AFS GENERAL: Bid to Certify Class in Bobo's Drugs Suit Denied
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Richard A. Lazzara denied without prejudice the
Plaintiff's perfunctory motion for class certification filed in
the lawsuit styled BOBO'S DRUGS v. AFS GENERAL CONTRACTING, LLC,
CSG, CONSOLIDATED SERVICE GROUP, INC., and JOHN DOES 1-10, Case
No. 8:17-cv-02552-RAL-AAS (M.D. Fla.).

"Plaintiff's perfunctory Motion for Class Certification (Dkt. 5),
in which Plaintiff's counsel acknowledges 'additional discovery is
necessary for the court to determine whether to certify the class
Plaintiff seeks to represent[,]' is denied without prejudice as
premature," according to the Court's order.

ALDRIDGE PITE: Certification of Class Sought in "Neumer" Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
Mary Neumer moves the Court to certify the class described in the
complaint of the lawsuit entitled MARY NEUMER, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. ALDRIDGE PITE HAAN,
LLP, Case No. 2:17-cv-01502-JPS (E.D. Wisc.), and further asks
that the Court both stay the motion for class certification and to
grant her (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, Ms. Neumer contends, 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.").

Ms. Neumer says she is obligated to move for class certification
to protect the interests of the putative class.  She adds that
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 asserts.

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

ALLIED UNIVERSAL: "Douglas" Suit Seeks Minimum Wage under FLSA
--------------------------------------------------------------
KIRK DOUGLAS, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. ALLIED UNIVERSAL SECURITY SERVICES,
ALLIED BARTON SECURITY SERVICES LLC and ALLIED SECURITY HOLDINGS
LLC, the Defendants, Case No. 1:17-cv-06093-ARR-RML (E.D.N.Y.,
Oct. 18, 2017), seeks to recover minimum wage compensation, "gap
time" compensation, and overtime compensation, and unlawful
deductions by separate transactions from Plaintiffs' wages in
violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York Labor Law.

The Class is made up of all persons who are or have been employed
by Defendants as Security Agents, Operations Assistants or
Supervisors at JFK within the period of six years prior to this
action's filing date and who were subject to Defendants' unlawful
policy and/or practice of failing to pay Plaintiffs minimum wage,
gap time compensation, and/or overtime premiums for all hours
worked over 40 in a given workweek, failing to keep accurate
records of hours Plaintiffs actually worked, subjecting Plaintiffs
to a practice of unlawful deduction by separate transaction for
business-related expenses, and/or failing to provide Plaintiffs
with accurate wage statements reflecting all hours, including
overtime and gap time hours worked.

Allied Universal is a facility services company based in the
United States. It also offers security systems solutions,
janitorial services and staffing.[BN]

ALPHA RECOVERY: Certification of Class Sought in "Olson" Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
Deborah Olson moves the Court to certify the class described in
the complaint of the lawsuit styled DEBORAH OLSON, Individually
and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. ALPHA RECOVERY
CORP., Case No. 2:17-cv-01494 (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.").

While the Seventh Circuit has held that the specific procedure
described in Campbell-Ewald cannot force the individual settlement
of a class representative's claims, the same decision cautions
that other methods may prevent a plaintiff from representing a
class, the Plaintiff tells the Court, citing Fulton Dental, LLC v.
Bisco, Inc., No. 16-3574, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 10839 *9-10 (7th
Cir. June 20, 2017).  The Plaintiff asserts that one defendant has
attempted a similar tactic by sending a certified check to the
proposed class representative. Bonin v. CBS Radio, Inc., No. 16-
cv-674-CNC (E.D. Wis.); see also 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).

The Plaintiff is obligated to move for class certification to
protect the interests of the putative class, the Plaintiff
contends.

As the Motion to certify a class is a placeholder motion as
described in Damasco, the parties and the Court should not be

counsel.

ANSAM COMMERCIAL: 13-50 River Road Moves for Class Certification
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiff in the lawsuit titled 13-50 RIVER ROAD CORP. d/b/a
EMPRESS DINER, individually and as the representative of a class
of similarly-situated persons v. ANSAM COMMERCIAL KITCHEN AND
VENTILATION SPECIALISTS, INC., Case No. 2:16-cv-00710-JMV-JBC

APPFOLIO INC: "Leo" Sues Over Erroneous Consumer Report
-------------------------------------------------------
Anthony James Leo, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Appfolio, Inc., Defendant, Case No. 3:17-
cv-05771 (W.D. Wash., September 27, 2017), seeks actual, statutory
and punitive damages, prejudgment and post-judgment interest,
attorney's fees and costs and such other relief for violation of
the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Plaintiff applied for an apartment with Aspen Real Estate &
Property Management Group NW, Inc. who then ordered an AppFolio
consumer tenant screening report. Said consumer report
inaccurately stated that he had an eviction record from 2015, even
though the record states that the eviction defendant was "Tanya
Lee" and occurred in West Greenville, South Carolina. This
eviction record belongs to an unrelated person, and Plaintiff does
not have a civil judgment for an eviction from 2015 in West
Greenville, South Carolina, says the complaint.

BMW AG: Marur and Patel File Antitrust Suit v. German Car Makers
----------------------------------------------------------------
Vinod Marur and Kunal Patel, Plaintiffs, on behalf of themselves
and other similarly situated v. BMW AG, BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC,
VOLKSWAGEN AG, VOLKSWAGEN GROUPOF AMERICA, INC., AUDI AG, AUDI OF
AMERICA, INC., AUDI OF AMERICA, LLC, DR. ING. H.C. F. PORSCHE AG,
PORSCHECARS NORTH AMERICA, INC., DAIMLER AG, MERCEDES-BENZ USA,
LLC,MERCEDES-BENZ VANS, LLC, MERCEDESBENZ U.S. INTERNATIONAL,
INC., ROBERTBOSCH GMBH, and ROBERT BOSCH LLC, Case No.3:17-cv-
05865 (N.D. Cal., October 12, 2017), is a civil antitrust action
seeking damages arising out of a vast, 20-year conspiracy by the
largest and most profitable German automobile manufacturers --
Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche, and Volkswagen -- which was intended
to, and did, create the perception of innovation and competition
among them, while in fact they agreed to eliminate or severely
curtail competition.

Plaintiff Vinod Marur, is a software engineering professional in
the Bay Area, a citizen of California, residing in Palo Alto,
California.  He bought a 2013 Audi A8 3.0L on May 23, 2013, at
cartelligent.com in San Jose.

Plaintiff Kunal Patel, is a biotechnology market planning manager
in the Bay Area. Plaintiff is a citizen of California, residing in
San Francisco, and leased a 2017 Audi A4 in February 2017 at Audi
Stevens Creek in San Jose, California.

Plaintiffs seek damages and injunctive relief, and other relief
pursuant to the federal and state antitrust laws on behalf of
purchasers and lessors of certain new German automobiles.

Plaintiffs contend they were injured by paying inflated prices for
German Automobiles.  Plaintiffs paid a premium for their German
Automobiles that were marketed as having advanced German
technology. The premium paid by Plaintiffs reflected Defendants'
ability to price German Automobiles as though Defendants competed
to deliver cutting edge technology when, unbeknownst to
Plaintiffs, they did not.

