1134 MADISON AVENUE: "Avila" Sues Over FLSA, NYLL Breach
--------------------------------------------------------
Jose Avila, on behalf of himself, FLSA Collective Plaintiffs and
the Class, Plaintiff v. 1134 Madison Avenue Restaurant Corp. d/b/a
New Amity and Stamatios Bastas, Defendants, Case No. 1:17-cv-02382
(S.D. N.Y., April 3, 2017) seeks to recover unpaid minimum wages,
unpaid overtime, liquidated damages and attorneys' fees and costs
pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") and New York
Labor Law ("NYLL").

Plaintiff Jose Avila was hired by Defendants to work as a waiter
for the New Amity restaurant.

The Complaint says Defendants paid Plaintiff and the Tipped
Subclass the invalid "tip credit" minimum wage, which is less than
the Federal and New York State minimum wages. Defendants were not
entitled to take any tip credits under the FLSA or NYLL because
they (i) failed to properly provide notice to all tipped employees
that Defendants were taking a tip credit in violation of the FLSA
and NYLL, (ii) failed to provide proper wage statements informing
tipped employees of the amount of tip credit taken for each
payment period in violation of the NYLL and (iii) failed to track
the amount of tips received daily in violation of NYLL.

The Defendants operate a restaurant under the trade name "New
Amity" located at 1134 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10028. [BN]

AAA AUTO CLUB: MAO-MSO Seeks Reimbursement Under Medicare Act
-------------------------------------------------------------
MAO-MSO Recovery II, LLC, a Delaware entity, et al., Plaintiffs v.
AAA Auto Club Enterprises, a California company, Defendant, Case
No. 8:17-cv-00601 (C.D. Cal., April 3, 2017) seeks reimbursement
for medical expenses paid for by the Plaintiffs and the putative
Class Members that should have been paid, in the first instance by
Defendant under the Medicare Act.

The Complaint says the Medicare Beneficiaries entered into
settlement agreement with Defendant for the injuries that
Defendant had primary responsibility to pay. These settlements
demonstrated Defendant's responsibility to reimburse Plaintiffs
and the putative Class Members under the Medicare Act. As such,
Defendant, the primary payer, was required to make appropriate
reimbursement for the conditional Medicare benefits advanced by
Plaintiffs and the putative Class Members on behalf of the
Medicare Beneficiaries. However, Defendant failed to pay or
reimburse the Medicare Beneficiaries' Medicare Advantage
Organizations ("MAOs") for the payments made by the MAOs.

Defendant AAA Auto Club Enterprises and its affiliated offers

ALLSCRIPTS HEALTHCARE: Second Mediation Session Underway
--------------------------------------------------------
A second mediation session is ongoing in a class action lawsuit by
Physicians Healthsource, Inc., Allscripts Healthcare Solutions,
Inc. said in its Form 10-K Report filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission on February 27, 2017, for the fiscal year
ended December 31, 2016.

The Company said, "On May 1, 2012, Physicians Healthsource, Inc.
filed a class action complaint in the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of Illinois against us. The complaint alleges
that, on multiple occasions between July 2008 and December 2011,
we or our agent sent advertisements by fax to the plaintiff and a
class of similarly situated persons, without first receiving the
recipients' express permission or invitation in violation of the
Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. Sec. 227 (the
"TCPA"). The plaintiff seeks $500 for each alleged violation of
the TCPA, treble damages if the Court finds the violations to be
willful, knowing or intentional; and injunctive and other relief.
Allscripts answered the complaint denying all material allegations
and asserting a number of affirmative defenses, as well as
counterclaims for breach of a license agreement.  After
plaintiff's motion to compel arbitration of the counterclaims was
granted, Allscripts made a demand in arbitration where the
counterclaims remain pending.  Discovery in the proposed class
action has now concluded."

"On March 31, 2016, plaintiff filed its motion for class
certification.  On May 31, 2016, we filed our opposition to
plaintiff's motion for class certification, and simultaneously
moved for summary judgment on all of plaintiff's claims. Both
motions have been fully briefed since August 22, 2016 and remain
pending.

"On January 10, 2017, at the request of the Magistrate Judge
presiding over the case, the parties participated in a mediation
session with a private mediator.

"A second mediation session is ongoing. In the interim, our
counterclaims were heard in an arbitration proceeding before the
American Arbitration Association in North Carolina on January 30,
2017. The arbiter had not yet issued a decision."

AMERICAN EQUITY: Litigation Liability Reduced by $4.1 Million
-------------------------------------------------------------
American Equity Investment Life Holding Company said in its Form
10-K Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
February 27, 2017, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016,
that the Company has paid out an additional $4.1 million and
reduced its litigation liability in the case, In Re: American
Equity Annuity Practices and Sales Litigation, by $4.1 million.

The Company said, "We were a defendant in a purported class
action, McCormack, et al. v. American Equity Investment Life
Insurance Company, et al., in the United States District Court for
the Central District of California, Western Division and
Anagnostis v. American Equity, et al., coordinated in the Central
District, entitled, In Re: American Equity Annuity Practices and
Sales Litigation (complaint filed September 7, 2005) (the "Los
Angeles Case"), involving allegations of improper sales practices
and similar claims.  The Los Angeles Case was a consolidated
action involving several lawsuits filed by putative class members
seeking class action status for a national class of purchasers of
annuities issued by us."

