ADVOCATES FOR JUVENILE: Court Rejects York's Bid to Certify Class
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled BEVERLY YORK, ET AL v. ADVOCATES FOR
JUVENILE AND ADULT RIGHTS, Case No. 2:16-cv-12487-EEF-DEK (E.D.
La.), the Court denied Plaintiff's motion to certify a class of:

   "all Direct Service Workers ("DSWs") at AJAR worked more than
   forty hours a week, but were not paid for overtime or all the
   hours they worked."

The Court further ordered that Plaintiffs shall submit additional
evidence to support class certification.

The Court said, Plaintiffs do not provide any evidence to support
their allegations that the same employment policies applied to all
DSWs employed at AJAR. To prevail on their motion for conditional
certification, Plaintiffs must provide "at least some evidence
beyond unsupported factual assertions of a single decision,
policy, or plan."

To support their allegations, Plaintiffs could provide an
affidavit from the two named Plaintiffs demonstrating how they
knew this policy was applied to all DSWs or submit evidence of an
employment agreement outlining the terms of employment for DSWs.
However, they have not provided any evidence beyond the
unsupported factual assertions in their complaint. Thus, because
they have not provided evidence that similarly situated
individuals exist, or evidence that such individuals were
"together victims of a single decision, policy or plan,"
Plaintiffs have not satisfied their burden of demonstrating they
are similarly situated to the purported class.

However, Plaintiffs may already possess sufficient evidence to
demonstrate the existence of putative class members, just failed
to submit it to the Court. If such evidence does exist,
conditionally certifying this case as a collective class action
would serve judicial efficiency, and protect the interests of any
similarly-situated putative class members.

Because district courts have discretionary power when determining
whether to implement the collective action procedure, the Court
finds it appropriate to give Plaintiffs an additional ten days to
acquire and submit evidence, if any exists, demonstrating that
there are other AJAR employees similarly situated to the named
Plaintiffs, who were subject to the same employment policies.
After such evidence has been submitted, the Court will reconsider
whether conditional certification is warranted in this matter. If
the Court conditionally certifies the class, the Court will then
evaluate whether Plaintiffs' proposed notice is appropriate.

APPLE INC: Attorney Asks Judge to Open Client's iPhone
------------------------------------------------------
Nicholas Iovino, writing for Courthouse News Service reported that
in a last-ditch effort to save a class action over Apple's iPhone
warranties, an attorney on December 14, pleaded with a federal
judge in San Francisco, to open up her client's iPhone and take a
look.

"This is critical whether the phone is new or not," class counsel
Renee Kennedy told U.S. District Judge William H. Orrick at the
hearing on a motion for summary judgment. "I don't believe the
phone is new for a minute, and I think if we open it up, we're
going to find it's not new."

Former lead plaintiff Patricia Adkins sued Apple in November 2013,
claiming it falsely represented that its AppleCare warranty plans
guaranteed customers new parts and products for repairs and
replacements.

Adkins was terminated from the suit in January 2015 and replaced
by lead plaintiff Fabrienne English, who claims Apple gave her two
replacement phones that immediately froze and shut down without
warning, though none of the packaging indicated the devices were
anything but new.

Orrick denied English's motion for class certification in January,
finding problems with her theories of liability, adequacy of
counsel, and that little was offered to counter evidence that the
replacement phones she received were actually new.

English appealed the class certification denial in April after the
judge rejected her motion for reconsideration. That appeal is
pending in the Ninth Circuit.

During the motion hearing on December 14, Orrick said Apple
records indicating English's phone replacements were new are
"uncontradicted by any specific, credible evidence."

But Kennedy said her clients have proof that could rebut those
claims: English's old replacement phone that can be analyzed to
test the veracity of Apple's records.

"Not to allow the testing of the phone is very shocking," Kennedy
said. "We're totally relying on Apple being transparent, and
there's not a need to do that."

Kennedy said the phone test is a simple procedure that could be
done in one day: Open it up and see if any of the inside parts
have stickers or fingerprints indicating the device was made with
refurbished parts.

Kennedy also pleaded with Orrick to let her depose an Apple store
employee who allegedly denied her client a second replacement
phone to which she was entitled, in February 2014.

But Kennedy said that even without that testimony, "we have enough
evidence that we should be able to move on from this" to a jury.

As for damages, Kennedy said she would seek at least the cost of a
new iPhone along with damages for Apple's misrepresentation of its
warranty plan.

Apple attorney Purvish Patel disagreed, saying damages would at
most amount to half the cost of the warranty plan, or "$49 and
some change," based on English's claim that she was denied a
second replacement device.

Even that meager amount would depend on an Apple employee's
testimony contradicting evidence in the company's transaction
records, Patel added.

"If you're balancing the amount of evidence here on the opposite
side of potential testimony, I don't see it going anywhere," Patel
said.

After about 45 minutes of debate, Orrick took the arguments under
advisement.

Kennedy is based in Friendswood, Texas.

Patel is with Morrison Foster in Los Angeles.

   "(a) all individuals with Wisconsin addresses, (b) who were
   sent a letter by defendant Associated Collectors, Inc.,
   referring to a fee for payment by credit or debit card (c) at
   any time during a period beginning one year prior to the
   filing of this action and ending 20 days after the filing of
   this action".

The Plaintiff further asks that Edelman, Combs, Latturner &
Goodwin, LLC and Stern Thomasson LLP be appointed counsel for the
class.

According to the complaint, the Defendant has sent plaintiff
Heather Boucher a series of letters in an effort to collect
medical debts. The Plaintiff received each letter in the regular
course of the mail, some days later. All of the debts were for
personal, family or household purposes and not for business
purposes. The Defendants treated each of the medical debts as
being in default when defendants first became involved with them.
Each letter invited payment by Visa and Mastercard and stated, "A
fee of 3% of the transaction amount or $25.00, whichever is less,
may, as permitted by law, be added to allpayments made by credit
card or debit card."  Plaintiff's counsel contends that there is
no agreement authorizing such a charge and no statute authorizing
such a charge in the absence of an agreement. The fee therefore
may never be charged. It is defendant's regular practice to add a
fee of 3% of the transaction amount or $25.00, whichever is less,
to all payments made by credit card or debit card, and to state
that it will do so in collection letters.

Defendant, Case No. BC643507 (Cal. Super. Ct., Dec. 9, 2016),
seeks to recover unpaid wages pursuant to the California Labor
Code and the Industrial Welfare Commission ("IWC") Wage Order.

The Defendant allegedly failed and continues to fail to correctly

all hours worked, including overtime worked. State law provides
that employees must be paid overtime at one-and-one-half times
their "regular rate of pay." The Plaintiff and other California
Class Members were compensated at an hourly rate plus they earned
and were paid non-discretionary incentive pay, including
commission compensation.

The Defendant is a New York corporation which owns and operates
women's clothing and lifestyle boutiques throughout the United

CAVALRY PORTFOLIO: Placeholder Motion to Certify Class Filed
------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned TOM SUXSTORF, Individually and on Behalf
of All Others Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. CAVALRY
PORTFOLIO SERVICES, LLC, and CAVALRY SPV I, LLC, the Defendants,
Case No. 2:16-cv-01603-JPS (E.D. Wisc.), the Plaintiff asks the
Court to enter an order certifying a class, appointing the
Plaintiff as its representative, and appointing Ademi &
O'Reilly, LLP as its Counsel.

