INC., a California corporation; and DOES 1 -50, inclusive,

162 FULLER STREET: "Shakhnovich" Sues Over Property Encroachment
----------------------------------------------------------------
Boris Shakhnovich, Derivatively on behalf of the Association of
Unit Owners of the 162 Fuller Street Condominium and Individually,
Plaintiff, v. Steven Nace, Individually, Shelly Chin,
Individually, Larry Engel, Individually, Anna Golja, Individually,
and The 162 Fuller Street Condominium Trust, as the Representative
of the Association of Unit Owners of the 162 Fuller Street
Condominium Defendants., Case No. 161412 (Mass. Cmmw., November 8,

AFNI INC: "Blueford" Counsel Defends Placeholder Class Bid
----------------------------------------------------------
NICOLE BLUEFORD, Individually and on Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, Plaintiff, v. AFNI, INC., Defendant, Case No.
16-cv-1067 (E.D. Wisc.), moves the Court to certify the class
described in the amended complaint, and further requests that the
Court both stay the motion for class certification and to grant
Plaintiff (and Defendant) relief from the Local Rules setting
automatic briefing schedules and requiring briefs and supporting
material to be filed with the motion.

Plaintiff's lawyers at Ademi & O'Reilly, LLP, contend that Damasco
and decisions like it imposed significant burdens on the Court and
on Plaintiff's Counsel. Damasco v. Clearwire Corp., 662 F.3d 891
(7th Cir. 2011), overruled, Chapman v. First Index, Inc., 796 F.3d
783, 787 (7th Cir. 2015).  To avoid the risk of a defendant
mooting a putative class representative's individual stake in the
litigation, the Seventh Circuit in Damasco instructed plaintiffs
to file a certification motion with the complaint, along with a
motion to stay briefing on the certification motion until
discovery could commence.

The firm's John D. Blythin tells the District Court that the
Supreme Court's decision in Campbell-Ewald Co. v. Gomez, 136 S.
Ct. 663 (2016) and Chapman should have put a stop to this
practice.  Unfortunately, they have not.  In dicta, the Supreme
Court left open the possibility that a defendant facing a class
action complaint could moot a class representative's case by
depositing funds equal to or in excess of the maximum value of the
plaintiff's claim with the court and having the court enter
judgment in the plaintiff's favor prior to a class certification
motion. Campbell-Ewald Co., 136 S. Ct. at 672 ("We need not, and
do not, now decide whether the result would be different if a
defendant deposits the full amount of the plaintiff's individual
claim in an account payable to the plaintiff, and the court then
enters judgment for the plaintiff in that amount.").

According to Mr. Blythin, one defendant has already attempted the
scheme contemplated in Campbell-Ewald. In Severns v. Eastern
Account Systems of Connecticut, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-1168, 2016
U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23164 (E.D. Wis., Feb. 24, 2016), the defendant
moved the Court for leave to deposit funds.  Judge Randa denied
the request on grounds that a motion for class certification was
pending at the time of the defendant's motion.  Plaintiff is
obligated to move for class certification to protect the interests
of the putative class.

Mr. Blythin said, "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 a second amended motion is
filed.

"One of the judges in this District has, in the past, specifically
requested of Plaintiff's counsel that he not file a brief and
supporting documents in support of a class certification motion
filed with a complaint pursuant to Damasco. But doing so would
violate the local rules absent the type of relief sought in this
motion."

wages due, liquidated damages, costs of this action, attorneys'
fees, prejudgment and post-judgment interest and such other and
further relief under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

ALLERGAN PLC: "Haile" Sues Over Share Price Drop
------------------------------------------------
Charles Richard Haile, Jr., individually and on behalf of all
others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. Allergan PLC, Brenton L.
Saunders, Paul M. Bisaro, Maria Teresa Hilado and R. Todd Joyce,
Defendants, Case No. 1:16-cv-08661 (S.D. N.Y., November 8, 2016),
seeks damages, prejudgment and post-judgment interest, reasonable
attorneys' fees, expert fees and other costs, and such other and
further relief under Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act.

Allergan PLC is a $23B diversified global pharmaceutical company
into global generics, dermatology and aesthetics, CNS, eye care,
urology, gastro-intestinal, cystic fibrosis, cardiovascular and
infectious diseases. It is based in Dublin, Ireland and its U.S.
Administrative Headquarters in Parsippany, New Jersey, USA.

Actavis PLC is a pharmaceutical corporation with its global
headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, and with administrative
headquarters in New Jersey.

On July 26, 2015, Allergan entered into a master purchase
agreement, under which Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. agreed
to acquire Actavis, the Company's global generic pharmaceuticals
business unit. On August 2, 2016, the companies announced the
completion of the acquisition.

Defendants allegedly failed to disclose that Allergan's Actavis
unit and several of its pharmaceutical industry peers colluded to
fix generic drug prices and that Allergan's revenues during the
Class Period were in part the result of illegal conduct.
Allergan's share price fell $9.07, or 4.58%, to close at $188.82
on November 3, 2016 as a result of this.

Plaintiff, as set forth in the attached Certification, acquired
Allergan stock at artificially inflated prices during the Class
Period and lost substantially upon the revelation of the alleged
corrective disclosures.

COMBINED INSURANCE: Class Certification Sought in "Dolmage" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled ANNE DOLMAGE, individually and on behalf of
all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. COMBINED
INSURANCE COMPANY OF AMERICA, an Illinois corporation, the
Defendant, Case No. 1:14-cv-03809 (N.D. Ill.), the Plaintiff asks
the Court to enter an Order granting Plaintiffs' motion for class
certification of:

   "all current and former Dillard's, Inc., employees as well as
   their dependents who were covered at any time between March
   2010 through March 2012, under a hospital indemnity or
   accident insurance policy underwritten by ACE American
   Insurance Company, and were covered by insurance underwritten
   by Combined Insurance at any point in time between April 2000
   and August 2013".

