2JR PIZZA: "Stidham" Suit Seeks Unpaid Minimum Wages Under FLSA
--------------------------------------------------------------
ROBERT STIDHAM, individually and on behalf of similarly situated
persons, the Plaintiff, v. 2JR PIZZA ENTERPRISES, LLC, the
Defendant, Case No. 1:17-cv-00105-JMS-DML (S.D. Ind., Jan. 11,
2017), seeks to recover, under the Fair Labor Standards Act
(FLSA), unpaid minimum wages owed to himself and similarly
situated delivery drivers employed by Defendant at its Pizza Hut
stores.

According to the complaint, the Defendant employs delivery drivers
who use their own automobiles to deliver pizza and other food
items to its customers. Instead of reimbursing delivery drivers
for the reasonably approximate costs of the business use of their
vehicles, Defendant uses a flawed method to determine
reimbursement rates that provides such an unreasonably low rate
beneath any reasonable approximation of the expenses they incur
that the drivers' unreimbursed expenses cause their wages to fall
below the federal minimum wage during some or all workweeks.

The Defendant operates approximately 42 Pizza Hut franchise stores
in Indiana, Illinois, Iowa and Kentucky.

The Plaintiffs in the lawsuit captioned TONI MOLINA, ERICA TOVAR,
TARA WARD, LY NGUYEN, CONSUELO POWELL DONALD HALL, and DEBBIE
BURGESS, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated
v. ACE HOMECARE, LLC, BRL INVESTMENTS, LLC, ARTHUR BARLAAN, and
JOCELYN BARLAAN, Case No. 8:16-cv-02214-JDW-TGW (M.D. Fla.), seek
certification of two distinct classes:

   (1) WARN Act Class:

       Any employee of ACE HOMECARE, LLC in Florida who was not
       given a minimum of 60 days' written notice of termination
       and whose employment was terminated as a result of a "mass
       layoff" or "plant closing" as defined in CFR 639.3 and
       regulated by federal statute as codified under 29 U.S.C.
       Section 2101 under the Workers Adjustment and Retraining
       Notification Act of 1988. The class excludes "part-time"
       employees as defined under 29 U.S.C. Section 2101(a)(8);
       and

   (2) Unpaid Common Law Wages Class:

       Any employee of ACE HOMECARE, LLC in Florida who worked
       but was not paid all wages owed for the time period from
       February 29, 2016 to March 13, 2016. This class seeks to
       recover the difference between Florida's minimum wage and
       each putative members' salary and/or hourly wage.

The lawsuit is brought on behalf of the Plaintiffs and all other
similarly situated persons, who performed work for the Defendants
and, for the last weeks, received no pay whatsoever and were
summarily fired with no warning.  The Plaintiffs allege that the
Defendants blatantly violated the Plaintiffs' rights under the
Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act by shutting its
doors without even attempting to follow the WARN Act closure
mandates, leaving hundreds of people across the state of Florida
jobless.

The Plaintiffs also ask the Court to appoint Toni Molina as class
representative, and appoint the law firms Wenzel, Fenton, Cabassa,
P.A. and Black Rock Trial Group as class counsel.

EDWARD JENKINS: Vallejo Seeks Unpaid Min. Wages Under Labor Code
----------------------------------------------------------------
CARMEN VALLEJO, an Individual, and on behalf of herself and others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. EDWARD JENKINS REALTY, INC.,
a California corporation; and DOES 1-25, inclusive, the Defendant,
Case No. BC646366 (Cal. Super. Ct., Jan. 11, 2017), seeks to
recover compensation for unpaid minimum wages, overtime, interest
on unpaid wages, and statutory penalties for Defendant's
violations of the California Labor Code.

On February 1, 2008, the Defendant hired Plaintiff as a nonexempt
resident manager of the Marquis. The Plaintiff was required to
reside on the premises as part of her management duties and did so
at all times during her employment, from February 1, 2008 to May
31, 2016. The Plaintiff worked well over 40 hours per week.
However, the Defendant required Plaintiff to sign bi-weekly
timesheets which reflected far fewer hours worked during her
employment. The Defendant improperly credited Plaintiff's lodging
toward its minimum wage obligation to her and also allegedly
failed to pay her the minimum wage for all hours worked in
violation of the Labor Code and Wage Order independent of the
improper rent credit.

The Defendant is a property management company that oversees real
estate assets throughout Southern California, including the
Marquis Apartments, a 49-unit residential property located at 4205
W. 129th Street, Hawthorne, CA 90250.

RANDOLPH-BROOKS: Files Notice of Removal of "Walsh" Lawsuit
-----------------------------------------------------------
Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union (RBFCU) filed a Notice of
Removal to the United States District Court for the Western
District of Texas, San Antonio Division, in the case captioned
DENNIS WALSH, individually, and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. RANDOLPH BROOKS FEDERAL CREDIT UNION,
Defendants, Cause No. 16-2339-CV (25th Judicial District Court,
Guadalupe County, Texas, October 21, 2016).

relief due to RBFCU's alleged policy and practice of assessing an
overdraft fee on transactions when there was enough money in the
checking account to cover (pay for) the transactions presented for
payment. The charging for such overdraft fees allegedly breaches
RBFCU's contract with its customers.

