alleged exposure to 18 asbestos and asbestos-containing products.

According to the complaint, Plaintiff Clarence Nesslein has been
diagnosed with a disease related to exposure to asbestos and
asbestos-containing products.  He used, handled or was otherwise
exposed to asbestos and asbestos-containing products.  The
Plaintiffs contend that his cumulative exposure to asbestos as a
result of acts and omissions of the Defendants and the defective
products was a substantial factor in increasing his risk of lung
cancer and other related injuries.

The Plaintiffs were married on December 31, 1992, and are husband
and wife.  Plaintiff Janet Nesslein alleges that due to his
illness, Mr. Nesslein was and is unable to perform his necessary
duties as a spouse.  As a proximate result thereof, Ms. Nesslein
asserts that she was deprived of the consortium of her spouse.

The Defendants and their "alternate entities," were and are
engaged in the business of researching, manufacturing,
fabricating, designing, modifying, labeling, instructing,
assembling, distributing, leasing, buying, offering for sale,

ALLEN MARKETING: Faces TCPA Class Action in Florida
---------------------------------------------------
Jenie Mallari-Torres, writing for Florida Record, reports that
individuals have filed a class-action lawsuit against Festiva
Development Group Inc. and Allen Marketing Group Inc.,
telemarketers, citing alleged violation of the Telephone Consumer
Protection Act (TCPA).

Diana Mey filed a complaint individually and on behalf of a class
of all persons and entities similarly situated on Oct. 20, in the
U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida Orlando
Division against the defendants alleging that they violated TCPA
through intrusive and unwanted calls.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that, since
September, Diana Mey and class members, received multiple emails
and automated calls from Defendant Allen on their cellular
telephone that have been on the National Do Not Call Registry for
more than 31 days and without prior expressed written consent from
the recipients, attempting to generate new businesses for its
client Defendant Festiva, who hired the marketing services of
Allen to sell their vacation services, thereby causing plaintiffs
to suffer from unwelcome intrusions on their privacy and occupied
their telephone lines for legitimate calls.

The plaintiffs hold Festiva Development Group Inc. and Allen
Marketing Group Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly
manipulated the caller ID number to make it appear as a local
number, contacted plaintiffs without prior expressed written
consent, and failed to take effective steps to force the hired
telemarketing company to cease their unlawful conduct.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against
defendants, certify case as a class action, enjoin defendants from
further violation, damages, attorneys' fees and costs, and other
relief as is just.  They are represented by Scott D. Owens of
Scott D. Owens PA in Miami, Edward A. Broderick and Anthony
Paronich -- anthony@broderick-law.com -- of Broderick & Paronich
PC in Boston and Matthew P. McCue of The Law Office of Matthew P.
McCue in Natick, Massachusetts.

AMERICAN AIRLINES: Judge Allows Price-Fixing Suit to Proceed
------------------------------------------------------------
Reuters reports that a federal judge rejected a bid by the four
largest U.S. airlines to dismiss nationwide antitrust litigation
by passengers who accused them of conspiring to raise fares by
keeping seating capacity artificially low.

In a decision on Oct. 28, U.S. District Judge Colleen
Kollar-Kotelly said she could "reasonably infer the existence of a
conspiracy" among American Airlines Group, Delta Air Lines,
Southwest Airlines and United Continental Holdings to fix prices.

Judge Kollar-Kotelly, who sits in Washington, D.C., did not rule
on the merits of the proposed class-action case, which combines
105 lawsuits filed around the country and seeks triple damages.

The U.S. Department of Justice last year began its own probe into
a possible conspiracy among the airlines, which, according to
government data, command a roughly 69-percent domestic market
share.

Passengers claimed that the conspiracy began in early 2009, and
has resulted in higher fares and reduced flight choices.

They said the conspiracy, together with low fuel prices and higher
fees for checking bags and other services, helped the airlines
post a record $21.7 billion combined profit in 2015.

The airlines said the litigation should be dismissed because there
was no proof of an agreement to collude, or that they reduced
capacity in tandem.

But in her 41-page decision, Judge Kollar-Kotelly pointed to
statements by several airline executives about the need for
"discipline" in seating capacity.

"Starting in 2009, the industry experienced limited capacity
growth," the judge wrote.  "Notably, as defendants' executives
acknowledged, this restriction on growing capacity was a marked
change within the industry.  The court is satisfied that at this
stage, plaintiffs sufficiently pled parallel conduct."

