requirements for a class action, dispute the
remedies requested are available under Oklahoma law, and are
vigorously defending the case."


CHEN SUSHI KING: Compromise Reached in "Spallone" Suit
------------------------------------------------------
In the case, Robert Spallone, on behalf of himself and all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. Chen Sushi King, LLC d/b/a SOHO
544, and John Doe 1-10, individually, Defendants, No. 4:16-cv-
01684-RBH (D. S.C.), District Judge R. Bryan Harwell granted the
parties' stipulated compromise in an action alleging Defendant's
violation of the South Carolina Payment of Wages Act.

The parties jointly moved the Court for an Order, pursuant to FRCP
16(a)(1), to stipulate to certain issues in an effort to
streamline this action. Parties have negotiated a compromise in
which each is giving up certain rights, but each believes it is
best for them in proceeding with this action.

Accordingly, the Court granted the parties' agreement as follows:

     (1) Plaintiffs will dismiss, with prejudice, their Third
         Cause of Action alleging violation of the South Carolina
         Payment of Wages Act;

     (2) In exchange for this dismissal, Defendants consent that
         Plaintiffs have, under their current first cause of
         action alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards
         Act (FLSA), as an additional, available remedy to them,
         the ability to recover all tips he or she contributed to
         the one Tip Pool operated by Defendants, which tips were
         redistributed by Defendants to employees who did not
         customarily and regularly receive tips.

     (3) For the damages recovered for the tips contributed to
         the Tip Pool, the same standards for the length of the
         statute of limitations under the FLSA will apply for
         this additional remedy.

Pursuant to the stipulation, neither the motion nor any of its
content will be admissible to the jury.

CITIGROUP GLOBAL: NY Court Dismisses All Children's Hospital Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned ALL CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL, INC., Plaintiff, v.
CITIGROUP GLOBAL MARKETS, INC., Defendant, Docket No. 162155/2014,
Mot. Seq. Nos. 001, 002 (N.Y.), the Supreme Court of New York
County granted the defendant's motion to dismiss on the ground
that the claims are time-barred.

ACH is a non-profit corporation that owns and operates the All
Children's Hospital facility located in St. Petersberg, Florida.
On September 18, 2007, ACH issued two series of bonds, totaling
$92,200,000, as a means to provide additional funds to complete
improvements for medical services.  ACH contended that at
Citigroup's recommendation the bonds it issued were in the form of
auction-rate securities (ARS).  ACH claimed that Citigroup served
as its advisor, underwriter, broker-dealer, and investment banker
in connection with the September 2007 ARS bond issuance.  The crux
of ACH's complaint is that Citigroup failed to disclose that it
was artificially propping up the ARS market through its support
bids and that its artificial support bids were necessary to create
the needed correlation between the rate on ARS and the rate of a
corresponding interest rate swap based on the London Interbank
Offered Rate (LIBOR).  In early 2008, Citigroup stopped
artificially supporting the ARS market.  As a result, the interest
rates of ACH's ARS suffered and ACH ultimately refinanced the A-
series ARS.

ACH commenced an action asserting four causes of action: breach of
fiduciary duty, fraud, breach of contract and breach of duty of
good faith and fair dealing, and negligent and fraudulent
misrepresentation.

Citigroup moved to dismiss the complaint arguing, inter alia, that
ACH's claims are barred by the applicable statute of limitations.
Citigroup contended that under CPLR 202, New York's borrowing
statute, Florida's shorter limitations periods apply to ACH's
claims.

ACH argued that the parties choice of law provision contained in
the broker-dealer agreement applies to issues involving the
appropriate statutes of limitations.

The Supreme Court found that, contrary to ACH's argument,
regardless of the fact that New York is the contractually selected
forum, under the factual circumstances of the case, CPLR 202
applies, and, therefore, Florida's shorter limitations period
applies as well.

The Court pointed out that ACH is a Florida non-profit corporation
located in Florida, and it sustained alleged economic damages in
Florida. Therefore, the Court concluded that ACH's claims accrued
in Florida, and CPLR 202 requires application of Florida's shorter
limitations period to ACH's claims.

CONSOLIDATED WORLD TRAVEL: "Hewlett" Suit Survives Bid to Dismiss
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge William B. Shubb denied the defendant's motion to dismiss
the case captioned KINAYA HEWLETT, on behalf of herself and all
others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. CONSOLIDATED WORLD
TRAVEL, INC. d/b/a HOLIDAY CRUISE LINE, Defendant, Civ. No. 2:16-
713 WBS AC (E.D. Cal.).

Kinaya Hewlett brought the putative class action against
Consolidated World Travel, Inc. d/b/a Holiday Cruise Line,
alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act
(TCPA).  Hewlett alleged that, in March 2016, Consolidated called
her "cellular telephone nearly daily using an automatic telephone
dialing system [ATDS] and artificial or prerecorded voice" in an
attempt "to sell [plaintiff] a 'free cruise.'"  Hewlett alleged
that she did not give her prior express consent to receive these
autodialed calls from Consolidated.  She stated that Consolidated
called her from multiple telephone numbers and continued to call
her despite her repeated "requests to Defendant and/or its agents
for the calls to stop."  Hewlett also sought to represent a
putative class of other unconsenting recipients of Consolidated's
autodialed calls.

In its motion to dismiss, Consolidated argued that the court does
not have subject matter jurisdiction over the case because Hewlett
lacks standing under Article III.  Consolidated also contended
that Hewlett failed to state a claim for relief because she has
not alleged "any facts plausibly stating that [defendant] had any
involvement in the telephone calls."

Judge Shubb, however, found Hewlett's allegations are sufficient
to confer Article III standing, and that accordingly, the court
has subject matter jurisdiction over the action.

Judge Shubb also found that Hewlett has stated a plausible claim
that Consolidated used an ATDS to call Hewlett's cellular phone
without her prior express consent in violation of 47 U.S.C.
section 227(b)(1)(A)(iii).  Accordingly, Judge Shubb denied
Consolidated's motion to dismiss.

RANDALL L. HENSLEY, Plaintiffs, v. CYPRESS MEDIA, L.L.C.,
Defendant, No. 4:13-cv-0947-DGK (W.D. Mo.), Chief District Judge

Plaintiffs alleges that Defendant Cypress Media, L.L.C.,
unlawfully "double-billed" them for newspaper subscriptions.

CYPRESS MEDIA: Bid to Strike Summary Judgment Motion OK'd in Part
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned ELIZABETH O'SHAUGHNESSY, MICHAEL
O'SHAUGHNESSY, and RANDALL L. HENSLEY, Plaintiffs, v. CYPRESS
MEDIA, L.L.C., Defendant, No. 4:13-cv-0947-DGK (W.D. Mo.), Judge
Greg Kays granted in part the plaintiffs' motion to strike the
defendant's motion for summary judgment.

The lawsuit arose from the plaintiffs' allegations that the
defendant Cypress Media, L.L.C., unlawfully "double-billed" them
for newspaper subscriptions.  The plaintiffs brought the case as a
class action, and the court subsequently denied the plaintiffs'
motion for class certification.

On November 30, 2015, Cypress moved for summary judgment, citing
newly disclosed documents in its Statement of Uncontroverted
Material Facts accompanying its motion to dismiss.

The plaintiffs moved to strike the Cypress' motion, arguing that
Cypress violated Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 26 and 37 by
failing to disclosing 75 documents until three weeks after the
close of discovery, and that this late disclosure prejudiced them
by causing the court to deny class certification.  The plaintiffs
asked the court to strike Cypress's summary judgment motion and
impose unspecified additional sanctions.  The plaintiffs also
filed a renewed motion for class certification based on the new
documents.

Cypress responded that the November 2015 production was primarily
a supplemental production, the disclosure did not violate any
discovery rule or order, and that the plaintiffs were not
prejudiced.

