AMAZON SERVICES: 9th Cir. Sends Sellers' Case to Arbitration
------------------------------------------------------------
Ryan Borchers, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported that
two former Amazon sellers for Amazon who claim the online retailer
failed to pay them in a timely manner will have to arbitrate their
class action.

The reason? Quite simply, the Ninth Circuit said on October 13,
that is what they agreed to.

Jo Ellen Peters and Ken Lane filed their complaint in the District
of Western Washington on behalf of themselves and other online
sellers. They said that Amazon canceled their accounts suddenly
and then failed to transmit the profits from sales for over 90
says, even though the contract they signed promised payment within
14 days.

Peters and Lane said this is a routine occurrence and, in addition
to violating the contract, contravenes Washington state law, which
requires payment within 10 business days.

For its part, Amazon says it withheld the funds in case of refund
requests. It says it canceled the accounts because Peters sold
counterfeit goods and Lane sent emails with abusive language to
Amazon employees and tried to engage in price-fixing.

However, in spite of all that, a federal judge ruled that Peters
and Lane agreed to arbitrate their claims. On appeal, a Ninth
circuit panel affirmed this ruling unanimously.

"Lane and Peters agreed to Amazon's business solutions agreement,
which contains an unambiguous agreement to arbitrate '[a]ny
dispute or claim relating in any way' to the agreement or use of
Amazon's services," the panel's unpublished per curiam opinion
read.

The business solutions agreement trumps all other agreements,
including the marketplace participation agreement that Lane and
Peters also signed. They argue that agreement, which mandates
litigation, is an Amazon program policy. However, the panel found
it is actually a seller agreement, not a program policy, and falls
under the business service agreement.

It also did not help Lane that he became a seller before the
business service agreement came into being. He signed it later --
four different times, in fact, because he kept reopening his
account under aliases -- and it supersedes all previous
agreements, the panel held.

Britton Monts from The Monts Firm in Austin, Texas, represented
Peters and Lane. James Grant from Davis Wright Tremaine in Seattle
represented Amazon.

Neither the attorneys involved nor Amazon responded to requests
for comment.

The case is captioned, JO ELLEN PETERS and KEN KANE, on behalf of
themselves and all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs-
Appellants, v. AMAZON SERVICES, LLC,  Defendant-Appellee, No. 14-
35294 (9th Cir.)


ATLANTIC RICHFIELD: Class Certification Sought in "Rolan" Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiffs in the lawsuit captioned LERITHEA ROLAN, and
LAMOTTCA BROOKS, Individually, and on behalf of all others
similarly situated v. ATLANTIC RICHFIELD COMPANY, E.I. DU PONT DE

     All persons who currently, or, since being told in July 2016

     by East 151st Street; and (4) on the west by the Indiana

In their complaint, the Plaintiffs seek, among other things, an
order requiring the Defendants to reimburse the Plaintiffs for the

CARRIER IQ: Miorelli Appeals From Ruling in Consumer Privacy MDL
----------------------------------------------------------------
Objector Sam A. Miorelli filed an appeal from a court ruling in
the lawsuit titled In re Carrier IQ, Inc., Consumer Privacy
Litigation., Case No. 3:12-md-02330-EMC, in the U.S. District
Court for the Northern District of California, San Francisco.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, Carrier IQ
and several telecoms were hit in 2011 with a raft of consumer
privacy class actions alleging Carrier used a device called IQRD
to access smartphones while hiding its presence and subverting
standard operating system functions or other applications.  The
Plaintiffs said the software allowed Carrier IQ to log users'
keystrokes, including their private text messages and web
searches, in violation of federal and state wiretap laws.

In August 2016, U.S. District Judge Edward Chen granted final
approval of the $9 million settlement and $2.25 million in
attorneys' fees in the case, after throwing it in limbo in July
over questions about how many people knew they were eligible for
an award.

The appellate case is captioned as Patrick Kenny, et al. v.
Carrier IQ, Inc., et al., Case No. 16-16816, in the United States
Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

The briefing schedule in the Appellate Case is set as follows:

   -- Transcript must be ordered by November 7, 2016;

   -- Transcript is due on December 6, 2016;

   -- Appellant Sam A. Miorelli's opening brief is due on
      January 17, 2017;

   -- Answering brief of Appellees Carrier IQ, Inc., HTC America,
      Inc., Huawei Devices USA, Inc., Patrick Kenny, LG
      Electronics Mobilecomm U.S.A., Inc., Pantech Wireless, Inc.
      and Samsung Telecommunications America, Inc., is due on
      February 17, 2017; and

   -- Appellant's optional reply brief is due 14 days after
      service of the answering brief.

      ("FDCPA") in substantially the same form as "Exhibit A" to
      the Complaint in this action; (iii) during a period
      beginning on June 4, 2014, and ending on January 31, 2016.

   -- defines the "Class Claims" as those claims arising from
      COSP's collection letter, wherein COSP sent consumers

COLONY CAPITAL: Carter Files Class Suit Over Shady Merger Deal
--------------------------------------------------------------
William Carter, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Colony Capital, Inc., Thomas J. Barrack,
Jr., Richard B. Saltzman, Nancy A. Curtin, George G.C. Parker and
John A. Somers, Defendant, Case No. 1:16-cv-03282, (D. Md.,
September 29, 2016), demands injunctive relief, preliminary and
permanent enjoinment from proceeding with a merger deal,
reasonable attorneys' and expert fees and expenses and such other
and further equitable relief under the Securities and Exchange
Act.

On June 3, 2016, NorthStar Asset Management Group Inc. (NYSE:
NSAM), Colony Capital, Inc. (NYSE: CLNY) and NorthStar Realty
Finance Corp. (NYSE: NRF) announced that they have entered into a
definitive merger agreement under which the companies will combine
in an all-stock merger of equals transaction to create a world-
class, internally-managed, diversified real estate and investment
management platform. The transaction has been unanimously approved
by the Special Committees of NSAM and NRF, and the Board of
Directors of Colony. The combined company will be named "Colony
NorthStar, Inc."

