ABBOTT LABORATORIES: 3 Shareholder Derivative Class Actions Filed
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Abbott Laboratories said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that three shareholder
derivative class action lawsuits have been filed related to the
acquisition agreement with St. Jude Medical.

In its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, Abbott
reported that two purported shareholder derivative class action
lawsuits had been filed against St. Jude Medical, its board of
directors, and Abbott and two of its subsidiaries in the Minnesota
District Court, Second Judicial District (Ramsey County), alleging
that the St. Jude Medical board of directors had breached its
fiduciary duties by entering into an acquisition agreement with
Abbott, and that Abbott had aided and abetted those breaches.

In August 2016, a third purported shareholder derivative class
lawsuit was filed, and all three lawsuits are being consolidated.
The plaintiffs seek injunctive relief, as well as actual and
punitive damages.

Abbott denies all substantive allegations in these cases.

AT&T INC: Dec. 12 Hearing on DIRECTV's Arbitration Bid
------------------------------------------------------
AT&T Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016, for the quarterly
period ended September 30, 2016, that a hearing is currently
scheduled for December 12, 2016, on DIRECTV's motion to compel
arbitration and the NFL defendants' motion to dismiss litigation
challenging DIRECTV's NFL Sunday Ticket.

More than two dozen putative class actions were filed in the U.S.
District Courts for the Central District of California and the
Southern District of New York against DIRECTV and the National
Football League (NFL). These cases were brought by residential and
commercial DIRECTV subscribers that have purchased NFL Sunday
Ticket. The plaintiffs allege that (i) the 32 NFL teams have
unlawfully agreed not to compete with each other in the market for
nationally televised NFL football games and instead have "pooled"
their broadcasts and assigned to the NFL the exclusive right to
market them; and (ii) the NFL and DIRECTV have entered into an
unlawful exclusive distribution agreement that allows DIRECTV to
charge "supra-competitive" prices for the NFL Sunday Ticket
package. The complaints seek unspecified treble damages and
attorneys' fees along with injunctive relief.

The first complaint, Abrahamian v. National Football League, Inc.,
et al., was served in June 2015. In December 2015, the Judicial
Panel on Multidistrict Litigation transferred the cases outside
the Central District of California to that court for consolidation
and management of pre-trial proceedings.

On June 24, 2016, the plaintiffs filed a consolidated amended
complaint.

"We vigorously dispute the allegations the complaints have
asserted," the Company said.

On August 8, 2016, DIRECTV filed a motion to compel arbitration
and the NFL defendants filed a motion to dismiss the complaint. A
hearing on both motions is currently scheduled for December 12,
2016.

CENTURY FAST FOODS: Denial of Bid to Compel Arbitration Affirmed
----------------------------------------------------------------
Presiding Judge Tricia A. Bigelow of the California Court of
Appeals affirmed a trial court's ruling that denied a motion to
compel arbitration in the case captioned, JESUS MENDOZA, Plaintiff
and Respondent, v. CENTURY FAST FOODS, INC., Defendant and
Appellant, Case No. B267158 (Cal. App.).

On April 10, 2012, Century hired Jesus Mendoza. As part of the
hiring process, Century directed Mendoza to fill out and sign a
"number of employment documents," including a W-4 income tax
withholding form, a grooming and uniform policy, and a "Team
Member Code of Conduct." In addition, both Mendoza and a Century
regional general manager signed another document entitled "At-Will
Employment" which set forth the company's "Employment At-Will
Policy" for his job with Century. The At-Will Contract does not
contain an arbitration provision, nor does it include any language
explicitly superseding or incorporating the arbitration provision
in the Taco Bell application form.

Mendoza filed a class action complaint against his former
employer, defendant and appellant Century Fast Foods, Inc.
(Century). The case alleged that Century violated various wage and
work condition requirements prescribed by the Labor Code, and
included claims for relief authorized under the Private Attorney
General Act (PAGA).

In July 2015, Century filed a motion to compel Mendoza to
arbitrate his claims individually and not in any representative
capacity on behalf of any other Century employees. Century's
motion was based on the arbitration provision in the Taco Bell
application form that Mendoza had signed when he applied for a job
at Century's restaurant.

Century argued for enforcement of the arbitration against Mendoza,
saying the trial court had "already enforced" the arbitration
provision against the plaintiff in the case, Ruiz v. Century Fast
Foods, Inc.

In August 2015, Mendoza filed an opposition to Century's motion to
arbitrate.  Mendoza argued that the arbitration provision in the
Taco Bell application form was not enforceable because Century had
presented no evidence that he had assented to arbitrate disputes
between him and Century. Mendoza argued that Century was not an
identified party in the arbitration provision in the Taco Bell
application form that he had signed because Century's name was not
on it.

The trial court denied the motion holding that Defendants have not
met their burden of proof to demonstrate Plaintiff agreed to
arbitration.

On appeal, Century contends the trial court's decision to deny the
company's motion to compel Mendoza to arbitrate his workplace
claims under the arbitration provision in the Taco Bell
application form must be reversed because the court "improperly
reconsidered" its prior ruling in the Ruiz case.

In her Opinion and dated November 9, 2016 available at
https://is.gd/IYnml9 from Leagle.com, Judge Bigelow held that the
Defendant's argument fails for the simple reason that Century's
arguments based on cases applying section 1008 of the Code of
Civil Procedure do not support the proposition that a ruling by a
trial judge in one case, based on certain claims and issues and
certain showings, necessarily binds on the same judge in a second
case to make the same ruling, regardless of the situation that
different parties are involved and different issues are raised and
different showings are made in the second case.

CHC GROUP: Securities Class Suit Dismissed
------------------------------------------
District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan of the United States District Court
for the Southern District of New York dismissed a securities class
action as to all defendants other than CHC Group Ltd. in the case
captioned, ERROL RUDMAN, et al., Plaintiffs, v. CHC GROUP LTD., et
al., Defendants, Case No. 15-CV-3773 (LAK) and consolidated case
(S.D.N.Y.).

Plaintiffs brought the putative securities class action against
CHC Group Ltd. (CHC), several of its officers and directors, and
the underwriters of CHC's January 16, 2014 initial public offering
(IPO). They allege that the IPO registration statement omitted
certain material facts, in violation of Sections 11, 12(a)(2), and
15 of the Securities Act of 1933.

Plaintiffs filed the first complaint in these consolidated actions
in state court on April 17, 2015, alleging that CHC's failure to
disclose the Petrobras fee dispute in its Registration Statement
violated Sections 11, 12(a)(2), and 15 of the Securities Act.
Specifically, plaintiffs contend that the omission rendered
statements in the Registration Statement misleading and
specifically contravened disclosure requirements found in Items
101, 303, and 503 of SEC Regulation S-K, Item 11A of SEC Form S-1,
and SEC Regulation C.

In the motion, defendants argue that plaintiffs' claims are time-
barred by the Securities Act's statute of limitations, that the
alleged omissions are immaterial, and that, in any event, CHC
adequately disclosed the impact of the EC225 suspension in the
Registration Statement.

