A+ BUILDING: Court Conditionally Certifies Class in "Perez"
-----------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Northern District of
Ohio, Western Division, granting, with modification, Plaintiffs'
Motion for Conditional Class Certification in the case captioned
Byron Perez, et al., Plaintiffs, v. A+ Building Maintenance and
Home Repair, LLC, et al., Defendants, Case No. 3:17CV01261 (N.D.
Ohio).

This is an employment action for unpaid wages under the Fair
Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Byron Perez and Nicholas Foley accuse
their former employer A+ Building Maintenance and Home Repair,
LLC (A+) of misclassifying them as exempt employees and
withholding overtime wages in violation of state and federal fair
wage laws. Further, they allege upon information and belief that
the defendants applied the same pay practices and policies to
their co-workers.

Perez and Foley move to certify a class of all current and former
service technicians, general laborers, or other employees of
Defendants who performed general labor and worked over 40 hours
in any workweek, beginning three years immediately preceding the
filing of the Complaint in the present action.

Employee Handbook and Paystubs

The A+ employee handbook declares that only employees whose
positions meet the specific criteria established by the Fair
Labor Standards Act are exempt from overtime pay requirements, a
statement the plaintiffs concede appears facially compliant with
the Act.

An FLSA exemption for a salaried employee is not lost if the
exempt employee, who is guaranteed a predetermined weekly pay of
at least $455, also receives compensation based on hours worked
beyond the normal workweek, including compensation on a straight-
time hourly basis. And according to Havens' paystubs, the
defendants did, at times, pay him additional compensation for
performing additional work or extra tasks, such as snow removal
during winter months.

Because neither the employee handbook, nor Havens' paystubs
establish a colorable basis to believe that the plaintiffs and
other employees were similarly situated and suffered from a
common policy that violated the FLSA, the Court disregards this
evidence in determining whether to grant the plaintiffs' motion
for conditional certification.

Employee Declarations

As for the employee declarations, the defendants urge the Court
to disregard this evidence as well, because they include only
vague and generalized references regarding the pay policies the
defendants applied to other A+ employees.

Even if the Court agrees that these prospective class members
fall short in demonstrating personal knowledge of their co-
workers' wages and hours, Perez and Foley are not relying on a
single employee's experience to prove that other A+ employees
have been subject to similar FLSA violations. They are relying on
the experiences of three different employees: Perez, Foley, and
Havens. Each indisputably has personal knowledge of his own wages
and hours, even if he cannot speak for others.

Thus, while the Defendants spend much of their time arguing that
the statements from the putative class members do not establish
violations for other employees, their testimony as to their own
experiences would likely be sufficient to grant conditional
certification and send notice to members of the class who were
subject to the same unwritten policies.

The O'Brien Factors

First among the O'Brien (O'Brien v. Ed Donnelly Enters., Inc.,
575 F.3d 567, 584 (6th Cir. 2009)) factors is the factual and
employment settings of the individual plaintiffs.

Perez and Foley estimate that the proposed class will include
approximately 35 to 50 similarly situated individuals with
potential overtime claims against the defendants. The Defendants
place the number lower, estimating a class of 12 to 36 current or
former employees.

Still, even if the defendants are correct, certification of a
small putative class satisfies the policy behind FLSA collective
actions and Congress's remedial intent by consolidating many
small, related claims of employees for which proceeding
individually would be too costly to be practical.

Objections to Disclosure of Putative Class Members

Lastly, the defendants mount a vague objection to the
overreaching breadth of the information sought by the Plaintiffs
regarding the potential class members. Carpenter and A + insist
all that is necessary for purposes of the issuance of such notice
is the necessary contact information, including the names of the
class employees and former employees, their last known addresses
email addresses, and, possibly, dates of employment.

Yet this, however, is all the plaintiffs' request: a list of all
potential class members including their names, positions of
employment, last-known mailing addresses, last-known telephone
numbers, email addresses, work locations, and dates of
employment. Insofar as the defendants object to disclosing
positions of employment or work locations, they do not explain
how such disclosures would impose an unreasonable burden.

Accordingly, the Plaintiffs' motion for conditional class
certification pursuant to 29 U.S.C. Section 216(b) is granted as
modified.

The following class is conditionally certified:

     Any current and former service technicians, general
laborers, or other employees of Defendants who responded to
service calls, and performed miscellaneous general labor for
residential and commercial buildings including installing
appliances, plumbing, remodeling, performing landscaping work and
electrical maintenance, and worked over forty hours in any
workweek from June 15, 2014 through the present.

Intervenor Theodore H. Frank filed an appeal from a court ruling
in the lawsuit titled Jorge Alcarez v. Akorn, Inc., et al., Case
No. 1:17-cv-05017, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of Illinois, Eastern Division.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the lawsuit
alleges that the Defendants issued materially deficient and
misleading preliminary proxy statement on a Schedule 14A in
relation to an attempt to sell the Company to Fresenius Kabi AG.
The case avers that the proxy statement is materially deficient
and misleading because, inter alia, it fails to disclose material
information regarding the Company's financial projections; GAAP
reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures contained in
the Company's projections, which were prepared by Company
management and relied upon by J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, the
Company's financial advisor; the financial analysis performed by
J.P. Morgan to support its opinion on the fairness of the
Proposed Transaction and the background of the Proposed
Transaction.

AKORN INC: Frank Seeks 7th Cir. Review of Ruling in "Harris" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Intervenor Theodore H. Frank filed an appeal from a court ruling
in the lawsuit titled Sean Harris v. Akorn, Inc., et al., Case
No. 1:17-cv-05021, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of Illinois, Eastern Division.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the Company
entered into on April 24, 2017, an Agreement and Plan of Merger
with Fresenius Kabi AG, a German stock corporation ("Parent"),
Quercus Acquisition, Inc., a Louisiana corporation and wholly
owned subsidiary of Parent ("Merger Sub") and, solely for
purposes of Article VIII thereof, Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA, a
German partnership limited by shares.  The Merger Agreement,
which has been adopted by the Board of Directors of the Company,
provides for the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company
(the "Merger"), with the Company surviving the Merger as a wholly
owned subsidiary of Parent.

The Harris Action and other similar lawsuits alleged that the
Company's preliminary proxy statement, filed with the SEC on May
22, 2017, relating to the merger transaction, omits material
information with respect to the merger, rendering it false and
misleading and thus that the Company and the directors of the
Company violated Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act as well as SEC
Rule 14a-9.  The Actions further alleged that the directors of
the Company violated Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act.

The appellate case is captioned as Sean Harris v. Akorn, Inc., et
al., Case No. 18-2221, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the
Seventh Circuit.

The briefing schedule in the Appellate Case is set as follows:

ALLEGHENY, PA: Yates Seeks Unpaid Wages under FLSA
--------------------------------------------------
WILLIAM YATES, on behalf of themselves and all similarly situated
employees, the Plaintiffs, v. ALLEGHENY COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA, the
Defendant, Case No. 2:18-cv-00831-DSC (W.D. Pa., June 21, 2018),
seeks to recover damages for non-payment wages under the Fair
Labor Standards Act of 1938, the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act,
and the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law.

According to the complaint, the Defendant did not guarantee a

He was paid strictly on an hourly basis for hours worked. If
Plaintiff worked fewer hours than his normal work week of 40
hours, and did not have compensatory time or Paid Time Off (PTO)
for payment of the hours not worked, he would be paid only for
hours actually worked pursuant to Defendant's stated policy. The
Plaintiff regularly worked in excess of 40 hours a week. The
Plaintiff was paid no overtime compensation for hours worked over
40 in the pay for the week in which they were worked.

Allegheny County is a county in the southwest of the U.S. state
of Pennsylvania. As of 2016 the population was 1,225,365, making
it the state's second-most populous county, following

ANN INC: Sweeney Appeals Ruling in "Morrow" Suit to 2nd Circuit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Pamela A. Sweeney filed an appeal from a District Court order
entered on April 25, 2018, in the lawsuit styled Siobhan Morrow
and Ashley Gennock, et al. v. Ann Inc., et al., Case No. 16-cv-
3340, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New
York (New York City).

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, fashion
retailer Ann Taylor has settled the false discounting class
action alleging that prices at its outlet stores were listed as
"marked down" from prices that never applied to the items.  The
Plaintiffs claim they were misled into believing they were
getting a large discount, and would not have made the purchase if
they knew the items were not heavily discounted.

The settlement has received preliminary approval from District
Judge Paul Oetken, and provides both monetary and injunctive
relief to a class of more than a million consumers, who purchased
one or more items between May 5, 2012, and May 4, 2016, from Ann
Taylor Factory and LOFT Outlet stores.

The appellate case is captioned as Morrow v. Ascena Retail Group,
Inc., Case No. 18-1549, in the United States Court of Appeals for
the Second Circuit.

Appellant Pamela A. Sweeney, of Madison, Wisconsin, appears pro
se.[BN]

AQUA BEST: Anzures Seeks Unpaid Minimum & OT under FLSA
-------------------------------------------------------
JUAN PABLO BARRETO ANZURES, individually and on behalf of others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. AQUA BEST, INC. (D/B/A AQUA
BEST, INC.), ZEE YING CHAN WONG, STEVEN WONG, FREEMAN D. WONG,
and DENIS DOE, the Defendants, Case No. 1:18-cv-05753 (S.D.N.Y.,
June 25, 2018), seeks to recover unpaid minimum and overtime
wages pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York
Labor Law.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff worked for Defendants
in excess of 40 hours per week, without appropriate minimum wage,
overtime, and spread of hours compensation for the hours that he
worked. Rather, Defendants failed to maintain accurate record-
keeping of the hours worked, failed to pay Plaintiff
appropriately for any hours worked, either at the straight rate
of pay or for any additional overtime premium. Further, the
Defendants failed to pay Plaintiff the required "spread of hours"
pay for any day in which he had to work over 10 hours a day.
Furthermore, Defendants repeatedly failed to pay Plaintiff wages
on a timely basis. The Defendants employed and accounted for
Plaintiff as a delivery worker in their payroll, but in actuality
his duties required a significant amount of time spent performing
the alleged nontipped duties.[BN]

AUDIBLE INC: Seeks Ninth Circuit Review of Ruling in "McKee" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Defendant Audible, Inc., filed an appeal from a court ruling in
the lawsuit entitled Grant McKee, et al. v. Audible, Inc., Case
No. 2:17-cv-01941-GW-E, in the U.S. District Court for the
Central District of California, Los Angeles.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the lawsuit
was transferred to the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York (Foley Square) on Dec. 15, 2017.  The New
York District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 1:17-cv-09838-AJN to
the proceeding.

The Plaintiff brings this lawsuit on behalf of a proposed Class
of consumers who find themselves trapped in a shell game created
by the online audiobook seller Audible, and its parent company
Amazon.  When he and other consumers signed up for an audiobook
purchasing plan with Audible, styled a "membership," Mr. McKee
and other consumers relied on Defendants' representations and
believed that, on a monthly or annual basis, they would purchase
a certain number of prepaid "credits" that could be redeemed with
Audible for an equivalent number of audiobooks.  The Plaintiff
and these consumers also believed Defendants' representations
that "one credit equals one audiobook," that audiobook credits
would "never expire," and that a member can cancel any time with
"no strings attached."  But the Defendants' advertisements
represent almost the exact opposite of how Audible membership
plans really work.

The appellate case is captioned as Grant McKee, et al. v.
Audible, Inc., Case No. 18-55595, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.[BN]

BIG TREE HOMES: Ames Sues over Unsafe and Unsanitary Housing
------------------------------------------------------------
JESSICA AMES, individually and on behalf of all similarly
situated persons, the Plaintiff, v. SARGON ISAAC, individually
and d/b/a "SI Properties" and/or "Simla Properties," and BIG TREE
HOMES, LLC, the Defendants, Case No. 2018-CH-07811 (Ill. Cir.
Ct., Cook Cty., June 21, 2018), seeks to stop Sargon Isaac's
racism, and compel him to provide to his tenants the equitable,
safe, and sanitary housing required by the law.

According to the complaint, Sargon Isaac is a slumlord with an
empire of crumbling properties across Chicago and Evanston. He
rents damaged houses and apartments which are barely habitable,
if at all. Most, if not all, of his properties have infestations,
mold problems, water damage, and/or sewage leaks. He doesn't fix
those problems, though -- instead, he simply demands rent. And if
his tenants withhold rent based on the conditions in the
apartment, or complain repeatedly about those conditions, Sargon
evicts them. He's filed dozens of evictions in the last 18
months, representing himself in most of them. But Sargon is more
than a slumlord. Sargon doesn't return security deposits, doesn't
pay security deposit interest, and on move-out charges tenants to
fix problems which existed when they moved in. But he will repair
the problems in the units of his white tenants. He will work with
his white tenants if they fall behind on rent. But if the tenant
is a person of color, Sargon harasses them, refusing to make
repairs and charging hundreds of dollars for the few repairs he
does make.[BN]

BIOGEN INC: Seeks 1st Cir. Review of Ruling in Metzler Asset Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Defendants Biogen, Inc., Paul J. Clancy, Stuart A. Kingsley and
George A. Scangos filed an appeal from a court ruling in the
lawsuit entitled Metzler Asset Mgmt., et al. v. Kingsley, et al.,
Case No. 1:16-cv-12101-FDS, in the U.S. District Court for the
District of Massachusetts, Boston.

The appellate case is captioned as Metzler Asset Mgmt., et al. v.
Kingsley, et al., Case No. 18-1472, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the First Circuit.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter on May 25,
2018, Judge F. Dennis Saylor, IV, granted the Defendants' motion
to dismiss the case.

The lawsuit is a putative class action involving alleged
violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  Lead
Plaintiffs Metzler Asset Management GmbH and Erste-Sparinvest
Kapitalanlagegesellschaft mbH have brought suit, on behalf of a
class of similarly situated persons, against biopharmaceutical
company Biogen and three Biogen executives.  The Plaintiffs
contend that the class members were harmed when they purchased
Biogen's common stock at prices that were artificially inflated
by the Company's materially misleading statements and omissions
about Tecfidera, its leading multiple sclerosis drug.

The amended complaint relies heavily on statements by 17 former
Biogen employees acting as confidential witnesses.  The amended
complaint alleges that the Defendants withheld material
information about Tecfidera's safety profile and declining
Tecfidera sales, and made misleading positive statements about
future revenue.  It further asserts that several Biogen
executives made 31 materially false misrepresentations and
omissions during various earnings calls and conferences over a
one-year period between July 23, 2014, and July 23, 2015.[BN]

CATALINA RESTAURANT: Wins $16K Attys' Fees in "Farrar" WARN Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Central District of
California granted Defendants' Motion for Attorney's Fees and
Costs in the case captioned JERI FARRAR, and others similarly
situated, Plaintiffs, v. CATALINA RESTAURANT GROUP, INC. and FOOD
MANAGEMENT PARTNERS, INC., Defendants, Case No. 16-cv-09066 DDP
(JCx) (C.D. Cal.).

The Plaintiffs brought a putative class action against Defendants
Catalina Restaurant Group, Inc., and Food Management Partners,
Inc., for violations of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining
Notification Act (WARN Act),and the California WARN Act, Cal.
Lab. Code Sections 1400-1408, both resulting from an April 2015
reduction in force at Catalina Restaurant Group's corporate
headquarters.

The Plaintiffs allege for the first time that the lack of
additional payroll records produced by the Defendants in
discovery for the period after May 27, 2015, means that all 53
employees were subsequently terminated. The Plaintiffs did not
specifically propound this theory at the motion for summary
judgment stage. Although the Plaintiffs alluded to the fact that
operations at Catalina's corporate headquarters had wound down,
they did not introduce evidence that the remaining employees were
terminated, rather than transferred, or that these terminations
occurred within the requisite 90-day period. Instead, the
Plaintiffs advanced the argument that all53 employees were
terminated between April 1 and April 24, 2015.

The Defendants counter that in every summary judgment case, it
turns out that even after discovery the losing party had no
factual evidence to support his claim.That misstates the legal
standard, the Court says.  Summary judgment may be entered when
the evidence is insufficient to create a genuine dispute of
material fact or when, as here, the plaintiffs proffer no
evidence in support of material facts called into dispute by the
defendants.

At the close of discovery, the Plaintiffs had uncovered no
evidentiary foundation for their claim that all 53 employees had
been terminated during the April 2015 reduction in force. A claim
is frivolous only when the result is obvious or the arguments of
error are wholly without merit. In light of the record presented
at the close of discovery, the court's resulting grant of summary
judgment on the Plaintiffs' WARN Act claims was an obvious
result. Accordingly, the court awards reasonable attorneys' fees
to the Defendants limited to the preparation of the motion for
summary judgment.

Here, the parties agree that the Defendants have prevailed on
their WARN Act claims. The only dispute that remains is what
constitutes a reasonable fee award. The court finds, and the
Plaintiffs do not dispute, that the rates set forth by the
Defendants' counsel are within the range of reasonable rates for
attorneys in the local community, taking into consideration the
experience, skill, and reputation of the attorney.

Although the Plaintiffs do not object to any specific billing
entries, they claim that much of the briefing used in the motion
for summary judgment is duplicative of that in an earlier case.
The court agrees. With the primary exception of a brief summary
of the Ross case, the memoranda and declarations in support of
the Defendants' summary judgment motions in both cases are nearly
identical. For this reason, the court imposes a reduction of 8
hours to time billed by Ms. Moffit in connection with the
preparation of the moving papers.

Additionally, as to the preparation of the reply brief, the court
imposes a reduction of 5 hours to time billed by Mr. Liu, 6.2
hours to time billed by Mr. Johnson, and 2 hours to time billed
by Mr. Skeen. Finally, the court deducts 4 hours from the time
spent preparing and attending the hearing by Mr. Skeen, and
deducts 3.5 hours from the time spent preparing and attending the
hearing by Mr. Johnson, as this work is duplicative of the tasks
performed by Mr. Skeen. In view of the frivolous arguments
advanced in the Plaintiff's opposition brief, the court finds
that these adjustments reflect the reduced number of hours
reasonably expended by counsel in preparing a reply.

Applying the approved rates to the adjusted hours, the court
finds that the lodestar method yields the following result:

                    Reasonable
   Attorney           Rate       Hours    Lodestar
   --------         ----------   -----    --------
  Spencer Skeen        $310        9.1      $2,821
  Tim Johnson          $310        3.6      $1,116
  Marlene Moffit       $310        2.7        $837
  Jonathan Liu         $240       10.9      $2,616

  Total                                     $7,390

To the extent that the Defendants seek taxable costs, they are
directed to file an appropriate application with the Clerk of
Court. Accordingly, the court grants the Defendants leave to file
an application for taxable costs with the Clerk.

The court grants Defendants' motion for attorneys' fees in the
amount of $16,819.

judgment dated April 18, 2018, entered in the lawsuit titled Katz
v. Cellco Partnership, Case No. 12-cv-9193, in the U.S. District
Court for the Southern District of New York (White Plains).

The appellate case is captioned as Katz v. Cellco Partnership,
Case No. 18-1436, in the United States Court of Appeals for the
Second Circuit.[BN]

CENTENE CORP: Faces Class Suit for Fibrosis Treatment Coverage
--------------------------------------------------------------
M.D., C.F., and E.M., individually and on behalf of a class of
similarly situated persons, the Plaintiffs, v. CENTENE
CORPORATION, INC. and CENTENE MANAGEMENT COMPANY, LLC., the
Defendants, Case No. 1:18-cv-22372-JLK (S.D. Fla., June 13,
2018), seeks equitable, injunctive, and declaratory relief as may
be appropriate, including restitution and/or requiring Defendants
to provide coverage to Plaintiffs and Class Members for medically
necessary treatment.

In June 2016, the Agency for Healthcare Administration, which is
responsible for the administration of Florida's Medicaid program,
removed all fibrosis restrictions and required all insurance
providers that administer Florida's Medicaid managed care program
to similarly remove any such restrictions. Incredibly, against
this backdrop, and more than three years after the FDA approved
the first of the breakthrough treatments, Centene, through its
subsidiary CMC, has created, and is still requiring its
subsidiaries to enforce, the same roundly-condemned fibrosis
restrictions to deny coverage for the Cure, on the pretextual
basis that the Cure is not medically necessary until and unless
an insured has suffered and demonstrated severe and irreparable
liver fibrosis or cirrhosis. Centene and CMC are enforcing these
restrictions across the nation, causing Plaintiffs' and the Class
Members' insurers, including Celtic, to breach their promise to
pay for medically necessary treatment. These fibrosis
restrictions deviate from the standard of care in the medical
community, and are being used to materially and directly breach
the uniform, contractual promise of Plaintiffs' and Class
Members' insurers to provide medically necessary treatment.
Accordingly, Plaintiffs and the Class Members bring this class
action against Centene and CMC to force them to discontinue use
of the fibrosis restrictions, so that thousands of insureds
across the nation can get cured.

Since October 2014, pharmaceutical companies began marketing what
the U.S. Food & Drug Association hailed as "breakthrough"
treatments using direct-acting antiviral ("DAA") drugs. These
"breakthrough" treatments do not require use of Interferon and
work by directly attacking the hepatitis C virus and eradicating
it from the body. These drugs have an astounding cure rate of 94%
to 100%, with little to no side effects. A patient need take only
one pill daily for eight to twelve weeks (depending on the viral
load in the body), to eliminate the virus from the body--forever.
In October 2014, the FDA approved the first of these drugs,
Harvoni, which was soon followed by others, including Viekira
Pak, Epclusa, Zepatier, and Mavyret (collectively, the "Cure").

Hepatitis C is a deadly disease that attacks the liver and causes
liver deterioration. It is the number one cause of liver cancer
in the United States, as well as the number one reason for liver
transplants. The disease's typical progression begins with
inflammation of the liver and proceeds to cause irreparable
scarring (fibrosis) of the liver and ultimately cirrhosis of the
liver.[BN]

day opt-out period, opts out of the disclosure by returning the

CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS: Swain Sues over Suppression of Pay
----------------------------------------------------------
YVONNE SWAIN, individually, and on behalf of similarly situated
others, the Plaintiff, v. CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS, INC., the
Defendant, Case No. 1:18-cv-00499 (W.D. Tex., June 13, 2018),
alleges that Defendant has subjected Plaintiff and other
similarly situated employees to unwarranted suppression of pay,
professional development, and promotions; discriminatory career
and development opportunities and promotion denials;
discriminatory policies and procedures that have a disparate
impact on female and Black employees generally; lower pay for
work requiring substantially equal skill, effort, and
responsibility; and other adverse terms and conditions of
employment.

According to the complaint, the Defendant has long been aware of
the systematic, pervasive discriminatory practices prevalent
within its organization, but has failed to take remedial measures
to prevent or correct them. Indeed, even after it was notified of
Plaintiff's claims by Plaintiff, and, secondarily, the Equal
Employment Opportunity Commission, and although it knew of the
obvious gender and race-based pay disparities, Defendant failed
to correct such disparities. Consequently, Defendant has
intentionally violated the EPA and Title VII, extending the Equal
Pay Act's statute of limitations to three years, and subjecting
Defendant to enhanced damages.

