APPLE INC: "Bond" Sues Over Undisclosed iOS Upgrade Bug
-------------------------------------------------------
Jennifer Bond, David Haury, Alberto R. Marzana, John Rufty, III,
Ryan Young and Elisa Gaudio, individually and on behalf of others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. Apple Inc., Defendant, Case No.
18-cv-00833, (N.D. Ala., February 7, 2018), seeks monetary
damages, including but not limited to, compensatory, incidental,
and consequential damages, punitive damages, attorney fees and
costs incurred by counsel for Plaintiffs in accordance with
California's Unfair Competition Law and California's False
Advertising Law and the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.

Apple allegedly failed to inform consumers that updating their
iPhone 6, 6S, SE or 7 to iOS 10.2.1 (and/or later to iOS 11.2)
would dramatically and artificially reduce the performance of
these devices. Apple also failed to inform consumers that phone
performance would be restored by simply replacing the phone's
lithium-ion battery, a much cheaper solution than buying a new
phone.

iPhone users reported sudden shutdowns of iPhones 5 and 6 running
versions of iOS 10 software. In February of 2017, Apple claimed
that it had almost entirely resolved the issue in its latest
10.2.1 iOS update, however users still complained of slow
devices.

Defendant is a manufacturer of smartphones under the trade name
"iPhone." [BN]

BILL BARRETT: "Connor" Suit Seeks to Halt Merger Deal
-----------------------------------------------------
Howard Connor, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Bill Barrett Corporation, Jim W. Mogg, R.
Scot Woodall, William F. Owens, Edmund P. Segner, Randy I. Stein
and Michael E. Wiley, Defendants, Case No. 18-cv-00323, (D.
Colo., February 8, 2018), seeks to enjoin Defendants and all
persons acting in concert with them from proceeding with,
consummating or closing the merger between Bill Barrett and Fifth
Creek Energy Operating Company, LLC, rescinding it in the event
defendants consummate the merger, and rescissory damages, costs
of this action, including reasonable allowance for plaintiff's
attorneys' and experts' fees and such other and further relief
under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Bill Barret and Fifth Creek will each become direct wholly owned
subsidiaries of Red Rider Holdco, Inc., which will be renamed
upon closing of the mergers. Each outstanding share of Bill
Barret common stock will convert into the right to receive one
share of Holdco common stock and all outstanding equity interests
in Fifth Creek, in the aggregate, will convert into the right to
receive an aggregate of 100,000,000 shares of Holdco common
stock.

Bill Barret is an independent energy company that develops,
acquires and explores for oil and natural gas resources. Fifth
Creek is a private exploration and production company, based in
Greenwood Village, Colorado, focusing on the development of oil
and gas reserves in the Hereford Field area of the DJ Basin,
located in rural northern Weld County, Colorado.

The complaint says the proxy statement omitted financial
projections and analyses performed by the company's financial
advisor, Tudor Pickering Holt & Co Advisors LP. Said disclosure
provides stockholders with a basis to project the future
financial performance of a company, and allows stockholders to
better understand the financial analyses.

Connor is a Bob Barret shareholder. [BN]

DUKE UNIVERSITY: Seeks 4th Cir. Review of Ruling in "Seaman" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Defendants Duke University and Duke University Health Systems,
Incorporated, filed an appeal from a court ruling in the lawsuit
entitled Danielle Seaman, individually and on behalf of all
others similarly situated v. Duke University and Duke University
Health Systems, Incorporated, Case No. 1:15-cv-00462-CCE-JLW, in
the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina
at Greensboro.

The appellate case is captioned as Duke University, et al. v.
Danielle Seaman, Case No. 18-131, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter on Feb. 20,
2018, a district court judge ruled that the antitrust lawsuit
against Duke for an alleged no-hire agreement can be expanded
into a class-action suit.

The lawsuit can now cover a total of 5,500 doctors at the Duke
University School of Medicine or the University of North Carolina
School of Medicine, the Associated Press reported.  By becoming a
class-action suit, U.S. District Judge Catherine Eagles ruled
that all faculty members with an academic appointment at any
point from 2012 to the present at either school are represented,
and may receive compensation for damages depending on the outcome
of the case.

The certified faculty class consists of:

      "all natural persons employed by Defendants and their co-
      conspirators in the United States during the period from
      January 1, 2012 through the present (the "Class Period") as
      a faculty member with an academic appointment at the Duke
      or UNC Schools of Medicine.  Excluded from the Class are:
      members of the boards of directors and boards of trustees,
      boards of governors, and senior executives of Defendants
      and their co-conspirators who entered into the illicit
      agreements alleged herein; and any and all judges and
      justices, and chambers' staff, assigned to hear or
      adjudicate any aspect of this litigation."