Judge Kollar-Kotelly said this was true even for Southwest, though
its use of a single aircraft type and other factors gave it a
"limited ability" to reduce capacity.

American spokesman Matt Miller called the plaintiffs' claims
"plainly deficient," and said the carrier is confident they will
be found meritless.

Delta had no immediate comment.  Southwest spokesman Brad Hawkins
declined to comment.  United did not immediately respond to
requests for comment.

Michael Hausfeld, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, called the decision
a "substantial victory" for passengers.  "We look forward to
moving forward aggressively to secure the relief the public
deserves," he added.

The case is In re: Domestic Airline Travel Antitrust Litigation,
U.S. District Court, District of Columbia, No. 15-mc-01404.


AMERICAN SUGAR: Fails to Pay OT Under FLSA, "Rosario" Suit Claims
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ROBERT ROSARIO, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated v. AMERICAN SUGAR REFINING, INC. c/o Corporate Creations
Network, Inc., Case No. 1:16-cv-02639 (N.D. Ohio, October 28,
2016), is a "collective action" instituted by the Plaintiff as a
result of the Defendant's alleged practice and policy of failing
to pay him and other similarly-situated employees for all time
worked and overtime compensation at the rate of one and one-half
times their regular rates of pay for all of the hours they worked
over 40 each workweek, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards
Act.

ARCADIA, CA: Chinese American Rights Group Mulls Lawsuit
--------------------------------------------------------
Christopher Yee, writing for Pasadena Star-News, reports that a
Chinese American rights group is threatening to sue the city if it
does not switch from at-large City Council elections to ones by
district, a change they say will help increase the representation
of Asian Americans on the dais.

In a letter sent to Mayor Tom Beck Oct. 17, the HQH Chinese
American Equalization Association claims the at-large election
system results in "Asian-American vote dilution and prevents
Asian-American voters from electing candidates of their choice."

According to 2010 U.S. Census data, Asians represent 60 percent of
the city's population of 56,364 and about 46 percent of its
registered voters.  The letter points out that, in that time, the
City Council has had no more than two Asian American members
serving at the same time.

Mr. Beck said districts will only serve to create council members
solely concerned with their designated areas instead of ones
interested in the welfare of the entire city.

"There's not some area of town that's strictly Asian and
unrepresented," Mr. Beck said.  "I would be in favor of going to
district elections if we had a problem, but we don't have a
problem."

Richard McDonald, the lawyer representing the association, said
the problem is clear when the city has an Asian American majority
population and can't ever elect more than two Asian American
candidates at once.

Mr. McDonald, who was a member of Pasadena's redistricting task
force in 2011, said that while Asian American voters may have the
power to elect city council members by voting as a block, they
have been discouraged from doing so by seeing other candidates win
seats over Asian American candidates over the years.

"If over a prolonged time they see their vote doesn't matter
because the same numerical minority is electing the city council,
that's where over a longer period of time you see the voter
dilution problem that redistricting is designed to remedy,"
Mr. McDonald said.

Mr. Beck said he and other city officials intend to meet with
Mr. McDonald and members of the association to discuss the letter
and its demands, and the City Council is set to discuss the
potential lawsuit in closed session at its meeting on Oct. 25.

Former City Councilman John Wuo said he did not feel Asian
American voters were excluded, but he feels the voter turnout
numbers indicate that they may not be educated enough about the
local voting process.

Mr. Wuo received the second-most votes when he ran for
re-election in 2012 with two seats on the council open.  He
received 3,000 votes with 6,923 ballots cast, although the city
boasted 28,126 voters.

"Turnout is very low in general, so a lot of times maybe (Asian
Americans are) just not exercising their voting rights, but I
think they should," Mr. Wuo said.  "If it didn't turn out the way
you wanted, you can't blame anybody if you didn't vote."

Mr. Wuo resigned last October amid alleged violations of the
Political Reform Act and a class action lawsuit was filed alleging
Mr. Wuo was involved with a company that is suspected of
defrauding investors in a $32 million "pyramid scheme."

However, Mr. Wuo agreed with Mr. Beck, saying that districts would
pull the city apart rather than unite its residents.

"I'm pretty sure anyone who runs for City Council is happy to
serve the entire city and not just the area in which they live,"
he said.

