himself and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff v. THE ADLER
PLANETARIUM, Defendant, Case No. 1:19-cv-03246 (N.D. Ill., May 14,
2019).

The Plaintiff filed the case under the Americans with Disabilities
Act.

AETNA LIFE: Kazda Sues Over Denied Surgical Treatment
-----------------------------------------------------
MICHALA KAZDA, on behalf of herself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. AETNA LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY, Defendant,
Case No. 4:19-cv-02512 (N.D. Cal., May 9, 2019) seeks to address
Aetna's practice of improperly denying claims for surgical
treatment of lipedema made by patients under Aetna plans.

Aetna Life Insurance Company is in the business of insuring and/or
administering health insurance plans (both fully insured and
self-insured), most of which are employer-sponsored and governed by
the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA"),
("Aetna plans").

According to the complaint, Aetna denies claims for the surgical
treatment of lipedema on the basis they are cosmetic and excluded.
Lipedema is a rare condition that is chronic, progressive, painful,
and immobilizing. It involves an abnormal buildup of adipose (fat)
tissue, usually in the lower body but sometimes in the arms. Often
misdiagnosed as obesity or lymphedema, lipedema primarily affects
women. Surgical treatment of
lipedema is not cosmetic because it treats the symptoms of
lipedema, pain and immobility. These are functional problems, not
cosmetic ones. Aetna has consistently and erroneously rejected
claims for the surgical treatment of lipedema as cosmetic, says the
complaint.

Plaintiff was at all relevant times covered under an employee
benefit plan regulated by ERISA and pursuant to which Plaintiff is
entitled to health care benefits.

Aetna administers and makes benefit determinations related to ERISA
health care plans around the country.[BN]

ALPINE TOWING: Jimenez Seeks Overtime Pay
-----------------------------------------
A class action complaint has been filed against Alpine Towing, Inc.
(ATI) and Larry Saravia for violations of the Fair Labor Standards
Act (FLSA). The case is captioned VICTOR JIMENEZ, and all others
similarly situated under 29 U.S.C. § 216(b), Plaintiff(s), v.
ALPINE TOWING, INC. a Florida corporation, and LARRY SARAVIA,
individually, Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-21643-XXXX (S.D. Fla.,
April 26, 2019). During his employment, Plaintiff Victor Jimenez
worked in excess of 40 hours per week, alternating each week
between working an average of 60 hours per week and 72 hours per
week. However, ATI allegedly failed to compensate Plaintiff, and
all others similarly situated, at the statutorily prescribed
overtime rate of time-and-one-half his regular hourly rate for all
hours worked in excess of 40 per week. Moreover, Defendants also
made certain deductions from Plaintiff's wages as an attempt to
evade the overtime requirements of the FLSA

Founded by Larry Saravia, ATI operates and specializes in
performing towing services to automobiles. [BN]

ARTHUR J. GALLAGHER: Bid to Dismiss Artex Clients' Suit Underway
----------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the defendants in the
class action suit initiated by micro-captive clients of Artex Risk
Solutions, Inc., have filed motions to dismiss to the case.

On December 7, 2018, a class action lawsuit was filed against the
company, its subsidiary Artex Risk Solutions, Inc. (which the
company refers to as Artex) and other defendants including Tribeca,
in the District of Arizona. An amended complaint was filed on March
29, 2019.

The named plaintiffs are micro-captive clients of Artex or Tribeca
and their related entities and owners who had IRC Section 831(b)
tax benefits disallowed by the IRS. The complaint attempts to state
various causes of action and alleges that the defendants defrauded
the plaintiffs by marketing and managing micro-captives with the
knowledge that the captives did not constitute bona fide insurance
and thus would not qualify for tax benefits.

The named plaintiffs are seeking to certify a class of all persons
who were assessed back taxes, penalties or interest by the IRS as a
result of their ownership of or involvement in an IRS Section
831(b) micro-captive formed or managed by Artex or Tribeca during
the time period January 1, 2005 to the present.

The complaint does not specify the amount of damages sought by the
named plaintiffs or the putative class. The defendants have filed
motions to dismiss, arguing that the case should be put into
arbitration and that the amended complaint fails to state a claim.


Arthur J. Gallagher said, "We will vigorously defend against the
lawsuit. Litigation is inherently uncertain, however, and it is not
possible for us to predict the ultimate outcome of this matter and
the financial impact to us."

Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., together with its subsidiaries, provides
insurance brokerage, consulting, and third party claims settlement
and administration services to entities in the United States and
internationally. The company offers its services through a network
of correspondent insurance brokers and consultants. Arthur J.
Gallagher & Co. was founded in 1927 and is headquartered in Rolling

AVON PRODUCTS: J&J Removes Myers Suit to C.D. California
--------------------------------------------------------
Johnson & Johnson removed the case, DOREEN MYERS, the Plaintiffs,
vs. AVON PRODUCTS, INC., et al., the Defendants, Case No. JCCP 4674
/ BC720136, from Superior Court of California, Los Angeles County,
to U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on
April 29, 2019. The Central District of California Court Clerk
assigned Case No. 2:19-cv-03563 to the proceeding.

On February 13, 2019, Imerys Talc America, Inc., and two
affiliates, Imerys Talc Vermont, Inc., and Imerys Talc Canada,
Inc., filed a voluntary chapter 11 petition, commencing a
reorganization case styled: In re: Imerys Talc America, Inc., et
al., Case No. 19-10289-LSS, in the United States Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware. Since the Chapter 11 Case was
commenced, the Debtors have remained as debtors in possession under
11 U.S.C. section 1101 and have the rights, powers, and duties set
out in U.S.C. sections 1107 and 1108.

The suit seeks to recover damages as a result of the Defendants'
negligent failure to warn and the design defect of their
talcum-based products.

Johnson & Johnson designed, developed, manufactured, tested,
packaged, promoted, marketed, advertised, distributed, labeled, and
sold the products to consumers, and Imerys mined, extracted,
sorted, milled, processed, treated, processed, formulated,
packaged, sold, and shipped the talcum powder that comprises the
products to Johnson & Johnson.

Despite the mounting scientific and medical evidence regarding talc
use and ovarian cancer development over the past several decades,
none of the warnings on product labels or in other marketing
informed users, or similarly situated individuals, that use of the
Products in the genital area could lead to an increased risk of
ovarian cancer. For example, the only warnings on the Baby Powder
label are to "keep powder away from child's face to avoid
inhalation, which can cause breathing problems," and to "avoid
contact with eyes", the lawsuit says.[BN]

BOARDWALK PIPELINE: Hearing on Bid to Dismiss Set for July 2019
---------------------------------------------------------------
Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, LP said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for
the quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the court has
established a briefing schedule to consider a motion to dismiss a
class action lawsuit.  A hearing on the request will be held July
2019.