"On July 30, 2013, the parties entered into a settlement agreement
and stipulated to certification of the case as a class action for
settlement purposes only. A class member filed an appeal with the
United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on February
28, 2014. On February 17, 2016, the United States Court of Appeals
for the Ninth Circuit affirmed the terms of the settlement
agreement and on April 6, 2016, the class member's subsequent
request for a rehearing en banc was denied. All remaining
opportunities for appeal have passed.

"During the third quarter of 2016, we reduced the litigation
liability related to the Los Angeles Case by $6.4 million as we
paid out $1.8 million in partial settlement, reclassified $1.8
million from the litigation liability to policy benefit reserves
and other policy funds and contract claims and released $2.8
million of the litigation liability as additional information
became available concerning the nature and magnitude of claims
based on the terms of the settlement.

"During the fourth quarter of 2016, we paid out an additional $4.1
million and reduced the litigation liability by $4.1 million.
After this activity, we estimate our litigation liability in this
matter to be $0.6 million based on our best estimate of probable
loss. There can be no assurance that any other pending or future
litigation will not have a material adverse effect on our
business, financial condition, or results of operations.
In addition to our commitments to fund mortgage loans, we have
unfunded commitments at December 31, 2016 to limited partnerships
of $48.4 million and to secured bank loans of $34.3 million."

American Equity Investment is a leader in the development and sale
of fixed index and fixed rate annuity products.

situated, Plaintiff, against AMERICAN EXPRESS CENTURION BANK,
Defendant, Case No. 7:17-cv-02507-VB (S.D.N.Y., April 6, 2017),

APPLE HOSPITALITY: $32MM Settlement in "Quinn" Suit Has Final OK
----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, Quinn v. Knight, et al., District Judge John A.
Gibney, Jr. has entered an Order and Final Judgment approving the
Settlement set forth in the parties' Amended Stipulation and
Agreement of Compromise, Settlement, and Release, executed on
December 7, 2016.

Apple Hospitality REIT, Inc. said in its Form 10-K Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2017,
for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, that on July 19,
2016, a purported shareholder of Apple REIT Ten, Inc. ("Apple
Ten"), now part of the Company, commenced a derivative action in
the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
Virginia, captioned and numbered Quinn v. Knight, et al, Case No.
3:16-cv-610 (the "Complaint").  The Complaint names as defendants
the members of Apple Ten's board of directors (the "Directors"),
certain officers of Apple Ten and the Company (collectively, the
"Officers"), the Company and, as a nominal defendant, Apple Ten.
On November 2, 2016, the parties reached an agreement in principle
to settle the litigation for $32 million, which settlement was
preliminarily approved by the Court in December 2016.

The Fairness Hearing was held March 16, 2017.

The Company has included the settlement amount in accounts payable
and other liabilities in its consolidated balance sheet as of
December 31, 2016 and in transaction and litigation costs in the
Company's consolidated statement of operations for the year then
ended.  The Company has also included approximately $10 million of
insurance proceeds from its director and officer insurance
carriers received in January 2017 in other assets, net in its
consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2016 and in
transaction and litigation costs in the Company's consolidated
statement of operations for the year then ended.  At this time, no
assurance can be given that the proposed settlement will be
approved, and therefore the actual loss incurred could be in
excess of the amount accrued as of December 31, 2016.

The Company, formed in November 2007 as a Virginia corporation, is
a self-advised REIT that invests in income-producing real estate,
primarily in the lodging sector, in the United States.


APPLE HOSPITALITY: Court Says Wilchfort & Moses Suits Unrelated
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, Moses v. Apple Hospitality REIT, Inc. et al., Case
No. 1:14-cv-03131 (E.D.N.Y.), Chief Judge Dora Lizette Irizarry on
April 12, 2017, denied the parties' request to reassign Wilchfort
v. Knight , et al., No. 1:17-cv-1046 (MKB)(ST) to Chief Judge
Irizarry.

While Wilchfort and Moses v. Apple Hospitality REIT, Inc. , No.
1:14-cv-3131 (DLI)(SMG) have some similarities, the cases are not
"related" as that term is used in Local Civil Rule 1.6 and Rule
for Division of Business Among District Judges 50.3.1. Given the
advanced procedure of Moses, particularly the parties' indication
that they have reached a settlement, and that no discovery has
been conducted in either case, substantial saving of judicial
resources is unlikely to result from assigning both cases to the
same judge and magistrate judge.

The Motion to Reassign Case was sought by Apple Hospitality REIT,
Inc., Glenn W. Bunting, Kent W. Colton, Anthony Francis Keating,
III, Lisa B. Kern, Glade M. Knight, Bruce H. Matson, Bryan Peery,
Ronald A. Rosenfeld, Michael S. Waters, Robert M. Wily.

Apple Hospitality REIT, Inc. said in its Form 10-K Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2017,
for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, that on April 22,
2014, Plaintiff Susan Moses, purportedly a shareholder of Apple
REIT Seven, Inc. ("Apple Seven") and Apple REIT Eight, Inc.
("Apple Eight"), filed a class action against the Company and
several individual directors on behalf of all then-existing
shareholders and former shareholders of Apple Seven and Apple
Eight, who purchased additional shares under the Apple REITs'
Dividend Reinvestment Plans ("DRIP") between July 17, 2007 and
February 12, 2014 (Susan Moses, et al. v. Apple Hospitality REIT,
Inc., et al., 14-CV-3131 (DLI)(SMG)).

In January 2017, the parties reached an agreement in principle to
settle the litigation for $5.5 million, which settlement remains
subject to final court approval.

At the Telephone Conference held on Feb. 8, 2017, before
Magistrate Judge Steven M. Gold, the parties reported that they
have reached a settlement and indicated they would file a joint
motion for preliminary approval, class certification and notice,
by April 10.

