v. CHANGE HEALTHCARE HOLDINGS, INC., CHANGE HEALTHCARE ENGAGEMENT

     1. Select the card-medication Brand from the list
     2. Enter BIN-PCN-GRP-ID#
     3. Use same card BIN-PCN-GRP-ID# for all patients.

Pressman Inc. informs the Court that it files the Motion soon

additional discovery is necessary for the Court to determine
whether to certify the class Plaintiff seeks to represent.  As a
result, Plaintiff will seek leave to pursue class discovery as
soon as practicable.

The case involves common fact questions about the Defendants'
alleged fax campaign and common legal questions under the
Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

CONOPCO INC: Settlement Deal in "Morales" Has Final Okay
--------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned ALBA MORALES; LANIE COHEN; LINDA CLAYMAN;
and KENNETH DREW, on behalf of themselves and all other similarly
APPROVAL OF CLASS situated, Plaintiffs, v. CONOPCO, INC., d/b/a
Unilever, Defendant, Civ. No. 2:13-2213 WBS EFB (E.D. Cal.), Judge
William B. Shubb granted the plaintifffs' motion for final
approval of the class action settlement.

The named plaintiffs, Alba Morales, Lanie Cohen, Linda Clayman,
and Kenneth Drew brought this putative class action against
defendant Conopco, Inc., d/b/a Unilever, asserting claims arising
out of the defendant's alleged labeling of certain hair care
products as "TRESemme Naturals" despite them containing synthetic
ingredients.

Judge Shubb certified the following class "All individuals in the
United States who purchased the following TRESemme Naturals
products: (a) Nourishing Moisture Shampoo; (b) Nourishing Moisture
Conditioner; (c) Radiant Volume Shampoo; (d) Radiant Volume
Conditioner; (e) Vibrantly Smooth Shampoo; and (f) Vibrantly

defendant, (2) the officers, directors, or employees of defendant
and their immediate family members, (3) any entity in which
defendant has a controlling interest, (4) any affiliate, legal
representative, heir, or assign of defendant, (5) all federal
court judges who have presided over this action and their
immediate family members, (6) all persons who submit a valid
request for exclusion from the class, and (7) those who purchased
the products for the purpose of resale."

Judge Shubb appointed the named plaintiffs as representatives of
the class, Mark Kindall of Izard, Kindall & Raabe, LLP as counsel
to the settlement class, and Alan Plutzik and Michael Strimling of
Bramson, Plutzik, Mahler & Birkhaeuser, LLP as liaison counsel.

The judge also held that class counsel and liaison counsel are
entitled to fees and costs in the amount of $883,200.54, plaintiff
Clayman is entitled to an incentive award in the amount of
$1,000.00, plaintiff Drew is entitled to an incentive award in the
amount of $4,000.00, plaintiff Cohen is entitled to an incentive
award in the amount of $4,000.00, and plaintiff Morales is

CONSUMER PORTFOLIO: Approval of Settlement Deal in "Hamm" Upheld
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Court of Appeals of California, Third District, Sacramento
affirmed the trial court's approval of the settlement agreement in
the case captioned RANDALL HAMM et al., Plaintiffs and
Respondents, v. CONSUMER PORTFOLIO SERVICES, INC., et al.,
Defendants and Respondents; JOSE GALLEGOS, Objector and Appellant,
No. C078147 (Cal. Ct. App.).

A class action was filed by Randall and Deborah Hamm against
Consumer Portfolio Services, Inc. (CPS) to obtain relief from the
secured creditor's attempts to recover deficiency judgments on
repossessed cars that were eventually sold by CPS.  The plaintiffs
alleged that they were not liable for any deficiency because CPS's
notice of intent to sell the vehicle (NOI) did not comply with the
Rees-Levering Motor Vehicle Sales and Finance Act's requirements.
They also alleged CPS violated the unfair competition law and
breached their contract.  They sought declaratory relief,
injunctive relief prohibiting CPS from collecting the alleged
deficiencies, credit repair, and restitution.

There were 2,189 members of the putative class, whose deficiency
balances totaled $18,158,243.  CPS had collected a total of
$826,910 from putative class members in payments on their
deficiency balances.

After discovery and failed settlement attempts, the parties
entered into a settlement agreement in 2014.  For its part, CPS
agreed to the following terms:

     -- It will not contest plaintiffs' allegation that the NOI's
        sent to the settlement class members from June 24, 2006,
        to October 20, 2010, did not strictly comply with the
        requirements of the Rees-Levering Act.

     -- It will cease all efforts to collect deficiency balances
        from the class members.

     -- It will refund to class members 78.75 percent of all
        amounts they have paid on their deficiency balances.

     -- It will change its account records to reflect a zero
        balance on all class member accounts on which it assessed
        a deficiency balance.

     -- It will instruct credit rating agencies to delete all
        class members' trade lines with respect to their
        accounts.

     -- It will not issue an IRS Form 1099 to class members
        unless the IRS orders it to do so.

For their part, class members expressly waived all rights under
Civil Code section 1542 and released CPS from all claims, known
and unknown, which could have been asserted based on the facts
alleged in the action and on CPS's NOI.

The trial court preliminarily approved the settlement agreement,
preliminarily certified the class for purposes of settlement, and
approved the notice of the proposed settlement to be sent to all
class members.

Appellant Jose Gallegos filed the only objection, arguing the
settlement agreement was unfair, inadequate, and unreasonable.
The crux of his objection was his belief that CPS's waiver of
outstanding deficiency balances would create a taxable event for
class members.

