AKORN INC: Faces "Berg" Securities Suit Over Sale to Fresenius
---------------------------------------------------------------
ROBERT BERG, Individually and On Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, Plaintiff, v. AKORN, INC., JOHN N. KAPOOR, KENNETH S.
ABRAMOWITZ, ADRIENNE L. GRAVES, RONALD M. JOHNSON, STEVEN J.
MEYER, TERRY A. RAPPUHN, BRIAN TAMBI, ALAN WEINSTEIN, RAJ RAI,
FRESENIUS KABI AG, and QUERCUS ACQUISITION, INC., Defendants, Case
No. 3:17-cv-00350-BAJ-RLB (M.D. La., June 2, 2017), alleges that
Defendants issued a Proxy Statement relating to the acquisition of
Akorn, Inc. by Fresenius Kabi AG through Parent's wholly-owned
subsidiary, Quercus Acquisition, Inc. that omits material
information, rendering the Proxy Statement false and misleading in
violation of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Act.

Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Fresenius will
acquire all of the outstanding shares of Akorn common stock for
$34.00 per share in cash.

However, the Proxy Statement omits material information regarding
the Company's financial projections and the analyses performed by
the Company's financial advisor, J.P. Morgan, in support of its
so-called fairness opinion, says the complaint. It adds that the
Proxy Statement omits material information regarding (i) potential
conflicts of interest of the Company's officers and directors,
(ii) potential conflicts of interest of J.P. Morgan, (iii) and the
background of the Proposed Transaction.

For example, the complaint relates, the Proxy Statement fails to
disclose whether any potential bidders other than Fresenius
entered into a "clean team confidentiality agreement" with Akorn,
and Akorn's basis for entering into such agreement with Fresenius.

Akorn is a specialty generic pharmaceutical company that develops,
manufactures, and markets generic and branded prescription
pharmaceuticals and branded as well as private-label over-the-
counter consumer health products and animal health
pharmaceuticals.[BN]

ALLSCRIPTS HEALTHCARE: Possible Perjury by Plaintiff, Judge Says
----------------------------------------------------------------
Diana Novak Jones, writing for Law360, reported that an Illinois
federal magistrate judge had harsh words June 2 for attorneys in a
$200 million Telephone Consumer Protection Act case against
Allscripts, writing in a lengthy order denying class certification
that the suing clinic and its attorneys may have committed perjury
during discovery.

Named plaintiff Physicians Healthsource Inc. had moved to certify
two classes of junk fax recipients, but U.S. Magistrate Judge
Jeffrey Cole criticized the medical practice and its attorneys for
their purportedly false answers to interrogatories from Allscripts
Healthcare Solutions Inc., the health records and supplies company
being targeted by the suit.

Physicians Healthsource is essentially a "professional litigant in
junk fax cases," Judge Cole wrote, citing the practice's lawsuits
against at least 18 different companies over junk faxes. All of
those suits were filed with Anderson + Wanca, which is among the
law firms asking to be named class counsel in the Allscripts case,
he noted.

Physicians Healthsource "is not a newcomer to the process (far
from it) and cannot possess so cavalier an attitude to its
responsibilities in litigation -- responsibilities which lie at
the core of our system of truth-seeking," Judge Cole said.

He also criticized the firms seeking to represent the class --
Anderson + Wanca, Bock Hatch Lewis & Oppenheim LLC, and Montgomery
Rennie & Jonson LPA -- for allowing client and Physicians
Healthsource employee Dr. John Ruch to give answers to questions
about whether the practice was a customer of Allscripts that
contradicted the clinic's answers in the interrogatories.

"If the lawyers had knowledge of the truth from the beginning,
they cannot be class counsel," Judge Cole wrote. "And if they
didn't know and didn't bother to talk to Dr. Ruch before the
[interrogatory] answers were filed, they simply cannot be counted
on to be an adequate class counsel."

The faxes at issue allegedly advertised free cookies and beach
towels with the purchase of office supplies, among other things.
The suit says the faxes went out to more than 150,000 people.

While the class certification denial cuts off the medical
practice's shot at a potential $200 million liability, Judge Cole
left the door open to Physicians Healthsource moving forward
alone.

In another strongly worded opinion issued on June 2, Judge Cole
rejected Allscripts' motion for summary judgment, saying the
company failed to prove it had sent the faxes with Physicians
Healthsource's permission.  Their motion "begins weakly and
finishes worse," Judge Cole said, noting that despite the issues
Physicians Healthsource had with responding to the question of
whether it was a customer of Allscripts, Allscripts chose to
assume the practice was not.

Allscripts had argued that Physicians Healthsource made its fax
number public and thus consented to receiving all faxes. But that
argument works under the TCPA only when there is an established
business relationship, which Allscripts has already said there was
not, Judge Cole said.

He also knocked down Allscripts' efforts to use a fax policy the
clinic posted in its office as evidence the practice consented to
receive the faxes. The policy, which says employees may give out
the fax number only to specific callers, must be accompanied by a
business relationship for it to count as permission, Judge Cole
said.

Plus, Allscripts quoted only a piece of the policy in court
filings, he said, leaving out the part that said the number could
be given out only to callers from a set of specific categories,
none of which would have included Allscripts.

In his rulings, Judge Cole took significant space to express his
bewilderment at the concept of junk faxes, the suits that
accompany them under the TCPA, and the dispute between Allscripts
and Physicians Healthsource as a whole.

The Allscripts case stems from a separate junk fax case against
the company that settled in 2012, earning plaintiffs counsel more
than $600,000 in fees, Judge Cole said. Physicians Healthsource
claims that Allscripts withheld more than 30 of its junk faxes in
discovery in that case, but rather than seeking some sort of
disciplinary action against Allscripts, the practice filed this
new suit over those specific faxes, he said.

"From the plaintiff's business perspective, all this is about two
or three dozen faxes sent over the course of three and a half
years -- meaning the plaintiff's fax machine, if there was one,
didn't even 'whir' at an average of once a month," he wrote.

But the liability attached to those 30-some faxes was significant,
in part because Allscripts did not stop sending them, Judge Cole
said.