Judge Kays granted the plaintiffs' motion in part.  The judge
found that some of the documents were untimely disclosed in
violation of Rule 26, but only the late disclosure of the
subscription invoice/renewal form templates prejudiced the
plaintiffs, and this prejudice was relatively mild.  The judge
held that nothing in these late-disclosed documents alters the
court's class certification ruling or otherwise justifies granting
the plaintiffs the drastic relief they seek.  Judge Kays
nevertheless held that the late disclosure of the subscription
invoice/renewal form templates violated Rule 37, and so the court
ordered Cypress to pay the reasonable expenses, including
attorney's fees, caused by the violation.

DIRECTV: Court Narrows Claims in "Flynn" Suit
---------------------------------------------
In the case captioned JEAN M. FLYNN et al., Plaintiffs, v.
DIRECTV, LLC and MAS TEC, INC., Defendants, No. 3:15-cv-1053 (JAM)
(D. Conn.), Judge Jeffrey Alker Meyer granted the defendants'
motion to dismiss as to the class claim alleging trespass (Count
Two), but denied the motion as to both the individual and class
claims under the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practice Act (CUTPA)
(Counts Three and Four).

The plaintiffs are owners of a residential rental property with
tenants who have purchased television services from DIRECTV, LLC.
The plaintiffs claimed that DIRECTV and its contractor, Mas Tec
Inc., installed satellite dishes on the exterior of the
plaintiffs' property without their consent and in accordance with
a business practice that was designed to circumvent their right to
withhold consent.  The plaintiffs sought to represent a class of
similarly situated property owners, alleging state law claims of
common law trespass and violation of the CUTPA.

The defendants moved to dismiss the plaintiffs' CUTPA claim on the
ground that the plaintiffs have not pleaded a requisite business
relationship with the defendants.

The defendants have further moved to strike the plaintiffs' class
action allegations on the ground that the plaintiffs cannot meet
the so-called "commonality" and "ascertainability" requirements to
maintain a class action under Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of
Civil Procedure.

Judge Meyer denied the motion to dismiss the CUTPA claim on the
ground that the plaintiffs have adequately alleged facts that
suffice to meet any business relationship requirement that may be
required to sustain a CUTPA claim.

Judge Meyer, however, granted the motion to strike insofar as the
plaintiffs seek class-action status to litigate their claim of
common law trespass, because it is clear that individual issues of
consent will predominate over the adjudication of any trespass
claims.

Judge Meyer also stated that he will deny the motion to strike
insofar as the plaintiffs seek class-action status to litigate
their CUTPA claim, because it is premature to conclude that
plaintiffs cannot satisfy the commonality and ascertainability
requirements for their CUTPA claim.

ENCORE RECEIVABLE: Court Dismisses "Rosa" Suit
----------------------------------------------
Judge Michael A. Shipp granted Encore Receivable Management,
Inc.'s motion to dismiss the case captioned LUIS ROSA, on behalf
of himself and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. ENCORE
RECEIVABLE MANAGEMENT, INC., et al., Defendants, Civil Action No.
15-2311 (MAS) (TJB) (D.N.J.).

Luis Rosa filed a putative class action against Encore alleging
that it violated the FDCPA.  Specifically, Rosa alleged that
Encore sent correspondence "to at least 50 natural persons in the
State of New Jersey" that deceived consumers into believing that
they could dispute their debt by either calling or writing to
Encore when in fact "a consumer can only make a legally effective
dispute by writing to the Defendant."

Judge Shipp found that both the form and substance of the
instruction to call in the correspondence do not emphasize calling
the debt collector or suggest that Rosa should forgo the procedure
provided in the validation notice for disputing the debt.  The
judge held that the instruction to call to notify the debt
collector that the debt has been paid does not overshadow the
validation notice.  Judge Shipp thus concluded that the
correspondence does not leave the least sophisticated consumer
uncertain as to his rights under the FDCPA and therefore does not
violate section 1692g.

Rosa also alleged that the correspondence violates section
1692e(10).  Judge Shipp, however, found that Rosa failed to point
to any basis for his claim under section 1692e(10) that is
distinct from his claim under section 1692g.

opinion is available at https://is.gd/ecKmNW from Leagle.com.

GARDEN CITY, KS: Court Dismisses "Market" Suit
----------------------------------------------
Judge J. Thomas Marten granted the defendant's motion to dismiss
the case captioned JADA J. MARKET, Individually and on behalf of a
class of others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. CITY OF GARDEN
CITY, KANSAS, Defendant, Case No. 6:16-cv-01053-JTM-GEB (D. Kan.).

Jada Market brought the action under 42 U.S.C. section 1983,
claiming Garden City deprived her of the constitutional right to
due process of law.  She alleged the City did so through an
ordinance that imposed a mandatory minimum sentence for driving
under the influence of alcohol (DUI) that was higher than the
minimum sentence provided for by Kansas statute.  Market contended
this was unlawful because the City did not first adopt a charter
ordinance giving it the right to vary from state law.  She sought
damages and other relief on behalf of herself and a class of
others impacted by the same or similar ordinances in Garden City.

In dismissing the case, Judge Marten concluded that the court has
no jurisdiction over Market's claim for declaratory relief because
she was inviting the court to review and reject the municipal
court judgments against her.  Further, Judge Marten  found that
Market did not allege that the sentence of which she complains has
been reversed on appeal or otherwise declared invalid.  The judge
thus held that Market's claim for damages under section 1983 must
be dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be
granted.

order is available at https://is.gd/lHXIbc from Leagle.com.

GENERAL MILLS: Sued Over Glyphosate-Contaminated Products
---------------------------------------------------------
MARY WOLOSYZN, on behalf of herself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. GENERAL MILLS, INC., the Defendant,
Case No. 0:16-cv-02869 (D. Minn., Aug. 24, 2016), seeks relief
including refunds to purchasers for falsely advertised products
and a court-ordered corrective advertising campaign to inform the
public of the true nature of General Mills' glyphosate-
contaminated Products.

The Defendant allegedly advertises and promotes its Nature Valley
Products as "Made with 100% Natural Whole Grain Oats". These
claims are false, misleading, and deceptive. The Products at issue
do not comprise "100% natural whole grain oats," but instead
contain the chemical glyphosate, a potent biocide, probable human
carcinogen, and human endocrine disruptor, with detrimental health
effects that are still becoming known.

Specifically, the Products at issue1 include, but are not limited
to:

a. Crunchy granola bars (Oats 'n Honey, Peanut Butter, Maple Brown
Sugar, Vanilla Almond Nut & Seed, Coconut, Pecan, and other
varieties);

b. Trail Mix chewy granola bars (Fruit & Nut, Dark Chocolate &
nut, and other varieties); c. Sweet & Salty Nut granola bars
(Peanut, Almond, and other varieties);

d. Breakfast Biscuits (Honey, Blueberry, Lemon Poppy Seed, and
other varieties);

Biscuits (with Almond Butter, with Peanut Butter, and other
varieties);

f. Oatmeal Squares (Blueberry, Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Brown
Sugar, Banana Bread & Dark Chocolate, and other varieties);

g. Oatmeal Bars (Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Brown Sugar, and other
varieties); and

h. Oatmeal Bistro Cups (Brown Sugar Pecan, Apple Cinnamon Almond,
and other varieties) (collectively, "Nature Valley" or the
"Products")

GREEN DOT: Court Dismisses "Hopkins" Suit Over EFT Cards
--------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned MARGARET HOPKINS, individually and on behalf
of a class of similarly situated individuals, Plaintiff, v. GREEN
DOT CORPORATION, GREEN DOT BANK d/b/a BONNEVILLE BANK or GO BANK,
WAL-MART STORES, INC., WALGREEN CO., DOLLAR TREE STORES, INC.,
FAMILY DOLLAR, INC., and CVS PHARMACY, INC., Defendants, No. 5:16-
CV-365-DAE (W.D. Tex.), Judge David Alan Ezra issued these orders:

     -- granting the motion to dismiss filed by the defendants,
        Green Dot Corporation, Green Dot Bank, d/b/a Bonneville
        Bank or Go Bank, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., Walgreen Co.,
        Dollar Tree Stores, Inc., Family Dollar, Inc., and CVS
        Pharmacy, Inc.;

     -- denying the motion for leave to amend complaint filed by
        the plaintiff, Margaret Hopkins; and

     -- denying as moot Hopkins' motion for summary judgment.