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

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

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

CHEVRON CORP: Asks Court to Reject Nigerian Residents Class Bid
---------------------------------------------------------------
Nicholas Iovino, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported
that citing problems with fraud, a lack of evidence and obstacles
to enforcing a U.S. court's judgment overseas, a Chevron attorney
on December 9, urged a federal judge not to certify a class of
Nigerian residents seeking $1.5 billion in damages over a 2012 gas
rig explosion.

Lead plaintiff Dr. Foster Ogola sued Chevron in January 2014,
claiming an estimated 65,000 residents of the Niger Delta Region
in Southern Nigeria suffered health problems and loss of income
from fishing and farming due to contamination caused by the blast.

The KS Endeavor, an offshore natural-gas drilling well six miles
off the coast of Southern Nigeria in North Apoi Field, exploded on
Jan. 16, 2012, igniting a fire that burned for 46 days.

During a hearing on Decemeber 9, Chevron attorney Robert
Mittelstaedt ticked off a long list of reasons why U.S. District
Judge Susan Illston should deny class certification, starting with
obstacles in verifying individual claims of income loss, property
damage and health problems.

Chevron received 5,630 claims for damages from potential class
members as of mid-September and found fraudulent signatures or
thumbprints on several of the claims forms, according to the oil
giant's opposition brief.

"Some of the claims were people who had been deceased before the
incident," Mittelstaedt said.

He added that the class's counsel, Jacqueline Perry, had
acknowledged there would be "bad apples" because Nigeria is a
"corrupt place."

"The only way to weed out the bad apples is to go one by one,"
Mittelstaedt argued.

Proving how much Nigerian fishermen actually lost in income due to
alleged water contamination poses another challenge, Mittelstaedt
said, because no records exist to verify their income.

Mittelstaedt said Nigerians "rarely" file income tax returns, and
that Chevron has received no tax filings from those claiming
damages, despite repeated requests.

But Illston did not seem totally convinced. "It's troublesome here
that because of the way a country conducts its business, they
could never have recourse," she said. "That they could never have
recourse because of the way they live feels wrong."

Mittelstaedt said the court must rely on the plaintiffs' testimony
as evidence, but he pointed out several inconsistencies from
Nigerian fishermen's depositions.

He showed the judge excerpts from two deposition videos to
illustrate his point.

The Chevron attorney also argued plaintiffs should press their
claims in the proper venue -- Nigerian court -- where at least 70
lawsuits over the 2012 gas rig explosion have already been filed,
including one class action.

"I assume Chevron is not embracing Nigeria's jurisdiction over
it," Illston replied.

The judge acknowledged there could be problems ensuring class
members would be precluded from pursuing claims over the explosion
in Nigerian court if a U.S. court had already awarded damages.

Turning to the debate over environmental harm, Mittelstaedt sought
to discredit two of the plaintiffs' expert witnesses as
plagiarizers.

The plaintiffs asked the court in November for permission to
substitute one expert, Professor Jasper Abowei, whom Chevron
accused of "self-plagiarizing work from an earlier study," with
another expert, Professor Eyiwunmi Falaye.

But Mittelstaedt also hurled accusations of plagiarism at the
plaintiff's proposed substitute expert, claiming Falaye copied a
report from the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico and
simply changed the words "oil spill" to "gas blowout."

Moving past plagiarism, Mittelstaedt contended that neither expert
cited any data related to the gas rig explosion in their reports.
He also argued the plaintiffs' analyses of seabed samples failed
to identify "in any reasonably scientific way" the impact caused
by the blast or its zone of impact.

In a reply brief to Chevron's opposition to class certification,
the plaintiffs said sonar imaging shows gas has likely continued
to seep from the seafloor because of the blast, and that a study
of seabed samples "unequivocally" shows the blowout "had long-
term, persistent impacts on the surrounding marine habitat."  The
plaintiffs also say an analysis of roundworms found in seabed
samples shows the seafloor habitats were "subject to persistent
and ongoing" stress.

After about 90 minutes of debate, Illston took the arguments under
submission.

The plaintiffs filed a fourth amended complaint in September 2015
after now-retired U.S. District Judge Samuel Conti dismissed the
suit with leave to amend last year.  Ogola and four others were
terminated as named plaintiffs in September 2015. Natto Iyela
Gbarabe, a fisherman from the Koluama community in the Southern
Ijaw Local Government area of Bayelsa State in the Niger Delta,
now serves as the sole named plaintiff.

Potential damages for the gas rig explosion could exceed $1.5
billion, according to the fourth amended complaint.

Chevron, which Forbes names as the world's third-largest oil and
gas company, earned $129.9 billion in revenue and $4.58 billion in
profits last year, according to the company's 2015 annual report.

The case is, NATTO IYELA GBARABE, on Behalf of Himself and All
Others Similarly Situated, Plaintiff, v. CHEVRON CORPORATION,
Defendant, Case No. 14-CV00173-SI (N.D. Cal.).

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA: Faces Suit Over Prolonged Detentions
----------------------------------------------------------
Eva Fedderly, writing for Courthouse News Service reported that a
class action claims in Washington, the District of Columbia
routinely keeps inmates in its jail beyond their court-mandated
sentences and subjects them body cavity searches and other
indignities during these prolonged detentions.

In a complaint filed Dec. 7 in the U.S. District Court for the
District of Columbia, lead plaintiff Richard Jones says that after
a hearing in federal court in December 2015, a judge ordered his
release, but instead of immediately being freed he was taken back
to jail where he was held for several more hours.

During this time, Jones says, he was returned to the jail's
general population and subjected to a strip search and visual body
cavity search without cause.

He says this happened because elected officials and those who run
the jail on a day-to-day basis have a "deliberate indifference to
the effect of the practice of blanket strip searches and visual
body cavity searches on the rights of inmates."

The class action says Jones's experience was not unique, and that
the D.C. Department of Corrections has a long history of holding
inmates beyond their expected release dates.

"Although the District had agreed to stop these practices, and
indeed had done so in the context of the settlement of Bynum v.
District of Columbia, Civil Action No. 02-956 (RCL) and Barnes v.
District of Columbia, 06-315 (RCL), the practices stop have not
stopped based on public filings and discussions with attorneys
practicing in the District courts," the complaint says.

Jones says he's filed the lawsuit on behalf of two classes: The
"over detained," the lawsuit's description of those kept past
their release dates and the "strip search class."

He says the District of Columbia's policies regarding inmates have
negatively affected all members of both classes, and he claims
injunctive relief would benefit both.  He also suggests the court
appoint an independent monitor to oversee the corrections
department "to ensure that all inmates are released on or before
their release dates."

Jones also seeks unspecified compensatory and consequential
damages.

EARTHGRAINS: Urenas Seek to Extend Time to File Class Cert. Bid
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled as RUDY URENA and VICTOR URENA, on behalf of
themselves and all others similarly situated, the PLAINTIFFS, v.
EARTHGRAINS DISTRIBUTION, LLC, EARTHGRAINS BAKING CO., INC., and
DOES 1 through 10, inclusive, the DEFENDANTS, Case No. 8:16-cv-
00634-CJC-DFM (C.D. Cal.), the Plaintiffs ask the Court to extend
by 90 days -- through May 1, 2017 -- their deadline to file a
motion for class certification.  The filing deadline is currently
set for January 30, 2017.