The District Court appointed Danielle Seaman, who filed the
original suit, as class representative and the law firms Lieff
Cabraser Heimann and Bernstein, LLP and Elliot Morgan Parsonage,
P.A. as class counsel, to prosecute the case.

The lawsuit began in May 2015 when Seaman, then-assistant
professor of radiology, sued Duke, saying that she had lost a job
opportunity due to a no-hire agreement between the University and
UNC that she said violated federal antitrust laws.

UNC was originally a co-defendant alongside Duke in the case, but
Eagles officially approved a settlement by UNC on Jan. 4 that did
not require the school to pay any money.  As part of the
settlement, UNC did have to commit to never enter into such an
agreement in the future and provide testimonies and internal
documents to Ms. Seaman's attorneys.  As part of the settlement,
UNC denied wrongdoing.  The faculty from UNC are included in the
class action suit.

The lawsuit arose after Seaman expressed interest in a job at UNC
and claims she received an e-mail from their chief of
cardiothoracic imaging saying that the two schools have agreed to
not allow lateral moves of faculty.[BN]

JB HUNT: Petition for Writ of Certiorari Filed in "Ortega" Case

In case captioned Geraldo Ortega, Michael D. Patton, individually
and on behalf of themselves, all others similarly situated, and
the general public, Plaintiffs-Appellants, v. J. B. Hunt
Transport, Inc., Defendant-Appellee, Case No. 17-1111 (Supreme
Court of United States, July 31, 2017), a petition for a writ of
certiorari was filed on February 5, 2018.

Said case was filed as Case No. 14-56034 on July 31, 2017 with
the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Gerardo
Ortega and Michael Patton seek to recover unpaid wages and
penalties from Defendant. According to Plaintiffs, California
labor law requires Defendant to provide meal and rest breaks, and
failure to do so subjects Defendant to provide reimbursement to
Plaintiffs, in addition to penalties. Defendant contends,
however, that the California Labor Code is preempted by the
Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act wherein
Defendant is entitled to judgment on the pleadings as to
Plaintiffs' claims relating to meal and rest break requirements.
The district court granted summary judgment in J.B. Hunt's favor
on Plaintiffs' minimum wage claims. [BN]

JOSEPH K. JONES: Mann Appeals Order in "Winters" to Third Circuit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Defendants Law Offices of Laura S. Mann LLC and Laura S. Mann
filed an appeal from a court ruling in the lawsuit styled Jeffrey
A. Winters, et al. v. Joseph K. Jones, et al., Case No. 2-16-cv-
09020, in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.

The appellate case is captioned as Jeffrey Winters, et al. v.
Joseph Jones, et al., Case No. 18-1365, in the United States
Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

As reported in the Class Action Reporter on Feb. 16, 2018, the
District Court granted the Defendant's Motion to Dismiss the
case.

Plaintiff Collection Solutions, Inc., is a New Jersey corporation
that primarily provides debt collection services.  Plaintiff
Jeffrey Winters is the sole shareholder of Collection Solutions,
Inc.  Defendants Joseph Jones and Benjamin Wolf are attorneys who
practice at the firm of Jones, Wolf & Kapasi, LLC.  Defendant
Laura Mann is an attorney and the principal at the firm of Laura
S. Mann, LLC.  Defendants Ari Marcus and Yitzchak Zelman are
attorneys and the principals of the firm of Marcus & Zelman, LLC.

The Plaintiffs claim that "the particular actionable conduct
perpetrated by Defendants against Plaintiffs . . . was the class
action litigation . . . Juliette Chapa, et al[.] v[.] Charles I.
Turner Esq., and United Credit Specialists et al.,2 in the
Federal District Court of New Jersey, Case No. 2:15-cv-03125."
("Chapa Case").  Plaintiffs settled the Chapa Case for $12,000 in
September 2016.  Plaintiffs allege that the Chapa Case is
illustrative of Defendants' enterprise pursuant to The Racketeer
Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act ("RICO") of joining
together to bring sham class action lawsuits against debt
collection agencies.

The Plaintiffs allege that at some point prior to 2013,
Defendants formed a RICO enterprise that "avoided Small Claims
Courts or unprofitable immediate payment of nominal claims
without attorney's fees, by filing sham putative class actions in
Federal court en masse on theory that the vast majority of the
relatively deep-pocket defendants (mostly debt collection
companies) would view a quick settlement for under $100,000 as
basically a nuisance claim; with the rare contested case only
confirming to victim defendants the practical advisability of
settling early on a class basis."

"To perpetuate the alleged sham class actions, Defendants search
out, solicit, and develop professional plaintiffs retained to
pose as theoretical least sophisticated consumers.  Defendants
falsely impute imaginary false damages to those professional
plaintiffs," the Plaintiffs said.

