BILL'S LANDSCAPING: Garcia Seeks Wages for Landscape Technicians
----------------------------------------------------------------
ALBERT GARCIA, an individual, on behalf of himself and all others
similarly situated, and the general public, the Plaintiff, v.
BILL'S LANDSCAPING, LANDSCAPE CONTRACTORS, a California
Corporation, and DOES 1-100, the Defendants, Case No. BC661215
(Cal. Super. Ct., May 12, 2017), seeks to recover unpaid wages,
including minimum wage, all applicable statutory and civil
penalties, including civil penalties recoverable pursuant to the
Private Attorney General Act (PAGA), attorneys' fees, costs, and
interest as well as injunctive relief, under California Labor
Code.

The case arises out of Defendants' systematic, company-wide,
unlawful treatment of Plaintiffs and similarly situated employees
in violation of the California Labor Code and California's Unfair
Compensation Law. The Plaintiffs and all other similarly situated
employees are current or former California based landscape
technicians employed by Defendants.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff alleges that he and
other landscape technicians were not provided with lawful meal and
rest periods as required by California state law. The Plaintiff
also alleges that landscape technicians paid an hourly rate of pay
were not compensated at the applicable state minimum wage for all
time worked. The Defendants failed to compensate
Plaintiff and other hourly landscape technicians for pre-trip
work, including the time to obtain paperwork for their designated
job sites, conduct pre-trip loading of materials and supplies into
company trucks, and for post-trip work, including post-trip
inspections and the time necessary to complete required paperwork
at the end of shifts, and drive company vehicles back to company
headquarters. In particular, Defendants required their technicians
to arrive at the company at 7:00 a.m. and drive to their
respective work site by 7:30 a.m. On the other hand,
Defendants would systematically fail to compensate their
landscapers for the time loadings vehicles with the necessary
tools, and supplies to complete the designated project.

Bill's Landscaping operates as a landscaping contractor for
residential and commercial properties in southern California.
The company utilizes radio-dispatched crews, dump trucks, water
trucks, loaders, and backhoes, in order to complete landscaping
and maintenance work for residential and commercial properties in
southern California.[BN]

v. Bluestem Brands, Inc., Case No. 0:15-cv-03437-JRT, in the U.S.
District Court for the District of Minnesota - Minneapolis.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the Plaintiff

credit to sell them extremely high-cost electronics and household
goods.  The Plaintiff alleges that virtually all purchases on
Fingerhut.com are made on credit that Bluestem arranges, and
virtually all purchases come from consumers targeted by Bluestem
as having a low income and a low FICO credit score.

Brands, Inc., Case No. 17-1931, in the United States Court of

CHIPOTLE MEXICAN: Bellwether Community Sues Over Data Breach
------------------------------------------------------------
BELLWETHER COMMUNITY CREDIT UNION, on behalf of itself and all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. CHIPOTLE MEXICAN
GRILL, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 1:17-cv-01102-WJM-STV (D.
Colo., May 4, 2017), seeks to recover damages caused by
Defendant's negligence, negligence per se, and for declaratory and
injunctive relief.

The case is a class action on behalf of credit unions, banks, and
other financial institutions that suffered injury as a result of a
security breach beginning on or around March 24, 2017, to the
present, that compromised the names, credit and debit card
numbers, card expiration dates, card verification values (CVVs),
and other credit and debit card information (Payment Card Data) of
customers of nationwide locations of Defendant's restaurants.

According to the complaint, Chipotle Data Breach has forced
Plaintiff and other financial institutions to: cancel or reissue
any credit and debit cards affected by the Chipotle Data Breach;
close any deposit, transaction, checking, or other accounts
affected by the Chipotle Data Breach, including, but not limited
to, stopping payments or blocking transactions with respect to the
accounts; open or reopen any deposit, transaction, checking, or
other accounts affected by the Chipotle Data Breach; refund or
credit any cardholder for the cost of any unauthorized transaction
relating to the Chipotle Data Breach; respond to a higher volume
of cardholder complaints, confusion, and concern; increase fraud
monitoring efforts; and reissue cards compromised by the Chipotle
Data Breach. The injuries to Plaintiff and the Class were directly
and proximately caused by Defendant's failure to implement or
maintain adequate data security measures for customer information,
including credit and debit card data and personally identifying
information. Defendant failed to take reasonable steps to employ
adequate security measures despite well-publicized data breaches
at large, national retail and restaurant chains in recent months,
including Arby's, Wendy's, Noodles & Company, Target, Home Depot,
Sally Beauty, Harbor Freight Tools, P.F. Chang's, Dairy Queen, and
Kmart. Despite having knowledge that such data breaches were
occurring throughout the restaurant and retail industry, Defendant
failed to properly protect sensitive payment card information.

The Defendant also failed to mitigate the damage of a potential
data breach by failing to implement chip-based card technology,
otherwise known as EMV technology. EMV -- which stands for
Europay, MasterCard, and Visa -- is a global standard for cards
equipped with computer chips and technology used to authenticate
chip card transactions. While Visa implemented minimum EMV Chip
Card and Terminal Requirements in October 2015, the Defendant has
not implemented EMV technology in its stores, and thus, left
vulnerable to theft all of the information on the magnetic stripe
of cards used in its restaurant locations, in a way it has been
repeatedly warned about. In 2015, Chipotle reported that it would
not upgrade its terminals to EMV technology, claiming that it
would slow down customer lines. As a direct and proximate
consequence of Defendant's negligence, vast amounts of customer
information was stolen from Chipotle's computer network. Moreover,
Plaintiff and members of the Class have incurred and will continue
to incur significant costs associated with, among other things,
notifying their customers of issues related to the Chipotle Data
Breach, closing out and opening new customer accounts, reissuing
customers' cards, and/or refunding customers' losses resulting
from the unauthorized use of their accounts.

