1ST FINANCIAL: Mississippi Woman Seeks Class Action Status of Suit
------------------------------------------------------------------
Jonathan Ellis at Argus News reports that a Mississippi woman is
asking a federal judge to certify a class-action lawsuit against a
South Dakota bank, claiming the bank hounded her by phone to
collect a debt that she did not owe.

Linda Pendleton claims that 1st Financial Bank violated the
Telephone Consumer Protection Act when it began contacting her
using automated dialing equipment without her consent.

"Beginning around at least September 2015, although plaintiff
never provided defendant with her cellular phone, consent to
contact her cellular phone, or had any debt with 1st Financial,
plaintiff began receiving unsolicited phone calls from 1st
Financial, sometimes multiple times a day, attempting to collect
on an alleged debt owed on behalf of her adult son," the complaint
alleges.

Wayne Nesje, a senior vice president, said the bank doesn't
comment on litigation.

1st Financial Bank was first granted a state charter in 1910 and
has branches in Dupree and Dakota Dunes, as well as a separate
credit card division. Its Dakota Dunes location was the firsts
commercial business in the town.

According to the lawsuit, the bank routinely uses "unreliable skip
tracing methods or through number trapping" when it is unable to
reach debtors with the telephone numbers they provided the bank
when opening accounts. That practice means it regularly makes
calls to cellular telephone numbers without consent.

Supreme Court hears Premier Center settlement case
"The TCPA strictly forbids nuisance calls exactly like those
alleged in this complaint -- intrusive phone calls to private
cellular phones, placed to numbers obtained without the prior
express consent of the call recipients," the complaint says.

Class-action lawsuits are not as common in South Dakota as they
are in other parts of the country, said Cesar Juarez, a local
lawyer representing Pendleton, because the state isn't home to big
industries.

In order to qualify as a class action, it would need certification
from a judge, Juarez said. Part of the certification process would
include a finding that the people called by 1st Financial suffered
the same or similar damages.

The lawsuit claims that tens of thousands of calls were made in
violation of the TCPA, which exceeds the $5 million threshold for
federal court jurisdiction.

In 2010, 1st Financial agreed to pay $140,000 in penalties and $10
million in restitution under a settlement with the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corp. to resolve claims that the bank's credit card
division engaged in unfair and deceptive practices.

adverse events" including "deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary
embolism, gallbladder disease, ectopic pregnancy and depression."
Furthermore, 51.4% of subjects left the study.

APPLE INC: Consumers Can Begin Suing for App Store Monopoly
-----------------------------------------------------------
Chris Loterina at Tech Times reports the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of
Appeals has ruled that consumers can now begin suing Apple for the
charge of monopoly in the way it conducted its business at the App
Store. The court has effectively reversed a district court's
dismissal of an antitrust complaint, one of the severa class-
action suits against the company.

On Apple's Anticompetitive Practice

The decision stemmed from a case filed last 2011 wherein several
iPhone users complained that the company's rule of having the
device run apps that are available exclusively in the Apple
marketplace is anticompetitive. This covered the years 2007
through 2013.

The lower court's dismissal, which has been the subject of the
appeal, was based on the argument that the complaint lacked
statutory standing. It has given Apple's position merit, which
held that its customers are purchasing apps from developers and
that its role is analogous to a building owner, renting out spaces
to its tenants.

According to the appellate court, the dynamics of the transactions
transpiring in the App Store is tantamount to the condition
wherein consumers are purchasing directly from Apple. Aside from
the fact that Cupertino is directly transacting with customers
instead of the developers, one should note that Apple itself
receives a cut whenever an app gets sold.

Right To Sue vs. Merit

To be clear, the appeals court only ruled on the issue about
whether the public has the right to sue Apple. It did not yet
resolve Cupertino's culpability in the antitrust charge.
At this point, the court has only stated that the procedural
nature of the case is complex. It has noted, however, how the
Apple ecosystem is closed and restrictive.
"Apple prohibits app developers from selling iPhone apps through
channels other than the App Store, threatening to cut off sales by
any developer who violates this prohibition," the court cited the
plaintiff's allegation.

Potential Impact

The latest ruling has achieved no significant milestone in the way
Apple is expected to conduct its affair at the App Store. It has
merely opened the company to a legal challenge that could take
years before it is resolved.

But if the judicial system does find that Apple's model is indeed
anticompetitive, then that impact will be quite dramatic.
"The obvious solution is to compel Apple to let people shop for
applications wherever they want, which would open the market and
help lower prices," Mark Rifkin, the lawyer representing the
complainants, said in a Reuters report. "The other alternative is
for Apple to pay people damages for the higher than competitive
prices they've had to pay historically because Apple has utilized
its monopoly."

Apple has not released any statement on the issue so far. It has
also faced several antitrust lawsuits involving its products such
as the iPhone as well as its alleged eBook price fixing.


APPLE INC: Must Face Lawsuit Over App Monopoly
----------------------------------------------
Kartikay Mehrotra at Bloomberg Today reports Apple Inc. must face
consumer claims that it tried to monopolize the market for iPhone
apps from 2007 to 2013 in a class-action lawsuit seeking hundreds
of millions of dollars in damages.

A federal appeals court in San Francisco revived the proposed
class-action lawsuit after a lower-court judge dismissed it. The
three-judge panel concluded the judge erred in finding that the
consumers lacked standing to sue as "direct purchasers" of apps.

An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on the court's decision.

Consumers alleged in a complaint originally filed in 2011 that
Apple violated U.S. antitrust law by requiring iPhone apps to be
sold at Apple's App Store and prohibiting third-party app
developers from selling the software outside of it. Apple requires
iPhone software developers to turn over 30 percent of what they
charge for an app, increasing prices and excluding competitors
from the iPhone "aftermarket" of apps, according to the suit.

Mark Rifkin, Esq. -- rifkin@whafh.com -- with Wolf Haldenstein, a
lawyer for the plaintiffs, said January 12 that millions of
consumers should be able to recover most of Apple's 30 percent
take from app store sales. He said that while the case hasn't won
class-action status yet, he may seek to expand the scope of the
class to include everyone who has bought apps for iPhones to the
present. Based on a provision in federal law that triples the
damages awarded in antitrust cases, he estimated Apple's exposure
could reach hundreds of millions of dollars.

Apple said in its defense that "it does not sell apps but rather
sells software distribution services to developers," according to
the court's decision.

Apple cited a 1977 Supreme Court ruling that bars consumers from
recovering damages from a company if it doesn't directly sell its
products to consumers. The appeals panel said the lower court
erred in accepting this argument since iPhone users are direct
consumers of content in the App store.

"Apple's analogy is unconvincing," the court said. "In the case
before us, third-party developers of iPhone apps do not have their
own stores."

The case is In re Apple iPhone Litigation, 14-15000, U.S. Court of
Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (San Francisco).

CANADA: Suits Over Purge of Gay Employees Proceeding
----------------------------------------------------
Dylan C. Robertson at Daily Extra reports that class-action
lawsuits against the federal government's purge of gay employees
are proceeding, with increasing calls for an apology and
compensation for fired ousted public servants.

This month, staff in some federal departments have been asked to
preserve written, printed and electronic documents. The request,
seen by Xtra, asks public servants to store any communications
from June 27, 1969, onwards that "relate to or refer to sexual
orientation, gender identity or gender expression" as well as
employment records of people dismissed or harassed on those
grounds.

Constitutional lawyer Douglas Elliott, with Cambridge LLP who
filed one of two class-action lawsuits in October 2016, says both
are proceeding, with a court appearance scheduled Feb 10, 2017.

"We have told the federal government that they should be producing
documents that may be relevant to the case," Elliott says.

Elliott says that Justice Department lawyers say they prefer a
settlement to court-ordered compensation.

"The discussions are at a very preliminary stage right now,"
Elliott says. "We don't know any of the details of what they're
prepared to do."

The Liberal government's special advisor on LGBTQ2 issues, MP
Randy Boissonnault, wasn't available for comment. "Our government
is committed to working with the LGBTQ2 community to advance and
protect their rights and address historical injustices they have
endured," Boissonnault's constituency manager Brendon Legault told
Xtra.

Elliott's suit involves federal public servants and military
employees fired due to their perceived sexualities. His suit is
paired to a Quebec suit, because that province uses a different
code law.

CONAGRA FOODS: 9th Cir. Rejects Admin. Infeasibility Argument
-------------------------------------------------------------
The National Law Review reports that the Ninth Circuit recently
affirmed a trial court's certification of a class action,
rejecting the defendant's argument that there is no
administratively feasible way to identify class members. The case
is Briseno v. ConAgra Foods, Inc.

The Facts of this Case:

Robert Briseno brought suit against ConAgra Foods, Inc., alleging
that the "100% natural" label on its Wesson-brand cooking oil
products was false or misleading. Mr. Briseno and other plaintiffs
brought suit against ConAgra in eleven states. Those cases were
consolidated into a single class action containing several
subclasses.

Class plaintiffs alleged that Wesson oil products are made from
bioengineered ingredients, or genetically modified organisms
(GMOs), and therefore were not "100% natural."

ConAgra opposed class certification on the ground that there is no
administratively feasible way to identify members of the proposed
class. Because the product is of such low cost, ConAgra argued,
consumers would most likely not have retained receipts and most
likely could not clearly recollect their purchases over the period
of time during which the plaintiffs sought damages. Amongst the
many problems that this creates, ConAgra argued it would not be
able to identify which consumers relied on the "100% natural"
claim, and which consumers were misled by it. In addition, class
members could identify themselves with nothing more than an
unsubstantiated affidavit alleging harm.

The Law on Class Actions:
Under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23, which governs class
actions, a plaintiff must satisfy four requirements to obtain
class certification -- numerosity, commonality, typicality, and
adequacy.

In addition, a court must find that a class action is superior to
other available methods for fairly and efficiently adjudicating
the controversy. This means, among other things, that the court
must consider the likely difficulties that the court and the
parties will face in managing a particular class.

What the Court Said:
The trial court rejected ConAgra's argument. The trial court held
that, for the purpose of certifying a class, the plaintiffs only
need to clearly define the potential class. And the trial court
found that the plaintiffs had in fact defined the class: all
persons who purchased Wesson oil during the class period.