The conspiracy alleged herein may have resulted in one of the
greatest frauds ever perpetuated on U.S. consumers and regulators.
Plaintiffs seek treble damages, attorneys' fees and costs as well
as pre-judgment and post-judgment interest as permitted by
law.[BN]

The Plaintiff in the lawsuit entitled JULIET KAGNO, on behalf of

     All persons (a) with a Florida address, (b) to whom Bush
     Ross, P.A., (c) from June 16, 2016 through October 11, 2017,
     (d) in connection with an attempt to collect any alleged
     debt incurred for personal, family, or household purposes,
     (e) mailed an initial debt collection communication not
     returned to Bush Ross, P.A. as undeliverable that: (1)
     stated "[u]nless the entire sum is paid within thirty (30)
     days of the date of this letter, we may proceed with action
     to protect the Association's interests, including, but not
     limited to the recording of a claim of lien, which can
     result in additional attorney's fees, costs and interest,"
     and/or (2) stated "[i]f you notify the attorney named below
     within the said 30-day period that the aforesaid debt, or
     any portion thereof, is disputed, the attorney named below
     shall obtain written verification of said debt . . . and
     mail same to you," and/or (3) failed to provide a statement

CABOT OIL: Misclassifies Workers, "Conley" Suit Alleges
-------------------------------------------------------
JACKIE D. CONLEY, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated v CABOT OIL AND GAS CORPORATION, Case No.
2:17-cv-01391-CB (W.D. Pa., October 26, 2017) seeks to recover
unpaid overtime wages and other damages from Cabot Oil under the
Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") and the Pennsylvania Minimum
Wage Act, 43 Pa. Stat. Ann. Sec. 333.104 ("PMWA").

Cabot is an oil and natural gas exploration and production company
operating worldwide and throughout the United States, including in
Pennsylvania. To provide services to many of its customers, Cabot
contracts with certain companies to provide it with personnel to
perform the necessary work.

Many of these individuals worked for Cabot on a day-rate basis,
were misclassified as independent contractors, and make up the
proposed Putative Class, according to the lawsuit.  While exact
job titles and job duties may differ, these employees are
subjected to the same or similar illegal pay practices for similar
work.

Cabot classified all of these workers as independent contractors
and paid them a flat sum for each day worked, regardless of the
number of hours that they worked that day (or in that workweek)
and failed to provide them with overtime pay for hours that they
worked in excess of 40 hours in a workweek.

Cabot has violated, and is violating, Section 7 of the FLSA, 29
U.S.C. Sec. 207, by employing employees in an enterprise engaged
in commerce or in the production of goods for commerce within the
meaning of the FLSA for workweeks longer than 40 hours without
compensating those employees for their employment in excess of 40
hours per week at rates no less than 1-1/2 times the regular rates
for which they were employed.

Conley and each member of the Pennsylvania Class seek unpaid
overtime in amount equal to 1.5 times the regular rate of pay for
work performed in excess of 40 hours in a workweek, prejudgment
interest, all available penalty wages, and such other legal and
equitable relief.[BN]

CARDONE TRAINING: Orozco Sues over Work Disparate Treatment
-----------------------------------------------------------
PEDRO OROZCO, on behalf of himself and others similarly situated,
Plaintiff, v. CARDONE TRAINING TECHNOLOGIES, INC., A Foreign
Profit Corporation Defendant, the Defendant, Case No. 63017332
(Circuit Court of the Eleven Judicial Circuit in and for Miami-
Dade County, FL, Oct. 18, 2017), seeks to recover damages as a
result of Defendant's violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

According to the complaint, Mr. Orozco worked for Defendant from
February 15, 2015, through his constructive discharge on January
4, 2016. Immediately upon Plaintiffs hiring, Plaintiff, and other
employees of Defendant, were instructed/directed, that they were
required to attend Scientology training and education, as a term
and condition of her/their employment with Defendant. Plaintiff,
and others, objected to Defendant's insistence that employees be
required to attend Scientology training and education, as a term
and condition his/their employment. As a result of such objections
to Defendant's insistence on Scientology training/education,
Plaintiff, and others similarly situated, were subjected to
disparate treatment such as a hostile work environment and
unfavorable working conditions. Those individuals who agreed to
Defendant's requirement that employees attend Scientology training
and education, were not subjected to adverse treatment. Plaintiff,
and others, were fired and/or or forced to leave as a result of
her/their direct refusal to adhere to the principles of
Scientology as a term and condition of his/their employment with
Defendant.

The Defendant operates, among others, a company that "primarily
develops visual and audio products geared towards enhancing
individuals and corporation's production through sales."[BN]

CEMPRA INC: "Tran" Suit Seeks to Block Sale to Melinta
------------------------------------------------------
Nhu Tran, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiffs, v. Cempra Inc., Garheng Kong, David
Zaccardelli, Michael R. Dougherty, David Gill, Dov A. Goldstein,
John H. Johnson, Richard Kent and P. Sherrill Neff, Defendants,
Case No. 1:17-cv-00870, (M.D. N.C., September 27, 2017), seeks to
preliminarily and permanently enjoin defendants and all persons
acting in concert with them from proceeding with, consummating, or
closing the acquisition of Cempra by Melinta, awarding rescissory
damages in the event defendants consummate the merger, reasonable
allowance for plaintiff's attorneys' and experts' fees and such
other and further relief under the Securities Exchange Act of
1934.

Melinta stockholders are expected to own 51.9% of the post-close
Cempra while former Cempra stockholders are expected to own 48.1%
of the newly-formed Melinta Therapeutics. Plaintiff alleges that
this does not reflect a fair value of the company.

The merger documents omitted the company's financial projections
and the analyses critical from Morgan Stanley and Co. LLC in
evaluating the company's offer price, says the complaint.

Cempra is clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focusing on anti-
bacterial drugs for critical medical needs where Kong serves as
Chairman of the Board.   [BN]

EVO INCORPORATED: Class of Field Hands Certified in "Hobbs" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Melinda Harmon entered an opinion and order in the
lawsuit entitled JEROD HOBBS, et al. v. EVO INCORPORATED, et al.,
Case No. 4:16-cv-00770 (S.D. Tex.), granting the Plaintiffs'
motion for conditional certification and issuance of notice to
potential class members.

The conditionally certified class is defined as:

     All field hands operating still and/or video cameras
     attached to wireline trucks in workover, drilling and
     completion operations in the oil and gas industry, or held
     similar job positions that included similar job duties,
     employed by Defendant EVO, from March 24, 2013, through the
     Court's entry of this Order in the geographical area of West
     Virginia.

Judge Harmon ruled that within 10 days of the entry of the Order,
the Defendants must disclose to the Plaintiffs the names, job
titles, last known addresses, e-mail addresses, mobile phone
numbers, and dates of employment of putative class members in a
usable electronic format.  Within 10 days of the Defendants
providing this information, the Plaintiffs shall send copies of
the notice and consent forms to putative class members, and may
send a second copy 25 days after the first copy is sent in order
to confirm receipt.  Forty-five days from the first mailing of
notice will be the deadline for putative class members to file
their notice and consent forms.