Chipotle operates a chain of fast-casual restaurants that serve "a
focused menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls and salads, made
using fresh, high-quality ingredients." As of March 31, 2017,
Chipotle operates approximately 2,249 restaurants throughout the
United States, as well as 34 international locations, and 8
restaurants in operation in other non-Chipotle concepts. In 2016,
its revenues totaled approximately $3.9 billion dollars.[BN]

CONSUMER COLLECTION: Illegally Debits Accounts, Harris Alleges
--------------------------------------------------------------
KIMBERLY HARRIS, individually and on behalf of herself and all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. CONSUMER COLLECTION
MANAGEMENT, INC., and DOES 1-4, the Defendants, Case No. 3:17-cv-
00463-SMY-DGW (S.D. Ill., May 3, 2017), seeks damages, injunctive
relief, and any other available legal or equitable remedies,
resulting from the illegal actions of Defendant debiting
Plaintiff's and also the putative Class members' bank accounts on
a recurring basis without obtaining a written authorization signed
or similarly authenticated for preauthorized electronic fund
transfers from Plaintiff's and also the putative Class members'
accounts, thereby violating Electronic Fund Transfer Act (EFTA).

The Plaintiff, on behalf of herself and all others similarly
situated, brings this action against Consumer Collection
Management, Inc. to secure redress against Defendants for unlawful
conduct that violated the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act
(FDCPA) as well as the EFTA.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff's checking account is a
demand deposit account Plaintiff established primarily for
personal, family, and household purposes. Despite the supposed
oral agreement for Defendant to make recurring, "preauthorized"
electronic funds transfers from Plaintiff's personal checking
account, Defendant did not provide to Plaintiff, and Plaintiff did
not sign, any written preauthorization for Defendant to make an
electronic fund transfer from Plaintiff's checking account. The
Plaintiff did not provide to Defendant any written
preauthorization for Defendant to make an electronic fund transfer
from Plaintiff's checking account. The Plaintiff did not any time
receive (or waive her right to receive) from Defendant the
disclosures required by 15 U.S.C. section 1693c. Nonetheless, as
alleged below, Defendant CCM took recurring electronic funds
transfers from Plaintiff's checking account without written
preauthorization, and thereby, has violated the EFTA. Furthermore,
it is believed that Defendant CCM did not provide Plaintiff with
requisite notices required before Defendant CCM could take an
electronic funds transfer from Plaintiff, which also violates the
EFTA. Despite Defendant's failure to adhere to the EFTA's
requirements and prohibitions, Defendant illegally took recurring
electronic fund transfers from Plaintiff's checking account at
least on January 31st, February 28th and March 28th of 2017.[BN]

CVS PHARMACY: "Zamora" Suit Sues Over Limited Warranty
------------------------------------------------------
Osiris Zamora, on her own behalf and on behalf of all other
similarly situated persons, the Plaintiff, v. CVS Pharmacy, Inc.,
a Rhode Island corporation; and DOES 1 through 50, inclusive, the
Defendants, Case No. BC661092 (Cal. Super. Ct., May 12, 2017),
seeks injunction commanding CVS to comply with its obligations
under the presale rule by implementing one of the permissible
compliance options at all of its California stores.

On December 12, 2016, the Plaintiff purchased a Waterpik Water
Flosser Ultra at a CVS store in Palmdale, California. The
Plaintiff purchased the Waterpik for personal, household and
family purposes. The Waterpik's package stated that the product
came with a manufacturer's "three-year warranty" which Ms. Zamora
interpreted to mean a typical full product warranty under which
Waterpik would either repair covered defects at its own expense or
replace the product. Plaintiff did not review the actual warranty
inside the product package prior to purchase nor did she even know
she had the right to request a copy of the warranty from CVS prior
to purchase.

When plaintiff opened the product package and read the warranty
document she realized that she did not receive a full warranty on
the Waterpik, but rather, a limited warranty on parts only. The
limited warranty further provided that in the event of a defect in
a covered part, Waterpik's responsibility was limited solely to
providing a replacement part. It would then be Plaintiffs
responsibility to either remove the defective part and install the
replacement part herself or pay to have someone else
perform the work. The limited warranty further required that
Plaintiff must provide the original sales receipt as a condition
to obtaining warranty services.

The Magnusson-Moss Warranty Federal Trade Commission Improvement
Act requires that all retail sellers like CVS make the text of
manufacturer's warranties available to consumers prior to
purchase. The Federal Trade Commission implemented a regulation
-- the presale rule -- that sets forth the manner in which retail
sellers like CVS can make warranties available to consumers prior
to sale. At the time plaintiff purchased the Waterpik, CVS was in
violation of the presale rule in the following respects: CVS did
not post a copy of the Waterpik limited warranty in close
proximity to where the Waterpik was displayed for sale at CVS's
California stores.

CVS Pharmacy is a subsidiary of the American retail and health
care company CVS Health, headquartered in Woonsocket, Rhode
Island.[BN]

FASHION FURNITURE: Christie Seeks OT Wages Under Labor Code
-----------------------------------------------------------
KENNETH CHRISTIE as an individual and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. FASHION FURNITURE RENTAL, a
California UNLIMITED CIVIL CASE 20 corporation, and DOES 1 through
100, the Defendants, Case No. BC661210 (Cal. Super. Ct., May 12,
2017), seeks to recover overtime wages under the state Labor Code.

