ADVANCED HCS: "Williams" Suit Seeks Unpaid OT Pay Under FLSA
------------------------------------------------------------
LISA WILLIAMS ON BEHALF OF HERSELF AND ALL OTHERS SIMILARLY
SITUATED, the PLAINTIFF, v. ADVANCED HCS, LLC, BAY OAKS
SNF LLC, ELIEZER SCHEINER AND JANET HOPKINS, INDIVIDUALLY, the
DEFENDANTS, Case No. 3:17-cv-00141 (S.D. Tex., Apr. 26, 2017),
seeks to recover unpaid hourly wages, unpaid overtime
compensation, liquidated damages, attorney's fees, litigation
costs, costs of court, and pre-judgment and post-judgment interest
under the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938
(FLSA).

The Defendants own and operate a number of nursing homes in Texas.
Plaintiff worked at one of these nursing homes, Bay Oaks Health
Care Center, also known as The Lakes at Texas City, located in
Texas City, Texas. Plaintiff was one of Defendants' hourly, non-
exempt Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs). Through their
timekeeping system, Defendants would automatically dock thirty to
sixty minutes of time per day from Plaintiff's time, ostensibly
for lunch, even though Plaintiff consistently worked through
lunch. This illegal policy was not limited to just Plaintiff; it
was applied to all of Defendants' LVNs as well as to Defendants'
Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs).

The Plaintiff, on behalf of herself and all other similarly
situated non-exempt LVNs and CNAs were subjected to Defendants'
illegal docking policy.

The collective action consists of current and former hourly, non-
exempt LVNs and CNAs who worked for Defendants or their
subsidiaries in the three years preceding the filing of this suit
whose time was illegally docked for lunches they did not take. To
the extent Plaintiff, other LVNs and CNAs worked more than forty
hours in a week, they are owed time and one-half their regular
hourly rate for all time they were forced to work off-the-clock.
To the extent they did not work forty hours in every week, under a
quantum meruit cause of action, they are entitled to be paid their
regular hourly wage for such off the clock work. [BN]

The Plaintiffs were employed by Defendants as nonexempt employees.

AMERICAN FREIGHT: Faces "Leonard" Suit in Ala. Over Gender Bias
---------------------------------------------------------------
SYNETHIA LEONARD, the Plaintiff, v. AMERICAN FREIGHT MANAGEMENT
COMPANY, LLC, d/b/a AMERICAN FREIGHT FURNITURE AND MATTRESS, the
Defendant, Case No. 2:17-cv-00665-JHE (N.D. Ala., April 25, 2017),
alleges that the Defendant has intentionally, and with malice or
reckless indifference, discriminated against Plaintiff on the
basis of Plaintiff's gender, female, with respect to the terms,
conditions and privileges of employment.

In September 2013 the Plaintiff applied for a job with American
Freight at their Trussville, Alabama, location.  At the time,
Plaintiff was told by employees at the Trussville location that
there were open positions.

However the Manager, Bryan, told Plaintiff that there were no open
positions and to return in mid-November to put in an application
because he would have an open position at that time. On November
15, 2013, Plaintiff returned to American Freight and put in an
application for any open position. At this time Plaintiff was
again advised by employees at the Trussville location that
positions were open. Plaintiff was never contacted or interviewed
for any position.

An employee of the Trussville location later told Plaintiff that
the hiring Manager, Bryan, had stated that he does not hire women
because they, "voice their opinions too much and cause problems."
American Freight allegedly did not have a single female employee
at the Trussville location. Shortly after Plaintiff applied for
work with American Freight, the Defendant hired three male
employees to fill open positions. Plaintiff was equally, if not
more qualified, than the three male individuals who were hired.

American Freight is a warehouse-style furniture store that
specializes in furniture obtained through dealer cancellations and
factory closeouts.[BN]

AMERICOLLECT INC: Placeholder Bid for Class Certification Filed
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled ENEIDA JOHNSON, and LEE DEFALICO,
Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated, the
Plaintiff, v. AMERICOLLECT, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 2:17-cv-
00001-NJ (E.D. Wisc.), the Plaintiffs ask the Court to enter an
order certifying a class, appointing the Plaintiffs as class
representatives, and appointing Ademi & O'Reilly, LLP as class
counsel, and for such other and further relief as the Court may
deem appropriate.

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

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

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

PPO; Anthem UM Services, Inc.; and Does 1 through 100, inclusive,
Case No. BC657859 (Cal. Super. Ct., April 14, 2017), alleges that
the Defendants engaged in a corporate practice of conducting a
limited paper review of medical necessity requests based upon
fragmented records and a cursory review of records and that the
Defendants' review is carried out by unqualified physicians who do
not speak with the patient's healthcare providers, physicians or
surgeons, examine the patients, or collect all the relevant
records.

The Defendants are engaged in a joint venture to collectively
operate and conduct the business of providing health insurance.

entire employment period with Defendants. The lawsuit further
seeks court costs, interest and all other relief.

BARONHR INC: Bradford Seeks Unpaid Wages Under Labor Code
---------------------------------------------------------
VENZEL BRADFORD, an individual, on behalf of himself and all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. BARONHR, INC., a
Delaware Corporation; SOLVIS STAFFING SERVICES, INC., a California
Corporation; PERSONNEL STAFFING GROUP, LLC, a Florida Limited
Liability Company; 99 CENTS ONLY STORES LLC, a California Limited
Liability Company; and DOES 1 through 100, the Defendants, Case
No. pr. 659235 (Cal. Super. Ct., Apr. 26, 2017), seeks to recover
unpaid wages and penalties under California
Business and Professions Code, Labor Code, and Industrial Welfare
Commission Wage Order No. 7.

The Plaintiff has worked for Defendants as a non-exempt employee
from approximately March 2016 through approximately October 3,
2016. The Plaintiff's job duties included selecting and wrapping
products at a warehouse, which would then be loaded on a truck and
delivered to 99 Cents Only Stores throughout California. During
Plaintiffs employment with Defendants, Plaintiff routinely worked
in excess of 8 hours per workday and/or more than 40 hours per
workweek, but did not receive overtime compensation equal to one
and one-half times his regular rate of pay for working overtime
hours. Specifically, Defendants paid Plaintiff non-discretionary
incentive pay, including gain sharing funds, and other forms of
pay that cannot be excluded from the regular rate of pay
(Incentive Pay). Despite Defendants' payment of Incentive Pay to
Plaintiff, Defendants failed to include all forms of Incentive Pay
when calculating Plaintiffs regular rate of pay, thereby causing
Plaintiff to be underpaid all of his required overtime wages.
Rather, Plaintiff was only paid one-and-a-half times (or two times
in the case of double-time hours) his base hourly rate, which is
not equal to his regular rate, as Defendants failed to include the
Incentive Pay earned during corresponding time periods that are
required to be included in the regular rate, but are not.[BN]

BAYHEALTH MEDICAL: Ridley Sues over Medical Records Fees
--------------------------------------------------------
MARY BETH RIDLEY, on behalf of herself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. BAYHEALTH MEDICAL CENTER INC., d/b/a
MILFORD MEMORIAL HOSPITAL and KENT GENERAL HOSPITAL, the
Defendants, Case No. N17C-04-306 JRJ (Del Super. Ct., Apr. 26,
2017), seeks to recover damages and declaratory relief as a result
of Defendant's charges for medical records which constitute
unfair, deceptive and illegal practices that violate the Delaware
Consumer Fraud Act and other state laws.