CHC's fleet of heavy helicopters included 31 Eurocopter EC225s.
"A series of incidents and malfunctions affecting EC225s" led to
an "industry-wide suspension" of EC225 flights in October 2012,
followed by a gradual phase-in of service during the second half
of 2013.  EC225 service resumed in the final market, Brazil, in
December 2013.  In response to the EC225 suspension, Petro leo
Brasileiro S.A., one of CHC's largest customers, "formally
notified all of its EC225 providers" that it would cease making
payments under its EC225 contracts, including all standing
charges, while the aircraft were inoperable.  Petrobras'
nonpayment "last[ed] through the EC225 return to service" and
resulted in a dispute between it and CHC over the fees owed with
respect to the suspension period.

In the Memorandum Opinion dated November 9, 2016 available at
https://is.gd/vc9JI0 from Leagle.com, Judge Kaplan held that
defendants' joint motion to dismiss the consolidated amended
complaint is granted to the extent that the action is dismissed as
against all defendants except CHC and denied as to CHC only on the
ground that the continuation of the action as against it is
precluded by 11 U.S.C. Section 362(a).

CHIPOTLE MEXICAN: Lies About Foods' Nutrition Value, Desmond Says

GRILL, INC., a Delaware corporation; and DOES 1-100, Inclusive,
Case No. BC640700 (Cal. Super. Ct. Los Angeles Cty., November 16,

boards or in advertising, in violation of the California Health
and Safety Code.

Chipotle is a Delaware corporation with its principal place of

CIGNA CORP: Parties in Amara Case Working on Settlement
-------------------------------------------------------
Cigna Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the parties in the
Amara cash balance pension plan litigation continue to work
towards obtaining agreement around differences in interpretation
related to the calculation of additional pension benefits due to
class members.

In December, 2001, Janice Amara filed a class action lawsuit in
the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut against
Cigna Corporation and the Cigna Pension Plan (the "Plan") on
behalf of herself and other similarly situated Plan participants
affected by the 1998 conversion to a cash balance formula.  The
plaintiffs allege various violations of the Employee Retirement
Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA"), including that the Plan's
cash balance formula discriminates against older employees; that
the conversion resulted in a wear-away period (when the pre-
conversion accrued benefit exceeded the post-conversion benefit);
and that the Plan communications contained inaccurate or
inadequate disclosures about these conditions.

In 2008, the District Court (1) affirmed the Company's right to
convert to a cash balance plan prospectively beginning in 1998;
(2) found for plaintiffs on the disclosure claim only; and (3)
required the Company to pay pre-1998 benefits under the pre-
conversion traditional annuity formula and post-1997 benefits
under the post-conversion cash balance formula.  The Second
Circuit upheld this decision.  From 2008 through the present, this
case has undergone a series of court proceedings that resulted in
the original District Court order being largely upheld.  In 2015,
the Company submitted to the District Court its proposed method
for calculating the additional pension benefits due to class
members and plaintiffs responded in August 2015.

In January 2016, the District Court ordered the method of
calculating the additional pension benefits due to class members.
The court order left several aspects of the calculation of
additional plan benefits open to interpretation.  The parties
continue to work towards obtaining agreement around differences in
interpretation.  The timing of the resolution of these differences
remains uncertain.  Once resolved, the Plan will be amended to
comply with the agreed-upon interpretation of the District Court's
order and the benefits will begin to be paid.

The Company's reserve for this litigation remains reasonable at
September 30, 2016 based on a calculation consistent with the
Company's interpretation of the court order.

health services organization.


CIGNA CORP: Continues to Defend Against "Franco" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------
Cigna Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the the Company
will continue to vigorously defend its position in the case,
Franco v. Connecticut General Life Insurance Company, et al.

In April 2004, the Company was sued in a number of putative
nationwide class actions alleging that the Company improperly
underpaid claims for out-of-network providers through the use of
data provided by Ingenix, Inc., a subsidiary of one of the
Company's competitors.  These actions were consolidated into
Franco v. Connecticut General Life Insurance Company, et al.,
pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.
The consolidated amended complaint, filed in 2009 on behalf of
subscribers, health care providers and various medical
associations, asserted claims related to benefits and disclosure
under ERISA, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations
("RICO") Act, the Sherman Antitrust Act and New Jersey state law
and seeks recovery for alleged underpayments from 1998 through the
present.  Other major health insurers have been the subject of, or
have settled, similar litigation.

In September 2011, the District Court (1) dismissed all claims by
the health care provider and medical association plaintiffs for
lack of standing; and (2) dismissed the antitrust claims, the New
Jersey state law claims and the ERISA disclosure claim.  In
January 2013 and again in April 2014, the District Court denied
separate motions by the plaintiffs to certify a nationwide class
of subscriber plaintiffs.  The Third Circuit denied plaintiff's
request for an immediate appeal of the January 2013 ruling.  As a
result, the case is proceeding on behalf of the named plaintiffs
only.  In June 2014, the District Court granted the Company's
motion for summary judgment to terminate all claims, and denied
the plaintiffs' partial motion for summary judgment.  In July
2014, the plaintiffs appealed all of the District Court's
decisions in favor of the Company, including the class
certification decision, to the Third Circuit.

On May 2, 2016, the Third Circuit affirmed the District Court's
decisions denying class certification for the claims asserted by
members, the granting of summary judgment on the individual
plaintiffs' claims, as well as the dismissal of the antitrust
claims.  However, the Third Circuit also reversed the earlier
dismissal of the providers' ERISA claims.

The Company will continue to vigorously defend its position.

Case No. 3:16-cv-02808-L-NLS (S.D. Cal., Nov. 15, 2016), alleges
that the Defendants' advertising campaign wrongfully utilized the

CVS PHARMACY: "Elmore" Suit Sent to Arbitration
-----------------------------------------------
In the case captioned, AARON ELMORE, Plaintiff, v. CVS PHARMACY,
INC.; GARFIELD BEACH CVS, LLC; CVS HEALTH CORP.; and DOES 1-20,
inclusive, Defendants, Case No. 2:16-CV-05603-ODW(ASx) (C.D.
Cal.), District Judge Otis D. Wright, II of the United States
District Court for the Central District of California granted the
request of defendants CVS Pharmacy Inc., Garfield Beach CVS, LLC,
and CVS Health Corp. to compel arbitration and dismiss or, in the
alternative, stay proceedings pending the outcome of the
arbitration.

Garfield Beach CVS operates a number of retail stores and
pharmacies throughout the State of California. In June 2013,
Garfield Beach CVS hired Elmore. In October 2014, CVS Health
instituted a company-wide Arbitration of Workplace Legal Disputes
Policy (Arbitration Policy) that applied to all of its
subsidiaries, affiliates, and their employees, including Garfield
Beach CVS and Plainitff Aaron Elmore. Elmore was given a copy of
the Arbitration Policy with the CVS Health Colleague Guide to
Arbitration (Arbitration Guide).