The Plaintiff further asks the Court to appoint Ben Barnow and
Ralph K. Phalen as Class Counsel, and appoint Anne Dolmage as
Class Representative.

According to the complaint, the case is well suited for class
certification. Class members' contracts with Combined Insurance
contained relevant provisions with virtually identical language,
and the Privacy Pledge was distributed to all Class members. Each
Class claim is premised on the same conduct -- Combined
Insurance's failure to maintain reasonable security and to require
that others it worked with do the same -- and the consequences of
such conduct -- the publication of Class members' PII on the
Internet for 16 months and likely longer and the resulting damages
to Class members. Plaintiff's motion for class certification
should be granted.

DISCOVER FINANCIAL: Class Certification Sought in "Gingerich"
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled RACHEL GINGERICH, individually and on behalf
of all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. DISCOVER
FINANCIAL SERVICES INC., Defendant, Case No. 1:16-cv-10226 (E.D.
Mo.), the Plaintiff asks the Court to certify a class consisting
of:

   "(1) all persons in the United States (2) to whose cellular
   telephone number (3) Discover placed a non-emergency telephone
   call (4) using substantially the same system(s) that were used
   to telephone Plaintiff (5) within 4 years of the complaint and
   (6) who did not have a contractual relationship with
   Discover".

The Plaintiff further asks the Court to appoint herself as class
representative, appoint her lawyers as counsel for the class, and
allow herself to file a memorandum in support of the motion after
discovery.

The Plaintiff alleges that Defendant violated the Telephone
Consumer Protection Act by placing calls to consumers' cellular
telephone numbers using an automated telephone dialing system or
pre-recorded voice message without having the consumers' prior
express consent to receive such calls.

DL BUILDERS: Court Denied Class Certification in "Valdovinos"
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Ronald M. Whyte entered an order in the lawsuit entitled
SEBASTIAN VALDOVINOS, et al., the Plaintiffs, v. DL BUILDERS,
INC., et al., the Defendants, Case No. 5:15-cv-04256-NC (N.D.
Cal.), denying without prejudice:

   (1) plaintiffs' motion for class certification;

   (2) defendants' motion for preliminary approval of class
       action settlement; and

   (3) plaintiffs' motion for approval of notice and consent to
       potential class members.

Because the court has denied the motions, the defendants' motion
to strike plaintiffs' declarations is denied as moot.

The Plaintiffs' motion to enlarge time to supply supplemental
briefing is granted, but the court warns that it will not likely
grant similar motions to enlarge time filed after a deadline in
the future.

Should the parties wish to file an amended motion for approval of
a revised settlement agreement, they may refer to the discussion
of the applicable legal standards in Kempen v. Matheson Tri-Gas,
Inc., No. 15-CV-00660-HSG, 2016 WL 4073336 (N.D. Cal. Aug. 1,
2016) and the cited authorities.

EAGLE MARINE: Joint Bid for Class Cert. Sought in "O'Neal" Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit entitled IVAN O'NEAL, on behalf of himself and all
other similarly situated persons, the Plaintiff, v. EAGLE MARINE
CONTRACTING, LLC, d/b/a EM CONTRACTING and d/b/a EM CONTRACTING,
LLC, RAPHAEL G. BURCHFIELD, the Defendants, Case No. 1:16-cv-
00401-KD-B (Ala.), the parties ask the Court to conditionally
certify the case as a collective action and approve notice to the
Plaintiffs.

The Plaintiff filed the lawsuit on behalf of himself and similarly
situated persons on August 1, 2016. Mr. O'Neal claims that he and
similarly situated employees were not properly paid under the Fair
Labor Standards Act.

The parties stipulate that Mr. O'Neal can meet the lenient
standard required for conditional certification. In addition, the
parties believe that conditional certification and sending of
notice to potential opt-in plaintiffs will promote and facilitate
early resolution of the case by settlement.

ENCLARITY INC: Class Cert. Bid in "Hood" Denied Without Prejudice
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Denise Page Hood entered an order in the lawsuit styled
MATTHEW N. FULTON, the Plaintiff, v. ENCLARITY, INC., et al., the
Defendants, Case No 2:16-cv-13777-DPH-RSW (E.D. Mich.), denying
without prejudice the Plaintiff's motion to certify a class

The Plaintiff may refile its motion after Defendants have been
served and had the opportunity to respond to the Complaint and the
class allegations.

According to Judge Hood, the court should defer decision on
certification pending discovery if the existing record is
inadequate for resolving the relevant issues. In re Am. Medical
Sytems, et al., 75 F.3d 1069, 1086 (6th Cir. 1996). Other than the
Complaint and exhibits thereto, there is no record before the
Court. The Supreme Court requires district courts to conduct a
"rigorous analysis" into whether the prerequisites of Rule 23 are
met before certifying a class.

FAIRFIELD INDUSTRIES: Bid to Certify Seismic Workers' Class Filed
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff in the case, DARNELL SENEGAL, Individually and On Behalf
of All Others Similarly Situated, Plaintiff, v. FAIRFIELD
INDUSTRIES INCORPORATED, Defendant, No. 4:16-cv-02113 (S.D. Tex.),
filed a motion for conditional class certification and expedited
discovery.  Senegal seeks to certify a class defined as:

     "All current and former seismic crewmembers employed by
Fairfield and paid on a day-rate basis at any time during the last
three years."

Seismic crewmembers include observers (i.e., the linesman (or line
chiefs), junior observers, observers, shift lead observers, chief
observers, and party managers); the gun department (i.e., gun
mechanic helpers, gun mechanic trainees, gun mechanics, gun shift
leaders, and gun mechanic chiefs); the mechanics (i.e., compressor
mechanics and back deck mechanics); the navigators (i.e., the
navigators, shift lead navigators, and chief navigators); and
marine mammal observers.

