201 WEST: Bid to Dismiss "Flores" Partly Granted
------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned NICOMEDES FLORES, a/k/a Pablo, and CRISOFORO
CAMPOS, on behalf of themselves, FLSA Collective Plaintiffs, and
the Class, Plaintiffs, v. 201 WEST 103 CORP., d/b/a Buchetta, IANO
CORP., d/b/a Acqua, 886 AMSTERDAM AVENUE CORP., d/b/a Arco Caf??,
994 COLUMBUS AVENUE CORP., d/b/a Isola, 3143 BROADWAY CORP., d/b/a
Bettolona, 1600 AMSTERDAM AVENUE CORP., d/b/a Coccola, 412
AMSTERDAM CORP., d/b/a Bettola, SEBASTIANO CAPPITTA, DANIELE
FIORI, and FRANCESCA FIORI, Defendants, No. 16 Civ. 2233 (KPF)
(S.D. N.Y.), Judge Katherine Polk Failla of the United States
District Court for the Southern District of New York granted in
part and denied in part the Moving Defendants' motion to dismiss
and denied as moot their motion to strike.

Plaintiff Flores brought this collective and class action on March
25, 2016.  Under the FLSA, the Plaintiffs seek to recover from
Defendants unpaid wages, unpaid overtime compensation, liquidated
damages, and attorney's fees and costs.  Under the NYLL, they seek
to recover unpaid wages, unpaid overtime compensation, unpaid
"spread of hours" premiums, statutory penalties, liquidated
damages, and attorney's fees and costs.

On June 3, 2016, the Defendants filed a letter motion for a
conference to discuss their contemplated motion to dismiss
Plaintiff Flores's pleading.  A conference was held on June 28,
2016.  Pursuant to the Court's discussion with the parties at that
conference, Plaintiffs Flores and Campos filed the Complaint on
July 25, 2016.  Plaintiff Campos previously had consented to sue
under the FLSA on June 21, 2016.

On Aug. 8, 2016, the Defendants filed a letter motion for a second
conference to discuss their contemplated motion to dismiss. In
light of the Court's discussions with the parties at the June 28,
2016 conference, their motion for a conference was denied.
Instead, the Court set a briefing schedule for their motion.

The Moving Defendants filed their motion to dismiss on Sept. 12,
2016.  The Plaintiffs filed their opposition to this motion on
Oct. 26, 2016.  The Moving Defendants filed their reply on Nov. 9,
2016.

The Galvez Declaration that is the subject of the Defendants'
motion to strike was filed months later, on May 12, 2017.  They
filed their letter motion to strike the Declaration on May 15,
2017.  The Plaintiffs opposed the letter motion on May 18, 2017,
and the Defendants filed a reply on May 19, 2017.

The Defendants moved to dismiss the Plaintiffs' Amended Complaint
under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)6) and to strike
Telesforo Reyes Galvez's declaration in support of the Plaintiffs'
opposition to the Defendants' motion.

Because the Plaintiffs do not dispute the Moving Defendants'
contention that the Plaintiffs have failed to state a claim with
regard to these Defendants, and indeed consent to the dismissal of
these claims, the Moving Defendants' motion to dismiss the
Plaintiffs' claims against 1600 Amsterdam Avenue Corp., doing
business as Coccola, and Francesca Fiori is granted.

With regard to Daniele Fiori, the Court finds at this stage that
the Plaintiffs have plausibly pleaded that Fiori was their
employer.  While the Court might deem this alone little more than
a conclusory allegation tailored to the tests of employer control,
the Court notes that the Plaintiffs have also pleaded that Fiori
was "a manager at 'Buchetta' and directly supervised Plaintiffs"
in that capacity.  Drawing all inferences in the Plaintiffs' favor
as it must at this stage, the Court finds that the Plaintiffs have
plausibly pleaded that Fiori had formal control over them, such
that he was the Plaintiffs' employer for purposes of the FLSA.
Hence, the Moving Defendants' motion to dismiss the Plaintiffs'
claims against Daniele Fiori is denied.

The Court was able to resolve the Defendants' motion without
considering the Galvez Declaration or either of the Plaintiffs'
Declarations, which the Court agrees with that the Defendants are
outside the Court's purview at this stage.  Accordingly, the
Defendants' motion to strike the Galvez Declaration is denied as
moot.

The Clerk of Court is directed to terminate the motions pending at
Docket Entries #40 and #50.  The remaining parties are directed to
provide the Court with a joint status letter and proposed case
management plan on June 28, 2017, so the Court may determine how
this case will proceed.

ADVANCED MICRO: Bid to Dismiss "Dickey" Partly Granted
------------------------------------------------------
Judge Haywood S. Gilliam, Jr., of the United States District Court
for the Northern District of California granted in part and denied
in part the Defendant's motion to dismiss the case captioned TONY
DICKEY, et al., Plaintiffs, v. ADVANCED MICRO DEVICES, INC.,
Defendant, Case No. 15-cv-04922-HSG (N.D. Cal.), and denied the
Plaintiffs' motion to strike.

Following the Court's previous order granting the Defendants'
motion to dismiss, the Plaintiffs filed a second amended class
action complaint on Jan. 6, 2017, alleging that the Defendant
misrepresented the number of core processors in its "Bulldozer"
line of central processing units.  On the basis of this alleged
misrepresentation, they bring six causes of action against
Defendant: (i) California Consumer Legal Remedies Act; (ii)
California Unfair Competition Law ("UCL"); (iii) California False
Advertising Law; (4) fraud in the inducement; (5) breach of
express warranty; and (6) negligent misrepresentation.

The Plaintiffs argue in their complaint that the Defendant's
Bulldozer products do not contain eight "cores" as advertised.
According to them, a "core" is able to operate independently from
other cores positioned on a chip, which leads, in turn, to
improved performance.  The Bulldozer CPUs, however, contain eight
"sub-processors" that share resources instead.  Shared resources
inhibit chips from operating and simultaneously multitasking,
which results in bottlenecks during data processing.  Because the
Bulldozer CPUs share resources between two "cores," they
functionally only have four -- rather than eight -- cores.
Therefore, the Plaintiffs claim the products that they purchased
are inferior to the products that Defendant advertised.  The
Plaintiffs allege that the Defendant's representations regarding
the number of cores on each Bulldozer chip were false.  In their
claims against the Defendant, the Plaintiffs seek both monetary
and injunctive relief.

The Defendant argues that the Plaintiffs' Second Amended Complaint
should be dismissed for failure to state a claim.  Although it
divides its arguments into fraud-based and non-fraud based claims,
its overarching point is the same for all six claims: the
Plaintiffs have failed to plead sufficient facts to support their
expectation that its Bulldozer multi-core processors would contain
eight independent cores.  The Defendant further argues that the
Plaintiffs' request for injunctive relief should be dismissed for
lack of standing.

APPLIED MATERIALS: Stewart Seeks Final Approval of Settlement
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiff in the lawsuit captioned MARIA STEWART, on behalf of
all others similarly situated v. APPLIED MATERIALS, INC. WELFARE
PLAN, Case No. 3:15-cv-02632-JST (N.D. Cal.), asks the Court to
enter an order granting:

   1. final approval and certification of the Settlement Classes;
      and

   2. final approval of the Class Action Agreement to Settle
      Claims.

Maria Stewart brought the class action lawsuit against the
Defendant Plan seeking coverage for Speech Therapy to treat
individuals with autism spectrum disorder ("ASD") who were either
age six or older at the time of receipt of speech therapy or were
age five or younger and had speech therapy which exceeded 60
speech therapy visits in a calendar year.  After filing suit, the
parties engaged in discussions in an effort to resolve
retrospective class claims.

Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the Plan has agreed
to provide substantial relief to the Plaintiff and the proposed
settlement classes.  The Plan will pay Speech Therapy claims,
incurred before Plan modifications effective January 1, 2016,
without application of age-based exclusions or visit limitations.
The Settlement Agreement specifically prevents the Plan from
denying coverage on these two specific grounds.

The Settlement provides relief to the Settlement Classes, which
consists of all individuals who:

   (1) (a) have been participants or beneficiaries in the Plan at
       any time during the Class Period; (b) who while enrolled
       in the Plan received Speech Therapy to treat Autism during
       the Class Period and had an Autism diagnosis at the time
       of that Speech Therapy; and (c) were either age six or
       older at the time of receipt of that Speech Therapy or
       were age five or younger and had exceeded 60 Speech
       Therapy visits in a calendar year; and either (i)
       submitted claims for reimbursement of Speech Therapy to
       the Plan and the Claims Processor denied those claims
       ("Class One"); or (ii) did not submit a claim to the Plan
       and were not otherwise reimbursed for the therapy ("Class
       Two"); or,

   (2) are the parents and guardians of the individuals described
       in Paragraph (1) above; or

   (3) are the Successors-in-Interest of the individuals
       described in Paragraph (1) above.

