ROSLYN RUDDOCK, on behalf of herself and others similarly

practices, procedures, protocols, routines, and rules willfully
failing and refusing to pay them at the legally required minimum
wage and overtime rate for all hours worked.[BN]

ALLERGAN INC: Calif. School Files Antitrust Suit over Restasis
--------------------------------------------------------------
SELF-INSURED SCHOOLS OF CALIFORNIA, on behalf of itself and all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. ALLERGAN, INC., the
Defendant, Case No. 8:18-cv-00017-JLS-KES (C.D. Cal., Jan. 5,
2018), seeks damages on behalf of Plaintiff and proposed classes
of end-payors that purchased Restasis (TM) (cyclosporine
ophthalmic emulsion) indirectly from Defendant at supra-
competitive prices, as a result of Allergan's scheme to
unlawfully prolong its monopoly in the market for prescription
cyclosporine ophthalmic emulsion sales in the United States.

The Plaintiff and members of the End Payor Class have been
injured in their business and property by reason of Defendant's
alleged anticompetitive, unfair or deceptive acts. Their injury
consists of paying higher prices for Restasis than they would
have paid in the absence of these violations, and being denied
the opportunity to purchase the cheaper generic Restasis. These
injuries are of the type the state consumer protection and unfair
business practices statutes were designed to prevent and directly
result from Defendant's unlawful conduct.

care, neurosciences, medical dermatology, medical aesthetics,
breast enhancement, obesity intervention and urologics.[BN]

AMPLIFY SNACK: "Rubin" Suit Seeks to Enjoin Hershey Merger
----------------------------------------------------------
MICHAEL RUBIN, on Behalf of Himself and All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, v. AMPLIFY SNACK BRANDS, INC., THOMAS E.
ENNIS, JEFFREY S. BARBER, WILLIAM DAVID CHRIST II, BENEDICT
CLARKE, CHRIS ELSHAW, ANDREW S. FRIEDMAN, JOHN K. HALEY, DAWN E.
HUDSON, and PAMELA L. NETZKY, the Defendant, Case No. 1:18-cv-
00014 (W.D. Tex., Jan. 5, 2018), is a class action brought on
behalf of the public stockholders of Amplify Snack Brands, Inc.
against Amplify and its Board of Directors for their alleged
violations of Sections 14(d)(4), 14(e) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 on a proposed transaction,
pursuant to which Amplify will be acquired by The Hershey Company
through its wholly owned subsidiary Alphabet Merger Sub, Inc.

According to the complaint, on December 18, 2017, Amplify and
Hershey issued a joint press release announcing that they had
entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger to sell Amplify to
Hershey.  Hershey will acquire all outstanding shares of Amplify
for $12.00 in cash per share of Amplify's common stock.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Hershey, through Merger Sub,
commenced the Tender Offer on January 2, 2018. The Tender Offer
is scheduled to expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at
the end of January 30, 2018. The Proposed Transaction is valued
at approximately $1.6 billion.

On January 2, 2018, Amplify filed a Solicitation/Recommendation
Statement on Schedule 14D-9 with the SEC. The Recommendation
Statement, which recommends that Amplify stockholders tender
their shares in favor of the Proposed Transaction, omits or
misrepresents material information concerning, among other
things: (i) Amplify's financial projections, relied upon by
Amplify's financial advisor, Jefferies LLC in connection with
rendering its fairness opinion; (ii) the data and inputs
underlying the financial valuation analyses that support the
fairness opinion provided by Jefferies; and (iii) Company
insiders' potential conflicts of interest. The failure to
adequately disclose such material information constitutes a
violation of Sections 14(d), 14(e) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act
as Amplify stockholders need such information in order to make a
fully informed decision whether to tender their shares in support
of the Proposed Transaction or seek appraisal.

The lawsuit says the Proposed Transaction will unlawfully divest
Amplify's public stockholders of the Company's valuable assets
without fully disclosing all material information concerning the
Proposed Transaction to Company stockholders.

Amplify Snack develops, markets, and distributes better-for-you
snack products in North America and internationally. The company
provides ready-to-eat popcorn in various flavors.[BN]

APPLE INC: Abdulla et al Sue over Older Phones' Performance
-----------------------------------------------------------
ALA ABDULLA, LANCE A. RAPHAEL, SAM MANGANO, KIRK PEDELTY, and
RYAN GLAZE, the Plaintiffs, v. APPLE, INC., the Defendant, Case
No. 1:17-cv-09178 (N.D. Ill., Dec. 20, 2017), seeks to recover
damages as result of Defendant's purposefully slowing or
"throttling down" performance speeds of older iPhone models.

According to the complaint, Apple purposefully and knowingly
released operating system software updates to iPhone 5, iPhone 6
and certain iPhone 7 phones that slowed the performance speeds of
the central processing units ("CPUs") of these devices. Apple's
software updates purposefully slowed or "throttled down" the
performance speeds iPhone 5, iPhone 6, certain iPhone 7 phones
and as yet unknown versions of iPhones because operating system
software updates (at times "iOS updates") wreaked havoc on
batteries within these model devices.  Apple's iOS updates were
engineered to purposefully slowdown or "throttle down" the
performance speeds of the above devices which cause users of
these devices to experience significant slowdowns in device
performance.

Apple's iOS updates purposefully neglected to explain that the
slowdowns in older model device performance and resulting lost or
diminished operating performance could be remedied by replacing
the batteries of these devices.

Apple's iOS updates purposefully neglected to explain that its
purposeful throttling down of older model devices and resulting
lost or diminished operating performance could be remedied by
replacing the batteries of these devices.  Instead, Apple's
decision to purposefully slowdown or throttle down these devices
was undertaken to fraudulently induce consumers to purchase the
latest iPhone versions of the iPhone 7, as well as new phones
such as the iPhone 8 and iPhone X.[BN]

COMCAST SPECTACOR: Fails to Pay Minimum & OT Wages, Winston Says
----------------------------------------------------------------
DEANNA WINSTON and JAMILA WRIGHT, on behalf of themselves and all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. COMCAST SPECTACOR
HOLDING COMPANY, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company,
OVATIONS FOOD SERVICES, LLC, a Pennsylvania limited liability
company, OVATIONS FANFARE, LP, a California limited partnership,
d/b/a SPECTRA FOOD SERVICES & HOSPITALITY, and DOES 1 through 10,
inclusive, the Defendants, Case No. RG18-887584 (Cal. Super. Ct.,
Jan. 1, 2018), seeks to recover minimum wages and overtime wages
under the California Labor Code.

The Defendants are in the business of managing food services and
hospitality programs. Defendants have employed Plaintiffs and
Class Members as non-exempt Suite Administrators at Oakland-
Alameda County Coliseum in Oakland, California.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiffs and Class Members were
paid, or continue to be paid, on an hourly basis and were paid,
or continue to be paid, nondiscretionary bonuses. Plaintiffs and
Class Members regularly worked in excess of 8 hours a workday or
40 hours in a workweek. As such Plaintiffs and Class Members were
entitled to overtime wages at one-and-one-halftimes Plaintiffs'
and Class Members' regular rate of pay.

When Defendants paid Plaintiffs and Class Members overtime wages,
Defendants failed to include the nondiscretionary bonuses when
calculating Plaintiffs' and Class Members' regular rate of pay.
Therefore, Defendants paid Plaintiffs and Class Members overtime
wages that were lower than the amount required by law.[BN]

lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern
District of New York against Credit Suisse Group AG ("Credit
Suisse" or the "Company") (NYSE: CS) on behalf of investors who

Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements
and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Credit Suisse's risk
protocols and control systems were routinely disregarded (3) the
Company was accumulating billions of dollars of risky, highly
illiquid securities in violation of those risk protocols; and (5)
as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' statements about Credit
Suisse's business, operations, and risk controls were false and
misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

Gainey McKenna & Egleston disclosed that a class action lawsuit
has been filed against The Crypto Company ("Crypto Company" or
the "Company") (OTC:CRCW) in the United States District Court for
the Central District of California on behalf of a class
consisting of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired
Crypto Company securities on the open market from August 21, 2017
through December 18, 2017, inclusive (the "Class Period"),
seeking to recover compensable damages caused by Defendants'
violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

On December 19, 2017, the Securities and Exchange Commission
("SEC") temporarily suspended trading in the securities of the
Crypto Company until January 3, 2018 after shares had risen more
than 17,000% in less than three months.  The SEC stated there
were "concerns regarding the accuracy and adequacy of information
in the marketplace" about compensation paid for promotion of the
Company and statements in SEC filings about plans of company
insiders to sell their shares of Crypto Company's common stock.
The SEC also announced that questions have arisen concerning
potentially manipulative transactions in Crypto Company's stock
in November 2017.

