ASSERTIO THERAPEUTICS: Continues to Defend Huang Class Action
-------------------------------------------------------------
Assertio Therapeutics, Inc. said in its Form 10-K report filed with
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 11, 2019, for
the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, that the company continues
to defend a securities class action entitled, Huang v. Depomed et
al.

On August 23, 2017, the Company, its current chief executive
officer and president, its former chief executive officer and
president, and its former chief financial officer were named as
defendants in a purported federal securities law class action filed
in the United States District Court for the Northern District of
California (Huang v. Depomed et al., No. 3:17-cv-4830-JST, N.D.
Cal.).

The action alleges violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Rule 10b-5
relating to certain prior disclosures of the Company about its
business, compliance, and operational policies and practices
concerning the sales and marketing of its opioid products and
contends that the conduct supporting the alleged violations
affected the value of Company common stock and is seeking damages
and other relief.

In an amended complaint filed on February 6, 2018, the lead
plaintiff (referred to in its pleadings as the Depomed Investor
Group), which seeks to represent a class consisting of all
purchasers of Company common stock between July 29, 2015 and August
6, 2017, asserted the same claims arising out of the same and
similar disclosures against the Company and the same individuals as
were involved in the original complaint.

The Company and the individuals filed a motion to dismiss the
amended complaint on April 9, 2018. The lead plaintiff filed an
opposition to the motion on June 8, 2018. The Company and the
individuals filed a reply in support of their motion to dismiss on
July 23, 2018. Oral arguments took place on December 13, 2018.

The Company believes that the action is without merit and intends
to contest it vigorously.

Assertio Therapeutics, Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company,
provides medicines in neurology, orphan, and specialty areas in the
United States. The company was formerly known as Depomed Inc. and
changed its name to Assertio Therapeutics, Inc. in August 2018.
Assertio Therapeutics, Inc. was founded in 1995 and is
headquartered in Lake Forest, Illinois.

against the Defendant for its failure to design, construct,

BENY'S DELICE: Bamaca & Cortes Seek Overtime Pay
------------------------------------------------
A class action complaint has been filed against Beny's Delice LLC
in Brooklyn. The case is captioned EDI EDUARDO BAMACA and LIONEL
VAZQUEZ CORTES, individually and on behalf of others similarly
situated, Plaintiffs, v. BENY'S DELICE LLC (D/B/A BENY'S DELICE),
BENY'S EPICERIE INC. (D/B/A BENY'S DELICE), M2M F&B LLC (D/B/A
BENY'S DELICE), DAVID BENIZERI (A.K.A. BENIZERS), and MAX DOE,
Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-01627 (E.D.N.Y., March 21, 2019).

The Plaintiffs, who were employed as cooks, worked for Defendants
in excess of 40 hours per week, without appropriate minimum wage,
overtime, and spread of hours compensation for the hours that they
worked. Defendants allegedly failed to maintain accurate
record-keeping of the hours worked and failed to pay Plaintiffs
appropriately for any hours worked, either at the straight rate of
pay or for any additional overtime premium. They also failed to pay
Plaintiffs the required "spread of hours" pay for any day in which
they had to work over 10 hours a day. Defendants repeatedly failed
to pay Plaintiffs wages on a timely basis. Defendants maintained a
policy and practice of requiring Plaintiffs and other employees to
work in excess of 40 hours per week without providing the minimum
wage and overtime compensation required by federal and state law
and regulations.

The Defendants own, operate, or control a French pastry shop and
cafe, located at 903 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, NY 11238 under the
name Beny's Delice. Individual defendants David Benizeri (a.k.a.
Benizers) and Max Doe, serve or served as owners, managers,
principals, or agents of defendant corporations and, through these
corporate entities, operate or operated the French pastry shop and
cafe as a joint or unified enterprise.

BR RESTAURANTS: Moreno Sues over Unpaid Wages for Tipped Employees
------------------------------------------------------------------
A lawsuit against BR Restaurants Holdings, LLC, and Blue Ribbon
Restaurants, LLC, seeks to recover unpaid wages, pursuant to the
Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. The case is a purported class and
collective action brought on behalf of "Tipped Employees" who work
or have worked at restaurants operating under the trade name Famous
Dave's BBQ that are owned and operated by the Defendants.

According to the complaint, Famous Dave's systematically and
willfully deprived Plaintiff and Tipped Employees of minimum wages
and overtime wages in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act,
and the Michigan Workforce Opportunity Act, failing to satisfy the
notice requirements of the tip credit provisions of the FLSA and
MWOWA.

Due to Defendants' unlawful failure to properly inform Tipped
Employees of its intention to utilize a "tip credit", the
Defendants have improperly applied a "tip credit" against the wages
paid to Plaintiff and current and former Tipped Employees, thus
paying them less than the mandated minimum wage.

Moreover, Defendants' Tipped Employees often clocked in to
Defendants' time-keeping systems under different job codes which
paid different hourly rates. When Tipped Employees worked in excess
of 40 hours in a workweek working under different job codes,
Defendants only paid the employee overtime based on the rate for
the job code the employee worked those overtime hours. In short,
and in contravention of applicable law, the Defendants failed to
pay overtime at a blended rate based upon a weighted average of the
hourly rates for all the job codes worked the week the overtime was
incurred.

Lastly, when Tipped Employees worked catering events, Defendants
improperly capped the amount of tips that could be retained by
Tipped Employees working the event, and retained amounts in excess
of the capped amount, in violation of Michigan common law, the
lawsuit says.

The case is captioned VICTORIA MORENO, on behalf of herself and all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff, vs. BR RESTAURANTS

BRAZTECH INT'L: $38MM Burrow Suit Settlement Gets Initial Approval
------------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Magistrate Judge Edwin G. Torres grants preliminary approval
to the $37,995,000 class action settlement in the consolidated
lawsuit styled WILLIAM BURROW, OMA LOUISE BURROW, ERNEST D.
BEDWELL, AND SUZANNE BEDWELL v. FORJAS TAURUS S.A. and BRAZTECH
INTERNATIONAL, L.C., Case No. 1:16-cv-21606-EGT (S.D. Fla.).

On March 2, 2018, the Plaintiffs filed their First Amended and
Consolidated Class Action Complaint asserting class claims for
breach of warranty, strict products liability and negligence under
Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, and seeking
damages, injunctive and other relief against the Defendants in
connection with alleged defects in the design and manufacture of
the Class Revolvers.

Discovery revealed that there were approximately 255,000 Class
Revolvers manufactured during the Class Period that were sold in
the United States.

The Settlement Class is defined as:

     All individuals in the United States, including its
     territories and possessions, who owned one or more Class
     Revolver(s) on the [Preliminary Approval Date].

Excluded from the Settlement Class are (a) all state, local, or
federal bodies or agencies, etc., or Persons in an official
capacity; (b) the District Judge and Magistrate Judge to whom the
Action is assigned and any appellate judge assigned to any appeal
in the Action, together with any member of their staffs and
immediate families; (c) any Successful Opt-Out, and (d) any other
Person who has been recognized by Order of the Court as excluded
from the Settlement Class for any reason.

There are four major components to this Settlement: (1) the safety
warning; (2) an Enhanced Warranty, under which Class Members may
submit their Class Revolvers for Enhanced Warranty Service one
time, automatically extended to present and future owners of all
Class Revolvers; (3) an Enhanced Warranty Service that provides for
the free shipping, inspection, repair and/or replacement,
certification and cleaning of each Class Revolver submitted; and
(4) an Inconvenience Payment to compensate class members for having
to have their Class Revolvers submitted for inspection.

All Class Members who do not opt out, who avail themselves of the
Enhanced Warranty Service, and submit a valid claim during the
Claim Period, will receive the "Inconvenience Payment" of $50 per
class member.

Under the Settlement, Class Counsel have reserved the right to seek
a reasonable Service Award, not to exceed $7,500, for each Class
Representative for his or her service as the named representative
of the Settlement Class.  Under the Settlement, Class Counsel has
reserved the right to petition the Court for an award of attorneys'
fees and reimbursement of costs and expenses incurred in the
prosecution of this case, in an amount not to exceed $5,553,000.

The attorney's fee negotiated by Class Counsel equates to
approximately 14% of the $37,995,000 value of the benefits created
by the proposed Settlement.

The Court approves the Notice Program as the best notice
practicable under the circumstances, and as meeting the
requirements of due process under Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of
Civil Procedure.  The Court directs that notice be provided to the
Settlement Class in accordance with the Notice Program.

The procedure for Settlement Class Members to object to final
approval of the Settlement Agreement or for Persons to exclude
themselves from the Settlement Class is established as set forth in
the Order, and the Opt-Out and Objection Deadline is July 15,
2019.

The Court approves and appoints Epiq Class Action & Claims
Solutions to serve as Claims Administrator, with Hilsoft
Notifications (a business unit of Epiq) serving as Notice Provider,
to perform the tasks as set forth in the Settlement Agreement and
execute the Class Notice and, further, authorizes and approves
Braztech's role in the claims process as provided for in Part
III(C)(2) of the Settlement Agreement.

