AETNA INC: Provides Emergency Relief to Members Affected by Breach
------------------------------------------------------------------
Business Insider reported that Aetna said it is now offering
emergency relief for individuals harmed by Aetna's mailing in July
2017 that disclosed information about HIV/AIDS medication through
a large transparent window on the envelope.

The emergency relief program offers cash reimbursement to
individuals who have incurred financial hardship as a result of
the breach, for example, because they have been forced to move, or
forced to incur other out-of-pocket expenses as a result of others
learning that they are taking HIV/AIDS medication. In addition,
the emergency relief program offers up to three free counseling
sessions to individuals and their family members who request
counseling as a result of the breach.

The emergency relief program was developed by Aetna with input
from attorneys at the AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania, the Legal
Action Center, and the Philadelphia law firm Berger & Montague,
P.C., who together are prosecuting a class action case related to
the privacy breach on behalf of approximately 12,000 affected
individuals in the United States. That lawsuit, captioned Beckett
v. Aetna, Inc., et al., No. 2:17-cv-03864-JS (E.D. Pa.), was filed
on August 28, 2017 in the U.S District Court for the Eastern
District of Pennsylvania.

The emergency relief program grew out of the concern that the
privacy breach may result in immediate harm to certain individuals
that could not wait until the end of the lawsuit. "We view this
emergency relief program simply as a way to reach Aetna members
who, as a result of the breach, may need immediate crisis
counseling or financial relief," said Ronda B. Goldfein, an
attorney and Executive Director of the AIDS Law Project of
Pennsylvania. "The establishment of this program is the beginning
and not the end of the case we are prosecuting. The program does
not involve any legal releases of claims by participants. It is
simply a way to address emergency needs of people harmed by the
breach."

Because of the sensitive nature of the program and the fact that
affected individuals may not want to deal with Aetna directly, the
AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania and the Legal Action Center have
agreed to assist people in submitting requests for emergency
relief. The AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania and the Legal Action
Center are nonprofit law firms that represent persons living with
HIV/AIDS.

"Since the breach occurred in July 2017, we have heard from
hundreds of people who have been harmed," Goldfein added. "We
encourage anyone who received and would like to discuss Aetna's
mailing to contact us, and we can advise them regarding their
legal claims."

"We will continue to vigorously prosecute the class action lawsuit
to ensure that the thousands of individuals harmed by this privacy
breach receive justice," said Sally Friedman, Legal Director of
the Legal Action Center. "Aetna's mailing caused serious harm and
forever altered class members' relationships with family, friends,
and neighbors."

New York residents who require emergency relief should contact the
Legal Action Center at 212-243-1313 or  -- lacinfo@lac.org --. All
other affected individuals in the United States should contact the
AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania at 215-587-9377 or  --
aetnaclass@aidslawpa.org  Importantly, participants who request
and accept the immediate relief will not release any legal claims
by doing so.

Founded in 1988, the AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania
(www.aidslawpa.org) is the nation's only independent nonprofit
public-interest law firm providing free legal services to people
living with HIV and AIDS and those affected by the epidemic.

Established in 1973, the Legal Action Center (www.lac.org) is the
nation's only nonprofit law and policy organization whose sole
mission is to fight discrimination against people with histories
of addiction, HIV/AIDS, or criminal records, and to advocate for
sound public policies.

Berger & Montague, P.C. (www.bergermontague.com) is a national
plaintiffs' law firm headquartered in Philadelphia with additional
offices in Minneapolis and Washington, D.C. The firm has played
lead roles in major cases for over 47 years, resulting in
recoveries of over $30 billion for its clients and the classes
they have represented. Attorneys Shanon Carson, E. Michelle Drake,
Sarah R. Schalman-Bergen, and John Albanese are prosecuting the
Aetna privacy breach class action case. [GN]

DEUTSCHE BANK: Agrees to $190MM Prelim Settlement in Exchange Suit
------------------------------------------------------------------
B. Colby Hamilton, writing for New York Law Journal, reports that
Deutsche Bank has agreed to a preliminary settlement of $190
million in a class action suit over foreign exchange rate price-
fixing allegations against some of the world's biggest financial
institutions.

According to Hausfeld, which has handled the suit In re Foreign
Exchange Benchmark Rates Antitrust Litigation, 13-cv-07789, on
behalf of plaintiffs, if the settlement is approved by U.S.
District Judge Lorna G. Schofield of the Southern District of New
York, Deutsche Bank's settlement would bring the total in the suit
to over $2.3 billion.

"After hard-fought negotiations, this settlement will return a
substantial sum to the already historic recoveries on behalf of
U.S. investors," Hausfeld chairman Michael D. Hausfeld said in a
statement. "Deutsche Bank's cooperation will help in permitting
the class to seek recovery from the final institution in the case
as the case proceeds toward trial."

A spokesman for Deutsche Bank declined to comment.

Plaintiffs, led by Haverhill Retirement Systems, first brought the
class action suit in 2013. As the third consolidated complaint
notes, defendants Barclays Bank, Citicorp, JPMorgan Chase and RBS
have pleaded guilty to conspiring to violate antitrust laws by
fixing prices, manipulating benchmark rates, and coordinating to
force clients to make certain orders in the $5 trillion daily
foreign currency market.

Plaintiffs allege violations of the U.S. Sherman Antitrust Act as
well as violations of the Commodity Exchange Act. According to
their complaint, traders at the defendant banks referred to
themselves as "The Cartel," "The Bandits' Club," and "The Mafia"
in online communications. Their alleged conspiracy affected the
trading on dozens of currency pairs, including seven pairs with
the highest market volume, the plaintiffs contend.