According to the lawsuit, Defendants made materially false and/or
misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Crypto
Company unlawfully engaged in a scheme to promote and manipulate
the Company's stock; and (2) as a result, Crypto Company's public
statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant
times.  When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit
claims that investors suffered damages.

Investors who purchased or otherwise acquired shares during the
Class Period should contact the Firm prior to the February 20,
2018 lead plaintiff motion deadline.  A lead plaintiff is a

CUSTOM FAB: "Sanchez" Suit Seeks Minimum Wage & OT under FLSA
-------------------------------------------------------------
CESAR SANCHEZ, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. CUSTOM FAB GROUP CORP., NY MUNICIPAL
EQUIPMENT, INC., and KIRK LOMBARDI and YAND GIL, as individuals,
the Defendants, Case No. CV-17-7489 (E.D.N.Y., Dec. 26, 2018),
seeks compensatory damages and liquidated damages in an amount
exceeding $100,000.00, interest, attorneys' fees, and costs under
the New York Labor Law and Fair Labor Standards Act.

The Plaintiff was employed by Defendants from December 2011 until
November 2017. The Plaintiff's primary duties were as auto body
worker, fabricator, and laborer and performing other
miscellaneous duties.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff was paid by Defendants
approximately $1,500.00 per week. The Defendants willfully failed
to post notices of the minimum wage and overtime wage
requirements in a conspicuous place at the location of their
employment as required by both the NYLL and the FLSA. The
Defendants also willfully failed to keep accurate payroll records
as required by both NYLL and the FLSA.[BN]

DOLLAR THRIFTY: "Maor" Suit Seeks to Certify Class
--------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled Marshall Maor, on behalf of himself and
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. Dollar Thrifty
Automotive Group, Inc., (d/b/a/Dollar Rent A Car), Dollar Rent A
Car, Inc., and DTG Operations, Inc., the Defendants, Case No.
1:15-cv-22959-JEM (S.D. Fla.), the Plaintiff asks the Court to
certify a class of:

   "all persons and entities who rented a vehicle from Dollar,
   who took possession of the vehicle at a Dollar or Thrifty
   rental location in Florida, and who paid Dollar an
   administrative fee for electronic toll collection after August
   6, 2010."

The Plaintiff further asks the Court for his appointment as Class
Representative, and for the appointment of the Lawrence Law Firm,
Lite DePalma Greenberg, LLC, and Karon LLC as Co-Lead Counsel and
Aronovitz Law as Liaison Counsel.

The Complaint alleges that Dollar charges an "administrative fee"
to renters who incur an electronic toll charge but did not opt in
at the rental counter to Dollar's all-inclusive toll service.
Like the name itself communicates, Dollar tells renters that the
administrative fee is used "to cover the cost of processing" such
electronic toll charges. That is simply untrue. The Complaint
alleges, discovery confirms, and Dollar stated under oath that
the administrative fee it charges Class members significantly
exceeds the cost of processing toll charges they incur. From
August 6, 2010 through the present, charged Class members $15.00
or $25.00 per toll in "administrative fees" while Dollar
estimated the actual cost of processing Class members' underlying
toll charges was roughly $1.00 per toll Ex. 15 (Lyle Tr. 50:7-9).
Dollar's corporate designee admitted that the toll program was
designed to generate company profits.

EQUITY PRIME: "Kirk" Suit Seeks Minimum Wage & OT under FLSA
------------------------------------------------------------
GABRIEL KIRK, On Behalf of Himself and All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, v. EQUITY PRIME MORTGAGE LLC, the
Defendant, Case No. 1:17-cv-05282-CAP (N.D. Ga., Dec. 20, 2017),
seeks to recover minimum wage and/or overtime compensation under
the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff Kirk is a former
Mortgage Loan Originator for Defendant. He sold mortgages to
individual customers primarily over the telephone. The Defendant
treated him and other Mortgage Loan Originators as exempt
employees, and did not pay them minimum wage and/or overtime
compensation. In fact, Defendant failed to pay Plaintiff any
compensation for approximately his first three months of work.

The Defendant operates and/or operated retail mortgage branches
nationwide. This is a collective action brought by Individual and
Representative Plaintiff Gabriel Kirk on his own behalf and on
behalf of any proposed collective and any sub-collectives.

The Plaintiff and the putative collective members are or were
employed by Defendant as "mortgage loan originators," "mortgage
loan officers," "senior mortgage loan officers," "loan officers,"
and in other similar mortgage origination jobs, and who Defendant
misclassified such that they were denied minimum wage and/or
overtime compensation as required by federal and states wage and
hour laws. These employees are similarly situated under the Fair
Labor Standards Act.[BN]

EUROPEAN AMERICAN WASTE: Guerrero Seeks Overtime Compensation
-------------------------------------------------------------
HECTOR GUERRERO, individually and on behalf of all other persons
similarly situated who were employed by, EUROPEAN AMERICAN WASTE
SERVICES, INC. and/or other entities affiliated or controlled by
EUROPEAN AMERICAN WASTE SERVICES, INC., the Plaintiffs, v.
EUROPEAN AMERICAN WASTE SERVICES, INC., the Defendants, Case No.
609318/2017 (N.Y. Sup. Ct., Dec. 21, 2017), seeks to recover
unpaid wage rates and/or overtime compensation under the New York
Labor Law.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiffs performed various
types of building service work, including but not limited to
moving and storage related work in accordance with the Public
Works Contracts. The Defendants paid Plaintiffs less than the
prevailing rates of wages and supplements to which Plaintiffs
were entitled for all hours they worked upon the Public Works
Contracts.

While working for Defendants, the Plaintiffs and the members of
the putative class did not receive all earned overtime wages, at
the rate of one and one half times the regular rate of pay, for
the time in which they worked after the first 40 hours in any
given week, including time worked reporting to the company yard
at the beginning and end of each workday. The Defendants
constituted the "employers" of the Named Plaintiffs and others
similarly situated.

The Defendants violated New York Labor Law by failing to pay
Plaintiffs the agreed upon benefits and/or wage supplements owed
to them for the work they performed. The Defendants' failure to
pay the agreed upon wages, including for time spent reporting to
the year at the beginning and end of the workday, overtime
compensation, benefit and supplement rates was willful.[BN]

FULFILLMENT LAB: Malet-Jowett Sues over Spam Text Messages
----------------------------------------------------------
EMILY MALET-JOWETT, on behalf of herself and other persons
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. THE FULFILLMENT LAB, INC.,
the Defendant, Case No. 2:18-cv-00064 (E.D. La., Jan. 1, 2018),
seeks injunction requiring Defendant to cease all unlawful text
messaging activities, and an award of statutory damages to
Plaintiff and the Class for each such violation, together with
costs and reasonable attorneys' fees.

The Defendant is a company that provides services for the sale
and distribution of "knock-off" skin care products, nutritional
supplements, cosmetic products, and health care products. The
Defendant uses proprietary software to market, sell and deliver
products on behalf of their clients. In order to market its
clients' products, Defendant sends text message advertising calls
to thousands of consumers' cellular telephones nationwide.

According to the complaint, the Defendant initiates or takes
steps necessary to place such text message advertising calls
using an automated telephone dialing system and/or are so
involved in placing the calls as to be deemed to initiate them.
The Defendant does not obtain the requisite consent from such
consumers to make such text message advertising calls and
therefore violates the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

The Defendant also violates the TCPA by failing to clearly state
the legal name of the business that is responsible for initiating
such calls. Moreover, Defendant violates the TCPA by failing to
provide in every text message call sent an automated opt-out
mechanism for the called person to make a do-not-call request.
The TCPA was enacted to protect consumers from unsolicited and
unwanted calls, exactly like those alleged in this case.

The Defendant makes these text message calls despite the fact
that neither Plaintiff nor the other members of a putative Class
of consumers provide Defendant with their prior express consent
to receive such text messages.