The trial court denied Gallegos's objection, found the class
notice adequate in all respects, and granted final approval to the
settlement agreement.  It ruled the agreement was fair, adequate,
and reasonable.  The court also determined the class notice
adequately informed class members of potential tax liability.

On appeal, Gallegos contended the trial court abused its
discretion when it approved the settlement agreement and found the
class notice adequate.

The appellate court found that the trial court did not abuse its
discretion in approving the settlement agreement, having reviewed
the relevant factors and satisfied itself that the consideration
CPS offered to class members was reasonable in light of the case's
strengths and risks.

The appellate court also found that the trial court did not abuse
its discretion by finding the class notice sufficiently explained
the settlement.  The appellate court held that the notice met all
of the requirements imposed by the California Rules of Court, and
also sufficiently explained the terms of the settlement.

CONVERGENT HEALTHCARE: Class Certification Sought in "Heisler"

CYTOSPORT INC: Court Rules on Discovery Bids in "Clay" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned CHAYLA CLAY, et al., Plaintiffs, v.
CYTOSPORT, INC., Defendant, Case No. 15-cv-00165-L (DHB) (S.D.
Cal.), Judge David H. Bartick granted in part and denied, in part,
the plaintiffs' motion to compel, granted the plaintiffs' motion
to file documents under seal, and granted the parties' joint
motion on the parties' stipulation regarding certain discovery and
class certification.

The plaintiffs, Chayla Clay, Erica Ehrlichman, and Logan Reichert,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated,
alleged that the defendant, Cytosport, Inc., mislabels its ready-
to-drink (RTD) protein supplements in violation of the California
Unfair Competition Law, California False Advertising Law, the
California Consumer Legal Remedies Act, the Michigan Consumer
Protection Act, and the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade
Practices Act, and in breach of an express and written warranty.

On July 14, 2016,  the plaintiffs and Cytosport filed a Joint
Motion for Determination of Discovery Dispute regarding
Plaintiffs' Amended Requests for Production and Amended Special
Interrogatories.  The plaintiffs sought an order of the Court
compelling complete responses to Requests Nos. 14 and 15 and
Interrogatories Nos. 25 and 26.  The plaintiffs further sought an
order of the Court compelling the defendant to produce documents
and information responsive to the plaintiffs' discovery requests
relating to all package sizes of the Class Products enumerated in
paragraph 52 of the Complaint.

On July 19, 2016, the parties filed another Joint Motion for
Determination of Discovery Dispute.  The plaintiffs sought an
order of the Court compelling further responses to Requests Nos.
29 and 30 in Plaintiffs' Amended Notice of Deposition Pursuant to
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 30(b)(6), 30(b)(2), and 34, and
Requests Nos. 38 and 40-45 in their Fourth Set of Requests to
Produce Documents.  The plaintiffs also filed a related motion to
seal documents.

As an initial matter, Cytosport argued the Joint Motion should be
denied as untimely because of the plaintiffs' delay in providing
Cytosport with their complete draft and supporting declaration and
exhibits.  The Court found that Cytosport was not materially
prejudiced, and it is in the interests of justice for the Court to
address the merits of the dispute.

Request for Production No. 14 sought all documents and data that
refer or relate to protein and L-Glutamine ingredients added,
removed, or substituted in the class products.

Request for Production No. 15 sought all documents and data that
refer or relate to any modifications to the recipe, formula, or
method of manufacture used to create the class products that could
affect protein or L-Glutamine content.

In Interrogatory No. 25, the plaintiffs asked Cytosport to
identify the Universal Product Codes (UPCs) for the class products
distributed during the relevant time period.

In Interrogatory No. 26, the plaintiffs asked Cytosport to
identify all labels used on each of the class products distributed
during the relevant time period, including: (1) the name and
size/volume of the product on which the label appeared; (2) the
dates during which the label was used; and (3) the Bates number of
the label, if the label has already been produced, or the name of
the custodian of the document and its location.

To the extent Cytosport has not produced the recipes for each of
the products listed in paragraph 52 of the Complaint, including
all variations in size and flavor, for the entire class period,
Judge Bartick granted the plaintiffs' request to compel production
of these documents.  The judge, however, agreed with Cytosport
that it need not create additional lists or spreadsheets
reflecting any changes, so long as all underlying documentation
has been produced which enables the plaintiffs to determine if and
when changes are made to the class products over the class period.

Because Judge Bartick found all sizes and flavors of the products
listed in paragraph 52 of the Complaint, for the entire class
period, to be relevant, the plaintiffs' motion to compel further
responses related to these products was granted.  The judge
ordered that the defendant must provide full and complete
responses to Interrogatories Nos. 25 and 26, identifying the UPCs
and labels for all of these products, and all additional
information requested in Interrogatory No. 26.

The plaintiffs also moved to compel responses to (1) Requests for
Production Nos. 29 and 30 in Plaintiffs' Amended Notice of
Deposition Pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 30(b)(6),
30(b)(2) and 34, and (2) Requests Nos. 38 and 40-45 in their
Fourth Set of Requests to Produce Documents.  With respect to
Requests Nos. 29 and 30 in the Amended Deposition Notice, the
plaintiffs stated these documents were eventually produced on July
11, 2016, but not as to the 8.25 oz. and 11 oz. RTD class
products.

Request No. 38 sought a copy of the Protein Quality Report from
Cytosport's Genesis database for each version of the recipes used
to produce the class products.

Requests Nos. 40-43 sought manuals, guides, and instructions for
Cytosport's (1) Genesis R&R software and database, (2) Sage 500
software, (3) O2 Processing module for the Sage 500 software, and
(4) Redzone Continuous Improvement System software.