The trial court further noted that Rule 23 does not permit a court
to consider the administrative infeasibility of identifying class
members when certifying a class.

ConAgra appealed the decision to the Ninth Circuit and the Ninth
Circuit agreed with the trial court. In doing so, the Ninth
Circuit contributed to an existing split amongst the circuit
courts nationwide. The majority of the appellate circuits have
held, like the Ninth Circuit, that "administrative feasibility" is
not a prerequisite that a plaintiff must meet to attain class
certification. There are nevertheless two circuits that have
opined that administrative feasibility is a bona fide
consideration.

The First and Third Circuits have stated clearly their position
that the administrative feasibility of identifying class members
is a prerequisite to class certification.

One interesting feature of this case is that the Ninth Circuit
acknowledged that Rule 23 already has a mechanism for addressing
the difficulties in determining which class members have and have
not suffered an injury. The rule requires the court to consider
whether a class action is a superior method to non-class methods
for fairly and efficiently adjudicating a controversy.

Yet, in the particular case of Briseno v. ConAgra, the Ninth
Circuit opined that the class format is indeed superior to its
alternatives. The court reasoned that, because the product in
question, Wesson oil, is so inexpensive, that plaintiffs could not
individually bring suit as efficiently as they could in the
context of a class.

What Companies Should Do:
In light of Briseno v. ConAgra, companies should carefully
consider the utility of the administrative feasibility argument
when assessing the relative likelihood of class certification. The
outcome, when raising this challenge, will depend greatly on the
circuit in which a class action has been assigned.

Given the split in circuits on this question, it is now more
likely to be an issue that the U.S. Supreme Court might wish to
review.

In the meantime, companies faced with class actions should address
administrative infeasibility arguments by using the framework of
universally accepted and enumerated prerequisites to class
certification. For example, it may now be more effective to
challenge class certification under the predominance, typicality,
manageability, or superiority requirements since Rule 23 clearly
imposes those requirements for class certification.


CONAIR CORP: March 23 Hair Dryer Settlement Fairness Hearing Set
----------------------------------------------------------------
If you bought a Conair Infiniti Pro 1875 watt model 259 or 279
hair dryer, you could get a new hair dryer or money from a class
action settlement
www.ConairClassActionSettlement.com

1. Why was this notice issued?

A Court authorized this notice because you have a right to know
about a proposed Settlement of a class action lawsuit, and about
all of your options, before the Court decides whether to approve
it.  This notice explains the lawsuit, the Settlement, your legal
rights, the benefits that are available, who is eligible to
receive them, and how to get them.

Honorable Roger B. Benitez of the United States District Court for
the Southern District of California is overseeing this class
action.  The case is known as Czuchaj v. Conair Corporation,
Case No. 13-cv-01901. The people who sued are called Plaintiffs,
and the company they sued, Conair Corporation, is called the
Defendant or Conair.

2. What is this lawsuit about?

The lawsuit claims that the Hair Dryers sold by Conair had
defectively designed heating coils and electrical cords which
caused the Hair Dryers to fail, and sometimes injure consumers.
Specifically, the lawsuit contends Conair violated California and
New York laws by falsely advertising and/or selling a product with
alleged defects.  Personal injury and property damage claims are
not included in this Settlement and you are not giving up your
right to make these claims whether you participate in this
Settlement or not.

Conair denies all of the claims in the lawsuit.

3. What is a class action?

In a class action lawsuit, one or more people called Class
Representatives (in this case, Cynthia Czuchaj and Patricia
Carter) sue for all people who have similar claims.  The people
included in the class action are called a Class or Class members.
One court resolves the issues for all Class members, except those
people who exclude themselves from the Settlement.

4. Why is there a Settlement?

The Court did not decide in favor of Plaintiffs or Defendant.
Instead, both sides agreed to a Settlement.  The Settlement avoids
the cost and risk of a trial, and makes money available to those
affected.  The Class Representatives and their attorneys think the
Settlement is in the best interest of the Class.

WHO IS INCLUDED IN THE SETTLEMENT

To see if you can get a new hair dryer or money from this
Settlement, you first have to find out if you are a Class member.

5. How do I know if I am part of the Settlement?

The Settlement includes everyone who purchased a Hair Dryer for
personal, family or household use and not for resale either (a) in
California from August 15, 2009 through August 31, 2016 and/or (b)
in New York from August 15, 2010 through August 31, 2016. The Hair
Dryers are Infiniti Pro 1875 watt model 259 or 279 hair dryers.

6. How do I know if my hair dryer is included?

Your hair dryer is included in the Settlement if the handle shows
it is a "Model 259" or "Model 279."

Your hair dryer must also include the letters "SE", "SR" or "N"
on the metal prong of the plug.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE YOUR HAIR DRYER. You may still be eligible
if you can provide independent proof of purchase such as a prior
contact with Conair or a government agency which
includes the date of such contact.


7. Are there exceptions to being included?

People who have a conflict of interest in this case, for example:
Class Counsel; the judges who presided over the case; and the
Defendant and its subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, officers,
directors, agents, representatives, and their family members are
not included in the Settlement.

THE SETTLEMENT BENEFITS -- WHAT YOU GET

8. What does the Settlement provide?

Class members who bought a Hair Dryer made by Neumax will receive
a replacement hair dryer. (Neumax hair dryers have a letter "N" on
the metal prong of the electric plug).  Class members who
bought a Hair Dryer made by Silver Plan or Sun Luen, will receive
a $5.00 check (these hair dryers have letters "SE" or "SR" on the
metal prong of the electric plug).

9. What can I get from the Settlement?
Class members who bought a Hair Dryer made by Neumax will receive
a comparable replacement hair dryer.  Class members who bought a
Hair Dryer made by Silver Plan or Sun Luen will receive a $5.00
check.

10. What am I giving up in exchange for the Settlement?

If the Settlement is approved and becomes final, all of the
Court's orders will apply to you and legally bind you.  That means
you won't be able to sue, continue to sue, or be part of another
lawsuit against Conair for the same legal issues raised in this
case.  The Settlement does not affect your right to sue
Conair for personal injury or property damage caused by one of the
Hair Dryers.  The specific rights you are giving up are called
Released Claims.  The Released Claims are described in more detail
in the Definitions Section of the Settlement Agreement at Section
12.1.2. The Settlement Agreement is
available at www.ConairClassActionSettlement.com.  If you have
questions about the Released Claims or what they mean you can talk
to one of the lawyers at the law firms listed in Question 18 for
free, or you can talk with your own lawyer.

HOW TO GET A PAYMENT -- SUBMITTING A CLAIM FORM

11. How do I get a payment or a replacement hair dryer, if
qualified?

To get a payment from the Settlement you must submit a claim form
by March 9, 2017. You may get the claim form at
www.ConairClassActionSettlement.com. Claim forms are also
available by calling 1-844-286-9535 or writing to the Claims
Administrator at the address above.  You must complete and
submit your claim form by mailing it to Conair Claims
Administrator, c/o KCC Class Action Services,
P.O. Box 43416, Providence, RI 02940-3416.

To be considered valid, your claim form must include all of the
requested information and your signature and be submitted or
postmarked by March 9, 2017.

12. When will I get my payment or replacement hair dryer, if
qualified?

The Court will hold a hearing on March 23, 2017 to decide whether
to approve the Settlement.  If Judge Benitez approves the
Settlement, there may be appeals.  It is always uncertain whether
the appeals can be resolved and resolving them can take time.
Please be patient.

EXCLUDING YOURSELF FROM THE SETTLEMENT

If you want to keep the right to sue or continue to sue Conair for
the same claims in a different lawsuit, you must take steps to get
out of the Class.  This is called excluding yourself or opting-out
of the Class.

13. How do I get out of the Settlement?
To exclude yourself from the Settlement, you must send a letter by
mail stating you want to be excluded from the Czuchaj, et al. v.
Conair Corporation lawsuit and Hair Dryer Settlement.  Be sure to
include your name, address, telephone number, and your signature.
Your letter must be postmarked by March 9, 2017, to: Conair
Exclusions, c/o KCC Class Action Services, P.O. Box 43416,
Providence, RI 02940-3416.

You cannot exclude yourself by phone or email.

14. If I exclude myself, can I get money from this Settlement?

No. If you exclude yourself, you are telling the Court you don't
want to be part of the Class in this Settlement.  You can only get
a payment if you stay in the Class and submit a claim form.

15. If I do not exclude myself, can I sue Conair for the same
thing later?

No. Unless you exclude yourself, you give up the right to sue
Conair for the claims that this Settlement resolves.  You must
exclude yourself from this Class to continue with your own
lawsuit, unless your lawsuit is seeking money for personal injury
or property damage caused by one of the Hair Dryers.  If you have
a pending lawsuit against Conair for the Conair Infiniti Pro 1875
watt model 259 or 279 hair dryer, you should speak to your lawyer
in that lawsuit immediately.

THE LAWYERS REPRESENTING YOU

16. Do I have a lawyer in this case?

Yes. The Court appointed the law firms of Odenbreit Law, APC;
Cohelan, Khoury & Singer; and Bisnar Chase, LLP to represent you
and other Class members.  The lawyers are referred to as Class
Counsel.  You will not be charged for the services of these
lawyers in this case.  If you want to be represented by your own
lawyer, you may hire one at your own expense.

17. How will the lawyers be paid?

Class Counsel has not been paid for any of their work in this
lawsuit.  Class Counsel will ask the Court to award them
attorneys' fees of up to $1,196,000 and reimbursement of their
costs and expenses of up to $485,000.  They will also ask the
Court for a payment of up to $10,000 for each of the Class
Representatives for their bringing the lawsuit and representing
the Class.  The Court may award less than these amounts.  All of
these amounts, as well as the cost to administer the Settlement,
will be paid by Conair.

OBJECTING TO THE SETTLEMENT

You can tell the Court you do not agree with the Settlement or
some part of it.

