CENTRAL FREIGHT: "Henry" Stays in California Court
--------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Eastern District of
California issued an Order denying Defendant's Motion to Transfer
Venue of the case captioned RICKEY HENRY, Plaintiff, v. CENTRAL
FREIGHT LINES, INC., Defendant, No. 2:16-cv-00280-JAM-EFB (E.D.
Cal.).

Plaintiff sues Defendant for violating several California
statutes, alleging Defendant illegally misclassified him, and
other truck drivers like him, as independent contractors.
Plaintiff brings different claims on behalf of himself, a
California Class, and a California Labor Sub-Class. On behalf of
himself and the California Class, Plaintiff sues Defendant for
unlawful, unfair, and deceptive business practices.

Defendant moves to transfer the case to the United States District
Court for the Western District of Texas.

The threshold issue is whether the forum-selection clause applies
to Plaintiff's claims. A court assessing a forum-selection
clause's scope applies federal law. The Ninth Circuit has held
courts should construe certain phrases differently. Courts should
construe terms such as arising under, arising hereunder, and
arising out of narrowly, meaning the forum-selection clause
encompasses only those disputes concerning the interpretation and
performance of the contract itself.

The parties dispute whether Plaintiff's claims fall within the
forum-selection clause. Defendant argues they do, contending (1)
the forum-selection clause contains no limiting language, so the
Court should broadly construe it; and (2) the claims inextricably
intertwine with interpreting the Agreement because it is
impossible to separate the misclassification issue from the
contract.

The forum-selection clause states that the "Agreement is to be
governed by the laws of the United States and of the State of
Texas, including the choice-of-law rules of Texas, and Defendant
and Plaintiff hereby consent to the jurisdiction of the state and
federal courts nearest to Waco, Texas."

The Ninth Circuit said as much in Hunt Wesson Foods, Inc. v.
Supreme Oil Co., a case also discussing a Section 1404(a) motion.
817 F.2d 75 (9th Cir. 1987). The forum-selection clause, there,
stated the courts of California, County of Orange, will have
jurisdiction over the parties in any action at law relating to the
subject matter of the interpretation of this contract. The Ninth
Circuit reasoned the provision's plain meaning said nothing about
the Orange County courts having exclusive jurisdiction that the
language's effect was merely that the parties consented to the
jurisdiction of the Orange County courts. So too here: The forum-
selection clause expressly provides the parties consent to the
jurisdiction" of the specified Texas courts.

The misclassification issue underlying the case further supports
the Court's decision. The gravamen of Plaintiff's complaint is
that Defendant willfully misclassified, him and other truck
drivers like him to unlawfully avoid compliance with all
applicable federal and state laws. Where, as here, a plaintiff
claims the defendant illegally classified him as an independent
contractor to deny statutory benefits, the proper analytical
exercise in resolving the action does not turn on the contract.
The Court finds that the forum-selection clause's plain language
warrants a narrow construction, which, when applied, renders the
clause inapplicable to Plaintiff's statutory claims, for the issue
is not whether the Agreement classifies Plaintiff as an
independent contractor, but whether Defendant illegally
misclassified him as such, which does not require contract
interpretation. Defendant's reliance on Robles and Perry does not
alter this Court's conclusion, for those cases are distinguishable
because the courts there broadly construed the forum-selection
clauses. To rule otherwise, here, would contravene the Ninth
Circuit's admonition in Narayan to beware of contractual schemes
designed to avoid the California Labor Code.  The forum-selection
clause does not apply to Plaintiff's statutory claims.

By relying solely on the forum-selection clause as grounds for
transfer and by not also analyzing the Section 1404(a) factors,
Defendant has failed to persuade the Court that this case should
be transferred to the federal court nearest to Waco, Texas.

EXPERT GROUP: Court Limits Reply to Doc Production Request
----------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Middle District of
Florida, Tampa Division, issued an Order granting in part and
denying in part Plaintiff's Motion to Compel Response to Request
for Production in the case captioned BERKLEY ASSURANCE COMPANY,
Plaintiff, v. EXPERT GROUP INTERNATIONAL INC., Defendant, Case No.
8:16-cv-3466-T-17JSS (M.D. Fla.).