Defendant RBFCU is a federally chartered credit union.

RITE AID: Whitten Seeks Minimum and OT Wages Under Labor Code
-------------------------------------------------------------
MARTE WHITTEN, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. RITE AID CORPORATION; a Delaware

According to the complaint, the Defendants allegedly failed to pay

wage and hour statements; failed to pay the Warehouse Employees
compensation in a timely manner upon their termination or
resignation; failed to maintain complete and accurate payroll
records for the Warehouse Employees; wrongfully withheld wages and
compensation due to the Warehouse Employees; and committed unfair
business practices in an effort to increase profits and to gain an
unfair business advantage at the expense of the Warehouse
Employees and the public.

The Plaintiff also seeks all other compensation and all benefits
required pursuant to the Employment Laws and Regulations, plus
penalties and interest, owed to Warehouse Employees.

Rite Aid is an American drugstore chain in the United States and a
Fortune 500 company headquartered in East Pennsboro Township,

SHIRE LLC: Rochester Sues Over Firm's Reverse Payment Deal
----------------------------------------------------------
ROCHESTER DRUG COOPERATIVE, INC., on behalf of itself and all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. SHIRE LLC, SHIRE
U.S., INC., ACTAVIS ELIZABETH LLC, AND ACTAVIS LLC, the Defendants
Case No. 1:17-cv-10050 (D. Mass., Jan. 11, 2017), seeks overcharge
damages arising out of Shire's unlawful agreement with Actavis not
to compete in the market for extended-release guanfacine.

The case is a civil antitrust action brought by Plaintiff on
behalf of a class of direct purchasers of the extended release
formulation of guanfacine hydrochloride (guanfacine), sold by
Shire under the brand name Intuniv (TM). Intuniv (TM)is a
prescription drug indicated for the treatment of attention-
deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents.

On April 25, 2013, Shire entered into an unlawful non-competition
agreement with Actavis. Under the agreement, Actavis agreed to
delay marketing its less-expensive generic version of Intuniv for
over a year and a half, until December 1, 2014. In exchange,
Shire agreed to pay Actavis -- and did, in fact, pay Actavis -- by
forbearing from launching an authorized generic to compete with
Actavis's generic Intuniv during its 180-day exclusivity period,
effectuating a payment of tens of millions of dollars from Shire
to Actavis. In compliance with the Agreement, even though Actavis
was granted final approval by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration to launch its less-expensive generic Intuniv on
October 5, 2012, Actavis did not come to market until
December 1, 2014.

But for Defendants' unlawful Reverse Payment Agreement, one or
more generic versions of Intuniv would have entered the market in
or around May of 2013. Thus, absent Defendants' unlawful Reverse
Payment Agreement, Plaintiff and the members of the class would
have been able to satisfy their extended-release guanfacine
requirements at significantly lower prices substantially earlier
than they did, rather than being forced to pay for brand and
generic Intuniv at higher prices because of the unlawful
agreement. The Defendants' unlawful Reverse Payment Agreement was
designed to and did in fact: (i) delay and/or preclude the entry
of less-expensive generic versions of Intuniv; (ii) delay the
introduction of an authorized generic version of Intuniv, which
otherwise would have appeared on the market at a significantly
earlier time and lowered prices further; (iii) fix, raise,
maintain or stabilize the prices of extended-release guanfacine;
(iv) permit Shire to maintain a monopoly for extended-release
guanfacine; (v) allocate 100% of the extended-release guanfacine
market in the United States, including its territories,
possessions and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, to Shire for up
to 19 months; and (vi) allocate 100% of generic Intuniv sales in
the United States, including its territories, possessions and the
Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, to Actavis for 6 months.

The Defendants thus violated the Sherman Act through their
anticompetitive Reverse Payment Agreement, which unreasonably
restrained competition in the market for extended-release
guanfacine and improperly maintained and extended Shire's market
and monopoly power by foreclosing or delaying competition from
lower-priced generic versions of Intuniv.

SYNGENTA AG: "Stracener" Suit Consolidated in MDL 2591
------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Hunter Stracener, Ronald Curtis,

Situated, the Plaintiffs, v. Syngenta AG, Syngenta Crop Protection

YAHOO! INC: "Baker" Suit Consolidated in MDL 2752
-------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Tabitha Baker, on behalf of
herself and all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v.
Yahoo! Inc., A Delaware Corporation, the Defendant, Case No. 1:16-
cv-04601, was transferred from the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of Georgia, to the U.S. District Court Northern
District of California (San Jose). The District Court Clerk
assigned Case No. 5:17-cv-00135-LHK to the proceeding. The case is
assigned to Hon. Lucy H. Koh.

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

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