"One might think a business that had just agreed to pay well over
a half million dollars in legal fees, over and above monetary
damages, would adjust its marketing strategy a bit," he said. "Or,
at the very least, stop sending faxes to what might be one of the
more litigious businesses, in terms of junk fax litigation, in the
country."

                           *     *     *

Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5, 2017,
for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2017, that, "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. Plaintiff
submitted its reply memorandum in support of its motion for class
certification and its opposition to our motion for summary
judgment on July 14, 2016 and July 21, 2016, respectively.

("IT") solutions and services to help healthcare organizations

AMEREN CORPORATION: 2018 Trial in Municipal Taxes Class Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
Ameren Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5, 2017, for the
quarterly period ended March 31, 2017, that a 2018 trial has been
set in the class action lawsuit related to Ameren Missouri
municipal taxes.

The cities of Creve Coeur and Winchester, Missouri, on behalf of
themselves and other municipalities in Ameren Missouri's service
area, filed a class action lawsuit in 2011 against Ameren Missouri
in the Circuit Court of St. Louis County, Missouri. The lawsuit
alleges that Ameren Missouri failed to collect and pay gross
receipts taxes or license fees on certain revenues, including
revenues from wholesale power and interchange sales. Ameren and
Ameren Missouri recorded immaterial liabilities on their
respective balance sheets as of March 31, 2017, and December 31,
2016, representing their estimate of the probable loss due as a
result of this lawsuit.

Ameren and Ameren Missouri believe there is a remote possibility
that a liability relating to this lawsuit could be material to
Ameren's and Ameren Missouri's results of operations, financial
position, and liquidity. Ameren Missouri believes its defenses are
meritorious and is defending itself vigorously. However, there can
be no assurances that Ameren Missouri will be successful in its
efforts. A 2018 trial has been set and an order is expected later
that year.

Ameren, headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, is a public utility
holding company under PUHCA 2005.


APLINGTON KAUFMAN: Nay's Protective-Certification Bid Continued
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois
granted the Plaintiffs' motion to continue the protective-
certification motion filed in the lawsuit entitled Kimberly L.
Nay, et al. v. Aplington, Kaufman, McClintock, Steele & Barry,
Ltd., et al., Case No. 1:17-cv-04028 (N.D. Ill.).

BANK OF THE OZARKS: Parties Agree in Non-Binding Mediation
----------------------------------------------------------
Bank of the Ozarks, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5, 2017, for the
quarterly period ended March 31, 2017, that the parties in a class
action lawsuit are now engaged in pre-trial discovery and have
agreed to participate in non-binding mediation regarding the
plaintiff's claims.

On December 19, 2011, the Company and Bank were named as
defendants in a purported class action lawsuit filed in the
Circuit Court of Lonoke County, Arkansas, Division III, styled
Robert Walker, Ann B. Hines and Judith Belk vs. Bank of the
Ozarks, Inc. and Bank of the Ozarks. On December 20, 2012, the
Bank was named as a defendant in a purported class action lawsuit
filed in the Circuit Court of Pulaski County, Arkansas, Ninth
Division, styled Audrey Muzingo v. Bank of the Ozarks.

Subsequently, counsel for the plaintiffs in the Walker case and
counsel for the plaintiff in the Muzingo case have reached an
agreement whereby Ms. Muzingo is now considered a member of the
class in the Walker case.  The complaint challenges the manner in
which overdraft fees were charged and the policies related to the
posting order of payments.  In addition, the complaint alleges
violations of the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.  The
complaint seeks to have the case certified by the court as a class
action for all Bank account holders located in the State of
Arkansas similarly situated, and seeks (1) a declaratory judgment
as to the wrongful nature of the Bank's overdraft fee policies,
(2) restitution of overdraft fees paid by the plaintiffs and the
putative class as a result of the actions cited in the complaint,
(3) disgorgement of profits as a result of the alleged wrongful
actions, (4) unspecified compensatory and statutory or punitive
damages, and (5) pre-judgment interest, costs, and plaintiffs'
attorneys' fees.

The Company and the Bank filed a motion to dismiss and to compel
arbitration pursuant to the terms of the consumer deposit account
agreement, which was denied by the trial court.  The Company and
the Bank appealed the trial court's ruling to the Arkansas Supreme
Court on an interlocutory basis.

The Arkansas Supreme Court recently affirmed the trial courts'
decision to deny the Company and Bank's motion to compel
arbitration, finding that there was no mutual agreement or
obligation to arbitrate under the terms of the subject deposit
account agreement.  The parties are now engaged in pre-trial
discovery and have agreed to participate in non-binding mediation
regarding the plaintiff's claims.

Although there are significant uncertainties in any purported
class action litigation, the Company and the Bank believe that the
Plaintiffs' claims are subject to meritorious defenses and intend
to defend against these claims.

Bank of the Ozarks, Inc. (the "Company") is a bank holding company
headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas, which operates under the
rules and regulations of the Board of Governors of the Federal
Reserve System.

CAESARS ENTERPRISE: Faces "Arwine-Lucas" Suit Under FLSA, Mo. Law
-----------------------------------------------------------------
JENNIFER M. ARWINE-LUCAS, and KEVIN L. LUCAS, both individually,
and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v.
CAESARS ENTERPRISE SERVICES, LLC, Defendant, Case No. 4:17-cv-
00451-HFS (W.D. Mo., June 2, 2017), alleges that Defendant failed
to pay Plaintiffs, and other similarly situated employees, the
mandated federal and/or state minimum wage rate for all hours
worked and overtime for all hours worked over 40 in a single
workweek.

In particular, says the complaint, Defendant's time-clock rounding
policy, procedure, and practice is used in such a manner that it
results, over a period of time, in the failure to compensate its
employees properly for all time worked. Defendant also failed to
properly inform its tipped employees of the required tip credit
provisions.

Defendant also (i) failed to pay its employees for participating
in compensable training sessions required by Defendant, (ii)
miscalculated its employees' regular rate of pay for overtime
purposes, resulting in unpaid overtime compensation; and (iii)
subjected its employees to automatic thirty-minute meal period
deductions even when those employees did not receive a thirty-
minute bona fide meal period during their shift.

The case raises allegations of violation of the Fair Labor
Standards Act and the Missouri Minimum Wage Law.

