Contract and the change orders with defendant 311 W90.

The total agreed price and reasonable value of the work, labor,
and services performed and materials furnished by Excel for
defendants 311 W 90 and Rockridge Group for the Project is
$1,880,541.00. The defendants paid Excel part of the agreed price
and reasonable value, but there remains a balance of $230,161.82
due Excel from defendant 311 W90 on the contract and the change
orders. Excel has demanded payment of the balance due from
defendant 311 W90, but it has failed and refused to pay. Excel has

ALLIANCE MMA: "Shulman" Suit Alleges Securities Law Violations
--------------------------------------------------------------
DARREN SHULMAN, Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, v. ALLIANCE MMA, INC., PAUL K. DANNER,
III, and JOHN PRICE, the Defendants, Case No. 1:17-cv-03282
(S.D.N.Y., May 3, 2017, 2017), seeks to recover compensable
damages caused by Defendants' violations of the federal securities
laws.

The case is a federal securities class action on behalf of a class
consisting of all persons and entities other than Defendants who
purchased or otherwise acquired the publicly traded securities of
Alliance pursuant and/or traceable to the Company's initial public
offering on or about October 6, 2016 (IPO).

Alliance MMA's Registration Statement, including the documents it
incorporated by reference, contained materially untrue and
misleading statements and/or omissions. Defendants negligently
allowed the Prospectus to contain materially untrue and misleading
statements and/or omissions to the extent that they knew or should
have known that the Prospectus was materially misleading, but
failed to act in a reasonable manner to prevent the Prospectus
from containing materially misleading statements and/or preventing
the materially misleading Prospectus from being disseminated.
These claims, brought under Sections 11 and 15 of the Securities
Act, are based solely on claims of strict liability and/or the
absence of any affirmative defense based on the reasonableness of
the pertinent Defendants' investigation into the true facts. These
claims are not based on any allegation of fraud, intentional
wrongdoing, or severe recklessness.

Alliance MMA was formed on February 12, 2015 to acquire companies
in the mixed martial arts ("MMA") industry. The Company aims to
create a highly organized feeder organization to the sport's
highest level of professional competition including The Ultimate
Fighting Championship (UFC), Bellator MMA, World Series of

weeks' worth of work and was instructed not to clock in during
this time. Plaintiff protested but relented by following the
orders of her supervisor. Further, Plaintiff was required to work

required to clock out at 4:00 p.m. and were not compensated for
the additional hour worked. Defendants failed to keep accurate
records of actual hours worked by all employees.

AMERICAN FIRE: Faces "Portugal" Suit over Overtime Wage
-------------------------------------------------------
MANUEL M PORTUGAL and all others similarly situated under
29 U.S.C. 216(b), the Plaintiffs, v. AMERICAN FIRE SPRINKLER
SERVICES, INC., ANISA OWEIS, OMAR OWEIS, the Defendants, Case No.
1:17-cv-21650-RNS (S.D. Fla., May 3, 2017, 2017), alleges that
Defendants have employed approximately 25 other similarly situated
employees like Plaintiff who have not been paid overtime and/or
minimum wages for work performed in excess of 40 hours weekly from
the filing of this complaint back three years.

The Plaintiff worked for Defendants as a fire sprinkler installer
from December 20, 2002 through on or about April 25, 2017.
Between the period of December 20, 2002, through April 25, 2017
Plaintiff worked an average of 60 hours a week for Defendants and
was paid an average of $20.00 per hour but was never paid the
extra half time rate for any hours worked over 40 hours in a week
as required by the Fair Labor Standards Act. Plaintiff therefore
claims the halftime overtime rate for each hour worked above 40 in
a week. Defendants willfully and intentionally refused to pay
Plaintiff's overtime wages as required by the Fair Labor Standards
Act as Defendants knew of the overtime requirements of the Fair
Labor Standards Act and recklessly failed to investigate whether
Defendants' payroll practices were in accordance with the Fair
Labor Standards Act. Defendants remain owing Plaintiff these wages
since the commencement of Plaintiff's employment with Defendants.

American Fire is in the fire sprinkler system installation
business.[BN]

FLURRY LIVE: Padron et al. Sue Over Spam Text Messages
------------------------------------------------------
PHILLIPE PADRON and SHANNON K. MCCARTHY, D.M.D., M.S. CLASS ACTION
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, v.
FLURRY LIVE, INC., a foreign corporation, the Defendant, Case No.
1:17-cv-21658-JEM (S.D. Fla., May 3, 2017, 2017), seeks injunctive
relief to halt Defendant's illegal conduct which has resulted in
the invasion of privacy, harassment, aggravation, and disruption
of the daily life of thousands of individuals nationwide.

The Plaintiffs also seek for statutory damages on behalf of
themselves and members of the class, and any other available legal
or equitable remedies resulting from the illegal actions of
Defendant.

The case is a putative class action under the Telephone Consumer
Protection Act (TCPA). To promote its mobile application,
Defendant engages in deceptive and intrusive telemarketing.
Specifically, Defendant deceives users of its mobile application
into granting it access to their contacts. Once in possession of
users' contact numbers, Defendant, using an automatic telephone
dialing system, and without any notice or warning to its users,
transmits generic telemarketing text messages to the users'
contacts from spoofed telephone numbers.

