AIR INDUSTRIES: Faces Kishmoian Securities Suit in New York
-----------------------------------------------------------
MICHAEL KISHMOIAN, Individually and On Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated v. AIR INDUSTRIES GROUP, MICHAEL N. TAGLICH,
ROBERT F. TAGLICH, PETER D. RETTALIATA, SEYMOUR G. SIEGEL, DAVID J.
BUONANNO, ROBERT C. SCHROEDER AND MICHAEL BRAND, Case No.
2:18-cv-05757-JFB-ARL (E.D.N.Y., October 15, 2018), seeks to remedy
the alleged false and misleading disclosures made by the Defendants
in the Company's proxy statement related to its 2017 annual meeting
of stockholders because those disclosures violated federal
securities laws.

On August 24, 2017, the Company filed a Schedule 14A Proxy
Statement with the SEC for the Annual Meeting.  In the Proxy, the
Board asked stockholders of Air Industries to approve an amendment
(the "Amendment") to the Company's Articles of Incorporation to
increase the number of authorized common stock from 25 million to
50 million (the "Share Increase Proposal").  The Proxy
affirmatively represented that brokers could not vote shares that
they held on behalf of someone else in connection with the Share
Increase Proposal unless that party directed the brokers how to
vote. However, in truth, the brokers had discretion to cast votes
without any instructions from the actual stockholders, and the
Company counted broker non-votes as affirmative votes, the
Plaintiff asserts.

Air Industries is a Nevada corporation with its principal executive
offices located in Hauppauge, New York.  The Individual Defendants
are directors and officers of the Company.

Air Industries is an aerospace company operating primarily in the
defense industry, as well as in the commercial and industrial
sector.  The Company manufactures and designs structural parts and
assemblies that focus on flight safety, including landing gear,
arresting gear, engine mounts, flight controls, throttle quadrants,
and other components.[BN]

ALPHABET INC: Pomerantz Law Firm Files Securities Class Action
--------------------------------------------------------------
Pomerantz LLP disclosed that a class action lawsuit has been filed
against Alphabet, Inc. ("Alphabet" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: GOOG)
and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United
States District Court, Northern District of California, and index
under 18-cv-06245, is on behalf of a class consisting of all
persons and entities, other than Defendants and their affiliates,
who purchased or otherwise acquired common shares of Alphabet
between April 23, 2018 and October 7, 2018, both dates inclusive
(the "Class Period"). Plaintiff seeks to recover compensable
damages caused by Defendants' violations of the federal securities
laws and to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act") and Rule 10b-5
promulgated thereunder.

If you are a shareholder who purchased Alphabet securities between
April 23, 2018, and October 7, 2018, both dates inclusive, you have
until December 10, 2018, to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead
Plaintiff for the class. A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at
www.pomerantzlaw.com. To discuss this action, contact Robert S.
Willoughby at rswilloughby@pomlaw.com or 888.476.6529 (or
888.4-POMLAW), toll-free, Ext. 9980. Those who inquire by e-mail
are encouraged to include their mailing address, telephone number,
and the number of shares purchased.

Alphabet was incorporated in 2015 and is the parent company of its
leading subsidiary Google Inc. ("Google"), among others. Google was
founded in 1998. Alphabet and Google are headquartered in Mountain
View, California.

Alphabet, through its subsidiary Google, operates a social
networking website called "Google+" that allows people to
communicate with their family, friends, and coworkers. Google+
users ostensibly have the ability to share and restrict the sharing
of personal information according to their preferences by changing
privacy settings.

Between 2015 and March 2018, a software glitch in the Google+
website permitted outside developers to access the personal profile
data of Google+ members who had not opted to permit their data to
be shared publicly. Defendants discovered this glitch in March
2018, ran tests to determine the impact of the glitch, and
determined that the data of nearly half of a million users had been
exposed to third parties. Google's legal and policy staff drafted a
memorandum regarding the security failure and shared it with senior
executives. The memorandum warned that disclosing the incident
would likely trigger "immediate regulatory interest." Google's CEO,
Defendant Pichai, was briefed on the plan not to notify users after
an internal committee had reached that decision.

Throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and
misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational
and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or
misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the
Company's security measures had failed recently and massively, as
Google had exposed the private data of hundreds of thousands of
users of Google+ to third parties; (2) damage to the Company's
reputation and operating results and loss of customers from this
failure of the Company's security measures were imminent and
inevitable; (3) the Company's security protections did not shield
personal user data against theft and security breaches; and (4) the
Company's security measures had been breached due to employee
error, malfeasance, system errors or vulnerabilities.

On October 8, 2018, citing "people briefed on the incident and
documents reviewed," The Wall Street Journal reported that in March
2018, Google discovered a software glitch in its Google+ social
network that had exposed users' personal data to third parties, but
"opted not to disclose the issue. . . in part because of fears that
doing so would draw regulatory scrutiny and cause reputational
damage." Following this news, Google's stock price fell $67.75 per
share, or 5.9%, over the following two trading sessions, to close
at $1,081.22 per share on October 10, 2018.

ALTICE USA: Stull Stull Files Securities Class Action Suit
----------------------------------------------------------
Stull, Stull & Brody ("SS&B") disclosed that a class action lawsuit
has been filed on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Altice
USA ("Altice" or the "Company") (NYSE:ATUS), pursuant and/or
traceable to the Company’s June 22, 2017 initial public offering
("IPO").

The investigation concerns whether Altice's filings with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the IPO
contained untrue statements of material fact or omitted material
information. Altice's share price had fallen more than 40% from its
IPO price of $30, thereby injuring investors.

pursuant and/or traceable to the IPO may contact Stull, Stull &

notice of this lawsuit to potential class members so they may be
notified of their right to participate in this suit; (2) direct the

APPLIED OPTOELECTRONICS: Gainey McKenna Files Securities Lawsuit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Gainey McKenna & Egleston disclosed that a class action lawsuit has
been filed against Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. ("Applied
Optoelectronics" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: AAOI) in the United
States District Court for the Southern District of Texas on behalf
of a class consisting of investors who purchased or otherwise
acquired Applied Optoelectronics securities between August 7, 2018
through September 27, 2018, both dates inclusive (the "Class
Period"), seeking to recover damages caused by Defendants’
violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue remedies
under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934 (the "Exchange Act") and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. develops and manufactures advanced
optical products which are the building blocks for broadband and
fiber access networks primarily for Internet data center, cable
television (CATV), and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networking
end-market.

Furthermore, there is another class action lawsuit pending against
the Company which was filed in 2017. The amended complaint in that
lawsuit also alleges that the Company made false and misleading
statements to the market and asserts a class period for investors
who purchased or otherwise acquired Applied Optoelectronics
securities between February 23, 2017 and February 21, 2018, both
dates inclusive.

The Complaint in the class action lawsuit which was just recently
filed alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made
materially false and misleading statements regarding the
Company’s business, operational and compliance policies.
Specifically, the Complaint alleges that Defendants made false
and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i)
certain of the Company’s lasers were susceptible to fail
prematurely; (ii) certain of the Company’s transceivers utilizing
these lasers would be materially affected; and (iii) as a result of
the foregoing, Optoelectronics’ public statements were materially
false and misleading at all relevant times.  

On September 27, 2018, an analyst with Loop Capital Markets
downgraded the Company’s stock, reporting that the Company was
experiencing product quality issues with certain transceivers in
which its lasers fail after thousands of hours of operation. The
analyst also lowered gross margin and revenue expectations because
the product quality issues suggested that the Company would start
procuring lasers externally through 2019.

On this news, the Company's stock price fell $2.98 per share, or
more than 9%, to close at $28.36 per share on September 27, 2018,
on unusually heavy trading volume.