Bayhealth maintains its patients' medical records either
predominantly or entirely in electronic format, yet they force
patients to pay exorbitant per-page amounts for copies of those
records -- the same amount they charged when the records existed
only in paper format. In response to Plaintiff's request for her
medical records in electronic format, Bayhealth gave her no choice
but to pay per-page rates that are in excess of Bayhealth's labor
supply cost.

Bayhealth Medical Center operates two hospitals: Bayhealth Kent
General in Dover and Bayhealth Milford Memorial in Milford. In
addition, it also operates the Bayhealth Emergency Center, Smyrna
in Smyrna. Bayhealth Medical Center also operates several
outpatient facilities across central and southern Delaware.[BN]

Plaintiff, v. Berks Credit & Collections, Inc., the Defendant,
Case No. 1:17-cv-02456 (E.D.N.Y., Apr. 25, 2017).

CAPITAL ONE: Placeholder Motion for Class Certification Filed
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned JENNIFER GAJEWSKI, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. CAPITAL
ONE BANK (USA), N.A., the Defendant, Case No. 2:17-cv-00601-JPS
(E.D. Wisc.), Plaintiff asks the Court to enter an order
certifying a class, appointing the Plaintiff as its
representative, and appointing Ademi & O'Reilly, LLP as its
Counsel, and for such other and further relief as the Court may
deem appropriate.

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

To avoid the risk of a defendant mooting a putative class

Circuit in Damasco instructed plaintiffs to file a certification
motion with the complaint, along with a motion to stay briefing on
the certification motion until discovery could commence. Damasco

Chapman v. First Index, Inc., 796 F.3d 783, 787 (7th Cir. 2015).

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

COOK COUNTY, IL: "Polletta" Suit Seeks Certification of 2 Classes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit titled Nicholas Polletta, individually and for a
class, the Plaintiff, v. Thomas Dart, Sheriff of Cook County, and
Cook County, Illinois, the Defendants, Case No. 1:16-cv-09492
(N.D. Ill.), the Plaintiff moves the Court to order that the case
may proceed as a class action:

under Rule 23(b)(2) for:

   "all Cook County Jail detainees who have been prescribed by a
   medical provider at the Jail and currently use a crutch,
   walker, or cane to attend court at Leighton";

and Rule 23(b)(3) for:

   "all individuals who were prescribed by a medical provider at
   the Cook County Jail and used either a crutch, walker, or cane
   to attend court at Leighton from April 25, 2015, to the date
   of judgment".

Nicholas Polletta attends court periodically at Leighton in
connection with a criminal case. Plaintiff is substantially
limited in the activity of moving from place to place and is
prescribed a cane to ambulate to Leighton by the Jail's medical
providers. The Plaintiff and the putative class contend that they
attend court each month in connection with their underlying
criminal case at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse and they are
subject to Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and
Rehabilitation Act violations because they must travel up and down
steep ramps that violate the ADA Structural Standards.

COOK COUNTY, IL: Court Affirms Judgments Suit vs. DEHE
------------------------------------------------------
Justice Mathias W. Delort of the Appellate Court of Illinois,
First District, Sixth Division, affirmed the Circuit Court's
orders, in the cases captioned DANIEL CUEVAS, Plaintiff-Appellant,
v. JOSEPH BERRIOS, in His Official Capacity as Assessor of Cook
County; and THE DEPARTMENT OF ERRONEOUS HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION
ADMINISTRATIVE HEARINGS, Defendants-Appellees; DANIEL CUEVAS,
Plaintiff-Appellee, v. JOSEPH BERRIOS, in His Official Capacity as
Assessor of Cook County; MARIA PAPPAS, in Her Official Capacity as
Treasurer of Cook County; DENNIS MICHAEL FLEMING, in His Official
Capacity as Administrative Law Judge; and THE DEPARTMENT OF
ERRONEOUS HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION ADMINISTRATIVE HEARINGS, Defendants-
Appellants, Nos. 1-15-1318, 1-16-0602 cons (Ill. App. Ct.)

Daniel Cuevas claimed homestead exemptions on 11 different
properties which he owned in Cook County. Only one of those
properties was his principal residence.

On or about May 27, 2014, the assessor sent Cuevas notices of
intent to record a tax lien on 11 different properties. Cuevas
requested a hearing pursuant to section 9-275(f). On December 4,
2014, after a hearing, the Department of Erroneous Homestead
Exemption Administrative Hearings (DEHE) hearing officer issued a
written order finding that Cuevas took improper exemptions on the
10 properties at which he did not reside and found him liable
under section 9-275. The order resulted in an aggregate amount due
of $91,984.85, including taxes, penalties, and interest.

On January 6, 2015, Cuevas filed a timely petition for
administrative review of the decision (case No. 15 CH 169). As
amended, the administrative review complaint alleged that the
DEHE's decision was erroneous because, among other reasons, the
new lien and collection system could not apply to taxes which
became delinquent before the July 16, 2013 effective date of
Public Act 98-93.

On February 10, 2015, Cuevas filed a second lawsuit (case No. 15
CH 2321) which he framed as a class action to also include
similarly affected taxpayers. As amended, the complaint asserted
numerous claims against section 9-275, that includes among other
things, a violation of state and federal constitutional guarantees
of uniform taxation, equal protection, and due process, vagueness,
ambiguity and arbitrariness. Like the administrative review
lawsuit, it also challenged the law's retroactive effect, noting
that the tax years in question all pre-dated the 2013 effective
date of the law. The two lawsuits were assigned to different
judges and were never consolidated or reassigned in the circuit
court.

In case No. 15 CH 2321, the class action case, the circuit court
upheld the legality of the administrative hearing process and the
underlying statute against a host of challenges asserted by
Cuevas. Cuevas also filed an administrative review case, No. 15 CH
169. In that case, the circuit court reversed the DEHE's
determination that Cuevas was responsible for back taxes for the
2007 tax year. Two appeals followed.

Justice Delort affirmed the circuit court's judgment in both cases
finding that the DEHE erred when it found that the assessor could
collect taxes resulting from an erroneous homestead exemption for
the 2007 tax year pursuant to section 9-275.

A copy of Justice Delort's opinion dated March 31, 2017, is
available at https://goo.gl/wwOJ9Z from Leagle.com.

FASHION FURNITURE: Torres Seeks Unpaid Wages Under Labor Code
-------------------------------------------------------------
DANIEL TORRES, an individual, on behalf of himself and all others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. FASHION FURNITURE RENTAL,
INC., a California Corporation, and DOES 1 through 100, the
Defendants, Case No. BC659190 (Cal. Super. Ct., Apr. 26, 2017),
seeks to recover unpaid wages and penalties under California
Business and Professions, Labor Code, and Industrial Welfare
Commission Wage Order No. 7.