On May 25, 2018, plaintiffs Tsemach Mishal and Paul Berger (on
behalf of themselves and the purported class, Plaintiffs) initiated
a purported class action in the Court of Chancery of the State of
Delaware (the Court) against the following defendants: the
Partnership, Boardwalk GP, LP (Boardwalk GP), Boardwalk GP, LLC and
Boardwalk Pipelines Holding Corp. (BPHC) (together, Defendants),
regarding the potential exercise by Boardwalk GP of its right to
purchase the issued and outstanding common units of the Partnership
not already owned by Boardwalk GP or its affiliates (Purchase
Right).

On June 25, 2018, Plaintiffs and Defendants entered into a
Stipulation and Agreement of Compromise and Settlement, subject to
the approval of the Court (the Proposed Settlement).

Under the terms of the Proposed Settlement, the lawsuit would be
dismissed, and related claims against the Defendants would be
released by the Plaintiffs, if BPHC, the sole member of the general
partner of Boardwalk GP, elected to cause Boardwalk GP to exercise
its right to purchase the issued and outstanding common units of
the Partnership for a cash purchase price, as determined by the
Partnership's Third Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited
Partnership, as amended (the Limited Partnership Agreement), and
gave notice of such election as provided in the Limited Partnership
Agreement within a period specified by the Proposed Settlement.

On June 29, 2018, Boardwalk GP elected to exercise the Purchase
Right and gave notice within the period specified by the Proposed
Settlement. On July 18, 2018, Boardwalk GP completed the purchase
of the Partnership's common units pursuant to the Purchase Right.

On September 28, 2018, the Court denied approval of the Proposed
Settlement. On February 11, 2019, a substitute verified class
action complaint was filed in this proceeding. The Court has
established a briefing schedule for a motion to dismiss and a
hearing has been scheduled in July 2019.

Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, LP, through its subsidiaries, owns and
operates integrated natural gas and natural gas liquids and other
hydrocarbons (NGLs) pipeline and storage systems in the United
States. The company operates natural gas pipeline systems in the
Gulf Coast region, Oklahoma, and Arkansas, as well as the

According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period
made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose
that: (1) Boeing's 737 MAX airplanes were not as safe as previous
models, therefore Boeing included undisclosed "hacks" created by
engineering compromises and the lack of safety features which
Boeing sold as "optional" add-ons which were designed to help
address these safety concerns; (2) most airlines did not purchase
these safety "options"; (3) the Federal Aviation Administration
granted Boeing its own oversight and certification of Boeing's new
flight control system, or Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation
Systems, which was a clear conflict of interest as Boeing was
rushing the 737 MAX airplanes to market; and (4) as a result of the
foregoing, Boeing's public statement were materially false and
misleading at all relevant times. When the true details entered the
market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

BRIXMOR PROPERTY: $19.5MM Settlement Balance Remains in Escrow
--------------------------------------------------------------
Brixmor Property Group, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for
the quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that a settlement
balance of $19.5 million remains in escrow pending final class
distribution in the lawsuit initiated by Westchester Putnam
Counties Heavy & Highway Laborers Local 60 Benefit Funds.

On December 13, 2017, the United States District Court for the
Southern District of New York granted final approval of the
settlement of the previously disclosed putative securities class
action complaint filed in March 2016 by the Westchester Putnam
Counties Heavy & Highway Laborers Local 60 Benefit Funds related to
the review conducted by the Audit Committee of the Board of
Directors.

Pursuant to the approved settlement, without any admission of
liability, the Company will pay $28.0 million to settle the claims.
This amount is within the coverage amount of the Company's
applicable insurance policies and has been funded into escrow by
the insurance carriers. The settlement provides for the release of,
among others, the Company, its subsidiaries, and their respective
current and former officers, directors and employees from the
claims that were or could have been asserted in the class action
litigation.

During the year ended December 31, 2018, $8.5 million of the
settlement amount was released from escrow per the court approved
settlement agreement for the payment of plaintiff's legal fees. The
remaining settlement balance of $19.5 million remains in escrow
pending final class distribution.

As of March 31, 2019, the $19.5 million amount is included in
Accounts payable, accrued expenses and other liabilities in the
Company's unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Because
the settlement amount is within the coverage amount of the
Company's applicable insurance policies, the Company accrued a
receivable of $19.5 million as of March 31, 2019.

This amount is included in Accounts receivable, net in the
Company's unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

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

trust. The Company owns and operates grocery anchored community and

COMMUNITY HEALTH: Class Cert. Bid in Tennessee Suit Still Pending
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Community Health Systems, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 1, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the motion for class
certification of a consolidated lawsuit in Tennessee remains
pending.

Three purported class action cases have been filed in the United
States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee; namely,
Norfolk County Retirement System v. Community Health Systems, Inc.,
et al., filed May 9, 2011; De Zheng v. Community Health Systems,
Inc., et al., filed May 12, 2011; and Minneapolis Firefighters
Relief Association v. Community Health Systems, Inc., et al., filed
June 21, 2011.

All three seek class certification on behalf of purchasers of the
Company's common stock between July 27, 2006 and April 11, 2011 and
allege that misleading statements resulted in artificially inflated
prices for the Company's common stock.

In December 2011, the cases were consolidated for pretrial purposes
and NYC Funds and its counsel were selected as lead plaintiffs/lead
plaintiffs' counsel. In lieu of ruling on the Company's motion to
dismiss, the court permitted the plaintiffs to file a first amended
consolidated class action complaint, which was filed on October 5,
2015.

The Company's motion to dismiss was filed on November 4, 2015 and
oral argument was held on April 11, 2016. The Company's motion to
dismiss was granted on June 16, 2016 and on June 27, 2016, the
plaintiffs filed a notice of appeal to the Sixth Circuit Court of
Appeals. The matter was heard on May 3, 2017.

On December 13, 2017, the Sixth Circuit reversed the trial court's
dismissal of the case and remanded it to the District Court. The
Company filed a renewed partial motion to dismiss on February 9,
2018, which was denied by the District Court on September 24, 2018.


The Company also filed a petition for a writ of certiorari to the
United States Supreme Court on April 18, 2018 seeking review of the
Sixth Circuit's decision. The United States Supreme Court denied
the petition for a writ of certiorari on October 1, 2018.
Plaintiff’s motion for class certification is pending.

The Company believes this consolidated matter is without merit and
will vigorously defend this case.

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

------------------------------------------------------------
Community Health Systems, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 1, 2019, for the

application for writ of certiorari in the case, Gibson,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated v.
National Healthcare of Leesville, Inc. d/b/a Byrd Regional Medical
Center, to the Louisiana Supreme Court.