Request No. 44 sought all standard operating procedures related to
the production or formulation of the class products.

Lastly, Request No. 45 sought all documents and data related to
the acceptable variances for protein and other nutrients in the
class products for the relevant time period.

Cytosport previously agreed to produce documents responsive to
Request No. 38, but not as to the 8.25 oz. and 11 oz. RTD
products.  Cytosport also refused to produce any documents
responsive to Requests Nos. 40-45.

As to Request Nos. 29, 30, 38, 44, and 45, Judge Bartick granted
the plaintiffs' motion to compel further responses as to all sizes
and flavors for the entire class period.  For Requests Nos. 40-43,
the parties agreed that these requests relate only to the merits
and not to class certification.  Accordingly, the plaintiffs'
motion to compel further responses to these requests was denied as
moot at this time.  To the extent the plaintiffs still require
production of these documents, if and when this case reaches the
merits stage, Judge Bartick stated that the parties shall re-brief
the issues addressing the relevance of these requests to the
merits of the case.

ENCORE RECEIVABLE: Class Certification Sought in "Merkovich" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled PATRICIA MERKOVICH, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. ENCORE
RECEIVABLE MANAGEMENT, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 2:16-cv-
01408-JPS (E.D. Wisc.), the Plaintiff asks the Court to certify a
class, and appoint Plaintiff as its representative, and Ademi &
O'Reilly, LLP as its class counsel.

The Plaintiff further asks the Court to stay this class
certification motion until an amended motion for class
certification is filed, and grant the parties relief from the
local rules' automatic briefing schedule and requirement that
Plaintiff file a brief and supporting documents in support of the
motion.

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

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

H. GREGORY 1: Bermudez, et al. Seek Certification of FLSA Class
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled Alejandro Bermudez and Raul Garcia,
individually, and on behalf of others similarly situated, the
Plaintiffs, v. H. Gregory 1, Inc., a for profit Florida
corporation d/b/a "HGreg.com, H Greg Auction Direct USA, H Greg

Greg Hairabedian, individually, the Defendants, Case No. 1:16-cv-
4147-DPG (S.D. Fla.), the Plaintiffs move the Court for an order:

   (1) granting conditional certification of the action as a
       collective action under the Fair Labor Standards Act
       (FLSA);

   (2) expediting discovery production by the Defendants, within
       15 days of the Court Order, of a complete list of each and
       every person -- and their last known home address and
       telephone number, and email addresses -- who was ever
       employed as an automobile salesperson at either of the
       privately held automobile dealerships owned and/or
       operated by Defendants H. Gregory 1, Inc., and Greg
       Hairabedian under any of the various H. Greg fictitious
       names, including "HGreg.com", "H Greg Direct Auto
       Auction", "H Greg Auction Direct USA", "H Greg Auction",
       "H Greg Direct Auto Auction" and "H. Greg USA.com" in
       Miami-Dade County, Florida;

   (3) requiring Defendants to format and produce on an
       expedited basis a list, both in hard copy and

       person listed alphabetically from "A" to "Z" and with
       each person's last known home address and telephone
       number, and email addresses in a separate field
       corresponding with each name; and

   (4) permitting Plaintiffs' counsel to mail a Court-Approved
       Notice to all such persons about their rights to opt into
       this collective action by filing a Consent to Join
       Lawsuit.

The Plaintiffs defined the class as:

   "all automobile salespersons employed or formerly employed at
   any either of the Miami-Dade County dealership".

The Plaintiffs and opt-in Plaintiffs, individually and on behalf
of the remaining putative class of similarly situated automobile
salespersons, seek conditional certification and expedited
discovery so that the putative class members may receive Notice of
this lawsuit and an opportunity to join. The FLSA defines
"Employer" broadly to include: "any person acting directly or
indirectly in the interest of an employer in relation to an
employee".

HORIZON HEALTHCARE: $33MM Settlement in "Demaria" Has Final Okay
----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned ALPHONSE A. DEMARIA, et al., on their own
behalf and on behalf of certified classes, Plaintiff, v. HORIZON
HEALTHCARE SERVICES, INC. d/b/a HORIZON BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD OF
NEW JERSEY, et al., Defendants, Civ. No. 2:11-cv-07298 (WJM)
(D.N.J.), Judge William J. Martini granted the plaintiffs' motions
to finalize the parties' settlement and to grant attorneys' fees.
Requests for reimbursement of litigation costs and for service
awards to class representatives were also granted.

The class action lawsuit alleged that Horizon Healthcare Services,
Inc. wrongfully denied medical insurance claims for chiropractic
services provided by the plaintiffs to patients enrolled in
Horizon insurance programs.

The plaintiffs filed their complaint on December 16, 2011.  On
June 1, 2015, the Court granted class certification pursuant to
Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23.  The Court appointed the
plaintiffs as class representatives and appointed Buttaci Leardi &
Werner LLC and Zuckerman Spaeder LLP as class counsel pursuant to
Fed. R. Civ. P. 23(g)(1).  The Court limited class-wide relief to
the reprocessing of the denied claims.

The Court preliminarily approved a settlement agreement between
the parties on June 20, 2016.  The agreement created a settlement
fund of $33 million to be distributed, after payment of attorneys'
fees and service awards, among class members in amounts
corresponding to their respective shares of the denied claims.
The plaintiffs retained Epiq Class Action & Claims Solutions, Inc.
to serve as settlement administrator.