Senegal alleges that the company violated the Fair Labor Standards
Act of 1938, 29 U.S.C. Sections 201-219, by, among other things,
failing to pay him and others similarly situated overtime for
hours worked in excess of 40 per workweek.

GRAY & GRAY: Court Certified Class & Subclass Bid in "Yarbrough"
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robert J. Jonker entered an order in in the lawsuit
styled MARY YARBROUGH, for themselves and class members, the
Plaintiffs, v. GRAY & GRAY, P.C., DEBORAH L. GRAY, and DLG &
ASSOCIATES, INC., the Defendants, Case No. 1:14-cv-00234-RJJ (W.D.
Mich.), granting Plaintiffs' renewed motion for class
certification of:

General Class:

   "all judgment debtors who were subject to a Michigan
   garnishment that: (1) was signed by Gray & Gray, P.C.; (2) was
   filed during the class period; and (3) had included in the
   amount of unsatisfied judgment then due (a) the costs of the
   garnishment, or (b) the costs of a prior garnishment before
   Gray & Gray, P.C. had received either (i) a disclosure for the
   prior garnishment indicating the garnishee owed money to, held
   property of, or employed the judgment debtor, or (ii) actual
   payment on the prior garnishment from the garnishee"; and

DLG Subclass:

   "all members of the General Class in which the garnishment was
   to collect a judgment payable to DLG & Associates, Inc".

The Court said, "Plaintiffs have met their burden of proving that
a class action is the superior method of adjudicating this
dispute. The alleged garnishment cost overcharges in this case are
relatively small for each potential class member. Further, most
judgment debtors are likely not aware of the technical violations
of the FDCPA. It is unlikely that many members of the class will
bring individual lawsuits. Therefore, class litigation is the
superior method of adjudicating Plaintiffs' claims".

GREEK PEAK: "Light" Suit to Recover Spread-of-Hours, Overtime Pay

HANNES TULVING JR: Court Denied Class Cert. Bid in "Barrett" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled Jerry Barrett, the Plaintiff v. Hannes
Tulving, Jr., the Defendant, Case No. 8:15-cv-01355-JLS-JCG (C.D.
Cal.), the Hon. Josephine L. Staton entered an order:

   1. denying Plaintiff's motion to certify a class; and

   2. granting Plaintiff's motion for an extension of the time to
      file a motion for default judgment up to 90 days.

Plaintiff's Motion for class certification is accompanied only by
the proposed class counsel's firm profile and a declaration from
the bankruptcy trustee -- submitted in the bankruptcy proceedings
-- that outlines the trustee's plans for distributing the assets
of The Tulving Company, Inc. and lists the "creditors/victims".

The Court said this is inadequate for purposes of class
certification.  Even if Defendant does not submit any evidence in
response, the Plaintiff must provide sufficient support in the
form of declarations or other evidence to establish each element
of a Rule 23(b)(3) class. See C.D. Cal. R. 7-6 ("Factual
contentions involved in any motion and opposition to motions shall
be presented, heard, and determined upon declarations and other
written evidence (including documents, photographs, deposition
excerpts, etc."). To provide just one example, Plaintiff does not
submit a declaration from the proposed class representative. Such
a declaration, at minimum, would be required to support a finding
of adequacy. Instead, the class certification motion just states
in a conclusory fashion:

   "Plaintiff will adequately serve as a class representative in
   this litigation. There are no conflicts of interest between
   Plaintiff and the members of the putative class or between
   class counsel and the Class."

The Plaintiff shall have 90 days to file a motion for default
judgment. Further, while the Court understands that Mr. Tulving's
attorney has indicated that he is authorized to accept service on
behalf of his client, the Court orders that any future motions in
this case be served upon Defendant personally.

A copy of the Oct. 27 Order is available at no charge at
http://d.classactionreporternewsletter.com/u?f=ouUmnOpc

The Tulving Company filed a voluntary petition for relief under
chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code (Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 14-
11492) on March 10, 2014.  On March 18, 2014, The Tulving Company
signed a stipulation with the United States Trustee consenting to
the appointment of a chapter 11 trustee. The Bankruptcy Court
approved that stipulation and on March 21, 2014, R. Todd Neilson
was appointed as the chapter 11 trustee for The Tulving Company.
On May 22, 2014, after good cause for granting the motion based on
facts and circumstances was considered by the Hon. Erithe Smith,
The Tulving Company was converted to a chapter 7 case.

--------------------------------------------------------------
The following case was transferred to the U.S. District Court for

HOLLY MOLLET individually, on behalf of all others similarly

which provides various safeguards to employees, retirees and their
beneficiaries, including, most importantly, that the plan be
properly funded to provide promised benefits in the event company
funds are insufficient to do so.

INFUSYSTEM HOLDINGS: "Lechner" Sues Over Share Price Drop
---------------------------------------------------------
John Lechner, Individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. InfuSystem Holdings, Inc., Eric K. Steen
and Jonathan P. Foster, Defendants, Case No. 2:16-cv-08295 (C.D.
Cal., November 8, 2016), seeks to recover compensable damages
caused by violations of federal securities laws.

InfuSystem is a healthcare company that provides infusion pumps
and related products and services for patients in the home,
oncology clinics, ambulatory surgery centers, and other sites of
care from five locations serving the United States and Canada.
InfuSystem is a Delaware corporation and headquartered in Madison
Heights, Michigan. InfuSystem maintains an office 10349 Heritage
Park Dr., Unit 2, Santa Fe Springs, CA 90670.

According to the complaint, Defendants failed to disclose that the
Company lacked effective internal control over financial
reporting, overstating the estimated accounts receivable
collections which in turn overstated revenues and pre-tax income
back in 2015. Plaintiff acquired InfuSystem securities at
artificially inflated prices and lost substantially upon the
revelation of the alleged corrective disclosures.