To support these allegations, Plaintiffs point to five cases
filed on behalf of the same plaintiff (Marni Tntglio), where Ari
Marcus on behalf of Marcus & Zelman LLC was co-counsel.

The Plaintiffs allege that Defendants violated the federal RICO
statute, 18 U.S.C. Section 1961 and the New Jersey RICO statute,
N.J.S.A. 2C:41-1.  Additionally, Plaintiffs assert that
Defendants committed fraud, negligence, and legal malpractice
through their participation in the RICO scheme.  Thus, the Court
has federal question jurisdiction over the federal RICO claim and
supplemental jurisdiction over the New Jersey RICO, fraud,
negligence, and legal malpractice claims.

The Plaintiffs claim that Defendants' RICO liability stems from
their filing of class actions pursuant to the FDCPA.[BN]

States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

RUBY TUESDAY: Faces "Bluestone" Suit Over False Proxy Statement
---------------------------------------------------------------
Robert Bluestone, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated v. Ruby Tuesday, Inc., Stephen I. Sadove, Mark
W. Addicks, Donald E. Hess, F. Lane Cardwell, Jr., Kevin T.
Clayton, Jeffrey J. O'Neill, and James F. Hyatt, II, Case No.
3:18-cv-00063 (E.D. Tenn., February 21, 2018), is brought on
behalf of all the former holders of Ruby Tuesday, Inc. common
stock to enjoin the go-private sale of the Company to certain
affiliates of NRD Capital Management for $2.40 per share.

According to the complaint, Ruby filed a Preliminary Proxy
Statement the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which
recommends that Neustar stockholders vote in favor of the
Proposed Transaction. However, the Proxy omits material
information concerning, among other things: (a) management's
financial projections reflecting the scenario where Ruby
Tuesday monetizes its real estate (e.g., through a sale and
leaseback or financing transaction) and completes the turnaround
plan to return value to the Company's stockholders; (b)
management's sale and leaseback analysis and valuation based on
same; (c) same store sales growth rate numbers for fiscal years
2018-2022; and (d) management's financial projections dated
November 11, 2016, February 6, 2017 and March 7, 2017, each which
were provided to the Board, used to value the Company by
UBS, and indicated higher valuations for the Company than the
revised down, lowest financial projections used in the fairness
analyses. The failure to adequately disclose such material
information constitutes a violation of the Exchange Act as
stockholders need such information in order to cast a fully-
informed vote in connection with the Proposed Transaction.  The
Complaint says the Proposed Transaction will unlawfully divest
Ruby's public stockholders of the Company's valuable assets
without fully disclosing all material information concerning the
Proposed Transaction to Company stockholders. To remedy
defendants' Exchange Act violations, Plaintiff seeks to enjoin
the stockholder vote on the Proposed Transaction unless and until
such problems are remedied.

Ruby Tuesday, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, engages in
the ownership, development, operation, and franchise of casual
dining restaurants under the Ruby Tuesday name in the United
States and internationally. [BN]

--------------------------------------------------------------
Anthony Franchi, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. Stone Energy Corporation, Neal
P. Goldman, David I. Rainey, James M. Trimble, Brad Juneau,
Charles M. Sledge, David N. Weinstein, Talos Energy LLC, Talos
Production Llc, Sailfish Energy Holdings Corporation and Sailfish
Merger Sub Corporation, Defendants, Case No. 18-cv-00167 (W.D.
La., February 8, 2018), seeks to enjoin defendants and all
persons acting in concert with them from proceeding with,
consummating or closing the merger between Stone Energy with
Talos Energy LLC, Talos Production LLC, Sailfish Energy Holdings
Corporation and Sailfish Merger Sub Corporation, rescinding it in
the event defendants consummate the merger.  The lawsuit also
seeks rescissory damages, costs of this action, including
reasonable allowance for plaintiff's attorneys' and experts' fees
and such other and further relief under the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934.

Each outstanding share of Stone Energy common stock will be
exchanged for one share of Talos Energy, Inc. common stock and
the current Talos stakeholders will be issued an aggregate of
approximately 34.2 million common shares. At closing, Talos
stakeholders will own 63% of the combined company, with Stone
Energy shareholders owning the remaining 37%.

Stone Energy is an independent oil and natural gas exploration
and production company headquartered in Lafayette, Louisiana with
an additional office in New Orleans. It is engaged in the
acquisition, exploration, development, and production of
properties in the Gulf of Mexico basin.

The complaint says the proxy statement omitted financial
projections and analyses performed by the company's financial
advisor, Petrie Partners Securities, LLC and failed to disclose
earnings, interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization,
discretionary cash flow and free cash flow. Said disclosures
provides stockholders with a basis to project the future
financial performance of a company, and allows stockholders to
better understand the financial analyses. Franchi is a
shareholder of Stone Energy. [BN]