By sending spam text messages, Defendant violates the privacy and
statutory rights of Plaintiff and the Class and cause them harm,
not only by subjecting them to the aggravation that necessarily
accompanies the receipt of unsolicited spam text message
advertisements, but also because consumers frequently have to pay
their wireless providers for the receipt of such unsolicited text
message calls.[BN]

FUTUREDONTICS INC: Fails to Pay Regular Wages, Olivares Says
------------------------------------------------------------
HENRY OLIVARES, individually, and on behalf of other members of
the general public similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v.
FUTUREDONTICS, INC., a California corporation; and DOES 1 through
100, inclusive, the Defendants, Case No. BC688742 (Cal. Super.
Ct., Jan. 1, 2018), seeks to recover earned regular and/or
overtime wages under the California Labor Code.

According to the complaint, Defendants employed Plaintiff and
other persons as hourly-paid or non-exempt employees within the
State of California, including the County of Los Angeles. The
Defendants, jointly and severally, employed Plaintiff as an
hourly-paid, nonexempt employee from July 2006 to December 2004,
in the State of California, County of Los Angeles.

The Defendants hired Plaintiff and the other class members and
classified them as hourly-paid or non-exempt employees, and
failed to compensate them for all hours worked and missed meal
periods and/or rest breaks. The Defendants had the authority to
hire and terminate Plaintiff and the other class members, to set
work rules and conditions governing Plaintiffs and the other
class members' employment, and to supervise their daily
employment activities. The Defendants exercised sufficient
authority over the terms and conditions of Plaintiffs and the
other class members' employment for them to be joint employers of
Plaintiff and the other class members.

The Defendants directly hired and paid wages and benefits to
Plaintiff and the other class members. The Defendants continue to
employ hourly-paid or non-exempt employees within the State of
California. The Plaintiff and the other class members worked over
eight hours in a day and/or 40 hours in a week during their
employment with Defendants.

The Plaintiff alleges that Defendants engaged in a pattern and
practice of wage abuse against their hourly-paid or non-exempt
employees within the State of California.[BN]

(M.D. Tenn.), the Parties ask the Court for an Order certifying

GARDEN FRESH: PWDs Can't Access Parking Lot, Green Says
-------------------------------------------------------
KEVIN GREEN, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. GARDEN FRESH RESTAURANTS LLC, the
Defendants, Case No. BC688794 (Cal. Super. Ct., Jan. 5, 2018),
seeks to recover statutory damages and reasonable attorneys' fees
for Defendant's violation of the anti-discrimination state
statutes of California, the Unruh Civil Rights Act, California
Disabled Persons Act, and California Civil Code.

According to complaint, on October 1, 2017, the Plaintiff
patronized the Souplantation located at 375 West Ventura Blvd.,
Camarillo, CA to purchase lunch and suffered discrimination as a
result of being denied full and equal access. Specifically, this
store denied the Plaintiff access to the parking lot and/or
restroom area. First, Plaintiff was deterred from parking in a
handicap accessible parking space because the parking lot did not
have an adequate number of handicap accessible parking spaces,
nor did the parking lot provide handicap accessible parking
signage with language below the symbol of accessibility stating
"minimum fine $250.00" in order to deter the use of handicap
spaces by non-handicapped persons.

As a result, Plaintiff was unable to park in a handicap
accessible parking space. Once inside the restaurant, Plaintiff
was denied equal access to the store's restroom. Initially,
Plaintiff was unable to access the restroom without assistance
because the restroom door was so heavy, the force required by him
to open the door made it impossible for him to wheel himself
inside, unassisted. Once inside the restroom, Plaintiff was
deterred from using the facilities because toilet stall door
hardware in the men's restroom is not handicap accessible, and
because the urinal rim height was so high so that a wheelchair-
bound person is not able to use it. Finally, prior to exiting the
restroom, Plaintiff was deterred from washing his hands because
the soap and paper towel dispensers were both mounted excessively
high and out of reach to a wheelchair-bound person, and because
the pipes under the lavatory are not covered and Plaintiff feared
burning his legs.[BN]

GENERAL CABLE: Stanfield Seeks to Enjoin Prysmian Merger
--------------------------------------------------------
PETER STANFIELD, Individually and on Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. GENERAL CABLE CORPORATION,
JOHN E. WELSH III, MICHAEL T. McDONNELL, SALLIE B. BAILEY, EDWARD
C. HALL, GREGORY E. LAWTON, CRAIG P. OMTVEDT, and PATRICK M.
PREVOST, the Defendants, Case No. 1:18-cv-00006-UNA (D. Del.,
Jan. 1, 2018), seeks to enjoin Defendants from holding
stockholders vote on a Proposed Merger and taking any steps to
consummate the Proposed Merger unless, and until, material
information is disclosed to General Cable shareholders
sufficiently in advance of the vote on the Proposed Merger or, in
the event the Proposed Merger is consummated, to recover damages
resulting from the Defendants' violations of the Exchange Act.

This action is brought as a class action by Plaintiff on behalf
of himself and the other public holders of the common stock of
General Cable Corporation for their violations of Sections 14(a)
and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange
Act"), 15 U.S.C. sections 78n(a), 78t(a), SEC Rule 14a-9, 17
C.F.R. 240.14a-9, and Regulation G, 17 C.F.R. section 244.100 in
connection with the proposed merger between General Cable and a
subsidiary of Prysmian S.p.A.

According to the complaint, on December 3, 2017, the Board caused
the Company to enter into an agreement and plan of merger,
pursuant to which the Company's shareholders stand to receive
$30.00 in cash for each share of General Cable stock they own for
a total value of approximately $3 billion.  On December 22, to
convince General Cable shareholders to vote in favor of the
Proposed Merger, the Board authorized the filing of a materially
incomplete and misleading preliminary proxy statement with the
Securities and Exchange Commission, in violation of Sections
14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act. The materially incomplete
and misleading Proxy independently violates both Regulation G (17
C.F.R. section 244.100) and SEC Rule 14a-9 (17 C.F.R. 240.14a-9),
each of which constitutes a violation of Section 14(a) and 20(a)
of the Exchange Act.

While touting the fairness of the Merger Consideration to the
Company's shareholders in the Proxy, Defendants have failed to
disclose certain material information that is necessary for
shareholders to properly assess the fairness of the Proposed
Merger, thereby violating SEC rules and regulations and rendering
certain statements in the Proxy materially incomplete and
misleading.

In particular, the Proxy contains materially incomplete and
misleading information concerning the financial forecasts for the
Company that were prepared by the Company and relied upon by the
Board in recommending the Company's shareholders vote in favor of
the Proposed Merger. The financial forecasts were also utilized
by General Cable's financial advisor, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC
("J.P. Morgan"), in conducting the valuation analyses in support
of its fairness opinion.

It is imperative that the material information that has been
omitted from the Proxy is disclosed prior to the forthcoming
stockholder vote to allow the Company's stockholders to make an
informed decision regarding the Proposed Merger. For these
reasons, and as set forth in detail herein, Plaintiff asserts
claims against Defendants for violations of Sections 14(a) and
20(a) of the Exchange Act, based on Defendants' violation of (i)
Regulation G (17 C.F.R. section 244.100) and (ii) Rule 14a-9 (17
C.F.R. 240.14a-9).[BN]

GENPACT SERVICES: Debt Collection Practices Illegal, Olender Says
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Dana Olender, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. Genpact Services LLC, the Defendant,
Case No. 2:18-cv-00093 (E.D.N.Y., Jan. 5, 2018), seeks to recover
damages for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

The Plaintiff brings this action individually and as a class
action on behalf of all persons similarly situated in the State
of New York from whom Defendant attempted to collect a consumer
debt by sending a collection letter which stated, "The total
account balance as of the date of this letter is shown above.
Your account balance may increase because of interest or other
charges, if so provided in your agreement with your creditor,"
without providing information sufficient to allow the least
sophisticated consumer to determine the actual amount of the debt
as required by the FDCPA, from one year before the date of this
Complaint to the present.

The Defendant regularly engages in debt collection. The Class
consists of more than 35 persons from whom Defendant attempted to
collect delinquent consumer debts by sending the collection
letter.

