Comcast's cable and internet service devices in Comcast's clients'
homes.  The Plaintiff claims that Icon Cable was a contractor for
Comcast and that Comcast is liable for Icon Cable's wage and hour
violations as a "joint employer" under the FLSA and Minimum Wage
Act. Comcast disputes that it was or is an employer or joint
employer of any Icon Cable cable technician.

Currently before the Court is the parties' Joint Motion.  They seek
conditional certification of an FLSA collection action,
certification of a Rule 23 class action, and preliminary approval
of the executed Final Settlement Agreement and Final Release
resolving the FLSA and state law claims.

The parties propose the following notice and settlement procedure:
after certification of a conditional FLSA collective action and
Rule 23 class action, a settlement administrator will send a class
notice to each class member.  Under the procedure proposed by the
parties, the notice will contain the basic terms of the settlement
agreement, an estimated sum of damages of the class member, and the
procedure by which a class member may object to or opt out of the
class action within 60 days of mailing of the notice.  They
submitted a proposed notice that references both the state and
federal claims.  That notice contains information related to opting
out of the class or objecting to the settlement.  It does not
describe the opt-in procedure for FLSA claims or provide a consent
to join form for the FLSA claims, but does note that FLSA claims
will be released if the class member signs and cashes the check.

After the close of the opt-out period, the parties propose to move
for final approval of the settlement agreement.  After final
approval of the settlement agreement, the settlement administrator
will then send checks to class members who do not opt out according
to an agreed-upon methodology which combines settlement payments
for the FLSA and Minimum Wage Act claims..

By cashing the settlement check, a Qualified Class Member waives
his or her federal FLSA claims against Comcast.  If a Qualified
Class Member does not cash the settlement check by a certain date,
he or she becomes an "Affected Class Member," who releases all
Minimum Wage Act claims but not FLSA claims.  Essentially, by
signing the settlement check, a Qualified Class Member opts into
the FLSA action.

The parties have stipulated to the following class definitions:

     (1) As to the Minimum Wage Act class action claims, a class
defined as all Icon Cable employees who worked as cable
installation technicians between Oct. 13, 2014 and April 26, 2016.

     (2) As to the FLSA collective action claims, a group defined
as all Icon Cable employees who worked as cable installation
technicians between Oct. 13, 2013 and April 26, 2016.

They explain in a footnote that these proposed classes exclude
individuals who did not finish the two- to four-week training
program because those individuals earned above minimum wage and did
not incur vehicle expenses.

Judge Martinez finds that the Plaintiffs have meet the Rule 23(a)
prerequisites.  Having reviewed the record and being fully advised,
he agrees with the parties' conclusion that class certification is
appropriate under Rule 23(b)(3).  For essentially the same reasons
explained, as to Rule 23, and given the parties' stipulation and
joint motion, he also finds that preliminary certification of the
proposed FLSA class is warranted under the comparatively lenient
standard for preliminary certification and notice of an FLSA
collective action.

Finally, the Judge finds that the parties' proposed notice and FLSA
procedure does not give the FLSA opt-in Plaintiffs the ability to
intentionally join and meaningfully participate in the litigation.
Because the notice and proposed settlement will have to be altered
to incorporate changes FLSA opt-in procedures (which may in turn
impact distribution of the settlement to the FLSA Plaintiffs), the
Judge will deny without prejudice the parties' Joint Motion as to
proposed notice and the settlement agreement.

For these reasons, Judge Martinez granted in part and denied in
part the parties' Joint Motion to for Conditional Certification of
Class and Preliminary Approval of Settlement Agreement.  He
conditioonally certified as a collective action under 29 U.S.C.
Section 216(b), with the collective action members eligible to
opt-in to the Plaintiff's First Claim for Relief defined as all
Icon Cable employees who completed the training program and worked
as cable installation technicians between Oct. 13, 2013 and April
26, 2016.

The Judge certified a Class under Fed. R. Civ. P. 23(a) & 23(b)(3)
the following class as to the Plaintiff's Second Claim for Relief"
all Icon Cable employees who completed the training program and
worked as cable installation technicians between Oct. 13, 2014 and
April 26, 2016.

He approved Diaz as the class representative; and Brandt Milstein,
Milstein Law Office, 1123 Spruce Street, Suite 200, Boulder, CO
80302. as the class counsel.