The Deutsche Bank settlement would represent the 15th in the suit
so far, leaving Credit Suisse as the last defendant without an
agreement. A Credit Suisse spokeswoman declined to comment. [GN]

DRAFTKINGS: Ex-NIU Athlete's Lawsuit Tossed
-------------------------------------------
The News Tribune reports that a federal judge has tossed a lawsuit
brought by former Northern Illinois University running back Akeem
Daniels against two daily fantasy sports sites that he accused of
unlawfully using his name to generate millions of dollars in
revenue.

Judge Tanya Pratt in the U.S. District Court for Southern Indiana
threw out the suit in a September 29 ruling on a motion to
dismiss. She cited, among other things, that their references fell
under an exception that allows such uses of names if they are
considered newsworthy.

Daniels sued Boston-based DraftKings and New York-based FanDuel

GLOBAL TEL*LINK: Prison Callers Denied Class Cert. in Suit
----------------------------------------------------------
Nicole Narea, writing for Law360, reports that an Arkansas federal
court on September 28 declined to certify a class of prisoners and
their families in price-gouging litigation against Global Tel*Link
Corporation at thousands of prisons, saying their unjust
enrichment claims require highly specific factual analysis.

District Judge Timothy Brooks determined that the issues of the
proposed class do not supersede the claims of each of its members,
who demand "individualized inquiry," failing a key requirement for
class action suits.

"There simply is no path forward under the common law of unjust
enrichment that avoids the necessity of overwhelmingly claimant-
specific factual analysis," the decision states. "Therefore, the
court cannot certify these classes."

The court also denied GTL's motion to compel arbitration in the
case, reasoning that it had waived its right to do so based on a
three-prong test evaluating whether a party was aware of its right
to arbitration, behaved in a way that indicated it would not
pursue arbitration and consequently prejudiced the other party.

First filed in June 2015, the suit claims that inmates must pay
whatever rates GTL charges for calls outside prison, and that a
single 15-minute phone call can cost more than an entire month's
basic phone service outside a prison facility. It also argues
"hundreds of millions of dollars" have been provided to
contracting prison entities in the form of kickbacks.

The suit comes from Jacqueline Jacobs, whose relative was an
inmate in Arkansas, and Shondra Caldwell, whose relative is
incarcerated in California, among nine other representative
plaintiffs. They sought to represent all GTL users in all states,
except New Jersey, who made or received prisoner calls after Feb.
7, 2000.

GTL has faced litigation on the same issue in other parts of the
U.S. and has pushed back, in court and out, on Federal
Communications Commission efforts to cap prison call rates.

In deciding to deny class certification, the court analyzed four
proposed class types for their numerosity, commonality, typicality
and whether the class representatives fairly and adequately spoke
for the class as a whole.

The court found that the proposed classes contain at least
thousands of members and that the representatives described claims
that were pertinent to the whole class -- namely, that GTL
violated consumer protection laws and the common law of unjust
enrichment across multiple states by setting the prices for
intrastate phone calls injuriously high.

However, the court found that the proposed classes failed to meet
the predominance requirement for certification, which mandates
that "the issues in the class action that are subject to
generalized proof, and thus applicable to the class as a whole,
predominate over those issues that are subject only to
individualized proof," according to federal statute.

In doing so, the court relied on GTL's arguments under the
voluntary payment doctrine, which states that voluntary payments
cannot be recovered, except under certain narrow circumstances.
GTL had asserted that some class members were not obligated to pay
recoupments of site commissions to GTL and that it has not "harmed
anyone by simply offering a service" that inmates and their
families did not have to use, according to the decision.

The court said that GTL would be able to assert that defense
against every class member, who would then have to offer their own
highly individualized counter-arguments.

"The court's point is simply that GTL's voluntary payment defense
can be asserted in good faith against every member of the proposed
unjust enrichment classes, and that it cannot be resolved without
an individualized inquiry every time -- not only into each
member's personal circumstances, but even into the particular
circumstances surrounding each call," the decision states.

Turning to GTL's motion to compel arbitration, the decision points
out that GTL obtained arbitration agreements from three plaintiffs
before they filed suit, indicating that it understood its right to
pursue arbitration. It also chose not to pursue arbitration for a
year and a half into the litigation and had sought to dismiss two
of the plaintiffs from the case, suggesting that it had not
intended to pursue arbitration at all, the court reasoned.

And one of the plaintiffs expended significant resources in
pursuing class certification, which would not have been at issue
in arbitration -- "a textbook example of prejudice," according to
the decision.

Counsel for the parties did not immediately respond to requests
for comment on September 29.

The proposed class is represented by Amy C. Martin, Benjamin D.
Brown and Robert A. Braun of Cohen Milstein Sellers Toll PLLC,
Donna Siegel Moffaof, Edward W. Ciolko, Monique Myatt Galloway,
Peter A. Muhic and Amanda Trask of Kessler Topaz Meltzer Check

MENARD INC: Wood Dimensions Not Misleading, Judge Tells Class
-------------------------------------------------------------
Diana Novak Jones, writing for Law360, reports that an Illinois
federal judge hammered a proposed class action against hardware
chain Menard Inc. over allegations it shorted customers who bought
lumber, saying on September 29 that labels listing the wood pieces
as "4 x 4" were not misleading about how long they actually were.

U.S. District Judge Edmond E. Chang granted Menards' motion to
dismiss the suit, which claimed that the actual pieces of lumber
were shorter than advertised. The judge said the use of 4x4 -- the
trade name for the piece of wood -- was "literally true" because
it didn't include inch-mark symbols after each number.

The suit, which was brought on behalf of anyone who purchased
lumber from Menards, had claimed violations of the Illinois
Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act, breach of
warranty and unjust enrichment.