The Court authorizes and approves Defendants' continuing the Early
Warning Program and beginning to provide the Enhanced Warranty
Service prior to Final Approval and approves the evidentiary
preclusion provided for in Part IV(B) of the Settlement Agreement.

A Final Approval Hearing will be held on August 27, 2019.[CC]


BROOK TAUBE: Court Halts Vote on Medley-Sierra Merger
-----------------------------------------------------
Law360 reports that stockholders can't vote on a complex merger
involving Medley Capital Corp. and Sierra Income Corp. until
disclosures are amended to provide additional information to Medley
Capital's investors about conflicts of interest.

The Court held that "Medley Capital's directors violated their
fiduciary duties in entering into the Proposed Transactions. Medley
Capital is ordered to issue corrective disclosures in accordance
with this decision and to permit the stockholders sufficient time
in advance of any stockholder vote to assimilate the information."

Prior to this, a motion was filed seeking an order scheduling an
expedited trial prior to the March 8 vote on the merger, or in the
alternative, a preliminary injunction hearing followed by an
expedited trial.

The proposed mergers will allow Medley Management to sell their
interests at a premium far higher than any third-party would pay,
perpetuating their advisory fee stream through new agreements and
increase their equity in any subsequent sale of the combined
company.

Plaintiffs filed suit seeking to block the proposed mergers.

The case is Frontfour Capital Group LLC and Frontfour Master Fund,
LTD., on behalf of themselves and similarly situated stockholders
of Medley Capital Corporation, Plaintiffs, v. Brook Taube, Seth
Taube, Jeff Tonkel, Mark Lerdal, Karin Hirtler-garvey, John E.
Mack, Arthur S. Ainsberg, Medley Management, Inc., Sierra Income
Corporation and Medley Capital Corporation, Defendants, Case No.
2019-0100-KJSM, filed in the Court of Chancery of the State of
Delaware on February 11, 2019).[BN]

C.A.G. CREDIT: Naiman Sues over Wide Scale Illegal Telemarketing
----------------------------------------------------------------
Sidney Naiman, individually and on behalf of a class of all persons
and entities similarly situated, the Plaintiff, vs. C.A.G. Credit
and Business Services; and Alan Hayon, the Defendants, Case No.
2:19-cv-01737-JZB (D. Ariz., March 15, 2019), seeks to redress
Defendants' wide scale illegal telemarketing under the Telephone
Consumer Protection Act.

C.A.G. Credit and Business Services and its owner Alan Hayon made
telemarketing calls to a cellular telephone number of Mr. Naiman
for the purposes of advertising its goods and services using an
automated dialing system, which is prohibited by the TCPA, the
lawsuit says.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff never consented to
receive the calls, which were placed to him for telemarketing
purposes. Because telemarketing campaigns generally place calls to
thousands or even millions of potential customers en masse, the
Plaintiff brings this action on behalf of a proposed nationwide
class of other persons who received illegal telemarketing calls
from or on behalf of the Defendants.

C.A.G. Credit and Business Services engages this use of this
equipment and the technology of recorded messages because it allows
for thousands of automated calls to be placed at one time, but its
telemarketing representatives, who are paid by the hour, only talk
to individuals who pick up the telephone.[BN]

The District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 8:19-cv-00514 to the

CONTOURE LASER: Torres Suit Asserts TCPA Breach
-----------------------------------------------
Francis Torres, individually and on behalf of all others similarly

CENTER, LLC, a Florida limited liability company, Defendant, Case
No. 0:19-cv-60768 (S.D. Fla., March 25, 2019) is a putative class
action under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA").

In efforts to drum-up business, the Defendant would often send
marketing text messages providing different types of offers and
savings for future purchases without first obtaining express
written consent to send such marketing text messages as required to
do so under the TCPA. These messages were sent using mass-automated
technology through a third-party company hired by Defendant to send
marketing text messages on Defendant's behalf en masse.

In sum, Defendant knowingly and willfully violated the TCPA,
causing injuries to Plaintiff and members of the putative class,
including invasion of their privacy, aggravation, annoyance,
intrusion on seclusion, trespass, and conversion, says the
complaint.

Plaintiff is a natural person who was a resident of Broward County,
Florida.

Defendant owns and operates several cosmetic centers in the state
of Florida.[BN]

COWEN INC: Still Defends Fletcher Class Action
----------------------------------------------
Cowen Inc. said in its Form 10-K report filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission on March 7, 2019, for the fiscal
year ended December 31, 2018, that the company continues to defend
itself from a putative class action lawsuit initiated by Landol
Fletcher.

On December 27, 2013, Landol Fletcher filed a putative class action
lawsuit against Convergex Holdings, LLC, Convergex Group, LLC,
Cowen Execution, Convergex Global Markets Limited and G-Trade
Services LLC (collectively, "Convergex") in the United States
District Court for the Southern District of New York (Landol
Fletcher and all others similarly situated v. Convergex Group LLC,
Cowen Execution, Convergex Global Markets Ltd., Convergex Holdings
LLC, G-Trade Services LLC, & Does 1-10, No. 1:13-CV-09150-LLS).

The suit alleges breaches of fiduciary duty and prohibited
transactions under ERISA and seeks to maintain a class action on
behalf of all ERISA plan participants, beneficiaries and named
fiduciaries whose plans were impacted by net trading by Convergex
Global Markets Limited from October 2006 to December 2011. On April
11, 2014, Landol Fletcher and Frederick P. Potter Jr., filed an
amended complaint raising materially similar allegations.

This matter was assumed by the Company as a result of the Company's
previously announced acquisition of Convergex Group, which was
completed on June 1, 2017. On February 17, 2016, the District Court
granted Convergex's motion to dismiss the amended complaint.
Plaintiffs filed an appeal to the Second Circuit, and the AARP and
Department of Labor filed amicus briefs on plaintiffs' behalf. The
appeal was argued on December 12, 2016.

On February 10, 2017, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals (1)
reversed the District Court, finding that plaintiff has
constitutional standing in a "representative" capacity to sue for
damages to the ERISA defined benefit plan in which he is a
participant, and (2) remanded to the District Court to reconsider,
in light of the Circuit Court's decision, the issue whether
plaintiff has standing to pursue claims on behalf of ERISA plans in
which plaintiff is not a participant.

Convergex filed a petition for rehearing, and the Court of Appeals
denied the petition. On June 30, 2017, the Company filed a notice
of motion and memorandum of law in support of a motion to stay the
proceedings in the District Court pending resolution of its
petition for writ of certiorari, which the Company intended to file
with the U.S. Supreme Court.

On August 16, 2017, the District Court granted the Company's motion
to stay the proceedings in the District Court pending resolution of
the Company's petition for writ of certiorari. On September 1,
2017, the Company filed a petition with the United States Supreme
Court for a writ of certiorari requesting review of the decision of
the Court of Appeals.

On January 8, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court denied the Company's
petition for a writ of certiorari. The previously granted stay of
the proceedings in the District Court has been lifted, and the case
is proceeding in the District Court. Status conferences were held
on April 6, 2018, October 12, 2018, and December 4, 2018.

Cowen said, "We are indemnified against losses arising from this
matter pursuant to, and subject to, the provisions of the purchase
agreement relating to the acquisition of Convergex Group. Because
the case is in its preliminary stages, the Company cannot predict
the outcome at this time, but it does not currently expect this
case to have a material effect on its financial position or its
results of operations."

Cowen Inc. is a publicly owned asset management holding company.
Through its subsidiaries, the firm provides alternative investment
management, investment banking, research, and sales and trading
services for its clients.  Cowen Group, Inc. was founded in 1994
and is headquartered in New York, New York with additional offices
in Boston, Massachusetts, Chicago, Illinois, Cleveland, Ohio,
Dallas, Texas, and San Francisco, California.

PINILLA, Case No. 8:19-cv-00636-JSM-TGW (M.D. Fla., March 14,
2019), arises out of an alleged long-running conspiracy to restrain
trade and suppress competition in the private security guard

will not compete for each others' customers and will not hire their
rivals' employees.  He adds that these agreements are all part of
one overarching conspiracy to restrain trade and suppress
competition in the private security guard industry.

CIS is a Florida for-profit corporation organized and existing
under the laws of Florida with a principal place of business in
Pinellas County in Largo, Florida.  CIS is primarily engaged in the
business of providing private security services for residential
properties, such as apartment complexes, and commercial properties
such as banks.

KKP is a Florida for-profit corporation organized and existing
under the laws of Florida with a principal place of business in
Pinellas County in Largo, Florida.  KKP holds itself out as a trade
association of private security companies throughout Florida and
beyond.

has served as CIS's outside counsel since at least July 2014.
Stanford Solomon is the owner and principal of Solomon Law.

CV SCIENCES: Jane Ish Named New Lead Plaintiff in Sallustro Suit
----------------------------------------------------------------
CV Sciences, Inc. said in its Form 10-K report filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission on March 12, 2019, for the
fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, that the court in the class
action lawsuit initiated by Tanya Sallustro has granted plaintiff's
counsel request to substitute Jane Ish as new Lead Plaintiff and to
withdraw Steve Schuck as Lead Plaintiff.

