Retirement System (CalPERS), Board of Administration of California

standards, including below the customary and reasonable. [BN]

Heinz availed of non-emergency medical services in San Francisco
on a regular basis from at least 2006 to 2015. Anthem only paid
80% of the contract rate and Heinz was billed for the remaining
20%.

CAREGIVERS FOR INDEPENDENCE: Court Tosses Claims in "Lee" Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Michael R. Barrett entered an opinion and order in the
lawsuit captioned BOBBI LEE, individually and on behalf of all
others similarly situated v. CAREGIVERS FOR INDEPENDENCE, LLC, et
al., Case No. 1:16-cv-00946-MRB (S.D. Ohio):

   -- granting the Plaintiff's motions for leave to file
      supplemental authority;

   -- denying the Plaintiff's motion to conditionally certify a
      Fair Labor Standards Act collective action, approve notice
      and expedited consideration;

   -- granting the Defendants' Motion for Judgment on the
      Pleadings; and

   -- dismissing with prejudice the Plaintiff's claims.

Plaintiff Bobbi Lee filed a complaint on behalf of herself and
others similarly situated against the Defendants seeking unpaid
overtime wages under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Ohio
Minimum Fair Wage Standards and the Ohio Prompt Pay Act.

The Ohio Minimum Fair Wage Standards Act is to be construed in
accordance with the FLSA, the Court says, citing Douglas v. Argo-
Tech Corp., 113 F.3d 67, 69 n.2 (6th Cir. 1997); Ohio Rev. Code
Section 4111.03(A).  Additionally, Judge Barrett opines, the
Plaintiff's claim based upon the Ohio Prompt Pay Act depends
entirely on the resolution of Plaintiff's claims for unpaid
overtime.  Therefore, dismissal of Plaintiff's FLSA claim requires
dismissal of her parallel state law claims as well.

CELGENE CORP: Engineers Fund Hits Thalomid/Lenalidomide Monopoly
----------------------------------------------------------------
International Union of Operating Engineers Stationary Engineers
Local 39 Health and Welfare Trust Fund, The Detectives' Endowment
Association, Inc. and David Mitchell, individually and on behalf
of all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. Celgene
Corporation, Defendant, Case No. 2:17-cv-04319 (D.N.J., June 14,
2017), seeks equitable relief in the nature of disgorgement,
restitution and the creation of a constructive trust to remedy
Defendant's unjust enrichment; damages; treble, multiple, punitive
and/or other damages including interest; and reasonable attorneys'
fees as provided by various state anti-monopoly laws.

Celgene sells thalidomide and under the brand-name thalomid and
lenalidomide respectively. Both drugs have dangerous side effects,
namely, life-threatening birth defects when ingested by pregnant
women. Celgene used FDA safety requirements that were designed to
ensure safe access to these dangerous drugs as a pretext to delay
and indefinitely postpone the availability of cost-saving generic
alternatives to these drugs and fraudulently obtaining patents on
the procedures to ensure safe use of thalomid and revlimid in
order to block generic entrants from coming to market, says the
complaint. [BN]

CLIENT SERVICES: Class Certification Sought in "Bruchhauser" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Susan Bruchhauser and Charles Livermore move the Court to certify
the class described in the complaint of the lawsuit captioned
SUSAN BRUCHHAUSER and CHARLES LIVERMORE, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. CLIENT SERVICES, INC.,
Case No. 2:17-cv-00860-WED (E.D. Wisc.), and further ask that the
Court both stay the motion for class certification and to grant
the Plaintiffs (and the Defendant) 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 Plaintiffs assert, 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 Plaintiffs are obligated to move for class certification to
protect the interests of the putative class, they contend.  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 Plaintiffs contend.

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

COLLECTO INC: Annunziato Seeks Final Approval of Class Settlement
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiffs in the lawsuit styled David Annunziato and Eli
Kalkstein, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly
situated v. Collecto, Inc., Case No. 2:12-cv-03609-ADS-AKT
(E.D.N.Y.), moves for final approval of the parties' class action
settlement, attorney fees, and representative fees.

On January 10, 2017, the Settlement received preliminary approval
and the Court directed that notice of be sent to 590 class
members. No class member has objected, and no class member has
"opted out."  A total of 58 notices were returned as
undeliverable. The parties have agreed that undistributed funds
will be given as a cy pres award to the Suffolk County Bar
Association Pro Bono Foundation.