This case is a purported class action lawsuit filed in the 30th

improperly asserting hospital liens against third-party tortfeasors
and seeking class certifications for any similarly situated
plaintiffs.

summary judgment. The company appealed both rulings to the
Louisiana Third Circuit Court of Appeals, which affirmed the trial
court's decisions on March 7, 2019. The company filed an
application for writ of certiorari to the Louisiana Supreme Court.

Plaintiffs, v. COSTCO WHOLESALE CORPORATION, and DOES 1 through 25,

existing minimal diversity. The United States District Court for
the Central District of California assigned Case No. 2:19-cv-03454
to the proceeding.

In this complaint, Plaintiff Silverio Nevarez and Efren Correa
assert six causes of action: failure to pay overtime wages due;
failure to provide itemized wage statement to employees; failure to
pay upon termination or quitting employee; failure to pay minimum
wages; unfair business practice; and claim for a civil penalty.

CRAFTED BEEKMAN: Jenkins Sues Over Illegally Retained Gratuities
----------------------------------------------------------------
KEVIN JENKINS, on behalf of himself and others similarly situated,
Plaintiff, v. CRAFTED BEEKMAN, LLC d/b/a CRAFTED at the BEEKMAN
HOTEL and TOM COLICCHIO, Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-04207-GHW
(S.D. N.Y., May 9, 2019) is a "wage and hour" class action in which
Plaintiff claims Defendants, his employers, illegally retained
substantial portions of the gratuities of Plaintiff and similarly
situated employees of Defendants.

According to the complaint, the Defendants received voluntary
gratuities from banquet customers above and beyond the billed
charges for the customers' events. These voluntary gratuities were
not distributed by Defendants to Plaintiff and similarly situated
employees but were instead kept by individuals in management,
including Defendant Colicchio's niece, Jennifer Colicchio. The
Defendants provided invoices to banquet customers at each event
that did not provide any further explanation of the nature of the
charge, and the invoices did not state that the "Administrative
Fee" was not a gratuity. Further, on receipts given to customers
together with paid invoices, the charge was explicitly referred to
as a "Service Charge(s)."

Plaintiff and similarly situated employees sustained substantial
losses from Defendants' withholding of these gratuities. Defendants
knew that retaining Plaintiff's and Class members' tips would
economically injure Plaintiff and the Class members, and violated
state and federal laws, says the complaint.

Plaintiff Kevin Jenkins has been employed by Defendants as a server
since in or about May 2018.

DYNAGAS LNG: Bragar Eagel Files Securities Fraud Classs Action Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit
has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District
of New York on behalf of all investors that purchased Dynagas LNG
Partners LP (NYSE: DLNG) securities between February 16, 2018 and
March 21, 2019 (the "Class Period").  Investors have until July 16,
2019 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the
lawsuit.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants
made materially false and misleading statements and omitted
material adverse facts to conceal the unfavorable terms of the
company's long-term contracts on its liquid natural gas ships,
Arctic Aurora and Ob River, and its resulting inability to sustain
its quarterly distributions.  As a result of defendants' false and
misleading statements and omissions, Dynagas securities traded at
artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.  Such
inflation was removed when it was revealed that the Arctic Aurora
and the Ob River were commencing employment under new extended
charter contracts which were at lower rates compared to the
previous charter contracts, thereby undermining the company's
ability to make future distributions.

If you purchased Dynagas securities, have information, 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 contact:

that purchased securities of Dynagas LNG Partners LP ("Dynagas" or
the "Company") during the period from February 16, 2018 through
March 21, 2019, inclusive (the "Class Period" and the"Class"). The

The class action asserts claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that,
during the Class Period, the Defendants made materially false and
misleading statements and omitted material adverse facts to conceal
the unfavorable terms of the Company's long-term contracts on its
liquid natural gas ships, Arctic Aurora and Ob River, and its
resulting inability to sustain its quarterly distributions. As a
result of the Defendants' false and misleading statements and
omissions, Dynagas securities traded at artificially inflated
prices during the Class Period. Such inflation was removed when it
was revealed that the Arctic Aurora and the Ob River were
commencing employment under new extended charter contracts which
were at lower rates compared to the previous charter contracts,
thereby undermining the Company's ability to make future
distributions. The complaint seeks an award of damages, and
interest thereon, to plaintiff and other Class members.

If you wish to serve as a lead plaintiff in this matter, you must
file a motion with the Court no later than July 16, 2019. Any
member of the proposed Class may move the Court to serve as a lead
plaintiff in this matter through counsel of their choice, or they

------------------------------------------------------------
Ferroglobe PLC said in its Form 20-F report filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for the
fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, that the company has been
named as a defendant in two class action lawsuits related to its
public disclosures prior to its November 26, 2018 third quarter

New York in Manhattan, seeking money damages for alleged violations
of U.S. securities laws.  

Plaintiff alleges, inter alia, that certain of the Company's public
disclosures prior to its November 26, 2018 third quarter earnings
press release were materially false or misleading when made and
failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's
business, operations, and prospects.  

The company further understand that, on March 19, 2019, another
claimed shareholder plaintiff, Jam-Wood Holdings LLC, filed a
substantially identical complaint in the same court.  

Neither plaintiff has effected service of process, such that no
response from the defendants is yet due.  

The Company and the individual defendants believe these plaintiffs'
allegations are of no merit and intend to defend themselves
vigorously, if and when the plaintiffs effect service of process,
including by moving to dismiss the subject complaints at the
appropriate time.

FREDDIE MAC: Bid to Appeal Class Cert. Ruling Denied
----------------------------------------------------
Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 1, 2019,
for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the Court of
Appeals has denied plaintiffs' petition for leave to appeal the
decision of the district court denying  their motion for class
certification in the case, Ohio Public Employees Retirement System
vs. Freddie Mac, Syron, Et Al..

This putative securities class action lawsuit was filed against
Freddie Mac and certain former officers on January 18, 2008 in the
U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio purportedly
on behalf of a class of purchasers of Freddie Mac stock from August
1, 2006 through November 20, 2007.

Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) later intervened as
Conservator, and the plaintiff amended its complaint on several
occasions. The plaintiff alleged, among other things, that the
defendants violated federal securities laws by making false and
misleading statements concerning the company's business, risk
management, and the procedures the company put into place to
protect the company from problems in the mortgage industry. The
plaintiff seeks unspecified damages and interest, and reasonable
costs and expenses, including attorney and expert fees.

In October 2013, defendants filed motions to dismiss the complaint.
In October 2014, the District Court granted defendants' motions and
dismissed the case in its entirety against all defendants, with
prejudice. In November 2014, plaintiff filed a notice of appeal in
the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

On July 20, 2016, the Court of Appeals reversed the District
Court's dismissal and remanded the case to the District Court for
further proceedings. On August 14, 2018, the District Court denied
the plaintiff's motion for class certification.