But Judge Chang said the use of the trade name is endorsed by The
National Institute of Standards and Technology, a federal agency
tasked with establishing manufacturing standards for industries,
with the understanding that the name 4x4 or 1x6 comes from the
length of the wood before it is surfaced and sold.

"Without a literally untrue statement, combined with the
government-recognized distinction between nominal sizes and actual
sizes, no reasonable consumer would think that the labels showed
the exact dimensions of the lumber," Judge Chang wrote.

The dismissal comes about six months after plaintiffs Michael
Fuchs and Vladislav Krasilnikov filed the suit. Fuchs said he
bought lumber at Menards labeled as "1 x 6 - 71 - 72""and "4 x
4 - 10'", but when he got home and measured it the wood was
actually .66" x 5.25" x 6' and 3.5" x 3.5" x 10', respectively.
Krasilnikov's 4 x 4 was actually 3.5" x 3.5" x 8'.

Fuchs' 1x6 was 43 percent less wood and his 4x4 was 23 percent
less wood than he believed he was buying, based on the label, he
said. Both he and Krasilnikov said they would not have purchased
the wood at the price they paid had they known about its true
length.

Their suit is not the only one in Illinois federal court over
lumber length. A similar suit lodged against The Home Depot Inc.
is awaiting a judge's ruling on the company's motion to dismiss.

In June, Home Depot asked Judge Chang to reassign its lumber suit
to his court as related to the Menards case, but the judge said
the labels used at the two stores had too many differences.

In dismissing the Menards suit on September  29, Judge Chang
compared it to another infamous class action in Illinois, this one
over the amount of liquid included in iced drinks sold at
Starbucks.

That plaintiff said Starbucks advertised its drinks in ounce
volumes, only to add ice that limited the actual amount of coffee
or tea in the cup. But the judge overseeing that suit dismissed it
in October 2016, saying the customer had to know that ice would be
included in the cup when they placed their order.

"Similarly here, the plaintiffs see labels that do not have
dimensional-size markings, based on a published distinction
recognized by the Institute, and the plaintiffs have direct and
complete access to the information needed to determine the height
and width of the lumber," Judge Chang said.

The plaintiffs already had one shot at reworking their complaint
and they didn't ask for third try, so Judge Chang dismissed the
suit with prejudice.

Counsel for the class did not respond to requests for comment on
September 29, and a spokesman for Menards declined to comment.

The proposed class is represented by Myles McGuire, Esq. Evan M.
Meyers, Esq. Eugene Y. Turin, Esq. and William P. Kingston, Esq. -

MDL 2729: Cooper Suit v. Samsung Electronics Moved to W.D. Okla.
----------------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Joy Cooper, on behalf of herself
and all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. Samsung
Electronics America Inc., the Defendant, Case No. 0:17-cv-61022,
was transferred from the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of Florida, to the U.S. District Court for the Western
District of Oklahoma (Oklahoma City). The Western District Court
Clerk assigned Case No. 5:17-cv-01080-D to the proceeding.

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. supplies consumer electronics
and digital products in the United States.

The Cooper case is being consolidated with MDL 2729 in re: Samsung
Top-Load Washing Machine Litigation. The MDL was created by Order
of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on
July 20, 2017. This transfer motion covers twenty-four putative
class-action Complaints filed by forty plaintiffs in twenty
separate federal districts concerning the same Samsung top-load
washing machine models. The Complaints propose overlapping, and in
many cases, identical, putative nationwide classes and/or multiple
state classes. At center stage of each of these Complaints are
allegations that these washers possess certain defects that
manifest themselves during the spin cycle and pose a risk of harm
to consumers and their property, as well as allegations concerning
the damages that consequentially flow therefrom. The Complaints
each claim that Defendants purportedly knew of the defects and
concealed them from consumers while they continued to sell the
machines. In its June 20, 2017 Order, the MDL Panel found that the
actions involved common questions of fact because the plaintiffs
had "uniformly allege[d] that Dollar General fail[ed] to
adequately warn that the products unsuitable for use," and the
plaintiffs "in all the actions allege[d] similar claims for breach
of warranties, unjust enrichment, and violation of various state
consumer protection acts." In addition, despite the presence of
common counsel, the Panel was persuaded by the fact that, "in each
of these actions, [the plaintiffs] would seek to obtain the same
documentary and testimonial evidence from defendants and third-
party witnesses," as well as expert discovery. Presiding Judge in
the MDL is Hon. Judge Timothy D. DeGiusti. The lead case is 5:17-

plaintiffs "in all the actions allege[d] similar claims for breach
of warranties, unjust enrichment, and violation of various state
consumer protection acts." In addition, despite the presence of
common counsel, the Panel was persuaded by the fact that, "in each
of these actions, [the plaintiffs] would seek to obtain the same
documentary and testimonial evidence from defendants and third-
party witnesses," as well as expert discovery. Presiding Judge in

MDL 2741: "Bare" Suit v. Monsanto Consolidated in N.D. Cal.
-----------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Elizabeth Bare, surviving heir of
Stephanie Bare-Wheeler on behalf of all legal heirs of Stephanie
Bare-Wheeler; and Estate of Stephanie Bare-Wheeler By and through
her representative Elizabeth Bare, the Plaintiffs, v. Monsanto
Company, the Defendant, Case No. 4:17-cv-02354, was transferred on
Sep. 21, 2017 from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern
District of Missouri, to the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of California (San Francisco). The District Court Clerk
assigned Case No. 3:17-cv-05479-VC to the proceeding.