Upon completion of the transaction, NSAM shareholders will own
approximately 32.85%, Colony shareholders will own approximately
33.25% and NRF shareholders will own approximately 33.90% of the
combined company on a fully diluted basis. NSAM shareholders will
also receive, in addition to its regular quarterly dividend, a
special cash dividend equal to $128 million, which represents a
one-time distribution of excess NSAM taxable earnings and profits.

According to the Complaint, the merger deal is believed to be
unfair to Plaintiff since they will not receive any premium for
their shares and end up with a diluted ownership stake in a
combined company that will be dragged down by the recent financial
and corporate governance problems.

HARTFORD CITY, IN: Sex Offenders Class Certified in Valenti Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Theresa L. Springmann entered an opinion and order in the
lawsuit titled BRIAN VALENTI, on his own behalf and on behalf of a
class of those similarly situated v. HARTFORD CITY, INDIANA, Cause
No. 1:15-CV-63-TLS (N.D. Ind.), certifying the Class defined as:

     all persons who currently, or will in the future, live in,
     work in, or visit Hartford City, Indiana, and who are, or
     will be, Sex Offenders as defined in Amended Ordinance
     2008-01.

The Court appoints Kenneth J. Falk, Esq., ACLU of Indiana, as
Class Counsel.

Because the Class is being certified under Rule 23(b)(2) of the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Court does not direct notice
and an opportunity to opt out.

Plaintiff Brian Valenti, on behalf of himself and others similarly
situated, has sued the City of Hartford City, Indiana, arguing
that Hartford City Ordinance 2008-01, titled "Regulation of Sex
Offenders," as amended by Ordinance 2015-10 (Amended Ordinance
2008-01 or the Ordinance), is unconstitutionally vague in
violation of the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment,

post facto punishment.

ILLINOIS: Judge Open to Approving Class in Inmates' Hep C Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit entitled JEFFREY ORR, et al., the Plaintiffs, v.
WILLARD O. ELYEA, et al., the Defendants, Case No. 2:08-cv-02232-
HAB (C.D. Ill.), the U.S. District Judge Hon. Harold A. Baker
denied the motion of inmates at the Illinois Department of
Corrections facilities for reconsideration of the denial of their
prior request for class certification.

Judge Baker indicated, however, that he is willing to approve a
class for injunctive relief.  The plaintiffs, he said, need to
file an amended motion for class certification, stating
specifically what class(es) they seek to certify for purposes of
injunctive relief.  They also need to identify the representatives
of the class in a way to demonstrate that the representative
plaintiffs are typical of the proposed class and to address the
other requirements of Federal Rule 23.

The case began nearly eight years ago.  The plaintiffs are former
or current IDOC inmates challenging the denial of Hepatitis C
treatment during their incarceration.  At that time, Judge
McCuskey denied Plaintiffs' motion for class certification.  The
District Court also denied certification in a similar case, Roe v.
Elyea, 06-cv-3034.

Judge Baker noted that much has changed since those denials.
Defendants contend that reconsideration is improper, but denial or
grants of class certification may be modified at any time before
judgment.

Judge Baker explained that when the case began, whether treatment
should be started and what that treatment should be was dependent
upon many factors, making it difficult to find the commonality
necessary for a class action.  Also, the treatment had serious
side effects, which further individualized treatment decisions.

Now, he continued, as the court has learned through the
evidentiary hearing held January 25, 2016, and the deposition
testimony of Dr. Batey and Dr. Thomas, new treatments are
available to successfully treat most cases of Hepatitis C in 12
weeks with minimal serious side effects.  The IDOC's treatment
policy has changed in light of these developments, but the IDOC
currently refuses to consider treatment for anyone with a fibrosis
level of less than 3.  That dispute, along with the length of stay
required in the IDOC before treatment will be considered, are at
the heart of the debate in the ongoing preliminary injunction
hearing.

The evidence thus far may support class certification for the
purposes of injunctive relief, Judge Baker said.  A possible class
for injunctive relief might be defined as any inmate who is now or
will be confined in the IDOC facilities for at least one year who
has Hepatitis C and who is being denied treatment based on his or
her fibrosis level or length of stay.  The certification would be
under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(b)(2) for purposes of
injunctive relief only.

In his Order dated Oct. 7, Judge Baker:

   a. denied the Plaintiffs' motion to reconsider class
      certification with leave to renew by October 31, 2016.

   b. directed the Plaintiffs to file, by October 31, 2016,
      a motion for preliminary injunction specifying exactly the
      injunctive relief they seek (This motion will replace the
      current preliminary injunction motion which is out of date
      given the advancements in treatment.);

   c. granted Defendant Shicker's motion for an extension to
      file objections to the Plaintiffs' motion to amend (The
      court has considered the objections.);

   d. granted the Plaintiffs' motion to add a malpractice claim
      to their complaint (The plaintiffs are directed to file
      their amended complaint by October 31, 2016. The amended
      complaint will completely replace the original complaint.
      The defendants may again raise their objections to the
      amended complaint in a motion to dismiss filed by November
      15, 2016.); and

   e. denied unopposed motion to intervene by several inmates
      who do not have Hepatitis C.

According to Judge Baker, the proposed intervenors claim that the
failure to treat all inmates with Hepatitis C puts them at a
substantial risk of contracting the disease. They do not explain
how they are at an unavoidable substantial risk of contracting
Hepatitis C. Hepatitis C is spread when "the blood from a person
infected enters the body of someone who is not infected. Today,
most people become infected with the Hepatitis C virus by sharing
needles or other equipment to inject drugs." (www.cdc.gov). It is
difficult to see how this could be a viable claim. In any event,
the Plaintiffs have not shown how permissive nor mandatory
intervention is warranted. The Plaintiffs are already adequately
representing the proposed intervenors' interest.

JC PENNEY: Ellingwood Appeals From Ruling in "Spann" Class Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Objector Walter F. Ellingwood filed an appeal from a court ruling
in the lawsuit entitled Cynthia Spann, et al. v. J.C. Penney
Corporation, Inc., Case No. 8:12-cv-00215-FMO-KES, in the U.S.
District Court for the Central District of California, Santa Ana.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the lawsuit
was filed on February 8, 2012, alleging that the Defendant
violated California's Unfair Competition Law and related state
statutes in connection with its advertising of sale prices for
private label apparel and accessories.  The lawsuit seeks
restitution, damages, injunctive relief, and attorney's fees and
costs.