No later than Aug. 31, 2018 the parties will submit a proposed
opt-in FLSA Notice and Consent to Join for the Court's review and
approval.  In the Order the Court issues approving the FLSA opt-in
notice, it will set the deadline for the parties to complete the
mailing of these documents, as well as the closing date for the
FLSA opt-in period.  These deadlines will be included in the FLSA
Notice.  The parties will then effect notice to potential FLSA
collective action members by mailing to all such persons, via
first-class U.S. Mail, the final FLSA Notice and Consent to Join
form, incorporating any Court modifications.

The parties will file a Notice of Completion of Mailing within
seven days of completing the mailing.  After the opt-in period
expires and the opt-in Plaintiffs are known, assuming the parties
still wish to settle, the parties will filed a copy of a revised
settlement agreement together with a motion for its preliminary
approval and proposed Rule 23 class notice form.  If the parties no
longer intend to settle, the parties will instead file a status
report within 10 days after the FLSA opt-in period has expired.

Upon receipt of a Motion for Preliminary Approval of a Revised
Settlement Agreement, the Court will determine whether to approve
the proposed settlement and, as needed, approve notice of the Rule
23 class certification and settlement, and set a final fairness
hearing and related deadlines for filing objections and a request
for final approval.

Jugde Martinez denied without prejudice all other relief requested
in the Joint Motion.

DASHUB LLC: Ounis Seeks Damages for Overpiced Vehicle Purchase
---------------------------------------------------------------
Yacine Ounis, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Dashub, LLC, Defendant, Case No.
18-cv-05064 (E.D. N.Y., September 6, 2018), seeks actual, treble,
statutory and punitive damages, rescission, attorney fees and costs
and such other, different and further relief for violation of New
York Vehicle and Traffic Law and New York State General Business
Law.

The Defendant is a licensed automobile dealer that sells vehicles
purchased at auction to consumers nationwide. It bids on and buys
used vehicles at auctions and then sells the vehicle to the
consumer for a fee. Dashub allegedly falsified the winning bid
prices on the vehicles it purchases, represents to its customers
that it paid a higher price at auctions than it actually paid and
then charges its customers that inflated price and pockets the
difference.

On April 17, 2018, using Dashub's website, Plaintiff paid a
required $1,300.00 deposit and entered a bid amount of $10,830.00
for a 2012 BMW 3 Series. Ounis received an email informing him of
being the highest bidder for $10,600.00. In reality, however, the
actual winning bid amount for the said vehicle was $10,100.00 plus
an auction fee of $658.00, transaction fee of $499.00,
documentation fee of $85.00 and a shipping fee of $275.00. To add
to that, the vehicle did not have a warranty. [BN]

DEARBORN MOTORS: Reconsideration Bid in Williams Suit Denied
------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, BRIAN P. WILLIAMS and JAY HOWARD, Plaintiffs, v.
DEARBORN MOTORS 1, LLC, d/b/a ALL PRO NISSAN OF DEARBORN,
Defendant, Case No. 17-12724 (E.D. Mich.), Judge Nancy G. Edmunds
of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan,
Southern Division, denied the Plaintiffs' motion for
reconsideration filed on June 7, 2018.

On May 24, 2018, the Court entered an Order Granting Defendant's
Motion to Dismiss Plaintiffs' Class Claims and to Compel
Arbitration of Plaintiff Howard's Individual Claims.  The matter is
now before the Court on the Plaintiffs' motion for reconsideration.
The Defendant filed a response on June 20, 2018.  The Court heard
oral argument on Aug. 8, 2018.

At the outset, Judge Edmunds agrees with the Defendant that the
Plaintiffs base their motion for reconsideration in large part on
new legal arguments that were available at the time they responded
to the Defendant's motion to dismiss the Plaintiffs' class claims
and to compel arbitration of Howard's individual claims.  She says
a motion for reconsideration is not a vehicle to proffer new
arguments that the movant could have brought up earlier.  

Additionally, the Plaintiffs have not demonstrated a palpable
defect by which the Court or the parties have been mislead.  That
said, there have been recent developments in this area of the law,
and the Court did not hear oral argument from the parties before
issuing its May 24, 2018 Order.  Accordingly, the Court requested
further briefing and heard oral argument on the Plaintiffs' motion
for reconsideration, and the Judge addresses the Plaintiffs' new
arguments.

After heavily relying on Nat'l Labor Relations Bd. v. Alternative
Entm't, Inc., in response to the Defendant's motion to dismiss and
to compel arbitration, the Plaintiffs now maintain that the Supreme
Court's recent decision in Epic Sys. Corp. v. Lewis, which
abrogates Alternative Entertainment, does not pertain to their
pattern-or-practice claims under Title VII, the Americans with
Disabilities Act ("ADA"), and the Age Discrimination in Employment
Act ("ADEA").  The Plaintiffs now argue that Epic Systems is
limited to wage and overtime claims under the Fair Labor Standards
Act ("FLSA").