18. How do I tell the Court that I do not like the Settlement?
If you are a Class member, you can object to the Settlement.  You
can give reasons why you think the Court should not approve it.
The Court will consider your views before making a decision.
Objections must be submitted in writing, filed with the Court, and
received by Class Counsel and Defendant's Counsel, no later than
March 9, 2017. Objections must be signed and include:

1) the case name and number (Czuchaj, et al. v. Conair
Corporation, Case No. 13-cv-01901);

2) your full name, current address, telephone number, and
signature;

3) an explanation of the basis upon which you claim to be a
Settlement Class member and
proof you are a Settlement Class member;

4) the basis of your objection;

5) a statement confirming whether you intend to personally appear
and/or testify at the

19. What is the difference between objecting and asking to be
excluded?

Objecting is telling the Court you do not like something about the
Settlement.  You can object only if you stay in the Class (do not
exclude yourself).  Excluding yourself is telling the Court you do
not want to be part of the Class.  If you exclude yourself, you
cannot object because the case no longer affects you.

THE COURT'S FAIRNESS HEARING
The Court will hold a hearing to decide whether to approve the
Settlement.  You may attend, but you don't have to.

20. When and where will the Court decide whether to approve the
Settlement?

The Court will hold a Fairness Hearing at 10:30 a.m. on March 23,
2017, at the United States District Court for the Southern
District of California, 221 West Broadway, San Diego, California,
in Courtroom 5A.  At this hearing, the Court will consider whether
the Settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate.
If there are objections, the Court will consider them.  Judge
Benitez will listen to people who have asked to speak at the
Fairness Hearing.  The Court may also decide how much to pay Class
Counsel.  After the Fairness Hearing, the Court will decide
whether to approve the Settlement.  We do not know how long these
decisions will take.

The Fairness Hearing may be moved to a different time or date
without notice.  Changes will be posted at
www.ConairClassActionSettlement.com.

21. Do I have to come to the hearing?

No. Class Counsel will answer any questions Judge Benitez may
have.  You are welcome to attend at your own expense.  If you send
an objection, you do not have to appear in Court to talk about it.
As long as you filed your written objection on time, the Court
will consider it.  You may also pay your own
lawyer to attend, but it is not necessary.

22. May I speak at the hearing?

Yes. You may ask the Court for permission to speak at the Fairness
Hearing.  To do so, you must file a notice of intention to appear
with the Clerk of the Court by March 9, 2017.  Be sure to include
your name, address, telephone number, and your signature.  You
cannot speak at the hearing if you exclude yourself.

IF YOU DO NOTHING

23. What happens if I do nothing at all?

If you do nothing, you won't get any money from this Settlement.
If the Settlement is approved and becomes final, all of the
Court's orders will apply to you and legally bind you.  That means
you will give up your right to start a lawsuit, continue with a
lawsuit, or be part of any other lawsuit against Conair about the
same legal issues raised in this case.  You will keep your right
to sue Conair for claims for personal injury or property damage
caused by one of the Hair Dryers.

DAKOTA PLAINS: Feb. 14 Lead Plaintiff Motion Deadline Set
---------------------------------------------------------
Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class
action lawsuit has been filed against Dakota Plains Holdings, Inc.
("Dakota Plains" or the "Company") (OTCMKT:DAKP) and certain of
its officers, and is on behalf of purchasers of Dakota Plains
securities from March 23, 2012 and August 15, 2016 inclusive (the
"Class Period"). Such investors are advised to join this case by
visiting the firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/dakp.

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 that throughout the Class Period, Dakota Plains made
false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
(1) Dakota Plains did not disclose that Ryan Gilbertson and
Michael L. Reger, co-founders of a different Dakota Plains
company, had true control of Dakota Plains' business and
operations; (2) that the Company and its management caused harm to
Dakota Plains investors, as it worked with Gilbertson and Reger to
misappropriate Dakota Plains' assets for Gilbertson and Reger's
own benefit; (3) that Dakota Plains did not have effective and
adequate internal control; and (4) consequently, Dakota Plains'
public statements about its business, operations and prospects
were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On October 31, 2016, the SEC announced that it charged Ryan
Gilberston, co-founder of Dakota Plains, "with manipulating
[Dakota Plains'] stock price and concealing his control of the
company to attain lucrative financial payouts." The SEC also
stated that Michael Reger, the Company's co-founder, agreed to pay
close to $8 million to settle other charges against him in
connection with the manipulation of Dakota Plains' stock price.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to

DEVON ENERGY: Court Reconsiders Denial of Seeligson's Cert. Bid
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Ed Kinkeade entered a memorandum opinion and order in the
lawsuit captioned HENRY SEELIGSON, JOHN M. SEELIGSON, SUZANNE
SEELIGSON NASH, and SHERRI PILCHER, individually and on behalf of
all others similarly situated v. DEVON ENERGY PRODUCTION COMPANY,
L.P., Case No. 3:16-CV-00082-K (N.D. Tex.), granting the
Plaintiffs' motion for the court to reconsider its order denying
class certification and denying as moot the Plaintiffs' motion for
leave to file second class certification motion.

The Plaintiffs brought this action on behalf of similarly situated
royalty owners alleging that Defendant Devon Energy Production
Company, L.P., improperly and intentionally underpaid royalties
owed to the Plaintiffs and class members for gas that was
processed through the Bridgeport Gas Processing Plant.  The
Plaintiffs and proposed class members own or owned royalty
interests in wells that produce gas that was processed through the
Bridgeport Plant of DEPCO.

The Court finds that the Plaintiffs' proposed class is adequately
defined and clearly ascertainable.  Upon reconsideration, the
Court grants the Plaintiffs' Motion for Class Certification and
certifies a class consisting of:

     All person or entities who, between January 1, 2008 and
     February 28, 2014, (i) are or were royalty owners in Texas
     wells producing natural gas that was processed through the
     Bridgeport Gas Processing Plant by Devon Gas Services, LP
     (DGS); (ii) received royalties from Devon Production
     Company, L.P. (DEPCO) on such gas; and (iii) had oil and gas
     leases that were on one of the following forms: Producers
     88-198(R) Texas Paid-Up (2/93); MEC 198 (Rev. 5/77);
     Producers 88 (Rev 10-70 PAS) 310; Producers 88 Revised
     1-53--(With Pooling Provision); Producers 88 (2-53) With 640
     Acres Pooling Provision; Producers 88 (3-54) With 640 Acres
     Pooling Provision; Producers 88 (4-76) Revised Paid Up with
     640 Acres Pooling Provision; Producers 88 (7-69) With 640
     Acres Pooling Provision; and Producers 88 (Rev. 3-42) With
     40 Acres Pooling Provision (The Class Lease Forms).

The persons or entities excluded from the Class are: (a)
overriding royalty interest owners who derive their interest
through the oil and gas lease; (b) all governmental entities,
including federal, state and local governments and their
respective agencies, departments, or instrumentalities; (c) the
States and territories of the United States or any foreign
citizens, states, territories or entities; (d) the United States
of America; (e) publicly traded entities and their respective
parents, affiliates, and related entities; (f) owners of any
interests and/or leases located on or within any federally created
units; (g) owners of any non-operating working interest for which
DEPCO or its agents or representatives, as operator, disburses
royalty; (h) DEPCO and any entity in which DEPCO has a controlling
interest, and their officers, directors, legal representatives and
assigns; and (i) members of the judiciary and their staff to whom
this action is assigned.

The Court further orders that Henry Seeligson, John M. Seeligson,

ENHANCED RECOVERY: Court Refuses to Certify Class in "Bartl" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Joan N. Ericksen denied the Plaintiff's motion for
certification of the class action titled Christopher M. Bartl, on
behalf of himself and all others similarly situated v. Enhanced
Recovery Company, LLC, Case No. 16-cv-252 (JNE/KMM) (D. Minn.).

The putative class action is brought by Christopher M. Bartl
against Enhanced Recovery Company, LLC, under the Fair Debt
Collection Practices Act.  Mr. Bartl claimed that ERC violated the
Act by continuing collection activity without responding to his
written dispute of a debt and by failing to inform a credit
reporting agency that he disputed the debt.  Mr. Bartl moved to
certify this class:

     All consumers nationwide who, within the dates between
     February 3, 2015 until June 1, 2015, on any Sprint account,
     received a collection letter from Defendant ERC in a form
     substantially similar or materially identical to Exhibit A
     (attached to Plaintiff's Amended Complaint), then
     subsequently disputed the debt pursuant to 15 U.S.C. Section
     1692g(b) with Defendant, then failed to receive any
     correspondence and/or documentation from Defendant verifying
     the disputed alleged debt, and thereafter had their alleged
     debt reported to the national credit reporting agencies.

In the Order, Judge Ericksen noted that the Plaintiff has not
offered the Court any basis to determine how many accounts were
reported without receipt by the consumer of verification of the
debt.  On this record, the Court concludes that Mr. Bartl failed
to satisfy his burden of demonstrating that the class is so
numerous that joinder of all members is impracticable.

"Having concluded that Bartl did not demonstrate that Rule 23(a)'s
numerosity requirement is satisfied, the Court need not consider
the remaining requirements of Rule 23," Judge Ericksen opined.

ERGON ASPHALT: Responds to Suits Over Water Crisis
--------------------------------------------------
Kristv reports Ergon Asphalt & Emulsions and Valero are responding
to the lawsuits filed against them.

Hundreds of local businesses blame the companies for losses during
last month's water crisis. Three of the lawsuits filed against
Ergon and Valero are class-action lawsuits.

Ergon filed a response removing the class-action suits from county
court into federal court.

Court documents claim no wrong-doing, reading: "Ergon submits this
notice of removal without waiving any defenses to the claims
asserted by Plaintiffs..."

Attorneys for Valero also filed an affidavit stating the company
agrees with the removal.

However, the lawyers for the plaintiff -plan to fight a move to
federal court, and are filing motions to assign the cases to
county court.

The things are at issue really only deal with a really small
defined geographic area, all within the state of Texas, all within
Nueces County," said Kathryn Snapka, help@snapkalaw.com with The
Snapka Lawfirm attorney for the plaintiffs. "With this defined
group of people, there is no reason to invoke the jurisdiction of
the federal court."

