dated December 30, 2016.  Chief Judge Patti B. Saris is assigned
to case.

The suit alleges that 1) the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary,
Arriva Medical LLC, was submitting claims to Medicare for deceased
patients; (2) the foregoing conduct subjected Arriva to revocation
of its Medicare enrollment; and (3) as a result, Defendants'
statements about Alere's business, operations, and prospects, were
false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.  As a
result, the Defendant(s) violated the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Act.

No class has been certified in the above action. Until a class is
certified, you are not considered represented by an attorney. You
may also choose to do nothing and be an absent class member.

According to the Complaint, Alere made false and misleading
statements and/or failed to disclose: that the Company's wholly-
owned subsidiary, Arriva Medical, LLC ("Arriva"), was submitting
claims to Medicare for deceased patients; that this conduct
subjected Arriva to revocation of its Medicare enrollment; and
that as a result of the above, Alere's statements about its
business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading
and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On November 4, 2016, Alere announced that the Centers for Medicare
and Medicaid Services alleged that Arriva submitted claims for 211
deceased patients over a five-year period, and thus revoked
Arriva's Medicare enrollment. When the above was disclosed to the
public, the value of Alere dropped, causing investors harm.

misleading at all relevant times. On November 8, 2016, Arrowhead
revealed that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration would be placing
a clinical hold on its Heparc-2004 clinical study of ARC-520,
likely due to deaths at the highest dose of an ongoing non-human
primate toxicology study. When this information was disclosed to
the public, shares of Arrowhead declined in value, causing
investors serious harm.

ATLANTIC LOTTERY: To Appeal VLT Class-Action Certification
----------------------------------------------------------
Vocm.com reports that Atlantic Lottery has released a statement
regarding the class action lawsuit Babstock and Small v. ALC.

Atlantic Lottery says recent media reports have questioned the
integrity of its games. There have been accusations that it is
next to impossible to win on VLTs.

ALC says the outcomes on VLTs are determined randomly the moment
you initiate the game.

The statement goes on to say manufacturers must meet industry
standards and testing is carried out by independent laboratories
before terminals are put into use.

ALC will appeal the class-action certification, and denies any
basis for claims brought forward by plaintiffs.

Finally, ALC's lawyer says there has been media attention on an
English statute from 1710, that players have the right to recover
money paid to play video lottery. ALC calls the allegation
'groundless.'

CHEMICAL FINANCIAL: Still Defending Talmer Shareholder Litigation
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Chemical Financial Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2016,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the
Company continues to defend against the case, In re Talmer Bancorp
Shareholder Litigation.

On February 22, 2016, two putative class action and derivative
complaints were filed in the Circuit Court for Oakland County,
Michigan by individuals purporting to be a shareholder of Talmer.
The actions are styled Regina Gertel Lee v. Chemical Financial
Corporation, et al., Case No. 2016-151642-CB and City of Livonia
Employees' Retirement System v. Chemical Financial Corporation et
al., Case No. 2016-151641-CB.

These complaints purport to be brought derivatively on behalf of
Talmer against the individual defendants, and individually and on
behalf of all others similarly situated against Talmer and
Chemical. The complaints allege, among other things, that the
directors of Talmer breached their fiduciary duties to Talmer's
shareholders in connection with the merger by approving a
transaction pursuant to an allegedly inadequate process that
undervalues Talmer and includes preclusive deal protection
provisions, and that Chemical allegedly aided and abetted the
Talmer directors in breaching their duties to Talmer's
shareholders. The complaints also allege that the individual
defendants have been unjustly enriched. Both complaints seek
various remedies on behalf of the putative class (consisting of
all shareholders of Talmer who are not related to or affiliated
with any defendant). They request, among other things, that the
Court enjoin the merger from being consummated in accordance with
its agreed-upon terms, direct the Talmer directors to exercise
their fiduciary duties, rescind the merger agreement to the extent
that it is already implemented, award the plaintiff all costs and
disbursements in each respective action (including reasonable
attorneys' and experts' fees), and grant such further relief as
the court deems just and proper.

The City of Livonia plaintiff amended its complaint on April 21,
2016 to add additional factual allegations, including but not
limited to allegations that Keefe Bruyette & Woods, Inc. ("KBW")
served as a financial advisor for the proposed merger despite an
alleged conflict of interest, that Talmer's board acted under
actual or potential conflicts of interest, and that the defendants
omitted and/or misrepresented material information about the
proposed merger in the Form S-4 Registration Statement relating to
the proposed merger.

These two cases were consolidated as In re Talmer Bancorp
Shareholder Litigation, case number 2016-151641-CB, per an order
entered on May 12, 2016. On October 31, 2016, the plaintiffs in
this consolidated action again amended their complaint, adding
additional factual allegations, adding KBW as a defendant, and
asserting that KBW acted in concert with Chemical to aid and abet
breaches of fiduciary duty by Talmer's directors.

Talmer, Chemical, KBW and the individual defendants all believe
that the claims asserted against each of them in the consolidated
action are without merit and intend to vigorously defend against
these consolidated lawsuits.


CHEMICAL FINANCIAL: Bushansky, Sciabacucchi & Nicholl Suits Nixed
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Chemical Financial Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2016,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that four class
action lawsuits filed by shareholders of Talmer Bancorp have been
dismissed.

On March 22, 2016, a putative class action and derivative
complaint was filed in the Circuit Court for Oakland County,
Michigan, by an individual purporting to be a shareholder of
Talmer, styled Stephen Bushansky v. Gary Torgow et al. Case No.
2016-152112-CB. This action contained similar allegations, claims,
and requests for relief as the complaints filed in the Lee and
City of Livonia lawsuits. The Bushansky lawsuit was voluntarily
dismissed by the plaintiff as to all defendants, without
prejudice, on April 18, 2016.

On April 27, 2016, Stephen Bushansky filed a new putative class
action complaint in the United State District Court for Eastern
District of Michigan, styled Stephen Bushansky v. Talmer Bancorp
In. et.al., Docket No. 1:16-cv-11511. This lawsuit alleged
violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934, and named Talmer, Chemical, and several individuals
as defendants. The complaint alleged, among other things, that the
Defendants issued materially incomplete and misleading disclosures
in the preliminary Form S-4 Registration Statement relating to the
proposed merger. The Federal Bushansky lawsuit was voluntarily
dismissed by the plaintiff as to all defendants, without
prejudice, on June 20, 2016.

On April 6, 2016, a complaint was filed in the United States
District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan by another
purported shareholder of Talmer, styled Matthew Sciabacucchi v.
Chemical Financial Corporation et al., Docket No. 1:16-cv-11261.
Mr. Sciabacucchi purports to bring this action "on behalf of
himself and all others similarly situated." This lawsuit alleges
violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934, naming Talmer, Chemical, and several individuals as
defendants.  The complaint alleges, among other things, that the
Defendants issued materially incomplete and misleading disclosures
in the Form S-4 Registration Statement relating to the proposed
merger. The Complaint contains requests for relief that include,
among other things, that the Court enjoin the proposed
transaction, rescind the transaction if it is consummated or award
rescissory damages, order the Talmer directors to file a revised
Registration Statement, declare that the Defendants violated
Sections 14(a) and/or Section 20(a) of the Securities Exchange
Act, as well as Rule 14a-9 promulgated thereunder, award the
plaintiff all costs associated with bringing the action (including
reasonable attorneys' and experts' fees), and grant such further
relief as the court deems just and proper. Talmer, Chemical and
the individual defendants all believe that the claims asserted
against each of them in this lawsuit are without merit and intend
to vigorously defend against this lawsuit. The Sciabacucchi
lawsuit was voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiff as to all
defendants, without prejudice, on August 5, 2016.

On April 25, 2016, a complaint was filed in the United States
District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan by another
purported shareholder of Talmer, styled Kevin Nicholl v. Chemical
Financial Corporation et al., Docket No. 1:16-cv-11482. The
plaintiff names Talmer, Chemical, and several individuals as
defendants. This lawsuit was styled as a class action and
derivative action, and alleged breach of fiduciary duties as well
as violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934. The Nicholl lawsuit was voluntarily
dismissed by the plaintiff as to all defendants, with prejudice,
on June 20, 2016.


CHEMICAL FINANCIAL: Livonia Employees Suit Remains Stayed
---------------------------------------------------------
Chemical Financial Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2016,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the case,
City of Livonia Employees' Retirement System v. Chemical Financial
Corporation, et al., remains stayed.

On June 16, 2016, a complaint was filed in the United States
District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan by a purported
Talmer shareholder, styled City of Livonia Employees' Retirement
System v. Chemical Financial Corporation, et al., Docket No. 1:16-
cv-12229. The plaintiff purports to bring the action "individually
and on behalf of all others similarly situated," and requests
certification as a class action. This lawsuit alleges violations
of Section 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The Complaint alleges, among other things, that the Defendants
issued materially incomplete and misleading disclosures in the
Form S-4 Registration Statement relating to the proposed merger.
The Complaint contains requests for relief that include, among
other things, that the Court enjoin the proposed transaction
unless and until additional information is provided to Talmer's
shareholders, declare that the Defendants violated the securities
laws in connection with the proposed merger, award compensatory
damages, interest, attorneys' and experts' fees, and that the
Court grant such other relief as it deems just and proper. Talmer,
Chemical, and the individual defendants all believe that the
claims asserted against each of them in this lawsuit are without
merit and intend to vigorously defend against this lawsuit.