On April 5, Susan Moses filed a Joint Motion for Extension of Time
to File Motion for Class Certification.  Magistrate Judge Gold
graned the request, and directed Counsel to submit a joint motion
for preliminary approval by May 5.

The Company has included the settlement amount in accounts payable
and other liabilities in its consolidated balance sheet as of
December 31, 2016 and in transaction and litigation costs in the
Company's consolidated statement of operations for the year then
ended.  At this time, no assurance can be given that the proposed
settlement will be approved, and therefore the actual loss
incurred could be in excess of the amount accrued as of December
31, 2016.

The Company, formed in November 2007 as a Virginia corporation, is
a self-advised REIT that invests in income-producing real estate,
primarily in the lodging sector, in the United States.

CRESTWOOD EQUITY: Appellate Court Ruling Expected in Mid-2017
-------------------------------------------------------------
Crestwood Equity Partners LP and Crestwood Midstream Partners LP
said in their Form 10-K Report filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission on February 27, 2017, for the fiscal year
ended December 31, 2016, that the company anticipates a ruling on
a class action appeal in mid-2017.

On May 20, 2015, Lawrence G. Farber, a purported unitholder of
Crestwood Midstream, filed a complaint in the Southern District of
the United States, Houston Division, as a putative class action on
behalf of Crestwood Midstream's unitholders, entitled Lawrence G.
Farber, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated v. Crestwood Midstream Partners LP, Crestwood Midstream
GP LLC, Robert G. Phillips, Alvin Bledsoe, Michael G. France,
Philip D. Gettig, Warren H. Gfellar, David Lumpkins, John J.
Sherman, David Wood, Crestwood Equity Partners LP, Crestwood
Equity GP LLC, CEQP ST Sub LLC, MGP GP, LLC, Crestwood Midstream
Holdings LP, and Crestwood Gas Services GP LLC. This complaint
alleges, among other things, that Crestwood Midstream's general
partner breached its fiduciary duties, certain individual
defendants breached their fiduciary duties of loyalty and due
care, and that other defendants aided and abetted such breaches.

On July 21, 2015, Isaac Aron, another purported unitholder of
Crestwood Midstream, filed a complaint in the Southern District of
the United States, Houston Division, as a putative class action on
behalf of Crestwood Midstream's unitholders, entitled Isaac Aron,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated vs.
Robert G. Phillps, Alvin Bledsoe, Michael G. France, Philip D.
Getting, Warren H. Gfeller, David Lumpkins, John J. Sherman, David
Wood, Crestwood Midstream Partners, LP, Crestwood Midstream
Holdings LP, Crestwood Midstream GP LLC, Crestwood Gas Services
GP, LLC, Crestwood Equity Partners LP, Crestwood Equity GP LLC,
CEQP ST Sub LLC and MGP GP, LLC. The complaint alleges, among
other things, that Crestwood Midstream's general partner and
certain individual defendants violated Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 14a-9 by filing an
alleged incomplete and misleading Form S-4 Registration Statement
with the SEC.

On August 12, 2015, the defendants filed a motion to consolidate
the Farber and Aron cases, which the court granted on September 4,
2015. Farber subsequently dismissed his claims against all the
defendants on September 16, 2015. Aron filed a motion for
temporary restraining order and requested an expedited preliminary
injunction hearing, which had been scheduled for September 23,
2015. On September 22, 2015, however, the parties entered into a
memorandum of understanding (MOU) with respect to a proposed
settlement of the Aron lawsuit. The settlement contemplated by the
MOU is subject to a number of conditions, including notice to the
class, limited confirmatory discovery and final court approval of
the settlement.

In October 2016, the court approved the settlement. On November 7,
2016, a unitholder filed an appeal of the settlement.

"We anticipate a ruling on the appeal in mid-2017, and if is
denied, the settlement will become final. We do not expect the
settlement to have a material impact to our consolidated financial
statements," the Company said.

Crestwood Equity, a Delaware limited partnership formed in March
2001, is a master limited partnership (MLP) that develops,
acquires, owns or controls, and operates primarily fee-based
assets and operations within the energy midstream sector.

GENWORTH FINANCIAL: Hialeah Case Parties in Settlement Talks
------------------------------------------------------------
The parties in the case, City of Hialeah Employees' Retirement
System v. Genworth Financial, Inc., et al., are engaged in
settlement discussions, Genworth Financial, Inc. said in its Form
10-K Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
February 27, 2017, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.

The company said, "In August 2014, Genworth Financial, Inc., its
current chief executive officer and its then current chief
financial officer were named in a putative class action lawsuit
captioned Manuel Esguerra v. Genworth Financial, Inc., et al, in
the United States District Court for the Southern District of New
York. Plaintiff alleged securities law violations involving
certain disclosures in 2013 and 2014 concerning Genworth's long-
term care insurance reserves. The lawsuit sought unspecified
compensatory damages, costs and expenses, including counsel fees
and expert fees."

"In October 2014, a putative class action lawsuit captioned City
of Pontiac General Employees' Retirement System v. Genworth
Financial, Inc., et al., was filed in the United States District
Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. This lawsuit names the
same defendants, alleges the same securities law violations, seeks
the same damages and covers the same class as the Esguerra
lawsuit.

"Following the filing of the City of Pontiac lawsuit, the Esguerra
lawsuit was voluntarily dismissed without prejudice allowing the
City of Pontiac lawsuit to proceed.