Representatives for Valero declined to comment, and attorneys for
Ergon did not respond to requests for comment about their motion.

A federal judge will decide where the lawsuits will ultimately
play out. An initial pretrial hearing is scheduled for early
April.

FIAT CHRYSLER: Faces Suit Over Illegal Diesel Emissions
-------------------------------------------------------
The US Justice Department accused Fiat Chrysler today of
intentionally failing to disclose software in some of its diesel
engine vehicles that allows them to emit more pollution that
allowed under the Clean Air Act. The Environmental Protection
Agency also issued a "notice of violation" to Chrysler citing more
than 104,000 vehicles with 3-liter diesel engines including the
2014 through 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram pickups.

The EPA said it found at least eight undisclosed pieces of
software that can alter how a vehicle emits air pollution. EPA
assistant administrator for enforcement and compliance, Cynthia
Giles, said, "Failing to disclose software that affects emissions
in a vehicle's engine is a serious violation of the law, which can
result in harmful pollution in the air we breathe."

Heninger Garrison Davis, LLC is in the process of filing a class
action complaint and investigating other claims of Chrysler Fiat's
illegal diesel emissions. If you have one of the vehicles that has
been cited in violation, please contact us to discuss the
possibility vehicles in violation, please contact us to discuss

to you unless we are able to recover for you.

FIAT CHRYSLER: Siskinds Files Class Action Lawsuit Over Dodge Ram
-----------------------------------------------------------------
On December 23, 2016, Siskinds LLP filed a proposed class action
lawsuit against the manufacturers and engine suppliers of certain
diesel-powered Dodge RAM 2500 and Dodge RAM 3500 heavy duty pickup
trucks.

The action relates to an alleged conspiracy among the defendants
to equip these trucks with catalyst systems that are not durable
and that cause the trucks to consume more fuel and emit higher
levels of nitrogen oxides than advertised and allowed by law. It
is also alleged that these systems cause the catalytic converter
used in these trucks to fail prematurely.

The proposed class action seeks to represent all persons or
entities who purchased or leased a diesel-powered Dodge RAM 2500
(2WD, 4WD), model years 2007-2010; Dodge RAM 2500 (non-SCR
systems, 2WD, 4WD), model years 2011-2012; Dodge RAM 3500 (2WD,
4WD), model years 2007-2010; or Dodge RAM 3500 (non-SCR systems,
2WD, 4WD), model years 2011-2012.

GENERAL CABLE: March 6 Lead Plaintiff Bid Deadline
--------------------------------------------------
The law firm of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP announces that
a shareholder class action lawsuit has been filed against General
Cable Corporation (BGC) ("General Cable" or the "Company") on
behalf of purchasers of the Company's securities between February
23, 2012 and February 10, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period").

General Cable shareholders who purchased their securities during
the Class Period may, no later than March 6, 2017, petition the
Court to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the
class.

Shareholders who wish to discuss this action or request additional
information about the lawsuit are encouraged to contact Kessler
Topaz Meltzer & Check attorneys D. Seamus Kaskela or Adrienne O.
Bell at (888) 299-7706 or online at: https://www.ktmc.com/new-
cases/general-cable-corporation#join

General Cable Corporation designs, develops, manufactures,
markets, and distributes copper, aluminum, and fiber optic wire
and cable products for the energy, industrial, construction, and
specialty and communications markets worldwide.

The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period General Cable
and certain of its executive officers 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 (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; and (iv)
the foregoing conduct, when it became known, would subject the
Company to significant regulatory scrutiny and financial
penalties. The complaint further alleges that, as a result of the
foregoing, General Cable's statements about its business,
operations and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a
reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On September 22, 2014, General Cable disclosed that it 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 the Company's operations in Portugal,
Angola, Thailand, and India. On this news, shares of the Company's
stock fell $0.93 per share, or 4.7%, to close at $18.96 on
September 22, 2014.

Subsequently, on February 10, 2016, General Cable reported that it
had increased a disgorgement accrual for a potential FCPA
settlement to $33 million after identifying "certain other
transactions that may raise concerns." On this news, shares of the
Company's stock fell an additional $3.05 per share, or 31.6%, to
close at $6.60 on February 11, 2016.

Finally, 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 and "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
reported 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."

General Cable shareholders may, no later than March 6, 2017,
petition the Court to be appointed as a lead plaintiff
representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check
or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent
class member. A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts
on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation. In
order to be appointed as a lead plaintiff, the Court must
determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims
of other class members, and that the class member will adequately
represent the class in the action. Your ability to share in any
recovery is not affected by the decision of whether or not to
serve as a lead plaintiff. For additional information, or to learn

HALL COUNTY: Faces Suit Over Frozen Pension Benefits
----------------------------------------------------
Nick Watson at Gainesvilletimes reports that Five current and
former Hall County employees filed an estimated $75 million class-
action lawsuit January 9 against the county regarding frozen
pension benefits.

The expected class is more than 100 Hall County employees, the
overwhelming majority being first responders.

"We cannot comment on pending litigation," Hall County spokeswoman
Katie Crumley said. County Attorney Bill Blalock, Esq. --
wblalock@smf-law.com -- of Stuart Melvin & Frost also declined to
comment.

The Times also reached out to commissioners Jeff Stowe and Scott
Gibbs. Neither had been briefed on details of the lawsuit.

Attorney Ed Buckley, Esq. -- edbuckley@buckleybeal.com -- of the
Atlanta-based firm Buckley | Beal said the lawsuit is regarding
retired employees and employees reaching retirement that "are
being denied and will be denied pension fund benefits unless we
are able to resolve this."

The lawsuit filed in Fulton County Superior Court is challenging a
1998 freeze in retirement pension benefits. The lawsuit claims the
county "made no additional employer contributions for plaintiffs
to the 'trust fund.'"

One example listed in the lawsuit was 1st Lt. Bradford Rounds, who
was hired in Hall County in 1988.

According to the lawsuit, Rounds' monthly pension benefit would be
$2,567 under the plan's formula.

"Under defendants' 'freeze' of his accrued pension benefits as of
July 1, 1998, his 'frozen' monthly pension benefit is only $389
per month," according to the lawsuit.

The county commissioners were served with the lawsuit at their
regular 6 p.m. meeting January 12.

Around 5:30 p.m. January 12, some 30 Hall County employees
gathered with Buckley and attorney Michael Kramer, Esq. --
mekramer@buckleybeal.com -- of Buckley | Beal before entering the
meeting. Hall County Fire Services Volunteer Chaplain Mike Taylor
offered the invocation that indirectly referenced the lawsuit.

"As we come tonight, we've got a sampling of concerned employees
tonight, and I pray --  all of us pray  --  that with their
presence here that a new dialogue would open," he said. "And we
give you thanks at the beginning of that dialogue that we live in
a country that is ruled by law and order, and there's an organized
and civil way of solving our differences."

Kramer said the chaplain's message would "set a wonderful tone for
the board of commissioners and for the employees."

"We need to get together and try to resolve this in a fair way for
all these employees who've worked so hard for the county and for
the citizens of this county," he said.

Kramer said the class has about 70 current employees and about 30
that retired after July 1, 2008.

The attorneys claimed Hall County "discriminated unlawfully" by
exempting retirees from the freeze who left between 1998 and June
30, 2008.

"These commissioners didn't do this originally, but now it is on
their watch," Buckley said.


HARMAN: CEO Faces Class Action Lawsuit Over Samsung Merger
----------------------------------------------------------
Dominik Bosnjak at Andriod Headlines reports that a group of
Harman's shareholders is opposing the merger with Samsung and has
filed a class action lawsuit against the company's board of
directors and Dinesh Paliwal, the CEO of the Stamford-based firm.

The lawsuit was filed with the Delaware Chancery Court and alleges
that Dinesh and the rest of the company's board severely
undervalued Harman when they agreed to be acquired by Samsung for
$8 billion in November. Due to that claim, the plaintiffs are
accusing the company's board of directors of violating their
fiduciary duty as they allegedly weren't acting in the best
interest of Harman's shareholders. Samsung and Harman have yet to
comment on this report, but a potential class action lawsuit could
potentially jeopardize their merger which has yet to be approved
by shareholders and regulators.

Some Harman shareholders have previously voiced their concerns
over the deal, also due to the belief that the South Korean tech
giant should pay more than $8 billion to acquire the US
manufacturer of connected car systems. It has yet to be determined
whether this is the same group of people who have now filed a
lawsuit against their own board. At the moment, the only known
plaintiff is one Robert Pine. Apart from seeking damages, the
lawsuit criticizes Harman's agreement to not consider other offers
while Samsung is finalizing the transaction. A portion of the
company's shareholders unrelated to this lawsuit is also
reportedly planning to vote against the deal, though it isn't
likely there will be enough votes opposing the merger to stop
Samsung from acquiring Harman.

Additionally, some Samsung officials are allegedly worried that
the company's attempt to purchase a controlling stake in Harman
could be jeopardized by a recent corruption scandal in South
Korea, Yonhap News Agency reports. Samsung is currently being
investigated in its home country over allegations that it bribed a
confidante of President Park with the goal of facilitating its
acquisition of Cheil Industries in 2015. The South Korean tech
giant wants to acquire Harman as a part of its push into connected
car components market. While the company has recently been
streamlining its operations, its leadership believes the
automotive electronics industry can be a massive future revenue
stream. Due to that conviction, Samsung decided to go through with
acquiring Harman despite mostly downsizing its business portfolio
in recent months.

KANE CO: Faces "Cotman" Adversary Suit Over WARN Act Violations
---------------------------------------------------------------
Jamar Cotman, Brian Hill, and Stephen Renshaw, on their own behalf
and on behalf of all other persons similarly situated, filed an
adversary proceeding against and in the bankruptcy case of The
Kane Company.

The Adversary Proceeding is captioned as Jamar Cotman, Brian Hill,
and Stephen Renshaw v. The Kane Company, Case No. 17-00015, in the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland (Baltimore).