On April 23, 2014, Tanya Sallustro filed a purported class action
complaint (the "Complaint") in the Southern District of New York
(the "Court") alleging securities fraud and related claims against
CV Sciences and certain of its officers and directors and seeking
compensatory damages including litigation costs.

Ms. Sallustro alleges that between March 18-31, 2014, she purchased
certain shares of CV Sciences common stock for a total investment
of $16,000. The Complaint refers to Current Reports on Form 8-K and
Current Reports on Form 8-K/A filings made by the company on April
3, 2014 and April 14, 2014, in which the company amended previously
disclosed sales (sales originally stated at $1.3 million were
restated to $1.1 million - reduction of $0.2 million) and restated
goodwill as $1.9 million (previously reported at net zero).

Additionally, the Complaint states after the filing of the
company's Current Report on Form 8-K on April 3, 2014 and the
following press release, the company's stock price "fell $7.30 per
share, or more than 20%, to close at $25.30 per share."

Subsequent to the filing of the Complaint, six different
individuals filed a motion asking to be designated the lead
plaintiff in the litigation. On March 19, 2015, the Court issued a
ruling appointing Steve Schuck as lead plaintiff. Counsel for Mr.
Schuck filed a "consolidated amended complaint" on September 14,
2015.

On December 11, 2015, the company filed a motion to dismiss the
consolidated amended complaint. After requesting several
extensions, counsel for Mr. Schuck filed an opposition to the
motion to dismiss on March 21, 2016. The company's reply brief was
filed on April 25, 2016. On April 2, 2018, the Court issued a
ruling granting in part and denying in part the motion to dismiss.


Thereafter, on October 3, 2018, plaintiff's counsel filed a motion
to withdraw Mr. Schuck as Lead Plaintiff and to substitute Jane Ish
as new Lead Plaintiff. This motion was granted by the Court.

CV Sciences said, "Management intends to vigorously defend the
allegations and an estimate of possible loss cannot be made at this
time."

CV Sciences, Inc. operates as a life science company. It operates
through two segments, Specialty Pharmaceuticals and Consumer
Products. CV Sciences, Inc. was founded in 2010 and is based in Las
Vegas, Nevada.

ELLIE MAE: Stevens Balks at Merger Deal with Thoma Bravo
--------------------------------------------------------
MICHELLE STEVENS, Individually and on Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, vs. ELLIE MAE, INC., SIGMUND
ANDERMAN, JONATHAN H. CORR, KAREN BLASING, CARL BUCCELLATO, CRAIG
DAVIS, A. BARR DOLAN, ROBERT J. LEVIN, MARINA LEVINSON, JEB S.
SPENCER, and RAJAT TANEJA, the Defendants, Case No. 3:19-cv-01414
(N.D. Cal., March 18, 2019), is a class action by Plaintiff on
behalf of herself and the other public holders of the common stock
of Ellie Mae, Inc. against the Company and the members of the
Company's board of directors for their violations of Sections 14(a)
and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, in connection
with the proposed acquisition of Ellie Mae by Thoma Bravo LLC.

According to the complaint, on February 28, 2019, the Board caused
the Company to enter into an agreement and plan of merger, pursuant
to which Ellie Mae stockholders will receive $99.00 in cash for
each share of Ellie Mae common stock they hold. On March 15, 2019,
in order to convince Ellie Mae shareholders to vote in favor of the
Proposed Transaction, the Board authorized the filing of a
materially incomplete and misleading Proxy Statement on Schedule
14A with the Securities and Exchange Commission, in violation of
Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act.

The lawsuit contends that, while Defendants are touting the
fairness of the Merger Consideration to the Company's shareholders
in the Proxy, they have failed to disclose certain material
information that is necessary for stockholders to properly assess
the fairness of the Proposed Transaction, thereby rendering certain
statements in the Proxy false and/or misleading.  In particular,
the Proxy contains materially incomplete and misleading information
concerning Ellie Mae's financial projections, which were developed
by the Company's management and relied on by the Board to recommend
the Proposed Transaction.  It is imperative that the material
information that has been omitted from the Proxy is disclosed to
the Company's shareholders prior to the forthcoming shareholder
vote, so that they can properly exercise their corporate suffrage
rights.[BN]

EMPLOYERS INSURANCE: Removes FSO Suit to Del. Dist. Ct.

similarly situated v. EMPLOYERS INSURANCE COMPANY OF WAUSAU;
HELMSMAN MANAGEMENT SERVICES, LLC; LIBERTY INSURANCE CORPORATION;
LIBERTY MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY; LM INSURANCE CORPORATION;
THE FIRST LIBERTY INSURANCE CORPORATION; AND WAUSAU UNDERWRITERS
INSURANCE COMPANY, Case No. S19C-01-051 CAK, from the Superior
Court of Sussex County, Delaware, to the U.S. District Court for
the District of Delaware.

The District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 1:19-cv-00509-UNA to the
proceeding.

On January 31, 2019, First State Orthopaedics, P.A. ("FSO") filed a
Proposed Class Action Complaint against the Defendants in the
Superior Court of Delaware.  FSO alleges that it received
Explanation of Payments forms ("EOPs") that "do not set forth any
reason for the carrier or TPA's denial of coverage."

FSO takes issue with the following written explanation that the
Defendants occasionally include on EOPs as the reason for denying
certain charges: "THIS SERVICE [IS] NOT AUTHORIZED BY CASE MANAGER.
PLEASE CONTACT THE CASE MANAGER FOR FURTHER INFORMATION."  FSO
claims that this language does not fulfill Defendants' duty to
provide "a written explanation of reason for denial" under 19 Del.
C. Section 2322F(e), and that this in turn violates 19 Del. C.
Sections 2322F(h) and 2362(B).[BN]

----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiff James Banneck filed an appeal from a Court ruling in his
lawsuit titled James Banneck v. FNMA/Fannie Mae, et al., Case No.
3:17-cv-04657-WHO, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of California, San Francisco.

As reported in the Class Action Reporter on March 26, 2019, Judge
William H. Orrick granted Fannie Mae's motion for summary
judgment.

Mr. Banneck brings the instant lawsuit against Defendant Fannie Mae
alleging violations of the California Consumer Credit Reporting
Agencies Act ("CCRAA") and the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act
("FCRA").  He claims that Fannie Mae's Desktop Underwriter ("DU")
system, which is used by lenders to determine whether an
applicant's loan can be purchased by Fannie Mae, generated an
inaccurate DU findings report that negatively impacted his loan
application.  He contends that Fannie Mae prohibited mortgage
originators from providing consumers with a copy of their DU
findings report in violation of the CCRAA and FCRA.

The appellate case is captioned as James Banneck v. FNMA/Fannie
Mae, et al., Case No. 19-15468, in the United States Court of

FERRELLGAS PARTNERS: Appeal in N.Y. Class Action Ongoing
--------------------------------------------------------
Ferrellgas Partners, L.P. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 8, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended January 31, 2019, that the appeal in the
securities class action lawsuits filed in New York is ongoing.

Ferrellgas has been named, along with several former officers, in
several class action lawsuits alleging violations of certain
securities laws based on alleged materially false and misleading
statements in certain of our public disclosures.

The lawsuits, the first of which was filed on October 6, 2016 in
the Southern District of New York, seek unspecified compensatory
damages.

Derivative lawsuits with similar allegations have been filed naming
Ferrellgas and several current and former officers and directors as
defendants.

On April 2, 2018, the securities class action lawsuits were
dismissed with prejudice. On April 30, 2018, the plaintiffs filed a
notice of appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the
Second Circuit.

The parties have completed briefing and are preparing for oral
argument.

Ferrellgas Partners said, "At this time the derivative lawsuits
remain stayed by agreement. Ferrellgas believes that it has
defenses and will vigorously defend these cases. Ferrellgas does
not believe loss is probable or reasonably estimable at this time
related to the putative class action lawsuits or the derivative
actions."

No further updates were provided in the Company's SEC report.

Ferrellgas Partners, L.P. distributes and sells propane and related
equipment and supplies. The company transports propane to propane
distribution locations, tanks on customers’ premises, or to
portable propane tanks delivered to retailers. Ferrellgas Partners,
L.P. was founded in 1939 and is headquartered in Overland Park,

FMR LLC: Summers Sues over 401(k) Savings Plans
-----------------------------------------------
FMR LLC, Fidelity Management and various related entities have been
named as defendants in a class action lawsuit alleging violation of
the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.  The Plaintiffs are
investors in 401(k) and similar defined contribution retirement
plans serviced by Fidelity.  They seek to enforce Defendants'
liability under section 1109(a) to return all Savings Plan losses
arising from each breach of fiduciary duty and to restore to the
Savings Plans all profits gained through the use of Savings Plan
assets, seek to enjoin Fidelity's imposition of the undisclosed
Fee, and seeks relief consisting of ERISA civil enforcement
remedies against offending fiduciaries and other interested
parties.

