APPLE INC: Court Denied Class Certification in "Davidson" Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled THOMAS DAVIDSON, et al., the Plaintiffs, v.
APPLE, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 5:16-cv-04942-LHK (N.D.
Cal.), the Hon. Judge Lucy H. Koh entered an order denying
Plaintiff's motion for class certification of:

   "any person residing in Colorado, Florida, Illinois,
   Washington, or Texas who purchased an Apple iPhone 6 or iPhone
   6 Plus from Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider
   (listed on https://locate.apple.com/) that was manufactured
   without underfill under the U2402 (Meson) integrated circuit
   chip".

The Court finds that adjudication of the certified issues would
not advance the resolution of the underlying case. To start,
certifying a liability class under the Texas Deceptive Trade
Practices Act would not resolve individual issues concerning
reliance. In turn, because reliance is an essential component of
liability, the ultimate question of Apple's liability under the
TDTPA -- in addition to damages -- would still have to be
resolved on an individual basis. Nor are things different for
Plaintiffs' claims under the Illinois Consumer Fraud and
Deceptive Trade Practices Act, Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade
Practices Act, and Washington Consumer Protection Act. Although
the reliance issue is absent, Plaintiffs still have not
articulated "why a bifurcated proceeding would be more efficient
or desirable."

According to the Court, the reasoning in Rahman v. Mott's LLP,
693 F. App'x 578, 579 (9th Cir. 2017) is fully applicable in this
case.  "The plaintiff there sought certification of a liability
class under Rule 23(c)(4) after being denied certification of a
damages class under Rule 23(b)(3). The district court denied the
request because the plaintiff was vague as to how damages would
ultimately be determined. Moreover, the plaintiff failed to
explain how "allowing myriad individual damages claims to go
forward [would be] a reasonable or efficient alternative,
particularly in a case such as this where the average class
member is likely to have suffered less than a hundred dollars in
damages." Granted, damages in the instant case may exceed the
hundred dollars in damages in Rahman -- but given that the cost
of repair in the instant case is $150 per Plaintiffs' technical
expert and Plaintiffs' damages expert estimated damages at $432,
the Rahman rationale still applies here.  It is far from clear
that resolving liability on a classwide basis would advance the
underlying resolution of the instant case. The bottom line is
that Plaintiffs' perfunctory request for Rule 23(c)(4)
certification fails to show why certification would materially
advance the litigation as a whole. The Court therefore denies
Rule 23(c)(4) certification."

COACH INC: Court Denied Class Certification Bid in "Vaughn"
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled MARTHA VAUGHN, the Plaintiff, v. COACH,
INC., the Defendant, Case No. 3:16-cv-04633-VC (N.D. Cal.), the
Hon. Judge Vince Chhabria entered an order denying Martha
Vaughn's motion for class certification.

The court said, "The motion for class certification is denied
because she has not shown that common issues predominate over
individual issues, as she must under Rule 23(b)(3). In this suit,
Vaughn alleges that store managers at Coach stores in California
were improperly denied a number of state wage-and-hour
protections, including overtime compensation and meal and rest
breaks. Coach argues it was not required to provide these
protections, because its store managers are exempt executive
employees under the California law. Both sides agree that Vaughn
and other store managers did some managerial work. But Vaughn
argues that managerial work never constituted more than half of
her and other store managers' work, as it must to be considered
an executive employee under the California law. The key issue for
each purported class member's claim is whether that class member
spent more than half of her time engaged in managerial work. This
question, in turn, involves three main inquiries: (1) what tasks
did the store manager perform; (2) were these tasks managerial;
and (3) how much time did the manager spend on managerial and
non-managerial tasks. Vaughn has not established that these
questions can be adjudicated on a class-wide basis. And the
record suggests that at least the third inquiry could require
individualized proof. Though the proposed class members share the
same title, how store managers spend their time varies
substantially. In part, this variation flows from Coach's
decision to give store managers discretion in how to spend their
time. In part, store managers' actual work varies because they do
not work in a standardized setting. Coach has store manager-led
stores in California that generate less than $500,000 in annual
revenue, and it has store manager-led stores in the state that
generate around $20 million in annual revenue.  In a small store,
a store manager may supervise a total staff of around 7; in a
larger store, a store manager could work with around 10 associate
and assistant managers, and in total supervise over 30 employees.
Because Vaughn has failed to establish predominance, the Court
declines to address the remaining requirements for class
certification at this time. Denial of the motion is without
prejudice. Under these circumstances, it is reasonable to give
Vaughn another chance to move for class certification because
there is a reasonable possibility that Vaughn could establish
predominance in a subsequent motion. Although Vaughn has not made
the required showing in this motion, it appears possible that
both the inquiry into what tasks store managers in fact perform
and the inquiry into whether these tasks are managerial as a
matter of law could be litigated on a class-wide basis. For
example, it seems that the question of whether a store manager is
engaged in managerial work while participating in sales to
customers can be adjudicated as to all class members."