As the Court stressed in its May 24, 2018 Order, the Judge finds
that the Plaintiffs challenge the arbitration agreement precisely
because it requires individual arbitration, yet Supreme Court
precedent teaches that such an argument impermissibly disfavors
arbitration.  The Supreme Court has stressed that an overarching
purpose of the FAA is to ensure the enforcement of arbitration
agreements according to their terms so as to facilitate streamlined
proceedings.  Requiring the availability of classwide arbitration
interferes with fundamental attributes of arbitration.  By
attacking only the individualized nature of the arbitration
proceedings they agreed to, the Plaintiffs seek to interfere with
one of arbitration's fundamental attributes.

The Plaintiffs now argue that the Court cannot compel individual
arbitration of their pattern-or-practice class claims under Title
VII, ADA, and ADEA because that would limit their rights under the
Acts. Defendant responds that Plaintiffs erroneously identify this
case as a pattern-or-practice class action. Defendant further
argues that "pattern-or-practice" refers to a method of proving
discrimination which affords no substantive right, and not to a
freestanding cause of action.

The Judge finds that their argument must fail because
"pattern-or-practice" refers to a judicially-crafted method of
proof and not a freestanding cause of action.  Simply put, the
Plaintiffs have no substantive statutory right to bring a
"pattern-or-practice" class claim.

The Plaintiffs next invoke a judge-made exception to the FAA,
arguing that the arbitration agreement prevents the effective
vindication of their statutory rights under Title VII, the ADA, and
the ADEA.  The Judge holds that this argument must fail.  She says
the arbitration agreement specifically states that the arbitrator
will permit reasonable discovery and will be permitted to award any
relief that would be available in a court.  Although the
arbitration agreement includes a class-action waiver, it does not
eliminate the Plaintiffs' right to pursue their statutory remedies;
it merely limits arbitration to the two contracting parties.

Finally, the fact remains that the Plaintiffs have failed to
explain how they have standing to argue that the opt-out provision
in the arbitration agreement impedes the EEOC's enforcement powers.
The Judge concludes that, even assuming that the arbitration
agreement violates Title VII's, the ADA's, and the ADEA's
procedural requirements, the Plaintiffs have not shown that the
violation resulted in concrete harm or entails a degree of risk
sufficient to meet the concreteness requirement.

For these reasons, Judge Edmunds denied the Plaintiffs' motion for
reconsideration.

unpaid wages and overtime wages under the Fair Labor Standards

Delek operates refineries located in Tyler, Texas, Big Spring,
Texas, El Dorado, Arkansas and Krotz Springs, Louisiana where
Plaintiffs worked as maintenance and warehouse workers. They claim
overtime wages for all time worked in excess of 40 hours per

overtime wages by failing to include shift differential pay in the
regular rate from which their overtime wages were calculated. Delek
allegedly rounded-down employees' working hours to the lower
quarter hour and automatically deducted a thirty minute meal break
yet required employees to work "off-the-clock" for as much as 30-45
minutes per shift. [BN]

INKSTER, MI: Court Narrows Claims in Garner Suit
------------------------------------------------
In the case, GARNER PROPERTIES & MANAGEMENT LLC, CHRISTOPHER L.
GARNER; and OLIVIA HEMARATANATORN, Plaintiffs, v. CITY OF INKSTER;
GINA TRIPLETT; MCKENNA ASSOCIATES, INC.; and JIM WRIGHT,
Defendants, Case No. 17-cv-13960 (E.D. Mich.), Judge Paul D. Borman
of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan,
Southern Division, (i) granted in part and denied in part the City
of Inkster and Triplett's motion to dismiss; (ii) granted McKenna
and Wright's motion to dismiss Counts I and II of the Plaintiffs'
Complaint; and (iii) granted the Plaintiff leave to amend Count I
of the Complaint to correct a singular pleading error.

The Plaintiffs have filed the putative class action against the
City of Inkster, Gina Triplett, McKenna Associates, Inc. and Jim
Wright, for the alleged unconstitutional levy of penalties and
fines, and threats of imprisonment, for alleged violations of
certain City of Inkster rental property codes and ordinances.  The
Plaintiffs bring the putative class action on behalf of a class of
persons who own residential real property in the City of Inkster
and have been fined for failing to have a certificate of occupancy
for a rental property.