According to the complaint, Fidelity, as a fiduciary for thousands
of Savings Plans, must act prudently and in the sole interest of
these plans and their participants and beneficiaries. But since at
least 2016, Fidelity has breached its fiduciary duties to the
Savings Plans by charging mutual fund and other investment
companies a substantial fee as a condition for their investment
vehicles being offered on Fidelity's fund platform. Although
Fidelity refers to this arrangement as an "infrastructure" fee, it
is in fact an illegal and undisclosed pay-to-play fee that Fidelity
extracts from investment companies that wish to ensure their
products are marketed and sold through Fidelity. The Fee drives up
expense ratios borne by 401(k) plan participants, causing these
participants to pay more in fees and receive lower returns on their
investments.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Fidelity instructed
participating mutual funds not to disclose the Fee to any third
party, including plan sponsors, plan beneficiaries, and the public.
Based on internal Fidelity documents, the Journal further reported
that the Fee represents "0.15% of a mutual-fund company's
industry-wide assets." That the Fee is calculated by reference to
industry-wide assets, rather than assets held only through
Fidelity, confirms that the Fee bears no meaningful relationship to
any "infrastructure" maintenance by Fidelity, and hence constitutes
excessive compensation. The United States Department of Labor and
the Massachusetts Securities Division have each opened
investigations into Fidelity's imposition of the Fee.

As the Journal noted, "with $1.5 trillion in third-party
mutual-fund assets held by Fidelity customers, the firm's
FundsNetwork is a powerful platform for fund companies seeking to
engage with investors." Fidelity thus has significant leverage to
coerce payments from mutual fund complexes interested in offering
their funds through Fidelity. Fidelity also offers its own mutual
funds, and the Fee enables it to offset losses it has sustained
from investors flocking to lower-cost index funds.

Fidelity's assessment of the Fee constitutes self-dealing that
violates Fidelity's fiduciary duties and ERISA's prohibited
transaction rule. Additionally, the Fee constitutes indirect
compensation to Fidelity that must be disclosed to the Savings
Plans under ERISA, which mandates written disclosure of any such
compensation that Fidelity "reasonably expects to receive" in
connection with its services. Despite its fiduciary and disclosure
obligations, Fidelity continues to charge the Fee and keeps the
amount of the Fee payments confidential, the lawsuit says.

The case is captioned as GINA SUMMERS, on behalf of the Rock
Holdings & Associated Companies 401(k) Savings Plan and on behalf
of a class of similarly situated employee savings plans, CYNTHIA
EDDY, on behalf of the Cadence Health Matched Savings Plan and on
behalf of a class of similarly situated employee savings plans, and

failing to register, failing to comply with the terms of the
parties' working arrangement, and failing to make, keep and
preserve accurate records of Plaintiffs' hours worked and to pay
Plaintiffs and others similarly situated workers their wages when

worked by Plaintiffs and similarly situated employees, and by
denying them overtime premiums to which they were entitled.

The Defendants also failed to provide legally required meal
periods, or to provide premium pay for missed, late, or short meal
periods, as required by California law. Additionally, Defendants
did not reimburse employees for work-related expenses. Defendants

       "Class Period"), inclusive, and who were damaged thereby
       (the Section 10(b) Class"); and

   (2) certify a class of all persons and entities who purchased
       or otherwise acquired Miller Energy Series C Preferred
       Stock or Series D Preferred Stock pursuant to or traceable
       to the Offering Documents and were damaged thereby (the
       "Section 11 Class").

The Plaintiffs also seek an Order: (1) appointing Lewis Cosby, Eric
Montague and Martin Ziesman, as Co-Trustee for the Carolyn K.
Ziesman Trust, as Class Representatives; and (2) appointing the law
firms of Gordon Ball PLLC and Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC as
Class Counsel.

The sole catalyst for Miller Energy's ("Miller" or the "Company")
dizzying transformation from an East Tennessee-based oil and gas
penny stock company on the brink of insolvency to a powerhouse
company traded on the New York Stock Exchange was its 2009
acquisition of certain oil and gas reserves in Alaska, the
Plaintiffs allege.  Despite only paying $2.25 million for the
Alaska Assets in a bankruptcy fire sale, the Plaintiffs contend
that Miller and its ostensibly independent auditor, KPMG, LLP,
spent the next five years deceiving investors into believing that
the Alaska Assets were worth a whopping $480 million.  As the
Securities and Exchange Commission later confirmed, this was an
outright fraud and the Alaska Assets were essentially worthless,
the Plaintiffs add.[CC]

KROGER COMPANY: O'Neil Sues Over Ice Cream Product's Misleading Ads
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Jennifer O'Neil, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, v. Plaintiff, The Kroger Company and Does 1 through 10,
inclusive, Defendants, Case No. 19STCV10050 (Cal. Super. Ct., Los
Angeles Cty., March 25, 2019) seeks to secure injunctive relief for
the Class against the Defendant for false and misleading
advertising in violation of Business & Professions Code and Civil
Code.

Kroger labels and advertises its Products as "artisan" vanilla bean
ice creams. "Artisan" refers to a high quality or distinctive
product made in small quantities, usually by hand using traditional
methods by someone skilled in the trade. Artisan foods are
handcrafted in small batches, to ensure quality control, as opposed
to mass production.

However, Kroger does not handcraft or produce the Products in small
batches, asserts the complaint. Kroger mass produces the Products
through a highly mechanized process by using mediocre ingredients,
including preservatives and artificial flavor enhancers. This is
not the "artisanal" quality consumers expect to receive, adds the
complaint.

O'Neil purchased the Product in California within the last 4 years
of the filing of this Complaint.

The Kroger Company is a corporation headquartered in Ohio.[BN]

LIBERTY TAX: Bid to Dismiss NY Consolidated Suit Still Pending
--------------------------------------------------------------
Liberty Tax, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on March 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended January 31, 2019, that the motion to dismiss
in the complaint in the case, In Re Liberty Tax, Inc. Securities
Litigation, Case No. 27 CV 07327, is still pending before the
Court.

Rose Mauro, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated v. Liberty Tax, Inc., Edward L. Brunot, John T. Hewitt,
and Kathleen E. Donovan, filed in the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of New York on January 12, 2018, Case No.
18 CV 245.

The Plaintiff filed a securities class action asserting violations
of Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 against all
defendants and a second count for violations of Section 20(a) of
the Exchange Act against the individual defendants.

According to the complaint, throughout the class period, the
Company allegedly issued materially false and misleading statements
and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Hewitt created an inappropriate
tone at the top; (2) the inappropriate tone at the top led to
ineffective entity level controls over the organization; and (3) as
a result, defendants' statements about the operations and prospects
were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable
basis at all relevant times.

Patrick Beland, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated vs. Liberty Tax, Inc., Edward L. Brunot, John T. Hewitt,
and Kathleen E. Donovan, filed in the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of New York on December 15, 2017, case
number 17 CV 7327.

The Plaintiff filed a securities class action asserting violations
of Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 against all
defendants and a second count for violations of Section 20(a) of
the Exchange Act against the individual defendants.

According to the complaint, throughout the class period, the
Company allegedly issued materially false and misleading statements
and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Hewitt created an inappropriate
tone at the top; (2) the inappropriate tone at the top led to
ineffective entity level controls over the organization; and (3) as
a result, defendants' statements about the business, operations and
prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a
reasonable basis at all relevant times.

These actions were consolidated with the caption In Re Liberty Tax,
Inc. Securities Litigation, Case No. 27 CV 07327 and IBEW Local 98
Pension Fund was appointed the Lead Plaintiff (the "Lead
Plaintiff").

On June 12, 2018, the Lead Plaintiff filed its Consolidated Amended
Class Action Complaint, which removed Brunot as a defendant, and
added additional securities claim based on Section 14(a) of the
Exchange Act and Rules 14a-3 and 14a-9.

The Consolidated Amended Class Action Complaint, among other
things, asserts that the Company's SEC filings over a multi-year
period failed to disclose the alleged misconduct of the individual
defendants and that disclosure of the alleged misconduct caused the
Company's stock price to drop and, thereby harm the purported class
of shareholders. The Class Period is alleged to be October 1, 2013
through February 23, 2018.

The defendants filed a joint motion to dismiss the Consolidated
Amended Class Action Complaint on September 17, 2018. The Lead
Plaintiff served their opposition on November 1, 2018 and the
defendants filed their reply brief on November 27, 2018. A
mediation took place on November 12, 2018 but did not result in a
resolution.

The motion to dismiss is still pending before the Court.

LIBERTY TAX: Continues to Defend Labrado Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------
Liberty Tax, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on March 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended January 31, 2019, that the company continues
to defend a class action lawsuit entitled, Rene Labrado v. JTH Tax,
Inc. (Case BC 715076).

On July 3, 2018, a class action complaint was filed in the Superior
Court of California, County of Los Angeles by a former employee for
herself and on behalf of all other "similarly situated" persons.