On May 18, 2015, the court granted plaintiff's request for
certification of a class consisting of all people who, between
November 5, 2010 and January 31, 2012, made purchases in
California of JCP private or exclusive label apparel or
accessories advertised at a discount of at least 30% off the
stated original or regular price (excluding those who only
received such discount by using coupon(s)), and who have not
received a refund or credit for their purchases.

The parties have reached a settlement agreement, subject to court
approval, and in accordance with the term of the settlement, the
Company has established a $50 million reserve to settle class
members' claims.  The court granted preliminary approval of the
settlement. A final approval hearing was held on August 25, 2016.

In an Order dated Sept. 30 available at https://is.gd/2SYVMS from
Leagle.com, District Judge Fernando M. Olguin granted final
approval of the settlement, and ruled that:

     1. Plaintiff Cynthia E. Spann shall be paid a service payment
of $10,000 in accordance with the terms of the Settlement
Agreement and the Order.

     2. Class counsel shall be paid $13,500,000 in attorney's fees
and $191,080.91 in costs in accordance with the terms of the
Settlement Agreement and the Order.

     3. The settlement administrator, Heffler Claims Group LLC,
shall be paid up to $2,667,000 for its fees and expenses in
connection with the administration of the Settlement Agreement, in
accordance with the terms of the Settlement Agreement and the
Order.

     4. Except as to any class members who have validly and timely
requested exclusion, this action is dismissed with prejudice, with
all parties to bear their own fees and costs except as set forth
herein and in the prior orders of this court.

The appellate case is captioned as Cynthia Spann, et al. v. J.C.
Penney Corporation, Inc., Case No. 16-56474, in the United States

KOLBE & KOLBE: Insurer Seeks 7th Cir. Review of Ruling in "Haley"
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Intervenor Fireman's Fund Insurance Company filed an appeal from a
court ruling in the lawsuit entitled HALEY, et al. v. KOLBE &
KOLBE MILLWORK CO., INC., et al., Case No. 3:14-cv-00099-bbc, in
the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin.

In their complaint, the Plaintiffs alleged that the windows they
purchased from Defendant Kolbe & Kolbe Millwork Co. are defective.

In her Opinion and Order dated November 2, 2015 available at
http://is.gd/j0rNX1from Leagle.com, District Judge Barbara B.
Crabb addressed three motions for summary judgment related to
peripheral disputes between defendant and its insurers, Fireman's
Fund Insurance Company and United States Fire Insurance Company.

United States Fire seeks summary judgment on defendant's claims
that United States Fire breached its duty to defend defendant and
acted in bad faith.  Both insurers seek a declaration that they
owe no duty to defend or indemnify defendant.

Judge Crabb granted United States Fire's motion with respect to
defendant's claims because defendant has not shown that United
States Fire's conduct violated defendant's rights. However, the
Court denied both insurers' motion regarding their duty to
indemnify and their continuing duty to defend because there is
still a possibility that defendant could be required to pay
damages that are covered by the insurers' policies.

The appellate case is captioned as Kolbe & Kolbe Millwork Company
v. Fireman's Fund Insurance Company, Case No. 16-3562, in the U.S.
Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

According to the briefing schedule in the Appellate Case, the
Appellant's brief is due on or before November 8, 2016, for
Fireman's Fund Insurance Company and United States Insurance
Company.  Other parties reflected on the District Court docket but

MICHIGAN: Court Dismisses "Heard" Inmates Suit
----------------------------------------------
Judge George Caram Steeh dismissed the case captioned LAMONT
HEARD, et al., Plaintiffs, v. RICK SNYDER, et al., Defendants,
Civil Action No. 2:16-cv-13452 (E.D. Mich.) without prejudice to
the plaintiffs each filing individual complaints on their own
behalf.

13 Michigan prisoners who were each convicted of first-degree
murder filed a prisoner civil rights case under 42 U.S.C. section
1983.  The plaintiffs challenged the constitutionality of M.C.L.A.
791.234(6), which precludes parole eligibility for persons
convicted of first-degree murder, with the exception of defendants
who were juveniles at the time of the offense.

Although all 13 prisoners have filed separate applications to
proceed in forma pauperis, Judge Steeh found that all of the
applications are deficient because none include an authorization
to withdraw from trust fund account, a signed certification of the
plaintiff's prison trust account from an authorized jail official,
and a current computerized trust fund account showing the history
of the financial transactions in each of the plaintiff's
institutional trust fund accounts for the past six months.

Judge Steeh will also deny any request by the plaintiffs to file a
class action suit because none of the plaintiffs can adequately
protect the interests of the class.  The judge noted that numerous
cases have held that a prisoner proceeding pro se is inadequate to
represent the interests of his or her fellow inmates in a class
action.

In light of the filing deficiencies in the case, the fact that the
plaintiffs appear to be attempting to file a class action on
behalf of the other plaintiffs, as well as the fact that the
plaintiffs are incarcerated at separate facilities, Judge Steeh
believed that the best course of action would be to dismiss the
complaint without prejudice to the individual plaintiffs filing
complaints on their own behalf.

A full-text copy of Judge Steeh's October 5, 2016 opinion and
order is available at https://is.gd/4WHosx from Leagle.com.


MODERN METHOD: Certification of FLSA Class Sought in "Espinoza"
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned JOSE ESPINOZA, Individually and On Behalf
of Others Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. MODERN METHOD
GUNITE, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 4:16-cv-01279 (S.D. Texas),
the parties ask the Court to enter an order for conditional
certification of a class consisting of:

   "all individuals who were employed by MMG as laborers in its
   pebble division and were paid on a per job basis and worked in
   excess of 40 hours in a workweek during the last three years
   (Putative Class Members)".

The Plaintiff alleges MMG paid its laborers a flat amount per job
with no overtime pay for hours they worked over forty in a
workweek. The Plaintiff alleges other employees are owed overtime
for the same reasons, and therefore bring this case as a
collective action under sections 216(b) of the Fair Labor
Standards Act (FLSA).