Defendant is a centralized services company that employs personnel
who provide services to casino or gaming entertainment
properties.[BN]

CAPITAL ONE: Second Circuit Appeal Filed in "Roberts" Class Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff Tawanna M. Roberts filed an appeal from a District Court
opinion and order dated May 4, 2017, entered in the lawsuit
entitled Roberts v. Capital One Financial Corporation, DBA Capital
One Bank, Case No. 16-cv-4841, in the U.S. District Court for the

seeks restitution of all overdraft fees paid, disgorgement of ill-
gotten gains derived from misconduct, actual damages, punitive and
exemplary damages, pre-judgment interest, costs and disbursements
in connection with this action including reasonable attorney fees
and such other relief resulting from unjust enrichment and breach

COGNIZANT TECHNOLOGY: Securities Class Action Underway
------------------------------------------------------
Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation said in its Form 10-Q
Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5,
2017, for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2017, that the
defendants have until June 6, 2017 to answer or move to dismiss
the consolidated amended complaint in a class action lawsuit.

The Company said, "We are conducting an internal investigation
focused on whether certain payments relating to Company-owned
facilities in India were made improperly and in possible violation
of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA, and other
applicable laws. In September 2016, we voluntarily notified the
DOJ and SEC, and are cooperating fully with both agencies. The
investigation is being conducted under the oversight of the Audit
Committee, with the assistance of outside counsel. To date, the
investigation has identified a total of approximately $6 million
in payments made between 2010 and 2015 that may have been
improper. Based on the results of the investigation to date, no
material adjustments, restatements or other revisions to our
previously issued financial statements are required."

"On October 5, 2016, October 27, 2016, and November 18, 2016,
three putative securities class action complaints were filed in
the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey,
naming us and certain of our current and former officers as
defendants. In an order dated February 3, 2017, the United States
District Court for the District of New Jersey consolidated the
three putative securities class actions into a single action and
appointed lead plaintiffs and lead counsel. On April 7, 2017, the
lead plaintiffs filed a consolidated amended complaint on behalf
of a putative class of stockholders who purchased our common stock
during the period between February 27, 2015 and September 29,
2016, naming us and certain of our current and former officers as
defendants and alleging violations of the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934, as amended, based on allegedly false or misleading
statements related to potential violations of the FCPA, our
business, prospects and operations, and the effectiveness of our
internal controls over financial reporting and our disclosure
controls and procedures. The lead plaintiffs seek an award of
compensatory damages, among other relief, and their reasonable
costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees. Under a stipulation
filed by the parties on February 23, 2017, defendants have until
June 6, 2017 to answer or move to dismiss the consolidated amended
complaint."

FCA US: Must Honor Warranty, Says "Mooradian" Suit
--------------------------------------------------
Donna Mooradian and William Mooradian, on behalf of themselves and
all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. FCA US LLC,
Defendant, Case 1:17-cv-01132 (N.D. Ohio, May 31, 2017) seeks
damages and other relief under statutory or common law, attorney's
fees and costs, pre- and post-judgment interest, declaratory,
injunctive and equitable relief and such other relief resulting
from negligence, breach of express and implied warranties and
violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and the Ohio Consumer
Sales Practices Act.

The complaint says Chrysler refuses to honor its warranty and
cover the cost of repairing a manufacturing defect in the engines
of Chrysler's Jeep Wrangler model years 2012-2017. Casting sand
from the engine, radiators and oil coolers form a sludge-like
residue that damages and ultimately destroys these and other
components, it notes.

Donna and William Mooradian leased a new 2013 Jeep Wrangler
Unlimited from the Brunswick Auto Mart in Medina County, Ohio. Its
defroster and vents only emitted cold air and could not be
adjusted by manual settings. When they had it repaired, it was
discovered that a sludge-like residue was found in the radiator
and oil cooler and had caused the problems by restricting air flow
through the cooling system.

FCA US LLC is a limited liability company organized and existing
under the laws of the State of Delaware, and is wholly owned by
holding company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V., a Dutch
corporation headquartered in London, United Kingdom. FCA's
principal place of business and headquarters is in Auburn Hills,

falsely stated that the balances owed might increase "due to
interest, late charges and other charges," even though Finance
System had no authority or intent to charge "late charges and
other charges."

In his decision and order, Judge Griesbach stated that the
allegations of the complaint only allege that Finance System would
be unable to collect late charges and other charges on the debts
listed in its collection letter.  The complaint concedes that
Finance System is entitled to collect interest on its debts and
does not allege that Finance System will not attempt to collect
interest.

Given these facts, Judge Griesbach noted, Finance System's use of
the safe harbor language in Miller v. McCalla, Raymer, Padrick,
Cobb, Nichols & Clark, LLC, 214 F.3d 872, 876 (7th Cir. 2000) was
proper and the Plaintiffs have failed to state a claim under the
FDCPA.

"Finance System accurately notified Plaintiffs of the amount due
on the date of the letter and that the amounts due may vary due to
additional charges.  The letters were not false, deceptive, or
misleading.  Accordingly, Plaintiffs' FDCPA claims will be
dismissed," Judge Griesbach opined.

FNCB BANCORP: Awaits Final Approval of Settlement
-------------------------------------------------
FNCB Bancorp, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5, 2017, for the
quarterly period ended March 31, 2017, that the final settlement
hearing date of the class action settlement agreement and release
was scheduled for May 31, 2017.

On February 16, 2017, FNCB Bancorp  and FNCB Bank entered into a
Class Action Settlement Agreement and Release (the "Settlement
Agreement") in the matters filed in the Court of Common Pleas of
Lackawanna County to Steven Antonik, Individually, and as
Administrator of the Estate of Linda Kluska, William R. Howells
and Louise A. Howells, Summer Benjamin, and Joshua Silfee, on
behalf of themselves and all other similarly situated vs. First
National Community Bancorp, Inc. and First National Community
Bank, Civil Action No. 2013-CV-4438 and Charles Saxe, III,
Individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated vs.
First National Community Bank No. 2013-CV-5071 (collectively, the
"Actions").