ENAGIC USA: Kim Sues over Sale of Water Purifiers
-------------------------------------------------
EDWARD KIM, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. ENAGIC USA, INC.; and DOES 1 through
50, inclusive, the Defendant, Case No. BC705067 (Cal. Super. Ct.,
May 8, 2018), seeks to challenge and address ENAGIC's unlawful,
unfair, and deceptive practices, relating to the sale and
financing of goods and/or services by way of door-to-door sales
in the State of California, pursuant to the Home Solicitation
Sales Act.

According to the complaint, ENAGIC unlawfully markets, sells, and
finances alkaline ionizers and water filtration machines, through
door-to-door sales, to unwary consumers. ENAGIC uses form
contracts that fail to provide consumers with statutorily
mandated cancellation notices and other disclosures in violation
of the Home Solicitation Sales Act. In addition, ENAGIC sells and
finances goods and/or services without providing contracts to the
consumers in the languages in which they negotiated the contracts
in violation of the Contract Translation Act.  To halt and remedy
ENAGIC's unlawful, unfair, and deceptive practices, the Plaintiff
seeks appropriate relief for himself and the class including
damages, restitution, injunctive relief, as well as attorneys'
fees and costs.

On or around April 5, 2015, an ENAGIC salesperson and agent of
ENAGIC, John Hong, arrived at Plaintiff's home and attempted to
sell Plaintiff ENAGIC's Continuous Ionized Kangen Water Generator
to Plaintiff. Both Plaintiff and the Sales Agent speak Korean and
the negotiations between them were conducted in Korean. The Sales
Agent represented that the Product would cure Plaintiffs chronic
health problems including problems with his kidney. In fact,
according to the Sales Agent, the water purifier would provide a
vast array of health benefits. The Sales Agent visited Plaintiffs
home several times over the course of the coming months in an
effort to convince Plaintiff to buy the water purifier. Finally,
Plaintiff agreed to purchase the Product on August 13, 2015 at
the Sales Agent's home. The Plaintiff was unable to afford to
purchase the Product for $1,480.00 in cash. The Sales Agent
informed Plaintiff that he could purchase the Product by making a
down payment of $532.50 and subsequent monthly installment
payments for 10 months.

ENAGIC is engaged in a door-to-door sales scheme to sell its
products, so-called water purifying equipment, to California
consumers without complying with California's consumer protection
statutes.[BN]

FACEBOOK INC: Faces "Buckles" Suit for Selling Consumer Reports
---------------------------------------------------------------
SANFORD BUCKLES, INDIVIDUALLY AND ON BEHALF OF ALL OTHERS
SIMILARLY SITUATED v. FACEBOOK, INC., Case No. 3:18-cv-02189
(N.D. Cal., April 12, 2018), is brought for damages, injunctive
relief and other available remedies, resulting from the alleged
illegal actions of the Defendant for willfully violating the Fair
Credit Reporting Act.

Facebook, Inc., is a Delaware Corporation with its principal
place of business in California.

Facebook is a "consumer reporting agency" as that term is defined
by the FCRA, Mr. Buckles alleges.  He contends that Facebook is a
Consumer Reporting Agency that furnishes consumer reports under
the FCRA.  He argues that Facebook is a CRA because it regularly
assembles and transmits information regarding consumers to third
party advertisers, data brokers, researchers, and other third-
parties, oftentimes for a fee.[BN]

Simi Valley, Inc., and Does 1 through 20, Defendants, Case No.
BC700684 (Cal. Super., Los Angeles Cty., April 2, 2018) alleges
violation of the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act.