COLONIAL FREIGHT: Court Partly Grants Opt-In Notice in "Benyam"
---------------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Eastern District of
Tennessee, Knoxville, granted in part and denied in part
Plaintiffs' Motion to Approve Notice and Opt-in Procedures in the
case captioned THEODUS DAVIS, on behalf of himself and those
similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. COLONIAL FREIGHT SYSTEMS,
INC., et al., Defendants, No. 3:16-CV-674-TRM-HBG (E.D. Tenn.).

The Plaintiffs allege that the Defendants erroneously classified
him and those similarly situated as independent contractors and
unlawfully deducted and withheld their wages in violation of the
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The Plaintiffs allege that the
Defendants required him and those who are similarly situated to
attend the Defendants' driver-trainee program without providing
wages that were free and clear and further required them to cover
the costs of the Defendants' businesses, intentionally reducing
their wages below the minimum wage.

The parties have submitted competing notice forms with respect to
the FLSA collective action and the Rule 23 class action. Because
the parties indicated at the hearing that they could resolve
several disputes that were presented in their filings, the Court
will only summarize the primary contentions between the parties:
(1) methods of notice, (2) duration of opt-in period, and (3) the
applicable class and collective action definitions.

Separate or Hybrid Notice

The Plaintiffs propose that the class action notice be sent after
the opt-in period has expired. In support of their argument, the
Plaintiffs emphasize the differences between collective actions
and class actions and argue that sending notices of the actions
simultaneously will likely confuse the potential members.
The Defendants propose sending a hybrid notice, explaining that
any potential confusion can be overcome by careful wording and
thoughtful organization.

The Court has considered the parties' positions and finds that
the better course of action is to send the notices separately. In
so finding, the Court has considered the Defendants' concerns of
inefficiency versus the Plaintiffs' concerns of confusion. While
efficiency is important, the Court finds that the three-month
delay in sending the class action notice will not prejudice any
party.

Accordingly, the Court finds that sending separate notices in
this particular case will further the underlying purpose of the
notice process, which is simply to advise individuals of their
rights with respect to each action.

Methods of Service

The Plaintiffs have requested several methods of service,
including first-class mail, email, announcements over Defendant's
Qualcomm system, and a reminder postcard and email. The
Defendants argue that the Plaintiffs' proposed methods are
duplicative and unnecessary.

The Court has also considered the Plaintiffs' request to send
messages via Defendant's Qualcomm system and to send reminder
postcards and emails. The Court is unconvinced that these
additional methods of notice are necessary in this case. While
the Plaintiffs assert that truck drivers are transitory in
nature, the Court finds first-class mail and email notifications,
coupled with a longer opt-in period, are sufficient to advise
members of their rights without encouraging members to join the
suit or giving the impression that the Court approves the suit on
its merits.

Accordingly, the Court declines to order Defendant Colonial to
send messages via its Qualcomm system and further finds that
reminder postcards and emails are not necessary in this case.

Duration of Opt-In Period

The Plaintiffs request an opt-in period of 120 days given the
difficulties in contacting truck drivers. The Plaintiffs state
that commercial truck drivers often spend several consecutive
weeks or months on the road away from home.

The Defendants respond that a 60-day opt-in period is more
appropriate and that district courts within the Sixth Circuit
have repeatedly utilized a 60-day opt-in period for potential
FLSA plaintiffs.

The Court has considered the parties' arguments and finds 120
days to be excessive and 60 days to be insufficient under these
circumstances. Specifically, the Court finds that the Plaintiffs
have raised legitimate concerns that putative plaintiffs will not
receive notice given the nature of their job. Accordingly, the
Court finds that given this valid concern, the opt-in period
shall be ninety (90) days.

Class and Collective Action Definitions

The Plaintiffs assert that their definitions of the class and
collective actions, along with the time periods, are correct.

The Court has considered the definitions and finds that the
Defendants' description of the potential members is accurate.
With respect to both the collective and class actions, the
District Judge relied on the Independent Contractor Operating
Agreements to define the actions. For instance, in determining
whether class certification was appropriate, the District Judge
explained how liability can be determined on a class-wide basis
that is, by determining whether the ICOAs (Independent Contractor
Operating Agreements) violate the TIL (Truth in Lending)
regulations.

Similarly, with respect to the FLSA groups, the Court finds that
Driver-Trainees were similarly situated because they were
required to sign the Independent Contractor/Trainee Agreement and
that the Phoenix-Lease Drivers entered into materially similar
Lease Agreements and Independent Contractor Trainee/Agreements.

Accordingly, the Court finds Defendants' descriptions accurately
reflect the class and collective actions.

COLONIAL PARKING: Class Certification Denied as Moot in "Abraha"
----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court, District of Columbia, denied
Plaintiffs' Motion for Class Certification in the case captioned
Berthe Benyam Abraha, et al., Plaintiffs, v. Colonial Parking,
Inc., et al., Defendants, Civil Action No. 16-680 (CKK) (D.D.C.).

Plaintiffs Berthe Benyam Abraha, Esayas Akalu, Samuel Habtewoled,
and Gedlu Melke seek to certify a class in this action against
Defendants Colonial Parking, Inc. and FCE Benefit Administrators,
Inc.  FCE agrees that a class should be certified, and Colonial
effectively concedes as much.

In their Complaint, the Plaintiffs proposed that the class
include all persons who were employed by Colonial from 2010
through the present for whom Colonial or FEC maintained a DUB
Account administered by FEC. Now they seek to include any person
who was entitled to a benefit from the Forge Health and Welfare
Plan at any time from January 1, 2002, through December 31, 2015.

The Plaintiffs argue that this expanded definition is warranted
by their finding, during discovery, that the Defendants engaged
in numerous acts of fraudulent concealment and that many of them
affected National Institutes of Health (NIH)] employees who
received distributions prior to 2010.

In response to the statute of limitations arguments of the
Defendants, the Plaintiffs maintain that the last action, for
purposes of 29 U.S.C. Section 1113, occurred in December 2015;
that recent Supreme Court precedent renders the Defendants'
defense off limits; and that the Plaintiffs may avail themselves
of the fraud and concealment exception to the statute of
limitations.

For those claims as to which Colonial does supply a proposed
definition, Colonial may be agreeing with the Plaintiffs (but not
FCE) when Colonial argues that the appropriate individuals be
Participants in the Forge Health and Welfare Plan. But Colonial
limits its proposal only to those who were entitled to a DUB
benefit distribution and who received it within the proposed
statute of limitations.

Colonial does not make clear, for example, (1) how a limitation
to Participants in the Forge Health and Welfare Plan differs from
that of former Colonial employees; or (2) why the Forge Health
and Welfare Plan is the more appropriate benchmark than the NIH
contract. Colonial does make some attempt to explain why the
Court should adopt language of entitlement and receipt, rather
than participation in, the relevant program, though even that
explanation is rather thin.

In addition, the Court finds that all parties have failed to
specifically brief the Rule 23 standards with the adequacy
necessary to facilitate the Court's decision. The Plaintiffs are
so summary in their treatment of some of the applicable standards
that, for example, they attempt to prove that they adequately
represent putative class members simply by stating that the
Plaintiffs stepped forward to bring this lawsuit on behalf of
their fellow employees and are very aware of the responsibilities
that that entails, and making a few observations about their
counsel's experience. For their part, the Defendants do not
address each of the Rule 23 standards with specificity.

Further Proceedings in This Case

In responding to a motion for leave to amend the Complaint, the
Defendants should raise any prejudice but should bear in mind the
generous standard by which the Court must assess any proposed,
pre-trial amendment under the Federal Rules. Accordingly, the
Court says the Defendants should not base any decision to oppose
amendment on their statute of limitations defenses. There will be
one or more subsequent opportunities to raise those defenses in
briefing motions under different standards that would properly
put the statute of limitations issue before this Court.

Accordingly, FCE's Motion to Strike Evidence Submitted by the
Plaintiffs in Support of the Plaintiffs' Motion for Class
Certification, contained within FCE's filing, is denied as moot.

The parties are directed to file a Joint Status, indicating
whether the Plaintiffs will take the opportunity to file a motion
for leave to amend the Complaint, whether the Defendants intend
to oppose that motion, and what briefing timeline the parties
would propose.

CONN APPLIANCES: Appeals Decision in "Williams" Suit to 5th Cir.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Defendant Conn Appliances, Incorporated, filed an appeal from a
court ruling in the lawsuit styled Michaeline Williams v. Conn
Appliances, Incorporated, Case No.  5:17-CV-1264, in the U.S.
District Court for the Western District of Texas, San Antonio.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the lawsuit
seeks to enjoin CAI from placing any further telephone calls to
Mrs. Williams and the class in violation of the Telephone
Consumer Protection Act.

According to the complaint, CAI has a practice of hoarding as
many potentially valid phone numbers for a particular account as
possible.  CAI routinely uses the System to call more than one or
all of these hoarded numbers which have become associated with a
customer's account, including cell phone numbers, even when the
number does not belong to the customer or a co-borrower.  In
addition to entering telephone numbers for non-customers into
credit applications that its employees learn of during the sales
or collections process, CAI has a practice of identifying phone
numbers from public or commercial databases that it believes, but
does not know to be, valid numbers for its customers using a
practice known as skip-tracing.

The appellate case is captioned as Michaeline Williams v. Conn
Appliances, Incorporated, Case No. 18-50371, in the U.S. Court of
Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.[BN]

CRAZY HORSE: Degidio Files Waiver to Respond to Supreme Ct. Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Petitions for a writ of certiorari were filed on April 19, 2018,
and Alexis Degidio submitted a waiver of right to respond on May
21, 2018, in the lawsuit titled CRAZY HORSE SALOON AND RESTAURANT
INC., d/b/a THEE NEW DOLLHOUSE, Petitioner v. ALEXIS DEGIDIO,
INDIVIDUALLY AND ON BEHALF OF ALL OTHERS SIMILARLY SITUATED,
Respondent, Case No. 17-1573, in the Supreme Court of United
States.

The Lower Court case is entitled ALEXIS DEGIDIO, INDIVIDUALLY AND
ON BEHALF OF ALL OTHERS SIMILARLY SITUATED v. CRAZY HORSE SALOON
AND RESTAURANT INC., d/b/a THEE NEW DOLLHOUSE, Case No. 17-1145,
in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the lawsuit
alleges violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The Defendant-Petitioner presented this question: Did the Court
of Appeals err when it found that the District Court could refuse
to enforce arbitration agreements entered into between the
Petitioner, Crazy Horse Saloon and Restaurant, Inc. ("Crazy
Horse") and Entertainers when the evidence does not show that
those agreements were obtained in a misleading or coercive
manner?

Respondent Alexis Degidio, who had no arbitration agreement,
instituted the proceedings by filing a complaint for a putative
Fair Labor Standards Act collective action and Rule 23 class
action based on state wage claims.  Petitioner Crazy Horse filed
a Motion to Compel Arbitration for nine individuals, who filed
Consents to Join the collective action but had previously
executed arbitration agreements with Petitioner.  The District
Court denied Petitioner Crazy Horse's motion to compel
arbitration for those nine individuals.  Crazy Horse appealed to
the Fourth Circuit pursuant to the statute allowing appeals
regarding compelling arbitration.  However, the Fourth Circuit
first denied the Petitioner's appeal and then its En Banc
Petition on February 22, 2018.[BN]

DANONE NORTH: "Brown" Suit Over False Labeling of Milk Dismissed
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Jon S. Tigar of the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of California granted the Defendants' motion to dismiss
the case, CRYSTAL BROWN, Plaintiff, v. DANONE NORTH AMERICA, LLC,
et al., Defendants, Case No. 17-cv-07325-JST (N.D. Cal.).

Brown purchased several varieties of Horizon Organic milk
approximately once a week between January 2015 through January
2016.  Prior to purchasing the milk, Brown read the Defendants'
labels.  She purchased the milk in reliance on the labels'
indication that the milk was organic.  The labels clearly state
that the milk is "organic" and that the milk contains DHA, and
the labels bear the United States Department of Agriculture
("USDA") organic certification logo.

Brown describes the milk in her complaint as certified organic.
The USDA database publicly shows that Horizon Organic milk with
DHA is currently certified organic by the USDA, and has been so
since 2013.  Horizon Organic milk is more expensive that non-
organic milk.  Brown alleges that the milk is not organic because
it contains DHA, a nutritional additive.  According to Brown,
only certain nutritional additives, not including DHA, may be
added to organic food products.  Therefore, Brown alleges that
the Defendants' labeling and advertising of Horizon Organic milk
as organic is false and misleading.  She would not have purchased
the products or would not have paid the price she paid, had she
known the milk was not organic.

Defendant WWF Operating Co. ("WhiteWave"), erroneously sued as
WhiteWave Foods Co., produces and sells different varieties of
Horizon Organic milk. ECF No. WhiteWave is a subsidiary of
Danone.  Horizon Organic's market share of the organic milk
market exceeds 40 percent.

Brown's putative class action complaint alleges that the
Defendants violated California's Unfair Competition Law ("UCL").
Specifically, Brown alleges that the Defendants committed: (1)
unlawful business practices, (2) unfair business practices, (3)
fraudulent business practices all by making misrepresentations
and material omissions.  She also alleges that the Defendants
fraudulently violated the California Consumers Legal Remedies Act
("CLRA") by knowingly and falsely representing the milk as
organic.

The Defendants now move to dismiss Brown's complaint.  They argue
that the Plaintiff's claims that they misrepresented Horizon
Organic milk as organic in violation of state law are impliedly
preempted by the federal certification scheme.  They further
argue that the Plaintiff cannot allege the injury required to
demonstrate standing under California state law because the
Defendants' labels fully disclosed the facts giving rise to the
Plaintiff's claims.  To support this contention, the Defendants
include a declaration from Stanley Marcello, a "Senior Director,
Tax," who declares that Danone is a "separate corporate entity."
The declaration does not explain for which company Marcello is a
director.

Judge Tigar finds that Brown's claims are preempted by the OFPA
certification scheme.  Brown's state law claims that the
certified organic milk is not really organic directly conflict
with OFPA's primary purposes: (1) a uniform national standard,
and (2) exclusive federal enforcement of such standard.  He says
there is simply no way to rule in Brown's favor without
contradicting the certification decision, and, through it, the
certification scheme that Congress enacted in the OFPA.

The Judge also finds that in a ruling on a 12(b)(6) motion, a
court cannot consider evidence outside the pleadings without
converting the motion to dismiss into one for summary judgment
and giving the opposing party an opportunity to respond.  The
Judge accordingly declines to consider the Marcello declaration.
Under the allegations of the complaint, which the Court takes as
true, Danone and WhiteWave together produce, market, and sell
Horizon Organic milk.  He declines to dismiss Danone as an
improper party.

In light of his conclusion that Brown's claims are preempted by
OFPA, and that she lacks standing under the UCL and CLRA, Judge
Tigar needs not address the Defendants' remaining arguments.  He
granted the motion to dismiss in its entirety.  The Plaintiff may
file an amended complaint within 21 days curing the defects
identified in the Order.  If no such complaint is filed, the
Court will dismiss the case with prejudice.

1:15-cv-03755-MHC, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern

intangible and still be considered "concrete."

DISH NETWORK: Ct. Awards Atty.'s Fees to Plaintiff in "Padberg"
---------------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Western District of
Missouri, Central Division, granted Plaintiffs' Motion for Award
of Attorney's Fees, Expenses and Incentive Award in the case
captioned MIKE PADBERG, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. DISH NETWORK L.L.C, a Colorado
limited liability corporation, Defendant, Case No. 2:11-cv-04035-
NKL (W.D. Mo.).

The Settlement Agreement provides monetary relief for Class
Members, including: (A) monetary relief and credits for Class
Members who are current and former AT120+ Customers, paid from a
$2,700,000 Settlement Fund to be established by DISH, Sections
2.4, 6.2; and (B) credits for Class Members who are current and
former non-AT120+ Customers, to be provided by DISH separate from
the Settlement Fund.

In determining the reasonable number of hours expended by Class
Counsel, the Court is satisfied with relying on summaries and
affidavits of counsel. The Court notes that this case has been
heavily litigated since early 2011. As noted in the Plaintiff's
Application, this nationwide class case was filed more than seven
years ago.

Applying the lodestar analysis to Class Counsel's hourly rates
and hours expended, the Court finds that the requested attorney
fee is reasonable because, regardless of how much of the
Settlement Fund reverts to Class Counsel, it will still be less
than Class Counsel's lodestar. The total Settlement Fund, before
any payments, is $2,700,000. Class Counsel's lodestar is more
than $3 million, with an additional $711,278.16 in previously
incurred costs and expenses, exclusive of the settlement
administration costs and expenses. Accordingly, even if there
were no class member claims, and no settlement administration
costs, reversion of the entire Settlement Fund to Class Counsel
as a fee would be reasonable.

The Court also finds that the litigation expenses referenced in
the Plaintiff's Application appear to be expenses of the type
that are routinely charged to paying clients and thus, an award
for recovery of these expenses is appropriate.

Accordingly, the Court grants the Plaintiff's Application for
Award of Attorneys' Fees, Expenses and Class Representative
Incentive Award. The Court approves Class Counsel's fee and
expense request in the form of the Settlement Fund Remainder, and
approves Plaintiff Mike Padberg's request for a class incentive
award in the amount of $15,000.

DONALD J. TRUMP: Sued over Central American Minors Parole Program
-----------------------------------------------------------------
A class action lawsuit, Case No. 3:18-cv-03539-LB (N.D. Cal.,
June 13, 2018), seeks to enjoin and restrain all Defendants, and
their officers, agents, servants, employees, attorneys, and all
persons who are in active concert or participation with any of
them, from implementing or enforcing the decisions to terminate
the Central American Minors Parole program and mass rescind
conditional approval for parole status.

This lawsuit challenges the Trump Administration's termination of
the parole portion of the CAM program -- a program established in
2014 in response to the humanitarian crisis presented by
thousands of unaccompanied minors fleeing danger in El Salvador,
Guatemala, and Honduras and arriving at the Southern Border. Over
the years, the CAM Program enabled thousands of Central American
parents lawfully residing in the United States to safely and
legally bring their children to the United States as refugees or
parolees through an orderly process in which eligibility
determinations were made in the minors' home countries.

According to the complaint, this Administration's highly erratic
and unexplained termination of the CAM Parole program, which
began with secretly shutting down its operations immediately
after inauguration and culminated with the mass rescission of
conditional approval for parole status for nearly 3,000 children
in August 2017, can only be understood as another one of this
Administration's cruel and xenophobic policies against people it
has publicly labeled "animals."

The lawsuit is captioned as S.A.; J.A.; A.B.; R.C., on behalf of
himself and as Guardian Ad Litem for J.C., a minor child; M.C.;
D.D.; G.E., on behalf of himself and as Guardian Ad Litem for
B.E., a minor child; J.F., on behalf of himself and as Guardian
Ad Litem for H.F. and A.F., minor children, on behalf of
themselves and on behalf of a class of all similarly situated
individuals, and CASA, the Plaintiffs, v. DONALD J. TRUMP, in his
official capacity as President of the United States; U.S.
DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY; U.S. CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION
SERVICES; U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE; KIRSTJEN NIELSEN, in her
official capacity as Secretary of Homeland Security; MICHAEL R.
POMPEO, in his official capacity as Secretary of State; L.
FRANCIS CISSNA, in his official capacity as Director of U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services; UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
the Defendants.

Donald John Trump is the 45th and current President of the United
States, in office since January 20, 2017. Before entering
politics, he was a businessman and television personality. The
United States Department of Homeland Security is a cabinet
department of the United States federal government with
responsibilities in public security, roughly comparable to the
interior or home ministries of other countries.[BN]

DR PEPPER: Excevarria Appeals S.D.N.Y. Rulings to Second Circuit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiffs Yasmin Excevarria and Joette Phoenix filed an appeal
from the District Court's order dated April 18, 2018, and another
order dated May 15, 2018, in their lawsuit entitled Excevarria,
et al. v. Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, et al., Case No. 17-cv-7957,
in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York
(New York City).

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the lawsuit
is brought against the Defendants for alleged violations of New
York's Unfair and Deceptive Business Practices Law, false
advertising law, negligent and intentional misrepresentation,
restitution, and breach of express and implied warranties.

The Plaintiffs bring this action on behalf of themselves, other
Diet Dr. Pepper consumers, and the general public, to enjoin Dr.
Pepper from continuing to misleadingly advertise Diet Dr. Pepper,
and to recover restitution and damages for the class.

DYNAMIC RECOVERY: Ojeda Sues over Debt Collections Practices
------------------------------------------------------------
HECTOR OJEDA, pleading on his own behalf and on behalf of all
other similarly situated consumers, the Plaintiff, v. DYNAMIC
RECOVERY SOLUTIONS, the Defendant, Case No. 3:18-cv-00180-KC
(W.D. Tex., June 13, 2018), seeks to recover damages arising from
Defendant's violations of the Fair Debt Collections Practices
Act.

According to the complaint, on or about June 22, 2017, Defendant
sent Plaintiff a collection letter, presenting the "current
balance" as $951.34, for a personal debt originating with Capital
One. The collection letter offered two payment options. Option
one (1) was a lump sum payment of $285.40 which was due on August
6, 2017. Option two (2) was to "resolve [the] account for $332.97
in three (3) monthly payments." Therefore, Option 2 clearly
offered payments over time. In the last line of the Collection
Letter, in much smaller print, Defendant states, "The law limits
how long you can be sued on a debt. Because of the age of your
debt, LVNV Funding LLC will not sue you for it and LVNV Funding
LLC will not report it to any credit reporting bureau." The
collection letter is misleading, confusing, deceptive, and unfair
as it misrepresents the nature, character, and/or legal status of
the alleged debt. The Letter did not indicate or inform Plaintiff
that a partial payment on the debt would restart the running of
the statute of limitations. In fact, had Plaintiff chosen a
payment plan option, and advised Defendant of this in writing,
the partial payment would revive the statute of limitations
rendering the Plaintiff worse off than if he had rejected the
offer.

Dynamic Recovery is a debt collector.[BN]

EDUCATIONAL FINANCIAL: Can't Collect Discharged Debt, Henry Says
----------------------------------------------------------------
STEPHANIE HENRY, on behalf of herself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiffs, v. EDUCATIONAL FINANCIAL SERVICES, A
DIVISION OF WELLS FARGO BANK, N.A, the Defendant, Case No.
18-03154 (S.D. Tex., June 12, 2018), seeks injunctive relief
prohibiting Defendant from continuing to collect on discharged
debts.