The Kane Company, a family-owned moving company based in Elkridge,
Maryland, filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition (Bankr. D. Md.
Case No. 16-26665) on December 22, 2016.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter on Jan. 13,
2017, a trio of former Kane Co. employees, including one who
worked for the Elkridge-based mover for more than 25 years, has
filed a class-action complaint stemming from the mover's abrupt
shutdown and subsequent bankruptcy.

The three are among more than 900 employees impacted when Kane
shut down Dec. 9, according to the lawsuit. The plaintiffs allege
in court documents that Kane Co. deliberately violated the federal
Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act by failing to
give 60-day advance notice.

MUSCLE MILK: NY Judge Dismisses Slack-Fill Suit
-----------------------------------------------
Melissa Busch at Legal news Wire reports a putative class action
lawsuit against the maker of Muscle Milk protein powder has been
dismissed by a Southern District of New York judge.

Plaintiff Orlando Bautista alleged that he was surprised to find
about one-third of the Muscle Milk protein powder container he
bought from the California-based supplement manufacturer Cytosport
was empty. According to his lawsuit, allegedly selling Muscle Milk
protein powder with "nonfunctional slack-fill" violated New York
state consumer fraud laws, fraud, negligent misrepresentation and
unjust enrichment.

Lawrence I. Weinstein, partner and co-chair of the intellectual
property litigation group and co-chair of the false advertising
and trademark practice at Proskauer, told Legal Newsline that the
judge's decision is one of several recent decisions granting
motions to dismiss consumer class action false advertising cases,
including at least one other slack-fill decision.

Judge Cathy Seibel's decision was based on U.S. Supreme Court and
federal appellate court's rules "holding that conclusory
allegations in a complaint are not to be accepted as true on a
motion to dismiss under Fed. R. Civ P. 8(a) and 9(b)," Weinstein
said.

"When a complaint's allegations about a central element of a claim
for relief -- here, that the empty space in a container of Muscle
Milk has no functional purpose -- are wholly conclusory, the
complaint must be dismissed," Weinstein said. "In the Bautista v.
Cytosport case decided by Judge Seibel, the complaint alleged that
the empty space in the Muscle Milk containers was nonfunctional,
but did not assert any specific fact that, if credited, would
plausibly establish the truth of that assertion."

The judge found that Bautista's assertion that the 30-percent
empty space in the container was not used "to protect product --
necessary for enclosing the product or because of settling -" was
not supported by facts and the statement was provided in a
conclusory fashion, according to court records.

Weinstein believes the judge's analysis of the case was correct,
so he did not find the dismissal surprising.

"When the Supreme Court decided Bell Atlantic v. Twombly 10 years
ago, and Ashcroft v. Iqbal two years later, it meant to prevent
federal court dockets from being bogged down by civil lawsuits
based only on conclusory allegations," Weinstein said. "

Counsel for defendants in all class action false advertising cases
-- not just slack-fill cases -- should always ask themselves as
they read a complaint whether the plaintiff is a percipient
witness as to all the necessary allegations of the complaint, or
has otherwise set forth in the complaint specific facts to support
each element of each cause of action."

Weinstein said the plaintiff did not have "any other basis for
knowing the rationale for the defendant's' decision to employ
slack space in its Muscle Milk containers, and thus lacked a
plausible basis to allege that the empty space was nonfunctional,
and therefore deceptive. This is a relatively common defect in
class action false advertising cases, and whenever it is present,
defendants should rely heavily on this failing in motions to
dismiss the complaint.""

Though this slack-fill case was unsuccessful, Weinstein said other
companies have decided to settle, including Proctor & Gamble and
Starkist Tuna.

NESTLE U.S.A.: "Hafer" Suit Alleges False Advertising of Products
-----------------------------------------------------------------
SANDY HAFER, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. NESTLE U.S.A., INC., Defendant, Case No.
2:17-cv-00034 (C.D. Cal., January 3, 2016), is a purported
consumer protection and false advertising lawsuit based on
Defendant's alleged misleading business practices with respect to
the packaging and sale of its box packaged Raisinets(R) brand
products, including Nestle Milk Chocolate Raisinets and Nestle
Dark Chocolate Raisinets.

According to the complaint, Defendant packaged and sold the
Products in opaque box packaging that conceals from consumers the
amount of Raisinets candies inside the box packaging. The
Products' packaging leads the reasonable consumer to believe he or
she is purchasing a box full of Raisinets candies.  In reality,
the Products are uniformly under-filled -- approximately only 60%
of each of the Products' packaging is filled with Raisinets
candies.

Nestle USA, Inc. produces and markets food and beverage products
in the United States.

NOVO NORDISK: Faces Class Action Over Collusive Price Fixing
------------------------------------------------------------
Eric Sagonowsky at Fierce Pharma reports that while all of
biopharma felt the sting of tough talk from President-elect Donald
Trump, Novo Nordisk faced some fresh concerns of its own.

A New York law firm said it filed a class action suit against the
Danish pharma for its role in alleged "collusive price fixing,"
two months after U.S. lawmakers called for an investigation into
the insulin market.

On behalf of a Pennsylvania county's public retirement system,
Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann sued Novo, CFO Jesper
Brandgaard and former CEO Lars Rebien Sorensen, alleging the
company "reported materially false and misleading earnings and
forecasts" that were "inflated" by price fixing.

The suit also claims the drugmaker "misrepresented and concealed
the true extent" of intense payer pricing pressures, which have
been dragging on insulin makers for some time now.

Novo said it's "aware of the complaint" but does "not comment on
ongoing lawsuits."

The company's shares fell on the news, tracking with most of the
sector as comments made by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump
rattled investor sentiment. Trump lambasted the industry for
"getting away with murder" and promised to institute competitive
bidding to bring down drug prices.

The Novo lawsuit comes shortly after frequent pharma critics Sen.
Bernie Sanders and Rep. Elijah Cummings asked the Justice
Department and Federal Trade Commission to look into whether
insulin makers Eli Lilly, Novo Nordisk and Sanofi have been
colluding on price increases.

"Not only have these pharmaceutical companies raised insulin
prices significantly -- sometimes by double digits overnight -- in
many instances the prices have apparently increased in tandem,"
the lawmakers wrote at the time.

In a blog post about pharmacy benefits managers (PBMs) and their
role in Novo's price increases, Jakob Riis, Novo's head of North
America operations, said the company "monitored market conditions
to ensure our prices were competitive with other medicines as part
of our business model."

Adamantly denying the price-fixing charge, Lilly responded that a
complex reimbursement system places an unfair burden on diabetes
patients. "The insulin market in the U.S. is highly competitive,"
the Indianapolis-based drugmaker said. Even though insulin prices
have gone way up in recent years, drugmakers aren't collecting
that payday, Eli Lilly has argued. Instead, it's the PBMs.

For its part, Novo is no stranger to those pressures amid an
ongoing wave of attention to the industry's price-hiking ways. The
company said last month that it would limit itself to single-digit
percentage increases.


NOVO NORDISK: March 13 Lead Plaintiff Bid Deadline
--------------------------------------------------
Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP alerts investors in Novo Nordisk
A/S (NYSE:NVO) to the securities class action lawsuit filed in the
U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey and to the
March 13, 2017 Lead Plaintiff deadline.

and October 27, 2016 and suffered over $200,000 in losses contact

or contact Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm's investigation,

After repeatedly assuring investors of sales and profit growth,

earnings and slashed long-term profit-growth forecasts by 50% on
October 28, 2016.  In addition, NVO revealed it was being
investigated by the U.S. Attorney's Office for potentially
improper arrangements with pharmacy benefits managers who purchase
NVO's insulin products.  This news drove the price of the
Company's ADRs down approximately 13%.

"We're focused on NVO's insulin--and other--pricing matters and
Defendants' growth-related statements," said Hagens Berman partner
Reed Kathrein.

PARKATLANTA: Faces Suit Over Invalid Tickets
--------------------------------------------
Rebekka Schramm at WTOC reports attorneys officially filed a
class-action lawsuit on January 11 against the company that
monitors curbside parking in the city of Atlanta.

The suit claims PARKatlanta employees routinely issued parking
tickets knowing they were invalid.

"They had knowledge that the system didn't work correctly," said
Eddie Key, one of the attorneys who filed the suit. "So if you
have knowledge that the system doesn't work correctly and you
instruct your employees to continue to give tickets, then you are
knowingly violating your own policy."

Key said he has numerous complainants and whistleblowers who are
ready to testify against PARKatlanta.

"We have a tape that specifically states that employees knew that
their devices weren't working correctly," Key said.

Representatives of PARKatlanta did not immediately return calls or
an email seeking comment.

PARKAtlanta contract ends in March

Since Mayor Kasim Reed confirmed he'd bid out the contract for
parking management in the city, the city has announced a
replacement.

PARKAtlanta's contract went month-to-month in October 2016. With
the new company picked, they're set to take over in March. The new
contract, according to the mayor's office, aims to generate $7
million in revenue for the city, about $1.5 million more than
PARKAtlanta's contract did.

Critics say that's concerning.

"When you turn over a public safety function to a private company,
it's very easy for the situation to become predatory and I think
that's what happened to PARKatlanta," said State Senator Vincent
Fort.

Complaints, internal and external, persisted throughout contract

Since PARKAtlanta started regulating street parking in the city of
Atlanta, they've been the dogged by numerous complaints, both
officially and privately.

In 2012, two insiders spoke to CBS46, saying the company was
predatory in their ticket-writing practices, imposing quotas on
employees of 6-8 tickets per hour.

"At PARKatlanta they are vultures. The only thing they are
concerned with at the end of the day is ticket count," a former
PARKatlanta employee said in 2012.

SAMSUNG: Faces Suit Over Potentially Dangerous Washing Machines
---------------------------------------------------------------
Jeff Rossen and Anneke Foster at Today reports that last November,
Samsung announced it was recalling nearly 3 million defective
washing machines. But now some consumers say the washers are still
dangerous even after the company vowed to fix them.

Those washing machines are in millions of homes right now. Some
have shaken so violently that they explode. At least nine
homeowners have reported injuries, including one report of a
broken jaw.

Now some consumers are saying that Samsung is botching the recall,
leaving them with potentially dangerous machines and no way out.

"I've called numerous times, but I never get any calls back," the
owner of one washing machine affected by the recall told TODAY
national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen.