The Complaint alleges, among other things, that the Company
allegedly violated various provisions of the California Labor Code,
including: unpaid overtime, unpaid meal period premiums, unpaid
rest premiums, unpaid minimum wages, final wages not timely paid,
wages not timely paid, non-compliant wage statements, failure to
keep pay records, unreimbursed business expenses and violation of
California Business and Profession Code Section 17200. The
Complaint seeks actual, consequential and incidental losses and
damages, injunctive relief and other damages.

Liberty Tax said, "The Company highly disputes the allegations set
forth in the Complaint and plans on filing a dispositive motion.
The Company intends to defend the case vigorously."

No further updates were provided in the Company's SEC report.

LIBERTY TAX: Trial Ongoing in Delaware Stockholder Suit
-------------------------------------------------------
Liberty Tax, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on March 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended January 31, 2019, that trial is ongoing in
the case entitled, In Re: Liberty Tax, Inc. Stockholder
Litigation.

The case, Asbestos Workers' Philadelphia Pension Fund, derivatively
on behalf of Liberty Tax, Inc., v. John Hewitt, Defendant, and
Liberty Tax, Inc., Nominal Defendant, Case No. 2017-0883, was filed
in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware on December 12,
2017.

The Plaintiff alleges that the Company's former CEO, John T. Hewitt
("Hewitt"), breached his fiduciary duties as an officer based upon
certain allegations of misconduct on his part. The Plaintiff also
alleges breach of fiduciary duty against Hewitt in his capacity as
a director of the Company. The Complaint seeks compensatory damages
and attorney's fees. No claim or relief is asserted against the
Company, which is named solely as a Nominal Defendant.

Erie County Employees Retirement System, derivatively on behalf of
Liberty Tax, Inc., v. John T. Hewitt, Defendant, and Liberty Tax,
Inc., Nominal Defendant, Case No. 2017-0914, brought a second
derivative suit filed in the Court of Chancery of the State of
Delaware on December 22, 2017. The Plaintiff also alleges that
Hewitt breached his fiduciary duties as an officer based upon
certain allegations of misconduct on his part. The Plaintiff also
alleges breach of fiduciary duty against Hewitt in his capacity as
a director of the Company. The Complaint seeks to enjoin Hewitt
from managing our business operations, and seeks compensatory
damages and attorney's fees.

On December 27, 2017, the two above-referenced shareholder matters
were consolidated into the case with the caption In Re: Liberty
Tax, Inc. Stockholder Litigation, C.A. No. 2017-0883 (the "Delaware
Action"). On April 17, 2018, the Plaintiffs filed an amended
complaint (the "Amended Complaint"). The Amended Complaint added
former directors, Gordon D'Angelo, Ellen McDowell, Nicole
Ossenfort, and John Seal, with Hewitt as individual defendants (the
"Individual Defendants") and asserted class action allegations.

The Plaintiffs seek (i) a declaration that the Individual
Defendants have breached the Company's Nominating Committee Charter
(now the Nominating & Corporate Governance Committee Charter); (ii)
a declaration that the Individual Defendants have breached their
fiduciary duties; (iii) an award to the Plaintiffs and the Class in
the amount of damages sustained as a result of the Individual
Defendants' breaches; (iv) certification of the action as a class
action; (v) an award to the Company in the amount of damages
sustained as a result of the Individual Defendants' breaches of
their fiduciary duties; (vi) a grant of further appropriate
equitable relief to remedy the Individual Defendants' breaches,
including injunctive relief; (vii) an award to the Plaintiffs of
the costs and disbursements of this action, including reasonable
attorneys' fees, accountants' and experts' fees, costs and
expenses; and (viii) such further relief as the Court deems just
and proper.

The Company has answered the Amended Complaint and discovery is
underway. The Individual Directors have filed a notice of motion to
dismiss. No briefing schedule has been set on the motion. A
mediation took place on November 12, 2018 but did not result in a
resolution. A scheduling order has been entered which currently
schedules trial in this matter to begin on March 18, 2019.

Plaintiff, v. Mashcole Property Management, Inc., Joel Zide, Craig
Senia, Jeremy Radicelli and Does 1 through 50, inclusive,
Defendants, Case No. 19STCV05101 (Cal. Super., February 19, 2019),
seeks redress for Defendants' failure to pay all wages due to
discharged and quitting employees, failure to maintain and furnish
accurate itemized wage statements and failure to provide accrued
paid sick leaves under the California Labor Code and applicable
Industrial Welfare Commission Wage Orders.

Mashcole is a privately owned, for-profit corporation that provides
property management services throughout Southern California where

The Plaintiff in the lawsuit entitled BRANDON GAUSE v. MEDICAL
BUSINESS CONSULTANTS, INC., d/b/a MEDICAL BUSINESS CONSULTANTS
SETTLEMENT DIVISION, Case No. 8:18-cv-01726-EAK-AAS (M.D. Fla.),
asks the Court to certify a class and subclass:

   -- FCCPA Class:

      All individuals who in the State of Florida who: (1) were
      sent letters by Medical Business Consultants, Inc., that
      are substantially similar or materially identical to the
      Collection Letter attached to Plaintiff's Complaint; (2)
      relating to a consumer debt, (3) on or after July 18, 2016;

unfair, and deceptive because they include language that
overshadows and contradicts the required debt validation
notice.[CC]

MESSAGE COMMUNICATIONS: Hardin Sues over Unwanted Telephone Calls
-----------------------------------------------------------------
TENLEY HARDIN, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, vs. MESSAGE COMMUNICATIONS, INC. and DOES
1 through 10, inclusive, and each of them, the Defendants, Case No.
2:19-cv-02002 (C.D. Cal., March 18, 2019), seeks damages and other
available legal or equitable remedies resulting from the illegal
actions of Message Communications, Inc., in negligently, knowingly,
and/or willfully contacting the Plaintiff on her cellular telephone
in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and for
recording conversation with the Plaintiff on her cellular phone
without her knowledge or consent, in violation of California Penal
Code, thereby invading the Plaintiff's privacy.

According to the complaint, beginning in or around April 2018, the
Defendant contacted the Plaintiff on her cellular telephone, number
ending in -2480, in an effort to sell or solicit the services of
its client Quick Capital Funding, LLC.

The Defendant utilized a prerecorded voice message when calling the
Plaintiff, and initiated the call utilizing an automated telephone
dialing system, which dials campaigns from a list of phone numbers
that it purchases from third party data aggregators and lead
generators. The prerecorded message was a form of voice
broadcasting, which involved a "Press 1" IVR.

The Defendant advertises itself as a prerecorded messaging
platform, which provides access to its clients to over 220 million
numbers across the United States to call. These numbers are
complete with name and address information. Clients can access
these calls through a web portal. The system sends out a high
volume of calls on an automated basis for various clients, but all
calls made are made from Defendant's lists, and all calls utilize
the same prerecorded voice broadcasting platform, which is an
automatic telephone dialing system.

While Defendant advertises that it scrubs the outbound dial list
against the National Do Not Call List, the Plaintiff alleges that
Defendant does not scrub the outbound dial list for cellular
phones, and also illegally uses a pre-recorded voice to send
solicitation messages to residential landlines without prior
express written consent. Defendant does not implement appropriate,
widely available, and reasonable protocols to avoid such violations
of federal privacy rights. Defendant thus, sends pre-recorded
solicitation messages without prior express consent both to
residential lines and to cell phones, and thus its standard policy
and practice violates two provisions of the Telephone Consumer
Protection, the lawsuit says.[BN]

NATIONAL COLLEGIATE: Mack Seeks Damages Over Personal Injuries
--------------------------------------------------------------
Abe Mack IV, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. National Collegiate Athletic Association
(NCAA), Defendants, Case No. 19-cv-00944 (S.D. Ind., February 19,
2019), seeks economic, monetary, actual, consequential,
compensatory, and punitive damages, past, present and future
medical expenses, other out of pocket expenses, lost time and
interest, lost future earnings, litigation and attorney fees,
prejudgment and post-judgment interest, injunctive and/or
declaratory relief and such other and further relief resulting from
negligence, fraudulent concealment, breach of express contract,
breach of implied contract, breach of third-party express contract
and unjust enrichment.

Mack played football at Cameron University from 1991 to 1992. He
suffered from numerous concussions, as well as countless
sub-concussive hits as part of routine practice and gameplay. Mack
now suffers from depression, emotional instability, loss of impulse
control, loss of inhibition, loss of concentration, motor
impairment, short-term memory loss, and suicidal thoughts.

NCAA is an unincorporated association with its principal office
located at 700 West Washington Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46206.
The NCAA is the governing body of collegiate athletics that
oversees twenty-three college sports and over 400,000 students who
participate in intercollegiate athletics. Mack alleges NCAA knew
about the debilitating long-term dangers of concussions,
concussion-related injuries and sub-concussive injuries that
resulted from playing college football, but did nothing.

NEWLINK GENETICS: Nguyen Appeals Order and Judgment to 2nd Cir.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiffs Kelly Nguyen and Michael Nguyen filed an appeal from the
District Court's opinion and order, and judgment, both issued on
February 13, 2019, in their lawsuit titled Nguyen, et al. v.
NewLink Genetics Corporation, et al., Case No. 16-cv-3545, in the
U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (New York
City).

