BABCOCK LUMBER: Seeks to Certify Settlement Class in Walter Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
The parties in the lawsuit captioned MARY WALTER, ON BEHALF OF
HERSELF AND ALL OTHERS SIMILARLY SITUATED v. BABCOCK LUMBER, INC.,
A PENNSYLVANIA CORPORATION et al., CARL BORNTRAEGER, INDIVIDUALLY,
COURTNEY BORNTRAEGER, INDIVIDUALLY, AND R. JEFFREY KIMBALL,
INDIVIDUALLY, Case No. 2:16-cv-00523-CRE (W.D. Pa.), filed with
the Court their joint motion to certify settlement class,
preliminarily approve class settlement, approve class notice and
schedule final approval hearing.

The Parties consent to certification of a settlement class, which
is defined as any salaried employee, who was terminated by Babcock
on or after November 1, 2014 (rather having quit or retired)
without having been provided a retention or stay bonus.  The Class
is further divided into two subclasses: (1) those salaried
employees, who were terminated by Babcock and who did not receive
a position with one of the companies which bought the assets of
Babcock; and (2) those salaried employees, who were terminated by
Babcock and who did receive a position with one of the companies
which bought the assets of Babcock.

The Case was filed on April 22, 2016, stating a breach of contract
claim, an unjust enrichment claim and claim under the Pennsylvania
Wage Payment and Collection Law.

At their end of mediation, the parties reached a settlement,
subject to Court approval, that provided that the Defendants will
pay a total amount of $687,500 to settle all of the claims by the
Plaintiffs.  Plaintiff Mary Walter will receive a service
enhancement because of the considerable time and expense that she
has committed in bringing the action and will be paid $10,000.

Once attorneys' fees and costs are paid, and the amount is paid to
Ms. Walter, the remaining sums will be divided on a 60/40 basis
with 60% being paid to the class members, who did not receive job
offers and 40% being paid to the Plaintiffs, who received job
offers.

The average amount to be paid to the Plaintiffs, who did not
receive an offer of employment will be $6,530.  The average amount
to be paid to Plaintiffs, who received an offer of employment will
be $4,706.

CALIFORNIA FAIR: Faces "Hernandez" Suit Over Insurance Policy
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiff in the case captioned RAUL HERNANDEZ, the Plaintiff,
v. CALIFORNIA FAIR PLAN ASSOCIATION and DOES 1-100, inclusive, the
Defendants, Case No. BC635362 (Cal. Super. Ct., Sept. 27, 2016),
brings this action on his own behalf and pursuant to California
Code of Civil Procedure Section 382, on behalf of all persons
similarly situated.  The class that the plaintiff represents is
composed of:

   All California residents insured under an insurance policy
   issued by California Fair Plan Association who received a
   first party payment, or offer of payment, of a total or
   partial loss property claim for less than the applicable
   policy limits, wherein Fair Plan did not classify whether the
   loss was total or partial based upon whether there was a total
   destruction of the subject matter of the insurance as defined
   in Insurance Code section 1962, within the applicable statute
   of limitations period including any period of tolling.

The Plaintiff and the Class seek an order from the court for
restitution and/or disgorgement of profits in the form of policy
benefits withheld from payment as a result of the unlawful
practices.

The complaint says Fair Plan has consistently undervalued payouts
to insureds that suffered a partial loss of their property due to
fire or other causes. Plaintiff is one such insured. Despite
demand, Fair Plan has refused to properly classify the loss and
has indicated that even if it were to reclassify the loss, it
would apply an unlawful definition of "actual cash value" to the
loss, as a result of which it has undervalued the amount to which
Plaintiff is entitled and refused to pay Plaintiff the full amount
it is required to pay pursuant to California law.

Fair Plan provides fire insurance services.