Modern Method specializes in gunite, pool finishes, and boulder
creations.

MORTGAGE HOLDINGS, INC. and BANK OF AMERICA, N.A.,
Defendants, Case No. 1:16-cv-01516-DAD-MJS (E.D. Cal., October 7,
2016), arises from the alleged systemic and improper collusion
between Nationstar Mortgage Holdings, Inc. and Bank of America,
N.A. to charge homeowners inflated amounts of principal on their
mortgages. This practice allegedly results in homeowners being
presented with unexpected "balloon payments" at the end of the
life of their mortgage.

Defendant Nationstar Mortgage Holdings, Inc., a Delaware

NATURE COAST: Class Certification in "Torres" Suit Partly Granted
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled ROXANNE TORRES, individually and on behalf
of all similarly situated individuals, the Plaintiff, v. NATURE
COAST HOME CARE LLC, the Defendant, Case No. 8:16-cv-01970-JSM-MAP
(M.D. Fla.), the Hon. Judge James S. Moody, Jr. entered an order
granting in part and denying in part Plaintiff's Motion for
conditional class Certification and discovery.

The Court conditionally certifies a class of all current and
former home health aides employed by Nature Coast Home Care, LLC
who were:

   "(1) employed at any time during the period of time from July
   5, 2013, to January 1, 2015, and not paid overtime for any
   hours worked over 40 hours in a workweek and, in that same
   week that more than 40 hours were worked, more than 20 percent
   of the time was spent on general household work; and/or (2)
   employed at any time during the period of time from after
   January 1, 2015, up to and including the present, and not paid
   overtime for any hours worked over 40 hours in a workweek".

The parties shall confer with respect to any remaining objections
to certain provisions of the notice (to the extent not already
addressed by the Court) and file a joint proposed notice within 14
days of this Order. If the parties are unable to agree on the
details of the notice, they shall individually file a proposed
notice for the Court's review during that same period of time.

The Defendant shall provide Plaintiff within 14 days of this Order
the full name, last known mailing address, any last known e-mail
address, and dates of employment of each current of former
employee who was or remains employed as a "home health aide"
during the relevant periods of time.

With respect to the discovery Torres seeks from Nature Coast, the
Court agrees with Nature Coast that it should provide e-mail
addresses only if it has an e-mail address on file. In other
words, Nature Coast is under no duty to request an employee's
email address at this time. The Court also agrees that Torres'
request for the employee's job title is unnecessary because the
class is limited to home health aides.

NEW YORK: Court Certified Class with Modification in "Pfeffer"
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned CLARICE PFEFFER, DULCE MALAGON, JUAN
FERNANDEZ, MILYA SMOTRITSKIY, ELVIRA CARDONA, JULIO ADON, RAMON
PERALTA and NATALIA CASTILLO PERALTA, Individually and on behalf
of others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v. NEW YORK CITY
DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE, and JACQUES JIHA et al., the Defendants,
Case No. 1:15-cv-03547-RJD-LB (E.D.N.Y.), the Hon. Raymond J.
Dearie entered an order granting Plaintiffs' motion for class
certification -- with modifications and subject to objections from
the parties.

The separate motion of Ramon Alvarado and Maria Alomar to
intervene in the case is also granted.

The Court certified the following class:

   "all New York City residents with disabilities, as defined by
   the Americans with Disabilities Act, who are or will be
   eligible for the NYC Rent Freeze Program (RFP)".

Objections to the Court's proposed class definition were due
October 17 2016.

According to Judge Dearie, while the Court can appreciate the
strategic considerations that drive these motions, the Court
question the necessity of now seeking certification and related
relief. It is clear that the DOF acknowledges the presence of a
real problem, as it has taken meaningful steps to amend the
relevant rules and to alter its day-to-day policies in an effort
to address plaintiffs' concerns. And whether they have succeeded
or not, the approach has been programmatic and in favor of all
participants rather than simply the named plaintiffs and proposed
interveners. While it may be that the Court will eventually have
to decide whether defendants have gone far enough, it seems more
appropriate that the participants in this important conflict apply
their specific expertise and sound judgment, and continue, with or
without the assistance of the assigned Magistrate Judge, to close
the gap that divides them and jointly author a sensible compromise
that is sensitive to the needs and concerns of all parties.

PRIME HEALTHCARE: Dismissal of "Moran" Suit Reversed
----------------------------------------------------
The Court of Appeals of California, Fourth District, Division
Three reversed the trial court's judgment of dismissal in the case
captioned GENE MORAN, Plaintiff and Appellant, v. PRIME HEALTHCARE
MANAGEMENT, INC., et al., Defendants and Respondents, No. G051391
(Cal.).

Gene Moran filed a putative class action against Prime Healthcare
Management, Inc., Prime Healthcare Services, Inc., Prime
Healthcare Foundation, Inc., and Prime Healthcare Huntington
Beach, LLC, stating causes of action for violation of the Unfair
Competition Law (UCL), restitutionary relief under the Consumer
Legal Remedies Act (CLRA), and declaratory relief.  Each iteration
of the complaint is based on allegations the rates defendants
charge self-pay patients are discriminatory, exceed the reasonable
value of the treatment, and are "artificially inflated and grossly
excessive."

Defendants demurred to the Moran's third amended complaint (TAC),
arguing each of its counts failed to state a cause of action.  The
trial court sustained the demurrer without leave to amend,
primarily concluding Moran had failed to allege sufficient facts
to establish his standing to maintain the action.

The defendants contended Moran cannot maintain his UCL cause of
action because the hospital's variable pricing regimen has been
legislatively endorsed.  The appellate court concluded this
argument has only partial merit, holding that the safe harbor
doctrine, "does not . . . prohibit an action under the unfair
competition law merely because some other statute on the subject
does not, itself, provide for the action or prohibit the
challenged conduct.

The appellate court, however, concluded that the safe harbor
doctrine applies to Moran's discriminatory pricing claim because
the Business and Professions Code and the Unfair Practices Act
permit the use of variable pricing.  Thus, to the extent Moran
alleges defendants violated the UCL by discriminatorily charging
self-pay patients more than patients covered by government
programs or private insurance, the appellate court found that
Moran's argument fails.