On January 23, 2019, the Court of Appeals denied plaintiff's
petition for leave to appeal that decision.

At present, it is not possible for us to predict the probable
outcome of this lawsuit or any potential effect on our business,
financial condition, liquidity, or results of operations. In
addition, we are unable to reasonably estimate the possible loss or
range of possible loss in the event of an adverse judgment in the
foregoing matter due to the following factors, among others:
pre-trial litigation is inherently uncertain; while the District
Court denied plaintiff's motion for class certification, this
denial may be appealed upon the entry of final judgment; and the
District Court has not yet ruled upon motions for summary judgment.
In particular, absent a final resolution of whether a class will be
certified, the identification of a class if one is certified, and
the identification of the alleged statement or statements that
survive dispositive motions, we cannot reasonably estimate any
possible loss or range of possible loss.

FREDDIE MAC: Dismissal in Jacobs and Hindes Suit Affirmed
---------------------------------------------------------
Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 1, 2019,
for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the Court of
Appeals has affirmed the dismissal in Jacobs and Hindes vs. Federal
Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and Treasury.

This case was filed on August 17, 2015, as a putative class action
lawsuit purportedly on behalf of a class of holders of preferred
stock or common stock issued by the Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae.

The case was also filed as a shareholder derivative lawsuit,
purportedly on behalf of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae as "nominal"
defendants.

The complaint alleges, among other items, that the August 2012
amendment to the Purchase Agreement violated applicable state law
and constituted a breach of contract, as well as a breach of
covenants of good faith and fair dealing. Plaintiffs seek equitable
and injunctive relief (including restitution of the monies paid by
Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae to Treasury under the net worth sweep
dividend), compensatory damages, attorneys' fees, costs and
expenses.

On November 27, 2017, the Court dismissed the case with prejudice
after defendants filed a motion to dismiss. On December 21, 2017,
plaintiffs filed a notice of appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals
for the Third Circuit, and on November 14, 2018, the Court of
Appeals affirmed the dismissal.

FREDDIE MAC: Suit Over Preferred Stock Purchase Deal Ongoing
------------------------------------------------------------
Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 1, 2019,
for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the company
continues to defend a class action suit entitled, In re Fannie
Mae/Freddie Mac Senior Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement Class
Action Litigations.

This case is the result of the consolidation of three putative
class action lawsuits:

     1. Cacciapelle and Bareiss vs. Federal National Mortgage
Association, Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation and FHFA, filed
on July 29, 2013;

     2. American European Insurance Company vs. Federal National
Mortgage Association, Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation and
FHFA, filed on July 30, 2013; and

     3. Marneu Holdings, Co. vs. FHFA, Treasury, Federal National
Mortgage Association and Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation,
filed on September 18, 2013. (The Marneu case was also filed as a
shareholder derivative lawsuit.)

A consolidated amended complaint was filed in December 2013. In the
consolidated amended complaint, plaintiffs allege, among other
items, that the August 2012 amendment to the Purchase Agreement
breached Freddie Mac's and Fannie Mae's respective contracts with
the holders of junior preferred stock and common stock and the
covenant of good faith and fair dealing inherent in such contracts.


Plaintiffs sought unspecified damages, equitable and injunctive
relief, and costs and expenses, including attorney and expert
fees.

The Cacciapelle and American European Insurance Company lawsuits
were filed purportedly on behalf of a class of purchasers of junior
preferred stock issued by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae who held stock
prior to, and as of, August 17, 2012. The Marneu lawsuit was filed
purportedly on behalf of a class of purchasers of junior preferred
stock and purchasers of common stock issued by Freddie Mac or
Fannie Mae over a not-yet-defined period of time.

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

GOOGLE INC: AdTrader Suit in Process of Seeing Class Certification
------------------------------------------------------------------
Greg Sterling, writing for Marketing Land, reports that in 2017,
Google agreed to provide refunds to selected advertisers using
DoubleClick Bid Manager (now called Display & Video 360) where ads
were served on sites that had fraudulent or invalid traffic.
Reportedly, hundreds of marketers were eligible, but a class-action
lawsuit by AdTrader asserts that Google improperly withheld those
refund payments, according to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ)

Prior agreement to refund 'platform fee.'  When the fraud was
initially discovered, Google said it would repay its "platform
fee," which typically represents between 7% to 10% of the total
value of the ad spend. Some marketers expressed dissatisfaction
with the refund scheme. However, according to the WSJ, "Google said
it wasn't in a position to return money that had already flowed
from its buying tool to third-party online ad marketplaces where
publishers were selling ad space."

AdTrader initiated the class action suit against Google in
California federal court, arguing that Google had "illegally
appropriated" promised advertiser refunds.  The lawsuit alleges
that Google never actually issued any refunds, after reclaiming
money from publishers accused of having inflated or fraudulent
traffic.

Alleged failure to pay $75 million. Unsealed court documents
reviewed by the WSJ apparently reflected that Google had not paid
as much as $75 million in potential refunds tied to "ad
marketplaces that Google itself owns and fully controls: AdX and
AdSense."

Various third analyst and monitoring firms have estimated ad fraud
amounts to more than $16 billion globally. Other reports have
different figures. A range of U.S. estimates, including from the
Association of National Advertisers, assert that brands will lose
between $6 and $7 billion this year on fraudulent (non-human)
traffic.

Why you should care. The AdTrader lawsuit is still in process and
seeks class certification for agencies and advertisers that used
DoubleClick Ad Exchange (AdX) and AdSense during the relevant time
frame. It also seeks triple damages and punitive damages as well as
injunctive relief against Google. AdTrader accuses Google of being
a monopolist and positions itself as a champion of advertiser
interests. [GN]


GRUPO TELEVISA: Bid to Dismiss FIFA-Related Suit in NY Denied
-------------------------------------------------------------
Grupo Televisa, S.A.B. said in its Form 20-F report filed with the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 30, 2019, for the
fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, that a New York court has
denied the company's motion to dismiss the purported stockholder
class action suit related to the company's alleged failure to to
disclose alleged involvement in bribery activities relating to
certain executives of Federation Internationale de Football
Association ("FIFA").

On March 5, 2018, a purported stockholder class action lawsuit was
filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District
of New York alleging securities law violations in connection with
allegedly misleading statements and/or omissions in the Company's
public disclosures.

The lawsuit alleges that the Company and two of its executives
failed to disclose alleged involvement in bribery activities
relating to certain executives of Federation Internationale de
Football Association ("FIFA"), and wrongfully failed to disclose
weaknesses in the Company's internal control over its financial
reporting as of December 31, 2016.

On May 17, 2018, the Court appointed a lead plaintiff for the
putative stockholder class. On August 6, 2018, the lead plaintiff
filed an amended complaint. The Company thereupon filed a motion to
dismiss the amended complaint.