According to the complaint, on December 28, 2017, the Plaintiffs
went to Defendants' dealership and indicated that they had seen
the vehicle advertised by the Defendants and they are interested
in purchasing it. The Plaintiffs attempted to negotiate the
Defendants down from the $31,650 advertised price, but Defendants
responded that not only would the Defendants not negotiate down
from the $31,650 advertised price, but they would not even sell
it to the Plaintiffs for the $31,650 advertised price. The
Defendants would only sell the vehicle for anything less than
$33,995, $2,345 above the advertised price. The Plaintiffs then
purchased the vehicle at the $33,995 price, over protest that it
was over the amount advertised.

GILEAD SCIENCES: Martinez and Wohler Sue over Antiviral Meds
------------------------------------------------------------
DEVIN MARTINEZ and RICARDO WOHLER, individually, and on behalf of
all others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v. GILEAD
SCIENCES, INC., the Defendant, Case No. BC705063 (Cal. Super.
Ct., May 8, 2018), is a lawsuit on behalf of California consumers
who purchased Gilead's Viread, Truvada, or Atripla drugs from
October 26,2001, through the present, and who were personally or
whose physician was exposed to Gilead's misrepresentations about
TDF, Viread, Truvada, or Atripla. The Plaintiffs are consumers of
Gilead's tenofovir and tenofovir-based antiviral medications,
Viread, Truvada, and Atripla. The Plaintiffs were prescribed and
took Gilead's drugs as part of "highly active antiretroviral
therapy" to treat and manage HIV infection.

Viread is the brand name of "tenofovir disoproxil fumarate",
which is a prodrug of the compound tenofovir. TDF works by
blocking the protein that HIV needs to replicate itself in the
human body. TDF is Viread's only active ingredient. Truvada and
Atripla are both fixed dose combination tablets containing 300
milligrams of TDF and one or two additional drugs. Truvada
combines TDF with 200 milligrams of emtricitabine, and Atripla
adds one more medication to that combination, 600 mg of
efavirenz.

Gilead knew, or should have known, at the time it developed,
manufactured, and sold Viread, Truvada, and Atripla that TDF was
highly toxic in the doses prescribed and risked permanent and
possibly fatal damage to the kidneys and bones. Instead of fully
and completely investigating and disclosing the known and
knowable risks associated with TDF, Gilead ignored and
affirmatively misrepresented them. As well, at the same time it
was promoting TDF as safe and effective, Gilead was researching a
safer and more effective prodrug that greatly reduced the risk of
toxicity to kidneys and bones. Gilead first misrepresented TDF's
safety profile as early as 2001, right after Viread's approval,
through its sales representatives and CEO, claiming that TDF was
a "miracle drug," had "no toxicides," was "benign," and
"extremely safe." Gilead's CEO at the time, Dr. John C. Martin,
would often refer to TDF as a miracle drug at sales meetings.

According to the complaint, Gilead's tactics have allowed it to
reap outsized profits. In 2015, Gilead was able to earn 90% Non-
GAAP Product Gross Margins. Gilead's tactics have led the New
York Times to comment, "Gilead now is faced with figuring out
what to do with all the cash it is generating."

Gilead's high profits come from the steep costs of its drugs.
High prices of drugs such as Gilead's Truvada ($18,456 per year)
limit patient access either through exorbitant out of pocketcosts
or co-pays, limitations in existing insurance, and rationing of
these high-priced pills. In its 2015 earnings Guidance, Gilead
stated that it anticipated spending between $2.8 billion and $3
billion on research and development, while earning a profit of
roughly $23 billion. Gilead spent approximately that much in 2015
on research and development but its profits in 2015 were $36.2
billion. If Gilead's tactics are allowed to continue without
sanction, Gilead will continue to harm the public and violate
California law.[BN]

HYATT HOTELS: Tichy Sues Over Hotel Internet Search Rigging
-----------------------------------------------------------
Karen Tichy, individually and on behalf of others similarly

Worldwide Holdings, Inc., Intercontinental Hotels Group, PLC,
Marriott International, Inc., Choice Hotels International, Inc.
and Wyndham Worldwide Corporation, Defendant, Case No. 17-cv-
01959, (N.D. Ill., March 19, 2017), seeks damages and equitable
relief under Sections 4 and 16 of the Clayton Act and Section 1
of the Sherman Antitrust Act.