CORRECTIONS CORP: Judge Appoints Expert in Price Recordings Case
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Associated Press reports that a federal judge in Kansas has
appointed an Ohio attorney to investigate whether recordings of
attorney-client meetings and phone calls at a privately run
federal prison violated the inmates' constitutional right to a
fair trial.

U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson on Oct. 11 named
David R. Cohen as special master, or expert, to examine audio and
video recordings from the Corrections Corp. of America prison in
Leavenworth and identify any confidential information contained in
them.

The recordings came to light in August after federal prosecutors
tried to force a defense attorney off two cases using footage
subpoenaed by a grand jury in a broad contraband probe at the
prison, according to court documents.

The subpoena sought all surveillance footage at the prison as part
of an investigation into a conspiracy involving as many as 95
inmates and 60 people outside the facility.  The thousands of
hours of video turned over to investigators included footage of
attorneys meeting with clients.

Mr. Cohen's initial duty will be to evaluate whether it's
economically feasible to dig through the massive amount of
recordings and identify and retain privileged information.

The Cleveland lawyer will be compensated at a rate of $500 an
hour, which the judge ordered the federal government to pay.

In September, Judge Robinson accused an assistant prosecutor of
improperly trying to access her chambers -- where video evidence
from CCA has been impounded -- after hours while the judge was on
vacation.

Judge Robinson initially said she was considering whether the
special master should also investigate the actions of the
prosecutor's office, but in her Oct. 11 order said that won't be
part of Cohen's efforts "at this time."

Mr. Cohen recently served as a special master in a federal class-
action lawsuit against Sprint Nextel Corp.

FORD MOTOR: Transport Canada Investigates Ford Fiesta Complaints
----------------------------------------------------------------
Yvonne Colbert, writing for CBC News, reports that Transport
Canada is investigating a "significant" number of concerns over
Ford Focus and Fiesta models after owners reported their cars
acted erratically, in some cases jerking forward or stopping
suddenly.

The federal department opened what it calls a "defect
investigation" in February 2016.  As of Oct. 20, it had received
complaints from 128 Canadians about the transmission in some 2011-
2016 Ford Fiesta and 2012-2016 Ford Focus vehicles.

One of those complainants is Jordan Bonaparte, a Halifax man who
bought a new Focus in early 2013 as he and his wife awaited the
birth of their son.

"I don't think it's safe to be on the road," he said.

'The car would jerk forward'

Mr. Bonaparte wanted a vehicle that was safe, reliable and worry-
free.  The Focus was sold as an automatic, so the couple had no
idea it was run by a manual transmission that shifted
automatically with the help of a computer.  That means the driver
has a traditional automatic shifter with park, reverse, neutral
and drive options, while the computer does the work of operating
the clutch and shifting gears.

Mr. Bonaparte said, about a month after the purchase, the car
started rumbling when he accelerated.

"It would go from bumping to, all of a sudden, the car would jerk
forward five or seven feet," he said.  "The biggest issue at first
was my fear of hitting the car in front of me or slowing down and
having the car behind me hit me."

When stopped on an incline, the car would also roll backward as
Mr. Bonaparte tried to move forward.

3 replacements

The Ford dealership gave him differing reasons for the problem, he
said.

"It had to do with multiple drivers of the car [or] it was normal
operation of the transmission," Mr. Bonaparte said.

With approximately 45,000 kilometres on the vehicle,
Mr. Bonaparte was waiting for his third transmission or clutch
replacement when he spoke to CBC News earlier in October.

He said the prior two replacements gave him about a month of
fairly smooth driving until the problem started again.

The problems were so bad after the last replacement that he and
his wife stopped driving their three-year-old son in it.

'They fear for their safety'

Mr. Bonaparte and his wife aren't alone.  Toronto lawyer
Ted Charney says he is preparing a national class action lawsuit
against Ford over what he calls a "transmission defect."

Mr. Charney said his firm has been contacted by 1,000 Canadians,
some of whom he says have had their transmission replaced as many
as seven times.

"All of the calls are pretty much the same," Mr. Charney said.
"They fear for their safety, they don't want their family in these
cars."

Mr. Charney, who estimates there are 150,000 affected vehicles in
Canada, said there are also class action lawsuits underway in the
U.S. and Australia.