Moran's UCL cause of action sought recovery on all three grounds
listed in Business and Professions Code section 17200.

To support the "unlawful" prong, Moran alleged that the
defendants' billing and collection practices "violate[d] the
[CLRA] as set forth" in the TAC's second cause of action.
However, to the extent Moran relied on purported violations of the
CLRA premised on misrepresentation, the appellate court found that
Moran's claim that the defendants' business practice is unlawful
fails because he did not allege facts supporting a finding he
actually relied on or could reasonably rely on any
misrepresentation in seeking medical treatment at the defendants'
hospital.

The remaining basis cited by Moran for the "unlawful" prong of his
UCL cause of action is that the Conditions of Admission
Agreement's (Contract) financial liability provision is
unconscionable.  The Contracts Moran signed were pre-printed
documents and the TAC alleged all emergency room patients must
sign the same document before being treated.  The appellate court
found that these averments support a finding of procedural
unconscionability.  As for substantive unconscionability, the
appellate court held that the price term of a contract can be the
basis for relief.  To the extent Moran alleged the financial
liability provision of the defendants' Contract is unconscionable,
the appellate court concluded he has sufficiently stated a cause
of action under the unlawful prong of the UCL.

The TAC enumerated several grounds supporting the "fraud" prong of
Moran's UCL cause of action.  However, the appellate court found
that no basis exists to conclude Moran's complaint supports
recovery under the UCL's fraud prong, because many of the alleged
bases for Moran's fraud theory do not involve conduct that is
likely to deceive a consumer or contradict the language of the
Contracts he signed.

As to Moran's claim under the "unfair" prong of the UCL, the
appellate court found that Moran has established a basis for
maintaining his UCL cause of action on the ground that the
defendants' policy of billing self-pay patients the full amount of
its charge description master rates was unfair because the amount
sought was allegedly unconscionable.

The appellate court also concluded that the trial court properly
sustained the demurrer as to the allegations of misrepresentation.
Because Moran failed to allege he read and relied on the signed
Contracts or other representation by the defendants, the appellate
court held that Moran lacks standing to maintain the CLRA cause of
action on this basis.

However, as to the allegation of Civil Code section 1770,
subdivision (a)(19), declaring unlawful "[i]nserting an
unconscionable provision in [a] contract," the appellate court
concluded that Moran has stated a basis for maintaining the CLRA
cause of action.

The TAC's third count sought declaratory relief under Code of
Civil Procedure section 1060.  Since Moran in part sought
injunctive relief to prohibit the defendants from future attempts
to collect unconscionable amounts for his medical care, the
appellate court concluded this issue is ripe for declaratory
relief.

In conclusion, the appellate court held that, while most of the
claims asserted by Moran lack merit, he has nevertheless
sufficiently alleged facts supporting a conclusion he has standing
to claim that the amount of the charges the defendants' hospital
bills self-pay patients is unconscionable.

PROGRESSIVE DIRECT: Hallihan Appeals S.D. Ill. Ruling to 7th Cir.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiffs Michael Hallihan and Suzanne Hallihan filed an appeal
from a court ruling in their lawsuit titled Suzanne Hallihan, et
al. v. Progressive Direct Insurance Company, Case No. 3:15-cv-
01068-NJR-SCW, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of Illinois.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter on Sept. 15,
2016, Judge Nancy J. Rosenstengel dismissed with prejudice the
Case.

On July 30, 2015, Suzanne and Michael Hallihan, on behalf of
themselves and all others similarly situated, filed a three-count
class action complaint against Progressive in the Circuit Court of
St. Clair County, Illinois, alleging fraudulent misrepresentation
and/or omission, unjust enrichment, and a violation of the
Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act in
relation to Progressive's sale of policies containing minimum
Underinsured Motorist (UIM) coverage.  The Hallihans asserted that
Progressive's minimum UIM coverage is "wholly illusory" since the
coverage limits are equal to the bodily injury liability coverage
required in Illinois.

The appellate case is captioned as Suzanne Hallihan, et al. v.
Progressive Direct Insurance Company, Case No. 16-3622, in the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

The briefing schedule in the Appellate Case is set as follows:

   -- Transcript information sheet is due by October 20, 2016;

RJ REYNOLDS: Dismissal of Employment Applicant's Suit Upheld
------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals, Eleventh Circuit affirmed in
part the dismissal of the case captioned RICHARD M. VILLARREAL, on
behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff-
Appellant, v. R.J. REYNOLDS TOBACCO COMPANY, PINSTRIPE, INC.,
Defendants-Appellees, No. 15-10602 (11th Cir.).

Richard Villarreal brought a collective action against R.J.
Reynolds Tobacco Company and Pinstripe, Inc. under the Age
Discrimination in Employment Act on behalf of "all applicants for
the Territory Manager position who applied for the position since
the date RJ Reynolds began its pattern or practice of
discriminating against applicants over the age of 40 . . . ; who
were 40 years of age or older at the time of their application;
and who were rejected for the position."  The complaint alleged
two counts: disparate treatment under section 4(a)(1) of the Act
and disparate impact under section 4(a)(2) of the Act.  In
anticipation of an objection of untimeliness, Villarreal also
alleged facts to support equitable tolling of the limitations
period that governed his complaint.

R.J. Reynolds and Pinstripe moved to dismiss Villarreal's
complaint in part.  They moved to dismiss the disparate-impact
count on the ground that section 4(a)(2) does not give a cause of
action to applicants, and they moved to dismiss as untimely the
parts of both counts based on the Villareal's 2007 application for
a position as territory manager at R.J. Reynolds.  The district
court dismissed the disparate-impact count and the untimely parts
of both counts.  After the district court denied Villareal's
motion for leave to amend the complaint, Villareal later moved to
dismiss the remaining parts of the complaint, and the district
court dismissed them with prejudice.

The Eleventh Circuit, however, affirmed the dismissal of the claim
of disparate impact, and affirmed in part the dismissal of the
claim of disparate treatment and the denial of leave to amend the
complaint.