Plaintiff alleges that the Defendants engaged in an anti-
competitive horizontal agreement to restrain competition for
consumer hotel room purchases.  Specifically, the Defendants
conspired and agreed to eliminate branded keyword search
advertising against each other, depriving consumers of the free
flow of competitive information, raising consumer prices for
hotel rooms and raising the cost of finding hotel rooms for
consumers.

Ms. Tichy searched for hotel rooms using Defendants' branded
keywords. She recalls in her searches for hotel rooms on Google
that she began to notice fewer competitive options being
presented.

Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, Choice, IHG and Wyndham control
approximately 60% of all hotel room inventory in the United

KNORR-BREMSE AG: Theobald Sues over No-Poach Policy
---------------------------------------------------
DUSTIN THEOBALD, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff v. KNORR-BREMSE AG; KNORR BRAKE
COMPANY; NEW YORK AIR BRAKE COMPANY; WESTINGHOUSE AIR BRAKE
TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION; and FAIVELEY TRANSPORT NORTH AMERICA
INC., Defendants, Case No. Case 2:18-cv-00526-CRE (W.D. Pa.,
April 24, 2018), seeks to recover damages suffered by the
Plaintiff and the Class and to secure equitable and injunctive
relief against the Defendants for violating the Sherman Act.

According to the complaint, the Defendants Knorr-Bremse AG,
Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies Corporation, and Faiveley
Transport S.A., prior to its acquisition by Wabtec in November
2016, collectively agreed not to solicit, recruit, or hire each
other's employees without prior approval, or otherwise compete
for employees.

The conspiratorial No-Poach Agreements had the effect of
unlawfully allocating employees between Defendants, resulting in
suppressed compensation, among other injuries, to U.S. workers.
Despite the high demand for a limited supply of skilled employees
who have the relevant technical and industry experience, the
unlawful No-Poach Agreements substantially limited U.S. rail
industry workers' access to better job opportunities, restricted
mobility, and deprived them of information useful in negotiating
better terms of employment, including higher compensation.

Knorr-Bremse Aktiengesellschaft develops, produces, markets, and
services braking systems for rail and commercial vehicles. The
Company provides entrance, windscreen wiper, driver assistance,
and power supply systems, as well as platform screen doors and
torsional vibration dampers. Knorr-Bremse serves customers

Laboratories Inc.; Actavis LLC; Actavis Pharma, Inc., formerly

10799, was transferred from the U.S. District Court for the
District of Massachusetts, to the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of Ohio (Cleveland) on May 8, 2018. The
Northern District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 1:18-op-45542-DAP
to the proceeding.

The Asbestos Workers 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. These cases concern the alleged
improper marketing of and inappropriate distribution of various
prescription opiate medications into cities, states and towns
across the country. Responding plaintiffs' positions on
centralization vary considerably. Plaintiffs in over 40 actions
or potential tag-along actions support centralization. Plaintiffs
in fifteen actions or potential tag-along actions oppose
centralization altogether or oppose transfer of their action. In
addition to opposing transfer, the State of West Virginia
suggests that the transfer of its case be delayed until the
Southern District of West Virginia court decides its motion to
remand to state court. Third party payor plaintiffs in an Eastern
District of Pennsylvania potential tag-along action (Philadelphia
Teachers Health and Welfare Fund) oppose centralization of third
partypayor actions.  The Western District of Washington plaintiff
City of Everett opposes centralization and, alternatively,
requests exclusion of its case.  The Northern District of
Illinois tagalong plaintiff City of Chicago asks the Panel to
defer transfer of its action until document discovery is
completed. Presiding Judge in the MDL is Sarah S. Vance, United
States District Judge. The lead case is 1:17-md-02804-DAP.[BN]

pay Drivers compensation for attending mandatory safety meetings
outside their scheduled shifts that were directly related to
their jobs. As a result, there were many weeks in which Plaintiff

NAVIENT CORPORATION: West Sues over Debt Collection Practices
-------------------------------------------------------------
LISA WEST, an individual, on her own behalf and on behalf of all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. NAVIENT CORPORATION,
a Delaware corporation, NAVIENT SOLUTIONS, LLC, a Delaware
limited liability company, and DOES 1-100, inclusive, the
Defendants, Case No. CGC-18-566401 (Cal. Super. Ct., May 8,
2018), seeks to recover statutory damages against Defendants, and
in favor of West and other members of the class, consistent with
Civil Code section 1788.17 and 15 U.S.C. section l692k(a)(2)(B)
and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