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

The Bare case is being consolidated with MDL 2741 in re: Roundup
Products Liability Litigation. The MDL was created by Order of the
United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on
October 3, 2016. These actions share common factual questions
arising out of allegations that Monsanto's Roundup herbicide,
particularly its active ingredient, glyphosate, causes non-
Hodgkin's lymphoma. Plaintiffs each allege that they or their
decedents developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after using Roundup
over the course of several or more years. Plaintiffs also allege
that the use of glyphosate in conjunction with other ingredients,
in particular the surfactant polyethoxylated tallow amine (POEA),
renders Roundup even more toxic than glyphosate on its own. Issues
concerning general causation, the background science, and
regulatory history will be common to all actions.

In its October 3, 2016 Order, the MDL Panel found that the actions
in this MDL involve common questions of fact, and that
centralization in the Northern District of California will serve
the convenience of the parties and witnesses and promote the just
and efficient conduct of this litigation. Centralization will
eliminate duplicative discovery; prevent inconsistent pretrial
rulings (including with respect to discovery, privilege, and
Daubert motion practice); and conserve the resources of the
parties, their counsel, and the judiciary. Presiding Judge in the
MDL is Hon. Judge Vince Chhabria. The lead case is 3:16-md-02741-
VC.[BN]

MONSANTO COMPANY: Faces "Sweat" Suit over Herbicide Roundup
-----------------------------------------------------------
ARTHUR SWEAT, the Plaintiff, v. MONSANTO COMPANY, the Defendant,
Case No. 5:17-cv-00127-LGW-RSB (S.D. Ga., Sep. 21, 2017), seeks
for damages suffered by Plaintiff as a direct and proximate result
of Defendant's negligent and wrongful conduct in connection with
the design, development, manufacture, testing, packaging,
promoting, marketing, advertising, distribution, labeling, and/or
sale of the herbicide Roundup (TM), containing the active
ingredient glyphosate.

The Plaintiff maintains that Roundup (TM) and/or glyphosate is
defective, dangerous to human health, unfit and unsuitable to be
marketed and sold in commerce, and lacked proper warnings and
directions as to the dangers associated with its use. The
Plaintiff's injuries, like those striking thousands of similarly
situated victims across the country, were avoidable.

NEW YORK: Mother Fights to End Bullying for Daughter
----------------------------------------------------
Melkorka Licea and Susan Edelman, writing for New York Post,
report that school officials do too little to stop bullying, says
the mother of a 15-year-old victim.

Ashlee Merrill said her daughter, Aleeyah -- a sophomore at Essex
Street Academy on the Lower East Side -- was ridiculed and taunted
on Facebook by a classmate in late August, who also targeted her
in a Snapchat video which threatened, "I'll stab bitches and spit
in their face."

Merrill contacted Families for Excellent Schools, a pro-charter
group that filed a federal class-action suit against the city
Department of Education, charging a failure to address violence
and bullying.

"There was serious violence before -- this was just the worst
we've seen," said the group's lawyer, Jim Walden, referring to
September 27's fatal high-school stabbing over alleged bullying in
The Bronx.

The lawsuit demands that the DOE enforce a protocol to investigate
complaints, and take actions such as removing bullies or letting
victims change schools upon request.

The two sides are close to a settlement, court papers say.

In Aleeyah's case, the menacing video wasn't sent to her alone,
but it was posted minutes after the girl insulted Aleeyah on
Facebook, the mom said.

"This girl was calling my daughter a 'cornball' and a 'follower'
for no reason, then posted that scary video right after," said
Merrill, who was inspired to speak out after last week's bullying-
related bloodshed. "It made her feel really unsafe."

Merrill, 36, said she immediately informed the school principal
and demanded the other girl be removed from her daughter's
homeroom class.

The principal "told me they were going to remove her from my
daughter's class a month ago and still hasn't done anything,"
Merrill said. The school assured Merrill a counselor attempted
"mediation" with the alleged bully. The principal could not
immediately be reached.

"They don't take things seriously. I guess they have to wait until
someone gets hurt for them to help," the mom said.

DOE spokeswoman Toya Holness said in a statement: "We take any
allegation of bullying seriously and provide schools with
resources to ensure a safe and inclusive learning environment.
This incident was reported and we're working closely with the
school to look into it and ensure appropriate follow-up action is
swiftly taken." [GN]

SONOMA COUNTY, CA: Suit Targets Staff's Enhanced Pension Benefits
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Paul Payne, writing for The Press Democrat, reports a new lawsuit
seeks to roll back generous pension benefits granted to Sonoma
County government employees more than a decade ago that are blamed
for spiraling debt and eating away at funding for basic services.

The suit filed by retired Santa Rosa attorney George Luke accuses
elected officials and other county leaders of conflict of interest
for approving increases in 2003 that benefited them directly and
of failing to disclose long-term pension costs to taxpayers, now
estimated at more than $99 million a year for the county.

It asks Sonoma County Superior Court Judge Rene Chouteau to
declare the increases "illegal" and prohibit the county from
making payments to fund them. It names as defendants the Board of
Supervisors, the county administrator, the auditor-controller-
treasurer tax collector, the human resources director and the
Sonoma County Employees' Retirement Association and its chief
administrator.

"When everyone who is supposed to represent the interest of the
taxpayer has their hand in his pocket, his only recourse is to
seek the protection of the courts whose solemn duty is to require
compliance with the law," Luke wrote in his suit filed Aug. 28.

The legal challenge -- which could affect thousands of current and
retired county employees -- comes amid continuing controversy
statewide about pension benefits granted years ago that have
threatened the financial well-being of local governments and
strained their ability to pay for things like road repair and the
hiring of more sheriff's deputies.