The Eleventh Circuit concluded that the whole text of the Act
makes clear that an applicant for employment cannot sue an
employer for disparate impact because the applicant has no "status
as an employee."  The appellate court also concluded that
Villarreal is not entitled to equitable tolling of his claim of
disparate treatment because he admitted facts that establish that
he did not diligently pursue his rights.

The case was remanded for the panel to address the remaining issue
about whether the continuing-violation doctrine makes Villarreal's
claim of disparate treatment timely.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Suit Over Cash Bail System May Proceed
---------------------------------------------------------
Maria Dinzeo, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported that a
federal judge in Oakland, Calif., refused to toss a constitutional
challenge to San Francisco's cash bail system, saying a class of
pretrial detainees can pursue a 14th Amendment claim against San
Francisco County Sheriff Vicki Hennessy.

U.S. District Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers dismissed only part of a
putative class action claiming the city and county of San
Francisco unconstitutionally criminalizes poverty by jailing poor
arrestees because they can't afford to post bail. The judge nixed
the claim for monetary damages against the county but kept the
equal protection and due process claims in place.

The lawsuit was brought by two women arrested in October 2015 --
Riana Buffin, 19, and Crystal Patterson, 29 -- Buffin on suspicion
of grand theft and Patterson on suspicion of assault. Both were
released without charges after spending several days behind bars
because neither could afford bail: Buffin's bond was set at
$30,000, Patterson's at $150,000.

Gonzalez Rogers found the county immune from money damages under
the 11th Amendment since the county sheriff is actually a state
actor. But she ruled that the plaintiffs can still pursue a 14th
Amendment violation claim against Hennessy.

However, to the extent plaintiffs seek declaratory or injunctive
relief against the sheriff for her allegedly unconstitutional
conduct, the sole claim of violation of plaintiffs' 14th Amendment
rights may proceed against her, Gonzalez-Rogers wrote.

She also threw out the class' claim against California Attorney
General Kamala Harris, rejecting their argument that 11th
Amendment sovereign immunity protections do not insulate Harris
from a potential injunction to bar her from enforcing an
unconstitutional law. The plaintiffs had cited Ex Parte Young, an
11th Amendment immunity-from-suit exemption that applies when a
state official has some connection with enforcing the law, saying
it applies because Harris enforces the bail system to the extent
that she can prosecute those who violate it.

Gonzalez Rogers disagreed, writing, "The generic notion that the
attorney general can assist a district attorney in prosecuting
crimes or enforcing the Penal Code is too remote to the function
challenged in the [third amended complaint]. Thus plaintiffs have
failed to allege a 'fairly direct' connection between the attorney
general's actions or authority and plaintiffs' claims."

Andrea Guzman with the San Francisco City Attorney's Office said
the city is "pleased with the court's decision and evaluating our
next steps."

Phil Telfeyan with the Equal Justice Initiative, who represents
Buffin and Patterson, also called the ruling a victory.

"It allows our claims against San Francisco's wealth-based
detention scheme to move forward, and it requires Sheriff Hennessy
to state her official position regarding the unfairness of money
bail," he said in an email. "Most importantly, the decision allows
the class' claims for declaratory and injunctive relief to move
forward. We trust that Sheriff Hennessy will continue to recognize
the inherent inequality in a system that frees the rich and jails
the poor."

The federal lawsuit is one of two putative class actions against
the monetary bail system in California. The other case is led by
50 year-old Gary Welchen in Sacramento and names Harris as a
defendant. Welchen, who is homeless, was arrested for burglary in
January and held on a $10,000 bond.

U.S. District Judge Troy Nunley in Sacramento dismissed Welchen's
equal protection claim earlier this month, but unlike Gonzalez
Rogers found that Harris isn't immune from suit under the Ex Parte
Young exception.

Of that part of the ruling, Telfeyan said "that success in the
case could reverberate across the state."

He added, "We will continue to litigate both cases aggressively to
prove that money bail discriminates based on wealth-status,
creating two separate systems of justice: one for the rich and
another for people who are poor. Jailing people simply because
they are too poor to afford money bail offends basic principles of
fairness that are deeply rooted in our society."

The case is captioned, RIANA BUFFIN, et al., Plaintiffs, v. THE
CITY AND COUNTY OF SAN FRANCISCO, et al., Defendants, Case No.
15-cv-04959-YGR (N.D. Cal.).


SANTA MONICA, CA: Judge Mulls Stay of Suit Over Home Sharing Laws
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled ARLENE ROSENBLATT, the Plaintiff, v. CITY OF
SANTA MONICA and THE CITY COUNCIL OF SANTA MONICA, the Defendants,
Case No. 2:16-CV-04481-ODW-AGR (C.D. Cal.), three motions are
pending before the District Court: Plaintiff's Motion to Certify
the Class (ECF No. 19), Plaintiff's Motion for a Preliminary
Injunction (ECF No. 20), and Defendants' Motion to Dismiss (ECF
No. 26).

It came to the Court's attention that proposed amendments to Santa
Monica Municipal Code Chapter 6.20 "Home Sharing and Vacation
Rentals" are pending and will be considered during the City
Council of Santa Monica's November 22, 2016, meeting.

According to United States District Judge Hon. Otis D. Wright II,
in light of the fact that amendments to the contested ordinance
could, if adopted, render the lawsuit moot:

   "on or before October 21, 2016, each party shall submit a
   supplemental brief as to why the Court should not stay the
   entire case pending resolution of the proposed changes to the
   Ordinance. Each brief shall not exceed ten pages."

In addition, the Court deems the pending Motions appropriate for
decision without oral argument. Accordingly, the Motions are taken
Under Submission and the hearings are vacated.

Situated, Plaintiff, vs. SOLARCITY CORPORATION, LYNDON R. RIVE,
BRAD W. BUSS, and TANGUY SERRA, Defendants, Case No. 3:16-cv-
05806-HSG (N.D. Cal., October 7, 2016), alleging violation of the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Act, asserts that Defendants made
false and misleading statements or failed to disclose that: (i)
demand for the Company's products was weakening; (ii) the Company
was concealing the weakening demand from investors; and (iii) as a
result of these, Defendants' statements about SolarCity's
business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading or
lacked a reasonable basis.