As reported in the Class Action Reporter on March 13, 2019, Judge
William H. Pauley, III, granted Defendants NewLink Genetics,
Charles Link, and Nicholas Vahanian' motion to dismiss the Second
Amended Class Action Complaint.

In the wake of the Court's prior Opinion & Order, Nguyen v. New
Link Genetics Corp., 297 F.Supp.3d 472 (S.D.N.Y. 2018), NewLink
cabined its motion to dismiss to falsity and loss causation, the
two elements that the Plaintiffs failed to adequately allege in the
First Amended Complaint.

The Plaintiffs claim NewLink made a series of misrepresentations
regarding the development of its flagship pancreatic cancer drug,
algenpantucel-L, also known as HyperAcute Pancreas.  Through the
Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical trials, NewLink and its officers
allegedly misrepresented the drug's efficacy and misled the market
into believing that the company would obtain Food and Drug
Administration ("FDA") approval to market the drug.  However, the
drug failed to achieve the requisite markers in its clinical trial,
foreclosing its chances for FDA approval.

The appellate case is captioned as Nguyen, et al. v. NewLink
Genetics Corporation, et al., Case No. 19-642, in the United States
Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.[BN]

OCULAR THERAPEUTIX: Awaits Ruling on Bid to Dismiss DEXTENZA Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. said in its Form 10-K report filed with
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on March 7, 2019, for
the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, that the court in the
consolidated class action involving DEXTENZA held oral argument on
the motion to dismiss on February 6, 2019 and took the matter under
advisement.

On July 7, 2017, a putative class action lawsuit was filed against
the company and certain of its current and former executive
officers in the United States District Court for the District of
New Jersey, captioned Thomas Gallagher v. Ocular Therapeutix, Inc,
et al., Case No. 2:17-cv-05011.

The complaint purports to be brought on behalf of shareholders who
purchased the company's common stock between May 5, 2017 and July
6, 2017. The complaint generally alleges that the company and
certain of its current and former officers violated Sections 10(b)
and/or 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or the
Exchange Act, and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder by making
allegedly false and/or misleading statements concerning the Form
483 issued by the FDA related to DEXTENZA and the company's
manufacturing operations for DEXTENZA. The complaint seeks
unspecified damages, attorneys' fees, and other costs.

On July 14, 2017, an amended complaint was filed; the amended
complaint purports to be brought on behalf of shareholders who
purchased our common stock between May 5, 2017 and July 11, 2017,
and otherwise includes allegations similar to those made in the
original complaint.

On July 12, 2017, a second putative class action lawsuit was filed
against the company and certain of its current and former executive
officers in the United States District Court for the District of
New Jersey, captioned Dylan Caraker v. Ocular Therapeutix, Inc., et
al., Case No. 2:17-cv-05095. The complaint purports to be brought
on behalf of shareholders who purchased the company's common stock
between May 5, 2017 and July 6, 2017. The complaint includes
allegations similar to those made in the Gallagher complaint and
seeks similar relief.

On August 3, 2017, a third putative class action lawsuit was filed
against the company and certain of its current and former executive
officers in the United States District Court for the District of
New Jersey, captioned Shawna Kim v. Ocular Therapeutix, Inc., et
al., Case No. 2:17-cv-05704. The complaint purports to be brought
on behalf of shareholders who purchased the company's common stock
between March 10, 2016 and July 11, 2017. The complaint includes
allegations similar to those made in the Gallagher complaint and
seeks similar relief.

On October 27, 2017, a magistrate judge for the United States
District Court for the District of New Jersey granted the
defendants' motion to transfer the above-referenced Gallagher,
Caraker, and Kim litigations to the United States District Court
for the District of Massachusetts.  

These matters were assigned the following docket numbers in the
District of Massachusetts: 1:17-cv-12288 (Gallagher), 1:17-cv-12146
(Caraker), and 1:17-cv-12286 (Kim).

On March 9, 2018, the court consolidated the three actions and
appointed co-lead plaintiffs and co-lead counsel for the
consolidated action. On May 7, 2018, co-lead plaintiffs filed a
consolidated amended class action complaint. The amended complaint
makes allegations similar to those in the original complaints,
against the same defendants, and seeks similar relief on behalf of
shareholders who purchased our common stock between March 10, 2016
and July 11, 2017.  

The amended complaint generally alleges that defendants violated
Sections 10(b) and/or 20(a) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5
promulgated thereunder. On July 6, 2018, defendants filed a motion
to dismiss the consolidated amended complaint. Plaintiffs' filed an
opposition to the motion to dismiss on September 4, 2018, and
defendants filed a reply on October 4, 2018.  

The court held oral argument on the motion to dismiss on February
6, 2019 and took the matter under advisement.

Ocular Therapeutix said, "We deny any allegations of wrongdoing and
intend to vigorously defend against these lawsuits."

Ocular Therapeutix, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, focuses on
the formulation, development, and commercialization of therapies
for diseases and conditions of the eye using its bioresorbable
hydrogel platform technology. Ocular Therapeutix, Inc. was founded

PRET A MANGER: Falsely Sells Foods as Natural, Cunningham Claims
----------------------------------------------------------------
SKYLAR CUNNINGHAM, individually on behalf of herself and all others
similarly situated v. PRET A MANGER, LTD. and JAB HOLDING COMPANY,
Case No. 1:19-cv-02322 (S.D.N.Y., March 15, 2019), seeks to remedy
the alleged deceptive and misleading business practices of the
Defendants with respect to the marketing and sales of Pret a Manger
food products.

Ms. Cunningham contends that she and those similarly situated
relied on the Defendants' misrepresentations that the Products are
"Natural" when purchasing the Products and paid a premium for the
Products over and above comparable products that did not purport to
be "Natural."  She argues that the Defendants' representations that
the Products are "natural" are false, deceptive, and misleading
because the Products contain GMOs, glyphosate, a synthetic
chemical, and numerous other synthetic ingredients.

Pret A Manger, Ltd., is a corporation headquartered in the United
Kingdom.  Its Head Office is located in New York City.  Pret A
Manger was acquired by JAB Holding Company, a German corporation,
in May 2018.  JAB is a corporation headquartered in Germany and
maintains its United States offices in Washington, D.C.

The Defendants manufacture, sell, and distribute the Products using
a marketing and advertising campaign centered around claims that
appeal to health-conscious consumers, i.e., that its Products are
"Natural."  There are more than 80 Pret a Manger store locations in
the United States, with approximately 55 stores located in New
York.[BN]

REVOLUTION LIGHTING: Bishop Files Securities Class Action in NY
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bob Bishop, Individually and On Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, Plaintiff, v. Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc.,
Robert V. LaPenta, Charles J. Schafer, and James A. DePalma,
Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-02722 (S.D. N.Y., March 26, 2019) is a
class action on behalf of persons and entities that purchased or
otherwise acquired Revolution Lighting securities between March 14,
2014 and November 14, 2018, inclusive, seeking to pursue remedies
under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

On September 22, 2017, the Company reduced its 2017 full year
revenue guidance to a range of $180-185 million, compared to prior
guidance of $195 to 205 million, due in part to "slippage of a
number of Energy Source division projects." On this news, the
Company's share price fell $1.32 per share, or more than 17%, to
close at $6.26 per share on September 22, 2017, on unusually high
trading volume.

The Company's shares continued to decline over the course of the
next two trading sessions, dropping $0.33 per share on August 3,
2018 and $0.22 per share on August 6, 2018. The total decline over
the course of these two trading sessions was $0.55, or 18%.

The complaint asserts that 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, Defendants failed to disclose: (1) that the Company
was improperly recognizing revenue for certain transactions; (2)
that, as a result, the Company's financial statements were
misstated; (3) that the Company lacked adequate internal controls
over financial reporting; (4) that, as a result, Company would be
subject to regulatory scrutiny and incur substantial costs; and (5)
that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' positive statements
about the Company's business, operations, and prospects and
prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable
basis, says the complaint.

Plaintiff Bob Bishop purchased Revolution Lighting securities
during the Class Period.

Revolution Lighting purports to design and manufacture
light-emitting diode ("LED") lighting solutions for industrial,
commercial, and government markets.[BN]

ROADRUNNER TRANS: Faces Gomez Class Action in California
--------------------------------------------------------
Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. said in its Form 10-K
report filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on
March 11, 2019, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, that
the company is defending against a class action lawsuit brought by
Fernando Gomez.

In December 2018, a class action lawsuit was brought against the
company in the Superior Court of the State of California by
Fernando Gomez, on behalf of himself and other similarly situated
persons, alleging violation of California labor laws.

This is a new lawsuit and the company is currently determining its
effects.

Roadrunner said, "We intend to vigorously defend against such
claims; however, there can be no assurance that we will be able to
prevail. In light of the relatively early stage of the proceedings,
we are unable to predict the potential costs or range of costs at
this time."

Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. provides asset-right
transportation and asset-light logistics services. The company
operates through three segments: Truckload Logistics (TL),
Less-than-Truckload (LTL), and Ascent Global Logistics. Roadrunner
Transportation Systems, Inc. is headquartered in Downers Grove,
Illinois.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Lee et al. Sue over Taxi Medallion Transfers
---------------------------------------------------------------
PATRICK O'SULLIVAN, SAL LEE, GEORGE HORBAL, ALLIANCE CAB and S.F.
TOWN TAXI INC., the the Plaintiffs, vs. CITY AND COUNTY OF SAN
FRANCISCO; SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL TRANSIT AGENCY; EDWARD D.
REISKIN, Director of Transportation; and DOES 1 through 20, Case
No. CGC-19-574503 (Cal. Super. Ct., March 13, 2019), seeks
declaratory judgment that the San Francisco Municipal Transit
Agency's (SFMTA) December 27, 2018 pickup limitations at San
Francisco International Airport (SFO) violate the Due Process and
Equal Protection Clauses of the California Constitution on their
face and as applied, and are therefore invalid and unenforceable.

The City and County of San Francisco, through its constituent
boards and commissions, issues motor vehicle for hire permits
authorizing permit holders to operate taxicabs on City streets and
to and from San Francisco International Airport ("SFO"). Motor
vehicle for hire permits are often referred to colloquially as
"medallions."

Prior to June 6, 1978, the City issued motor vehicle for hire
permits in the name of individuals and corporations, and one person
or entity could hold multiple permits. Subject to City agency
approval, permit holders were also allowed to transfer medallions
to authorized third parties for consideration, i.e., "sell" the
permit for an agreed-upon purchase price.

Over the course of the decades after passage of Proposition K,
hundreds of pre-K permits reverted to the City for reissuance.
Changes and contractions in corporate ownership resulted in the
surrender of many permits held in corporate form. Immediately prior
to the passage of Proposition K in 1978, there were approximately
700 medallions held by individuals and corporations. By 2018, out
of a total of approximately 1,800 medallions authorized by the
City, fewer than 275 were still held by pre-K permit holders,
individual and corporate.

Virtually all current pre-K medallion holders purchased or acquired
their permits for consideration prior to 1978. Individual permits
typically changed hands for in excess of $15,000 each, in 1976
dollars. At the time, the average income for a San Francisco family
was $13,500, and a home in the City could be purchased for $15,000.
After 1978, many pre-K permit holders elected to personally operate
their medallions to supplement their taxi-related income. However,
the passage of time and the infirmities of age now preclude all but
a handful of them from safely driving a cab. Instead, the vast
majority of pre-K permit holders now rely exclusively on monthly
lease payments from color schemes for medallion-derived income. As
of 2018, almost all the individuals holding pre-K permits are over
the age of 70, the lawsuit says.

On November 2007, City voters approved Proposition A, a Charter 3
amendment. Among other things, Proposition A authorized the vesting
of plenary authority over taxicabs in the SFMTA. Proposition A
provided, in relevant part, that "[o]nce adopted, [SFMTA]
regulations shall thereafter supercede (sic) all previously-adopted
ordinances governing motor vehicles for hire that conflict with or
duplicate such regulations" (Charter section 8A.101(b)).

Starting in 2009, the SFMTA enacted various taxi-related amendments
and additions to the San Francisco Transportation Code. With the
greater regulatory freedom afforded by Proposition A, the SFMTA
could override the non-transferability provisions of Proposition K.
Accordingly, to reap potentially millions of dollars in new
municipal revenue, the SFMTA formulated and put into operation its
Taxi Medallion Transfer Program, Transportation Code sections 1116,
et seq. ("the Program").

Under the Program, with certain exceptions, taxi drivers could
purchase an existing permit from its then-holder for the sum of
$250,000.  About $200,000 of that sum was retained by the seller.
The remaining $50,000 was remitted to the SFMTA. These "Purchased
medallions" were themselves transferable, subject to SFMTA
approval, creating what the SFMTA believed would be a
forward-looking, dynamic taxi medallion marketplace.

Given the relatively modest means of most taxi drivers, the Program
included provisions authorizing "Qualified Lenders" to loan to the
buyer up to 95% of the full purchase price of the medallion. In
exchange, the lender obtained a security interest in the medallion.
The lender furnishing the overwhelming majority of loans to  buyers
of taxi medallions was the San Francisco Federal CredithUnion ("the
Credit Union"). From the Program's inception in 2010, the Credit
Union financed hundreds of Purchased medallion transactions,
extending credit in excess of $150 million. In turn, the SFMTA
received in excess of $50 million in sales-generated revenue. The
Program allowed both pre-K and longtime post-K medallion holders
over 65 years of age (later dropped to 60) to "retire" from the
taxi industry by transferring their medallions to new "Purchased
medallion" holders for consideration.

The Credit Union alleged that the SFMTA had breached the lender
agreements into which it had entered, breached the covenant of good
faith and fair dealing, breached mandatory duties under the
Transportation Code and engaged in serial misrepresentations, all
to the Credit Union's economic detriment. The Credit Union alleged
that while the SFMTA had covenanted to repurchase foreclosed
medallions, it had failed and refused to commit municipal resources
to that end. In its lawsuit, the Credit Union prayed for damages
from the SFMTA in an amount exceeding $31 million.

Color scheme operators will also be adversely affected by the SFMTA
limitations on airport pickups. With few if any drivers willing to
lease a pre-K medallion, those permits will be returned to the
permit holder because the color scheme manager cannot justify the
overhead associated with a vehicle that is producing little or no
revenue. The same effect is likely with respect to more and more
post-K permits as they become less and less desirable for drivers
to operate.

For its part, when the SFMTA Board of Directors adopted its October
16, 2018 resolution granting defendant Reiskin the discretion to
"impose restrictions on the types of medallions authorized to
operate a taxicab trip originating at San Francisco International
Airport", the resolution was expressly premised on a purported
Planning Department determination that the reforms were exempt from
CEQA under a statutory exemption applicable to changes to "rates,
tolls, fares, and other charges by public agencies which are for
the purpose of meeting operating expenses, purchasing or leasing
supplies, equipment, or materials": Not only did the Board's
resolution provide no citation to or analysis of evidence linking
pickup limitations at SFO to the statutory exemption referenced in
the resolution, the Planning Department never made the
determination upon which the Board's resolution relied. Indeed, the
only environmental "evaluation" underlying the limitations on
medallion pickups at SFO was the self-serving conclusion by SFMTA
staff that its earlier and more draconian proposed changes would
not adversely affect the physical environment, the lawsuit says.

The City and County of San Francisco is a political subdivision of
the State of California and a Charter city granted specified home
rule powers and authority under the Constitution of the State of
California. San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency is the
department and administrative arm of the City charged under the San
Francisco Charter with enforcing and administrating the municipal
regulation of motor vehicles for hire, a/kla taxicabs. The SFMTA
has the exclusive authority to enact and amend the San Francisco
Transportation Code which provides for the regulation of taxicabs.
The SFMTA adopted the Program under which persons were allowed to
purchase medallions beginning in 2010. The SFMTA has also
authorized and approved the implementation of restrictions on
certain medallions limiting their ability to accept fare-paying
passengers at SFO. The agency has also granted preferences in
accepting passengers at SFO and in permit operation to persons who
purchased medallions under the Program.[BN]

SOGOU INC: Dore Suit Hits Share Price Drop
------------------------------------------

Holdings Limited, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Credit Suisse

Securities Limited and Does 1 through 25, inclusive, Defendants,
Case No. 19CIV00951 (Cal. Super., February 19, 2019), seeks
compensatory damages, reasonable costs and expenses, counsel fees
and expert fees, rescission or a rescissory measure of damages and
such other and further relief under the Securities Act of 1933.

Sogou is a Chinese mobile search engine, the fourth largest
Internet company in China. It issued American Depository Shares
(ADS) in an initial public offering on November 9, 2017.

The complaint asserts that their offering documents failed to
disclose that Sogou was under investigation by Chinese regulators
for its existing advertising and audit procedures, claiming that
they were insufficient to safeguard against compliance violations
with governing Chinese regulations. It also failed to disclose that
the company was facing increased competition and market saturation
resulting in the company being unable to grow as claimed and that
its historic revenue growth was artificially inflated as a result
of partnerships with Tencent, another Chinese internet company.

On February 19, 2019, Sogou's ADS reached a low of $5.95 per ADS,
closing at $6.13 per ADS, less than half their original IPO selling
price. Dore purchased Sogou ADS during the IPO and lost.

SOUTH FLORIDA RACING: Lawrence Seeks Certification of FACTA Class
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiff in the lawsuit titled SADIKI LAWRENCE, individually,
and on behalf of others similarly situated v. SOUTH FLORIDA RACING
ASSOCIATION, LLC, d/b/a "HIALEAH PARK", a Florida limited liability
company, Case No. 1:18-cv-24264-UU (S.D. Fla.), seeks certification
of a class:

     All persons in the United States who, at any time between
     April 4, 2016 and April 4, 2018 (the "Class Period"),
     performed a cash-access transaction at Hialeah Park casino
     with a debit card or credit card associated with Visa USA,
     Incorporated, Visa International, or MasterCard
     International Incorporated that was processed via technology
     provided by Everi Payments, Inc., formerly known as Global
     Cash Access, Inc.