The case arose from the Defendant's alleged conduct that violated
the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

In the Settlement, the Defendant agreed to pay $500 to each class
member as well as full actual damages to class members, who paid
the allegedly illegal "collection costs."  The Plaintiff seeks an
agreed-upon recovery of $240,000 for attorney fees and costs.  The
parties have also agreed to an award of $5,000 to each of the two
class representatives.

CONCHETTA INC: Third Circuit Appeal Filed in "Colon" Class Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff Julieann Colon filed an appeal from a court ruling in
the lawsuit entitled Julieann Colon v. Conchetta Inc., et al.,
Case No. 2-17-cv-00959, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern
District of Pennsylvania.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter on
June 22, 2017, Judge Robert F. Kelly, Sr., granted the Defendants'
motion to compel arbitration and dismiss the proceedings, and to
stay discovery pending determination of the motion.

On March 2, 2017, Ms. Colon filed the present class action
alleging federal and Pennsylvania state wage violations.
Specifically, Ms. 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, Ms. Colon claims that the Defendants have,
inter alia, violated the federal Fair Labor Standards Act 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.

The appellate case is captioned as Julieann Colon v. Conchetta
Inc., et al., Case No. 17-2431, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the Third Circuit.[BN]

FLEETCOR TECH: Sunrise City Plan Sues Over Share Price Drop
-----------------------------------------------------------
City of Sunrise General Employees' Retirement Plan, on behalf of
itself and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. Fleetcor
Technologies, Inc., Ronald F. Clarke, and Eric R. Dey, Defendants,
Case No. 1:17-cv-02207 (N.D. Ga., June 14, 2017), seeks
compensatory damages, including interest, reasonable costs and
expenses incurred in this action, including attorneys' fees and
expert fees and such equitable/injunctive or other further relief
for violation of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

FleetCor is a fuel-card company that offers its products and
services to small businesses as well as government and corporate
clients. FleetCor is accused of fraudulent overcharging of its
customers, dissemination of misleading marketing materials,
predatory sales practices. In addition, FleetCor's fees were not
clearly disclosed in its contracts contrary to its representations
to investors and customers. On December 19, 2016, Chevron,
FleetCor's largest U.S. partner, announced that it terminated its
contract. On this news, the price of FleetCor stock declined from
$148.04 per share on December 16, 2016 to $142.96 per share on
December 19, 2016, or approximately 3%.

City of Sunrise General Employees' Retirement Plan is a public
pension fund that provides retirement benefits to public workers
(other than police officers and firefighters) within the city of
Sunrise, Florida. They invested in FleetCor securities. [BN]

FMA ALLIANCE: Livermore Moves Court for Certification of Class
--------------------------------------------------------------
Charles Livermore moves the Court to certify the class described
in the complaint of the lawsuit entitled CHARLES LIVERMORE,
Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. FMA
ALLIANCE LTD., Case No. 2:17-cv-00861-WED (E.D. Wisc.), and
further asks that the Court both stay the motion for class
certification and to grant the Plaintiff (and the Defendant)
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.

GULFPORT ENERGY: Slone Moves to Certify Class of Consultants
------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiffs in the lawsuit entitled TIMOTHY SLONE and BOBBY
WALDON, Each Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated v. GULFPORT ENERGY CORP., Case No. 5:16-cv-01296-HE (W.D.
Okla.), moves for conditional certification.

Gulfport misclassified its safety consultants and its completions
consultants as independent contractors in order to avoid paying
them overtime wages required under federal law, the Plaintiffs
allege.  They contend that Gulfport maintained a uniform pay
practice of paying these consultants a day rate without any
overtime compensation.  Because the relationship between the
safety and completions consultants with Gulfport rise to that of
an employee/employer relationship, Gulfport's day rate independent
contractor classification flagrantly violates the
Fair Labor Standards Act, the Plaintiffs assert.

The Plaintiffs seek to allow their coworkers -- other safety
consultants and completions consultants treated as day rate
independent contractors by Gulfport, to receive notice of this
collective action, and stop the statute of limitations from
running on their valuable back wage claims.  The Plaintiffs also
ask the Court to approve their proposed Notice & Consent Form and
opt-in procedures.