Plaintiff issued Defendant a professional liability insurance
policy in February 2015 that Defendant renewed in February 2016.
In this action, Plaintiff seeks a declaration that the policy does
not cover Defendant's liability in the class action lawsuit filed
in November 2014 by an au pair, who was not sponsored by
Defendant, alleging that Defendant conspired with its co-
defendants to fix the wages for au pairs working in the United
States.

Courts maintain great discretion to regulate discovery. The court
has broad discretion to compel or deny discovery.

Plaintiff seeks to compel responses to its Requests for Production
and Interrogatory Requests.  Specifically, Request for Production
(RFP) 2, which seeks documents relating to potential insurance
coverage for the class action claims from February 2014 through
February 2016 is relevant to the crux of Plaintiff's Complaint.
Accordingly, the Court held that documents responsive to RFP 2
must be produced. To the extent Defendant asserts that Plaintiff's
request for analyses, descriptions, or evaluations of the
potential coverage provided by Colony Insurance Company seeks
documents protected by the attorney-client privilege or work
product doctrine, Defendant must assert as much in a privilege log
served on Plaintiff.  Therefore, the Motion is granted as RFP 2.

In RFP 3, Plaintiff seeks documents Defendant created or received
regarding the claims in the class action lawsuit for the period of
February 14, 2014 through February 14, 2015, the year before
Defendant's application for insurance from Plaintiff. While
relevant to Defendant's knowledge of the class action claims
before it applied for insurance coverage from Plaintiff, the
request for all documents is overly broad.  Accordingly, the
Motion is granted as to RFP 3 only as to its request for pre-suit
demands received by Defendant from February 14, 2014 through
February 14, 2015.

The Motion is denied as to RFP 4, requesting all applications for
insurance coverage from February 14, 2014 to the present, and RFP
6, requesting a copy of any joint defense agreement in the class
action lawsuit, because they seek irrelevant information and the
requests are not proportional to the needs of the case.

The Motion is denied as to RFP 5, which seeks all documents
exchanged among co-defendants in the class action lawsuit, as
overly broad.

The Motion is denied as to RFP 7 because the burden and expense of
the requested discovery, copies of all production and discovery
responses made by Defendant in the class action, outweighs any
likely benefit to the parties' presentation of their claims and
defenses in this case.

The Motion is granted in part as to RFP 8 as to Plaintiff's
request for a copy of the confidentiality order entered in the
class action lawsuit, but denied in all other respects as overly
broad.

Finally, the Motion is granted as to Interrogatory 2, which asks
Defendant to identify its legal counsel in the class action
lawsuit and related information such as the dates it retained
counsel and the subject matter of the engagement, because it seeks
relevant information and is not overly broad.

IMPERVA INC: Court Preliminarily Approves "Shankar" Settlement
--------------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Northern District of
California, Oakland Division, issued an Order granting Preliminary
Approval of Settlement and Providing for Notice in the case
captioned VISWANATH V. SHANKAR, Individually and on Behalf of All
Others Similarly Situated, Plaintiff, v. IMPERVA, INC., et al.,
Defendants, Case No. 4:14-cv-01680-PJH (N.D. Cal.).

The Court has reviewed the parties' Stipulation and hereby
preliminarily approve the settlement, subject to further
consideration at the Settlement Hearing.

The Court finds, for the purposes of the settlement only, that the
prerequisites for a class action under Rules 23(a) and (b)(3) of
the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure have been satisfied in that:
(a) the number of Class Members is so numerous that joinder of all
members is impracticable; (b) there are questions of law and fact
common to the Class; (c) the claims of the Lead Plaintiff are
typical of the claims of the Class it seeks to represent; (d) Lead
Plaintiff and Lead Counsel have and will fairly and adequately
represent the interests of the Class; (e) the questions of law and
fact common to the Members of the Class predominate over any
questions affecting only individual Class Members; and (f) a class
action is superior to other available methods for the fair and
efficient adjudication of the controversy.