Class members, who have not submitted their notice and consent
forms by this date may not join the lawsuit unless stipulated to
by the parties or good cause is shown.  The Court has read the
proposed notice and consent form and finds it acceptable, but
modifies the class description to be restricted to the
geographical area of West Virginia, and the Defendants have not
argued that the notice form or the notice schedule is improper.

Also pending before the Court is Defendant Sam Copeman's Motion to
File an Amended Declaration in Support of His Motion to Dismiss.
On May 5, 2017, Mr. Copeman filed an unopposed motion to withdraw
his Motion to Dismiss.  Accordingly, the motion to file an amended
declaration in support of the motion to dismiss is moot, Judge
Harmon further ruled.

EXCELSIOR COLLEGE: Williams et al. Sue Over Nursing Program
-----------------------------------------------------------
Shewanda Williams, Bryan D. Hunter, Jeff Gordon, Micki Marie
Dickerson, Kevin Philpott, Kabwike Ntanga, Bruse Ogilvie Kimberly
Robertson-Davidson, John Lowman, Ryan Matthew Cavo, Kelli Ramsey-
Gunn v Excelsior College, Case No. 1:17-cv-06263 (E.D.N.Y.,
October 26, 2017), is a class action to address misrepresentations
and omissions made by Excelsior College in connection with its
Associate Degree in Nursing ("ADN") program.

Excelsior represents publicly that Excelsior is a private entity,
headquartered in Albany, New York, which purports to provide
distance educational services to consumers nationwide in the area
of nursing, among other degrees.  Excelsior's activities in
operating its Associate Degree in Nursing ("ADN") program occur in
New York.  Excelsior does not operate its program through separate
subsidiaries outside of New York. Although Excelsior suggests that
it has buildings in states where consumers, including the
Plaintiffs, reside, Excelsior -- in addition to running the entire
ADN program from New York -- conducts tests out of sites that are
located in jurisdictions that are not necessarily where Plaintiffs
reside. The test centers are not permanent in nature.  By way of
example, on August 3, 2017, Excelsior advised exam takers that the
"CPNE scheduling has been suspended" at four different Georgia
sites.

According to the complaint, Excelsior misrepresents that there are
testing sites available for consumers to take the CPNE within a
few months. After enrolling and spending significant time and
resources in the Excelsior program, the Plaintiffs find that the
representations regarding the sites are not true. Excelsior has
difficulties in maintaining and staffing its sites with qualified
"examiners." Excelsior fails to inform consumers of these failures
and difficulties, and Plaintiffs often wait for months to be
assigned a testing site. Excelsior has egregiously forced certain
Plaintiffs who were CPNE eligible to wait over one year to take
the CPNE. Excelsior continues to have outrageously long wait-times
for the CPNE that they do not inform consumers about at the time
of admission.

Plaintiffs would not have enrolled in Defendant's program if they
knew the truth about the CPNE wait-times or about the problems EC
has with its CPNE testing sites. The Defendant also failed to
disclose to consumers and potential consumers its associate
nursing program graduation rates. As a result of the
representations and omissions, Plaintiffs suffered significant
losses, including funds expended in registration and annual fees,
course fees, testing fees, workshop fees, conference fees, travel
expenses, funds expended in relation to the deceptive program, and
lost wages occasioned, in part, by waiting for months beyond the
promised dates to take the CPNE.[BN]

FINANCIAL RECOVERY: Class Certification Sought in "Guerrido" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Jennie Guerrido moves the Court to certify the class described in
the complaint of the lawsuit styled JENNIE GUERRIDO, Individually
and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. FINANCIAL
RECOVERY SERVICES, INC., Case No. 2:17-cv-01503-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 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.  The Plaintiff adds that 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.

FMC TECHNOLOGIES: Moten Moves to Certify Class of Engineers

GENPACT SERVICES: Class Certification Sought in "O'Boyle" Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
Anne O'Boyle moves the Court to certify the class described in the
complaint of the lawsuit titled ANNE O'BOYLE, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. GENPACT SERVICES LLC,
Case No. 2:17-cv-01397-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.").

While the Seventh Circuit has held that the specific procedure
described in Campbell-Ewald cannot force the individual settlement
of a class representative's claims, the same decision cautions
that other methods may prevent a plaintiff from representing a
class, the Plaintiff tells the Court, citing Fulton Dental, LLC v.
Bisco, Inc., No. 16-3574, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 10839 *9-10 (7th
Cir. June 20, 2017).  The Plaintiff asserts that one defendant has
attempted a similar tactic by sending a certified check to the
proposed class representative. Bonin v. CBS Radio, Inc., No. 16-
cv-674-CNC (E.D. Wis.); see also 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).

The Plaintiff is obligated to move for class certification to
protect the interests of the putative class, the Plaintiff
contends.

As this Motion to Certify a class is a placeholder motion as
described in Damasco, the parties and the Court should not be
burdened with unnecessary paperwork and the resulting expense when
short motion to certify and stay should suffice until an amended
motion is filed, the Plaintiff contends.

HUMANA AT HOME: Poggi's Cert. Bid Denied; Must Amend Suit Nov. 13
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Susan C. Bucklew denied the Plaintiff's motion for
conditional certification and facilitation of court-authorized
notice in the lawsuit captioned DAVID POGGI, on his own behalf and
others similarly situated v. HUMANA AT HOME 1, INC. and HUMANA,
INC., Case No. 8:17-cv-00433-SCB-MAP (M.D. Fla.).

In his motion, Mr. Poggi defined a putative nationwide class as:

     [A]ll non-exempt Healthcare Coordinators, Personal Health
     Coaches, Home Visit Field Case Managers, Wellness
     Coordinators and other similarly-situated customer contact
     employees who worked for Defendant from February 2014 to the
     present, who worked more than forty (40) hours per week, and
     who, by virtue of Defendant's unlawful "Workforce
     Optimization Policy," were not paid for: (a) all time spent
     working outside their regularly-scheduled shifts to complete
     their daily and/or weekly quota requirements; and/or (b) all
     electronically recorded rest periods of short duration (less
     than 20 minutes) as defined by 29 C.F.R. Section 785.18, et
     seq.

"The flaw in Poggi's argument, however, is that this is not a case
that lends itself to being a representative action, because
individualized issues predominate.  The Court is cognizant of
Poggi's argument that this concern should be dealt with in the
second step of the conditional certification analysis after
discovery has been completed, but the individualized nature of the
claims will not change once discovery has been completed,"
according to the order.

Judge Bucklew ruled that Mr. Poggi may file a third amended
complaint by November 13, 2017, for the sole purpose of adding
Harry Cruz, Celine Daniel, Heather Teppe, Tharius Bethel, Chimere
Ford, Cherilyn Marrero, and Sashana Nixon as named plaintiffs.

HYATT CORPORATION: Rap Al Sues over Biometric Information
---------------------------------------------------------
Robin Rap Al, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v., the Defendant, Case No. 2017CH14483
(in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Ill, Oct. 30, 2017), seeks
to recover damages for Defendant's violations of the Illinois
Biometric Information Privacy Act.

