724 SOLUTIONS: Schiffrin Barroway Files Securities Suit In S.D. NY
------------------------------------------------------------------
Schiffrin & Barroway, LLP filed a class action lawsuit in the United
States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf
of all purchasers of the common stock of 724 Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:
SVNX) from January 27, 2000 through December 6, 2000, inclusive.

AOL TIME: Woman Initiates Suit In Maryland Over 'Explicit' Records
------------------------------------------------------------------
AOL-Time Warner is facing a class action lawsuit in Maryland over its
latest release of Trick Daddy's Thugs Are Us, the Daily Hip-Hop News
reported.

A woman in Maryland initiated the suit after she bought a clean version
of the record for her 11-year old son and still found some "explicit"
lyrics on some of the songs.

Lawyer Jon Pels, who is representing the woman in the suit, claims he
bought additional copies of the clean versions, and all had the same
content.

The lawsuit adds fuel to Congressional fire, where a new bill similar
to Senator Lieberman's is making it's way through Congress, the report
said.

Senator Lieberman recently wrote President Bush, who all but came right
out and supported the senator.

The letter Lieberman sent contends that the entertainment industry has
been "targeting heavily violent content meant for adults directly to
our children" and that legislation needs to be put into place to help.

"Although we've just been served with the lawsuit, it is clear on its
face that the plaintiffs misunderstand the RIAA guidelines on parental
labels," a Warner spokeswoman said of the Maryland suit.

"If record companies and artists can be sued just because one parent or
judge believes that an album was improperly labeled, then that
discourages all record companies from labeling," she added.


CHASE MANHATTAN: Faces Suit In FL For Wrongful Assessment Of Late Fees
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Chase Manhattan Mortgage is facing a consumer class action suit in Palm
Beach County, Florida.

According to a report by ConsumerAffairs.com, the suit alleges that the
mortgage company improperly assesses late charges payments even if
these were, in fact, received on time.

In the suit, Dale A. Porcher contends that he sent his mortgage
payments to Chase Manhattan in a timely manner.

He charges that the mortage company held the payments and posted them
to his account after the due date and then slapped him with late
payment fees and penalties.

The case seeks class action status, the report said.


COMPUSERVE: Sued In Florida Over Late Payments Of Promised Rebates
------------------------------------------------------------------
CompuServe is facing a suit in Florida filed by a couple claiming it
failed to pay rebates on time and, in some cases, never made the
promised payments, according to a recent report by ConsumerAffairs.com.

The suit is seeking class action status against the company, which is
owned by AOL Time Warner.

According to the report, Michael and Melissa Stone of Niceville bought
a Compaq Presario computer in Fort Walton Beach and signed up for three
years of Internet service through CompuServe as part of a $400 rebate
offer.

The Stones claim they mailed their rebate form to CompuServe on Aug.
26, 2000, and did not receive their rebate until Feb. 19, 2001, nearly
six months later, more than twice as long as the 2 1/2 months
CompuServe promises on its Web site, the report said.

The suit is pending in Broward County Circuit Court.

CompuServe offers $100 and $400 rebate plans when customers purchase a
computer and sign up for its online service.

The $400 rebate is for a three-year Internet access plan at $21.95 per
month, which would cost the consumer $790.20 over the full three-year
term. The $100 rebate is for a one-year plan.

DRUGSTORE.COM: Stull Stull Commences Securities Suit In S.D. New York
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Stull, Stull & Brody filed Wednesday a class action lawsuit in the
United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, on
behalf of purchasers of Drugstore.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:DSCM) common stock
between July 28, 1999 and June 15, 2001, inclusive.

The complaint alleges that the following defendants violated the
federal securities laws by issuing and selling Drugstore.com common
stock pursuant to the July 28, 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:

     (i) Drugstore.com, Inc.,

    (ii) Peter M. Neupert,

   (iii) David E. Rostov,

    (iv) Jeffrey P. Bezos,

     (v) Brook H. Byers,

    (vi) L. John Doerr,

   (vii) William D. Savoy,

  (viii) Howard Schultz and

    (ix) Jed A. Smith

The complaint alleges that, in exchange for the excessive commissions,
members of the underwriting group Morgan Stanley & Co., Incorporated,
Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette and Thomas Weisel Partners LLC allocated
Drugstore.com shares to customers at the IPO price of $18.00 per share.

To receive the allocations (i.e., the ability to purchase shares) at
$18.00, the underwriters' brokerage customers had to agree to purchase
additional shares in the aftermarket at progressively higher prices.

The requirement that customers make additional purchases at
progressively higher prices as the price of Drugstore.com stock
rocketed upward (a practice known on Wall Street as "laddering") was
intended to (and did) drive Drugstore.com's share price up to
artificially high levels.

This artificial price inflation, the complaint alleges, enabled both
the underwriters and their customers to reap enormous profits by buying
stock at the $18.00 IPO price and then selling it later for a profit at
inflated aftermarket prices, which rose as high as $50 during its first
day of trading and subsequently reached a peak price of $67.50 on
August 27, 1999.