According to the complaint, all class members share a similar
factual narrative. All class Members borrowed Consumer Education
Loans from Defendant. All Class Members filed for bankruptcy
protection in various district courts of the United States. At
the conclusion of these bankruptcy cases, all Class Members were
issued Discharge Orders. The statutory injunction effected by
these Discharge Orders extinguished all education-related debt
that was not excepted from discharge by 11 U.S.C. section
523(a)(8). Notwithstanding the discharge of these debts,
Defendant employed processes, practices, and acts designed to
mislead Class Members into believing that their debts were not
discharged and inducing them to make payments on extinguished
debts. The Defendant has misled Class Members and sought to
collect on discharged debts by use of dunning letters, emails,
text messages, and telephone calls demanding repayment. In
addition, to attempt to compel payment on these discharged debts,
Defendant has continued to report these debts as delinquent to
the major credit bureaus, and has failed to update these credit
reports. The Defendant has also commenced or continued legal
actions against Class Members to induce payment on their
discharged debts.[BN]

EGS FINANCIAL: Faces "Allberry" Suit in E.D. New York
-----------------------------------------------------

EP CHARGER: Fails to Pay Overtime Compensation, Yerena Says
-----------------------------------------------------------
OMAR YERENA, individually and on behalf of other individuals
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. EP CHARGER, LLC, a
California Limited Liability Company; and DOES 1 through 25,
inclusive, the Defendants, Case No. BC 709654 (Cal. Super. Ct.,
June 12, 2018), seeks to recover unpaid overtime compensation
under the California Labor Code.

From June 2017 to March 2018, Plaintiff was required to work from
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Plaintiff was initially paid $13.00 per
hour, but his rate was changed to $11.00 per hour (legal minimum
wage) as part of a restructuring of mechanics' wages at
Defendant's business. Since Plaintiffs rate was changed to $11.00
per hour, his wage statements became incredibly complex, although
they clearly show that he was not paid the correct overtime
premiums -- e.g., he was not paid 1.5 times his regular hourly
rate of $11.00 for his overtime hours.

EP Charger is in the new and used car dealers business.[BN]

FACEBOOK INC: Kopecky Sues over Massive Data Exfiltration
---------------------------------------------------------
TRACEY KOPECKY, on behalf of herself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. FACEBOOK INC., a Delaware
corporation; CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICA LLC, a Delaware limited
liability company; and DOES 1-100, the Defendants, Case No.
2:18-cv-02573-PBT (E.D. Pa., June 19, 2018), alleges grievous and
unprecedented breach of trust and invasion of privacy by which
Facebook Inc. allowed Cambridge Analytica, LLC and other unknown
third party defendants access to, and the potential unlimited use
of, vast amounts of sensitive personal information, including
names, birthdates, locations, photos, videos, and likes
("Personal Information") from Facebook users without their
consent.

Facebook operates a social networking platform where its users
provide their Personal Information to Facebook under the belief
and agreement that Facebook will safeguard that information, and
that Facebook will share the information only with the persons,
entities, and groups with whom the user consents. Instead of
safeguarding this sensitive Personal Information, Facebook
provided it to third party application ("app") developers without
user consent. Once the user data was in the possession of the
third party app developers, Facebook exercised no control over
how the app developer used the data.

Cambridge Analytica, through the use of one third party app
developer, obtained Personal Information from more than 87
million Facebook users which it thereafter used to create
targeted political advertising and messaging in various United
States elections. Moreover, this intentional massive data
exfiltration is not an isolated incident but simply a high
profile exemplar.

According to the complaint, only after public outcry has Facebook
proposed remedial measures. Yet, these proposed measures remain
feeble and hollow. None of these stopgap measures adequately
remedy or prevent the improper and illegal conduct alleged. In
fact, users' data remains dangerously unprotected and open to
further abuse by third party app developers and anyone to whom
these third party app developers distribute the users' data.
Defendants' disregard for the protection of Plaintiffs and class
members' Personal Information has led Plaintiff to bring this
suit to protect their privacy interests and those of the
class.[BN]

FACEBOOK INC: Gullen Appeals N.D. Calif. Ruling to Ninth Circuit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff Frederick William Gullen filed an appeal from a court
ruling in the lawsuit titled Frederick Gullen v. Facebook, Inc.,
Case No. 3:16-cv-00937-JD, in the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of California, San Francisco.

As reported in the Class Action Reporter on April 27, 2018, the
District Court denied the Plaintiffs' Motion to Amend Class
Action Complaint to add a second named plaintiff and by narrowing

The complaint alleges that Facebook, Inc. violated the Illinois
Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), by collecting Gullen's
biometric identifiers without notice or consent.  Gullen sought
to represent all non-Facebook users who, while residing in the
State of Illinois, had their biometric identifiers, including
face templates' or face prints, collected, captured, received,
stored, used, or otherwise obtained by Facebook.

The appellate case is captioned as Frederick Gullen v. Facebook,
Inc., Case No. 18-15785, in the United States Court of Appeals
for the Ninth Circuit.

FACEBOOK INC: Appeals Class Cert. Order in "Patel" to 9th Cir.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Facebook, Inc., filed an appeal from the District Court's April
16, 2018 order granting class action certification in the lawsuit
styled Nimesh Patel, et al. v. Facebook, Inc., Case No. 3:15-cv-
03747-JD, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of
California, San Francisco.

As reported in the Class Action Reporter on May 17, 2018, Judge
James Donato allowed a class action brought by Facebook users in
Illinois to go ahead.

The case was brought by Nimesh Patel and others representing a
class of Facebook users alleging that the "Tag Suggestions"
feature violates their privacy rights.  Facebook's tagging
feature allows users to tag themselves or friends in photos, and
Facebook also uses facial recognition technology to suggest
friends be tagged.  Patel alleged that the collection and storage
of such biometric data violates provisions of the Illinois
Biometric Privacy Act.

The appellate case is captioned as Nimesh Patel, et al. v.
Facebook, Inc., Case No. 18-15982, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

The briefing schedule in the Appellate Case is set as follows:

   -- Mediation Questionnaire was due on June 6, 2018;

   -- Transcript must be ordered by June 28, 2018;

FINANCIAL ENGINES: Rubenstein Balks at Merger Deal with Edelman
---------------------------------------------------------------
JERRY RUBENSTEIN, Individually and on Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. FINANCIAL ENGINES, INC.,
BLAKE R. GROSSMAN, JOSEPH A. GRUNDFEST, E. OLENA BERG-LACY, HEIDI
KUNZ, ROBERT A. HURET, MICHAEL E. MARTIN, LAWRENCE M. RAFFONE,
JOHN B. SHOVEN, and DAVID B. YOFFIE, the Defendants, Case No.
3:18-cv-03542-EMC (N.D. Cal., June 13, 2018), seeks to enjoin
Defendants from holding stockholder vote and taking any steps to
consummate a proposed merger transaction unless and until
material information is disclosed to the Company's stockholders
sufficiently in advance of the Stockholder Vote or, in the event
the Proposed Transaction 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 stockholders of Financial
Engines, Inc. against Financial Engines and the members of the
Company's board of directors for their violations of Sections
14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and
Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 14a-9, 17 C.F.R.
240.14a-9, in connection with the proposed acquisition of
Financial Engines by Edelman Financial, L.P.

On April 29, 2018, Financial Engines, Edelman, and Flashdance
Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and an indirect wholly
owned subsidiary of Edelman, entered into an Agreement and Plan
of Merger, pursuant to which Merger Sub will merge with and into
Financial Engines, with Financial Engines continuing as the
surviving corporation and as an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary
of Edelman. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, each
outstanding share of Financial Engines common stock will be
converted into the right to receive $45.00 per share in cash,
without interest and subject to required withholding taxes.

On June 8, 2018, to convince Financial Engines' stockholders to
vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction, Defendants authorized
the filing of a materially incomplete and misleading Schedule 14A
Definitive Proxy Statement with the SEC, in violation of Sections
14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act.  In particular, the Proxy
contains materially incomplete and misleading information
concerning: (i) financial projections for Financial Engines; (ii)
the valuation analyses performed by Financial Engines' financial
advisor, Sandler O'Neill & Partners, L.P., in support of its
fairness opinion; and (iii) the background process leading up to
the Proposed Transaction. The special meeting of Financial
Engines stockholders to vote on the Proposed Transaction is
scheduled for July 16, 2018. It is imperative that the material
information that has been omitted from the Proxy is disclosed to
the Company's stockholders prior to the Stockholder Vote so that
they can properly exercise their corporate suffrage rights.

Financial Engines provides independent technology-enabled
financial advisory, discretionary portfolio management,
personalized investment advice, financial and retirement income
planning, and financial education and guidance services in the

----------------------------------------------------------------
MICHAEL DePILLARS, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. FRY'S ELECTRONICS, INC., the
Defendant, Case No. BC709630 (Cal. Super. Ct., June 14, 2018),
seeks to recover statutory damages and reasonable attorneys' fees
and costs on behalf of Plaintiff, and injunctive relief on behalf

GALFAB ACQUISITIONS: "Kreischer" Suit Seeks OT Pay under FLSA
-------------------------------------------------------------
JOHN KREISCHER, HENRY EPPS, WILLIAM BOX, JASON YENNA, THOMAS
NELSON, BRIAN BUCKMAN, CURLEY CONLEY, and JAMES GALBREATH,
On behalf of themselves and all others similarly-situated, the
Plaintiffs, v. GALFAB ACQUISITIONS, LLC, WASTEBUILT ENVIRONMENTAL
SOLUTIONS, LLC, GALFAB, LLC, GALFAB HOLDINGS, LLC, and BEN
SCHEINER, the Defendants, Case No. 1:18-cv-04068 (N.D. Ill., June
12, 2018), seeks to recover overtime pay under the Fair Labor
Standards Act.

According to the complaint, Defendants were in the business of
manufacturing and selling products commonly used in the waste and
recycling industry, such as dumpsters, hoist, compactors, and
containers. Between January of 2013 and approximately September
of 2017, Defendants employed hundreds of laborers paid on a piece
rate at Galfab's Indiana Plant and Phoenix Plant to build the
products sold by Defendants. The Plaintiffs and those similarly-
situated are and/or were Piece Rate Employees during the
applicable statute of limitations period, through the present.
Piece Rate Employees generally worked a nine-and-a-half-hour day,
with half an hour automatically deducted for lunch, five days a
week. Thus, Piece Rate Employees regularly worked a scheduled 45-
hour workweek. Piece Rate Employees would be called upon to work
beyond their Scheduled Hours when necessary, to include working
late, coming in early, and working on Saturdays. The Employees
reported their time via a time punch. The Employees were paid a
piece rate for the products they built. The Employees would run
out of parts or supplies, the shop would be slow, or need
cleaning. The Employees would be paid an hourly rate for this
work when it needed to be performed ("Non-Production Work"). The
Employees were also paid hourly when they attended mandatory
safety meetings or other meetings. The Defendants did not pay
Piece Rate Employees overtime -- at all -- for time worked over
40 hours in a workweek. Rather than paying Piece Rate Employees
overtime, Defendants simply paid these employees their applicable
piece rate or hourly Non-Production Work rate for time worked
over 40 hours in a week.[BN]

GUDRUN CORP: Website not Accessible to Blind, Wu Says
-----------------------------------------------------
KATHY WU AND ON BEHALF OF ALL OTHER PERSONS SIMILARLY SITUATED,
the Plaintiffs, v. GUDRUN CORP., the Defendant, Case No. 1:18-cv-
05282-ALC (S.D.N.Y., June 12, 2018), seeks permanent injunction
to cause a change in Defendant's corporate policies, practices,
and procedures so that Defendant's website will become and remain
accessible to blind and visually-impaired consumers.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff is a visually-impaired
and legally blind person who requires screen-reading software to
read website content using her computer. Plaintiff uses the terms
"blind" or "visually-impaired" to refer to all people with visual
impairments who meet the legal definition of blindness in that
they have a visual acuity with correction of less than or equal
to 20 x 200. Some blind people who meet that definition have
limited vision. Others have no vision.

The Plaintiff brings her civil rights action against Defendant
for its failure to design, construct, maintain, and operate its
website to be fully accessible to and independently usable by
Plaintiff and other blind or visually-impaired people.
Defendant's denial of full and equal access to its website, and
therefore denial of its products and services offered thereby and
in conjunction with its physical locations, is a violation of
Plaintiff's rights under the Americans with Disabilities
Act. Because Defendant's website, www.gudrenjoden.com/us, is not
equally accessible to blind and visually-impaired consumers, it
violates the ADA.[BN]

HOMESTREET BANK: Fails to Pay OT & Minimum Wages, Parseghian Says
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ARAZ PARSEGHIAN, individually, and on behalf of other members of

Ct., June 12, 2018), seeks to recover unpaid overtime, unpaid
meal period premiums, unpaid rest period premiums, and unpaid
minimum wages, under the California Labor Code.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff commenced his
employment as a commission-based employee from approximately
October 2016 to April 2017 for Defendants in the State of
California. The Defendants hired Plaintiff and the other class
members, and paid them in-part or wholly in commissions for
selling loans, and failed to properly calculate and compensate
them for all hours worked, rest periods, 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 commission-based employees within the State of California.

home loans, and business banking & loans with a focus on creating

(D. Colo.), Judge Christine M. Arguello of the U.S. District
Court for the District of Colorado granted the parties' Joint
Report Regarding Proposed Rule 23 Notification Plan.

The parties' Joint Motion requests that the Court enters their
proposed Rule 23 Notification Plan.  Judge Arguello finds that
the form and content of the notice program described therein, and
the methods set forth of providing notice to the classes, meet
the requirements of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23 and other
applicable laws and rules, are the best notice practicable under
the circumstances, and will constitute due, adequate, and
sufficient notice to all persons entitled thereto.  She therefore
approved the parties' Rule 23 Notification Plan and the proposed
notice.

The Judge directed JND Legal Administration to communicate with
the classes, consistent with the Joint Report, with an email to
the classes that includes the Class Notice, a link to the class
website, and a link to the exclusion request form. The email will
use the language proposed in the Joint Report, Exhibit A,
Paragraph V.

For the class members who cannot successfully email, JND Legal
Administration will text them with the language proposed in the
Joint Report, Exhibit A, Paragraph VI.

The members of the classes will have 90 days from the date that
class notice is sent to opt out, by submitting a fully-completed
Au Pair Class Action Exclusion Request Form.

KEEFE COMMISSARY: Court Denies Bid to Dismiss "Reichert" Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, JEFFREY REICHERT, individually and on behalf of all
other similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. KEEFE COMMISSARY NETWORK,
L.L.C. d/b/a Access Corrections; Rapid Investments, Inc., d/b/a
Rapid Financial Solutions, d/b/a Access Freedom; and Cache Valley
Bank, Defendant, Case No. C17-5848RBL (W.D. Wash.), Judge Ronald
B. Leighton of the U.S. District Court for the Western District
of Washington, Tacoma, denied Defendants Rapid Investments, Inc.
and Cache Valley Bank's Motion to Compel Arbitration, and denied
Keefe's Motion to Stay or Dismiss Plaintiff's Claims.

Plaintiff Reichert was arrested on Oct. 21, 2016 by a Kitsap
County Sheriff's Deputy.  Upon arrest, the deputy confiscated
$176.77 in cash from him.  Reichert was released at 5:00 a.m. the
next day.  Instead of receiving cash, Reichert was handed an
"AccessFreedom Card" -- a debit card issued by Defendants Cache
Valley and Rapid, pursuant to a contract between Kitsap County
and Keefe.  Reichert was not provided with any paperwork
explaining the Card, or given any oral explanation of its terms.
When Reichert asked the jail officer for his cash, he was told
that he doesn't get his cash back, he gets a debit card.

Reichert did not request or apply for the Card.  He never agreed
to receive the Card.  He was not given any documentation showing
how much had been taken from him during his arrest, or how much
was loaded onto the Card. No one explained how to access his
money, that additional fees applied if he did not access it
within 72 hours, or that he would lose nearly 10% of his cash to
fees.  He did not sign any document agreeing to the Card or its
terms.  Reichert had no opportunity to reject the Card (or even
to affirmatively accept it).

The moving Defendants argue that by accepting and using the Card
he received, Reichert agreed to the terms contained within the
Cardholder Agreement.  Reichert "accepted the offer" to use the
Card (and actually used it), thus forming a contract.  They argue
that although Reichert claims he did not receive a copy of the
Cardholder Agreement when he was released, the back of the Card
provides Rapid's website, where those terms and conditions may be
found.

Moreover, they claim the contract contains an arbitration clause,
including a delegation clause, giving the arbitrator (rather than
the court) the power to decide questions of arbitrability in the
first instance.  They claim that in the Ninth Circuit, delegation
clauses are to be enforced, unless there is a challenge specific
to the delegation clause.  Because Reichert asserts no such
challenge, they claim, the delegation clause should be enforced.

The front and center issue in these two motions is whether a
binding contract, including a mandatory arbitration clause, was
formed under the circumstances of the case.

Judge Leighton is persuaded by the evidence that one was not.  He
finds that the Defendants' practices are substantially similar to
those at issue in Regan v. Stored Value Cards, Inc. and Brown v.
Stored Value Cards, Inc., and there is no arbitration agreement
to enforce.  All contracts, including those to arbitrate
disputes, must have mutual assent, and the Defendants' "contract"
to arbitrate is unenforceable and unconscionable under Washington
law.  Hence, the Judge denied the Defendants' motions to compel.

He also denied Defendant Keefe's Motion to Stay or Dismiss
Plaintiff's Claims.  He holds that Reichert's claims are not
couched in the language of contract law.  Rather, they emanate
from the U.S. Constitution (Fifth Amendment); Federal statutory
law (Electronic Fund Transfer Act; State law (Washington Consumer
Protection Act6); and common law (Conversion and Unjust
Enrichment).  Nothing before the Judge persuades him to dismiss
the Complaint.  It should be noted, however, that nothing before
him leads it to believe a class action is the best way to deal
with this dispute.

The analysis of the prior cases, demonstrate a clear fork in the
road between valid contract (not actionable) and no contract
(actionable).  This is just a cautionary tale for now.  The Court
remains skeptical on the question of class status.

KING COUNTY, WA: Retroactive Contributions Ruling Upheld
--------------------------------------------------------
In the case, KEVIN DOLAN and a class of similarly situated
individuals, Respondents, v. KING COUNTY, a political subdivision
of the State of Washington, Respondent, DEPARTMENT OF RETIREMENT
SYSTEMS, Appellant, Case No. 49876-6-II (Wash. App.), Judge
Bradley A. Maxa of the Court of Appeals of Washington, Division
II, affirmed the trial court's interest order and judgment
requiring the County to pay only a portion of the interest, $10.5
million, on the retroactive contributions.

The appeal involves the remedies phase of a class action lawsuit
in which a class of public defenders employed by organizations
with which King County contracted alleged that the County had
been obligated to enroll them in Washington's Public Employees'
Retirement System ("PERS").  The Supreme Court held that the
County had such an obligation, and remanded for the trial court
to address remedies.  The Department of Retirement Systems
("DRS") later intervened to address various remedy issues.

After more litigation and a second appeal, the class members and
the County reached a settlement in which the County agreed that
the class members would be retroactively eligible for PERS
service credit dating back to 1978.  The County also agreed to
pay the full amount of retroactive contributions into PERS
relating to the class members.  Left unresolved was whether the
County also would be required to pay approximately $64 million in
interest on the retroactive contributions to replace lost
investment returns or whether that amount would be "socialized" -
- spread out among existing PERS participants -- through an
increase of contributions from existing PERS participants.

While litigation regarding the interest issue was pending, DRS
issued a letter informing the County that DRS had decided under
authority granted in RCW 41.50.125 to charge the County the full
amount of the interest on the retroactive contributions.  DRS
subsequently argued that because the County did not seek review
of this decision under the Administrative Procedure Act ("APA"),
chapter 34.05 RCW, the trial court did not have jurisdiction to
address the interest issue.  The trial court ruled that it had
jurisdiction.  After an evidentiary hearing, the court ruled
based on equitable principles that the County would be required
to pay only a portion of the interest, $10.5 million, on the
retroactive contributions.

DRS appeals the trial court's order, arguing that (1) the trial
court erred in ruling on the County's interest obligation because
the County did not seek review of DRS's interest decision under
the APA; (2) the trial court erred in applying equitable
principles to determine the County's interest obligation when RCW
41.50.125 authorized DRS to make interest decisions; and (3) even
if the trial court properly addressed the interest issue, the
court erred because equity does not support imposing only a
portion of the interest obligation on the County.

Judge Maxa holds that that because the trial court obtained
original subject matter jurisdiction regarding the interest
matter before DRS' interest decision, under the "priority of
action" rule the trial court had exclusive authority to decide
the County's interest obligation.  As a result, he holds that the
APA did not limit the trial court's ability to determine the
amount of interest the County should pay into PERS.

The Judge also holds the trial court did not err in exercising
its equitable authority despite DRS's interest decision because
RCW 41.50.125's authorization to DRS to charge interest on late
PERS payments was not mandatory or exclusive.  Because RCW
41.50.125 does not state a requirement that interest must be
charged and does not expressly grant DRS exclusive authority over
the interest decision, the trial court retained authority to
address the interest issue based on equitable principles.  Both
the trial court and DRS initially had authority to rule on the
interest issue.  But the trial court had exclusive authority
under the priority of action rule because the court obtained
jurisdiction first.

Finally, the Judge holds that the trial court did not err in
ruling based on equitable principles that the County was required
to pay only a portion of the interest on the retroactive PERS
contributions.  Requiring the County to be solely responsible
would be very burdensome, and would result in it reducing
services and incurring debt in addition to its current budget
deficit.  By contrast, socializing the cost would be consistent
with the typical practice, and would result in an increase in
contribution rates that is substantially smaller than other
increases over the previous few years.  And although some of DRS
challenges to other considerations may have merit, the trial
court had broad discretion in the exercise of its equitable
authority and there is no requirement that all the considerations
support the court's ruling.

Accordingly, Judge Maxa affirmed the trial court's interest order
and judgment.

KNORR-BREMSE AG: Kubik Sues over No-Poach Agreements
----------------------------------------------------
EDWARD KUBIK, DEONDRA RANDLE, and ALLYN BASORE, individually and
on behalf of all others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v.
FAIVELEY TRANSPORT S.A.; FAIVELEY TRANSPORT NORTH AMERICA, INC.;
KNORR-BREMSE AG; KNORR BRAKE COMPANY; NEW YORK AIR BRAKE
LLC; and WESTINGHOUSE AIR BRAKE TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION d/b/a
WABTEC CORPORATION, the Defendants, Case No. 3:18-cv-01618-MGL
(D.S.C., June 13, 2018), seeks to recover treble damages,
attorneys' fees, litigation expenses, and court costs, for
violations of Sherman Act of 1890 and Clayton Act of 1914.

The class action challenges a series of agreements between three
of the world's largest rail equipment suppliers not to solicit,
recruit, hire without prior approval, or otherwise compete for
employees (collectively, "No-Poach Agreements"). For many years,
beginning as early as 2009 and continuing until at least April
2018, these No-Poach Agreements were agreed upon, monitored and
enforced by high-level executives of Defendants and their co-
conspirators, with many critical contacts and communications
between the Defendants happening in this District. These No-Poach
Agreements restrained competition in the relevant labor market,
allocated employees between the companies, and deprived employees
of the ability to seek higher paying jobs or negotiate for better
compensation. Accordingly, the No-Poach Agreements are naked,
horizontal, market-allocation agreements that are per se
violations of Section 1 of the Sherman Act.[BN]

KUSHY PUNCH: Edibles Have Low THC Amount, Lambert Claims
--------------------------------------------------------
TINA LAMBERT, an individual and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. KUSHY PUNCH, INC., a California
Corporation; and DOES 1 through 100, inclusive, the Defendants,
Case No. 37-2018-00030269-CU-BT- CTL (Cal. Super. Ct., June 19,
2018), alleges Defendants' unlawful, deceptive and unfair course
of conduct in manufacturing, marketing, and/or selling variety of
Edibles products with false Tetrahydrocannabinol amount.