Eric K. Steen has served as the Company's President and Chief
Executive Officer while Jonathan P. Foster has served as the
Company's Chief Financial Officer.

JACKSON, MI: Renewed Class Cert. Bid in "Schwab" Denied
-------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled MONIKA SCHWAB, the Plaintiff, v. CITY OF
JACKSON, et al., the Defendants, Case No. 2:14-cv-11074-SJM-DRG
(E.D. Mich.), the Hon. Stephen J. Murphy, III entered an order
denying Plaintiff's renewed motion for class certification.

The Court denied Plaintiff's previous motion on the grounds that
counsel had not demonstrated that it would "fairly and adequately
protect the interests of the class" as required by Civil Rule 23.
The Plaintiff's renewed motion raises no additional arguments or
facts that persuade the Court to change its mind. Because the
reasoning of the previous order denying the motion for class
certification remains relevant, the Court will likewise deny the
renewed motion.

JACKSON, MI: Court Denied Renewed Class Cert. Bid in "Hill"
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned TERRENCE HILL, the Plaintiff, v. CITY OF
JACKSON, et al., the Defendants, Case No. 2:14-cv-11072-SJM-DRG
(E.D. Mich.), the Hon. Stephen J. Murphy, III entered an order
denying Plaintiff's renewed motion for class certification.

The case is a companion to Schwab v. City of Jackson, Case No. 14-
cv-11074. As with previous motions, the briefing, facts, and legal
issues in each case are essentially identical. The Court issued an
order in Schwab denying a substantively identical renewed motion
to certify class. The Court adopts the reasoning from that order,
and reached the same conclusions with regard to the pending motion
of the case.

LEE COUNTY, FL: Certification of Classes Sought in "Calderone"
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled KEVIN CALDERONE, an individual, GEORGE
SCHWING, an individual, MICHAEL ZALESKI, an individual, SELENA
LEE, an individual, and on behalf of all other similarly situated
individuals, the Plaintiff, v. MICHAEL SCOTT, as the duly elected
Sheriff of Lee County, Florida, the Defendant, Case No. 2:14-cv-
00519-PAM-CM (M.D. Fla.), the Plaintiffs asks the Court to certify
these classes:

   "all current and former uniformed deputies who, in the five
   (5) years preceding this action, were/are required to don and
   doff specialized, protective equipment prior to reporting for
   their assigned shift or once their shift has concluded";

   " all current and former deputies who, in the five (5) years
   preceding this action, who were/are issued Lee County
   Sheriff's Office vehicles to take home and performed law
   enforcement services while driving to/from their shifts; and

   "all current and former uniformed deputies who, in the five
   (5) years preceding this action, who have been/are assigned to
   the Lee County Sheriff's Office's "Traffic Unit" and were not
   compensated for all time worked prior to their arrival at
   their assigned enforcement location".

The case centers upon the Defendant's failure to pay proper wages
due to his deputies. As such, Named Plaintiffs in this case are
seeking to recover unpaid minimum wages pursuant to the
Florida Constitution, Article X, Section 24 (via the Florida
Minimum Wage Act or FMWA). The Defendant has held the position of
sheriff since 2004, having been reelected in 2008 and 2012. At the
time the action was filed, the Named Plaintiffs consisted of 3
deputies and one former deputy; all four are now former employees,
who allege that they performed "off-the-clock"
work for which they were not compensated.

LEE COUNTY, FL: Class Certification Sought in Race Bias Case
------------------------------------------------------------
GWYNETTA GITTENS, an individual, DR. JERALD THOMPSON, an
individual, STEPHANIE LAWRENCE, an individual, and PRESTON TOWNS,
and individual, and on behalf of all similarly situated
individuals, Plaintiffs, v. THE SCHOOL BOARD OF LEE COUNTY,
FLORIDA, a political subdivision of the State of Florida,
Defendant, Case No. 2:16-cv-412 (M.D. Fla.), alleges that the
Defendant employs a selection process for promotion into assistant
principal positions that discriminates against African-Americans
in violation of Title VII, 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1981 and the Florida
Civil Rights Act (FCRA).  The lawsuit alleges that the Defendant
has an unwritten policy, and followed practice, whereby African-
Americans are not hired for assistant principal positions due to
their race.

The lawsuit claims that as of April 2016, white employees made up
a staggering 83% of the assistant principal pool (AP Pool)
positions (142 persons), whereas African-Americans made up just 7%
(12 persons). This further supports the contention that the
Defendant has a pattern and practice of refusing to hire well-
qualified African-American employees to administrative positions,
often under the auspices of "lack of qualifications" or purely
concocted criticisms, all of which result is intended to
disenfranchise African-American employees and prevent their upward
mobility.  The employment decisions at issue are not made by local
managers or staff, but rather the AP Pool is a group of employees
established by the District itself.  As such, the Named Plaintiffs
seek to represent a class defined as follows:

     "Any and all black/African-American employees who applied for
an AP Pool position in the four years preceding this action but
who were denied such a position by the Defendant."

LEIKIN INGBER: Court Certified Class & Subclass Bid in "Walker"
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robert J. Jonker entered an order in the lawsuit
captioned ETHEL WALKER, for herself and class members, the
Plaintiff, v. LEIKIN, INGBER & WINTERS, P.C., GEORGE A. LEIKIN,
PAUL M. INGBER, SUSAN L. WINTERS and LVNV FUNDING LLC, the
Defendants, Case No. 1:14-cv-00018-RJJ (W.D. Mich.), granting
Plaintiffs' renewed motion for class certification of:

General Class:

   "all judgment debtors who were subject to a Michigan
   garnishment that: (1) was signed by Leikin, Ingber, & Winters,
   P.C.; (2) was filed during the class period; and (3) had
   included in the amount of unsatisfied judgment then due (a)
   the costs of the garnishment, or (b) the costs of a prior
   garnishment before Leikin, Ingber, & Winters, P.C. had
   received either (i) a disclosure for the prior garnishment
   indicating the garnishee owed money to, held property of, or
   employed the judgment debtor, or (ii) actual payment on the
   prior garnishment from the garnishee"; and

LVNV Subclass:

   "all members of the General Class in which the garnishment was
   to collect a judgment payable to LVNV Funding, LLC".