Investors who purchased or otherwise acquired shares during the
Class Period should contact the Firm prior to the November 30, 2018
lead plaintiff motion deadline.  A lead plaintiff is a
representative party acting on behalf of other class members in
directing the litigation.  If you wish to discuss your rights or
interests regarding this class action please;

ARNOLD CROSSROADS: Sued by Nekouee for Violating Disabilities Act
-----------------------------------------------------------------
FRED NEKOUEE, individually v. ARNOLD CROSSROADS, LLC, a Missouri
limited liability company; SPECIALTY RETAILERS, INC., a Texas

AUTOLIV INC: Bid to Dismiss Insurer's Suit Granted in Part
----------------------------------------------------------
Autoliv, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on October 26, 2018, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2018, that the defendants'
motion to dismiss the antitrust lawsuit filed by the insurer who
opted out of the end-payor class settlement, has been granted in
part and denied in part.

The Company is subject to civil litigation alleging
anti-competitive conduct in the U.S. and Canada. Specifically, the
Company, several of its subsidiaries and its competitors were named
as defendants in a total of nineteen purported antitrust class
action lawsuits filed between June 2012 and June 2015. Fifteen of
these lawsuits were filed in the U.S. and were consolidated in the
Occupant Safety Systems (OSS) segment of the Automobile Parts
Antitrust Litigation, a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) proceeding
in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
Michigan. Plaintiffs in the U.S. cases sought to represent four
purported classes - direct purchasers, auto dealers, end-payors,
and truck and equipment dealers who purchased in the U.S. occupant
safety systems or components directly from a defendant, indirectly
through purchases or leases of new vehicles containing such
systems, or through purchases of replacement parts.

In May 2014, the Company, without admitting any liability, entered
into separate settlement agreements with the direct purchasers,
auto dealers, end-payors plaintiff classes, which were granted
final approval by the MDL court in 2015 and 2016. The total
settlement amount of $65 million (later reduced to approximately
$60.5 million as a result of opt-outs from the direct purchaser
settlement) was expensed in 2014.

n April 2016, the Company entered into a settlement agreement with
the truck and equipment dealers' class, which was granted final
approval by the MDL court in 2016, for an amount that is immaterial
to the Company's results of operations. The class settlements do
not resolve any claims of settlement class members who opt-out of
the settlements or the unasserted claims of any purchasers of
occupant safety systems who are not otherwise included in a
settlement class, such as states and municipalities.

Two direct purchasers opted out of the Company's direct purchaser
class settlement and several individuals and one insurer (and its
affiliated entities) opted-out of the end-payor class settlements,
including the Company's settlement.

In September 2016, the insurer (and its affiliated entities) that
opted out of the end-payor class settlement filed an antitrust
lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern
District of Michigan, the venue for the MDL, against the Company
and the other settling defendants in the end-payor class
settlements. The defendants' motion to dismiss the complaint on
various grounds was granted in part and denied in part in August
2018.

Autoliv said, "The Company understands that the insurer may attempt
to correct the pleading deficiencies identified in the Court's
decision. The Company cannot predict or estimate the duration or
ultimate outcome of this matter."

In March 2015, the Company, without admitting any liability,
reached agreements regarding additional settlements to resolve
certain direct purchasers' global (including U.S.) or non-U.S.
antitrust claims that were not covered by the direct purchaser
class settlement. The total amount of these additional settlements
was $81 million. Autoliv expensed during the first quarter of 2015
approximately $77 million as a result of these additional
settlements, net of existing amounts that had been accrued in
2014.

The remaining four antitrust class action lawsuits were filed in
Canada (Sheridan Chevrolet Cadillac Ltd. et al. v. Autoliv, Inc. et
al., filed in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice on January 18,
2013; M. Serge Asselin v. Autoliv, Inc. et al., filed in the
Superior Court of Quebec on March 14, 2013; Ewert v. Autoliv, Inc.
et al., filed in the Supreme Court of British Columbia on July 18,
2013; and Cindy Retallick and Jagjeet Singh Rajput v. Autoliv ASP,
Inc. et al., filed in the Queen's Bench of the Judicial Center of
Regina in the province of Saskatchewan on May 14, 2014) asserting
claims on behalf of putative classes of both direct and indirect
purchasers of occupant safety systems. In February 2017, the
Company entered into, and the courts subsequently approved, a
settlement agreement with plaintiffs in three of the four class
actions to settle on a nationwide class basis for an amount that is
not material to the Company's results of operations. Settlement
amounts were accrued for this matter during the period ended
December 31, 2016 and final payment of the accrued amounts was made
in 2017. This national settlement includes the claims of the
putative members of the fourth class action.

Autoliv, Inc., through its subsidiaries, develops, manufactures,
and supplies automotive safety systems to the automotive industry
worldwide. The company operates through two segments, Passive
Safety and Electronics. The company was founded in 1953 and is
headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden.


AXIS INSURANCE: Yadegar's Bid to Certify Nixed Due to Settlement
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Philip S. Gutierrez terminates the Plaintiff's motion
for class certification in the lawsuit captioned Yadegar, Minoofar
& Soleymani LLP v. Axis Insurance Company, et al., Case No.
2:17-cv-05830-PSG-AS (C.D. Cal.).

On October 15, 2018, the parties filed a notice of settlement,
informing the Court that they intend to stipulate to dismissal of
the claims in this case after the settlement terms have been
finalized, according to the Court's civil minutes.  As part of that
notice, Plaintiff Yadegar, Minoofar & Soleymani LLP withdrew its
motion for class certification.

Accordingly, the Court terminates Plaintiff's motion for class
certification and the hearing set for October 22, 2018, was
vacated.[CC]

CELADON GROUP: Investors Agree to Settle Class Suit For $5.5MM
--------------------------------------------------------------
Indianapolis Business Journal reports that a group of Celadon Group
Inc. investors has agreed to settle its class-action lawsuit
against the Indianapolis-based trucking company for $5.5 million,
saying the recovery might be the best it can hope for considering
the firm's "uncertain" financial future.    

The settlement, which is awaiting approval from a New York federal
judge, would resolve suits brought by several parties over
financial-reporting issues that have plagued Celadon for at least
four years.

If approved, Celadon's insurer would pay $5.5 million in cash into
a settlement fund that would be distributed to a class of investors
that acquired Celadon stock between Oct. 29, 2013, and April 13,
2018.

According to court papers filed earlier this month, lead plaintiffs
Greater Pennsylvania Carpenters’ Pension Fund and Arkansas
Teacher Retirement System agreed to the settlement on behalf of
themselves and the other members of the settlement class.

The plaintiffs said the settlement was "the best option" available
and would provide "a meaningful recovery." They also expressed
concern that taking the trucking company to trial would deplete any
funds Celadon has "available to pay a significant judgment."

In fact, the plaintiffs said, "there appears to be significant risk
that the company will go bankrupt."

In an email, Thom Albrecht, Celadon's chief financial officer and
chief strategy officer, said "Celadon continues to tackle problems
and resolve issues from its past." He declined further comment.

The trucking firm was first sued in early 2017 by investor Denis
Chavez, who alleged the firm was misleading shareholders about its
financial status and covering up a U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission investigation into the company.

The defendants named in the suit include Celadon and two now-former
executives: CEO and President Paul Will and Chief Financial Officer
Bobby Peavler.

The Chavez suit eventually was consolidated with several other
lawsuits as part of a class action.

In May 2017, Celadon revealed that its auditor, BKD LLP, had raised
questions about a complicated joint-venture arrangement that
involved the sale of leased equipment. As a result, the company
said at the time, its last 18 months of financial statements should
not be relied upon. Celadon’s board hired outside firms to review
the statements.

After an internal probe and an executive-suite housecleaning,
Celadon officials admitted in April that their financial-reporting
issues were much older and deeper than they realized. The firm said
the problems are so extensive that it wouldn't be able to resolve
them in time to avoid being delisted from the New York Stock
Exchange.

It also said it likely overstated some of its earnings by as much
as $250 million during a three-year period that ended in 2016.

The company now sells shares on the over-the-counter exchange.
Share traded on October12 morning at $2.62 each, down from the
mid-20s in 2015.