According to the complaint, some or all of the loans which
Defendants collect were made under the Federal Family Education
Loan Program. West endorsed and guaranteed FFELP loans for her
child's education, and Defendants have collected money from her
under these loans. In January 2018, Defendants placed various
FFELP loans into forbearance based on "the recent natural
disasters" in southern California ("January Forbearance").
Defendants communicated to West and other class members that
"Interest will accrue during the natural disaster forbearance
period. In an effort to provide you relief as a result of the
disaster, this interest will not be capitalized." In fact, a
close review of Defendants' contemporaneous loan statements
reveals that the January Forbearance in fact increased the
capitalized interest on West's loans by more than $100. On
information and belief, West alleges Defendants increased or
sought to increase the capitalized interest for all of the FFELP
loans affected by the January Forbearance.

The federal Department of Education regulates forbearances on
FFELP loans. In particular, Department of Education's regulation
required Defendants to affirmatively "provide. The Defendants
attempted to collect and collected the additional capitalized
interest on FFELP loans without complying with the foregoing
provisions of 34 C.F.R. section 682.2ll(e) or (i) Defendants'
conduct violated the Rosenthal Act because Defendants were not
authorized by the FFELP loans nor permitted by law to add
capitalized interest to the FFELP loans in connection with the
January Forbearance without complying with 34 C.F.R. Sec.
682.211. Defendants' collection also violated the Rosenthal Act
because Defendants used false representations and deceptive means
to collect or attempt to collect the additional capitalized
interest, in violation of 34 C.F.R. section 682.2.  The Plaintiff
asserts a claim under Civil Code section 1788 for statutory
damages and costs, together with a reasonable attorneys' fee, for
herself and a class of consumers who Defendants told that their
FFELP loans would "not be capitalized" during any forbearance,
but to which Defendants capitalized additional interest during
the forbearance.

The Defendants collect educational debts regularly and in the
ordinary course of their business.[BN]

CINDY BAKER, on behalf of herself and all other similarly

03097 (C.D. Cal., April 12, 2018), alleges that the Defendants'

PALATINE, IL: High Court Appeal Sought in Parking Ticket Case
-------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Collins has filed a motion asking the U.S. Supreme Court
for extension of the time to file a Petition for a Writ of
Certiorari.

Collins is seeking review by the High Court of the November 16,
2017, ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit
in the case, Michael COLLINS, on behalf of himself and all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. VILLAGE OF PALATINE,
ILLINOIS, Defendant-Appellee, No. 16-3395 (7th Cir.).

The Collins case is a successor class action to Senne v. Village
of Palatine, Case No. 10-cv-5434 (N.D. Ill.).

The Court of Appeals issued its opinion on November 16, 2017 and
denied a petition for rehearing en banc on December 13, 2017
(Case no. 16-3395). The Petition was initially due March 13,
2018.  Collins requests that the time to file a Petition for a
Writ of Certiorari be extended for 30 days to and including April
13, 2018.

On a summer day in June 2007, a police officer in the Village of
Palatine issued a parking ticket to Michael Collins. When Collins
returned to his car later that day, he found the bright yellow
ticket under his car's windshield wiper blades. The ticket listed
personal information about him, including his name, address,
driver's license number, date of birth, sex, height, and weight.
Collins claims that the display of his personal information
violated the Driver's Privacy Protection Act ("DPPA"), 18 U.S.C.
Sections 2721 et seq. So on March 29, 2016, he sued the Village
of Palatine on behalf of himself and a proposed class.

Ordinarily the long delay in filing suit-almost nine years-would
be fatal to his claim; the DPPA's statute of limitations is four
years. But the timeliness of Collins's claim is complicated by
the earlier filing of a nearly identical class complaint against
Palatine.

Jason Senne faced a similar ticketing scenario. He left his car
illegally parked overnight, and a Palatine police officer placed
a parking ticket displaying his personal information on the car's
windshield. On August 27, 2010, Senne sued on behalf of himself
and all similarly situated individuals alleging that Palatine
violated the DPPA. Because the lawsuit was brought as a class
action, the filing of the complaint tolled the DPPA's statute of
limitations for everyone in the proposed class.