On September 1, 2016, the plaintiffs filed an unopposed Motion for
Final Approval of Class Action Settlement, and also moved for the
Court to grant attorneys' fees and service awards.  The plaintiffs
requested that counsel be awarded 33.33% of the settlement amount,
or $11,000,000, in addition to $91,055.47 in expenses incurred
during litigation.  The plaintiffs requested an award of $45,000
for each of the three class representatives, for a total service
award of $135,000 (equal to 1.2% of the settlement amount).

According to the plaintiffs' supplementary memorandum filed on
October 6, 2016, none of the roughly 9,500 class members objected
to the settlement or to the class counsel's fee request.  Two
class members opted out; their unpaid claims of $2,555.00
represent only 0.0028% of the unpaid claims to be paid from the
settlement.  A fairness hearing was conducted October 13, 2016.

Judge Martini found that the settlement is "fair, reasonable, and
adequate" and that the plaintiffs have satisfied the Rule 23(e)
notice requirement.  Judge Martini also found the attorneys' fees
and costs and the service awards to be reasonable.

IMPERVA INC: Class Certification Sought in "Shankar" Suit
---------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned VISWANATH V. SHANKAR, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v.
IMPERVA, INC., et al., the Defendants, Case No. 4:14-cv-01680-PJH
(N.D. Cal.), the Plaintiff seeks certification of a class
consisting of:

"all persons and entities who purchased or otherwise acquired the
securities of Imperva, Inc. during the period from May 2, 2013
through April 9, 2014, inclusive".

According to the complaint, like most securities cases, this
action easily satisfies all the requirements of Rule 23(a): (i)
the fact that more than 24 million Imperva shares traded on the
New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") during the Class Period and
hundreds, if not thousands, of persons and/or entities purchased
or acquired Imperva shares during the Class Period demonstrates
that the proposed class is so numerous that joinder of all members
is impracticable; (ii) common questions of law and fact
predominate because Class members were injured by the same alleged
misrepresentations and omissions; (iii) for the same reason, the
claims of the proposed class representative as well as the
defenses thereto are typical of the claims and defenses applicable
to the Class; and (iv) Plaintiff is an adequate class
representative because its interests are not antagonistic to those
of other Class members, and Plaintiff and its counsel are fully
able to vigorously prosecute this action on behalf of the Class.

IQOR HOLDINGS: FCRA Claim in "Shoots" Suit Dismissed
----------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned Paris Shoots, Jonathan Bell, Maxwell Turner,
Tammy Hope, Phillipp Ostrovsky, Brenda Brandt, Anissa Sanders,
Najai McCutcheon, and Leticia Rodriguez, on behalf of themselves,
the Proposed Rule 23 Classes, and others similarly situated,
Plaintiffs, v. iQor Holdings US Inc., Defendant, Case No. 15-cv-
563 (SRN/SER) (D. Minn.), Judge Susan Richard Nelson granted iQor
Holdings US Inc.'s motion to dismiss and dismissed Count XI of the
plaintiffs' Third Amended Complaint without prejudice.

Count XI of the Third Amended Complaint (TAC) asserted -- on
behalf of the plaintiff Paris Shoots individually and a proposed
class generally -- that iQor willfully violated the standalone
disclosure requirement of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

On the basis of the Supreme Court's decision in Spokeo v. Robins,
136 S.Ct. 1540 (2016), which highlighted the independent
significance of the Article III standing requirement in the
analysis of cases lacking actual damages, iQor brought a motion to
dismiss, arguing that because Shoots "[d]oes [n]ot and [c]annot"
demonstrate that he suffered a "concrete injury" for purposes of
constitutional standing doctrine, his FCRA claim cannot be allowed
to proceed.

By way of response, Shoots contended that he did indeed suffer
constitutionally cognizable harms, arguing that iQor's actions
amounted both to an invasion of privacy and a violation of
Shoots's right to receive information in the manner specified by
law.

Judge Nelson held that, without some concrete indication that
Shoots' ability to preserve his privacy, or to correct errors, was
hindered, the Court cannot conclude that Shoots's allegations go
beyond the sort of basic technical infraction that was stated in
Spokeo as insufficient to confer standing.

Judge Nelson also held that Shoot's information injury fails
because nowhere in the Complaint did Shoot allege that he was
actually deprived of information to which he was entitled by
statute.

"While the Court does not suggest that a failure by a defendant to
comply with a statutory method of disclosure can never rise to the
level of an injury sufficient to confer standing, more must be
alleged than is found in the present Complaint," said the judge.
The judge explained that if Shoots had contended somehow that
iQor's failure to provide him with a stand-alone disclosure had
amounted to a constructive deprivation of information -- such as
by impeding his ability to understand what he was signing, or by
hiding important information in a thicket of legalese -- this
might well be a different case.  The judge further explained that
without such allegations, Shoots's injury -- even if styled an
"informational" one -- is nothing more than technical, and
insufficient to meet the requirements to confer Article III
standing.

JOSEPH CORY: Vazquez Seeks Certification of FDUPTA & IRS Classes
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiff in the lawsuit captioned OBED VAZQUEZ, on behalf of
himself and on behalf of all others similarly situated v. JOSEPH
CORY HOLDINGS, LLC, Case No. 6:16-cv-01307-PGB-TBS (M.D. Fla.),
moves the Court to certify these classes:

     FDUPTA CLASS:

     All persons employed by Defendant as drivers in Florida
     within four years of the filing of this complaint through
     the date of final judgment in this action.

     IRS CLASS:

     All persons employed by Defendant as drivers in the United
     States who were classified as independent contractors rather
     than employees for whom Defendant filed fraudulent Form
     1099s within the applicable limitations period through the
     present.