The firm admitted it was under a federal investigation earlier this
year. [GN]

COCRYSTAL PHARMA: Howard G. Smith Files Securities Fraud Lawsuit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Law Offices of Howard G. Smith disclosed that a class action
lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased
Cocrystal Pharma, Inc. ("Cocrystal" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:
COCP) securities between September 23, 2013 and September 7, 2018,
inclusive (the "Class Period"). Cocrystal investors have until
November 19, 2018 to file a lead plaintiff motion.
Investors that suffered losses on their Cocrystal investments are
encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss
their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email
to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

On or around March 12, 2018, BioZone Pharmaceuticals, Inc. changed
its name to Cocrystal Pharma, Inc. And, on September 7, 2018, the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filed a lawsuit
against former officers of BioZone as well as other individuals and
corporations, alleging violations of the federal securities laws.
The SEC complaint alleges that defendants were participants in
"highly profitable 'pump-and-dump' schemes . . . from 2013 through
2018" in the stock of three public companies, including BioZone,
that, "while enriching Defendants by millions of dollars, left
retail investors holding virtually worthless shares." On this news,
Cocrystal's share price fell more than 14%, to close at $3.20 on
September 7, 2018, thereby injuring investors.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants
made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to
disclose that: (1) defendants were engaged in a pump-and-dump
scheme to artificially inflate Cocrystal's stock price; (2) this
illicit scheme would result in governmental scrutiny, including
from the SEC; (3) defendants failed to abide by SEC disclosure
regulations; and (4) as a result, defendants' statements about
Cocrystal's business, operations and prospects were materially
false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all
relevant times. When the true details entered the market, the
lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

If you purchased shares of Cocrystal during the Class Period, have
information or would like to learn more about these claims, or have
any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or
interests with respect to these matters please;

EDWARD JONES: Faces Lawsuit For Allegedly Gouging Clients
---------------------------------------------------------
Leif M. Wright, writing for Muskogee Now, reports that Edward
Jones, a brokerage company that boasts six Muskogee locations, is
facing a multimillion dollar class action lawsuit for allegedly
gouging customers by suggesting investment products that benefit
the company, rather than the clients.

The suit, filed in April, alleges that investors were charged
unnecessary fees in a "reverse churning" operation. The alleged
scheme moved mostly dormant accounts into a fee-based system, where
a commission-based model would have better served the clients, the
suit alleges. The fee-based programs were proprietary products that
the plaintiffs allege concealed the fact that they benefitted the
brokerage more than commission-based programs.

The plaintiffs, who describe themselves as "unsophisticated
investors," are bringing the case on behalf of a class of Edward
Jones clients who saw their commission-based accounts migrate to a
fee-based model from March 2013 through March 2018.

The plaintiffs allege the practice propelled a 36 percent increase
in the firm’s "asset-based fee revenue due to the increased
investment of client assets into advisory programs", including
$17.2 billion in fees. The firm earned record amounts of money in
the five years of the class period.

Edward Jones has acknowledged the suit and said it will "vigorously
defend" against it. [GN]

FACEBOOK INC: King et al. Sue over Massive Data Security Breach
---------------------------------------------------------------
REBECCA A. KING; DOMINIQUE MARTIN; RUBIN K. JOHNSON; and ROBERT E.
NEWBORN, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiffs v. FACEBOOK, INC., Defendant, Case No.
3:18-cv-06246-TSH (N.D. Cal., Oct. 11, 2018) is an action against
the Defendant for failure to maintain adequate security measures to
Facebook Users resulting in a massive data security breach.

According to the complaint, Facebook recently revealed that its
Users' personal information was subject to a massive data security
breach in September 2018, affecting approximately 50 million
Facebook Users' personal information. Facebook publicly exposed
details of the September 2018 Data Breach for the first time in a
statement on September 28, 2018. According to the statement and
subsequent press call, Facebook learned of the breach as early as
September 16, 2018, but has not yet directly informed or notified
Facebook Users that their personal information may be compromised
as a result of the breach. Rather, Facebook states that it began
"logging users out" on the evening of September 27, 2018, but did
not provide Users with any reason for being logged out.

The statement further admitted that "attackers exploited a
vulnerability in Facebook's code that impacted "View As" a feature
that lets people see what their own profile looks like to someone
else. This allowed them to steal Facebook access tokens which they
could then use to take over people's accounts. Access tokens are
the equivalent of digital keys that keep people logged in to
Facebook so they don't need to re-enter their password every time
they use the app." The vulnerability in Facebook's code was
introduced in July 2017, and Facebook is currently unaware of how
long hackers have had access since that time.

FRENZ & ZORBALAS: To Pay $18.5MM to Settle Tenants' Lawsuit
-----------------------------------------------------------
Randy Furst, writing for Star Tribune, reports that two Minneapolis
landlords who lost their rental licenses last year for committing
massive fraud have agreed to pay out $18.5 million to settle a
class-action lawsuit filed against them by their tenants.

The settlement, which was filed on October 12 and must still be
approved by Hennepin County Judge Mary Vasaly, covers 5,400 tenants
from 2012 to today, many of them low-income and members of minority
groups. It is the largest payout of its kind in Minnesota history.

It will net tenants up to $10,000 each, though the average will be
about $2,200 to be based on how long they rented from landlords
Stephen Frenz and Spiros Zorbalas and the amount they paid. Tenants
can opt out and pursue separate legal claims.

The tenants will receive $12 million and the remaining $6.5
million, if approved by Vasaly, will go to the Faegre Baker Daniels
law firm, which brought the suit, and to an administrator to be
appointed to disburse funds to tenants.

"If approved it will be the largest aggregate settlement in a
tenant related class action case in Minnesota history," said Larry
McDonough, Esq. -- mcdonough.lawrence@dorsey.com -- a housing
attorney for 35 years, who heads pro bono work for Dorsey & Whitney
law firm. He was not involved in the suit.

"Class action cases for tenants are exceedingly rare, because
individual claims are mostly quite a bit different," he said. "The
unifying factor here was the improper licensing for a lot of
tenants over a long period of time."

William Mohrman, Esq. -- mohrman@mklaw.com -- an attorney for Frenz
and Zorbalas, declined to comment.

Michael Cockson, Esq. -- michael.cockson@FaegreBD.com -- the
plaintiffs' lead attorney on the case that was certified in 2017,
said he was happy with the settlement and looking forward "to
working with the court as the process continues."

Frenz and Zorbalas were also accused in the lawsuit of substandard
conditions, including vermin infestations and heat and plumbing
problems.

Disputes over conditions in the Frenz and Zorbalas apartment
buildings stretch back for close to a decade.

Zorbalas was stripped of his licenses for more than 60 apartment
buildings by the Minneapolis City Council in 2011 for repeated
violations and prohibited from renting in the city for five years.

Frenz purchased Zorbalas' properties in 2012, promised to upgrade
them, and was hailed as a savior by city officials. However, within
months, tenants were complaining about conditions in the
buildings.

Inquilinxs Unidxs Por Justicia (United Renters for Justice), a
tenants rights group, found itself in a fight with Frenz over
bedbugs, rats and a lack of heat in an apartment building in south
Minneapolis during a bitter cold spell in January 2016.

The Faegre law firm took up the case pro bono in what looked to be
a minor suit in housing court.

Frenz tried to get the case thrown out by submitting an affidavit
and leases showing that the majority of tenants had not joined the
suit. The Faegre attorneys discovered the leases were phony.

Then the Faegre lawyers discovered Zorbalas still had a majority
financial interest in Frenz's apartments and that the two men
continued to operate the buildings together. It led the city to
revoke Frenz's rental licenses last December.

Several former tenants hailed the October 12 settlement.

"I think it's fantastic for many people who lived there because the
conditions in the building as a whole were bad," said Cottrell
Doss, 38.

"This victory isn't about the money, it is about justice," said
Edain Altamirano, 28, in a statement. "And this settlement is a
step toward the justice we want to see. Tenants will continue to
organize to hold landlords accountable and get what they deserve."

HOMEADVISOR INC: Motion for Preliminary Injunction Filed in Lawsuit
-------------------------------------------------------------------
On October 11, in a lawsuit begun in July, 2018 in the federal
district court in Denver against HomeAdvisor, Inc. ("HomeAdvisor"),
IAC/InterActiveCorp ("IAC"), and ANGI Homeservices Inc. ("ANGI"),
Chimicles & Tikellis LLP filed a Motion for Preliminary Injunction
and Declaratory Judgment ("Motion") against HomeAdvisor. The name
of the lawsuit is Costello et al., v. HomeAdvisor, Inc. et al.,
Case No. 1:18-cv-01802-WJM (D. Colo.).

