ACCLAIM ENTERTAINMENT: Included In $5B Columbine High Shooting Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. and other companies in the entertainment
industry were sued in an action entitled Sanders et al. v. Meow Media
et al., filed in April 2001 in the U.S. District Court for the District
of Colorado, Civil Action No. 01-0728.

The complaint purports to be a class action brought on behalf of all
persons killed or injured by the shootings, which occurred at Columbine
High School on April 20, 1999.

"We are a named defendant in the action along with more than ten other
publishers of computer and video games," the Company said in a recent
regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The complaint alleges that the Video Game Defendants negligently caused
injury to the plaintiffs as a result of their distribution of
unidentified "violent" video games, which induced two minors to kill a
teacher related to the plaintiff and to kill or harm their high school
classmates, thereby causing damages to plaintiffs.

The complaint seeks:

     (i) compensatory damages in an amount not less than $15,000 for
         each plaintiff in the class, but up to $20,000,000 for some of
         the members of the class;

    (ii) punitive damages in the amount of $5,000,000,000;

   (iii) statutory damages against certain other defendants in the
         action; and

    (iv) equitable relief to address the marketing and distribution of
         "violent" video games to children.

ASHWORTH INC.: Motion To Dismiss Second Amended Complaint Pending
-----------------------------------------------------------------
On January 22, 1999, Milberg Weiss Bershad Hynes & Lerach LLP filed a
class action in the United States District Court for the Southern
District of California on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of
ASHWORTH, INC. during the period between September 4, 1997 and July 15,
1998 alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by the
Company and certain of its officers and directors.

The complaint alleged that, during the class period, Company executives
made positive statements about the Company's business including
statements concerning product demand, offshore production and
inventories.

The complaint further alleged that the defendants knew these statements
to be false and concealed adverse conditions and trends in the
Company's business during the class period.

The complaint sought to recover unspecified damages on behalf of all
purchasers of the Company's common stock during the period September
4, 1997 to July 15, 1998.  The Company was served a copy of the
complaint on January 26, 1999.

Subsequently, two other suits were served upon the Company making
similar allegations. The three actions have been consolidated by order
of the United States District Court and lead counsel for the plaintiffs
has been appointed.

Per order of the Court, Plaintiffs filed their Amended and Consolidated
Complaint on December 17, 1999. On February 18, 2000, the Company filed
a motion to dismiss.

On May 22, 2000, the Court heard the motion to dismiss and took it
under submission. On July 18, 2000, the U.S. District Court granted the
motion to dismiss the Amended and Consolidated Complaint as to all
defendants.  The Court granted plaintiffs sixty days to amend the
complaint if they chose to do so.

On September 18, 2000, plaintiffs served their Second Consolidated
Amended Complaint making allegations and seeking remedies similar to
those in the prior complaint.

On November 6, 2000, the Company filed its motion to dismiss the Second
Amended Complaint. The motion to dismiss was heard before the U.S.
District Court in February 2001.

The matter is currently under submission. No discovery has taken place
in this matter to date.


BACOU USA: Stockholders File Four Putative Lawsuits In Delaware
---------------------------------------------------------------
On May 30, 2001, four putative class action complaints were filed in
the Delaware Court of Chancery on behalf of the public stockholders of
Bacou USA, Inc. against the Company, its directors and Bacou S.A.  One
of the complaints also includes Christian Dalloz as a defendant.

Each of the complaints alleges, among other things, that the defendants
breached their fiduciary duties in setting an unreasonably low price
to be paid to its public stockholders in the merger with Daniel U.S.
Sub, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Christian Dalloz S.A.

The complaints seek a preliminary and permanent injunction enjoining
the proposed transaction, rescission in the event that the transaction
is completed, damages and attorneys' fees.

Bacou USA and Christian Dalloz believe that these claims are without
merit and intend to defend them vigorously.


CROSSROADS SYSTEMS: Motion To Dismiss Texas Securities Suit Undecided
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Crossroads Systems, Inc. and several of its officers and directors were
named as defendants in several class action lawsuits filed in the
United States District Court for the Western District of Texas.

The plaintiffs in the actions purport to represent purchasers of the
Company's common stock during various periods ranging from January 25,
2000 through August 24, 2000.

The Court consolidated the actions and appointed a lead plaintiff under
the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The amended
consolidated complaint was filed in February 2001 and the Company filed
a motion to dismiss.

The plaintiffs are seeking unspecified amounts of compensatory damages,
interests and costs, including legal fees.