Defendant transmits its telemarketing texts without first
obtaining the express consent of recipients. Defendant's
violations were knowing and willful. Defendant has received
numerous consumer complaints regarding its spam messages, but
nevertheless continued to intentionally violate the TCPA to
increase its revenue.

FRESENIUS KABI: Shannon Seeks to Enjoin Akorn Inc. Merger
---------------------------------------------------------
ROBERT J. SHANNON, JR., Individually and on Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, and Derivatively on Behalf of AKORN, INC., the
Plaintiff, v. FRESENIUS KABI AG, FRESENIUS SE & CO. KGaA, QUERCUS
ACQUISITION, INC., JOHN N. KAPOOR, KENNETH S. ABRAMOWITZ, ADRIENNE
L. GRAVES, RONALD M. JOHNSON, STEVEN J. MEYER, TERRY A. RAPPUHN,
BRIAN TAMBI and ALAN WEINSTEIN, the Defendants, Case No. 2017-CH-
06322 (Ill. Cir. Ct., May 2, 2017), seeks to enjoin consummation
of a proposed acquisition unless and until the Board of Directors
complies with its duties to maximize shareholder value.

The case is a shareholder class action brought by Plaintiff
individually and on behalf of holders of the common stock of
Akorn, Inc. and derivatively on behalf of Akorn against the
members of the Akorn Board of Directors, Fresenius Kabi AG,
Quercus Acquisition, Inc., and Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA, arising
out of the proposed acquisition of Akorn by Fresenius. In pursuing
the Proposed Acquisition, each defendant has violated applicable
law by directly breaching and/or aiding and abetting the other
defendants' breaches of their fiduciary duties of care, loyalty,
good faith, candor and independence owed to Akorn and its
shareholders.

Although Akorn was experiencing sustained and significant growth,
was far exceeding internal growth forecasts, and was poised to
continue growing well into the future, on April 24,2017, Akorn
announced it had entered into a definitive merger agreement with
Fresenius (Merger Agreement), pursuant to which Fresenius would
acquire Akorn for roughly $4.3 billion. Under the terms of the
Merger Agreement, Akorn shareholders will receive only $34 in cash
for each share of Akorn common stock they hold. To put the merger
price in context, Akorn shares traded higher than $34 per share as
recently as July 27, 2016.

In connection with the Proposed Acquisition, each Akorn Board
member breached a number of his or her fiduciary duties to
plaintiff and the rest of Akorn's common stockholders by among
other things: (i) prioritizing significant personal benefits above
ensuring that shareholders receive maximum value for their shares;
(ii) adopting preclusive deal protection devices that effectively
prevent any alternative bidder from surfacing; and (iii) failing
to conduct an appropriate sales process that protected against
conflicts.

Akorn is a specialty generic pharmaceutical company engaged in the
development, manufacture and marketing of multisource and branded
pharmaceuticals. It has a diversified portfolio of more than 180
generic, branded, OTC and animal health products. Akorn
manufactures ophthalmic, injectable and niche sterile and non-
sterile pharmaceuticals. In 2016, Akorn grew its revenue by 13% to
$1.1 billion and increased its net income by 22% to $184 million.
The Company is headquartered in Lake Forest, Illinois, and is
incorporated under the laws of the state of Louisiana.[BN]

FYRE MEDIA: Chinery et al. Sued Over Bahamas Music Festival
-----------------------------------------------------------
CHELSEA CHINERY, SHANNON MCAULIFFE, and DESIREE D. FLORES,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, the
Plaintiffs, v. FYRE MEDIA, INC., a Delaware, New York and Oregon
Corporation; BILLY MCFARLAND, an individual; JEFFREY ATKINS,
p/k/a/ JA RULE, an individual; MATTE PROJECTS, LLC, a New York
Domestic Limited Liability Company, and DOES 1 through 100,
inclusive, the Defendants, Case No. BC659938 (Cal. Super. Ct., May
2, 2017), seeks to recover damages from Defendants for the use of
unlawful, unfair and fraudulent acts and practices in the
provision of selling tickets and promoting a music festival to
California residents pursuant to California Consumer Legal
Remedies Act.

The Plaintiffs allege that Defendants deliberately and
fraudulently marketed and sold tickets to lavish, tropical
destination music festival. The Defendants' described Fyre
Festival as a "journey and destination, a place where music,
culture, and food combine, igniting our curiosities and our
passions over two weekends on one of the most sought after and
secluded islands in the world." Instead, 15 Plaintiffs endured a
horrific experience on an Island in the Bahamas not suited nor
prepared for an influx of visitors or a music festival of such

HUMAN RESOURCE PROFILE: Lamones Seeks to Certify Class
------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit entitled RALPH LAMONES, JR., individually and as a
representative of the classes, Plaintiff, v. HUMAN RESOURCE
PROFILE, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 8:16-cv-02422-MSS-AAS (M.D.
Fla.), the Plaintiff moves the Court for an order certifying a
class of:

   "all individuals who were the subjects of background reports
   prepared by Defendant in the two years predating the filing of
   the Complaint, continuing through the date the class list is
   prepared, whose reports list charges that antedate the report
   by more than seven years with dispositions of acquitted,
   dismissed, dropped, amended to lesser offenses, nolle prossed,
   set aside, no action, no information filed, stricken off,
   withdrawn, or not guilty".