The Motion seeks to halt HomeAdvisor's continued use of the
identities of its former Home Service Professionals ("Former HSPs")
and the maintenance of their Online Profile Pages on HomeAdvisor's
website. The Motion cites to the uniform experiences of not only
the named Plaintiffs in the suit but also the reported experiences
of more than a dozen other Former HSPs whose company names and
Online Profile Pages continue to be used by Home Advisor after the
Former HSPs terminated their relationship with Home Advisor as
evidenced by the fact that only 202,000 (of the 390,000) Online
Profile Pages are for current HSPs. The Motion asserts that
HomeAdvisor's exploitation of the Former HSPs is a cornerstone of
its business and that HomeAdvisor uses the following strategies,
which are alleged to be misleading, for the purpose of intercepting
and/or redirecting potential business opportunities from the Former
HSPs to convert them to purported job leads that are sold to
current HSPs:

The Online Profile Pages use a "Get a Quote" button, which it is
alleged misleads prospective customers into believing that they are
submitting a request for a quote directly to the Former HSP, when
they are not;There is an "alert" put on Former HSPs Online Profile
Pages, stating that, "This business is not a screened and approved
member of HA," which is alleged to be misleading the public about
the Former HSPs and confusing and causing the prospective customer
to alter its course with the Former HSP; andURLs reflecting the
name of Former HSPs, are retained by HomeAdvisor, and are
associated with webpages that state that the "page you are looking
for is no longer available," which, it is alleged, is done so as to
redirect away prospective customers who are affirmatively searching
to hire the Former HSPs.

The Motion contends that the alleged conduct violates federal law
against false advertising and state statutes that protect persons
like Former HSPs from unfair competition and deceptive business
practices. A copy of the Motion is available at www.chimicles.com.
If you are or were a HomeAdvisor HSP and are interested in
discussing your legal rights, and/or you have information relating
to this Motion, please contact Plaintiffs' counsel.

said. She and her husband live down the road from the plant. "They
had told us there had been a release; for us to turn off our air
conditioning, our heating, our HVAC; not to open any windows; not
to go outside."

Her husband has lived near the plant all his life. Chrisman has
since 2003. She says they would see plumes of gas above the plant.

"It would burn your lungs, burn your throat," she described. It's
odd, but many more people say they went through the same thing.

About 50 people showed up at the town hall. Most of them are
wanting to learn about the lawsuit and still trying to decide if
they should put their name down.

The lawsuit against Honeywell talks about contamination of the
land. The lawyers for the plaintiffs are now looking into
contamination that led to cancer.

"The real problem with radiation on your property is the health
risks," said Kevin Thompson, Esq. -- kevin@thompsonburton.com --
one of the lawyers with the class-action lawsuit. "As we go to more
and more homes, and do more and more tests, and talk to more and
more people, we see homes with multiple cancers in them."

"When you start to have health issues, you start to wonder . . .
animals start having health issues. You know, you really start to
wonder," Chrisman said.

Honeywell stopped production in December 2017. They produce uranium
hexafluoride, a compound used in nuclear power plants and weapons.

The discovery process starts for the case now. Lawyers with the
plaintiff's say they should be getting documents from Honeywell
within the next few months.

A Honeywell spokesperson sent this statement on the lawsuit.

"Honeywell is committed to the safety of our facilities and the
communities in which they reside. The Metropolis plant is highly
regulated by both the NRC and the EPA.  Honeywell has filed a
motion to dismiss the complaint under the Price Anderson Act, which
governs nuclear facilities. That motion is currently pending before
the Court. We believe this lawsuit is without merit, and we will
defend ourselves vigorously." [GN]

INOVALON HOLDINGS: Seeks 2nd Cir. Review of Order in Xiang Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Defendants Inovalon Holdings, Inc., et al., filed an appeal from a
court ruling in the lawsuit titled Xiang, et al. v. Inovalon
Holdings, Inc., et al., Case No. 16-cv-4923, in the U.S. District
Court for the Southern District of New York (New York City).

The Defendants-Petitioners are Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Keith
R. Dunleavy, Denise K. Fletcher, Goldman Sachs & Co., Andre S.
Hoffmann, Inovalon Holdings, Inc., Thomas R. Kloster, Merrill
Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith, Incorporated, Morgan Stanley & Co.
LLC, Lee D. Roberts, William J. Teuber, Jr., and UBS Securities
LLC.

The appellate case is captioned as Xiang, et al. v. Inovalon
Holdings, Inc., et al., Case No. 18-2910, in the United States
Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, on June 24,
2016, a purported securities class action complaint (Xiang v.
Inovalon Holdings, Inc., et al., No. 1:16-cv-04923) was filed in
the District Court against the Company, certain officers, directors
and underwriters in the Company's initial public offering.  The
Complaint was brought on behalf of a purported class consisting of
all persons or entities, who purchased shares of the Company's
Class A common stock pursuant or traceable to the Registration
Statement relating to the Company's initial public offering on
February 18, 2015.  The Complaint asserted violations of Sections
11 and 15 of the Securities Act based on allegedly false or
misleading statements and omissions with respect to, among other
things, the Company's revenues from sales in the city and state of
New York and the Company's effective tax rate.  The Complaint
sought certification as a class action and unspecified compensatory
damages plus interest and attorneys' fees.

On June 28, 2016, a nearly identical complaint was filed in the
same court entitled Patel v. Inovalon Holdings, Inc., et al., No.
1:16-cv-05065.  On July 5, 2016, the District Court consolidated
the Xiang and Patel actions.  On September 20, 2016, the District
Court appointed a lead plaintiff and lead counsel.

On December 21, 2016, the Lead Plaintiff filed a consolidated class
action complaint (the "Amended Complaint") purporting to assert
violations of Sections 11, 12(a)(2), and 15 of the Securities Act
of 1933, as amended, based on allegedly false or misleading
statements and omissions with respect to substantially the same
topics as alleged in the Complaint.[BN]

JETBLUE AIRWAYS: Faces Class Action Suit Over Travel Insurance
--------------------------------------------------------------
Sandra Lane, writing for Florida Record, reports that a Florida
woman recently filed a class action suit against JetBlue Airways
claiming deceptive trade practices and unjust enrichment regarding
the airline's sale of travel insurance.

Milita Barbara Dolan filed the suit Sept. 17 on behalf of herself
and others in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of
Florida. The complaint goes into detail about the step-by-step
process for buying a ticket on JetBlue.  

As stated in the petition, "There is no way to purchase a ticket on
JetBlue's website without making an election regarding trip
insurance. This marketing is intended to create the impression that
the trip insurance is in the consumer's best interest -- while
hiding the fact that JetBlue is pushing the product because it is
in its financial interest to generate sales."

Plaintiff further states that JetBlue says that trip insurance is
in the best interests of the consumer and makes no effort to reveal
what the monetary reward for JetBlue may be.  As an example, the
suit cites a paragraph on the JetBlue website that says,
"Recommended by AGA Service Company, the licensed producer and
administrator of this plan. Terms, conditions and exclusions apply,
learn more. Plan underwritten by Jefferson Insurance Company or BCS
Insurance Company." There is no mention of JetBlue's financial
interest in their customers' purchase of trip insurance, the suit
claims.

The suit requests "certification of the class, a jury trial and
judgment against JetBlue in addition to an order requiring JetBlue
to make full disclosure to consumers of its receipt or retention of
trip insurance premiums sold on its website and the amount of the
kickback it retains or receives."

Other relief requested includes costs of the suit, attorneys' fees,
damages to be determined at trial, pre- and post- judgment
interest, and "restitution of the amount JetBlue was enriched as a
result of the wrongs alleged herein, in an amount to be determined
at trial."

Legal counsel for the plaintiff is listed in the complaint as Scott
B. Cosgrove, Esq. -- scosgrove@leoncosgrove.com -- Alec H. Schultz,
Esq. -- aschultz@leoncosgrove.com --
John R. Byrne, Esq. -- jbyrne@leoncosgrove.com -- and Jeremy L.