Earlier this year, Sonoma County annual pension costs were
projected to hit $146 million by 2023, a 700 percent increase
since 2000. County debt from past pension bonds and long-term
unfunded obligations tied to the retirement system total about
$778 million, equivalent to 49 percent of the county's annual
budget.

Although reforms have been enacted over the past five years at the
state and local level mandating lower benefits for new employees,
critics continue to sound alarms over pension costs. A similar
case pending before the California Supreme Court that arose in
nearby Marin County seeks to overturn the so-called "California
Rule" guaranteeing workers get the pension that was in place at
the time they were hired. The legal challenge was previously
struck down by two lower court judges who deemed it was filed too
late or did not include employee unions. They did not rule on the
merits.

Supervisors Shirlee Zane and David Rabbitt, who've been active on
pension reform since joining the board in 2009 and 2011,
respectively, did not respond to interview requests on September
29 and instead issued a joint, written statement.

"While we share the desire for a sustainable pension system, this
lawsuit is without merit and a waste of taxpayer dollars given
results in Marin cases, public independent analysis of law
following 2012 grand jury report, and new separate analysis of
counsel," the statement said. "Efforts to achieve policy changes
should really be directed to the state Legislature."

Luke's suit targets the way benefits were adopted. It says the
Board of Supervisors failed to comply with state law requiring it
to conduct an actuarial analysis of the costs of new pension
benefits and publish the findings two weeks before any vote. The
allegation was raised in a past county grand jury report about
procedural mistakes and was formally acknowledged by a new group
of elected supervisors in 2012.

The suit also accuses the highest paid county officials, including
the supervisors and retirement system executives, of failing to
recuse themselves from the process and not disclosing any personal
gain to the public.

County officials and union leaders at the time agreed on the
benefit increases to settle a class-action lawsuit brought by
employees in 2002 demanding retroactive pay increases to match
those in other counties.

"All of these participants in this settlement stood to make a lot
of money," the suit said. "And the taxpayers were set up to pay
the bill."

County lawyer Michael G. Colantuono, Esq. of Colantuono, Highsmith
& Whatley, PC, rejected the allegations and will seek to have the
case dismissed at an early stage.

He said a "rule of necessity" law negates any conflict of
interest, allowing public agency managers to work on employee
benefits decisions that affect them, essentially "because there's
no one else to do it."

And he said the county disclosed the costs of the benefits
increase prior to the vote. An actuarial analysis conducted by the
retirement association was part of the staff report that was
circulated in the weeks leading up to adoption, he said.

Further, Colantuono said the suit is barred by the statute of
limitations, which he said protects thousands of employees who
made career decisions based on expectations of a certain level of
salary and benefits.

Luke argues there is no defense based on timing because taxpayer
costs are calculated annually.

The county disagrees.

Colantuono said a realistic solution must be statewide because any
county that goes it alone will find it difficult to recruit and
retain qualified employees who will simply go where the benefits
are higher.

"California's pension problem is a serious issue and it needs
serious attention, but this lawsuit is a false promise of an easy
fix to a complicated problem," Colantuono said.

If Luke's suit is successful, it would be the first in the state.
The county could renegotiate contracts but it would likely face
lawsuits from employee unions.

Jack Buckhorn, executive director of the North Bay Labor Council,
said his 70,000 member affiliates including county employees would
oppose any changes.

"To go back 14 years and attempt to reopen negotiations that have
already been settled in good faith does not seem fair or just,"
Buckhorn said. "We would do everything in our power to make sure
benefits agreed to were maintained." [GN]

SYNGENTA CORP: Agrees to $1.4B Settlement in Corn Growers' Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Jim Krencik, writing for The Daily News Online, reports after
couching his presentations to the area's corn growers with
"maybes" and "ifs" about a national class-action lawsuit and a
potential 10-figure settlement with Syngenta, attorney Scott
Barrett says he can now be more direct.

Barrett and co-counsel John Jernigan said on September 29 that a
reported $1.4 billion global settlement changes their appeal, but
not the timeliness of it.

"This is no longer a matter of telling (corn producers) that they
may get money if they hire a lawyer to represent them," Barrett
said in an email. "This is now a done deal. If (corn producers)
hire a lawyer to represent them in this matter, they will get
money."

Bloomberg reported that Syngenta, an agricultural seed developer,
has agreed to pay U.S. farmers to settle a federal market taint
case and multiple state-level claims.

The lawsuits revolved around a new seed variety that had been
approved for U.S. markets, but not those in China, when it was put
into the market in 2011.

China banned all U.S. corn imports in 2013 after discovering the
unapproved Syngenta corn in their shipments. That was partly
responsible for a commodity plunge which saw the price bushel of a
corn decrease from highs of $6.50 to lows of $3.50. A bumper crop
following fallow years is credited with most of the decline, but
Syngenta is accepting responsibility for its share of the losses.
"Syngenta saw the writing on the wall," Barrett said on a
conference call with Jernigan and The Daily News. "Corn (prices)
are fluid, and the market prices are determined nationwide by
supply and demand. The mere fact that a farmer in Batavia or
Albion or Warsaw doesn't sell to China (didn't shield them from
damages)."

"The loss of the Chinese market made a major impact ... it did
affect price nationwide," Jernigan added. "It wasn't just a bumper
crop that caused the price to go down ... it hasn't recovered, the
price is still down to where it was four years ago."