HOME DEPOT: "Kearney" Action Seek Unpaid Overtime Wages
-------------------------------------------------------
Gary Kearney, on behalf of himself and the other members of the
collective, Plaintiff v. Home Depot USA, Inc., Kevin P. Fucich LLC
(d/b/a Falcon Security) and Point 2 Point Global Security, Inc.,

KRIEGER BEARD: Perry Moves for Certification of Technicians Class
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Morgan Perry, one of the Plaintiffs in the lawsuit captioned
MORGAN PERRY, et al., for himself and all others similarly
situated v. KRIEGER BEARD SERVICES LLC, et al., Case No. 3:17-cv-
00161-TMR (S.D. Ohio), asks the Court to conditionally certify the
proposed FLSA class of:

     all current and former Technicians employed by Krieger Beard
     on, and after, May 8, 2014, who worked overtime hours but
     were not paid overtime wages during all or part of their
     employment and/or who were not paid minimum wage during all
     or part of their employment.

Mr. Perry filed the action on behalf of himself and other
similarly situated current and former employees pursuant to the
Fair Labor Standards Act.  He alleges that the Defendants failed
to pay him and a class of similarly situated Technicians overtime
wages and/or minimum wages for years.  Instead, Krieger Beard paid
him and the other Technicians strictly on a piece-rate amount,
regardless of the hours they worked, falling below the minimum
wage at times, he contends.

Mr. Perry also asks the Court to require the Defendants to
identify potential opt-in plaintiffs and to implement a procedure
whereby Court-approved Notice of Plaintiff's FLSA claim can be
promptly sent to all potential opt-in plaintiffs (and posted in
workplaces).

MONSANTO CO: Bruce Farms Sues Over Deceptive Trace Practices
------------------------------------------------------------
Bruce Farms Partnership, Ronnie Bruce, Karen Bruce, Caleb Bruce,
Curtis Nash, Dena Nash, Curtis & Dena Nash JV, LA Farms,
Incorporated, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly
situated v. Monsanto Company, BASF SE, BASF Corporation and John
Doe Companies A-Z, Defendants, Case No. 3:17-cv-00154 (E.D. Ark.,
June 14, 2017), seeks compensatory and punitive damages, costs,
expert fees, disbursements and attorneys' fees incurred in
prosecuting this action, disgorgement of profits, pre-judgment and
post-judgment interest at the maximum rate and such other relief
resulting from unjust enrichment, negligence, fraud, fraudulent
concealment, breach of implied warranty of merchantability and for
violation of the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

The Monsanto Company developed and released genetically modified
soybeans designed to combat problematic weeds that have become
resistant to certain herbicides over time where its most popular
herbicide are Roundup and Dicamba. Monsanto partnered with BASF, a
German chemical company, a joint licensing agreement to accelerate
the development of dicamba-based weed control products. Monsanto
insists that dicamba-resistant seeds and the dicamba-based
herbicides should be used in tandem. However, Monsanto sold the
seeds before approval by the Environmental Protection Agency of
its partner herbicide. The farmers can no longer use the old
herbicide because of volatility issues. [BN]

REXALL SUNDOWN: Faces "Seegert" Suit Over "Osteo Bi-Flex" Adverts

SANDRA SEEGERT, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. REXALL SUNDOWN, INC.,
Defendant, Case No. 3:17-cv-01243-JAH-JMA (S.D. Cal., June 19,
2017), is a consumer protection class action arising out of
Defendant's false and misleading advertising of its glucosamine
products.

Defendant markets, sells and distributes a line of joint health
dietary supplements under the "Osteo Bi-Flex" brand name, and
Defendant represents that these products are beneficial to the
joints of the consumers who use them.

According to the suit, Defendant's Osteo Bi-Flex products,
however, are incapable of supporting or benefiting the health of
human joints because the main ingredients in each of Defendant's
Osteo Bi-Flex products at issue, either alone or in combination
with other ingredients, cannot support or benefit joint
health.[BN]

RSI ENTERPRISES: Certification of Class Sought in "Machnik" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Machnik moves the Court to certify the class described in
the complaint of the lawsuit titled MICHAEL MACHNIK, Individually
and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. RSI ENTERPRISES,
INC., Case No. 2:17-cv-00864-LA (E.D. Wisc.), and further asks
that the Court both stay the motion for class certification and to
grant the Plaintiff (and the Defendant) 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 tells the Court, 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
asserts.  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.

SANTA MONICA, CA: Ninth Circuit Appeal Filed in "Rosenblatt" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff Arlene Rosenblatt filed an appeal from a court ruling in
the lawsuit styled Arlene Rosenblatt v. City of Santa Monica, et
al., Case No. 2:16-cv-04481-ODW-AGR, in the U.S. District Court
for the Central District of California, Los Angeles.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter on June 12,
2017, a Federal District Court judge dismissed an elderly woman's
lawsuit against Santa Monica's restrictive AirBnb ordinance on May
24, further delaying the case that objects to the law under the
California Coastal Act.