This is a class action case brought on behalf of all purchasers
of Kushy Punch, Inc. edible products, including but not limited
to the Kushy Punch Sativa, Indica, Hybrid and Recover Gummy
Edibles. The Edibles are sold through various retailers
nationwide, including retailers in Plaintiff's home state of
California.

According to the complaint, Defendants' Edibles contain
materially less THC than advertised to consumers on product
packaging. The Plaintiff purchased Defendants Edible which
prominently, and in no uncertain terms, represented that the
product contained l00 mg of THC. Contrary to the "100 mg of THC"
claim on the product packaging, however, the offending Edibles
were made, manufactured, produced and/or sold with significantly
lower levels of THC than marketed. Independent laboratory testing
confirmed that the amount of THC actually contained in Defendants
Edible products is significantly lower than Defendant's falsely
advertised 100 mg of THC per unit on its packaging, in violation
of California's Unfair Competition Law codified at Business &
Professions Code Section 17200 et seq. As such. Defendants cannot
lawfully sell their Edibles and falsely claim that it contains 10
mg of THC.[BN]

LAS VEGAS SANDS: Summary Judgment in Securities Suit Affirmed
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, POMPANO BEACH POLICE & FIREFIGHTERS' RETIREMENT
SYSTEM and ALASKA ELECTRICAL PENSION FUND, Lead Plaintiffs, On
Behalf of Themselves and All Others Similarly Situated,
Plaintiffs-Appellants, v. LAS VEGAS SANDS CORPORATION; et al.,
Defendants-Appellees, Case No. 17-15216 (9th Cir.), the U.S.
United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit affirmed the
district court's summary judgment in favor of the Defendants.

The Plaintiffs appeal an adverse summary judgment in their
securities fraud class action under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of
the Securities Exchange Act, against Las Vegas Sands Corp.
("LVS"), Sheldon Adelson, LVS's majority stockholder and
controller, and William Weidner, the Chief Operating Officer.

The Plaintiffs challenge five sets of statements: (1) Senior VP
Henry's reassurances to investors that LVS had sufficient
liquidity and access to credit markets; (2) Adelson's statements
during the July 30, 2008, conference call; (3) the Defendants'
claims that the development in Southeast Asia was progressing and
the opening dates were on track; (4) Stone's statement that
Weidner had been misquoted regarding the 40% increase in costs in
Singapore; and (5) Weidner's substitution of quarterly revenues
for annual earnings on the April 30, 2008, earnings call.
Finally, they allege control person liability against Adelson and
Weidner under Section 20(a).

The Appellate Court finds that the district court properly found
that Henry's April 30, 2008, statements regarding LVS's financing
prospects and the interest from Asian banks were future-oriented,
looking to possible financing sources in the coming months. The
"Disclaimer" at the outset of the call was a "meaningful
cautionary statement" as required by 15 U.S.C. Section 78u-
5(c)(1)(A).  These future-looking statements are protected by the
safe harbor provision in federal securities law.

Henry's other statements from April 30, 2008, about prior
conversations with banks and evaluating non-equity alternatives
were not misleading because LVS was, in fact, meeting with banks
and discussing financing options.  Even though Henry's "ample
access" statement may be misleading, the Plaintiffs failed to
demonstrate how disclosing Henry's misstatement resulted in
dropping stock prices, rather than "changed economic
circumstances" from the contemporaneous global financial
recession.  Therefore, the Plaintiffs cannot establish a genuine
issue of material fact as to loss causation resulting from
Henry's April 30 statements.

The Court further finds that the Plaintiffs cannot establish a
triable issue regarding Adelson's July 30, 2008 earnings call
statements.  Adelson's  statements that the company would not
seek equity financing, was considering various financing
alternatives, had flexibility in financing, the "fundamentals" of
LVS had not changed, and the pipeline was still continuing were
not misleading.  In fact, they were true.  The Plaintiffs failed
to raise a genuine issue of material fact as to falsity for
Adelson's July 30 statements and the remaining statements fall
within the safe harbor rule.

All of the statements regarding the progress of the projects on
the Cotai Strip were also true.  The Court finds that none
affirmatively created an impression of a state of affairs that
differed in a material way from the one that actually existed.
The statement that Sites 5 and 6 were "on track" falls within the
safe harbor of forward-looking statements.  It discusses "plans
and objectives of management for future operations" and was
accompanied by cautionary language.

While there may be a genuine issue of fact that Stone's statement
was misleading and made with scienter, the Plaintiffs cannot
establish loss causation.  They Plaintiffs have not shown that
the revelation of that misrepresentation was a substantial factor
in causing the decline in the security's price.

The Appellate Court finds that the Plaintiffs failed to raise a
genuine issue of material fact as to loss causation for Weidner's
statement.  Even if the Bank of America Report impacted the stock
price, the Plaintiffs do not demonstrate how Weidner's false
statement months before was a "substantial factor" in the decline
when the disclosure does not mention EBITDAR or Weidner's April
statement.

Finally, it finds that the Plaintiffs cannot raise a genuine
dispute under Section 20(a) for controlling person liability
against Weidner or Adelson because they cannot prove a primary
violation of underlying securities laws.

For these reasons, the Ninth Circuit affirmed.  The Appellants
will bear the costs of appeal.

LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC: Reinhart Appeals Ruling in "Brown" Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
Defendants Gary Reinhart, Rebecca Adams and Bryan Koon filed an
appeal from a court ruling in the lawsuit entitled Twanda Brown,
et al. v. Gary Reinhart, et al., 3:17-cv-01426-MBS-SVH, in the
U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina at
Columbia.

The other Defendants are LEXINGTON COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA; ROBERT
MADSEN, in his official capacity as the Circuit Public Defender
for the Eleventh Judicial Circuit of South Carolina; and ALBERT
JOHN DOOLEY, III, in his official capacity as the Associate Chief
Judge for Administrative Purposes of the Summary Courts in
Lexington County.

Gary Reinhart is the Chief Judge for Administrative Purposes of
the Summary Courts in Lexington County.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the lawsuit
accuses Lexington County of running a modern day debtors' prison.

According to ACLU and its legal ally, Lexington County runs a
nasty practice of routinely jailing individuals unable to pay
court-ordered fines on time.  In some cases, they say, men and
women have had bench warrants issued for their arrest mere days
after accruing a past-due balance.

The appellate case is captioned as Twanda Brown, et al. v. Gary
Reinhart, et al., Case No. 18-1524, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.[BN]

LIFEHOUSE HOLDINGS: Violates Residents' Rights, Antoine Says
------------------------------------------------------------
MARIE ANTOINE, by and through her Successor in Interest, Marie
Antoine Pierre, the Plaintiff, v. LIFEHOUSE HOLDINGS, LLC;
LIFEHOUSE SAN DIEGO OPERATIONS, LLC; and DOES 1 through 250,
inclusive the Defendants, Case No. 37-2018-00030299-CU-MC-CTL
(Cal. Super. Ct, June 19, 2018), seeks to permanently enjoin
Defendants, and each of them, from violating residents' rights
pursuant to Health & Safety' Code section 1430(b).

According to the complaint, the Defendants have owned, licensed,
operated, administered, managed, directed, and/or controlled the
Facility within the three years prior to the filing of this
complaint through the date of the final disposition of this
action. In owning, operating, managing, administrating,
controlling, and/or supervising the Facility, Defendants were
required to comply with California statutory and regulatory law
governing the operation of skilled nursing facilities. In owning,
operating, managing, administrating, controlling, and/or
supervising the Facility, Defendants were also subject to the
authority of licensing and other governmental agencies, including
but not limited to the California Department of Public Health
(DPH), the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS),
and the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The Plaintiff and the class were residents of the Facility who
entered into uniform Admissions Agreements with attachments
incorporated into said uniform Admission Agreement mandated by
and pursuant to Health & Safety Code section, 1599.74 with the
Defendants prior to becoming residents at the Facility. And in

LOS ANGELES, CA: Leeds Sues over recycLA Program
------------------------------------------------
FREDERICK H. LEEDS, individually and as trustee of the Frederick
H. Leeds Intervivos Trust dated November 30, 1990; MALCOLM
BENNETT, an individual; and 7005 L.P., a California Limited
Partnership, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiffs, v. CITY OF LOS ANGELES, a public
entity; and DOES 1 through 50, inclusive, the Defendant, Case No.
BC709658 (Cal. Super. Ct., June 14, 2018), alleges that
Plaintiffs and the Class have been damaged and are entitled to a
refund of all monies collected by and for the benefit of the City
under the recycLA program that are violative of Proposition 218,
plus reasonable attorneys' fees and costs.

This class action arises from the Defendants City of Los Angeles'
implementation of a program called "recycLA", which in July 2017
imposed a new commercial system for the private hauling of waste
and garbage from certain multi-unit dwellings and commercial
properties. Significantly, a key component of the recycLA program
is a tax that was illegally imposed by the City in violation of
Proposition 218.

Prior to July 2017, approximately 150 different private trash
haulers competed in both price and quality for the hauling and
removal of trash from properties not serviced by the City of Los
Angeles Department of Sanitation. Under the recycLA program, the
competitive system was eliminated. In its place, the City awarded
exclusive contracts to a handful of large waste hauling companies
(waste haulers) who each now have a monopoly for hauling trash in
one of eleven designated zones throughout the City of Los
Angeles.

Los Angeles is a sprawling Southern California city and the
center of the nation's film and television industry. Near its
iconic Hollywood sign, studios such as Paramount Pictures,
Universal and Warner Brothers offer behind-the-scenes tours.[BN]

LTD FINANCIAL: Weiss and Johnson Sue over Debt Collection
---------------------------------------------------------
John Weiss and Adria Johnson, individually and on behalf of all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v. LTD Financial
Services Limited Partnership, the Defendant, Case No. 2:18-cv-
03462-JS-ARL (E.D.N.Y., June 13, 2018), seeks to recover damages
for Defendant's violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices
Act.

According to the complaint, in its efforts to collect the debt
alleged owed by Plaintiff Weiss, the Defendant contacted
Plaintiff Weiss by a letter dated June 9, 2017. In its efforts to
collect the debt alleged owed by Plaintiff Johnson, the Defendant
contacted Plaintiff Johnson by letter dated June 27, 2017. The
Letters each state, "Acceptance of this settlement offer,
selecting a repayment option and payment by the due date will
settle this debt in full with the current creditor."

The Letters each set forth two settlement Payment Plan options,
including dates certain by which the first payment (and
successive payments, if applicable) must be made. While a
settlement offer in and of itself is not improper, such offer
runs afoul of the FDCPA if it impresses upon the least
sophisticated consumer that if she does not pay by the settlement
deadline, she will have no further opportunity to settle her debt
for less than the full amount.

LTD Financial is a debt collector.[BN]

MARINER FINANCE: Pooner Seeks Unpaid Overtime Wages under FLSA
--------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Pooner, 10300 Sunnylake Place Cockeysville, Maryland
21030, On behalf of himself and others similarly situated, the
Plaintiffs, v. Mariner Finance, LLC 8211 Town Center Drive
Nottingham, Maryland 21236 a Maryland Limited Liability Corp.;
Joshua Johnson 8211 Town Center Drive Nottingham, Maryland 21236;
and Michele Strohm, 8211 Town Center Drive Nottingham, Maryland,
the Defendants, Case No. 1:18-cv-01736-ELH (D. Md., June 12,
2018), seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages, liquidated and
statutory damages pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act, the
Maryland Wage and Hour Law, and the Maryland Wage Payment and
Collection Law.

The Plaintiff brings this action on behalf of himself and all
persons similarly situated who have worked at any of the Mariner
Finance branch locations as account representatives and customer
service representatives throughout the United States, which is
owned, controlled and operated by the Defendants.

The Plaintiff was employed by the Defendants at two branch
locations of Mariner Finance within the three years preceding the
filing of this lawsuit, i.e., June 2016 through April 9, 2018.
For the entire time that Plaintiff worked for Defendants, the
Plaintiff served as an account representative and earned an
hourly wage. Plaintiff's compensation arrangement was similar to
other Mariner Finance account representatives and customer
service representatives, insofar as all account representatives
and customer service representatives were paid an hourly rate as
opposed to a salary. The Plaintiff's final hourly rate was
$16.00/hour. Plaintiff worked in the Pikesville and Woodlawn
branches of Mariner Finance.[BN]

through 50 inclusive, the Defendants, Case No. BC709655 (Cal.
Super. Ct., June 13, 2018), seeks to recover unpaid overtime
wages and minimum/regular wages under the California Labor Code.

According to the complaint, Defendants' systematic pattern of
denying their employees specific rights afforded to them under
the California law, such as refusing to pay for time and a half
overtime for all overtime hours worked, and failing to allow for
meal and rest breaks. The Plaintiff alleges that Defendants have
increased its profits by violating state wage and hour laws and
exploiting its employees, by, among other things: (1) failing to
pay its employees all wages for time worked and (2) failing to
allow meal and rest periods.[BN]

MDL 2741: "Young" Suit vs Monsanto Consolidated in N.D. Calif.
--------------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled John Gordon Young, the Plaintiff,
v. MONSANTO COMPANY, the Defendant, Case No. 3:18-cv-03514-VC,
was transferred from the U.S. District Court for the District of
South Carolina to the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of California (San Francisco) on June 13, 2018. The
District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 3:18-cv-03514-VC to the
proceeding.

This is an action for damages suffered by Plaintiff as a direct
and proximate result of Defendant 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 Young case is being consolidated with MDL 2741 in re: Roundup
Products Liability Litigation. The MDL was created by Order of
the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on
October 3, 2016. These actions share common factual questions
arising out of allegations that Monsanto's Roundup herbicide,
particularly its active ingredient, glyphosate, causes non-
Hodgkin's lymphoma. Plaintiffs each allege that they or their
decedents developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after using Roundup
over the course of several or more years. Plaintiffs also allege
that the use of glyphosate in conjunction with other ingredients,
in particular the surfactant polyethoxylated tallow amine (POEA),
renders Roundup even more toxic than glyphosate on its own.
Issues concerning general causation, the background science, and
regulatory history will be common to all actions. In its October
3, 2016 Order, the MDL Panel found that the actions in this MDL
involve common questions of fact, and that centralization in the
Northern District of California will serve the convenience of the
parties and witnesses and promote the just and efficient conduct
of this litigation. Centralization will eliminate duplicative
discovery; prevent inconsistent pretrial rulings (including with
respect to discovery, privilege, and Daubert motion practice);
and conserve the resources of the parties, their counsel, and the
judiciary. Presiding Judge in the MDL is Hon. Judge Vince
Chhabria. The lead case is 3:16-md-02741-VC.[BN]

MDL 2742: Balyasny, Luxor Excluded fr. Securities Suit Deal Class
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge P. Kecin Castel of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York excluded Balyasny Asset Management L.P. and
Luxor Capital Group, LP, from the proposed settlement class in
the case, IN RE: SUNEDISON, INC. SECURITIES LITIGATION. THIS
ORDER RELATES TO: IN RE: TERRAFORM GLOBAL, INC. SECURITIES
LITIGATION, Case No. 16-md-2742 (PKC) (S.D. N.Y.).

The class plaintiff in In re Terraform Global, Inc. Securities
Litigation has challenged two opt-out notices submitted by
members of the proposed shareholder class.  The class counsel
asserts that the opt-out submissions did not include adequate
"documentary proof" and asserts that they are therefore
ineffective.  The shares held by the two shareholders assertedly
exceed the threshold number of opt outs that triggers the
Defendants' option to terminate the settlement, which the option
Defendants have purportedly exercised.

On April 27, 2018, the Court presided at a hearing on the class
counsel's challenge to the two opt-out submissions.

On Dec. 19, 2017, the Court granted the lead Plaintiff's
unopposed motion for preliminary approval of class action
settlement, and approved the class-wide notice of settlement.
Paragraph 11 of the Court-approved Notice sets forth the manner
for requesting exclusion.  It states in part that in order to be
valid, such request for exclusion must be submitted with
documentary proof (i) of each purchase and, if applicable, sale
transaction of Global common stock and (ii) demonstrating your
status as a beneficial owner of the Global common stock.  Any
such request for exclusion must be signed and submitted by you,
as the beneficial owner, under penalty of perjury.  The requests
for exclusion were to be submitted to the claims administrator no
later than March 27, 2018.

On March 27, 2018, Balyasny and Luxor submitted requests for
exclusion.  The Counsel for Balyasny, Lowenstein Sandler LLP,
wrote to the claims administrator, Garden City Group, on or
before the opt-out deadline, identifying funds owned by Balyasny,
and stating that they request to be excluded from the Settlement
Class in In re TerraForm Global Inc. Securities Litigation, and
retain their rights and claims vis-Ö-vis TerraForm Global.  The
letter included contact information for attorneys at Lowenstein
Sandler and for an individual at Balyasny.

Attached to the letter is a signed statement submitted under
penalty of perjury by Adam Finger, general counsel to Balyasny.
The submission attaches a 31-page spreadsheet that reflects the
Balyasny funds' transactions in TerraForm Global common stock,
including date, share price and quantity of sale or purchase.
Each page contains data on approximately 45 transactions.

Luxor also wrote to the claims administrator by letter from its
counsel, Lowenstein Sandler, with the same boldfaced request for
exclusion from the settlement class as submitted by Balyasny.
The letter, submitted before the opt-out date, includes contact
information for outside counsel and for the general counsel of
Luxor.  It attaches a signed statement submitted under penalty of
perjury by Norris Nissim, general counsel to Luxor.  The
submission attaches a six-page spreadsheet that lists the Luxor
funds' transactions in TerraForm Global common stock, including
date, share price and quantity of sales and purchases.  Each page
contains data on approximately 45 transactions.

Upon application of the lead Plaintiff, the Court issued an Order
to Show Cause on April 29, 2018, directing the Balyasny and Luxor
funds to show cause as to why their requests for exclusion from
the class should not be deemed invalid.  The lead Plaintiff urges
that the submissions of Balyasny and Luxor do not satisfy the
requirements of the Notice because they fail to attach
"documentary proof" in the form of "trade confirmations,
brokerage statements or similar documentation.

Balyasny and Luxor note that the Notice to the class does not
specify any particular forms of "documentary proof," such as
brokerage statements.  They argue that it would be inconsistent
with due process and Rule 23(c)(2)(B) to improvise additional
documentation requirements.  A Lowenstein Sandler attorney states
that he personally created the trading-data charts based on raw
data delivered by the two funds, and that brokerage statements on
behalf of the Balyasny funds alone would exceed 30,000 pages and
include transactions unrelated to TerraForm Global.

Having reviewed the exclusion requests of Balyasny and Luxor,
Judge Castel comfortably finds that they satisfy the requirements
of the Notice. The Notice does not specify that any particular
types of documentation must be submitted. It requires
"documentary proof (i) of each purchase and, if applicable, sale
transaction of Global common stock and (ii) demonstrating your
status as a beneficial owner of the Global common stock." Signed
statements from Balyasny and Luxor, submitted under penalty of
perjury, specifically state that the entities "are the beneficial
owners of the applicable securities," and annex a summary of
transactions prepared by counsel, based on the trading data
maintained by those entities.

The opt-out submissions must satisfy the requirements of the
Notice, which in turn, must satisfy the "plain, easily
understood" language requirement of Rule 23(c)(2)(B).  In Plummer
v. Chemical Bank, which involved a class certified under Rule
23(b)(2), the Court noted that Rule 23, as it then existed, does
not require opt-out plaintiffs to file written reasons for their
exercise of choice.  Any reasonable indication of a desire to opt
out should suffice.

In In re WorldCom, Inc. Securities Litigation, a dispute arose as
to whether a class member mailed a request for exclusion.  Judge
Cote observed that the sparse case law on the issue suggests, and
the practicalities of class action administration require, that
the burden be on the class member to establish that he or she
made a sufficient effort to communicate an intent to opt out
through the appropriate channels.  The class member must show
that notice was effectively and timely communicated.  Because
flexibility in making this determination is appropriate, any
written evidence' containing a `reasonable indication of a desire
to opt out ought to be sufficient.

The Judge holds that Balyasny and Luxor's unmistakable intent to
opt out also weighs in favor of their exclusion from the class.

For the foregoing reasons, he finds that the opt-out submissions
of Balyasny and Luxor complied with the Court-approved Notice to
the Class.  Balyasny and Luxor are excluded from the proposed
settlement class in the above-captioned action.

MDL 2836: Law Enforcement's Suit vs Merck Consolidated
------------------------------------------------------
The case captioned as LAW ENFORCEMENT HEALTH BENEFITS INC., on
behalf of itself and all others similarly situated, the
Plaintiff, v. MERCK & CO., INC.; MERCK SHARP & DOHME CORP.;
SCHERING-PLOUGH CORP.; SCHERING CORP.; MSP SINGAPORE CO. LLC;
GLENMARK PHARMACEUTICALS, LTD.; GLENMARK GENERICS INC., U.S.A.;
and PAR PHARMACEUTICAL, INC., the Defendants, Case No. 1:18-cv-
01900, was transferred from the U.S. District Court for the
Eastern District of New York, to U.S. District Court for the
Eastern District of Virginia (Norfolk) on June 19, 2018. The
Virginia Eastern District Court assigned Case No. 2:18-cv-01003-
RBS-DEM to the proceeding. The case is assigned to the Hon. Judge
Rebecca Beach Smith.

The Law Enforcement case is being consolidated with MDL 2836 re:
Zetia (Ezetimibe) Antitrust Litigation. The MDL was created by
Order of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict
Litigation on June 6, 2018. The actions share factual issues
arising from allegations that defendants engaged in an unlawful
scheme to delay the introduction of generic competitors to
Merck's cholesterol drug Zetia. These issues, which include the
merits of a decade-old patent infringement action, appear
complex, and likely to require significant discovery.
Centralization would avoid duplication of that discovery, as well
as eliminate the potential for inconsistent rulings on class
certification and other pretrial matters. In its June 6, 2018
Order, the MDL Panel found these actions involve common questions
of fact, and that centralization in the Eastern District of
Virginia will serve the convenience of the parties and witnesses
and promote the just and efficient conduct of this
litigation.[BN]

MDL 2836: Self-Insured Schools' Suit vs Merck Consolidated
----------------------------------------------------------
The lawsuit captioned as SELF-INSURED SCHOOLS OF CALIFORNIA, on
behalf of itself and all others similarly situated, the
Plaintiff, v. MERCK & CO., INC.; MERCK SHARP & DOHME CORP.;
SCHERING-PLOUGH CORP.; SCHERING CORP.; MSP SINGAPORE CO. LLC; PAR
PHARMACEUTICAL, INC.; GLENMARK PHARMACEUTICALS LTD.; and GLENMARK
GENERICS INC., U.S.A., the Defendants, Case No. 8:18-cv-00487,
was transferred from the U.S. District Court for the Central
District of California, to U.S. District Court for the Eastern
District of Virginia (Norfolk) on June 21, 2018. The Virginia
Eastern District Court assigned Case No. 2:18-cv-01004-RBS-DEM to
the proceeding. The case is assigned to the Hon. Judge Rebecca
Beach Smith.