Another washer owner, Britney Quimby, a mother of three, said,
"I'm afraid to do laundry because it could hurt my kids."

Lori Andrus, Esq. -- lori.andrus@andrusanderson.com -- with Andrus
Anderson LLP, an attorney advising on a proposed class action suit
against Samsung, called the affected washing machines "ticking
time bombs in people's homes. It might not have gone off yet; it
might go off on the very next load."

In a statement to NBC News, Samsung said:

"Our in-home repair has been tested and validated by an
independent engineering firm, and approved by the Consumer Product
Safety Commission. We have successfully completed hundreds of
thousands of in-home repairs. Consumers who choose the in-home
repair are provided an additional one year warranty regardless of
the age of their washer.

We have directly contacted more than two million consumers and
have multiple ways for them to reach us. Wait time for callers is
an average of 20 seconds. Repairs on average are completed in 7
business days. We encourage anyone who has an affected washer to
contact us at 1-866-264-5636 or at samsung.com/us/tlw."

SEATTLE GENETICS: March 13 Lead Plaintiff Bid Deadline
------------------------------------------------------
The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional
Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been
commenced in the United States District Court for the Western
District of Washington on behalf of purchasers of Seattle Genetics
Inc. (SGEN) ("Seattle Genetics" or the "Company") securities
during the period between October 27, 2016 and December 23, 2016,
inclusive (the "Class Period").  Investors who wish to become
proactively involved in the litigation have until March 13, 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 Seattle Genetics 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 Seattle Genetics'
vadastuximab talirine presents a significant risk of fatal
hepatotoxicity and that the Company had overstated the viability
of vadastuximab talirine as a treatment for acute myeloid leukemia
("AML").

According to the complaint, following a December 27, 2016 press
release announcing that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration had
placed a clinical hold or partial clinical hold on several early
stage trials of vadastuximab talirine to evaluate the potential
risk of hepatotoxicity, the value of Seattle Genetics shares
declined significantly.

If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment
in Seattle Genetics securities purchased on or after October 27,
2016 and held through the revelation of negative information
during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to
learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a
lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please visit

shareholders and others.

securities and other class action cases and have been advocating
for the rights of shareholders since the 1980s.  If you choose to
retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial
obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your
choice.  You need take no action at this time to be a member of
the class.

Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP ("GPM") announces that a class action
lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased
StoneMor Partners L.P. ("StoneMor" or the "Company") (NYSE: STON)
securities between January 19, 2012 and October 27, 2016,
inclusive (the "Class Period"). StoneMor investors have until
January 20, 2017 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their StoneMor investments are
encouraged to contact Lesley Portnoy of GPM to discuss their legal
rights in this class action at 310-201-9150 or by email to
shareholders@glancylaw.com.

According to the complaint filed in this class action, during the
Class Period StoneMor made false and misleading statements and/or
failed to disclose: that the Company's reported non-GAAP financial
metrics were materially misleading and concealed the truth about
the Company's true financial condition; that the main purpose of
StoneMor's regular debt and equity offerings were to pay
distributions to unitholders instead of pay down indebtedness
under the Company's revolving credit facility as publicly stated;
and that as a result of the above stated, the Company's statements
about its business, operations, and prospects were false and
misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On September 2, 2016, StoneMor disclosed that it would restate its
financials to correct numerous mistakes. Shortly thereafter, on
October 27, 2016, StoneMor reduced its quarterly cash distribution
by 50%, and on October 28, 2016 StoneMor's share price fell over
44%.

Then on November 9, 2016, StoneMor announced that it would also be
amending its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31,
2015, as well as its Forms 10-Q for the quarters ended on June 30,
2016 and March 31, 2016. On this news, shares of StoneMor fell
over 5% to close at just $8.57 per share on November 9, 2016,
thereby injuring investors.

If you purchased shares of StoneMor during the Class Period you
may move the Court no later than January 20, 2017 to ask the Court
to appoint you as lead plaintiff if you meet certain legal
requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any
action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take
no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish to
learn more about this action, or if you have any questions

TG THERAPEUTICS: March 13 Lead Plaintiff Motion Deadline Set
------------------------------------------------------------
Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC, notifies investors that a
class action lawsuit has been filed against TG Therapeutics, Inc.
("TG Therapeutics" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: TGTX) and certain of
its officers, and is on behalf of a class consisting of all
persons or entities who purchased TG Therapeutics securities
between September 15, 2014 and October 12, 2016, both dates
inclusive (the "Class Period"). Such investors are advised to join
this case by visiting the firm's site: http://www.bgandg.com/tgtx.

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").

TG Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company that manufactures,
develops and markets new treatments for B-cell, malignancies and
autoimmune diseases. The Company develops TG-1101 and TGR-1202,
two treatments against hematological malignancies and autoimmune
diseases. The Complaint further suggests that on September 17,
2015, TG Therapeutics announced that the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) had contacted them due to a Special Protocol
Assessment on the make of a Phase 3 clinical trial for TG-1101 and
TGR-1202.

This Phase 3 trial, the GENUINE trial, was to demonstrate that TG-
1101 could prove a surge in the total response rate and
progression-free survival ("PFS") in 330 existing patients with
certain cancer cell mutations.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the class period, defendants
failed to disclose material information regarding the Phase 3
trial, and instead hyped that it is the "best-in-class" treatment,
"successful" and "a novel chemo-free treatment option."
Furthermore, TG Therapeutics did not set up an adequate screening
mechanism in the GENUINE enrolling sites and did not enroll
patients at the required rate for the study to be successful.
Additionally, the trial did not attract 330 patients, contrary to
TG Therapeutics' statements.

On October 13, 2016, TG Therapeutics announced that it filed an
amended protocol with the Food and Drug Administration for its
leukemia drug combination, GENUINE Phase 3 Trial, and revealed
that it no longer benefits from its previously negotiated Special
Protocol Assessment with the FDA. Following this news, TG
Therapeutics, stock dropped about $0.38 per share to close at
$6.85 on that same day.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to
review a copy of the Complaint you can visit the firm's site:
http://www.bgandg.com/tgtxor you may contact Peretz Bronstein,
Esq. or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz of Bronstein,
Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484. If you suffered a loss in
TG Therapeutics you have until March 13, 2017 to request that the
Court appoint you as lead plaintiff.  Your ability to share in any
recovery doesn't require that you serve as a lead plaintiff.

No class has been certified in the above action yet. Until
certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. You
may choose to take no action and remain a passive class member.

TG Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company that manufactures,
develops, and markets new treatments for B-cell, malignancies, and
autoimmune diseases within the United Stated. The Company produces
two treatments against hematological malignancies and autoimmune
diseases, TG-1101 and TGR-1202. The Complaint suggests that on
September 17, 2015, TG Therapeutics announced that the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) had contacted them due to a Special
Protocol Assessment on the make of a Phase 3 clinical trial for
TG-1101 and TGR-1202.

This Phase 3 trial, the GENUINE trial, was to demonstrate that TG-
1101 could demonstrate a surge in the overall response rate and
progression-free survival ("PFS") in 330 existing patients with
certain cancer cell mutations.

As per the Complaint, TG Therapeutics officials failed to disclose
important information regarding the Phase 3 trial, instead
informing shareholders that it is the "best-in-class" treatment,
"successful", and "a novel chemo-free treatment option."
Furthermore, TG Therapeutics did not put forth an adequate
screening mechanism in the GENUINE enrolling sites and did not
enroll patients at the required rate for the study to be
successful. Lastly, the trial did not attract 330 patients,
contrary to the Company's statements.

On October 13, 2016, TG Therapeutics put out a statement revealing
that it had put out an amended GENUINE Phase 3 trial protocol with
the FDA. The same day, TheStreet released an article suggesting
that TG Therapeutics has a long history of poor management. The
article also showed that the Company halted enrollment for the
GENUINE trial by a third, removed important efficacy endpoints,
and generally exposed the company to more risk. When this
information was revealed to the public, TG Therapeutics' stock
declined almost 27%, causing investors severe harm.


THERANOS INC: Arizona AG Preparing to Sue Company
-------------------------------------------------
Sy Mukherjee at Fortune reports that it may be time to add another
lawsuit to Silicon Valley upstart Theranos' troubles.
Documents from Arizona's Attorney General's office indicate that
the state is preparing to sue Elizabeth Holmes' once-vaunted, now-
dwindling blood testing outfit, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The specific files are bidding proposals for outside counsel to
represent the state in a lawsuit.

"The purpose of this contract is to retain Outside Counsel to aid
the Arizona Attorney General's Office (the AGO) in commencing
legal action against Theranos, Inc. and its closely related
subsidiaries for violations of the Arizona Consumer Fraud Act
arising out of Theranos Inc.'s long-running scheme of deceptive
acts and misrepresentations relating to the capabilities and
operation of Theranos blood testing equipment, including but not
limited to deceptive acts and misrepresentations made to Arizona
consumers in connection with Theranos Wellness Centers in Arizona
and California," states the document.

Theranos operated about 40 "Wellness Centers" where it offered its
blood testing services -- services that ostensibly used diagnostic
tech that Theranos claimed was revolutionary, but thousands of
whose results the company had to eventually void for inaccuracies.
The firm eventually decided to shut down its Wellness Centers and
slash its workforce nearly in half in order to concentrate on a
different technology called the "miniLab."

Theranos is already facing a consumer class action suit over the
inaccurate diagnostic results; a breach of contract suit by former
partner Walgreens (WBA, -0.12%); and an investor class action
alleging "continuous lies from the company's CEO."Theranos told
Fortune that is has "no comment" on the potential suit, and
emphasized that it denies the allegations in the various other
lawsuits currently under way.


WATTS REGULATOR: April 12 Settlement Fairness Hearing Set
---------------------------------------------------------
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA

If You Have a Watts Water Heater Connector or a FloodSafe Brand
Connector You Could Get Benefits from Two Class Action Settlements

This Notice may affect your rights. Please read it carefully.