Lawyer not aware of injuries or fatalities

He's not aware of injuries or fatalities because of the problem,
but has received "a number of complaints from people who have been
in accidents which they attribute to the defects in this vehicle,
because the vehicle lurches forward or it doesn't proceed forward
when they step on the pedal to accelerate or it suddenly stops."

"Many of them have been in situations where they have almost had
an accident," he said.

Like some of Mr. Charney's clients, Ford offered Bonaparte a
discount on the purchase of a new vehicle.  Mr. Charney said
that's not enough.

"What people have to decide now is whether to park the car or get
rid of it at a very low price or just keep driving it and taking
their chances.  I mean, it's a very difficult situation."

'It's only a matter of time'

Mr. Bonaparte said he's been asking for a rental for three years
but only got one recently as he waited for his third transmission
replacement.

"Only after speaking to you -- and letting Ford know that I was
speaking with you -- did they agree to offer me a rental car,
something that I'd been asking for since the first transmission
was replaced," he told CBC News.

He thinks Ford should recall the vehicles.

"It's only a matter of time before someone's killed,"
Mr. Bonaparte said.

Company says it's discussing solutions

Ford Canada said it takes customer concerns seriously and is
"committed to investigating those concerns and responding to our
customers." Spokeswoman Michelle Lee-Gracey said in an email that
the company continues to discuss solutions with Bonaparte.

Transport Canada says anyone with a concern about vehicle safety
should report it to them.

It's in the process of separating driveability and service-related
issues on the Ford models from those that are safety-related, such
as loss of propulsion, according to an email from a Transport
Canada spokeswoman.

GENWORTH FINANCIAL: Class Action Law Firms Eye Chinese Firm Deal
----------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Schwartz, writing for Richmond BizSense, reports that  law
firms from around the country wasted little time in pouncing on
the proposed $2.7 billion deal that will put locally based
Genworth Financial under ownership of a Chinese conglomerate.

Less than 24 hours after the deal was announced on Oct. 24, press
releases hit online wires announcing that various law firms were
"investigating" the transaction and whether it's fair or in
Genworth shareholders' best interests.

The announcements came from law firms in New York, New Orleans,
Dallas and elsewhere, with most questioning the per-share price
offered to the Henrico-based insurance giant by suitor China
Oceanwide Holdings Group.  According to the agreed-upon terms,
Genworth shareholders will receive $5.43 in cash for each share
they own, amounting to a $0.22 per share premium based on the
closing price of the company's stock prior to the deal
announcement.

San Diego law firm Robbins Arroyo, for example, states that its
investigation "focuses on whether the board of directors at
Genworth Financial is undertaking a fair process to obtain maximum
value and adequately compensate its shareholders."

The firm questions the per share price, pointing out that the 4.2
percent per share premium that Oceanwide is offering is
"significantly below the average one day premium of nearly 46.27
percent for comparable transactions within the past three years."

That firm goes on to inform shareholders of their option to file a
class action lawsuit.

The law firms' efforts are not uncommon and have become a kind of
rite of passage for many big merger and acquisition deals for
companies in any sort of industry.

The law firms' press releases are always similarly worded with a
focus on supposed investigations, with a goal of locating unhappy
shareholders willing to put their names on lawsuits that often
look to block the deals, force changes in the terms or extract
potentially lucrative settlements.

Such suits are often settled, dropped altogether or can lead to
amendments in the language of the proposed transactions.

The practice has affected a spectrum of Richmond deals both large
and small in recent years, including local Fortune 500 Owens &
Minor's $208 million acquisition of a medical supply company in
New York.

Locally based Union Bankshare's acquisition of StellarOne Bank
also caught the eye of class-action firms, resulting in a lawsuit
that quickly moved toward a settlement.

As of Oct. 28, no suits had been filed in federal courts related
to the Genworth/China Oceanwide deal.

Asked how and whether the company prepared for this legal trend, a
Genworth spokesperson said the company does not comment on legal
matters.

JOHNSON & JOHNSON'S: Hit with $70MM Jury Verdict in Talc Case
-------------------------------------------------------------
Jim Salter, writing for The Associated Press, reports that when
Deborah Giannecchini was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer
four years ago, it didn't make sense.  She had no family history,
nor did she seem a high risk.

But months later, when her daughter saw a TV ad for a law firm
asking ovarian cancer victims who used talcum powder to come
forward, Ms. Giannecchini realized a possible link: She had been
using Johnson & Johnson's baby powder for most of her life.