"The class action lawsuit is still at an early stage. Consequently, it
is not possible at this time to predict whether we will incur any
liability or to estimate the damages, or the range of damages, if any,
that we might incur in connection with this lawsuit," the Company said
in a recent regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange
Commission.


DELTATHREE INC.: Stull Stull Files Securities Suit In S.D. New York
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Stull, Stull & Brody filed late last week a class action lawsuit in the
United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, on
behalf of purchasers of deltathree, Inc. (NASDAQ:DDDC) common stock
between November 22, 1999 and June 12, 2001, inclusive.

The complaint alleges that defendants deltathree, Amos Sela, Mark J.
Hirschhorn, Elie C. Wurtman, Jacob A. Davidson, Itzhak Fisher, Nir
Tarlovsky, Donald R. Shassian, Jacob Z. Schuster and Avery S. Fischer
violated the federal securities laws by issuing and selling
Deltathree.com, Inc. common stock pursuant to the November 22, 1999 IPO
without disclosing to investors that some of the underwriters in the
offering, including the lead underwriters, had solicited and received
excessive and undisclosed commissions from certain investors.

The complaint further alleges that defendants violated the Securities
Act of 1933 because the Prospectus distributed to investors and the
Registration Statement filed with the SEC in order to gain regulatory
approval for the Deltathree.com, Inc. offering contained material
misstatements regarding the commissions that the underwriters would
derive from the IPO transaction and failed to disclose the additional
commissions.

EBT INTERNATIONAL: Plaintiffs Voluntarily Drop Shareholder Suit In MA
---------------------------------------------------------------------
eBT International, Inc. reported to the Securities and Exchange
Commission that the plaintiffs in the consolidated shareholders suit
filed in Massachusetts have voluntarily dropped their case.

Accordingly, the plaintiffs received no consideration from the Company
for their decision.  Their motion to dismiss filed on April 29 is now
pending for court approval.

During February 2000, certain shareholders of the Company filed two
substantially similar putative class action complaints in the United
States District Court for the District of Massachusetts that were
captioned as follows:

     (i) Liz Lindawati, et al. v. Inso Corp., et al., Civil Action No.
         00-CV-10305GAO;

    (ii) Group One Limited, et al. v. Inso Corp., et al., Civil Action
         No. 00-CV-10318GAO.

They asserted claims for violations of Section 10(b) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 of the Securities and Exchange
Commission, as well as a claim for violation of Section 20(a) of the
Exchange Act.


EMEX CORPORATION: Dyer & Shuman Files Securities Suit In S.D. NY
----------------------------------------------------------------
Dyer & Shuman, LLP filed a class action on behalf of purchasers of Emex
Corporation (Nasdaq: EMEX) common stock during the period between April
9, 2001, and May 23, 2001, inclusive.

The complaint charges Emex and certain of its officers and directors
with violating the federal securities laws by issuing materially false
and misleading statements concerning the company's attempt to secure
much needed financing.

In particular, on April 9, 2001, the company issued a press release
announcing that it had entered an agreement to obtain a $100 million
loan needed to finance the building of the first of a series of its
commercial plants.

Emex further stated that this financing was "arranged through the
efforts of Credit Suisse First Boston," a leading global investment
bank. In reaction to this news, the company's stock rose 13% on April
10, 2001, and continued to climb to its Class Period high of $36 per
share on May 22, 2001.

Thereafter, on May 23, 2001, it was reported on Dow Jones Newswire that
Credit Suisse denied any role in the $100 million financing. As a
result of this news, Nasdaq halted trading of Emex stock pending
additional information.

On May 30, 2001, Emex finally acknowledged that Credit Suisse was not
behind the $100 million financing, but rather another company,
Fieldstone, Inc., had agreed to provide the financing.

Following this announcement, Nasdaq resumed trading in Emex common
stock, which plummeted over 35% on May 30, 2001, to close at $16.98 and
continued to fall an additional $5.31 per share to close at $11.67 on
June 1, 2001.

FREEMARKETS INC.: Schatz & Nobel Files Securities Suit In W.D. PA
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Schatz & Nobel filed a lawsuit seeking class action status in the
United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania
on behalf of all persons who purchased common stock and/or publicly
traded call options in FreeMarkets, Inc. (Nasdaq: FMKT) between July
24, 2000 and April 23, 2001, inclusive.

The Complaint alleges that FreeMarkets, its Chief Executive Officer,
and its Chief Financial Officer misled the investing public by
reporting "record" results during the Class Period, following the
announcement of a contract with Visteon Corporation.