By entering into this Settlement Agreement, the parties to the
Actions have resolved the claims made in the complaints to their
mutual satisfaction. FNCB has not admitted to the validity of any
claims or allegations and deny any liability in the claims made
and the Plaintiffs have not admitted that any claims or
allegations lack merit or foundation.

Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the parties have
agreed to the following:

     1) FNCB is to pay the Plaintiffs' class members the aggregate
        sum of $750,000 (an amount which FNCB recorded as a
        liability and corresponding expense in its 2015 operating
        results);

     2) Plaintiffs shall release all claims against FNCB related
        to the Actions;

     3) FNCB shall move to vacate or satisfy any judgments against
        any class members arising from the vehicle loans that are
        the subject of the Actions;

     4) FNCB shall waive the deficiency balance of each class
        member and remove the trade lines on each class members'
        credit report associated with the subject vehicle loans
        that are at issue in the Actions for Experian, Equifax,
        and Transunion.

The Settlement Agreement provides for an Incentive Award for the
representative Plaintiffs and an award to Plaintiffs' counsel of
attorney's fees and reimbursement of expenses in connection with
their roles in these Actions, subject to Court Approval.

The Settlement Agreement remains subject to approval by the Court
after notice to the class members and a final settlement hearing.
The final settlement hearing date was scheduled for May 31, 2017.

The hearing on the terms of the proposed Settlement Agreement will
be to determine whether:

     1) the terms and conditions of the settlement provided for in
        the Settlement Agreement are fair, reasonable and adequate
        and in the best interests of the class members;

     2) the judgment dismissing the claims of the class members,
        as provided for in the Settlement Agreement, shall be
        entered, and

     3) the request of the representative Plaintiffs for the
        Incentive Award and the Plaintiffs' counsel for an award
        for attorney's fees and reimbursement of expenses shall be
        granted.

In connection with the primary terms of the tentative settlement
agreement entered by Order of Court on December 17, 2015, FNCB
recorded a liability and corresponding expense in the amount of
$750,000, which was included in FNCB's 2015 operating results.

MERGER PARENT, L.P., and TERRA FIRMA MERGER SUB, L.P., Defendants,
Case No. 1:17-cv-00529 (W.D. Tex., June 2, 2017), alleges that
Defendants issued a Proxy Statement in connection with the

Capital Group that omits material information with respect to the
Proposed Transaction, rendering the Proxy Statement false and
misleading in violation of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Act.

Company to enter into an agreement and plan of merger with Terra
Firma Merger Parent, L.P. and Terra Firma Merger Sub, L.P.  Under

The complaint asserts that the Proxy Statement omits material
information regarding the Company's financial projections and the
analyses performed by the Company's financial advisor, JMP
Securities LLC, in support of its so-called fairness opinion.
The Proxy Statement also omits material information regarding
potential conflicts of interest of the Company's officers and

INTREXON CORP: Seppen Appeals Securities Suit Ruling to 9th Cir.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff Joe Seppen filed an appeal from a court ruling in the
consolidated securities litigation styled In re: Intrexon
Corporation Securities Litigation, Case No. 3:16-cv-02398-RS, in
the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California,
San Francisco.

The appellate case is captioned as Joe Seppen v. Intrexon
Corporation, et al., Case No. 17-16146, in the United States Court
of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, Judge Richard
Seeborg granted the Defendants' motion to dismiss the litigation.

Intrexon Corporation builds and acquires technologies that design,
modify and regulate DNA sequences. Intrexon's technologies include
UltraVector, RheoSwitch, AttSite Recombinases, Cell Systems
Informatics, Laser-Enabled Analysis and Processing and others.

In April 2016, an anonymous short-seller known as Spotlight
Research released an eight-part report about Intrexon and
concluded that Intrexon's core technology suite consists of an
overhyped, undifferentiated collection of commodity and failed
products. It said UltraVector is a common DNA synthesizer and that
Rheoswitch gained no traction over the years. It also opined that
Intrexon's revenues were overstated. It claimed that Intrexon
created an intricate web of microcap, zero revenue, free cash flow
negative companies that seem to exist solely for the purpose of
inflating Intrexon's revenue and profitability.

Lead plaintiff Joe Seppen brought a putative class action for
securities fraud against Intrexon Corp., Randal J. Kirk,
Intrexon's Chief Executive Officer since 2009 and had an
investment management firm, Third Security LLC that has been often
invested alongside Intrexon and other partners involved in various
collaborations, Rick L. Sterling, Intrexon's Chief Financial
Officer since 2007 and Krish S. Krishan, Intrexon's Chief
Operation Officer from 2011 until his resignation in March 2016.

The amended class action complaint primarily recites the findings
of the Spotlight report. It also includes brief statements from
three confidential witnesses. Seppen claims that defendants
violated section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act and Rule
10b-5 promulgated thereunder and asserts a violation of section
20(a) of the Exchange Act. Plaintiff is suing on behalf of all
persons who purchased Intrexon securities between May 11, 2015 and
April 27, 2016.

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

   -- Transcript must be ordered by June 26, 2017;

   -- Transcript is due on July 25, 2017;

   -- Appellant Joe Seppen's opening brief is due on September 5,
      2017;

   -- Appellees Intrexon Corporation, Randal J. Kirk, Krish S.
      Krishnan and Rick L. Sterling's answering brief is due on
      October 5, 2017; and

   -- Appellant's optional reply brief is due 21 days after
      service of the answering brief.[BN]

KATE SPADE: Faces "Ali" Securities Suit Over Sale to Coach, Inc.
----------------------------------------------------------------
JARED ALI, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. KATE SPADE & CO., NANCY J. KARCH, LAWRENCE
S. BENJAMIN, RAUL J. FERNANDEZ, CARSTEN FISCHER, KENNETH B.
GILMAN, KENNETH P. KOPELMAN, CRAIG A. LEAVITT, DEBORAH LLOYD,
DOUGLAS MACK, JAN SINGER, and DOREEN A. TOBEN, Defendants, Case
No. 1:17-cv-04125 (S.D.N.Y., June 2, 2017), alleges that a
recommendation statement to solicit the tendering of stockholder
shares in connection with the sale of the Company to Coach, Inc.
through Parent's wholly-owned subsidiary, Chelsea Merger Sub,
Inc., omits material facts necessary to make the statements
therein not false or misleading, in violation of the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Act.