The Plaintiffs allege that under the Home Rule City Ac, municipal
entities like the City, are empowered to adopt certain laws, codes,
or rules for building maintenance control in their jurisdictions.
Pursuant to this authority, the City has adopted the International
Property Maintenance Code ("IPMC") through City Ordinance Section
150.001, to regulate and govern the conditions and maintenance of
all property, buildings and structures by providing the standards
for supplied utilities and facilities and other physical things and
conditions essential to ensure that structures are safe, sanitary
and fit for occupation and use.

They Plaintiffs further allege that the City has enacted other
ordinances that regulate the operation of rental housing within the
City that require an owner of investment real estate who wants to
rent property to register the property, obtain an inspection of the
property, complete necessary repairs under the applicable code, and
thereafter obtain a certificate of compliance.  The City's
inspection under these ordinances is governed by the City's
adoption of the IPMC, and inspection requires compliance with the
IPMC such that an owner of rental property cannot obtain a
certificate of compliance from the City until he or she passes an
inspection pursuant to the IPMC.

The Complaint alleges that the IPMC contains its own set of
procedural guidelines that the City must comply with, such as the
provision that a prosecution for violations for a failure to
comport with an inspection performed under the IPMC cannot be
initiated until a person has failed to comply with a notice of
violation served in accordance with Section 107 of the IPMC.  The
Plaintiffs allege that despite these procedural guidelines required
by the IPMC, the City refuses to comply with them and instead
issues civil infraction fines and misdemeanor violations to the
owners for failure to bring properties in compliance with the IPMC
by issuing tickets for failing to obtain a certificate of occupancy
under the City's local ordinances, without regard to the Notice
requirements of the IPMC.

Finally, the Plaintiffs allege that the inspection provisions of
the IPMC, both facially and as applied by the City, violate the
Fourth Amendment guarantee against unreasonable searches because
the code allegedly permits the City to conduct random searches for
code violations, which carry criminal penalties, without a warrant
and without reasonable suspicion.

Plaintiffs' allegations essentially group into three separate
claims: (1) deprivation of due process by property owners for
failure to notify them of their right to appeal and failure to
maintain a board of appeals to hear appeals from code violations
and to enforce the stay provision of the IPMC; (2) deprivation of
due process, and Fourth Amendment violation for lack of probable
cause, by individual members of certain property management
business entities (LLCs and corporations) who are not property
owners and are being personally charged with criminal violations
when the City (and Triplett individually) have knowledge that these
individuals are simply "members" or "employees" of a property
management company and are not the legally responsible entity; and
(3) unconstitutionality, both facial and as applied, of provisions
of the Inkster City Code that permit home inspections without a
warrant or reasonable suspicion for the purpose of detecting code
violations.

Specifically, Count One alleges a violation of the due process
rights of homeowners based upon the lack of notice to them of their
right to appeal determinations of a code official under the IPMC.
Count Two alleges "due process" violations and "lack of probable
cause" to institute criminal proceedings against non-owners of
rental properties.  Count Three alleges a violation of due process
rights of both owners and non-owners of real property due to the
City's failure to create a board of appeals as required under the
IPMC to challenge the strict liability determinations and failure
to institute the stay of enforcement required under the IPMC in the
instance of an appeal.  Count Four challenges the provisions of the
IPMC (Section 104.3) pursuant to which the City allegedly conducts
warrantless searches of rental properties without reasonable cause
as unconstitutional under the Fourth Amendment, both facially and
as applied.  Count Five, captioned "Individual Liability of the
Defendants," sets forth allegations specific to the individual
Defendants, Triplett and Wright, and their personal involvement in
the unconstitutional conduct alleged in the Complaint.  Count Six
(Assumpsit) has been voluntarily dismissed by the Plaintiffs.
Count Seven, captioned "Municipal Liability," sets forth
allegations on behalf of homeowners specific to the alleged policy
and customs of the City in carrying out the unconstitutional acts
alleged in the Complaint.  Count Eight, captioned "Unconstitutional
Conditions Doctrine," alleges that the City uses its mandatory
inspection and rental ordinances to force homeowners to relinquish
their constitutional rights to be free from unreasonable searches
and seizures and to force non-owners to relinquish their right to
rent property in the City or face civil and criminal penalties.
Counts Nine and Ten seek injunctive and declaratory relief,
respectively, with respect to the conduct alleged in the Complaint
.  Count Eleven, captioned "Violation of 42 U.S.C. Section 1983,"
reasserts a claim for deprivation of due process under that statute
and seeks attorneys fees.  Counts Twelve through Fifteen allege the
following state law claims, respectively: Malicious Prosecution (by
non-owners/property managers as to whom City lacked probable cause
to issue violations), Abuse of Process (same factual basis as
Malicious Prosecution), Assumpsit/Unjust Enrichment/Restitution
(for illegal extraction of fines and fees), and Defamation Per Se
(for allegedly defamatory statements made in connection with
charging Plaintiffs with criminal conduct).