On March 25, 2019, the court issued a decision denying the
Company's motion to dismiss, holding that plaintiff's allegations,
if true, were sufficient to support a claim.

The Company believes that the lawsuit, and the material allegations
and claims therein, are without merit and intends to vigorously
defend against the lawsuit.

Grupo Televisa, S.A.B. operates as a media company in the
Spanish-speaking world. The company operates through four segments:
Content, Sky, Cable, and Other Businesses. Grupo Televisa, S.A.B.
was founded in 1990 and is based in Mexico City, Mexico.


HUMANA INSURANCE: Day Sues Under ERISA Over Denied Reimbursement
----------------------------------------------------------------
BRITTANY DAY, on her own behalf and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. HUMANA INSURANCE COMPANY, and OSF
HEALTHCARE SYSTEM GROUP MEDICAL AND DENTAL PLAN, Defendants, Case
No. 1:19-cv-03141 (N.D. Ill., May 9, 2019) is brought for breach of
fiduciary duty in relation to employee welfare benefit plans
pursuant to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974
("ERISA") which, in this case, involves group healthcare plans
administered by and/or insured by Humana.

Plaintiff brings this action on her own behalf and on behalf of all
others similarly situated to challenge Humana's deceptive and
fraudulent misrepresentations to its insured members that it
provides access and coverage for medically necessary cancer
treatment, yet despite proven efficacy of proton beam radiation
therapy ("PBRT") for treatment of a variety of cancers, including
the type of cancer that afflicted the Plaintiff and other class
members, denies reimbursement for such treatment for most types of
cancer based on internal guidelines that are outdated and
inconsistent with generally accepted standards of medical care.

Plaintiff specifically seeks reimbursement for the out-of-pocket
expenses she incurred when she was wrongfully denied coverage for
her medically necessary PBRT treatment and also seeks reimbursement
of out-of-pocket expenses incurred by other class members for PBRT
treatment, says the complaint.

Plaintiff was a resident of Toulon, Illinois, located in Stark
County, Illinois in the Peoria metropolitan area.

OSF HealthCare ("OSF"), which is engaged in the business of health
care in the Central and Northern Districts of Illinois, sponsored
the Plan, and Plaintiff received coverage under the Plan as a
"participant".[BN]

PLC, SHAUN THAXTER, MARK CROSSLEY, and CARY J. CLAIBORNE,

Plaintiff Michael Van Dorp brings class action on behalf of persons
or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired publicly traded
Indivior securities between March 10, 2015 and April 9, 2019. On
March 10, 2015, the Indivior PLC \=issued a press release

confirmation by the Board, which included Defendants Shaun Thaxter
and Mark Crossley, attesting to the accuracy of financial reporting
and a fair review of the development and performance of the
business, as well as the attendant opportunities and risks.

Plaintiff Van Dorp accuses Indivior of releasing materially false
or misleading statements. He alleges that the company and its
executives misrepresented and failed to disclose the following
adverse facts pertaining to the company's business, operations and
prospects, which were known to Defendants or recklessly disregarded
by them. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading
statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Indivior and its
executives engaged in an illicit nationwide scheme to increase
prescriptions of Suboxone Film; (2) Indivior illegally obtained
billions of dollars in revenue from Suboxone Film prescriptions by
deceiving health care providers and health care benefit programs;
(3) as a result of the aforementioned misconduct, Indivior would
face felony charges; and (4) due to the foregoing, Defendants'
statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were
materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at
all relevant times.

Defendant Indivior together with its subsidiaries, develops,
manufactures, and sells buprenorphine-based prescription drugs for
the treatment of opioid dependence. The Company's product pipeline
focuses on treating opioid use disorder, alcohol use disorder,
opiate overdose, and schizophrenia. Indivior is incorporated in and

of Santa Clara on April 29, 2019. The case was originally filed in
the California Superior Court on May 2, 2018 with Case No.
18CV327541.

The suit seeks to recover damages as a result of the Defendants'
negligent failure to warn and the design defect of their
talcum-based products.

Johnson & Johnson designed, developed, manufactured, tested,
packaged, promoted, marketed, advertised, distributed, labeled, and
sold the products to consumers, and Imerys mined, extracted,
sorted, milled, processed, treated, processed, formulated,
packaged, sold, and shipped the talcum powder that comprises the
products to Johnson & Johnson.

Despite the mounting scientific and medical evidence regarding talc
use and ovarian cancer development over the past several decades,
none of the warnings on product labels or in other marketing
informed users, or similarly situated individuals, that use of the
Products in the genital area could lead to an increased risk of
ovarian cancer. For example, the only warnings on the Baby Powder
label are to "keep powder away from child's face to avoid
inhalation, which can cause breathing problems," and to "avoid
contact with eyes", the lawsuit says.[BN]

JOHNSON & JOHNSON: Moves Calderon Talc Injury Suit to C.D. Calif.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Defendants Johnson & Johnson and Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc.
removed on April 24, 2019, the matter titled YVETTE MARIE CALDERON,
individually and as personal representative of the ESTATE OF
ELEANOR CALDERON v. JOHNSON & JOHNSON, a New Jersey corporation
doing business in California; JOHNSON & JOHNSON CONSUMER COMPANIES,
INC., a New Jersey corporation doing business in California; IMERYS
TALC AMERICA, INC., a Delaware Corporation with its principal place
of business in the State of California; and DOES 1 through 100,
inclusive, from the Superior Court of the State of California for
the County of Los Angeles to the U.S. District Court for the
Central District of California.

The District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 2:19-cv-03307 to the
proceeding.

The State Court Talc Claims against J&J center on allegations that
exposure to the Debtors' talc caused the Plaintiff's injuries,
specifically, ovarian and/or fallopian tube cancer.  J&J disputes
these allegations.

On May 1, 2018, the Plaintiff filed a Complaint in the Superior
Court of Santa Clara County, which generally alleges that the
Debtors' talc, through the habitual use of J&J cosmetic talcum
powder products, caused the Decedent's personal injury and/or
wrongful death.

The case was coordinated into the coordinated proceeding pending in
Los Angeles County Superior Court before Judge Maren Nelson: In re
Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Cases (JCCP No. 4872).  On February
20, 2019, leadership for all plaintiffs in the coordinated
proceeding filed a Second Amended Master Complaint ("Master
Complaint").

On February 13, 2019, Imerys Talc America, Inc., and two
affiliates, Imerys Talc Vermont, Inc., and Imerys Talc Canada, Inc.
(collectively, the "Debtors"), filed a voluntary chapter 11
petition, commencing a reorganization case styled: In re: Imerys
Talc America, Inc., et al., Case No. 19-10289-LSS, in the United
States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the "Chapter
11 Case").