The Tender Offer, commenced on May 26, 2017, is set to expire at
11:59 P.M. New York City Time on June 23, 2017. The Proposed
Transaction is valued at approximately $2.4 billion.

According to the complaint, the Recommendation Statement discloses
that the Company entered into confidentiality agreements with
Party A and Party B, as well as Coach during its search for
strategic partners. However, the Recommendation Statement is
materially misleading because it discloses the standstill
provision and terms of the agreement with Coach, but fails to

management negotiated their own retention agreements, and that
retention of key individuals was a requirement of the deal terms

Lancaster Wings West III LLC, and Larry Tipton Defendants, Case
No. 2:17-cv-00476-ALM-EPD (S.D. Ohio, June 3, 2017), arises out of
Defendants' alleged failure to pay Plaintiffs and other similarly-
situated tipped employees all earned minimum wages in violation of
the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The case alleges that Plaintiffs and the members of the Classes
are entitled to minimum wage for all hours worked and overtime for
hours over 40 in a week. Due to the Defendants' policy of
requiring them to work while they were off the clock, and
requiring them to do non-tip related work on tip-wages, Plaintiffs
and members of the Classes were not paid for the time they worked.
As a result, Plaintiffs and members of the Classes were illegally
undercompensated for their work, asserts the complaint.

Defendants own and operate franchised Buffalo Wild Wings
restaurants in Ohio and Arizona. Only the Ohio restaurants are the
subject of this lawsuit.  The case was filed on behalf of all

Seeking to represent a class of persons who purchased MetLife,

March 2011, the plaintiff filed an action alleging that MetLife,
Inc., certain current and former directors and executive officers
of MetLife, Inc., and various underwriters violated several

quarterly period ended March 31, 2017, that the Company continues

Plaintiff filed this putative class action lawsuit on behalf of
all persons for whom MLIC established a retained asset account,
known as a Total Control Accounts, to pay death benefits under an
Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA") plan.
The action alleges that MLIC's use of the TCA as the settlement
option for life insurance benefits under some group life insurance
policies violates MLIC's fiduciary duties under ERISA. As damages,
plaintiff seeks disgorgement of profits that MLIC realized on
accounts owned by members of the putative class.

On September 27, 2016, the court denied MLIC's summary judgment
motion in full and granted plaintiff's partial summary judgment
motion. The Company intends to defend this action vigorously.

Plaintiff filed this putative class action lawsuit on behalf of
himself and all persons covered under a long-term group disability
income insurance policy issued by MLIC to public entities in
California between April 8, 2011 and April 8, 2015. Plaintiff
alleges that MLIC improperly reduced benefits by including cost of
living adjustments and employee paid contributions in the employer
retirement benefits and other income that reduces the benefit
payable under such policies. Plaintiff asserts causes of action
for declaratory relief, violation of the California Business &
Professions Code, breach of contract and breach of the implied
covenant of good faith and fair dealing. The Company intends to
defend this action vigorously.

the case captioned, Martin v. Metropolitan Life Insurance Company,
(Superior Court of the State of California, County of Contra
Costa, filed December 17, 2015), remains pending.

Plaintiffs filed this putative class action lawsuit on behalf of
themselves and all California persons who have been charged
compound interest by MLIC in life insurance policy and/or premium
loan balances within the last four years. Plaintiffs allege that
MLIC has engaged in a pattern and practice of charging compound
interest on life insurance policy and premium loans without the
borrower authorizing such compounding, and that this constitutes
an unlawful business practice under California law. Plaintiff
asserts causes of action for declaratory relief, violation of
California's Unfair Competition Law and Usury Law, and unjust
enrichment. Plaintiff seeks declaratory and injunctive relief,
restitution of interest, and damages in an unspecified amount. On
April 12, 2016, the court granted MLIC's motion to dismiss.
Plaintiffs have filed an appeal of this ruling.

quarterly period ended March 31, 2017, that the Company continues
to defend against the case captioned as, Lau v. Metropolitan Life
Insurance Company (S.D.N.Y. filed, December 3, 2015).

This putative class action lawsuit was filed by a single defined
contribution plan participant on behalf of all ERISA plans whose
assets were invested in MetLife's "Group Annuity Contract Stable
Value Funds" within the past six years. The suit alleges breaches
of fiduciary duty under ERISA and challenges the "spread" with
respect to the stable value fund group annuity products sold to
retirement plans. The allegations focus on the methodology MetLife
uses to establish and reset the crediting rate, the terms under
which plan participants are permitted to transfer funds from a
stable value option to another investment option, the procedures
followed if an employer terminates a contract, and the level of
disclosure provided. Plaintiff seeks declaratory and injunctive
relief, as well as damages in an unspecified amount. The Company
intends to defend this action vigorously.

in the case captioned as, Newman v. Metropolitan Life Insurance
Company (N.D. Ill., filed March 23, 2016), remains pending.

Plaintiff filed this putative class action alleging causes of
action for breach of contract, fraud, and violations of the
Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act,
based on MLIC's class-wide increase in premiums charged for long-
term care insurance policies. Plaintiff alleges a class consisting
of herself and all persons over age 65 who selected a Reduced Pay
at Age 65 payment feature and whose premium rates were increased
after age 65. Plaintiff asserts that premiums could not be
increased for these class members and/or that marketing material
was misleading as to MLIC's right to increase premiums. Plaintiff
seeks unspecified compensatory, statutory and punitive damages as
well as recessionary and injunctive relief.

On April 12, 2017, the court granted MLIC's motion, dismissing the
action with prejudice. On April 21, 2017, plaintiff appealed this
ruling.

NETGEAR INC: Defending Against "Williams" Suit
----------------------------------------------
NETGEAR, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5, 2017, for the
quarterly period ended April 2, 2017, that the Company is facing
the case captioned, Williams v. NETGEAR, Inc.

On April 14, 2017, Plaintiff Stewart Williams filed a putative
class action against the Company in the United States District
Court for the Northern District of California. Plaintiff is
represented by Schubert Jonckheer & Kolbe LLP.