Senne's case had a short life in the district court. On September
22, 2010, before Senne filed a motion to certify a class, the
district court granted Palatine's motion to dismiss for failure
to state a claim. A panel of the Seventh Circuit court affirmed
the dismissal, but the full court reheard the case and reversed.
See Senne v. Village of Palatine, 695 F.3d 597, 599-600 (7th Cir.
2012) (en banc).

On remand Senne moved to certify a class. The district judge
heard argument on the motion but deferred ruling, instead
inviting Palatine to file a motion for summary judgment. Palatine
complied. The judge entered summary judgment for the Village and
"terminated" the motion for class certification as moot. See
Senne v. Village of Palatine, 6 F.Supp.3d 786, 797 (N.D. Ill.
2013).  The Seventh Circuit affirmed, Senne v. Village of
Palatine, 784 F.3d 444 (7th Cir. 2015), and on November 2, 2015,
the Supreme Court denied certiorari, --- U.S. ----, 136 S.Ct.
419, 193 L.Ed.2d 318 (2015).

On the day the Supreme Court denied certiorari, Senne's attorney,
Martin Murphy, filed a successor class action on behalf of
himself and a proposed class. His complaint was just a
placeholder to preserve the class's claims. Murphy later filed
this suit naming Collins as the class representative; he then
sought voluntary dismissal of his own complaint.

Palatine moved to dismiss, arguing that Collins's claim was time-
barred because the statute of limitations resumed when the
district court dismissed Senne's lawsuit. Collins responded
(through Murphy, his counsel) that the dismissal on timeliness
grounds was inappropriate at the pleadings stage, and even if
procedurally proper, the suit was timely because the limitations
period was tolled until the Supreme Court denied Senne's petition
for certiorari. He also separately moved to certify a class.

The judge agreed with Palatine that Collins's claim was time-
barred and granted the motion to dismiss. The judge summarily
denied the motion for class certification, apparently on mootness
grounds, though he did not give a reason.  Another Seventh
Circuit appeal followed.

According to the Seventh Circuit, the limitations clock on
Collins's claim resumed when the Senne class action was dismissed
with prejudice prior to class certification. Accordingly, his
claim is time-barred. The judgment of the district court is
affirmed.

The request for extension was filed February 26, 2018.  Collins
cites these reasons for the extension:

     1. This case presents extraordinarily important issues
        warranting a carefully prepared Petition.

     2. The decision of the court of appeals is in direct
        conflict with the tolling rules announced by the Supreme
        Court in American Pipe and Crown Cork & Seal, where the
        High Court held that statute of limitations is tolled for
        all putative class members from the time a class action
        is filed until class certification is denied.

     3. If the new rule adopted by the Seventh Circuit is
        correct, then American Pipe, Crown Cork & Seal, and
        Campbell Ewald Co. v Gomez, were all moot before they
        reached the Supreme Court, because the statute of
        limitations would have run out.

     4. The Court should grant certiorari because the decision
        of the Court of Appeals involves an important question
        and conflicts with the decisions of this Court and other
        federal Courts of Appeals.

     5. Petitioner's counsel has been working with outside
        counsel with Supreme Court expertise to assist in this
        case. Additional time is necessary and warranted for that
        counsel to become familiar with the complicated record
        below and help frame the issues involved in this matter
        to narrow the arguments for the Supreme Court.

     6. No meaningful prejudice would arise from the extension,
        as the Supreme Court would hear oral argument and issue
        its opinion in the October 2018 Term regardless of
        whether an extension is granted.

Palatine is a village in Cook County, Illinois, United States. It
is a northwestern residential suburb of Chicago. [BN]

PILLPACK INC: Turner Sues over Unsolicited Text Messages & Calls
----------------------------------------------------------------
CHRISTINA TURNER, on behalf of herself, and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. PILLPACK, INC., the Defendant, Case
No. 5:18-cv-00066-TBR (W.D. Ky., May 8, 2018), seeks to recover
damages, injunctive relief, and any other available legal or
equitable remedies, resulting from the illegal actions of
Pillpack, Inc., in negligently, and/or willfully contacting
Plaintiff through text messages calls on her cellular telephone,
in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, thereby
invading her privacy.