MDL 2741: Davis vs. Monsanto over Herbicide Roundup Consolidated
----------------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled JOHN C. DAVIS, the Plaintiffs, v.
MONSANTO COMPANY, Defendant, Case No. 4:18-cv-01651, was
transferred from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District
of Missouri, to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District
of California (San Francisco) on Oct. 24, 2018. The Northern
District of California Court Clerk assigned Case No.
3:18-cv-06493-VC  to the proceeding.

This is an action for damages suffered by Plaintiffs as a direct
and proximate result of Defendant negligent and wrongful conduct in
connection with the design, development, manufacture, testing,
packaging, promoting, marketing, advertising, distribution,
labeling, and/or sale of the herbicide Roundup (TM), containing the
active ingredient glyphosate.

The Davis case is being consolidated with MDL 2741 in re: Roundup
Products Liability Litigation. The MDL was created by Order of the
United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on October
3, 2016. These actions share common factual questions arising out
of allegations that Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, particularly its
active ingredient, glyphosate, causes non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Plaintiffs each allege that they or their decedents developed
non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after using Roundup over the course of
several or more years. Plaintiffs also allege that the use of
glyphosate in conjunction with other ingredients, in particular the
surfactant polyethoxylated tallow amine (POEA), renders Roundup
even more toxic than glyphosate on its own. Issues concerning
general causation, the background science, and regulatory history
will be common to all actions.

MDL 2741: Martinez vs Monsanto over Herbicide Roundup Consolidated
------------------------------------------------------------------
The class action lawsuit titled ADRIANNE MARTINEZ, the Plaintiffs,
v. MONSANTO COMPANY, Defendant, Case No. 4:18-cv-01645, was
transferred from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District
of Missouri, to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District
of California (San Francisco) on Oct. 24, 2018. The Northern
District of California Court Clerk assigned Case No.
3:18-cv-06492-VC to the proceeding.

This is an action for damages suffered by Plaintiffs as a direct
and proximate result of Defendant negligent and wrongful conduct in
connection with the design, development, manufacture, testing,
packaging, promoting, marketing, advertising, distribution,
labeling, and/or sale of the herbicide Roundup (TM), containing the
active ingredient glyphosate.

The Martinez case is being consolidated with MDL 2741 in re:
Roundup Products Liability Litigation. The MDL was created by Order
of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on
October 3, 2016. These actions share common factual questions
arising out of allegations that Monsanto's Roundup herbicide,
particularly its active ingredient, glyphosate, causes
non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Plaintiffs each allege that they or their
decedents developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after using Roundup over
the course of several or more years. Plaintiffs also allege that
the use of glyphosate in conjunction with other ingredients, in
particular the surfactant polyethoxylated tallow amine (POEA),
renders Roundup even more toxic than glyphosate on its own. Issues
concerning general causation, the background science, and
regulatory history will be common to all actions.

In its October 3, 2016 Order, the MDL Panel found that the actions

MDL 2862: C.U.E. Inc. Suit over Isocyanate Sales Consolidated
-------------------------------------------------------------
C.U.E., INC., individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, vs. BASF AG; BASF CORP.; BAYER AG; BAYER
CORP., COVESTRO AG; COVESTRO LLC; DOWDUPONT INC.; DOW CHEMICAL CO.;
HUNTSMAN CORP.; HUNTSMAN INTERNATIONAL LLC.; LANXESS AG, LANXESS
CO.; MCNS POLYURETHANES USA INC.; MITSUI CHEMICALS, INC.; MITSUI
CHEMICALS AMERICA, INC.; MITSUI CHEMICALS & SKC POLYURETHANES,
INC.; WANHUA CHEMICAL GROUP CO., LTD.; WANHUA CHEMICAL (AMERICA)
CO. LTD.; WANHUA CHEMICAL US HOLDING, INC., the Defendants, Case
No.: 2:18-cv-11439, was transferred from the U.S. District Court
for the the District ofNew Jersey, to the U.S. District Court
Western District of Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh) on Oct. 24, 2018. The
Western District of Pennsylvania Court Clerk assigned Case No.
2:18-cv-01422-DWA-LPL to the proceeding. The case is assigned to
the Hon. Judge Donetta W. Ambrose.

The case is being consolidated with MDL 2862 in re: DIISOCYANATES
ANTITRUST LITIGATION. The MDL was created by Order of the United
States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on Oct. 3, 2018.
The MDL Panel find that these actions involve common questions of
fact, and that centralization will serve the convenience of the
parties and witnesses and promote the just and efficient conduct of
this litigation. All actions share complex factual questions
arising from allegations that defendants engaged in a conspiracy to
fix, raise, maintain, or stabilize the price of methylene diphenyl
diisocyanate (MDI) and toluene diisocyanate (TDI) sold in the
United States, from early 2015 or 2016 through the present,
including through 3 agreements to limit supply of MDI and TDI
through planned manufacturing shutdowns at plants worldwide and
implementing coordinated price increases. The record indicates that
discovery is likely to be international in scope and will include a
significant number of nonparties. Centralization will eliminate
duplicative discovery; prevent inconsistent pretrial rulings,
especially with respect to class certification and Daubert motions;
and conserve the resources of the parties, their counsel and the
judiciary.

In its Oct. 3 Order, the MDL Panel concludes that the Western
District of Pennsylvania is an appropriate transferee forum. One
defendant has its U.S. headquarters in this district, and five
other defendants have their headquarters in adjacent or nearby
districts. Relevant documents and witnesses therefore are likely to
be located in or close to this area. Nearly all responding
defendants agree that the Western District of Pennsylvania is an
appropriate venue, along with plaintiffs in one action on the
motion and one potential tag-along action. Judge Donetta W. Ambrose
is an experienced transferee judge with the ability and willingness
to manage this litigation efficiently. We are confident she will
steer this matter on a prudent course.[BN]

NIGERIA: Court Certifies Suit vs. Lagos State as Class Action
-------------------------------------------------------------
Joseph Jibueze, writing for The Nation, reports that a Lagos State
High Court has certified a suit filed by a resident, Owolabi
Rotimi, against the state, challenging the Land Use Charge (LUC)
2018, as a class action.

Justice B. Oke-Lawal granted an order certifying the suit as a
class action for the applicant and "all other recipients of the
annual bill for Land Use Charge 2018 issued by the Lagos State
government."

The judge made an order appointing the applicant to represent
members of the class of LUC recipients.

Justice Oke-Lawal held: "Having considered the facts as stated in
the affidavit, the class of persons having an interest cannot be
ascertained and found for now.

"Several Nigerians will be affected by the decision on the Land Use
Act and it will, therefore, be an expedient and efficient procedure
to have claims of all persons taken in one suit than multiplicity
of suits.

"I am, therefore, satisfied that the applicant can be appointed to
sue on behalf of the entire class of persons who are recipients of
annual bill for Land Use Charge 2018 issued by the Lagos State
government.

"I, therefore, find merit in the application and the motion is
granted as prayed.

"I, hereby, certify this suit as a class action and appoint the
claimant to represent the class as per the prayer in his motion."

Rotimi, through his lawyer, Mr. Olumide Babalola, Esq. had filed an
ex-parte application seeking leave to represent himself and other
recipients of the LUC a class action.

In a supporting affidavit, the applicant, who said he was the
owner/occupier of 13, Ina Abasi Street, Ogudu, GRA, Lagos, argued
that class action would prevent a multiplicity of suits on the same
issue.

He said sometime in February, he was served with a Land Use Charge
Bill/Notice dated April 27, 2018 for the sum of N227, 435.55 for
the period of January 1 to December 31, 2018.

According to him, on the face of the bill, the assessment consisted
of tenement rate and ground rent.

The applicant said constitutionally, tenement rate ought to be
assessed, levied and collected by local governments as opposed to
the state government.

He contended that the ground rent and tenement rate constituted
double taxation.

Rotimi said he approached the court because he did not want to be a
part of illegality and unconstitutionality of paying tenement rate
to the wrong entity.

"The applicant believes that numerous unascertainable owners and
occupiers are interested and affected by the reliefs sought by the
applicant in this suit.