On April 23, 2001, FreeMarkets revealed that the SEC had determined
that revenues recognized in connection with the Visteon contract during
fiscal year 2000 ($8 million) and the first quarter of fiscal year 2001
($2.8 million) "should not be classified as revenue," because Visteon
had been granted a warrant for 1.75 million shares of FreeMarkets when
their contract was entered into.

According to the SEC, the revenue obtained from Visteon should have
been "classified as money paid for the warrant instead of revenue."

Following this disclosure, the share price of FreeMarkets stock fell to
$9.30 per share on April 24, 2001, well below its Class Period high of
$87.563 per share on September 5, 2000.

HASTINGS ENTERTAINMENT: Faces Suit For IPO, Others For Restatement
------------------------------------------------------------------
In 2000, Hastings Entertainment, Inc. restated its financial statements
for the first three quarters of fiscal 1999 and the prior four fiscal
years.

Following the Company's initial announcement in March 2000 of the
requirement for such restatements, six purported class action lawsuits
were filed in the United States District Court for the Northern
District of Texas against the Company and certain of the current and
former directors and officers of the Company asserting various
claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934.

Although four of the lawsuits were originally filed in the Dallas
Division of the Northern District of Texas, all of the five pending
actions have been transferred to the Amarillo Division of the Northern
District and have been consolidated.

One of the Section 10(b) and 20(a) lawsuits filed in the Dallas
Division was voluntarily dismissed.

On May 15, 2000, a lawsuit was filed in the United States District
Court for the Northern District of Texas against the Company, its
current and former directors and officers at the time of the Company's
June 1998 initial public offering and three underwriters, Salomon
Smith Barney, A.G. Edwards & Sons, Inc. and Furman Selz, LLC asserting
various claims under Sections 11, 12(2) and 15 of the Securities Act of
1933.

None of the six pending complaints specify the amount of damages
sought.


HEALTHCARE LITIGATION: Senior Citizens Suit In New Mexico Certified
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Senior citizens who claimed they were subjected to "bait and switch"
tactics in buying a health care plan from St. Joseph Medicare Plan Plus
have been certified as a class by State District Judge Susan Conway,
according to a recent Associated Press report.  

The Medicare office in Albuquerque, New Mexico filed a lawsuit February
27 on behalf of four named plaintiffs, who allege that St. Joseph
offered a certain level of benefits in a letter, dated December 26,
2000, knowing, but not mentioning, that it planned to make significant
reductions a few months later.

The class in the Medicare case is estimated to include about 4,000
seniors, said Rachel Higgins, an attorney for the Senior Citizens Law
Office.  

The members of the class were all recipients of the December 26th
letter from St. Joseph, who decided to renew their membership in
the plan as a result of the allegedly misleading letter.

The class action claims violations of the state unfair practices laws
and frauds. Lawyers for St. Joseph contend that federal health
officials severely restricted what they were able to tell potential
customers.  

Therefore, defendant claims the seniors' complaint is really with the
Health Care Financing Administration, the defendant's lawyers said.


HOLOCAUST LITIGATION: Reparations Awarded To Nazi-era Slaves In NY
------------------------------------------------------------------
The former Nazi-era slave laborers who brought a class action suit in
New York City, will receive reparations ranging from $7,500 for an
individual forced into camps and ghettos to $2,500 for an individual
forced to work for German companies or the German government, according
to a recent New York Times report.

Eleven lawyers were awarded more than $1 million each, with the biggest
award of $6.3 million going to Melvyn I. Weiss of the Manhattan law
firm Milberg, Weiss, Bershad, Hynes & Lerach.  

Michael D. Hausfeld of Washington received $5 million and Burt
Neuborne, professor at New York University School of Law, was awarded
$4.4 million.  

The lawyers will be paid from a separate fund negotiated with the
German Foundation, the organization in charge of distributing the
reparation money.

>From this description of awards, one can understand why E. Stuart
Eizenstat, the American government's chief negotiator, observed that,
"There are highly held views, somehow, the lawyers in these cases made
out like bandits at the expense of the Holocaust victims, which is
grossly untrue. It was the class action suits that got the attention of
German industry."  

Eizenstat explained that the lawyers were an integral part of the
negotiations that led to creation of the fund.  It was decided that it
would be "unseemly" for the lawyers to receive the traditional
contingency fee of one-third the settlement amount.