Genpact provides collections and business services, and
technology solutions in the United States. Its finance and
accounting services include procure to pay, accounts payable and
receivables, fixed assets accounting, record to report, audits

HILTON GRAND: "Glasser" Suit Seeks to Certify TCPA Class
--------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled MELANIE GLASSER, individually and on behalf
of all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. HILTON GRAND
VACATIONS COMPANY, LLC, the Defendant, Case No. 8:16-cv-00952-
JDW-AAS (M.D. Fla.), the Plaintiff moves the Court to certify a
class of:

   "all persons in the United States whose cellular telephone
   number Defendant called using the IMC system between October
   16, 2013 and April 2, 2014 where the IMC system recorded a
   result of either "Connected" or "Machine."

This case is about a massive telemarketing campaign where Grand
Vacations placed automated telemarketing calls to Plaintiff's
cellular telephone number in an effort to sell her timeshares for
which she has never expressed any interest, much less provided
express written consent as required by the TCPA.

Between October 16, 2013 and April 2, 2014, Defendant used the
same automatic telephone dialing system (the IMC System) to place
approximately 13,000,000 telemarketing calls to approximately
3,500,000 cellular telephone numbers that successfully connected
to the recipient's telephone, including thirteen such calls to
Plaintiff's cellular telephone number.

INOVALON HOLDINGS: Fromer Chiropractic Sues over Junk Fax
---------------------------------------------------------
The case, ERIC B. FROMER CHIROPRACTIC, INC., a California
corporation, individually and as the representative of a class of
similarly-situated persons, the Plaintiff, v. INOVALON HOLDINGS,
INC., INOVALON, INC., Delaware corporations, and INOVALON SME,
LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, the Defendants, Case
No. 8:17-cv-03801-GJH (D. Md., Dec. 26, 2017), challenges
Defendants' practice of sending unsolicited facsimiles. The
federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991, as amended by
the Junk Fax Prevention Act of 2005, and the regulations
promulgated under the Act, prohibit a person or entity from
faxing or having an agent fax advertisements without the
recipient's prior express invitation or permission. The JFPA
provides a private right of action and provides for injunctive
relief and statutory damages of $500 per violation.

According to the complaint, the Defendants have sent facsimile
transmissions of unsolicited advertisements to Plaintiff and the
Class in violation of the JFPA, including, but not limited to,
the facsimile transmission of an unsolicited advertisement on or
about November 14, 2017. The Fax describes the commercial
availability or quality of Defendants' products, goods and
services. The Defendants have sent, and continue to send,
unsolicited advertisements via facsimile transmission in
violation of the JFPA, including but not limited to those
advertisements sent to Plaintiff.

Unsolicited faxes damage their recipients. A junk fax recipient
loses the use of its fax machine, paper, and ink toner. An
unsolicited fax wastes the recipient's valuable time that would
have been spent on something else. A junk fax interrupts the
recipient's privacy. Unsolicited faxes prevent fax machines from
receiving authorized faxes, prevent their use for authorized
outgoing faxes, cause undue wear and tear on the recipients' fax
machines, and require additional labor to attempt to discern the
source and purpose of the unsolicited message.

INTEL CORP: Garcia Sues over Defective x86-64x CPUs
---------------------------------------------------
STEVEN P. GARCIA, and ANTHONY STACHOWIAK, individually and on
behalf of all others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v. INTEL
CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation, the Defendant, Case No.
5:18-cv-00046 (N.D. Cal., Jan. 3, 2018), seeks injunctive relief
and damages from Defendant's defective Intel core processor
("CPUs").

The Defendant Intel's x86-64x CPUs suffer from a security defect,
which causes the CPUs to be exposed to troubling security
vulnerabilities by allowing potential access to extremely secure
kernel data (the "Defect"). The only way to "patch' this
vulnerability requires extensive changes to the root levels of
the Operating System which will dramatically reduce performance
of the CPU. The Defect renders the Intel x86-64x CPUs unfit for
their intended use and purpose. The Defect exists in all Intel
x86-64x CPUs manufactured since at least 2008. The x86-64x CPU
is, and was, utilized in the majority of all desktop, laptop
computers, and servers in the United States.

To date, Defendant has been unable or unwilling to repair the
Defect or offer Plaintiffs and class members a non-defective
Intel CPU or reimbursement for the cost of such CPU and the
consequential damages arising from the purchase and use of such
CPUs. Indeed, there does not appear to be a true "fix" for the
Defect. The security "patch," while expected to cure the security
vulnerabilities, will dramatically degrade the CPU's performance.
Therefore, the only "fix" would be to exchange the defective x86-
64x processor with a device containing a processor not subject to
this security vulnerability. In essence, Intel x86-64x CPU owners
are left with the unappealing choice of either purchasing a new
processor or computer containing a CPU that does not contain the
Defect, or continuing to use a computer with massive security
vulnerabilities or one with significant performance degradation.
The CPUs Defendant manufactured and sold to Plaintiffs and Class
members were not merchantable and were not fit for the ordinary
and particular purposes for which such goods are used in that the
CPUs suffer from a critical security defect, requiring an OS-
level software patch that will degrade the performance of the
CPU.

Plaintiffs and class members suffered injury in fact and a loss
of money or property as a result of Defendant's conduct in
designing, manufacturing, distributing and selling defective
CPUs. Intel has failed to remedy this harm, and has earned and
continues to earn substantial profit from selling defective
CPUs.[BN]

JACKSON WELL: "Walker" Suit Seeks Overtime Pay under FLSA

DYLAN WALKER, Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, v. JACKSON WELL SERVICES, LLC, the
Defendant, Case No. 7:18-cv-00003 (W.D. Tex., Jan. 5, 2018),
seeks to recover overtime pay for hours worked under the Fair
Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, the Defendant required Plaintiff to
work more that 40 hours in a work week as a flowback operator.
The Plaintiff is a former employee of Defendant who performed
work related to oil and gas wells serviced by Defendant.

The Defendant misclassified Plaintiff as an independent
contractor and as such paid him a flat weekly rate for his
substantial regular and overtime hours. Defendant also
misclassifies other flowback operators and similar employees as
independent contractors across the country and likewise denied
them their proper overtime compensation.

The Defendant's conduct violates, which requires non-exempt
employees to be compensated for all hours in excess of forty in a
workweek at one and one-half times their regular rate.[BN]

MDL 2804: Sheet Metal Workers' Suit Consolidated in Ohio
--------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled Sheet Metal Workers Local No. 25
Health and Welfare Fund ON BEHALF OF ITSELF AND ALL OTHERS
SIMILARLY SITUATED, the Plaintiff, v. Purdue Pharma L.P.; Purdue
Pharma Inc.; The Purdue Frederick Company, Inc.; TEVA
Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc.; Johnson & Johnson Janssen
Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Ortho-Mcneil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc.
also known as: Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Janssen
Pharmaceutical Inc., also known as: Janssen Pharmaceuticals,
Inc.; Endo Health Solutions Inc.; Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc.;
Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; also known as: Actavis Inc.; Watson
Laboratories Inc.; Actavis LLC; Actavis Pharma, Inc.; formerly
known as: Watson Pharma, Inc.; and Cephalon Inc., the Defendants,
Case No. 2:17-cv-05079, was transferred from the U.S. District
Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, to the U.S.
District Court for the Northern District of Ohio (Cleveland) on
Jan. 4, 2018. The Northern District of Ohio Court Clerk assigned
Case No. 1:18-op-45002-DAP to the proceeding.

The Sheet Metal case is being consolidated with MDL 2804 in re:
National Prescription Opiate Litigation. The MDL was created by
Order of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict
Litigation on December 5, 2017. In its December 5, 2017 Order,
the MDL Panel says, "After considering the argument of counsel,
we find that the actions in this litigation involve common
questions of fact, and that centralization in the Northern
District of Ohio will serve the convenience of the parties and
witnesses and promote the just and efficient conduct of the
litigation.

Plaintiffs in the actions are cities, counties and states that
allege that: (1) manufacturers of prescription opioid medications
overstated the benefits and downplayed the risks of the use of
their opioids and aggressively marketed (directly and through key
opinion leaders) these drugs to physicians, and/or (2)
distributors failed to monitor, detect, investigate, refuse and
report suspicious orders of prescription opiates. All actions
involve common factual questions about, inter alia, the
manufacturing and distributor defendants' knowledge of and
conduct regarding the alleged diversion of these prescription
opiates, as well as the manufacturers' alleged improper marketing
of such drugs. Both manufacturers and distributors are under an
obligation under the Controlled Substances Act and similar state
laws to prevent diversion of opiates and other controlled
substances into illicit channels. Plaintiffs assert that
defendants have failed to adhere to those standards, which caused
the diversion of opiates into their communities. Plaintiffs
variously bring claims for violation of RICO statutes, consumer
protection laws, state analogues to the Controlled Substances
Act, as well as common law claims such as public nuisance,
negligence, negligent misrepresentation, fraud and unjust
enrichment."