Excluded from the class are any individuals who submit a timely
and valid opt-out request.

The Plaintiff also moves the Court to appoint Plaintiff as the
class representative for the proposed classes, and Plaintiff's
counsel (Nichols Kaster, PLLP and Morgan & Morgan Complex
Litigation Group) as class counsel.

The Plaintiff seeks to provide the opportunity for class-wide
relief to thousands of other individuals who, like him, were
victims of Defendant's systematic failure to remove stale criminal
charges from its background checks, in violation of the Fair
Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). The FCRA prohibits consumer reporting
agencies (CRAs) from reporting adverse items of information, other
than records of convictions of crimes, that antedate the report by
more than seven years (commonly referred to as "obsolete
information").

HUMANA INC: Certification of Healthcare Coordinators Class Sought
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled DAVID POGGI, on his own behalf and others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. HUMANA, INC., the Defendant,
Case No. 8:17-cv-00433-SCB-MAP (M.D. Fla.), the Plaintiff asks the
Court for an order conditionally certifying a class of:

   "current and former healthcare coordinators who work(ed) at
   Defendant's Florida or nationwide offices between February
   2014 and the present; who worked hours for which they were not
   compensated, in some cases working more than 40 hours per
   week, without lawful and proper and complete overtime
   compensation."

The case is a collective action to enforce the overtime and
minimum wage provisions of Section 7(a) of the Fair Labor
Standards Act (FLSA). Plaintiff worked for Defendant from
approximately January 2012 through to the present. Plaintiff was
employed as a healthcare coordinator, which is a position that
involves Plaintiff and those similarly situated to use telephone
and email to contact clients of Defendant. Plaintiff filed this
lawsuit on behalf of himself and all others similarly-situated
alleging that he and the other flat rate healthcare coordinators
of Defendant's were deprived of proper overtime wages and unpaid
wages by virtue of Defendant requiring Plaintiff and those
similarly situated to him to work but were not paid for all of the
hours worked.

INTEGRITY HOME: Court Conditionally Certified Care Aides Class
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned DANA COOPER, on behalf of herself and all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. INTEGRITY HOME CARE,
INC., the Defendant, Case No. 4:16-cv-01293-DGK (W.D. Mo.), the
Hon. Chief Judge Greg Kays granting in part Plaintiff's motion for
conditional collective action certification, approval of notice,
and expedited consideration.

The Court conditionally certifies the following collective:

   "[a]ll current or former Personal Care Aides and Advanced
   Personal Care Aides who were employed directly by Defendant
   and provided companionship services to elderly persons and
   others, and who were not paid overtime for all hours worked in
   excess of 40 hours per week, at any time from January 1, 2015
   to November 12, 2015. Excluded are any persons who worked as a
   CDS Attendant".

The Plaintiff shall submit a revised notice, email, and follow-up
correspondence within 14 days. Integrity shall provide the full
name, address, e-mail address, dates of employment, and employee
number or unique identifier for each potential collective member
to Plaintiff within 14 days of this order.

The action arises from Plaintiff Dana Cooper's allegations that
Defendant, which provides home healthcare, unlawfully withheld
overtime wages from hourly, non-exempt home healthcare workers in
violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Missouri
Minimum Wage Law (MMWL).

LIBERTY INSURANCE: Bid for Class Certification Partly Granted
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit styled DAVID BOND and REBECCA BOND, individually
and on behalf of others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v.
LIBERTY INSURANCE CORPORTATION, the Defendant, Case No. No. 2:15-
cv-04236-NK (W.D. Mo.), the Hon District Judge Nanette K. Laughrey
entered an order grating Plaintiffs' motion for class
certification of:

Injunctive Relief Subclass:

   "all persons with a dwelling or other structure located in
   the state of Missouri insured by Liberty Insurance Corporation
   under policy Form HO 03 (Edition 04 09) and endorsements at
   the time of class certification"; and

Declaratory Relief Subclass:

   "all persons insured by Liberty Insurance Corporation
   who incurred physical loss or damage to their dwelling or
   other structures located in the state of Missouri from April
   20, 2009 to the date of class certification arising under
   policy Form HO 03 (Edition 04 09) and endorsements".

The Court rejects Liberty's additional arguments that the Bonds'
(b)(2) class would impermissibly lead to "individualized" damages
amounts, resulting in due process or claim preclusion problems.
Again, these arguments are premised on the Wal-Mart Court's
holding that Rule 23(b)(2) "does not authorize class certification
when each class member would be entitled to an individualized
award of monetary damages." 564 U.S. at 361. Liberty's arguments
fail, however, because unlike the putative (b)(2) class in Wal-
Mart, the Bonds' putative (b)(2) class does not seek any monetary
relief. Wal-Mart does not stand for the proposition that (b)(2)
classes violate due process, nor that bifurcated proceedings are
not permitted; instead, Wal-Mart holds that a (b)(2) class cannot
seek individualized monetary damages.  As already discussed, the
Court bifurcated the Bonds' case into a (b)(2) liability phase and
(b)(3) damages phase, permissibly "insulating" the monetary
damages from the (b)(2) class.  See Ebert v. General Mills, Inc.,
823 F.3d 472, 480 (8th Cir. 2016); Newberg on Class Actions
section 4:38 ("Certification of a hybrid action insulates the
(b)(2) class piece from the money damage portion of the case,
hence complying with Wal-Mart's admonition against adjudicating
individual damage claims in a (b)(2) class action"). As a result,
this hybrid certification approach complies with Wal-Mart's
prohibition of (b)(2) classes in which individualized monetary
damages will be awarded.