The lawsuit arose out of electronic funds transfer (EFT) cards,
one being the Green Dot MoneyPak card, sold by Green Dot Bank, an
FDIC member bank and wholly-owned subsidiary of Green Dot
Corporation.  Hopkins, who is 83-years old, claimed that she fell
victim to a fraudulent scheme when, in March 2014, she sent money
using MoneyPak cards to an unknown caller pretending to be her
grandson.  Hopkins reported the loss to Green Dot, but was unable
to recover her money.

On March 4, 2016, Hopkins brought suit against the defendants,
alleging causes of action under the Texas Deceptive Trade
Practices-Consumer Protection Act (DTPA), and under a theory of
negligent misrepresentation.  She sought damages to recover her
economic losses, compensatory damages for the fear and distress
she has suffered as a result of the fraud, punitive damages under
the DTPA, and attorney's fees.

Hopkins further sought to institute these claims in a class action
on behalf of all those individuals who have fallen victim to
similar scams after purchasing Green Dot EFT cards.  On behalf of
the putative class, Hopkins sought to recover a maximum damages
award of $60,000,000.

The defendants argued that the retail defendants other than
Wal-Mart must be dismissed because Hopkins did not purchase a
MoneyPak card at any of these retailers, and lacks standing to
bring suit against them.

Judge Ezra found that Hopkins set forth no legally sound method by
which she may establish standing against the retail defendants
other than Wal-Mart.  The judge explained that the failure to
allege the "irreducible constitutional minimum of standing,"
requires the court to dismiss Walgreens, Dollar Tree, Family
Dollar, and CVS from suit and thus, they were dismissed without
prejudice.

The defendants also argued that Hopkins has failed to establish
that she is a "consumer" under the DTPA, and that the defendants'
actions were not the "producing cause" of her damages.

Judge Ezra found that Hopkins has sufficiently pled that the
defendants committed a variety of false, misleading, and deceptive
acts under section 17.46(b) of the DTPA.  However, the judge also
found that Hopkins failed to plead that she is a consumer, and
further failed to plead that any of the defendants' false or
misleading acts was a "producing cause" of her damages.
Accordingly, Judge Ezra dismissed Hopkins' DTPA claims without
prejudice.

The defendants further argued that Hopkins failed to state a claim
for negligent misrepresentation because she has failed to allege
actual and justifiable reliance upon any representation made by
Green Dot, and has further failed to allege causation.

Judge Ezra held that Hopkins has failed to plead that the
defendants made any direct, affirmative assertions, or that her
losses occurred as a result of direct reliance upon any such
assertion.  Accordingly, the judge concluded that Hopkins has
failed to state a claim for negligent misrepresentation, and this
claim was dismissed without prejudice.

Judge Ezra also dismissed the plaintiff's motion to amend, finding
that the proposed amended complaint suffers from many of the same
deficiencies in the original complaint.

Finally, Judge Ezra denied as moot Hopkins' motion for summary
judgment on the issue of the defendants' sixth affirmative defense
regarding the DTPA claim, because the DTPA claim has been
dismissed.

LEE COUNTY, FL: Court Dismisses "Young" Suit

BOURGESS, Officer, FNU BELLIUS, Officer, and FNU LOPEZ, Officer,
Defendants, Case No. 2:16-cv-581-FtM-99CM (M.D. Fla.).

Each plaintiff is an inmate or former inmate at the Lee County
Jail in Fort Myers, Florida.  The 48-page amended complaint
generally argued that inmates at the Lee County Jail are subjected
to cruel and unusual punishment and other constitutional
violations.  The plaintiffs sought injunctive relief; three
million dollars in compensatory damages; one million dollars in
punitive damages; ten thousand dollars in nominal damages for each
plaintiff; and declaratory relief.  Plaintiff Michael George
Young, Jr. was the proposed representative of the class action.
Young filed a motion to proceed in forma pauperis.

Judge Steele found that the amended complaint represents a
confusing mixture of allegations, relevant facts, irrelevant
facts, disjointed narrative, and conclusory accusations.  The
plaintiffs did not name a single defendant in the body of the
complaint, much less associate him or her with any specific claim.
"It is the type of pleading that renders it impossible for a
defendant to answer and must be dismissed under Rule 8 for that
reason," the judge said.

Judge Steele also found that the plaintiffs failed to establish
any of the conditions under Rule 23(a) or (b) of the Federal Rules
of Civil Procedure.

The dismissal is without prejudice to each named plaintiff filing
his own complaint along with a motion to proceed in forma
pauperis.

MAGGIES PARATRANSIT: "Alfonso" Suit Sent to Arbitration
-------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned ALAN ALFONSO, on behalf of himself And all
others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. MAGGIES PARATRANSIT
CORP., Defendant, No. 16-CV-0363 (PKC)(LB) (E.D.N.Y.), Judge
Pamela K. Chen granted the defendant's motion to compel
arbitration and stayed the case pending arbitration.

Between February 2015 and April 2016, Alan Alfonso was employed as
a driver for Maggies Paratransit Corporation, a business engaged
in the transportation of disabled individuals.  Alfonso brought a
putative collective and class action under the Fair Labor
Standards Act (FLSA) and the New York Labor Law (NYLL) against
Maggies for failure to pay for all hours worked and overtime to
Alfonso and all similarly situated employees.

Maggies contended that Alfonso's claims are subject to mandatory
arbitration pursuant to an underlying collective bargaining
agreement (CBA) between Maggies and Alfonso's union
representative, and moved to compel arbitration on that basis.  In
opposing Maggies' motion, Alfonso argued that the arbitration
provision in question constitutes an impermissible waiver of his
federally protected rights, and is thus unenforceable.

Judge Chen held that the mere existence of a provision in a
collective bargaining agreement that confers unfettered discretion
on the union in deciding which claims to arbitrate -- without any
showing that the union, in fact, exercised that discretion to
block arbitration of an employee's claims and left him without
recourse -- is enough for the court to find a substantive waiver.
Judge Chen found that the appropriate course of action is to grant
Maggies' motion to compel arbitration, while permitting Alfonso to
seek further relief from the court should he later find himself
precluded from arbitrating his claims.

Judge Chen also rejected Alfonso's second argument with respect to
the CBA's Articles 13.1 and 13.6 effectively shortening the FLSA
statute of limitations.  The judge found this challenge is
premature because Alfonso has not demonstrated that he has been
precluded from submitting a grievance on the basis of the Article
13.6 time-bar.  Thus, Judge Chen concluded that there is no basis
at this time to find that the statute of limitations for Alfonso's
FLSA claims has been improperly shortened.

Judge Chen also rejected Alfonso's argument that the CBA is
unconscionable because he had to accept it in order to remain
employed by Maggies, or because it requires the parties to split
the cost of arbitration and arbitration is prohibitively expensive
for the plaintiff.  The judge explained that Alfonso misread the
plain language of the arbitration agreement, which states --
unambiguously -- that the cost of arbitration shall be shared by
"[t]he Employer and the Union," and not the employer and employee.

Judge Chen additionally found a stay appropriate in light of the
possibility that Alfonso may require further redress from the
court.

MDL 1566: Williams, El Paso and Xcel Not Cleared from Suit
----------------------------------------------------------
In the case, In re WESTERN STATES WHOLESALE NATURAL GAS ANTITRUST
LITIGATION, REORGANIZED FLI, INC., Plaintiff, v. WILLIAMS
COMPANIES, INC. et al., Defendants, No. 2:03-cv-01431-RCJ-PAL, MDL
No. 1566, No. 2:05-cv-01331-RCJ-PAL (D. Nev.), District Judge
Robert C. Jones issued an order denying Motion for Entry of
Judgment for release of three moving Defendants which were not
listed in the First or Second Settlement Agreements.  Those three
Defendants are Williams Merchant Services, Company, Inc.; El Paso
Corporation; and Xcel Energy Inc.

The Court ordered that the Defendants may submit a new motion and
proposed judgment consistent with the Order or may ask the Court
to reconsider if it can show that the three named Defendants are
in fact settled with Plaintiffs or are listed in the First or
Second Settlement Agreements by different names.