The Plaintiff was employed by Defendants as a non-exempt Helper
and Driver at one of Defendants' locations in Los Angeles County,
from May 2015 to Winter 2016. The Plaintiff's primary job duties
included driving a company truck to various locations daily, and
loading and unloading furniture for corporate housing, businesses
and home staging, among other businesses. During Plaintiffs
employment with Defendants, he received various forms of non-
discretionary incentive pay including, but not limited to, non-
discretionary safety, bed-bug and "partials" bonuses, incentive
pay, and/or other forms of pay which are not excludable under
California Law and the Fair Labor Standards Act when calculating
an employee's regular rate of pay (collectively referred to as
"Incentive Pay"). Despite Defendants' payment of Incentive Pay to
Plaintiff, Defendants failed to include all forms of Incentive Pay
when calculating his 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 his base
rate, which was not equal to the regular rate, as Defendants
failed to include the various forms of Incentive Pay earned during
corresponding periods that were required to be included in the
regular rate calculation, but were not.

INTERCONTINENTAL HOTELS: "Orr" Sues Over Security Breach
--------------------------------------------------------
DAVID ORR, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. INTERCONTINENTAL HOTELS GROUP, PLC,
INTER-CONTINENTAL HOTELS CORPORATION, and INTERCONTINENTAL HOTELS
GROUP RESOURCES, INC., the Defendants, Case No. 1:17-cv-01622-MHC
(N.D. Ga., May 5, 2017), seeks injunctive relief, monetary
damages, statutory damages, and all other relief as authorized in
equity or by law as a result of Defendants' breach of implied
contract, negligence, and unjust enrichment.

The Plaintiff brings this class action against IHG for its failure
to secure and safeguard its customers' personal financial data --
credit and debit card information including cardholder name, card
number, expiration date, and internal verification code ("Private
Information").

Based on reports of patterns of unauthorized card use from payment
card networks, in December 2016, IHG began investigating a
possible security breach affecting some of its locations. On April
14, 2017, IHG sent a letter to Plaintiff informing him that its
investigation "identified signs of the operation of malware
designed to access payment card information" at IHG hotels between
September 29, 2016, and December 29, 2016 ("Security Breach").

This malware was designed to search for cardholder names, card
numbers, expiration dates, and internal verification codes read
from the magnetic stripe of payment cards as they were routed
through the server of an affected hotel. The Plaintiff's and Class
members' Private Information was stolen by hackers after Plaintiff
and Class members used their credit and debit cards at the
affected IHG branded hotels during this period. The Security
Breach affected at least 1,000 IHG properties.

According to the complaint, IHG's security failures enabled the
hackers to steal Plaintiff's and Class members' Private
Information from within IHG's hotels and subsequently make
unauthorized purchases on their credit and debit cards. The
failures also put Plaintiff's and Class members' financial
information and interests at serious, immediate, and ongoing risk
and, additionally, caused costs and expenses to Plaintiff and
Class members attributable to responding, identifying, and
correcting damages that were reasonably foreseeable as a result of
IHG's willful and negligent conduct. The hackers continue to use
the information they obtained as a result of IHG's inadequate
security to exploit and injure Plaintiff and Class members across
the United States.

The Security Breach was caused and enabled by IHG's knowing
violation of its obligations to abide by best practices and
industry standards concerning the security of payment systems. IHG
failed to comply with security standards and allowed its
customers' financial information to be compromised by cutting
corners on security measures that could have prevented or
mitigated the Security Breach that occurred.[BN]

IHG is a British multinational hotels company headquartered in
Denham, UK. IHG has over 742,000 rooms and 5,028 hotels across
nearly 100 countries.

JOHNSON & JOHNSON CO., the Defendants, Case No. 3:17-cv-03213-BRM-
LHG (D.N.J., Mar., 2017), seeks to recover damages for injuries

wrongful conduct of Defendants in connection with the designing,
developing, manufacturing, distributing, labeling, advertising,
marketing, promoting, and selling of canagliflozin (Invokana
(TM)), a prescription medication used in the treatment of
diabetes.

This is an action for product liability, design defect, failure to

According to the complaint, the Defendants concealed, and continue
to conceal, their knowledge of Invokana's (TM) unreasonably

community. As a result of the defective nature of Invokana (TM),
persons who were prescribed and ingested Invokana (TM), including
Plaintiff, have suffered and may continue to suffer severe and
permanent personal injuries, including diabetic ketoacidosis,
stroke, heart attack and severe kidney damage. After beginning
treatment with Invokana (TM), and as a direct and proximate result
of Defendants' actions and inaction, the Plaintiff developed
diabetic ketoacidosis. Plaintiff's ingestion of the defective and
unreasonably dangerous drug Invokana (TM) has caused and will
continue to cause injury and damage to Plaintiff.

MDL NO. 2672: Settlement in Dealership Suits Has Final Approval
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned IN RE: VOLKSWAGEN "CLEAN DIESEL" MARKETING,
SALES PRACTICES, AND PRODUCTS LIABILITY LITIGATION.  This Order
Relates To: ALL CONSUMER ALL RESELLER DEALERSHIP ACTIONS, MDL No.
2672 (N.D. Cal.), Judge Charles R. Breyer of the United States
District Court for the Northern  District California granted final
approval of the settlement that resolves consumer claims
concerning affected 2.0- and 3.0-liter diesel turbocharged direct
injection ("TDI") vehicles.

On Sept. 2, 2016, the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee filed its
Amended Consolidated Consumer Class Action Complaint against 13
named defendants: Volkswagen Group of America; Volkswagen AG; Audi
AG; Audi of America, LLC; Porsche AG; Porsche Cars North America,
Inc.; Martin Winterkorn; Mattias Muller; Michael Horn; Rupert
Stadler; Robert Bosch GmbH; Robert Bosch, LLC; and Volkmar Denner.
As against Robert Bosch GmbH and Robert Bosch, LLC, the complaint
asserts claims under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt
Organizations Act, state fraud and unjust enrichment laws, and all
50 States' consumer protection laws.  The PSC also filed a Second
Amended Consolidated Reseller Dealership Class Action Complaint
against the same 13 defendants; the complaint asserts against
Bosch claims for RICO, fraud, and unjust enrichment.