Mr. Vazquez has brought the action on behalf of himself and all
other similarly situated persons, who worked as drivers for Joseph
Cory.  He alleges that he has been misclassified as an independent
contractor in violation of the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade
Practices Act.

Mr. Vazquez also asks the Court to appoint him as Class
Representative and his counsel as class counsel, and to allow them
to notify the Class members.

JUDGE TECHNICAL: Court-Authorized Notice Sought in "Lewis-Gursky"
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled CAROLINE ALANA LEWIS-GURSKY, and RUBEN CHEZ,
on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated,
Plaintiffs, v. CITIGROUP, INC., and JUDGE TECHNICAL SERVICES,
INC., the Defendants, Case No. 8:15-cv-02887-SCB-MAP (M.D. Fla.),
the Plaintiffs ask the Court to:

   (1) require Citi to produce, within 21 business days of the
       Order, a computer-readable data file containing the names,
       last known mailing addresses, last known telephone
       numbers, last known e-mail addresses, and work locations
       for all Hourly Technology Workers, and the last four
       digits of the Social Security numbers for any HTWs whose
       notices are returned undeliverable; and

   (2) authorize the issuance of the Proposed Notice to all HTWs
       as defined above by U.S. Mail and e-mail and a reminder
       notice during the opt-in period.

The case seeks to hold Citi liable as HTWs' joint employer for
their unpaid overtime claims under the FLSA. Citi requires HTWs to
work over 40 hours per week, but only pays their agencies for 40
hours' worth of work. The agencies in turn limit HTWs' pay to 40
hours per week. HTWs regardless of agency, location, or
supervisor, satisfies Plaintiffs' minimal burden to show that they
and other HTWs are similarly situated with respect to their
overtime claims.

LKQ CORP: Class Cert. Hearing in "Wendell" Continued to Nov. 22
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Matthew F. Kennelly entered an order in the lawsuit
styled Wendell H. Stone Company, Inc., the Plaintiff, v. LKQ
Corporation, the Defendant, Case No. 1:16-cv-07648 (N.D. Ill.),
generally continuing Plaintiff's motion to certify a class.

According to the docket entry made by the Clerk on October 21,
2016, a hearing was held with attorneys on both sides on that day.
A status hearing is continued to Nov. 22, 2016 at 9:00 a.m.

A copy of the Docket Entry is available at no charge at

LOCUMS INC: Comprehensive Health's Bid to Certify Class Denied
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. William P. Dimitrouleas denied without prejudice the
Plaintiff's motion for class certification filed in the lawsuit
styled COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH CARE SYSTEMS OF THE PALM BEACHES,
INC., a Florida corporation, individually and as the
representative of a class of similarly-situated persons v. LOCUMS,
INC., and JOHN DOES 1-12, Case No. 9:16-cv-81762-WPD (S.D. Fla.).

In his order, Judge Dimitrouleas opined that he is denying the
Motion as premature on procedural grounds only; the Court makes no
conclusions regarding the substance of the Motion.  "Any later
motion by Defendants to dismiss for lack of subject matter
jurisdiction based upon an offer of judgment made to the named
Plaintiff only is likely to be summarily denied," Judge
Dimitrouleas stated.

A copy of the Order is available at no charge at
http://d.classactionreporternewsletter.com/u?f=AUd5dNWY

In the lawsuit, the Plaintiff moved for entry of an order
certifying a class of:

   "each person sent one or more telephone facsimile messages
   from Locums, Inc. offering "Staffing Solutions for Small or
   Solo Practices".

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

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

MDL 1203: Denial of Wilson Claim for Matrix Benefits Affirmed
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned IN RE: DIET DRUGS (PHENTERMINE/
FENFLURAMINE/DEXFENFLURAMINE) PRODUCTS LIABILITY LITIGATION. THIS
DOCUMENT RELATES TO: SHEILA BROWN, et al., v. AMERICAN HOME
PRODUCTS CORPORATION, No. 2:16 MD 1203, Civil Action No. 99-20593
(E.D. Pa.), Judge Harvey Bartle, III affirmed the settlement
trust's denial of the Wilson estate's claim for matrix benefits.

The Estate of Alice F. Wilson, a representative claimant under the
Diet Drug Nationwide Class Action Settlement Agreement with Wyeth,
sought benefits from the AHP Settlement Trust.

Under the Settlement Agreement, only eligible claimants or
representative claimants are entitled to Matrix Compensation
Benefits.  Generally, a claimant or representative claimant is
considered eligible for Matrix Compensation Benefits if the Diet
Drug Recipient is diagnosed with mild or greater aortic and/or
mitral regurgitation by an echocardiogram performed between the
commencement of Diet Drug use and the end of the Screening Period.

The Trust issued a post-audit determination denying the Estate's
claim.

In contest, the Estate argued that there was a reasonable medical
basis for finding that Ms. Wilson had at least mild mitral
regurgitation between the commencement of Diet Drug use and the
end of the Screening Period.  According to the Estate, the
reasonable medical basis standard is a "relatively low threshold."

The Trust then issued a final post-audit determination again
determining that the Estate was not entitled to Matrix
Compensation Benefits.

The Trust then applied to the court for issuance of an Order to
show cause why the Estate's claim should be paid.

Judge Bartle concluded that the Estate has not met its burden of
proving that there is a reasonable medical basis for finding that
Ms. Wilson had at least mild mitral regurgitation between the
commencement of Diet Drug use and the end of the Screening Period.
Therefore, the judge affirmed the Trust's denial of the Estate's
claim for Matrix Benefits.