On October 18, 2016, the Court entered a stipulated order staying
this action until the Oakland County Circuit Court issues rulings
on motions to dismiss that the defendants anticipate filing in In
re Talmer Bancorp Shareholder Litigation, case number 2016-151641-
CB.

CVB FINANCIAL: Parties in Shareholder Suit Reached MOU
------------------------------------------------------
CVB Financial Corp. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the parties in a
shareholder class action lawsuit have signed a memorandum of
understanding that would resolve this case.

The Company said, "A purported shareholder class action complaint
was filed against the Company on August 23, 2010, in an action
captioned Lloyd v. CVB Financial Corp., et al., Case No. CV 10-
06256- MMM, in the United States District Court for the Central
District of California. Along with the Company, Christopher D.
Myers (our President and Chief Executive Officer) and Edward J.
Biebrich, Jr. (our former Chief Financial Officer) were also named
as defendants."

"On September 14, 2010, a second purported shareholder class
action complaint was filed against the Company, in an action
originally captioned Englund v. CVB Financial Corp., et al., Case
No. CV 10-06815-RGK, in the United States District Court for the
Central District of California. The Englund complaint named the
same defendants as the Lloyd complaint and made allegations
substantially similar to those included in the Lloyd complaint. On
January 21, 2011, the District Court consolidated the two actions
for all purposes under the Lloyd action, now captioned as Case No.
CV 10-06256-MMM (PJWx). At the same time, the District Court also
appointed the Jacksonville Police and Fire Pension Fund (the
"Jacksonville Fund") as lead plaintiff in the consolidated action
and approved the Jacksonville Fund's selection of lead counsel for
the plaintiffs in the consolidated action.

"On March 7, 2011, the Jacksonville Fund filed a consolidated
complaint naming the same defendants and alleging violations by
all defendants of Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder and violations by the
individual defendants of Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act. The
consolidated complaint alleges that defendants, among other
things, misrepresented and failed to disclose conditions adversely
affecting the Company throughout the purported class period, which
was originally alleged to be between October 21, 2009 and August
9, 2010 (but which has subsequently been shortened to the period
between March 4, 2010 and August 9, 2010). Specifically,
defendants are alleged to have violated applicable accounting
rules and to have made misrepresentations in connection with the
Company's allowance for loan loss methodology, loan underwriting
guidelines, methodology for grading loans, and the process for
making provisions for loan losses. The consolidated complaint
sought compensatory damages and other relief in favor of the
purported class.

"Following the filing by each side of various motions and briefs,
and a hearing on August 29, 2011, the District Court issued a
ruling on January 12, 2012, granting defendants' motion to dismiss
the consolidated complaint, but the ruling provided the plaintiffs
with leave to file an amended complaint within 45 days of the date
of the order. On February 27, 2012, the plaintiffs filed a first
amended complaint against the same defendants, and, following
filings by both sides and another hearing on June 4, 2012, the
District Court issued a ruling on August 21, 2012, granting
defendants' motion to dismiss the first amended complaint, but
providing the plaintiffs with leave to file another amended
complaint within 30 days of this ruling. On September 20, 2012,
the plaintiffs filed a second amended complaint against the same
defendants, the Company filed its third motion to dismiss on
October 25, 2012, and following another hearing on February 25,
2013, the District Court issued an order dismissing the
plaintiffs' complaint for the third time on May 9, 2013, which
became a final, appealable order on September 30, 2013.

"On October 24, 2013, the plaintiffs filed a notice of appeal of
the District Court's final order of dismissal with the U.S. Court
of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Following the filing of
appellate briefs by the respective parties, the Court of Appeals
conducted a hearing and oral argument in the case on December 10,
2015. On February 1, 2016, the Court of Appeals issued its
decision in the case. The Ninth Circuit opinion affirmed the
district court's decision in part, reversed it in part and
remanded the case for further proceedings in the District Court.

"On September 28, 2016, the parties signed a memorandum of
understanding that would resolve this case. The resolution is
subject to final court approval, but it would be funded solely
with insurance proceeds, and would involve no admission of
liability whatsoever.


CVB FINANCIAL: "Morgan" Class Suit in Discovery
-----------------------------------------------
CVB Financial Corp. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the parties in the
class action lawsuit by Glenda Morgan are engaged in discovery.

A former employee and branch-based service manager filed a
complaint against the Company, on December 29, 2014, in an action
entitled Glenda Morgan v. Citizens Business Bank, et al., Case No.
BC568004, in the Superior Court for Los Angeles County,
individually and on behalf of the Company's branch-based employees
and managers who are classified as "exempt" under California and
federal employment laws. The case is styled as a putative class
action lawsuit and alleges, among other things, that (i) the
Company misclassified certain employees and managers as "exempt"
employees, (ii) the Company violated California's wage and hour,
overtime, meal break and rest break rules and regulations, (iii)
certain employees did not receive proper expense reimbursements,
(iv) the Company did not maintain accurate and complete payroll
records, and (v) the Company engaged in unfair business practices.

On February 11, 2015, the same law firm representing Morgan filed
a second complaint, entitled Jessica Osuna v. Citizens Business
Bank, et al., Case No. CIVDS1501781, in the Superior Court for San
Bernardino County, alleging wage and hour claims on behalf of the
Company's "non-exempt" hourly employees.

On April 6, 2015, these two cases were consolidated in a first
amended complaint in Los Angeles County Superior Court. The first
amended complaint sought class certification, the appointment of
the plaintiffs as class representatives, and an unspecified amount
of damages and penalties.

On May 11, 2015, the Company filed its answer to the first amended
complaint denying all allegations regarding the plaintiffs' claims
and asserting various defenses. On May 24, 2016, the Company was
served with a second amended complaint which, among other things,
added a third and more recently-employed former employee, Theresa
Ruiz, as one of the named plaintiffs in the action.

The parties are currently engaged in discovery, and the filing of
briefs by the parties in connection with the class certification
motion is not presently expected to commence until at least March
the summer of 2017. The Company intends to vigorously contest both
(x) certification of the class action as well as (y) the
substantive merits of the plaintiffs' claims.

On September 6, 2016, the Company received a demand from the same
law firm representing the named plaintiffs in the class action
seeking penalties under the California Private Attorney General
Act of 2004 ("PAGA") on behalf of on behalf of Anjula Sharma and
all current and former hourly-paid or non-exempt employees
("aggrieved employees") for violation of certain provisions of the
California Labor Code and IWC Wage Orders. The PAGA demand alleges
facts similar to those in the class action. The demand seeks
applicable penalties arising out of the wage, hour and payroll
practices, for violation of the aforementioned provisions of the

FALLS FESTIVAL: Faces Possible Class Action Following Crowd Crush
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Shalailah Medhora at abc.net.au reports that Falls Festival
organisers could face a legal challenge from patrons who were
caught up the crowd crush, as a law firm in Victoria considers
launching a class action case.

Up to 80 people were caught up in the stampede at the Grand
Theatre in the festival in Lorne, as they tried to leave the tent
where DMA's were playing in order to see London Grammar.

Nineteen people were hospitalised with injuries ranging from
broken bones, to possible head and spinal trauma.

One festival-goer got in touch with Hack to tell us about the leg
injuries she suffered. Although they weren't life-threatening,
they've taken their toll.

I'm unable to walk which means I can't work my hospitality job
that I have to save for university," she said.

Maddens Lawyers in Warrnambool have spoken to people caught up in
the crush, many of whom are from the south-western Victorian town.

Brendan Pentergast is the lawyer spearheading the possible class
action lawsuit -- that is, a legal challenge mounted on behalf of
a group of people, in this case, festival-goers who were injured
or traumatised.

'It wasn't possible to leave in a safe way'

He told Hack that from initial reports it looked like the crush
could have been avoided if the site was designed better.

"In the event of a mass exodus... the configuration was such that
it simply wasn't possible for people to leave en masse in a safe
way, and indeed, that's what happened on the 30th of December," he
said.

Festival-goers couldn't control that, and had a reasonable
expectation of safety when they bought their tickets, Brendan
said.

"We say that if you charge a substantial entry fee, or any entry
fee for that matter, to a public event, the attendees are entitled
to be provided to a safe environment in which to view and enjoy
the proceedings."

Brendan said "it may be the case" that regulations around safety
were broken during the festival, but that the law firm was trying
to work that out for sure before deciding whether or not to go
ahead with the class action.

It's important to note that there are a number of investigations
underway about what happened. WorkSafe Victoria are conducting one
that will look specifically at whether the festival broke rules
and regulations around site design and safety procedures.