After months of intensive negotiations and with the assistance of
a court-appointed settlement master, the Plaintiffs and Bosch
reached a Settlement that resolves consumer claims concerning
affected 2.0- and 3.0-liter diesel TDI vehicles which the Court
preliminarily approved Feb. 16, 2017.

The Settlement requires Bosch to create a non-reversionary
settlement fund, called the Bosch Settlement Fund, in the amount
of $327,500,000 to compensate Class Members.  The Fund will be
distributed such that $163,267,450 will be shared among 2.0-liter
Class Members and $113,264,400 will be shared among 3.0-liter
Class Members.

The Fund will be distributed to Class Members, based on the
Federal Trade Commission's allocation plan, as follows:

   a. An eligible owner of an Eligible Vehicle in the 2.0-liter
settlement will receive $350, except that if an eligible seller or
lessee has an approved claim for the same Eligible Vehicle, the
eligible owner will receive $175. An eligible seller in the 2.0-
liter settlement with an approved claim will receive $175. An
eligible lessee in the 2.0-liter settlement will receive $200.

   b. An eligible owner of an Eligible Vehicle in the 3.0-liter
settlement will receive $1,500, with three exceptions: (i) if an
eligible former owner of the same Eligible Vehicle has an approved
claim in the 3.0-liter settlement, the $1,500 payment will be
split equally ($750 each) between the owner and the former owner;
(ii) an eligible owner will also receive $750 if an eligible
former lessee of the Eligible Vehicle has an approved claim; and
(iii) if two former eligible owners of the Eligible Vehicle have
approved claims, the $1,500 will be split such that the eligible
owner receives $750 and each of the two former owners receives
$375.  An eligible lessee in the 3.0-liter settlement will receive
$1,200.  The Settlement Benefit Period, or the time period during
which Class Members may obtain benefits under the Settlement, ends
on April 30, 2020.

At the conclusion of the Settlement Benefit Period, if any funds
remain in the Bosch Settlement Fund, and it is not feasible or
economically reasonable to distribute such funds to Class Members,
the funds will be distributed through cy pres payments according
to a distribution plan and schedule filed by Class Counsel and
approved by the Court.   Any unused funds will only revert to
Bosch if the Settlement is terminated or invalidated prior to the
conclusion of the Settlement Benefit Period.

Reasonable attorneys' fees and costs for common-benefit work
performed by Class Counsel, and other attorneys designated by
Class Counsel, will be paid from the Bosch Settlement Fund.

In exchange for benefits under the Settlement, Class Members agree
to release all Released Claims against the Released Parties.

The Court also confirms the appointment of (i) the Lead
Plaintiffs' Counsel and the 21 members of the PSC listed in
Pretrial Order No. 7 as Settlement Class Counsel; (ii) the
Settlement Class Representatives listed in Exhibit 1 to
Plaintiffs' motion for preliminary approval; (iii) Epiq Systems,
Inc. as the Claims Administrator and Notice Administrator; and
(iv) Citibank Private Bank to serve as the Escrow Agent.

MINTO LAW: 12 Legal Malpractices Suits Filed in Ill. State Court
----------------------------------------------------------------
Twelve lawsuits have been filed against Minto Law Group. The suits
seek damages in excess of $50,000 for each Plaintiff;
consequential and incidental damages; pre-and post-judgment
interest; attorneys' fees, expenses, and court costs; punitive
damages; and such other relief that the Court deems just and
equitable.

Each of the complaints contends that the Defendants should have
obtained a tolling agreement or filed suit for the members of the
client group much sooner than they did. Defendants represented
some clients since at least 2008.  No later than February 2011,
when Defendants intervened on behalf of other clients to protect
the confidentiality of documents at issue in a case the United
States filed (in November 2010) against John Rogers (U.S. v.
Rogers), Defendants learned that the United States had accused
Rogers of selling illegal and abusive tax shelters. Accordingly,
no later than February 2011, Defendants should have been advising
their existing and prospective clients to protect their claims
against Rogers and Seyfarth either by obtaining a tolling
agreement or filing suit. The Defendants' failure to timely file
claims or obtain tolling agreements harmed Plaintiff.

Each of the complaints contends that at the time Plaintiff
terminated Defendants' representation, 16 of the 34 lawsuits that
Defendants filed on behalf of their clients had been dismissed as
against Seyfarth or were on the verge of being dismissed with
prejudice as untimely or otherwise defective as the result of
Defendants' negligence. While successor counsel were ultimately
able to settle Plaintiff's claims, the settlement they were able
to achieve for Plaintiff and other former clients of Defendants
were substantially less favorable than could and would have been
obtained absent Defendants' misfeasance and nonfeasance.
Accordingly, Plaintiff brings this complaint against former
counsel for damages proximately caused by Defendants' actions and
omissions, including negligently delaying filing suit on behalf of
Burshtein; and negligently failing to seek and obtain a tolling
agreement for Plaintiff. The damages proximately caused by
Defendants' negligence include, but are not limited to, the
diminished settlement value of Plaintiff's tardily filed claims in
Illinois.

The 12 suits are captioned as:

MONSANTO COMPANY: Turner Sues Over Injury Caused by Herbicide
-------------------------------------------------------------
RONNIE L. TURNER, the Plaintiff, v. MONSANTO COMPANY, the
Defendant, Case No. 7:17-cv-00093-HL (M.D. Ga., Jan. , 2017),
seeks compensatory damages as a result of Plaintiff's use of, and
exposure to, Roundup which caused or was a substantial
contributing factor in causing Plaintiff to suffer from cancer.

The 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
Plaintiff's injuries, like those striking thousands of similarly
situated victims across the country, were avoidable.