NBTY INC: Sweat Asks Court to Rule on Cert. Bid After Discovery
---------------------------------------------------------------
Jennifer Sweat asks the Court to issue an order that:

   (1) the Court will hold its ruling on class certification
       until after discovery is held on class issues in the
       lawsuit titled JENNIFER SWEAT, on behalf of herself and
       all others similarly situated v. NBTY, INC., Case No.
       3:16-cv-00940-MMH-PDB (M.D. Fla.);

   (2) allows discovery to take place on the relevant issues;

   (3) grants Plaintiff leave to file a supplemental motion or
       brief at the conclusion of such discovery; and

   (4) finally grants class certification after full briefing of
       the issues.

Ms. Sweat brings the action on her own behalf and on behalf of
others similarly situated as a multi-state class action.  The
class she seeks to represent is composed of and defined as:

     All persons residing in states which have enacted the

     have purchased dietary supplements manufactured and marketed
     by defendant and labeled "Made in the USA," featured an
     American Flag, or otherwise labeled or marketed with an
     unqualified representation of domestic sourcing.

Alternatively, if the Court does not certify the Class, the
Plaintiff seeks to represent this Florida-only class:

     All persons residing in Florida who, within the applicable
     limitations period, have purchased dietary supplements
     manufactured and marketed by Defendant and labeled "Made in
     the USA," featured an American Flag, or otherwise labeled or

NORTH CAROLINA: Appeals Court Revives Abrons Suit Over NCTracks
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned ABRONS FAMILY PRACTICE AND URGENT CARE, PA;
NASH OB-GYN ASSOCIATES, PA; HIGHLAND OBSTETRICAL-GYNECOLOGICAL
CLINIC, PA; CHILDREN'S HEALTH OF CAROLINA, PA; CAPITAL NEPHROLOGY
ASSOCIATES, PA; HICKORY ALLERGY & ASTHMA CLINIC, PA; HALIFAX
MEDICAL SPECIALISTS, PA; and WESTSIDE OB-GYN CENTER, PA;
Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated,
Plaintiffs, v. NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN
SERVICES, and COMPUTER SCIENCES CORPORATION, Defendants, No.
COA15-1197 (N.C. Ct. App.), the Court of Appeals of North Carolina
reversed the order of the trial court which granted the motion of
the defendants, North Carolina Department of Health and Human
Services (DHHS) and Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), to
dismiss the plaintiffs' complaint for lack of subject matter
jurisdiction.

On January 21, 2014, the plaintiffs, Abrons Family Practice and
Urgent Care, PA; Nash OB-GYN Associates, PA; Highland Obstetrical-
Gynecological Clinic, PA; Children's Health of Carolina, PA;
Capital Nephrology Associates, PA; Hickory Allergy & Asthma
Clinic, PA; Halifax Medical Specialists, PA; and Westside OB-GYN
Center, PA, filed a "First Amended Class Action Complaint"
alleging that the implementation of NCTracks had been a "disaster,
inflicting millions of dollars in damages upon North Carolina's
Medicaid providers."

The plaintiffs asserted that CSC had breached its duty to develop
software that complied with Medicaid reimbursement rules, allowed
providers to enroll as Medicaid providers, and that processed and
paid providers' claims, and had also been negligent in its design
and implementation of NCTracks.

The plaintiffs sought damages based on claims of negligence and
unfair and deceptive trade practices (UDTP) against CSC and SLI
Global Solutions, Inc; and breach of contract and violations of
Art. I, section 19 of the North Carolina Constitution against
DHHS.  The plaintiffs also sought a declaratory judgment that DHHS
was in violation of the Medicaid reimbursement rules.  In their
complaint, the plaintiffs alleged that it would be futile or
impossible for them to attempt to exhaust the available
administrative remedies for a variety of reasons.

On 4 April 2014, DHHS and CSC each filed a motion to dismiss
pursuant to Rule 12(b)(1), 12(b)(2), and 12(b)(6) of the North
Carolina Rules of Civil Procedure.

The trial court ruled that the plaintiffs' "primary claim" was for
unpaid Medicaid claims and that plaintiffs had failed to exhaust
the available administrative remedies prior to filing their
complaint.  The court dismissed the plaintiffs' complaint pursuant
to N.C. Gen. Stat. section 1A-1, Rule 12(b)(1) (2015) for lack of
subject matter jurisdiction, based upon the plaintiffs' failure to
exhaust the available administrative remedies prior to filing
suit.  The court dismissed as moot the defendants' motions for
dismissal pursuant to N.C. Gen. Stat. section 1A-1 Rule 12(b)(2)
and 12(b)(6).

On appeal, the plaintiffs argued that DHHS has a legal obligation
to render a final decision on each Medicaid claim that it denies,
to inform the provider of its final decision, and to notify the
provider of the provider's right to seek a contested case hearing.
The plaintiffs contended that "[a]t no time do DHHS or CSC issue a
final decision on any claims" and asserted that a provider cannot
initiate the process of exhausting its administrative remedy until
DHHS issues a final decision from which the provider can appeal.

The appellate court concluded that the trial court erred by
failing to resolve the crucial issues of fact as to whether DHHS
issues final agency decisions in Medicaid claim matters and
whether DHHS supplies providers with written notice of its final
agency decisions, by treating the Remittance Statement as notice
of a final agency decision, by including a reconsideration review
as a mandatory administrative review, by suggesting that a
provider has the legal duty to ensure that DHHS complies with its
own obligations, and by substituting an imprecise and subjective
standard for the statutory and regulatory deadlines that apply to
review of a final agency decision.