The Plaintiffs explain that the extension will provide the
Defendant adequate time to complete its written discovery
obligations and depose a reasonable number of management
witnesses.  According to the complaint, Plaintiffs are still
waiting for Defendants' substantive responses to routine
interrogatories and document productions. Plaintiffs have not yet
been able to begin depositions because baseline documents needed
for preparation and examination of witnesses have not yet been
produced. Indeed, Defendants have not commenced production of ESI
or provided Plaintiffs with a date certain when that production
will conclude. Instead of producing documents relevant to class
certification that have been the subject of Plaintiffs' meet and
confer efforts, 85 percent of Defendants' production to date
consists of settlement statements that Plaintiffs never requested
Defendants to prioritize for the upcoming class certification
briefing; indeed, Plaintiffs requested that Defendants instead
produce the much shorter summary reports of this information,
which Defendants never produced. A 90-day continuance is necessary
to ensure that Plaintiffs are afforded the discovery necessary to
properly prepare and present their motion for this Court's
consideration.

ELECTROLUX HOME: Grasso, et al. Seek Certification of Class
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled WENDY and NICHOLAS GRASSO, on behalf of
themselves and all others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v.
ELECTROLUX HOME PRODUCTS, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 8:16-cv-
00911-CEH-TGW (M.D. Fla.), the Plaintiffs ask the Court to certify
a class of:

   "all persons who purchased a washing machine primarily for
   personal, family, or household purposes and not for resale in
   the State of Florida."

The Plaintiffs further ask the Court to appoint the Plaintiffs'
counsel as co-lead class counsel, and the Plaintiffs as
representatives of the class.

The Plaintiffs allege that Electrolux marketed and sold to them -
and thousands of customers across the State of Florida -- front-
loading washing machines that Electrolux knew to be defective.
Specifically, the washing machines were designed and manufactured
with defective parts that allowed mold, mildew, bacteria, and
other "biofilms" to grow inside of the machines, where customers
are unable to clean them, resulting in noxious odors on the
customers' clothes and in their homes.  When customers called to
complain to Electrolux, or make a warranty claim, Electrolux
maintained that it was honoring its warranty by providing
customers with uniform cleaning instructions that were not
provided to customers prior to their purchase of the washing
machines.  But, beyond simple visual inspection, Electrolux never
did any testing to confirm that these cleaning instructions
actually worked beyond reducing the appearance of mold growth in
the Washing Machines.

ENHANCED RECOVERY: Placeholder Motion for Class Cert. Filed
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned as THERESE KRUEGER and ZACHARIAH PINKNEY,
Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated, the
Plaintiffs, v. ENHANCED RECOVERY COMPANY, LLC, the Defendant, Case
No. 2:16-cv-01639 (E.D. Wisc.), the Plaintiffs ask the Court to
enter an order certifying a class, appointing the Plaintiffs as
representatives, and appointing Ademi & O'Reilly, LLP as Counsel.

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

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

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

FIELDTURF USA: Faces NJ Class Suit Over Synthetic Grass
-------------------------------------------------------
Nick Rummell, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported that a
New Jersey city and a school district have filed a class action in
Newark, N.J., accusing a leading turf manufacturer of selling them
faulty and potentially dangerous synthetic grass, and state
lawmakers have asked the Federal Trade Commission to investigate.

In a federal class action on December 14, the borough of Carteret,
a town of 23,000 in central New Jersey, says FieldTurf USA sold it
six Duraspine-brand synthetic grass fields from 2006 to 2010,
claiming it had a lifespan of at least 10 years. But the turf
deteriorated much more quickly due to defective fiber and posed
safety concerns, Carteret says.

It calls the Duraspine sales a "massive scheme" and says, "New
Jersey was a major target of the fraud." FieldTurf "ignored all
the red flags to earn more than $570 million through the sale of
nearly 1,500 defective fields," according to the complaint.

Duraspine was discontinued in 2012.

The Newark school district filed a similar class action on Dec. 7
in Essex County Superior Court, claiming FieldTurf defrauded more
than 100 New Jersey schools by selling the defective turf through
an aggressive advertising campaign.

New Jersey Senators Cory Booker and Robert Menendez have asked the
state attorney general and the FTC to investigate, as have state
lawmakers. The uproar came after the New Jersey Star-Ledger
published a report this month revealing the alleged cover-up of
the failing synthetic grass fields.

In an internal e-mail of 2007 FieldTurf executive Kenny Gilman
called the marketing campaign "ridiculous" and said it could
subject the company "to tons of exposure from a legal standpoint,"
according to Carteret's complaint.

"On the marketing side the claims made regarding the Duraspine and
Hard/Soft fiber are ridiculous," Gilman wrote in the November 2007
e-mail, the borough says. "Every day we are putting stuff out
there that can't and won't live up to the marketing spin. We have
to control this somehow!!!"

Gilman, the son of the company's co-founder, was fired in 2008,
after which he worked as a vice president at competitor AstroTurf.
FieldTurf has said it is "unaware of the precise reason that he
was let go," suggesting it was due to a new CEO rebuilding the
company's executive team.

Carteret said it installed the synthetic grass on a soccer field
in 2006 and more synthetic fields in 2010 for areas used by
children. Within six years, the turf at both areas began to show
"excessive degradation," which the borough worried could lead to
injury.

Carteret contacted FieldTurf in 2013 about the degradation.
FieldTurf inspected the degraded field but delayed answering
follow-up questions about the warranty for the next three years,
the borough says. Finally, this year, FieldTurf e-mailed the
borough with remediation proposals that would cost thousands of
dollars, the town says.

"FieldTurf's stonewalling appears to have been an effort to allow
the warranty period to expire," Carteret says. The defective
fields have not been repaired or replaced.

The synthetic turf often appears striped, as fibers fall flat on
some areas while remaining upright on others, the town says. The
turf also split, the fibers would thin and color would degrade
over large areas, Carteret says.

The borough says FieldTurf has received "a significant amount of
complaints" about the problems by 2009, two years after Gilman's
embarrassing emails.

In fact, FieldTurf sued its suppliers Mattex Leisure Industries
and TenCate in 2011, alleging fraudulent inducement, Carteret says
in the complaint. It says FieldTurf claimed TenCate, which
eventually acquired Mattes, had altered the fiber formula by using
cheaper ingredients that made it less durable. The companies
settled in 2014.

FieldTurf advertised its product, one of the most expensive on the
market, as a way for towns and athletic departments to save
millions of dollars and boasted that its turf systems had been
used in two Super Bowls, the World Series, and college football
bowl games.

The company also claimed in advertising that its extended warranty
would likely never be used due to the "unmatched durability" of
the turf.

FieldTurf has defended its reaction to the Duraspine defects. The
company said in a statement that it disputes the "representation
of the situation and events" in the Carteret complaint.

In a Dec. 2 letter, CEO Eric Daliere called the Star-Ledger story
"inaccurate" and said that Gilman's emails were "taken out of
context" and "misleading." It has said that 13 of 114 Duraspine
fields in New Jersey have been replaced in recent years using
FieldTurf products.