Mr. Lawrence alleges that for over two years preceding the filing
of this action, the Defendant systematically violated the most
basic, easy-to-comply-with federal consumer protection statute on
the books--the truncation provision of the Fair and Accurate Credit
Transactions Act.  He contends that to comply with this important
statute, which Congress enacted in an effort to curb identity theft
and other financial evils, all Hialeah Park needed to do was
refrain from printing transaction receipts bearing more than the
last five digits of its customers' credit and debit card
numbers.[CC]

TOP'S PERSONNEL: Bid for Class Certification Denied
---------------------------------------------------
In the class action lawsuit, APPLIED UNDERWRITERS, INC., a Nebraska
Corporation, the Plaintiff and counterclaim defendant, vs. TOP'S
PERSONNEL, INC., a New Jersey Corporation, Defendant and
counterclaimant, Case No. 8:15-cv-00090-JMG-CRZ (D. Neb.), the Hon.
Judge John M. Gerrard has entered an order:

   1. adopting Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendation that
the Court deny Top's Personnel's Motion for Class Certification;

   2. overruling Top's' objection to the findings and
recommendation; and

   3. denying Top's' Motion for Class Certification.

The Court held that Top's had the burden of proving it met the
requirements of Fed.R.Civ.P. 23(b)(3). Top's contention that a
class action is the superior way to resolve this controversy
because it was the first New Jersey plaintiff to sue is not
compelling. The Court finds no error in, and will adopt, the
Magistrate Judge's finding that the superiority requirement of Rule
23(b)(3) was not proven.

As reported by the Class Action Reporter, Top's moved the Court for
an order granting class certification.  The proposed Nationwide
Class is defined as:

     All individuals or entities in the United States who
     purchased an EquityComp or SoultionOne workers' compensation
     insurance policy from Applied Underwriters, Inc. or any of
     its affiliates, and subsequently executed a promissory note
     with Applied Underwriters, Inc. or one of its affiliates
     relating to sums allegedly owed pursuant to either the
     EquityComp or SolutionOne programs.

In the alternative, Top's sought to certify a New Jersey statewide
subclass:

    New Jersey Subclass:

    All individuals or entities in the state of New Jersey who
     purchased an EquityComp or SolutionOne workers' compensation
     insurance policy from Applied Underwriters, Inc. or any of
     its affiliates, and subsequently executed a promissory note
     with Applied Underwriters, Inc. or one of its affiliates
     relating to sums allegedly owed pursuant to either the
     EquityComp or SolutionOne programs.[CC]

UNITED MICROELECTRONICS: Meyer Files Securities Class Action in NY
------------------------------------------------------------------
Kevin D. Meyer, Individually and On Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, Plaintiff, v. United Microelectronics Corporation,
Shan-Chieh Chienhas, Jason Wang, Po-Wen Yen, and Chitung Liu,
Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-02304 (S.D. N.Y., March 14, 2019) is a
federal securities class action on behalf of a class consisting of
all persons other than the Defendants who purchased or otherwise
acquired UMC securities between October 28, 2015 and November 1,
2018, both dates inclusive, seeking to recover damages caused by
Defendants' violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue
remedies under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

According to the complaint, the Defendants made materially false
and misleading statements regarding UMC's business, operational and
compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or
misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) UMC
conspired with Fujian to steal trade secrets from Micron relating
to its research and development of DRAM; (ii) UMC hired former
Micron employees for the purpose of stealing such information from
Micron; (iii) the foregoing conduct placed UMC and certain of its
employees at an increased risk of criminal and regulatory
investigation by the U.S. government; and (iv) as a result, UMC's
public statements were materially false and misleading at all
relevant times.

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, says the complaint.

Plaintiff acquired UMC securities at artificially inflated prices
during the Class Period.

UMC was founded in 1980 and is headquartered in Hsinchu City,
Taiwan. UMC provides semiconductor wafer foundry solutions.[BN]

UNITED PARCEL: Szewczyk Seeks Wages & OT for Drivers & Helpers
--------------------------------------------------------------
A class action lawsuit against United Parcel Service seeks to
recover unpaid wages and overtime compensation pursuant to the Fair
Labor Standards Act, the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection
Law, and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act.  The Defendant has
willfully and deliberately failed to pay its delivery drivers and
driver helpers -- individuals who assist drivers in the delivery of
packages -- overtime compensation for all hours worked beyond 40 in
a work week, in violation of the FLSA.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiffs allege that they and
Defendant's delivery drivers and driver helpers worked
"off-the-clock" (i.e., they worked hours for which they were not
paid) in order to pick-up, transfer and deliver their assigned
packages and meet Defendant's pre-determined delivery and payroll
goals. As a result of these common practices, delivery drivers and
driver helpers, including Plaintiffs, were not paid for all hours
worked, including during lunch breaks when they continued to work
and deliver packages.

United Parcel Service is an American multinational package delivery
and supply chain management company.

The case is styled TODD SZEWCZYK, 15 West Street Parkesburg, PA
19365; JUAN DONES-CRUZ 4345 Elizabeth Street, Philadelphia, PA
19124; and KIMBERLY RUCKER, 5290 Marlboro Pike, Apt. 402 Capitol

WEICHERT CO: Misclassified Workers, Kennedy Suit Says
-----------------------------------------------------
James Kennedy, II, On behalf of himself and all other similarly
situated persons, Plaintiff, v. Weichert Co., d/b/a as Weichert,
Realtors, Defendant, Case No. ESX-L-002266-19 (N.J. Super. Ct.,
Essex Cty., March 25, 2019) is a putative class action against the
Defendant alleging that Plaintiff and the putative class members
were misclassified as independent contractors, and consequently
seek to recover significant economic damages sustained as a result
of Defendant's unlawful withholdings or deductions from, and/or
unlawful diversions of, their wages and compensation in violation
of the New Jersey Wage Payment Law ("NJWPL").

The Defendant Weichert's aforementioned unlawful deductions from
the Plaintiff and Putative Class Members' commissions ultimately
decreased the amount of wages they were entitled to under the
NJWPL, notes the Plaintiff. These deductions deny them compensation
to which they are legally entitled to receive, says the complaint.

Plaintiff contracted with Defendant Weichert to perform the duties
of a "real estate salesperson", in accordance with the RESBA, from
August 8, 2012, through to November 6, 2018, out of Defendant's
Howell, New Jersey real estate office.

Defendant Weichert is a for-profit corporation, organized and
existing under the laws of the State of New Jersey.[BN]

ZHEJIANG HUAHAI: Lewis Suit Transferred to District of New Jersey
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The case, LOREN LEWIS individually and on behalf of a class of
similarly situated individuals, the Plaintiff, v. ZHEJIANG HUAHAI
PHARMACEUTICAL CO., LTD., a Chinese corporation and HUAHAI US,
INC., a New Jersey corporation, the Defendants, Case No.
1:18-cv-00247( Filed Oct. 16, 2018), was transferred from the U.S.
District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee to the U.S.
District Court for the District of New Jersey on Feb. 20, 2019.
The District of New Jersey Court Clerk assigned Case No.
1:2019cv06209 to the proceeding.

The lawsuit targets Defendants' manufacturing, distribution, and
sale of valsartan containing an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient
adulterated with N-nitrosodimethylamine, a carcinogenic substance.

Valsartan is a prescription medication mainly used for the
treatment of high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. Due
to manufacturing defects originating in Zhejiang Huahai
Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.'s facility in China, certain generic
formulations of valsartan have allegedly become adulterated with an
organic chemical known as N-nitrosodimethylamine.

On July 13, 2018, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration ("FDA")
announced a voluntary recall of several brands of
valsartan-containing generic medications, including those
manufactured and distributed by the the Defendants. The recall was
due to the presence of N-nitrosodimethylamine in the recalled
products. Generic drugs such as valsartan are marketed and sold to
consumers such as the Plaintiff when the patent for the brand-name
version of the drug expires, and other competitors are able to seek
approval for, market, and sell bioequivalent versions of the
brand-name drug. These generic equivalents, such as valsartan, are
supposed to be of equal quality and equal safety.

The Plaintiff and the putative class members were injured by paying
the full purchase price of their valsartan-containing medications
and paying for incidental medical expenses. These medications are
worthless because they are contaminated with carcinogenic and
harmful N-nitrosodimethylamine and are not fit for human
consumption, the lawsuit says.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff brings this action both
individually and on behalf of the putative class members for
equitable relief and recover economic damages and restitution for:
(i) violations of the Tennessee Products Liability Act; (ii)
failure to warn; breach of contract; breach of implied warranty of
merchantability; unjust enrichment; fraudulent concealment;
conversion; negligence; and gross negligence.

Zhejiang Huahai provides formulations, active pharmaceutical
ingredients, and intermediates in China and internationally.[BN]