According to the complaint, 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 (TM) 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.

agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation.[BN]

KARL BROOKS, MAYA EVANS, TOM HAMEL, COLETTE HANDS, BONNIE LUCAS,

      employment at Oakton Community College as the result of its
      policy not to employ or re-employ State Universities
      Retirement System annuitants and who are not 'affected

   3. appointing Nathan D. Eisenberg, Sara J. Geenen, and Erin F.
      Medeiros, and Stephen Yokich to represent the class.

The Court said, "Dayton has also moved for approval of his
proposed notice to class members. Defendants have not objected to
the proposed notice, and the Court approves the notice Dayton has
proposed, except that the word "promulgated," where used, should
be changed to "established" to make it more readily
understandable. Class counsel are directed to immediately
communicate the Court's decision to counsel for the plaintiffs in
the two consolidated individual suits. The case remains set for a
status hearing on Monday, May 22, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. to set a

OCWEN LOAN: Gonzales Sues Over Debt Collection Practices
--------------------------------------------------------
AMANDA GONZALES, the Plaintiff, v. OCWEN LOAN SERVICING, LLC
AND OCWEN MORTGAGE SERVICING, INC., the Defendants, Case No. 3:17-
cv-01212-B (N.D. Tex., May 7, 2017), seeks to recover damages in
response to Defendants' violations of the Telephone Consumer
Protection Act (TCPA), the Texas Debt Collection Practices Act,
Texas Finance Code (TDCPA), and the Texas Deceptive Trade
Practices Act (DTPA).

According to the complaint, between September 5, 2011 and December
15, 2015, the Defendants called Plaintiff on Plaintiff's cellular
telephone number ending in 1389 via an "automatic telephone
dialing system" (ATDS), using an "artificial or prerecorded
voice". This ATDS has the capacity to store or produce telephone
numbers to be called, using a random or sequential number
generator. When Plaintiff would answer the calls from Defendants,
there would often be a silence, sometimes with a click or beep-
tone, before an Ocwen Representative would pick up and start
speaking. Sometimes, Plaintiff would receive calls from Defendants
in which the caller was a recorded voice or message, rather than a
live representative. In total, Plaintiff has received at least
1,136 calls from Defendants on Plaintiff's cellular telephone. The
Plaintiff was personally affected, becoming frustrated and
distressed that, despite telling Defendants to stop calling
Plaintiff's cellular phone, Defendants continued to harass
Plaintiff with collection calls using an ATDS. The unrelenting,
repetitive calls disrupted Plaintiff's daily activities and the
peaceful enjoyment of Plaintiff's personal and professional life,
including the ability to use Plaintiff's phone. The calls placed
by Defendants to Plaintiff were extremely intrusive, including
Plaintiff's relationships with close family members. Specifically,
Plaintiff began to ignore or send to voicemail many incoming calls
from unknown numbers, out of frustration in dealing with
Defendants' unwanted and intrusive calls.

It was plaintiff's phone that was called and it was plaintiff
herself who answered the calls. It was plaintiff's personal
privacy and peace that was invaded by Defendant's persistent phone
calls using an ATDS. Finally, plaintiff alone is responsible to
pay the bill on her cellular phone. All of these injuries are
particularized and specific to plaintiff, and will be the same
injuries suffered by each member of the putative class.

OCWEN LOAN: 5 Suits Filed over Debt Collection Practices
--------------------------------------------------------
Five lawsuits have been filed against Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC.
The suits seek damages as a result of Defendants' violations of
the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the Texas Debt
Collection Practices Act (TDCPA), and the Texas Deceptive Trade
Practices Act (DTPA).

The Plaintiffs allege that Ocwen unlawfully and abusively collect
debt allegedly owed by Plaintiffs.  According to each of the
complaints, the Plaintiffs answered telephone calls from
Defendants and asked Defendants to stop calling. Despite this
clear and unmistakable request, the calls continued without
interruption. Each of these requests terminated any express or
implied consent that Defendant may have had prior to beginning its
campaign of harassment by telephone. Each of these calls was an
attempt to collect on a consumer debt allegedly
due and owing by Plaintiff. The calls by Defendants to Plaintiffs'
cell phones continued, even after Plaintiff's oral revocation. The
Plaintiffs were personally affected, becoming frustrated and
distressed that, despite telling Defendants to stop calling
Plaintiff's cellular phone, Defendants continued to harass
Plaintiff with collection calls using automatic telephone dialing
system.

The five lawsuits are captioned as:

SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS: Raabe Sues Over Recalled Washing Machines
--------------------------------------------------------------
LINDA L. RAABE, on Behalf of Herself and All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, v. SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS AMERICA, INC.,
SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS CO., LTD, THE HOME DEPOT, INC., LOWE'S HOME
CENTERS, LLC., BEST BUY CO., INC., SEARS HOLDING CORPORATION, the
Defendants, Case No. 2:17-cv-00946-KJM-EFB (E.D. Cal., May 4,
2017), seeks injunction against Defendants from any further sales
of recalled washing machines and to take such other remedial
action as may otherwise be requested; and money damages to
adequately and reasonably compensate owners of the Recalled
Washing Machines who have, through no fault of their own,
purchased defective and dangerous Samsung washing machines.

The Plaintiff brings this action on behalf of herself and other
purchasers of the Recalled Washing Machines in the United States,
its possessions, or territories from March 2011 to November 2016.

This action relates to the marketing and selling of certain
defective Samsung home washing machines that have latent and
inherent defects and Samsung's failed recall of these same washing
machines. These washing machines "explode," or suffer catastrophic
failure during a given machine's normal usage because of a design
defect and/or manufacturing flaw.