Because the Debtors have historically been J&J's sole supplier of
cosmetic talc, the Debtors are routinely named as a co-defendant in
the actions in which the Talc Claims arise.  Even where the Debtors
are not so named as co-defendants, however, the Talc Claims are
related to the Debtors' bankruptcy.[BN]

JOHNSON & JOHNSON: Removed Davis Suit to C.D. California
--------------------------------------------------------
Johnson & Johnson removed case, BERT E. DAVIS, individually and as
successor-in-interest to CAROL ANN DAVIS, deceased, ELAINA BRANT
and GREGORY DAVIS, the Plaintiffs, vs. JOHNSON & JOHNSON, a New
Jersey corporation doing business in California; JOHNSON & JOHNSON
CONSUMER COMPANIES, INC., a New Jersey corporation doing business
in California; IMERYS TALC AMERICA, INC., a Delaware Corporation
with its principal place of business in the State of California;
and DOES 1 through 100, the Defendants, from the Superior Court of
the State of California for the County of Los Angeles to the U.S.
District Court for the Central District of California on April 29,
2019. The Central District of California Court Clerk assigned Case
No.: 2:19-cv-03527 to the proceeding.

On February 13, 2019, Imerys Talc America, Inc., and two
affiliates, Imerys Talc Vermont, Inc., and Imerys Talc Canada,
Inc., filed a voluntary chapter 11 petition, commencing a
reorganization case styled: In re: Imerys Talc America, Inc., et
al., Case No. 19-10289-LSS, in the United States Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware. Since the Chapter 11 Case was
commenced, the Debtors have remained as debtors in possession under
11 U.S.C. section 1101 and have the rights, powers, and duties set
out in U.S.C. sections 1107 and 1108.

The suit seeks to recover damages as a result of the Defendants'
negligent failure to warn and the design defect of their
talcum-based products.

Johnson & Johnson designed, developed, manufactured, tested,
packaged, promoted, marketed, advertised, distributed, labeled, and
sold the products to consumers, and Imerys mined, extracted,
sorted, milled, processed, treated, processed, formulated,
packaged, sold, and shipped the talcum powder that comprises the
products to Johnson & Johnson.

Despite the mounting scientific and medical evidence regarding talc
use and ovarian cancer development over the past several decades,
none of the warnings on product labels or in other marketing
informed users, or similarly situated individuals, that use of the
Products in the genital area could lead to an increased risk of
ovarian cancer. For example, the only warnings on the Baby Powder
label are to "keep powder away from child's face to avoid
inhalation, which can cause breathing problems," and to "avoid
contact with eyes", the lawsuit says.[BN]

JOHNSON & JOHNSON: Removes Call Talc Injury Suit to C.D. Calif.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Defendants Johnson & Johnson and Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc.
removed on April 24, 2019, the matter entitled STEPHANIE CALL v.
JOHNSON & JOHNSON; JOHNSON & JOHNSON CONSUMER INC. f/k/a JOHNSON &
JOHNSON CONSUMER COMPANIES, INC.; IMERYS TALC AMERICA, INC. f/k/a
LUZENAC AMERICA, INC., from the Superior Court of the State of
California for the County of Los Angeles to the U.S. District Court
for the Central District of California.

The District Court Clerk assigned Case No. 2:19-cv-03295 to the
proceeding.

The State Court Talc Claims against J&J center on allegations that
exposure to the Debtors' talc caused the Plaintiff's injuries,
specifically, ovarian and/or fallopian tube cancer.  J&J disputes
these allegations.

On November 14, 2016, the Plaintiff filed a Complaint in the
Superior Court of Los Angeles County, which generally alleges that
the Debtors' talc, through the habitual use of J&J cosmetic talcum
powder products, caused the Plaintiff's personal injury and/or
wrongful death.

The case was coordinated into the coordinated proceeding pending in
Los Angeles County Superior Court before Judge Maren Nelson: In re
Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Cases (JCCP No. 4872).  On February
20, 2019, leadership for all plaintiffs in the coordinated
proceeding filed a Second Amended Master Complaint ("Master
Complaint").

On February 13, 2019, Imerys Talc America, Inc., and two
affiliates, Imerys Talc Vermont, Inc., and Imerys Talc Canada, Inc.
(collectively, the "Debtors"), filed a voluntary chapter 11
petition, commencing a reorganization case styled: In re: Imerys
Talc America, Inc., et al., Case No. 19-10289-LSS, in the United
States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the "Chapter
11 Case").

Because the Debtors have historically been J&J's sole supplier of
cosmetic talc, the Debtors are routinely named as a co-defendant in
the actions in which the Talc Claims arise.  Even where the Debtors
are not so named as co-defendants, however, the Talc Claims are
related to the Debtors' bankruptcy.[BN]

interest, reasonable attorney's fees and costs, and all other

all other members of the class and collective minimum wage
compensation they were entitled to under the Federal Fair Labor
Standards Act, ("FLSA") and the Indiana Minimum Wage Law ("IMWL"),
says the complaint.

LEXICON PHARMACEUTICALS: Faces Manopla Class Action
---------------------------------------------------
Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 1, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the company has been
named as a defendant in a class action suit entitled, Daniel
Manopla v. Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Lonnel Coats and Jeffrey
L. Wade.

On January 28, 2019, a purported securities class action complaint
captioned Daniel Manopla v. Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Lonnel
Coats and Jeffrey L. Wade was filed against the Company, and
certain of its officers in the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of Texas, Houston Division.

The lawsuit purports to be a class action brought on behalf of
purchasers of the Company's securities during the period from March
11, 2016 through January 17, 2019.

The complaint alleges that the defendants violated federal
securities laws by making materially false and misleading
statements and/or omissions concerning data from its Phase 3
clinical trials of sotagliflozin in type 1 diabetes patients and
the prospects of FDA approval of sotagliflozin for the treatment of
type 1 diabetes.

The complaint purports to assert claims for violations of Sections
10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule
10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

The compliant seeks, on behalf of the purported class, an
unspecified amount of monetary damages, interest, fees and expenses
of attorneys and experts, and other relief.

Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, focuses
on the development and commercialization of pharmaceutical
products. Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. was founded in 1995 and is

LIVEFREE EMERGENCY: Boehm Sues Over Unauthorized Calls Under TCPA
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ANDREW BOEHM, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated Plaintiff, v. LIVEFREE EMERGENCY RESPONSE, INC., a
Delaware corporation, INTERNET LISTING SOLUTIONS, LLC, a Florida
limited liability company, T WILSON INVESTMENTS LLC, a Florida
limited liability company, TIMOTHY WILSON, an individual
Defendants, Case No. 8:19-cv-00208 (D. Neb., May 9, 2019) seeks to
stop Defendants' illegal practice of making unauthorized calls that
play prerecorded voice messages to the cellular telephones of
consumers nationwide, and to obtain redress for all persons injured
by their conduct.