1. Why is this Notice being provided?

A Court authorized this Notice because you have a right to know
about proposed Settlements of two class action lawsuits, and to
know your options before the Court decides whether to give final
approval to the Settlements.  This Notice explains the lawsuits,
the Settlements, your legal rights, what benefits are available,
who may be eligible for those benefits, and how to get them.

There are two separate class actions in which proposed settlements
have been reached.  The Water Heater connector Settlement was made
in the case of Sharp, et al. v. Watts Regulator Co., Case No.
8:16-cv-00200-JFB-TDT, which alleged that Watts' Water Heater
connectors and warnings on those connectors were defective. The
FloodSafe Settlement resolves the case Klug, et al. v. Watts
Regulator Co., Case No. 8:15-cv-00061-JFB-TDT, which alleged that
FloodSafe connectors and warnings on these connectors were
defective.  The Honorable Joseph F. Bataillon of the United States
District Court for the District of Nebraska is overseeing the
Water Heater and FloodSafe connector class actions.  The people
who sued are called the "Plaintiffs" and the company being sued,
Watts Regulator Co. ("Watts"), is the "Defendant."

2. What are these lawsuits about?
The lawsuits allege that Watts:

   -- Designed, manufactured, distributed, marketed and/or sold
Water Heater and FloodSafe connectors that were defective;
   -- Knew of the defective condition of these connectors; and
   -- Failed to provide warnings to prevent failure of the
connectors.

The lawsuits allege that Watts' actions led to the failure of the
Water Heater and FloodSafe connectors.  The lawsuits ask for
replacement connectors to be provided to those who purchased
Water Heater and FloodSafe connectors and for money to be paid to
those who paid to repair property damage as a result of the
failure of the connectors.  Watts denies all the claims and
allegations in the lawsuits.  Watts maintains that its Water
Heater and FloodSafe connectors are not defective in any respect
and that any failures are the result of other factors (such as
improper installation, misuse, or products being at the end of
their lifespan).  Watts has successfully defended itself on these
grounds in the past.

3. What is a class action?
In a class action, one or more people called "Class
Representatives" sue on behalf of all people who have similar
claims.  All of these people are the "Class" or "Settlement Class
Members."  A single court resolves the issues for all Settlement
Class Members, except for those who exclude themselves from the
Settlements (see Question 16).


4. Why is there a Settlement?

The Courts did not decide in favor of Plaintiffs or Watts.
Instead, both sides agreed to settle these cases to avoid the cost
and risk of further litigation and trial.  The Settlements do not
mean that any law was broken or that Watts did anything wrong.
Watts denies all legal claims and allegations in
this case.  The Class Representatives and their lawyers think the
Settlements are best for all Settlement Class Members.

WHO ARE IN THE SETTLEMENTS

To see if you will be affected by the Settlements or if you can
get a payment from it, you need to decide if you are a Settlement
Class Member.

5. Am I part of the Settlement?

The Settlements include anyone who owns or owned (or leases or
leased) a residence or other structure located in the United
States containing a Watts Water Heater or FloodSafe connector
after November 4, 2008.  This includes any person or entity that
suffered property damage and/or paid to repair property damage
caused by the failure of a Watts Water Heater or a FloodSafe
connector.

The Settlement Class, as approved by the Court, is formally
defined as follows:

"All individuals and entities that own or owned, or lease or
leased a residence or other structure located in the United States
containing a Water Heater or a FloodSafe Connector after November
4, 2008."

6. How do I know if I have a Watts Water Heater or FloodSafe
connector?

The following can help you identify whether you may have a Water
Heater or a FloodSafe connector covered by these Settlements:

   -- A FloodSafe connector must have a FloodSafe automatic water
shutoff device on the connector.

   -- A Water Heater connector must have a red disc between the
crimp and fitting at each end of the connector.

A label attached to either a FloodSafe or Water Heater connector
that identifies Watts, Watts Regulator, Anderson Barrows, Savard,
Everbilt, Ace Hardware, Wolverine Brass, Do-It-Best,
Grainger, CalFlex, MainLine, Aqua-Flo, Belanger, Danco,
Flexconnex, Diamond Back, Lincoln, Mabe, PlumbMaster, PlumBest,
PurePro, Kenney, Electrolux or Kenmore may qualify if the
connector has the above physical features.

7. Are there exceptions to being included in the Settlements?

Yes. The following are not included in the Settlements:

   -- Anyone who resolved their Watts Water Heater or FloodSafe
connector claims through settlement or final judgment
   -- Watts and their affiliates
   -- Anyone who sold or distributed a Watts connector, unless
they actually installed a Water Heater or a FloodSafe connector in
its premises
   -- The presiding judge and his immediate family
   -- Anyone who timely requests to be excluded from the Class

8. What if I am not sure whether I am included in the Settlements?

If you are not sure whether you are in the Settlement Class, or
have any other questions about the Settlement, call 877-845-3575
or visit www.ConnectorSettlements.com. Or you may write to
Connector Claims Administrator, P.O. Box 4259, Portland, OR 97208-
4259.

9. Who can file a claim under the Settlements?

To be eligible to file a claim for a payment under the
Settlements, a Settlement Class Member must own a Water Heater or
a FloodSafe connector, or had property damage and/or paid to
repair property damage as a result of a failed Watts Water Heater
or FloodSafe connector.

SETTLEMENT BENEFITS -- WHAT YOU GET IF YOU QUALIFY

10. What are the benefits of the Settlements?

Under these Settlements, Watts will pay $14 million ($10 million
into a settlement fund for Water Heater connectors and $4 million
into a settlement fund for FloodSafe connectors).  After the cost
of all notice, administration, litigation expenses, and attorneys'
fees are paid out of this fund, the rest
will be distributed to Settlement Class Members who file claims as
described below:

Water Heater or
FloodSafe
connector

Property damages
due to failure of a
Water Heater or
FloodSafe
connector

Replacement of Connectors

For eligible claims submitted within one year of final approval of
the Settlements, Settlement Class Members can receive a cash
payment of $10 for each Water Heater and FloodSafe connector (up
to two water heater connectors and two FloodSafe connectors per
residence or other structure) that they replace.  The maximum cash
payment for replacement of connectors is $40.

To receive a payment, you must provide proof that you own or
possess a Watts Water Heater or FloodSafe connector by providing:
(1) a label for the connector or a photo of the connector's label
or the connector itself and (2) a receipt for purchasing the
replacement connector.  There is no restriction on what brand
connector you purchase to replace your Watts Water Heater or
FloodSafe connector.

Payment of Property Damages Due to Failure
For eligible claims, Settlement Class Members can recover up to
25% of documented costs of repairs for property damage caused by
the failure of a Watts Water Heater or FloodSafe connector, with a
minimum recovery of $25.

The Claims Administrator will review claims to determine whether
they are eligible and timely, and pay the amount of the claims.
Claims for damage that occurred from November 4, 2008 to November
4, 2014 must be submitted within one year after final approval of
the Settlements.  Claims for damage that occurred after November
4, 2014, must be made within four years after final approval.
Valid claims will be paid once a year throughout the four-year
claims period.

Money will be added to the settlement fund in installments.  If
the amount of approved claims is greater than the amount of money
available in the settlement fund, the Claims Administrator will
reduce the initial payments made to Settlement Class Members to an
amount less than 25% of their approved Claim to make sure that all
eligible Settlement Class Members receive a payment.  If money is
left in the fund at the end of the annual payment process, the
Claims Administrator may provide a "catch up" payment to
Settlement Class Members whose payments had been reduced to
proportionally increase their total payment amounts. These
payments will not exceed 25% of the property damage for each
Claim.

To support your claim, you must submit the following
documentation:

   -- A completed Claim Form
   -- All proofs of payment for repair of property damage caused
by a failed Water Heater or FloodSafe connector
   -- The Watts Water Heater or FloodSafe connector; all available
labels, packaging; photographs of the connector and the
characteristics that qualify it as a Watts product; and any
purchase receipts for the Water Heater or FloodSafe connector

HOW TO GET A PAYMENT

11. What do I need to do to participate in the Settlements?

Follow the instructions on the Claim Form to receive a payment
under these Settlements.  All Claim Forms must be submitted along
with any necessary supporting documentation or information.
Claims may be submitted online or mailed by first-class United
States Mail, postage prepaid, to the Claims Administrator:
Connector Claims Administrator, P.O. Box 4259, Portland, OR 97208-
4259.

You cannot submit your Claim Form and accompanying materials by
telephone.  Even if you submit your claim form online, you must
mail the Watts Water Heater or FloodSafe connector, or other
qualifying evidence confirming that the connector is a Watts
product, to the Claims Administrator.  If you change your address
and want to receive a Claim Form or any payment owed to you at
your new address, you should notify the Claims Administrator of
your new address by sending written notice of your change of
address to the Claims Administrator at the address above.

Claim Forms are available online at www.ConnectorSettlements.com
or by calling 1- 877-845-3575.  Or you may request one by writing
to Connector Claims Administrator, P.O. Box 4259, Portland,
OR 97208-4259.

12. How will the claims process work?

Validation of Claims for Benefits. The Claims Administrator will
start reviewing all timely Claim Forms after the final approval of
the Settlements.  The Claims Administrator will evaluate your
claim based on all the information and documentation you provided
and within written guidelines (available at
www.ConnectorSettlements.com).

Denial of Claims for Benefit. If your Claim Form and accompanying
materials do not meet all of the requirements of the Settlements,
the Claims Administrator will deny your claim as "invalid,"
you will not receive any payment, and you will be informed in
writing of that decision.  A Special Master will be available for
a Settlement Class Member filing a claim for property damage to
appeal a denial by the Claims Administrator. Instructions for
appealing a decision of the Claims Administrator for a property
damage claim will be provided with all denied claims.

Payment of Validated Claims for Benefits. If you submit a Claim
Form and the Claims Administrator determines that your Claim Form
and the accompanying materials are valid, the Claims Administrator
will send you a payment.  Payments will be made annually, but may
be broken into an initial payment and a second "catch up" payment.

No Payment Until After Appeals Are Resolved. The Claims
Administrator will not make any payments to Settlement Class
Members until the Court grants final approval of the Settlements
and until any appeals are resolved.  During the appeals process,
the Claims Administrator will continue to accept claims.