"In the City of Pontiac lawsuit, the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of Virginia appointed Her Majesty the
Queen in Right of Alberta and Fresno County Employees' Retirement
Association as lead plaintiffs and designated the caption of the
action as In re Genworth Financial, Inc. Securities Litigation.

"On December 22, 2014, the lead plaintiffs filed an amended
complaint. On February 5, 2015, we filed a motion to dismiss
plaintiffs' amended complaint. On May 1, 2015, the court denied
the motion to dismiss.

"We engaged in mediation in the fourth quarter of 2015, continuing
into the first quarter of 2016, and accrued $25 million in
connection with this matter, during the fourth quarter of 2015,
which was the amount of our self-insured retention on our
executive and organizational liability insurance program.

"On March 11, 2016, in connection with the mediation, we reached
an agreement in principle to settle the action. On April 1, 2016,
the parties entered into a stipulation and agreement of
settlement. The settlement provides for a full release of all
defendants in connection with the allegations made in the lawsuit.
We believe that the plaintiffs' claims are without merit, but we
have settled the lawsuit to avoid the burden, risk and expense of
further litigation.

"The agreement provides for a settlement payment to the class of
$219 million, inclusive of all plaintiffs' attorneys fees and
expenses and settlement costs, of which $150 million was paid by
our insurance carriers, and $69 million pre-tax was paid by
Genworth. Our payment was made into an escrow account during the
first quarter of 2016. We also incurred additional legal fees and
expenses of approximately $10 million pre-tax, for a total
additional pre-tax incurred amount of $79 million in the first
quarter of 2016.

"On April 13, 2016, the court granted plaintiffs' motion for
preliminary approval of the settlement, provisional certification
of the class for settlement purposes only, and issuance of notice
to settlement class members. The court held a hearing on July 20,
2016 and approved the settlement. On September 26, 2016, the court
entered final judgment in the action. The time to appeal the entry
of this judgment expired on October 26, 2016.

"As a result of the approved settlement, all coverage available to
Genworth under our 2014 executive and organizational liability
insurance program was exhausted. Therefore, Genworth does not have
coverage under the program to pay any future settlements or
judgments in relation to litigation brought during the 2014 policy
year, including the City of Hialeah Employees' Retirement System
v. Genworth Financial, Inc., et al., case.

"In April 2014, Genworth Financial, Inc., its former chief
executive officer and its then current chief financial officer
were named in a putative class action lawsuit captioned City of
Hialeah Employees' Retirement System v. Genworth Financial, Inc.,
et al., in the United States District Court for the Southern
District of New York. Plaintiff alleges securities law violations
involving certain disclosures in 2012 concerning Genworth's
Australian mortgage insurance business, including our plans for an
IPO of the business. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages, costs
and attorneys' fees and such equitable/injunctive relief as the
court may deem proper. The United States District Court for the
Southern District of New York appointed City of Hialeah Employees'
Retirement System and New Bedford Contributory Retirement System
as lead plaintiffs and designated the caption of the action as In
re Genworth Financial, Inc. Securities Litigation.

"On October 3, 2014, the lead plaintiffs filed an amended
complaint. On December 2, 2014, we filed a motion to dismiss
plaintiffs' amended complaint. On March 25, 2015, the United
States District Court for the Southern District of New York denied
the motion but entered an order dismissing the amended complaint
with leave to replead.

"On April 17, 2015, plaintiffs filed a second amended complaint.
We filed a motion to dismiss the second amended complaint and on
June 16, 2015, the court denied the motion to dismiss. On January
22, 2016, we filed a motion for reconsideration of the court's
June 16, 2015 order denying our motion to dismiss which the court
denied on March 3, 2016. On January 29, 2016, plaintiffs filed a
motion for class certification which we opposed. On March 7, 2016,
the court granted plaintiffs' motion for class certification.

"The parties are engaged in settlement discussions. However, if
those discussions are unsuccessful, we intend to vigorously defend
this action.

"As discussed, we have exhausted all coverage under our 2014
executive and organizational liability insurance program
applicable to this case; therefore, there is no insurance coverage
for Genworth with respect to any settlement or judgment amount
related to this litigation.

GENWORTH FINANCIAL: "Faverman" and "Ratliff" Suits Dismissed
------------------------------------------------------------
Genworth Financial, Inc. said in its Form 10-K Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2017, for
the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 that the plaintiffs have
dismissed the "Faverman" and "Ratliff" class action lawsuits.

The Company said, "In November 2016, Genworth Financial, Inc., its
chief executive officer and members of its current board of
directors were named in two putative class action lawsuits
captioned Faverman v. Genworth Financial, Inc., et al and Ratliff
v. Genworth Financial, Inc., et al, in the United States District
Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Richmond Division. The
plaintiffs in those actions allege breach of fiduciary duty and
seek to enjoin the acquisition of the publicly owned shares of
Genworth Financial, Inc. common stock by Asia Pacific Global
Capital Co., Ltd., through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Asia
Pacific Global Capital USA Corporation. Both lawsuits seek
unspecified damages, costs, attorneys' fees, experts' fees and
such other and further equitable relief as the court may deem
proper.

"On November 15, 2016, the plaintiff in the Faverman action filed
a voluntary dismissal without prejudice. On November 22, 2016, the
plaintiff in the Ratliff action filed a voluntary dismissal
without prejudice."

GENWORTH FINANCIAL: Amended Complaint Filed in "Leifer" Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
Erika Leifer filed an amended complaint against Genworth
Financial, Inc. et al., on April 10, 2017.  The filing is on the
heels of a motion to dismiss the defendants filed on March 27.