"Facts matter," Daliere wrote. "In this case, we believe that once
all of the facts are heard and understood, it will be clear that
we have been committed to doing right by our customers."

Carteret seeks class certification, restitution, an injunction and
treble damages for unjust enrichment. It is represented by Michael
DiCicco with Bathgate, Wegener & Wolf, of Lakewood.

The Newark schools seek similar relief in their complaint in Essex
County Court. They are represented by Lance Kalik with Riker
Danzig Schiller Hyland & Perretti in Morristown.

FMS INC: Placeholder Bid for Class Cert. Filed in "Braun"
---------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled as JON BRAUN, Individually and on Behalf of
All Others Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. FMS, INC., the
Defendant, Case No. 2:16-cv-01634-NJ (E.D, Wisc.), the Plaintiff
asks the court to certify a class.

The Plaintiff further asks 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.

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

GLENWOOD SYSTEMS: Placeholder Bid for Class Certification Filed
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled PROGRESSIVE HEALTH AND REHAB CORP., an Ohio
corporation, individually and as the representative of a class of
similarly-situated persons, the Plaintiff, v. GLENWOOD SYSTEMS
LLC, an Ohio limited liability company, and JOHN DOES 1-5, the
Defendants, Case No. 2:16-cv-01153-MHW-EPD (S.D. Ohio), the
Plaintiff filed a "placeholder" motion for class certification of:

   "all persons who (1) on or after four years prior to the
   filing of this action, (2) were sent telephone facsimile
   messages of material advertising the commercial availability
   or quality of any property, goods, or services by or on behalf
   of Defendants, and (3) which Defendants did not have prior
   express permission or invitation, or (4) which did not display
   a proper opt-out notice."

The Plaintiff notes that in the case, Campbell-Ewald Co. v. Gomez,
136 S. Ct. 663, 672 (2016), the Supreme Court held in a class
action under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991
("TCPA") -- like its case -- that "an unaccepted settlement offer
or offer of judgment does not moot a plaintiff's case," and "a
would-be class representative with a live claim of her own must be
accorded a fair opportunity to show that certification is
warranted." The Supreme Court refused to "place the defendant in
the driver's seat" on the issue of class certification by allowing
it to pay a nominal sum to the named plaintiff "to avoid a
potential adverse decision, one that could expose it to damages a
thousand-fold larger than the bid [the plaintiff] declined to
accept."  The Sixth Circuit applied Campbell-Ewald in an
unreported opinion in Family Health Chiropractic, Inc. v. MD On-
Line Sols., Inc., No. 15-3508, 2016 WL 384823, at 1 (6th Cir. Feb.
2, 2016), affirming a denial of a motion to dismiss a putative
TCPA class action based on mootness

The Plaintiff requests the Court allow the "placeholder" motion
for class certification to remain pending to protect against any
alternative pick-off attempt following the Supreme Court's
decision in Campbell-Ewald. The proposed class meets the
requirements of Rules 23(a), (b)(3) and (g). Plaintiff requests
that, following discovery and further briefing, the Court certify
the class, appoint Plaintiff as the class representative, and
appoint Plaintiff's attorneys as class counsel. Plaintiff will
file its memorandum of law in support of its Motion after Rule 23
discovery has been completed. The parties need to meet and confer
and propose a discovery schedule with the Court and Plaintiff
requests a status conference with the Court as soon as practicable
to set a discovery schedule on Plaintiff's Rule 23 Motion.

HOMESITE GROUP: Settlement in "Brown" Suit Has Preliminary OK
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned HARLAN BROWN and DONNA BROWN,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, the
Plaintiffs v. HOMESITE GROUP INCORPORATED d/b/a HOMESITE HOME
INSURANCE, the Defendant, Case No. 4:14-cv-04026-SOH (W.D. Ark.),
the Hon. Susan O. Hickey entered an order granting preliminary
approval of a proposed settlement, granting Plaintiffs' motion for
preliminary class certification, and appointing Plaintiffs Harlan
Brown and Donna Brown as representatives of the settlement class.

The parties' stipulation and proposed settlement are preliminarily
approved as fair, adequate, and reasonable, and Plaintiffs' motion
for preliminary approval of the proposed settlement is granted in
all material respects, subject to further consideration at the
final approval hearing. However, the Court does find that the
stipulation must be amended in certain non-material respects.

The following Settlement Class is conditionally certified for
settlement purposes only:

   "all persons and entities who received actual cash value
   ("ACV") payments, directly or indirectly, from Homesite
   Insurance Company of the Midwest for physical loss or damage
   to their dwelling or other structures, such dwelling or other
   structures located in Arkansas, at any time during the Class
   Period, where the cost of labor was depreciated and never
   subsequently reimbursed by Homesite.

Excluded from the Class are:

   (1) all person and entities who received a replacement cost
       payment from Homesite Insurance Company of the Midwest;

   (2) all persons and entities who received a payment at least
       equal to the applicable policy limits on a total loss
       claim;

   (3) Homesite and its affiliates, officers, and directors;

   (4) Members of the judiciary and their staff to whom this
       action is assigned; and

   (5) Plaintiffs' counsel.

The Court also preliminarily finds that the following attorneys

settlement class:

IC SYSTEM: Placeholder Bid for Class Certification Filed
--------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled as KRYSTEN JOHNSON, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. IC
SYSTEM, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 2:16-cv-01633-NJ (E.D.
Wisc.), Krysten Johnson moves the court to certify a class.

The Plaintiff 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.

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.

ILLINOIS: Faces Class Action Over Healthcare Funding Cut
--------------------------------------------------------
Lisa Klein, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported that a
disabled Chicago-area boy and his mother filed a federal class
action in Chicago, on December 9, in an attempt to continue
getting the public funding they say keeps him alive and at home.

Angela Donegan, mother of Blake Donegan, claims her son "is a
medically fragile disabled person who currently receives funding
from [Illinois Healthcare and Family Services] for approximately
14 hours a day of in-home shift nursing services."

Blake's Niemann-Pick Disease Type C causes him to not be able to
process cholesterol and other lipids properly, and can lead to
spleen and liver damage and neurological symptoms.

"Due to the severity of Blake's medical condition, Blake requires
round the clock care and supervision," according to the complaint,
which was filed in Chicago federal court.

He has developed a form of epilepsy and polycystic kidney disease.
Most children with Niemann-Pick Disease do not live past 20.

Blake just turned 21 this year, but that means the Medicaid money
he gets through the IHFS Nursing and Personal Care Services
program to pay for his $14,000 per month at-home nursing services
is now cut in half.  If he can't stay at his mother's suburban
home, he'll be forced to live at a hospital or other institution
at a cost of $55,000 per month, or worse, according to the
Donegans.

"The reduction in funding will either result in the plaintiff
becoming institutionalized (hospitalized) or if he remains in the
family home without sufficient skilled nursing care, then he faces
a strong possibility of imminent death or a life threatening
episode," the complaint states.

The Donegans claims that cutting funding for disabled people 21
and over violates the Americans with Disabilities Act and the
Rehabilitation Act, both of which bar "unjustifiably segregating
persons with disabilities in institutions."