According to the complaint, Hyatt employees in Illinois have been
required to clock "in" and "out" of their work shifts by scanning
their fingerprints, and Hyatt's biometric computer systems then
verify the employee and clock the employee "in" or "out." Unlike
traditional time clock punch cards which can be changed or
replaced if lost or compromised, fingerprints are unique,
permanent biometric identifiers1 associated with each employee.
This exposes Defendant's workforce to serious and irreversible
privacy risks. For example, if a fingerprint database is hacked,
breached, or otherwise exposed, employees have no means by which
to prevent identity theft and unauthorized tracking. BIPA
expressly obligates Defendant to obtain an executed, written
release from an individual, as a condition of employment, in order
to capture, collect and store an individual's biometric
identifiers, especially a fingerprint, and biometric information
derived from it. BIPA further obligates Defendant to inform its
employees in writing that a biometric identifier or biometric
information is being collected or stored; to tell its employees in
writing for how long it will store their biometric information and
any purposes for which biometric information is being captured,
collected, and used; and to make available a written policy
disclosing when it will permanently destroy such information.

INTERACTIVE BROKERS: "Batchelar" Class Action Dismissed
-------------------------------------------------------
Robert Scott Batchelar, Individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. Interactive Brokers, LLC,
Interactive Brokers Group, Inc. and Thomas A. Frank, Defendants,
Case No. 3:15-cv-01836 (D. Conn., September 28, 2017), is
dismissed in its entirety for failure to establish a breach of
contract and negligence.

Interactive is a federally-licensed securities and commodity
futures broker. Plaintiff, an online stock trader, alleges that
Defendants' online brokerage platform improperly liquidated
positions in Plaintiff's margin trading account when Plaintiff's
account failed to meet Defendants' margin requirement.

Ruling states that an error in the software, as claimed by the
Plaintiff, is insufficient to establish that any particular
software developer could have reasonably foreseen an injury to a
specific individual customer, thus dismissing any negligence
claims. [BN]

JOHNSON CONTROLS: Class Certification Sought in "Hostetler" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiffs in the lawsuit titled AMOS and DEBBIE HOSTETLER,
RITA CHAIREZ, BECKY NULL, and MARIA TOVAR on behalf of themselves,
and all others similarly situated v. JOHNSON CONTROLS, INC. and
TOCON HOLDINGS, LLC, Case No. 3:15-cv-00226-JD-MGG (N.D. Ind.),
seek to certify a proposed class defined as:

     All persons who have owned, rented, or occupied property
     within the Class Area [described in the memorandum of law]
     at any time between 1992 and May 30, 2014.

During JCI's decades-long operations at its facility in Goshen,
Indiana (the "Site"), it used and released chlorinated solvents
including trichloroethylene ("TCE") -- a carcinogenic and
mutagenic substance -- into the environment surrounding the Site,
the Plaintiffs state.  This has led to a plume of contamination
comprised of TCE and other chlorinated chemicals, that has
infiltrated the soils and groundwater beneath the Site and the
adjacent neighborhood, they allege.  They add that this
contamination has entered subsurface preferential pathways,
including sewer and utility lines, and has spread within the
Neighborhood beyond the confines of the soil and groundwater
plume.

Consistent with their complaint, the Plaintiffs seek certification
of a class of residents -- past and present -- of the neighborhood
in Goshen, Indiana, who have been exposed to the contamination
emanating from the Site, as liability-related issues.  They also
ask the Court to appoint them as Class Representatives, and to
appoint their attorneys as class counsel.

KITCHEN COLLECTION: Underpays Store Managers, Cunningham Claims

TROY CUNNINGHAM individually and on behalf of all others similarly

(E.D. Tex., October 26, 2017) seeks to recover overtime
compensation for those who have worked as Store Managers or in
comparable roles with different titles.

The Kitchen Collection operates more than 200 retail store
locations across the United States, including Pennsylvania,
Illinois, Ohio, Texas and Oregon.  From these store locations,
Defendant sells "bakeware, cookware, small appliances, marble and
ceramics, great gadgets for every kitchen task and the best of As
Seen on TV."

According to the complaint, The Kitchen Collection staffs its
stores leanly, and strictly manages hours worked by non-exempt
workers to avoid paying them overtime. To compensate for this
deliberate understaffing, it relies heavily on its salaried SMs to
perform the duties of non-exempt employees when there are not
enough hourly employees to do so.[BN]

MARC BERKOWITZ: Faces "Rizkallah" Suit over Wage Law Violations
---------------------------------------------------------------
JESSICA RIZKALLAH, on behalf of herself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. MARC BERKOWITZ, d/b/ a SUNSET GRILL,
SUNSET CANTINA, and PATRON'S MEXICAN KITCHEN AND WATERING HOLE,
the Defendant, Case No. 20173368H (Mass. Super. Ct., Oct. 18,
2017), seeks to recover all wages to which they are entitled of
unpaid wages, recovery of wages not paid in a timely manner, and
other damages resulting from Defendant's wage law violations of
Massachusetts Wage Act and the Massachusetts Minimum Wage Law.

The case is a class action brought on behalf of employees who have
worked for Defendant Marc Berkowitz at the three restaurants owned
and managed by him, Sunset Grill, Sunset Cantina, and Patron's
Mexican Kitchen and Watering Hole, and who have been subject to
unlawful practices. The Plaintiff alleges that the Defendant has
violated the Massachusetts wage laws in multiple ways. First,
Defendant has not paid employees in a timely manner and has paid
employees from bank accounts (including personal bank accounts)
with insufficient funds, resulting in late payment and sometimes
non-payment of wages. Second, Defendant has not paid for all hours
worked, including overtime hours, and has not paid overtime hours
at the proper rate. Third, Defendant's employees have improper
deductions made from their pay, including deductions relating to
depositing or cashing their paychecks. For tipped employees,
Defendant's failure to pay all wages owed in a timely manner has
resulted in invalidation of Defendant's entitlement to pay tipped
employees the sub-minimum wage tipped rate.[BN]

MDL 2797: "Havard" Suit vs. Wells Fargo Consolidated in C.D. Cal.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Dustin Havard, James Krolick,
Regina Gonzalez-Phillips, and Joe Buckingham, on behalf of
themselves and all others similarly situated, the Petitioners, v.
Wells Fargo & Company and Wells Fargo Bank N.A., doing business
as: Wells Fargo Dealer Services, Respondents, Case No. 3:17-cv-
04789, was transferred on Oct. 18, 2017 from the U.S. District
Court for the Northern District of California, to the U.S.
District Court for the Central District of California (Southern
Division - Santa Ana). The California Central District Court Clerk
assigned Case No. 8:17-cv-01818-AG-KES to the proceeding.