Instead, the lawyers agreed to split at the rate of 1 to 1.5% of the
total awarded in U.S. District Court, as a result of arbitration by
Nicholas deB. Katzenbach, former attorney general under President
Lyndon Johnson and Kenneth R. Feinberg, a lawyer specializing in class
action litigation.

A total of 51 lawyers were involved in a variety of suits filed on
behalf of people forced to work by the Nazi government, mostly persons
now in their 70's and 80's.  

Many died without receiving any of the money in the year since the
German government and companies established the $4.5 billion fund to
pay the reparations.  

In return, the companies wanted assurance that they would be free from
future claims by Holocaust victims.


IPRINT TECHNOLOGIES: Edward Carreiro Files Four Securities Suits
----------------------------------------------------------------
Law Offices of Edward J. Carreiro, of Hatboro, PA, filed last week a
class action lawsuit against iPrint Technologies, Inc., 724 Solutions,
Inc., Onvia.com, Inc. and Netcentives, Inc. and its officers resulting

those individuals who purchased the above named stocks in the following
class periods:

    Corporation                                   Class Period

    iPrint Technologies, Inc.     NASDAQ:IPRT     3/8/00 - 2/6/00

MARIMBA INC.: Cauley Geller Files Securities Suit In E.D. Louisiana
-------------------------------------------------------------------
The Law Firm of Cauley Geller Bowman & Coates, LLP filed last week a
class action in the United States District Court for the Eastern
District of Louisiana on behalf of purchasers of Orthodontic Centers of
America, Inc. (NYSE: OCA) common stock during the period between April
27, 2000 through March 15, 2001, inclusive.

The complaint charges OCA and certain of its officers and directors
with issuing false and misleading statements concerning its business
and financial condition.

Specifically, the complaint alleges that defendants "front-loaded"
OCA's revenue by improperly recognizing service fee revenue in the
first month of patient services on contracts that typically spanned at
least 26 months.

Furthermore, defendants improperly inflated OCA's fee revenue by
recording amounts equal to a portion of operating losses incurred by
start-up affiliated companies. The combined effect of these practices
caused the Company to recognize as much as 33% of total contract
revenue in the first month of patient services while actually recording
a negative revenue figure in the last month of service.

MITCHAM INDUSTRIES: Settles Texas Securities Suit For $2.7 Million
------------------------------------------------------------------
Mitcham Industries, Inc. has decided to settle the consolidated
securities suit pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern
Disrict of Texas, Houston Division.

In a recent regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, the Company disclosed the $2.7 million settlement it
offered to the plaintiffs.  The Company and its insurance carrier will
share in paying the amount.

According to the Company, it was forced to settle the suit for fear of
facing protracted and expensive litigation. The approval of this
settlement by the federal court in Texas is still pending.

The case stems from several purported class action lawsuits filed in
April 1998.  These suits were consolidated in November 1998.

The consolidated suit alleges violations of Section 10(b), Rule 10b-5
and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Sections 11 and
12(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933.


NEW YORK CITY: Judge Approves $50M Settlement On Strip-search Claims
--------------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. District Judge John S. Martin approved a settlement of $50 million
between the City and tens of thousands of people who claimed they were
illegally strip-searched after being arrested for minor offenses,
according to a recent Associated Press report.

Such searches are prohibited under New York City law during arrests for
minor offenses unless there is a reasonable suspicion that contraband
has been concealed. The City agreed to the settlement and stopped the
practice.  

Notices of settlement have been sent to 65,000 potential claimants, who
will receive payments ranging from $250 to $22,000, the higher amount
being available to individuals who can prove through psychological
screening that they suffered mental anguish.


ORTHODONTIC CENTERS: Cauley Geller Files Securities Suit In Louisiana
---------------------------------------------------------------------
The Law Firm of Cauley Geller Bowman & Coates, LLP filed last week a
class action in the United States District Court for the Eastern
District of Louisiana on behalf of purchasers of Orthodontic Centers of

27, 2000 through March 15, 2001, inclusive.

PEABODY ENERGY: Accused of Discriminating Against Indian Miners
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a class action
lawsuit against Peabody Energy Corporation in Phoenix, according to a
recent Associated Press report.  

The lawsuit alleges that the St. Louis-based company has failed to hire
qualified Hopi, Otoe and other Indians at the Kayenta and Black Mesa
coalmines, which the company is operating through lease agreements with
the Navajo Nation and the Hopi Tribe in Arizona.

"The case against Peabody Coal should send a strong message to
employers on or near Indian reservations that preferring members of one
tribe to the exclusion of members of other tribes is national origin
discrimination," said Commission attorney C. Emanuel Smith.  