Their attorney, Robert Farley Jr., says they filed an
administrative appeal that continued Blake's nursing services
until their lawsuit is resolved.  According to the complaint, 411
children were participating in the NPCS program as of April.  The
complaint asks the court to find that IHFS' age policy is
discriminatory and that it must continue full funding for the
disabled person's medical care.

John Hoffman, spokesman for IHFS, told Courthouse News that the
agency will not comment on ongoing litigation.

The case is captioned, Blake Donegan, by and through his mother,
Angela Donegan, individually and on behalf of a class, Plaintiff,
vs. Felicia F. Norwood, in her official capacity as Director of
the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services,
Defendant, Case 1:16-cv-11178 (N.D. Ill., December 8, 2016).

KENTUCKY: Suit Says Teachers Retirement System Underfunded
----------------------------------------------------------
Kevin Koeninger, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported
that a class of current and retired teachers claims Kentucky's
retirement fund for educators is short nearly $25 billion because
the state refuses to fund it.

The lawsuit, filed Nov. 29 in Franklin County Circuit Court,
estimates the class at 146,000 members, and says "prior governors
and the general assembly have consistently failed to adequately
fund the Kentucky Teachers Retirement System," also called KTRS.
Gov. Matt Bevin is named as a defendant, along with Kentucky
Senate President Robert Stivers and Greg Stumbo, speaker for the
Kentucky House of Representatives.

In a phone interview with Courthouse News, Ted Lavit, attorney for
the teachers, said he believes KRTS has "been underfunded for
close to two decades" and that new financial information released
by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board puts the funding
ratio "at below 35.22 percent."

Lavit said the fund will be insolvent within five to seven years.

"I don't know of a state in America -- and we are monitoring all
of them -- that has a lower ratio," the Lebanon, Ky.-based
attorney said.

The teachers, who contribute over 12 percent of each paycheck to
the fund, say the state's conduct violates both the U.S. and
Kentucky Constitutions.  They seek a judgment declaring the state
has violated their due process rights, as well as a writ of
mandamus requiring it to "cure the financial deficiency of KTRS."

Lavit called Bevin's actions related to the pension fund
"insufficient," and said "we have to do something imaginative,
forward-thinking, and creative."

HOMEHEALTH CARE SERVICES LLC, ET AL., the Defendants, Case No.
2:16-cv-00437-JLG-TPK (S.D. Ohio), Jenna Richert moves the Court
to conditionally certify a Fair Labor Standards Act collective
action and order notice sent to members of a class of:

"all current and former home health aides employed by LaBelle
Homehealth Care Services LLC at any point from and after January
1, 2015 who worked overtime hours but were not paid overtime wages
during all or part of their employment."

The Plaintiff further asks that the Court order Defendants to
produce, in electronic format, a list first and last names, last
knows addresses, email addresses, dates of employment, and
location of employment of all persons within the proposed class so
that Plaintiff may effectuate notice to the class members
The Plaintiff also asks the Court to approve the proposed judicial
notice to the class for distribution to members of the proposed
class.

The Defendants have expressed a willingness to agree to
conditional certification of a claim from October 13, 2015 (after
the Final Rule was upheld by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.)
Plaintiff, however, contends the claim is properly measured from
January 1, 2015 (the effective date of the Final Rule.) Plaintiff
anticipates LaBelle's opposition to this Motion will be centered
on, if not limited to, this issue.

MASSACHUSETTS: DHCD Sued in Superior Court Over EA Shelter System
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ROSANNA GARCIA, NAIKIS CEPEDA, MARIA LUISA AMPARO, ANA MONTEROLA,
and SHANICA CHARLES, on behalf of themselves and their families
and other families similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v. THE
MASSACHUSETTS DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT, the
Defendant, Case No. 16-3768D (Mass. Super. Ct., Dec. 9, 2016),
asks the court to compel the Department to place all families who
are or who appear to be eligible immediately and to apply
presumptive eligibility rules to all elements of Emergency
Assistance (EA) eligibility, including Massachusetts residency,
identity and familial relationship, and to not refuse or delay
placement to families who are presumptively or fully eligible
because of concerns about using motel rooms or for any other
reason.

The EA program is a child welfare program designed to keep
children and their families safe.

Over the past several months, the Department has set as a goal to
eliminate the use of motel rooms in the EA shelter system and has
been aggressively pursuing it, often in ways that are inconsistent
with the law.

Based on DHCD's own reports to the Legislature, in the first
quarter of FY 2016 (July through September 2015), there were
approximately 4,504 families in the shelter system, with
approximately 1,256 residing in motels. In the first quarter of FY
2017 (July through September 2016), the total number of families
was approximately 3,751, with only 268 families in motels. Hence,
the decline of the number of families in motels is greater than
the decline in the total number of families in shelter. As of
December 6, 2016, there were only 175 families
reported by DHCD as being in motels.

MERCEDES-BENZ: Judge Nixed "Lynevych" Suit Over Defeat Devices
--------------------------------------------------------------
Nick Rummell, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported that a
federal judge in Newark, N.J., on December 6 dismissed without
prejudice a class-action that claims Mercedes-Benz misled
consumers about its "clean diesel" vehicles.

U.S. District Judge Jose Linares found the plaintiffs did not
prove they were lured into buying the vehicles.

The February lawsuit resembled a bevy of class actions against
Volkswagen, for its "defeat devices" that masked the environmental
impact of its engines.  In the complaint, lead plaintiff Ulyana
Lynevych claimed the luxury carmaker marketed its BlueTEC line of
"clean diesel" vehicles as environmentally friendly, but that
emissions controls shut down in cooler temperatures, making them
in some cases dirtier than gasoline-running vehicles.

Mercedes-Benz filed a motion for dismissal in July, saying the
plaintiffs failed to prove the cars were defective or that they
had relied on its ads to purchase the cars.

Linares agreed in his Dec. 6 ruling that the plaintiffs had failed
to show they had seen and relied on misleading ads and the
Mercedes website to purchase the vehicles.

"While the court agrees with plaintiffs that they do not need to
point to specific advertisements that they relied upon,
plaintiffs' vague reference to 'advertisements and
representations' is insufficient to prove reliance (or
'causation') on any alleged misrepresentations," Linares wrote.

Mercedes claimed its engines converted nitrogen oxide emissions
into harmless nitrogen and oxygen, making it at the time among the
lowest CO2-emitting luxury vehicles on the market.

Mercedes marketed its BlueTEC diesel engine as "the world's
cleanest and most advanced diesel," with ultra-low emissions and
high fuel economy.  But Mercedes programmed the BlueTEC vehicles
to turn off the nitrogen-reducing systems when ambient
temperatures dropped below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, the class
claimed.

In her original complaint, Lynevych claimed Mercedes had
programmed shutoff devices in its clean diesel engines to disguise
pollution levels "more than 65 times higher" than permitted by
law.  Road tests showed that the vehicles "emit dangerous oxides
of nitrogen at a level at a level more than 65 times higher than
the United States Environmental Protection Agency permits," the
lawsuit states.

Mercedes claimed the plaintiffs relied primarily on road tests of
European models, which have different emissions standards and
different engines.

Linares did not rule on the potential difference between European
models and those sold in the United States.

Mercedes-Benz USA disclosed in April that the Department of
Justice had told it to review its diesel emission certification
program. The company has said it is complying with authorities and
that the class-action lawsuit is without merit.