"Numerous persons have been served with the same kind of
bill/notice served on the applicant and they cannot be found or
ascertained as at the time of this suit.

"This suit borders on the provision of the Land Use Charge Law 2018
and the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as
amended)

"It is expedient and efficient procedure for this honourable court
to grant this application, otherwise this honourable court will be
inundated with numerous suits bordering on same subject matter by
members of the applicant's class," the applicant said.

According to him, his lawyer had been briefed by three different
parties on the Land Use Charge already and more may follow.

"The applicant believes that his suit is not about the amounts
payable in the bills/notices which varies, but the constituents
(ground rent + tenement rate) and the collector (Lagos State
government), which is uniform to all the bills/notices.

"It is expedient that this application be granted to avoid
multiplicity of suit and/or conflicting decisions of courts on the
issues raised herein," Rotimi added.

After granting the order, Justice Oke-Lawal said the enrolled order
should be served personally on the defendant by the court's
sheriff.[GN]

violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938.

The Plaintiff and the putative class members are, or were, hourly

members of overtime pay in violation of the FLSA.

RANBAXY INC: Cesar Castillo Suit Alleges Sherman Act Violation
--------------------------------------------------------------
Cesar Castillo, Inc., individually and on behalf of all those
similarly situated v. Ranbaxy Inc., et al., Case No. 1:18-cv-06126
(E.D. N.Y., November 1, 2018), is brought against the Defendants
for violations of the Sherman Act and the Racketeer Influenced and
Corrupt Organizations Act.

This lawsuit seeks monetary relief on behalf of all direct
purchasers of Nexium or its AB-rated generic equivalents, for which
generic entry was delayed in substantial part by Ranbaxy’s
wrongful acquisition and maintenance of 180-day exclusivity, its
business conduct that ultimately required it be subject to a
consent decree, and its preclusion of other generic entrants while
its own applications floundered. Specifically, this action pleads
with particularity that the direct purchasers of the brand drug
Nexium overpaid for the product because Ranbaxy's wrongful conduct
delayed the generic entry for esomeprazole magnesium at least
between May 27, 2014 and January 26, 2015.

The Plaintiff Cesar Castillo, Inc. is a corporation organized under
the laws of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, with its principal
place of business and headquarters located at Bo. Quebradas Arena,
Rd. #1 Km. 26.0, Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, 00926. During the class
period, CCI purchased brand Nexium directly from the manufacturer
and also purchased generic Nexium.

The Defendant Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited was a corporation that,
until March 25, 2015, was organized and existed under the laws of
India, with a principal place of business located at Plot 90,
Sector 32, Gurgaon -122001 (Haryana), India. Ranbaxy Labs was the

RAYMOND JAMES: Loses Motion to Dismiss Class Action
---------------------------------------------------
Alex Padalka, writing for Financial Advisor IQ, reports that a
federal judge in Florida has denied a motion by Raymond James to
dismiss a class action suit alleging the firm charged unauthorized
fees, according to an order filed in the U.S. District Court for
the Southern District of Florida.

In 2015, Jyll Brink filed an action against Raymond James &
Associates on her own behalf and on behalf of other customers, with
an amended class action complaint filed this September, according
to the order.

The action claims RJA charged clients an unauthorized and
unreasonable "processing" fee for executing customer trades in a
commission-free account known as the "Passport Investment Account
Program," according to the order.

The fee was sometimes dubbed "Misc. Fee," according to Brink's
claim. She also claims that while the contract agreement for the
Passport accounts states that procession fees aren't commissions,
the fee contained a markup for profit of up to 1000%, according to
the order.

The fees were therefore transaction-based payments to Raymond
James, and were unauthorized commissions in what were claimed to be
commission-free accounts, according to the claim.

Brink filed a claim for breach of contract and another claim for
negligence, according to the order.

RJA had argued that Brink's claim for breach of contract and
negligence should fail because she had voluntarily paid the
processing fee, according to the order.

The firm also argued that the negligence claim didn't apply because
it was a claim under a private exchange rule not granting a private
right of action, according to the order. But U.S. District Judge
William Dimitrouleas denied Raymond James' motion, with the hearing
for Brink's motion for class certification getting scheduled for
Oct. 19, according to the order. [GN]


REVERA: Lawsuit to Proceed as Mass Tort
---------------------------------------
CTV News reports that a lawsuit alleging negligence at homes
operated by one of Canada's largest long-term care providers will
be discontinued later this year in favour of proceeding as a mass
tort.

Revera, which runs more than 200 nursing and retirement homes
across the country, was sued in 2016.

The class-action suit, which sought $200 million in damages,
alleged that Revera had been negligent in providing care to some of
its residents. Revera denied the allegations.

Markham, Ont.-based lawyer Amani Oakley, Esq. whose firm filed the
lawsuit, said on October 10 that the lawsuit will be discontinued
on Dec. 21, in favour of a mass tort, which means the current 125
individual claims will be grouped and be dealt with by one judge.

Oakley says people can still come forward to join the mass tort,
but suggests they shouldn't delay in order to be sure their time to
take legal action doesn't expire.[GN]

SAHOTA FAMILY: SRO Resident Vows To Keep Fighting After Ruling
--------------------------------------------------------------
Dan Fumano, writing for Vancouver Sun, reports that a proposed
class action lawsuit against the owners of Vancouver's most
notorious single-resident occupancy hotels suffered a setback on
October 11 morning.

Jack Gates has vowed to keep fighting.

Gates, the Downtown Eastside resident behind a legal battle seeking
compensation from slumlords on behalf of other tenants, said after
a legal setback on October 11 that he wants to take the fight to
the country's highest court.

On October 11 morning, the B.C. Court of Appeal ruled Gates'
proposed class-action lawsuit against the Sahota family, owners of
several notorious single-resident occupancy hotels, couldn't
proceed as proposed. But by October 11 afternoon, Gates said he'd
already instructed his lawyer he wants to seek leave to appeal to
the Supreme Court of Canada.

"It's not over till it's over," Gates said. "We want to make sure
all these slumlords in this area know that we're not giving up."

Meanwhile, Gates' lawyer, Jason Gratl, Esq. said October 11 ruling
highlights a "jurisdictional gap," and called on the B.C.
government to close what he called "the slumlord loophole" in the
province's tenant protection legislation.

Gates filed the suit in 2016 when he lived at the Regent Hotel, an
SRO owned by the Sahotas and described by city officials as one of
the worst buildings of its kind in Vancouver. The lawsuit seeks
damages and an injunction ordering repairs.
Gates and Gratl sought to have the suit certified as a class
action, so that other tenants of both the Regent and the Balmoral,
another Sahota-owned SRO, could also seek damages from the
landlords.

Legal observers said the proposed class action, believed to be the
first of its kind in B.C., could have major implications for
tenants trying to resolve grievances against landlords of problem
buildings. Members of Vancouver's Sahota family and their
companies, who own a real estate empire worth more than $200
million, are named as defendants.

The Sahotas' lawyer appealed last year, arguing the B.C. Supreme
Court doesn't have jurisdiction to allow a Residential Tenancy Act
dispute to proceed as a class action, and the B.C. Court of Appeal
granted the appeal on October 11.

Gratl said October 11 decision highlights the "jurisdictional gap
in the Residential Tenancy Act that allows egregious mass claims to
slip through the cracks."

"In fact, it looks like the Sahotas' business model is predicated
on the existence of that gap," Gratl said.

In December, Gratl sent a letter to B.C.'s attorney general and
minister of housing, proposing an amendment to the RTA that would
allow for class-action proceedings in B.C. Supreme Court for
tenants seeking compensation for unacceptable living conditions.

Although the proposed class action wasn't allowed to proceed,
Gates' personal civil suit against the Sahotas is before the B.C.
Supreme Court. But, said Gates: "That's not good enough … It's
not about me, it's about everybody's that's suffered in these
buildings. Everybody that went through hell in the Regent and the
Balmoral and other buildings. I just can't give up."

Asked if he was discouraged by October 11 decision, Gates said:
"No. In fact, it makes me want to press even harder. We're all
still in this together, no matter what."