But it could be ages before we find out for sure. WorkSafe has two
years to finish the investigation, though they have told Hack that
most investigations are completed within six months.

'Confluence of events'

Hack has asked to speak to festival organisers, but they've
declined each time, saying they don't have to speak to us while an
investigation is underway.

Co-producer of the festival, Jessica Ducrou, posted a message on
the Falls Facebook page shortly after the incident, saying a
"confluence of events" led to it occurring in the first place.

"With over 20 years of experience running festivals behind us, we
are completely devastated by the crowd crush that occurred with
patrons exiting The Grand Theatre, and we are beyond shattered
that a number of our festival patrons were injured and impacted by
this event," she said.

"We care so very much about your experience at Falls, we spend
countless hours planning the Falls Festival year-round, with
dedicated teams specifically focused on each event site."

Patron safety is of paramount importance to us and having to
address such a serious situation is very distressing for all."
Jessica has been personally contacting people who were caught up
in the crush.

She said that there were 15 security guards at the Grand Theatre,
which was really close to the nearest medical help point.


FIFTH THIRD BANCORP: Parties in "Klopfenstein" Case in Discovery
----------------------------------------------------------------
The case Klopfenstein v. Fifth Third Bank is in discovery, Fifth
Third Bancorp said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016.

On August 3, 2012, William Klopfenstein and Adam McKinney filed a
lawsuit against Fifth Third Bank in the United States District
Court for the Northern District of Ohio (Klopfenstein et al. v.
Fifth Third Bank), alleging that the 120% APR that Fifth Third
disclosed on its Early Access program was misleading. Early Access
is a deposit-advance program offered to eligible customers with
checking accounts. The plaintiffs sought to represent a nationwide
class of customers who used the Early Access program and repaid
their cash advances within 30 days.

On October 31, 2012, the case was transferred to the United States
District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. In 2013, four
similar putative class actions were filed against Fifth Third Bank
in federal courts throughout the country (Lori and Danielle
Laskaris v. Fifth Third Bank, Janet Fyock v. Fifth Third Bank,
Jesse McQuillen v. Fifth Third Bank, and Brian Harrison v. Fifth
Third Bank). Those four lawsuits were transferred to the Southern
District of Ohio and consolidated with the original lawsuit as In
re: Fifth Third Early Access Cash Advance Litigation. On behalf of
a putative class, the plaintiffs seek unspecified monetary and
statutory damages, injunctive relief, punitive damages, attorney's
fees, and pre- and post-judgment interest. On March 30, 2015, the
court dismissed all claims alleged in the consolidated lawsuit
except a claim under the TILA. The parties are currently engaged
in discovery. No trial date has been scheduled.


FIRST COMMONWEALTH: Parties Negotiating Definitive Settlement
-------------------------------------------------------------
First Commonwealth Financial Corporation said in its Form 10-Q
Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
November 9, 2016, for the quarterly period ended September 30,
2016, that the parties in a class action lawsuit are negotiating
the terms of a definitive settlement agreement.


The Bank and counsel for the plaintiffs reached an agreement-in-
principle to settle the litigation during the second quarter of
2016. The parties are negotiating the terms of a definitive
settlement agreement which would be subject to court approval and
other customary conditions. The estimated cost of the settlement
to the Bank was recorded as a liability in the second quarter of
2016.

First Commonwealth Financial Corporation and First Commonwealth
Bank were named defendants in an action commenced August 27, 2015
by eight named plaintiffs that is pending in the Court of Common
Pleas of Jefferson County, Pennsylvania.  The plaintiffs allege
that the Bank repossessed motor vehicles, sold the vehicles and
sought to collect deficiency balances in a manner that did not
comply with the notice requirements of the Pennsylvania Uniform
Commercial Code (UCC), charged inappropriate costs and fees,
including storage costs for dates that a repossessed vehicle was
not in storage, and wrongly filed forms with the Department of
Motor Vehicles asserting that the Bank had complied with
applicable laws relating to the repossession of the vehicles. The
plaintiffs seek to pursue the action as a class action on behalf
of the named plaintiffs and other similarly situated plaintiffs
who had their automobiles repossessed and seek to recover damages
under the UCC and the Pennsylvania Fair Credit Extension
Uniformity Act.

First Commonwealth and the Bank contest the plaintiffs'
allegations and intend to oppose class certification.  The Bank
has also asserted counterclaims for breach of contract, set-off
and recoupment against the plaintiffs, individually, and as
representatives of the putative class.  The Bank and counsel for
the plaintiffs reached an agreement-in-principle to settle the
litigation during the second quarter of 2016. The parties are
negotiating the terms of a definitive settlement agreement which
would be subject to court approval and other customary conditions.
The estimated cost of the settlement to the Bank was recorded as a
liability in the second quarter of 2016.


FIRST MID-ILLINOIS: Defending Raul v. Highlander Case
-----------------------------------------------------
First Mid-Illinois Bancshares, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9,
2016, for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the
Company as successor to, First Clover Leaf, certain former
executive officers of First Clover Leaf, certain former members of
First Clover Leaf's board of directors are named as defendants in
one purported class action lawsuit brought by an alleged
individual First Clover Leaf stockholder challenging the merger of
First Clover Leaf into the Company (the "Lawsuit").

The Lawsuit is captioned Raul v. Highlander, et al , Case No. 16-
L-703, and was filed on May 20, 2016, in the Circuit Court of
Madison County, Illinois, Third Judicial District.  The Lawsuit
alleges breaches of fiduciary duty by the individual officers and
directors of First Clover Leaf relating to the process leading to
the merger of First Clover Leaf and the Company. The Lawsuit
alleges that the merger consideration was inadequate and that the
joint proxy statement/prospectus did not contain sufficient
disclosures and detail. The Lawsuit also alleges that First Clover
Leaf and the Company aided and abetted the alleged breaches of
fiduciary duty by the individual defendants. The relief sought
includes class certification, declaratory relief, rescission of
the merger should it be consummated, interest on any monetary
judgment, costs, and attorneys' fees.  The Company and the
individual defendants believe that the factual allegations in the
Lawsuit are without merit and legally unfounded. They have moved
to dismiss the complaint and intends to vigorously defend against
these allegations.

GENERAL CABLE: Pomerantz Files Securities Class Action
------------------------------------------------------
Pomerantz LLP disclosed that a class action lawsuit has been filed
against General Cable Corporation and certain of its officers.
The class action, filed in United States District Court, Southern
District of New York, and docketed under 17-cv-00092, is on behalf
of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased or
otherwise acquired General Cable securities between February 23,
2012 and February 10, 2016, both dates inclusive (the "Class
Period"), seeking to recover compensable damages caused by
defendants' violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

If you are a shareholder who purchased General Cable securities
during the Class Period, you have until March 6, 2017 to ask the
Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.  A copy of
the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com.   To
discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at --
rswilloughby@pomlaw.com -- or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll
free, ext. 9980. Those who inquire by e-mail are encouraged to
include their mailing address, telephone number, and number of
shares purchased.

General Cable is a global leader in the development, design,
manufacture, marketing and distribution of copper, aluminum and
fiber optic wire and cable products for use in the energy,
industrial, construction, specialty and communications markets.
The Company additionally engages in the design, integration, and
installation on a turn-key basis for products such as high and
extra-high voltage terrestrial and submarine systems.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants
made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as
failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's
business, operations, and prospects.  Specifically, Defendants
made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose
that:  (i) General Cable paid millions of dollars in bribes to
government officials in foreign countries, including Angola,
Bangladesh, China, Egypt, Indonesia, India, and Thailand, in order
to secure business; (ii) the foregoing conduct was in violation of
the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1997 (the "FCPA"); (iii)
General Cable's revenues were therefore in part the product of
illegal conduct, and, as such, subject to disgorgement and
unlikely to be sustainable; (iv) the foregoing conduct, when it
became known, would subject the Company to significant regulatory
scrutiny and financial penalties; and (v) as a result of the
foregoing, the Company's statements were materially false and
misleading at all relevant times.

On September 22, 2014, General Cable disclosed that the Company
was reviewing "payment practices," "the use of agents," and "the
manner in which the payments were reflected on our books and
records" in connection with General Cable's operations in
Portugal, Angola, Thailand, and India.  General Cable advised
investors that these issues "may have implications under" the
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

On this news, General Cable stock fell $0.93, or 4.68%, to close
at $18.96 on September 22, 2014.

On February 26, 2015, General Cable announced that in connection
with a possible settlement of FCPA offenses, the Company expected
to disgorge $24 million in profits from bribe-tainted sales in
Angola.

On February 10, 2016, post-market, General Cable reported that the
Company had increased its disgorgement accrual for the potential
FCPA settlement by $9 million to $33 million, after identifying
"certain other transactions that may raise concerns".

On this news, General Cable's share price fell $3.05, or 31.61%,
to close at $6.60 on February 11, 2016.