Plaintiff routinely worked in excess of 8 hours per workday and/or
more than 40 hours per workweek, but did not receive overtime
compensation equal to one and one-half times his regular rate of
pay for working overtime hours. Specifically, Defendants paid
Plaintiff non-discretionary incentive pay, including: non-
discretionary annual bonuses; safety bonuses; bonuses for making
error-free deliveries; commission for selling furniture; and/or
other forms of pay not excludable as a matter of law when
calculating an employee's regular rate. Despite Defendants'
payment of Incentive Pay to Plaintiff, Defendants have failed to
include all forms of Incentive Pay when calculating Plaintiffs
regular rate of pay, thereby causing Plaintiff to be underpaid all
of his required overtime wages. Rather, Plaintiff was only paid
one-and-a-half times (or two times in the case of double-time
hours) his base hourly rate, which is not equal to his regular
rate, as Defendants failed to include the various forms of
Incentive Pay earned by Plaintiff during corresponding time
periods that are required to be included in the regular rate, but
were not.

GENVEC INC: "Pillai" Class Suit Challenges Intrexon Merger
----------------------------------------------------------
SIVARAMAN PILLAI, Individually and on Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, 19 Crumlin Cres Brampton, ON, L6X OY4, Canada,
the Plaintiff, v. GENVEC, INC. SERVE ON: Douglas J. Swirsky 910
Clopper Road, Suite 220N Gaithersburg, MD 20878 (Montgomery

County); and DOUGLAS J. SWIRSKY, 910 Clopper Road, Suite 220N
Gaithersburg, MD 20878 (Montgomery County), the Defendants, Case
No. 8:17-cv-01143-PJM (D. Md., April 25, 2017), is a shareholder
class action brought by Plaintiff, on behalf of himself and other
holders of the common stock of GenVec, Inc. against GenVec and
GenVec's Board of Directors, for their violations of Sections
14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the
"Exchange Act") in connection with the proposed merger between
GenVec and Intrexon Corporation through Intrexon GV Holding, Inc.

On January 24, 2017, Defendants announced that they had entered
into a definitive agreement under which GenVec stockholders will
receive 0.297 of a share of Intrexon common stock in exchange for
each share of GenVec common stock. This exchange ratio represents
$7.00 per share of GenVec's common stock based on Intrexon's 5-day
volume weighted average price as of January 23, 2017. GenVec
stockholders will also receive a right to contingent consideration
equal to 50% of any milestone or royalty payments received within
36 months after the closing of the transaction under GenVec's
Research Collaboration and License Agreement with Novartis.
Pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated December 12,
2016 (Merger Agreement), Merger Sub will merge with and into
GenVec, with GenVec surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Intrexon (Proposed Transaction). Based on Intrexon's stock closing
price of $22.09 on January 23, 2017, the last trading day prior to
the public announcement of the Proposed Transaction, the implied
value of the merger consideration (not including any payments with
respect to any contingent payment rights) was $6.56 per share.
However, since that time, Intrexon's stock price has fallen,
closing as low as $18.93 on March 23, 2017, which represents an
implied merger consideration value of only $5.62 per share. That
same day, the Company's stock price closed at $6.00 per share,
representing a $0.38 per share premium to the implied merger
consideration. The Board failed to negotiate for a collar that
would protect GenVec's stockholders from this foreseeable decline
in Intrexon's stock price.

To induce stockholders to vote in favor of the Proposed
Transaction, on March 17, 2016, in violation of Sections 14(a) and
20(a) of the Exchange Act and Rule 14a-9, Defendants filed, or
caused to be filed, a materially false and/or misleading
Registration Statement on Form S-4, which was amended on April 21,
2017 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Among other
things, the Registration Statement contains the unanimous
recommendation of the Board that GenVec shareholders vote "for"
the proposal to adopt the Merger Agreement. However, the
Proxy misrepresents and omits material information.

GenVec is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company with an
entrepreneurial focus on leveraging its AdenoVerse gene delivery
platform to develop a pipeline of cutting-edge therapeutics and
vaccines. The Company is a pioneer in the design, testing and
manufacture of adenovectored product candidates that can deliver
on the promise of gene-based medicine.[BN]

MADISON SQUARE: Violates Fair Credit Reporting Act, Millien Says
----------------------------------------------------------------
CLINT MILLIEN, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff(s), v. THE MADISON SQUARE GARDEN COMPANY
and MSGN HOLDINGS, L.P., the Defendant(s), Case No. 652225/2017
(N.Y. Sup. Ct., Apr. 26, 2017), seeks to recover statutory and/or
actual damages; exemplary and punitive damages; pre-judgment and
post-judgment interest; and reasonable attorneys' fees, costs, and
expenses as a result of Defendants violation of the Fair Credit
Reporting Act (FCRA), and New York State Fair Credit Reporting Act
(NY FCRA).

Mr. Millien sought employment at MSG. He was qualified for the
job, made a conditional offer of employment and subjected to MSG's
background check process.

MSG routinely allegedly rejects job applicants based on
information contained in background check reports (consumer
reports) that it obtains from consumer reporting agencies (CRAs)
without providing those individuals with copies of their consumer
reports, a statement of rights under the FCRA, or a copy of
Article 23-A of the New York Correction Law (Correction Law).
MSG's failure to provide these documents violates FCRA, which
renders illegal the use of consumer reports to make adverse
employment decisions without the employer first providing the
individual who is the subject of the report with sufficient and
timely notification of its intent to take an adverse action, a
copy of the report, and a summary of rights under the FCRA, which
requires that employers provide individuals with a copy of Article
23-A of the Correction Law when a consumer report has been
procured on them. MSG has willfully violated the provision of the
FCRA and NY FCRA.

MDL 2724: Suit by Teamsters Local 727 Transferred to E.D. Pa.
-------------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Teamsters Local Union No. 727
Health & Welfare Fund and NECA-IBEW Welfare Trust Fund, the
Plaintiffs, v. Mylan, Inc.; Taro Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.;
Taro Pharmaceutical USA, Inc.; Sandoz, Inc.; Mylan N.V.;
Mylan Pharmaceutical Inc.; and Novartis AG, Case No. 3:17-cv-

from the U.S. District Court for the District of Puerto Rico, to
the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
The District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 2:17-cv-01911-CMR to

The Teamsters Local case is being consolidated with MDL 2724 in
re: Generic Pharmaceuticals Pricing Antitrust Litigation. The MDL
was created by Order of the United States Judicial Panel on
Multidistrict Litigation on April 18, 2017. It appears that the

fact that are common to the actions previously transferred to the
Eastern District of Pennsylvania and assigned to Judge Rufe.
Pursuant to Rule 7.1 of the Rules of Procedure of the United
States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, the action(s)
on the attached schedule are transferred under 28 U.S.C. par. 1407
to the Eastern District of Pennsylvania for the reasons stated in
the order of August 5, 2016, and, with the consent of that court,
assigned to the Honorable Cynthia M. Rufe. This order does not
become effective until it is filed in the Office of the Clerk of
the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
Pennsylvania. The transmittal of this order to said Clerk shall be
stayed 7 days from the entry. If any party files a notice of
opposition with the Clerk of the Panel within this 7-day period,
the stay will be continued until further order of the Panel. The
lead case is 1:16-mc-07000-WHP.

NEW YORK, the Defendants, Case No. 153765/2017 (N.Y. Sup. Ct.,
April 25, 2017), seeks judgment enjoining Defendants from
violating the New York City Human Rights Law, and requiring
Defendants to develop and implement a remedial plan to make the
entire subway system systemically accessible to the Plaintiffs and
members of the class.

The lawsuit challenges the alleged systemic, discriminatory
exclusion of people with mobility and other disabilities affecting
their capacity to use stairs from the New York City subway system.