The case pertains to various consolidated cases arising out from
the energy crisis of 2000-2002. Plaintiffs (retail buyers of
natural gas) allege that Defendants (natural gas traders)
manipulated the price of natural gas by reporting false
information to price indices published by trade publications and
engaging in wash sales.

In 2003, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ("JPML")
transferred seven class action cases from various districts in
California to this District under 28 U.S.C. Sec. 1407 as
Multidistrict Litigation ("MDL") Case No. 1566, assigning Judge
Pro to preside. Since then, the JPML has transferred in several
more actions from various districts throughout the United States.
Between 2003 and 2015, Judge Pro ruled on many motions to remand,
to dismiss, and for summary judgment. He also approved several
class settlements. Several parties settled on their own. One or
more of the cases have been to the Court of Appeals twice and to
the Supreme Court once.

In 2007, the Court of Appeals reversed several dismissals under
the filed rate doctrine and remanded for further proceedings. In
2013, the Court of Appeals reversed several summary judgment
orders, ruling that the Natural Gas Act did not preempt state law
anti-trust claims and that certain Wisconsin- and Missouri-based
Defendants should not have been dismissed for lack of personal
jurisdiction. The Supreme Court granted certiorari as to
preemption under the Natural Gas Act and affirmed. The case was
soon thereafter reassigned to the Nevada District Court when Judge
Pro retired. The Court granted three motions to dismiss for lack
of personal jurisdiction, but the Court later reconsidered.

MDL 1840: Court Increases Atty's Fees in Costco Settlement
----------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned IN RE: MOTOR FUEL TEMPERATURE SALES
PRACTICES LITIGATION. (This Document Relates to All Cases), MDL
No. 1840, Case No. 07-MD-1840-KHV (D. Kan.), Judge Kathryn H.
Vratil sustained the plaintiffs' partial objection to the
Magistrate Judge Teresa J. James' February 17, 2016 report and
recommendation regarding the plaintiffs' request for attorneys'
fees under 29 class action settlements.  All other objections were
overruled.

Under the laws of 26 states (Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas,
California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky,
Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey,
New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South
Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia), the District of
Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam, the plaintiffs alleged various
claims based on the defendants' practice of selling motor fuel for
a specified price per gallon without disclosing or adjusting for
temperature, and without disclosing the effect of temperature on
motor fuel.

On February 17, 2016, Magistrate Judge Teresa J. James issued a
report and recommendations regarding the plaintiffs' request for
attorneys' fees under 29 class action settlements.  The Magistrate
Judge found that under all of the settlements, counsel are
entitled to recover attorneys' fees and costs.

As to Costco, Judge James found that $3,800,000 constitutes a
reasonable amount for attorneys' fees, expenses and class
representative incentive payments.  As to the remaining
settlements, Judge James found that the amounts to which the
parties agreed are reasonable.  Specifically, under the non-Costco
automatic temperature compensation (ATC) settlements, Judge James
recommended total attorneys' fees of $7,758,000.  Under the
Refiner Settlements, Judge James recommended total attorneys' fees
of $7,189,800

The plaintiffs objected that, for the Costco settlement, the
recommended fee is unreasonably low and urged the court to
increase it to $4,000,000.  The court agreed with the plaintiffs
that $4,000,000 is a reasonable fee.

MDL 2669: Court Allows Limited Discovery in Data Breach Case
------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, IN RE ASHLEY MADISON CUSTOMER DATA SECURITY BREACH
LITIGATION, MDL No. 2669 (E.D. Mo.), District Judge John A. Ross
ordered the Defendants to complete discovery responses as directed
by the Plaintiffs for purposes of addressing the issue likely to
be raised in the Defendants' contemplated motion to stay and
compel arbitration.

The Court says the Plaintiffs are entitled to full and complete
discovery on the question of arbitrability as it relates to the 18
named Plaintiffs during the time period they were accessing the
Ashley Madison web site.

The Court, however, finds that the Plaintiffs seeking to discover
all of the the variations of the website's Terms and Conditions as
they evolved over time goes beyond the bounds of the limited
discovery contemplated for purposes of the Defendants' intended
motions. Thus, the Court only granted the Plaintiffs' Motion to
Compel Discovery in part.

MEYERKORD & MEYERKORD: Court Narrows Claims in "Pavone" Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned ANTONIO PAVONE, on behalf of himself and all
others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. MEYERKORD & MEYERKORD,
LLC, LEXISNEXIS RISK SOLUTIONS, INC., and IYETEK, LLC, Defendants,
Case No. 15 C 1539 (N.D. Ill.),  Judge Amy J. St. Eve granted in
part, without prejudice, and denied in part, the motion to dismiss
filed by LexisNexis Risk Solutions, Inc. (LNRS) and iyeTek, LLC.

On February 26, 2016, Antonio Pavone filed a three-count Third
Amended Class Action Complaint against Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC,
LexisNexis Risk Solutions, Inc. (LNRS), and iyeTek, LLC for
violating the Driver's Privacy Protection Act (DPPA) and the Fair
Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

LNRS and iyeTek moved to dismiss under Federal Rule of Civil
Procedure 12(b)(6).

In Count II, Pavone alleged that LNRS and iyeTek violated the DPPA
because they resold his information -- without his express consent
-- to the law firm Meyerkord for advertising purposes.  Judge St.
Eve found that Pavone has alleged a plausible claim for relief
under the federal pleading standards.

Nevertheless, the LNRS and iyeTek argued that the vehicular
accident information at issue is expressly exempted from the
DPPA's definition of "personal information," and therefore, their
conduct in reselling this information was permissible.  Judge St.
Eve disagreed, finding that LNRS and iyeTek have failed to
establish a good reason for the court to depart from the plain
meaning in the DPPA that excludes information about an accident
from the definition of "personal information," but not the
personal information included in accident reports like a driver's
address.

In Count III of the Third Amended Class Action Complaint, Pavone
alleged LNRS violated section 1681g(a)(1) of the FCRA because
after he sent LNRS written requests for a copy of his complete
file, LNRS failed to send him his complete file, including all
information it assembles, such as his motor vehicle records and
the name of the entities to whom it sells consumer information.

In its motion to dismiss, LNRS argued that Pavone's section
1681g(a)(1) claim fails as a matter of law because the FCRA
applies only to "consumer reports" prepared by a "consumer
reporting agency."

Judge St. Eve found that Pavone did not allege that the
information underlying his accident report was used or expected to
be used for a specified purpose under the FCRA.  Accordingly, the
judge concluded that Pavone has failed to state a plausible claim
for relief under the federal pleading standards.  Judge St. Eve
therefore granted LNRS's motion to dismiss Count III without
prejudice and granted Pavone leave to amend his FCRA claim keeping
in mind counsel's Rule 11 obligations.

MONEYMUTUAL LLC: Denial of Bid to Dismiss "Rilley" Suit Affirmed
----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned Scott Rilley, et al., Respondents, v.
MoneyMutual, LLC, Appellant, No. A14-1307 (Minn.), the Supreme
Court of Minnesota affirmed the lower court's finding that
specific personal jurisdiction existed over MoneyMutual, LLC.

The respondents filed a class-action complaint alleging that
MoneyMutual matched respondents with payday lenders that were
unlicensed in Minnesota.  The complaint also alleged that the
terms of the payday loans respondents received were illegal under
Minnesota's payday-lending statutes.  The respondents also claimed
that MoneyMutual's website and advertising contained
misrepresentations that violated Minnesota's consumer protection
statutes.  Finally, the complaint alleged that MoneyMutual
unjustly enriched itself; that MoneyMutual participated in a civil
conspiracy; and that MoneyMutual aided and abetted unlicensed
lenders in making illegal loans to Minnesota residents.

MoneyMutual moved to dismiss the complaint for lack of personal
jurisdiction.  The respondents argued that MoneyMutual has three
categories of contacts with Minnesota: (1) emails sent to
Minnesota residents, (2) television advertisements that appeared
in Minnesota, and (3) Google AdWords advertisements that targeted
the Minnesota market.

The district court denied MoneyMutual's motion to dismiss.
MoneyMutual appealed, claiming that the district court erred when
it concluded that it could exercise specific personal jurisdiction
over MoneyMutual based on MoneyMutual's email correspondence with
Minnesota residents and advertising in Minnesota.