The Defendants are various service businesses. As a primary part of
their marketing efforts, Defendants and their agents place
thousands of automated calls employing a prerecorded voice message
to consumers' cell phones nationwide. Unfortunately, Defendants do
not obtain consent prior to placing these calls and, therefore, are
in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA").

The TCPA targets unauthorized calls exactly like the ones alleged
in this case, based on Defendants' use of technological equipment
to spam consumers with its advertising on a grand scale. By placing
the calls at issue, Defendants have violated the privacy and
statutory rights of Plaintiff and the Class, says the complaint.

Plaintiff ANDREW BOEHM is a natural person and is a citizen of the
District of Nebraska.

Defendant ILS, Defendant TWI, and Defendant Wilson sell internet
business listings. Defendant LER sells medical alert equipment,
including the "Guardian Lifewatch".[BN]

LYFT INC: Clapper Sues over Misrepresentation in IPO Documents
--------------------------------------------------------------
A class action complaint has been filed against Lyft, Inc. et al.
for violations of the federal securities laws. The case is
captioned WESLEY CLAPPER, Individually and on Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, Plaintiff, vs. LYFT, INC., LOGAN GREEN, JOHN
ZIMMER, BRIAN ROBERTS, PRASHANT AGGARWAL, BEN HOROWITS, VALERIE

CANACCORD GENUITY LLC., Case No. CGC-19-575453 (Cal. Super., San
Francisco Cty., April 23, 2019).

Plaintiff Wesley Clapper brings this action on behalf of Lyft
common stock pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration
Statement and Prospectus issued in connection with Lyft's March 29,
2019 initial public stock offering (IPO). The company's
Registration Statement describes how its rideshare business
operated, and how its drivers were treated fairly and benefited by
using the app. However, it failed to disclose and misrepresented
adverse facts that existed at the time of the IPO. For months prior
to the IPO, Lyft had been receiving reports of injuries to people
using the electric-assist bikes due to the front brakes clamping
down too sharply, including injuries caused by riders flying over
the handlebars when the front wheel locked up and as a result, Lyft
could not safely operate and would be forced to, at least
temporarily, pull all 3,000 of the electric-assist bikes it had
launched in New York City, San Francisco and Washington D.C. off
the streets. Lyft would not have 4,000 electric-assist bikes on the
streets by June 2019, as it had emphasized during its IPO road show
presentation.

Lyft, Inc. is a San Francisco, California-based company that
provides a peer-to-peer marketplace for on-demand ridesharing in
the United States and Canada and other related transportation
services; including a network of shared bikes and scooters in
various cities. To facilitate its use, Lyft integrates third-party
public transit data into the Lyft app to offer various enterprise
programs, including monthly ride credits for daily commutes,
supplementing public transit by providing rides for the first and
last leg of commuter trips, late-night rides home, and shuttle
replacement rides. [BN]

LYFT INC: Faces Lande Suit over Drop in Share Prices

FINANCIAL PARTNERS LLC, Defendants, Case No. CGC-19-575294 (Cal.
Super., San Francisco Cty., April 15, 2019) alleges violation of
the Securities Act of 1933.

According to the complaint, on March 28, 2019, Lyft conducted an
IPO through which it offered 32.5 million shares to the public at a
price of $72 per share for anticipated total proceeds of over
$2.275 billion.

According to the Registration Statement and Prospectus filed in
connection with the IPO, Lyft estimated that its ridesharing
marketplace "is available to over 95% of the U.S. population, as
well as in select cities in Canada." Lyft also asserted that its
"U.S. ridesharing market share was 39% in December 2018, up from
22% in December 2016."

Lyft's focus on its market share gain and position were key selling
points to IPO investors and reiterated again in a CNBC interview
with Lyft co-founders, Defendants Logan Green and John Zimmer, on
the same day as the Company's IPO.

Unbeknownst to investors, however, the Registration Statement's
representations were materially inaccurate, misleading, and
incomplete because they failed to disclose, inter alia, that: (1)
more than 1,000 of the bicycles in Lyft's rideshare program
suffered from safety issues that would lead to their recall; and
(2) Lyft's claimed ridesharing market position was overstated.
Accordingly, the price of the Company's shares was artificially and
materially inflated at the time of the Offering.

As the true facts emerged in the wake of the Offering, the
Company's shares fell sharply to under $57 on April 15, 2019.

Lyft, Inc. operates a peer-to-peer marketplace for on-demand
ridesharing in the United States and Canada. The company was
formerly known as Zimride, Inc. and changed its name to Lyft, Inc.
in 2013. Lyft, Inc. was incorporated in 2007 and is headquartered
in San Francisco, California. [BN]

MCDERMOTT INT'L: No Lead Plaintiff Yet in Securities Suit
---------------------------------------------------------
McDermott International, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for
the quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the court has not
yet appointed a lead plaintiff in the consolidated Edwards and The
Public Employees Retirement System of Mississippi lawsuits.

On November 15, 2018, a complaint was filed in the United States
District Court for the Southern District of Texas seeking class
action status on behalf of purchasers of McDermott common stock and
alleging damages on their behalf arising from allegedly false and
misleading statements made during the class period from January 24,
2018 to October 30, 2018. The case is captioned: Edwards v.
McDermott International, Inc., et al., No. 4:18-cv-04330.

The defendants in the case are: McDermott; David Dickson, the
company's president and chief executive officer; and Stuart Spence,
the company's chief financial officer.

The plaintiff has alleged that the defendants made material
misrepresentations and omissions about the integration of the CB&I
business, certain CB&I projects and their fair values, and our
business, prospects and operations. The plaintiff asserts claims
under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5
thereunder.

On January 14, 2019, a related action was filed in the United
States District Court for the Southern District of Texas seeking
class action status on behalf of all shareholders of McDermott
common stock as of April 4, 2018 who had the right to vote on the
Combination, captioned: The Public Employees Retirement System of
Mississippi v. McDermott International, Inc., et al., No.
4:19-cv-00135.

The plaintiff has alleged the defendants (which include the
company's chief executive officer and chief financial officer) made
material misrepresentations and omissions in the proxy statement
the company used in connection with the Combination. The plaintiff
asserted claims under Section 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act.


The company filed a motion to consolidate the two actions, and the
court granted that motion on February 22, 2019. The court has not
yet appointed a lead plaintiff for either set of claims.

McDermott said, "We expect to file motions to dismiss all of the
claims. We are not able at this time to determine the likelihood of
loss, if any, arising from these matters and, accordingly, no
amounts have been accrued as of March 31, 2019. We believe the
claims are without merit and we intend to defend against them
vigorously."