The Defendant is an online pharmacy that maintains its corporate
headquarters at Commercial Street, Unit 2012, Manchester, NH,
03101. In a misguided effort to solicit business, the Defendant
routinely contacts potential customers through text messages with
automatic telephone dialing equipment. However, the Defendant
regularly sends these text message to cellular telephones,
without consent, let alone prior express written consent, in
violation of the TCPA.

The TCPA strictly forbids nuisance text messages exactly like
those alleged in this Complaint -- intrusive text messages to
private cellular phones, placed to numbers obtained without the
prior express consent of the recipients.  The Defendant's
violations cause Plaintiff and members of the Class of consumers
to experience actual harm, including aggravation, nuisance, and
invasion of privacy that necessarily accompanies the receipt of
unsolicited and harassing text message calls, as well as the
violation of their statutory rights.

The Plaintiff and members of the Class suffered a concrete injury
in fact, whether tangible or intangible, that is directly
traceable to Defendant's conduct, and is likely to be redressed
by a favorable decision in this action.[BN]

RO GALLERY: Rosenzweig Sues over Unsolicited Faxed Advertisements
-----------------------------------------------------------------
MONTE ROSENZWEIG and GOLD STANDARD AGENCY, INC., on behalf of
plaintiffs and the class members, the Plaintiffs, v. RO GALLERY
IMAGE MAKERS, INC., doing business as ROGALLERY.COM, and JOHN
DOES 1-10, the Defendants, Case No. 1:18-cv-02736 (E.D.N.Y. Fla.,
May 8, 2018), seeks to secure redress for the actions of
Defendants, in sending or causing the sending of unsolicited
advertisements to telephone facsimile machines in violation of
the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and New York General
Business Law.

The TCPA expressly prohibits unsolicited fax advertising.
Unsolicited fax advertising damages the recipients. The recipient
is deprived of its paper and ink or toner and the use of its fax
machine. The recipient also wastes valuable time it would have
spent on something else.

On March 28, 2018, plaintiffs received the unsolicited fax
advertisement. The Defendants are responsible for sending or
causing the sending of the fax. The Defendants as the entity
whose products or services were advertised in the fax, derived
economic benefit from the sending of the fax. The Defendants
either negligently or willfully violated the rights of plaintiff
and other recipients in sending the faxes. The Plaintiffs had no

SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS: Sued by Bronson over Defective Plasma TV
-------------------------------------------------------------
A class action lawsuit has been filed against Samsung Electronics
America, Inc. The case is captioned as Alexis Bronson,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated,
Plaintiff v. Samsung Electronics America, Inc., and Samsung
Electronics Co., Ltd., Defendants, Case No. 4:18-cv-2300-WHA
(N.D. Cal., April 17, 2018).

The Plaintiff alleges in the complaint that through a common and
uniform course of conduct, Samsung manufactured, supplied,
promoted, and sold Samsung plasma televisions when it knew or
should have known that these televisions would fail prematurely.
The televisions are defective in that they contain ill-suited,
under-graded and/or inadequate internal components, including
capacitors, which prematurely fail during normal operation of the
televisions. The condition of the Samsung plasma televisions at
the time of delivery results in the premature failure of the
televisions. These failures occur well before the end of their
expected useful life, and render the televisions unsuitable for
their principal and intended purpose.

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. supplies consumer electronics
and digital products in the United States. Samsung Electronics
America, Inc. has strategic alliances with Telkonet Inc.;
Medtronic plc; and Red Hat, Inc. The company was incorporated in

Defendants, Case No. 37-2018-00020897-CU-MC-CTL (Cal. Super.,
April 24, 2018) alleges that the Defendants conspire to harm and
deny the Plaintiffs' their rights and privileges by detaining
them.

According to the complaint, the Defendants detained the
Plaintiffs, who are minors, with the knowledge that the
Plaintiffs' Father had not failed to protect his children and all
his actions with said children were justified. The lawsuit says
the Defendants required the Plaintiffs' Father to sign a CWS
Safety Plan, to participate and complete certain programs, thus
creating an economic hardship for the Plaintiffs' Father. The
Plaintiffs' ability to be returned to their Father and visitation
with their Father was impaired and prevented by the actions of
the Defendants.