Pursuant to Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and
for the purposes of the settlement only, Lead Plaintiff is
certified as the class representative.

A hearing (Settlement Hearing) shall be held before this Court in
2018, at 9:00 a.m., at a date at least 100 calendar days from the
date of the Order, to determine whether the proposed settlement of
the Litigation on the terms and conditions provided for in the
Stipulation is fair, reasonable, and adequate to the Class and
should be approved by the Court.

The Court approves, as to form and content, the Notice of Pendency
and Proposed Settlement of Class Action (Notice), the Proof of
Claim and Release form (Proof of Claim and Release), and the
Summary Notice, and finds that the mailing and distribution of the
Notice and publishing of the Summary Notice substantially in the
manner and form set forth in of this Order meet the requirements
of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23 and due process, and is the
best notice practicable under the circumstances and shall
constitute due and sufficient notice to all Persons entitled
thereto.

The firm of Gilardi & Co. LLC is appointed to supervise and
administer the notice procedure as well as the processing of
claims.

Not later than October 23, 2017, the Claims Administrator shall
commence mailing the Notice and Proof of Claim, substantially in
the forms annexed hereto, by First-Class Mail to all Class Members
who can be identified with reasonable effort, and to be posted on
its website at www.impervasecuritieslitigation.com

Not later than fourteen (14) calendar days after the Notice Date,
the Claims Administrator shall cause the Summary Notice to be
published once in the national edition of The Wall Street Journal
and once over a national newswire service.

At least seven (7) calendar days prior to the Settlement Hearing,
Lead Counsel will serve on Defendants' counsel and file with the
Court proof, by affidavit or declaration, of such mailing and
publishing.

Lead Plaintiff's counsel have not received any payment for their
services in conducting this Litigation on behalf of the Lead
Plaintiff and the Members of the Class, nor have they been paid
for their litigation expenses. If the settlement is approved by
the Court, Lead Plaintiff's counsel will apply to the Court for
attorneys' fees of 25% of the Settlement Amount and expenses not
to exceed $400,000, plus interest thereon, to be paid from the
Settlement Fund. If the amounts requested are approved by the
Court, the average cost per share of Imperva securities will be
$0.43. In addition, the Lead Plaintiff may seek up to $25,000 in
expenses incurred in representing the Class, to be paid from the
Settlement Fund.

Lead Plaintiff believes that the proposed settlement is a good
recovery and is in the best interests of the Class. Because of the
risks associated with continuing to litigate and proceeding to
trial, there was a danger that the Class would not have prevailed
on any of its claims, in which case the Class would receive
nothing.

through 100, inclusive, Case No. 2:17-cv-08380 (C.D. Cal.,
November 16, 2017), alleges that Jolt misclassified and continues
to misclassify its drivers as independent contractors, when under

KNIGHT TRANSPORTATION: Misclassifies Drivers, Stevenson Alleges
---------------------------------------------------------------
RONNIE STEVENSON, an individual, on behalf of himself, and on
behalf of all persons similarly situated v. KNIGHT TRANSPORTATION
INC., a Corporation; KNIGHT TRANSPORTATION INC. 401(K) PLAN;
ADMINISTRATIVE COMMITTEE OF THE KNIGHT TRANSPORTATION INC. 401(K)
PLAN; KNIGHT TRANSPORTATION INC. CAFETERIA PLAN; ADMINISTRATIVE
COMMITTEE OF THE KNIGHT TRANSPORTATION INC. CAFETERIA PLAN; and
DOES 1 through 100, inclusive, Case No. 5:17-cv-02337 (C.D. Cal.,
November 17, 2017), alleges that the Defendants misclassified
their truck drivers as independent contractors.

According to the complaint, as a result of misclassification and
improper characterization of its Truck Drivers as "independent
contractors," the Company fails to provide its Truck Drivers the
same retirement, health, and other benefits it provides to all its
other employees pursuant to several employee pension and welfare
benefit plans -- specifically, the Knight Transportation, Inc.
401(k) Plan and the Knight Transportation, Inc. Cafeteria Plan --
established under and governed by the Employee Retirement Income
Security Act.

headquartered in Phoenix.  The Plans are employee benefit plans
that are sponsored and administered by KTI.  The Administrative
Committees are additional administrative bodies, appointed by KTI
in its capacity as employer, plan sponsor and administrator of the
Plans.