In a March 16 Order, the Hon. John A Gibney, Jr. granted Ms.
Leifer's Unopposed Motion to Appoint Interim Co-Lead Class
Counsel, Liaison Counsel and Steering Committee.  Berger &
Montague, P.C. and Goldman, Scarlato & Penny, P.C. were appointed
as Interim Co-Lead Class Counsel.  Kelly & Crandall, PLC was
appointed as Interim Liaison Counsel.  Kelly & Crandall, PLC,
Barrack Rodos & Bacine, Bonnett, Fairboum, Friedman and Balint,
P.C., and Edelson & Associates, LLC were appointed to comprise
Plaintiffs' Steering Committee.

The Company said in its Form 10-K Report filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2017, for the fiscal year
ended December 31, 2016, that in December 2016, Genworth
Financial, Inc., its current chief executive officer, its former
chief executive officer, two former chief financial officers, and
two of its insurance subsidiaries were named as defendants in a
putative class action lawsuit captioned Leifer, et al v. Genworth
Financial, Inc., et al, in the United States District Court for
the Eastern District of Virginia, Richmond Division. Plaintiffs
allege that the defendants' financial disclosures and alleged
misrepresentations concerning Genworth's long-term care insurance
reserves caused harm to current and former long-term care
insurance policyholders and seek unspecified damages, declaratory
and injunctive relief, attorneys' fees, costs and pre-judgment and
post-judgment interest.

"We intend to vigorously defend this action," the Company said.

Genworth Financial facilitates homeownership in the United States
and internationally by providing mortgage insurance products that

protecting lenders against the risk of default.


GENWORTH FINANCIAL: Rosenfeld Trust and Chopp Suits Transferred
---------------------------------------------------------------
The court in the District of Delaware has entered an order
transferring the Rosenfeld Family Trust and Chopp class action
lawsuits to the Eastern District of Virginia, Genworth Financial,
Inc. said in its Form 10-K Report filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission on February 27, 2017, for the fiscal year
ended December 31, 2016.

The Company said, "In January 2017, two putative stockholder class
action lawsuits, captioned Rice v. Genworth Financial
Incorporated, et al, and James v. Genworth Financial, Inc. et al,
were filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern
District of Virginia, Richmond Division, against Genworth and its
board of directors."

"A third putative stockholder class action lawsuit captioned
Rosenfeld Family Trust v. Genworth Financial, Inc. et al, was
filed in the United States District Court for the District of
Delaware against Genworth and its board of directors. In February
2017, a fourth putative class action lawsuit captioned Chopp v.
Genworth Financial, Inc. et al, was filed in the United States
District Court for the District of Delaware against Genworth and
its board of directors and a fifth putative class action lawsuit
captioned Ratliff v. Genworth Financial, Inc. et al, was filed in
the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
Virginia, Richmond Division, against Genworth and its board of
directors."

"The complaints in all five actions allege, among other things,
that the preliminary proxy statement filed by Genworth with the
SEC on December 21, 2016 contains false and/or materially
misleading statements and/or omits material information. The
complaints assert claims under Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and seek equitable relief,
including declaratory and injunctive relief, and an award of
attorneys' fees and expenses.

"On February 2, 2017, the plaintiff in Rice filed a motion for a
preliminary injunction to enjoin the transaction described in the
preliminary proxy. On February 10, 2017, defendants filed an

GREEN DOT: Suit over Service Disruptions Pending
------------------------------------------------
Green Dot Corporation continues to defend class suits related to
limited disruptions in service, the Company said in its Form 10-K
Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
February 27, 2017, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.

The Company said, "During the three months ended June 30, 2016, we
continued our planned conversion of customer files from our legacy
third-party card processor to our new third-party card processor.
As part of the conversion process, a small percentage of our
active cardholders experienced limited disruptions in service that
resulted in losses to us including, but not limited to,
approximately $4.1 million in specific credits we paid to our
customers and specific cardholder transaction losses incurred by
us as a result of the service disruption. These specific losses
have been fully reimbursed by our new third-party processor, while
other expenses we incurred as a result of the disruption in
service were not reimbursed to us."

"As a result of this limited disruption in service, two putative
class action complaints were filed during the second quarter of
2016. Any settlement amount paid to resolve the consolidated class
actions will be borne equally between us and our new third-party
card processor. We recorded an estimated accrual of approximately
$2.8 million, which represents our portion of the estimated total
settlement amount inclusive of legal fees, of which our insurance
carrier has agreed to reimburse us for up to approximately $2.3
million. These amounts are recorded in other accrued liabilities
and account receivable, respectively, on our consolidated balance
sheet as of December 31, 2016.

IMPERVA INC: Class Certification Motion Underway
------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff's motion for class certification in a shareholder
lawsuit remains pending, Imperva, Inc. said in its Form 10-K
Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
February 27, 2017, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.

The Company said, "On April 11, 2014, a purported shareholder
class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court
for the Northern District of California against us and certain of
our current and former officers. On August 7, 2014, the Court
entered an order appointing lead plaintiff and counsel for the
purported class. The lead plaintiff filed an amended complaint on
October 10, 2014. The lawsuit named us and certain of our current
and former officers and purported to bring suit on behalf of those
investors who purchased our publicly traded securities between May
2, 2013 and April 9, 2014. The plaintiff alleged that defendants
made false and misleading statements about our operations and
business and financial results and purported to assert claims for
violations of the federal securities laws. The amended complaint
sought unspecified compensatory damages, interest thereon, costs
incurred in the action and equitable/injunctive or other relief."