Elmore filed his complaint in state court on June 20, 2016,
asserting ten causes of action:

     (1) failure to pay meal and rest period compensation;

     (2) failure to pay overtime compensation;

     (3) failure to pay minimum wage and wages for all hours
         worked;

     (4) failure to pay timely earned wages;

     (5) failure to pay timely earned wages upon separation of
         employment;

     (6) failure to provide accurate wage statements in violation
         of California Labor Code section 226;

     (7) individual and Private Attorney General Act
         representative claims;

     (8) unfair competition in violation of California Business
         and Professions Code section 17200;

     (9) wrongful termination in violation of public policy; and

    (10) retaliation in violation of the Labor Code section
         1102.5.

CVS removed the case to federal court on July 27, 2016, and
subsequently petitioned to compel arbitration. Elmore's only
argument in opposition to CVS's Petition is that the Arbitration
Agreement is procedurally and substantively unconscionable under
California law.

In his Order dated November 9, 2016 available at
https://is.gd/LUUlgM from Leagle.com, Judge Wright concluded that
Elmore's argument in opposition to CVS's petition failed. The
Court stayed Plaintiff's Claims One through Six, and Eight through
Ten pending the completion of arbitration.

ECOLAB INC: Defendant in 6 Employee Lawsuits
--------------------------------------------
Ecolab Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016, for the quarterly
period ended September 30, 2016, that the company is a defendant
in several pending wage hour lawsuits claiming violations of the
Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") or a similar state law. Of these
suits, two have been certified for class action status.

Ross (formerly Icard) v. Ecolab, U.S. District Court -- Northern
District of California, case no. C 13-05097 PJH, an action under
California state law, has been certified for class treatment of
California Institutional employees. The Court in Ross granted
plaintiffs' motion for partial summary judgment, finding that
Institutional Route Sales Managers are not exempt from overtime
pay under California wage and hour laws. This matter has been
settled. The company has established an accrual to fund the
settlement, which is not material to its results of operations or
financial position.

In Martino v. Ecolab, United States District Court for the
Northern District of California, case no. 5:14-cv-04358-PSG, an
action under California state law, the Court has certified a class
of California Institutional Territory Managers alleging violation
of state wage and hour laws.  This matter has been tentatively
settled, subject to court approval. The company has established an
accrual to fund the settlement, which is not material to its
results of operations or financial position.

The company is a defendant in four other wage hour lawsuits
brought by Institutional Route Sales Managers seeking class
certification of claims for overtime and other relief under
federal or state laws. None of these matters are considered to be
material to the company's results of operations or financial
position.


ECOLAB INC: Nalco Still Faces Deepwater Horizon Claims
------------------------------------------------------
Ecolab Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016, for the quarterly
period ended September 30, 2016, that Nalco Company continues to
face claims related to the Deepwater Horizon incident.

On April 22, 2010, the deepwater drilling platform, the Deepwater
Horizon, operated by a subsidiary of BP plc, sank in the Gulf of
Mexico after a catastrophic explosion and fire that began on April
20, 2010. A massive oil spill resulted. Approximately one week
following the incident, subsidiaries of BP plc, under the
authorization of the responding federal agencies, formally
requested Nalco Company, now an indirect subsidiary of Ecolab, to
supply large quantities of COREXIT(R) 9500, a Nalco oil dispersant
product listed on the U.S. EPA National Contingency Plan Product
Schedule. Nalco Company responded immediately by providing
available COREXIT and increasing production to supply the product
to BP's subsidiaries for use, as authorized and directed by
agencies of the federal government throughout the incident. Prior
to the incident, Nalco and its subsidiaries had not provided
products or services or otherwise had any involvement with the
Deepwater Horizon platform. On July 15, 2010, BP announced that it
had capped the leaking well, and the application of dispersants by
the responding parties ceased shortly thereafter.

On May 1, 2010, the President appointed retired U.S. Coast Guard
Commandant Admiral Thad Allen to serve as the National Incident
Commander in charge of the coordination of the response to the
incident at the national level. The EPA directed numerous tests of
all the dispersants on the National Contingency Plan Product
Schedule, including those provided by Nalco Company, "to ensure
decisions about ongoing dispersant use in the Gulf of Mexico are
grounded in the best available science." Nalco Company cooperated
with this testing process and continued to supply COREXIT, as
requested by BP and government authorities. After review and
testing of a number of dispersants, on September 30, 2010, and on
August 2, 2010, the EPA released toxicity data for eight oil
dispersants.

The use of dispersants by the responding parties was one tool used
by the government and BP to avoid and reduce damage to the Gulf
area from the spill. Since the spill occurred, the EPA and other
federal agencies have closely monitored conditions in areas where
dispersant was applied. Nalco Company has encouraged ongoing
monitoring and review of COREXIT and other dispersants and has
cooperated fully with the governmental review and approval
process. However, in connection with its provision of COREXIT,
Nalco Company has been named in several lawsuits.

Cases arising out of the Deepwater Horizon accident were
administratively transferred for pre-trial purposes to a judge in
the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
Louisiana with other related cases under In Re: Oil Spill by the
Oil Rig "Deepwater Horizon" in the Gulf of Mexico, on April 20,
2010, Case No. 10-md-02179 (E.D. La.) ("MDL 2179").

Putative Class Action Litigation

Nalco Company was named, along with other unaffiliated defendants,
in six putative class action complaints related to the Deepwater
Horizon oil spill: Adams v. Louisiana, et al., Case No. 11-cv-
01051 (E.D. La.); Elrod, et al. v. BP Exploration & Production
Inc., et al., 12-cv-00981 (E.D. La.); Harris, et al. v. BP, plc,
et al., Case No. 2:10-cv-02078-CJBSS (E.D. La.); Irelan v. BP
Products, Inc., et al., Case No. 11-cv-00881 (E.D. La.);
Petitjean, et al. v. BP, plc, et al., Case No. 3:10-cv-00316-RS-
EMT (N.D. Fla.); and, Wright, et al. v. BP, plc, et al., Case No.
1:10-cv-00397-B (S.D. Ala.). The cases were filed on behalf of
various potential classes of persons who live and work in or
derive income from the effected Coastal region. Each of the
actions contains substantially similar allegations, generally
alleging, among other things, negligence relating to the use of
our COREXIT dispersant in connection with the Deepwater Horizon
oil spill. The plaintiffs in these putative class action lawsuits
are generally seeking awards of unspecified compensatory and
punitive damages, and attorneys' fees and costs. These cases have
been consolidated in MDL 2179.