Applied Materials will pay Class Counsel $70,520 in recognition of
the time and expenses incurred in prosecuting this action.

A Fairness Hearing is currently set for July 13, 2017, at 2:00

BRANDI'S HOPE: Miss. Ct. Conditionally Certifies "Birdie" Class
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned RENZA BIRDIE, on behalf of herself and those
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. BRANDI'S HOPE COMMUNITY
SERVICES, LLC, and DANNY COWART, Defendants, Civil Action No.
5:17-cv-21-DCB-MTP (S.D. Miss.), Judge David C. Bramlette, III, of
the United States District Court for the Southern District of
Mississippi, Western Division, granted the Plaintiff's Motion for
Conditional Certification, for Approval and Distribution of
Notice.

Birdie, on behalf of herself and others similarly situated,
commenced this Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") collective action
against the Defendants on Feb. 24, 2017.  Brandi's Hope is a
Mississippi limited liability corporation operating residential
care facilities for disabled adults.  Cowart is the company's
owner and chief executive officer.

Birdie was employed by Brandi's Hope from November of 2014 to May
of 2015 as a Direct Support Professional ("DSP").  Within that
role, Birdie was responsible for providing assistance and care to
disabled adults living in group homes operated by Brandi's Hope.
Because these group homes were staffed at all times, DSPs were
often required to stay with their residents overnight.  Birdie
claims that she frequently worked the night shift, which ran 17
hours from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.  During these shifts, Birdie
alleges that she was required to "clock out" between 10:00 p.m.
and 6:00 a.m. but remain at the facility throughout the night.
Through the company's "sleep time" policy, she claims that the
Defendants violated the FLSA by requiring her and other similarly
situated DSPs to work in excess of 40 hours a week without
overtime compensation.

Birdie moves for conditional certification requesting that Court-
authorized notice of the collective action be sent to all DSPs or
Direct Care Professionals ("DCPs") employed by the Defendants
since Feb. 24, 2014.  While the Defendants do not oppose
conditional certification, they do request that the scope of the
proposed class and accompanying disclosures be limited.

Judge Bramlette granted Birdie's Motion for Conditional
Certification, and conditionally certified the collective class
consisting of all DSPs, or DCPs, employed by the Defendants who
stayed with a client overnight at any time since Feb. 24, 2014.

The Defendants must provide the Plaintiff's counsel with the
names, last known addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, and
dates of employment of all potential members of the collective
class, in electronic form, within 14 days of the date of entry of
the Order.

The Plaintiff will submit to the Court, no later than 14 days from
the date of entry of the Order, a proposed notice to potential
class members, revised in accordance with the class conditionally
certified in the Order.  Within 14 days of Court approval of the
Notice, the Plaintiff shall send a copy of the approved Notice and
Consent forms to potential class members.  Said potential class
members shall submit their consent forms opting-in to this lawsuit
no later than 90 days from the date Notice is mailed.

Judge Bramlette further ordered that the Plaintiff's counsel is
authorized to send a reminder postcard by mail and email to those
potential class members who have not responded 30 days after the
initial notice is mailed.

CHIPOTLE MEXICAN: Faces New Class Action on Expanding Overtime Pay
------------------------------------------------------------------
Sara E. Teller, writing for Legal Reader, reports that a lawsuit
has been filed against Chipotle on June 7, claiming that a federal
ruling expanding overtime pay to its workers is in effect even
after an injunction last year that banned the Labor Department
from enforcing this regulation.  The proposed class action lawsuit
was filed in U.S. District Court in New Jersey and alleges that
the popular Mexican eatery is responsible for paying time and a
half to employees who work more than the standard 40 years per
week and are earning less than $47,476 per year.

Depending on the outcome of the case, the lawsuit could
potentially mean significant scheduling changes and back pay for
many of Chipotle's employees. It could also have implications
others who would become eligible for overtime pay under the rule.

Chipotle's attorneys argue that the rule took effect as scheduled
on December 1st because the court ordering the injunction hadn't
issued a final decision in the matter or chosen to repeal the
regulation, and the eatery was anticipating being held responsible
for changes.  Employers raised the salaries of many workers with
full schedules, adjusted employees' schedules if they were working
too many hours and made other changes to comply with the
regulation.

Some locations decided to stick with their new policies on a "just
in case" basis, but others are choosing to wait until they hear
the final outcome of the case before accepting they are
responsible for changes.  Some Chipotle employees in New Jersey
started receiving overtime pay in mid-November for hours worked
over 40 hours a week.  The schedules of others have also gotten
more predictable, because employers are no longer being pushed to
work over 40 hours.  But, others have noticed only temporary
changes and their supervisors have stopped abiding by the rules
pending a court's decision.

Carmen Alvarez, the lead plaintiff in the suit, is one such
employee that has noticed positive changes, only to have them
taken away.  As an assistant manager, Alvarez regularly worked
about 50 hours a week, and she began to receiving additional pay
temporarily, only to have this revoked. By mid-December, a few
weeks after the injunction, Alvarez was switched back to a flat
salary and told she would no longer receive overtime pay. "I was
disappointed when they changed it back because I thought I would
spend more time with my family or at least get rewarded for the
time that we work," she said.

"There's been no finding that the rule is unlawful," said Joseph
Sellers, a partner at the law firm representing Alvarez. "We think
the rule went into effect and that companies should be paying
people overtime." The order was filed in order to give the court
more time to reach a final decision, since The Labor Department
appealed the injunction last December while it was still under the
Obama administration and now the nation has a new president. In
February, the Trump administration asked for more time to
"consider the issues" and decide how to move forward with the
case. It now has until June 30 to file a brief with the court.

The case has been challenged by 21 states and a slew of business
groups, including the Chamber of Commerce.  And, attorneys
representing Chipotle workers have also handled other high-profile
cases against employers, so they plan to come prepared for battle.

CONCHETTA INC: "Colon" Suit Sent to Arbitration
-----------------------------------------------
In the case captioned JULIEANN COLON, on behalf of herself and all
others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. CONCHETTA, INC. d/b/a
CLUB RISQUE; RT, 413, INC. d/b/a CLUB RISQUE; TACONY 2008 INC.
d/b/a CLUB RISQUE; CONNIE INNEZZELLI; DEAN M. PAGANO; RONALD
CRUDELE; THEODORE PAGANO JR; and DOE DEFENDANTS 1-10, Defendants,
Civil Action No. 17-0959 (E.D. Pa.), Judge Robert F. Kelly, Sr.,
of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
Pennsylvania granted the Defendants' Motion to Compel Arbitration
and Dismiss the Proceedings, and to Stay Discovery Pending
Determination of the Motion.

On March 2, 2017, Colon filed the present class action alleging
federal and Pennsylvania state wage violations.  Specifically,
Colon claims she was an exotic dancer at various entities doing
business as "Club Risque."  The essence of her Complaint is that
she and others are entitled to damages because the Defendants
improperly classify exotic dancers as "independent contractors."
Thus, Colon claims that the Defendants have, inter alia, violated
federal and Pennsylvania state law relating to the failure to pay
the applicable minimum wage; failure to pay overtime compensation
in excess of forty hours; improper collection of a portion of tips
the dancers receive from the public; and improper subsidization of
the businesses by requiring a portion of tips to be forfeited to
management and employees who do not regularly receive tips.

On April 11, 2017, the Defendants filed a Motion to Compel
Arbitration and Dismiss the Proceedings, and to Stay Discovery
Pending Determination of the Motion, which relies upon an
arbitration provision contained in a "Performer License and
Temporary Space Lease Agreement."  Colon filed a Response in
Opposition, the Defendants filed a Reply Brief, and Colon filed a
Notice of Supplemental Authority.

Judge Kelly held that the parties have shown clear and
unmistakable evidence that they agreed to delegate all threshold
issues regarding arbitrability to the arbitrator.  Supreme Court
and Third Circuit precedent dictates that unless a party
challenges the specific agreement to arbitrate arbitrability
(i.e., the delegation clause), the provision is severable from the
remainder of the contract and is valid under Section 2 of the FAA
and enforceable under Sections 3 and 4.  Because Colon does not
specifically challenge the delegation clause in the Agreement, it
is fully enforceable under binding precedent.  Further, Judge
Kelly finds that the principles of agency and equitable estoppel
are applicable in this matter, and he will order arbitration as to
all the Defendants.  Lastly, in light of the Defendants' request
for a stay, he will stay this matter and administratively close it
pending the resolution of arbitration.