During one or more workweeks, the Defendants did not pay Plaintiff
time and one half Plaintiff's regular rate of pay for overtime

GEORGIA: Faces Suit in Super. Ct. Over Misleading Ballot Language
-----------------------------------------------------------------
REVEREND TIMOTHY MCDONALD, KIMBERLY BROOKS, and DR. MELISSA LADD,
the Plaintiffs, v. NATHAN DEAL, in his official capacity as
Governor of State of Georgia, CASEY CAGLE, in his official
capacity as Lieutenant Governor of State of Georgia, and BRIAN
KEMP, in his official capacity as Secretary of State of Georgia,
the Defendants, Case No. 2016CV280611 (Ga. Super. Ct., Sep. 27,
2016), is a class action lawsuit on behalf of all Georgians
registered and eligible to vote in the November 8, 2016 election
and seeks a declaration that the November 8, 2016 ballot language
for the constitutional amendment regarding the so-called
"Opportunity School District" is affirmatively and
purposefully misleading.

The lawsuit also seeks to enjoin enforcement, if passed, of the
Amendment as it would be approved through affirmatively misleading
ballot language.

According to complaint, the Preamble language prescribed by the
Governor and adopted by the Constitutional Amendments Publication
Board (including two Defendants) contained language never adopted
by the Georgia General Assembly. The Defendants have brought in
the back door through the preamble false promises and
affirmatively misleading claims that the constitutional amendment
"provides greater flexibility and state accountability to fix
failing schools through increasing community involvement."

GMA INVESTMENTS: Certification of Class Sought in "Hoffman" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Robert L. Hoffman moves the Court to certify the class described
in the complaint of the lawsuit entitled ROBERT L. HOFFMAN,
Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. GMA
INVESTMENTS, LLC, d/b/a SUMMIT RECEIVABLES, Case No. 2:16-cv-
01333-DEJ (E.D. Wisc.), and further asks that the Court both stay
the Motion and to grant him (and the Defendant) relief from the
Local Rules setting automatic briefing schedules and requiring
briefs and supporting material to be filed with the Motion.

Damasco and decisions like it imposed significant burdens on the
Court and on Plaintiff's Counsel, the Plaintiff asserts, citing
Damasco v. Clearwire Corp., 662 F.3d 891 (7th Cir. 2011),
overruled, Chapman v. First Index, Inc., 796 F.3d 783, 787 (7th
Cir. 2015).

To avoid the risk of a defendant mooting a putative class
representative's individual stake in the litigation, the Seventh
Circuit in Damasco instructed plaintiffs to file a certification
motion with the complaint, along with a motion to stay briefing on
the certification motion until discovery could commence, Mr.
Hoffman states.  He asserts that he is obligated to move for class
certification to protect the interests of the putative class.

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

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

competing offer for the Company.

ILLINOIS: Brittaney Asks Ct. to Find DCFS Allegation 74 as Void
---------------------------------------------------------------
NICOLE P., BRITTANEY S., and DEONA W., individually and on behalf
of all others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v. ILLINOIS
DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES, and GEORGE
H. SHELDON in his capacity as DIRECTOR OF THE ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT
OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES, the Defendants, Case No.
2016CH12809 (Ill. Cir, Ct., Sept. 28, 2016), is a class action
against Defendants for their past, present, and continuing use of
a void DFCS rule, Allegation 74, against thousands of people in
Illinois, including the Plaintiffs, in violation of the Illinois
Administrative Procedure Act (the IAPA).

The complaint says, almost a year ago, the Court ruled in a final
order that Allegation 74 is void because it exceeds DFCS's
authority under the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act,
which defines and limits DFCS's authority to investigate child
abuse and neglect. Yet, Defendants have invoked and continue to
invoke that void rule to investigate and indicate thousands of
Illinois residents as child neglecters and to register them in a
"confidential" state database -- the State Central Register --
accessible to thousands of people, including doctors, schools,
courts, and certain employers. These investigations are traumatic
for their targets, and indication for child neglect under the void
rule has serious consequences for those individuals, including
harms to their reputations, professional and occupational
prospects, and family life.

The Defendants' use of the void Allegation 74 is contrary to a
final judgment of the Circuit Court of Cook County and a clear
violation of Plaintiffs' rights under the IAPA, says the
complaint. The Plaintiffs thus brought the case to put a stop to
Defendants' use of that void rule.

The Defendant is a state agency with headquarters in both
Springfield (Sangamon County), Illinois and Chicago (Cook County),
Illinois.