The Havard case is being consolidated with MDL 2797 in re: Wells
Fargo Auto Insurance Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation. The
MDL was created by Order of the United States Judicial Panel on
Multidistrict Litigation on October 18, 2017. All responding
parties agree that the actions share common factual questions
arising out of allegations that Wells Fargo and National General
engaged in a nationwide scheme to place unwanted and unnecessary
insurance on automobiles, and that defendants caused plaintiffs
and putative class members harm by charging them for this unneeded
insurance and, in some cases, reporting them to credit agencies
and repossessing their vehicles. Centralization will eliminate
duplicative discovery; prevent inconsistent pretrial rulings on
class certification and other issues; and conserve the resources
of the parties, their counsel, and the judiciary. In its October
18, 2017 Order, the MDL Panel found that these actions involve
common questions of fact, and that centralization in the Central
District of California will serve the convenience of the parties
and witnesses and promote the just and efficient conduct of this
litigation. The panel finds that centralization in the Central
District of California is appropriate. Eleven of the fourteen
pending related actions are located in California, and three of
those actions are pending before Judge Andrew J. Guilford -- an
experienced transferee judge who we are confident will steer this
litigation on a prudent course. Moreover, it is alleged that key
entities and individuals with direct responsibility for the
alleged conduct in this litigation are located in this district
and, therefore, relevant documents and witnesses may be located
there. Indeed, at oral argument, Wells Fargo represented that the
primary witnesses would be found in the Central District of
California. Presiding Judge in the MDL is Hon. Andrew J. Guilford.
The lead case is 8:17-ml-02797-AG-KES

Wells Fargo is an American international banking and financial
services holding company headquartered in San Francisco,
California, with "hubquarters" throughout the country.[BN]

MERCANTILE ADJUSTMENT: Class Certification Sought in "Nolet" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Loralie Nolet moves the Court to certify the class described in
the complaint of the lawsuit captioned LORALIE NOLET, Individually
and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. MERCANTILE
ADJUSTMENT BUREAU, LLC, Case No. 2:17-cv-01399-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.").

While the Seventh Circuit has held that the specific procedure
described in Campbell-Ewald cannot force the individual settlement
of a class representative's claims, the same decision cautions
that other methods may prevent a plaintiff from representing a
class, the Plaintiff tells the Court, citing Fulton Dental, LLC v.
Bisco, Inc., No. 16-3574, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 10839 *9-10 (7th
Cir. June 20, 2017).  The Plaintiff asserts that one defendant has
attempted a similar tactic by sending a certified check to the
proposed class representative. Bonin v. CBS Radio, Inc., No. 16-
cv-674-CNC (E.D. Wis.); see also 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).

The Plaintiff is obligated to move for class certification to
protect the interests of the putative class, the Plaintiff
contends.

As this Motion to Certify a class is a placeholder motion as
described in Damasco, the parties and the Court should not be
burdened with unnecessary paperwork and the resulting expense when
short motion to certify and stay should suffice until an amended
motion is filed, the Plaintiff contends.

MICHAEL DELLA VECCHIA: "Brown" Suit Seeks Overtime Pay under FLSA
-----------------------------------------------------------------
KENROY ANDRE BROWN, on behalf of himself, individually, and on
behalf of all others similarly-situated, the Plaintiff, v. MICHAEL
DELLA VECCHIA & SON INC., and ANTHONY DELLA VECCHIA, individually,
the Defendants, Case No. 1:17-cv-06094-WFK-JO (E.D.N.Y., Oct. 18,
2017), seeks to recover overtime pay under the Fair Labor
Standards Act and New York Labor Law.

According to the complaint, Plaintiff worked for Defendants -- a
Queens County corporation that provides construction and
renovation services and Plaintiff's direct supervisor who was the
business's day-to-day overseer -- as a laborer from September 8,
2015 through October 6, 2017. The Defendants willfully failed to
pay Plaintiff the wages lawfully due to him under the FLSA and the
NYLL. Specifically, for the entirety of his employment, Defendants
routinely required Plaintiff to work beyond forty hours in a
workweek, paid Plaintiff on an hourly basis for only his forty
hours worked per week, and thus failed to compensate Plaintiff at
the statutorily-required overtime rate for any hours that he
worked per week in excess of forty. Additionally, Defendants
failed to provide Plaintiff with proper wage statements on each
payday or with an accurate wage notice at the time of hire, as the
NYLL requires. The Defendants allegedly paid and treated all of
their laborers in this same manner.[BN]

MORNING CALL: "Hernandez" Suit Certified as FLSA Class Action
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Eldon E. Fallon entered an Order & Reasons in the
lawsuit styled HERNANDEZ v. MORNING CALL COFFEE STAND, INC., Case
No. 2:17-cv-02613-EEF-JVM (E.D. La.), granting the Plaintiff's
motion to conditionally certify a class pursuant to the Fair Labor
Standards Act.

Judge Fallon also approved the Plaintiff's proposed notice, and
directed the Defendant to provide the names and last known
addresses of potential class members.

Plaintiff Antonia Hernandez has filed the lawsuit as a putative
class action on behalf of herself and other similarly situated
parties to recover unpaid overtime wages. She asserts that, while
she was employed as a kitchen helper at Morning Call, she was not
paid one-and-a-half times her hourly wage for hours worked in
excess of 40 hours per week.

behalf of all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. Murphy Oil
USA, Inc., a Delaware Corporation, Defendant, Case No. 1:17-cv-

relief and damages and compensation for time worked, and/or
together with time and one-half pay for time worked over 40 hours
per week under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, Murphy Oil employed Plaintiff as a
cashier, trained to work on the gas pumps, performed maintenance,
prepared the store for opening, along with other duties. Employees
would be accused of being short on their registers and told to
work "off-the-clock" to make up the shortage or be fired. These
employees were never given proof of the shortage or given the
opportunity to dispute it, it adds.

NATIONWIDE CREDIT: Class Certification Sought in "Nolet" Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
Loralie Nolet moves the Court to certify the class described in
the complaint of the lawsuit entitled LORALIE NOLET, Individually
and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. NATIONWIDE
CREDIT, INC., Case No. 2:17-cv-01400-WED (E.D. Wisc.), and further
asks that the Court both stay the motion for class certification

OKLAHOMA: Class Certification Sought in "Simmons" Suit
------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff AllInOne Project moves for certification as a class
action of the lawsuit captioned GLYNN R. SIMMONS, et al. v. MARY
FALLIN, et al., Case No. 5:17-cv-00908-D (W.D. Okla.), under Rule
23(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and for appointment
of counsel.

Mary Fallin is the current Governor of Oklahoma.

AllInOne Project, who appears pro se, alleges that 1) prison
overcrowding and understaffing is not only inherently unsafe to
prisoners and prison staff, but that Oklahoma prisons are
extremely violent, uncontainable and, in the last year, there have
been hundreds of incidents of violence, death, and suicide, which
could have been prevented; and 2) Ms. Fallin's operation of the
Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board in an arbitrary and capricious
manner exacerbates the overcrowding problem.

There are approximately 27,000 prisoners impacted by the
overcrowding of Oklahoma prisons and unconstitutional operation of
the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board, the Plaintiff adds.

Defendant Joe Allbaugh, Director of the Oklahoma Department of
Corrections, in a series of news articles and most recently an
interview with PBS essentially confessed the facts alleged in the
complaint, AllInOne Project further contends.