Rather than allowing their customers to keep their profits from the
IPO, the complaint alleges, the underwriters required their customers
to "kick back" some of their profits in the form of secret commissions.

These secret commission payments were sometimes calculated after the
fact based on how much profit each investor had made from his or her
IPO stock allocation.

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 Drugstore.com offering contained material
misstatements regarding the commissions that the underwriters would
derive from the IPO transaction and failed to disclose the additional
commissions and "laddering" scheme discussed above.

EUGENE CITY:Easement Suit Versus City Expands To Involve 179 Projects
----------------------------------------------------------------------
A lawsuit filed by a developer against Eugene City, Oregon has
ballooned into a class action that could involve as many as 179
projects since 1994, The Register-Guard reported Wednesday.

According to the report, Lane County Circuit Court Judge Jack Billings
has certified the lawsuit of multimillionaire developer John Hammer as
a class action case.

Hammer had charged the city last year with forcing developers to sign
over to the city property easements in return for minor planning
approvals.

This is contrary to the federal Constitution and the landmark 1994 U.S.
Supreme Court ruling in Dolan vs. City of Tigard, the suit claimed.

Hammer's complaint seeks just $2,401 plus interest for the segments of
land he had to assign to the city in exchange for splitting into two a
3.3-acre tract at Bailey Hill and Stewart roads.

In 1998, Hammer sought permission to split the last three acres that he
owned in order to sell off half.

According to his lawsuit, the city told him that to get the partition,
he had to dedicate to the city a 2.2-foot-wide easement along Bailey
Hill, a roughly 300-square-foot easement at the corner of Bailey Hill
and Stewart, and a square block of land totaling 530 square feet
alongside Bailey Hill.

The city wanted the easements for long-range projects, including
widening Bailey Hill, improving the Bailey Hill/Stewart intersection
and placing electrical equipment.

The Register-Guard reported that the certification has electrified many
Eugene property developers who believe the city strong-arms them into
making concessions to secure project approvals.

Hammer is a heavyweight in the real estate community, the report said.
He's an experienced developer with property holdings worth tens of
millions of dollars, including two golf courses, industrial buildings
and land.


EXXON MOBIL: Australian Unit Found Liable For '98 Gas Plant Explosion
---------------------------------------------------------------------
A jury found guilty Esso Australia Ltd. on all 11 charges related to
the explosion at its Longford gas processing plant in September 1998,
the Reuters News Agency reported Thursday.

Esso, a unit of Exxon Mobil Corporation, had pleaded not guilty to the
charge.  

Each charge carries a maximum penalty of A$250,00 under the
Occupational Health and Safety Act of the State of Victoria.

Victoria Supreme Court Justice Philip Cummins said a separate hearing
is scheduled today to set the penalty on the charges after a jury
returned guilty verdicts on the 11 charges.

The explosion at the Longford plant killed two employees, left the
state of Victoria almost totally without gas for about two weeks and
cut crude oil production for several months, the news agency said.

The Victorian WorkCover Authority filed the suit against Esso after an
inquiry revealed it failed to adequately train its workers.

Esso also faces a class action hearing in the Supreme Court, where
damages totaling at least A$1 billion are expected to be sought.


GUNTHER INTERNATIONAL: Settles Shareholders Suit For $250,000
-------------------------------------------------------------
Gunther International has resolved a class action lawsuit filed by
shareholders almost three years ago, the Associated Press reported
recently.  

The tech company based in Norwich, Connecticut also settled an
investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission without a fine,
the report added.

The settlement of the shareholders suit involved payment by the company
of $250,000.

"We are delighted to be done with these distractions. We can now
concentrate fully on running the business," said company President Mark
Perkins about the settlement.

Gunther reported operating income of $574,141 for its just-ended fiscal
year, and announced it has reached a re-capitalization plan with its
chief investors that will bring in an estimated $7 million to $8
million in new capital and restore black ink to its bottom line by
September, the report said.

Gunther manufactures a line of mailing, document finishing and ink jet
printing systems that analysts agree are among the best in the
industry, although management problems kept it in the red for its first
two decades.

The worst problems came in 1998 when the company announced it was
restating its earnings reports, from it discovered accounting errors
that turned what was originally announced as a slight profit over the
last two-and-a-half fiscal years into more than $5.5 million in losses.


HAVAS ADVERTISING: Faces Suit Filed By Circle.com Shareholders In DE
--------------------------------------------------------------------
A class action lawsuit was filed recently in the Delaware Chancery
Court against Snyder Communications, Havas Advertising and each
director of the Company.

The suit, filed last June 4 by two holders of Circle.com common stock,
sought preliminary and permanent injunction, or, alternatively,
monetary damages.

The lawsuit alleges that Havas Advertising and the board of directors
of Snyder Communications breached their fiduciary duties owed to the
Circle.com stockholders when considering and negotiating the proposed
merger of Snyder Communications with a subsidiary of Havas Advertising.