FCA US: Bid for Summary Judgment in "Victorino" Denied
------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned CARLOS VICTORINO and ADAM TAVITIAN,
individually, and on behalf of other members of the general public
similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. FCA US LLC, a Delaware limited
liability company, Defendant, Case No. 16cv1617-GPC(JLB) (S.D.
Cal.), Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel of the United States District Court
for the Southern District of California denied the Defendant's
motion for summary judgment and ex parte motion to strike.

The Plaintiffs bring this purported class action complaint based
on defects in the 2013-2016 Dodge Dart vehicles equipped with a
Fiat C635 manual transmission that cause the vehicles' clutches to
fail and stick to the floor.  The Defendant designs, manufactures,
markets, distributes, services, repairs, sells and leases
passenger vehicles, including the Plaintiffs' vehicles.  The
Plaintiffs assert that the manual transmission in their vehicles
contains a design defect that causes the clutch pedal to lose
pressure, stick to the floor, and fail to engage/disengage gears.
As a result, the vehicles equipped with the defective manual
transmission experience stalling, failure to accelerate, and
premature failure of the transmission's components.

Victorino purchased a 2014 manual-transmission Dodge Dart on or
about March 22, 2014 while Tavitian purchased his 2013 manual-
transmission Dodge Dart in late November 2012.

On Aug. 15, 2014, the Defendant released STAR Case S1406000001
concerning "Clutch Pedal Does not Return (Remains on the Floor)
After Depressing the Pedal."  It instructs technicians to replace
the clutch master cylinder but not the master cylinder reservoir
hose.  The same Star Case S1406000001 was re-released on Feb. 26,
2015 and instructs technicians to replace the clutch master
cylinder and the reservoir hose.  On Aug. 24, 2015, a third
version of Star Case S1406000001 was re-released.

On Jan. 8, 2016, Service Bulletin 06-001-16 with the Subject,
"Clutch Pedal Operation X62 Extended Warranty" involved the
replacement of the hydraulic clutch master cylinder and reservoir
hose of the two models of vehicles, including the 2013-2014 Dodge
Dart to address a "reduction in clutch pedal stroke."  On Aug. 26,
2016, Service Bulletin 06-001-16 REV. A, "Clutch Pedal Operation
X62 Extended Warranty" superseded the prior Service Bulletin to
include additional model year of 2013-2015 Dodge Darts.

According to the Plaintiffs, the X62 Extended Warranty was a
voluntary service action in response to the case of Hardt v.
Chrysler Group LLC, a purported class action filed on Aug. 27,
2014 alleging a transmission defect in 2013-2014 Dodge Dart
vehicles making almost the same allegations concerning the defect
alleged in this case.  The parties acknowledge that the X62
Extended Warranty was a voluntary service action implemented by
FCA US to address an issue involving seal-swelling from the use of
a particular kind of leaching plasticizer in a reservoir hose in
the clutch system.

In this case, the Plaintiffs argue that the voluntary service
action, that resulted from the case of Hardt case fixed part of
the problem but not all of it.  The Hardt action settled on an
individual basis and the Defendant implemented the X62 Extended
Warranty and related service bulletins purportedly to provide
complete relief to all Class Members concerning the transmission
defect.  According to the Plaintiffs, this did not fix the defect
and the Plaintiffs filed this action.

The Defendant moves for summary judgment arguing that the
Plaintiffs have not presented any evidence of a defect in the
clutch master cylinder that allows "debris" to contaminate
internal and external seals but instead the evidence shows that
the symptoms are due to normal wear and tear.

During the pendency of the motion for summary judgment, on June 7,

FIVE GUYS: Faces Potential Class Action Over FCRA Violations
-----------------------------------------------------------
Thomas Ahearn, writing for ESR Check, reports that a potential
class action lawsuit brought by a former employee against Five
Guys claims the popular burger chain violated the federal Fair
Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and California labor law by conducting
background checks on employees without properly notifying them,
according to a report from BigClassAction.com.

BigClassAction.com reports that the plaintiff, Jeremy R. Lusk,
claims Five Guys "regularly secured credit and background reports
on employees, conducted background checks on potential, current,
and former employees, and used this information to make hiring
decisions without providing clear disclosures."

Lusk claims that Five Guys violated the FCRA -- which promotes the
accuracy, fairness, and privacy of consumer information contained
in the files of consumer reporting agencies -- and California's
Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act (CCRAA) and Investigative
Consumer Reporting Agencies Act (ICRAA).

BigClassAction.com reports that Lusk seeks to represent several
classes, including an FCRA class of all current, former and
prospective employees in the United States over the last five
years and ICRAA and CCRAA classes of California workers and
applicants within the last five and seven years, respectively.
The case is Jeremy R. Lusk v. Five Guys Enterprises LLC et al.,
case number 1:17-cv-00762, in the U.S. District Court for the
Eastern District of California, Fresno Division.  [GN]


FRANKLIN RESOURCES: Cryer Seeks Cert. of Plan Participants Class
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiff in the lawsuit entitled MARLON H. CRYER,
individually and on behalf of a class of all others similarly
situated, and on behalf of the Franklin Templeton 401(k)
Retirement Plan v. FRANKLIN RESOURCES, INC., the Franklin
Templeton 401(k) Retirement Plan Investment Committee, and DOES 1-
25, Case No. 4:16-cv-04265-CW (N.D. Cal.), moves for an order
certifying this class:

     All participants in the Franklin Templeton 401(k) Retirement
     Plan from July 28, 2010 to the date of judgment.  Excluded
     from the class are Defendants, Defendants' fiduciaries, and
     Defendants' immediate families.

Alternatively, Mr. Cryer asks the Court to certify his claims for
injunctive and declaratory relief under Rule 23(b)(2) of the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and his claims for legal relief
under Rule 23(b)(3).  He also asks the Court to designate the law
firms, Bailey & Glasser LLP and Izard Kindall & Raabe LLP as co-
lead counsel, and Creitz & Serebin LLP as local and liaison
counsel pursuant to Rule 23(g).

Mr. Cryer was a participant in the Franklin Templeton 401(k)
Retirement Plan during the proposed class period.  He sues on
behalf of the Plan under Section 502(a)(2) of the Employee
Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, seeking relief
for the Plan as a whole and, thus, for all of the participants and
beneficiaries in this 401(k) defined contribution and individual
account plan.

The Court will commence a hearing on July 11, 2017, at 2:30 p.m.,
to consider the Motion.

J. CREW: Class Action Needs to Be Amended, Court Rules
------------------------------------------------------
Chandra Lye, writing for Legal News Line, reports that a class
action lawsuit against J. Crew will need to be amended before it
will be considered, a recent decision by a U.S. district court
judge stated.

The decision was the response to a request to dismiss the case.

In the complaint, plaintiff Dana Delman claimed J. Crew misled
consumers with what seemed to be discounted products but turned
out not to be so.

The issue was with the J. Crew Factory website, which lists Valued
At prices along with Your Price, which the court stated may
confuse consumers.

"The goods offered for sale on the Factory website were
specifically manufactured for sale on the Factory website to
resemble those items sold at J. Crew's higher priced stores, but
are of inferior quality," wrote Judge Michael Fitzgerald, of the
Central District of California.

"Despite the promise of a discount implicit in the comparison
between the Valued At and Your Price sales prices, J. Crew is in
fact selling the goods available on the Factory website at full
price."

The order indicates that Delman hired an expert to look into the
claims by J. Crew that the Valued At price was what other
retailers were offering for similar type of products. The expert
was not able to find comparable prices at other retailers.

Delman originally filed the lawsuit on Dec. 13 in the U.S.
District Court for the District of Central California. The
defendants filed to dismiss the case in March, and Delman filed
her opposition to the dismissal on April 10.

The court wrote in its decision that the motion was partially
granted and partially denied.

"Plaintiff's theory regarding defendant's allegedly deceptive
advertising is viable as currently pled, and plaintiff has
standing to pursue her claims for injunctive relief," the court's
opinion states.

Yet, the court noted that Delman did not "allege sufficient facts"
and that she failed to give appropriate notice to the defendants.
However, Fitzgerald wrote that failure did not require the
dismissal of the case. Instead, he stated that Delman should file
an amended complaint.

"If, 30 days after the notice is served upon defendants neither
party has filed notice that defendants have abated their allegedly
improper conduct, plaintiff's CLRA claims as alleged in the
forthcoming second amended complaint shall become operative," the
court stated. [GN]

JUNO THERAPEUTICS: Bid to Dismiss Securities Suit Denied
--------------------------------------------------------
Judge Ricardo S. Martinez of the United States District Court for
the Western District of Seattle denied the Defendants motion to
dismiss the case captioned In re: JUNO THERAPEUTICS, INC., Case
No. C16-1069RSM (W.D. Wash.).

This is a putative class action filed on behalf of persons or
entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Juno common stock
between June 4, 2016, and Nov. 22, 2016, seeking to pursue
remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934.