ORBITAL ATK: "Simnowitz" Suit Seeks to Enjoin Northrop Merger
-------------------------------------------------------------
STEPHEN SIMNOWITZ, on Behalf of Himself and All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, v. ORBITAL ATK, INC., DAVID W. THOMPSON,
RONALD R. FOGLEMAN, KEVIN P. CHILTON, ROXANNE J. DECYK, LENNARD A.
FISK, RONALD T. KADISH, TIG H. KREKEL, DOUGLAS L. MAINE, ROMAN
MARTINEZ IV, JANICE I. OBUCHOWSKI, JAMES G. ROCHE, HARRISON H.
SCHMITT, and SCOTT L. WEBSTER, the Defendants, Case No. 1:17-cv-
01181-CMH-IDD (E.D. Va., Oct. 18, 2017), seeks to enjoin
stockholder vote on a Proposed Transaction unless and until such
Exchange Act violations are rectified.

On September 18, 2017, Orbital and Northrop Grumman issued a joint
press release that they had entered into an Agreement and Plan of
Merger, dated September 17, 2017 pursuant to which Northrop
Grumman will acquire Orbital. Under the terms of the Merger
Agreement, Orbital stockholders will have the right to receive
$134.50 in cash for each share of Company common stock they own.
The Proposed Transaction is valued at approximately $9.2 billion.

On October 2, 2017, Orbital filed a Preliminary Proxy Statement on
Schedule 14A with the SEC. The Proxy recommends that Orbital
stockholders vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction. However,
it omits or misrepresents material information concerning, among
other things: (a) Orbital management's projections, utilized by
Orbital's financial advisor, Citigroup Global Markets Inc.; (b)
the valuation analyses prepared by Citigroup regarding its
fairness opinion; and (c) Orbital insiders' potential conflicts of
interest.

The failure to adequately disclose such material information
constitutes a violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the
Exchange Act as Orbital stockholders need such material
information in order to cast a fully-informed vote or seek
appraisal in connection with the Proposed Transaction. Orbital's
public stockholders will be forced to make a voting or appraisal
decision on the Proposed Transaction without full disclosure of
all material information regarding the Proposed Transaction being
provided to them.

Orbital purports to be an aerospace and defense systems company
and supplier of related products to the U.S. government, allied
nations, and contractors. Orbital's main products include launch
vehicles and related propulsion systems; satellites and associated
components and services; composite aerospace structures; tactical
missiles, subsystems and defense electronics; and weapons,
armament systems and ammunition.[BN]

ORGANIC CONNECTION: Martinica Seeks Unpaid Wages under FLSA
-----------------------------------------------------------
ARACELY MARTINICA, and other similarly situated individuals,
Plaintiff, v. ORGANIC CONNECTION FOODS, INC. a Florida Profit
Corporation; AHMAD SH:EHADEH, individually; ABDELKARIM SHEHADEH,
individually; and MAHMOUD SHEHADEH, individually, the Defendants,
Case No. 63012327 (Circuit Court of The Eleventh Judicial Circuit
in and for Miami-Dade County, Fla., Oct. 18 , 2017), seeks to
recover damages exceeding $15,000 excluding attorneys' fees or
costs for unpaid wages under the Fair Labor Standards Act and the
Florida Minimum Wage Act.

According to the complaint, the Defendant failed to compensate
Plaintiff the required minimum wage and/or overtime at rate of one
and a half times Plaintiff's regular rate of pay for all hours

PROCTER & GAMBLE: Pettit Moves to Certify Class of Wipes Buyers
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiff in the lawsuit titled JAMIE PETTIT, an individual,
on behalf of herself, the general public and those similarly
situated v. THE PROCTER & GAMBLE COMPANY, Case No. 3:15-cv-02150-
RS (N.D. Cal.), asks the Court to certify this class:

     All persons who, between April 6, 2011 and the [date of
     class certification], purchased in California the Charmin
     Freshmates Flushable Wipes (excluding purchases for purpose
     of resale).

The Class will pursue claims under the Unfair Competition Law, the
California Legal Remedies Act, the California False Advertising
Law and for common law fraud, deceit and/or misrepresentation.

The case involves Procter & Gamble's alleged false and misleading
labeling of Charmin Freshmate wet wipes as "flushable" even though
they are not suitable for flushing.  Because the wipes are made of
thick, strong fibers, they do not disperse in the toilet (unlike
toilet paper) and, thus, greatly increase the risk of clogs in
household plumbing and municipal water treatment systems, the
Plaintiff contends.

Ms. Pettit also asks that the Court appoint (1) her as class
representative on all claims, and (2) Gutride Safier LLP; Tycko &
Zavareei LLP; and Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP as class
counsel.  She further asks the Court to order the parties to meet
and confer and present this Court, within 15 days of an order
granting class certification, a proposed notice to the certified
class.

RAMINENI LAW: Fails to Pay Overtime, "Datta" Suit Claims
--------------------------------------------------------
ARUNIMA DATTA, individually and on behalf of herself and others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. RAMINENI LAW ASSOCIATES AND
SININAS RAMINENI, the Defendants, Case No. 17-3161 (Mass. Super.
Ct., Oct. 30, 2017), seeks to recover unpaid wages and overtime
under Mass. Gen. Laws.

Ms. Datta had worked as a paralegal at Ramineni Law. When she
joined the firm, it asked her to sign an employment agreement. She
did so. The agreement provides that Ms. Datta would be paid over
time at one and one half times her hourly rate as to hours worked
beyond forty in a week. The firm, however, refused to pay her for
all hours worked. It would not pay any additional compensation
until after she worked 45 hours each week. Accordingly, she worked
five hours each week absent any pay from Ramineni Law. Ramineni
Law also required Ms. Datta to work additional hours of overtime.
She worked hundreds of hours of overtime during her tenure at the
company. The company issued records stating the hours worked. In
addition, Ms. Datta and all of the employees punched in and out
each day. Time records exist. Ramineni Law, however, paid Ms.
Datta "straight time" of $25 for each overtime hour worked. It did
not pay her $37.50 per our which had been the correct overtime
rate. Ramineni Law simply did not pay Ms. Datta overtime or for
all hours worked.

Ramineni Law is a Boston-based immigration law firm serving both
businesses and individuals throughout Massachusetts.[BN]

RAYMOND JAMES: Daccache Moves to Certify Class of Investors
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiffs in the lawsuit entitled ALEXANDRE DACCACHE, CARLOS
ENRIQUE HILLER SANCHEZ, PHILIP CALDERWOOD, JOSE ANTONIO PIETRI,
JOSE R. CASSERES-PINTO, TONGYI WANG, JOHANNES EIJMBERTS, and LORNE
MORRIS, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated
v. RAYMOND JAMES & ASSOCIATES, INC., PEOPLE'S UNITED FINANCIAL,
INC., as successor-in-interest to Chittenden Trust Company,
PEOPLE'S UNITED BANK, ARIEL QUIROS, WILLIAM STENGER, and JOEL
BURSTEIN, Case No. 1:16-cv-21575-FAM (S.D. Fla.), move to certify
a proposed class comprised of investors around the world,
including more than 40 of the United States.