Plaintiff Stewart Williams alleges violations of California and
Nevada state consumer protection laws based on NETGEAR's sale and
marketing of its CM700 cable modem (the "Modem"). Specifically,
Plaintiff alleges that the Modem contains a defect that causes
severe network latency, impairing network connectivity and
preventing consumers from utilizing the maximum advertised network
bandwidth. According to Plaintiff, NETGEAR had exclusive knowledge
of this alleged defect and actively concealed the defect from
consumers with false marketing and labeling.

Based on these allegations, Plaintiff seeks to bring his lawsuit
as a class action representing a nationwide class of consumers.
Plaintiff states causes of action under California's (1) Song-
Beverly Consumer Warranty Act; (2) Consumer Legal Remedies Act,
(3) False Advertising Law, and (4) Unfair Competition Law. In
addition, Plaintiff seeks to represent a subclass of Nevada
consumers and brings a claim under Nevada's Deceptive Trade
Practices Act.

The Company has not yet answered the complaint. It is too early to
reasonably estimate any financial impact to the Company resulting
from this litigation matter.

The Plaintiff is represented by:

NEWLINK GENETICS: Securities Class Action Pending in New York
-------------------------------------------------------------
Newlink Genetics Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5, 2017, for
the quarterly period ended March 31, 2017, that the Company
continues to defend against a securities class action lawsuit.

On or about May 12, 2016, Trevor Abramson filed a putative
securities class action lawsuit in the United States District
Court for the Southern District of New York, or the Court,
captioned Abramson v. NewLink Genetics Corp., et al., Case 1:16-
cv-3545, or the Action.  Subsequently, the Court appointed Michael
and Kelly Nguyen as lead plaintiffs and approved their selection
of Kahn, Swick & Foti, LLC as lead counsel in the Action.

On October 31, 2016, the lead plaintiffs filed an amended
complaint which asserts claims under the federal securities laws
against the Company, the Company's Chief Executive Officer Charles
J. Link, Jr., and the Company's Chief Medical Officer and
President Nicholas Vahanian, or collectively, the Defendants.  The
amended complaint alleges the Defendants made material false
and/or misleading statements that caused losses to the Company's
investors. In particular, the lead plaintiffs allege that the
Defendants made material misstatements or omissions related to the
Phase II and III trials and efficacy of the product candidate
algenpantucel-L. The lead plaintiffs do not quantify any alleged
damages in the amended complaint but, in addition to attorneys'
fees and costs, they seek to recover damages on behalf of
themselves and other persons who purchased or otherwise acquired
the Company's stock during the putative class period of September
17, 2013 through May 9, 2016, inclusive, at allegedly inflated
prices and purportedly suffered financial harm as a result.

On April 27, 2017, the Court granted the parties' request for
leave to brief a motion to dismiss the amended complaint, and
ordered the parties to file a stipulation and proposed order
setting forth a schedule for the briefing of that motion.  The
Company disputes the claims in the Action and intends to defend
against them vigorously.

Newlink Genetics is a clinical stage immuno-oncology company
focused on discovering and developing novel immunotherapeutic
products for the treatment of cancer with an expertise in
infectious diseases that drives specific opportunities.

MICHAEL MILLER, LOWNDES A. SMITH, REID T. CAMPBELL, MORGAN W.
DAVIS, LOIS W. GRADY, IRA H. MALIS, G. MANNING ROUNTREE, PATRICK
A. THIELE, and KENT D. URNESS, Defendants, Case No. 0:17-cv-01883-

Transaction; and (iii) the valuation analyses prepared by

PATHWAY LEASING: Faces "Fisher" Suit Alleging FLSA Breach
---------------------------------------------------------
JESSE FISHER and LONNIE FAILS, both individuals, Plaintiffs, v.
PATHWAY LEASING LLC, a Colorado limited liability company;
MATTHEW HARRIS, an individual; INTERSTATE DISTRIBUTOR CO., a
Washington corporation registered to conduct business in Colorado;
BOOKER TRANSPORTATION SERVICES, INC., a Texas corporation; and
CARGILL MEAT LOGISTICS SOLUTIONS, INC., a Kansas
corporation registered to conduct business in Colorado,
Defendants, Case No. 1:17-cv-01329 (D. Col., June 1, 2017), was
brought as a collective action, pursuant to the Fair Labor
Standards Act.

The case alleges that Plaintiffs were duped into signing lease
agreements for trucks believing they could operate those trucks as
independent contractors and improve their lives through the
exercise of entrepreneurial spirit. In reality, after signing
these lease agreements, and other ancillary agreements, Defendants
controlled every aspect of Plaintiffs' work.

Furthermore, Defendants even required the companies that
Plaintiffs drove for to remit Plaintiffs' pay to Defendants so
that Defendants could make deductions from Plaintiffs' pay and
issue them paychecks, says the complaint. These deductions never
included payroll deductions mandated by state and federal law
governing the payment of wages, but rather, included improper and
unlawful deductions that resulted in Plaintiffs being paid less
than minimum wage on many occasions.

Defendants are lessors of trucks.[BN]

SIRIUS XM: Sweeney Appeals Decision in "Hooker" Suit to 4th Cir.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Party-in-Interest Patrick S. Sweeney filed an appeal from a court
ruling in the lawsuit entitled FRANCIS W. HOOKER, Jr., for himself
and on behalf of all similarly situated individuals v. SIRIUS XM
RADIO, INC., Case No. 4:13-cv-00003-AWA-LRL, in the U.S. District
Court for the Eastern District of Virginia at Newport News.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, Sirius XM
Holdings Inc. said in its Form 10-K Report for the fiscal year
ended December 31, 2016, that approximately 200 consumers, or less
than 0.002% of the consumers who received notice of settlement,
opted-out of the settlement of the Telephone Consumer Protection
Act class action suits.