Other Related Claims Pending in MDL 2179

Nalco Company was also named, along with other unaffiliated
defendants, in 23 complaints filed by individuals: Alexander, et
al. v. BP Exploration & Production, et al., Case No. 11-cv-00951
(E.D. La.); Best v. British Petroleum plc, et al., Case No. 11-cv-
00772 (E.D. La.); Black v. BP Exploration & Production, Inc., et
al. Case No. 2:11-cv- 867, (E.D. La.); Brooks v. Tidewater Marine
LLC, et al., Case No. 11-cv- 00049 (S.D. Tex.); Capt Ander, Inc.
v. BP, plc, et al., Case No. 4:10-cv-00364-RH-WCS (N.D. Fla.);
Coco v. BP Products North America, Inc., et al. (E.D. La.); Danos,
et al. v. BP Exploration et al., Case No. 00060449 (25th Judicial
Court, Parish of Plaquemines, Louisiana); Doom v. BP Exploration &
Production, et al. , Case No. 12-cv-2048 (E.D. La.); Duong, et
al., v. BP America Production Company, et al., Case No. 13-cv-
00605 (E.D. La.); Esponge v. BP, P.L.C., et al., Case No. 0166367
(32nd Judicial District Court, Parish of Terrebonne, Louisiana);
Ezell v. BP, plc, et al., Case No. 2:10-cv-01920-KDE-JCW (E.D.
La.); Fitzgerald v. BP Exploration, et al., Case No. 13-cv-00650
(E.D. La.); Hill v. BP, plc, et al., Case No. 1:10-cv-00471-CG-N

Inc., et al., Case No. 2012-22995 (District Court, Harris County,
Texas); Hudley v. BP, plc, et al., Case No. 10-cv-00532-N (S.D.
Ala.); In re of Jambon Supplier II, L.L.C., et al., Case No. 12-

Case No. 12-cv-2338 (E.D. La.); Monroe v. BP, plc, et al., Case
No. 1:10-cv-00472-M (S.D. Ala.); Pearson v. BP Exploration &
Production, Inc., Case No. 2:11-cv-863, (E.D. La.); Shimer v. BP
Exploration and Production, et al, Case No. 2:13-cv-4755 (E.D.
La.); Top Water Charters, LLC v. BP, P.L.C., et al., No. 0165708
(32nd Judicial District Court, Parish of Terrebonne, Louisiana);
Toups, et al. v Nalco Company, et al., Case No. 59-121 (25th
Judicial District Court, Parish of Plaquemines, Louisiana); and,
Trehern v. BP, plc, et al., Case No. 1:10-cv-00432-HSO-JMR (S.D.
Miss.). The cases were filed on behalf of individuals and entities
that own property, live, and/or work in or derive income from the
effected Coastal region. Each of the actions contains
substantially similar allegations, generally alleging, among other
things, negligence relating to the use of our COREXIT dispersant
in connection with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The plaintiffs
in these lawsuits are generally seeking awards of unspecified
compensatory and punitive damages, and attorneys' fees and costs.

Pursuant to orders issued by the court in MDL 2179, the claims
were consolidated in several master complaints, including one
naming Nalco Company and others who responded to the Gulf Oil
Spill (known as the "B3 Master Complaint"). On May 18, 2012, Nalco
filed a motion for summary judgment against the claims in the "B3"
Master Complaint, on the grounds that: (i) Plaintiffs' claims are
preempted by the comprehensive oil spill response scheme set forth
in the Clean Water Act and National Contingency Plan; and (ii)
Nalco is entitled to derivative immunity from suit. On November
28, 2012, the Court granted Nalco's motion and dismissed with
prejudice the claims in the "B3" Master Complaint asserted against
Nalco. The Court held that such claims were preempted by the Clean
Water Act and National Contingency Plan. Because claims in the
"B3" Master Complaint remain pending against other defendants, the
Court's decision is not a "final judgment" for purposes of appeal.
Under Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 4(a), plaintiffs will
have 30 days after entry of final judgment to appeal the Court's
decision.

Nalco Company, the incident defendants and the other responder
defendants have been named as first party defendants by Transocean
Deepwater Drilling, Inc. and its affiliates (the "Transocean
Entities") (In re the Complaint and Petition of Triton Asset
Leasing GmbH, et al, MDL No. 2179, Civil Action 10-2771). In April
and May 2011, the Transocean Entities, Cameron International
Corporation, Halliburton Energy Services, Inc., M-I L.L.C.,
Weatherford U.S., L.P. and Weatherford International, Inc.
(collectively, the "Cross Claimants") filed cross claims in MDL
2179 against Nalco Company and other unaffiliated cross
defendants. The Cross Claimants generally allege, among other
things, that if they are found liable for damages resulting from
the Deepwater Horizon explosion, oil spill and/or spill response,
they are entitled to indemnity or contribution from the cross
defendants.

In April and June 2011, in support of its defense of the claims
against it, Nalco Company filed counterclaims against the Cross
Claimants. In its counterclaims, Nalco Company generally alleges
that if it is found liable for damages resulting from the
Deepwater Horizon explosion, oil spill and/or spill response, it
is entitled to contribution or indemnity from the Cross Claimants.

In December 2012 and January 2013, the MDL 2179 court issued final
orders approving two settlements between BP and Plaintiffs' Class
Counsel: (1) a proposed Medical Benefits Class Action Settlement;
and (2) a proposed Economic and Property Damages Class Action
Settlement. Pursuant to the proposed settlements, class members
agree to release claims against BP and other released parties,
including Nalco Energy Services, LP, Nalco Holding Company, Nalco
Finance Holdings LLC, Nalco Finance Holdings Inc., Nalco Holdings
LLC and Nalco Company.

In May 2016, Nalco was named in nine additional complaints filed
by individuals alleging, among other things, business and economic
loss resulting from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill: Seng Lim v.
BP, Case No. 2:16-cv-03950 (E.D. La.); Dai Nguyen v. BP, Case No.
2:16-cv-03952 (E.D. La.); Thanh Duong v. BP, Case No. 2:16-cv-
03953 (E.D. La.); Nghia Nguyen v. BP, Case No. 2:16-cv-03954 (E.D.
La.); Loc Van Nguyen v. BP, Case No. 2:16-cv-03955 (E.D. La.);
Hanh Phan v. BP, Case No. 2:16-cv-03956 (E.D. La.); Anh Ly v. BP,
Case No. 2:16-cv-03957 (E.D. La.); Danny Tam Ly v. BP, Case No.
2:16-cv-04027 (E.D. La.); Terry v. BP, Case No. 2:16-cv-04137
(E.D. La.).  The plaintiffs in these lawsuits are generally
seeking awards of unspecified compensatory and punitive damages,
and attorneys' fees and costs.  These actions have been
consolidated in the MDL and the company expects they will be
dismissed pursuant to the Court's November 28, 2012 order granting
Nalco's motion for summary judgment.

The company believes the claims asserted against Nalco Company are
without merit and intends to defend these lawsuits vigorously. The
company also believes that it has rights to contribution and/or
indemnification (including legal expenses) from third parties.
However, the company cannot predict the outcome of these lawsuits,
the involvement it might have in these matters in the future, or
the potential for future litigation.