2017, 2017), seeks to recover unpaid wages and overtime wages

The Defendant allegedly failed to include the "per diem" and
"safety bonuses" in the calculation of the "regular rates" and
"overtime rates" of Plaintiff Pritt, Plaintiff Spencer, and all
similarly situated employees. Because Defendant failed to include
the "per diem" and "safety bonuses" in the calculation of the

Plaintiff Pritt, Plaintiff Spencer, and all similarly situated
employees all wages and overtime wages due and owing to Plaintiff
Pritt, Plaintiff Spencer, and the similarly situated employees in

MLTD INC: Faces "Caballero" Wage and Hour Class Suit
----------------------------------------------------
Joseph Jun Caballero, Individually and on behalf of all others
similarly-situated, the Plaintiff, v. MLTD, Inc., a California
Corporation; Ori Kainen, an Individual; and Does 1 through 25,
Inclusive, the Defendants, Case No. BC659936 (Cal. Super. Ct., May
2, 2017), arises out of Defendants' failure to follow numerous
provisions of the state Labor Code and the applicable Wage Order
as it relates to Class Members. From August 30, 2014 until
December 18, 2016, Defendants employed Plaintiff as an hourly,
non-exempt Warehouse Associate.  The Defendants failed to pay
Class Members all of their earned wages, in violation of Labor
Code and Wage Order. Defendants' time records reflect more hours
worked than the wage statements and wages provided to Class
Members for the exact same pay periods. In other words, a time
record might reflect 85 hours worked while the wage statement for
the same pay period would show wages paid for only 80 hours
worked. Very often, Class Members that were not provided the
opportunity to take a full thirty minute meal period, only to have
their hours reduced to reflect a thirty minute meal period that
was never taken. Similarly, Class Members were required to clock
out for rest room breaks. Class Members also were not compensated
for half of their usual or scheduled shifts for days where they
showed up to work but were asked to go home before working half of
their shift, in violation of Wage Order

Defendants employed Class Members for more than eight hours per
day and more than forty hours per workweek and failed to pay Class
Members overtime compensation for the overtime hours Class Members
worked, in violation of Labor Code and Wage. Class Members were
paid straight hourly rates for the overtime hours they worked,
instead of being paid 1.5 times their hourly rate for those hours.
Class Members worked overtime hours off-the-clock and were not
compensated at all for these hours worked. Defendants failed to
pay Class Members state minimum wage, including overtime
compensation at the minimum wage rate, in violation of Labor Code
and Wage Order.

The Defendant sells clothing and accessories online at

shelves and manage inventory for the company at a warehouse in

Johnny Hick Strickland, the Plaintiff, v. Monsanto Company, the
Defendant, Case No. 7:17-cv-00088-D (E.D.N.C., May 2, 2017), seeks

MOSS MANAGEMENT: Faces "Townsend" Wage-and-Hour Suit
----------------------------------------------------
ROCHELLE TOWNSEND, individually as an aggrieved employee and on
behalf of others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. MOSS
MANAGEMENT SERVICES, INC.; and DOES 1 through 5, inclusive, the
Defendant, Case No. BC660016 (Cal. Super. Ct., May 2, 2017), seeks
to recover damages, unpaid wages and associated penalties under
the state Labor Code.

The Plaintiff was hired by Moss in January 2010 as a property
manager and her employment ended on or about June 9,2016. The
Plaintiff and the class members were classified as a non-exempt
employee and paid an hourly rate of pay. The Plaintiff and the
class members were required to work in excess of eight hours in a
day and/or forty hours in a week, but Moss did not pay them for
all hours worked or overtime premium wages.

Moss had a practice of instructing employees, including Plaintiff
and the class members, not to record any hours on their time
sheets in excess of seven hours per day regardless of the amount
of hours actually worked in a given day. In addition, Moss had a
practice of collecting the employees' time sheets on Thursdays
with the time already recorded for future work. For example,
Plaintiff and the class members would turn in her time sheets on
Thursday morning and/or afternoon with the time already recorded
for Thursday and Friday.

Moss is a residential and commercial property management company.

NEW YORK: Accused of Overstating Taxi Medallions' Value
-------------------------------------------------------
DALER SINGH, DBA GILZIAN ENTERPRISE LLC, individually and on
behalf of all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v.
THE CITY OF NEW YORK and THE NEW YORK CITY TAXI AND LIMOUSINE
COMMISSION, the Defendants, Case No. 701402/2017 (N.Y. Sup. Ct.,
May 2, 2017), seeks to recover tens of millions of dollars in
damages as a result of Defendants' breach of contract, fraudulent
inducement, negligent misrepresentation, and violation of the
General Business Law, as well as violations of the NYC Code, state
law and TLC rules.

In early 2014, the Plaintiff purchased a New York City taxi
medallion directly from the City of New York in an auction
organized and promoted by the New York City Taxi and Limousine
Commission (TLC). Before the auction, the TLC intentionally
overstated the value of taxi medallions and hid the fact that the
value of those medallions had already begun to decline due to
factors known to the TLC but not disclosed to Plaintiff or the
rest of the New York City taxi industry. After the auction, the
TLC, through its actions and its inaction, significantly
undermined the value of the medallions it had just sold to
Plaintiff and all other purchasers of medallions at the auction,
causing them substantial economic harm.