According to the complaint, on January 30, 2013, Raabe purchased a
Recalled Washing Machine (model number WA400PJHDWR/AA) from a Best
Buy store in Citrus Heights, California. On November 4, 2016,
Samsung began a recall (Recall No. 17-028) of 34 distinct models
(the "Recalled Washing Machine(s)"), all being models of Samsung
top-load washing machines, including the model purchased by
Plaintiff.  The stated reason for the recall is that "[t]he
[Samsung] washing machine top can unexpectedly detach from the
washing machine chassis during use, posing a risk of injury from
impact." The recall bulletin further notes that "Samsung has
received 733 reports of washing machines experiencing excessive
vibration or the top detaching from the washing machine chassis.
There are nine related reports of injuries, including a broken
jaw, injured shoulder, and other impact or fall-related
injuries.".

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (the CPSC),
the remedies provided in Samsung's recall bulletin allow consumers
the option of any one of the following:

     -- an in-home repair or retrofit that includes reinforcement
of the washer's top and a free one-year extension of the
manufacturer's warranty;

     -- a rebate to be applied towards the purchase of a new
Samsung or other brand of washing machine, along with free
installation of the new unit and removal of the old unit; or

     -- a full refund for consumers who purchased their washing
machine within the past 30 days of the recall announcement.

Samsung Electronics Co. is in the business of distributing,
marketing, promoting, and selling the recalled Washing Machines.
Samsung Electronics America is the warrantor of the products
designed, manufactured, and distributed by Samsung Electronics
Co., Ltd. Home Depot is in the business of distributing,
marketing, promoting, and selling the Recalled Washing
Machines.[BN]

SCOTTRADE INC: Fails to Protect Private Data, "Martin" Suit Says
----------------------------------------------------------------
ANGELA LYNN MARTIN, Individually and on behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. SCOTTRADE, INC., a Missouri
Corporation, the Defendant, Case No. 8:17-cv-01042-JDW-AAS (Fla.
Cir. Ct., May 3, 2017), seeks to remedy Scottrade's failure of
protecting Plaintiff's personal information and other sensitive
data.

According to the complaint, Scottrade collects a variety of
confidential financial and other personal information from its
customers. Its customers, including Plaintiff and the other Class
members, reasonably expect and believe that Scottrade will take
appropriate measures to protect their personal information.
Meanwhile, Scottrade contractually obligates itself to using
"industry leading security technologies" to protect its customers'
information. For Plaintiff and the other Class members, Scottrade
failed to live up to the expectation of its customers or its
contractual and other obligations. As a result of Scottrade's
failings, contact information, social security numbers, tax
identification numbers, employer contact information, personal
email address and other sensitive data of more than 4.6 million
Scottrade customers was accessed, taken and used by a group of
hackers.

Scottrade is a financial brokerage and bank.[BN]

SEMACONNECT INC: E & G Sues Over Unsolicited Fax Messages
---------------------------------------------------------
E & G, INC., a West Virginia corporation, individually and as the
representative of a class of similarly-situated persons, the
Plaintiff, v. SEMACONNECT INC., a Maryland corporation, and JOHN
DOES 1-5, the Defendant, Case No. 2:17-cv-02774 (S.D.W.Va., May
5., 2017), seeks injunctive relief enjoining Defendants, their
employees, agents, representatives, contractors, affiliates, and
all persons and entities acting in concert with them, from sending
unsolicited advertisements in violation of the Junk Fax Prevention
Act (JFPA); and an award of statutory damages in the minimum
amount of $500.

This case challenges Defendants' practice of sending unsolicited
facsimiles.

According to the complaint, the Defendants have sent facsimile
transmissions of unsolicited advertisements to Plaintiff and the
Class in violation of the JFPA, including, but not limited to, the
facsimile transmission of an unsolicited advertisement on or about
December 1, 2015. The Fax describes the commercial availability or
quality of Defendants' products, goods and services. The
Defendants have sent, and continue to send, unsolicited
advertisements via facsimile transmission in violation of the
JFPA, including but not limited to those advertisements sent to
Plaintiff. Unsolicited faxes damage their recipients. A junk fax
recipient loses the use of its fax machine, paper, and ink toner.
An unsolicited fax wastes the recipient's valuable time that would
have been spent on something else.  A junk fax interrupts the
recipient's privacy. Unsolicited faxes prevent fax machines from
receiving authorized faxes, prevent their use for authorized
outgoing faxes, cause undue wear and tear on the recipients' fax
machines, and require additional labor to attempt to discern the
source and purpose of the unsolicited message.

reimbursements, and reversed for further proceedings because it
recently held in Northwest Center for Integrative Medicine and
Rehabilitation, Inc. v. State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance
Co., that the reimbursement issue has not been conclusively
resolved.

Appellant had an automobile policy with PIP benefits from State
Farm.  She was in an accident and treated by medical providers.
State Farm paid a portion of the providers' charges and the
providers billed appellant for the remainder.  The appellant
sought a declaratory judgment that State Farm relied exclusively
on the Medicare fee schedules when determining the reasonable
amount to reimburse her medical providers, even though State Farm
failed to elect the method of reimbursement in her policy.
Appellant requested that State Farm be ordered to reimburse the
class members for the amounts they were billed by their providers.

State Farm moved to dismiss the complaint, making the circular
argument that because the policy did not elect the Medicare fee
schedule method, the appellant's allegation that State Farm had
elected that method without notice failed to state a claim.
Additionally, State farm argued the action was inappropriate for
class relief.  The trial court granted State Farm's motion,
finding that after "[a] review of the language of State Farm's
policy," it was "clear that State Farm did not make a policy
election to limit reimbursements pursuant to the schedule of
maximum charges set forth in Fla. Stat. Section 627.736(5)(a)2.
(2008-2012) in the policy."