People who use wheelchairs, walkers, scooters, or other mobility
devices, or who are unable to use stairs due to disabilities
related to muscle, joint, heart or lung function, are blatantly
denied access to 360 subway stations (almost 80%) in New York
City, due to Defendants' failure to install elevators and
otherwise ensure vertical access at the majority of stations. The
discriminatory result leaves hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers
and visitors to the City with mobility and other disabilities
blocked, limited, and/or deterred from equal use of the City's
subway system.

Defendants' discriminatory exclusion of hundreds of thousands of
people with mobility disabilities or other disabilities affecting
a person's ability to use stairs from the vast majority of subway
stations is particularly harmful given the critical importance of
the subway system to life in New York City.

The Defendants own and/or operates the New York City subway
system.[BN]

MICHIGAN: 6th Cir. Remands ACA-related Suit vs. DHHS
----------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit affirmed
in part, reversed in part, and remanded the case captioned AELEN
UNAN and PATRICIA QUINTINO, on behalf of themselves and all others
similarly situated, Plaintiffs-Appellants, v. NICK LYON, in his
official capacity as Director, Michigan Department of Community
Health and Human Services, Defendant-Appellee, No. 16-1185 (6th
Cir.), for further proceedings.

On January 25, 2014, the Michigan Department of Health and Human
Services (DHHS) implemented various system changes required by the
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA). In the
course of implementation, a systemic computer problem caused a
number of applicants to be assigned automatically to Emergency
Services Only (ESO) Medicaid, although they might otherwise be
eligible for comprehensive coverage.  Specifically, non-citizen
applicants who attested to, but failed to verify, their
immigration status were automatically denied comprehensive
coverage, and approved for ESO coverage only.  Denial of
comprehensive coverage occurred without a reasonable opportunity
to provide documents verifying an applicant's eligible status.

Plaintiffs Aelen Unan and Patricia Quintino, two eligible non-
citizen residents of Michigan were erroneously assigned ESO
coverage.  Unan, a refugee, applied for Medicaid on April 2, 2014.
Quintino, who became a legal permanent resident in 1998, applied
for Medicaid on April 1, 2014. Neither Unan nor Quintino was asked
for documentation of her immigration status, although each had
previously provided such proof of status for her food assistance
case. Each received a Health Coverage Determination Notice
indicating that she had been approved for ESO Medicaid.

On September 8, 2014, Unan and Quintino filed a class-action
lawsuit for declaratory and injunctive relief against Nick Lyon,
the Director of DHHS, alleging that defendant failed promptly to
provide comprehensive Medicaid to plaintiffs pursuant to 42 U.S.C.
Section 1396a(a)(8), 10(A), failed to provide comprehensive
Medicaid to plaintiffs pending a reasonable opportunity to verify
plaintiffs' immigration status pursuant to 42 U.S.C. Sections
1396a(a)(8), 1320b2012 7(d)(4)(A), and had failed to provide
plaintiffs with adequate notice and a meaningful opportunity to be
heard regarding the denial of comprehensive Medicaid pursuant to
42 U.S.C. Section 1396a(a)(3) and the Due Process Clause of the
Fourteenth Amendment. On the same date, plaintiffs filed a motion
for preliminary injunction and a motion for class certification.

Two days after the complaint was filed, Unan and Quintino were
both determined by DHHS to be eligible for comprehensive Medicaid
coverage retroactive to April 1, 2014. On August 2, 2014, DHHS,
while working to correct the systemic computer problem, began
approving for full Medicaid individual applicants who attested to
eligible immigration status. Defendant claims that a permanent
correction for the ESO issue was implemented by December 30, 2014.

On March 24, 2015, the district court ordered the parties to
prepare revised notices for Medicaid applicants, and held in
abeyance plaintiffs' motions for preliminary injunction and class
certification. Both parties filed cross-motions for summary
judgment on August 31, 2015. On January 11, 2016, the district
court granted defendant's motion for summary judgment, denied
plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment, and entered judgment for
defendant. Plaintiffs' motions for class certification and
preliminary injunction were dismissed as moot. Plaintiffs filed a
notice of appeal.

The Sixth Circuit held that the plaintiffs' claims are not moot,
and reversed the district court's grant of defendant's motion for
summary judgment.  On the basis of grounds other than those relied
upon by the district court, the Sixth Circuit affirmed the denial
of plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment as to their claims that
defendant failed to provide comprehensive Medicaid coverage and a
reasonable opportunity to verify immigration status, and hold that
there are fact issues precluding summary judgment for both
plaintiffs and defendant. Defendant is entitled to judgment as a
matter of law on the remaining notice claims, and the suit is
remanded for further proceedings.

MONSANTO COMPANY: Faces "Maraman" Suit Over Sale of Roundup
-----------------------------------------------------------
JUANITA MARAMAN, the Plaintiff, v. MONSANTO COMPANY, the
Defendant, Case No. 3:17-cv-02318-VC (E.D. Mo., April 25, 2017),
seeks compensatory damages as a result of Plaintiff's use of, and
exposure to, Roundup (TM) which caused or was a substantial
contributing factor in causing Plaintiff to suffer from cancer,
specifically NHL, and Plaintiff suffered severe and personal
injuries which are permanent and lasting in nature, physical pain
and mental anguish, including diminished enjoyment of life.

The case is an action for damages suffered by Plaintiff as a
direct and proximate result of Defendant's negligent and wrongful
conduct in connection with the design, development, manufacture,
testing, packaging, promoting, marketing, advertising,
distribution, labeling, and/or sale of the herbicide Roundup (TM),
containing the active ingredient glyphosate. The Plaintiff
maintains that Roundup (TM) and/or glyphosate is defective,
dangerous to human health, unfit and unsuitable to be marketed and
sold in commerce, and lacked proper warnings and directions as to
the dangers associated with its use.

The information that Defendant did provide or communicate failed
to contain adequate warnings and precautions that would have
enabled Plaintiff, and similarly situated individuals, to utilize
the product safely and with adequate protection. Instead,
Defendant disseminated information that was inaccurate, false, and
misleading and which failed to communicate accurately or
adequately the comparative severity, duration, and extent of the
risk of injuries associated with use of and/or exposure to Roundup
and glyphosate; continued to promote the efficacy of Roundup, even
after it knew or should have known of the unreasonable risks from
use or exposure; and concealed, downplayed, or otherwise
suppressed, through aggressive marketing and promotion, any
information or research about the risks and dangers of exposure to
Roundup and glyphosate.

The Plaintiff has endured and, in some categories continues to
suffer, emotional and mental anguish, medical expenses, and other
economic and non-economic damages, as a result of the actions and
inactions of the Defendant.

agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation. It is

MONSANTO COMPANY: Faces "Naff" Suit over Over Sale of Roundup
-------------------------------------------------------------
MICHAEL NAFF, the Plaintiff, v. MONSANTO COMPANY, the Defendant,
Case No. 3:17-cv-02319-VC (E.D. Mo., April 25, 2017), seeks
compensatory damages as a result of Plaintiff's use of, and
exposure to, Roundup (TM) which caused or was a substantial
contributing factor in causing Plaintiff to suffer from cancer,
specifically NHL, and Plaintiff suffered severe and personal
injuries which are permanent and lasting in nature, physical pain
and mental anguish, including diminished enjoyment of life.