TARGET CORPORATION: Sued by Day over Starbucks Account
------------------------------------------------------
ROY A. DAY, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff v. TARGET CORPORATION, BRIAN C. CORNELL,
STARBUCKS CORPORATION, and JANDE DOE, Case No. 27-cv-18-5152
(Min. Dist., Hennepin Cty., March 29, 2018) alleges that
Starbucks's consumers are denied a fair and equitable deposit to
their Starbuck's account, specifically when the Defendants
misleadingly and deceptively deposit a fraudulent amount to a
Starbucks's consumers' account and subsequently issues a
misleading and deceptive receipt, in violation of the various
State Fraud Statutes, including the State of Minnesota, and the
State of Florida.

The complaint further states that the Defendants orchestrated a
scam to alter database files as associated with database fields
so the algorithm used provides the Defendants the opportunity to
embezzle a Starbucks's consumer, making a deposit to a Starbucks'
consumer account.

Target Corporation operates as a general merchandise retailer in
the United States. In addition, the company offers in-store
amenities, which comprise Target Cafe, Target Optical, Starbucks,
and other food service offerings. It sells its products through
its stores; and digital channels, including Target.com. As of
March 8, 2018, the company operated 1,826 stores. Target
Corporation was founded in 1902 and is headquartered in
Minneapolis, Minnesota. [BN]

THORATEC CORP: Court Certifies Class of Common Stock Purchasers
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled BRADLEY COOPER, Individually and on Behalf
of all Others Similarly Situated; and TODD LABAK, the Plaintiffs,
v. THORATEC CORPORATION; GERALD F. BURBACH; TAYLOR C. HARRIS; and
DAVID SMITH, the Defendants, Case No. 4:14-cv-00360-CW (N.D.
Cal.), the Hon. Judge Claudia Wilken entered an order certifying
a class of:

   "all persons or entities that purchased or otherwise acquired
   the common stock of Thoratec Corporation between May 11, 2011
   and August 6, 2014, both dates inclusive. Excluded from the
   Class are any parties who are or have been Defendants in this
   litigation, the present and former officers and directors of
   Thoratec and any subsidiary thereof, members of their
   immediate families and their legal representatives, heirs,
   successors or assigns and any entity in which any current or
   former Defendant has or had a controlling interest."

The Court said, "Plaintiffs argue that damages can be calculated
through an event study like that provided by their expert, Dr.
Nye, which quantifies Thoratec's per share price decline upon
disclosure of the fraud. Indeed, "[t]he event study method is an
accepted method for the evaluation of materiality damages to a
class of stockholders in a defendant corporation." In re Diamond
Foods, Inc. Sec. Litig., 295 F.R.D. 240, 251 (N.D. Cal. 2013)
(citing In re Imperial Credit Indus., Inc. Sec. Litig., 252 F.
Supp. 2d 1005, 1014 (C.D. Cal. 2003)). The Defendants argue that
this methodology is insufficient because it fails to take into
consideration what Defendants characterize as competing sets of
misrepresentations. For the same reasons that the Court rejected
Defendants' arguments regarding the November 27, 2013 publication
date, this argument too fails. The Court concludes that
Plaintiffs have sufficiently shown, at this stage, that damages
are capable of measurement on a classwide basis. For these
reasons, Plaintiffs have satisfied Rule 23(b)(3)'s requirements."

UNITED STATES: Faces Blue Cross Suit over Health Care Plan
----------------------------------------------------------
BLUE CROSS AND BLUE SHIELD OF NEBRASKA; AND HAWAI'I MEDICAL
SERVICE ASSOCIATION, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Plaintiffs v. THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
Defendant, Case No. 18-491C (Fed. Cl., April 3, 2018) alleges
failure of the Defendant to live up to its obligations under the
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

According to the complaint, the Patient Protection and Affordable
Care Act was passed by Congress in 2010 and made sweeping changes
in the U. S. health insurance market, many of which went into
effect in 2014. The law creates "Exchanges" on which individual
and small group health insurance are sold; the law eliminates
insurers' ability to deny coverage for sick individuals or charge
higher rates based on an individual's health condition; the law
also requires health insurers to cover certain types of benefits;
and, the law contains other reforms designed to increase
significantly the number of individuals with health insurance.

The United States of America (USA), commonly known as the United
States (U.S.) or America, is a federal republic composed of 50
states, a federal district, five major self-governing
territories, and various possessions. [BN]