Santa Monica's ordinance prohibits listing a home as a vacation
rental unless the homeowner is present during the guests' stay.
Arlene Rosenblatt and her husband contend they should be able to
list their home on a Web site like Airbnb while they are traveling
out of town to supplement their social security checks.

The appellate case is captioned as Arlene Rosenblatt v. City of
Santa Monica, et al., Case No. 17-55879, in the United States
Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

The briefing schedule in the Appellate Case is set as follows:

   -- Appellant Arlene Rosenblatt's opening brief is due on
      November 28, 2017;

   -- Appellees City of Santa Monica and The City Council of the
      City of Santa Monica's answering brief is due on
      December 28, 2017; and

   -- Appellant's optional reply brief is due 21 days after
      service of the answering brief.[BN]

SCHLUMBERGER LTD: Class of Reamer Hands Certified in Venable Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Dee D. Drell granted in part and denied in part the
Defendant's motion for conditional certification of a plaintiff
class in the lawsuit styled JACK VENTON VENABLE, JR. and WILLIAM
AGUIRRE, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated v. SCHLUMBERGER LIMITED (SCHLUMBERGER N.V.) f/k/a SMITH
INTERNATIONAL, INC., Case No. 6:16-cv-00241-DDD-PJH (W.D. La.).

The Motion is granted to the extent that the action is
conditionally certified as a collective action pursuant to 29
U.S.C. Section 216(b) with the plaintiff class defined as "Reamer
Hands working for Smith International Inc. in Louisiana, Texas, or
the Gulf of Mexico over the past three years who were paid a
salary and job bonus," and denied in all other respects, according
to the Judgment.

The matter was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Patrick
J. Hanna for report and recommendation.  After an independent
review of the record, and noting the absence of any objections,
the Court concludes that the Magistrate Judge's report and
recommendation is correct and adopts the findings and conclusions
therein as its own.

The Defendant has 14 days from the date of the order to provide
the Plaintiffs with the names of all potential members of the
class in an acceptable electronic format, along with their current
or last known mailing addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone
numbers, and dates of employment.  The parties will meet, confer,
and thereafter submit to the Court a joint proposed notice and
consent form no later than 21 days after the date of the order.
If the parties are unable to agree on the content of the proposed
notice and consent forms, the parties shall contact Magistrate
Judge Hanna for the purpose of setting up a telephone status
conference.

Judge Drell also ordered that potential class members will be
permitted to opt in to this collective action if: (1) they have
mailed, faxed, or e-mailed their consent form to counsel for the
class within sixty days after the notice and consent forms are
mailed or e-mailed; or (2) they show good cause for any delay.

SOURCE RECEIVABLES: Certification of Class Sought in "Al" Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
Adel Al moves the Court to certify the class described in the
complaint of the lawsuit titled ADEL AL, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. SOURCE RECEIVABLES
MANAGEMENT, LLC, Case No. 2:17-cv-00863-DEJ (E.D. Wisc.), and
further asks that the Court both stay the motion for class
certification and to grant the Plaintiff (and the Defendant)
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.

SPRINT NEXTEL: Seeks 10th Cir. Review of Ruling in "Sibley" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Defendants Sprint Nextel Corporation and Sprint/United Management
Company filed an appeal from a court ruling in the lawsuit styled
Sibley, et al. v. Sprint Nextel Corporation, et al., Case No.
2:08-CV-02063-KHV-JPO, in the U.S. District Court for the District
of Kansas - Kansas City.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the lawsuit
was filed on February 7, 2008, by several retail store workers,
who say they were shorted "hundreds to thousands of dollars" in
commissions.

Roxie Sibley, Jeanne Noel, Ernesto Bennett and Jamie Williams are
among former and current Sprint workers who say problems with a
company computer system failed to recognize all of the commissions
earned on sales of phones, accessories and calling plans.  In all,
according to estimates by lawyers representing the workers,
several thousand salesclerks lost commissions topping $5 million.