MEDIC AMBULANCE: Bid to Remand "Silva" Denied
---------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Eastern District of
California issued an Order denying Plaintiff's Motion to Remand
the case captioned MEGHAN SILVA, et al., Plaintiffs, v. MEDIC
AMBULANCE SERVICE, INC., Defendant, No. 2:17-cv-00876-TLN-CKD
(E.D. Cal.).

The complaint alleges Defendant violated: (1) California Labor
Code Section 226.7 and Industrial Welfare Commission Wage Order
No. 4 by failing to provide its employees with adequate rest
breaks; (2) California Labor Code Section 226 by failing to
provide regular accurate itemized wage statements; and (3)
California Labor Code Sections 201-203 by failing to pay rest
break compensation to Plaintiff and class members who were not
given rest breaks.

28 U.S.C. Section 1441 permits the removal to federal court of any
civil action over which the district courts of the United States
have original jurisdiction. Removal is proper only if the court
could have exercised jurisdiction over the action had it
originally been filed in federal court.

Plaintiff argues that Defendant incorrectly based its removal to
federal court on the idea that the state law claims are fully pre-
empted by Section 301 because Plaintiff and the potential class
members work subject to a collective bargaining agreement ("CBA").

Section 301 pre-empts state law claims where a provision of a CBA
needs to be interpreted to resolve the claim.

Defendant cites to pages 1, 2, 4, 5, 13, 29, and 33 of the CBA
that covers, among other things, shifts, scheduling, employees'
duties, the scope and nature of the work, wages, hours of work,
meal periods, arbitration, etc. Resolution of Plaintiff's first
claim will substantially depend on an analysis of these provisions
in the CBA, such as whether or not interrupting for calls or
requests constitutes failure to provide rest periods.
Defendant has established its burden of showing that Section 301
pre-empts Plaintiff's state law claims and thus, federal question
jurisdiction exists. Accordingly, the Court has subject matter
jurisdiction over Plaintiff's claims and Plaintiff is not entitled
to remand this action to state court.

METROPOLITAN LIFE: "Slavin" Sues Over Illegal Deductions
--------------------------------------------------------
Gary Slavin, Denise Horsford and Nancy Esposito, individually, and
on behalf of all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v.
Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, Metlife, Inc., MSI Financial
Services, Inc., Metlife Group, Inc., Defendants, Case No.
656905/2017, (N.Y. Sup., November 14, 2017), seeks restitution and
reimbursements of all monies unlawfully deducted, charged back or
required to be paid from the wages of Plaintiffs, including
administrative fees, plus interest thereon, a constructive trust
upon the assets of the Defendants to the extent of the sums due to
Plaintiffs, accounting of all wages and all sums unlawfully
deducted, charged back or withheld from compensation due, an
accounting of all hours worked by Plaintiffs, pre-judgment
interest, reasonable attorneys' fees, litigation expenses and
costs of suit and awarding such other and further relief under New
York Labor laws.

Defendants jointly operate as MetLife, a major provider of life
insurance and other related financial services to the public.
MetLife marketed and serviced a variety of often complex and
sophisticated insurance, securities and other financial products
through a nationwide network of agency offices, including offices
throughout New York State. Plaintiffs were employed as Financial
Services Representatives/Registered Representatives in various
MetLife offices located in Brooklyn and Nassau County, New York.

Defendants were paid on a commission basis with no guaranteed
salary of any amount despite working over 40 hours per week. The
Company charged them for necessary work expenses, such as their
office space, office telephone service, computer support and
liability insurance. MetLife also charged back compensation
already paid whenever the Company suffered various types of
routine losses on business. They were also required to pay the
salary and benefit expenses of certain support staffs. [BN]

MIDLAND CREDIT: "Wiley" Hits Ambiguous Collection Letter
--------------------------------------------------------
Charlene Wiley, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Midland Credit Management, Inc. and
Midland Funding, LLC, Defendants, Case No. 17-cv-01922 (N.D. Ala.,
November 15, 2017), seeks actual and statutory damages, costs, and
reasonable attorneys' fees and such further relief under the Fair
Debt Collection Practices Act.