The court of appeals affirmed the decision of the district court.

Acting upon MoneyMutual's petition for review, the Supreme Court
of Minnesota held that while MoneyMutual's television
advertisements are not relevant contacts for the purpose of
minimum contacts analysis, MoneyMutual's emails to respondents and
its use of Google AdWords advertising specific to Minnesota,
support the conclusion that sufficient minimum contacts exist for
the exercise of personal jurisdiction over MoneyMutual.

Additionally, the Supreme Court also held that subjecting
MoneyMutual to suit in a Minnesota forum is reasonable and
consistent with traditional notions of fair play and substantial
justice.

As a result, the Supreme Court concluded that the district court
did not err when it denied MoneyMutual's motion to dismiss for
lack of personal jurisdiction.

NABORS INDUSTRIES: Miami Employees' Retirement Trust Suit Tossed
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Court of Chancery of Delaware has entered an order dismissing
the case, CITY OF MIAMI GENERAL EMPLOYEES' AND SANITATION
EMPLOYEES' RETIREMENT TRUST, on behalf of itself and on behalf of
all others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. JERRY M. COMSTOCK,
JR., as Independent Executor of the Estate of Joshua E. Comstock,
RANDALL C. MCMULLEN, DARREN M. FRIEDMAN, ADRIANNA MA, MICHAEL
ROEMER, C. JAMES STEWART, III, H.H. "TRIPP" WOMMACK, III, THEODORE
"TED" MOORE, NABORS INDUSTRIES LTD., NABORS RED LION LIMITED, and
MORGAN STANLEY & CO. LLC, Defendants, C.A. No. 9980-CB (Del. Ch.).

The case involves a stockholder challenge to the merger of C&J
Energy Services, Inc. and a subsidiary of Nabors Industries Ltd.
that held its completion and production services business.  On
November 25, 2014, the court issued a preliminary injunction
enjoining the transaction from closing until after C&J solicited
alternative proposals to purchase C&J during a 30-day period.  On
December 19, the Supreme Court reversed that order.  In March
2015, after receiving the approval of approximately 97.6% of the
shares of C&J stock that voted, the transaction closed.

Seven months after the closing, the plaintiff amended its
complaint to assert claims seeking damages for breaches of
fiduciary duty against the members of the C&J board and certain of
its officers challenging their conduct in deciding to enter the
Nabors transaction in the first place and in carrying out the
court-ordered solicitation process, and challenging for the first
time various disclosures in the proxy that was disseminated to
C&J's stockholders before they voted to approve the transaction.
The plaintiff also sued Nabors and the financial advisor to the
special committee that ran the solicitation process, Morgan
Stanley & Co., for aiding and abetting the alleged breaches of
fiduciary duty.

The defendants moved to dismiss the amended complaint for failure
to state a claim for relief.  C&J also moved to recover
approximately $542,000 in damages against the bond that the
plaintiff posted to secure entry of the preliminary injunction
order.  The Court of Chancery of Delaware granted both motions.

As to the first motion, the court concluded that the plaintiff's
claims for post-closing damages against C&J's directors and
officers are subject to the business judgment presumption under
the Delaware Supreme Court's decision in Corwin v. KKR Financial
Holdings LLC because of the legal effect of the stockholder vote,
and that judicial review of the plaintiff's fiduciary duty claims
(and related aiding and abetting claims) thus ends there.  The
court explained that this conclusion follows from two subsidiary
determinations: that the plaintiff has failed to plead facts
sufficient to demonstrate that the C&J stockholder vote was not
fully informed, and that the plaintiff has not alleged facts
showing that the challenged transaction, which was approved by a
majority of disinterested and independent directors, should be
subject to entire fairness review.

With respect to the second motion, the court concluded that C&J is
entitled to a rebuttable presumption that it may recover its
damages against the injunction bond, which consist primarily of
the costs of legal and financial advisors that provided assistance
during the court-ordered solicitation process, and that the
plaintiff has failed to demonstrate circumstances warranting a
deviation from this presumption.  Thus, the court held that C&J is
entitled to its requested damages.

SAFECO INSURANCE: Must Defend Against "Engle", Day Air Cleared
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the case styled, RAYMOND ENGLE, Plaintiff, v. UHAUL, et al.,
Defendants, Case No. 3:16-cv-27 (S.D. Ohio), Magistrate Judge
Michael J. Newman issued a report and recommendation:

     -- granting Defendant Day Air Insurance LLCs' motion to
        dismiss claims for lack of subject matter jurisdiction;

     -- denying, as moot, the motions to dismiss filed by other
        defendants Safeco Insurance Casualty Company of Illinois
        and Eskenazi Health;

     -- denying, as moot, plaintiff's motion for default
        judgment;

     -- denying, as moot, plaintiff's remaining motions,
        specifically, his motion to strike Safeco's motion to
        dismiss, his motion to appoint counsel, and his motion
        to amend his complaint to assert class action claims;

     -- dismissing plaintiff's complaint;

     -- denying plaintiff in forma pauperis status on appeal; and

     -- terminating the case on the court's docket.

Judge Newman said an appeal of any Order adopting Judge Newman's
Report and Recommendation would not be taken in good faith and
therefore denied the Plaintiff leave to appeal.

The case arises from an automobile accident that occurred on or
about January 15, 2015 in Indiana when an UHaul vehicle -- driven
by an unidentified person -- crossed the center line and hit the
Plaintiff in the driver's side front fender. The Plaintiff alleges
serious injury arising from the automobile accident and likewise,
alleges an improper treatment at the Eskenazi Health Center and
the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Dayton, Ohio, asserting a federal
claim on the matter.

The Court concluded that there is no diversity of citizenship
amongst the parties and declares no jurisdiction of the case.
Furthermore, the Court identified that the Plaintiff failed to
allege a claim under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
("FDCPA"), which could be a basis for federal question
jurisdiction.

The Court noted that pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b), any party
may serve and file specific, written objections to the proposed
findings and recommendations within 14 days after being served
with the Report and Recommendation. In the case, the period is
extended to seven days because the Report and Recommendation is
being served by one of the methods of service listed in Fed. R.
Civ. P. 5(b)(2)(C), (D), (E), or (F), and may be extended further
by the Court on timely motion for an extension.

STANDARD MORTGAGE: Court Dismisses "Robinson" RICO Suit
-------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned JORDELLA ROBINSON, INDIVIDUALLY AND AS A
REPRESENTATIVE OF A CLASS OF SIMILARLY SITUATED BORROWERS v.
STANDARD MORTGAGE CORPORATION and STANDARD MORTGAGE INSURANCE
AGENCY, INC., SECTION "R" (2), Civil Action No. 15-4123 (E.D.
La.), Judge Sarah S. Vance granted the defendants' motion to
dismiss Jordella Robinson's state law claims.

In her putative class action complaint, Robinson alleged that the
defendants colluded to manipulate the force-placed insurance
market by artificially inflating the amounts that borrowers pay
for coverage.  Robinson's complaint alleged violations of the
Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), conspiracy
to violate RICO, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and
fair dealing, and unjust enrichment.

On June 7, 2016, the court dismissed Robinson's RICO claim and
RICO conspiracy claim for failure to state a claim upon which
relief can be granted.  All that remained are Robinson's state law
claims for breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair
dealing, and unjust enrichment.

The defendants moved to dismiss Robinson's state law claims, and
requested in the alternative that, if any of Robinson's state law
claims survive the Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 12(b)(6) motion, the court
should dismiss the state law claims due to lack of jurisdiction
under 28 U.S.C. section 1367(c).

Judge Vance declined to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over
Robinson's state law claims and granted the defendants' motion to
dismiss for lack of jurisdiction.  The judge found that Robinson's
federal claims have been dismissed, satisfying section 1367(c)(3).
The judge also stated that, in terms of novelty and complexity of
state law, the parties have not cited any Louisiana case or
statute governing the claims asserted on the specific facts at
issue here, and the parties vigorously disputed the merits of
Robinson's claims.