"I used it for 45 years, from age 15," Ms. Giannecchini, now 63,
said on Oct. 28.  "I was still using it."

On Oct. 27, a St. Louis jury awarded more than $70 million to
Ms. Giannecchini, of Modesto, Calif., wrapping up a monthlong
trial. It was the third big verdict awarded by a St. Louis jury
against Johnson & Johnson in ovarian cancer lawsuits this year.
Combined, the three awards amount to nearly $200 million.

Ms. Giannecchini said she was happy with the verdict, but it
doesn't make up for the cancer fight and ongoing health problems
caused by chemotherapy.

"There's not enough money in the world to pay for fighting the
cancer," she said at a news conference arranged by her lawyers.

A spokeswoman for Johnson & Johnson said in a statement that while
the company sympathizes with women and their families affected by
ovarian cancer, it will appeal the latest verdict "because we are
guided by the science, which supports the safety of Johnson's Baby
Powder."

About 2,000 women nationwide have filed similar suits over
concerns about health damage caused by extended talcum powder use.
Lawyers are reviewing many additional cases, many of them
generated by television ads by law firms.

In February, a St. Louis jury awarded $72 million to relatives of
an Alabama woman who died of ovarian cancer.  Another jury awarded
$55 million in May to a South Dakota survivor of the disease.

But two cases in New Jersey were thrown out by a judge who said
there wasn't reliable evidence that talc leads to ovarian cancer,
an often fatal but relatively rare form of cancer.

Ovarian cancer accounts for about 22,000 of the 1.7 million new
cases of cancer expected to be diagnosed in the United States this
year.  Factors known to increase a women's risk of ovarian cancer
include age, obesity, use of estrogen therapy after menopause, not
having any children, certain genetic mutations, and personal or
family history of breast or ovarian cancer.

Talc is a mineral that is mined from deposits around the world,
including the United States.  The softest of minerals, it's
crushed into a white powder.  It's been widely used in cosmetics
and other personal care products to absorb moisture since at least
1894, when Johnson & Johnson's baby powder was launched. But it's
mainly used in a variety of other products, including paint and
plastics.

Much research has found no link or a weak one between ovarian
cancer and using baby powder for feminine hygiene, and most major
health groups have declared talc harmless.  Still, the
International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies genital use
of talc as "possibly carcinogenic."

Attorneys with Onder, Shelton, O'Leary & Peterson, the firm that
handled all three St. Louis cases, cited other research that began
connecting talcum powder to ovarian cancer in the 1970s. They cite
case studies showing that women who regularly use talc on their
genital area face up to a 40 percent higher risk of developing
ovarian cancer.

The firm has also accused Johnson & Johnson of marketing toward
overweight women, blacks, and Hispanics -- the very same women
most at-risk for ovarian cancer.

Wylie Blair, an attorney for Ms. Giannecchini, said the firm is
working with about 1,700 additional plaintiffs.  Another trial is
scheduled for February.

Mr. Blair said there has been no talk with Johnson & Johnson about
a class-action settlement.

"Acknowledging that a seminal product that everybody identifies
with the company has been causing a horrible disease for all these
years is going to be a tough pill to swallow for them," Blair
said.

Ms. Giannecchini said that as of now there is no evidence of
cancer, but she won't know for years if she is free of the
disease.

"One day at a time," she said.  "Just stay hopeful."

LUMBER LIQUIDATORS: Hardwood Flooring Settlement Hits Income
------------------------------------------------------------
Abhijith Ganapavaram and Gayathree Ganesan, writing for Reuters,
report that Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc reported quarterly
sales growth for the first time in six quarters as demand
recovered for its hardwood flooring, a sign that customers were
less concerned that some its products may cause cancer.

Sales of Lumber Liquidators, which owns brands such as Bellawood
hardwood flooring, have been in a decline since a report from CBS
last year that some of the company's flooring products had high
levels of formaldehyde, a known cancer agent.

Lumber Liquidators has, since then, agreed to implement a strict
environmental compliance plan and conduct a free air-testing
program in a settlement with regulators.   It has also been
discounting its products heavily to woo back increasingly eco-
sensitive consumers.

Same-store sales rose 1 percent for the third quarter ended
Sept. 30, compared to a 3.8 percent fall analysts polled by
research firm Consensus Metrix had expected.