LG CORP: Amirnovin Files Suit Over Sherman Act Violation
--------------------------------------------------------
Andrew Amirnovin, individually on behalf of all other persons
similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. LG Corporation, LG Electronics
Inc., LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc., Display Co., Ltd., LG Display
America Inc., Samsung Group, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.,
Samsung Electronics America, Inc., Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.,
Defendants, Case No. 5:16-cv-05586 (N.D. Cal., September 30,
2016), seeks damages, pre-judgment and post-judgment interest on
the damages awarded, equitable relief, attorneys' fees and costs
of suit and such other and further relief for violation of Section
1 of the Sherman Act, California's Cartwright Act, and the
California Business and Professions Code.

Defendants are accused of fixing and suppressing compensation for
their employees, including their workforce in the United States
based on an internal agreement that LG and Samsung will not
recruit and/or directly hire each other's employees. Plaintiff
alleges that agreement is anticompetitive, imposing restrictions
on employee mobility, thereby depriving them of better job
opportunities at the other company. The agreement lowers the
salaries and benefits Defendants' employees would otherwise have
commanded, regardless of whether an employee seeks a job at a
Defendant or would be willing to switch jobs, because it reduces
salary competition between LG and Samsung.

The LG Group and the Samsung Group are California tech companies
operating in the Silicon Valley area, with parent companies in
Seoul, South Korea.

LUMBER LIQUIDATORS: "Goodling" Suit Consolidated in MDL 2743
------------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Louanne Goodling, an individual,
on behalf of herself and all others similarly situated, the
Plaintiff, v. Lumber Liquidators, Inc., the Defendant, Case No.
3:16-cv-01201, was transferred from the U.S. District Court for

Virginia Eastern District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 1:16-cv-
05007-AJT-TRJ to the proceeding.

The Goodling case is being consolidated with MDL 2743 in re:
Lumber Liquidators Chinese-Manufactured Flooring Durability
Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation. The MDL was created by
Order of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict
Litigation on October 4, 2016. These cases concern the sale and
marketing of Chinese-manufactured laminate flooring sold by
defendant Lumber Liquidators. Despite being marketed as
sufficiently durable for residential use, the Plaintiffs allege
that their laminate flooring scratches too easily and fails to
meet the advertised industry standard. In its October 4, 2016
Order, the MDL Panel found that the actions in this litigation
involve common questions of fact, and that centralization in the
Eastern District of Virginia will serve the convenience of the
parties and witnesses and promote the just and efficient conduct
of the litigation. All actions involve common factual questions
regarding the durability of Chinese-manufactured laminate flooring
sold by Lumber Liquidators under the "Dream Home" label,
particularly the issue of whether the laminates comply with the
allegedly warranted industry standard for use in residential
settings. Presiding Judge in the MDL is Hon. Anthony J. Trenga,
United States District Judge. The lead case is 1:16-md-02743-AJT-

MIDLAND CREDIT: "Merkovich" Suit Seeks Class Certification
----------------------------------------------------------
Patricia Merkovich and Patricia Pietraszewski move the Court to
certify the class described in the complaint of the lawsuit styled
PATRICIA MERKOVICH and PATRICIA PIETRASZEWSKI, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. MIDLAND CREDIT
MANAGEMENT, INC. and MIDLAND FUNDING, LLC, Case No. 2:16-cv-01334-
DEJ (E.D. Wisc.), and further asks that the Court both stay the
Motion and to grant them (and the Defendants) relief from the
Local Rules setting automatic briefing schedules and requiring
briefs and supporting material to be filed with the Motion.

Damasco and decisions like it imposed significant burdens on the
Court and on Plaintiff's Counsel, the Plaintiffs contend, citing
Damasco v. Clearwire Corp., 662 F.3d 891 (7th Cir. 2011),
overruled, Chapman v. First Index, Inc., 796 F.3d 783, 787 (7th
Cir. 2015).

To avoid the risk of a defendant mooting a putative class
representative's individual stake in the litigation, the Seventh
Circuit in Damasco instructed plaintiffs to file a certification
motion with the complaint, along with a motion to stay briefing on
the certification motion until discovery could commence, the
Plaintiffs said.  The Plaintiffs assert that they are obligated to
move for class certification to protect the interests of the
putative class.