Triplett now moves, under Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6), to dismiss all
claims against her on the basis of qualified immunity and the City
moves for partial dismissal, also pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P.
12(b)(6), of Count I (Violation of Due Process), Count VI
(Assumpsit), and all state law claims, i.e. Counts XII (Malicious
Prosecution), XIII (Abuse of Process), XIV (Assumpsit/Unjust
Enrichment/Restitution), and XV (Defamation Per Se). (ECF No. 20,
City and Triplett's Mot. 7.)  Defendants McKenna and Wright move
separately, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6), to dismiss Counts
I and II of the Plaintiffs' Complaint.

The Court held a hearing on June 15, 2018.

Judge Borman (i) granted Triplett's motion to dismiss, on the basis
of qualified immunity, the Plaintiffs' claims against her alleging
a due process violation based upon her issuance of Notices of
Violation that did not contain information regarding a right to
appeal;
(ii) denied Triplett and the City's motion to Dismiss Count II;
(iii) granted the City's Motion to Dismiss Plaintiffs' state law
claims (Counts XII-XV); (iv) granted Defendants Wright and
McKenna's Motion to Dismiss Count II of Plaintiffs' Complaint; (v)
granted the Defendants' motions to dismiss Count I of the Complaint
but granted the Plaintiffs leave to amend Count I of the Complaint.


The Judge ordered that the Plaintiffs' Amended Complaint,
consistent with the Opinion and Order, will be filed within 14 days
of the date of his Opinion and Order.  The Plaintiffs' Amended
Complaint will also specify which of the remaining Counts of the
Complaint are asserted against which specific Defendants.

JOHNSON CONTROLS: Court Denies Bid to Certify Hostetler Class
-------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, AMOS HOSTETLER, et al., Plaintiffs, v. JOHNSON
CONTROLS, INC, et al., Defendants, Case No. 3:15-CV-226 JD (N.D.
Ind.), Judge Jon E. DeGuilio of the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of Indiana, South Bend Division, denied the
Plaintiffs' motion for class certification.

The case is an environmental action over contamination that was
released at a factory and has since migrated to neighboring
properties.  The Plaintiffs, five individuals who live in that
neighborhood, seek damages for illnesses (or increased risks of
future illness) that they suffered because of their exposure to the
contamination.  They also seek an injunction requiring the
contamination to be cleaned up.

In addition to asserting claims on their own behalf, they seek
class certification of "liability-related" issues that they assert
would be common to potential claims by others in their neighborhood
who have been affected by the same contamination.  They moved to
certify a class of everyone who has owned, rented, or occupied
property in the area at any time from 1992 through May 2014.

The Plaintiffs propose to address seven specific issues on a
class-wide basis.  They do not contend that those issues would
resolve any of the class members' claims in whole, or even
establish the defendants' liability; they concede that once the
class issues have been resolved, individual trials would be
necessary to establish, as to each class member, whether the
Defendants are liable on any of the claims, whether the class
member has been exposed to and injured by the contamination, and
the amount of damages owed for that injury.  The Plaintiffs admit
that, even with the benefit of the initial class proceedings, each
of those separate trials would be complex and costly, requiring
expert testimony to establish both the individuals' exposure to
contamination and a causal link between that exposure and the
individuals' injuries.  However, the Plaintiffs contend that the
issues they have identified can be resolved on a classwide basis,
and that doing so will facilitate and narrow the issues to be
resolved in the individual trials.

Johnson Controls also filed a motion to strike certain opinions
offered by the Plaintiffs' expert, Dr. Keramida.  It first moves to
strike Dr. Keramida's opinion that there is (or was) a completed
vapor intrusion pathway for all 128 current and former structures
in the Class Area.  That opinion is not critical to the motion for
class certification for a simple reason: the Plaintiffs do not
offer or rely on that opinion in support of their motion.