The Self-Insured Schools case is being consolidated with MDL 2836
re: Zetia (Ezetimibe) Antitrust Litigation. The MDL was created
by Order of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict
Litigation on June 6, 2018. The actions share factual issues
arising from allegations that defendants engaged in an unlawful
scheme to delay the introduction of generic competitors to
Merck's cholesterol drug Zetia. These issues, which include the
merits of a decade-old patent infringement action, appear
complex, and likely to require significant discovery.
Centralization would avoid duplication of that discovery, as well
as eliminate the potential for inconsistent rulings on class
certification and other pretrial matters. In its June 6, 2018
Order, the MDL Panel found these actions involve common questions
of fact, and that centralization in the Eastern District of
Virginia will serve the convenience of the parties and witnesses
and promote the just and efficient conduct of this
litigation.[BN]

MINA GROUP: Fails to Pay Regular & OT Wages, Freeman Says
---------------------------------------------------------
JENNIFER FREEMAN, individually, and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. THE MINA GROUP, LLC, MG-101
CAL, LLC and DOES 1 through 100, inclusive, the Defendants, Case
No. CGC-18-567288 (Cal. Super. Ct., June 14, 2018), seeks to
recover unpaid regular and overtime wages, including unpaid
compensation for meal and/or rest period violations, interest
thereon, liquidated damages and other penalties, injunctive and
other equitable relief, and reasonable attorneys' fees and costs
under the California Labor Code.

According to the complaint, the Defendant has had a consistent
policy of (1) unlawfully denying Plaintiff and Class Members
statutorily-mandated meal and rest periods, (2) willfully failing
to provide Plaintiff and Class Members with accurate semimonthly
itemized wage statements reflecting the total number of hours

MITEL NETWORKS: Witmer Balks at Merger Deal with Searchlight
------------------------------------------------------------
The case, COLLEEN WITMER, Individually and On Behalf of All
Others Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. MITEL NETWORKS
CORPORATION, JOHN P. MCHUGH, PETER D. CHARBONNEAU, BENJAMIN H.
BALL, DAVID M. WILLIAMS, TERENCE H. MATTHEWS, MARTHA H. BEJAR,
RICHARD D. MCBEE, and SUDHAKAR RAMAKRISHNA, the Defendants, Case
No. 1:18-cv-05672 (S.D.N.Y., June 21, 2018), stems from a
proposed transaction announced on April 24, 2018, pursuant to
which Mitel Networks Corporation will be acquired by affiliates
of Searchlight Capital Partners, L.P.

On April 23, 2018, Mitel's Board of Directors caused the Company
to enter into an arrangement agreement with MLN Acquisition Co
ULC and MLN TopCo Ltd. Pursuant to the terms of the Arrangement
Agreement, shareholders of Mitel will receive $11.15 in cash for
each share of Mitel common stock. On June 8, 2018, Defendants
filed a proxy statement with the United States Securities and
Exchange Commission in connection with the Proposed Transaction.
The Proxy Statement, which scheduled a stockholder vote on the
Proposed Transaction for July 10, 2018, omits material
information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which
renders the Proxy Statement false and misleading.

Mitel Networks is a telecommunications company providing unified
communications solutions for business.[BN]

MO'S FISHERMAN: Court Denies Decertification Bid in "Rivera" Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, ERICK RIVERA et al., Plaintiffs, on behalf of
themselves and others similarly situated, v. MO'S FISHERMAN
EXCHANGE, INC. et al., Defendants, Civil Action No. ELH-15-1427
(D. Md.), Judge Ellen Lipton Hollander of the U.S. District Court
for the District of Maryland (i) denied the Defendants' motion to
decertify the collective action; (ii) granted in part and denied
in part the Plaintiffs' motion for partial summary judgment; and
(iii) granted in part and denied in part the Defendants' cross
motion for partial summary judgment.

Plaintiffs Melvin Mendoza, Rivera, and Armando Portillo filed the
initial Complaint on May 19, 2015.  The Defendants answered on
Nov. 3, 2015.  he action was conditionally certified on June 22,
2016. An Amended Complaint was filed on March 21, 2017, and the
Second Amended Complaint was docketed July 19, 2017.

According to the Plaintiffs, there are currently 30 Plaintiffs in
the case, all of whom are former employees of Mo's.  They were
employed in various positions, including as servers, bartenders,
busboys, food preparers, cooks, and dishwashers.  The majority of
them received tips.  Therefore, those individuals were paid at a
below-minimum wage rate.  However, they allege that their tips
were frequently withheld or taken by the Defendants, either
because the Defendants deducted a 3% credit card processing fee
from their tips, or because the Plaintiffs were required to
reimburse the restaurants for their customers' unpaid bills.

Many Plaintiffs claim unpaid overtime wages.  They allege that
during certain weeks they worked more than 40 hours, but were not
paid time-and-a-half wages for their overtime hours.  In
addition, they allege that they were denied their straight-time
wages for extended periods.

In a Second Amended Complaint, Rivera, Edwin Garcia Sosa, Pierre
Etheridge, and Dallas Royer, on behalf of themselves and others
similarly situated, filed a wage action against seven
corporations that operate six restaurants at which they
previously worked: Mo's Fisherman's Exchange, Inc. (doing
business as Mo's and Mo's Towson); Mo's Pulaski Highway Corp.
(doing business as Mo's White Marsh, Mo's Seafood Restaurant, and
Mo's); Mo's Crab and Pasta Factory, Inc. (doing business as Mo's
Crab & Pasta and Mo's Little Italy); Mo's Belair Seafood, Inc.
(doing business as Mo's Fisherman's Wharf and Mo's Inner Harbor);
Mo's Fisherman's Ritchie Highway, Inc. (doing business as  Mo's
Seafood Factory); Mo's Eastern Avenue, Inc. (doing business as
Mo's Seafood Factory Neighborhood Bar & Grill, and Mo's
Neighborhood Bar & Grill); and Fisherman's Wharf Inner Harbor,
Inc. (doing business as Mo's Fisherman's Wharf and Mo's Inner
Harbor).  The Plaintiffs also sued defendant Mohammed S.
Manocheh, who owns and operates each of the restaurants.

In particular, the Plaintiffs allege violations of the Fair Labor
Standards Act ("FLSA"); the Maryland Wage and Hour Law ("MWHL");
and the Maryland Wage Payment and Collection Law ("MWPCL").  They
assert, inter alia, that the Defendants willfully failed to pay
them the wages due and owing, including minimum wages and
overtime wages.

The Plaintiffs subsequently moved to certify the FLSA claim as a
collective action under 29 U.S.C. Section 216(b).  By Memorandum
Opinion and Order of June 23, 2016, Judge Hollander granted
conditional certification.  Thereafter, numerous individuals
opted into the suit.  Since then, quite a number of named and
opt-in Plaintiffs were voluntarily dismissed, including the
original named Plaintiff, Melvin Mendoza.

Four motions are now pending; the Memorandum Opinion addresses
three of them.  The Defendants have filed a motion to decertify
the collective action, asserting that the Plaintiffs are not
similarly situated.  The Plaintiffs oppose the Motion to
Decertify and have submitted many exhibits.  The Defendants
replied.

Also pending are the parties' cross-motions for partial summary
judgment.  The Plaintiffs moved for partial summary judgment on
the issues of Defendant Manocheh's personal liability under the
FLSA and the Defendants' ability to claim a "tip credit" under
the FLSA.

The Defendants have filed a combined opposition to the
Plaintiffs' Motion and a cross-motion for partial summary
judgment on the issues of their eligibility for the "tip credit"
and the Plaintiffs' entitlement to overtime wages prior to July
1, 2014.

In addition, the Plaintiffs have filed a Motion for Sanctions for
Spoliation of Evidence.  That motion is not addressed in the
Memorandum Opinion.

Judge Hollander denied the Motion to Decertify.  However, she
says the trial will proceed on the basis of the three subclasses,
as outlined.  She denied the Plaintiffs' Motion as to Manocheh's
liability, the Defendants' 3% credit card deduction from the
Plaintiffs' tips, and the Defendants' policy of requiring the
Plaintiffs to cover customers' checks.  And, the Judge granted
the Plaintiffs' Motion as to the Defendants' failure to provide a
tip credit notice to 16 Plaintiffs.  As for the Defendants'
Motion, she granted it only as to the issue of overtime pay under
the MWHL prior to July 1, 2014, and denied it as to all other
issues.

Among other things, the Judge disagrees with the Defendants'
motion to decertify.  First, to the extent that the Plaintiffs'
claims are difficult to adjudicate because the Defendants lack
proper documentation of the Plaintiffs' work, the Defendants
should not benefit from their lax accounting.  Second, several of
the Defendants' defenses appear to concern the amount of damages
rather than the question of liability.  Testimony regarding
dates, hours and pay rate does not affect certification of the
collective action or impact the determination of whether the
Defendants practices violate the FLSA.

The Judge is persuaded that it is appropriate to divide the case
into three subclasses or groups: (1) the Plaintiffs who claim
unpaid overtime wages; (2) those who claim their tips were
illegally withheld or stolen; and (3) the Plaintiffs who claim
they were not paid straight wages for extended periods.  Dividing
the Plaintiffs into separate groups, she says, will reduce the
risk of confusion and promote effective claim management.  And,
she hasauthority to divide the members of the collective into
groups, for convenience.

Each of these three subclasses could have achieved certification
independently.  But, it is not necessary to decertify them simply
because the Plaintiffs initially sought pre-discovery
certification on a common basis.  Grouping the Plaintiffs will
spare the parties, as well as the Court, the unnecessary burden
of multiple trials involving much of the same evidence.  The
details of the mechanics need not be resolved at this time.

As to the Plaintiffs' motion for partial summary judgment, the
Judge finds that Manocheh's interactions with employees,
especially his occasional directives to them and his attention to
restaurant finances, may indicate that Manocheh is more clearly
an "employer" with respect to the Plaintiffs than Catsimatidis.
However, the extent of Manocheh's involvement in the employment
side of the business appears to be disputed.  As a result, she
cannot conclude, as a matter of law, that Manocheh is an employer
with respect to the Plaintiffs for purposes of the FLSA.

In addition, the Defendants assert that the missing tip credit
notice sheets were "apparently lost," but offer no evidence that
they were ever signed, other than broad statements from the
managers' depositions that "everybody got the paper."  The Judge
finds that there is no genuine dispute over the fact that at
least 16 Plaintiffs belatedly received notice or did not
adequately receive notice at all.  Therefore, as to these 16
Plaintiffs, she says the Defendants cannot claim the tip credit
for any hours worked prior to when they can prove the Plaintiffs
were given notice.

Finally, the Plaintiffs concede that, prior to July 1, 2014, the
MWHL did not afford them overtime protections.  Therefore, the
Judge granted the Defendants' Motion on this question, without
prejudice to the Plaintiffs' right to argue that the Defendants'
violations of the FLSA were willful.

MOUNTAIN FARMS: Suarez Seeks Unpaid Minimum & OT Wages under FLSA
-----------------------------------------------------------------
JORGE FREDY RAMIREZ SUAREZ and ENMANUEL ELIEZER PERALTA,
individually and on behalf of others similarly situated, the
Plaintiffs, v. MOUNTAIN FARMS, INC. (d/b/a DELMONICO), PAUL
PREVITI, and KYU OK HAN, the Defendants, Case No. 1:18-cv-05298
(S.D.N.Y., June 12, 2018), seeks to recover unpaid minimum and
overtime wages pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the
New York Labor Law.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiffs are former employees
of Defendants. The Plaintiffs were employed as cleaners and food
preparers. The Plaintiffs regularly worked for Defendants in
excess of 40 hours per week without appropriate minimum wage or
overtime compensation for any of the hours that they worked.

Rather, Defendants failed to maintain accurate recordkeeping of
their hours worked and failed to pay Plaintiffs the minimum wage
rate and overtime compensation for any hours worked over 40,
either at the straight rate of pay or for any additional overtime
premium. Further, Defendants failed to pay Plaintiffs the
required "spread of hours" pay for any day in which they worked
over 10 hours per day. Furthermore, Defendants repeatedly failed
to pay Plaintiff Herrera wages on a timely basis. Defendants'
conduct extended beyond Plaintiffs to all other similarly
situated employees.

Defendant, Case No. 2:18-cv-00480-EJF (D. Utah, June 13, 2018),
seeks to recover damages and declaratory under the Fair Debt
Collections Practices Act.

According to the complaint, some time prior to June 13, 2017, an

household purposes, specifically Crest Financial lends money for
personal and household goods.

The alleged Crest Financial obligation is a "debt" as defined by
15 U.S.C. section 1692a(5). Crest Financial is a "creditor" as
defined by 15 U.S.C. section 1692a(4). Crest Financial or a
subsequent owner of the Crest Financial debt contracted the
Defendant to collect the alleged debt. The Defendant collects and
attempts to collect debts incurred or alleged to have been
incurred for personal, family or household purposes on behalf of
creditors using the United States Postal Services, telephone and
internet.[BN]

NEW YORK: Court Grants Summary Judgment in "Miller" EPA Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, SHIRLEY MILLER, et al., Plaintiffs, v. THE CITY OF
NEW YORK, Defendant, Case No. 15cv7563 (S.D. N.Y.), Judge William
H. Pauley, III, of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York granted the City's motion for summary
judgment.

In October 2016, the Court, on consent, conditionally certified a
collective action on the Plaintiffs' Equal Pay Act ("EPA") claim
and certified a class action on the Plaintiffs' New York State
Human Rights Law ("SHRL") and New York City Human Rights Law
("CHRL") claims.  Both classes were defined as female employees
who are or were employed as school crossing guards ("School
Crossing Guards") from September 2012 through December 2016.
Approximately 1,600 School Crossing Guards opted into the
collective action, and the SHRL and CHRL classes consist of over
2,000 individuals.

School Crossing Guards work for the New York City Police
Department ("NYPD"), and are tasked with managing the flow of
children and their parents at intersections near schools.  They
do not sit for a civil service examination or undergo
psychological testing.  There is no educational requirement or
need to possess a driver's license.  They receive one week of
training.

While School Crossing Guards must be familiar with traffic
regulations, they do not enforce them.  They are not authorized
to issue tickets and do not carry radios or electronic equipment.
They work a maximum of five hours per day and do not work nights,
holidays, or weekends.

The NYPD also employs traffic enforcement agents.  The crux of
the Plaintiffs' claims is that School Crossing Guards are paid
less than Traffic Enforcement Agents Level II ("Traffic
Enforcement Agents"), even though they claim to do substantially
the same work.

In contrast to School Crossing Guards, Traffic Enforcement Agents
perform a variety of duties.  Unlike School Crossing Guards,
Traffic Enforcement Agents are taught to stay in the intersection
and do not stand on the sidewalk.  The qualifications to be a
Traffic Enforcement Agent are more rigorous than those for School
Crossing Guards.  First, a Traffic Enforcement Agent must have
served as a Traffic Enforcement Agent Level I.  To qualify as a
Traffic Enforcement Agent Level I, an applicant must pass a
written exam, psychological evaluation, medical screening, drug
screening, background investigation, and physical fitness test.
A Traffic Enforcement Agent Level I applicant must possess a
four-year high school diploma and a valid driver's license.  A
Traffic Enforcement Agent Level I receives 10-11 weeks of
training on topics including New York traffic laws, radio call
signals and transmissions, hand signals, and field training.
When promoted to a Traffic Enforcement Agent Level II, an
individual receives additional training on directing traffic.

At the time that the case was filed, Traffic Enforcement Agents
received an annual salary ranging from $33,751 to $40,930 per
year, which equates to approximately $16.16 to $19.60 per hour.
In contrast, School Crossing Guards were paid at an hourly rate
ranging between $11.79 and $14.40 per hour.  Compensation for
Traffic Enforcement Agents and School Crossing Guards are set
pursuant to separate collective bargaining agreements.
Approximately 44% of Traffic Enforcement Agents are female, while
56% are male.  Approximately 96% of School Crossing Guards are
female, while 4% are male.

The City of New York moves for summary judgment in the class
action brought by female New York City school crossing guards
claiming violations of the EPA, SHRL, and CHRL.

Judge Pauley finds that the fact that Traffic Enforcement Agents
are occasionally assigned to School Crossing Guard posts is a
matter of necessity required when School Crossing Guards do not
report as scheduled for work.  As Traffic Manager Joseph Ellis
III explained, Traffic Enforcement Agents are assigned to those
posts temporarily, and then return to their assigned duties.  The
Judge holds that substantial differences in two positions, such
as those customarily associated with differences in wage levels
when the jobs are performed by persons of one sex only, will
ordinarily demonstrate an inequality as between the jobs
justifying differences in pay.  No reasonable juror could find an
EPA violation based on the substantial differences between a
School Crossing Guard and Traffic Enforcement Agent.

He also finds that the Plaintiffs do not contend that they were
paid less than male School Crossing Guards.  Instead, they
compare themselves to male Traffic Enforcement Agents.  But all
that the Plaintiffs point to in arguing that these positions are
similarly situated is that some work duties overlap.  He says
this ignores the myriad factors, such as education, training, job
requirements, job responsibilities, hours worked, and similar
working conditions, all of which need to be considered.  He has
already explained those differences.  In short, Traffic
Enforcement Agents and School Crossing Guards are not similarly
situated in all material respects to substantiate a SHRL claim.
Accordingly, no reasonable jury could find that the Plaintiffs
establish a prima facie case under the SHRL.

Finally, the Judge finds that the Plaintiffs cannot compare
themselves to Traffic Enforcement Agents, as they are not
similarly situated.  This is fatal to their prima facie case.
They also fail to offer any proof of discriminatory animus.
There is no evidence in this record of a discriminatory motive
underlying the disparate pay rates of School Crossing Guards and
Traffic Enforcement Agents.  He says the mere existence of a
statistical imbalance between a covered entity's challenged
demographic composition and the general population is not alone
sufficient to establish a prima facie case of disparate impact
violation unless there is an identifiable policy or practice or
group of policies or practices that allegedly causes the
imbalance.  The Plaintiffs point to no such policy.  Nor could
they, given that 44% of Traffic Enforcement Agents are female.

For these reasons, Judge Pauley granted the City of New York's
motion for summary judgment dismissing the action.  He directed
the Clerk of Court to terminate all pending motions and mark the
case as closed.

Matthew Daus was the chairperson of the NYC Taxi and Limousine

The appellate case is captioned as Nnebe, et al. v. Daus, et al.,
Case No. 18-1254, in the United States Court of Appeals for the
Second Circuit.

As reported in the Class Action Reporter on May 8, 2018, the

NEW YORK, NY: Second Circuit Appeal Filed in "Calvo" Class Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiffs Susan Calvo, Pedro Camacho, John Peters Professional
Limousines, Inc., Jacklyn Restrepo, Eamon Yuel and Yong Zhang
filed an appeal from a court ruling in their lawsuit titled
Calvo, et al. v. The City Of New York, et al., Case No. 14-cv-
7246, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New
York (New York City).

As reported in the Class Action Reporter on June 5, 2018, the
District Court denied the Plaintiffs' Second Motion for Class
Certification.

The case involves the former policy and practice of Defendant
City of New York to seize vehicles that were suspected of being
used illegally as vehicles for hire without a warrant and prior
to a hearing.  After the District Court decided that the City's
practice was unconstitutional as applied to so-called first time
violators, the Plaintiffs sought class certification, which was
denied without prejudice because Plaintiffs failed to propose a
class defined in such a way that everyone within it had standing.

The appellate case is captioned as Calvo, et al. v. The City Of
New York, et al., Case No. 18-1666, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the Second Circuit.[BN]

NOBLE HOUSE: Court Refuses to Stay "Holt" Suit
----------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Southern District of
California denied Defendant's Motion to Stay the case captioned
KATHLEEN HOLT, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. NOBLE HOUSE HOTELS & RESORT, LTD.; and
DOES 1 TO 25, Defendants, Case No. 17cv2246-MMA (BLM) (S.D.
Cal.), pending the outcome of two test cases raising nearly
identical issues.

The Plaintiff filed this putative class action Complaint against
Defendant Noble House Hotels & Resort, LTD (Noble House) alleging
causes of action for violations of California's False Advertising
Law (FAL), California Business and Professions Code sections
17500; California's Unfair Competition Law (UCL), California
Business and Professions Code sections 17200; and California's
Consumers Legal Remedy Act (CLRA), California Business and
Professions Code sections 1750.

Noble House moves to stay this action pending resolution of the
two test cases in San Diego Superior Court, arguing that
resolution of the test cases will provide guidance to this Court.
The Plaintiff opposes, arguing that resolution of the two test
cases will not be binding on this Court and will only postpone
the Court's decision in this case.

Here, the Court finds that a stay would result in the potential
of prejudicing the Plaintiff with regard to delayed discovery.
First, a stay may result in uncertainty for an indefinite period
of time as the test cases' schedule is likely to be delayed.
Second, if the Court grants a stay in this case, she may struggle
to obtain receipts or credit-card related information from third-
party vendors with potentially short retention periods.

The Court finds that a stay in this case is inappropriate. Noble
House has not shown this is one of those rare circumstances where
a party in one case must stand aside while a litigant in another
settles the rule of law that will define the rights of both.

Accordingly, the Court denies Noble House's motion to stay
pending resolution of the two test cases in state court.

OAK RIVER: Wins Summary Judgment in "Shelby" Insurance Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Western District of
Missouri, Western Division, granted Defendant's Motion for
Summary Judgment in the case captioned QUENTON SHELBY,
Individually and on Behalf of Others Similarly Situated,
Plaintiff, v. OAK RIVER INSURANCE COMPANY, Defendant, No. 4:17-
cv-0224-DGK (W.D. Mo.).

This lawsuit is an attempt to recover on an uncontested judgment
entered in state court. This dispute originated in a separate
lawsuit brought by a used car dealer, Miller Investment Group
("MIG"), against Plaintiff Quenton Shelby ("Shelby") for a
deficiency on his secured car loan. In response to MIG's suit,
the Plaintiff filed a class-action counter-claim alleging MIG
violated the UCC and engaged in a deceptive pattern in
repossessing cars. MIG subsequently entered into a class-wide
settlement with the Plaintiff and assigned any claims it had
against its insurers to the Plaintiff and the other class
members. The Plaintiff subsequently filed this lawsuit seeking to
recover under insurance policies issued by Defendant Oak River
Insurance Company ("Oak River") for a "garage business."

Holding that Oak River owed no duty to defend or indemnify MIG
because the claims did not stem from "garage operations," the
motion is granted.