In Northwest, the medical providers brought a claim for
declaratory judgment that "State Farm's calculation of PIP policy
medical reimbursements [was] based solely on Medicare fee
schedules, where the insurance policy did not provide notice that
the insurance company elected to apply the fee schedules pursuant
to section 627.736(5)(a)(2), Florida Statutes (2009)."  The trial
court dismissed the complaint for failure to state a cause of
action.  It held that the proper methodology for calculating
reimbursements under subsection (5)(a)(1) and whether the Medicare
fee schedules could be solely relied on had not been addressed by
prior cases and reversed for reinstatement of the claim.

In the present case, the Court's dismissal for failure to state a
claim relied heavily on the rationale discussed by the trial court
in Northwest.  Because the question presented regarding State
Farm's actual practice is essentially the same as in Northwest,
it again reverses for reinstatement of the claim.  The appellant
should be given leave to amend her claim after remand for
declaratory relief to seek relief similar to that approved of in
Northwest Center.

The Fla. Dist. App. notes that the relief the appellant requested
was inappropriate because she agreed to balance billing in her
policy.  Under her best case scenario, the problem is not that she
was billed by the provider, but that she was billed a higher
amount because State Farm did not reimburse a reasonable amount.

On remand, if the appellant prevails on the claim for declaratory
relief, it will be necessary to address the class action issue as
it applies to the question of appropriate relief.  The court will
consider the applicability of any notice requirement under the PIP
statute.  The court should also consider whether a class action is
untenable because individual issues would predominate and whether
a class action is precluded because of manageability issues.

SUTHERLAND MORTGAGE: Rapp et al. Seek Certification of Class
------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned WILLIAM RAPP and LARRY EGGETT, on behalf
of themselves and all other similarly situated employees, the
Plaintiffs, v. SUTHERLAND MORTGAGE SERVICES, INC., the Defendant,
Case No. 4:17-cv-01010 (S.D. Tex), the Plaintiffs asks the court
for an order conditionally certifying a collective action under
the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and authorizing "opt in"
notices to similarly situated mortgage loan officers who have
performed similar work for Defendant over the past three years,
since they too were subjected to Defendant's illegal pay scheme.

This case arises under the federal FLSA. The FLSA generally
requires that an employer employing an employee for a workweek
exceeding 40 hours must provide compensation for all hours in
excess of 40 at a rate of not less than one and one-half times the
employee's regular rate. Rapp and Eggett are former mortgage loan
officers who worked for Defendant in the United States. According
to the complaint, Plaintiffs and the putative collective action
members were classified as nonexempt from the FLSA, meaning they
were entitled to receive overtime when they worked more than forty
hours in a workweek.

Case No. 1:17-cv-00938-DAP (N.D. Ohio., May 3, 2017), seeks to

compensation required by the FLSA results from generally
applicable policies or practices, and does not depend on the
personal circumstances of Plaintiffs or the Collective Members.
All Collective Members, irrespective of their particular job
requirements and job titles, are entitled to proper overtime wage
compensation for all hours worked in excess of 40 in a given

TRUMP UNIVERSITY: Simpson Appeals Order in "Low" Suit to 9th Cir.

URBANI TRUFFLES: Mislabeled White Truffle Oil, Schiffman Claims
---------------------------------------------------------------
JAY SCHIFFMAN and ANTHONY WILLIAMS, on behalf of themselves and
all others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v. URBANI TRUFFLES
USA, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 2:17-cv-00935-TLN-CKD (E.D.
Cal., May 3, 2017), seeks to recover damages against Defendant for
breach of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, breaches of express and
implied warranty, unjust enrichment, negligent misrepresentation,
fraud, and violations of New York and California's false
advertising and consumer protection laws.

The case is a class action against Urbani Truffles USA, Inc. for
false, misleading, and deceptive misbranding of its Urbani White
Truffle Oil and Urbani Black Truffle Oil sold to consumers. Urbani
markets its truffle oil as containing actual "White Truffle[s]" or
"Black Truffle[s]," respectively. But Urbani Truffle Oil is
nothing of the sort; instead of flavoring its oil with actual
"White Truffle[s]' or "Black Truffle[s]," Defendant's Products are
flavored with an industrially produced, chemically-derived perfume
known as "2,4-dithiapentane." Despite the absence of actual "White
Truffle" or "Black Truffle," Urbani Truffle Oil is sold at a
substantial price premium over olive oil that does not contain
real truffles.

2,4-Dithiapentane, also known as "formaldehyde dimethyl
mercaptal," is synthetically prepared by the acid-catalyzed
addition of methyl mercaptan to formaldehyde. Although it emulates
the taste and smell of truffles, it is not truffle. Urbani's
misbranding is intentional. The front label and packaging of
Urbani Truffle Oil represents in extra-large, bold, all-capital
lettering that the product contains "White Truffles" and "Black
Truffles," respectively:

Urbani Truffles holds itself out as an importer of gourmet truffle
oils and other Italian delicacies. It markets and sells these oils
widely throughout the United States.[BN]

US STEEL: Violates Securities Exchange Act, "Ortiz" Suit Says
-------------------------------------------------------------
CARMELO ORTIZ, Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, v. UNITED STATES STEEL CORPORATION, MARIO
LONGHI, and DAVID B. BURRITT, the Defendants, Case No. 2:17-cv-
00579-CB (W.D. Pa., May 3, 2017), seeks to recover

The case is a federal securities class action on behalf of all
persons who purchased or otherwise acquired U.S. Steel common
stock between November 1, 2016 and April 25, 2017, inclusive
(Class Period), against U.S. Steel and certain of its officers
and/or directors for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934 (1934 Act). These claims are asserted against U.S. Steel and
certain of its officers and/or directors who made materially false
and misleading statements during the Class Period in press
releases, analyst conference calls, and SEC filings.