FANNIE MAE: Response to Bid to Dismiss "Voacolo" Suit Due Dec. 5
----------------------------------------------------------------
Federal National Mortgage Association said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3,
2016, for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the
defendants have filed motions to dismiss the case, Voacolo v.
Fannie Mae, in the District of Columbia.

According to a Nov. 4 Order, Plaintiff is required to respond to
Defendants' motions to dismiss on or before December 5, 2016 or
the Court may treat the motions as conceded.

The Company said, "A number of putative class action lawsuits were
filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia
against us, FHFA as our conservator, Treasury and Freddie Mac from
July through September 2013 by shareholders of Fannie Mae and/or
Freddie Mac challenging the August 2012 amendment to each
company's senior preferred stock purchase agreement with Treasury.
These lawsuits were consolidated and, on December 3, 2013,
plaintiffs (preferred and common shareholders of Fannie Mae and/or
Freddie Mac) filed a consolidated class action complaint in the
U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against us, FHFA
as our conservator, Treasury and Freddie Mac ("In re Fannie
Mae/Freddie Mac Senior Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement Class
Action Litigations"). The preferred shareholder plaintiffs allege
that the net worth sweep dividend provisions of the senior
preferred stock that were implemented pursuant to the August 2012
amendments to the senior preferred stock purchase agreements
nullified certain of the shareholders' rights, particularly the
right to receive dividends. The common shareholder plaintiffs
allege that the August 2012 amendments constituted a taking of
their property by requiring that all future profits of Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac be paid to Treasury. Plaintiffs allege claims for
breach of contract and breach of the implied covenant of good
faith and fair dealing against us, FHFA and Freddie Mac, a takings
claim against FHFA and Treasury, and a breach of fiduciary duty
claim derivatively on our and Freddie Mac's behalf against FHFA
and Treasury. Plaintiffs seek to represent several classes of
preferred and/or common shareholders of Fannie Mae and/or Freddie
Mac who held stock as of the public announcement of the August
2012 amendments. Plaintiffs seek unspecified damages, equitable
and injunctive relief, and costs and expenses, including
attorneys' fees."

"A non-class action suit, Arrowood Indemnity Company v. Fannie
Mae, was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of
Columbia on September 20, 2013 by preferred shareholders against
us, FHFA as our conservator, the Director of FHFA (in his official
capacity), Treasury, the Secretary of the Treasury (in his
official capacity) and Freddie Mac. Plaintiffs bring claims for
breach of contract and breach of the implied covenant of good
faith and fair dealing against us, FHFA and Freddie Mac, and
claims for violation of the Administrative Procedure Act against
the FHFA and Treasury defendants, alleging that the net worth
sweep dividend provisions nullified certain rights of the
preferred shareholders, particularly the right to receive
dividends. Plaintiffs seek damages, equitable and injunctive
relief, and costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees.
On September 30, 2014, the court dismissed both lawsuits and
plaintiffs in both suits filed timely notices of appeal. On
October 27, 2014, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit
consolidated these appeals with appeals in two other cases
involving the same subject matter, but to which we are not a
party. The D.C. Circuit heard oral argument on these appeals on
April 15, 2016.

"On June 26, 2016, shareholder David J. Voacolo filed a lawsuit,
Voacolo v. Fannie Mae, in the U.S. District Court for the District
of Columbia against Fannie Mae, FHFA and Treasury alleging a
violation of the Administrative Procedure Act. Plaintiff seeks
damages and a holding that the August 2012 amendment to the senior
preferred stock purchase agreement was arbitrary, capricious or
not otherwise in accordance with the law. The defendants filed
motions to dismiss on September 20, 2016.

"Given the stage of these lawsuits, the substantial and novel
legal questions that remain, and our substantial defenses, we are
currently unable to estimate the reasonably possible loss or range
of loss arising from this litigation."


FCA US LLC: "Bledsoe" Files Suit Over RICO Violations
-----------------------------------------------------
James Bledsoe, Paul Chouffet, Jay Martin, and Martin Rivas, on
behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated,
Plaintiffs, v. FCA US LLC, a Delaware Limited Liability Company,
Defendant, Case No. 2:16-cv-14024, (E.D. Mich., November 14,
2016), seeks recovery of the purchase price of their affected
vehicles, or the overpayment or diminution in value of such,
damages, including punitive damages, costs and disgorgement, pre-
and post-judgment interest on any amounts awarded, award of costs
and attorneys' fees and such other or further relief resulting
from fraudulent concealment and breach of contract and violation
of the Racketeer Influenced And Corrupt Organizations Act,
Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and various state Consumer Protection
Acts.

FCA is a motor vehicle manufacturer and licensed distributor of
the Dodge 2500 and 3500. Actual testing has revealed that its
Cummins 6.7-liter turbo diesel engine emit dangerous levels of NOx
at many times higher than their gasoline counterparts despite its
claim to be cleanest engine in its class and that the catalytic
converter wears out more quickly because it is defective, which
results in the vehicle burning fuel at a higher rate, and often
requiring customers to replace the converter after the warranty
has expired at a cost of approximately $3,000-$5,000.

FERRELLGAS PARTNERS: "Massie" Sues Over Share Price Drop
--------------------------------------------------------
JAMES A. MASSIE, Individually And On Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, Plaintiff, v. Ferrellgas Partners, L.P.,
Ferrellgas, Inc., Stephen L. Wambold and Alan C. Heitmann,
Defendants, Case No. 1:16-cv-08850, (S.D. N.Y., November 15,
2016), seeks compensatory damages, reasonable costs and expenses,
including counsel fees and expert fees, extraordinary, equitable
and/or injunctive relief and such other and further relief under
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Ferrellgas Partners, LP is a corporation organized under the laws
of Delaware with its principal offices located in Overland Park,
Kansas, mainly into propane distribution. Ferrellgas, Inc. is the
general partner of Ferrellgas.

Defendants allegedly failed to disclose that low oil prices were
negatively impacting business operation, the Company was
increasingly over-leveraged, it was unable to operate under the
terms of its credit facility and accounts receivable
securitization facility and that the Company would be forced to
reduce its quarterly distribution. Ferrellgas' share price fell
$3.50 per share upon dissemination of the news, to close at $13.00
per share -- a decline of 21.2% on unusually heavy trading volume.
The stock price has continued to decline, dropping to $8.00 per
share as of November 1, 2016, a decline of over 50% of its value.

Massie purchased securities of Ferrellgas at artificially inflated
prices during the Class Period and has lost substantially.

GLAXOSMITHKLINE LLC: Faces "Strickland" Suit Over Zofran Injuries
-----------------------------------------------------------------
MELONDY STRICKLAND, individually and on behalf of D.E.O, her minor
child v. GLAXOSMITHKLINE, LLC, Case No. 1:16-cv-12291-FDS (D.
Mass., November 15, 2016), is brought against the Defendant for
compensatory and punitive damages arising from the injuries to
D.E.O. as a result of her prenatal exposures to prescription drug
Zofran(R).