The late reporter John Colebourn of The Province investigated the
plight of the Regent's tenants and landlords two years ago. Then
last year, Vancouver Sun reporter Denise Ryan won an Amnesty
International award for exposing the horrific conditions faced by
Balmoral tenants.

In the two years since Gates filed his suit, the City of Vancouver
has closed both the Balmoral and the Regent, forcing 300 low-income
tenants to be relocated to new homes. In July of this year, the
city took the rare step of filing an expropriation notice, seeking
to wrest control of both hotels from the Sahotas.

In an emailed statement on October 11, City of Vancouver spokesman
Jag Sandhu wrote: "Counsel for the owners of the Regent and the
Balmoral hotels notified the city of their request for an inquiry
into the expropriation in late August. The attorney general's
office appointed an inquiry officer in late September."

The timeline for the start of the inquiry is yet to be determined,
Sandhu said.

Gates said he thought his legal efforts helped put a spotlight on
the Balmoral, the Regent, and the Sahotas, and pressured the city
to act, but, he added: "To me, it's so little, too late … The
city should have cracked down on them years and years ago, but they
just let it keep sliding and sliding."

He was out campaigning on October 11 at Main and Hastings streets,
volunteering for the Coalition of Progressive Electors (COPE), and
trying to get tenants-rights advocates elected to city hall in next
week's municipal election.

COPE, the long-standing left-wing party, issued their own statement
after the October 11 court decision, in which council candidate
Jean Swanson said: "It's more necessary than ever that the city
steps in to protect tenants when the courts fail.

"Landlords have a lot more power than tenants, and this case proves
it," Swanson said. "Virtually no one in the city believes that
tenants should have to put up with the conditions at the Regent
Hotel, yet no level of government or the court is willing to step
in and protect them." [GN]

SISTERS OF CHARITY: Sexual Abuse Victims Seek Class Action Status
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Francois Gloutnay, writing for Crux Now, reports that the Sisters
of Charity of Quebec said they were "surprised" and "troubled" by
allegations that children who once stayed at the Mont d'Youville
orphanage in Quebec City were sexually abused not only by lay
educators but also by nuns.

The allegations came in a revised petition to the Quebec Superior
Court from a former orphanage resident seeking designation of a
class action lawsuit, the first in Quebec province that named a
women's religious congregation.

The original request for class action by Jean Simard, 56, was
limited to lay educators at the orphanage. Since then, other
alleged victims came forward and on Sept. 24, Simard's attorneys
modified the petition to include some victims who said they had
been abused by nuns.

The nuns "are troubled to hear the allegations of the proceedings
involving their congregation," the religious order said in an Oct.
3 statement from its attorney, Benoit Mailloux, Esq. --
bmailloux@fasken.com

"Before these legal proceedings, the Sisters of Charity of Quebec
had never been informed of such allegations. Their astonishment is
complete," he said.

Simard has alleged that when he was 12, he was "subjected to
systematic and repeated sexual and physical aggression" by
John-Anthony O'Reilly, an educator who was in a position of
authority. Simard claimed that during his stay at the orphanage
from 1973 to 1975, he was beaten with a belt during a "correction
session" each week.

The Sisters of Charity of Quebec operated the orphanage from the
1920s to the 1990s.

The original petition considered that the religious congregation
had been "complicit in its gross negligence, willful blindness, or
camouflage" of the actions of the lay educator.

Attorneys representing Simard indicated that since the initial
request was filed, several other former orphanage residents "have
come forward to denounce abuses of which they have been the
victims, not only from lay workers but also from the nuns."

A woman said she was sexually assaulted by the nun in charge of the
orphanage's laundry when she was 7. "These sexual assaults took
place over a period of one year, once or twice a week," the request
said.

The updated request also targets the Capitale-Nationale's
Integrated University Health and Social Services Center, known as
CIUSSS. The orphanage merged with other social services and became
the Quebec Youth Center in 1996. Since 2015, the Quebec Youth
Center has been part of the CIUSSS.

If the class action is authorized, the attorneys are seeking $2
million in compensation for Simard and an unspecified amount for
the other victims, which may number in the hundreds, the court
filing said.

"Regarding the judicial proceedings brought to our attention today,
we hope that all the light will be shed as soon as possible, both
for the alleged victims and for the nuns of the congregation," said
Jasmin Lemieux-Lefebvre, director of communications at the
Archdiocese of Quebec.

Founded in 1849 by Sister Marie-Anne-Marcelle Mallet, the Sisters
of Charity of Quebec today has 288 members.[GN]

alleges that, as a result of the foregoing, investors purchased
Stitch Fix's common stock at artificially inflated prices during
the Class Period.

On October 1, 2018, Stitch Fix reported quarterly financial results
that fell short of projected active client growth expectations and
disclosed that the Company had signed up far fewer than expected
new active clients during the quarter.  The Company also disclosed
that Stitch Fix's active client count was virtually flat, coming in
at 2.7 million.  Following this news, shares of the Company's stock
declined $15.69 per share, or over 35% in value, to close on
October 2, 2018 at $28.94 per share, on heavy trading volume.

STITCH FIX: Robbins Geller Files Securities Class Action Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP disclosed that a class action has
been commenced on behalf of purchasers of Stitch Fix, Inc. (NASDAQ:
SFIX) common stock during the period between June 8, 2018 and
October 1, 2018 (the "Class Period"). This action was filed in the
Northern District of California and is captioned Sawicki v. Stitch
Fix, Inc., et al., No. 18-cv-6208.

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any
investor who purchased Stitch Fix common stock during the Class
Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff. A lead plaintiff acts
on behalf of all other class members in directing the litigation.
The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice. An
investor's ability to share in any potential future recovery is not
dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff. If you wish to serve as
lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than 60 days from
today. If you wish to discuss this action or have any questions
concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact
plaintiff's counsel, Darren Robbins of Robbins Geller at
800/449-4900 or 619/231-1058, or via e-mail at djr@rgrdlaw.com. You
can view a copy of the complaint as filed at
http://www.rgrdlaw.com/cases/stitchfix/.

The complaint charges Stitch Fix and certain of its officers with
violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Founded in 2011,
Stitch Fix is an online retail fashion subscription service. For
subscription businesses like Stitch Fix, an important business
metric for investors is the number and growth rate of its "active
clients." During 2017 and 2018, Stitch Fix's active client base had
grown dramatically, reaching 2.7 million by the end of the third
quarter of 2018. This growth was due, in large part, to the
Company's prolific television advertising campaign, which it had
launched in 2017.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants
made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to
disclose adverse information about Stitch Fix's business and
prospects, including that its active client growth had slowed
dramatically and that defendants had shut down Stitch Fix's
television advertising campaign for much of the fourth quarter of
2018. As a result of defendants' false statements and/or omissions,
the price of Stitch Fix common stock was artificially inflated to
as high as $51.19 per share during the Class Period.

Then on October 1, 2018, after the close of trading, Stitch Fix
reported its fourth quarter 2018 financial results, which fell
short of projected active client growth expectations. In the
Company's press release, it reported 2.7 million active clients,
disclosing that its new active client growth had stalled throughout
the fourth quarter. During the conference call held with investors
later that evening, Stitch Fix conceded that, despite having
reported on June 7, 2018, which was already a third of the way
through the 2018 fourth quarter, that it had grown active clients
by 180,000 quarter-over-quarter to 2.7 million, its active client
growth rate had declined dramatically during the fourth quarter and
remained virtually flat. Also during the call, defendants disclosed
that Stitch Fix had "temporarily ceased [its] national TV campaign
for 10 weeks" during the 13 weeks of the 2018 fourth quarter,
purportedly to "measure channel efficacy," conceding that the
decision had had a negative impact on new client growth during the
quarter. On this news, the price of Stitch Fix stock declined
$15.69 per share, or more than 35%.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of
Stitch Fix common stock during the Class Period (the "Class"). The
plaintiff is represented by Robbins Geller, which has extensive
experience in prosecuting investor class actions including actions
involving financial fraud.

TENNESSEE: Class Action Lawsuit Over Medicaid Delays in Trial
-------------------------------------------------------------
Adrian Mojica, writing for Fox 17 News Nasville, reports that a
class action lawsuit against the state of Tennessee over delays in
Medicaid applications went to trial on October 9.