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE

Barrett, a former Albion resident who practices in Indiana, and
Jernigan, an attorney from Alabama, are part of quartet of
attorneys who have been making house calls throughout the summer
to inform farmers of their ability to participate in the class-
action case. They, and Albion attorney Conrad Cropsey and attorney
Ken Walsh of Westchester County, are maintaining their travel
schedule to warn that a deadline to participate is looming.
"We don't know what the cut-off date will be ... but we do know
there will be a deadline to file lawsuits," Barrett said.
For local growers to participate, they'd need to secure a Form 578
from their local Farm Service Agency office covering the years
2011 to 2016. They would also need to sign with an attorney who
will add them to claimants in an Illinois-based lawsuit.
Growers would have either had to have produced corn for the
market.

Sweet corn is included. In the case of field corn, it includes any
product that was not solely grown and turned into animal feed for
internal use without a third-party involved.
Jernigan said that in his dealings with GLOW area farmers this
summer, most were aware of the Syngenta case, but didn't think the
lawsuit would amount to anything.

"They took the notices, the postcards and threw them in the
garbage can," he said. "When you can sit down and explain the
magnitude of the case and the settlement, and how much they might
get, almost all of them want on board."

Joining the class action is the priority, Barrett said. A special
master, a settlement committee and Syngenta's lawyers are
scheduled to present a final settlement to a federal court in
Kansas City on Oct. 20, and the deadline within it may be in the
future. But he said it also may be Oct. 15 or earlier.

"I think we've been reasonably successful (in informing growers)
but there's an urgency with the matter now that there will likely
be a cut off date for new cases," Barrett said. "When we'd talk in
August, we were talking about that there may be a settlement, and
that we thought it will settle and if you hire a lawyer you'll get
paid. Now we know that if people sign up they will get
compensation . . . we do know that if corn producers don't act
quickly, they very well may not be able to participate in the
settlement. [GN]

UNITED HEALTHCARE: Families Sue Over Addiction & Health Coverage
----------------------------------------------------------------
Liz Collin, writing for CBS Local, reports that with the most
prolific heroin dealer in Hennepin County history sentenced to
prison, a Twin Cities family is now taking on a Minnesota-based
health insurance company.

Max Tillitt died two years ago from an overdose. His family tried
desperately for years to get him help for his addiction. The
Tillitts are one of more than 50,000 families taking United
Healthcare to court, saying the company wrongfully denied coverage
for years.

The lawsuit was first filed in 2014 and will finally go to trial
next month. It claims that again and again United Healthcare
denied mental health and substance abuse treatment coverage,
violating their customers' insurance plans on a routine basis and
making already heartbreaking circumstances that much more
complicated.

"He suffered with the heroin for about three years," Dee Dee
Tillitt, Max's mother, said.

A football injury sent Max Tillitt looking for pain relief in high
school when he found heroin.

"There were so many days I wished he had cancer," Dee Dee said.
"Who would wish cancer on their kid? I would, because the disease
is so horrible. So horrible."

Navigating a treatment plan only made things worse, with mounting
bills over medications, psychiatrists and psychologists. In
theory, health insurance companies should make that easier, but
thousands of families across the country say that's not the case.

They're suing Minnetonka-based United Healthcare, which
adjudicates mental health and substance abuse claims for more than
one in five Americans, claiming it's violating legal duties it
owes to health insurance plan participants. The families say the
company came up with guidelines that downplay chronic and complex
mental health and substance abuse issues.

While attorneys didn't want Dee Dee Tillitt to share specifics
about the issues with their coverage, the family did spend more
than $150,000 out-of-pocket trying to find Max help -- and his
mother works in the healthcare field. She says even that wasn't
enough to save her son.

"My goal is -- how can I make this so other parents don't have to
go through this nightmare that I live, and continue to live?" she
said.

United Healthcare released a statement on the lawsuit that said,
in part: "We are committed to helping people receive the evidence-
based mental health and substance use treatments they need."

The class action lawsuit is set to go to trial on Oct. 16 in San
Francisco. [GN]


UNITED STATES: Michigan Case Offers Hope for Indonesians
--------------------------------------------------------
Judie Curie, writing for Fosters, reports that attorneys who
argued successfully in federal court on September  26 to stop the
deportation of local Indonesians cited a Michigan case involving
Iraqi Christians that allowed them the opportunity to try to stay
in the United States.

Attorneys from Nixon Peabody LLP, with offices in Boston and
Manchester, went before Chief Judge Patti Saris at the U.S.
District Court to try to have the cases of 69 Indonesians
considered a class-action. They also asked for a temporary
restraining order and a preliminary injunction to hold off the
deportations. Saris said she was not prepared to rule on the class
action status, but ordered a stay of removal.

Attorney Ronaldo Rauseo-Ricupero cited the July 24 ruling by U.S.
District Judge Mark Goldsmith, of the Eastern District of
Michigan, granting an injunction to block the deportation of Iraqi
Christians.

Goldsmith's ruling stated that the government's opposition to the
stay ignores, "the compelling confluence of extraordinary
circumstances . . . without warning 1,400 Iraqi nationals
discovered that their removal orders -- many of which had lain
dormant for several years -- were now to be immediately enforced."

It was much the same for local Indonesians who also had been here
for many years after fleeing religious persecution. They were
denied asylum in the United States, but then were allowed to stay.

Attorneys Kimberly Scott and Wendy Richards are with Miller
Canfield in Detroit, the firm that successfully argued the
Michigan case to stop the deportations.

According to Scott, their case was really about whether the
immigrants are getting due process under the Constitution and
whether the government is violating constitutional rights in the
way they are enforcing the removal orders.

Scott said it somewhat parallels the situation of the Indonesians
in that the Iraqi nationals had orders of removal by the
immigration court, issued at a time when Iraq wasn't accepting
repatriation, so the government placed them under orders of
supervision and they were allowed to stay. The faced similar
guidelines, having to check in regularly but were allowed to work.