The Court said, "Plaintiffs have met their burden of proving that
a class action is the superior method of adjudicating this
dispute. The alleged garnishment cost overcharges in this case are
relatively small for each potential class member. Further, most
judgment debtors are likely not aware of the technical
violations of the FDCPA. It is unlikely that many members of the
class will bring individual lawsuits. Therefore, class litigation
is the superior method of adjudicating Plaintiffs' claims".

LIFESTATION INC: Class Certification in "Dolemba" Suit Continued
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Matthew F. Kennelly entered an order in the lawsuit
styled Scott Dolemba, the Plaintiff, v. Lifestation, Inc., et al.,
the Defendant, Case No. 1:16-cv-10348 (N.D. Ill.), continuing
Plaintiff's amended motion to certify a class to the initial
status hearing in the case, which will be set by later order.

According to the docket entry made by the Clerk on November 8,
2016, the Plaintiff's original motion to certify class has been
superseded by an amended motion and is therefore terminated.

A copy of the Order is available at no charge at
http://d.classactionreporternewsletter.com/u?f=s2lJs3j5

                 Dolemba's Class Certification Bid

The Plaintiff asks the Court to certify these classes:

Count I, alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection
Act (TCPA):

   "(a) all persons (b) who, on or after a date four years prior
   to the filing of this action (28 U.S.C. Sec.1658), and on or
   before a date 20 days following the filing of this action, (c)
   received calls from defendants on their cell phones, (d)
   placed using an automated dialer or a prerecorded or
   artificial voice"; and

Count II, alleging violation of the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act
(ICFA):

   "(a) all persons with telephone numbers in Illinois area codes
   (b) who, on or after a date three years prior to the filing of
   this action (815 ILCS 505/10a), and on or before a date 20
   days following the filing of this action, (c) received calls
   from defendants on their cell phones, (d) placed using an
   automated dialer or a prerecorded or artificial voice".

The Plaintiff further asks the Court that Edelman, Combs,
Latturner & Goodwin, LLC be appointed counsel for the class.

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.

MAINE FISH MARKET: Accord in Dineen-Tedone FLSA Suit Has Final OK
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. William I. Garfinkel granted final approval to the
Settlement Agreement and General Release of the case captioned
KRISTEN DINEEN and JOHN TEDONE, on behalf of themselves and all
others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, against MAINE FISH MARKET
RESTAURANT, INC. d/b/a MAINE FISH MARKET and NICHOLAS VAMVILIS,
Defendants, Civ. Action No. 15 Civ. 1554 (WIG)(D. Conn.), and
dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice.

The Court finds that the Settlement Agreement was the result of
extensive, arms' length negotiations by counsel well-versed in the
prosecution of wage and hour class and collective actions. The
assistance of the Court in mediating a settlement reinforces that
the Settlement Agreement is non-collusive.

For settlement purposes only, the Court certifies the class under
Fed. R. Civ. P. 23(e):

     "All persons employed as a server, bartender and / or full-
time kitchen worker by Maine Fish Market at any time between
October 26, 2012 and June 30, 2016."

For settlement purposes only, the Court finds that Plaintiffs meet
all of the requirements for class certification under Federal Rule
of Civil Procedure 23(a) and(b)(3).

Class Counsel's request for attorneys' fees and reimbursement of
litigation costs and expenses is approved.  The service award for
the Named Plaintiffs Kristen Dineen and John Tedone is approved to
reimburse them for their services in initiating and maintaining
this litigation.

The Court awards the claims administrator its reasonable costs in
administering the settlement, which amount to $12,721.80, to be
paid out of the Settlement Fund.

MEDREMIT INC: Boileve's Placeholder Class Cert. Motion Tossed
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, Carlos M. Boileve, DC, MCS-P Plaintiff, v. MedRemit,
Inc., et al. Defendant, Case No. 1:16-cv-07662 (N.D. Ill.), the
Hon. Virginia M. Kendall denied the Plaintiff's placeholder motion
for class certification, saying it was prematurely filed.

The Plaintiff filed the class action certification motion pursuant
to Damasco v. Clearwire Corp., 662 F.3d 891 (7th Cir. 2011) to
protect the putative class from attempts by the Defendant to buy
off the named plaintiff.

According to Judge Kendall, in light of Chapman v. First Index
Inc., 796 F. 3d 783 (7th Cir. 2015) and Campbell-Ewald Co. v.
Gomez, 136 S. Ct. 663 (2016), as revised (Feb. 9, 2016),
Plaintiff's placeholder class certification motion is dismissed as
moot.  Chapman overruled Damasco to the extent that it held that
defendant's offer of full compensation moots a litigation or
otherwise ends a case or controversy.

Judge Kendall said class discovery may continue and Plaintiff must
file a substantive motion for class certification by Jan. 23,
2017.