New York City comprises 5 boroughs sitting where the Hudson River
meets the Atlantic Ocean. At its core is Manhattan, a densely
populated borough that's among the world's major commercial,
financial and cultural centers.[BN]

PHELAN & HALLINAN: Certification of Unknown Tenant Class Sought
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned KELLY BORG, the Plaintiff, v. PHELAN,
HALLINAN, DIAMOND & JONES, PLLC, the Defendant, Case No. 8:16-cv-
02070-VMC-TGW (M.D. Fla.), the Plaintiff moves the Court to
certify a Florida "Unknown Tenant" Charge Class:

   "all persons in Florida during the 12 months preceding the
   filing of this lawsuit in which Defendant filed a foreclosure
   action seeking to collect on charges against borrowers for
   serving process against "unknown tenants".

The Plaintiff has opted to voluntarily forego the remaining
classes she sought to have certified, instead focusing exclusively
on the above named Florida "Unknown Tenant" Charge Class.

The Plaintiff is suing Defendant for FDCPA violations because
Defendant pads its foreclosure lawsuits with illegal fees by
serving "Unknown Tenants" and then, with the assistance of the
loan servicer, charges the borrower for these fictitious services.
Each service on these "Unknown Tenants" is $45.00. During the
corporate representative deposition, Defendant admitted that it
filed over 2,000 foreclosure lawsuits in Florida alone and in
every single case filed it assessed these dubious and unwarranted
charges. More precisely, according to its interrogatory responses.

PIOLA PROPERTY: Faces "Jorge" Suit Over Breach of Contract
----------------------------------------------------------
LAWRENCE JORGE, the Plaintiff, v. PIOLA PROPERTY MANAGEMENT LLC,
and CHRISTIAN MANTUANO, the Defendant, Case No. 603127/2017 (N.Y.
Sup. Ct. May 2, 2017), seeks to recover damages caused in the
breach of contract and diversion of trust assets by Mantuano.

The action deals with trust assets pertaining to improvement of
real property located at 1 Henry Street, Bethpage, New York, and
this action is properly venued in Nassau County.

The Plaintiff on his own behalf and on behalf of all others in the
class of Lien Law Trust Beneficiaries of a Trust to share in the
funds, alleges that Mantuano has knowingly diverted trust funds
for the subject job for purposes other than permissible
applications to the subject work.

On April 23, 2015, the Plaintiff entered into a contract with
Piola for the construction of a one family home upon the Premises.
The total price provided for in the contract was $400,000.00. The
contract, by its terms, provided that after the downpayment, that
installment payments would be coordinated with bank inspections.
As the work progressed, the Plaintiff made some of the payments to
Piola with his own funds. As the work progressed. Plaintiff drew
against a fine of credit taken out
Citizens Financial Group, which was secured by a mortgage upon the
Premises. These funds were paid by the Plaintiff to Piola. While
Plaintiff had made certain changes as the work progressed, the
amount billed by Piola far exceeded the reasonable cost of any
such changes. Plaintiff had also furnished and installed some of
the work at his own expense, and Piola consistently refused to
give him full and fair credit for the materials he had furnished
and the work which was done at Plaintiff s sole cost and expense.

After the commencement of the within action, die Contractor filed
a verified mechanic's lien upon the subject premises alleging that
the agreed price and the value of labor performed and the value of
materials furnished was $443,069. The Plaintiff disputes that any
money is owed to the Contractor, specifically disputes the $43,069
in extras which the Contractor claims to be due, and alleges that
he is entitled to judgment against the Contractor for a sum in
excess of the monetary jurisdictional limits of all other courts
which would otherwise have subject matter jurisdiction.

Since the mechanic's lien alleges that the unpaid amount for labor
performed and material furnished was $134,869, the Contractor
implicitly acknowledges payment of $308,200. The Bank made
periodic inspections of the work being done upon the
Premises, and generated reports reflecting the percentage of
substantial completion of the work which had been reached.

As the work on the Premises progressed, Piola continued to insist
on payments which far exceeded the percentage of completion
reflected by the inspections done by the Bank.[BN]

Q.E.D. ENVIRONMENTAL: FLSA Class Certification Partly Granted
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit entitled TERRILL JOHNSON, the Plaintiff, v. Q.E.D.
ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEMS INC., the Defendant, Case No. 3:16-cv-01454-
WHO (N.D. Cal.), the Hon. District Judge William H. Orrick entered
an order:

   1. granting QED's motion to deny class certification;

   2. granting in part Plaintiffs' motion for conditional
      certification pursuant to Fair Labor Standards Act with
      regard to production line workers in San Leandro from the
      period of March 31, 2014 - August 22, 2014, and denying
      with regard to all other employees and time periods; and

   3. denying QED's motion for sanctions.

A case management conference is set for May 23, 2017 at 2:00 p.m.
The parties shall file a joint case management statement by May
16, that proposes a schedule for this case through trial.