The appellate court thus reversed and remanded the trial court's
order for entry of additional findings and conclusions.

PATRIARCH PARTNERS: WARN Suits Referred to Bankruptcy Court
-----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Edgardo Ramos denied the plaintiffs' motion to consolidate
the cases captioned JESSICA GISINGER, Individually and On Behalf
of All Others Similarly Situated, Plaintiff, v. PATRIACH PARTNERS
and LYNN TILTON, Defendants. DALIBEL GARCIA, Individually and On
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated Plaintiff, v. PATRIACH
PARTNERS, LLC, and XYZ ENTITIES 1-10, Defendants. WARREN
EISENSTADT, Individually and On Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated Plaintiff, v. PATRIACH PARTNERS, LLC, and XYZ ENTITIES 1-
10, Defendants, Nos. 16 Civ. 1564 (ER), 16 Civ. 1596 (ER), 16 Civ.
2831 (ER) (S.D.N.Y.).  Judge Ramos granted instead the defendants'
motion to refer the cases to bankruptcy court.

TransCare filed its bankruptcy petition on February 24, 2016.  It
estimated that its number of creditors was between 200 and 999,
that its estimated assets totalled between approximately
$10,000,001-$50 million, and that it had between approximately
$50,000,001-$100 million of liabilities.

In February and March 2016, three class actions were brought under
the federal and state Worker Adjustment and Retraining
Notification (WARN) Act against Defendants Patriarch Partners,
LLC, and its affiliates (together, "Patriarch") and Lynn Tilton1
alleging that they fired their employees without the required 60-
day notice.

On March 1, 2016, Shameeka Ien, a former TransCare employee filed
an adversary proceeding, on behalf of herself and similarly
situated employees, before the bankruptcy court asserting federal
and New York WARN Act claims and claims for unpaid wages under New
York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland law.

On May 12, 2016, the plaintiffs Jessica Gisinger, Dalibel Garcia,
and Warren Eisenstadt filed a motion to consolidate the actions
and appoint interim co-class counsel.

On June 2, 2016, the defendants filed a cross motion to enforce
the standing order of reference automatically referring the
actions to bankruptcy court.  The defendants argued that the cases
before the Court are "related to" both the Chapter 7 proceeding
and the Ien Adversary proceeding in Bankruptcy Court.

Judge Ramos found that the actions are "inextricably intertwined"
by virtue of the identical facts and assertions.  Not only does
Tilton, as the sole member of TransCare's Board of Directors, have
a potentially viable claim for indemnification against TransCare,
but also both Tilton and Patriarch are named defendants in the Ien
Adversary proceeding, in which Ien asserts almost identical claims
to the instant suits, on behalf of a similarly defined class.
Accordingly, Judge Ramos found that the three cases are related to
the proceedings before the Bankruptcy Court and should be
automatically referred pursuant to the Standing Order of
Reference.

The plaintiffs argued that even if the instant actions are
automatically referred to the Bankruptcy Court, they must be
immediately withdrawn to the district court pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
section 157(d).  Judge Ramos found that mandatory withdrawal is
inappropriate.  The judge said that although the plaintiffs are
correct in noting that this proceeding does not include any claims
under the Bankruptcy Code, the plaintiffs' WARN Act claims are not
particularly complex and will require only simple application of
the WARN Act by the bankruptcy court.  Judge Ramos also found that
permissive withdrawal is inappropriate, agreeing with the
defendants' argument that uniformity of bankruptcy administration
is better served by having the bankruptcy court issue one decision
in the bankruptcy, adversary hearing, and the instant cases.

Because referral of the cases to bankruptcy court is appropriate,
Judge Ramos held that the plaintiffs' motion to consolidate the
instant cases is moot.

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

TEMPUR-SEALY: "Todd" Proceedings Stayed Pending Appeal
------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned ALVIN TODD, et al., Plaintiffs, v. TEMPUR-
SEALY INTERNATIONAL, INC., et al., Defendants, Case No. 13-cv-
04984-JST (N.D. Cal.), Judge Jon S. Tigar granted the plaintiffs'
motion to stay proceedings pending final resolution of the
appellate proceedings before the Ninth Circuit.

On September 30, 2016, the district court entered an order denying
the plaintiff's motion for class certification, and on October 14,
2016, the plaintiffs filed a Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(f)
petition with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals for permission to
appeal the court's September 30, 2016 order.

On October 17, 2016, the plaintiffs moved to stay the proceedings
pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(f).  The defendants
have not yet filed their response to the plaintiffs' Petition but
have consented, through counsel, to the plaintiffs' motion for a
stay pending the Ninth Circuit's decision on the plaintiffs'
petition, and in the event that the petition is granted, have
agreed to a stay of proceedings in the district court pending the
resolution of plaintiffs' appeal.

Judge Tigar found that the plaintiffs have shown a sufficient
likelihood of success on the merits to support the issuance of a
stay of these proceedings because the plaintiffs' petition raises
"serious legal questions" on appeal.

Judge Tigar also found that both the plaintiffs and the defendants
would suffer "substantial harm if this action is not stayed
pending appeal and the Court is later reversed on the issue of
class certification, resulting in substantial time and resources
being spent on this litigation, particularly expert discovery,
dispositive motions and trial preparation. . . ."

In addition, the judge found that proceeding to a trial on the
plaintiffs' individual claims prior to the Ninth Circuit's review
of the court's order would also subject the plaintiffs and
potentially, class members, to multiple trials.