The trial has been years in the making, the suit first filed by The
Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in 2014.

The suit takes aim at state agencies which handle TennCare,
claiming practices by the state 'delay and deny health coverage to
individuals eligible for Tennessee's federally funded Medicaid
program, known as TennCare.'

The suit claims Tennessee had been violating federal law which
deprives thousands of low-income citizens timely access to
essential medical care.

Specifically, the suit claims the state did this by requiring
Tennesseans seeking TennCare to do so through the federal
Marketplace, thus closing the TennCare application process to it's
citizens. Under federal law, states are supposed to have a system
in which citizens can apply directly to the state coverage -- in
this case TennCare -- or submit an application in person. Also, the
suit states sending citizens to the Marketplace caused delays
because the Marketplace was not designed and does not screen for
all eligibility categories.

Since the filing of the suit, an injunction was filed requiring
TennCare officials to hold hearing within 45 days for people who
had unreasonable delays. However, as of 2015, SPLC says 21,000
Tennesseans who requested such hearings did not get responses
withing the 45 day period and some had to allegedly wait as long as
90 days.

The suit was filed on behalf of 11 Tennesseans from across the
state which includes five minors. The defendants in the case
include the Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner of the Tennessee
Department of Finance and Administration which oversees TennCare
and the Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Human Services,
which performs some TennCare eligibility and enrollment functions.

TREVENA INC: Bernstein Liebhard Files Securities Lawsuit
--------------------------------------------------------
Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationally acclaimed investor rights law
firm, disclosed that a securities class action lawsuit has been
filed on behalf of those who purchased or acquired the securities
of Trevena, Inc. ("Trevena" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: TRVN)
between May 2, 2016 and October 8, 2018, both dates inclusive (the
"Class Period"). The lawsuit seeks to recover Trevena shareholders'
investment losses.

your legal rights and options, please visit Trevena Shareholder
Class Action Lawsuit or contact Daniel Sadeh toll free at (877)
779-1414 or dsadeh@bernlieb.com.

According to the lawsuit Trevena misled its shareholders to believe
that its April 28, 2016 End-of-Phase 2 Meeting with the United
States Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") was far more successful
than it actually was. The Company did so by issuing a press release
entitled "Trevena Disclosed Successful End-of-Phase 2 Meeting with
FDA and Outlines Phase 3 Program for Oliceridine," on May 2, 2016,
in which it announced that it had "reached general agreement" with
the FDA on key elements of its Phase 3 program for oliceridine
(TRV130) and was "very pleased" with the outcome of its discussions
with the FDA.

However, in fact, on October 9, 2018, minutes from the FDA's April
28, 2016 meeting with Trevena were released and showed that the
FDA:

"did not agree with the proposed dosing in the Phase 3 studies";
"did not agree with the proposed primary endpoint"; and
"did not agree with the proposed non-inferiority (NI) margin for
comparing morphine to oliceridine."
On this news, Trevena stock fell $2.04 per share, or over 68%, over
the next two trading days to close at $0.947 per share on October
10, 2018, damaging investors.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no
later than December 10, 2018. A lead plaintiff is a representative
party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the
litigation. Your ability to share in any recovery doesn't require
that you serve as lead plaintiff. If you choose to take no action,
you may remain an absent class member.

TREVENA INC: Block & Leviton Files Securities Class Action
----------------------------------------------------------
Block & Leviton LLP, a securities litigation firm representing
investors nationwide, disclosed that it has filed a securities
fraud class action against Trevena, Inc. ("Trevena" or the
"Company") (NASDAQ: TRVN) and certain of its officers alleging
violations of the federal securities laws and encourages

2018 lead plaintiff deadline.

The complaint, filed in the United States District Court Eastern
District of Pennsylvania, captioned Tomaszewski v. Trevena, Inc. et
al., Case No. 2:18-cv-04378, alleges that between May 2, 2016 and
October 8, 2018, inclusive (the "Class Period"), Defendants made
false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose
material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations,
and prospects. Specifically, Trevena misled its shareholders to
believe that its April 28, 2016 End-of-Phase 2 Meeting with the
United States Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") was far more
successful than it actually was. The Company did so by issuing a
press release entitled "Trevena Disclosed Successful End-of-Phase 2

May 2, 2016, in which it announced that it had "reached general
agreement" with the FDA on key elements of its Phase 3 program for
oliceridine (TRV130) and was "very pleased" with the outcome of its
discussions with the FDA. In fact, FDA minutes from its April 28,
2016 meeting with the Company show that the FDA:

"did not agree with the proposed dosing in the Phase 3 studies";
"did not agree with the proposed primary endpoint"; and
"did not agree with the proposed non-inferiority (NI) margin for
comparing morphine to oliceridine"

As a result of Defendants' wrongful acts and omissions, and the
precipitous decline in the market value of the Company's
securities, Plaintiff and other Class Members have suffered
significant losses and damages.

If you purchased TRVN shares between May 2, 2016 and October 8,
2018 and wish to serve as a lead plaintiff, you must move the Court

Trevena Accused of Lying to Investors About Critical FDA Meeting
for Over Two Years

According to the complaint, Trevena led shareholders to believe
that the company's April 2016 End-of-Phase 2 meeting with the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") was more successful than it
actually was. Trevena stated that it had reached an agreement with
the FDA on key elements of its Phase 3 program for oliceridine and
that the company was "very pleased" with the outcome. However, on
October 9, 2018, two days before Trevena's meeting with the FDA to
discuss whether oliceridine would be approved for commercial use,
the FDA released meeting minutes from the April 2016 meeting
revealing that the FDA did not agree with the proposed dosing in
the Phase 3 studies, among other things. On this news, Trevena's
stock plummeted 64% to close at $1.07 per share on October 9, 2018,
and continues to decline.

UNITED AIRLINES: Pilots Class and Subclasses Certified in "Moss"
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Thomas M. Durkin granted, in accordance with the
Court's opinion, the Plaintiff's motion for class certification in
the lawsuit styled MICHAEL MOSS, individually and on behalf of all
others similarly situated v. UNITED AIRLINES, INC.; UNITED
CONTINENTAL HOLDINGS, INC.; and CONTINENTAL AIRLINES, INC., Case
No. 1:16-cv-08496 (N.D. Ill.).

Michael Moss alleges that pilots for the Defendants were deprived
of sick time accrual, vacation time accrual, and pension payments,
during military leave in violation of the Uniformed Services
Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 ("USERRA").

For reasons stated in the Court's order, the Motion is granted in
accordance with the class definition modifications described in the
Order.  The Court finds that the Plaintiff has proved each
requirement of Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure by a
preponderance of the evidence and classes will be certified in this
case.  The parties' disputes concern details of the class
definitions, which are addressed in the Order.

The sick time accrual class is defined as:

     All past and present pilots employed by the Company from
     April 1, 2005, to the present, who: (i) did not accrue sick
     time while on periods of military leave from April 1, 2005,
     to the present; and (ii) were not at the maximum sick leave
     accrual level of 1,300 hours at the time of their military
     leave(s) of absence or at any time thereafter.

The vacation time subclass is defined as:

     All past and present pilots employed by the Company from
     April 1, 2005, to the present, who did not accrue vacation
     time while on periods of military leave from April 1, 2005,
     to the present.

The pension pay subclass is defined as:

     Those pilots employed by the Company who: (i) received a
     capped pay longevity credit for furloughees under Paragraph
     4 of UPA LOA 25; (ii) took military leave at any point
     during the period from December 1, 2012 to January 31, 2016;
     and (iii) received a pension contribution under Paragraph C
     of LOA 38 on or about April 1, 2016 based on actual pay
     received from December 1, 2012 through January 31, 2016.

The Court states that it adopts this definition of the pension pay
subclass with one caveat.

Judge Durkin notes that the parties did not address in their briefs
the significance of the April 1, 2016 date, and the Court does not
see it in the complaint.  Judge Durkin says that the parties should
be prepared to explain the significance of the date at the next
status hearing, including whether Defendants object to the addition
of the "on or about" language.  The Court may reconsider the
definition in light of what the Court learns from the parties at
the hearing.[CC]