MEYERKORD & MEYERKORD: Pavone Seeks Certification of Two Classes
----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled ANTONIO PAVONE, on behalf of himself, and
all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. MEYERKORD &
MEYERKORD, LLC, a Missouri Limited Liability Company, LEXISNEXIS
RISK SOLUTIONS, INC., a Corporation; and IYETEK, LLC, a Limited
Liability Company, the Defendants, Case No. 1:15-cv-01539 (N.D.
Ill.), the Plaintiff asks the Court to certify classes:

Meyerkord class:

   "all natural persons with an address in the state of Illinois
   who were the subjects of an Illinois Traffic Crash Report, to
   whom, within four years prior to the filing of this action and
   extending through the resolution of this action, Defendant
   Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC sent correspondence marked
   "ADVERTISING MATERIAL" substantially similar in form to the
   correspondence it sent to Plaintiff Antonio Pavone, but the
   class excludes non-drivers identified on the Illinois Traffic
   Crash Reports, any officers of Defendants, as well as the
   lawyers in this case and the judge assigned to this case"; and

Lexis class:

   "all persons residing within the United States and its
   Territories about whom, within four years prior to the filing
   of this action and extending through the resolution of this
   action, Defendant Lexis sold a crash report to a law firm
   within 24 hours of the time the report became available for
   purchase on Defendant's e-commerce web-portal, but excluded
   from the class are the subjects of those reports obtained by
   any law firm using the name and address of the subject or the
   subject's accident report number, and also excluded from the
   class are any officers of Defendants, as well as the lawyers
   in this case and the judge assigned to this case".

The Plaintiff claims that Meyerkord unlawfully obtained and used
DPPA-protected personal information from motor vehicle records in
order to solicit car accident victims and to advertise its
personal injury legal services to them. Lexis knowingly disclosed
such DPPA-protected personal information from motor vehicle
records to Meyerkord and other law firms who used that information
for advertising purposes. Both obtaining and disclosing of DPPA-
protected personal information violates the DPPA.

NBTY INC: Sweat Makes Third Attempt at Class Certification
----------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled JENNIFER SWEAT, on behalf of herself and all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. NBTY, INC., the
Defendant, Case No. 3:16-cv-00940-MMH-PDB (M.D. Fla.), the
Plaintiff filed a third motion for class certification on Nov. 16.

The filing case after the Court on Nov. 2 entered an Order
striking Plaintiff's "Second Motion and Memorandum for Class
Certification and for Leave to Supplement After Discovery."  The
Hon. Marcia Morales Howard entered an order:

   1. stricking Plaintiff's second motion and memorandum for
      class certification and for leave to supplement after
      discovery; and

   2. directing Plaintiff Jennifer Sweat to file a motion that
      complies with the Local Rules of this Court on or before
      November 16, 2016.

The Court said, "Plaintiff's First Motion was due to be stricken
for failure to comply with the page requirements of the Local
Rules of this Court. . . .  Surprisingly, despite the Court's
specific instruction that "in the event [Plaintiff] elects to re-
file this Motion she should ensure that it complies with the
Court's page limits, as well as any other pertinent Local Rules,"
id., the instant Motion is still in excess of the page limit
requirements."

                    2nd Class Certification Bid

The Plaintiff filed a Second Motion and Memorandum for class
certification on Oct. 31 after meeting and conferring with
Defendant in accordance with the Local Rules.  Defendant opposed
this motion.

Plaintiff seeks to certify a class of:

   "all persons residing in states which have enacted the Uniform
   Deceptive Trade Practices Act, The Florida Deceptive and
   Unfair Trade Practices Act, or any act similar in substance,
   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 marketed with an unqualified
   representation of domestic sourcing".

According to the complaint, the Defendant has produced a
product called Ester-C, marketed this product as a form of vitamin
C that improves immune health, and labeled that product as "Made
in the USA". Yet the very vitamin C that makes the product what it
is was sourced from a foreign country. The Vitamin C in Ester C is
in the form of Calcium Ascorbate, an ingredient which is simply
not produced in the United States. Therefore, under the FTC
guidelines for labeling products as made in the USA, these
products are not "all or virtually all" made in
the United States and they do not meet the legal standard to bear
the labels they carry.

NELSON WATSON: Class Certification Sought in "Maldonado" Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled ALFREDO MALDONADO, on behalf of himself and
those similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. NELSON, WATSON &
ASSOCIATES, LLC; CBE GROUP; and JOHN DOES 1-10, the Defendants,
Case No. 2:15-cv-05940-MAH (D.N.J.), the Plaintiff move the Court

PEOPLES BANK: Class Cert. Bid in "Langston" Suit Partly Granted
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled JOHN LANGSTON, the Plaintiff, v. PEOPLES
BANK & TRUST CO., the Defendant, Case No. 5:16-cv-00745-HE (W.D.
Okla), the Hon. Joe Heaton entered an order granting in part and
denying in part Plaintiff's motion for conditional class
certification.

Plaintiff moved for conditional class certification under Sec.
216(b), seeking to represent a proposed class defined as:

     "All persons who worked as Loan Officers (or persons with
similar job duties) for Defendant within three years prior to the
filing of this Complaint."

The motion is granted as to a class composed of loan officers at
the Owings Mills facility, but otherwise denied.

The Court found deficiencies in plaintiff's showing as to scope of
the class are potentially.  Plaintiff is granted leave to amend.
He is directed to file, within 21 days, either (1) a second,
supplemental motion, properly supported, seeking a broader class,
or (2) a statement of election to proceed with the class as
limited by this order.  If he elects the latter course, the
parties are directed to confer in an effort to reach agreement on
a form of notice, consent forms, and necessary deadlines, and to
submit, within 14 days from the filing of the election, a joint
statement reflecting their agreement or, if agreement cannot be
reached, their respective positions as to same.

Plaintiff alleges that he worked as a loan officer in defendant's
Owings Mills office, that he regularly worked in excess of forty
hours per week, but he was not permitted to record his hours and
was not paid for his overtime work. He alleges that he and other
similarly situated loan officers were treated as "exempt"
employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act and were paid on a
pure commission basis.

POMONA UNIFIED: Court Certified Class in Students' Suit
-------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled J.V., et al., the Plaintiffs, v. Pomona
Unified School District, et al., the Defendants, Case No. 2:15-cv-
07895-JAK-MRW (C.D. Cal.), the Hon. John A. Kronstadt certified a
class of:

   "[a]ll students with developmental disabilities as defined in
   California Welfare & Institutions Code section 4512, attending
   school in Pomona Unified School District since August 2013,
   who are currently being or who have been denied their right to
   full and equal access to, and the use and enjoyment of, the
   facilities, programs, services, and activities of the Pomona
   Unified School District".