On December 29, 2016, The Wall Street Journal reported that
General Cable had entered into a non-prosecution agreement with
the U.S. Department of Justice, in which the Company "agreed to
pay $75.8 million to settle allegations it paid bribes across
Africa and Asia and . . . agreed to an additional $6.5 million
penalty to settle accounting-related violations."  The article
further stated that the Company's subsidiaries, "over a period of
a dozen years, paid about $13 million to third-party agents and
distributors," who in turn "paid bribes to government officials in
Angola, Bangladesh, China, Indonesia and Thailand to get business
in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act."


GLADE: Freshener Causes Damage to Vehicle's Interior, Suit Says
---------------------------------------------------------------
Robert Lawson at Legal NewsLine reports that a man in Pennsylvania
filed a class action lawsuit against automobile air freshener
maker Glade, alleging its products leak and cause damage to a
vehicle's interior.

Anthony J. Succi filed his complaint on behalf of himself and all
others similarly situated on Nov. 1 in the U.S. District Court for
the Central District of California against Kraco Enterprises LLC
and SC Johnson & Son Inc. The lawsuit alleges violation of the
California Consumer Legal Remedies Act, California False
Advertising Law and negligent misrepresentation.

The plaintiff alleges that he and others were enticed to purchase
the products without knowledge of the likelihood of them causing
unwanted or unnecessary damage to car interior, according to the
complaint. The result was that consumers have allegedly incurred
damages, including financial loss and damage to property and
devaluation of the automobiles.

Neither company named as defendants could be reached for comment.
However, a consumer law attorney for Stanley Law Group, Stephen
Gardner, provided his thoughts to Legal Newsline.

Can the court award damages in a case such as this? How would the
plaintiff prove that Glade is liable for such damage to the
vehicle's interior?

"If the plaintiff can prove it, sure the court can award damages,"
Gardner said in an email to Legal Newsline. "Proving it would
require expert testimony, and I don't have a guess at how they
would do that."

Are there case examples similar to this one to draw experience
from?

"Not really -- a big reason why I don't have a guess as to their
proof," Gardner said.

What is Glade's likely response to this particular matter? Will
they find it frivolous and seek a motion to dismiss?

"The knee-jerk reaction of a class action defendant is to file a
motion to dismiss, in an effort to avoid getting the the actual
facts, so I reckon they will do that," Gardner said. "They will
almost certainly claim the case is frivolous, but that doesn't
mean that it is."

The complaint alleges that the companies were responsible because
they did not disclose the likelihood of these damages and did not
offer to reimburse consumers for losses or damages suffered.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury, maintain the case as a
class action, appoint named plaintiff as the representative of the
class and his counsel as class counsel, damages, restitution,
interest, injunctive and/or declaratory relief, attorneys' fees,
costs and further relief that the court grants and deems
appropriate. His attorneys are Richard D. McCune and David C.
Wright of McCuneWright LLP in Redlands, California, and Joseph G.
Sauder, Matthew D. Schelkopf and Joseph B. Kenney of McCuneWright
LLP in Berwyn, Pennsylvania.


GROVETOWN CITY: To Pay More Than $1.5MM in Outcome of Lawsuit
-------------------------------------------------------------
Abbigail Lennon at The Augusta Chronicle reports that Grovetown
city officials OK'd a final offer to settle a class-action lawsuit
out of court January 4 for more than $1 million after leaders said
that they could not have challenged the accusations at trial.

Mayor Gary Jones said the lawsuit claimed the city had charged
higher water utility rates to cover up embezzlement by a Grovetown
employee. Those allegations are the center of a federal
investigation launched in March.

"It is of my opinion that theft did occur and large amounts of
money was taken and was embezzled and it was in water charges and
we couldn't have won in court," Jones said.

The city agreed to pay $750,000 in the next 10 days and an
additional $62,500 per month for the remainder of 2017, for a
total of $1.5 million according to a Facebook post from Jones.

After attorney fees are paid along with the plaintiffs, Alan
Transou and business owner Deena Youngblood, the remainder will be
placed in a trust fund and redeemed to residents, Jones said,
while stressing that the amounts "will not be astronomical."

Residents will be reimbursed via vouchers or credits by an
administrator of the trust fund. The council is expected to have a
completed list of households affected and what each will be due at
the city's regularly scheduled council meeting.

Jones added that residents will receive only a small portion each
in relation to the settlement because of the more than about 5,000
residents the money will be split among. But the settlement,
though unfortunate, was the right thing to do, Jones said, adding
that part of the money to pay for the agreement will come out of
the city's general fund and the rest from insurance.

"We are not going to raise water rates, and we aren't going to
raise sewer rates. No. 1, it's not the right thing to do, and No.
2, we can't raise them; it's part of the lawsuit agreement," Jones
said. "We have money in reserve so we were able to utilize that to
take care of a majority of this; hopefully insurance will be able
to recoup up to $500,000 of it."

Jones said that the forensic investigation is still ongoing and
that he expects to see a conclusion by the end of January.

"I certainly want to move forward in a progressive fashion," Jones
said. "But we don't know how deep this stuff goes still, we are
still under active criminal investigation; things are still being
found almost daily that we were unaware of."

ILLUMINA INC: Bronstein, Gewirtz Reminds Investors of Class Action
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class
action lawsuit has been filed against Illumina Inc. and certain of
its officers, and is on behalf of a class consisting of all
persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Illumina
securities between July 26, 2016 and October 10, 2016, inclusive.
Such investors are advised to join this case by visiting the
firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/ilmn.

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for
alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants
made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to
disclose: (1) that Illumina was suffering a large decline in its
instrument sales; (2) that this decline was damaging Illumina's
revenue; (3) that Illumina lacked visibility into trends that
could have a substantial impact on its financial results; (4)
that, as such, Illumina's revenue guidance was unreliable and
overstated; and (5) consequently, Illumina's statements its
business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading
and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On October 10, 2016 Illumina announced its disappointing financial
results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2016. Previously, the
company had predicted revenues of $625 to $630 million for the
quarter. Now mentioning "declining demand for its high-speed
genetic sequences," Illumina generated just $607 million.
Following this news, Illumina stock dropped as much as 25% during
intraday trading on October 11, 2016.

ITT: Ch. 7 Trustee Responds to Class Action Complaint
-----------------------------------------------------
Deborah J. Caruso, the chapter 7 Trustee appointed by the United
States Bankruptcy Court to oversee the liquidation of the estate
of the failed ITT Educational Services, Inc. and ITT Technical
Institute responded to the purported class action complaint filed
by the Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School on behalf of
all former ITT students:

"Since the filing of these chapter 7 cases in September, we have
been working with state regulators, the SEC, the Consumer
Financial Protection Bureau, and the Department of Education to
better understand and address the causes of ITT's collapse and
develop a path forward. The Trustee is not ITT. My duty as a
fiduciary is to investigate claims, monetize assets, and make
distributions to creditors. In this case, the creditors not only
include former students, but also a number of other undisputed
claimholders, such as landlords and vendors. Resolving these
claims is an enormous task for a company in a traditional
restructuring, such as a retailer, but it is made even more
complicated where there are several thousand potential student
claimants - each with a unique, heartfelt story to tell - and no
one left at ITT to verify their assertions, or assist in the
response to the allegations.

The complaints filed by the states, the SEC, and the CFPB are a
roadmap, but the Trustee has to travel down the road independently
to make sure that the claims are valid. Otherwise, the risk is
that unsubstantiated claims will dilute recoveries for other
creditors - including other students - and that would defeat the
purpose of the chapter 7 filing. The recent complaint filed by the
Harvard clinic has to be reviewed in the same light."

Focused on Students

"As we have reported to the Bankruptcy Court, in virtually every
appearance we have had, the Trustee is focused on maximizing
recoveries for former students. If there is a recovery to be had
for former students, the Trustee wants them to get it, but the
Trustee also needs to be sure that the student claims do not wipe
out recoveries for other creditors.

To that end, with the assistance of my counsel from Rubin & Levin
and Proskauer Rose we have made great progress. Our first task was
to avoid 'piecemeal litigation'. Significantly, we have reached
agreements with all of the regulators regarding the various state
and federal actions asserting consumer fraud to temporarily stay
the actions while the Trustee conducts her initial investigation.
Those agreements will allow us to work productively to advance the
interests of the creditors without depleting the estate's
resources. In many respects, we share a common interest. We hope
to work constructively with the Harvard clinic, as we are doing
with other regulators, and see no reason why we can't work with
them as well. The complaint filed by the Harvard clinic mirrors
many of the same assertions raised by the regulators. We have
already made contact with the Harvard clinic, and look forward to
speaking with them about ways we can work together to bring these
cases to a successful resolution for everyone."

KELLY SERVICES: Continues to Defend Against "Hillson" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------
Kelly Services, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the Company is a
party to a pending nationwide class action lawsuit entitled
Hillson et.al. v Kelly Services.