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

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

PNC BANK: Court Denies Muhammad's Bid to Certify Two Classes
------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Joseph R. Goodwin entered a memorandum opinion and order
denying the Plaintiff's motion for class certification filed in
the lawsuit titled JAMES A. MUHAMMAD v. PNC BANK, N.A., Case No.
2:15-cv-16190 (S.D.W. Va.).  Judge Goodwin directs the Clerk of
Court to send a copy of the Order to counsel of record and any
unrepresented party.

In his complaint, Mr. Muhammad alleges violations of Section 46A-
2-128(d) of the West Virginia Code in relation to the speed pay
fees.  He contends that the speed pay fees violate Section 46A-2-
128(d) because the fees, which are incidental to his principal
obligation, are not authorized by agreement or by statute.  He
seeks to certify two classes:

   Class A: All West Virginia citizens at the time of the filing
            of this action who had or have consumer home loans
            serviced by Defendant PNC and who were charged
            Speedpay fees and are listed on Exhibit C.

   Class B: All West Virginia citizens at the time of the filing
            of this action who had or have consumer home loans
            serviced by Defendant PNC and who were charged
            document request fees and are listed on Exhibit C.

"The named plaintiff, Mr. Muhammad, is not a member of the defined
classes and therefore cannot represent the classes in this
action," Judge Goodwin opines.  Judge Goodwin wrote in the Order
that the Plaintiff has not cited, and the Court has not located,
any authority requiring a district court to rewrite a class
definition and redraw a class boundary submitted by the
plaintiff's counsel to drastically expand the class to encompass
individuals excluded by the plain terms of the proffered class
definition.

RENO'S INC: Court Nixes Bid for Certification in "Downard" Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Paul L. Maloney dismissed without prejudice the
Plaintiffs' motion for conditional certification filed in the
lawsuit titled JULIA DOWNARD AND VALORIE WASHBURN v. RENO'S INC.,
et al., Case No. 1:16-cv-00927-PLM-PJG (W.D. Mich.).

The Plaintiffs initiated the Lawsuit on July 22, 2016, and on
August 4, they filed a motion for pre-discovery conditional
certification of a collective action under the Fair Labor Standard
Act.  The Defendants timely filed their answer to the complaint.
The Plaintiffs, then, filed a first amended complaint on September
22.

When filed, an amended complaint supercedes the original
complaint, which becomes a nullity, Judge Maloney opined.
Relevant here, Judge Maloney stated, the First Amended Complaint
adds allegations relevant to the Plaintiffs' claim under the FLSA.
Hence, the Motion is dismissed without prejudice.

SLATER AND GORDON: Faces Class Action from Shareholders
-------------------------------------------------------
Joanna Crothers at ABC News reports that thousands of Slater and
Gordon shareholders will take part in a class action against the
high-profile law firm following allegations the company knew it
was in financial trouble.

According to the report, rival firm Maurice Blackburn is leading
the AUD250-million class action involving more than 3,000 people.

ABC relates that Andrew Watson from Maurice Blackburn said Slater
and Gordon misrepresented its financial prospects to the market
after it acquired a division in the UK company Quindells in
April 2015.

The value of Slater and Gordon shares plummeted and they reported
a net loss of AUD1.02 billion in August, but the firm promised
shareholders it would recover, the report says.

"It gave a false impression of how the company was performing. It
also had a knock-on consequence on any earnings guidance that
Slater and Gordon gave," ABC quotes Mr. Watson as saying.
Mr. Watson said that in November last year shares fell 30% over
two trading days and then a few weeks later fell by 51%, ABC
relays.  In December, they fell again and in February this year
they dropped by almost 60%, the report states.

"To have one such incident where the market reacts that adversely
to news which it didn't expect is misfortune. But to have five
just beggars belief," Mr. Watson, as cited by ABC, said.

Slater and Gordon said it was aware of media reports Maurice
Blackburn intended to file a class action but had not been served
with one yet, adds ABC.