Lead Plaintiff Gilbert Hoang Nguyen and named plaintiff Jiayi Wan,
individually and on behalf of all other persons similarly
situated, bring this action against Juno and the individual
Defendants Hans E. Bishop, Steven D. Harr, and Mark J. Gilbert.

The Plaintiffs allege that throughout the Class Period, the
Defendants repeatedly touted positive results from an incomplete
preliminary Phase I trial for JCAR015, and recklessly failed to
tell investors that patients were dying from the toxic side
effects associated with JCAR015 in the Company's Phase II/ROCKET
trial that the Company initiated in the third quarter of 2015.

In December 2015, Juno decided to introduce a combination of two
chemotherapies, cyclophosphamide and fludarabine, to eradicate a
patient's existing T-cells before the injection of JCAR015 into
the patients enrolled in the Phase II/ROCKET trial.  It claimed
that the combination would increase the efficacy of the Phase
II/ROCKET trial.

On July 7, 2016, the Defendants disclosed that the FDA had
instructed the Company to halt the trial after one patient had
died in May of 2016 and two more patients died thereafter.  On
this news, Juno's stock price fell by more than 30%.  Juno then
delayed the launch date of JCAR015 to 2018, impacting its ability
to be the first to market a Car-T therapy for Acute Lymphoblastic
Leukemia.

On July 12, 2016, after telling the FDA that it was the
fludarabine combined with JCAR015 that led to the deaths, the
Defendants convinced the FDA to lift the hold and enroll patients
in the Phase II/ROCKET trial by utilizing only cyclophosphamide as
a preconditioning regimen to attack a patient's existing T-cells.
Upon the market learning that the hold had been lifted, the price
of Juno common stock rose 9.4%, closing at $30.42 on July 13, 2016
from its previous day closing price of $27.79.

The Plaintiffs allege that the Individual Defendants in this case
reaped over $15 million from sales of Juno stock during the Class
Period, and that these sales were dramatically out of line with
their previous sale of Juno stock.

The Defendants filed their motion to dismiss arguing that the
Plaintiffs fail to plead certain necessary elements of their
securities claims.  In response, the Plaintiffs argue that their
pleading is adequate to satisfy the Rule 12(b)(6) standard, the
Private Securities Litigation Reform Act, and Rule 9(b).

Having reviewed the relevant pleadings and the remainder of the
record, the Court denied the Defendants' motion to dismiss.

     ii) worked in excess of forty (40) hours during any given
     workweek.

As former CoRE Recruiters, who worked in excess of 40 hours a week

Hardesty, Madeline Hickey, and Derek Chipman are all members of
this proposed class.

The Named Plaintiffs also ask the Court to approve their attached
notices to be sent to the Ohio class and to require that Defendant
Kroger supplement the putative class member list previously
produced with any updated contact information, together with any
additional individuals, who have since become employed as CoRE
Recruiters.

LABORATORY CORPORATION: Seeks to Dismiss Class Action on Pricing
----------------------------------------------------------------
Isaac Groves, writing for The Times News, reports that Laboratory
Corporation of America is asking a federal District Court to throw
out a class-action suit filed in March, saying it would mean
having a court set prices for its medical tests, and the
plaintiffs' complaints are too varied for it to be a "class."

The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District
of North Carolina, alleges LabCorp overcharges patients for
medical tests that their benefit providers didn't cover, calling
it a deceptive trade practice.

In its response, LabCorp counters that "differential pricing" is a
"nearly universal practice" in many industries, including car
dealerships, hotels and airlines, "of selling goods to different
types of buyers at different prices," and is not illegal.

The company claims also that the plaintiffs' request to order
LabCorp not to "engage in the unlawful and inequitable conduct"
alleged in the complaint would mean setting "the prices of more
than [1,000] laboratory services provided across the country to
millions of patients for an indefinite period of time," according
to LabCorp's memo to the court supporting its motion to dismiss
the suit.

LabCorp says the plaintiffs don't claim it charged them for tests
it didn't perform or its work was unsatisfactory, or even that it
denied them information about the cost of tests that weren't
covered, just that they wanted to pay less than they were charged,
and "excessive prices do not constitute unfair or deceptive trade
practices" in any of the plaintiffs' states.

Additionally, the medical testing company points out, the suit
against it claims the company charges individuals prices for tests
"that are frequently more than 10 times greater than fair-market
value rates," but never defines "fair-market rates," and doing so
would mean the court establishing prices for more than 1,000
tests.

So far, there are four named plaintiffs from New York, California,
Tennessee and Maryland, though the suit is open to anyone charged
more individually than LabCorp charges to government health plans
or private insurers. In fact, the law firm filing the suit, Wolf
Popper LLC, which specializes in class-action suits, encourages
anyone who might qualify to contact the firm. The firm is also
suing LabCorp's biggest competitor, Quest Diagnostics, over its
fees, according to PRNewswire.

LabCorp counters these individuals do not have enough in common to
qualify as a "class" under federal law. For instance, three of the
plaintiffs had private insurance, each of which negotiate their
own rates with LabCorp and cover different tests, and the fourth
was covered under Medicare, which sets prices without negotiating
and has a different set of policies. Each also is complaining
about the costs of different tests in different places at
different times, making them unique circumstances.

The suit also charges LabCorp's billing is confusing and keeps
patients from being able to tell they are paying significantly
more than their insurers would have, which the firm called the
ability to "hide the ball."

LabCorp claims the plaintiffs can't show their bills are
deceptive, and the company is not obliged to break out the price
insurers pay for individual tests.

LabCorp, the largest private local employer, according to the
Alamance Chamber, with 2,500 employees, is registered in Delaware
and has its headquarters in downtown Burlington. [GN]

MCAFEE INC: Software Customers Can Claim Settlement Payments
------------------------------------------------------------
Keith Schweigert, writing for FOX43, reports that if you are a US
customer who bought McAfee or Intel Security consumer software
between January 10, 2010 and February 10, 2015, you may be
entitled to benefits from a class action settlement, according to
announcement on the settlement's website.

Cash payments and value certificates to eligible class members
began today.

The lawsuits claim that McAfee violated certain California
statutes and common law with regard to its auto-renewal practices
and its advertisements of discounts and reference prices.
Plaintiffs sought restitution, injunctive relief, attorneys' fees
and costs.

McAfee denies that it did anything wrong.

Both sides agreed to settle to avoid the expenses, inconveniences,
risks, and interferences with ongoing business operations that are
associated with litigation, according to the FAQ section of the
settlement's website.

Only class members in the Auto-Renewal Class are eligible to
receive payments. According to the settlement's website, eligible
customers should have received a notice containing a claim number
beginning with AUT or BOT. Customers who received a notice
beginning with REF are not eligible, the website says. [GN]


MDL 2438: Court Denies Class Certification Bid
----------------------------------------------
The Hon. Philip S. Gutierrez denied the Plaintiffs' motion for
class certification and granted in part and denied in part the
Defendants' motions to exclude the Plaintiffs' experts in the
lawsuit captioned In re 5-Hour Energy Marketing and Sales
Practices Litigation, Case No. 2:13-ml-02438-PSG-PLA (C.D. Cal.).

Before the District Court is Plaintiffs Marc Adler, Michael Casey,
David Ellis, William Forrest, Ilya Podobedov, Cody Soto, and Donna
Thompson's motion for class certification and Defendants
Innovation Ventures, LLC; Living Essentials, LLC; Manoj Bhargava;
and Bio Clinical Development, Inc.'s motions to exclude experts
Patrick T. Ronaldson and Colin B. Weir, according to a civil
minutes.  The District Court finds the matter appropriate for
decision without oral argument.

On August 4, 2011, Plaintiffs Ilya Podobedov, Jordan Moussouros,
and Richard N. James filed the putative class action against
Defendants Innovation Ventures, LLC; Living Essentials, LLC; Manoj
Bhargava; and Bio Clinical Development, Inc. in the District Court
(Podobedov v. Living Essentials, LLC, Case No. CV 11-6408 PSG
(PLAx).

In June 2013, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation
centralized a number of cases related to the marketing and sale of
5-hour ENERGY ("5HE") and assigned the matter to the District
Court for consolidated pretrial proceedings.  On January 24, 2017,
the District Court issued an order granting in part and denying in
part the Defendants' motion for summary judgment.

"In sum, the Court is not convinced that the damages model
proposed in this case adequately matches Plaintiffs' theory of
liability.  The Court finds the deficit in Plaintiffs' damages
model an additional ground for denying class certification, at
least as it applies to the proposed classes in California,
Missouri, New Jersey, and New Mexico, where statutory damages are
not available," Judge Gutierrez said.