Presiding Judges in the MDL is Hon. Judge Dan Aaron Polster. The
lead case is 1:17-md-02804-DAP.[BN]

      setting forth a final date in which the Consent Form must

      Order conditionally certifying a class and from the date
      that Defendant produces the required contact information;
      and

   j. granting further relief as the Court deems appropriate.

The Plaintiff alleges that the Defendant had a policy and
practice of failing to pay Plaintiff, and similarly situated
employees, overtime wages in violation of the FLSA and Missouri
law. Specifically, Defendant failed to pay its employees for time
spent participating in Defendant's In-Home Training Program.

MERRYMAN HOTEL: Johnson Sues over Unsafe & Unsanitary Rooms
-----------------------------------------------------------
DARLENE JOHNSON, individually and on behalf of all similarly
situated persons, and MERRYMAN HOTEL CORPORATION, the Plaintiff,
v., as Trustee for Trust No. 31160; and ROBERT T. BERRY, the
Defendants, Case No. 2018-CH-00014 (Circuit Ct. of Cook County,
Jan. 1, 2018), seeks to recover damages for unsafe & unsanitary
room apartment.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff was "disabled" as
defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act. As a result of
Plaintiff's disability, she is unable to work or be employed in
any capacity. The Defendants were aware of Plaintiffs disability.

The subject matter property was a single room occupancy ("SRO")
building commonly known and/or marketed as "Park Beach
Apartments" and/or the "Merryman Hotel." The Defendant in its
capacity as Trustee of Trust No. 31160, was the record legal
owner of the subject matter property.

About April 1, 2016, Plaintiff entered into an oral, month-to-
month lease with Defendants for Unit No. 322 at the subject
matter property.  Plaintiff moved into unit 322 on or about the
same day. The Plaintiff experienced all of these unsafe,
unsanitary, and uninhabitable conditions in her unit and the
common areas of the subject matter property. The Plaintiff
repeatedly complained to Defendants regarding these conditions.

On multiple occasions during her tenancy, Plaintiff verbally
informed Defendants about the existence of toxigenic mold in her
unit. On each occasion, several weeks elapsed before Defendants
dispatched anyone to respond to Defendants' complaint. On each
occasion, Defendants would dispatch a person to spray the mold
with an unknown chemical. Chemical took little or no action to
remediate or neutralize the mold. The Defendants never tested the
mold. Defendants never took any other steps to remediate or
remove the mold.[BN]

MONSANTO COMPANY: Llamas Sues over Sale of Herbicide Roundup
------------------------------------------------------------
MANUEL LLAMAS, the Plaintiff v. MONSANTO COMPANY, the Defendant,
Case No. 3:17-cv-07258-VC (E.D. Mo., Dec. 21, 2017), seeks
compensatory damages as a result of Plaintiff's use of, and
exposure to, Roundup which caused or was a substantial
contributing factor in causing Plaintiff to suffer from cancer,
specifically NHL, and Plaintiff suffered severe and personal
injuries which are permanent and lasting in nature, physical pain
and mental anguish, including diminished enjoyment of life.

The case is an action for damages suffered by Plaintiff as a
direct and proximate result of Defendant's negligent and wrongful
conduct in connection with the design, development, manufacture,
testing, packaging, promoting, marketing, advertising,
distribution, labeling, and/or sale of the herbicide Roundup
(TM), containing the active ingredient glyphosate.

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

Defendant did provide or communicate failed to contain adequate
warnings and precautions that would have enabled Plaintiff, and
similarly situated individuals, to utilize the product safely and
with adequate protection. Instead, Defendant disseminated
information that was inaccurate, false, and misleading and which

MU HEALTH: Settles Class-Action Lawsuit for $3.6-Mil.
-----------------------------------------------------
Ayla Ellison, writing for Becker's Hospital Review, reports that
Columbia-based University of Missouri Health Care has agreed to
pay $3.6 million to resolve a lawsuit filed by two employees
claiming the health system was "unjustly enriched" by the setup
of its timekeeping system, according to The Columbia Missourian.

MU Health Care pays time-and-a-half for every hour an employee
works beyond 40 hours per week. However, employees are not paid
for uninterrupted 30-minute meal breaks they take during eight-
hour shifts. According to the employees' lawsuit, which was filed
in May 2016, the health system would deduct the 30-minute breaks,
even if employees did not take the meal break or did not take the
full half-hour, according to the report.

Under an agreement reached Dec. 13, the two employees who filed
the lawsuit will receive $5,000 each. After attorneys' fees are
deducted, the rest of the $3.6 million settlement will be
distributed among more than 2,000 current and former employees
who are part of the class-action lawsuit.

"While MU Health Care believes that it has acted in accordance
with law regarding its payroll practices, the settlement prevents
further legal expenses and ends any uncertainty created by the
pending litigation," the health system said in a statement.

The preliminary settlement requires approval by the Boone County
(Mo.) District Court. [GN]

NUDGEE JUNIOR COLLEGE: Child Sex Abuse Class Action Looms
---------------------------------------------------------
Greg Stolz, writing for The Courier Mail, reports that a class
action against the Catholic Church over alleged shocking private
school abuse could be looming, with dozens of former students
from Nudgee Junior College coming forward.

The ex-students have contacted lawyers after The Sunday Mail
revealed that two Queensland brothers have launched a
multimillion-dollar claim for damages, for physical and sexual
abuse they allegedly suffered at the hands of teachers at the
Brisbane school in the 1970s.

Former Nudgee Junior College captain John O'Leary and his brother
Bill are seeking about $7 million in damages from the Christian
Brothers for their alleged mistreatment while they were boarders.

The Supreme Court claim alleges then-Nudgee Junior headmaster
Brother John Regan subjected the O'Learys to "terrifying"
physical and verbal attacks.

The siblings allege Regan beat them daily -- sometimes knocking
them unconscious -- kicked them, struck them hundreds of times
and lifted them off the ground by their ears.

John O'Leary, who was junior college captain and is now an
unemployed labourer living on a derelict boat in north
Queensland, alleges he lived "in a constant state of terror and
anxiety" as an 11-year-old and 12-year-old at the school.

The brothers allege the abuse left them with profound and long-
lasting psychological damage.

Lawyers said the case could be a landmark action, challenging the
State Government's failure to remove time limits for physical
abuse claims, as other states have done.

The O'Learys have hired high-profile Gold Coast law firm Nyst
Legal.

Their lawyer, Brendan Nyst, Esq. said dozens of ex-Nudgee Junior
students and some from other schools had come forward since The
Sunday Mail broke the story.

"Our office has been inundated with calls from former students,"
he said.

"We're currently assessing the information."

The State Government had removed the three-year time limit on
sexual abuse claims, in line with the recommendations of the
Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Sexual Abuse.

Mr Nyst said because Queensland did not to remove the time limits
for physical abuse, as other states did, the O'Learys would have
to convince the Supreme Court to allow their claim to proceed.

The O'Learys said they hoped the Catholic Church would not
exploit abuse-claim time-limit laws.

"After all these years I think they'll finally do the right
thing," John O'Leary said.

"Back then we were just kids. We had nowhere to run, nowhere to
hide, and no one to turn to." [GN]

PAUL J. HOOTEN: Debt Collections Practices Unlawful, Silber Says
----------------------------------------------------------------
Shlomo Silber, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. Paul J. Hooten & Associates, PLLC and
John Does l-25, the Defendants, Case No. 1:18-cv-00077 (E.D.N.Y.,
Jan. 5, 2018), seeks to recover damages and declaratory and
injunctive relief under the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act.