"On January 6, 2015, defendants filed a motion to dismiss the
amended complaint. On September 17, 2015, the Court granted
defendants' motion to dismiss with leave to amend. The lead
plaintiff filed an amended complaint on January 13, 2016, again
naming the same current and former officers, alleging false and
misleading statements about our operations and business and
financial results, and seeking the same relief.

"On February 10, 2016, defendants filed a motion to dismiss the
amended complaint. On May 16, 2016, the Court granted the motion
in part and denied the motion in part.  On September 7, 2016,
defendants filed their operative answer to the amended complaint.
On October 19, 2016, plaintiff filed a motion for class
certification.

LIFE STORAGE: Still Faces Consumer Fraud Class Suit in New Jersey
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Life Storage, Inc. and Life Storage LP said in their Form 10-K
Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
February 27, 2017, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016,
that the Company continues to defend an amended complaint in a
class action lawsuit in New Jersey.

On or about August 25, 2014, a putative class action was filed
against the Company in the Superior Court of New Jersey Law
Division Burlington County. The action seeks to obtain
declaratory, injunctive and monetary relief for a class of
consumers based upon alleged violations by the Company of the New
Jersey Truth in Customer Contract, Warranty and Notice Act, the
New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act and the New Jersey Insurance
Producer Licensing Act.

On October 17, 2014, the action was removed from the Superior
Court of New Jersey Law Division Burlington County to the United
States District Court for the District of New Jersey. The Company
brought a motion to partially dismiss the complaint for failure to
state a claim, and on July 16, 2015, the Company's motion was
granted in part and denied in part.

On October 20, 2016, the complaint was amended to add a claim that
the Company's insurance program violates New Jersey consumer
protection laws. The Company intends to vigorously defend the
action, and the possibility of any adverse outcome cannot be
determined at this time.

MEAD JOHNSON: Defending "Kirkham" Class Suit over Reckitt Merger
----------------------------------------------------------------
Mead Johnson Nutrition Company is defending a class action lawsuit
related to a merger agreement, the Company said in its Form 10-K
Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
February 27, 2017, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.

On February 10, 2017, the Company entered into an Agreement and
Plan of Merger with Reckitt Benckiser Group plc, a company
incorporated in England and Wales, and Marigold Merger Sub, Inc.,
a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of
Reckitt Benckiser, pursuant to which Reckitt Benckiser will
indirectly acquire the Company by means of a merger of Merger Sub
with and into the Company on the terms and subject to the
conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement.  The Merger
Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by
the Merger Agreement have been unanimously approved by the
Company's board of directors.

On February 14, 2017, a stockholder of the Company filed a
purported stockholder class action lawsuit in Cook County,
Illinois, captioned Kirkham v. Altschuler, et al., 2017-CH-02109.
The defendants are the Company, its board of directors, Reckitt
Benckiser and Merger Sub. The lawsuit alleges that the Company's
board of directors violated their fiduciary duties and that the
Company, Reckitt Benckiser and Merger Sub aided and abetted such
breaches, in each case in connection with the transactions
contemplated by the Merger Agreement. The lawsuit seeks, among
other things, to enjoin consummation of the Merger. The Company
and its directors intend to vigorously defend against the
allegations in the complaint.

PINNACLE FINANCIAL: Business Court Approved $300,000 Settlement
---------------------------------------------------------------
Pinnacle Financial Partners, Inc. said in its Form 10-K Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27,
2017, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, that the
Davidson County, Tennessee Business Court Pilot Project has
entered a Final Order and Judgment approving a class action
settlement and awarding plaintiff $300,000 in attorneys' fees and
expenses, and dismissing the action with prejudice.

On May 9, 2016 a purported class action complaint was filed in the
Chancery Court for the State of Tennessee, 20th Judicial District
at Nashville, styled Stephen Bushansky, on behalf of himself and
all others similarly situated, Plaintiff, versus Avenue Financial
Holdings, Inc. Ronald L. Samuels, Kent Cleaver, David G. Anderson,
Agenia Clark, James F. Deutsch, Marty Dickens, Patrick G. Emery,
Nancy Falls, Joseph C. Galante, David Ingram. Stephen Moore, Ken
Robold, Karen Saul and Pinnacle Financial Partners, Inc.,
Defendants (Case No. 16-489-IV). The complaint alleged that the
individual defendants breached their fiduciary duties by, among
other things, approving the sale of Avenue for an inadequate price
as the result of a flawed sales process, agreeing to the inclusion
of unreasonable deal protection devices in the Avenue Merger
Agreement, approving the Avenue Merger in order to receive
benefits not equally shared by all other shareholders of Avenue,
and issuing materially misleading and incomplete disclosures to
Avenue's shareholders. The lawsuit also alleged claims against
Avenue and Pinnacle Financial for aiding and abetting the
individual defendants' breaches of fiduciary duties.  The
plaintiff purported to seek class-wide relief, including but not
limited to monetary damages and an award of interest, attorney's
fees, and expenses. On May 18, 2016, the Bushansky litigation was
transferred to the Davidson County, Tennessee Business Court Pilot
Project (the "Business Court").

On June 10, 2016, the parties entered into a memorandum of
understanding with the plaintiff regarding a settlement of the
Bushansky litigation and a release and dismissal of all claims
which were or could have been asserted therein. Pursuant to the
terms of the settlement, Avenue and Pinnacle Financial agreed to
make certain supplemental disclosures to the definitive proxy
statement/prospectus. Those supplemental disclosures were issued
on June 13, 2016.