Further, Judge Vance noted that the court has not invested
substantial judicial resources in the supplemental claims, the
trial date is not imminent, and any work the parties have already
done can be utilized in state court.  Finally, the judge pointed
out that it cannot be said that requiring the parties, all
Louisiana citizens, to litigate in Louisiana state court would be
unfair or inconvenient.  The Court also said that because the
court no longer has jurisdiction over the case, all remaining
pending motions were denied as moot.

STANFORD UNIVERSITY: "Burns" Suit Consolidated in MDL 2492
----------------------------------------------------------
David Burns, Individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. Stanford University, Pac-12
Conference, and National Collegiate Athletic Association, the
Defendants, Case No. 4:16-cv-03805, was transferred from the U.S.
District Court for the Northern California, to the U.S. District
Court for the Northern District of Illinois - (Chicago). The
Northern District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 1:16-cv-08579 to
the proceeding.

The Burns case is being consolidated with MDL 2492 in re: National
Collegiate Athletic Association Student-Athlete Concussion Injury
Litigation. The MDL was created by Order of the United States
Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on December 18, 2013.
The actions before the Panel seek medical monitoring for putative
classes of former student athletes at NCAA-member schools who
allege they suffered concussions. Plaintiffs allege that the NCAA
concealed information about the risks of the long-term effects of
concussion injuries. Opponents to centralization argue, inter
alia, that (1) the putative classes and claims alleged in these
actions do not sufficiently overlap; and (2) given the small
number of actions pending, alternatives to centralization are
preferable. In its December 18, 2013 Order, the MDL Panel found
that the actions in this MDL involve common questions of fact, and
that centralization in the Northern District of Illinois will
serve the convenience of the parties and witnesses and promote the
just and efficient conduct of the litigation. These actions share
factual questions relating to allegations against the NCAA
stemming from injuries sustained while playing sports at NCAA-
member institutions, including damages resulting from the
permanent long-term effects of concussions. Presiding Judges in
the MDL is Hon. John Z. Lee, United States District Judge. The
lead case is 1:13-cv-09116.

Stanford University is one of the world's leading research and
teaching institutions. It is located in Stanford, California.

TALEN ENERGY: Defending Suits Over Riverstone Merger Deal
---------------------------------------------------------
Talen Energy Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the "Company"),
on June 2, 2016, entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the
"Merger Agreement") with RPH Parent LLC, a Delaware limited
liability company ("RPH"), SPH Parent LLC, a Delaware limited
liability company ("SPH"), CRJ Parent LLC, a Delaware limited
liability company ("CRJ") (RPH, SPH and CRJ collectively referred
to as "Parent") and RJS Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation
and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent ("Merger Sub"), pursuant
to which Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company (the
"Merger"), with the Company continuing as the surviving
corporation on the terms and conditions set forth in the Merger
Agreement.

Talen Energy Corporation said in its Form 8-K Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 12, 2016, on
August 8, 2016, a purported stockholder of the Company commenced a
putative class action lawsuit in the Court of Chancery of the
State of Delaware captioned Manuel Abt, individually and on behalf
of all others similarly situated, Case No. 12638VCL. The complaint
names as defendants the Company, the Directors of the Company,
Riverstone Holdings LLC and its affiliates, Raven Power Holdings
LLC, Sapphire Power Holdings LLC, C/R Energy Jade, LLC, Parent and
Merger Sub (collectively, "Riverstone"). The complaint alleges,
among other things, that the Directors breached fiduciary duties
owed to the Company's public stockholders in approving the Merger.
The complaint also alleges that Riverstone is a de facto
controlling stockholder of the Company and breached fiduciary
duties owed to the Company and minority stockholders in the Merger
transaction.

Also on August 8, 2016, two purported stockholders of the Company
commenced a separate putative class action lawsuit in the Court of
Chancery of the State of Delaware captioned Wendell R. Hunt and
Kenneth J. Melchiorre, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Case No. 12634VCL.The complaint names as
defendants the Company, the Directors of the Company, Riverstone
Holdings LLC, Parent and Merger Sub. The complaint alleges, among
other things, that the Directors breached fiduciary duties owed to
the Company's public stockholders in approving the Merger. The
complaint also alleges that Riverstone, Parent and Merger Sub have
aided and abetted the Directors of the Company in the alleged
breaches of their fiduciary duties.

Both complaints seek to enjoin the Merger and also seek damages,
costs and attorney's fees.

The Company believes the allegations in each complaint are without
merit, and it intends to defend vigorously against all of the
allegations. However, at this time it is not possible to predict
the outcome of these matters or their effects on the Company or
the Merger.


TAMINCO US: Bid to Dismiss "Lombardozzi" Suit Denied in Part
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge M. Casey Rodgers denied in part and deferred, in part, the
defendant's motion to dismiss the case captioned DANNY
LOMBARDOZZI, MICHAEL DABNEY, and PATRICIA DABNEY, on behalf of
themselves and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v.
TAMINCO US INC., Defendant, Case No. 3:15cv533/MCR/EMT (N.D.
Fla.).

Taminco US Inc. is a Delaware corporation that owns and operates a
chemical manufacturing facility in Pace, Florida.  The plaintiffs
are three residential property owners in Pace, who have filed the
putative class action on behalf of themselves and other similarly
situated Pace residents.  The residents, all of whom live within
two miles of the Taminco's facility, alleged that noxious and
offensive odors emanating from the facility "physically invade"
their "homes, land, and property," thereby diminishing their full
use and enjoyment of the properties and decreasing the properties'
value.  The plaintiffs brought four claims against the Taminco:
(1) public nuisance; (2) private nuisance; (3) negligence; and (4)
gross negligence.  They sought certification of the lawsuit as a
class action, damages for the lost use and enjoyment of their
properties and for the diminution in property values, punitive
damages, and declaratory and injunctive relief.

Taminco moved the court under Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6) to dismiss
the plaintiffs' claims, or in the alternative, to abstain from
hearing the case based on the doctrine of primary jurisdiction.
Specifically, Taminco argued that the court should dismiss or stay
the plaintiffs' claims because this case involves "technical
matters related to air quality and air emissions" that are not
within the conventional knowledge of judges or jurors and require
the specialized expertise of the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (FDEP) to resolve.  Taminco also argued
that because the FDEP has been actively engaged in efforts to
control emissions from the Pace facility in the past, the court
should abstain from hearing this matter.  Taminco insisted that
the primary jurisdiction doctrine "is particularly applicable
here" because "the plaintiffs are apparently seeking injunctive
relief."  Lastly, Taminco argued that the plaintiffs' public
nuisance claim is "barred as a matter of law" because Taminco's
"Title V permit issued by [the FDEP]" insulates it from public
nuisance liability.

Judge Rodgers denied Taminco's motion to dismiss as to the claims
for private nuisance, negligence, and gross negligence for the
following reasons:

     -- First, the issues involved in adjudicating the
        plaintiffs' damages claims are not particularly within
        the FDEP's discretion.  The plaintiffs' claims are
        uniquely within the court's purview and, as such,
        abstention would be improper.

     -- Second, Taminco has not persuaded the court that the
        FDEP's expertise and specialized knowledge is essential
        in adjudicating the common law tort claims.  The
        questions that predominate the plaintiffs' damages claims
        are within the conventional experience of judges and
        juries, and do not require the expertise and specialized
        knowledge of the FDEP to resolve.

     -- Third, consistency and uniformity in the environmental
        regulatory scheme will not be promoted by application of
        the primary jurisdiction doctrine because the plaintiffs'
        claims do not implicate FDEP regulations or policy.

Judge Rodgers, however, found that the plaintiffs' public nuisance
claim for injunctive relief may require dismissal or abatement
pursuant to the primary jurisdiction doctrine because, depending
on the nature of the claim and the type of injunctive relief
sought, the claim may impermissibly intrude on Florida's
comprehensive regulatory scheme for environmental pollution.  The
judge gave the plaintiffs 14 days to either dismiss their public
nuisance claim or file an Amended Complaint which more
particularly states the nature of the injuries suffered by the
general public and the injunctive relie sought.