Judge Orrick said, "QED has identified many weaknesses in
plaintiffs' case and the way it has been litigated. But the
evidence shows that plaintiffs' counsel communicated with Johnson
and obtained and reviewed all of the documents he had that dealt
with his employment at QED, with the exception of a notebook that
Johnson had left at his mother's house and which was accidentally
destroyed Based on Johnson's statements that QED had an auto-
deduct policy, that it had 22 employees at the San Leandro
facility and had other facilities, and that his supervisor
encouraged him and his coworkers to miss meal breaks, it was not
unreasonable for plaintiffs' counsel to believe they could succeed
on their class action and FLSA claims. Further, without having the
California Addendum, it was reasonable for plaintiffs' counsel to
believe and assert that QED had a facially non-compliant meal
break policy. "An attorney may not be sanctioned for a complaint
that is not well-founded, so long as she conducted a reasonable
inquiry." In re Keegan Mgm't Co., Securities Litig., 78 F.3d 431,
434 (9th Cir. 1996. I might feel differently about awarding
sanctions if QED had clean hands. But it stonewalled the 30(b)(6)
deposition that would verify the lack of numerosity until I
ordered it to produce a person most knowledgeable. When a
defendant has the information to defeat class certification and
refuses to provide it absent court order, it does not deserve to
benefit from its adversaries' failures. Rule 11 sanctions are not
appropriate here".

RALPHS GROCERY: Levin Sues over Inflated Price of Plastic Bags
--------------------------------------------------------------
BENZION LEVIN, an individual, on his own behalf and on behalf of
all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. RALPHS GROCERY
COMPANY, INC. an Ohio Corporation, and DOES 1-100, inclusive, the
Defendant, Case No. BC659778 (Cal. Super. Ct., May 1, 2017),
contends that Ralphs, a supermarket chain with over 300 stores in
the state of California, has used California's ban on single-use
plastic bags to unfairly profit off of consumers. Ralphs
surreptitiously charges an inflated price for plastic bags. Signs
displayed near the point-of-sale in Ralphs stores advertise the
price of reusable plastic bags as 10 cents per bag, when in fact,
Ralphs charges 15 cents for these bags. As a result, Plaintiffs
and members of the class who purchased plastic bags have been
overcharged. Defendants' conduct constitutes false advertising and
violates the California Unfair Competition Law, the California
Consumer Legal Remedies Act, the California False Advertising Law.
Plaintiff brings this action on behalf of himself and a class of
purchasers to stop Defendants' from misrepresenting the price of
plastic bags and to refund the monies overcharged.[BN]

RFUTURE CORP: Placeholder Motion for Class Certification Filed
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the lawsuit captioned ABLE HOME HEALTH, LLC, on behalf of
plaintiff and the class members, the Plaintiff, v. RFUTURE CORP.,
and JOHN DOES 1-10, the Defendants, Case No. 1:17-cv-02627 (N.D.
Ill.), the Plaintiff ask the Court for an order determining that
the action may proceed as a class action against Defendant.

The Plaintiff defines the classes as follows:

For purposes of Count I, alleging violation of the Telephone
Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. section 227:

   "(a) all persons with fax numbers (b) who, on or after a date
   four years prior to the filing of this action (28 U.S.C.
   section 1658), (c) were sent faxes by or on behalf of
   defendant RFuture Corp., promoting its goods or services for
   sale (d) with respect to which defendant RFuture Corp. does
   not have evidence of consent or an established business
   relationship prior to sending the fax".

For purposes of Count II, alleging violation of the Illinois
Consumer Fraud Act, 815 ILCS 505/2:

   "(a) all persons with Illinois fax numbers (b) who, on or
   after a date three years prior to the filing of this action,
   (c) were sent faxes by or on behalf of defendant RFuture
   Corp., promoting its goods or services for sale (d) with
   respect to which defendant RFuture Corp. does not have
   evidence of consent or an established business relationship
   prior to sending the fax.

For purposes of Count III, alleging conversion, and Count IV,
alleging trespass to chattels:

   "(a) all persons with Illinois fax numbers (b) who, on or
   after a date five years prior to the filing of this action,
   (c) were sent faxes by or on behalf of defendant RFuture
   Corp., promoting its goods or services for sale (d) with
   respect to which defendant RFuture Corp. does not have
   evidence of consent or an established business relationship
   prior to sending the fax".

The Plaintiff further asks the Court that it be appointed class
representative and that Edelman, Combs, Latturner & Goodwin, LLC
be appointed counsel for the class.

To avoid the risk of a defendant mooting a putative class
representative's individual stake in the litigation, the Seventh
Circuit in Damasco instructed plaintiffs to file a certification
motion with the complaint, along with a motion to stay briefing on
the certification motion until discovery could commence. Damasco
v. Clearwire Corp., 662 F.3d 891 (7th Cir. 2011), overruled,
Chapman v. First Index, Inc., 796 F.3d 783, 787 (7th Cir. 2015).

As this motion to certify a class is a placeholder motion as
described in Damasco, the parties and the Court should not be
burdened with unnecessary paperwork and the resulting expense when
a one paragraph, single page motion to certify and stay should
suffice until an amended motion is filed, the Plaintiffs contend.