This was done accordingly by failing to create an independent
negotiating structure, failing to seek truly independent advice,
concealing of material information from the Circle.com stockholders,
and unfairly timing the proposed merger to the disadvantage of the
Circle.com stockholders.

Subsequent to the filing of the lawsuit, the purported representatives
of the purported Circle.com stockholder class withdrew their
application for a preliminary injunction and expedited discovery.

In turn, Havas Advertising agreed to waive any objection to
jurisdiction it may otherwise assert under French law, and, in the
event the court enters a judgment for money damages in favor of
Circle.com stockholders, to waive any right Havas Advertising may have
under French law to assert that such judgment is not enforceable
against it and any defendant indemnified by Havas Advertising.

Snyder Communications, Havas Advertising and the directors of Snyder
Communications and Havas Advertising deny all liability with respect to
the claims alleged in the complaint and believe those claims to be
without merit.

MOTIENT CORPORATION: Delaware Court Consolidates 16 Securities Suits
--------------------------------------------------------------------
A Delaware court has ordered recently the consolidation of the sixteen
lawsuits filed against Motient Corporation into one purported class
action, In re Rare Medium Group, Inc. Shareholders Litigation, C.A. No.
18897 NC.

According to the Company, the order was issued on June 22, 2001 in a

Under the terms of the order, Ram Yariv was added as an additional
party plaintiff. The law firm of Milberg Weiss Bershad Hynes & Lerach

Whole:

The complaint in Loeffelbein, et al. v. Stasior, et al., C.A.

The complaints allege that the defendants purportedly breached duties
allegedly owed to the holders of Rare Medium common stock in connection
with the merger agreement.

Specifically, the complaints allege, among other things, that:

     (i) the holders of Rare Medium preferred stock, engaged in self-
         dealing in the proposed merger, and

    (ii) the Rare Medium board allegedly breached its fiduciary duties
         by agreeing to distribute the merger consideration differently

breaches of fiduciary duties.

Plaintiffs seek, among other things, (a) a declaration that the
complaints are properly maintainable as a class action; (b) injunctive
relief; (c) monetary damages; (d) attorneys' fees, costs and expenses;

Milberg Weiss Bershad Hynes & Lerach LLP filed Wednesday a class action
lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Palm Inc.,
(NASDAQ:PALM) between March 1, 2000 and December 6, 2000, inclusive.

PUBLISHERS CLEARING: Settles 26-State Deceptive Mail Suit For $34M
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Publishers Clearing House settled Tuesday a lawsuit that accused it of
using deceptive mailing practices to dupe the elderly, the Associated
Press reported.

Twenty-six states, including Wisconsin, inked the settlement involving
$34 million in customer refunds, legal expenses and administrative
costs to the states.

Wisconsin, the only state that took the case to trial, will get about
$2 million, including more money in legal fees than other states, and
$750,000 in compensation for victims who haven't yet come forward,
Wisconsin Attorney General James Doyle said.

Doyle said the state has already identified about 1,400 people eligible
for refunds, though some collected in a private class action lawsuit
settled for $30 million in February last year.

Under the agreement, the sweepstakes company is also required to stop
what the state called false and deceptive practices to sell products in
the 26 states and will no longer be allowed to say "You are a winner!"
on mailings or on the Internet.

"It also will be banned from using simulated checks or saying that its
'Prize Patrol' is coming to the recipient's house," the report said.

Company spokesman Christopher Irving said settling the suit was in the
company's best interest.

Wisconsin sued the company in 1999 in Columbia County Circuit Court,
alleging that it illegally targets the elderly with its mass mailings
urging people to buy magazines and other consumer goods such as a video
about World War II.

The other states that participated in the settlement were: Arkansas,
Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Iowa, Indiana,
Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota,
Missouri, North Carolina, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode
Island, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and West Virginia.


RAMP NETWORK: Shareholders File Suit Over Manipulation Of Statements
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Shareholders of Ramp Networks have filed a securities suit charging the
Company of colluding with distributors to take possession of its
merchandise and then counting those goods as sold to inflate its
financial results.

According to a recent report by Interactive Week, the suit has claimed
that Ingram Micro and Tech Data agreed to store Ramp's products and
then remove shrink-wrap packaging and return the goods as defective.

The suit also alleged that Ramp agreed to ship merchandise knowing that
it would be returned after a financial reporting period ended, the
report said.

In November, Ramp changed its accounting practices and restated its
financial results for the first nine months of 2000, increasing a net
loss by $1.3 million to $27 million.

"On occasion, Ramp would make 'sweetheart deals' to keep Ramp products
with Ingram Micro rather than agree to process them as returns," the
class action suit against Ramp charges.

Lionel Glancy, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said major distributors
such as Ingram often cooperate with manufacturers to inflate their
financial returns. The practice is known as "channel stuffing," he
said.

The company has denied the allegations.