VERDE ENERGY: Bid to Stay "Richardson" Suit Denied
--------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned BRIAN RICHARDSON, et al., Plaintiffs. v.
VERDE ENERGY USA, INC., Defendant, Civil Action No. 15-6325 (E.D.
Pa.), Judge Lawrence F. Stengel denied the motion filed by the
defendant, Verde Energy USA, Inc., to stay proceedings pending
decisions from the United States Supreme Court in Spokeo, Inc. v.
Robins, 135 S.Ct. 1892, 191 L. Ed. 2D 762 (2015), and from the
Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in ACA Int'l v.
F.C.C., No. 15-cv-01211 (D.C. Cir. 2015).

The class action arose under the Telephone Consumer Protection
Act, which generally forbids telemarketers from contacting
prospective customers on cell phones by automatic telephone
dialing systems without their express written consent, and forbids
contacting consumers who have requested that calls stop.

The defendant, Verde Energy USA, operates an energy company that
purportedly offers consumers low priced electricity.  The amended
complaint alleged that Verde Energy utilizes a sophisticated
telephone dialing system to call individuals en masse promoting
its services, and that Verde Energy places phone calls to
consumers who never provided consent to call and to consumers
having no relationship with the defendant.

Verde Energy first asked for a stay of the action pending a
decision of the United States Supreme Court in Spokeo, Inc. v.
Robins.  Judge Stengel, however, found that the Supreme Court
issued its decision in Spokeo on May 16, 2016, and thus, the Verde
Energy's motion for a stay based on the pendency of that decision
is now moot.

Next, Verde Energy sought a stay pending the decision of the Court
of Appeals for the District of Columbia in ACA Int'l v. F.C.C.
Judge Stengel found that there is no telling when a decision in
that action would be forthcoming, that the harm to the plaintiff
in granting a stay is greater than any harm to the defendant if
the stay were denied, and finally, that judicial economy would not
be served by granting a stay.  Further, the judge stated that the
ACA decision cannot render the case moot because the impact the
ACA decision might have on the case is limited only to the scope
of the definition of an automatic telephone dialing system.

VIAL FOTHERINGHAM: Court Narrows Claims in Lott-Chea Suit
---------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned JANICE LOTT, on behalf of herself and all
others similarly situated; KANIKA CHEA, on behalf of herself and
all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. VIAL FOTHERINGHAM,
LLP, Defendant, No. 3:16-cv-00419-HZ (D. Or.), Judge Marco A.
Hernandez granted Vial Fotheringham, LLP's motion to dismiss
Kanika Chea's coercion claim with leave to amend, but denied
Vial's remaining motions to dismiss.

Janice Lott and Kanika Chea brought, among others, claims under
the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) against Vial,
alleging that Vial, in its role as debt collector, engaged in
abusive, deceptive, and unfair debt collection efforts when
attempting to collect overdue homeowner's association fees from
the plaintiffs.

Vial moved to dismiss several of the plaintiffs' claims.
Specifically, Vial contended that Lott has failed to state a claim
regarding her allegation that Vial threatened to foreclose on her
property without intending to foreclosure in violation of 15
U.S.C. section 1692e(5).  With respect to Chea, Vial contended
that her claim should be dismissed as time-barred under the
FDCPA's one year statute of limitations, and that Chea has failed
to state a claim regarding her allegation that Vial coerced her
into signing an agreement settling her outstanding debt.  In the
event that the plaintiffs' claims are not dismissed, Vial moved to
sever the plaintiffs, arguing that Lott and Chea are not properly
joined under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 20(a).

Judge Hernandez held that Lott's allegations regarding Vial's lack
of intent to follow through on its threats of foreclosure are
enough to survive Vial's motion to dismiss.  The judge found that
Lott has provided the requisite "short and plain statement of
[her] claim."

Judge Hernandez, however, dismissed Chea's coercion claim with
leave to amend, finding that Chea has not adequately established
the factual bases for her coercion claim, or explained under what
law that claim arises.

Judge Hernandez did not yet decide whether Chea's coercion claim,
should she choose to amend and resubmit that portion of the
complaint, is timely, until the court is able to assess the bases
for that claim with more specificity.  The judge, however, held
that Chea's remaining claims were filed within the statute of
limitations.

Judge Hernandez deferred ruling on Vial's motion to sever at this
time.

WELSPUN INDIA: "Abbott" Suit Alleges False Advertising

WEST COAST TOMATO: Court Narrows Claims in "Espinoza" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Thomas J. Whelan granted in part and denied, in part, West
Coast Tomato Growers, LLC's (WCTG) motion for summary judgment in
the case captioned ELISA VALERIO ESPINOZA, et al., Plaintiffs, v.
WEST COAST TOMATO GROWERS, LLC, Defendant, Case No. 14-CV-2984 W
(KSC) (S.D. Cal.).

WCTG is a California limited liability company that operates farms
"in or around" San Diego County.  WCTG employed all the plaintiffs
as tomato packers, sorters, and field workers.  The plaintiffs
alleged, among other things, that WCTG did not pay them for
working off-the-clock, did not pay overtime wages due, did not
provide itemized wage statements, did not permit legally required
meal periods, did not provide necessary tools for the work, did
not provide a safe working environment, did not provide necessary
safety devices, and did not provide drinking water.

The First Amended Complaint stated claims for: (1) wrongful
discharge in violation of public policy; (2) failure to pay
Adverse Effect Wage Rate (AEWR) due; (3) failure to pay all wages
due; (4) failure to pay minimum wage for all hours worked; (5)
failure to pay overtime wages; (6) failure to pay all wages due
upon termination; (7) failure to indemnify employees for necessary
expenditures; (8) failure to provide meal periods; (9) knowing and
intentional failure to provide accurate and complete itemized
earnings statements; (10) for violation of 29 U.S.C. section 1801
et seq.; (11) unlawful competition in violation of Cal. Bus &
Prof. Code section 17200 et seq.; and (12) for enforcement of
penalties pursuant to Cal. Labor Code section 2698 et seq.

WCTG moved for summary judgment.

Judge Whelan granted WCTG's motion to the extent the plaintiffs
sought indemnification for face shields.  The judge granted the
motion as to the plaintiffs Cipriano Capistran, Arturo Salgado
Manzano, and Lorenzo Lopez Pastrana on their claim for failure to
provide itemized statements.  Judge Whelan also granted the motion
as to the plaintiffs' claim under California's Unfair Competition
Law on any theory premised on a failure to maintain a safe and
healthy work environment.  The motion was otherwise denied.

WESTERN CONCRETE: Allbright's Bid to Dismiss in "Lozano" Granted
----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned CHRISTOPHER LOZANO and AUGUSTINE LOZA,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated,
Plaintiffs, v. WESTERN CONCRETE PUMPING, INC., CHUCK REED, and
BRETT REID, Defendants. v. CORBY ALLBRIGHT, Cross Defendant, No.
1:15-cv-1192-RP (W.D. Tex.), Judge Robert Pitman granted the
motion to dismiss filed by the cross-defendant, Corby Allbright.

Christopher Lozano and Augustine Loza filed suit against Western
Concrete Pumping, Inc., Chuck Reed, and Brettt Reid, on December
18, 2015, alleging collective action claims against the defendants
under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and class action claims
against the defendants under the Texas Labor Code (TLC) and Texas
common law.

On March 7, 2016, the defendants filed an answer to plaintiffs'
complaint and also filed a cross-claim against Corby Allbright,
who was not initially a party to the suit.  In their cross-claim,
the defendants alleged that Allbright became Vice President of
Western's Texas operations on April 5, 2012, that Allbright
"employed and managed Plaintiffs and similarly situated workers at
all times," and was an "employer" under both the FLSA and the TLC.
The defendants asserted that Allbright "is thus personally liable"
for the violations alleged by the plaintiffs.

On June 10, 2016, Allbright moved to dismiss the defendants' cross
claims against him for two primary reasons.  First, he asserted
that the defendants' causes of action related to the plaintiffs'
putative class action for federal and state wage and hour
violations must be dismissed because the defendants lack standing
to bring the claims, have failed to adequately allege that
Allbright is an employer under the FLSA, and that the Fifth
Circuit bars wage and hour claims for indemnification by employers
against employees.  Second, he argued that the remaining causes of
action are unrelated to the operative complaint filed by the
plaintiffs, and must be dismissed.