The suit alleges that current and former temporary employees of
Kelly Services are entitled to monetary damages for violation of
the Fair Credit Reporting Act requirement that the notice and
disclosure form provided to employees for purposes of conducting a
background screening be a standalone document. On April 20, 2016
the parties entered into a formal settlement agreement. The
parties still must secure court approval of the settlement. In
light of amounts previously expensed and anticipated recoveries
from third parties, Kelly recorded an accrual in the fourth
quarter of 2015 of $4.1 million to reflect the expected cost of
the tentative settlement.


LOUISIANA: Cities Sue DOTD Over Historic August Flooding
--------------------------------------------------------
Heidi Kinchen at The Advocate reports that the cities of Denham
Springs and Walker and others filed a class-action lawsuit against
the state Department of Transportation and Development on January
5, claiming a median barrier built along Interstate 12 caused
widespread destruction by preventing the flow of rainwater during
the historic August flooding in Livingston and East Baton Rouge
parishes.

The 19-mile median wall, built between eastbound and westbound
lanes of I-12 as part of the "Geaux Wider" project, acted as a dam
that interrupted the natural flow of water, causing damage that
would not have occurred otherwise, according to the lawsuit filed
in Baton Rouge state court.

City officials hope the lawsuit will spur the state to fix the
problems they say were created by the private contractors who
designed and built the wall - and to do so before another flood
threatens. They also want the state to correct the design for
future I-12 expansions.

"Our primary goal is to make sure this never happens again,"
Joshua Palmintier, of DeGravelles Palmintier law firm, said during
a press conference held at Walker Town Hall. "We are optimistic
this process can be started quickly and economically, before the
next hurricane season."

Palmintier, whose firm signed onto the case at the request of
former Walker Mayor Rick Ramsey, said many of the 100,000 or more
homes and businesses that flooded north of the wall were not
covered by flood insurance because they were not in high-risk
flood zones.

Denham Springs Mayor Gerard Landry said another flood like the one
in August "would mean the death of several cities along the I-12
corridor."

"We've barely survived it once. I don't think we could sustain a
second time," he said.

Livingston Parish President Layton Ricks said unless Gov. John Bel
Edwards steps in, the problems will continue with future floods.

Rodney Mallett, a DOTD spokesman, said in an emailed statement
that safety barriers built on Louisiana interstates are designed
and constructed according to national standards.

He said Gov. Edwards and DOTD Secretary Shawn Wilson met with
Ramsey to discuss his concerns about the I-12 median wall.

"The unprecedented flood event resulting from historic rains
caused tremendous damage and destruction," Mallett said. "We
continue to study the ramifications of public infrastructure in
natural disasters. DOTD's focus is on what is best for citizens of
Louisiana. In doing so, safety of the traveling public must always
be our first priority."

The lawsuit targets not only the state, but also 20 private
contractor firms that worked on the interstate project, and seeks
damages for property and economic losses from the flooding.

The naming of one private firm as a defendant presents a potential
conflict for Livingston Parish government. Forte & Tablada serves
as the parish's planning review engineering firm.

Ricks said he did not know what role Forte & Tablada may have
played in the design and construction of the barrier wall. Nor had
he realized the firm would be among the named defendants until the
day before the lawsuit was filed, he said.

"Our intent is to support this lawsuit, but I want to make sure
the Parish Council is fully informed, as I have now been, of all
the potential players in this situation before the parish signs
on," Ricks said.

Also joining the press conference in support of the lawsuit were
Central Mayor Jr. Shelton and newly seated Walker Mayor Jimmy
Watson, who said the wall must be fixed and residents whose homes
were built a foot above base flood elevation and still received 3
feet or more of water should get some kind of relief.

PAYPAL HOLDINGS: Brower Piven Files Securities Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------
The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional
Corporation, disclosed that a class action lawsuit has been filed
against PayPal Holdings, Inc., and PayPal's former parent company,
eBay, Inc., on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or
entities who: (1) purchased or otherwise acquired eBay securities
on the open market on or after December 19, 2013 (the "eBay Class
Period") and subsequently received PayPal securities pursuant to
eBay's spin-off of PayPal, effective as of July 17, 2015; and/or
(2) purchased or otherwise acquired PayPal securities on the open
market between July 20, 2015 and April 28, 2016, both dates
inclusive (the "PayPal Class Period" and, together with the eBay
Class Period, the "Class Period").  Investors who wish to become
proactively involved in the litigation have until February 27,
2017 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you
must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the
Court.  The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and
participate in important decisions including whether to accept a
settlement for the Class in the action.  The lead plaintiff will
be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from
investment in PayPal and/or eBay securities during the Class
Period.  Members of the Class will be represented by the lead
plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff.  No class has
yet been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants'
failure to disclose during the Class Period that PayPal's Venmo
service was engaged in unfair trade practices, which were likely
to subject the Company to increased regulatory scrutiny and/or
affect the profitability of PayPal's Venmo service.

According to the complaint, following an April 28, 2016
announcement that PayPal received a civil investigative demand on
March 28, 2016 from the Federal Trade Commission seeking documents
related to the Company's Venmo peer-to-peer payment service in

PROCTER & GAMBLE: Evidence Gathering Underway in Wipes Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------
Katherine Johnson of 6news reports that attorneys representing
flushable wipes companies have now come out to Minnesota for their
own inspection of clogs cities claim are damaging the sewers.

Cities in Minnesota are suing six companies for advertising
certain wipes as flushable.

The cities are seeking compensation for time and money spent to
repair and unclog the sewers.

The class action lawsuit includes the cities of Wyoming, Mankato,
Holmen, Fergus Falls, Elk River and Princeton, along with the
Chisago Lakes Joint Sewage Commission, Sauk Centre Public
Utilities Commission.

They are suing six companies: Procter & Gamble Company, Kimberly-
Clark Corporation, Nice-Pak Products, Inc., Professional
Disposables International, Inc., Tufco Technologies Inc. and
Rockline Industries, for advertising wipes as flushable.

Chisago Lakes Joint Sewage Plant Superintendent Mark Nelson has
seen all kinds of items get flushed away but says the most
frustrating of them all remains the wipe.

"We recently had one station that plugged a pump four times in one
day," said Nelson.

As part of the class-action lawsuit, the court ordered the cities
involved to allow company lawyers to check out the sewer systems
themselves.

However, due to our Minnesota temperatures, Nelson couldn't haul
out all of the equipment requested for inspection.

"With the cold weather, it's hard to have equipment sitting
outside," he said.

Wipes are getting caught in screens, clogging pipes, building up
and costing cities both man hours and a lot of money.

The dumpster at Nelson's plant gets filled up with clogging debris
once a week.

Companies argue the wipes clogging systems are non-flushable wipes
that people flush anyway.

A Kimberly-Clark representative tells 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS, "Our
products meet or exceed the widely accepted industry standards of
flushability," and, "In Minnesota, Kimberly-Clark is not aware of
any instance where a K-C flushable wipe has caused a clog in a
municipal sewer."

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission recently finished an
investigation into the marketing claims for Kimberly-Clark's
flushable wipes.

That investigation closed without any negative findings against
the company.

Dave Rousse, President of INDA, the Association of the Non-woven
Fabrics Industry, says people believe all wipes are flushable, but
really only 7 percent of wipes on the market will break down in
sewers.

He blames the consumer for the clogs, adding, "Too many wipes that
shouldn't get flushed are getting flushed."

The lawsuit was filed in 2015 and, right now, a 20-day jury trial
isn't scheduled to start until April of 2018.


PROVECTUS BIOPHARMACEUTICALS: Settlement Wins Final Court Okay
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, In re Provectus Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. Securities
Litigation, Case No. 14-cv-00338 (E.D. Tenn.), District Judge
Pamela L. Reeves on Dec. 12 issued a final judgment and order of
dismissal with prejudice.  Judge Reeves granted final approval to
the settlement reached in the case.

The Company and its insurance carrier have agreed to pay the total
amount of $3.5 million.

The Court also approved the Lead Plaintiff attorneys' fees
equivalent to 33.3% of the settlement fund plus expenses in the
amount of $52,004.65.  The lead plaintiff, Fawwaz Hamati, is
granted $10,000 for representing the class.

A copy of the Court's order is available at https://is.gd/shQc6n

Additional information on the case is available at:

           http://www.provectussecuritieslitigation.com/

Provectus Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9,
2016, for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that on
May 27, 2014, Cary Farrah and James H. Harrison, Jr., individually
and on behalf of all others similarly situated (the "Farrah
Case"), and on May 29, 2014, each of Paul Jason Chaney,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated (the
"Chaney Case"), and Jayson Dauphinee, individually and on behalf
of all others similarly situated (the "Dauphinee Case") (the
plaintiffs in the Farrah Case, the Chaney Case and the Dauphinee
Case collectively referred to as the "Plaintiffs"), each filed a
class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the
Middle District of Tennessee against the Company, the Former CEO,
Timothy C. Scott and Peter R. Culpepper (the "Defendants")
alleging violations by the Defendants of Sections 10(b) and 20(a)
of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder and
seeking monetary damages. Specifically, the Plaintiffs in each of
the Farrah Case, the Chaney Case and the Dauphinee Case allege
that the Defendants are liable for making false statements and
failing to disclose adverse facts known to them about the Company,
in connection with the Company's application to the FDA for
Breakthrough Therapy Designation ("BTD") of the Company's melanoma
drug, PV-10, in the Spring of 2014, and the FDA's subsequent
denial of the Company's application for BTD.