Sirius XM Holdings said, "We were a defendant in several purported
class action suits that alleged that we, or call center vendors
acting on our behalf, made calls which violate provisions of the
Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (the "TCPA"). These
purported class action cases were titled Erik Knutson v. Sirius XM
Radio Inc., No. 12-cv-0418-AJB-NLS (S.D. Cal.), Francis W. Hooker
v. Sirius XM Radio Inc., No. 4:13-cv-3 (E.D. Va.), Yefim Elikman
v. Sirius XM Radio Inc. and Career Horizons, Inc., No. 1:15-cv-
02093 (N.D. Ill.), and Anthony Parker v. Sirius XM Radio Inc., No.
8:15-cv-01710-JSM-EAJ (M.D. Fla).

"We have entered into an agreement to settle these purported class
action suits. The settlement was approved by the United States
District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia in December
2016. The settlement resolves the claims of consumers beginning in
February 2008 relating to telemarketing calls to their mobile
telephones.  Approximately 200 consumers, or less than 0.002% of
the consumers who received notice of the settlement, opted-out of
this class action settlement.

"As part of this settlement, we made a $35 million payment to a
settlement fund (from which notice, administration and other costs
and attorneys' fees are being paid), and are offering
participating class members the option of receiving three months
of our Select service for no charge."

Sirius transmits music, sports, entertainment, comedy, talk, news,
traffic and weather channels, as well as infotainment services, in
the United States on a subscription fee basis through its two
proprietary satellite radio systems.

SITUATED, PLAINTIFF v. SPRING BRANCH SNF LLC,
DEFENDANT, Case No. 4:17-cv-01654 (S.D. Tex., June 1, 2017),

TENNECO INC: Still Faces Suit over Anticompetitive Conduct
----------------------------------------------------------
Tenneco Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5, 2017, for the
quarterly period ended March 31, 2017, that Tenneco and certain of
its competitors are currently defendants in civil putative class
action litigation in the United States. More related lawsuits may
be filed, including in other jurisdictions. Plaintiffs in these
cases generally allege that defendants have engaged in
anticompetitive conduct, in violation of federal and state laws,
relating to the sale of automotive exhaust systems or components
thereof. Plaintiffs seek to recover, on behalf of themselves and
various purported classes of purchasers, injunctive relief,
damages and attorneys' fees.

The Company said, "because we received conditional leniency from
the DOJ, our civil liability in these follow-on actions is limited
to single damages and we will not be jointly and severally liable
with the other defendants, provided that we have satisfied our
obligations under the DOJ leniency agreement and approval is
granted by the presiding court."

Tenneco is one of the world's leading manufacturers of clean air
and ride performance products and systems for light vehicle,
commercial truck and off-highway applications.


TERREBONNE ARC: Certification of Class Sought in "Robinson" Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
The parties in the lawsuit titled CANDY ROBINSON, on behalf of
herself and all others similarly situated v. TARC aka TERREBONNE
ARC, Case No. 2:17-cv-00041-CJB-JCW (E.D. La.), file with the
Court their joint motion for conditional class certification.

Ms. Robinson and TARC agree to the conditional certification of
this class:

     All current and former non-exempt hourly employees of
     Defendant who performed work for Defendant in the State of
     Louisiana in more than one job capacity at the same time
     since May 2014, who worked over 40 hours during at least one
     workweek since May 2014, and who were paid by the hour at
     different hourly rates of pay for each job performed.

The Parties agree that TARC's agreement to conditional
certification of the Fair Labor Standards Act collective class
does not waive TARC's right to argue that the FLSA collective
class should be decertified and any defenses that it may have to
the substantive claims in the lawsuit.

The Parties also ask the Court to approve the proposed notice and
consent form as agreed to by the Parties.  The Parties further ask
that the Court deny Ms. Robinson's pending Motion for Conditional
Certification as moot.

TRANSGLOBAL SERVICES: Brown, et al. Alleges Misclassification
------------------------------------------------------------
BERNARD BROWN, CEDRIC TAYLOR, JR., TRAVIS MCCULLUM, NICHOLAS SMITH
and STAYCIE HANCOCK, Individually and On Behalf of All
Others Similarly Situated, Plaintiffs, vs. TRANSGLOBAL SERVICES,
LLC, JEFFERY COLWELL, KAVEH BARAKHSHAN and JOHN RATLIFF
Defendants, Case No. 7:17-cv-00108 (W.D. Tex., June 1, 2017),
alleges that Defendants misclassified Plaintiffs and their other
workers as independent contractors to avoid paying employment
taxes, workers' compensation insurance, benefits and overtime.

During their time with Defendants, notes the complaint, Plaintiffs
typically worked at least 12-15 hours per day, at least six days
per week. Plaintiffs and other workers for Defendants were paid on
an hourly basis, and were paid the same hourly rate for each hour
worked, and thus never received overtime pay.

Plaintiffs, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly
situated, bring this collective action to recover overtime
compensation and all other available remedies under the Fair Labor
Standards Act.

TRANSGLOBAL SERVICES, LLC is a full service field service provider
in the energy industry.  Plaintiffs were hired by Transglobal as

UMPQUA HOLDINGS: Class Action Appeal Underway
---------------------------------------------
Umpqua Holdings Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5, 2017, for
the quarterly period ended March 31, 2017, that an appeal in a
class action lawsuit remains pending.

The Company assumed, as successor-in-interest to Sterling, the
defense of litigation matters pending against Sterling. Sterling
previously reported that on December 11, 2009, a putative
securities class action complaint captioned City of Roseville
Employees' Retirement System v. Sterling Financial Corp., et al.,
No. CV 09-00368-EFS, was filed in the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of Washington against Sterling and
certain of its current and former officers.

On June 18, 2010, lead plaintiff filed a consolidated complaint
alleging that the defendants violated sections 10(b) and 20(a) of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and SEC Rule 10b-5 by making
false and misleading statements concerning Sterling's business and
financial results. Plaintiffs sought unspecified damages and
attorneys' fees and costs.

On August 30, 2010, Sterling moved to dismiss the Complaint, and
the court granted the motion to dismiss without prejudice on
August 5, 2013. On October 11, 2013, the lead plaintiff filed an
amended consolidated complaint with the same defendants, class
period, alleged violations, and relief sought.

On January 24, 2014, Sterling moved to dismiss the amended
consolidated complaint, and on September 17, 2014, the court
entered an order dismissing the amended consolidated complaint in
its entirety with no further leave to amend.