Midland Credit Management, Inc. and Midland Funding, LLC operate a
nationwide debt collection business and attempts to collect debts
from consumers in virtually every state.

On May 2, 2016, Defendants sent the Plaintiff a collection letter
seeking payment for the alleged debt to T-Mobile. The complaint
says the letter failed to state that Midland could not sue Wiley
to collect the debt, failed to state who would not make a credit
report about the debt, but instead implied that they had the
option to take those actions and that it was simply choosing not
to do so. Defendant could also not sue to collect the debt at
issue because it was time-barred by the statute of limitations in
the State of Alabama. [BN]

NATIONAL RESEARCH: "Gerson" Suit Seeks to Stop Power Grab by Hays
-----------------------------------------------------------------
JAMES D. GERSON, on behalf of himself and all other similarly
situated shareholders of NATIONAL RESEARCH CORPORATION, and
derivatively on behalf of Nominal Defendant NATIONAL RESEARCH
CORPORATION v. MICHAEL D. HAYS, MICHAEL AND KAREN HAYS
GRANDCHILDREN'S TRUST, DONALD M. BERWICK, JOANN M. MARTIN, BARBARA
J. MOWRY, JOHN N. NUNNELLY and NATIONAL RESEARCH CORPORATION,
Nominal Defendant, Case No. 4:17-cv-03152 (D. Neb., November 16,
2017), arises out of an alleged extreme and illicit power grab by
NRC's founder, CEO, and controlling shareholder Michael D. Hays.

Mr. Hays is causing NRC to spend more than $102 million that the
Company does not have to force a repurchase of NRC's "high-vote"
Class B stock so that he can have supermajority control of NRC,
the Plaintiff alleges.  The Plaintiff contends that the proposed
transaction, which he seeks to enjoin, (i) is illegal under the
Wisconsin Business Corporation Law; (ii) entrenches Hays by
increasing his combined voting power from 54% to 92%; (iii)
unfairly provides Hays and his family members other benefits not
shared by minority shareholders; (iv) harms NRC by requiring it to
increase its debt load by more than 40 times and deplete virtually
all of the Company's cash on hand; and (v) harms unaffiliated
holders of Class B stock, such as the Plaintiff, by compelling the
repurchase of their shares at an unfair price.

In late September 2017, the Company announced that its board of
directors had approved a proposed stock reclassification, under
which the Company would repurchase all of the outstanding shares
of Class B Stock -- other than the shares held by Hays -- for
$53.44 in cash.  Following the Repurchase, the Class B shares will
be delisted and no longer trade on a public exchange.  All
Class B shares not held by Hays will also be retired, and Hays
will become the only holder of the approximately 1.76 million
shares of Class B Stock that remain.

Michael D. Hays founded NRC in 1981 and has served as its CEO and
as a Board member continuously since that time.  Michael and Karen
Hays Grandchildren's Trust was established by Hays and his wife
for the benefit of their grandchildren.  The Hays Family Trust
holds approximately 28% of the outstanding shares of Class A Stock
and approximately 3.5% of the outstanding shares of Class B Stock.
The Individual Defendants are directors and officers of the
Company.

Nominal Defendant NRC is primarily engaged in the provision of
data analytics and consulting services in the health-care
industry.  The Company is incorporated in Wisconsin with its
principal offices located in Lincoln, Nebraska.[BN]

POLARIS INDUSTRIES: Court Dismisses Securities Fraud Class Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the District of Minnesota
issued an Order granting Defendant's Polaris Industries, Inc.'s
Motion to Dismiss the case captioned In re Polaris Industries,
Inc. Securities Litigation, No. 16-3108 (PAM/SER) (D. Minn.).