However, net loss widened to $18.44 million or 68 cents in the
quarter, from $8.5 million or 31 cents per share, a year earlier,
partly hit by a $4.3 million charge related to settlement of a
securities class action lawsuit.

Analysts on average had expected the company to post a loss of 19
cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

The company's net sales rose 3.4 percent to $244.1 million,
beating estimates of $231.6 million.

NAT'L HOCKEY: Junior Players' Compensation Class Action Ongoing
---------------------------------------------------------------
Scott Stinson, writing for National Post, reports that the IIHF
confirmed on Oct. 28 that the next edition of the World Junior
Hockey Championship to be played outside Canada will include an
outdoor game between the United States and Canada.

The game, at New Era Field in Orchard Park -- normally the Buffalo
Bills' sadness factory -- could have as many as 70,000 fans in
attendance, making massive piles of money for the tournament
organizers.

As is custom in junior hockey, none of that will be shared with
the players.

News about the latest way to increase the take from the World
Juniors comes a week after the Vancouver Sun reported that the
B.C. government last year exempted the province's six major-junior
hockey teams from minimum-wage laws after lobbying from the
Western Hockey League.  That decision comes amid ongoing class-
action lawsuits that demand better compensation for junior players
who make a small monthly stipend and little else.

And in the latest development in that case, an Alberta judge on
Oct. 28 ruled that the WHL and the Ontario Hockey League must hand
over financial details about its franchises, which have long
insisted that any attempt to fundamentally change the way its
players are compensated would bankrupt most of them and cripple
the leagues.

The court ruling, which is related to class-action lawsuits that
were filed two years ago, has the potential to finally blow open
what has been a long stalemate: on one side, those who insist that
junior players are exploited by a system that relies on the cheap
labour of teenagers pursuing the dream of a hockey career, and on
the other, the leagues that insist that only a handful of
franchises turn a profit.

This has been the defence of the junior leagues at every attempt
to force change, whether it's the potential formation of a
players' union, or arguments that players should be paid a salary
or have better post-career education benefits: that so many
franchises are barely afloat to begin with that further burdens
would send them straight under water.  The teams are privately
owned, though, so you just have to take their word that they are
losing piles of money.

No doubt some of them are, with a cash machine like the London
Knights not representative of the average team's experience. But
it sure would be interesting if the court case makes clear just
how many junior teams would truly be crippled by having to pay
their players some kind of minimum wage.

The argument against paying junior players often includes the
suggestion that many teams exist for altruistic reasons -- they
provide a place for young players to develop, and they give local
fans an opportunity to see good hockey at a reasonable price.  The
owners don't quite say that they are doing it out of the goodness
of their hearts, but the implication is there.  Besides, the
argument goes, these kids are lucky to be chosen to play at such a
high level.  Shouldn't they just enjoy the experience for a couple
of seasons and worry about their careers later?

But it wasn't all that long ago that athletes playing at the
highest levels of professional sport were expected to be thankful
for the opportunity and not demand much else.  They didn't have
pensions, they served at the whim of cantankerous owners, and the
idea of a player being able to choose his own team was laughable.

Conn Smythe, as the owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the early
1950s, demoted two players to the minor leagues because they had
the temerity to get married without his permission.  NHL players
often took second jobs in the off-season, and it wasn't unusual
for them to work for their team owner's other businesses, driving
a truck or working in construction.

That kind of stuff seems ridiculous now, but before unions forced
change in pro leagues, there were the same kinds of arguments
being made against better compensating professionals -- that they
should be grateful to just be in the league since it's a dream job
-- that are made against compensating amateurs today.

Junior hockey is hardly the only holdout.  The NCAA makes billions
off its athletes, and wouldn't hesitate to ban a player who sells
an autographed photo for $10.  Major League Baseball makes huge
revenues and pays its players accordingly, but its minor-league
affiliates are stocked with prospects living in poverty, even
though the majors are totally reliant on the minors to feed talent
up through the system.  There are ongoing court efforts to force
teams to pay minimum wages there, too, and the defence is much the
same: if small teams had to pay larger salaries, the whole system
would collapse.

Would it, though? When Conn Smythe and James Norris and the other
old, rich men of hockey were trying to stave off the formation of
a players association in the late 1950s, they warned that granting
their players rights that were common to workers in other
professions would destroy the sport.

It seems to have turned out OK.