SABATINO TRUFFLES: Olive Oil Lacks Truffle, "Quiroz" Suit Says
--------------------------------------------------------------
PATRICK QUIROZ, DOMINIQUE MIRZA, and LOUISE CRESPO, on behalf of
themselves and all others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v.
SABATINO TRUFFLES NEW YORK, LLC and SABATINO NORTH AMERICA, LLC,
the Defendants, Case No. 8:17-cv-00783 (C.D. Cal., May 3, 2017,
2017), seeks to recover damages against Defendants for breach of
the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, breaches of express and implied
warranty, unjust enrichment, negligent misrepresentation, fraud,
and violations of New York, Pennsylvania, and California's false
advertising and consumer protection laws.

The case is a class action against Sabatino Truffles New York, LLC
and Sabatino North America, LLC, for the false, misleading, and
deceptive misbranding of their Sabatino White Truffle Infused
Olive Oil and Sabatino Black Truffle Infused Olive Oil sold to
consumers. Sabatino markets their truffle oil as being infused
with actual "White Truffle[s]" or "Black Truffle[s],"
respectively. But Sabatino Truffle Oil is nothing of the sort;
instead of flavoring its oil with actual "White Truffle[s]" or
"Black Truffle[s]," Defendants' Products are flavored with an
industrially produced, chemically-derived perfume known as
"2,4-dithiapentane." Despite the absence of actual "White Truffle"
or "Black Truffle," Sabatino Truffle Oil is sold at a substantial
price premium over olive oil not infused with real truffles.

2,4-Dithiapentane, also known as "formaldehyde dimethyl
mercaptal," is synthetically prepared by the acid-catalyzed
addition of methyl mercaptan to formaldehyde. Although it emulates
the taste and smell of truffles, it is not truffle.

Sabatino's misbranding is intentional. The front label and
packaging of Sabatino Truffle Oil represents in extra-large, bold
lettering that the product is infused with "White Truffle" and
"Black Truffle," respectively. The mislabeling of Sabatino Truffle
Oil renders the product completely worthless. By mislabeling its
products, Sabatino dupes consumers into purchasing something that
is not truffle oil. Nevertheless, Sabatino Truffle Oil is labeled
and sold as premium truffle oil, and it commands a significant
price premium over other olive
oil products. For example, Sabatino Truffle Oil commands a 934% -
990% price premium, per fluid ounce, over a competing olive oil
brand.

The Defendant is an importer of gourmet truffle oils and other
Italian delicacies. It markets and sells these oils widely
throughout the United States.[BN]

SEPTA: Rejects Job Applicants with Criminal Records, Suit Claims
----------------------------------------------------------------
FRANK LONG, JOSEPH SHIPLEY, MICHAEL WHITE, individually and on
behalf of all others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, v.
SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY, the Defendant,
Case No. 170500784 (Court of Common Pleas Philadelphia County, May
3, 2017, 2017), seeks injunctive and declaratory relief; actual,
real and/or statutory damages; exemplary and
punitive damages; pre-judgment and post-judgment interest; and
reasonable attorneys' fees, costs against SEPTA for willful
violation of Pennsylvania's Criminal History Record
Information Act (CHRIA).

SEPTA, one of Philadelphia's largest employers, rejects job
applicants with criminal records even where the criminal history
of the applicant does not have a relationship to their suitability
for the job. SEPTA's overbroad and illegal policies and practices
in screening job applicants with criminal records include an
explicit policy (SEPTA Policy No. E20) barring individuals with
any felony or misdemeanor drug related convictions from employment
in "[a]ll positions which
require the operation of a SEPTA vehicles [sic]" or "positions
requiring the maintenance, repair or operation of power
facilities, substations, towers, signals, vehicles or rolling
stock." This wholesale ban is unlawful under
CHRIA, which permits employers to consider convictions "only to
the extent to which they relate to the applicant's suitability for
employment in the position for which he [or she] has applied."

The Plaintiffs, who each have old minor drug convictions and who
were summarily denied employment based on SEPTA's policy, bring
this case on their own behalf and that of a proposed class of all
others similarly situated.[BN]

SPECTRUM SOFTWARE: Health Care Sys. Sues Over Spam Advertisements
-----------------------------------------------------------------
COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH CARE SYSTEMS OF THE PALM BEACHES, INC., a
Florida corporation, individually and as the representative of a
class of similarly-situated persons, the Plaintiff, v. SPECTRUM
SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS, INC., the Defendant, Case No. 9:17-cv-80559-
DMM (S.D. Fla., May 3, 2017, 2017), seeks statutory damages,
trebling of statutory damages if the Court determines Defendant's
violations were knowing or willful, injunctive relief,
compensation and attorney fees, and all other relief the Court
deems appropriate under the circumstances.

The Defendant has sent advertisements by facsimile in violation of
the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the regulations the
Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The Defendant sent
Plaintiff at least one advertisement by facsimile and in violation
of the TCPA. The Plaintiff did not expressly consent to receive
Defendant's advertisements by fax and does not have an established
business relationship with Defendant.

The Plaintiff brought this action against Defendant on behalf of a
class of all persons or entities that Defendant sent one or more
telephone facsimile messages (faxes) about goods, products, or
services available for purchase from Spectrum.