The case is an action for damages suffered by Plaintiff as a
direct and proximate result of Defendant's negligent and wrongful
conduct in connection with the design, development, manufacture,
testing, packaging, promoting, marketing, advertising,
distribution, labeling, and/or sale of the herbicide Roundup (TM),
containing the active ingredient glyphosate. The Plaintiff
maintains that Roundup (TM) and/or glyphosate is defective,
dangerous to human health, unfit and unsuitable to be marketed and
sold in commerce, and lacked proper warnings and directions as to
the dangers associated with its use.

The information that Defendant did provide or communicate failed
to contain adequate warnings and precautions that would have
enabled Plaintiff, and similarly situated individuals, to utilize
the product safely and with adequate protection. Instead,
Defendant disseminated information that was inaccurate, false, and
misleading and which failed to communicate accurately or
adequately the comparative severity, duration, and extent of the
risk of injuries associated with use of and/or exposure to Roundup
and glyphosate; continued to promote the efficacy of Roundup, even
after it knew or should have known of the unreasonable risks from
use or exposure; and concealed, downplayed, or otherwise
suppressed, through aggressive marketing and promotion, any
information or research about the risks and dangers of exposure to
Roundup and glyphosate.

The Plaintiff has endured and, in some categories continues to
suffer, emotional and mental anguish, medical expenses, and other
economic and non-economic damages, as a result of the actions and
inactions of the Defendant.

Monsanto Company is a publicly traded American multinational
agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation. It is
headquartered in Creve Coeur, Greater St. Louis, Missouri.[BN]

MYLAN INC: HMO Louisiana Alleges Clomipramine Price-Fixing
----------------------------------------------------------
LOUISIANA HEALTH SERVICE INDEMNITY COMPANY d/b/a BLUE CROSS AND
BLUE SHIELD OF LOUISIANA and HMO LOUISIANA, INC., the Plaintiff,
vs. MYLAN, INC., MYLAN PHARMACEUTICALS, INC., TARO PHARMACEUTICAL
INDUSTRIES LTD., TARO PHARMACEUTICALS USA, INC., and SANDOZ, INC.,
the Defendants, Case No. 2:17-cv-01882-CMR (E.D. Pa., April 28,
2017), seeks to recover damages, to the maximum extent allowed
under state laws, and that a judgment in favor of Plaintiffs and
members of the Damages Class be entered against Defendants jointly
and severally in an amount to be trebled to the extent such laws
permit.

For more than two years, federal and state enforcement agencies
have been investigating price-fixing and bid-rigging by companies
in the generic drug industry, including the manufacturers of
generic Clomipramine. Those investigations followed a
Congressional inquiry and hearing concerning a significant spike
in generic pricing.

On January 9, 2017, two executives of a manufacturer of generic
doxycycline pled guilty in federal court in the Eastern District
of Pennsylvania to criminal price-fixing, thereby confirming the
existence of conspiracies among generic drug manufacturers to fix
prices. In addition, in December 2016, the Attorneys General of 20
states filed a civil complaint in the United States District Court
for the District of Connecticut also alleging price fixing of
generic doxycycline. Further 71 generic pricing actions (44 end
payor actions, and 27 direct purchaser actions) have been filed in
the Federal Courts including 38 in the Eastern District of
Pennsylvania, 26 in the Southern District of New York, five in the
District of New Jersey, and two (2) in the District of Puerto
Rico.

The case is brought by Louisiana Health Service Indemnity Company
D/B/A Blue Cross And Blue Shield Of Louisiana, and HMO Louisiana,
Inc., on behalf of themselves and all other similarly situated
indirect purchasers (End-Payers or Plaintiffs) of generic
Clomipramine, to recoup overcharges that resulted from Defendants'
price-fixing conspiracies. Plaintiffs bring this action both
individually and on behalf of (a) a national injunctive class of
persons or entities in the United States and its territories who
indirectly purchased, paid and/or provided reimbursement for some
or all of the purchase price of generic Clomipramine, products
manufactured by any Defendant from October 1, 2012 to the present,
and (b) a damages class of or entities in the states identified
herein, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories who
indirectly purchased, paid and/or provided reimbursement for some
or all of the purchase price of generic Clomipramine, products
manufactured by any Defendant, other than for resale, from October
1, 2012 to the present. Defendants engaged in conspiracies to
allocate customers, rig bids and fix, maintain and/or stabilize
the prices of generic Clomipramine. As a result of Defendants'
unlawful conduct, Plaintiffs and the other members of the proposed
Classes paid artificially inflated prices.

OCWEN LOAN: Belcher Seeks Certification of Class & Subclass
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned TIMOTHY J. BELCHER, the Plaintiff, v.
OCWEN LOAN SERVICING, LLC, the Defendant, Case No. 8:16-cv-00690-
SDM-AEP (M.D. Fla.), the Plaintiff asks the Court to certify a
class pursuant to Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act
(FCCPA) and subclass pursuant Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
(FDCPA):

FCCPA Class:

   "all individuals in the State of Florida who: (1) were offered
   a HAMP loan modification by Defendant (2) for a debt incurred
   for personal, family, or household purposes, (3) accepted that
   offer by making a payment, (4) successfully completed the HAMP
   trial period for permanent loan modification of the debt by
   making three requisite monthly payments, and (5) during the
   HAMP trial period received collections communications from
   Defendant threatening the individual with foreclosure or the
   incurrence of additional fees if the individual failed to pay
   his or her unmodified loan amount, (6) on or after March 18,
   2014"; and

FDCPA Subclass:

   "all individuals in the State of Florida who: (1) were offered
   a HAMP loan modification by Defendant (2) for a debt incurred
   for personal, family, or household purposes and (3) for a debt
   that Defendant acquired after it was in default, (4) accepted
   that offer by making a payment, (5) successfully completed the
   HAMP trial period for permanent loan modification of the debt
   by making three requisite monthly payments, and (6) during the
   HAMP trial period received collections communications from
   Defendant threatening the individual with foreclosure or the
   incurrence of additional fees if the individual failed to pay
   his or her unmodified loan amount, (7) on or after March 18,
   2015".

The Plaintiff asserts claims for (1) violation of the FDCPA and
FCCPA. These allegations arise from Defendant's routine practice
of sending form collections communications to consumers that
threatened the foreclosure of their home or the incurrence of
additional fees to collect payment on unmodified loan amounts
while the consumers were actively participating in their trial
period for a Home Affordable Modification Program loan
modification.

POINT ONE: Ill. App. Ct. Upheld Award of Fees in CLA Suit
---------------------------------------------------------
The Appellate Court of Illinois, First District, Fifth Division,
affirmed the circuit court's judgment, in the case styled EMMA
ROBINSON and LATANYA KEMP, Plaintiffs, v. POINT ONE TOYOTA,
EVANSTON, RIVER OAKS TOYOTA and TOYOTA MOTOR CREDIT CORPORATION,
Defendants, (LatanyaKemp, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. Toyota Motor
Credit Corporation and River Oaks Toyota, Defendants-Appellees),
No. 1-15-2114 (Ill. App. Ct.)

Plaintiffs, Latanya Kemp and Emma J. Robinson sought damages and
attorney fees and costs for violations of federal and state law
related to the motor vehicle leasing agreements they entered into
with the defendants, Point One Toyota, Evanston, Toyota Motor
Credit Corporation, and River Oaks Toyota.