To the contrary, Judge DeGuilio finds that they expressly disclaim
such an opinion at this stage.  Dr. Keramida does not intend to
testify that a 'completed pathway' exists today at every home
within the Class Area.  All the Plaintiffs argue at this stage is
that contamination exists somewhere, in some amount, below the
ground in the properties within the class area.  Since the opinion
that Johnson Controls moved to strike is not one that the
Plaintiffs offered in support of certification, the Judge holds he
needs not rule on the merits of the motion.

The Plaintiffs have filed three motions to strike.  One seeks to
strike a declaration by defense counsel's paralegal, who they
characterize as offering expert opinions.  The two motions seek to
strike the opinions and affidavits of Johnson Controls' two
retained experts.  Again, the Judge needs not resolve those
motions.  Even accepting the evidence the Plaintiffs offer in
support of class certification, they have not met their burden of
establishing that any of the issues in question are appropriate for
class certification.  Thus, he needs not reach the evidence that
Johnson Controls has submitted to contradict the Plaintiffs'
assertions.  And for that same reason, he will deny the Plaintiffs'
motion for an evidentiary hearing, as no disputed issues of fact
would affect the outcome of the motion for class certification.

As to the motion for class certification, Judge DeGuilio finds that
the Plaintiffs have failed to meet their burden of showing that the
issues in question are appropriate for class certification under
the circumstances of the case.  As to several issues, the
Plaintiffs have defined the class so broadly, in an attempt to
sweep in as many class members as possible, that the issues they
propose for certification are not common to the members of that
class.  Other issues they propose are either insubstantial and
undisputed, or would stop short of resolving the relevant issue and
would have to be revisited on a class-member-by-class-member basis
in the subsequent proceedings.  Those issues thus would not drive
the resolution of any claims or meaningfully simplify the
individual trials.  

For these reasons, the Judge denied the motion for class
certification; (ii) granted in part and denied in part Johnson
Controls' motion to strike Dr. Keramida's opinion; and (iii) denied
the remaining motions to strike and the motion for an evidentiary
hearing.

KNORR-BREMSE AG: Agostini Sues Over Anti-poaching Policy
--------------------------------------------------------
Joann Agostini, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiffs, v. Knorr-Bremse AG, Knorr Brake Company, New
York Air Brake LLC, Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies
Corporation, and Faiveley Transport North America Inc., Defendants,
Case No. 18-cv-01206 (W.D. Pa., September 11, 2018), seeks to
recover damages and obtain injunctive relief for injuries caused
under Section 1 of the Sherman Act.

Defendants and their related subsidiaries are rail equipment used
in freight and passenger rail applications suppliers who are
alleged of restraining competition in the labor markets in which
they compete for employees. Defendants are each other's top
competitors for rail equipment, including for skilled employees.
However, rather than compete to attract the best employees by
offering more attractive salary and benefits packages to
prospective job seekers, they instead conspired to enter into a
series of agreements intended to circumvent competition for
employees and suppress wages and job opportunities, thus
suppressing compensation and potential new job opportunities and
restraining competition in the market for their employees'
services.

Plaintiff worked for Wabtec from October 2005 through April 2016
and claims that she could have earned more. [BN]

L'OREAL USA: Court Certifies Classes in Matrix Biolage Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the case, BRANDI PRICE, et al., Plaintiffs, v. L'OREAL USA,
INC., et al., Defendants, Case No. 17 Civ. 614 (LGS) (S.D. N.Y.),
Judge Lorna G. Schofield of the U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of New York granted in part and denied in part
the Plaintiffs' motion for class certification under Federal Rule
of Civil Procedure 23(b)(3).

The Plaintiffs bring the putative consumer class action against the
Defendants.  The Plaintiffs seek to bring fraud and unjust
enrichment claims on behalf of a nationwide class; and breach of
contract and warranty, and consumer protection claims on behalf of
New York and California classes under the laws of those states.

In February 2013, the Defendants launched a haircare product line
called Matrix Biolage Advanced Keratindose Pro-Keratin + Silk.
This product line comprises three products: Matrix Biolage Advanced
Keratin + Silk Shampoo, Pro-Keratin + Silk Conditioner and
Pro-Keratin + Silk Renewal Spray ("Challenged Products").  The
names of the Products ("Challenged Claims") are featured
prominently on the Product labels, and have not changed since the
launch of the Products.  The only material change to the Products
or their packaging since their inception was an alteration of the
shape and size of the shampoo and conditioner bottles in late 2014
or early 2015.  