Judge Tigar thus concluded that balance of hardships tips in favor
of a stay of proceedings.

Defendants have also consented to the plaintiffs' motion.  Thus,
the judge held that a stay would therefore result in no material
harm to the defendants.

Finally, Judge Tigar held that a stay pending the Ninth Circuit
action would serve important interests of sound and fair judicial
administration.

TRANSAM LEASING: 10th Cir. Upholds Ruling Over Truckers' Fee
------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals, Tenth Circuit affirmed in part
and reversed, in part, the trial court's ruling which granted
partial summary judgment for the truckers in the case captioned
CANDACE FOX; ANTHONY GILLESPIE; CHARLES SCHRECKENBACH, Plaintiffs
Counter Defendants-Appellees, v. TRANSAM LEASING, INC.; TRANSAM
TRUCKING, INC., Defendants Counterclaimants-Appellants, No. 15-
3203 (10th Cir.).

The plaintiffs, three independent truckers representing themselves
and a class of similarly situated truck drivers, contended that
the defendants TransAm Trucking, Inc. and TransAm Leasing, Inc.
violated the Department of Transportation's truth-in-leasing
regulations by requiring the truckers, who lease their trucks and
driving services to TransAm, to pay TransAm $15 each week to use
TransAm's satellite communications system.

The truckers filed a motion for partial summary judgment on
liability, which was granted by the district court.  The district
court found that the $15 usage fee violates 49 C.F.R. section
376.12(i), which precludes a motor carrier like TransAm from
requiring a trucker "to purchase or rent any products, equipment,
or services from the authorized carrier as a condition of entering
into the lease arrangement."

TransAm also moved for summary judgment, arguing among other
things that, even if its $15 usage fee technically violated
section 376.12(i), the truckers could not prove they were entitled
to damages as a result of that violation.  The district court
denied TransAm's motion.

The Tenth Circuit affirmed the partial summary judgment for the
truckers, which ruling will support the truckers' requests for
injunctive and declaratory relief. But the truckers also asserted
a claim for damages, which the district court certified as a class
action.  The Tenth Circuit held that because the truckers failed
to present any evidence of their damages resulting from the
unlawful usage fee, the district court should have entered summary
judgment for TransAm on that damages claim.  As such, the Tenth
Circuit reversed the district court's decision to deny TransAm
summary judgment on the truckers' claim for damages resulting from
the section 376.12(i) violation.

TRANSWORLD SYSTEMS: Radcliffe Seeks Certification of Class
----------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled PATRICIA RADCLIFFE, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated, the Plaintifs, v.
TRANSWORLD SYSTEMS, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 2:16-cv-01410-NJ
(E.D. Wisc.), the Plaintiff asks the Court to certify a class,
appoint herself as its representative, and appoint Ademi &
O'Reilly, LLP as its Counsel.

The Plaintiff further asks the Court to stay this class
certification motion until an amended motion for class
certification is filed, and that the Court grant the parties
relief from the local rules' automatic briefing schedule and
requirement that Plaintiff file a brief and supporting documents
in support of this motion.

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

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

U-HAUL COMPANY: Permanent Injunction in "Robinson" Affirmed
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned LEIGH ROBINSON, Plaintiff and Respondent, v.
U-HAUL COMPANY OF CALIFORNIA, et al., Defendants and Appellants,
A141396, A145828 (Cal. Ct. App.), the Court of Appeals of
California, First District, Division Four affirmed the judgment of
the trial court which issued a permanent injunction against U-Haul
Co. of California (UHC), and awarded Robinson more than $800,000
in attorney's fees.

Nearly 10 years ago, appellant U-Haul Co. of California (UHC) sued
respondent Leigh Robinson, one of UHC's independent dealers, for
breach of contract and unfair competition after he terminated
their contract and began renting Budget trucks from what was
formerly a UHC dealership (Robinson I).  UHC alleged a covenant
not to compete in the UHC dealer contract prohibited Robinson from
offering the products of UHC's competitors while a Yellow Pages
ad, running at UHC's expense, was still promoting Robinson's
business as a U-Haul dealership.

Robinson filed a cross-complaint seeking to avoid enforcement of
the covenant not to compete by, among other things, seeking a
judicial declaration that it was void due to fraud in the
inducement.

After UHC lost its request for a preliminary injunction and
dismissed its complaint, Robinson filed a separate action alleging
malicious prosecution by UHC in the prior lawsuit and violation by
U-Haul of Business and Professions Code section 17200, et seq.,
also known as the unfair competition law (UCL) (Robinson II).  He
based his UCL cause of action on UHC's inclusion of the covenant
not to compete in its dealer contracts, which he alleged was
illegal, and its aggressive enforcement of that provision through
litigation and threats of litigation.

A jury awarded Robinson more than $195,000 in compensatory damages
for malicious prosecution.  The trial court later issued a
permanent injunction prohibiting U-Haul from initiating or
threatening to initiate judicial proceedings to enforce the
noncompetition covenant in California.  It awarded Robinson more
than $800,000 in attorney's fees as a private attorney general on
his UCL cause of action.

On appeal, the U-Haul defendants argued that (1) the trial court
committed reversible error in issuing a permanent injunction
because UHC had voluntarily abandoned enforcement of the covenant
not to compete in California, and (2) the court abused its
discretion in awarding attorney's fees to Robinson as a private
attorney general because Robinson's request for fees was late-
filed.

The appellate court, however, concluded the injunction was
properly entered and the court did not abuse its discretion in
allowing Robinson to file a late motion for attorney's fees.