In their complaint and amended complaints, the plaintiffs alleged
that various provisions of the motor vehicle leases violated the
Consumer Leasing Act of 1976 (CLA), the Illinois Consumer Fraud
and Deceptive Business Practices Act and the Uniform Deceptive
Trade Practices Act (815 ILCS 510/1et seq. Plaintiffs also sought
certification as a class action. In addition to her joint CLA
claims with Ms. Robinson, in the first amended complaint, Ms. Kemp
alleged an individual claim under the CLA based on the failure to
disclose the actual amount of the sales tax owed under her vehicle
lease.
By 2011, all that remained of their lawsuit were the plaintiffs'
joint CLA claims and Ms. Kemp's individual CLA claim. Following
the filing of a third amended complaint and a hearing on the
parties' cross-motions for summary judgment, the circuit court
granted summary judgment to the plaintiffs on their CLA lease
termination and itemization of other charges claims and Ms. Kemp's
CLA individual claim. The court granted summary judgment to the
defendants, TMCC and River Oaks Toyota on the plaintiffs' default
penalties claim. Following an evidentiary hearing, the circuit
court denied the plaintiffs' request for actual damages on their
joint CLA claims but granted actual damages to Ms. Kemp on her
individual CLA claim. The court awarded Ms. Robinson statutory
damages of $1,000, and Ms. Kemp $1,596, in statutory and actual
damages based on the failure to disclose. Ms. Kemp's award
reflected a reduction of the $500 set-off she received from
defendant Point One Toyota, Evanston. The circuit court awarded
the plaintiffs $113,280 in attorney fees and costs of $420. The
plaintiffs appealed, and the defendants cross-appealed. On review,
the Appellate Court of Illinois, First District, Fifth Division
held that the defendants were entitled to summary judgment on all
of the plaintiffs' joint claims under the CLA, vacated the damages
and attorney fees and costs awarded to the plaintiffs on their
joint CLA claims, affirmed the actual and statutory damages award
to Ms. Kemp on her individual CLA claim and remanded the case to
the circuit court for a hearing on attorney fees and costs but
only as to Ms. Kemp's individual CLA claim.

Kemp sought an award of attorney fees in the amount of $1,074,163
based on 2719.4 hours and at a rate of $395 per hour and an award
of costs in the amount of $11,328.74. In response, TMCC maintained
that the attorney fee award should be based on a rate of $300 per
hour for the 10.5 hours that could reasonably be said to have been
spent on Ms. Kemp's single successful CLA claim.

On June 19, 2015, the circuit court issued its memorandum opinion
and order. After reviewing the history of the litigation, the
court noted that despite the small amount of her recovery, Kemp
was entitled to reasonable attorney fees under the CLA. The
circuit court awarded the 10.5 hours, which TMCC identified as
work on Ms. Kemp's claim. The court determined that between 1995
and 1996, 7.6 hours were specifically devoted to her claim. The
circuit court determined that Kemp was entitled to be compensated
for time expended in the circuit court in 1998 contesting the
dismissal motion, which included her sales tax claim and in the
first appeal since the appeal was a necessary step toward
preserving her claim, but not the appeal to the supreme court
since the plaintiffs' appeal was solely based on the unsuccessful
claims. Since the sales tax issue was a minor one in view of the
complex issues involved in this case, the court found 25 hours
compensable. The circuit court calculated the attorney fees at the
$395 per hour rate requested by Ms. Kemp's attorney, noting that
it had already removed the unsuccessful and unreasonable hours.
The court refused to order reimbursement of costs incurred for
faxing, mailing, photocopying, binding or other expenses in
bringing this case. The court further refused to order any
reimbursement for costs incurred since the appeal of the June 10,
2011, order since the appeal was completely unsuccessful. Kemp
appealed.

The Court affirmed the judgment of the circuit court as she finds
no error or abuse of discretion in the circuit court's award of
costs, its denial of fees for the fee petition proceedings, and
that the circuit court did not act arbitrarily in its reduction of
the attorney fees in the case.

QUALCOMM INC: Rotman et al. Sue over Baseband Processors Monopoly
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Allan Rotman, Shari Cole, Phillip James Zacharias, Mary Beth
Cummins, Guy Snowdy, Cynthia Bambini, Grant Hauschild, David
Floyd, Kim Coughlin, Brandon Fuller, Lisa Patnode, and Nina
Bartoshevich, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiffs, v. Qualcomm Incorporated, the Defendant,
Case No. 5:17-cv-02169-LHK (S.D. Cal., April 25, 2017), seeks
injunctive relief, monetary damages and all available remedies to
which they are entitled for Qualcomm's unlawful maintenance of a
monopoly in baseband processors.

The Plaintiffs are purchasers of cellular telephones and other
cellular devices, each of which contains a baseband processor
(also called a modem chipset), which are semiconductor devices
that enable cellular communications in cellphones and other
products.

The Plaintiffs brought the action against Defendant for Qualcomm's
unlawful maintenance of a monopoly in baseband processors.
Qualcomm has maintained its monopoly by engaging in
anticompetitive, exclusionary conduct, including, without
limitation: (a) failure to license standard-essential patents to
all applicants on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND)
terms; (b) withholding Qualcomm's baseband processors unless a
customer accepts a license to standard-essential patents on terms
imposed by Qualcomm, including excessive and unlawful royalties
that the customer must pay when using competitors' processors ("no
license-no chips"); (c) refusing to license its cellular standard-
essential patents to competitors, in violation of Qualcomm's FRAND
commitments; and (d) entering into exclusive dealing arrangements,
including with Apple Inc., a large and highly important cellphone
manufacturer. Qualcomm's anticompetitive conduct has caused
Plaintiffs and Class Members to pay inflated prices for each
cellular telephone and cellular device they purchased and has
excluded competitors, harmed competition, taxed Qualcomm's
competitors' baseband processor sales and reduced competitors'
ability to compete and incentive to innovate.

Qualcomm is an American multinational semiconductor and
telecommunications equipment company that designs and markets
wireless telecommunications products and services.[BN]

SANTANDER BANK: Overcharges Mortgage Insurance, Karlberg Claims
---------------------------------------------------------------
Drew Karlberg, Individually and on Behalf of all Others Similarly
Situated, 2601 Pennsylvania Avenue, No. 103, Philadelphia, PA
19130, the Plaintiff, v. Santander Bank, N.A., 824 North Market
Street, Suite 100 Wilmington, DE19801 the Defendants, Case No.
170403795 (Phil. Cty. Ct., Apr. 26, 2017), seeks all appropriate
and available relief from Santander for its overcharging its
mortgage borrowers on their private mortgage insurance (PMI)
payments.

The Plaintiff, on behalf of himself individually and all others
similarly situated, is an individual homeowner who obtained a
residential mortgage loan through Santander and brings this action
against Santander in connection with its continued overcharging of
Plaintiff and the Class for private mortgage insurance issued by
United Guaranty and collected by Santander.

Homeowners such as Mr. Karlbetg who buy a home with less than a
20% down payment ate typically requited to pay for PMI, which
protects the lender in the event of a default by Karlbetg. Mr.
Karlbetg pays the premium, which is usually collected by the
lender (here, Santander) along with the borrower's monthly
payments. Borrowers typically have no opportunity to comparison-
shop or to select their own private mortgage insurer, but are
instead forced to purchase PMI through their lender (which chooses
the PMI insurer).