Zofran is a powerful drug developed by GSK to treat only those
patients, who were afflicted with the most severe nausea
imaginable -- that suffered as a result of chemotherapy or
radiation treatments in cancer patients.

Melondy Strickland's minor child, Plaintiff D.E.O., was born in
2004 with heart defects, and has since undergone at least 4
corrective surgeries.  Ms. Strickland was prescribed Zofran
beginning early in her first trimester of pregnancy and took it
continuously from then into her second trimester to alleviate and
prevent the symptoms of nausea and stomach pain.

GlaxoSmithKline LLC, doing business as GlaxoSmithKline, is a
limited liability company organized under the laws of the State of
Delaware.  GSK's sole member is GlaxoSmithKline Holdings, Inc.,
which is a Delaware corporation, and which has identified its
principal place of business in Wilmington, Delaware.   GSK is the
successor in interest to Glaxo, Inc. and Glaxo Wellcome Inc.
Glaxo, Inc. was the sponsor of the original New Drug Application
for Zofran.  Glaxo, Inc., through its division Cerenex
Pharmaceuticals, authored the original package insert and labeling
for Zofran, including warnings and precautions attendant to its
use.  Glaxo Wellcome Inc. sponsored additional NDAs for Zofran,
monitored and evaluated post-market adverse event reports arising
from Zofran, and authored product labeling for Zofran.

HARMAN INTERNATIONAL: Discovery Ongoing in Securities Litigation
----------------------------------------------------------------
Harman International Industries, Incorporated said in its Form 10-
Q Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
November 3, 2016, for the quarterly period ended September 30,
2016, that discovery is ongoing in the case, In re Harman
International Industries, Inc. Securities Litigation.

On October 1, 2007, a purported class action lawsuit was filed by
Cheolan Kim (the "Kim Plaintiff") against Harman and certain of
our officers in the United States District Court for the District
of Columbia (the "Court") seeking compensatory damages and costs
on behalf of all persons who purchased our common stock between
April 26, 2007 and September 24, 2007 (the "Class Period"). The
original complaint alleged claims for violations of Sections 10(b)
and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the
"Exchange Act") and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

The complaint alleged that the defendants omitted to disclose
material adverse facts about Harman's financial condition and
business prospects. The complaint contended that had these facts
not been concealed at the time the merger agreement with Kohlberg,
Kravis, Roberts & Co. and Goldman Sachs Capital Partners was
entered into, there would not have been a merger agreement, or it
would have been at a much lower price, and the price of our common
stock therefore would not have been artificially inflated during
the Class Period. The Kim Plaintiff alleged that, following the
reports that the proposed merger was not going to be completed,
the price of our common stock declined, causing the plaintiff
class significant losses.

On November 30, 2007, the Boca Raton General Employees' Pension
Plan filed a purported class action lawsuit against Harman and
certain of our officers in the Court seeking compensatory damages
and costs on behalf of all persons who purchased our common stock
between April 26, 2007 and September 24, 2007. The allegations in
the Boca Raton complaint are essentially identical to the
allegations in the original Kim complaint, and like the original
Kim complaint, the Boca Raton complaint alleges claims for
violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act and
Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

On January 16, 2008, the Kim Plaintiff filed an amended complaint.
The amended complaint, which extended the Class Period through
January 11, 2008, contended that, in addition to the violations
alleged in the original complaint, Harman also violated Sections
10(b) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 promulgated
thereunder by "knowingly failing to disclose "significant
problems" relating to its PND sales forecasts, production,
pricing, and inventory" prior to January 14, 2008. The amended
complaint claimed that when "Defendants revealed for the first
time on January 14, 2008 that shifts in PND sales would adversely
impact earnings per share by more than $1.00 per share in fiscal
2008," that led to a further decline in our share value and
additional losses to the plaintiff class.

On February 15, 2008, the Court ordered the consolidation of the
Kim action with the Boca Raton action, the administrative closing
of the Boca Raton action, and designated the short caption of the
consolidated action as In re Harman International Industries, Inc.
Securities Litigation, civil action no. 1:07-cv-01757 (RWR). That
same day, the Court appointed the Arkansas Public Retirement
System as lead plaintiff ("Lead Plaintiff") and approved the law
firm Cohen, Milstein, Hausfeld and Toll, P.L.L.C. to serve as lead
counsel.

On May 2, 2008, Lead Plaintiff filed a consolidated class action
complaint (the "Consolidated Complaint"). The Consolidated
Complaint, which extended the Class Period through February 5,
2008, contended that Harman and certain of our officers and
directors violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act
and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, by issuing false and
misleading disclosures regarding our financial condition in fiscal
year 2007 and fiscal year 2008. In particular, the Consolidated
Complaint alleged that defendants knowingly or recklessly failed
to disclose material adverse facts about MyGIG radios, personal
navigation devices and our capital expenditures. The Consolidated
Complaint alleged that when Harman's true financial condition
became known to the market, the price of our common stock declined
significantly, causing losses to the plaintiff class.

On July 3, 2008, defendants moved to dismiss the Consolidated
Complaint in its entirety. Lead Plaintiff opposed the defendants'
motion to dismiss on September 2, 2008, and defendants filed a
reply in further support of their motion to dismiss on October 2,
2008.

On April 12, 2012, In re Harman International Industries, Inc.
Securities Litigation, civil action no. 1:07-cv-01757 (D.D.C.) was
reassigned to Judge Rudolph Contreras.

On September 5, 2012, the Court heard oral arguments on
defendants' motion to dismiss. At the request of the Court, on
September 24, 2012, each side submitted a supplemental briefing on
defendants' motion to dismiss. On January 17, 2014, the Court
granted a motion to dismiss, without prejudice. The Lead Plaintiff
appealed this ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District
of Columbia Circuit (the "Court of Appeals") and, on June 23,
2015, the District Court's ruling was reversed and remanded for
further proceedings. On July 23, 2015, the defendants filed a
motion for a rehearing en banc before the Court of Appeals, which
was denied on August 26, 2015. The defendants filed a petition for
a writ of certiorari seeking U.S. Supreme Court review on November
24, 2015, which was denied on February 29, 2016. Discovery in this
matter is ongoing.

Harman believes it is a leader in the design and engineering of
connected products and solutions for automakers, consumers and
enterprises worldwide, including connected car systems, audio and
visual products, enterprise automation solutions and connected
services.

INTERNATIONAL PAPER: Containerboard Producers' Suit Underway
------------------------------------------------------------
International Paper Company said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the
company continues to defend a class suit by containerboard
producers.

In September 2010, eight containerboard producers, including
International Paper and Temple-Inland, were named as defendants in
a purported class action complaint that alleged a civil violation
of Section 1 of the Sherman Act. The suit is captioned Kleen
Products LLC v. International Paper Co. (N.D. Ill.). The complaint
alleges that the defendants, beginning in February 2004 through
November 2010, conspired to limit the supply and thereby increase
prices of containerboard products. The class is all persons who
purchased containerboard products directly from any defendant for
use or delivery in the United States during the period February
2004 to November 2010. The complaint seeks to recover unspecified
treble damages and attorneys' fees on behalf of the purported
class.