According to the complaint, on January 9, 2017, Defendant sent a
collection letter to Plaintiff. The subject line of the letter
states "RE: N. American Partners in Anesthesia, LLP v. Shlomo
Silber". The use of the "v." language strongly implies that
Defendant has commenced legal action and filed a lawsuit against
Plaintiff. The use of the "v." language is threatening and
coercive and is made with the intent of scaring Plaintiff into
making payment in order to quickly resolve what, falsely, appears
to be a lawsuit filed against him. Vague references to "N.
American Partners in Anesthesia, LLP v. Shlomo Silber", without
any additional identifying information, only serves the purpose
of misleading and deceiving the Plaintiff into believing that a
lawsuit has been filed against it, when in fact it has not. Such
vague references were made with the sole intent to deceive and
coerce a rushed payment from Plaintiff. As a result of
Defendant's deceptive, misleading and unfair debt collection
practices, Plaintiff has been damaged.[BN]

PHILIP MORRIS: Bragar Eagel Files Securities Class Action Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., announces that a class action
lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the
District of New Jersey on behalf of all persons or entities who
purchased or otherwise acquired Philip Morris International Inc.
(NYSE:PM) securities between July 26, 2016 and December 20, 2017
(the "Class Period"). Investors have until February 20, 2018 to
apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the
lawsuit.

The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period,
Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed
to disclose that there were irregularities in the clinical
experiments that underpin Philip Morris' FDA application for
approval of its iQOS smoking device. Consequently, Defendants'
statements about Philip Morris' business, operations, and
prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a
reasonable basis throughout the Class Period.

On December 20, 2017, Reuters reported that former Philip Morris
employees and contractors "detailed irregularities in the
clinical experiments that underpin Philip Morris International's
application to the FDA for approval of its iQOS smoking device."
The report further stated that Tamara Koval, who helped
coordinate clinical trials for the device, was "excluded from
meetings" after she "questioned the quality of some of the
researchers and sites contracted to carry out those experiments."

Following this news, Philip Morris shares fell $3.75 per share,
or nearly 3.5%, to close at $104.37 on December 20, 2017.

If you purchased or otherwise acquired Philip Morris securities
and suffered a loss, continue to hold shares purchased prior to
the Class Period, have information, would like to learn more
about these claims, or have any questions concerning this
announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these
matters, please contact Brandon Walker or Melissa Fortunato by

PRUDENTIAL RUBLOFF: Real Estate Agents to File Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------------
Dennis Rodkin, writing for Crain's Chicago Business, reports that
former agents for a Chicago real estate brokerage who claim some
of their commissions were withheld when they moved to other firms
may launch a class-action lawsuit, a Cook County Circuit Court
judge ruled Dec. 21.

The suit claims that Prudential Rubloff and three of its top
executives withheld what may amount to several million dollars in
commissions from agents who had home sales underway before
leaving the firm but that closed after their departure. The suit,
certified as a class action December 21 by chancery division
Judge Moshe Jacobius, alleges that the firm and its executives
had improperly subtracted a 35 percent "termination fee" from
these agents' commissions. (Read the order below.)

The fee "was never spelled out in the agents' contracts," said
Aaron Stanton, Esq. -- astanton@burkelaw.com -- an attorney at
Burke Warren Mackay & Serritella in Chicago who is representing
the agents. He said the contracts included a "referral fee" that
would go to a Prudential agent who finished up the deals, but
that "nobody was ever referred." Thus the agents did not expect
to have part of their commission withheld.

Stanton said the class-action suit may represent as many as 270
agents, although only now, with the judge's certification that it
is a class action, can that group be developed.

The attorney for the defendants, Richard Ferna, Esq. of Fuchs &
Roselli in Chicago, did not respond to a request for comment. The
defendants include the real estate agency and executives Michael
Pierson, Chris Eigel and Nancy Nagy.

In 2013, Prudential Rubloff was bought by Berkshire Hathaway's
HomeServices of America. The present firm, Berkshire Hathaway
HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group, is not named in the
suit. The three named defendants are all executives of the
present agency. Nagy is CEO, Pierson is president and Eigel is
chairman emeritus.

"This matter is more than three years old and concerns operations
of a previous business entity that was acquired by HomeServices
of America," Suzanne Boose, Berkshire's chief communications
officer, wrote in an email. "Our company has not been found to
have done anything wrong. We are confident in our company's
business procedures and practices."

Stanton said the practice of withholding commissions began in
about 2010. The current ownership "made changes to the policy,"
he said.

Other Chicago real estate brokerages, including @properties,
Baird & Warner and Coldwell Banker, include termination fees in
their contracts, Stanton said, but Prudential Rubloff included
its version, a referral fee, in a policy manual. Because it
wasn't mentioned in the contract, he said, "withholding the
commissions is a breach of contract." [GN]


PURDUE PHARMA: MSP Recovery Suit Sues over Opioid Prescriptions
---------------------------------------------------------------

MALLINCKRODT LLC; MCKESSON CORPORATION; CARDINAL HEALTH INC.;
AMERISOURCEBERGEN DRUG CORPORATION; ABBOTT LABORATORIES, INC.;
RUSSELL PORTENOY; PERRY FINE; SCOTT FISHMAN; and LYNN WEBSTER,
the Defendants, Case No. 1:18-cv-00040 (N.D. Ohio, Jan. 5, 2018),
alleges that the Plaintiff's assignors and Class Members have
incurred and continue to incur costs for opioid prescriptions in
excess of those they would have otherwise incurred, payments for
their Medicaid beneficiaries' treatment for opioid addiction, and
payments for emergency hospital visits for their Medicaid
beneficiaries, including payments for Naloxone Hydrochloride
(Narcan) resulting from opioid abuse and overdose. Defendants'
misrepresentations regarding the safety and efficacy of long-term
opioid use proximately caused injury to the Plaintiff's assignors
and Class Members.

Opioids provide effective treatment for short-term post-surgical
and trauma-related pain, and for palliative end-of-life care.
They are approved by the FDA for use in the management of
moderate to severe pain where use of an opioid analgesic is
appropriate for more than a few days. Opioid analgesics, however,
are widely diverted and improperly used, and the widespread abuse
of opioids has resulted in the national epidemic of opioid
overdose deaths and addictions. The opioid epidemic is "directly
related to the increasingly widespread misuse of powerful opioid
pain medications."

The Defendants knew that controlled studies of the safety and
efficacy of opioids were limited to short-term use (i.e., not
longer than 90 days) in managed settings (e.g., hospitals) where
the risk of addiction and other adverse outcomes was
significantly minimized. Indeed, the FDA has expressly recognized
that there have been no long-term studies demonstrating the
safety and efficacy of opioids for long-term use. The Defendants
knew, and have known for years, that opioids were addictive and
subject to abuse, particularly when used long-term for chronic
non-cancer pain, and should not be used except as a last resort.
Defendants also knew that, with prolonged use, the effectiveness
of opioids wanes, requiring increases in doses to achieve pain
relief and markedly increasing the risk of significant side
effects and addiction.11

Despite the foregoing knowledge, in order to expand the market
for opioids and realize blockbuster profits, Defendants sought to
create a false perception of the safety and efficacy of opioids
in the minds of medical professionals and members of the public
that would encourage the use of opioids for longer periods of
time and to treat a wider range of problems, including such
common aches and pains as lower back pain, arthritis, and
headaches.

Defendants accomplished that false perception through a
coordinated, sophisticated, and highly deceptive marketing
campaign that began in the late 1990s, became more aggressive in
or about 2006, and continues to the present. Defendants engaged
in a practice and pattern of gross negligence and reckless
disregard for the health and safety of consumers using
prescription opioids by flooding the pharmaceutical market with
dramatic increases in prescription thresholds without
justification. The Defendants, individually and collectively,
provided millions of opioid prescription drugs to countless
pharmacies nationwide, without accountability and despite the
Defendants' knowledge of suspicious orders.

SOUTH AFRICA: More Students Come Forward in Class Suit vs DHET
--------------------------------------------------------------
Olebogeng Motse, writing for OFM News, reports that at least
seven more students from central South Africa will be a part of a
class action lawsuit to be launched against the Department of
Higher Education and Training (DHET).

This comes after the Department failed to issue students at
Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges
around the country with their certificates upon completing their
courses, with some waiting years for the certificates.