PETROBRAS: Settles Four Shareholder Suits Over Corruption Probe
---------------------------------------------------------------
Nicolas Torres, writing for Petro Global News, reports that
Brazil's Petrobras has reportedly agreed to settle four
shareholder lawsuits brought against the firm for alleged losses
tied to an ongoing corruption probe.

According to Reuters, the state-owned company's board approved
four settlements with groups of Petrobras shareholders on
Oct. 28.

Petrobras told Reuters that it plans to earmark just over $350
million to settle cases with PIMCO Total Return Fund, Dodge & Cox
International Stock Fund, Janus Overseas Fund and Al Shams
Investments.

PIMCO filed suit against Petrobras last October, alleging that
company executives knew about graft and kickback schemes tied to
company contracts.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the lawsuit also alleged
that the bribery scheme called "the integrity of the company as a
whole" into question.

PIMCO's suit was filed one month after the Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation Trust filed a lawsuit against Petrobras and its
auditor, alleging the scandal caused the trust to lose millions of
dollars.

The four settlements would only resolve a small number of the 27
individual lawsuits and one class action case that have been
brought against Petrobras in U.S. courts.

Several legal experts told Reuters that the move may signal that
Petrobras is ready consider more settlements.

An investor with knowledge of the settlements told Reuters on Oct.
24 that the agreements are "a sign that corporate governance has
materially improved" at the company.

Brazilian officials have been investigating kickbacks and graft
related to Petrobras contracts since 2014.

The investigation, known as Operation Car Wash, has landed several
prominent Brazilian businessmen and politicians in jail including
former senator Gim Argello and construction tycoon Marcelo
Odebrecht.

Earlier this year, Petrobras attorneys asked a U.S. district court
judge to throw-out a multi-billion shareholder lawsuit against the
company, arguing that company executives were unaware of the
corruption schemes.

The lawsuit, filed in December by New York law firm Wolf Popper,
alleges that "a culture of corruption" at Petrobras caused the
value of some major projects to be overstated, artificially
inflating stocks and bonds worth about $98 billion.

In February, A U.S. federal judge in Manhattan ruled that
Petrobras must face a class action case filed by investors looking
to recover losses tied to the scandal.

One of plaintiff classes covers Petrobras securities purchased
from January 2010 to July 2015 and will be headed by UK-based
Universities Superannuation Scheme, according to Reuters.

The second class covers securities that were purchased in 2013 and
2014 and will be led by North Carolina's treasurer and the
Employees' Retirement System of Hawaii.

UBER TECHNOLOGIES: Drivers Entitled to Workers' Rights in UK
------------------------------------------------------------
William Louch and Greg Bensinger, writing for The Wall Street
Journal, report that drivers for Uber Technologies are entitled to
workers' rights including paid holidays and the minimum wage, a
London tribunal has ruled, a potential setback for the ride-
hailing service that could further jeopardize its high-flying
business model.

The ruling could affect about 30,000 Uber drivers in London and
significantly raise the company's costs there.  Uber, which argues
it is a technology platform that matches riders with drivers, has
relied on a contractor workforce of motorists who take on their
own expenses such as insurance, fuel and car upkeep.

Uber is waging similar fights in the US.  It offered $US100
million ($132m) to settle a class action suit by drivers in
California and Massachusetts who sought to be treated like regular
employees, but the settlement was rejected by a judge in August.

The battles over employment status add to Uber's regulatory
headaches around the world, as politicians from Austin, Texas, to
Buenos Aires to New Delhi question whether ride-hailing apps
threaten passenger safety and should be regulated like taxi
companies.

The ruling by the Central London Employment Tribunal brings to an
end the first such legal action in Britain, which was brought by
one current and one former Uber driver and will determine 17 more
driver claims against the company.

Uber said it would appeal the tribunal decision.  "This is a
preliminary hearing, and not a final determination on the question
of whether the claimants have or have not received the national
minimum wage," Uber said.  "The vast majority of people who have
chosen to drive with the Uber app have done so in order to be
their own boss and choose when and where they drive."

Contractor status is crucial for Uber and other so-called on-
demand companies that rely on a pool of freelance workers to drive
taxis, clean houses, fetch food or perform other menial tasks.
Those firms say they would likely have to raise prices.

Uber, valued this year at $US68 billion by its investors, has
maintained it is a technology company, not a taxi company, and its
drivers are self-employed workers who are free to work as little
or as often as they like.