The Plaintiffs are purchasers of the Products who assert that the
Challenged Claims would lead reasonable consumers to believe that
they contain keratin, when in fact they do not.  Each Product is
typically priced at just over $20.  Although the Defendants set a
wholesale price and a manufacturer's suggested retail price, they
have no control over the prices that retailers charge consumers for
the Products.  The Plaintiffs assert that all consumers who
purchased the Products paid a price premium due to the Defendants'
purported misrepresentations on the Product labels.

The Defendants deny that the Challenged Claims are misleading and
that they had any effect on the pricing of the Products.

The Plaintiffs move to certify the following classes under Federal
Rule of Civil Procedure 23(b)(3):

     i. Nationwide Class: All persons in the United States and its
territories who purchased Matrix Biolage Advanced Keratindose
Pro-Keratin + Silk Shampoo, Pro-Keratin + Silk Conditioner, and/or
Pro-Keratin + Silk Renewal Spray between Jan. 26, 2013 and the
present;

     ii. New York Class: All persons who reside in the state of New
York and purchased Matrix Biolage Advanced Keratindose Pro-Keratin
+ Silk Shampoo, Pro-Keratin + Silk Conditioner, and/or Pro-Keratin
+ Silk Renewal Spray between Jan. 26, 2013 and the present; and

     iii. California Class: All persons who reside in the state of
California and purchased Matrix Biolage Advanced Keratindose
Pro-Keratin + Silk Shampoo, Pro-Keratin + Silk Conditioner, and/or
Pro-Keratin + Silk Renewal Spray between Jan. 26, 2013 and the
present.

Judge Schofield granted in part and denied in part the Plaintiffs'
motion for class certification under Federal Rule of Civil
Procedure 23(b)(3).   She denied the motion to certify the
Nationwide Class.  She granted in part and denied in part the
motion to certify the New York Class as follows:

     a. The New York Class is defined as all persons who reside in
the state of New York and purchased Matrix Biolage Advanced
Keratindose Pro-Keratin + Silk Shampoo, Pro-Keratin + Silk
Conditioner, and/or Pro-Keratin + Silk Renewal Spray between Jan.
26, 2013 and the present.

     b. The New York Class is certified only as to Count IX (New
York GBL Section 349) and the Breach of Contract claim under Count
II (not the alternative claim for Breach of Common Law Warranty).

     c. Plaintiff Price is appointed as the class representative
for the New York Class.

The Judge granted in part and denied in part the motion to certify
the California Class as follows:

     a. The California Class is defined as all persons who reside
in the state of California and purchased Matrix Biolage Advanced
Keratindose Pro-Keratin + Silk Shampoo, Pro-Keratin + Silk
Conditioner, and/or Pro-Keratin + Silk Renewal Spray between Jan.
26, 2013 and the present.

     b. The California Class is certified only as to Counts III
(Express Warranty), VI (California UCL, Unfair Business Acts and
Practices Prong), VII (California UCL Fraudulent Business Acts and
Practices Prong), VIII (California UCL, Unlawful Prong), and X
(California FAL).

     c. Plaintiff Chadwick is appointed as the class representative
for the California Class.

Morgan & Morgan; Barbat, Mansour & Suciu PLLC; Greg Coleman Law;
Sommers Schwartz P.C.; and JTB Law Group, LLC are appointed as the
co-class counsel.

By September 5, 2018, Plaintiffs shall, after conferring with the
Defendants, provide the Court with a joint proposed notice as
required by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(c)(2), and explain
how they propose that notice will be made.  The Clerk of Court is
respectfully directed to close the motion and Docket No. 146.

MERCHANTS MUTUAL: MSP Recovery Seeks Reimbursement for Payments
---------------------------------------------------------------
MSP Recovery Claims, Series LLC, Plaintiff, v. Merchants Mutual
Insurance Company, Merchants National Insurance Company and
Merchants Preferred Insurance Company, Defendants, Case No.
18-cv-08030 (S.D. N.Y., September 4, 2018) seeks double damages
under the MSP Law for Defendant's failure to properly reimburse
conditional payments for enrollees' accident-related medical
expenses.

MSP claims reimbursement of medical expenses of Merchants Mutual
policyholders who were also Medicare beneficiaries.

Plaintiff is a Medicare Advantage Organization that provides
Medicare benefits to Medicare-eligible beneficiaries enrolled under
the Medicare Advantage program. These Medicare beneficiaries were
simultaneously covered by insurance policies issued by Defendants,
which made Defendants the primary payers for the medical bills,
services, and items paid by Plaintiffs and the Class Members. The
Plaintiffs paid for the medical items or treatment even though the
Defendants were responsible for paying those expenses under their
no-fault insurance policies and the Medicare Secondary Payer
provisions of Medicare, says the complaint. [BN]

zoster and shortly after, she suffered from a severe right facial
nerve axonopathy and was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy.