Peabody spokeswoman Beth Sutton said the company is "perplexed that the
U.S. government believes it has jurisdiction over the affairs of
sovereign nations."  

She added that Peabody believes it is abiding by the terms of its lease
agreements with both the Navajo Nation and the Hopi tribe.  More than
90 percent of the 700 people the company employs in the two mines are
Indian, Peabody said.

The lawsuit is seeking damages for three individuals who were not hired
and a court order preventing Peabody from discriminating on the basis
of national origin.


PLUG POWER: Files Motion To Dismiss Securities Suit In E.D. New York
--------------------------------------------------------------------
In September 2000, a shareholder class action complaint was filed in
the federal district court for the Eastern District of New York
alleging that Plug Power, Inc. and various of its officers and
directors violated certain federal securities laws by failing to
disclose certain information concerning the Company's products and
future prospects.

The action was brought on behalf of a class of purchasers of the
Company's stock who purchased the stock between February 14, 2000 and
August 2, 2000.

Subsequently, fourteen additional complaints with similar allegations
and class periods were filed. By order dated October 30, 2000, the
court consolidated the complaints into one action, entitled Plug Power
Inc. Securities Litigation, CV-00-5553 (ERK)(RML).

By order dated January 25, 2001, the Court appointed lead plaintiffs
and lead plaintiffs' counsel. Subsequently, the plaintiffs served a
consolidated amended complaint.

The consolidated amended complaint extends the class period to begin on
October 29, 1999 and alleges claims under the Securities Act of 1933
and the Exchange Act of 1934, and Rule 10b-5 promulgated under the
Exchange Act of 1934.

Plaintiffs allege that the defendants made misleading statements and
omissions regarding the state of development of its technology in a
registration statement issued in connection with its initial
public offering and in subsequent press releases.

The Company served its motion to dismiss the claims in May 2001.

"We believe that the allegations in the consolidated amended complaint
are without merit and intend to vigorously defend against the claims.
We do not believe that the outcome of these actions will have a
material adverse effect upon our financial position, results of
operations or liquidity," the Company assured its investors.


RAZORFISH INC.: Stull Stull Files Securities Suit In S.D. New York
------------------------------------------------------------------
Stull, Stull & Brody filed late last week a class action lawsuit in the
United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, on
behalf of purchasers of Razorfish, Inc. (NASDAQ:RAZF) common stock
between April 27, 1999 and June 11, 2001, inclusive.

The complaint alleges that defendants Razorfish, Inc., Jeffrey A.
Dachis, Craig M. Kanarick, Per I.G. Bystedt, Jonas S.A. Svensson, Susan
Black, Carter F. Bales, Kjell A. Nordstrom and John Wren violated the
federal securities laws by issuing and selling Razorfish common stock
pursuant to the April 27, 1999 IPO without disclosing to investors that
some of the underwriters in the offering, including the lead
underwriters, had solicited and received excessive and undisclosed
commissions from certain investors.

The complaint further alleges that defendants violated the Securities
Act of 1933 because the Prospectus distributed to investors and the
Registration Statement filed with the SEC in order to gain regulatory
approval for the Razorfish offering contained material misstatements
regarding the commissions that the underwriters would derive from the
IPO transaction and failed to disclose the additional commissions.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

SEX DISCRIMINATION: Excluding Women From Contraception Coverage Illegal
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
In a recent class action suit, federal trial judge Robert S. Lasnik, in
Washington State, ruled that a local family-owned drugstore chain had
engaged in unlawful sex discrimination by excluding contraceptive
coverage from its employee health plan, according to a recent editorial
in The New York Times.

The ruling is binding on only the one company as a technical matter,
but this is the first time a court has addressed the issue of gender
equity in drug coverage. The ruling could "set a legally solid
precedent" to encourage more coverage of contraceptives nationwide.  

This issue commanded notice a few years ago when the fact was
publicized that many employees chose to cover Viagra to treat impotence
in men but excluded coverage of women's prescription contraceptives.

The Washington state class action was brought under the pregnancy
discrimination provisions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, as amended, and
challenged the drug chain's health coverage, which paid for all basic
health care needs of male employees but excluded the cost of birth-
control pills or other forms of prescription contraception.  

Judge Lasnik found that Congress intended the Act to bar pregnancy
discrimination.  The Judge stated that men and women have different
health care needs; that "the law is no longer blind to the fact that
only women get pregnant, bear children or use prescription
contraceptives."  