"Plaintiffs have failed to demonstrate that common issues
predominate over individual inquiries, and so class certification
is not appropriate under Rule 23(b)(3)," Judge Gutierrez
concluded.

MILLER STARK: Certification of Class Sought in "Zolandz" Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
Cynthia Zolandz moves the Court to certify the class described in
the amended complaint of the lawsuit titled CYNTHIA ZOLANDZ,
Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v.
MILLER STARK KLEIN & ASSOCIATES, Case No. 2:16-cv-01163-WED (E.D.
Wisc.), and further asks that the Court both stay the amended
motion for class certification and to grant the Plaintiff (and the
Defendants) relief from the Local Rules setting automatic briefing
schedules and requiring briefs and supporting material to be filed
with the Motion.

Dicta in the Supreme Court's decision in Campbell-Ewald Co. v.
Gomez, left open the possibility that a defendant facing a class
action complaint could moot a class representative's case by
depositing funds equal to or in excess of the maximum value of the
plaintiff's individual claim with the court and having the court
enter judgment in the plaintiff's favor prior to the filing of a
class certification motion, the Plaintiff asserts, citing
Campbell-Ewald Co. v. Gomez, 136 S. Ct. 663, 672 (2016).

To avoid the risk of a defendant mooting a putative class
representative's individual stake in the litigation, the Seventh
Circuit instructed plaintiffs to file a certification motion with
the complaint, along with a motion to stay briefing on the
certification motion.  Damasco v. Clearwire Corp., 662 F.3d 891,
896 (7th Cir. 2011), overruled on other grounds, Chapman v. First
Index, Inc., 796 F.3d 783, 787 (7th Cir. 2015) ("The pendency of
that motion [for class certification] protects a putative class
from attempts to buy off the named plaintiffs.").

The Plaintiff is obligated to move for class certification to
protect the interests of the putative class, the Plaintiff
contends.  More than one defendant has already attempted the
scheme contemplated in Campbell-Ewald.  See Severns v. Eastern
Account Systems of Connecticut, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-1168, 2016
U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23164 (E.D. Wis. Feb. 24, 2016).  Judge Randa
denied the defendant's request to deposit funds on grounds that a
class certification motion was pending.

As the 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
short motion to certify and stay should suffice until an amended
motion is filed, the Plaintiff contends.

The Plaintiff also asks to be appointed as class representative,
and for the appointment of Ademi & O'Reilly, LLP, as class
counsel.

MOMS IN MOTION: Court Refuses to Certify Class in "Larue" Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Glen E. Conrad denies the Plaintiff's motion for
conditional certification of the collective action entitled
MARYANN LARUE v. MOMS IN MOTION, INC., Case No. 7:17-cv-00162-GEC
(W.D. Va.).

The case is brought pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act.  The
Plaintiff claims that Moms In Motion violated the FLSA by
misclassifying her and others as exempt employees and by failing
to pay overtime compensation.

"Here, plaintiff rests her motion for conditional class
certification entirely upon the unsupported allegations of her
complaint.  Without more, the court is unable to grant conditional
certification," Judge Conrad opines.  "Plaintiff is afforded the
opportunity to refile the motion, including supporting exhibits,
if plaintiff wishes to do so," Judge Conrad adds.

MURRAY GOULBURN: ACCC Wants Filed Case Heard Before Class Action
----------------------------------------------------------------
Georgia Wilkins, writing for the Sidney Morning Herald, reports
that the competition watchdog is pushing to have its case against
the nation's biggest milk processor Murray Goulburn tried before a
class action threatens to drag the matter out.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission launched
Federal Court proceedings against Murray Goulburn and its former
chief executive in April over claims they misled and treated
farmers unfairly.

The claims relate to representations made by Murray Goulburn to
its Southern Milk Region dairy farmers about the average farmgate
milk price (FMP) it expected to pay them during financial year
2015/16.

The commission alleges that Murray Goulburn misled farmers into
thinking they would get as high a price as $6.05 for the season
when in fact that was not the case.

Managing director Gary Helou and former chief financial officer
Bradley Hingle were knowingly involved in the behaviour, the ACCC
alleges.

A separate class action was filed in May last year by investors
over allegedly misleading the market ahead of its float last year.

The ACCC said in submissions on June 8 that trying the cases
together would delay proceedings because of significant
differences between the two.

It said the class action related to misleading conduct towards
investors, whereas the ACCC's claim is for unconscionable and
false, misleading or deceptive conduct towards farmers.

Meanwhile, Mr Helou's lawyers said the ACCC's submission had a
"high level of generality" and contained "no details or
particulars".

"[The submission] omits critical information and does not properly
identify the conduct, facts and knowledge relied upon by the
ACCC," they said.

Justice Jonathan Beach has ordered the ACCC file a detailed
statement of claim by July 21.

The ACCC is seeking penalties from former executives rather than
the co-operative in order to avoid any penalty costs flowing on to
farmers.

Mr. Helou and Mr. Hingle face disqualification orders and
penalties of up to $220,000 per breach.

The class action was lodged by investor advocate, Mark Elliott on
behalf of investor John Webster, who will act as lead plaintiff in
the case.

Mr. Helou resigned from the company in April 2016 amid a profit
downgrade in April 2016. He left the top job less than a year
after Murray Goulburn's partial float on the ASX, which raised
$500 million from investors. [GN]


NATIONAL CREDIT: Certification of Class Sought in "Al" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------
Adel Al moves the Court to certify the class described in the
complaint of the lawsuit entitled ADEL AL, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. NATIONAL CREDIT
ADJUSTERS, LLC and REVIVER FINANCIAL, LLC, Case No. 2:17-cv-00816-
DEJ (E.D. Wisc.), and further asks that the Court both stay the
motion for class certification and to grant the Plaintiff (and the

NETFLIX INC: M. DuDash Named Lead Plaintiff in "Ziolkowski"
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned JAMES ZIOLKOWSKI, Plaintiff, v. NETFLIX,
INC., et al., Defendants, Case No. 17-cv-01070-HSG (N.D. Cal.),
Judge Haywood S. Gilliam, Jr., of the United States District Court
for the Northern District of California denied Linda Bagley's
motion seeking appointment of herself as Lead Plaintiff and
approval of Levi & Korsinky, LLP, as lead counsel; and granted
Michael DuDash's motion seeking appointment of himself as Lead
Plaintiff and approval of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC, and Finkelstein
& Krinsk, LLP, as lead counsel.

On March 1, 2017, the Plaintiff filed this securities class action
lawsuit individually and on behalf of others who acquired common
stock of Netflix during the period between July 22, 2014 and Oct.
15, 2014, and consequently suffered damages.  Also on March 1,
2017, notice of this suit was published in GlobeNewswire.  The
complaint asserts claims under Section 10(a) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, 15 U.S.C. Section 78j(b) &
78t(a), and Rule 10b-5, 17 C.F.R. Section 240.10b-5.  The
complaint names the following Defendants: Netflix, its CEO, Reed
Hastings; and its CFO, David Wells.

On May 1, 2017, Bagley's motion and DuDash's motion, the two
competing motions for appointment as lead plaintiff and approval
of lead counsel were filed.  On May 15, 2017, Bagley filed a
notice of non-opposition with respect to these competing motions
because she appeared not to have the largest financial interest in
the relief sought by the class' as required by the by the PSLRA.
Also on May 15, 2017, DuDash filed an opposition representing that
he was the presumptive lead plaintiff as well as a notice of
unopposed motion.  Accordingly, DuDash's motion is now unopposed.

Judge Gilliam denied Bagley's motion and granted DuDash's motion.
DuDash is appointed as Lead Plaintiff for the putative class.  KSF
and F&K are approved as lead counsel for the putative class.
Having reviewed the parties' proposed schedule for filing an
amended complaint and a motion to dismiss, the Court set the
following schedule: amended complaint by Aug. 14, 2017; motion to
dismiss by Oct. 13, 2017; opposition by Nov. 27, 2017; reply by
Dec. 27, 2017; hearing on Jan. 11, 2018, at 2:00 p.m.; further
case management conference on April 17, 2018, at 2:00 p.m.

NEW ORLEANS, LA: "Anderson" Class Certification Vacated
-------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned THOMAS ANDERSON, PAMELA DAVENPORT, EVELLE
THOMAS, JUNE HARVEY, JOSEPH WONG, INDIVIDUALLY AND ON BEHALF OF
THOSE SIMILARLY SITUATED, ALL PERSON EXPOSED TO CHEMICALS AT 2400
CANAL STREET, v. CITY OF NEW ORLEANS, No. 2016-CA-1013 (La. App.),
the Court of Appeal of Louisiana, Fourth Circuit, vacated the
trial court judgment granting a class certification and remanded
for further proceedings.