Plaintiffs' attorney James Cecchi, with Carella Byrne Cecchi
Olstein Brody & Agenello in Roseland, N.J., said his clients will
file an amended complaint to address the court's limited pleading
concerns.

"We look forward to presenting our case to the fact-finder in
court," Cecchi wrote in an e-mail.

Volkswagen was deluged with more than 100 class actions and
billions of dollars in fines on similar claims: that it programmed
"clean diesel" engines to turn off emissions controls when
vehicles were not being tested.

Volkswagen admitted in September 2015 that 11 million diesel autos
worldwide had the cheating software installed. At least 600,000 of
them were sold in the United States. Volkswagen subsidiary Audi
has been accused of the same thing.

The case is captioned, IN RE MERCEDES-BENZ EMISSIONS LITIGATION,
Civil Action No. 16-881 (JLL)(JAD)(D.N.J.).

MIDLAND CREDIT: "Pierre" Suit Seeks Certification of FLSA Class
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit entitled RENETRICE R. PIERRE, individually and on
behalf of others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. MIDLAND
CREDIT MANAGEMENT, INC., a Kansas corporation, the Defendant, Case
No. 1:16-cv-02895 (N.D. Ill.), the Plaintiff asks the Court to
certify a class of:

   "all persons with Illinois addresses to whom Midland Credit
   Management, Inc. sent, from March 7, 2015 through March 7,
   2016, a letter containing the following statement: "The law
   limits how long you can be sued on a debt. Because of the age
   of your debt, we will not sue you for it, we will not report
   it to any credit reporting agency, and payment or non-payment
   will not affect your credit score."

The Plaintiff further asks the Court to appoint Plaintiff class
representative and appoint Paul F. Markoff and Karl G. Leinberger
of Markoff Leinberger LLC as class counsel.

The Plaintiff's class claim is based on Defendant's alleged
failures to comply with various requirements under the Fair Debt
Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).

The Plaintiff said, "Because the FDCPA claim at issue arises from
Defendant's standardized and automated conduct in attempting to
collect time-barred debt, this Court should certify Plaintiff's
proposed class."

PUBLIX SUPER: "Rudder" Suit Consolidated in MDL 2705
----------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Erin Rudder Individually and on
Behalf of AII Others Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. Publix
Super Markets, Inc., the Defendant, Case No. 9:16-cv-81777, was
transferred from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District
of Florida, to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District
of Illinois (Chicago). The Northern District Court Clerk assigned
Case No. 1:16-cv-11272 to the proceeding.

Publix is an employee-owned, American supermarket chain based in
Lakeland, Florida.

The Rudder case is being consolidated with MDL 2705 in re: 100%
Grated Parmesan Cheese Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation.
The MDL was created by Order of the United States Judicial Panel
on Multidistrict Litigation on May 2, 2016.

Before the Panel are three dockets involving allegations that the
labeling and marketing of certain parmesan cheese products as
"100%" grated parmesan cheese is false and misleading because the
products allegedly contain filler -- mainly, a food additive known
as cellulose. The litigation stems from a news article published
in February 2016, allegedly reporting that independent laboratory
testing or other sources established the presence of significant
amounts of cellulose in several brands, including Kraft 100%
Grated Parmesan Cheese, Wal-Mart Great Value 100% Grated Parmesan
Cheese, Target Market Pantry Parmesan 100% Grated Cheese, and
Essential Everyday 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese (allegedly, a
product of SuperValu and Albertsons).

In MDL No. 2705, plaintiffs in eight actions move to centralize
all actions involving the alleged mislabeling of any 100% grated
parmesan cheese product in the Eastern District of Missouri. They
request that the MDL encompass the actions in their initial motion
concerning Kraft and Wal-Mart, as well as potential tag-along
actions involving Target, SuperValu, Albertsons, and the ICCO-
Cheese Company.

In its May 2, 2016 Order, the MDL Panel persuaded that the
Northern District of Illinois is the appropriate transferee
district for this litigation. This district provides a convenient
and accessible forum for actions filed throughout the country
regarding products sold nationwide. Defendant Kraft and plaintiffs
in ten actions support this district, where a significant number
of actions are pending. Kraft represents that its relevant
headquarters office is located in this district, and that the
majority of its documents and witnesses are located there. This
district also is centrally located relative to defendant Wal-Mart,
which has its headquarters in Arkansas, the defendants in the
potential tag-along actions, and the geographically dispersed
plaintiffs.

Presiding Judge in the MDL is Hon. Gary Feinerman, United States
District Judge. The lead case is 1:16-cv-05802.

The Plaintiff is represented by:

          Richard J. Lantinberg, Esq.

PUBLIX SUPER: "Tamayo" Suit Consolidated in MDL 2705
----------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Eric Tamayo, individually and on
behalf of all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. Publix
Super Markets, Inc., the Defendant, Case No. 6:16-cv-01646, was
transferred from the U.S. District Court for the Middle,
District of Florida, to the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of Illinois (Chicago). The Northern District Court Clerk
assigned Case No. 1:16-cv-11269 to the proceeding.

Publix is an employee-owned, American supermarket chain based in
Lakeland, Florida.

The Tamayo case is being consolidated with MDL 2705 in re: 100%

RENUE SYSTEMS: Class Certification Hearing Continued to Jan. 11
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled Gorss Motels, Inc., the Plaintiff, v. Renue
Systems Development Corp., Inc., et al., the Defendant, Case No.
1:16-cv-10975 (N.D. Ill.), the Hon. Ronald A. Guzman entered an
order to continue hearing on Plaintiff's motion to certify class
to Jan. 11, 2017 at 9:30 AM.

According to the docket entry made by the Clerk on December 7,
2016, a motion hearing set for Dec. 13, 2016, was stricken and no
appearance was required.


RHODE ISLAND: Faces Class Action Over Food Stamps Delay
-------------------------------------------------------
Courthouse News Service reported that Rhode Island doesn't process
applications for food stamps and other public-assistance benefits
within the time required by federal law and doesn't expect to
clear its backlog for at least another six months, according to a
federal class action in Providence, R.I., filed on December 9.

The case is captioned, HELEN GEMMELL, and MEA MARTINEZ,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated,
Plaintiffs, v. MELBA DEPENA AFFIGNE, in her official capacity as
Director of the Rhode Island Department of Human Services,
Defendant, Case 1:16-cv-00650-S-LDA (D.R.I.).


SOUTHWEST CREDIT: Placeholder Bid for Class Certification Filed
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned as DWAYNE ANDERSON and KRISTEN HASSAN,
Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated, the
Plaintiffs, v. SOUTHWEST CREDIT SYSTEMS, L.P., the Defendant, Case
No. 2:16-cv-01636-JPS (E.D. Wisc.), Dwayne Anderson and Kristen
Hassan move the court to certify a class

The Plaintiffs further ask that the Court both stay the motion for
class certification and to grant Plaintiffs (and Defendant) relief
from the Local Rules setting automatic briefing schedules and
requiring briefs and supporting material to be filed with the
motion.