The proposed settlement agreement required MIG to take various
actions, including agreeing that it: ". . . will not contest a
judgment being entered against it in an amount to be determined
by the Court, comprising damages for wrongful repossession,
libel/slander/defamation, invasion of privacy, and other
uncertain or hard to quantify damages, plus prejudgment interest
and post-judgment interest.  Shelby will seek a judgment equal to
the statutory damages provided in Section 9-625, the time price
differential (finance charge) paid by the Settlement Class, plus
prejudgment interest and post-judgment interest. The judgment
shall indicate only $450,000 may be satisfied from MIG's assets
for its obligations required under this Agreement and any
remaining amount may only be satisfied from MIG's insurance
policies in effect during the class period."

Under Missouri law, an insurer which announces a specific defense
to an insured's claim in a denial letter can be estopped from
subsequently relying on an inconsistent theory if the
announcement lulls the insured into relying on the insurer's
statement to his detriment.
In this case, Oak River has not asserted an inconsistent defense,
nor has MIG been prejudiced. The denial letter stated coverage
did not exist because there was no accident, bodily injury, or
property damage. Subsequently, in this litigation, Oak River
added to this list of defenses by arguing that the claims also
did not result from garage operations. Oak River's defense is not
inconsistent with these. In fact, the addition of this defense is
perfectly consistent with the language in the denial letter
cautioning that Oak River was not waiving its rights under any
other provision of the Policies," and that it might assert such
rights at some later time.

Even if this defense were somehow inconsistent with those claimed
in the denial letter, there has been no prejudice. Far from being
caught flat-footed by Oak River's defense, Shelby was well aware
of it. Indeed, his attorneys attempted to thwart this potential
defense by including in the proposed order approving the
settlement language describing the damages as compensatory
damages resulting from MIG's negligent conduct as part of
operations necessary or incidental to MIG's garage business.
Hence, Oak River is not estopped from raising it.

Because the Court holds the claims in the litigation do not
result from garage operations, there is no coverage under the
Policies, and Oak River is entitled to summary judgment.

PG&E CORPORATION: Weston Alleges Misleading Financial Reports
-------------------------------------------------------------
DAVID C. WESTON, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. PG&E CORPORATION, ANTHONY F.
EARLEY, JR., JASON P. WELLS, GEISHA J. WILLIAMS, CHRISTOPHER P.
JOHNS, DINYAR B. MISTRY, and DAVID S. THOMASON, the Defendants,
Case No. 3:18-cv-03509 (N.D. Cal., June 12, 2018), alleges that
Defendants violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934.

The case is a federal securities class action on beha1f of all
investors who purchased or otherwise acquired PG&E common stock
between April 29, 2015, and June 8, 2018, inclusive.

According to complaint, the Defendants failed to disclose a true
and accurate picture of PG&E's business, operations, and
financial condition. The Defendants publicly issued materially
false and misleading statements and omitted material facts
necessary to make Defendants' statements not false or misleading,
causing PG&E's common stock to be artificially inflated.
Plaintiff and other Class members purchased PG&E's common stock
at those artificially inflated prices, causing them to suffer the
damages complained.  When the truth about PG&E's misconduct and
its lack of operational and financial controls was revealed, the
value of the Company's common stock declined precipitously as the
prior artificial inflation no longer propped up its stock price.

The Pacific Gas and Electric Company is an investor-owned utility
with publicly traded stock that is headquartered in the Pacific
Gas & Electric Building in San Francisco.[BN]

PHOENIX, AR: Udd Seeks Overtime Pay under FLSA
----------------------------------------------
Darren Udd, filing individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. The City of Phoenix, the
Defendant, Case No. 2:18-cv-01868-MHB (D. Ariz., June 14, 2018),
seeks to recover overtime pay under Fair Labor Standards Act.

The Plaintiff and those similarly situated received compensation
from the City of Phoenix as hourly employees and were never
designated as exempt from the overtime provisions of the FLSA.
They were subject to a common set of payroll procedures and
bureau practices.

The Plaintiff and those similarly situated routinely worked well
in excess of 40 hours during most workweeks. While they received
overtime wages for a fraction of those overtime hours, it was
common practice for the Plaintiff and many other Bureau
detectives to work significant off-the-clock hours for which they
did not receive proper compensation or overtime pay.

The City of Phoenix maintains and operates the City of Phoenix
Police Department as its primary law enforcement agency. The City
provides the compensation and controls the terms and conditions
of employment of the individuals working in the Phoenix Police
Department. The law enforcement officers and detectives of the
Phoenix Police Department are represented by the Phoenix Law
Enforcement Association. The City of Phoenix and PLEA have
entered into a contract covering the employment of the members of
PLEA. The City of Phoenix is the legally recognized employer
under the FLSA.[BN]

and JOHN DOES 1-25, the Defendants, Case No. 3:18-cv-00375-CRS
(W.D. Ky., June 12, 2018), alleges that Defendants Violated the
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

According to the complaint, some time prior to August 11, 2017,
an obligation was allegedly incurred to Saint Mary & Elizabeth
Hospital. The SMEH obligation arose out of transactions in which
money, property, insurance or services were the subject of the
transactions. Specifically, this is a medical bill and Plaintiff
received these medical services primarily for personal, family or
household items. The alleged SMEH obligation is a "debt" as
defined by 15 U.S.C. section 1692a(5). SMEH is a "creditor" as
defined by 15 U.S.C. section 1692a(4). SMEH or Defendant Link, a
debt collector and the possible subsequent owner of the SMEH
debt, contracted the Defendant Phoenix to collect the alleged
debt. Defendants collect and attempt to collect debts incurred or
alleged to have been incurred for personal, family or household
purposes on behalf of creditors using the United States Postal
Services, telephone and internet.

Phoenix Financial Services LLC is a debt collection agency.[BN]

PRETIUM RESOURCES: Dismissal of "Martin" Suit Affirmed
------------------------------------------------------
In the case, GARY MARTIN, SANDRA LEE REYES-TROYER, Consolidated-
Plaintiffs-Appellants, MICHAEL YEO, Consolidated-Plaintiff-
Movant-Appellant, PRETIUM GROUP, TIM KOSOWSKI, individually and
on behalf of all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, RANDALL
DAMGAR, DENNIS P. SWEENEY, MARTIN MAYER, DIANA GARCIA,
Consolidated-Plaintiffs, v. ROBERT ALLAN QUARTERMAIN, KENNETH C.
McNAUGHTON, PRETIUM RESOURCES INC., Defendants-Appellees, PETER
ADRIAN JOHAN DE VISSER, Consolidated-Defendant-Appellee, JOSEPH
J. OVSENEK, JOHN SMITH, ROSS MITCHELL, TOM S.Q. YIP, SILVER
STANDARD RESOURCES INC., Defendants, Case No. 17-2135 (2d Cir.),
the U.S. Court of Appeals for the  Second Circuit affirmed the
district court's dismissal with prejudice of the Second
Consolidated Amended Class Action Complaint.

Holders of stock in Pretium brought the putative class action in
the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York
alleging that Pretium and three of its officers violated Sections
10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as well
as Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

On motion by Pretium, the district court dismissed the Second
Consolidated Amended Class Action Complaint ("complaint") with
prejudice.

Pretium acquired a gold-mining site known as the Brucejack
Project in 2010.  It then hired several independent experts to
assist with various aspects of the Project's development.
Snowden Mining Industry Consultants, retained to estimate the
quantity of gold that the Project could produce, issued a report
in 2012, recommending that Pretium mine a sample of the Project
to confirm the estimate before undertaking full-scale mining.

Pretium made the results of the Snowden Report public and hired
Strathcona Mineral Services Ltd. to oversee and report on a
sampling program.  It announced that it would release results
from the program as they were received, but that Strathcona would
report on the overall program at its conclusion.  The program
commenced in June 2013.

In a series of public filings and press releases issued over the
next few months, Pretium reported favorable results from the
sampling program and expressed continued faith in Snowden's
estimates.  Subsequent press releases confirmed the sampling
program's shift toward the Cleopatra Vein and indicated Pretium's
continued confidence in Snowden's projection of high-grade gold
mineralized domains in the Project.

Pretium's Oct. 9, 2013 press release announced that Strathcona
was resigning prior to the completion of the sampling program and
without issuing a report on it.  In a press release issued
roughly two weeks later, it disclosed Strathcona's opinion that
Pretium's previous public statements suggesting that Snowden's
estimates remained viable were "erroneous and misleading."
Pretium's stock price declined by roughly 30% on the day of each
October press release.  Three days after the second press release
was issued, the Plaintiffs commenced the securities-fraud action.

The gravamen of their claim is that Pretium artificially inflated
the value of its stock by making materially false and misleading
statements about the sampling program.  They, however, fail to
state a claim for securities fraud because none of the three
Pretium statements (or sets of statements) alleged to be
fraudulent actually constituted a material misrepresentation or
omission.

The complaint alleges that Pretium defrauded investors by
expressing continued faith in Snowden's estimates,
notwithstanding -- and without disclosing -- Strathcona's view
that the sampling program was not bearing out those projections.
The Appellate Court holds that this claim fails because the
complaint does not adequately plead that the Pretium statements
at issue were false or misleading.  Contrary to the Plaintiffs'
contention, these were statements of Pretium's opinion, rather
than assertions of purported fact.  They are therefore subject to
the standard set forth in Omnicare, Inc. v. Laborers Dist.
Council Constr. Indus. Pension Fund for analyzing whether a
statement of opinion is false or misleading.

The complaint alleges that Pretium defrauded investors by touting
the results of the sampling program without disclosing that
Pretium had skewed the program toward the narrow and
unrepresentative Cleopatra Vein in order to yield more favorable
data.  This claim fails because it was apparent from Pretium's
disclosures that the Cleopatra Vein was not representative of the
Project overall, the Judge says.

Finally, the complaint alleges that Pretium defrauded investors
by stating that it was planning, with Strathcona, to increase the
portion of the sample drawn from the Cleopatra Vein when, in
fact, Strathcona was not on board with that plan to "skew" the
sampling program.  The Judge holds this claim fails because the
Plaintiffs do not plausibly allege that the purported
misstatement was material.

The Court has considered the Plaintiffs' remaining arguments and
find them to be without merit.  For the foregoing reasons, it
affirmed the judgment of the district court.

PROCTER & GAMBLE: Court OKs Final Approval of $30.3MM Settlement
----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Southern District of
Ohio, Western Division, granted Defendant's Motion for Final
Approval of Class Action Settlement in the case captioned DINO
RIKOS, TRACEY BURNS, and LEO JARZEMBROWSKI, On behalf of
themselves and all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. THE
PROCTOR & GAMBLE COMPANY, Defendant, Case No. 1:11-cv-226 (S.D.
Ohio).

This case concerns the Defendant's labeling and advertising of
Align, an over-the-counter probiotic supplement. Align is
promoted as helping to build and maintain a healthy digestive
system, restore natural digestive balance, and protect against
occasional digestive upsets.  The Plaintiffs allege Align does
not deliver the advertised benefits.

Under the Settlement Agreement, Defendant will pay up to about
$30.3 million in settlement benefits, with a minimum of $20.3
million in benefits.

First, under the Settlement, Settlement Class Members may receive
a Cash Refund of up to $49.26 for three purchases of Align. The
Cash Refund amount represents 50% of Align's average retail
price. The Defendant will pay out up to $15 million in Cash
Refunds.  Second, in addition to Cash Refunds, the Defendant will
contribute a minimum of $5 million and up to $10 million worth of
Digestive Health Improvement Contributions (DHIC).

In the Sixth Circuit, district courts consider seven factors in
determining whether a class settlement is fair, reasonable, and
adequate: (1) the risk of fraud or collusion; (2) the complexity,
expense and likely duration of the litigation; (3) the amount of
discovery engaged in by the parties, (4) the likelihood of
success on the merits; (5) the opinions of class counsel and
class representatives; (6) the reaction of absent class members;
and (7) the public interest.

The Risk of Fraud or Collusion

The evidence before the Court clearly reflects that the
Settlement Agreement is the product of arms-length negotiations
conducted by experienced counsel on both sides. Nothing before
the Court suggests that the Settlement is the result of fraud or
collusion.  The parties to this case have been anything but
collusive; the Court has observed the parties engage in vigorous,
hard-fought litigation over the course of more than seven years.

The Complexity, Expense, and Likely Duration of the Litigation,
and the Likelihood of Success on the Merits.

The complexity, expense, and likely duration of this case weigh
in favor of approving the Settlement Agreement. The Plaintiffs
maintain an unflagging belief in the strength of their claims but
admit they must balance this against the risks they perceive to
be inherent in continuing to litigate. Specifically, the
Plaintiffs are concerned about language in the Sixth Circuit's
opinion that suggests the Plaintiffs will have to re-argue the
issue of class-certification or worse, lose on the merits if
Align is proven to work for any sub-population.

The Amount of Discovery Engaged in By the Parties

The Settlement was reached after the parties conducted
substantial fact and expert discovery on all relevant issues.
Accordingly, the Court finds that the Settlement was the result
of informed negotiations by experienced counsel.

The Opinions of Class Counsel and Class Representatives

The Class Representatives approve the Settlement Agreement. Class
Counsel believe this settlement is fair, adequate and reasonable.
This factor weighs in favor of approval.

The Reaction of Absent Class Members.

The reaction of the class strongly supports approval. The
deadline for Settlement Class Members to request to be excluded
from the Settlement Class was March 17, 2018; as of March 1,
2018, the Claims Administrator had not received any requests for
exclusion. The deadline for Settlement Class Members to submit or
file a claim is May 16, 2018; as of February 28, 2018, the Claims
Administrator had processed 151,445 claim forms. Five individuals
filed written objections to the settlement, but their written
objections are not well-taken.

Accordingly, the Court grants the parties' motions for final
approval of the Settlement Agreement.

RABOBANK N.A.: Villanueva Sues over Continued Overdraft Fee
-----------------------------------------------------------
JOE VILLANUEVA, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. RABOBANK, N.A., and DOES 1 through
20, inclusive, the Defendant, Case No. 37-2018-00028998-CU-BT-CTL
(Cal. Super. Ct., June 12, 2018), seeks to recover damages and
other relief from Rabobank for its alleged deceptive assessment
and collection of so-called continued overdraft fees from its
customers in violation of Rabobank's standardized account
agreement entitled "Agreement and Disclosures".

Continued overdraft fees are charges that certain banks impose on
customers when a checking/savings account remains overdrawn for a
period of time after the initial overdraft transaction.
Specifically, Rabobank charges its customers what it calls on its
bank statements a $5.00 "Continued Overdraft Fee" each day, for
up to ten days, after a Rabobank checking account remains
overdrawn. This charge is levied in addition to the $35.00 fee
that is levied on the customer for each charge made against an
overdrawn account, but Rabobank's account disclosures never
inform consumers that they will be charged both fees for an
overdraft. Indeed, Rabobank never informs its account holders
that it will charge a Continued OD Fee in its Deposit Agreement--
making no reference to such a fee (or the circumstances of its
application) whatsoever. The only supposed disclosure of the
Continued OD Fee is in the Bank's separate fee schedule, but that
disclosure nowhere states that both a $35 OD Fee and a $5 per day
Continued Fee will be charged for the same overdraft.

Rabobank, N.A. is a unit of the Rabobank Group, a leading
financial services provider for millions of customers
worldwide.[BN]

ROBERT HALF: Must Produce Docs for Class List in "Magallon"
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the case, BONNIE MAGALLON, on behalf of herself and all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. ROBERT HALF INTERNATIONAL,
INC., a foreign corporation, Defendant, Case No. 6:13-cv-01478-AA
(D. Or.), Judge Ann Aiken of the U.S. District Court for the
District of Oregon, Eugene Division, granted the Plaintiff's
motion to compel discovery for the purposes of compiling a
complete and accurate class membership list.

In this certified class action, the Plaintiff, on behalf of
herself and all others similarly situated, asserts that the
Defendant violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act ("FCRA").  The
Defendant operates a professional staffing service that matches
individuals seeking employment with employers.  It matches each
qualified applicant with a potential employer seeking someone
with the applicant's qualifications to fill a short-term or long-
term position.  The Defendant requires a background check of
applicants once they have matched and interviewed with an
employer.

In 2011, the Plaintiff applied for a job with RHI.  After she
matched and interviewed with a potential employer, RHI ordered a
background report from General Information Services, Inc.
("GIS").  RHI deemed her "not placeable" based on information
(criminal history) in that background report.  RHI did not give
the Plaintiff a copy of her background report until after it made
the "not placeable" decision and after she requested a copy of
the report.

The Plaintiff alleges that the Defendant violated 15 U.S.C.
Section 1681b(b)(3) when it rejected her application for
employment because of her criminal history without giving her
notice that it was using a background report to make an adverse
employment decision, providing her a copy of the report, or
offering her a meaningful opportunity to dispute the information
in the report.  She seeks statutory damages for willful
violations of the FCRA.

The case was filed on Aug. 22, 2013 and the parties engaged in
extensive class certification discovery for two years.  On July
20, 2015, the parties filed simultaneous motions regarding class
certification.

In an order dated Nov. 10, 2015, Judge Aiken certified the class
of all natural persons residing in the United States (including
territories and other political subdivisions) who: (i) applied
for temporary employment placement through RHI; (ii) about whom
RHI obtained a consumer report for employment purposes from the
General Information Services, Inc., from Aug. 22, 2008, until the
present;1 (iii) the consumer report contained either a red flag
or a yellow flag; and (iv) RHI determined the applicant was not
placeable.

After the class was certified, the Plaintiff began her attempts
to compile a class list.  The Judge granted requests to extend
discovery several times: once at the Plaintiff's (unopposed)
request, and twice in response to a joint request.  That initial
phase of class list discovery lasted 10 months.

On Sept. 15, 2016, the Plaintiff filed her first motion to compel
class list discovery.  The Defendant produced a spreadsheet of
4,600 individuals in response.  A majority of those individuals
listed class member status as "To Be Determined."  The 4,600
number stood in stark contrast to the 60,000 individuals for whom
defendant had previously reported obtaining red- or yellow-flag
background check reports from GIS in the relevant time period.

Following a telephonic conference on Nov. 16, 2016, the Judge
granted the motion in part and denied the motion in part.  She
holds that it is the Defendant's responsibility to identify the
class members and produce a complete and accurate class list.
The Judge acknowledges the Defendant's statements regarding
logistical difficulties identifying class members.  In view of
those difficulties, the Defendant is ordered to produce the class
list by May 15, 2017.  If it does not produce the class list
within that time period, the Judge will order it to produce the
information and records described on page 8 of the Plaintiff's
Motion to Compel Class List Discovery so that the Plaintiff can
independently compile the class list.  The Defendant's request
that the Plaintiff be ordered to pay part of the costs of
production is denied.

The second phase of class list discovery lasted 13 months, during
which time Judge Aiken granted three more joint requests to
extend discovery deadlines.  On June 17, 2017, the Defendant
produced an amended class list of 1,382 individuals.  On Nov. 3,
2017, the Plaintiff deposed Michael Hoffman, the Defendant's
employee responsible for compiling the class list.

The Plaintiff filed the instant second motion to compel class
list discovery on Dec. 20, 2017.  She argues that, at this point,
she is entitled to direct access to the Defendant's files in
order to compile an accurate class list because it has not made
diligent efforts to apply the objective criteria provided in the
class definition in compiling the class list.  The Plaintiff
contends that the Defendant's process likely has omitted
thousands of class members from the class list.  She now seeks
access to the Defendant's files in order to independently come up
with a class list.

The Plaintiff wants the Judge to order the Defendant to produce a
list of individuals who (1) were the subject of GIS background
reports ordered in during the relevant time period, (2) had red
or yellow flag notations on their GIS background reports, and (3)
were not placed with an employer within 30 days of the date of
their background check.

With respect to those individuals, the Plaintiff seeks access to
the following: (i) MicroJ+, PeopleSoft, and DocuSign files/notes;
(ii) inquiries to or communications from the legal department
concerning placeability and background check; (iii) pre-adverse
action letters; and (iv) signed arbitration acknowledgment forms
or arbitration agreement notes the Defendant believes that it has
made sufficient efforts to compile the class list and argues the
size of the class list merely reflects the objective criteria of
the class definition.

The Defendant makes three major arguments against further
production: (1) further discovery will be duplicative, (2)
largely confidential and/or privileged, and (3) unnecessarily
burdensome on it.  It asserts that the Plaintiff has already been
given all of the data the Defendant relied on in making the "non-
placeability" determination, that it has provided her with a
reasonably good class list, and that at some point the burden of
additional discovery outweighs getting the perfect list.

Judge Aiken ordered the Defendant to produce signed arbitration
acknowledgment forms, any DocuSign files indicating consent to
arbitration or opting out of arbitration, and/or notes concerning
arbitration for those on the Narrowed List.  Any individual who
did not opt out of arbitration and for whom defendant can produce
a signed arbitration agreement acknowledgement form can be
excluded from the list of individuals to whom the remainder of
the Order applies.

With respect to those individuals on the Narrowed List for whom
Defendant cannot produce a signed arbitration agreement
acknowledgment form, the Defendant is ordered to produce (or
otherwise grant the Plaintiff access to) MicroJ, PeopleSoft, and
DocuSign records for individuals on the Narrowed List who cannot
be excluded from membership based on arbitration documentation.
In view of the information in the Plaintiff's employment record,
the Judge finds it reasonably likely that there are other
potential class members that were missed during that partial data
pull.  She understands the burden of producing these records when
the databases, as the Defendant noted, do not share common data
points.  However, she notes that the Plaintiff's current request
is narrowed compared to the documents she sought in her first
motion to compel and finds that the risk of excluding significant
numbers of potential class members outweighs the burden on the
Defendants to produce these records.

The Judge also ordered the Defendants to produce all
communications sent or received by the legal department any paper
files of "branch inquiries" received by the legal department
concerning applicants on the Narrowed List who cannot be excluded
from class membership due to arbitration documentation.  It is
likely that some of the legal department communication notes are
scattered in various places, such as handwritten notes of
communications, notes entered into databases, or email
communications.  She understands that such communications may
take time to compile, but they are nonetheless pertinent to
determining an individual's placeability.  Once again, she finds
that the relevance of the records outweighs the burden on the
Defendant.

Finally, the Judge ordered the Defendants to produce pre-adverse
action letters in its possession for individuals on the Narrowed
List who cannot be excluded from class membership due to
arbitration documentation.  She explains that in the class
certification order, the heart of the parties' dispute is whether
RHI reaches a final placeability decision before or after
informing the applicant about the background report; the absence
or existence of a letter is not dispositive proof on that dispute
because some evidence in the record suggests that the meaningful
period within which to dispute the contents of an adverse GIS
report is during the internal review process, and that after the
'not placeable' decision is made, any opportunity given to an
applicant to dispute or explain the contents of the report is
illusory.  She finds that the likely relevance of the requested
documents outweighs the burden on the Defendants to produce those
documents.

Accordingly, Judge Aiken granted the Plaintiff's Second Motion to
Compel Class List Discovery.  She ordered the Defendant to
produce or otherwise give the Plaintiff access to the documents,
databases, and files described in more detail in the Opinion.