The appellate case is captioned as Sprint Nextel, et al. v.
Sibley, et al., Case No. 17-602, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

The briefing schedule in the Appellate Case stated that Response
was due July 6, 2017, for Roxie Sibley, Jeanne Noel, Ernesto
Bennett, Jamie Williams, Greg St. Julien, Tracie Hernandez, John
Jasinski, Jay Richie and Teisha King.[BN]

SUNDANCE INC: Court Certifies Class of Workers in "Flanagan" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. George Caram Steeh entered a stipulated order regarding
conditional certification and judicial notice and denying the
Plaintiffs' motion for conditional class certification as moot in
the lawsuit entitled JOLENE FLANAGAN, TRAVIS PIETRYKOWSKI,
MICHELLE WILKINS, and DENISE WOOD v. SUNDANCE, INC., Case No.
2:16-cv-13598-GCS-RSW (E.D. Mich.).

Judge Steeh granted in part Conditional Certification and Judicial
Notice pursuant to the Parties' agreement and limited to the
Defendant's hourly employees that were employed at any of
Defendant's Taco Bell locations within the State of Michigan.

The putative class is defined as:

     All Team Members, Shift Leads or other hourly employees that
     were employed with Defendant as an hourly employee at any of
     its Taco Bell locations within the State of Michigan at any
     time in the past three years from the date of this Order.

Within 30 days of the date of this Order, the Court directs the
Defendant to provide the Plaintiffs a list and information of all
putative class members.  The Plaintiffs may thereafter send a
Notice of Pendency of FLSA Lawsuit and Consent to Join to all
persons identified by the Defendant within 10 days.

The parties also agree that the Plaintiffs are not to seek class
certification regarding the Defendant's employees that held
salaried positions with the Defendant and the Plaintiffs withdraw
any class wide claims as to the Defendant's salaried employees.

SYNCHRONOSS TECH: Firemen's Pension Fund Alleges Securities Fraud
-----------------------------------------------------------------
City of Atlanta Firefighters' Pension Fund, individually and on

Technologies, Inc., Stephen G. Waldis, Ronald W. Hovsepian, Karen
L. Rosenberger and John Frederick, Defendants, Case No. 3:17-cv-
04326, (D. N.J., June 14, 2017), seeks interest, prejudgment and
post-judgment interest, reasonable attorneys' and experts' as well
as witness fees and other costs and such other relief under the
Securities and Exchange Act.

Plaintiff, an investor in Synchronoss stocks, claims that
Defendants, senior executives of Synchronoss, artificially
inflated Synchronoss stock prices by divesting a substantial
component of its business to an undisclosed related party owned
and managed by friends and family of the Company's Executive
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Defendant Stephen G. Waldis
and consistently misrepresented the financial strength of its
cloud computing segment, an issue that led the Company to acquire
an industry peer with lagging financials in an attempt to bolster
revenue growth.

Synchronoss provides cloud solutions and software-based activation
for mobile carriers, enterprises, retailers, and original
equipment manufacturers worldwide. Its solutions include
activation and provisioning software for devices and services,
cloud-based sync, backup, storage and content engagement
capabilities, broadband connectivity solutions, analytics,

VWR CORP: Shortchanged on Merger Deal, "Berg" Suit Says
-------------------------------------------------------
Robert Berg, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. VWR Corporation, Harry M. Jansen Kraemer,
Jr., Nicolas W. Alexos, Robert L. Barchi, Edward A. Blechschmidt,
Manuel A.H. Brocke-Benz, Robert P. Qecresce, Pamela Forbes-
Lieberman, Timothy P. Sullivan, Robert J. Zollars, Avantor, Inc.,
Vail Acquisition Corp. and New Mountain Capital L.L.C.,
Defendants, Case No. 17-2676 (E.D. Pa., June 13, 2017), seeks to
preliminarily and permanently enjoin defendants from proceeding
with, consummating or closing the planned acquisition of all of
the outstanding shares of VWR common stock by Avantor.  The suit
also seeks rescissory damages in the event Defendants consummate
the merger, costs of this action, including reasonable allowance
for Plaintiff's attorneys' and experts' fees and such other and
further relief under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

VWR is a global independent provider of product and service
solutions to laboratory and production customers in the
pharmaceutical, biotechnology, industrial, education, government,
and healthcare industries. Its differentiated services provide
innovative, flexible and customized solutions from scientific
research services to custom-manufactured chemical blends.

Plaintiffs claim that the merger agreement provides for a
"termination fee" of up to $170 million, payable by the Company to
Avantor if the individual Defendants cause the Company to
terminate the deal. This prevents other bidders from making
successful competing offers. To add, the consideration of $33.25
per share in cash is inadequate considering VWR's financial
performance as of 3rd quarter 2017, says the complaint. [BN]