"Many of these Iraqi nationals have been in the United States for
10 to 20 years," Scott said. "They have gone along with their
lives, gotten married and obtained jobs. Then earlier this year,
without any notice, the government detained them with the plan to
remove them back to Iraq."

Scott said when the original orders of removal were issued, what
was happening in Iraq was very different from what is happening
today. [GN]


UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA: Faces Legal Scrutiny in Concussions Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Steve Berkowitz, writing for USA TODAY Sports, reports the
University of Florida and Purdue are among four schools whose
football programs could face significant legal scrutiny concerning
their handling of head injuries, according to a document filed
with a federal court in Chicago on September 29.

Lawsuits naming the schools' respective conferences and the NCAA
as defendants have been offered as the sample cases for a group of
nearly 100 actions seeking monetary damages on behalf of former
players who claim they suffered, or are suffering, from the
effects of concussions. Weber State and Pittsburg State, a
Division II school in Kansas, are the other universities that may
have to go through detailed pre-trial evidence gathering.

The cases stem from a national class-action concussions suit
against the NCAA now set to be largely covered by a $75 million
settlement that would fund a medical monitoring program for
college athletes, as well as research.

However, when U.S. District Judge John Z. Lee gave preliminary
approval to the settlement, he allowed plaintiffs to pursue
personal-injury claims on a class-action basis as long as those
suits didn't seek a nationwide class or a class consisting of
athletes from more than one NCAA school.

That so far has led to the filing of 96 lawsuits involving schools
and conferences from coast to coast in all three of the NCAA's
membership divisions. Nearly all of the cases name the NCAA and a
conference as a defendant. When plaintiffs played at a private
school or certain public schools in Pennsylvania, the school also
was named. When the plaintiffs played at a public school, the
school was not named as a defendant because of the potential
difficulties related to suing state institutions -- but putative
classes were based players at the specific school.

For pretrial purposes, all of these cases were assigned to Lee,
who also is handling separate and longer-standing individual
damages claims that have been made against the NCAA by former
Central Arkansas football player Derek Owens and former Maine
hockey player Kyle Solomon.

The prospect of the other 96 cases going forward separately could
cause legal chaos. To avoid that while maintaining his intent to
not have a nationwide damages class, Lee ordered attorneys
representing both plaintiffs and defendants to select sample cases
from the 96. Two chosen by each side would be allowed to proceed
while the others were placed on hold.

The idea is to use the sample cases to test the viability of the
remaining cases. The depth of pretrial evidence gathering that
could occur will depend on a variety legal maneuvering by the NCAA
and the conferences, as well as rulings by Lee. A status hearing
before Lee is scheduled for Oct. 19, court documents say.

Lawyers for the NCAA and the conferences chose suits filed on
behalf of:

Florida wide receiver Jamie Richardson, who played from 1994 to
1996. The case names the Southeastern Conference as the other
defendant, and seeks to represent Florida players from 1952
through 2010.

Purdue linebacker Mike Rose and tight end Tim Stratton. Rose
played from 1996 through 1999; Stratton played from 1998 through
2001, was twice named first-team all-Big Ten Conference and won
the 2000 John Mackey Award as the nation's top tight end. The case
names the Big Ten as the other defendant and seeks to represent
Purdue players from 1952 through 2010.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs chose suits filed on behalf of:

   * The estate and family of Zack Langston, who played linebacker
at Pittsburg State, a Division II school in Kansas, from 2007 to
2010. Langston committed suicide in 2014, shooting himself in the
chest, according to court filings. The filings also say his brain
was sent to researchers at Boston University who found he was
suffering from CTE. The case names the Mid-America Intercollegiate
Athletics Association as the other defendant and seeks to
represent former Pittsburg State players, as well as a class of
legal dependents of those players.

   * Weber State defensive lineman Eric Weston, who played in 1996
and '97. The case names the Big Sky Conference as the other
defendant and seeks to represent Weber State players between 1952
and 2010. According the document filed on September 29, Weston has
been diagnosed with "major depressive disorder and a major
neurocognitive disorder, frontal lobe impairment."

While the plaintiffs said in September 29 night's filing that the
four cases selected were representative of the 96 cases as a whole
"and not, for example, the best possible case for either side,"
the defendants said that they believe Weston and Langston
"allegedly suffered some of the most severe injuries of any of the
named plaintiffs in any of" the 96 cases.

Although Lee's order in the nationwide case set the stage for the
96 lawsuits to be filed, the order also indicated it will not be
easy for the plaintiffs to have their cases certified as class
actions. Absent that designation, the cases would apply only to
their named plaintiffs.

The record in the nationwide case "does not provide sufficient
facts from which the Court can conclude that a class that is much
more narrowly defined in terms of size, type of sport, and/or time
period could never be certified against a particular school," Lee
wrote. "Nor can the Court conclude from the present record that a
very narrowly defined, single-school personal injury class could
never be certified against the NCAA. This is not to say that such
efforts to certify personal injury claims against even individual
schools and the NCAA would not face significant, perhaps
insurmountable, hurdles." [GN]


UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA: Parties Square Off Again Over Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Tom Foreman Jr. , writing for Philadelphia Tribute, reports that
attorneys for The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and
athletes who played for the school argued in a state court on
September 29 whether a lawsuit filed against the school in
connection with an academic scandal should be dismissed.

In April, a judge granted the school's motion to remove the case
from federal court, sending it back to a state court. The latest
arguments were heard in a Rockingham County courtroom.

Initially, former football player Michael McAdoo filed a class-
action lawsuit amid the scandal tied to irregular courses in
African-American studies, a department popular with athletes.
Former football player Devon Ramsay and ex-women's basketball
player Rashanda McCants filed a separate lawsuit, which was the
basis of the arguments presented to Forsyth County Superior Court
Judge Eric Morgan in the courtroom in Wentworth.