ROCKET EXPRESS: Osborn Sues over Wage & Hour Laws Violations
--------------------------------------------------------------
TYLER OSBORN, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. ROCKET EXPRESS, LLC, PELHAM COMMUNITY
PHARMACY, INC., WILLIAM GARDYNSKI, CAROL A. SANTORO and BHUREN PA
TEL, the Defendants, Case No. 18-1785 (Mass. Super. Ct., June 21,
2018), seeks to recover overtime pay in violations of the
Commonwealth's wage and hour laws.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff and the class he seeks
to represent are drivers for the Defendants who are misclassified
as independent contractors. Class Members are, in fact, employees
of the defendants under the Massachusetts Wage Act because they
are subject to the direction and control of the defendants, the
work Class Members perform is within the usual course of the
defendants' business, and none of the Class Members maintain
their own independent trades or businesses outside of the
Defendants' business.

As a result of this misclassification, Class Members suffered
great financial harm. The Defendants pass on a significant amount
of expenses to Class Members, which may not be lawfully imposed
on employees. These expenses include, but are not limited to:
expenses for work travel, maintenance costs, insurance, and
equipment fees. Moreover, while Class Members routinely work in
excess of 40 hours each workweek, the Defendants fail to pay them
overtime wages. The Defendants' actions are blatant violations of
the Commonwealth's wage and hour laws and caused Class Members
substantial harm.

SAJAHTERA INC: Violates Wage and Hour Laws, Martinez Says
---------------------------------------------------------
MARIA MARTINEZ, Individually, and on Behalf of All Other

Beverly Hills Hotel; DORCHESTER GROUP LTD., a Business Entity
Form Unknown; and DOES 1-100, inclusive, the Defendants, Case No.
BC709887 (Cal. Super. Ct., June 13, 2018), alleges that
Defendants violated the California Labor Code Private Attorneys
General Act of 2004.

According to the complaint, for nearly 19 years the Plaintiff has
been employed by Defendants as a non-exempt housekeeper at The
Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Throughout the
course of her employment, Plaintiff determinedly toiled for
Defendants by cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming, replacing linens and
towels, making beds, wiping down furnishings, and taking on any
and all other housekeeping duties assigned to her in an effort to
ensure that the guests' stay at the hotel lives up to the
luxurious experience which is uniquely found the Beverly Hills
Hotel. Defendants proclaims that for over a century, The Beverly
Hills Hotel has been the "ultimate beacon of glamour" that
provides its guests the opportunity to "Live like Hollywood
Royalty." However, this opportunity comes at the expense of
Plaintiff and other dedicated non-exempt employees as a result of
Defendants systematic and continuous violations of California's
wage and hour laws despite their employees' undivided and ongoing
loyalty to Defendants.

SAMUEL I WHITE: Davis Appeals E.D. Virginia Ruling to 4th Circuit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff Ronnie Davis filed an appeal from a court ruling in the
lawsuit titled Ronnie Davis v. Samuel I. White, P.C., Case No.
4:16-cv-00018-LRL, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern
District of Virginia at Newport News.

The appellate case is captioned as Ronnie Davis v. Samuel I.
White, P.C., Case No. 18-1467, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, Magistrate
Judge Lawrence R. Leonard granted the Defendant's Renewed Motion
to Dismiss, or in the Alternative, Motion for Summary Judgment.

The matter concerns real property formerly owned by the
Plaintiff, located at 5614 Fairfield Lane, in Hayes, Gloucester
County, Virginia.  On Nov. 25, 1998, the Plaintiff as honorably
discharged from the United States Army.  His military service
allowed him to obtain refinancing for his residential mortgage on
the Property through the Veterans Administration.

On April 18, 2015, the Plaintiff filed suit against the Defendant
in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland.  The
Defendant filed a Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State a Claim
on May 12, 2015.  In response, the Plaintiff filed an Amended
Complaint on June 5, 2015.

The Defendant filed a Second Motion to Dismiss for Failure to
State a Claim or to Strike First Amended Complaint on June 18,
2015.  Ultimately, the Maryland Action was disposed of by the
Hon. Richard D. Bennett's March 24, 2016 Memorandum Order and
Opinion.

On March 24, 2016, the case was officially transferred to the
Newport News division of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern
District of Virginia, pursuant to Judge Bennett's Memorandum
Order and Opinion.  The parties consented to Magistrate Judge
jurisdiction.[BN]

SAN DIEGO, CA: Court Approves $307K Settlement in HRMs' Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Southern District of
California granted granting the Joint Motion to Approve
Settlement Agreement in the case captioned BARRY LINKS, et al.,
Plaintiffs, v. CITY OF SAN DIEGO, Defendant, Case No. 3:17-cv-
00996-H-KSC (S.D. Cal.).

Plaintiffs Barry Links, Christopher Sovay, Steve Vandewalle,
Andrea Dominguez, Timothy Olson, and Brian Sanford, on behalf of
themselves and others similarly situated, allege that Defendant
City of San Diego violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by
failing to pay overtime wages. Each Plaintiff is employed by the
City's Fire-Rescue Department as a Helicopter Rescue Medic (HRM),
providing support services for helicopters designated as air
ambulances.

Bona Fide Dispute

Whether Plaintiffs were employees engaged in fire protection and
thus exempt from the FLSA's standard 40-hour workweek overtime
pay provision, constitutes a bona fide dispute over FLSA
provisions. The Plaintiffs contend that, as HRMs, they did not
have responsibility to engage in fire suppression for purposes of
Section 203(y)(1) and, therefore, were not exempt employees.  But
the Defendants maintain that the opposite is true, because four
of the six remaining Plaintiffs worked only on a relief basis as
HRMs and were employed on a full-time basis as firefighters.

The Court finds that the disputed issues of FLSA coverage and
potential liability here constitute a bona fide dispute.

Fair and Reasonable Resolution

First, the Court finds that the proposed settlement amount bears
a reasonable relationship to the Plaintiffs' range of possible
recovery. The parties performed extensive analysis of payroll and
time records that the City produced to the Plaintiffs. The Court
concludes this factor weighs in favor of FLSA settlement
approval.

Second, the Court evaluates the stage of proceedings and amount
of discovery completed in order to ensure the parties have an
adequate appreciation of the merits of the case before reaching a
settlement. The parties crafted their settlement agreement
through an in-person early neutral evaluation conference and
three subsequent telephone settlement conferences before the
Magistrate Judge.

The Court similarly finds that the serious risks of ongoing
litigation, as well as the views of counsel and participating
plaintiffs, favor approval of the Settlement Agreement. The
parties dispute key issues in this case and have weighed the
likelihood of prevailing on the merits of their respective claims
and defenses. The settlement terms, the parties conclude, signify
a fair compromise of the Plaintiffs' claims.

In conclusion, having carefully considered the totality of the
circumstances, the Court finds that the Settlement Agreement is a
fair and reasonable resolution of a bona fide dispute regarding
FLSA liability.

SANDBOX TRANSPORTATION: Barnes Suit Moved to District of Colorado
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled MATTHEW BARNES, on behalf of
himself and all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v.
SANDBOX TRANSPORTATION, LLC, the Defendant, Case No. 7:18-cv-
00050, was transferred from the U.S. District Court for Western
District of Texas, to the U.S. District Court for the District of
Colorado (Denver) on June 19, 2018. The Colorado District Court
Clerk assigned Case No. 1:18-cv-01535-STV to the proceeding. The
case is assigned to the Hon. Judge Scott T. Varholak.

Sandbox Transportation required and/or permitted Plaintiff, opt-
in Plaintiff, and all other similarly situated employees to work
in excess of 40 hours per week but refused to compensate them
properly for such hours. The Defendant's conduct is in violation
of the Fair Labor Standards Act, which requires employers to
compensate non-exempt employees for their overtime work. The
Plaintiffs are FLSA non-exempt workers who have been denied
overtime pay required by law, for which they now seek
recovery.[BN]

SCHOOLSFIRST FEDERAL: Harris Balks at Non-Sufficient Funds Fee
--------------------------------------------------------------
HOLLIE HARRIS, on behalf of herself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. SCHOOLSFIRST FEDERAL CREDIT
UNION, the Defendant, Case No. 37-2018-00028935-CU-CG-CTL (Cal.
Super. Ct., June 12, 2018), complains that SchoolsFirst charges
account holders a S22 non-sufficient funds ("NSF") fee when there
are insufficient funds to pay a transaction. Through the
imposition of NSF fees, SchoolsFirst makes millions of dollars a
year. These fees are, by definition, often assessed on consumers
struggling to make ends meet with minimal funds in their
accounts. In particular, an FDIC study has reported that OD and
NSF fees often fall disproportionately on racial and ethnic
minorities, the elderly, and the young. Every additional OD or
NSF Fee SchoolsFirst assesses can be devastating to those living
at the economic margins of our society. OD/NSF Fees must be
assessed sparingly (and consistently with SchoolsFirst's
contracts), if they are not to destroy the very accountholders on
whom they are assessed. Unfortunately, SchoolsFirst undertakes to
maximize NSF Fees with a deceptive practice which also violates
its contracts.

SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union is a federally chartered Credit
Union that serves the educational community in Southern
California.[BN]

Defendant, Case No. BC709631 (Cal. Super. Ct., June 12, 2018),
seeks to recover unpaid minimum and straight time wages and

The Defendants allegedly failed to pay Plaintiff for all hours

SEVIER COUNTY, TN: Whitlock Seek Overtime Pay under FLSA
--------------------------------------------------------
LARRY WHITLOCK, Individually, and on behalf of himself and other
similarly situated current and former employees, the Plaintiffs,
v. SEVIER COUNTY, TENNESSEE, the Defendant, Case No. 3:18-cv-
00233 (E.D. Tenn., June 12, 2018), alleges that Defendant
violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by failing to pay Plaintiff
and putative class members for all hours of work at the rates
required by the FLSA.

The Plaintiff and putative class members routinely worked in
excess of 40 hours per week but were not paid overtime for doing
this excessive work. Instead, Defendant either misclassified
Plaintiffs as exempt from the protections of the FLSA or ignored
the FLSA altogether by failing to pay proper regard to the number
of hours Plaintiff and putative class members actually worked or
guarantee proper payment of the overtime wage.

Sevier County is a county of the U.S. state of Tennessee.[BN]

SOUTH BAY: Court OKs Minor's Interest in Class Settlement
---------------------------------------------------------
Magistrate Judge Robert N. Block of the United States District
Court for the Southern District of California issued a Report and
Recommendation granting Plaintiffs' Petition for Approval of
Minor's Interest in Settlement of Action in the case captioned
AG, a minor, and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v.
SOUTH BAY DREAMS COOPERATIVE, INC., Defendant, Case No. 16-cv-
02598-L (RNB) (S.D. Cal.).

The Plaintiff alleges Defendant South Bay Dreams Cooperative,
Inc., negligently and/or willfully texted the Plaintiff on two
separate occasions without his prior express written consent, in
violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C.
(TCPA).

District courts have a special duty, derived from Federal Rule of
Civil Procedure 17(c), to safeguard the interests of litigants
who are minors. In the context of proposed settlements in suits
involving minor plaintiffs, this special duty requires a district
court to conduct its own inquiry to determine whether the
settlement serves the best interests of the minor.

The Plaintiff and the Defendant have reached a settlement that
will pay the sum of $8,000 to the Plaintiff's attorney, Joshua
Swigart.

The Plaintiff's natural parent and proposed guardian ad litem,
Alexis Gutierrez, finds the proposed settlement fair and
reasonable. A guardian ad litem may repudiate a settlement
agreement prior to court approval. That is not the case here.
Rather, Mr. Gutierrez received the proposed Settlement Agreement
from the Plaintiff's counsel on March 30, 2018, and thereafter
reviewed and discussed it with the Plaintiff's counsel. Based on
his review and discussion, the Plaintiff's parent believes the
Settlement Agreement, and the division of the monetary
settlement, to be equitable, fair, reasonable, and in the best
interests of his child.

In consideration of this, including the facts of the case, the
minor's specifics claims, and recovery in similar cases, the
Court finds the settlement to be fair and reasonable.

Accordingly, the Plaintiff's Application for Approval of Minor's
Interest in Settlement of Action is granted with the following
conditions:

   a. The Plaintiff's counsel will be paid $1,301.73 from the
settlement amount.

   b. The Plaintiff's settlement amount of $6,698.27 will be
disbursed to his natural parent for the benefit of the Plaintiff,
and placed in a blocked interest-bearing FDIC or NCUA insured
account held in the name of the Plaintiff from which no
withdrawals will be made without a court order until the
Plaintiff reaches the age of majority.

STATE FARM: Seeks Eighth Circuit Review of Ruling in "Vogt" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Defendant State Farm Life Insurance Company filed an appeal from
a court ruling in the lawsuit entitled Michael G. Vogt v. State
Farm Life Insurance Company, Case No. 2:16-cv-04170-NKL, in the
U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri -
Jefferson City.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, Mr. Vogt
moved for an order certifying a class of policy owners:

    "all persons who own or owned a universal life insurance
     policy issued by State Farm on Form 94030 in the State of
     Missouri."

Mr. Vogt contends that the case presents overarching common
questions, the answers to which will resolve tens of thousands of
claims without the need for individualized testimony: whether
State Farm deducted cost of insurance and expense charges from
each policy owner's Account Value in amounts greater than those
authorized by the Policy.  He asserts that the Policy is a
"universal life" insurance policy. Universal life insurance is a
type of "permanent" life insurance that, unlike standard "term"
insurance, is intended to provide lifetime.

The appellate case is captioned as State Farm Life Insurance Co.
v. Michael Vogt, Case No. 18-8004, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.[BN]

TARGET CORP: Court Denies Certification in "Faraji"
---------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Central District of
California denied Plaintiffs' Motion for Class Certification in
the case captioned NEDA FARAJI, Plaintiff, v. TARGET CORPORATION;
DOES 1 through 50, inclusive, Defendants, Case No. 5:17-CV-00155-
ODW-SP (C.D. Cal.).

The Plaintiff filed her First Amended Complaint, alleging causes
of action for: (1) Failure to pay for all hours worked at the
correct rates of pay, Cal. Lab. Code Sections 510, 1194, and
1198; (2) Failure to provide meal and rest periods, Cal. Lab.
Code Sections 226.7, 512, and 1198; (3) Failure to provide
accurate written wage statements, Cal. Lab. Code Section 226(a);
(4) Failure to timely pay all final wages, Cal. Lab. Code
Sections 201-203; (5) Unfair Competition, Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code
Sections 17200 et seq.; and (6) Civil Penalties, Cal. Lab. Code
Sections 2698 et seq.

The Plaintiff seeks to certify the following class:

     All persons Target employed in California as salaried ETL-
APs and/or other positions with similar job titles, descriptions,
duties, and/or compensation arrangements, at any time during the
time period beginning November 28, 2012 and ending when final
judgment is entered.

Numerosity

The Plaintiff contends the proposed class numbers more than 800
members and satisfies any standard for numerosity.  The
Defendants do not contest this argument or even address this
factor. The Plaintiff meets the numerosity requirement.

Commonality & Predominance

Even if Plaintiff meets the commonality requirement with her
assertion of common questions, the Plaintiff fails to meet the
predominance requirement. Predominance requires that questions of
law or fact common to class members predominate over any
questions affecting only individual members. Meeting the
commonality requirement is insufficient to fulfill the
predominance requirement.

The Plaintiff has not shown that any Target policy requires each
ETL-AP to spend the majority of their time on non-exempt duties.
Instead, submitted are declarations from Plaintiff and a number
of putative class members explaining that they spent the majority
of their time on non-managerial tasks. In response, Target
submitted declarations from other ETL-APs testifying that they
spend the majority of their time on exempt tasks. The Plaintiff
has not met her burden to establish that the question of whether
Target misclassified the ETL-APs as exempt is subject to common
proof. Therefore, the Plaintiff fails to demonstrate that common
questions predominate over individual questions to support the
predominance requirement and fails to meet the requirements for
class certification.

Because the Plaintiff fails to meet the predominance requirement,
it will not address the remaining requirements for class
certification

TELECHECK SERVICES: Sixth Circuit Appeal Filed in "Huff" Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff James Huff filed an appeal from a court ruling in the
lawsuit titled James Huff, et al. v. Telecheck Services, Inc., et
al., Case No. 3:14-cv-01832, in the U.S. District Court for the
Middle District of Tennessee at Nashville.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the Hon.
Judge Samuel H. Mays, Jr. entered on order on March 30, 2018:

   1. granting the Defendants' motion for summary judgment; and

   2. denying as moot the Plaintiff's motion for class
      certification.

The Court said, "Plaintiff does not face a substantial risk of
harm, nor has he incurred any mitigation costs. Plaintiff admits
that he has not "suffer[ed] any psychological harm" or "emotional
distress" as a result of the missing information in his report.
(ECF No. 78-2 at 1329.) Plaintiff also did not "lose money
because of the contents of this report." (Id.) Indeed, the
missing information had "[no] effect on [Plaintiff] whatsoever."
(Id.) Plaintiffs' personal information in Galaria had "already
been stolen and [was] now in the hands of ill-intentioned
criminals." Galaria, 663 F. App'x at 388. The missing information
in Plaintiff's TFR has not been stolen and has "never affected,
altered, or influenced a single consumer report on Plaintiff."
(ECF No. 81 at 1569.) Because the two missing transactions in
Plaintiff's TFR were accurate, their communication to third
parties would have conferred no harm on Plaintiff. Having failed
to identify a concrete harm or risk of harm that Congress sought
to prevent by requiring disclosure, Plaintiff "is left with a
statutory violation divorced from any real world effect." Dreher,
856 F.3d at 347. Defendants' failure to include two transactions
in Plaintiff's TFR had no practical effect on Plaintiff. A
statutory violation, by itself, is insufficient to confer
standing. Because Plaintiff has failed to demonstrate that he has
suffered a concrete injury sufficient to confer Article III
standing, "the court cannot proceed at all." "[T]he only function
remaining to the court is that of announcing the fact and
dismissing the cause."

The appellate case is captioned as James Huff, et al. v.
Telecheck Services, Inc., et al., Case No. 18-5438, in the United
States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.[BN]

UNITED STATES: Seeks 2nd Cir. Review of Decision in "Vidal" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Defendants Kirstjen M. Nielsen, Jefferson B. Sessions III and

lawsuit titled Vidal, et al. v. Nielsen, et al., Case No. 16-cv-
4756, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New

UNITED STATES: Appeals Decision in "Chhoeun" Suit to 9th Circuit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Defendants Thomas Homan, David W. Jennings, David Marin, Kirstjen
Nielsen and Jefferson B. Sessions, III, filed an appeal from a
court ruling in the lawsuit styled Nak Chhoeun, et al. v. David
Marin, et al., Case No. 8:17-cv-01898-CJC-GJS, in the U.S.
District Court for the Central District of California, Santa Ana.

The appellate case is captioned as Nak Chhoeun, et al. v. David
Marin, et al., Case No. 18-55673, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

As reported in the Class Action Reporter on May 4, 2018, David
Marin, et al., filed an appeal from a court ruling.  That
appellate case is styled as Nak Kim Chhoeun, et al. v. David
Marin, et al., Case No. 18-55389.

The lawsuit seeks to prevent and challenge arbitrary and
indefinite detentions that violate statutory and regulatory law
as well as the U.S. Constitution.

Plaintiffs Nak Kim Chhoeun and Mony Neth allege that beginning in
October 2017, they have been arbitrarily and unlawfully detained
by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement ("ICE").  The
Petitioners' and class members' families fled Cambodia in the
1970s to escape the Khmer Rouge's campaign of mass murder and
torture.  They arrived in the United States as small children
after their families secured refugee status.  The Plaintiffs and
class members have lived in the United States ever since.

The Plaintiffs assert that almost all of them are lawful
permanent residents and many have never set foot in Cambodia.  In
every possible sense, the United States is their only home.  The
Plaintiffs and class members were ordered removed based on
criminal convictions -- in many cases, decades-old convictions
for offenses they committed as teenagers.

The Plaintiffs say they were released from ICE custody because
Cambodia would not accept their repatriation.  They returned to
their communities under orders of supervision, reporting
regularly to ICE and complying with the conditions of their
release.  Many have U.S. citizen spouses, children, siblings, and
relatives who rely on them for support.

The Petitioners-Appellees are NAK KIM CHHOEUN, individually and
on behalf of a class of similarly-situated individuals, MONY
NETH, individually and on behalf of a class of similarly-situated
individuals, SALOEUN CHEA, TOL PECH, THY CHANN, PECH KHA, DALA
LOAV, BUNCHOEURN HY, KHEANG LOR, SOKA DOS, NORIT CHIN, ANG
THOEUN, SOKHAN KHIM, TITH TANG, KHUN SUM, LOK LIM, NHOUETH NHIM,
THELH KETH, SAMANANG YIN and THY VANN.

The Respondents-Appellants are DAVID MARIN, Field Office
Director, Los Angeles Field Office, United States Immigration and
Customs Enforcement; DAVID W. JENNINGS, Field Office Director,
San Francisco Field Office, United States Immigration and Customs
Enforcement; THOMAS D. HOMAN, Acting Director, United States
Immigration and Customs Enforcement; KIRSTJEN NIELSEN, Secretary,
United States Department of Homeland Security; and JEFFERSON B.
SESSIONS III, Attorney General.

UNIVERSAL TAX: Seventh Circuit Appeal Filed in D&B II Class Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff D&B II Enterprises LLC filed an appeal from a court
ruling in its lawsuit styled D&B II Enterprises LLC v. Universal
Tax Systems, Incorporated, Case No. 1:13-cv-05702, in the U.S.
District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern
Division.

As reported in the Class Action Reporter on May 7, 2018, the Hon.
Rebecca R. Pallmeyer granted the Defendant's motion for summary
judgment in the lawsuit.

The Plaintiff's motion to reconsider the dismissal of the fraud
claims is denied, and Plaintiff's motion for class certification
is stricken as moot.

D&B II Enterprises, LLC bought computer software from Universal
Tax Systems, Inc., for the purpose of preparing and filing
customers' tax returns.  The software suffered from numerous
performance problems, and the Plaintiff sued the Defendant for
fraud.

After Judge James Block Zagel, to whom this case was assigned,
dismissed the fraud counts, the Plaintiff added several contract
and quasi-contract claims and moved to certify a class of
persons, who purchased the relevant software for the 2012 tax
year, according to the Court's memorandum opinion and order.  The
Defendant, then, moved for summary judgment.

The appellate case is captioned as D&B II Enterprises LLC v.
Universal Tax Systems, Incorporated, Case No. 18-1966, in the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

The briefing schedule in the Appellate Case states that the
Appellant's brief was due on or before June 11, 2018, for D&B II

UNUM GROUP: Pittman Sues over Share Price Drop
----------------------------------------------
CYNTHIA PITTMAN, Individually and On Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. UNUM GROUP, RICHARD P.
MCKENNEY, JOHN F. MCGARRY, and DANIEL J. WAXENBERG, the
Defendants, Case No. 1:18-cv-00128 (E.D. Tenn., June 13, 2018),
seeks to pursue remedies under the Securities Exchange Act of
1934.