Judge Kronstadt also held that Plaintiffs have standing to seek
injunctive relief.

Specifically, Plaintiffs seek the following affirmative injunctive
relief:

     -- Mandatory training of all staff who work with students
with developmental disabilities.

     -- Development and effective implementation of a procedure
whereby student injuries are reported and documented, and parents
are notified regarding their rights when their child is injured at
school, including a grievance procedure.

     -- Development and effective implementation of measures to
ensure compliance with these policies by all District employees,
including appropriate oversight of the special education program.
This would include designating an ADA administrator with knowledge
of the pertinent laws and policies and adequate training in
restraint procedure and effective non-violent alternatives by an
independent expert.

Plaintiffs J.V. and B.K. no longer attend District schools. Each
claims to have left due to the dissatisfaction of his respective
guardian with the treatment that is the basis for this litigation.
J.V. receives home-based educational services from a non-PUSD
provider, and B.K. attends a nonpublic school. Therefore,
Defendants argue in their supplemental briefing, the named
plaintiffs do not have standing, as any injunctive relief would
not apply to them.

ROOSEN VARCHETTI: Court Granted Class & Subclass Certification
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robert J. Jonker entered an order in the lawsuit
captioned PETER ANDA, LATRICIA BELL, JONATHAN ELSENBROEK,
JACQUELYN JOHNSON, LESLIE PENEGOR and DONALD WALSTROM, for
themselves and class members, the Plaintiffs, v. ROOSEN VARCHETTI
& OLIVIER, PLLC, RICHARD G. ROOSEN, PAUL E. VARCHETTI, LYNN M.
OLIVIER, WEB EQUITY HOLDINGS, LLC, CAVALRY SPV I, LLC and MAIN
STREET ACQUISITION CORP., the Defendants, Case No. 1:14-cv-00295-
RJJ (W.D. Mich.), granting Plaintiffs' renewed motion for
certification of one class and three subclasses:

General Class:

   "all judgment debtors who were subject to a Michigan
   garnishment that: (1) was signed by Roosen, Varchetti &
   Olivier, PLLC; (2) was filed during the class period; and (3)
   had included in the amount of unsatisfied judgment then due
   (a) the costs of the garnishment, or (b) the costs of a prior
   garnishment before Roosen, Varchetti & Olivier, PLLC had
   received either (i) a disclosure for the prior garnishment
   indicating the garnishee owed money to, held property of, or
   employed the judgment debtor, or (ii) actual payment on the
   prior garnishment from the garnishee;

Web Equity Holdings, LLC Subclass:

   "all members of the General Class in which the garnishment was
   to collect a judgment payable to Web Equity Holdings, LLC;

Cavalry SPV I, LLC Subclass:

   "all members of the General Class in which the garnishment was
   to collect a judgment payable to Cavalry SPV I, LLC; and

Main Street Acquisition Corp. Subclass:

   "all members of the General Class in which the garnishment was
   to collect a judgment payable to Main Street Acquisition
   Corp."

The Court said, "Plaintiffs have met their burden of proving that
a class action is the superior method of adjudicating this
dispute. The alleged garnishment cost overcharges in this case are
relatively small for each potential class member. Further, most
judgment debtors are likely not aware of the technical violations
of the FDCPA. It is unlikely that many members of the class will
bring individual lawsuits. Therefore, class litigation is the
superior method of adjudicating Plaintiffs' claims."

In the lawsuit styled JONATHAN BRISLANE, etc., the Plaintiff, v.
BILL BROWN, et al., the Defendants, Case No. 2:16-cv-06002-JFW-E

   "all prisoners in the Santa Barbara County Jail who from
   December 24, 2011 to the date of class certification were not
   provided bunks and who were forced to sleep on the floors".

According to the complaint, the class potentially contains over

members is impracticable, and also, because only defendants know
the names of all of the members of class, and defendants are the
only persons who have information sufficient to identify all the
members of class, it is impracticable to join all the members of
the class in this action.

TIMOTHY BAXTER: Court Granted Class Certification in "Pryor"
------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robert J. Jonker entered an order in the lawsuit entitled
DANIEL PRYOR and DAVID NOTA, for themselves and class members,
Plaintiffs, v. LAW OFFICES OF TIMOTHY E. BAXTER & ASSOCIATES,
P.C.; MIDLAND FUNDING, LLC; MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT, INC.; and
ENCORE CAPITAL GROUP, INC.,
Defendants, Case No. 1:13-cv-01330-RJJ (W.D. Mich.), granting
Plaintiffs' renewed motion for certification of one class and
subclass:

General Class:

   "all judgment debtors who were subject to a Michigan
   garnishment that: (1) was signed by Law Offices of Timothy E.
   Baxter & Associates, P.C.; (2) was filed during the class
   period; and (3) had included in the amount of unsatisfied
   judgment then due (a) the costs of the garnishment, or (b) the
   costs of a prior garnishment before Law Offices of Timothy E.
   Baxter & Associates, P.C. had received either (i) a disclosure
   for the prior garnishment indicating the garnishee owed money
   to, held property of, or employed the judgment debtor, or (ii)
   actual payment on the prior garnishment from the garnishee;"

   and

Midland Subclass:

   "all members of the General Class in which the garnishment was
    to collect a judgment payable to Midland Funding LLC".

The Court said, "Plaintiffs have met their burden of proving that
a class action is the superior method of adjudicating this
dispute. The alleged garnishment cost overcharges in this case are
relatively small for each potential class member. Further, most
judgment debtors are likely not aware of the technical violations
of the FDCPA. It is unlikely that many members of the class will
bring individual lawsuits. Therefore, class litigation is the
superior method of adjudicating Plaintiffs' claims."