Merck & Co., Inc. is pharmaceutical company existing under the laws
of the State of New Jersey with its principal place of business

RFI ENTERPRISES: Peters Labor Suit Remanded to State Court
----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Beth Labson Freeman of the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of California, San Jose Division, granted Peters'
motion to remand the case, BRIAN PETERS, Plaintiff, v. RFI
ENTERPRISES, INC., Defendant, Case No. 18-cv-01187-BLF (N.D. Cal.),
to the Santa Clara County Superior Court.

On Jan. 12, 2018, Peters, a former employee of Defendant RFI, filed
a Class Action Complaint in Superior Court of the State of
California, Santa Clara County.  In his complaint, he alleges that
RFI violated several California laws by (a) failing to correctly
calculate the regular rate of pay for employees, leading to
incorrect overtime payments; (b) failing to provide proper payroll
records; and (c) engaging in unfair business practices.

Peters was a non-exempt employee at RFI's location in San Jose,
California.  Throughout Peters' employment, RFI failed to pay him
and certain other non-exempt employees overtime wages at the
correct rate of pay by failing to include certain non-discretionary
wages in the calculation of the regular rate of pay, which is used
in turn to calculate overtime wages.  Moreover, because of this
miscalculation, employees' itemized wage statements were
inaccurate. These violations, he claims, also constituted unfair
and unlawful business practices.

Peters filed a state court complaint asserting three causes of
action for violations of the following laws: (1) Labor Code
Sections 510, 558, and 1194, for failure to correctly calculate the
regular rate of pay, and in turn, overtime wages; (2) Labor Code
Section 226(a), for failure to provide proper payroll records; and
(3) California Business and Professions Code Section 17200, et
seq., for unlawful and unfair business practices.

On Feb. 20, 2018, RFI filed its answer, in which it asserts a
general denial and seven affirmative defenses, two of which are
relevant in the instant motion.  In its third affirmative defense,
RFI alleges that Peters' claims are preempted by Section 301 of the
Federal Labor Management Relations Act ("LMRA").  In its Notice of
Removal, it alleges that, during the relevant time period, Peters
and RFI's other non-exempt employees were subject to a valid
collective bargaining agreement ("CBA").  Peters does not mention
this CBA in his complaint.  In its second affirmative defense, RFI
alleges that the CBA exempted Peters under Labor Code Section 514
from California's overtime requirements.

On Feb. 23, 2018, RFI removed the case to the Court based on
federal question jurisdiction, claiming that the Plaintiff's claims
under California law are preempted under Section 301 of the LMRA].
Peters now moves to remand, arguing that there is no federal
question jurisdiction.

Having carefully considered the submitted papers, Judge Freeman
granted Peters' motion and remanded the action to state court.  

The Judge agrees with the overwhelming majority of courts to decide
the issue and finds that RFI's invocation of the Section 514
exemption as an affirmative defense does not change the legal
character of Peters' state-law claim.  She thus holds that RFI
fails to satisfy the first Burnside step.  RFI also fails to
demonstrate that LMRA Section 301 preempts Peters' state-law claim
under Section 510, such that the claim cannot serve as the basis
for federal question jurisdiction.

For the foregoing reasons, Judge Freeman concludes that RFI has not
met its burden to establish that removal is proper.  The Clerk will
remand the case to Santa Clara County Superior Court.  All other
matters are terminated and vacated, and the Clerk will close the
file.

ROCKWELL MEDICAL: Spock Files Suit Over Share Price Drop

Robert Spock, Individually and on behalf of all others similarly

and Thomas E. Klema, Defendants (E.D. N.Y., September 4, 2018),
seeks to recover damages caused by violations of federal securities
laws and to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the

Rockwell operates as an integrated biopharmaceutical company

controls over financial reporting; and its internal controls over
financial reporting were ineffective. On this news, Rockwell's
stock price fell $0.85 per share, or over 16%, over two consecutive

investors, including the Plaintiff. [BN]

Greenberg, John Vandemore and David Weinberg, Defendants, Case No.

remedies under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Skechers designs and markets branded footwear for men, women, and

relying on expensive, third-party operational solutions to drive
its sales growth, it adds.

closing price of $33.25 per share on July 19, 2018, to $26.27 per
share on April 20, 2018, wiping out an additional $947 million in