According to the complaint, Unum claims to provide financial
protection benefits in the United States and the United Kingdom.
The Company's products purportedly include disability, life,
accident, critical illness, dental and vision, and other related
services.

On May 1, 2018, after the market closed, Unum issued a press
release entitled "Unum Group Reports First Quarter 2018 Results."
Therein, the Company, reported that its first quarter 2018 loss
ratio for its long-term care business was a disappointing 96.6%,
compared to only 88.6% for the first quarter of 2017. The first
quarter 2018 loss ratio also far exceeded the Company's earlier-
stated expectation of 85-90%.

On May 2, 2018, the Company held a conference call to discuss its
first quarter 2018 financial results. On the call, Defendant John
F. McGarry, the Company's Chief Financial Officer elaborated on
the Company's disclosures in the May 1 press release, stating
"[b]enefits experience this quarter was driven by new claim
incidence that ran much higher than expected" and "the higher
loss ratio this quarter was negatively impacted by a lower level
of policy terminations."

On this news, the Company's stock price fell $8.12 per share, or
nearly 17%, to close at $39.78 per share on May 2, 2018, on
unusually heavy trading volume. Throughout the Class Period,
Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as
well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the
Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically,
Defendants failed to disclose: (1) that the Company was
experiencing a higher claims incidence for its long-term care
business; (2) that the Company was experiencing less favorable
policy terminations in connection with its long-term care
business; (3) that, as such, the Company's long-term care
business loss ratio would reach the upper 90% range; and (4)
that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' statements about
Unum's business, operations, and prospects, including statements
related to the Company's long-term care reserves and capital
management plans, were materially false and/or misleading and/or
lacked a reasonable basis. As a result of Defendants' wrongful
acts and omissions, and the precipitous decline in the market
value of the Company's securities, Plaintiff and other Class
members have suffered significant losses and damages.

----------------------------------------------------------------
ANNA ASHKINAZI, individually and on behalf of a class of
similarly situated individuals, the Plaintiff, v. VITAJUWEL USA,
INC., a California corporation, the Defendant, Case No. 2018-CH-
0777 (Ill. Cir. Ct., June 21, 2018), seeks damages, restitution,
and injunctive relief against Defendant for false and deceptive
representations regarding the effects of the "Gem Water" product
on regular water.

The Plaintiff alleges that Defendant falsely advertises and
claims that stones encased in the hermetically sealed glass
capsule increase somehow the pH and the amount of dissolved
oxygen in any water that is poured into a "Gem Water" bottle. All
this without drinking water ever coming on contact with
hermetically sealed stones.

According to the complaint, in fact, "Gem Water" bottles do not
and could not increase the pH or the amount of dissolved oxygen
in water poured into "Gem Water" bottles.[BN]

VITA-MIX CORP: Bennett Appeals Ruling in "Linneman" to 6th Cir.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Interested Party Kamala Bennett filed an appeal from a court
ruling in the lawsuit entitled Vicki Linneman, et al. v. Vita-Mix
Corporation, et al., Case No. 1:15-cv-00748, in the U.S. District
Court for the Southern District of Ohio at Cincinnati.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, a settlement
has been reached in the class action lawsuit, which alleges that
the top seal of blade assemblies in certain Vitamix containers
may fleck, causing black flecks to enter food or drink during
blending.  These flecks are of a non-stick material
(polytetrafluoroethylene or "PTFE") that is common in cookware
and many other products in the food industry.

The Plaintiffs' Complaint does not allege any medical harm
resulted from any consumption of PTFE.  Vitamix produced
information from an independent third-party lab reporting that
the flecks are harmless when consumed and do not present a human
health or safety risk.  However, the Plaintiffs allege that, as a
result of the black flecks Vitamix blenders are worth less than
what consumers and businesses paid to purchase them.

The appellate case is captioned as Vicki Linneman, et al. v.
Vita-Mix Corporation, et al., Case No. 18-3486, in the United
States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.[BN]

WALGREENS OF MASSACHSUETTS: Fails to Pay OT, Robbins Claims
-----------------------------------------------------------
JUSTINE ROBBINS; on behalf of herself and all others similarly
Situated, the Plaintiffs, v. WALGREENS OF MASSACHSUETTS, LLC;
WALGREEN CO.; and WALGREEN EASTERN CO. INC., the Defendants, Case
No. 1:18-cv-11234 (D. Mass., June 13, 2018), seeks to recover all
unpaid overtime wages under Fair labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, during any week in which Plaintiff or
other class members worked in excess of 40 hours, it was
Walgreens' uniform practice and policy to pay overtime wages to
them at an hourly rate equal to one and one-half times the
regular hourly rate that the company paid them for non-overtime
hours, regardless of whether they had earned or were paid any
additional compensation, such as a shift differential. Walgreens
did not include additional compensation, such as shift
differentials, in the regular hourly rate that it used to
calculate the overtime wages that it paid Plaintiff and other
class members.

This practice and policy resulted in Plaintiff and the other
class members not receiving all of the overtime wages that they
earned.

Walgreens is drugstore chain with health and beauty items, plus
first-aid supplies and household products.[BN]

WALKERHEALTHCAREIT LLC: Claims in "Bey" FLSA/OMFWSA Suit Narrowed
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, DEBRA BEY, Plaintiff, v. WALKERHEALTHCAREIT, LLC, et
al., Defendants, Case No. 2:16-cv-1167 (S.D. Ohio), Judge George
C. Smith of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of
Ohio, Eastern Division, (i) granted in part and denied in part
the Walker Defendants' Motion to Dismiss; (ii) denied Encore
Health Resources, LLC's Motion to Dismiss; and (iii) denied the
Walker Defendants' Motion to Strike the Plaintiffs' consent forms
seeking to opt in to Bey's proposed collective action under the
Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA").

Bey was employed by the Walker Defendants and Encore as an ATE
Go-Live Support Consultant ("ATE"), stationed at OhioHealth in
the state of Ohio, for some period of time during the applicable
statute of limitations period.  Although Bey's employment
contract references WalkerHealthCareIT as her employer and refers
to Encore as a "client," Bey alleges that all the Defendants, in
a joint business effort, recruited, placed and managed ATEs at
various healthcare entities across the country, including
OhioHealth, for limited periods of time, to assist with the
implementation and administration of integrated health computer
systems.  Projects varied in length but, on average, lasted a few
weeks at a time.  Bey's primary duty as an ATE was to provide
first line troubleshooting relating to the implementation of the
Defendants' software system, and other duties were to reinforce
training for software programs and provide "at-the-elbow" IT
support.

Although Bey alleges she was jointly employed by all the
Defendants, she describes the WalkerHealthCareIT as being
responsible for recruiting and hiring ATEs, arranging their
travel and expense reimbursement, and issuing their paychecks;
and Encore would manage the day-today duties of ATEs, such as
conducting orientation and training sessions, setting ATE work
schedules, approving and maintaining ATEs' time and expense
reports, and evaluating the ATE's performance.  Each ATE was
assigned to a specific Encore Team Manager or Project Manager who
served as the first point of management contact for the ATE.

Bey alleges that ATEs were assigned a schedule of at least 45
hours per week.  However, ATEs were allegedly not paid in
compliance with state and federal labor laws in two ways: (1)
ATEs were paid only for hours worked that were also billed to the
Defendants' clients.  ATEs were not compensated for hours worked
that were not billed to clients; and (2) for all hours for which
ATEs were paid, they were compensated at the standard "straight
time" hourly rate of pay, including all hours over 40 per
workweek, which should have been compensated at the 1.5 overtime
premium rate.

Bey also alleges that the Defendants did not keep accurate
records of the hours ATEs actually worked; rather, ATEs were
required to record only the hours they had been scheduled to
work.  All of these actions are alleged by Bey to violate both
the FLSA, and the Ohio Fair Minimum Wage Standards Act
("OMFWSA").

Anticipating that the Defendants may argue that ATEs qualify for
one or more exemptions from the FLSA and OMFWSA, Bey also alleges
that ATEs do not so qualify inasmuch as they did not have
management as their primary duty; did not have a primary duty
that required use of discretion or independent judgment; did not
perform work requiring advanced knowledge in a field of science
or learning; did not perform work requiring invention,
imagination, originality, or talent in a recognized field of
artistic or creative endeavor; and were not employed as computer
systems analysts, computer programmers, software engineers, or
similarly skilled computer employees.

Bey commenced th4 action on Dec. 13, 2016, asserting individual
claims on her own behalf, and also seeking to act as the
representative Plaintiff for a collective action under the FLSA
and a Rule 23 class action under the OFMWSA.  The Walker
Defendants and Encore filed motions to dismiss, but in opposing
those motions, Bey also sought leave to amend the Complaint.  To
further the Court's preference to allow cases to reach the merits
rather than through early dismissal, the Court granted leave for
Bey to amend her Complaint to cure whatever deficiencies
Plaintiff believed existed.  Bey filed her Amended Complaint on
Sept. 9, 2017, which mooted the previous motions to dismiss.  The
Walker Defendants and Encore now move again to dismiss Bey's
Amended Complaint for failure to state a claim upon which relief
can be granted under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6).

Shortly after Bey filed her Amended Complaint, she also began
periodically filing consent forms executed by other ATEs who
wished to join Bey's proposed FLSA collective action.  Bey has
not at this time filed a motion under 29 U.S.C. Section 216
seeking conditional certification of the proposed collective
action.  The Walker Defendants have moved to strike the consent
forms as premature prior to the Court's conditional certification
of the collective action, and to enjoin Bey from filing any
further consent forms until the Court grants conditional
certification.

Judge Smith granted in part and denied in part the Walker
Defendants' Motion to Dismiss.  To the extent Bey's Amended
Complaint asserts claims for injunctive relief under the FLSA or
liquidated damages under the OMFWSA, those claims are dismissed.
All other claims against the Walker Defendants remain pending.

The Judge finds that it is true, as pointed out by the Walker
Defendants, that Bey did not explicitly allege the second prong
of the enterprise coverage definition: that WalkerHealthCareIT
has an annual gross volume of sales made or business done of at
least $500,000 as required by 29 U.S.C. Section 203(s)(1)(A)(ii).
However, Bey did allege that the Defendants are engaged in
commerce within the meaning of 29 U.S.C. Section 203(s)(1)(A).
And at least one district court in this Circuit has held that
incorporating 29 U.S.C. Section 203(s)(1)(A) into a complaint is
sufficient to allege the annual gross sales criterion.  These
allegations are not elaborate, but they do suffice for a
plausible enterprise coverage claim under the FLSA.

The Judge also finds that Bey's Amended Complaint expressly
references liquidated damages as a remedy for violations of the
OMFWSA, and to the extent Bey asserts a claim for liquidated
damages under the Ohio statute, that claim is dismissed.
However, she also includes a request for liquidated damages under
her general prayer for relief that is not expressly brought under
either the OMFWSA or FLSA.  Because the FLSA does provide for
liquidated damages, Bey may pursue those damages as part of her
FLSA claim.

Further, the Judge denied Encore's Motion to Dismiss.  There
being no dispute that WalkerHealthCareIT was Bey's employer, Bey
may sufficiently allege liability against Encore in either of two
ways.  First, Bey may allege that she had a direct employment
relationship with Encore, as determined by the "economic reality"
test as set forth in Donovan v. Brandel; or, alternatively, she
may allege that Encore and WalkerHealthCareIT are sufficiently
interrelated in their business operations such that Encore was a
"joint employer" along with WalkerHealthCareIT, as determined by
the test set forth in Int'l Longshoremen's Ass'n, AFL-CIO, Local
Union No.1937 v. Norfolk S. Corp.

Finally, Judge Smith denied the Walker Defendants' Motion to
Strike.  He holds that the relevant case law implies that Bey
need not make a showing that the other ATEs are similarly
situated, or are proper parties under Rule 20, before filing the
consent forms.  Accordingly, there is no reason to strike the
existing consent forms or enjoin Bey from filing additional
consent forms.

The Clerk will remove Documents 51, 52, and 64 from the Court's
pending motions list.

WASHINGTON, DC: Pendergrass Appeals Decision in "Little" Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff Galen Pendergrass filed an appeal from a court ruling
in the lawsuit styled Erick Little, et al. v. WMATA, et al., Case
No. 1:14-cv-01289-RMC, in the U.S. District Court for the
District of Columbia.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, nine
plaintiffs, together with the Washington Lawyers' Committee for
Civil Rights, NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Arnold & Porter LLP
filed a class action lawsuit against Washington Metropolitan Area
Transit Authority and three contractors on July 30, 2014.
Together, they're arguing that WMATA has violated federal and
local anti-discrimination laws with its criminal background
screening policy.

"While criminal background information can be a legitimate tool
for employers when screening job applicants, WMATA's policy is
unduly harsh, out of step with other jurisdictions, and limits
opportunities for qualified African American employees," ReNika
Moore, Director of the Economic Justice Group at the NAACP Legal
Defense Fund, said in a press release.

The plaintiffs are asserting that WMATA's policy violates Title
VII of the Civil Rights Act and goes against guidelines from the
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, resulting in firings and
the disqualification of applicants, a disproportionate number of
whom have been African Americans.

The appellate case is captioned as Erick Little, et al. v. WMATA,
et al., Case No. 18-7071, in the United States Court of Appeals
for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Plaintiff-Appellant Galen Pendergrass, 15cv98; and Plaintiff-

WAYNE, MI: Woodall, et al. Seek to Certify Classes
--------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned KATRINA WOODALL, et al., on behalf of
herself and all similarly situated female inmates of the Wayne
County Jail, the Plaintiffs, v. COUNTY OF WAYNE; BENNY N.
NAPOLEAN, In his Official Capacity as WAYNE COUNTY SHERIFF; and
OFFICER GRAHAM, in her Individual Capacity; jointly and

WEBLOYALTY.COM INC: Court Narrows Discovery Scope in "Park"
-----------------------------------------------------------
The United States District Court for the Southern District
California granted in part and denied in part Parties' Joint
Motion for Determination of Discovery Disputes in the case
captioned KEVIN PARK, on behalf of himself and all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. WEBLOYALTY.COM, INC., a
Delaware corporation, Defendant, Case No. 12CV1380-LAB(JMA) (S.D.
Cal.).

In their Joint Motion for Determination of Discovery Dispute, the
parties raised three categories of disputes arising from Park's
responses to Webloyalty's first set of document requests.

Park brought this putative class action alleging Webloyalty
operates an online marketing scam that preys on unsuspecting
consumers through partnerships with established online retailers.
Park contends Webloyalty tricks consumers into enrolling in its
fee-based membership reward programs as they complete purchase
transactions from these established online retailers.

The parties' dispute involves Park's Responses to Request Nos. 9,
11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 18 and concerns three categories of
information.

Document Request No. 9

Request No. 9 seeks documents concerning the terms of Park's
engagement of class counsel, including documents related to any
benefits he expects to receive in his role as class
representative beyond his pro-rata share of the class recovery.

Park objected to this Request on the ground it seeks information
that is not relevant to the action.  Webloyalty argues Park's
objection is not well-based, and that his retainer agreement with
counsel is relevant to whether conflicts exist between him and
the purported classes, and whether he can adequately represent
the purported classes.

Here, the Court finds that there is no evidence of any suspect
relationship or conflict between Park and class counsel.
Webloyalty has not articulated any reason to believe Park's
retainer agreement contains the type of incentive agreement nor
does it offer any other reason to suspect a conflict exists
between Park and the putative class members. Furthermore, Park's
counsel has represented that no such incentive agreement exists
and that Webloyalty's counsel will be permitted to question Park
about his retention agreement and explore whether there is any
incentive agreement between him and his counsel during his
deposition. Accordingly, under these circumstances, there is no
reason to believe Park's retention agreement is relevant and,
therefore, Webloyalty's motion to compel is denied with respect
to Request No. 9.

Document Request No. 15

Request No. 15 seeks statements for the debit card used in
connection with the Plaintiff's enrollment in any Webloyalty
program or any other good or service purchased through data pass.

Park generally argues the information sought is private, but does
not explain how its disclosure would be harmful to him, or why
any such harm would not be mitigated by producing this
information subject to a protective order. In weighing his
privacy interests against Webloyalty's right to obtain documents
that are relevant to the claims and defenses at issue, the
balance tips in favor of disclosing information about his
shopping habits.

Park's wife, however, shares the account with him. She is not a
party to this case, and her shopping habits are not at issue.
Information about transactions she initiated, therefore, is only
relevant to the extent that Park contends he did not detect the
Webloyalty charges because they were too small in the context of
all other charges that appear on his statements. Given the lesser
relevance of information about transactions authorized by Park's
wife, as opposed to Park, and the fact that these transactions
implicate the privacy rights of a third-party, the balance tips
in favor of not disclosing this information.

Based on this, the Court grants in part and denies in part
Webloyalty's motion to compel with respect to Request No. 15.
Park is directed to produce these documents without redaction,
except for information about transactions solely initiated or
authorized by his wife. The Court previously entered a protective
order, pursuant to which Park may designate these documents as
confidential and limit their use and disclosure.

Document Request Nos. 11-14, 18

Requests No. 11-14 and 18 seek documents relating to the
Plaintiff's relationship with GameStop, the retailer he believed
that he was providing his email address to" when he enrolled in
Webloyalty's program.

The Court finds these Requests are vastly overbroad, in that they
seek documents pertaining to any and all of Park's interactions
and/or purchases with GameStop without any restriction as to time
or similar types of transactions as the one that was the genesis
of this case. Park has not put his relationship with GameStop at
issue so as to warrant a wholesale exploration into each and
every interaction he has had with GameStop over the course of his
life. The information sought is irrelevant and is certainly not
proportional to the needs of the case. Webloyalty's motion to
compel further Responses to these Requests is, therefore, denied.

WEINERT ENTERPRISES: Underpays Employees, Anderson Claims
---------------------------------------------------------
Richard J. Anderson On behalf of Himself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiffs, v. Weinert Enterprises Inc., the
Defendant, Case No. 1:18-cv-00901-WCG (E.D. Wisc., June 14,
2018), seeks redress for Weinert's failure to correctly
compensate the Plaintiffs for their hours worked on both
prevailing wage and non-prevailing wage projects.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiffs would not receive
weekly overtime pay unless and until they worked 40 hours plus
their paid travel hours during a workweek. Additionally,
Plaintiffs sometimes were paid, for their overtime hours worked,
at a rate lower than 1.5 times the cash wage that they received
for performing the same work, so that they did not receive weekly
overtime pay equal to 1.5 times the straight time rate for the
same work for each and every one of their hours worked over 40
per week.[BN]

WELLS FARGO: Royal Park Wants to Appeal Denial of Class Cert.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff Royal Park Investments SA/NV files with the United
States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit a petition for
permission to appeal, pursuant to Rule 23(f) of the Federal Rules
of Civil Procedure, relating to rulings entered in its lawsuit
entitled ROYAL PARK INVESTMENTS SA/NV, Individually and on Behalf
of All Others Similarly Situated v. WELLS FARGO BANK, N.A., as
Trustee, Case No. 1:14-cv-09764-KPF-SN, in the U.S. District
Court for the Southern District of New York.

The Petition seeks interlocutory review of the latest in a series
of decisions by judges in the Southern District of New York
denying certification in putative class actions against
residential mortgage-backed securities ("RMBS") trustees based on
erroneous application of this Court's decisions in Brecher v.
Republic of Arg., 806 F.3d 22 (2d Cir. 2015), and In re Petrobras
Sec. Litig., 862 F.3d 250 (2d Cir. 2017), petition for cert.
filed, Nov. 1, 2017, but stayed pending settlement, Royal Park
contends.  Royal Park asserts that these decisions threaten to
extinguish investors' ability to pursue claims related to
hundreds of billions of dollars in losses against faithless
fiduciaries, including Wells, who put their own interests in
maintaining lucrative relationships with their clients above the
interests of the certificateholders they were obligated to
protect.

Royal Park presents these questions to the Second Circuit:

   1. Is Rule 23(f) review warranted when a district court fails
      to engage in a rigorous comparative inquiry to determine
      whether common questions predominate over individual
      questions?

   2. Is Rule 23(f) review warranted when a district court finds
      that speculative individual questions predominate over the
      common question of a defendant's contractual and common-law
      violations? and

   3. Is there a compelling need for immediate resolution when
      recent district court opinions manifestly misinterpret
      evolving Second Circuit precedent in a manner that impacts
      claims for hundreds of billions of dollars in losses?

As reported in the Class Action Reporter on May 17, 2018, the
Hon. Katherine Polk Failla of Manhattan refused to certify a
class led by Royal Park, which sued Wells Fargo for failing in
its duties as the trustee of two mortgage-backed securities
trusts.  Judge Failla adopted the recommendation of the
magistrate in the Wells Fargo case, U.S. Magistrate Judge Sarah
Netburn, who found individual issues -- including constitutional
standing to sue, timeliness of claims and potential damages --
predominated over common issues for investors in the trusts
overseen by Wells Fargo.

As Judge Failla noted, she is actually the fourth Manhattan
federal judge to deny class certification in an MBS trustee suit
by Royal Park -- and the third since the beginning of 2018.  U.S.
District Judge Alison Nathan issued her denial of Royal Park's
renewed class certification motion in an MBS trustee case against
Deutsche Bank. U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield denied class
certification in January in Royal Park's suit against HSBC.  Last
August, U.S. District Judge Gregory Woods refused to certify an
investor class against MBS trustee BNY Mellon, though Royal Park
has filed a renewed motion for class certification in that
case.[BN]

WISMETTAC ASIAN: Fails to Pay Wages, Orellana Says
--------------------------------------------------
CARLOS A. ORELLANA, RONALD MENA C., MARVIN CASTTLLO, AND ROLANDO
LOPEZ, on behalf of themselves and all persons similarly
situated, the Plaintiffs, v. WISMETTAC ASIAN FOODS, INC., a
California Corporation, and DOES 1 through 10, inclusive, the
Defendants, Case No. BC709637 (Cal. Super. Ct., June 14, 2018),
seeks to recover unpaid wages under the California Labor Code.

Wismettac Asian Foods, Inc. is a multi-national corporation that
imports, produces, and distributes food and other products.
Wismettac employs the Plaintiffs.

According to the complaint, the Defendant puts its bottom line
above the health and safety of its drivers. Drivers are supposed
to receive a 30-minute off-duty meal period after five hours of
work with a second 30-minute off-duty meal period if the shift is
ten or more hours long. Instead, Defendant has its drivers clock
out for 30 minutes and guard the truck. During meal periods
drivers can go into restaurants to order food to go, but they
have to keep their trucks in sight at all times. Drivers must eat
in the cabs of their trucks, but Defendant does not permit
turning on the truck to use air conditioning. As a result,
Plaintiffs must often choose between suffering through a
stiflingly hot 30-minute meal period or cutting it short to gain
the relief of air conditioning. The Defendant also requires its
drivers to work off-the-clock if they are in jeopardy of driving
or being on duty for longer than legally allowed in accordance
with California and Federal drive-time regulations. Defendant
failed to pay Plaintiff at all for these off-the-clock hours of
work in violation of California's minimum, regular, and overtime
wage laws.[BN]