On July 9, 2014, the Plaintiffs and the Defendants filed joint
motions in the Farrah Case, the Chaney Case and the Dauphinee Case
to consolidate the cases and transfer them to United States
District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee. By order
dated July 16, 2014, the United States District Court for the
Middle District of Tennessee entered an order consolidating the
Farrah Case, the Chaney Case and the Dauphinee Case (collectively
and, as consolidated, the "Securities Litigation") and transferred
the Securities Litigation to the United States District Court for
the Eastern District of Tennessee.

On November 26, 2014, the United States District Court for the
Eastern District of Tennessee (the "Court") entered an order
appointing Fawwaz Hamati as the Lead Plaintiff in the Securities
Litigation, with the Law Firm of Glancy Binkow & Goldberg, LLP as
counsel to Lead Plaintiff. On February 3, 2015, the Court entered
an order compelling the Lead Plaintiff to file a consolidated
amended complaint within 60 days of entry of the order.

On April 6, 2015, the Lead Plaintiff filed a Consolidated Amended
Class Action Complaint (the "Consolidated Complaint") in the
Securities Litigation, alleging that Provectus and the other
individual defendants made knowingly false representations about
the likelihood that PV-10 would be approved as a candidate for
BTD, and that such representations caused injury to Lead Plaintiff
and other shareholders. The Consolidated Complaint also added Eric
Wachter as a named defendant.

On June 5, 2015, Provectus filed its Motion to Dismiss the
Consolidated Complaint (the "Motion to Dismiss"). On July 20,
2015, the Lead Plaintiff filed his response in opposition to the
Motion to Dismiss (the "Response"). Pursuant to order of the
Court, Provectus replied to the Response on September 18, 2015.

On October 1, 2015, the Court entered an order staying a ruling on
the Motion to Dismiss pending a mediation to resolve the
Securities Litigation in its entirety. A mediation occurred on
October 28, 2015. On January 28, 2016, a settlement terms sheet
(the "Terms Sheet") was executed by counsel for the Company and
counsel for the Lead Plaintiff in the consolidated Securities
Litigation.

Pursuant to the Terms Sheet, the parties agree, contingent upon
the approval of the court in the consolidated Securities
Litigation, that the cases will be settled as a class action on
the basis of a class period of December 17, 2013 through May 22,
2014. The Company and its insurance carrier agreed to pay the
total amount of $3.5 million (the "Settlement Funds") into an
interest bearing escrow account upon preliminary approval by the
court in the Consolidated Securities Litigation. The Company has
determined that it is probable that the Company will pay $1.85
million of the total, which has been accrued at December 31, 2015
and was paid in March 2016. The insurance carrier will pay $1.65
million of the total directly to the plaintiff's trust escrow
account. Notice will be provided to shareholder members of the
class. Shareholder members of the class will have both the
opportunity to file claims to the Settlement Funds and to object
to the settlement. If the court enters final approval of the
settlement, the Securities Litigation will be dismissed with full
prejudice, the Defendants will be released from any and all claims
in the Securities Litigation and the Securities Litigation will be
fully concluded. If the court does not give final approval of the
settlement, the Settlement Funds, less any claims administration
expenses, will be returned to the Company and its insurance
carrier.

A Stipulation of Settlement encompassing the details of the
settlement and procedures for preliminary and final court approval
was filed on March 8, 2016. The Stipulation of Settlement
incorporates the provisions of the Terms Sheet and includes the
procedures for providing notice to stockholders who bought or sold
stock of the Company during the class period. The Stipulation of
Settlement further provides for (1) the methodology of
administering and calculating claims, final awards to
stockholders, and supervision and distribution of the Settlement
Funds and (2) the procedure for preliminary and final approval of
the settlement of the Securities Litigation.

On April 7, 2016, the court in the Securities Litigation held a
hearing on preliminary approval of the settlement, entered an
order preliminarily approving the settlement, ordered that the
class be notified of the settlement as set forth in the
Stipulation of Settlement, and set a hearing on September 26, 2016
to determine whether the proposed settlement is fair, reasonable,
and adequate to the class; whether the class should be certified
and the plan of allocation of the Settlement Funds approved;
whether to grant Lead Plaintiff's request for expenses and Lead
Plaintiff's counsel's request for fees and expenses; and whether
to enter judgment dismissing the Securities Litigation as provided
in the Stipulation of Settlement.

On September 16, 2016, the Lead Plaintiff notified the court that
approximately 6,300 stockholders did not receive notification of
the proposed settlement until late August 2016 because of the
delayed receipt of potential Settlement Class Member information
from a number of brokers. As a result, on September 22, 2016, the
parties filed a joint motion requesting that the court extend the
deadlines to file a Proof of Claim, request exclusion from the
settlement, or file an objection to the settlement, and that the
court schedule a continued settlement hearing. The court granted
the motion, cancelling the settlement hearing that had been set
for September 26 and re-setting the hearing to take place on
December 12, 2016. The court set a new deadline of November 10,
2016 for objections and requests for exclusion, and November 25,
2016 for submitting proofs of claim.


QUEBEC: Could Face Class-Action Lawsuits Over Photo Radar Tickets
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CTV News reports that two Montreal lawyers are pushing for class
action lawsuits against the province of Quebec in the hopes of
having hundreds of thousands of speeding tickets issued with photo
radar evidence thrown out or refunded.

"We're claiming that the system set up by the government
essentially tricked people into saying, 'We have this super solid
evidence against you,'" lawyer Joey Zukran told CTV Montreal.

Over the past eight years, Quebec has raked in more than $100
million from tickets issued through its photo radar program. But
in November, a Quebec judge threw out a woman's $1,100 ticket,
stating in their ruling that photo radar evidence amounts to
"hearsay" unless someone witnesses the infraction.

"By having this in writing, confirmed, it gives us the green light
to move forward to obtain compensation for the citizen(s)," Zukran
said.

Zukran has filed a motion for a class action lawsuit against
multiple government bodies in Quebec in the hopes of securing
compensation for roughly 400,000 drivers ticketed over the past
three years, as far back in time as he is legally able to go.

Jamie Benizri, another Montreal lawyer, has also filed a motion to
launch a similar class action suit.

"We've kind of opened the Pandora's Box," Benizri told CTV
Montreal.

Since the November ruling, hundreds of photo radar tickets have
been put on hold to be studied on a case-by-case basis.

"What I suspect will happen is that they're going to be committing
a lot more manpower and . . . . team to these operations to ensure
that they now satisfy certain criteria and that we don't have the
appearance of 'hearsay,' which has kind of plagued the whole photo
radar campaign," Benizri said.

"That's great for all future tickets," Zukran added, "however, you
have six years, and in our case, based on prescription, three
years where we can go back to make the claim for all those that
have fell victim to this system."

The lawsuits, however, won't be speeding through the courts. Both
lawyers expect that it will take a year before a judge even
decides whether or not to give the class actions the green light.

SEQUENTIAL BRANDS: Martha Stewart Merger Class Suit Underway
------------------------------------------------------------
Sequential Brands Group, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2016,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the
Company continues to defend against the case, Martha Stewart
Living Omnimedia, Inc., et al.

The Company was formed on June 5, 2015, for the purpose of
effecting the merger of Singer Merger Sub, Inc. with and into
SQBG, Inc. (formerly known as Sequential Brands Group, Inc.) ("Old
Sequential") and the merger of Madeline Merger Sub, Inc. with and
into Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc. ("MSLO"), with Old
Sequential and MSLO each surviving the merger as wholly-owned
subsidiaries of the Company (the "Mergers"). Prior to the Mergers,
the Company did not conduct any activities other than those
incidental to its formation and the matters contemplated in the
Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of June 22, 2015, as
amended, by and among the Company, MSLO, Old Sequential, Singer
Merger Sub, Inc., and Madeline Merger Sub, Inc. (the "Merger
Agreement").

On December 4, 2015, pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Old
Sequential and MSLO completed the strategic combination of their
respective businesses and became wholly-owned subsidiaries of the
Company. Old Sequential was the accounting acquirer in the
Mergers; therefore, the historical consolidated financial
statements for Old Sequential for periods prior to the Mergers are
considered to be the historical financial statements of the
Company and thus, the Company's consolidated financial statements
reflect Old Sequential's consolidated financial statements for the
period from January 1, 2015 through December 4, 2015, and the
Company's consolidated financial statements thereafter.