The Plaintiffs' amended motion seeks to certify a class of 837
foreign investors, each of whom invested $500,000 in one of eight
Jay Peak Limited Partnerships through the federal EB-5 Immigrant
Investor Program and paid an "administrative fee" in connection
with that investment.  Although the sponsors of the Jay Peak
investments, Ariel Quiros and William Stenger, pitched each
Limited Partnership as a distinct set of development projects, the
offering documents provided to all investors were materially
identical and uniformly failed to disclose that the Jay Peak
investments were being operated as a Ponzi scheme, the Plaintiffs
contend.

Quiros diverted, commingled, and looted hundreds of millions of
dollars in investor funds with substantial assistance from
Stenger, Raymond James & Associates, Inc., and People's United
Bank and People's United Financial, Inc., the Plaintiffs allege.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Buffin Seeks to Certify Class of Arrestees
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiffs in the lawsuit captioned RIANA BUFFIN and CRYSTAL
PATTERSON, on behalf of themselves and others similarly situated
v. VICKI HENNESSY in her official capacity as the San Francisco
Sheriff, et al., Case No. 4:15-cv-04959-YGR (N.D. Cal.), ask the
Court to certify this class for the purpose of pursuing
declaratory and injunctive relief:

     all arrestees who are, or who will be, in the custody of
     the City and County of San Francisco because they cannot
     afford the bail set by San Francisco's fixed bail schedule
     and who are otherwise eligible for release.

The case is about San Francisco's wealth-based pretrial detention
scheme, which operates to jail some of San Francisco's poorest
residents solely because they cannot pay an arbitrary amount of
money, the Plaintiffs allege.  They tell the Court that the
Defendants jailed them because they could not afford to pay the
amount set by Defendants' fixed "bail schedule" to gain their
release.

On behalf of the many other arrestees subjected to the Defendants'
wealth-based post-arrest detention scheme, the Plaintiffs
challenge the use of an offense-based, arbitrary "bail schedule,"
which operates to detain the most impoverished arrestees.

The Court will commence a hearing on December 12, 2017, at 2:00
p.m., to consider the Motion.

SANTA BARBARA HOSPITALITY: Court OKs $8.5MM Deal in "Byrne" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Jesus G. Bernal entered an order in the lawsuit titled
Lauren Byrne v. Santa Barbara Hospitality Services, Inc., et al.,
Case No. 5:17-cv-00527-JGB-KK (C.D. Cal.), granting:

   (1) Plaintiffs Lauren Byrne, Jenneta L. Bracy, Bambie Bedford,
       and Jennifer Disla's unopposed motion for class
       certification and preliminary approval of settlement; and

   (2) Plaintiffs leave to file a second amended complaint.

In the Settlement Agreement, the Defendants continue to deny
liability for the claims alleged in the Complaint.  Nevertheless,
the Defendants agree to pay a total settlement amount of $8.5
million, of which $5.5 million shall constitute the gross cash
settlement amount and $3 million shall constitute the credit
benefit settlement amount.  Under no circumstances will the
Defendants be responsible for making payments in excess of the
gross cash settlement amount.  However, to the extent class
members elect to receive credit benefits in lieu of cash, that
election will not deplete the available credit benefit settlement
amount.

Class members will be paid for their dance days.  The payment for
each individual class member will be calculated by taking the net
monetary settlement amount and dividing it by the total number of
dance days worked by all potential class members.  Class members
need to submit a claim form to the settlement administrator before
the expiration of the claims period.  A Class member may elect to
receive a credit benefit of two times the cash payment for
redemption at her qualifying club in lieu of receiving the
determined cash payment amount that the class member would be
eligible for.

Additionally, $100,000 attributed to PAGA will be funded solely by
the California Settlement Class Clubs listed in Section 1.11.  Of
that $100,000, 75% of it will be paid to the Labor and
Workforce Development Agency ("LWDA") and 25% of it will revert to
the settlement fund.  In exchange, Plaintiffs from California,
Texas, Oregon, Florida, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, as well as the
FLSA Plaintiffs agree to forever release Defendants from claims
that arose or could arise from this litigation.

The Settlement Agreement also provides that class counsel shall

SCAFFOLDING SOLUTIONS: Epps and Sullivan File Wage-and-Hour Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
TONY EPPS and MATTHEW SULLIVAN, For themselves and on behalf of
all others similarly situated v SCAFFOLDING SOLUTIONS, LLC, Case
No. 2:17-cv-00562-RBS-DEM (E.D. Va., Oct. 26, 2017) seeks to
recover unpaid wages and damages under the Federal Fair Labor
Standards Act of 1938 as amended, 29 U.S.C Sec. 201, et seq
("FLSA"), and for breach of contract, and for other damages.

Scaffolding Solutions maintains eight branches total in Virginia,
North Carolina, South Carolina and Washington, D.C.  Defendant was
engaged in commerce and the production of goods for commerce
within the meaning of Sec. 3(s)(1) of the FLSA (29 U.S.C.) Sec.
203(s)(1).

The lawsuit alleges that Defendant violated the FLSA willfully
with respect to minimum wage and unpaid overtime during the
applicable time period. Plaintiffs are not only entitled to
minimum wage for their uncompensated hours, but under the oral
contract between the parties, they are entitled to their
respective hourly rates.  Defendant's refusal to pay Plaintiffs
compensation due and owing as per oral agreement between the
parties constitutes a material breach of the compensation
agreements resulting in substantial damages to the plaintiffs and
individuals who are similar situated.[BN]

SCANA CORP: "Norman" Hits Share Drop Price Due to Shelved Project
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Robert L. Norman, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. Scana Corporation, Kevin B.
Marsh, Jimmy E. Addison and Stephen A. Byrne, Defendants, Case No.
3:17-cv-02616 (D.S.C., September 27, 2017), seeks damages,
including interest, reasonable costs and attorneys' fees and such
other or further relief under the Securities and Exchange Act of
1934.

SCANA is an energy-based holding company whose principal
subsidiary, South Carolina Electric & Gas Company is a regulated
public utility engaged in the generation, transmission,
distribution and sale of electricity primarily in South Carolina.
Defendants artificially drove up the price of SCANA's stock by
omitting material information concerning the progress, cost and
completion schedule of the multi-billion dollar nuclear
construction project at V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in Fairfield
County, South Carolina, says the complaint. The Nuclear Project
was allegedly facing serious design, construction and cost
headwinds. Its lead contractor for the project, Westinghouse
Electric Company sought bankruptcy protection on March 29, 2017.
Defendants harbored grave concerns about Westinghouse's financial
viability to continue the construction of the project.

On July 31, 2017, SCANA publicly announced that it would abandon
construction of the nuclear project because of delays and cost
overruns. In response to these announcements, SCANA's stock price
fell approximately 5%, or $3.36 per share, to close at $63.79 per
share on August 4, 2017, after several days of unusually heavy
trading volume, thereby damaging investors including the
Plaintiff. [BN]

SHORE FUNDING: Cunningham's Bid for Class Certification Denied
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Arthur D. Spatt entered a memorandum of decision & order
in the lawsuit entitled CRAIG CUNNINGHAM, Individually and on
behalf of all others similarly situated v. SHORE FUNDING SOLUTIONS
INC., Case No. 2:17-cv-2080 (ADS)(AKT) (E.D.N.Y.), denying without
prejudice the Plaintiff's motion for class certification.