On October 18, 2016, the parties finalized a formal Stipulation of
Settlement, which the parties submitted to the Business Court for
approval along with a proposed Order Granting Preliminary Approval
of Settlement, Approving Form of Notice to Class, and Setting
Final Settlement Hearing ("Preliminary Approval Order"), a
proposed Notice of Pendency and Proposed Settlement of Class
Action ("Notice"), and a proposed Final Order and Judgment.
Plaintiff also indicated that it would request from the Business
Court an award of $300,000 in attorneys' fees and expenses, and
defendants agreed not to object to a request in this amount.

On October 25, 2016, the Business Court issued a Preliminary
Approval Order preliminarily approving the settlement and
certifying a class, and providing for mailing of the Notice to
class members. On December 16, 2016, following mailing of the
Notice to the class in accordance with the Preliminary Approval
Order and a hearing on the proposed settlement, the Business Court
entered the Final Order and Judgment approving the proposed
settlement, awarding plaintiff $300,000 in attorneys' fees and
expenses, and dismissing the action with prejudice.

The fact of the settlement and Pinnacle Financial's and Avenue's
agreement to make the supplemental disclosures in connection
therewith should not be construed as an admission of wrongdoing or
liability by any defendant.  The defendants have vigorously
denied, and continue to vigorously deny, any wrongdoing or
liability with respect to the facts and claims asserted, or which
could have been asserted, in the Bushansky litigation, including
that they have committed any violations of law or breach of
fiduciary duty, aided and abetted any violations of law or
breaches of fiduciary duty, acted improperly in any way or have
any liability or owe any damages of any kind to the plaintiff or
the purported class.  Pinnacle Financial believes the claims
asserted in the Bushansky action are without merit, but entered
into the settlement to avoid the costs, risks and uncertainties
inherent in litigation.

Pinnacle Financial Partners is a bank holding company
headquartered in Tennessee, with $11.2 billion in assets as of
December 31, 2016.


RASIER LLC: Faces "Van" Class Suit in Cent. District California

4, 2017).

The Defendants operate a transportation network company
headquartered in San Francisco, California. [BN]

Sophano Van is pro se plaintiff.


REGENCY CENTERS: Settlement Reached in Merger Class Suit
--------------------------------------------------------
Regency Centers Corporation and Regency Centers, L.P. said in
their Form 10-K Report filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission on February 27, 2017, for the fiscal year ended
December 31, 2016, that the Company has determined to provide
supplemental disclosures related to a merger transaction as part
of a stipulation of settlement.

On November 14, 2016, Regency Centers Corporation entered into an
Agreement and Plan of Merger with Equity One, Inc., pursuant to
which, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain
conditions, Equity One will merge with and into the Regency
Centers Corporation, with Regency Centers Corporation being the
surviving corporation.  The combined company will retain the
Regency name and continue to trade under the ticker symbol "REG"
on the New York Stock Exchange.

After the announcement of the merger agreement on November 14,
2016, a putative class action was filed on behalf of a purported
stockholder in the Circuit Court for Duval County, Florida, under
the following caption: Robert Garfield on Behalf of Himself and
All Others Similarly Situated vs. Regency Centers Corporation,
Martin E. Stein, Jr., John C. Schweitzer, Raymond L. Bank, Bryce
Blair, C. Ronald Blankenship, J. Dix Druce, Jr., Mary Lou Fiala,
David P. O'Connor, and Thomas G. Wattles, No. 16-2017-CA-000688-
XXXX-MA, filed February 3, 2017.

The class action alleges, among other matters, that the definitive
joint proxy statement/prospectus filed by Regency and Equity One
with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on January
24, 2017 (the "Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus") omitted certain
material information in connection with the Merger. The
complainant seeks various remedies, including injunctive relief to
prevent the consummation of the Merger unless certain allegedly
material information is disclosed and seeking compensatory and
rescissory damages in the event the Merger is consummated without
such disclosures.

On February 17, 2017, the defendants entered into a stipulation of
settlement with respect to the class action, pursuant to which the
parties have agreed, among other things, that Regency will make
certain supplemental disclosures. The supplemental disclosures
were made by Regency in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by
Regency with the SEC on February 17, 2017. The supplemental
disclosures should be read in conjunction with the Joint Proxy
Statement/Prospectus, which should be read in its entirety.

Regency believes that the class action is without merit and that
no supplemental disclosure is or was required to the Joint Proxy
Statement/Prospectus under any applicable rule, statute,
regulation or law. However, to, among other things, eliminate the
burden, inconvenience, expense, risk and disruption of further
litigation, Regency has determined to provide supplemental
disclosures. Additional information regarding the stipulation of
settlement may be found in the Current Report on Form 8-K as filed
with the SEC on February 17, 2017.

fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, that, "On April 6, 2015, Ming
Huang, a purported shareholder of ours, filed a Class Action
Complaint (Civil Action No. 3:15-02407), alleging violations of
the federal securities laws (the "Complaint") in the United States
District Court for the District of New Jersey (the "District of
New Jersey"), against us and two of our officers, Raymond P.
Dolan, our President and Chief Executive Officer, and Mark T.
Greenquist, our former Chief Financial Officer (collectively, the
"Defendants")."

"On September 21, 2015, in response to motions subsequently filed
with the District of New Jersey by four other purported
shareholders of ours seeking status as lead plaintiff, the
District of New Jersey appointed Richard Sousa as lead plaintiff
(the "Plaintiff"). The Plaintiff claims to represent purchasers of
our common stock during the period from October 23, 2014 to March
24, 2015, and seeks unspecified damages. The principal allegation
contained in the Complaint is that the Defendants made misleading
forward-looking statements concerning our fiscal first quarter of
2015 financial performance.