In connection with the Mergers, the following 13 putative
stockholder class action lawsuits have been filed in the Court of
Chancery of the State of Delaware: (1) David Shaev Profit Sharing
Plan f/b/o David Shaev v. Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. et
al. filed on June 25, 2015; (2) Malka Raul v. Martha Stewart
Living Omnimedia Inc. et al. filed on June 26, 2015; (3) Daniel

All of the 13 class action lawsuits name Old Sequential, MSLO, the
MSLO board of directors, Madeline Merger Sub, Inc., Singer Merger
Sub, Inc. and the Company as defendants and allege that (a)
members of the MSLO board of directors breached their fiduciary
duties and (b) Old Sequential, MSLO, Madeline Merger Sub, Inc.,
Singer Merger Sub, Inc. and the Company aided and abetted such
alleged breaches of fiduciary duties by the MSLO board of
directors.

On August 18, 2015, the Delaware Chancery Court issued an order
consolidating these actions for all purposes under the caption In
re Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc., et al. to be the
operative complaint in the consolidated action.

On January 12, 2016, after the consummation of the Mergers, the
plaintiffs filed a Verified Consolidated Amended Class Action
Complaint, naming Ms. Martha Stewart, the Company, Old Sequential,
Madeline Merger Sub Inc. and Singer Merger Sub Inc. and alleging
that (a) Ms. Stewart breached her fiduciary duties to MSLO's
stockholders and (b) the Company, Old Sequential, Madeline Merger
Sub Inc. and Singer Merger Sub Inc. aided and abetted Ms.
Stewart's breach of her fiduciary duties. The plaintiffs seek to
recover unspecified damages allegedly sustained by the plaintiffs,
restitution and disgorgement by Ms. Stewart, the recovery of
plaintiff's attorney's fees and other relief.

The Company said, "We believe that we have meritorious defenses to
the claims made by the plaintiffs, and we are vigorously defending
such claims. Litigation costs in this matter may be significant.
We do not expect that the ultimate resolution of this matter will
have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements."

TRICO BANCSHARES: Settles Suits by Two Personal Bankers
-------------------------------------------------------
TriCo Bancshares said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that the Bank has
agreed to settle two class action complaints by former personal
bankers.

On September 15, 2014, a former Personal Banker at one of the
Bank's in-store branches filed a Class Action Complaint against
the Bank in Butte County Superior Court, alleging causes of action
related to the observance of meal and rest periods and seeking to
represent a class of current and former hourly-paid or non-exempt
personal bankers, or employees with the same or similar job
duties, employed by the Bank within the State of California during
the preceding four years. On or about June 25, 2015, Plaintiff
filed an Amended Complaint expanding the class definition to all
current and formerly hourly-paid or non-exempt branch employees
employed by the Bank within the State of California at any time
during the period from September 15, 2010 to final judgment. The
Bank responded to the First Amended Complaint, denying the
charges, and the parties engaged in written discovery. The parties
engaged in non-binding mediation of this action during the third
quarter of 2016.

On January 20, 2015, a then-current Personal Banker at one of the
Bank's in-store branches filed a First Amended Complaint against
Tri Counties Bank and TriCo Bancshares, dba Tri Counties Bank, in
Sacramento County Superior Court, alleging causes of action
related to wage statement violations. Plaintiff seeks to represent
a class of current and former exempt and non-exempt employees who
worked for t defendants during the time period beginning October
18, 2013 through the date of the filing of this action. The
Company and the Bank responded to the First Amended Complaint,
denying the charges, and engaged in written discovery with
Plaintiff. The parties engaged in non-binding mediation of this
action during the third quarter of 2016.

During the third quarter of 2016, the Bank agreed to settle the
two foregoing matters. In connection with the settlement and in
consideration for the full settlement and release of all claims,
the Bank would pay up to $1.9 million. The actual cost of the
settlement will depend on the number of claims submitted by
purported class members and the Bank estimates that the actual
cost of settlement will be approximately $1,450,000. In the event
that the parties enter into a stipulation of settlement, hearings
will be scheduled at which the court will consider the settlement.
The settlement is subject to customary conditions, including court
approval following notice to members of the purported classes.
There can be no assurance that the parties will ultimately enter
into a stipulation of settlement or that the court will approve
the settlement even if the parties were to enter into such
stipulation.


ULTA SALON: Court Preliminary Approves Moore Class Action Deal
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned SARAH MOORE, on behalf of herself and
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. ULTA SALON, COSMETICS
& FRAGRANCE, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 2:12-cv-03224-FMO-AGR
(C.D. Cal.), the Hon. Fernando M. Olguin entered an order:

   1. granting Plaintiff's unopposed motion for preliminary
      approval of class action settlement;

   2. approving the form, substance, and requirements of the
      Notice, Opt-Out Form, and Claim Form

   3. directing the parties to carry out the settlement and
      claims process according to the terms of the Settlement
      Agreement.

   4. appointing CPT Group (CPT) as Settlement Administrator.

The court preliminarily finds that the terms of the Settlement
Agreement are fair, reasonable, adequate, and comply with Rule
23(e) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The proposed manner
of the notice of settlement set forth in the Settlement Agreement
constitutes the best notice practicable under the circumstances
and complies with the requirements of due process.

Any class member who wishes to: (a) object to the settlement,
including the requested attorney's fees, costs, and incentive
payment; and/or (b) exclude him or herself from the settlement
must file his or her objection to the settlement or request for
exclusion (i.e., the Opt-Out Form) no later than March 29, 2017,
in accordance with the Settlement Agreement, Notice and/or
Opt-Out Form. Any class member who wishes to appear at the final
approval (fairness) hearing, either on his or her own behalf or
through an attorney, to object to the settlement, including the
requested attorney's fees, costs, and incentive payment, shall, no
later than March 29, 2017, file with the court and serve on class
counsel and defendants a Notice of Intent to Appear at Fairness
Hearing (Notice). The Notice shall indicate whether the class
member will appear on his or her own behalf or through an
attorney.

A final approval (fairness) hearing is set for May 18, 2017, at
10:00 a.m. in Courtroom 6D of the First Street Courthouse, to
consider the fairness, reasonableness, and adequacy of the
settlement as well as the award of attorney's fees and costs to
class counsel, and an incentive payment to the class
representative. The Plaintiff shall file a motion for the award of
a class representative incentive payment and attorney's fees and
costs no later than March 20, 2017. In the event any objections to
the motion are filed, class counsel shall, no later than May 1,
2017, file a reply addressing the objections.

The Plaintiff shall, no later than May 1, 2017, file and serve a
motion for final approval of the settlement and a response to any
objections to the settlement. The motion shall be noticed for
hearing on the date set forth in paragraph 9 above. Defendant may
file and serve a memorandum in support of final approval of the
settlement or in response to objections no later than May 1, 2017.

UNITED STATES: Risk Corridor Case Certified as Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------
Luke Gale at Healthcare Dive reports that the lawsuit brought
against the government by the Health Republic Insurance Company is
one of more than a dozen filed by payers over money owed through
the risk corridor program. In November, CMS quietly revealed that
the government would only pay 2% of the $5.9 billion it owed
through the program for 2016.

With the Obama administration on its way out and the Trump
administration taking over with plans for repealing the ACA on the
table, it is unclear how the government will proceed in legal
proceedings over the risk corridor program. The government had
indicated a willingness to settle these suits, but has been
defending them in court, as Timothy Jost reported in Health
Affairs.

The legislation puts the Trump administration in an awkward
position. Settling with payers over risk corridor payments could
be seen as a bailout. However, fighting the lawsuits in court
would mean defending a law that President-elect Trump has harshly
criticized.

VECTOR GROUP: Liggett Still Faces 3 Class Suits
-----------------------------------------------
Vector Group Ltd. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2016, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2016, that as of September
30, 2016, three actions were pending for which either a class had
been certified or plaintiffs were seeking class certification
where Liggett is a named defendant. Other cigarette manufacturers
are also named in these actions.

Plaintiffs' allegations of liability in class action cases are
based on various theories of recovery, including negligence, gross
negligence, strict liability, fraud, misrepresentation, design
defect, failure to warn, nuisance, breach of express and implied
warranties, breach of special duty, conspiracy, concert of action,
violation of deceptive trade practice laws and consumer protection
statutes and claims under the federal and state anti-racketeering
statutes. Plaintiffs in the class actions seek various forms of
relief, including compensatory and punitive damages,
treble/multiple damages and other statutory damages and penalties,
creation of medical monitoring and smoking cessation funds,
disgorgement of profits, and injunctive and equitable relief.

Defenses raised in these cases include, among others, lack of
proximate cause, individual issues predominate, assumption of the
risk, comparative fault and/or contributory negligence, statute of
limitations and federal preemption.

In November 1997, in Young v. American Tobacco Co., a purported
personal injury class action was commenced on behalf of plaintiff
and all similarly situated residents in Louisiana who, though not
themselves cigarette smokers, allege they were exposed to
secondhand smoke from cigarettes that were manufactured by the
defendants, including Liggett, and suffered injury as a result of
that exposure. The plaintiffs seek to recover an unspecified
amount of compensatory and punitive damages. No class
certification hearing has been held. The case has been stayed for
a number of years, with the stay renewed every few years.  The
last stay was entered on March 16, 2016 and stays the case,
including all discovery, pending the completion of the smoking
cessation program ordered by the court in Scott v. The American
Tobacco Co.