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

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

SPRINT CORPORATION: Rubio Seeks Unpaid Wages Under Labor Code
-------------------------------------------------------------
SAMUEL RUBIO, individually and on behalf of all other similarly

Plaintiff, v. SPRINT CORPORATION, a SPRINT COMMUNICATIONS COMPANY,
L.P., a Delaware Corporation; SPRINT/UNITED MANAGEMENT CO., a

pursuant to Labor Code.

The Defendants have a consistent policy of failing to pay all
wages, due at their termination of employment to Plaintiff and
other similarly situated employees ("Class Members") in violation
of California state wage and hour laws by their uniform policy of
cutting, termination checks out of state and mailing them out to
the employees rather than presenting them upon the termination
date.

Sprint Corporation, commonly referred to as Sprint, is an American
telecommunications holding company that provides wireless services
and is a major global Internet carrier.

STRATEGY ANESTHESIA: Placeholder Bid for Class Cert. Filed
----------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned PROGRESSIVE HEALTH AND REHAB CORP., an
Ohio corporation, individually and as the representative of a
class of similarly-situated persons, the Plaintiff, v. STRATEGY
ANESTHESIA, LLC, a Maryland limited liability company, and
JOHN DOES 1-5, the Defendants, Case No. 2:16-cv-01151-EAS-KAJ
(S.D. Ohio), the Plaintiff files a "placeholder" motion for class
certification in order to prevent against a "buy-off" attempt, a
tactic class-action defendants sometimes use to attempt to prevent
a case from proceeding to a decision on class certification by
attempting to "moot" the named plaintiff's claims by tendering the
plaintiff individual (but not classwide) relief.

According to the Plaintiff, in the case Campbell-Ewald Co. v.
Gomez, 136 S. Ct. 663, 672 (2016), the Supreme Court held in a
class action under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991
("TCPA"), like this case, that "an unaccepted settlement offer or
offer of judgment does not moot a plaintiff's case," and "a would-
be class representative with a live claim of her own must be
accorded a fair opportunity to show that certification is
warranted." The Supreme Court refused to "place the defendant in
the driver's seat" on the issue of class certification by allowing
it to pay a nominal sum to the named plaintiff "to avoid a
potential adverse decision, one that could expose it to damages a
thousand-fold larger than the bid [the plaintiff] declined to
accept."  The Sixth Circuit applied Campbell-Ewald in an
unreported opinion in Family Health Chiropractic, Inc. v. MD On-
Line Sols., Inc., No. 15-3508, 2016 WL 384823, at 1 (6th Cir. Feb.
2, 2016), affirming a denial of a motion to dismiss a putative
TCPA class action based on mootness.

The Plaintiff requests the Court allow the "placeholder" motion
for class certification to remain pending to protect against any
alternative pick-off attempt following the Supreme Court's
decision in Campbell-Ewald. The proposed class meets the
requirements of Rules 23(a), (b)(3) and (g). Plaintiff requests
that, following discovery and further briefing, the Court certify
the class, appoint Plaintiff as the class representative, and
appoint Plaintiff's attorneys as class counsel. Plaintiff will
file its memorandum of law in support of its Motion after Rule 23
discovery has been completed. The parties need to meet and confer
and propose a discovery schedule with the Court and Plaintiff
requests a status conference with the Court as soon as practicable
to set a discovery schedule on Plaintiff's Rule 23 Motion.

SYGENTA AG: "Hirsch" Suit Consolidated in MDL 2591
--------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Dale Hirsch, on behalf of himself
and all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. Sygenta AG;
Syngenta Crop Protection AG; Sygenta Corporation; Sygenta Crop
Protection, LLC; and Sygenta Seeds, Inc., the Defendant, Case No.
1:16-cv-00163, was transferred from the U.S. District Court for
the District of Montana, to the U.S. District Court for the
District of Kansas (Kansas City). The Kansas District Court Clerk
assigned Case No. 2:16-cv-02811-JWL-JPO to the proceeding.

The Hirsch case is being consolidated with MDL 2591 in re:
Syngenta AG Mir162 Corn Litigation. The MDL was created by Order
of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on
December 11, 2014. These cases concern the Syngenta defendants'
decision to commercialize corn seeds containing a genetically
modified trait, known as "MIR162" that reportedly controls certain
insects. Corn with this trait has entered U.S. corn stocks but has
not been approved for import by the Chinese government, which has
imposed a complete ban on U.S. corn with this trait. In its
December 11, 2014 Order, the MDL Panel found that it involve
common questions of fact, and that centralization in the District
of Kansas will serve the convenience of the parties and witnesses
and promote the just and efficient conduct of the litigation.
Presiding Judge in the MDL is Hon. John W. Lungstrum, United
States District Judge. The lead case is 2:14-md-02591-JWL-JPO.

TWITTER INC: Court Mulls Dismissal of "Parker" Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------
Helen Christophi, writing for Courthouse News Service, reported
that telling an attorney for Twitter, "I don't see how you can
even make that argument with a straight face," a federal judge in
San Francisco, heard arguments on December 8 in a class action
accusing the company of colluding with a defunct app-maker to
misappropriate people's online identities.

U.S. District Judge William Alsup made the comment in response to
a Twitter attorney's argument that the lead plaintiff's right-of-
publicity claim violates the First Amendment by seeking to curb
app users' activities with each other's profiles.  Alsup
nonetheless indicated that he might dismiss, with leave to amend.

Alsup told a Twitter attorney: "You're probably right under the
standing point and wrong on everything else."

Lead plaintiff Jason Parker sued Twitter and Hey Inc., maker of
the app "Famous: The Celebrity Twitter," in August, claiming both
companies violated Alabama's Right of Publicity Act, which
prohibits unauthorized use of a person's name and likeness in
commercial products.

Although Parker sued for a class of Alabama residents, he filed in
San Francisco because both tech companies are based in California.

Twitter agreed in June 2015 to allow Hey to import its users'
profile data into its gaming app, including names and photos.

Originally called "Stolen," the game "encouraged players to 'buy,'
'own' and even 'steal' real-life people by using virtual
currency," Parker said in his complaint.

The app disappeared in January after U.S. Rep. Katherine Clark, D-
Mass., wrote to Twitter's CEO, urging him to suspend Hey's access
until nonconsenting profiles were removed and safeguards put in
place.  Less than a month later, the app re-emerged as "Famous."
Rather than urging players to buy and sell profiles, "Famous" had
users "invest in" people's profiles with "hearts" instead of with
virtual currency.

Parker says he joined Twitter in May 2008 and discovered in July
this year that his profile, name and photo were uploaded to the
app and displayed for players to collect with virtual currency.

Hey shut down in October, after discontinuing "Famous" in
September, according to Twitter's dismissal motion.

Parker's attorney Alexander Tievsky said Hey has not yet presented
itself in the case.

At oral argument December 8, Alsup assailed Twitter's argument
that Parker's right-of-publicity claim violates the First
Amendment by seeking to curb users' activities with each other's
profiles.

"I don't see how you can even make that argument with a straight
face," Alsup told Twitter attorney Matthew Brown.

Brown replied: "Twitter has the First Amendment right to
disseminate the information."

Alsup took issue with that, likening it to criminals stealing and
sharing Social Security numbers.

"I can't believe the First Amendment allows that kind of criminal
conduct," Alsup said. "You're telling me that's protected by the
First Amendment? No way. You're disclosing their personas."