Lisa Gilford, an attorney from a New York-based law firm
representing UNC, said what the plaintiffs are alleging is
"educational malpractice," noting that a previous decision said
"they had to go further than 'my education wasn't good enough.'"
She said the case wasn't about academic irregularities, but more
about the plaintiffs' claims.

Gilford also reiterated the argument that the lawsuit should be
dismissed because a three-year statute of limitations had passed.

Robert F. Orr, Esq. -- richard.orr@uconn.edu -- the attorney
representing Ramsay and McCants, said the idea of a breach of
contract is at the heart of his clients' claim.

"We're not talking about these classes were easy classes," Orr
said. "These were illegitimate classes . . . We seek to hold the
university accountable."

McCants and Ramsay combined to take three problem AFAM courses
while majoring in other departments, according to their lawsuit.
In previous arguments, attorneys for McAdoo and McBee said their
clients had taken one or two of the irregular courses during each
semester in school. McBee graduated with a double major, one
coming in the AFAM department, while McAdoo withdrew from school
to pursue a professional playing career after being ruled
permanently ineligible for academic violations in 2010.

Morgan didn't indicate when he would issue a decision. Attorneys
for both sides said they didn't expect a ruling on September 29.

WALMART STORES: Judge Saves Investors' Derivative Claim
-------------------------------------------------------
Jack Newsham, writing for Law360, reports an Arkansas federal
judge on September 29 rejected a request by retail giant Wal-Mart
Stores Inc. to throw out a damages calculation method in a class
action that the store said would violate the Private Securities
Litigation Reform Act, saying the law didn't rule out the
prospect.

In an unusual motion to dismiss earlier this year, Walmart accused
the plaintiffs of trying to shoehorn a "classic disguised
derivative claim" into their class action over reports of rampant
bribery at its Mexican affiliate. The lead plaintiff, the
municipal retirement fund City of Pontiac General Employees'
Retirement System, or PGERS, insisted that its references to
Walmart's outlays and reputational expenses related to the scandal
would only be relevant in the damages stage of the case, however.

Walmart argued that the plaintiffs lacked standing to seek those
kinds of damages, however, saying references to a "build-up
method" of calculating damages was an obvious effort to avoid the
mathematical cap on shareholder losses included in the Private
Securities Litigation Reform Act. U.S. District Judge Susan Hickey
rejected that argument, however, saying a "plain reading" of the
law makes clear that calculating damages based on market price
fluctuations is optional.

"In what appears to be an effort to avoid th[e] cap on damages,
PGERS presents an alternative method for calculating damages --
the build-up method -- which does not reference market price," the
judge wrote. "Nothing in the provision cited above, however,
limits PGERS to measuring damages by reference to market price."

The judge said it was still too early to decide on which damages
method to use, however. With discovery ongoing, several motions
still pending and no trial date scheduled, the court said that
expert analysis and testimony would likely play a role in the
ultimate damages calculation.

The certified class of investors, led by PGERS, seeks damages from
Walmart related to a drop in its stock price that followed a 2012
New York Times report that the company had turned a blind eye to
extensive bribery at Walmart de Mexico. The report triggered fears
that the retail giant might be fined under the Foreign Corrupt
Practices Act.

Walmart has said it believes the plaintiffs' bid to keep the
build-up method on the table is a way to get around the Private
Securities Litigation Reform Act's calculation method, which
reduces the liability for companies whose stocks bounce back
within a few months of a drop. The retailer noted that not only
did its stock price recover in the 90 days that followed the Times
report, but it actually rose $10 higher than its pre-drop level.

Judge Hickey's decision leaves the door open for the plaintiffs to
use another method, however.

Class counsel Jason Forge called the decision "a great way to kick
off the weekend," but said there was still a lot of work to do.

"We continue to believe that the damages claimed by the plaintiffs
are not supported by the law or the facts," said Randy Hargrove, a
Walmart spokesman. "Beyond that, we are weighing our options."

* Equifax Data Breach Adds Fuel to Fight Over Binding Arbitration
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Jim Henry , writing for Forbes, reports both sides are digging in,
as an effort to repeal a rule published by the Consumer Financial
Protection Bureau heads for the U.S. Senate.

The CFPB rule, which was published in July, severely limits
lenders' ability to compel consumers to submit disputes to binding
arbitration instead of taking disputes to court, and makes it
easier for consumers to file class-action lawsuits.

Binding arbitration is a common provision in auto loans.

Supporters of the CFPB say binding arbitration denies consumers
their "day in court." The recent Equifax data breach added fuel to
the fire, since consumer advocate groups such as Americans for
Financial Reform say that binding arbitration would prevent
consumers from filing a class action suit in the matter.

Shutterstock

Meanwhile, on Sept. 29 a group of pro-business lobbying
organizations filed a complaint in U.S. District Court seeking an
injunction to prevent the consumer bureau from enforcing the rule.

"If left unchecked, the CFPB's rule will harm consumers and
businesses alike while providing a financial windfall to the class
action plaintiffs' bar," the business groups said in a letter last
week, announcing the lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District
Court in Dallas.

The group consists of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the American
Bankers Association, the American Financial Services Association,
the Consumer Bankers Association, the Financial Services
Roundtable, and a coalition of trade associations located
throughout Texas.

Opponents of the CFPB, including the Republican majority of the
U.S. House of Representatives Financial Services Committee,
sarcastically call the anti-arbitration rule The Trial Lawyers'
Relief Act, since in their view plaintiffs' attorneys, not
consumers, are the biggest financial beneficiaries of the new
rule. [GN]