The law, he added, intended to outlaw any discrimination against women
"in the terms and conditions of their employment, including the
benefits an employer provides to its employees."


STEWART ENTERPRISES: Plaintiffs Withdraw Appeal In Fifth Circuit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Stewart Enterprises, Inc. said in a recent report to the Securities and
Exchange Commission that plaintiffs have already dropped their appeal
on the dismissal of their suit against the Company.

According to a recent regulatory document, the plaintiffs withdrew
their appeal with the U.S. Court Of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit on
March 9, 2001. This withdrawal effectively ended the securities
litigation.  

The appeal related to 16 putative securities class action lawsuits
filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
Louisiana in the fall of 1999 against the Company, certain of its
directors and officers and the lead underwriters in the Company's
January 1999 common stock offering.

In December 2000, the District Court dismissed the suits against all
defendants for failure of the plaintiffs to state a claim. On January
4, 2001, the plaintiffs subsequently filed a notice of appeal, which
has now been withdrawn.

The Company made no payments to the plaintiffs in connection with the
withdrawal.

to the Tender Offer dated March 5, 2001 by Luxottica Group S.p.A. and
Shade to Sunglass shareholders, in exchange for $11.50 net cash per

TIVO INC.: Faces Securities Fraud Lawsuit Filed In S.D. New York
----------------------------------------------------------------
On June 12, 2001, a securities class action lawsuit was filed in the
United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on
behalf of all persons who acquired the stock of Tivo, Inc. between
September 30, 1999 and December 6, 2000.

TiVo, certain of the executive officers of TiVo, and certain
underwriters involved in the initial public offering of the Company
were named as defendants in the complaint.

The complaint charges the defendants with violation of Sections 10(b)
and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and Rule 10b-5
promulgated thereunder, for issuing a registration statement and
prospectus in the initial public offering that contained material
misrepresentations and/or omissions.

The complaint seeks damages on behalf of all those who purchased or
otherwise acquired TiVo securities during the period covered by the
complaint.

"We believe we have meritorious defenses and intend to defend this
action vigorously. However, we could be forced to incur material
expenses in the litigation, and in the event there is an adverse
outcome, our business could be harmed," the Company said in a recent
regulatory filing with SEC.


WAREHOUSE ENTERTAINMENT:Ex-worker Files Wage Suit In LA Superior Court
----------------------------------------------------------------------
In January 2001, the Warehouse Entertainment, Inc. was sued in the Los
Angeles Superior Court by a former employee, claiming alleged failure
to pay overtime wages to her and all salaried store employees similarly
situated.  The Complaint does not specify any amount of the claims,
either individually or on behalf of the class.

The Company's motion to strike the class action allegations was denied
by the trial court and a request by the Company for discretionary
preliminary appellate court
review of the trial court's ruling was denied.

The Company believes the allegations are without merit and intends to
vigorously defend itself in this matter. However, no assurance can be
provided as to its outcome.

Management does not believe an adverse judgment against the Company
would result in a material impact to the consolidated financial
statements.


* S Korea Forms Group To Consider Possible Suits Against US Forces
------------------------------------------------------------------
Lawyers for a Democratic Society, a human rights organization in South
Korea has created a legal counseling team composed of 11 attorneys to
provide services to local Koreans filing lawsuits related to the U.S.
armed forces stationed in Korea, known as U.S. Forces Korea (USFK).

"The purpose of our team, tentatively named the Study Group on U.S.
Forces Korea, will provide more systematic, professional legal
assistance to locals," said Lee Suk-tae, a lawyer who works as a member
of the human rights group.  

Creation of the team followed a landmark court ruling in April, in
which a Seoul court ordered the Seoul government to pay 132 won
($99,660) in compensation to 14 residents, located near the U.S.
bombing range in Maehyang-ri, 80 km. south of Seoul, who had filed a
class action with the Seoul District Court in February 1998.

The legal team, said Lee, will cover all USFK-related issues, ranging
from traffic problems to environmental problems.  

"We are now discussing how to deal with the noise problems near U.S.
bases near Paju and Maehyang-ri," Lee added.  And the Study Group on
USFK also plans to join forces with local social and civic groups to
effectively deal with USFK-related issues.  

Last month, 24 local civic groups created a coalition to represent
residents living near U.S. bases in Korea in lawsuits against U. S.
troops.

The coalition plans to first conduct a fact-finding survey of nine U.S.
bases and facilities in seven areas to collect exact data on
environmental problems, which it said would be used as a legal basis
for future lawsuits.