13. What am I giving up to get a payment?

If the Settlements become final, Settlement Class Members who
submit a claim or do nothing will be "releasing" Watts from all of
the Released Claims as described in paragraphs 86-93 of the
Settlement Agreements.  This means you will no longer be able to
sue Watts regarding any of the claims described in the Settlement
Agreements.

The Settlement Agreements are available at
www.ConnectorSettlements.com. The Settlement Agreements provide
more detail regarding the release and describes the released
claims with specific descriptions in necessary, accurate, legal
terminology, so read it carefully.  You can talk to the law
firms representing the Settlement Classes listed in the section
"The Lawyers Representing You" for free or you can, at your own
expense, talk to another lawyer if you have any questions about
the released claims or what they mean.

EXCLUDING YOURSELF FROM THE SETTLEMENTS

If you do not want a payment from the proposed Settlements and you
want to keep the right to sue Watts about the legal issues in
these cases, then you must take steps to get out of the
Settlements.  This is called asking to be excluded from, or
sometimes called "opting out," of the Settlement Class.

14. If I exclude myself, can I get anything from this Settlement?

No. If you exclude yourself, you may not apply for any benefits
under the Settlements and you cannot object to the proposed
Settlements.  If you are excluded, you may sue or bring a
different lawsuit against Watts in the future. You will not be
bound by these class action settlements.

15. If I do not exclude myself, can I sue later?
No. Unless you exclude yourself, you give up the right to sue
Watts for all of the claims resolved by these Settlements.  You
must exclude yourself from the Settlement Classes to start or
continue your own lawsuit relating to the claims in these cases.

16. How do I exclude myself from the Settlements?
If you do not object to the settlement, and wish to exclude
yourself from the Settlements and the Settlement Classes, you must
send the Claims Administrator a written request that contains the
following:

1. Your full name, current address, telephone number, and email
address
2. A specific request to opt out of one or both of the
Settlements
3. Whether the Watts Water Heater or FloodSafe connector failure
caused Property Damage
4. Identify the:
a. Number of Watts Water Heater and/or FloodSafe connectors that
you have (and proof that they are Watts connectors)
b. Date of purchase or installation of any failed Water Heater or
FloodSafe connector
c. Date of failure and an estimate of the amount of damages
5. Your signature (even if represented by an attorney) and the
date on which you signed it
6. If you are an insurer, the written consent of your insured or
a sworn statement that the insurer is
the legal owner of the claim with the right to control the claim
7. Your attorney's signature, if you are represented by counsel

You must mail your completed request for exclusion by March 7,
2017 to: Connector Claims Administrator, P.O. Box 4259, Portland,
OR 97208-4259

If you do not file your request on time and include the
information above, you will remain a Settlement Class Member. That
means you will lose any opportunity to exclude yourself from the
Settlement(s), and your rights will be determined in this lawsuit
by the Settlement Agreement(s), if it receives final judicial
approval.

You cannot ask to be excluded on the phone, by email, or at the
website.

THE LAWYERS REPRESENTING YOU

17. Do I have a lawyer in this case?

The Court named Shanon J. Carson of Berger & Montague, P.C., Bryan
L. Clobes of Cafferty Clobes Meriwether & Sprengel LLP, Gregory F.
Coleman of Greg Coleman Law, P.C. and Joseph G. Sauder
of McCune Wright LLP as Lead Counsel.  The Court also named other
attorneys to protect your interests and a full list of those
attorneys is available at www.ConnectorSettlements.com. You will
not be charged for these lawyers.  If you want to be represented
by your own lawyer in this case, you may hire one at your own
expense.

If you hire your own attorney, your attorney must file an
appearance with the Clerk of Court, and must send a copy, by
first-class United States Mail, to Class Counsel and Watts'
counsel at the addresses in Question 19, postmarked no later than
March 7, 2017.  If you do not exclude yourself from the
Settlements, you will continue to be a Settlement Class Member,
even if you are represented by your own attorney.  You will be
responsible for any fees and costs charged by your own attorney.

18. How will the administrative costs and attorneys' fees be paid?

Watts agreed to pay the costs of class notice and claims
administration, including the costs of mailing this Notice and of
distributing any payments owed to Settlement Class Members under
the Settlements.  If the Settlements are approved by the Court,
Class Counsel will ask the Court for reasonable attorneys' fees
and reimbursement of litigation costs of up to 30% of the gross
settlement amount.  Also, Class Counsel will ask the Court for a
service award of $5,000 to each Class Representative.

OBJECTING TO THE SETTLEMENTS

19. How do I tell the Court if I do not like the Settlements?
If you do not exclude yourself from the Settlement Classes, you
may object to the certification of the Settlement Classes, to the
terms of the proposed Settlements, or to Class Counsel's request
for attorneys' fees, expenses or the request for service awards.
To do so, you (or your own attorney) must provide your objection

If you do not file your objection on time and include the
information above, you will lose the opportunity to have your
objection considered at the Fairness Hearing.  You will also not
be able to object to approval of the Settlements or appeal any of
the Courts' decisions in connection with the Settlements.

20. What is the difference between objecting and asking to be
excluded?

Objecting is simply telling the Court that you do not like
something about the Settlement.  You can object only if you stay
in the Settlement Classes.  Excluding yourself is telling the
Court that you do not want to be part of the Settlement Classes.
If you exclude yourself, you cannot object to the Settlements and
you will not be eligible to apply for any benefits under the
Settlements because the cases no longer affect you.

THE COURT'S FAIRNESS HEARING

21. When and where will the Court decide whether to approve the
Settlements?

On April 12, 2017, at 1:30 p.m., the Court will hold a public
hearing in Courtroom #3 of the United States District Court for
the District of Nebraska, located at the U.S. Courthouse, 111
South 18th Plaza, Omaha, Nebraska 68102.  The Court will decide
whether the Settlement Classes were properly certified and whether
the Settlements are fair, adequate, and reasonable and should be
finally approved.  The Court will also consider Class Counsel's
request for attorneys' fees and expense reimbursement and any
objections.  This hearing may be delayed or rescheduled by the
Court without further notice to the Settlement Classes. Settlement
Class Members who object to the Settlements
are not required to attend the Fairness Hearing.  If you want to
speak in Court to object to the Settlements, either personally (or
through your own attorney), you must notify the Court of your
intention to appear at the Fairness Hearing (see Question 19).

22. Do I have to attend the Fairness Hearing?
No. Class Counsel will answer any questions the Court may have
regarding the Settlements.  However, you are welcome to attend the
hearing at your own expense.  If you send in a written
objection, you do not have to attend the Fairness Hearing to
discuss your objection.  If you mailed your written objection on
time, the Court will consider it.  Your own lawyer may attend the
Fairness Hearing at your expense, but their attendance is not
necessary.

GETTING MORE INFORMATION

23. How do I get more information?

This Notice summarizes the proposed Settlements. More details are
in the Settlement Agreements.

You can view the Settlement Agreements at
www.ConnectorSettlements.com.  You may also write
with questions to Connector Claims Administrator, P.O. Box 4259,
Portland, OR 97208-4259.  You can get a Claim Form at the website,

If you have questions for Class Counsel, you may contact them at
the address listed above in Question 19.  You may also get advice
and guidance from your own private attorney at your own
expense.

Please do not write or telephone the Court, Watts, or any Watts
sales representative or agent for information about the
Settlements or these lawsuits.


WESTERN REFINING: "Vasan" Seeks to Block Merger Deal with Tesoro
----------------------------------------------------------------
Srini Vasan, Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, Plaintiff, v. Paul L. Foster, Sigmund L. Cornelius, L.
Frederick Francis, Robert J. Hassler, Brian J. Hogan, Jeff A.
Stevens, Scott D. Weaver, Western Refining, Inc., Tesoro
Corporation, Tahoe Merger Sub 1, Inc. and Tahoe Merger Sub 2, LLC,
Defendants, Case No. 3:17-cv-00002, (W.D. Tex., January 4, 2017),
seeks to (i) enjoin Defendants from consummating a merger with
Tesoro and (ii) recover damages resulting from violations of the
Exchange Act.

Under the merger agreement, Merger Sub 1 will merge with and into
Western, with Western surviving the merger as a wholly owned
subsidiary of Tesoro. Western will then be merged with and into
Merger Sub 2, with Merger Sub 2 surviving as a wholly owned
subsidiary of Tesoro. Western stockholders will receive $37.30 per
share of Western stock or receive 0.4350 shares of Tesoro.

Plaintiff alleges that this is 24.4% lower than Western's 52-Week
high of $46.65 per share, and that the Company's financial
advisor, Barclays, earned millions in fees.

Western Refining, Inc. is a Delaware corporation that is
headquartered in El Paso, Texas. Western is an independent
refining and marketing company with retail service stations and
convenience stores in Arizona, Colorado, Minnesota, New Mexico,
Texas and Wisconsin. Paul L. Foster, Sigmund L. Cornelius, L.

ZIMMER BIOMET: Jan. 31 Lead Plaintiff Bid Deadline
--------------------------------------------------
Accesswire reports that Khang & Khang LLP (the "Firm") announces a
class action lawsuit against Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc.
("Zimmer" or the "Company") (NYSE: ZBH). Investors, who purchased
or otherwise acquired shares between September 7, 2016 and October
31, 2016 inclusive (the "Class Period"), are encouraged to contact
the Firm in advance of the January 31, 2017 lead plaintiff motion
deadline.

If you purchased shares of Zimmer during the Class Period, please
contact Joon M. Khang, Esquire, of Khang & Khang, 18101 Von Karman
Avenue, 3rd Floor, Irvine, CA 92612, by telephone: (949) 419-3834,
or by e-mail at joon@khanglaw.com.

There has been no class certification in this case yet. Until
certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. You
may choose to take no action and remain a passive class member.

The complaint states that 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 alleges the following: 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 realize its revenues and profit as expected
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 sent 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 claims 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 phone meeting with investors after 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."

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.

or if you have questions concerning this notice or your rights,
please contact Joon M. Khang, a prominent litigator for almost two
decades, by telephone: (949) 419-3834, or by e-mail at
