CALIFORNIA: Court Tosses "Endsley" Suit With Leave to Amend
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. William Alsup dismissed with leave to amend within 28
days of the date the order is filed, the complaint in the lawsuit
entitled MARK ANTHONY LOWELL ENDSLEY, and all other Non-LPS
patients who are or may be committed to Napa State Hospital v.
CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF STATE HOSPITALS; EDMUND G. BROWN; DOLLY
MATTEUCCI; PAM AHLIN, Case No. 3:16-cv-04219-WHA (N.D. Cal.).

Mark Anthony Lowell Endsley, a civil detainee at Napa State
Hospital, filed the pro se civil rights complaint on behalf of
himself and a class of other civil detainees committed by the
state of California to Napa state Hospital.

Mr. Endsley's application to proceed in forma pauperis is granted.
The motion for appointment of counsel is denied because the Court
does not have the authority to "appoint" counsel in a civil case.
The Plaintiff's pending motions (motion for class certification
and motion for an order to show cause, a temporary restraining
order, and a preliminary injunction) are denied.

Judge Alsup ruled that the amended complaint must include the
caption used in the Order and the civil case number C 16-4219 WHA
and the words FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT on the first page. Because
an amended complaint completely replaces the original complaint,
the Plaintiff must include in it all the claims he wishes to
present, Judge Alsup told the Plaintiff.  The Plaintiff may not
incorporate material from the original complaint by reference.
Failure to amend within the designated time and in accordance with
the Order will result in the dismissal of the case.

GEORGIA POWER: Appeals Court Flips Dismissal of "Cazier" Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Michael P. Boggs of the Court of Appeals of Georgia, Second
Division, wrote an opinion in the CAZIER, et al., v. GEORGIA POWER
COMPANY, Case No. A16A1313, concluding that the trial court erred
in concluding that petitioners failed to exhaust their
administrative remedies and in dismissing the petition and denying
the motion for class certification on that basis.

Electric power customers brought the action against Georgia Power
seeking certification as a class action and refunds for alleged
overpayment of sales taxes and improper calculation of municipal
franchise fees.

The Court of Appeals, therefore, vacates the judgment of the trial
court and remand for proceedings consistent with the opinion and
its opinion in Georgia Power Co. v. Cazier, 321 Ga.App. 576 (740
S.E.2d 458) (2013).

INTERACTIVECORP: Company Control Challenged in "Miller" Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
Charles Miller, Jessie Lew Mahoney and Janet Ann Denton, on behalf
of themselves and all other similarly situated stockholders of
IAC/InterActiveCorp. (IAC), Plaintiffs, v. IAC/InterActiveCorp,
Barry Diller, Edgar Bronfman, Jr., Michael Eisner, Bonnie Hammer,
Bryan Lourd, Alan Spoon, Victor Kaufman, Helsea Clinton, Alexander
Von Furstenberg, Joseph Levin, David Rosenblatt and Richard F.
Zannino, Defendants, Case No. 59865675, (Del. Ch., November 22,
2016), seeks appropriate compensatory damages, together with pre-
and post-judgment interest, costs, expenses, and disbursements of
this action, including attorneys' and experts' fees and such other
and further relief for breach of fiduciary duty.

Plaintiffs allege that IAC's controlling stockholder, Barry
Diller, plans to create a new, non-voting class of stock for the
express purpose of maintaining the Diller family's voting control.
Diller, his family, and their trusts own less than 8% of IAC's
outstanding stock, but wield 44% of the Company's voting power
through super-voting Class B shares. Diller exercises further
control as Chairman and Senior Executive. At 74 years old, he is
now improperly using his control to perpetuate himself in power
for the remainder of his life, and then pass control to family
members who have never run IAC.

MARYLAND: Sued Over Harmful Soil and Soil Vapor Contaminates
------------------------------------------------------------
Riggs Park Advocates for Environmental Justice Association, LLC
742 Oglethorpe St NE Washington DC 20011; Shiloh Church ofGod 7th
Day, 5701 Eastern Ave, Hyattsville MD 29782; John R. Dunston, 5842
Eastern Ave, NE Washington, DC 20011; and Linda G. Pulley, 645
Kensington PI. Washington DC 20011, et al., the Plaintiffs v.
State of Maryland, State of Maryland Department of the Environment
Chevron U.S.A. Having its principal place of business in the State
of California, the Defendants, Case No. 2016 CA 008454 (D.C.
Super. Ct., Nov. 18, 2016), seeks to secure redress from the
Defendants for damages suffered by Plaintiffs.

According to the complaint, the Defendants' groundwater database
test results are evidence that years of hazardous toxic chemicals
did release into the environment which resulted in Defendants
perpetrating annual conspiracies to conceal and not disclose the
presence of hazardous toxic chemicals, which pose a real and
imminent danger to Plaintiffs. Defendants knew or should have
known hazardous contaminates were migrating towards a known
sensitive receptor, minority population causing Plaintiffs to
experience more than normal medical, mental and financial
stressors and damage to Plaintiffs' real properties.

The complaint says Defendants had superior knowledge of then
current remedial technologies to provide protections from the
harmful soil and soil vapor contaminates. Nondisclosure will
become the equivalent of fraudulent concealment when it becomes
the duty of a person to speak in order that the party with whom he
is dealing may be placed on equal footing. Even when parties are
dealing at arms' length, a duty to disclose may arise from the
existence of material fact particularly within the knowledge of
the party sought to be charged and not within the fair and
reasonable reach of the other party. Because of the Defendants'
breaches of duty, the Plaintiffs assert that the actions of the
Defendants (civil conspiracy) violated various District of
Columbia and Federal Civil Rights protections which caused
Plaintiffs' to experience undue hardships, stress-generated life
experiences as the Plaintiffs experienced increasing medical and
mental expenses. Defendants' putative conduct was willful and
outrageous.

As a direct and proximate result of the Defendants trespass, the
Plaintiffs and punitive class members have been harmed and
injured, in their person and real property, says the complaint.

Maryland is a Mid-Atlantic state that's defined by its abundant
waterways and coastlines on the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean.

RAIN INTERNATIONAL: Sued by Joyce Over Sales Tax Overcharging
-------------------------------------------------------------
Linda Joyce, individually, and on behalf of other persons
similarly situated and the general public v. RAIN INTERNATIONAL
and DOES 1 to 100, inclusive, Case No. BC641056 (Cal. Super. Ct.,
Los Angeles Cty., November 18, 2016), alleges that the Defendants
are engaged in illegal conduct (overcharging on sales tax) that
violates the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, false advertising, and
Unfair Competition laws.

Rain International is a foreign entity, not registered with the
California Secretary of State, yet doing business throughout
California.  The Defendants sell health-related products
throughout California, including Los Angeles County.  The true
names and capacities of the Doe Defendants are unknown to the
Plaintiff.

According to the complaint, the Defendants sell their health-
related products to the public and collect sales tax on those
sales.  However, they have a policy whereby they overcharge for
sales tax, keeping the overage as profit.  The Plaintiff sent the
Defendants a Consumer Legal Remedies Act ("CLRA") notice but the
Defendants refused to change their illegal practice, resulting in
this lawsuit.