Brown replied: "Name and profile picture, to be precise. That's
distinct." He said Twitter users voluntarily provide that
information to the online network.

Parker's attorney Tievsky said the Constitution does not protect
Twitter in this case.

"The point here is, in the use of my client's name and likeness,
there is no creative expression, there is a mere taking of
information and putting it in another place and another context,
and that's what becomes problematic," Tievsky said. "We're not
talking about the kind of expressive work we recognize for First
Amendment protection."

Also on December 8, Alsup asked both sides to clarify their
arguments on consent.

Twitter contends that Parker consented to Twitter's disclosure of
his information to Hey when he agreed to Twitter's terms of
service and privacy policies, which state that information
submitted to Twitter is public and can be viewed by third-party
websites.

In a motion in opposition, however, Parker's attorneys said the
terms and conditions require Hey to get users' consent before
using their information, which it never did.

Alsup expressed frustration with the arguments, suggesting a need
for experts versed in consent.

"I'm supposed to resolve this on a motion to dismiss?" he asked.

Brown is with Cooley LLP in San Francisco, Tievsky with Edelson PC
in Chicago.

Given Alsup's indication that he lacked standing, Parker
voluntarily dismissed his lawsuit on December 9, and said he
intends to pursue the matter in state court.

(C.D. Cal.), the Plaintiff will move the Court on February 13,

   Company whose requests for lumbar artificial disc replacement

   "de novo" review by the district court (the "De Novo Standard"

   "all persons covered under UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company

USA RX: MD Medical, et al. Seek Certification of 3 Classes
----------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled MD MEDICAL, LLC and MICHELLE DEES, M.D.,
Individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, the
Plaintiffs, v. USA RX LLC, and JOHN DOES 1-10, the Defendants,
Case No. 1:16-cv-11154 (N.D. Ill.), the Plaintiffs ask the Court
for certification of three classes:

TCPA Class (Count I):

   "(1) all persons, (2) who, on or after a date four years prior
   to the filing of this action (28 U.S.C Sec. 1658) were sent
   faxes by or on behalf of Defendant, USA RX, promoting its goods
   or services for sale, and (3) with respect to whom defendant
   cannot provide evidence of express consent or an established
   business relationship prior to the faxing";

ICFA Class (Count II):

   "all persons and entities with Illinois fax numbers, (2) who,
   on or after a date three years prior to the filing of this
   action were sent faxes by or on behalf of Defendant, USA RX,
   promoting its goods or services for sale, and (3) with respect
   to whom Defendant cannot provide evidence of express consent
   or an established business relationship prior to the faxing;
   and

Illinois Common Law Class (Count III, Conversion; Count IV,

   "(1) all persons and entities with Illinois fax numbers who,

WALT DISNEY: Employee Class Suit Alleges Race Discrimination
------------------------------------------------------------
Aimee Sachs, writing for Courthouse News Service reported that a
class of former Disney employees says race was the reason they
were fired in 2014 and replaced by workers from India.

In a lawsuit filed in the federal court in Orlando, Florida on
December 12, the former Walt Disney Parks and Resorts employees
claim that in October 2014 they were told their employment would
be terminated effective January 2015.

All of the employees worked in the administrative offices of the
company, and in all, about 250 lost their jobs.

"Defendant terminated the employment of plaintiffs based solely on
their national origin and race, replacing them with Indian
nationals," the lawsuit states.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs were forced to train
their replacements and experienced discriminatory treatment.

"During the training period, defendant created a hostile work
environment by treating plaintiffs differently than before," the
complaint says. "Specifically, defendant was now being curt and
unprofessional toward plaintiffs but treating the foreign
replacements with special treatment."

"Defendant knew or should have known of the disparate treatment
suffered by plaintiffs and failed to intervene or to take prompt
and effective remedial action in response," the lawsuit claims.

In addition to the disparate treatment, class members say they
were denied other positions Disney had posted even though they
were qualified.

The complaint says Disney's actions also violated the Older
Workers Benefit Protection Act as well as the Age Discrimination
in Employment Act.  The plaintiffs are seeking injunctive relief,
compensation for lost wages and reinstatement to positions similar
to their previous jobs.

The case is captioned, Leonardo Perrero, et al., V. Walt Disney
Parks and Resorts U.S. Inc. Defendant, Case No. Case 6:16-cv-
02144-ACC-TBS (M.D. Fla.).  The case was filed on December 12,

XEROX EDUCATIONAL: Steil Files Placeholder Bid to Certify Class
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned Linda Steil, individually and on behalf
of all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. Xerox
Educational Services, LLC, d/b/a ACS Educational Services, a
Delaware limited liability company, the Defendant, Case No. 3:16-
cv-03300-RM-TSH (C.D. Ill.), Ms. Linda Steil moves the Court to
certify a class.

The Plaintiff further requests that briefing on her Motion be
stayed pending discovery as to class issues, such as net worth and
numerosity.  Plaintiff said she is filing this motion now to avoid
an individual "buy-off" settlement payment to Ms. Steil only,
which could potentially wipe out the Class' claims.

Her lawyer explains that although the United States Supreme
Court's recent ruling in Campbell-Ewald Company v. Gomez, 136 S.
Ct. 663; 2016 U.S.LEXIS 846 (January 20, 2016) held that an
unaccepted settlement offer or offer of judgment does not moot a
plaintiff's case", it specifically declined to decide
whether the result would be different if a defendant deposited the
full amount of the plaintiff's individual claim in an account
payable to the plaintiff and the Court then entered judgment for

YAHOO INC: "Myers" Case Consolidated in MDL 2752
------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Jennifer J. Myers, Paul Dugas,
Danielle Beck, Leah Cassell, Pooja Garg, Rajesh Garg, Ashish
Gupta, Daniel Margo, Ann Marie Osborne Susan Park, and Amar Patel,
on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, the
Plaintiffs, v, Yahoo Inc. a Delaware corporation, Defendant, Case
No. 3:16-cv-02391, was transferred from the U.S. District Court
for the Southern District of California, to the U.S. District
Court for the Northern District of California (San Jose). The
Northern District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 5:16-cv-07030-LHK
to the proceeding.

The Myers case is being consolidated with MDL 2752 re: Yahoo Inc.
Customer Data Security Breach Litigation. The MDL was created by
Order of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict
Litigation on December 7, 2016. These putative class actions share
complex factual questions arising from Yahoo's announcement on
September 22, 2016, that a data security breach of its network
occurred in late 2014 in which the personal account information of
at least 500 million Yahoo users was stolen. Common factual
questions are presented with respect to Yahoo's practices in
safeguarding its users' personal information, the investigation
into the breach, the alleged delay in disclosing the breach, and
the nature of the alleged damages. In its December 7, 2016 Order,
the MDL Panel found that centralization will eliminate duplicative
discovery; prevent inconsistent pretrial rulings, including with
respect to class certification; and conserve the resources of the
parties, their counsel, and the judiciary. The presiding Judges in
the MDL is Hon. Lucy H. Koh, United States District Judge. The
lead case is 5:16-md-02752-LHK.

Yahoo is an American multinational technology company
headquartered in Sunnyvale, California. Yahoo was founded by Jerry
Yang and David Filo in January 1994 and was incorporated on March
2, 1995.