The City of New Orleans is the owner of a building known as the
"City Hall Annex" located at 2400 Canal Street, in New Orleans,
Louisiana.  In a Petition for Damages filed on May 12, 2000, the
Plaintiffs claimed to have suffered personal injuries as a result
of their exposure to dangerous levels of hazardous chemicals
including potassium hydroxide, hydrochloric acid and hydrofiboric
acid.

The Plaintiffs alleged that the City was aware that hazardous,
dangerous chemicals were present at the Annex, but nonetheless
ordered petitioners and those similarly situated to work in this
dangerous environment.

The Petition then reiterates that the class action is instituted
pursuant to the provisions of La.C.C.P. Article 591, et seq., by
the Plaintiffs and all similarly situated persons who have
sustained damages arising or resulting from the circumstances,
events, acts and omissions complained of, specifically, all
persons who sustained harm due to the presence of and exposure to
hazardous chemicals at the building at 2400 Canal Street.

By way of an amending petition filed on April 6, 2001, the
Plaintiffs added Pan Am as a Defendant to this suit, alleging that
the chemicals stored at the Annex were placed there by Pan Am and
that the storage of the chemicals created an unreasonably
dangerous condition for subsequent occupants of the Annex.  After
the trial court granted a dilatory exception of vagueness filed by
Pan Am, the Plaintiffs amended their petition to clarify that Pan
Am was the former owner of the Annex and that Pan Am used the
chemicals to clean its printing presses.  According to them, the
contamination of the building persisted until the chemicals were
removed in December 1999, although the building remained
contaminated thereafter.

The Plaintiffs filed a Third Amended Petition on June 22, 2005, to
add Poydras Square, Inc., and New Orleans Centre Associates, a
Louisiana partnership in commendam, as Defendants.  In this third
petition, they alleged that Poydras Square owned the property
after Pan Am and that, while Poydras Square did not buy the
chemicals stored at the Annex, it allowed the chemicals to remain
on the property during the period of its ownership, failed to
dispose of them or engage in clean-up measures, and failed to warn
of the dangers associated with the chemicals.

Over the next nine years, the parties filed various pleadings,
including cross-claims, motions for summary judgment and various
other motions.  Then, for four days in September and October 2015,
the trial court held a hearing on the issues of class
certification.  By judgment dated June 30, 2016, the trial court
granted the Plaintiffs' request for class certification.  It is
from this judgment that the City, Pan Am and NID Corp. (the
successor in interest to Poydras Square) timely appealed.

The Court concluded that where the class is not definitively and
specifically identified by the trial court, the objectives of the
class action proceeding cannot be met.  Absent a clear class
action definition by the trial court, a judgment cannot be
reviewed on appeal.  It therefore vacated the trial court judgment
and remanded for further proceedings.

NEXTEP FUNDING: Prayitno Seeks Certification of Three Classes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Chan-Li Prayitno asks the Court to enter an order determining that
the action captioned CHAN-LI PRAYITNO on behalf of plaintiff and
the class members defined below v. NEXTEP FUNDING LLC, Case No.
1:17-cv-04310 (N.D. Ill.), may proceed as a class action against

The Plaintiff defines three classes:

   (1) For purposes of Count I, alleging violation of the Truth
       in Lending Act, 15 U.S.C. Section 1601 et seq. ("TILA")
       and Regulation Z, 12 C.F.R. part 1026, by documenting
       high-interest consumer loans as leases, plaintiff seeks to
       represent a class consisting of (a) all persons in
       Illinois, Wisconsin or Indiana (b) who signed a document
       similar to that in Appendix A (c) financing the
       acquisition of services (d) on or after a date one year
       prior to the filing of this action, and on or before a
       date 21 days after the filing of this action;

   (2) For purposes of Count II, alleging violation of the
       Illinois Interest Act, 815 ILCS 205/4, and the Illinois
       Consumer Installment Loan Act, 205 ILCS 670/1 et seq.,
       through the making of disguised high-interest consumer
       loans without a license to do so, plaintiff seeks to
       represent a class consisting of (a) all persons in
       Illinois (b) who signed a document similar to that in
       Appendix A (c) financing the acquisition of services (d)
       where the annual percentage rate, based on the price of
       the services and the payments required, exceeds 9%
       (believed to be the case in all transactions) (e) where
       the transaction was outstanding on or after a date 2 years
       prior to the filing of this action; and

   (3) For purposes of Count III, alleging violation of the
       Illinois Consumer Fraud Act, 815 ILCS 505/2, by engaging
       in the same conduct that is the subject of Counts I and

NORTH POINT: Court Denies Pecor's Bid to Certify Class of Dancers
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. William C. Griesbach denied the Plaintiff's motion for
conditional certification in the lawsuit captioned KRISTA PECOR,
on behalf of herself and a class of employees or former employees
similarly situated v. NORTH POINT EDC INC., d/b/a North Point
Exotic Dance Club, DAVID NICHOLS, and BILLIE JO RANSOM, Case No.
1:16-cv-01263-WCG (E.D. Wisc.).

Krista Pecor, a dancer at North Point EDC, Inc., d/b/a North Point
Exotic Dance Club, located in Peshtigo, Wisconsin, brought the
putative collective action on behalf of herself and other
similarly situated employees against the Defendants for alleged
violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act.  She alleges that the
Defendants misclassified her and other exotic dancers at North
Point as independent contractors and failed to pay them the
statutory minimum wage and overtime wages.

In his decision and order, Judge Griesbach opines that Ms. Pecor
has failed to demonstrate a reasonable basis that she is similarly
situated to potential class members.

"Dancers at North Point individually negotiate their agreements
with the club, work variable hours based upon their individual
availability, receive differing levels of compensation based on
factors unique to the dancer, and do not dance exclusively at any
one dance club.  These factors demonstrate all the dancers who
work or have worked at North Point are not similarly situated.
Accordingly, Pecor's motion for conditional class certification is
denied," Judge Griesbach ruled.

Judge Griesbach directed the Clerk of Court to place the matter on
the Court's calendar for a telephone conference to address further
scheduling.

OREGON: Judge Sides with Class Action Members on State Motions
--------------------------------------------------------------
Alex Paul, writing for Albany Democrat-Herald, reports that a
judge has struck down a number of motions to dismiss a $1.4
billion class-action lawsuit against the Oregon Department of
Forestry, a move that could clear the way for the case to go to
trial next summer.

The June 7 ruling from Linn County Circuit Court Judge Daniel
Murphy came in response to arguments raised at an April 20 hearing
in the lawsuit.

The suit argues that changes in management practices on state
forest trust lands have resulted in declining timber harvests, and
a drop in payments to government entities in the counties that
include the lands. The suit was filed by the Linn County Board of
Commissioners but now also includes about 140 other members in the
class as plaintiffs.

"We moved against 12 of their defenses and we prevailed on all
12," said John DiLorenzo, who represents the plaintiffs in the
class action, which was originally brought by the Linn County
Board of Commissioners. "That means those defenses are no longer
available to the state at trial."

Dilorenzo said Murphy's latest ruling makes it appear, "This case
is destined for trial next summer. I'm looking forward to
vindicating the interests of rural Oregon."

DiLorenzo said that Murphy's previous ruling that the statute of
limitations does not apply was critical.

"Otherwise, we could only seek damages back six years," he said.
"Now, we can go back to when dirt was formed."

The state did not respond to requests for comment.

In the suit, Linn County and other taxing districts assert that
the Oregon Department of Forestry has breached a decades-old
contract to manage some 700,000 acres of state forest lands for
the "greatest permanent value."

About 21,000 acres of those lands are in Linn County and are known
as the Santiam State Forest.

Class members assert that the phrase "greatest permanent value"
should have been interpreted to maximize timber harvests. The
lawsuit charges that for at least 17 years the Oregon Department
of Forestry has increasingly managed those lands by giving other
values, such as recreation or fisheries, greater value and
therefore did not provide the counties and other taxing districts
with an additional $35 million per year.

Although the Oregon Department of Forestry has the authority to
make and change rules regarding timber harvesting and management,
"that does not constitute a defense to the consequential breach of
contract assertion that allegedly flowed from those rules."

That even though the taxing districts involved in the class action
lawsuit have been receiving payments for years without filing a
lawsuit, they still have the right to seek remedies for
nonperformance by the state.

That although the state was working within federal Endangered
Species Act and Clean Water Act regulations, the class action
participants still have the right to allege breach of contract and
that the amount of damages can be calculated.

"There was discussion about the difficulty in proving future
damages in this case in defendant's memorandum," Murphy wrote in a
letter to legal counsel. "The court agrees that this could be a
problem for the plaintiff but it is a question of proof, not of
law."