The Pretoria-based firm, Maluleke, Seriti, Makume and Matlala
Incorporated (MSMMINC), has taken the case up. Attorney at
MSMMINC, Mmuso Matlala, says the firm will be representing these
students pro bono. Matlala says around 50 students have come
forward so far. The 29-year-old Nomuneliso Matomane from Virgina
in the Free State is one of the students that have come forward.
Matomane says she heard about the class action lawsuit from her
friend, who saw it on the social media network, Facebook.
Matomane started studying Human Resource Management at Motheo
TVET college located in Bloemfontein in 2011. Around 2015, she
completed her practicals, qualifying for her National Diploma in
the field. To date, she has not received her certificate.
Matomane wanted to go to the Central University of Technology
(CUT) to study further, but she can't. She says it is difficult
for her to apply for jobs because she doesn't have the
certificate.

Matlala says most, if not all the students that have come forward
have been devastated by the backlog of certificates because they
are the only hope of their families financially. This is the case
for Matomane, who lives with her unemployed parents in Virginia.
She says "I am hoping that at least by February, I should have my
Diploma certificate, I'll be so happy. I will be able to go to
Central University of Technology to do my Bachelor of Technology
(BTech)".

Keneilwe Molawa from Thaba Nchu in the Free State, on the other
hand, has been waiting six years for her Civil Engineering and
Building Construction certificate from Motheo College. It was her
steely determination and perseverance that led to the Pretoria-
based law firm to take up the case. Molawa wrote multiple letters
to the Department of Higher Education and Training over the years
in a bid to receive her certificate. She tells OFM News that she
even wrote to the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC)
for assistance. The SAHRC referred her case to the Public
Protector to investigate. Despite all her efforts, she is still
not in possession of her certificate.

DHET in November informed parliament's Portfolio Committee on
Higher Education and Training that the department had cleared the
backlog of certificates that date as far back as 2007. According
to the statement released by the portfolio committee, as of
September 2017, 236 982 certificates had been processed and
released. 659 certificates would be issued after outstanding fees
owed by "beneficiaries were paid to Umalusi Quality Council for
General and Further Education and Training". [GN]

TECHNOLOGICAL MEDICAL: Court Denies Certification of Class
----------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled Jennifer Botelho, the Plaintiff, v.
Technological Medical Advancements LLC, the Defendant, Case No.
2:16-cv-08085-SVW-MRW (C.D. Cal.), the Hon. Judge Stephen V.
Wilson entered an order denying Plaintiff's motion for class
certification of:

   "all persons in the United States who, (1) from October 31,
   2012 through the present, (2) were sent an unsolicited
   telephone facsimile message from Defendant substantially
   similar to the faxes sent to Plaintiff, (3) where Defendant
   acquired the faxes were sent using the same equipment that was
   used to transmit the faxes to Plaintiff."

The Complaint alleges that Defendant violated the TCPA by sending
unsolicited fax advertisement about its Diowave laser to medical
professionals.

The Court finds that Plaintiff cannot establish predominance
because individual issues regarding prior express permission
predominate over any common issues of fact, including the common
issues provided by the Plaintiff.

TFC MANUFACTURING: Cambero Sues over Unpaid Meals & Rest Breaks
---------------------------------------------------------------
JOSE CAMBERO, individually, on behalf of all others similarly

the Plaintiff, v. TFC MANUFACTURING, INC. a California
corporation; and DOES 1 through 250, inclusive, the Defendant,
Case No. BC689221 (Cal. Super. Ct., Jan. 5, 2018), seeks to
recover unpaid meal period premiums, rest break premiums, wages
not timely paid upon termination under the California Labor Code.

TFC manufactures aircraft parts for the military and large
commercial companies. The Plaintiff alleges that Defendants were
advised by skilled lawyers and other professionals, employees and
advisors knowledgeable about California labor and wage law,
employment and personnel practices, and about the requirements of
California law.

The Defendant failed to provide all meal periods and rest breaks
or provided untimely meal periods and rest breaks. The Plaintiff
began work at 6 a.m. and worked generally 10 hours or more, which
was the same for other Class member. When he began working for
TFC, the only rest break authorized and permitted for Plaintiff
and Class members was from 9:20 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. Yet Plaintiff
and Aggrieved Employees were entitled to at least two rest breaks
based on the hours worked, which cannot be combined.

Additionally, the only time meal periods were authorized and
permitted was from 1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. However, this is not
within the first 5 hours as required. Additionally, no second
meal periods was provided for Plaintiff and Class members when
he/she worked over 10 hours.[BN]

TOTAL CARD: Debt Collection Practices Unlawful, Gribben Says
------------------------------------------------------------
Laura Gribben, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. Total Card, Inc., a South Dakota
corporation, Cavalry SPV I, LLC, a Delaware limited liability
company, and Cavalry Portfolio Services, LLC, a Delaware limited
liability company, the Defendant, Case No. 1:18-cv-00014-JMS-TAB
(S.D. Ind., Jan. 3, 2018), seeks to recover damages under the
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

According to the complaint, more than 6 years ago, Ms. Gribben
fell behind on paying her bills, including a debt she allegedly
owed for an HSBC Bank Nevada/Orchard Bank credit card account.
Sometime after that debt went into default, it was allegedly
acquired by Cavalry, who, with its sister company CPS, tried to
collect upon it by having Defendant TCI send her a form
collection letter, dated January 17, 2017.

This letter repeatedly urged her to pay the debt -- which it
referred to as a "financial obligation" -- via various settlement
options that would "save" Ms. Gribben money and would result in
"a full and final resolution" of the account.

Defendants' failure to adequately disclose that none of the
Defendants could sue is material. Moreover, collection agencies
like TCI and CPS can, and do, file collection lawsuits for their
clients. Thus, the lack of a proper disclosure would leave the
consumer without enough information to make a decision as to what
to do about the collection of the debt at issue and cause them to
believe Defendants, that the debt needed to be settled or
resolved in some way and/or would result in the alleged
savings.[BN]

UNITED STATES: Utah County Sues over Payments in Lieu of Taxes
--------------------------------------------------------------
KANE COUNTY, UTAH, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v. THE UNITED STATES, the
Defendant, Case No. 1:17-cv-01991-EDK (Fed. Cl., Dec. 20, 2017),
seeks to recover portion of the amounts to which Plaintiffs were
entitled for FY 2017 under the Payments in Lieu of Taxes Act,
that was not paid them due to Congress' under-appropriation of
funds for that fiscal year.

Kane County is a "unit of general local government" in which
"entitlement land" is located, as these terms are defined in 31
U.S.C. section 6901. On October 20, 1976, Congress enacted P.L.
94-565, commonly known as the Payment in Lieu of Taxes Act (PILT
or the "statute"). PILT was originally codified at 31 U.S.C.
section 1601, et seq.  Pursuant to P.L. 97-258, on September 13,
1982, the statute was re-codified "without substantive change" at
31 U.S.C. sections 6901, et seq.  31 U.S.C. section 6902 provides
that: "the Secretary of the Interior shall make a payment for
each fiscal year to each unit of general local government in
which entitlement land is located as set forth in this chapter."

The complaint notes that, as the Supreme Court found in Lawrence
County v. Lead-Deadwood School District, No. 40-1, 469 U.S. 256,
258 (1984), the purpose of the statute was to compensate local
governments for the loss of tax revenues resulting from the tax-
immune status of federal lands located in their jurisdictions and
for the cost of providing services related to these lands.  As
the Court also noted, the Federal Government had, for many years
prior to the enactment of PILT, been providing payments to
partially compensate state and local governments for revenues
lost as a result of the presence of tax-exempt federal lands
within their borders, but Congress and others had identified a
number of flaws in the existing programs. Prominent among
congressional concerns was that, under systems of direct payment
to the States, local governments often received funds that were
insufficient to cover the full cost of maintaining the federal
lands within their jurisdictions.

Kane County is a county located in the U.S. state of Utah. As of
the 2010 census, the population was 7,125. Its county seat and
largest city is Kanab. The county was named for Col. Thomas L.
Kane, a friend of the Mormon settlers.[BN]

VOLKSWAGEN CANADA: Class-Action Settlement in Diesel Scandal
------------------------------------------------------------
Greg Layson, writing for Automotive News, reports that Volkswagen
Canada says it reached a class-action settlement in principal
with about 20,000 owners and lessees of 3.0-liter diesel vehicles
that were equipped with software that allowed them to spew more
than the legal limit of emissions into the air.

The settlement includes cash payments -- the amounts haven't yet
been disclosed -- for owners and lessees of VW, Audi and Porsche
3.0-liter diesel vehicles from the model years 2013-2016.