Four similar complaints were filed and have been consolidated in
the Northern District of Illinois.

In March 2015, the District Court certified a class of direct
purchasers of containerboard products; in June 2015, the United
States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit granted the
defendants' petition to appeal, and on August 4, 2016, affirmed
the District Court's decision on all counts.

"We will continue to aggressively defend this case, including the
possibility of further challenges to class certification," the
Company said.


INTERNATIONAL PAPER: No Class Cert. Materials Filed in Tenn. Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
International Paper Company said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that no class
certification materials have been filed to date in a lawsuit filed
in state court in Cocke County, Tennessee.

In June 2015, International Paper and Temple-Inland were named as
defendants in a lawsuit, later dismissed without prejudice in
November 2015, captioned Del Monte Fresh Products N.A., Inc. v.
Packaging Corporation of America (S.K. Fl.), in which the
Plaintiff asserted substantially similar allegations to those
raised in the Kleen Products action. Likewise, in June 2016, a
lawsuit captioned Ashley Furniture Indus., Inc. v. Packaging
Corporation of America (W.D. Wis.),was filed in federal court in
Wisconsin. The Ashley Furniture lawsuit closely tracks the
allegations found in the Kleen Products complaint but also asserts
Wisconsin state antitrust claims.

Moreover, in January 2011, International Paper was named as a
defendant in a lawsuit filed in state court in Cocke County,
Tennessee alleging that International Paper violated Tennessee law
by conspiring to limit the supply and fix the prices of
containerboard from mid-2005 to the present. Plaintiffs in the
state court action seek certification of a class of Tennessee
indirect purchasers of containerboard products, damages and costs,
including attorneys' fees.

No class certification materials have been filed to date in the
Tennessee action.

The Company disputes the allegations made and is vigorously
defending each action. However, because the Kleen Products action
is in the discovery stage and the Tennessee and Ashley Furniture
actions are in a preliminary stage, we are unable to predict an
outcome or estimate a range of reasonably possible loss.

--------------------------------------------------------
Lincoln National Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the

OHIO: Appeals Court Affirms Dismissal of Suit v. Tax Commissioner
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Diane V. Grendell of the Ohio Court of Appeals affirmed the
decision of the trial court dismissing the class action complaint
in the case captioned, GLENN AND JODIE CAHILL, Plaintiffs-
Appellants, v. OHIO TAX COMMISSIONER, JOSEPH W. TESTA, Defendant-
Appellee, Case No. 2015-L-111 (Ohio App.).

Plaintiffs-appellants, Glenn and Jodi Cahill commenced a class
action alleging violation of the Equal Protection Clauses of the
Ohio and United States Constitutions, by the Lake County Court of
Common Pleas. The Cahills sought a declaration that R.C.
5747.08(E), requiring "husband and wife" couples to file joint
state tax returns if they have filed joint federal income tax
returns, is unconstitutional since the requirement did not apply
to homosexual couples for the taxable year 2013. The Cahills
alleged the disparate treatment of heterosexual Ohio couples
violated the Equal Protection Clauses of Section 2, Article I of
the Ohio Constitution and the Fourteenth Amendment of the United
States Constitution. The Cahills further sought certification of
the Complaint as a class action pursuant to Rule 23 of the Ohio
Rules of Civil Procedure and an order that the tax commissioner
"disgorge to Plaintiffs and the class members all income taxes
collected by the Defendant pursuant to the unconstitutional
statute greater than the class member would owe upon filing a
separate state return."

On March 30, 2015, the tax commissioner filed a Motion to Dismiss,
pursuant to Civil Rule 12(B)(1) "Plaintiffs' attempt to seek a
refund of their alleged tax overpayment must be resolved through
the special proceedings to which these complex and specialized tax
issues have been committed", (3) ("Plaintiffs bring the litigation
in the wrong venue, requiring dismissal of the action or, at a
minimum, transfer to Franklin County", and (6) "Plaintiffs lack
standing to litigate the tax liability or assert the equal
protection rights of same-sex couples, and they fail to state an
equal protection claim based on their own treatment under Ohio's
tax laws."

On August 25, 2015, the trial court granted the Motion to Dismiss.
The court concluded the Cahills failed to state a claim upon which
relief could be granted.

On appeal, Plaintiffs contend that the trial court erred in
granting Defendant's motion to dismiss, rejecting Plaintiffs'
facial challenge to the constitutionality of R.C. 5747.08(E).

In her Opinion dated November 7, 2016 available at
https://is.gd/FiLm1Q from Leagle.com, Judge Grendell held that the
sole assignment of error is without merit because same-sex couples
are not recognized as married and there was reasonable
justification for the classification or disparate treatment.

SAMARCO MINERACAO: Banco Safra Sues Over Devaluation in Debt Notes
------------------------------------------------------------------
Banco Safra S.A. - Cayman Islands Branch, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated, Plaintiff, v. Samarco
Mineracao S.A. and Ricardo Vescovi De Aragao, Defendants, Case No.
1:16-cv-08800 (S.D. N.Y., November 14, 2016), seeks to recover
compensable damages for violation of the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934.

Between 2012 and 2014, Samarco conducted at least three debt
offerings. In 2012, the Company offered an aggregate principal
amount of $1 billion of 4.125% notes due 2022. In 2013, the
Company offered an aggregate principal amount of $700 million of
5.75% notes due 2023. In 2014, the Company offered an aggregate
principal amount of $500 million of 5.375% notes due 2024.

On November 5, 2015, Samarco's Fundao tailings dam burst, causing
the downstream Santarem water dam to overflow, flooding 60 million
cubic meters of land, decimating the indigenous village of Bento
Rodrigues, and contaminating the Rio Doce River and the water
supply for 200 towns with arsenic, lead, chromium and various
other heavy metals. Brazilian prosecutors have accused Samarco of
deliberate misconduct, charged 21 of its executives with qualified
homicide in connection with the dam's failure, and are seeking
billions of dollars in compensatory and environmental recovery
fees from the Company. Samarco has not resumed its mining
operations since the collapse.

Samarco's Notes significantly declined, harming investors such as
the Plaintiff.

SCIENTIFIC GAMES: Still Faces Oregon State Lottery Claims
---------------------------------------------------------
Scientific Games Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the
Company continues to defend against the claims asserted in the
Oregon State Lottery lawsuit.

On December 31, 2014, a representative of a purported class of
persons alleged to have been financially harmed by relying on the
"auto hold" feature of various manufacturers' video lottery
terminals played in Oregon, filed suit in the Circuit Court of
Multnomah County, Oregon, against the Oregon State Lottery and
various manufacturers, including WMS Gaming Inc.  The suit alleges
that the auto hold feature of video poker games is perceived by
players as providing the best possible playing strategy that will
maximize the odds of the player winning, when such auto hold
feature does not maximize the players' odds of winning. The
plaintiffs are seeking in excess of $134.0 million in monetary
damages.