Consequently, it has said its drivers aren't entitled to the most
basic of workers' rights.

WESTERN HOCKEY: Teams Ordered by Court to Reveal Finances
---------------------------------------------------------
Ian Mulgrew, writing for Vancouver Sun, reports that Canadian and
Western Hockey League teams have been ordered to reveal their
finances in a player's class-action lawsuit for failure to meet
employment standards.

In a big win for the major junior players, Alberta Court of
Queen's Bench Justice R. J. Hall said the teams must produce
evidence to back their claims that their financial straits are so
dire they can't afford to pay the talent.

The leagues argued the disclosure order was too broad and the
money numbers should not be revealed until after the lawsuit was
certified, but the judge disagreed.

He said the league must prove its assertions that the players'
demands would have such a bad financial effect on the clubs some
would be forced to close.

"(The order) short circuits the necessity for a sham examination
on affidavits before the application is brought, and conserves
court time and litigation expense," Justice Hall ruled on
Oct. 28.  "Having placed the clubs' and leagues' financial
viability squarely into issue, the CHL, the WHL and the clubs must
produce their financial documents as potentially proving their
position, or placing their evidence into dispute."

Neither league responded by deadline to a request for comment.

While some teams in the leagues that provide NHL apprenticeships
may be teetering financially, big market teams appear to be
earning large profits.  Besides tickets and concession earnings,
the teams make money on merchandise sales, television rights, NHL
payments, video-game licenses and other revenue streams.  Some are
businesses worth tens of millions.

Meanwhile, the 16- to 20-year-old players are billeted, treated
like indentured servants and are paid small stipends.  They can
earn scholarships that provide a year of post-secondary schooling
for each year played, if they dress for enough games and meet
other criteria.

"When the players told me they were getting $50 a week, I couldn't
believe it," said Toronto lawyer Ted Charney, who is stickhandling
the class-action suits.

The players have been referred to in league documents and
contracts as "professional," they have been issued T-4 slips,
others obtained work permits, and the U.S. National Collegiate
Athletic Association considers them to be professionals.  The
teams and players have been found by the federal Tax Court to be
in an employee-employer relationship.

Yet, the leagues maintain they are "student athletes" and in
February privately persuaded the B.C. government to exempt them
from the minimum wage and employment standards laws without
examining their finances.  They were successful in persuading
Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia and Washington state to do the same.

"I just wish that the three legislatures and the state of
Washington had an opportunity to review all these financials
statements before they legislated us out of our class action," Mr.
Charney complained.

"We're pleased with the judge's decision.  It will give us an
opportunity to weigh the statements that the commissioners have
made with respect to the financial strength of the leagues against
what the actual financial statements and leaguewide profit-sharing
agreements reveal."

Led by Langley's Lukas Walter, the past and former players are
seeking millions in lost wages, holiday pay and want the league,
in future, to pay the minimum wage and respect job laws.

The Alberta suit, which has yet to be certified, is a mirror of
litigation launched in Ontario, also still to be certified,
against the major junior teams of Eastern Canada.

While this order applies to the WHL and Ontario teams, because
they filed affidavits in the Alberta litigation, it does not apply
to CHL teams in Quebec and the Maritimes.

The Ontario teams can also avoid disclosure by withdrawing their
Alberta affidavits, though Mr. Charney said the players will seek
a similar order in the eastern action.

Hall ordered the clubs to produce financial statements and tax
returns from 2011 to the present.  He ordered WHL commissioner
Ron Robison to produce all revenue-sharing agreements showing how
the umbrella organization for 60 teams from Victoria to Halifax
earns revenue.  He also ordered Robison and CHL president David
Branch to provide the documentation for the financial claims they
made.

"I would have thought the commissioners and the CHL and the WHL
would have welcomed this ruling because it will give them an
opportunity to reinforce what their previous statements have
said," Mr. Charney quipped.

"Presumably, they are of the opinion these documents will back
them up, I'm surprised they haven't voluntarily produced them and
that it took us having to go to court and obtain a court order.
You can put sarcasm emphasized.  In my 30 years of practicing law
and in all of my years conducting class actions, I've never come
across a case where the defence was please don't certify this
class action because I'll go broke if you do!"

There is a four-day certification hearing set for Calgary in
February and a three-day hearing set for Toronto in March.