"On September 22, 2015, we filed a Motion to Transfer (the "Motion
to Transfer") this case to the United States District Court for
the District of Massachusetts. The Plaintiff filed his opposition
to the Motion to Transfer on October 5, 2015, and we filed a reply
to the Motion to Transfer on October 13, 2015.

"On March 21, 2016, the District of New Jersey granted our Motion
to Transfer. Thus, this case will now be litigated in the United
States District Court for the District of Massachusetts (Civil
Action No. 1:16-cv-10657-GAO).

"On May 4, 2016, the Plaintiff filed an amended complaint (the
"Amended Complaint"), which is now the operative complaint in this
litigation. On June 20, 2016, the Company and the other Defendants
filed a Motion to Dismiss the Amended Complaint (the "Motion to
Dismiss") and on July 25, 2016, the Plaintiff filed an opposition
to the Motion to Dismiss.

"We filed our reply to the Plaintiff's opposition to the Motion to
Dismiss on August 15, 2016. A hearing on the Motion to Dismiss was
scheduled for February 28, 2017.

"We believe that the Defendants have meritorious defenses to the
allegations made in the Amended Complaint and do not expect the
results of this suit to have a material adverse effect on our
business or consolidated financial statements."

SPRINT COMMUNICATION: Faces "Motels" JFPA Violations in Conn.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Gorss Motels, Inc., a Connecticut corporation, individually and as
the representative of a class of similarly-situated persons,
Plaintiffs v. Sprint Communication Company L.P., a Foreign Limited
Partnership, et al., Defendants, Case No. 3:17-cv-00546 (D. Conn.,
April 3, 2017) seeks to recover damages and attorneys' fees for
violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA),
as amended by the Junk Fax Prevention Act of 2005 (JFPA).

The complaint says Defendants faxed unsolicited facsimiles to
Plaintiff and at least 40 other recipients or sent the same and
other advertisements by fax without first receiving the
recipients' express invitation or permission and without having an
established business relationship as defined by the TCPA and its
regulations.

The Defendants actions caused damaged to the Plaintiff and the
other class members, the complaint asserts. Receiving the
Defendants' junk faxes caused Plaintiff and the other recipients
to lose paper and toner consumed in the printing of the
Defendants' faxes. Moreover, the Defendants faxes used the
Plaintiff's and the other class members' telephone lines and fax
machine. The Defendants' faxes cost the Plaintiff and the other
class members time, as the Plaintiff and the other class members
and their employees wasted their time receiving, reviewing and
routing the Defendants' unauthorized faxes. That time otherwise
would have been spent on the Plaintiff's and the other class
members' business activities. In addition, the Defendants' faxes
unlawfully interrupted the Plaintiff's and other class members'
privacy interests in being left alone.

Sprint is one of the largest wireless communications companies in
the U.S., as well as a provider of wire line services. [BN]

XEROX CORP: Lead Plaintiff, Counsel Named; Amended Suit Due May 1
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned, Oklahoma Firefighters Pension and
Retirement System v. Xerox Corporation et al., Case No. 1:16-cv-
08260 (S.D.N.Y.), the Hon. Paul A Engelmayer has entered an
Opinion and Order dated Feb. 28, 2017, granting the request of the
Arkansas Public Employees Retirement System to serve as lead
plaintiff(s) and approving APERS' selection of cousel.

The Court denied the Motions to serve as Lead Plaintiff filed by:

     -- the IWA Forest Industry Pension Plan, which also sought
        appointment of Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP as lead
        counsel;

     -- the City of Melbourne Police Officers' Retirement System;
        and

     -- Jim Welton.

The Court appointed Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP as lead
counsel and Labaton Sucharow LLP as liaison counsel.

APERS is directed either to file and serve an amended complaint or
designate the Complaint as the operative complaint in this case
within 60 days of this order -- i.e. May 1, 2017.

Defendants may then respond to the then-operative complaint under
the schedule set forth -- either 60 days after the filing of an
amended complaint, or, if no amended complaint is filed, by June
30, 2017.

Xerox Corporation said in its Form 10-K Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2017, for the
fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, that on October 21, 2016, the
Oklahoma Firefighters Pension and Retirement System ("plaintiff")
filed a purported securities class action complaint against Xerox
Corporation, Ursula Burns, Luca Maestri, Kathryn Mikells, Lynn
Blodgett and Robert Zapfel (collectively, "defendants") in the
U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on
behalf of the plaintiff and certain purchasers or acquirers of
Xerox common stock. The complaint alleges that defendants made
false and misleading statements, in violation of Sections 10(b)
and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act and SEC Rule 10b-5,
relating to the operations and prospects of Xerox's Health
Enterprise business. Plaintiff seeks, among other things,
unspecified monetary damages and attorneys' fees. Other, similar
lawsuits may follow.

On December 28, 2016, the Court entered a stipulated order setting
out a schedule for amendment of the complaint and for defendants'
response to that complaint following the Court's appointment of
lead plaintiff under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act.

Xerox said the Company and the individual defendants will
vigorously defend against this matter.

The Company said, "At this time, it is premature to make any
conclusion regarding the probability of incurring material losses
in this litigation. Should developments cause a change in our
determination as to an unfavorable outcome, or result in a final
adverse judgment or settlement, there could be a material adverse
effect on our results of operations, cash flows and financial
position in the period in which such change in determination,
judgment, or settlement occurs."

Xerox is a global provider of digital print technology and related
solutions.