Plaintiffs in this putative class action are several individual
investors and one institutional investor, Lead Plaintiff City of
Atlanta Police Officers' Pension Fund.  Plaintiffs seek to
represent a class of investors who invested in the common stock of
Defendant Polaris Industries, Inc.  Plaintiffs claim that Polaris
made false and misleading public statements about defects in its
off-road vehicles (ORV).  Polaris recalled hundreds of thousands
of ORVs during the class period after well-publicized incidents in
which Polaris ORVs caught fire, resulting in more than one
fatality.

The Amended Complaint alleges that Defendants violated Sections
10(b) and 20, and Rule 10b-5, of the Securities and Exchange Act
of 1934. 15 U.S.C. Sections 78j(b), 78t(a); 17 C.F.R. Section
240.10b-5. Section 10(b) makes it unlawful to use or employ, in
connection with the purchase or sale of any security, any
manipulative or deceptive device or contrivance in contravention
of such rules and regulations as the Commission may prescribe.

Plaintiffs' overarching theory of the case is that Polaris rushed
its products through research, development, and manufacturing in
order to retain market share, overlooking manufacturing or design
defects in the pursuit of profits. Plaintiffs insist that the same
or similar problem plagued all Polaris vehicles, and thus that all
of the recalls and incidents arose out of the same defect.  But
Plaintiffs' own allegations are that the fire hazard resulted from
different mechanical or design issues in different ORV models. In
one model, a fuel pump might leak. In another, fuel tank vent
lines were faulty. In still another, the engine's heat shield was
ineffective, and so on. The fundamental differences in the
problems various ORVs faced during the class period makes
Plaintiffs' theory of a company-wide blindness to similar defects
implausible.

In order to proceed on claims brought under 10(b) and Rule 10b-5,
Plaintiffs are required to allege four elements:

   (1) misrepresentations or omissions of material fact or acts
that operated as fraud or deceit in violation of the rule;

   (2) causation, often analyzed in terms of materiality and
reliance;

   (3) scienter; and

   (4) economic harm caused by the fraudulent activity occurring
in connection with the purchase and sale of a security.

Defendants claim that Plaintiffs have failed to comply with the
Private Securities Litigation Reform Act ("PSLRA"), in several
ways. First, they contend that Plaintiffs' allegations regarding
the alleged misleading statements are insufficient. Second, they
assert that Plaintiffs have not sufficiently alleged scienter.
Finally, they contend that Plaintiffs' loss causation allegations
are insufficient.

Misrepresentations/Omissions

Plaintiffs' allegations regarding Polaris's alleged failure to
increase its warranty reserves are nonsensical. Plaintiffs contend
that that Polaris should have set aside more money earlier for
warranty repairs, and its failure to do so amounted to an
intentional cover-up of the fire issue. But if Polaris knew that
it would be forced to pay millions of dollars in warranty claims
that it did not account for in its warranty reserves, then its
officers are bad businesspeople, not fraudsters. Moreover, there
is no dispute that Polaris increased its warranty reserves during
the class period, thus establishing that the company was
attempting to account for recalls. Plaintiffs' claim on this point
fails.

Scienter

To plausibly allege scienter, Plaintiffs must set forth facts that
give a strong reason to believe that there was reckless or
intentional wrongdoing.  Scienter may be established by: (1) facts
demonstrating a conscious intent to deceive, manipulate, or
defraud; (2) allegations of severe recklessness; or (3)
allegations of opportunity or motive.

There is no indication that the defects in Polaris's ORVs were
either so widespread as to make imputing knowledge of the
seriousness of the defects appropriate, or so immediate and urgent
to warrant a recall without some investigation. Polaris issued six
recalls in the 18-month-long class period. Plaintiffs' allegations
do not establish that Defendants knew about the serious safety
issues and concealed that knowledge from investors. Thus, even if
Plaintiffs have alleged any actionable false and misleading
representations, they have failed to establish scienter and their
claims fail.

Causation

Having determined that Plaintiffs have failed to sufficiently
allege false or misleading representations and scienter, the Court
need not address Plaintiffs' allegations with respect to loss
causation.