Due to the Defendants' wrongful acts and omissions, and the
precipitous decline in the market value of the Company's
securities, Plaintiff and other Class members have suffered
significant losses and damages.

residential use. The Company sells solar energy systems directly
to customers, and offers financing. SolarCity also sells solar

TOKAI PHARMA: Garbowski Sues Over Share Price Drop
--------------------------------------------------
Michael Garbowski and Stephen Bushansky, on behalf of themselves
and all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. Tokai
Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Jodie Pope Morrison, Lee H. Kalowski, Seth
L. Harrison, Timothy J. Barberich, David A. Kessler, Joseph A.
Yanchik, III, BMO Capital Markets Corp., Stifel, Nicolaus &
Company, Incorporated, William Blair & Company, L.L.C. and Janney

Mass., September 29, 2016), seeks compensatory damages, reasonable
costs and expenses and such other and further relief under the
Securities and Exchange Act.

Tokai is a Boston-based biopharmaceutical company focused on the
development and commercialization of therapies for prostate cancer
and other hormonally driven diseases. The Company's lead drug
candidate has been galeterone, an oral small molecule that, at all
relevant times, was in various clinical trials for the treatment
of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer.

Tokai's statements and public filings failed to disclose that its
means of testing of galeterone was not FDA approved. On July 26,
2016, Tokai disclosed that it had discontinued the Phase 3 trial
of galeterone. This disclosure caused the price of Tokai stock to
plummet to $1.10 per share from $5.20 the day before.

TRI-STATE WATER: Home Depot Appeals Ruling in "Bauer" Class Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Home Depot U.S.A., Incorporated, filed an appeal from a court
ruling in the lawsuit styled Michael Bauer and Stacey Bauer,
individually and on behalf of others similarly situated v. Tri-
State Water Treatment, Inc., Tri-State Water Treatment, Inc., Home
Depot U.S.A., Inc., and Aquion Inc. doing business as: Rainsoft,
Case No. 3:16-cv-00419-MJR-RJD, in the U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of Illinois.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the lawsuit
(Case No. 15-SC-1407) was removed from the Madison County Court to
the District Court.  The District Court assigned Case No. 3:16-cv-
00419 to the proceeding.

On Sept. 29, 2016, Chief Judge Michael J. Reagan entered an order
granting Defendants'/Counterclaim Plaintiffs' motion to remand,
and remanded the case to the Third Judicial Circuit, Madison
County, Illinois.  The Court construed Counterclaim Defendant Home
Depot's motion to strike as an unacceptable sur-reply and ordered
that motion stricken.  The judge said all future hearings in this
matter, including the January 12, 2018 final pre-trial conference
and the January 29, 2018 jury trial are cancelled.

In view of Home Depot's appeal, Judge Reagan on Oct. 17 entered an
order staying the remand order pending receipt of the Plaintiffs'
brief and an ultimate decision on the request to stay.  He
directed the Plaintiffs to file any and all responses to Home
Depot's motion by Oct. 24.

The appellate case is captioned as Home Depot U.S.A., Incorporated

UBS FINANCIAL: Giancarlo Appeals S.D. Tex. Ruling to 5th Circuit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Samuel Giancarlo and Carlos Alsina filed an appeal from a court
ruling in their lawsuit titled Samuel Giancarlo, et al. v. UBS
Financial Services, Inc., et al., Case No. 4:03-CV-4359, in the
U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston.

The appellate case is captioned as Samuel Giancarlo, et al. v. UBS
Financial Services, Inc., et al., Case No. 16-20663, in the U.S.
Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

Jody Godoy, writing for Law360, reported in August 2016 that UBS
AG and affiliates shed a 13-year-old proposed class action
claiming UBS brokers hid Enron's fraud from retail investors when
a Texas federal judge ruled that the investors did not show that
the brokers had a duty to disclose signs of trouble.  U.S.
District Judge Melinda Harmon dismissed the suit, saying
PaineWebber, which merged with UBS in 2000, did not have a duty to
warn retail investors who bought stock in Enron around the time
Enron collapsed. The investors claimed PaineWebber had agreed not
to discourage Enron investments in exchange for having the
brokerage run Enron's lucrative employee stock option program.
Judge Harmon said the deal didn't mean UBS owed inside information
about Enron to its retail customers.

According to the August report, investor Samuel Giancarlo had sued
back in 2003 and updated the complaint to add Carlos Alsina in
2006, opting to forge a separate path from shareholders who got a
record $7.2 billion settlement. The pair sued on behalf of those
who bought certain Enron debt securities from PaineWebber in late
2000 and 2001.  They claimed PaineWebber had tacitly agreed not to
warn investors off of Enron stock in exchange for administering
Enron's employee stock options program, which netted the brokerage
customers after employees exercised their options.

Bonnie Spencer, an attorney for the pair of investors, told Law360
that the plaintiffs believe the judge "misapplied the law" to an
old complaint, despite their request in 2011 to update the claims
after taking discovery.  "The court did not rule on our motion in
over five years and instead determined to jettison the case based
upon an old pleading," Spencer said.

She went on to lament the high pleading standards for securities
fraud, saying that, unlike plaintiffs in other federal cases,
investors "literally have to win their evidentiary burden at the
pleading stage."  Spencer also said that the Fifth Circuit may
never find a securities fraud case adequate if her clients' claims
against UBS, set out in more than 100 pages, were not deemed
specific enough.

"There are no more Atticus Finch ideals left; our courts are no
great levelers," Spencer said, referring to a description of
American courts in Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird."

Robert Giuffra Jr., a Sullivan & Cromwell LLP attorney
representing UBS, meanwhile, told Law360 the bank is pleased with
the decision.

The cases before the Southern District of Texas are Mark Newby et
al. v. Enron Corp. et al., case number 4:01-cv-03624, and Samuel
Giancarlo et al. v. UBS Financial Services et al., case number
4:03-cv-04359.