The Defendant's unsolicited advertisements damaged Plaintiff and
the other class members. Unsolicited faxes tie up the telephone
lines, prevent fax machines from receiving authorized faxes,
prevent their use for authorized outgoing faxes, cause undue wear
and tear on the recipients' fax machines, and require additional
labor to attempt to discern the source and purpose of the
unsolicited message. The recipient of a "junk" fax loses the use
of its fax machine, and many lose their paper and ink toner in
printing the fax. Such an unsolicited fax interrupts the
recipient's privacy. A junk fax wastes the recipient's valuable
time that would have been spent on something else.

Spectrum is a for-profit medical office management and electronic
health record software provider and medical transcription service
company.[BN]

TRANSWORLD SYSTEMS: Faces Fagen et al. Wage-and-Hour Suit
---------------------------------------------------------
A class action lawsuit has been filed against Transworld Systems,
Inc. The case is titled as JEFFREY FAGEN, JEFFREY ELLIS, and
RICHARD O'ROURKE, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, v. TRANSWORLD SYSTEMS, INC.
the Defendant, Case No. BCG60039 (Cal. Super. Ct., May 2, 2017),
seeks to recover damages for failure of Defendant to reimburse for
work-related expenditures, failure to pay overtime wages, and
failure to pay minimum wages under California Labor Code.

The Plaintiffs and other similarly situated employees are
individuals who have been hired by Transworld as "Sales
Representatives" and "Sales Managers" (collectively, "Sales
Personnel") and worked in California to sell Transworld's debt
collection services. Transworld misclassifies its Sales Personnel
independent contractors despite its right to control numerous
aspects of their work and despite the fact that Sales Personnel
are an essential part of Transworld's business.

As a result of Transworld's misclassification of Sales Personnel
as independent contractors, in violation of Cal. Lab. Code,
Transworld does not reimburse its Sales Personnel for necessary
and reasonable business related expenses, including, but not
limited to, costs incurred for travel, cellular phone usage,
internet usage, office supplies, and purchase of sales kits and
other promotional materials, in violation of state law (Count I).

Transworld also fails to pay its Sales Personnel overtime premium
pay for hours worked in excess of eight per day and 40 per week,
in violation of California law (Count II). Additionally, during
pay periods in which Sales Personnel's commissions are too low,
Transworld fails to pay its Sales Personnel minimum wage in
violation of California law (Count III).

Transworld also willfully fails to provide its Sales Personnel
with accurate, itemized wage statements (Count IV).

Transworld's violations of California law are unlawful business
practices under the California Business & Professions Code (Count
V). Finally, Transworld's violations of the California Labor Code,
as described above and further herein, subjects Transworld to
penalties under the Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act of
2004 (Count VI).

Transworld Systems is a national debt collection company.[BN]

UNION TURNPIKE: Takhalov Seeks Unpaid Wages Under Labor Code
------------------------------------------------------------
EDEN TAKHALOV, on behalf of themselves and others similarly

ISACHAROV; BEN ISACHAROV; or any other related entities or

May 2, 2017), seeks to recover compensation, including gratuities
and unpaid wages, that they were deprived of, plus interest,
attorneys' fees, and costs under New York Labor Law (NYLL).

The Plaintiff asserts allegations pursuant to New York State
Executive Law, New York City Human Rights Law, and the Labor Law
for sexual harassment, hostile work environment, and retaliation.

Beginning in approximately January 2011 and continuing through the
present, Defendants have engaged in a policy and practice of
improperly withholding wages from its employees, and unlawfully
retaining employees' gratuities. The Defendants have also engaged

WORLDVENTURES HOLDINGS: Yiru Sues over Alleges Pyramid Scheme
-------------------------------------------------------------
MELODY YIRU, aka SHI YIRU, an individual and all those similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. WORLDVENTURES HOLDINGS, LLC, a Nevada
Limited Liability Company; WORLD VENTURES, a Nevada Limited
Liability Company; WORLDVENTURES FOUNDATION, a Texas corporation;
WORLDVENTURES MARKET LLC, a Nevada Limited Liability Company,
Michael Azcue, an individual; WAYNE NUGENT, an individual; and
DOES 1-100, the Defendants, Case No BC659422. (Cal. Super. Ct.,
May 1, 2017), seeks a judicial order directing Defendants to cease
and desist all false advertising related to the Defendants'
illegal endless chain scheme, and such other injunctive relief as
the Court finds just and appropriate.

WorldVentures represented to Plaintiff Melody Yiru that she would
make a fortune. Plaintiff and members of the interim class all
joined WorldVentures and became "representatives." However,
Plaintiff did not make money as promised. As with the case of the
more than two hundred fifty thousand WorldVentures representatives
before and after her, Plaintiff failed. Plaintiff and the interim
class failed even though they were committed and put in the time
and effort. They failed because they were doomed from the start by
a WorldVentures marketing plan that systematically rewards
recruiting representatives over sales of travel packages, and
WorldVentures is nothing more than a site that compiles travel
package plans from the website (often at prices significantly in
excess of what a consumer can obtain from Expedia or Travelocity).
About 99.7% of WorldVenture representatives average net losses of
over $1,000 per year, and gross revenues of $140.00. No persons,
except directors and secretly placed individuals into the
"representative" tiers of the company, make any money. The
Defendants run an illegal pyramid scheme. Defendants have been
banned from operating in Norway based on the Court system there
finding that WorldVentures operated an illegal pyramid scheme.
Defendants take money in return for the right to sell travel
membership services and rewards for recruiting other participants
into the pyramid.[BN]