Santander Bank provides banking products and services. It offers
personal checking accounts, savings and money market accounts.[BN]

TIBET PHARMACEUTICALS: Youhang Peng Wins Bid to Dismiss IPO Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge John Michael Vazquez of the U.S. District Court for
the District of New Jersey, granted defendant's motion to dismiss
the case ROBIN JOACHIM DARTELL, et al, individually and on behalf
all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. TIBET
PHARMACEUTICALS, INC., et al, Defendants, Civil Action No. 14-3620
(D.N.J.)

Plaintiffs brought suit against a number of individuals and
entities who were involved in the Initial Public Offering (IPO),
of defendant Tibet Pharmaceuticals, Inc. including Tibet, the
Tibet Directors who signed the IPO Registration Statement, the
underwriter, and Tibet's accounting firm.  Defendant Youhang Peng
was one of the Tibet Directors who signed the Registration
Statement. Plaintiffs initially filed suit on August 31, 2012 in
the United States District Court for the District of the Virgin
Islands, and on May 1, 2013 filed an amended complaint. On August
6, 2013, the Clerk of the Court of the Virgin Islands issued a
summons for defendant Peng, who according to the address listed on
the summons, resided in Coppell, Texas.  After considering
multiple motions to dismiss for improper venue, the case was
transferred to the District of New Jersey on May 1, 2014.

On March 22, 2016, almost three years after plaintiffs filed the
amended complaint, plaintiffs served Peng with the summons and
amended complaint at his home in Coppell, Texas. Plaintiffs served
Peng with the August 2013 summons, which was issued and signed by
the Clerk of the Court for the Virgin Islands and contains the
case name and civil index number from that District. The summons
fails to make any mention of the District of New Jersey and does
not contain the correct civil case index number or caption.
Plaintiffs' counsel, however, ultimately came to the conclusion
that, as they had alleged in the complaint, that Peng resided in
the Peoples Republic of China. Plaintiffs' counsel apparently
reached such conclusion because all of Tibet's operations are in
China, the IPO Prospectus lists a Chinese business address for
Peng, and information readily available on the Internet is
consistent with plaintiffs' belief that Peng resided in China, but
plaintiffs took no steps to serve Peng in China and did not
request for an extension of time.

After he was served, Peng filed a motion on April 14, 2016,
seeking dismissal due to improper service of process pursuant to
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 12(b)(4) and (b)(5), and for lack
of personal jurisdiction pursuant to Rule 12(b)(2). Judge Clark
terminated Peng's motion on April 22, 2016, permitting the parties
to take limited jurisdictional discovery on issues raised in the
motion. After conducting this limited discovery, Peng refiled his
motion to dismiss. Peng argues that the amended complaint should
be dismissed as to him because the summons was improper and
plaintiffs failed to effect service within the time allowed under
Rule 4(m). Peng continues that there is no basis upon which the
court should extend plaintiffs' time to serve him. Peng also
maintains that the court does not have general or specific
personal jurisdiction over him because plaintiffs failed to plead
that he has any contacts with New Jersey.  Plaintiffs counter that
although they failed to serve Peng in a timely fashion, the court
should extend the time in which they may serve Peng. Plaintiffs
argue that good cause exists for the court to grant an extension,
or, alternately, that the court should exercise its discretion to
grant an extension of time to effect service. Plaintiffs also
argue that the court has personal jurisdiction over Peng because
he signed Tibet's Registration Statement.

Judge Vazquez refused to provide plaintiffs with an extension of
time to serve Peng. Plaintiffs have been represented by counsel
since the case was filed in 2012, and failed to seek an extension
of time in which to serve Peng until Peng filed his motion to
dismiss. Moreover, plaintiffs did not serve Peng until two and
half years after their initial time to effect service expired, and
more than four months after receiving the document that allegedly
indicated to Plaintiffs that Peng actually resided in Coppell,
Texas. Plaintiffs also failed to provide any factual detail to
support their claim that they attempted in good faith to
effectuate service. In sum, Plaintiffs fail to provide the court
with any facts upon which it could reasonably conclude that a
discretionary extension of time is justified, even taking into
account the fact that the statute of limitations has run on
plaintiffs' claims against Peng. Defendant Youhang Peng's motion
to dismiss is granted. The amended complaint is dismissed as to
Peng without prejudice pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(5).

TOKAI PHARMACEUTICALS: Sued Over Prop. Otic Share Acquisition
-------------------------------------------------------------
Jason Wilson, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated v. Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Jodie P. Morrison, Seth
L. Harrison, Stephen Buckley, Jr., Cheryl L. Cohen, David A.
Kessler, and Joseph A. Yanchik III, Case No. 1:17-cv-10645 (D.
Mass., April 14, 2017), is brought on behalf of all holders of the
common stock of Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc., to enjoin the vote on
a proposed transaction, pursuant to which Tokai will purchase all
of the ordinary and preferred shares of Otic Pharma, Ltd. in
exchange for shares of Tokai common stock.

According to the complaint, Tokai filed a Definitive Proxy
Statement on Schedule 14A with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission, which recommends that Tokai stockholders vote in favor
of the Proposed Transaction. However, the Proxy Statement omits or
misrepresents material information concerning, among other things:
(i) Tokai management's projections, including the projections
utilized by the Company's financial advisor, Wedbush Securities
Inc. in its financial analyses; (ii) the valuation analyses
prepared by Wedbush in connection with the rendering of its
fairness opinion; (iii) Wedbush's potential conflicts of interest;
and (iv) material information concerning the background of the
process leading up to the Proposed Transaction.  The failure to
adequately disclose such material information constitutes a
violation of the Exchange Act as Tokai stockholders need such
information in order to cast a fully-informed vote in connection
with the Proposed Transaction. To remedy defendants' Exchange Act
violations, Plaintiff seeks to enjoin the stockholder vote on the
Proposed Transaction unless and until such problems are remedied.

Tokai Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused
on developing and commercializing therapies for prostate cancer
and other hormonally driven diseases. [BN]

TRAVELERS INDEMNITY: Kalista et al. Allege Wage & Labor Violations
------------------------------------------------------------------
RAYMOND KALISTA, MICHAEL ZYMANTAS, BRIAN DEAL, RODNEY TROXLER, AND
CHUCK BURKETT, individually, and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. TRAVELERS INDEMNITY COMPANY and DOES
1-20, inclusive, the Defendant, Case No.RG17857871 (Cal. Super.
Ct. Apr. 25, 2017), seeks to recover overtime wages and minimum
wage for all hours worked under California Labor Code and Wage
Order.

Each Plaintiff worked as a claims adjuster on the Catastrophe
Response Team (CAT Adjuster) for Travelers Indemnity Company.
Travelers uses its Catastrophe Response Team to evade California's
workplace protections by sending CAT Adjusters from other states
to supplement its California'-based workforce, without providing
them the benefits of California labor law. Plaintiffs bring this
action on behalf of a class of similarly situated CAT Adjusters
pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure section 382. They
also bring this action on a representative basis pursuant to the
Private Attorneys General Act of 2004, California Labor Code, on a
representative basis.