In February 1998, in Parsons v. AC & S Inc., a purported class
action was commenced on behalf of all West Virginia residents who
allegedly have personal injury claims arising from exposure to
cigarette smoke and asbestos fibers. The complaint seeks to
recover $1,000 in compensatory and punitive damages individually
and unspecified compensatory and punitive damages for the class.
The case is stayed due to the December 2000 bankruptcy of three of
the defendants.

Although not technically a class action, in In Re: Tobacco
Litigation (Personal Injury Cases), a West Virginia state court
consolidated approximately 750 individual smoker actions that were
pending prior to 2001 for trial of certain "common" issues.
Liggett was severed from trial of the consolidated action. After
two mistrials, in May 2013, the jury rejected all but one of the
plaintiffs' claims, finding in favor of plaintiffs on the claim
that ventilated filter cigarettes between 1964 and July 1, 1969
should have included instructions on how to use them. The issue of
damages was reserved for further proceedings. The court entered
judgment in October 2013, dismissing all claims except the
ventilated filter claim. The judgment was affirmed on appeal and
remanded to the trial court for further proceedings. In April
2015, the plaintiffs filed a petition for writ of certiorari to
the United States Supreme Court which subsequently declined
review. In July 2015, the trial court ruled on the scope of the
ventilated filter claim and determined that only 30 plaintiffs
have potentially viable claims against the non-Liggett defendants,
which may be pursued in a second phase of the trial. The court
intends to try the claims of these plaintiffs in six consolidated
trials, each with five plaintiffs. The trial court set the first
date for the consolidated trials for January 9, 2017. With respect
to Liggett, the trial court requested that Liggett and plaintiffs
brief whether any claims against Liggett survive given the outcome
of the first phase of the trial. On May 23, 2016, the trial court
ruled that the case may proceed against Liggett. Liggett requested
that the trial court certify the matter to the West Virginia
Supreme Court of Appeals for review, but the trial court refused.
It is estimated that Liggett could be a defendant in approximately
75 individual cases.

In addition to the cases described, numerous class actions remain
certified against other cigarette manufacturers including cases
alleging, among other things, that use of the terms "lights" and
"ultra lights" constitutes unfair and deceptive trade practices.
Adverse decisions in these cases could have a material adverse
affect on Liggett's sales volume, operating income and cash flows.

WAL-MART STORES: Bid to Certify 3 Classes in Nikmanesh Suit Nixed
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned AFROUZ NIKMANESH, the Plaintiff v. WAL-
MART STORES, INC. ET AL., the Defendant, Case No. 8:15-cv-00202-
AG-JCG (C.D. Cal.), the Hon. Andrew J. Guilford entered an order
denying these classes:

Rest Break Class:

   "all current and former non-exempt employees, employed by
   Defendants as Pharmacists in the State of California, who did
   not take a 10-minute rest break during the first 4 hours of
   their shift, or a second 10-minute rest break for all shifts
   of 6-10 hours, when they were scheduled to be the only
   Pharmacist on duty at any time during their shift, within four
   years before the filing of the original complaint until the
   date of judgment;

Wage Statement Class:

   "all current and former non-exempt employees, employed by
   Defendants as Pharmacists within the State of California, who
   are members of the Rest Break Class, and as a result of the
   rest break claims alleged in the Second Amended Complaint,
   were not provided with accurate, itemized wage statements as
   required by California Labor Code section 226, within one year
   before the filing of the original Complaint until the date of
   judgment; and

Waiting Time Class:

   "all former non-exempt employees, employed by Defendants as
   Pharmacists in the State of California, who are not members of
   the Training Course Class, but are members of the Rest Break
   Class, and as a result of the rest break claims alleged in the
   Second Amended Complaint, were not paid all wages due and
   owing at the time of their separation as required by
   California Labor Code sections 201-203, within three years
   from the filing of the original Complaint until the date of
   judgment.

The Court said, "There are too many variables at play here that
affected class members individually and differently for "questions
of law or fact common to class members" to "predominate" over
questions affecting only individual members. The following are
just a few examples of these variables. First, Defendants point
out that Walmart does not have a requirement that in-store
prescriptions be filled within 20 minutes, although "some Market
Directors and Regional Directors have identified that timing as a
goal." Second, while a class member stated that it did not "make
sense" to go through the security measures "for almost 35 minutes"
to close down the pharmacy for a 10 minute break, there is
evidence that it took other pharmacists as little as 30 seconds to
close a pharmacy. One of Plaintiffs' own exhibits shows that the
process for closing down a pharmacy varies depending on the
store's layout and number of doors or gates. This pharmacist also
testified that it takes him "no more than one minute" to close
down the pharmacy and take a break. Third, while filling in-store
prescriptions within 20 minutes was Walmart's goal, failing to do
so did not automatically have negative consequences for each class
member. The consequences instead depended on the pharmacist's
individual situation. Different class members experienced
different situations and "policies" that allegedly prevented them
from taking mandated rest breaks. A company goal or policy that
encourages one employee to work harder and prevents his or her
from taking breaks does not necessarily have the same effect on
all other employees. The common questions do not predominate over
questions affecting only individual class members in this case.
Shortly before oral argument, plaintiffs cited a very recent case,
decided on November 21, 2016. See Lubin v. Wackenhut Corp., 210
Cal. Rptr. 3d 215 (Cal. Ct. App. 2016). This state appellate
decision reversed the state trial court after the trial court
reversed itself on a class certification motion following the
United States Supreme Court's decision in Dukes. Just before
reversing itself, the Lubin trial court received further briefing
on a new case from the California Supreme Court. See Brinker Rest.
Corp. v. Superior Court, 273 P.3d 513 (Cal. 2012). So, to review,
plaintiffs call upon the Court to discern the law applicable in
this federal case by reviewing a very recent state court of appeal
decision reversing a state trial judge who, with guidance from the
California Supreme Court in Brinker, reversed himself under Dukes.
As this Court noted at the hearing on this matter, there is
uncertainty about the interplay of state and federal law here,
both concerning class certification requirements, and developing
substantive wage and hour law. And its worthy of note that Dukes
involved sex discrimination and its unique body of substantive
federal law. In all events, Lubin does not convince this Court
that plaintiffs have affirmatively established the requirements
for class certification under Rule 23. See Dukes, 564 U.S. at
350-51".

ZIMMER BIOMET: Lundin Law Files Class Action Lawsuit
----------------------------------------------------
Lundin Law PC, a shareholder rights firm, disclosed a class action
lawsuit against Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. concerning possible
violations of federal securities laws between September 7, 2016
and October 31, 2016 inclusive. Investors, who purchased or
otherwise acquired Tenet shares during the Class Period, are
encouraged to contact the firm in advance of the January 31, 2016

Per the complaint, during the Class Period, Zimmer made materially
false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose
material adverse facts about its business, operations, and
prospects. The complaint is as follows: that issues within the
supply chain caused a decline in order fulfillment, particularly
within the knee and hip portfolios; that, because of this, Zimmer
would not achieve its revenues and profit as anticipated and; that
as a result of the above, the Company's statements regarding its
business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading
and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On October 31, 2016, the Company issued a press release reporting
third quarter 2016 financial results. Zimmer reported net sales of
$1.83 billion, and lowered guidance for the full year 2016 at
$7.630 billion to $7.650 billion, a decline from the $7.68 billion
to $7.715 billion estimated in July. Zimmer maintains that weak
sales are due to a change in the supply chain, leading to a lack
of available implants and instrument sets during the quarter.

In a conference with investors following the above release, the
Company stated: "Third quarter revenue was below our expectations,
primarily due to execution issues within our large joint supply
chain, which led to a degradation in order fulfillment rates late
in the quarter, as well as our performance in dental . . .  As a
consequence, we underestimated demand for certain key cross-sell
brands within our existing customer base, leading to a depletion
of our safety stocks and also affecting our ability to capitalize
on new customer opportunities."

Following this, shares of Zimmer fell $17.15 per share, or nearly
14%, to close on October 31, 2016 at $105.40 per share, causing
investors harm.

No class has been certified in the above action. Until a class is
certified, you are not considered represented by an attorney. You
may also choose to do nothing and be an absent class member.

* Supreme Court to Consider Taking up Validity of Suit Waivers
--------------------------------------------------------------
Robert Lafolla at Reuters reports that the U.S. Supreme Court will
consider on January 6 several cases asking it to decide whether
companies can force employees to sign away their right to bring
class actions as part of their arbitration agreements.

The justices are slated at their conference to discuss four
separate petitions for certiorari asking for review of appeals
court rulings, with decisions from the 2nd and 5th U.S. Circuit
Courts of Appeals finding that class-action waivers were
enforceable and judgments from the 7th and 9th Circuits holding
that they violated workers' rights.