This is the latest North American legal shoe to drop in the
global VW diesel emissions scandal that emerged in September
2015. The scandal now stands to cost VW about $30 billion in
legal settlements, reimbursements, fines and buybacks.

In Canada, owners and lessees of VW and Audi Generation One 3.0-
liter vehicles from 2009-2012 model years will receive
undisclosed cash payments as well as additional options that
include buyback, trade-in, early lease termination or a
modification to reduce emissions, if such modification is
approved by U.S. regulators.

Even those people who no longer own or lease a Generation One or
Generation Two 3.0-liter diesel vehicle are eligible for cash
payment.

The automaker and lawyers are working to finalize a proposed
settlement agreement that will be submitted for their pre-
approval in courts in Ontario and Quebec.

"Owners and lessees of the affected vehicles wishing to make a
claim for benefits do not need to take any action at this time,"
VW Canada said.

The settlement coincides with the fix the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board approved
for the Generation Two 3.0-liter engines on Dec. 19.  Canadian
regulators routinely accept the U.S.-approved fixes and emissions
standards.

Owners and lessees with Generation Two vehicles may receive the
emissions repair recall for their Volkswagen Touareg (model years
2013-2016), Audi Q7 (model years 2013-2015) and Porsche Cayenne
(model years 2013-2016) 3.0L diesel vehicles as soon as it
launches in Canada without losing any right to a cash payment
under the proposed settlement, Volkswagen Canada said.

Additional notice will be provided when the recall launches in
Canada for the Audi A6, A7, A8, A8L and Q5 (model years 2014-
2016). [GN]

WOODFOREST BANK: Class Action Lawsuit Filed
-------------------------------------------
Atlanta-based law firm Webb, Klase & Lemond, LLC, and Houston-
based law firm Meade & Neese LLP have filed a class action
lawsuit against Woodforest National Bank ("Woodforest Bank") and
its former payment processing affiliate Merchants' Choice Payment
Solutions ("Merchants' Choice") alleging they perpetrate a
widespread fraudulent scheme of inducing small businesses to
enroll in their services through a telephone fraud ring.
Merchants' Choice is one of the largest payment processors in the
country, with 70,000 merchants signed up.

The Class Action Complaint states that Woodforest Bank sold
Merchants' Choice for $470 million to Paysafe Group, PLC in
August of 2017, but the claims in the lawsuit extend back several
years pursuant to the applicable statutes of limitations. The
price paid for Merchants' Choice equaled nearly $7,000 per
merchant customer. After the Merchants' Choice purchase, Paysafe
Group, PLC agreed to be purchased by a consortium led by
Blackstone Group LP and CVC Capital Partners.

The suit alleges that Woodforest Bank and Merchants' Choice
trained their agents to cold call small businesses and falsely
indicate they are affiliated with the businesses' current payment
processor. According to the suit, Defendants' agents then inform
such merchants that they either need to update their equipment to
maintain regulatory compliance or need to reapply in order to
avoid fee increases. The paperwork which is then sent by
Defendants is in reality a new contract with Defendants. The suit
alleges such misrepresentations cause businesses to unknowingly
enter new contracts, often resulting in businesses paying monthly
fees to both Merchants' Choice and the actual processor for the
same service. The suit further alleges that Merchants' Choice
does not even adhere to the payment processing fees referenced in
the bogus promotional materials and contracts, but instead
charges much higher fees.

The lawsuit describes multiple regulatory enforcement actions
against Woodforest Bank and Merchants' Choice, as well as a
Better Business Bureau alert, hundreds of complaints by victims,
and a documentary exposÇ by a business group.

The lawsuit also brings claims for a second class of Merchants'
Choice customers that knowingly signed up for payment processing
services. These customers are alleged to have been victims of a
bait and switch, pursuant to which promotional materials and
contractual documents promised certain rates and fees but
Defendants actually charged higher amounts.

The Class Action Complaint alleges that Woodforest Bank and
Merchants' Choice have perpetrated the same schemes across the
country and brings causes of action for fraud, misrepresentation,
breach of contract, and unjust enrichment.

On behalf of themselves and the class members, the Plaintiffs
seek rescission of fraudulently induced contracts and the return
of all improper fees paid to the Defendants.

The case, styled Al's Pals Pet Care, LLC, et al. v. Woodforest
National Bank, N.A., et al., is pending in the United States
District Court for the Southern District of Texas and has been
assigned case number 4:17-cv-03852. [GN]

XCELIGENT INC: Employee Files Class-Action Lawsuit
--------------------------------------------------
Konrad Putzier, writing for The Real Deal New York, reports that
a former Xceligent employee filed a class-action lawsuit against
the data company and its British parent, the Daily Mail and
General Trust, over its abrupt closure and mass layoffs.

Last December 21, workers were informed Xceligent is filing for
Chapter 7 liquidation and that they were "separated from
employment effective immediately." The company gave its employees
30 minutes to collect belongings and leave the building.

The lawsuit, filed by Missouri-based former Xceligent field
researcher Jean Morris on behalf of around 500 employees in
Delaware federal bankruptcy court, alleges that DMGT violated the
Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act by not
giving them at least 60 days notice that they would lose their
jobs. The suit seeks up to 60 days' pay and retirement and health
benefits.

"DMGT did not shut down Xceligent," a spokesperson for DMGT said
Friday. "The Xceligent board decided to file for Chapter 7. The
allegation relating to WARN is therefore against Xceligent."

DMGT, which owns the tabloid Daily Mail, had bemoaned Xceligent's
"disappointing" expansion into New York City and had written the
carrying value of Xceligent down to zero in November. Xceligent
folded amid a costly legal battle with CoStar Group, which claims
the rival data company stole its images.

CoStar intends to continue the litigation, and its legal filings
indicate that it will now turn its attention to DMGT. "While the
bankruptcy has stayed the case against Xceligent, CoStar will
continue legal efforts to hold accountable those involved in the
theft of its intellectual property," a CoStar spokesperson said.

YUME INC: "McCrary" Suit Seeks to Enjoin Merger with RhythmOne
--------------------------------------------------------------
LONNIE MCCRARY, Individually and on Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. YUME, INC., ERIC B. SINGER,
CHRISTOPHER B. PAISLEY, DANIEL D. SPRINGER, JAYANT KADAMBI,
ADRIEL G. LARES, MITCHELL J. HABIB, AYYAPPAN SANKARAN, and ELIAS
N. NADER, the Defendants, Case No. 4:18-cv-00130-JSW (N.D. Cal.,
Jan. 5, 2018), seeks to enjoin Defendants from holding the
shareholder vote on a Proposed Transaction and taking any steps
to consummate the Proposed Transaction unless and until material
information is disclosed to YuMe's stockholders sufficiently in
advance of the vote on the Proposed Transaction or, in the event
the Proposed Transaction is consummated, to recover damages
resulting from the Defendants' violations of the Exchange Act.

According to the complaint, on September 5, 2017, YuMe and
RhythmOne issued a joint press release announcing that they had
entered into an agreement and plan of merger and reorganization.
Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Purchaser will
acquire all issued and outstanding shares of YuMe common stock,
with each share of YuMe common stock exchange for the right to
receive: (i) $1.70 in cash; and (ii) 7.325 ordinary shares ú0.10
each in the capital of RhythmOne, plus cash in lieu of any
fractional shares of RhythmOne Stock, in each case, without
interest. As a result, each share of YuMe common stock has an
implied value of $5.20 per share. The Proposed Transaction is
valued at approximately $185 million.

On December 26, 2017, in order to convince YuMe stockholders to
tender their shares, the Board authorized the filing of a
materially incomplete and misleading Form F-4 Registration
Statement with the SEC. Subsequently, on January 4, 2018,
Defendants authorized the filing of a materially incomplete and
misleading Form F-4/A Registration Statement with the SEC, in
violation of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act.
3. In particular, the F-4 contains materially incomplete and
misleading information concerning: (i) financial projections for
RhythmOne; and (ii) the valuation analyses performed by the
Company's financial advisor, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., in
support of their fairness opinion; and (iii) the background
process leading to the Proposed Transaction.

YuMe is a provider of digital video brand advertising. The
company's solutions for video advertising campaigns are targeted
at both supply-side and the demand-side customers.[BN]