Judge Pitman concluded that the defendants have standing to bring
claims related to indemnification for the plaintiffs' claims
against Allbright, and that the defendants have adequately alleged
that Allbright was an employer under the FLSA, as well as  for
purposes of the TLC.

However, Judge Pitman concluded that the defendants' claims for
indemnification from liability arising out of the plaintiffs'
common law claims must be dismissed.  The judge found that these
claims were all premised on the defendants' agreement to pay the
plaintiffs wages in exchange for their labor, and are based in
contract, not tort.  "Further, Defendants are not alleged to be
vicariously liable for Allbright's actions -- Plaintiffs have
premised their common law claims on Defendants' actions.  Nor have
Defendants alleged any facts that would suggest Allbright could be
held liable by the Plaintiffs on their common law claims," the
judge said.

As to the plaintiffs' FLSA claims, Judge Pitman stated that other
courts have expressly addressed whether an employer may seek
indemnification for FLSA violations from another "employer" who is
also an employee under the FLSA and determined that they cannot.
Thus, the judge held that the defendants' claims which seek
contribution or indemnification from Allbright for alleged FLSA
violations must be dismissed.

Judge Pitman also similarly dismissed the defendants' claims
related to indemnification under the TLC.  The judge explained
that the Texas legislature did not provide for indemnification by
an employer under the statute, and indemnification is extremely
limited under Texas common law.

Particularly in light of the decision to dismiss the defendants'
claims against Allbright related to the plaintiffs' wage and hour
claims, Judge Pitman also held that the defendants' other claims
against Allbright must be dismissed because they are not part of
the same case or controversy brought by the plaintiffs.

WILHELMINA INTERNATIONAL: Motion to Dismiss "Shanklin" Underway
---------------------------------------------------------------
Wilhelmina International, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 12, 2016,
for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2016, that a judge has
reserved the decision on Wilhelmina's motion to dismiss the case
by former Wilhelmina model Alex Shanklin.

On October 24, 2013, a purported class action lawsuit was brought
against the Company by former Wilhelmina model Alex Shanklin and
others (the "Shanklin Litigation"), in New York State Supreme
Court (New York County) by the same lead counsel who represented
plaintiffs in a prior, now-dismissed action brought by Louisa
Raske (the "Raske Litigation"). The claims in the Shanklin
Litigation initially included breach of contract and unjust
enrichment allegations arising out of matters similar to the Raske
Litigation, such as the handling and reporting of funds on behalf
of models and the use of model images. Other parties named as
defendants in the Shanklin Litigation include other model
management companies, advertising firms, and certain advertisers.

On January 6, 2014, the Company moved to dismiss the Amended
Complaint in the Shanklin Litigation for failure to state a claim
upon which relief can be granted and other grounds, and other
defendants also filed motions to dismiss.

On August 11, 2014, the court denied the motion to dismiss as to
Wilhelmina and other of the model management defendants. Further,
on March 3, 2014, the judge assigned to the Shanklin Litigation
wrote the Office of the New York Attorney General bringing the
case to its attention, generally describing the claims asserted
therein against the model management defendants, and stating that
the case "may involve matters in the public interest." The judge's
letter also enclosed a copy of his decision in the Raske
Litigation, which dismissed that case. Plaintiffs have retained
substitute counsel, who has filed a Second and now Third Amended
Complaint.

Plaintiffs' Third Amended Complaint asserts causes of action for
alleged breaches of the plaintiffs' management contracts with the
defendants, conversion, breach of the duty of good faith and fair
dealing, and unjust enrichment. The Third Amended Complaint also
alleges that the plaintiff models were at all relevant times
employees, and not independent contractors, of the model
management defendants, and that defendants violated the New York
Labor Law in several respects, including, among other things, by
allegedly failing to pay the models the minimum wages and overtime
pay required thereunder, not maintaining accurate payroll records,
and not providing plaintiffs with full explanations of how their
wages and deductions therefrom were computed. The Third Amended
Complaint seeks certification of the action as a class action,
damages in an amount to be determined at trial, plus interest,
costs, attorneys' fees, and such other relief as the court deems
proper.

On October 6, 2015, Wilhelmina filed a motion to dismiss as to
most of the plaintiffs' claims, and oral argument on the motion
was heard by the Court in June 2016. The judge reserved decision
and it is not known when the decision will be issued.

The Company believes the claims asserted in the Third Amended
Complaint are without merit, and intends to continue to vigorously
defend the action.


WILHELMINA INTERNATIONAL: Court Stayed Pressley Litigation
----------------------------------------------------------
Wilhelmina International, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 12, 2016,
for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2016, that a purported
class action lawsuit was brought on June 6, 2016, against the
Company by former Wilhelmina model Shawn Pressley and others (the
"Pressley Litigation"), in New York State Supreme Court (New York
County) by the same counsel representing the plaintiffs in the
Shanklin Litigation, and asserting identical, although more
recent, claims as those in the Shanklin Litigation. On June 14,
2016, the Court stayed all proceedings in the Pressley Litigation
until a decision is issued on the motion to dismiss in the
Shanklin Litigation.  The Company believes the claims asserted in
the Pressley Litigation are without merit, and intends to
vigorously defend the action.


WILHELMINA INTERNATIONAL: Settlement Talks Ongoing in "Betancourt"
------------------------------------------------------------------
Wilhelmina International, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 12, 2016,
for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2016, that settlement
discussions are ongoing in the lawsuit by Angel Betancourt.

On August 20, 2015, a lawsuit was brought against the Company and
the Company's former Chief Accounting Officer by a former
employee, Angel Betancourt. The lawsuit alleges that the plaintiff
was discriminated against during his time of employment and upon
his termination. The lawsuit further alleges that the plaintiff
was not compensated due to misclassification by the Company under
the federal Fair Labor Standards Act.  The proceeding is in the
preliminary stages, and by agreement with the Plaintiff further
action in the lawsuit has been abated pending ongoing settlement
discussions. The Company expects that the lawsuit will be resolved
within the limits of the Company's insurance coverage.


WILLIAMS-SONOMA INC: Case Management Conference Continued
---------------------------------------------------------
In the case, WILLIAM RUSHING, Individually and on Behalf of all
Others Similarly Situated, Assigned to the Plaintiff, v. WILLIAMS-
SONOMA, INC., a Delaware corporation, also d/b/a Williams-Sonoma
and Williams-Sonoma Home, et al., Defendants, Case No. 3:16-cv-
01421-WHO (N.D. Calif.), District Judge William H. Orrick granted
the parties' stipulation to continue the Initial Case Management
Conference scheduled for September 13, 2016.

The parties noted that the continuance of the Initial Case
Management Conference is for the parties' best interests and in
the interest of judicial economy, such that it would enable both
the parties and the Court to focus attention and resources on the
issues that will proceed in the litigation.

All previous time modifications of the case are:

     -- on March 29, 2016, the parties stipulated to extend
        Defendants' time to respond to the First Amended
        Complaint from March 30, 2016 to April 20, 2016;

     -- on May 5, 2016, pursuant to stipulation of the parties,
        the Court continued the June 21, 2016 Case Management
        Conference to September 6, 2016;

     -- on June 23, 2016, the parties stipulated to extend
        Defendants' time to respond to the Third Amended
        Complaint from June 23, 2016 to June 27, 2016; and

     -- on August 4, 2016, pursuant to stipulation of the
        parties, the Court continued the September 6, 2016 Case
        Management Conference to September 13, 2016.

The parties now agree that:

    -- Plaintiff shall file his amended complaint on September
       14, 2016;

    -- Defendants shall file a response on or before October 3,
       2016;

    -- If Defendants' response is an answer, the Initial Case
       Management Conference shall be continued to November 1,
       2016; and

    -- If Defendants' response is a motion to dismiss, the
       Initial Case Management Conference shall be continued to
       the first available date at least 30 days after the Court
       issues an order on Defendants' motion.

A copy of the Court's Order dated August 23, 2016 is available at