Since four years before the filing of this complaint, Travelers
has regularly sent CAT Adjusters to locations throughout
California to supplement its local workforce. Generally, CAT
Adjusters are required to work in California for periods of
twenty-eight days at a time. During these periods, Travelers
requires CAT Adjusters to work seven days a week for at least
twelve hours a day. Travelers tells CAT Adjusters that they are
not entitled to overtime pay or meal and rest breaks because the
laws of their home states apply no matter where they are working,
and because they are exempt from California's protections

The California Labor Code requires employers to provide, among
other things, minimum and overtime wages, meal and rest periods,
and accurate itemized wage statements to all employees while they
are performing work in California. By erroneously failing to apply
California labor protections to CAT Adjusters while they were
working for extended periods in California, and by
erroneously classifying CAT Adjusters as exempt employees,
Travelers violated requirements of the California Labor Code and
Industrial Welfare Commission Order No. 4-2001 (Wage Order 4).
Travelers has consistent policies and/or practices of: (1)
permitting, encouraging, and/or requiring CAT Adjusters to work in
excess of eight hours per day and/or in excess of forty hours per
week without paying them overtime compensation for work in
California; (2) failing to pay CAT Adjusters a minimum wage for
all hours worked for work California; (3) failing to provide CAT
Adjusters with adequate duty-free meal periods of at least one
half hour for every five hours worked for work in California; (4)
failing to provide CAT Adjusters with adequate duty-free, paid
rest periods of at least ten minutes for every four hours or major
fraction thereof worked for work in California; (6) willfully
failing to pay compensation owed to CAT Adjusters whose employment
with Travelers terminated; (7) knowingly and intentionally failing
to furnish timely and accurate itemized wage statements to CAT
Adjusters for work in California; and (8) unlawfully failing to
keep accurate payroll records of total horn s worked and wages
paid to CAT Adjusters for work in California. These practices
violated provisions of the California Labor Code on a classwide
basis. They also violated the California Unfair Competition Law,
Cal. Bus. & Profs. Code.

Travelers is an insurance company that employs CAT Adjusters to
travel around the United States to local offices where it
anticipates high volumes of claims.[BN]

UNITED CEREBRAL: Court Certified Class of Home Healthcare Workers
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit entitled SAM ADAMS, individually and on behalf of
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. UNITED CEREBRAL PALSY
OF CENTRAL ARKANSAS, INC., d/b/a United Cerebral Palsy of
Arkansas; PAULA RADER; and LARRY STANG, Case No. 4:16-cv-00930-JLH
(E.D. Ark.), the Hon. District Judge J. Leon Holmes entered an
order granting in part and denying in part plaintiff's motion for
conditional certification, for approval and distribution of
notice, and for disclosure of contact information.

The Court certified the class to include:

   "all home healthcare workers employed by the defendant or any
   of its affiliated entities since January 1, 2015".

The Court said, "Here, the affidavits of Sam Adams and Mary Branch
establish that a number of employees of the defendants hold the
same job title, work in the same geographic region, experienced
alleged violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act during the same
time period, and were subject to the same policies and practices.
While the specific jobs may have differed based upon the
requirements of the specific patients, with respect to the issues
that are relevant under the Fair Labor Standards Act, at this
lenient conditional certification stage, the evidence is
sufficient to establish that a number of employees are similarly
situated. The undersigned does not require plaintiffs in a Fair
Labor Standards Act case to establish that other potential class
members desire to opt in".

UNITED STATES: FCC Solicited Fax Rule Unlawful, D.C. Court Says
---------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals, District of Columbia Circuit,
vacated the Federal Communications Commission's order and remanded
the case styled BAIS YAAKOV OF SPRING VALLEY, ET AL., Petitioners,
v. FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION AND UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
Respondents. QUILL CORPORATION, ET AL., Intervenors, No. 14-1234,
Consolidated with Nos. 14-1235, 14-1239, 14-1243, 14-1270, 14-
1279, 14-1292, 14-1293, 14-1294, 14-1295, 14-1297, 14-1299, 14-
1302 (D.C.)

Petitioner Anda is a company that sells generic drugs. As part of
its business, Anda faxes advertisements to small pharmacies.
Anda's fax advertisements convey pricing information and weekly
specials to the pharmacies. Many pharmacies have given permission
to Anda for Anda to send those faxes.

In 2006, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued a rule
that requires businesses to include opt-out notices not just on
unsolicited fax advertisements, but also on solicited fax
advertisements. The FCC's new rule mandates that senders of
solicited faxes comply with a statutory requirement that applies
only to senders of unsolicited faxes.

In 2008, Anda had been sued in a class action in Missouri state
court for alleged violations of the FCC's Solicited Fax Rule. Many
of the plaintiff pharmacies in the case admitted that they had
expressly given permission to Anda for Anda to send fax
advertisements to the plaintiffs. But the plaintiffs nevertheless
sought over $150 million in damages from Anda because Anda's fax
advertisements allegedly did not include opt-out notices that
complied with the Solicited Fax Rule's requirements.

In 2010, Anda sought a declaratory ruling from the FCC clarifying
that the Act does not require an opt-out notice on solicited fax
advertisements that is, those that are sent with the recipient's
prior express permission.

In response to Anda's petition, the FCC adhered to its
interpretation of the Act as providing the FCC with the authority
to require opt-out notices on solicited faxes as well as
unsolicited faxes. The FCC says that the Act's requirement that
businesses include opt-out notices on unsolicited fax
advertisements grants the FCC the authority to also require
businesses to include opt-out notices on solicited fax
advertisements, that is, those fax advertisements sent with the
permission of the recipient.

The court held that the FCC's 2006 Solicited Fax Rule is unlawful
to the extent that it requires opt-out notices on solicited faxes.
The text of the Act does not grant the FCC authority to require
opt-out notices on solicited faxes. The order is vacated and the
case is remanded for further proceedings.

ZELTIQ AESTHETICS: Sued Over CoolSculpting System in "Otero" Case
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CARMEN OTERO and ABBEY LERMAN, as individuals and on behalf of
other members of the general public similarly situated, the
Plaintiff, v. ZELTIQ AESTHETICS, INC, a Delaware corporation; and
DOES 1-10, inclusive, the Defendant, Case No. BC659192 (S.D. Fla.,
Apr. 26, 2017), seeks to enjoin Defendants from further deceptive
advertising, sales, and other business practices with respect to
its representations regarding the CoolSculpting system and
treatments.

The case arises out of the unlawful, false, misleading, and
deceptive marketing practices used by Defendants with regard to
its CoolSculpting system and procedures. Defendants have
deceptively led customers to believe that they were purchasing,
for a premium price, medical treatments that have gone through the
rigorous FDA-approval process, with all of the safety and efficacy
that this implies. However, in reality, Defendants'
CoolSculpting system has merely received 510(k) premarket
notification clearance ("510(k)"), not premarket FDA approval
("PMA"), a crucial distinction that Defendants misrepresent and/or
fail to disclose to consumers. PMA requires rigorous trials and
testing, and comes with an endorsement by the FDA as to the safety
and effectiveness of a product, while 510(k) merely entails a
finding by FDA that Defendants' medical device is substantially
equivalent to a pre-existing device that was that was in
commercial distribution before May 28, 1976, the enactment date of
the Medical Device Amendments (MDA) to the Federal Food, Drug and
Cosmetic Act (FDCA).

The CoolSculpting system is a medical device which is
manufactured, marketed, distributed, and sold by Zeltiq
Aesthetics, Inc.[BN]