As a direct and proximate result of defendants' wrongful conduct,
Plaintiff and the other Class members have suffered damages in
connection with their respective purchases and sales of U.S. Steel
stock during the Class Period, because, in reliance on the
integrity of the market, they paid artificially inflated prices
for U.S. Steel stock and experienced loses when the artificial
inflation was released from U.S. Steel stock as a result of the
revelations and risk materializations, and the stock price
decline.  Plaintiff and the other Class members would not have
purchased U.S. Steel stock at the prices they paid, or at all, if
they had been aware that the market prices had been artificially
and falsely inflated by defendants' misleading statements and
omissions.

U.S. Steel is an integrated steel producer of flat-rolled and
tubular products with major production operations in North America
and Europe. An integrated steel producer uses iron
ore and coke as primary raw materials for steel production. U.S.
Steel has annual raw steel production capability of 22 million net
tons (17 million tons in the United States and 5 million tons
in Europe). U.S. Steel supplies customers throughout the world
primarily in the automotive, consumer, industrial, and oil country
tubular goods markets. U.S. Steel was the 24th largest steel
producer in the world in 2015.[BN]

VERITY HEALTH: Lara Sues Over Personally Identifiable Information
-----------------------------------------------------------------
IRIS LARA and TANYA LLERA, individually, and on behalf of a class
of similarly situated individuals, the Plaintiffs, v. VERITY
HEALTH SYSTEM OF CALIFORNIA, INC., a California corporation, the
Defendant, Case No. BC661000 (Cal. Super. Ct., May 12, 2017),
seeks to recover all remedies available under Civil Code including
actual and statutory damages, equitable relief, and reasonable
attorneys' fees.

The Plaintiffs bring this action for themselves and on behalf of
all others similarly situated who, as a condition of employment,
provided personally identifiable information (PII) to Verity
Health System of California, Inc., and whose PII was in the
possession and control of Defendant at any time since January 1,
2015.

As a result of the Defendant's failure to maintain adequate
security measures and timely notify employees of security
breaches, the Plaintiffs and Class Members' PII has been
repeatedly compromised and remains vulnerable. Further, the
Plaintiffs and Class Members have suffered an ascertainable loss
in that they have had tax refunds withheld or otherwise delayed,
engaged professional tax, legal or other assistance, and undertook
additional security measures (at their own expense) to minimize
the risk of future data breaches including, without limitation,
changing passwords, security questions and answers, and/or
purchasing a security freeze on their credit files. However, due
to Verity's incomplete investigation, Plaintiffs and Class Members
have no guarantee that these security measures will in fact
adequately protect their personal information. As such, Plaintiffs
and other Class Members have an ongoing interest in ensuring that
their personal information is protected from past and future
cybersecurity threats.

Verity Health System of California, Inc. owns and operates
hospitals and medical foundation in Northern and Southern
California.[BN]

VIRTUS INVESTMENT: Mixed Rulings in 2 Securities Complaints
-----------------------------------------------------------
Cara Salvatore, writing for Bankruptcy Law360, reports that U.S.
District Judge William Pauley III has granted class certification
in a securities class action against Virtus Investment Partners
Inc. over alleged public misstatements, but simultaneously denied
certification in another suit with similar allegations.

Law360 relates that Judge Pauley granted class certification to
investors who owned Virtus common stock from January 2013 to May
2015 over claims that the company misstated by seven years the
launch date of a fund family and neglected in 2013 to tell
investors that the company's good performance was based, at least
partially, on the misstatement.

Laaw360 relays that the allegations state, in essence, that Virtus
told investors based on F-Squared Investment Inc.'s AlphaSector
investment strategy that the strategy confirmed by live trading
back to 2001. But it was later discovered that the trading
strategy was developed through a "back-testing" simulation and
wasn't developed until 2008, according to the complaints.

On the other hand, Law360 reports, Judge Pauley denied class
certification in another suit, this one by mutual fund investors
in Virtus Opportunities Trust and led by Mark Youngers, saying
that they'd missed the boat on alleging one key element of such
securities class claims: reliance on the supposed misstatement in
their investing decisions.

Virtus is represented by Joseph McLaughlin and George Wang of
Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP.

Youngers is represented by Laurence Rosen and Jonathan Stern of
The Rosen Law Firm PA.

ATRS is represented by John Esmay and Michael Rogers of Labaton
Sucharow LLP and John Browne and Jesse Jensen of Bernstein

Partners Inc. Securities Litigation, case number 1:15-cv-01249,
both in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New
York.

May. 6, 2017), seeks injunctive relief, and attorney's fees,
litigation expenses, and costs pursuant to the Americans with

Z-LIVE INC: Faces "Salazar" Wage-and-Hour Suit
----------------------------------------------
DANIEL SALAZAR, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff(s), v. Z-LIVE INC. d/b/a CANTINA ROOFTOP,
and PEDRO ZAMORA, the Defendant, Case No. 154428/2017 (N.Y. Sup.
Ct., May 12, 2017), seeks to recover damages, pre- and post-
judgment interest, attorneys' fees and costs, and such other legal
and equitable relief under New York Labor Law.

The Plaintiff brings this section as a class action on behalf of
all employees who provide direct customer service, including but
not limited to captains, servers, and bartenders, employed by
Defendants in New York on or after the date that is six years
before the filing of this complaint.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff worked about three
shifts per week, depending on how many shifts he was assigned. The
Plaintiffs exact shifts worked throughout his employment at
Cantina can likely be determined in discovery through a review of
time records that Defendants are required to maintain by law. The
Defendants paid Plaintiffs at the "tip credit rate," which is
lower than the New York minimum wage, throughout his employment
with Defendants. However, Defendants were not entitled to reduce
the minimum wage by applying the tip credit allowance because
Defendants (a) misappropriated portions of Plaintiffs and Class
Members' tips, and (b) did not provide appropriate notice of the
tip credit. The Plaintiff and Class members were required to pool
their tips.

Z-Live is a New York company that operates Cantina Rooftop
restaurant in New York.[BN]