UBER TECHNOLOGIES: Drivers Class Cert. Sought in "Yucesoy" Suit

certify a class of:

   "all UberBlack, UberX, and UberSUV drivers who have driven for
   Uber in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts at any time".

The motion is brought pursuant to Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of
Civil Procedure on the ground that Defendant has misclassified its
drivers as independent contractors rather than employees and has
failed to reimburse drivers for their necessary operating expenses
pursuant to Mass. G. L. ch. 149, section 148 as well as failing to
remit the total proceeds of gratuities customers reasonably
believe and intend to leave for drivers, in violation of Mass. G.
L. ch. 149, section 152A and the common law.

UNITED RESOURCE: Final Approval of "Kopchak" Settlement Sought
--------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff in the case, KIMBERLY KOPCHAK, on behalf of herself &
all others similarly situated, Plaintiff, vs. UNITED RESOURCE
SYSTEMS, et al., Defendants, CIVIL ACTION NO. 5:13-cv-05884-MSG
(E.D. Pa.), was slated to appear before the Court on November 17,
2016, to seek an Order certifying her case to proceed as a class
action and granting final approval of the Parties' class
settlement agreement.

Plaintiff seeks to certify a class of:

     "All consumers in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to whom
URS mailed an initial written communication in connection with its
attempt to collect a debt, which failed to inform consumers they
must dispute their debts in writing to be considered valid, during
the period beginning October 4, 2012, and ending May 8, 2015."

On October 4, 2013, Plaintiff filed this class action lawsuit,
which alleged URS violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act,
15 U.S.C. Sec. 1692, et seq. by mailing consumers initial
collection letters, which failed to inform consumers they must
dispute their debts in writing to be considered valid.  The
Complaint alleges that URS's omission of the "in writing" verbiage
violated 15 U.S.C. Sec. 1692g(a)(4).

On August 4, 2016, the Court entered an Order granting Preliminary
Approval to the Parties' Class Settlement Agreement.  The
Preliminary Order, and its accompanying Opinion specifically found
that the proposed terms of the settlement satisfied all the
elements of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(a) and 23(b)(3),
and preliminarily certified a defined class.  The Order further
established a procedural framework for the final approval of the
Settlement, and directed the Parties to implement the Court's
Notice Plan for providing notice to members of the above defined
Class, set deadlines and procedures for Class Members to request
exclusion from or to object to the Settlement, and set a date and
time for the final fairness hearing to approve the Settlement.

Final Approval of Class Settlement Agreement and Release

UNITED STATES: D.C. Judge Trims Love Claims v. Vilsack, USDA
------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Reggie B. Walton narrowed the claims alleged in the
suit, ROSEMARY LOVE, et al., Plaintiffs, v. THOMAS VILSACK,
Secretary, United States Department of Agriculture, Defendant,
Civil Action No. 00-2502 (RBW)(D.C.).  Specifically, the Court
grants the plaintiffs' motion to dismiss Counts I and II of their
fourth amended Complaint, but declines to reinstate Counts III
through VI of the fourth amended Complaint because each count
fails to state a plausible claim for relief.

The plaintiffs are female farmers who allege that the United
States Department of Agriculture discriminated against them on the
basis of their gender by denying them "equal and fair access to
farm loans and loan servicing, and of consideration of their
administrative complaints."  The plaintiffs also claim that the
"USDA offered and is implementing voluntary administrative claims
programs to adjudicate the claims of members of other minority
groups who suffered similar discrimination," but "has arbitrarily
refused to offer equivalent terms to women, further depriving them
of equal protection and due process."

The Court declines to rule at this time on the plaintiffs' motion
for attorneys' fees in anticipation that this Order may prompt one
or more parties to amend their arguments regarding that motion.

Any party wishing to supplement their submissions regarding the
Plaintiffs' Motion for an Award of Fees, Costs, and Expenses, must
file a notice of their intent to do so on or before November 30,
2016.

Plaintiffs' Supplemental Motion to Certify Class is denied as
moot.

WELTMAN WEINBERG: Court Certified Class & Subclass in "Verburg"
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robert J. Jonker entered an order in the lawsuit styled
STEVEN J. VERBURG and NANCY A. WILLIAMS, for themselves and class
members, the Plaintiffs, v. WELTMAN, WEINBERG & REIS CO., L.P.A.;
MIDLAND FUNDING LLC; MIDLAND CREDIT MANAGEMENT, INC.; ENCORE
CAPITAL GROUP, INC.; AND LVNV FUNDING, LLC, the Defendants, Case
No. 1:13-cv-01328-RJJ (W.D. Mich.), granting Plaintiffs' renewed
motion for class certification of:

General Class:

   "all judgment debtors who were subject to a Michigan
   garnishment that: (1) was signed by Weltman, Weinberg & Reis
   Co., L.P.A.; (2) was filed during the class period; and (3)
   had included in the amount of unsatisfied judgment then due
   (a) the costs of the garnishment, or (b) the costs of a prior
   garnishment before Weltman, Weinberg & Reis Co., L.P.A. had
   received either (i) a disclosure for the prior garnishment
   indicating the garnishee owed money to, held property of, or
   employed the judgment debtor, or (ii) actual payment on the
   prior garnishment from the garnishee";

Midland Subclass:

   all members of the General Class in which the garnishment was
   to collect a judgment payable to Midland Funding LLC; and

LVNV Subclass: comprised of

   "all members of the General Class in which the garnishment was
   to collect a judgment payable to LVNV Funding, LLC".

The Court said, "Plaintiffs have met their burden of proving that
a class action is the superior method of adjudicating this
dispute. The alleged garnishment cost overcharges in this case are
relatively small for each potential class member. Further, most
judgment debtors are likely not aware of the technical violations
of the FDCPA. It is unlikely that many members of the class will
bring individual lawsuits. Therefore, class litigation is the
superior method of adjudicating Plaintiffs' claims".