He added, "Future damages, as plead, assumes that the defendants'
conduct does not change in the future, that they will continue
with the same timber policies as well as in the recent past and
that there will not be any other change of circumstances that
could affect damage (e.g., forest fire, tree disease, etc.)."

Roger Nyquist, chairman of the Linn County Board of Commissioners
said of the judge's decisions, "This is a welcome step toward
resolution of the state's breach of contract with the counties and
other taxing districts."

Attorneys for the state did not immediately return an email
seeking comment.

A status conference in the case will be held on Sept. 14.

The parties are in the discovery phase and are scheduling
depositions. Although a court date has not been scheduled, parties
anticipate the projected three-week trial will occur in late
summer or fall 2018. [GN]

ROCHE HOLDING: "Biondolillo" Hits Stock Drop from Drug Combo
------------------------------------------------------------
Thomas Biondolillo, Individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. Roche Holding AG, Severin
Schwan, and Alan Hippe, Defendants, Case No. 3:17-cv-04056 (D.
N.J., June 6, 2017), seeks damages, prejudgment and post-judgment
interest as well as their reasonable attorneys' fees, expert fees
and other costs and such other and further relief under the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Roche is a Switzerland corporation with its principal place
executive offices located at Konzern Hauptsitz Grenzacherstrasse
124, CH-4070 Basel, Schweiz. Roche operates in the pharmaceuticals
and diagnostics businesses worldwide. The Company's subsidiary,
Roche Molecular Systems Inc., maintains offices at Building 500,
1080 U.S. Highway 202, Branchburg, NJ 08876. It product,
Herceptin, is used for the treatment of HER2-positive breast
cancer and HER2-positive metastatic gastric cancer while Perjeta
is a personalized medicine used in combination with Herceptin for
the treatment of patients with previously untreated HER2-positive
metastatic breast cancer.

According to the complaint, Defendants failed to disclose that the
combination of Perjeta and Herceptin is only marginally more
effective than Herceptin alone in preventing breast cancer.
Roche's trial results showed only a marginal benefit from using
said combination. Perjeta allegedly causes severe diarrhea in some
patients.

On this news, shares of Roche fell $1.76 per share or
approximately 5.12% from its previous closing price to close at
$32.61 per share on June 5, 2017, damaging investors including the

SOULCYCLE INC: Judge Denies Dismissal Motion
--------------------------------------------
Christopher Crosby, writing for Law360, reports that a California
federal judge won't block a putative class of consumers from
pursuing claims that SoulCycle's membership contracts violate the
state's laws on gyms, finding on June 7 the suit had cured
deficiencies in standing present in the first complaint.

U.S. District Judge Josephine L. Staton denied SoulCycle Inc.'s
bid to dismiss a putative class action alleging the stationary
cycling studio's contracts fail to include clauses required by
California's Health Studio Services Contract Law notifying
customers of their right to opt out, saying named plaintiff Marko
Cavka had shown the policies, if true, violated the statute.

"SoulCycle's arguments as to why Cavka's allegations are
insufficient are unavailing," Staton wrote. "Nowhere in the terms
and conditions, the rider receipt, or any other document Cavka
alleges he received does SoulCycle inform Cavka of his ability to
cancel his contract and recover his payment."

Cavka's attorney Robert Scott of Newmeyer & Dillion LLP told
Law360 on June 8 that the law was created to keep gym owners from
hoodwinking customers.

"The intent of the statute is to get everything out in the open,
so everyone's on the same page," Scott said.

Cavka alleges he purchased a single $30 class at SoulCycle on its
website in July but had to reschedule and failed to reserve a
class within a designated period, forfeiting his payment to the
company.

While SoulCycle displayed its terms and conditions concerning its
website and mobile app and issued a receipt, Cavka alleges he
never received a full contract, in violation of California's
Unfair Competition Law.

Moreover, Cavka alleges the receipt indicated the company doesn't
accept returns or exchanges. Nor does the contract assure that
customers who become disabled can seek a refund or inform
customers of their right, within five business days, to cancel the
contract, the complaint states. As a result, Cavka says he paid
more for the class than it was worth.

Cavka filed suit in August on behalf of a proposed class of
approximately 100,000 consumers comprising anyone who entered into
a similar contract with SoulCycle in the past four years in a
California superior court. Cavka contends that every SoulCycle
customer agreement in California is "void and unenforceable" under
California law.

The case was removed to federal court in September and the
complaint later amended, but then dismissed on the grounds that
Cavka had failed to show how the supposed violations actually
harmed him. The court did not rule on whether to dismiss the case
on subject matter, instead keeping the door open for Cavka to file
an amended complaint.

On June 7, Judge Staton brushed aside the company's argument that
it properly disclosed the right to cancel in its FAQ section,
saying the information was not brought up during the contracting
process.

Judge Staton said Cavka had adequately alleged he would have
"exercised his statutory rights, timely cancelled the contract,
and avoided forfeiting his payment."

She rejected the company's contention that since Cavka become
aware of his rights under California law the suit should be
tossed, saying notice doesn't mean SoulCycle's "continuing
violation of the HSSCL cannot harm him." Instead, Staton said that
knowing about the violation deters him from entering or signing up
for future classes.

"Absent injunctive relief, Cavka lacks assurance that any future
contract he enters into with SoulCycle complies with the law,"
Staton wrote.

SURFSTITCH: Very Likely to Settle Class Action
----------------------------------------------
Katie Walsh, writing for AFR Weekend, reports that online retailer
SurfStitch was already struggling to keep its proverbial head
above water. Wave after wave of questionable acquisitions and
negative consumer sentiment had washed half a billion dollars from
the surf and skate wear specialist's market value, when the
shareholder class action hit last month.

The young, homegrown company took just three days to indicate it
might raise the white flag and settle.

And settle, it very likely will.

Not because the case against the company -- whose annus horribilis
(and then some) has seen its share price beat an ugly path down to
7cents, from lofty $2 highs -- is strong, although it may well be.
In March last year, co-founder and chief executive Justin Cameron
shocked the market by resigning just a fortnight after the company
backed away from promising earnings forecasts. Multiple profit
downgrades followed, losses ultimately reaching $18.8 million for
the 2016 fiscal year.

SurfStitch chairman Sam Weiss. The homegrown company was hit with
a shareholder class action last month. Jessica Hromas
Not because the lawsuit threatens to dwarf SurfStitch's $18.9
million market capitalisation, although at an initial $100 million
estimate it has the potential to do so.

The reason we know it will settle if it isn't otherwise dropped is
simple: they all do. And the earlier it happens, the less a
company pays.

No securities class action has ever come to judgment

Almost two decades since Australia's first securities class action
lawsuit -- against insurer GIO for advising shareholders to knock
back an AMP takeover offer that may have doubled returns -- none
of the more than 50 claims brought have made it to judgment.

The vast majority don't make it to trial. Commonly, they are
backed by funders who investigate and finance lawsuits, taking a
cut if successful.

"The economics are simple. The longer that funders wait to receive
returns and the higher their costs in achieving them, the higher
the returns they need to meet their business case," says
Gilbert+Tobin partner Crispian Lynch.

In the US, a claim that settles within two years of the suit being
filed does so for a median of $US5.8 million. That figure
gradually increases as the suit drags on, averaging $US12.7
million at five or more years.

"The anecdotal experience in Australia is the same," says Lynch.

$3.5 billion in settlements

Around half of all class actions -- dominated by shareholder,
product liability and consumer protection matters -- settle within
two years of filing, at roughly one third of the damages claim. To
date, more than $3.5 billion in court-approved settlements have
been reached over the nation's 25-year regime; the estimate for
shareholder actions is $1.3 billion.

Only a handful of shareholder actions are filed each year, but the
growth trajectory and an increasingly sophisticated, hawkish
oversight of company statements, regulatory investigations and
media controversies has companies worried.

"Listed companies in particular face much greater exposure to
class actions today than they did 25 years ago," says Lynch.

"That's consistent with the trend in the US, where 40 per cent or
more of listed companies have been targeted for class actions."

In the US, only 15 of 4500 actions filed since 1996 have gone to
judgment. Settlements are estimated at $US88 billion and insurance
for directors of leading companies costs six times what it might
in Europe.

Partner at law firm Allens, Jenny Campbell, says the fact that so
many class actions settle "should not been seen as indicative of
those claims having merit".

"Settlement is usually a commercial decision made having regard to
the uncertainties, costs and distraction of class action
litigation."

The absence of a final judgment means some important legal
questions are yet to be resolved, creating "risk for both sides"
and acting as a "driver for settlement", Campbell adds. That
includes vexed questions on what to do when multiple plaintiff
lawyers and funders chase the same action.