On October 24, 2014, plaintiffs filed a Notice of Appeal to the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit from the district
court's order granting the motion to dismiss the amended
consolidated complaint. Appellant filed its opening brief on April
3, 2015 and the Company filed its reply brief on June 17, 2015;
additional appellate briefing was filed in the third quarter 2015.
The appellate court was scheduled to hold a hearing on May 10,
2017.

Umpqua Holdings Corporation, an Oregon corporation, is a financial
holding company with two principal operating subsidiaries, Umpqua
Bank and Umpqua Investments, Inc.


VEECO INSTRUMENTS: Faces Class Suit by Ultratech Shareholders
-------------------------------------------------------------
Veeco Instruments Inc. is facing class action lawsuits by
Ultratech shareholders, Veeco said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5, 2017, for
the quarterly period ended March 31, 2017.

On March 17, 2017, an Ultratech shareholder filed a purported
class action complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of California, captioned The Vladimir Gusinsky Rev. Trust
v. Ultratech, Inc., et al., Case No. 4:17-cv-01468-PJH, on behalf
of itself and all other Ultratech shareholders against Ultratech,
its directors at the time the acquisition was announced, Veeco,
and Merger Sub.  The complaint alleges, among other things, that
in connection with Veeco's proposed acquisition of Ultratech, the
defendants purportedly agreed to a supposedly inadequate price for
the Ultratech shares, agreed to unreasonable deal-protection
measures, and potentially engaged in supposed self-dealing.  The
complaint seeks to recover under Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 for alleged misstatements and
omissions in the preliminary proxy statement filed on March 13,
2017.  The complaint seeks declaratory and injunctive relief,
including enjoining or rescinding the transaction and rescissory
damages to the extent already implemented, an order directing the
dissemination of a proxy statement that is not false or
misleading, and an award of attorneys' and experts' fees.

On March 22, 2017, two other Ultratech shareholders filed a
purported class action complaint in the U.S. District Court for
the Northern District of California, captioned De Letter et al. v.
Ultratech, Inc., et al., Case No. 3:17-cv-01542-WHA, on behalf of
themselves and all other Ultratech shareholders against Ultratech
and its directors at the time the acquisition was announced.  The
complaint alleges, among other things, that in connection with
Veeco's proposed acquisition of Ultratech, the defendants
purportedly agreed to a supposedly inadequate price for the
Ultratech shares and potentially engaged in supposed self-dealing.
The complaint further alleges that the sale process was flawed and
tainted by the self-interest of certain directors.  The complaint
seeks to recover under Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 for alleged misstatements and omissions in
the preliminary proxy statement filed on March 13, 2017.  The
complaint seeks injunctive relief, including enjoining or
rescinding the transaction and rescissory damages to the extent
already implemented, compensatory damages, and an award of
attorneys' and experts' fees.

The defendants have not yet responded to either complaint.  While
it is too early to predict the outcome of litigation or a
reasonable range of potential losses, Veeco believes these
lawsuits are without merit.  Additional lawsuits arising out of or
relating to the merger agreement or the merger may be filed in the
future.

Veeco designs, manufactures, and markets thin film process
equipment aligned to meet the demands of key global trends such as
energy conservation, mobility, and connectivity.  Its equipment is
primarily used to make components for electronic devices including
LEDs, displays, power electronics, wireless devices, smartphones,
sensors, MEMS, and HDDs.


WELCH FOODS: "Hall" Class Suit Removed to New Jersey Dist.
----------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit captioned Lauren Hall, on behalf of
herself and others similarly situated v. Welch Foods, Inc. and The
Promotion in Motion Companies, Inc., Case No. L-1334-17, filed on
April 5, 2017 was removed from the Superior Court of
the State of New Jersey, Monmouth County to the U.S. District
Court for the District of New Jersey on June 5, 2017. The District
Court Clerk assigned Case No. 2:17-cv-03997 to the proceeding.

The Complaint alleges that Defendants are liable to Plaintiff and
the putative class for allegedly violating the New Jersey Consumer
Fraud Act, violating the New Jersey Truth-in-Consumer Contract,
Warranty and Notice Act, and for breach of express warranty,
breach of implied warranty of merchantability, common law fraud,
unjust enrichment, and injunctive and declaratory relief.

Welch Foods, Inc. processes and produces grape-based products that

WGL HOLDINGS: Still Defends Suit over Apartment Fire
----------------------------------------------------
WGL Holdings, Inc. and Washington Gas Light Company said in their
Form 10-Q Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission
on May 5, 2017, for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2017,
that the Company still defends a class action lawsuit related to
the Silver Spring, Maryland incident.

Washington Gas continues to support the investigation by the NTSB
into the August 10, 2016 explosion and fire at an apartment
complex on Arliss Street in Silver Spring, Maryland, the cause of
which has not been determined.  Additional information will be
made available by the NTSB at the appropriate time.

On November 2, 2016, two civil actions were filed in the District
of Columbia Superior Court against WGL Holdings and Washington Gas
(as well as a property management company that is not affiliated
with WGL Holdings or Washington Gas), by residents of the
apartment complex.

In one lawsuit, twenty-nine plaintiffs seek unspecified damages
for, among others, wrongful death and personal injury. The other
action is a class action suit seeking total damages stated to be
less than $5 million for, among others, property damage and
various counts relating to the loss of the use of the premises.

Both actions allege causes of action for negligence, product
liability, and declaratory relief.

Thirty-one civil actions have been filed in the Circuit Court for
Montgomery County, Maryland seeking unspecified damages for
personal injury and property damage.

The Company said, "We maintain excess liability insurance coverage
from highly-rated insurers, subject to a nominal self-insured
retention. We believe that this coverage will be sufficient to
cover any significant liability to it that may result from this
incident. Management is unable to determine a range of potential
losses that are reasonably possible of occurring and therefore we
have not recorded a reserve associated with this incident.
Washington Gas was invited by the NTSB to be a party to the
investigation and in that capacity continues to work closely with
the NTSB to help determine the cause of this incident."

WGL, through its subsidiaries, sells and delivers natural gas and
provides a variety of energy-related products and services to
customers primarily in the District of Columbia and the
surrounding metropolitan areas in Maryland and Virginia.