Craig Cunningham commenced the putative class action against the
Defendant alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection
Act of 1991.  The action is based on the Defendant's alleged use
of an automatic telephone dialing system to deliver text messages
to the Plaintiff's phone, without the prior express consent of the
Plaintiff.

Even if the Court were to accept the Plaintiff's argument that a
putative class action complaint can potentially be rendered moot
if the Defendant were to make an individual settlement offer, it
still does not require the Plaintiff to have an early, pre-
discovery class certification motion remain pending on the Court's
docket until the Plaintiff has adequate discovery to file a more
fully-developed motion, Judge Spatt opines.

As a result, the class allegations are equally preserved at this
point in the litigation, regardless whether the Court denies the
motion without prejudice or allows this motion to remain on the
docket until discovery is concluded, Judge Spatt says.  Therefore,
the Plaintiff's motion for class certification is denied without
prejudice to renewal following the conclusion of discovery.

SM ENERGY: Lirette Seeks to Certify Class of Workers Under FLSA
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiff in the lawsuit styled MICHAEL LIRETTE, individually
and On behalf of all those similarly situated v. SM ENERGY
COMPANY, Case No. 4:17-cv-02093 (S.D. Tex.), asks the Court to
conditionally certify and send Court-approved notice to these
putative class members:

     All current and former wellsite personnel who worked as
     independent contractors/consultants for SM Energy Company
     during the past 3 years who were paid a day-rate.

Michael Lirette worked for the Defendant, regularly working over
12 hours a day.  He alleges that SMEC compensated him for these
long hours on a day-rate basis, paying him a flat amount for all
hours worked in a day without payment of overtime even though day-
rate workers are entitled to overtime under the Fair Labor
Standards Act.  He argues that SMEC avoided paying him overtime by
improperly classifying him as an independent contractor.

----------------------------------------------------------------
The parties in the lawsuit captioned CHRISTINA MAYBERRY,
individually and on behalf of others similarly situated v. SSM
HEALTH BUSINESSES, Case No. 4:15-cv-01680-CDP (E.D. Mo.), jointly
move the Court for:

   (1) certification of FLSA collective action and for
       certification of Rule 23 class for settlement purposes;

   (2) preliminary approval of class action settlement agreement;
       and

   (3) approval of notice to the respective class members.

The Plaintiff filed the lawsuit against SSM alleging that she and
others similarly situated were employed by SSM as hourly-paid home
healthcare workers and performed "off the clock" work without
overtime pay pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act and the
Missouri Minimum Wage Law, and also without receiving proper
straight-time pay (also known as "gap time" pay) pursuant to
Missouri common law.

Solely for purposes of settlement, the parties stipulate to final
certification of the FLSA collective action, consisting of all
current and former Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) employed by
SSM at the St. Louis and/or St. Louis West facilities at any time
during the period of August 24, 2014, to the present.  Based on
information provided by SSM, the parties have stipulated that
Paragraph 68 of the Class Action Settlement Agreement includes a
list of all individuals covered by the FLSA collective action
claim.

Solely for purposes of settlement, the parties stipulate to the
certification of a class consisting of all current and former
Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) employed by SSM at the St. Louis
and/or St. Louis West facilities at any time during the period of
November 9, 2010 to the present.  The parties agree that this
proposed class is a proper and appropriate class under Rule 23 of
the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.  Based on information
provided by SSM, the parties have stipulated that Paragraph 68 of
the Class Action Settlement Agreement includes a list of all
individuals covered by the State Law claims.

The parties also ask the Court to appoint Ms. Mayberry as the
Class Representative and to appoint Russell C. Riggan, Esq., and
Samuel W. Moore, Esq., of Riggan Law Firm, LLC as Class Counsel.

According to the settlement, SSM shall bear all costs of class
notice and settlement administration, which shall not reduce the
Class recovery.  Settlement payments for the FLSA collective
action shall be issued to all persons, who file a timely opt-in
notice.  Settlement payments for the Rule 23 claims shall be
issued to all Class Members, who do not return a valid and timely
opt-out request and complete/submit a claim form.

SUBARU OF AMERICA: Salcedo Sues Over Defective Car Parts
--------------------------------------------------------
VICENTE SALCEDO, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated v SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. and SUBARU
Corporation, Case No. 1:17-cv-08173-JHR-AMD (D. N.J., October 12,

Subaru in Orange County, which charged him diagnostic fee, then
eventually for out-of-pocket repairs.

is a Japanese corporation located at Ebisu Subaru Building, 1-20-8
Ebisu, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 150-8554. Subaru Corporation is

equitable relief, including restitutionary disgorgement of all
profits accruing to Defendants because of their deceptive
practices and an order requiring Subaru to adequately disclose and
repair the defect.[BN]

TEXAS, USA: Court Refuses to Certify Students Class in LULAC Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robert Pitman denied without prejudice the Plaintiff's
motion for class certification and appointment of class counsel in
the lawsuit captioned LEAGUE OF UNITED LATIN AMERICAN CITIZENS v.
STATE OF TEXAS, et al., Case No. 5:15-cv-00219-RP (W.D. Tex.).

Plaintiff League of United Latin American Citizens brought suit
under the Equal Educational Opportunities Act, seeking declaratory
and injunctive relief.  LULAC seeks an order requiring that the
state of Texas; Michael Morath, in his official capacity as the
Commissioner of Education; and the Texas Education Agency,
effectively monitor, enforce, and supervise programs for English
language learner students in Texas public schools.  The Plaintiff
further seeks an order requiring that Defendants Southwest
Independent School District and North East Independent School
District effectively implement, monitor, and supervise locally
their language programs to ensure that ELL students receive
appropriate educational programs and equal educational
opportunities.

In its Motion, the Plaintiff sought to certify a class of "all
Latino English Language Learner students attending public
secondary schools in Texas" (the "Statewide Class") and a subclass
of "all Latino English Language Learner students attending public
secondary schools in [the] Southwest Independent School District"
(the "SWISD Subclass").

Despite holding that Plaintiff does not meet Rule 23's
requirements at this time, the Court takes notice that the
Plaintiff has been representing a statewide class of Mexican-
American students in related litigation since it intervened to
enforce the District Court's order in 1972.

The Hon. Richard Seeborg grants the Plaintiff's motion for class
certification filed in the lawsuit styled FAITH BAUTISTA v. VALERO
MARKETING AND SUPPLY COMPANY, Case No. 3:15-cv-05557-RS (N.D.

The class consists of "[a]ll consumers who, between December 3,
2011 and the final disposition of this action, purchased gasoline
with a debit card from a Valero-branded station in California that
sells gasoline for a 'cash' price and were charged more money per

debit card.  She alleges that Valero's deceptive and misleading
signage violates the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, California False
Advertising Law, and California Unfair Competition Law.