Quickly raising the white flag

The shareholder class action filed in the Supreme Court of
Queensland against SurfStitch on Tuesday May 23 was not the first
to loom. Gadens law firm revealed it was considering filing
against the embattled retailer a year ago. On June 7, Gadens sent
correspondence to SurfStitch "threatening to commence a further
open class action . . . .  apparently on the same basis as the
class action already commenced". In an ASX statement, SurfStitch
said that would be "an abuse of process".

The claim filed by Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, led by
partner Damian Scattini and backed by litigation funder Vannin
Capital, accuses the company of breaching continuous disclosure
obligations by over-egging profit forecasts and misleading and
deceptive conduct relating to acquisitions.

The next day, the ASX agreed to call a trading halt. By the next
Friday, SurfStitch announced to the market that "amongst other
options, a negotiated settlement ... at a level that would permit
the company's continued financial viability, should be fully
explored and assessed". While "unknown", the level of damages
sought were "likely to be substantial and, as such, material by
comparison to the current market capitalisation of the company",
it said.

The Supreme Court of Queensland judge Peter Applegarth agreed to
put the matter on ice for 14 days while the parties discuss
matters -- including possible settlement terms. They return to
court on June 19.

New funders ride the wave

Isle of Man and UK-based funder Vannin Capital is relatively new
to the Australian scene but already has 15 per cent of its more
than $500 million in funds invested here, mostly in commercial
litigation and plaintiff class actions.

It has entered an increasingly competitive space, where multiple
funders are challenging the traditional dominance of the market
darling IMF Bentham. IMF is still the trusted giant in the space -
- a "known entity", having started in Australia in 2001. Today,
more than half of its $3.2 billion global portfolio is in
Australia and it boasts a 90 per cent success rate, recovering $2
billion.

IMF Bentham CEO Andrew Saker points out that settlements are the
predominant form of resolution of most multi-party actions in
Australia, not just securities class actions.

Saker has a unique perspective given IMF's involvement in many of
the actions over the past 16 years, and to him, the rate of
settlements has something to do with claim selection and merits.

"I agree there must be a correlation to commercial pragmatism, but
also underpinned by the strength of the underlying claim," he
says.

The growth in sophistication and size of funders -- computing
models carefully watch for jumps in share price around an
announcement, for example -- has led to calls to regulate the
industry, requiring adequate capital and licences.

Growth industry for lawyers

Lawyers can only see that growth continuing, particularly since
the Federal Court rubber-stamped what is known as a "common fund
order" in October -- the ability to carve commissions and costs
from the slice of every group member to a class action claim, not
just those signed up to an agreement with funders and lawyers.
Court support for market-based causation -- which in essence means
shareholders do not have to prove they relied on a misleading
statement or omission by a company, it is enough that the price
moved as a result -- also point to a possible increase in
temptation.

Monash University professor Vince Morabito says he does not think
the feared rush to the courts following the Federal Court's common
funds approval will happen, largely because litigation funders
still operate business models requiring a high chance of winning
before they will back a case. Limitations include the unlikelihood
of Australia following the path of the US and allowing lawyers to
charge contingency fees, and an increasing willingness among
courts to challenge the settlement fee cut, not just acting as a
mere rubber stamp.

"Commercial litigation funders are going to be very careful which
class actions they invest in, they're going to keep a check on
what costs are run up by the lawyers running it, [and] I've got
enough confidence in our judges to be able to make sure their
payments are not excessive," Morabito says.

He does not see the trend of shareholders bringing actions
against, in effect, themselves, as irrational.

"An increasing number of institutional investors are becoming
involved in shareholder class actions. Thus they obviously do not
feel that shareholder class actions produce unsatisfactory or
irrational outcomes."

Head of class actions at leading plaintiff law firm Maurice
Blackburn, Andrew Watson, agrees.

"Anyone running that line [about shareholders suing themselves] is
giving the green light to unchecked corporate wrongdoing, while
conveniently ignoring that insurance responds to many claims and
the composition of the holding group also changes," he says.

Deep pockets may push back

Despite the persistent trend of settlements and the SurfStitch
example, Morabito reckons it is "inevitable" that a company will
fight a claim all the way to judgment -- and possibly up to the
High Court.

Morabito has noticed an anecdotal shift in the trend, towards
longer times to reach settlement.

"They're fighting harder than they have in the past. They're not
just saying 'let's just make it go away'," he says.

As happened in the bank fees class action -- when ANZ fought a
consumer protection claim all the way to the High Court,
ultimately winning -- Morabito can see a "deep pocket defendant"
doing the same in a securities action.

"I think we will get to a point where a law firm will say to a
client, 'let's make the High Court decide'."

A win for defendants could make the industry pause. Morabito also
queries whether there will be a dip in activity when the lingering
effects of the global financial crisis die down.

Watson says that despite the growth in shareholder actions they
are still "not by any stretch" the majority.

... and justice for all

And he takes issue with a "theme that sometimes runs through that
the shareholder class actions have somehow distorted the laudable
aims of the system".

Those laudable aims boil down to access to justice, the efficient
resolution of disputes, and private enforcement.

"When the bill for a class action regime was introduced, one thing
the government emphasised was that it would be available for
shareholders of companies engaged in misconduct," he says.

"I've never understood the argument that suggested that somehow or
other we'd be better off if we turned a blind eye to corporate
misconduct that substantially impacts shareholders. In what other
area would we see the best policy outcome is to turn a blind eye
to a breach of the law?"

Every class action needs its lead plaintiffs; for SurfStitch, they
are elderly Sydneysiders Warwick and Leonee Cook, who bought
35,000 shares at various points between November 2015 and May
2016. The action is open to any who bought between August 2015 and
June 2016.

During the start of that period, the company trumpeted sales
spikes and "strong double-digit revenue to continue", including at
its November AGM.

By May 2016, less than two months after its co-founder and CEO
Justin Cameron resigned, the company announced "challenging"
trading conditions that required spending more on advertising, a
reorganisation of management and ultimately a profit downgrade to
$2 to $3 million.

On June 9, it went further: company losses could reach $18.3
million. Ultimately, it booked $18.8 million in losses for the
2016 financial year, a near four-time drop on the previous year.
Critical to the change in fortune was the demise of a multi-
million dollar branding rights and licensing agreement with
surfcam and conditions forecaster Coastalwatch fell over, which
has triggered its own lawsuit involving Coastalwatch and related
company Crown Financial.

Crown Financial managing director Kim Sundell on june 8 questioned
the SurfStitch board over its management of the class action
claims and restructuring efforts, in an open letter.

Since listing in December 2014, SurfStitch had engaged in an
ambitious acquisition run -- online platform Stab, forecasting
network Magicseaweed, video production company Garage
Entertainment and manufacturer Surf Hardware International among
early buys.

The SurfStitch website was offering $20 off first orders and 30
per cent off winter gear -- pants, jumpers and knits. This week
different items get the discount.

If funders, plaintiff and defendant lawyers can settle on nothing
else -- the need for regulation of funders, the role of the
courts, the merits of actions or the balance struck between access
to justice and commercial objectives -- they might at least be
able to agree to keep warm while they try. [GN]

TAYLOR, MI: Judge Dismisses Class Action Related to Overtaxing
--------------------------------------------------------------
Dave Herndon, writing for The News Herald, reports that a class-
action lawsuit filed against the City of Taylor was tossed out of
court recently as the judge apparently agreed with the city's
attorneys that the suit was "frivolous."

The lawsuit, filed in October, by the Royal Oak-based law firm
Kickham Hanley PLLC, contended that the city had been overtaxing
residents to build an unneeded balance in the water and sewer
fund.

"We will continue to defend the interests of our residents against
unwarranted actions like these," Mayor Rick Sollars said after
learning of the dismissal. "Our residents pay water rates to be
used for the purposes of maintaining and improving our water
system. That's exactly how we use our funds. They are not
collected to be then handed away to line someone's pockets as the
result of an unwarranted lawsuit."

Taylor was just one of many cities that were targeted by similar
suits. Dearborn, Ferndale, Royal Oak, Birmingham, Bloomfield
Township and Westland are some of the other communities that have
had suits filed against them by the firm.

The lawsuit claimed that Taylor's rates are higher than necessary
to finance the actual costs of providing water and sewage disposal
services; that the City has unlawfully included in its rates an
additional charge that is used not to cover actual expenses on
providing water and sewer services, but rather to fund the City's
general governmental obligations; and that the City includes in
its rates an amount to cover the costs the City incurs for the
public fire protection services provided by the water supply
system.

In October when the suit was filed Sollars said Taylor has a very
comprehensive capital improvement plan in place that improves
services to residents throughout the community. Every five years,
Taylor updates a Capital Improvement Plan. The City's most recent
plan in November 2015 identified over $12M of necessary
improvements required to the system. Taylor prepares for such
improvements each year to avoid large assessments to residents.

The Parties to the class action entered into the Stipulation of