UNITED STATES: 3rd Cir. Vacates Dismissal of "Schuchardt" Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned ELLIOTT J. SCHUCHARDT, individually and
doing business as the Schuchardt Law Firm, on behalf of himself
and all others similarly situated, Appellant, v. PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES; DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE; DIRECTOR OF THE
NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY AND CHIEF OF THE CENTRAL SECURITY
SERVICE; DIRECTOR OF THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION, No.
15-3491 (3rd Cir.), the United States Court of Appeals, Third
Circuit vacated the district court's order dismissing Elliott
Schuchardt's civil action for lack of jurisdiction.

The appeal involves a constitutional challenge to an electronic
surveillance program operated by the National Security Agency
(NSA) under the authority of Section 702 of the Foreign
Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

On June 2, 2014, Schuchardt filed a complaint in the District
Court asserting constitutional, statutory, and state law claims
against the President, the Director of National Intelligence, and
the Directors of the NSA and Federal Bureau of Investigation.  He
alleged that the Government was violating the Fourth Amendment by
storing his confidential communications "in a computer database,
or through a government program, which the Defendants call
'Prism.'"  He sought to enjoin "the [Government] from engaging in
any further collection of . . . [his] information."

In its motion to dismiss Schuchardt's second amended complaint,
the Government principally took issue with his allegation that the
"NSA collects the online communications . . . of all Americans,
including, therefore, his."  Specifically, the Government argued
that because Section 702 authorizes the targeted surveillance of
only persons outside the United States, it was implausible that
PRISM -- a program operating under the authority of Section 702 --
was a dragnet capturing all the country's domestic online
communications.

The District Court granted the Government's motion to dismiss
Schuchardt's second amended complaint for lack of jurisdiction.
The District Court held that Schuchardt lacked standing to sue
because he failed to plead facts from which one might reasonably
infer that his own communications had been seized by the federal
government.

The Third Circuit, however, found that Schuchardt's second amended
complaint pleaded his standing to sue for violation of his Fourth
Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches and
seizures.

The Third Circuit determined that Schuchardt's allegations stated
a particularized injury under Article III.  The appellate court
found that the consequences that Schuchardt identified as flowing
from the Government's alleged dragnet are undoubtedly personal to
him insofar as he has a constitutional right to maintain the
privacy of his personal communications, online or otherwise.  The
appellate court held that the fact that a large percentage of the
population may share a similar interest "does not change [its]
individualized nature" because Schuchardt's allegations make clear
that he is among the persons that are the "very targets of the
allegedly unconstitutional surveillance."

Further, the Third Circuit found that Schuchardt has gone beyond
mere allegations to survive a motion to dismiss by creating a
limited evidentiary record to support his allegations.

WELLS FARGO: $3.9MM "Hartley" Suit Settlement Gets Initial OK
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Joan M. Azrack granted preliminary approval of the
parties' settlement in the class action lawsuit titled MICHELLE F.
HARTLEY, STEVEN TOMLINSON, individually and on behalf of all
others similarly situated, and MARIA DEGENNERO v. WELLS FARGO &
COMPANY; WACHOVIA SECURITIES FINANCIAL HOLDINGS, LLC; and WELLS
FARGO ADVISORS, LLC, as successor in interest to Wachovia
Securities, LLC, Case No. 2:14-cv-05169-JMA-ARL (E.D.N.Y.).

In their complaint, the Plaintiffs allege that Wells Fargo
subjected its financial advisors to wage deductions in violation
of the New York Labor Law and misclassified them as exempt
employees and, therefore, inter alia, failed to pay them minimum
wages and premium overtime wages in violation of the Fair Labor
Standards Act and NYLL.

The Settling Parties agreed to settle the Case for a Gross
Settlement Amount of $3.9 million, which covers the Maximum
Settlement Portion for Payments to Participating Claimants,
enhancement payments to Class Representatives, administration fees
and costs, Wells Fargo's share of Payroll Taxes, and Class
Counsel's fees and costs.  The Maximum Settlement Portion for
Payments to Participating Claimants will be $2,460,000.

The Court provisionally certifies this Class for settlement
purposes:

     all Persons who were employed by Wells Fargo, or its
     predecessor Wachovia Securities, in the State of New York as
     a Private Client Group Financial Adviser between May 11,
     2009 and [September 30, 2016].

The Court appoints The Law Office of Christopher Q. Davis, PLLC,
as Class Counsel.  The Court also approves the Notice to Class
Members Re: Pendency of a Class Action.

A final fairness hearing will be held on a date yet to be
determined.

YAHOO! INC: Sweeney Seeks Review of Ruling in "Baker" Class Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Objector Appellant Patrick S. Sweeney filed an appeal from a
decision relating to claims in the lawsuit titled Cody Baker, et
al. v. Yahoo! Inc., Case No. 5:13-cv-04980-LHK, in the U.S.
District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, parties in
the Case entered into a settlement agreement, which is the product
of almost two and a half years of litigation regarding Yahoo's
practice of scanning and analyzing emails of non-Yahoo Mail
subscribers in purported violation of federal and California
wiretapping laws.

The Plaintiffs allege that Yahoo's operation of its Yahoo Mail
service violates the Stored Communications Act (SCA) and
California's Invasion of Privacy Act (CIPA).  The Plaintiffs
represent a class of individuals, who do not use Yahoo's email
service but have sent emails to Yahoo Mail subscribers from non-
Yahoo email addresses.  The Plaintiffs allege Yahoo's practices
while operating Yahoo Mail violate state and federal wiretapping
laws.

The appellate case is captioned as Cody Baker, et al. v. Yahoo!
Inc., Case No. 16-16759, in the United States Court of Appeals for
the Ninth Circuit.

The briefing schedule in the Appellate Case is set as follows:

   -- Transcript must be ordered by October 26, 2016;

   -- Transcript is due on November 25, 2016;

   -- Appellant Patrick S. Sweeney's opening brief is due on
      January 4, 2017;

   -- Answering brief of Appellees Rebecca Abrams, Cody Baker,
      Halima Nobles, Brian Pincus and Yahoo! Inc. is due on
      February 6, 2017; and

   -- Appellant's optional reply brief is due 14 days after
      service of the answering brief.