In April 2015, the court granted the Oregon State Lottery's motion
to dismiss, stating the plaintiffs had not satisfied the Oregon
Tort Claims Act. As a result of the dismissal, the court indicated
that all claims against WMS Gaming Inc. were moot. In June 2015,
plaintiffs filed an appeal.

"We intend to vigorously defend against the claims asserted in the
lawsuit," the Company said.

Scientific Games is a developer of technology-based products and
services and associated content for the worldwide gaming, lottery
and interactive gaming industries.

STAAR SURGICAL: Dec. 12 Hearing on Todd's Class Certification Bid
-----------------------------------------------------------------
STAAR Surgical Company said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the court has
scheduled for hearing on December 12, 2016, on Edward Todd's
Motion for Class Certification.

On July 8, 2014, a putative securities class action lawsuit was
filed by Edward Todd against STAAR and three officers in the U.S.
District Court for the Central District of California. The
plaintiff claims that STAAR made misleading statements to and
omitted material information from our investors between February
27, 2013 and June 30, 2014 about alleged regulatory violations at
STAAR's Monrovia manufacturing facility.

On October 20, 2014, plaintiff amended its complaint, dismissed
two Company officers, added one other officer, reduced the alleged
Class Period to November 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014, and
demanded compensatory damages and attorneys' fees.

On August 19, 2016, plaintiff filed a Motion for Class
Certification, which the court scheduled for hearing on December
12, 2016.

Although the ultimate outcome of this action cannot be determined
with certainty, the Company believes that the allegations in the
Complaint are without merit. The Company intends to vigorously
defend itself against this lawsuit.

The Company has not recorded any loss or accrual in the
accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements at
September 30, 2016 and January 1, 2016 for this matter as the
likelihood and amount of loss, if any, has not been determined and
is not currently estimable.

STAAR Surgical Company designs, develops, manufactures and sells
implantable lenses for the eye and companion delivery systems used
to deliver the lenses into the eye.


STONEMOR PARTNERS: "Anderson" Sues Over Share Price Drop
--------------------------------------------------------
Judson Anderson, on behalf of all others similarly situated,
Plaintiffs, v. Stonemor Partners, L.P., Lawrence Miller, Sean P.
Mcgrath, Robert B. Hellman, Jr. and Timothy Yost Defendants, Case
No. 2:16-cv-06111, (E.D. Penn., November 21, 2016), seeks damages,
prejudgment and post-judgment interest, as well as their
reasonable attorneys' fees, expert fees and other costs under the
Securities and Exchange Act of 1934.

Plaintiff purchased common units of StoneMor Partners, LP between
January 19, 2012 and October 27, 2016. He alleges that Defendants
fraudulently feigned profitability in order to keep selling high-
yield securities to new investors. Since becoming a publicly
traded company, StoneMor has never in any year generated
sufficient cash flow from operations to make the Company's
distributions.

On October 27, 2016, with no new capital infused into the Company
since at least June 30, 2016, StoneMor was forced to materially
cut its distribution in half, causing the price of StoneMor units
to drop by over 45% by the close of trading the following day on
heavy volume.

Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

Plaintiff initiated the action by filing a complaint in Kern
County Superior Court, Case No. BCL-16-012755 on July 18, 2016.
Plaintiff alleges that since January 2016, "Defendant has called
Plaintiff approximately three hundred times on his cell number."
Plaintiff contends these "calls were excessive and harassing," and
"were not for emergency purposes as defined by 47 U.S.C. Section
227(b)(1)(A)."

In the motion, Defendants seek to stay the action pending a ruling
by the D.C. Circuit Court, which is considering the definition of
"automatic telephone dialing system" under the TCPA. Defendant
observes that the D.C. Circuit court is currently considering the
TCPA definition of "automatic telephone dialing system" in ACA
International v. Federal Communications Commission, Case No. 15-
1211 (ACA International). Because Plaintiff alleges Defendant used
an "automatic telephone dialing system" as defined by the TCPA to
place its phone calls, Defendant asserts the definition "is a
central element of Plaintiff's claim." According to Defendant,
"Once the D.C. Circuit rules upon this issue, either Plaintiff's
TCPA claim will be extinguished or the ruling will dictate the
scope of the issues and discovery needed in the case."

In her Order dated November 7, 2016 available at
https://is.gd/C2jK8n from Leagle.com, Judge Thurston held that
Plaintiff failed to demonstrate he would be prejudiced by the
stay, given the early stage of the proceedings and the found
preservation of judicial resources weigh in favor of granting the
entry of a stay pending resolution of the issue before the D.C.
Circuit Court of Appeals.

UNIT CORP: Class Certification Issues Pending in Panola ISD Case
----------------------------------------------------------------
Unit Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 3, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the merits of
Plaintiffs' claims will remain stayed while class certification
issues are pending in the case, Panola Independent School District
No. 4, et al. v. Unit Petroleum Company, No. CJ-07-215, District
Court of Latimer County, Oklahoma.

The Company said, "Panola Independent School District No. 4,
Michael Kilpatrick, Gwen Grego, Carla Lessel, Thelma Christine
Pate, Juanita Golightly, Melody Culberson, and Charlotte Abernathy
are the Plaintiffs in this case and are royalty owners in oil and
gas drilling and spacing units for which the company's exploration
segment distributes royalty. The Plaintiffs' central allegation is
that the company's exploration segment has underpaid royalty
obligations by deducting post-production costs or marketing
related fees. Plaintiffs sought to pursue the case as a class
action on behalf of persons who receive royalty from us for our
Oklahoma production."

"We have asserted several defenses including that the deductions
are permitted under Oklahoma law. We have also asserted that the
case should not be tried as a class action due to the materially
different circumstances that determine what, if any, deductions
are taken for each lease.

"On December 16, 2009, the trial court entered its order
certifying the class. On May 11, 2012 the court of civil appeals
reversed the trial court's order certifying the class. The
Plaintiffs petitioned the supreme court for certiorari and on
October 8, 2012, the Plaintiff's petition was denied.

"On January 22, 2013, the Plaintiffs filed a second request to
certify a class of royalty owners that was slightly smaller than
their first attempt. Since then, the Plaintiffs have further
amended their proposed class to just include royalty owners
entitled to royalties under certain leases located in Latimer, Le
Flore, and Pittsburg Counties, Oklahoma. In July 2014, a second
class certification hearing was held where, in addition to the
defenses described above, we argued that the amended class
definition is still deficient under the court of civil appeals
opinion reversing the initial class certification. Closing
arguments were held on December 2, 2014. There is no timetable for
when the court will issue its ruling. The merits of Plaintiffs'
claims will remain stayed while class certification issues are
pending."