McDermott International, Inc. provides engineering, procurement,
construction and installation, and technology solutions to the
energy industry worldwide. It operates through five segments:
North, Central and South America; Europe, Africa, Russia and
Caspian; the Middle East and North Africa; Asia Pacific; and

MCDERMOTT INT'L: Unit Still Defends Cantrell Class Suit
-------------------------------------------------------
McDermott International, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for
the quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the company
continues to defend a class action suit entitled, Cantrell v.
Lutech Resources, Inc.

A former employee of one of the company's subsidiaries commenced a
class action lawsuit under the Fair Labor Standards ACT ("FLSA")
entitled Cantrell v. Lutech Resources, Inc., (S.D. Texas 2017) Case
No. 4:17-CV-2679 on or about September 5, 2017, alleging that he
and his fellow class members were not paid one and one half times
their normal hourly wage rates for hours worked that exceeded 40
hours in a work week.

The company's subsidiary has yet to answer the allegations in the
complaint, as agreed by the parties, in order to allow mediation to
take place. The first mediation session commenced in October 2018
and is ongoing.

McDermott said, "We do not believe a risk of material loss is
probable related to this matter, and, accordingly, our reserves for
this matter were not significant as of March 31, 2019. While it is
possible that a loss may be incurred, we are unable at this time,
to estimate the range of potential loss, if any."

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

MONDELEZ INT'L: Proposed Consent Order Due May 28
-------------------------------------------------
Mondelez International, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 1, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the proposed consent
order reflecting the agreement among the parties in an antitrust
lawsuit must be filed by the next court date on May 28, 2019.

On April 1, 2015, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission
("CFTC") filed a complaint against Kraft Foods Group and Mondelez
Global LLC ("Mondelez Global") in the U.S. District Court (the
"Court") for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division
(the "CFTC action") following its investigation of activities
related to the trading of December 2011 wheat futures contracts
that occurred prior to the spin-off of Kraft Foods Group.

The complaint alleges that Kraft Foods Group and Mondelez Global
(1) manipulated or attempted to manipulate the wheat markets during
the fall of 2011; (2) violated position limit levels for wheat
futures and (3) engaged in non-competitive trades by trading both
sides of exchange-for-physical Chicago Board of Trade wheat
contracts.

The CFTC seeks civil monetary penalties of either triple the
monetary gain for each violation of the Commodity Exchange Act (the
"Act") or $1 million for each violation of Section 6(c)(1), 6(c)(3)
or 9(a)(2) of the Act and $140,000 for each additional violation of
the Act, plus post-judgment interest; an order of permanent
injunction prohibiting Kraft Foods Group and Mondelez Global from
violating specified provisions of the Act; disgorgement of profits;
and costs and fees.

The parties have reached an agreement in principle to resolve the
CFTC action and have been instructed by the Court to submit a
proposed consent order reflecting their agreement prior to the next
court date on May 28, 2019.

Additionally, several class action complaints were filed against
Kraft Foods Group and Mondelez Global in the U.S. District Court
for the Northern District of Illinois by investors in wheat futures
and options on behalf of themselves and others similarly situated.


The complaints make similar allegations as those made in the CFTC
action and seek class action certification; an unspecified amount
for damages, interest and unjust enrichment; costs and fees; and
injunctive, declaratory and other unspecified relief. In June 2015,
these suits were consolidated in the Northern District of Illinois.


The company is contesting the plaintiffs' request for class
certification. "It is not possible to predict the outcome of these
matters; however, based on the company's Separation and
Distribution Agreement with Kraft Foods Group dated as of September
27, 2012, we expect to bear any monetary penalties or other
payments in connection with the CFTC action," the company said.

Although the CFTC action and the class action complaints involve
the same alleged conduct, a resolution or decision with respect to
one of the matters may not be dispositive as to the outcome of the
other matter.

Mondelez International, Inc., through its subsidiaries,
manufactures and markets snack food and beverage products
worldwide. The company was formerly known as Kraft Foods Inc. and
changed its name to Mondelez International, Inc. in October 2012.
Mondelez International, Inc. was founded in 2000 and is based in
Deerfield, Illinois.

and countless former Houston football players suffered brain and
other neurocognitive injuries from playing NCAA football. As such,
Plaintiffs bring this Class Action Complaint in order to vindicate
those players' rights and hold the NCAA accountable.

Plaintiffs are natural persons and citizens of the State of Texas.

program at Hampton.[BN]

------------------------------------------------------------
Brad Kubik, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. National Collegiate Athletic Association,
Defendant, Case No. 1:19-cv-01884-TWP-MPB (S.D. Ind., May 9, 2019)
seeks to obtain redress for injuries sustained as a result of
Defendant's reckless disregard for the health and safety of
generations of Missouri State University ("MSU") student-athletes.

Despite knowing for decades of a vast body of scientific research
describing the danger of traumatic brain injuries ("TBIs") like
those Plaintiffs experienced, Defendant failed to implement
adequate procedures to protect Plaintiffs and other MSU football
players from the long-term dangers associated with them, says the
complaint.

As a direct result of Defendant's acts and omissions, Plaintiffs
and countless former MSU football players suffered brain and other
neurocognitive injuries from playing NCAA football. As such,
Plaintiffs bring this Class Action Complaint in order to vindicate
those players' rights and hold the NCAA accountable.

Plaintiff Brad Kubik is a natural person and a citizen of the State
of Iowa.

The company is a defendant in a civil class action lawsuit filed by
the Federal Prosecutor's Office (Ministerio Publico Federal)
seeking recovery for alleged collective moral damages caused by
TNL's alleged non-compliance with the Customer Service (Serviço de
Atendimento ao Consumidor - SAC) regulations established by the
Ministry of Justice (Ministerio da Justica).

TNL presented its defense and asked for a change of venue to
federal court in Rio de Janeiro, where the company is
headquartered. Other defendants have been named and await service
of process. The amount involved in this action is R$300 million.

Oi S.A. said, "As a result of a corporate reorganization in 2012,
we have succeeded to TNL's position as a defendant in this action.
As of December 31, 2018, we deemed the risk of loss as possible
with respect to these lawsuits and had not made any provisions with
respect to this action since it was awaiting the court's initial
decision.

service providers in Brazil with approximately 57.1 million revenue
generating units, or RGUs, as of December 31, 2018. The company

The company is a defendant in 44 civil class actions filed by the

centers. The lower courts have rendered decisions in all of these
proceedings, some of which have been unfavorable to the company.

All of these proceedings are currently under appeal.

Oi S.A. said, "As of December 31, 2018, we had recorded provisions
in the amount of R$10.2 million for those claims in respect of
which we deemed the risk of loss as probable."

interest, reasonable attorneys' fees and costs under New York
Minimum Wage Act, and the New York Wage Payment Act, (collectively,
the "NYLL").

Plaintiffs and other similarly situated employees were hired by
Defendant to assist its clients with their payroll and benefits
services. However, Defendant failed to properly compensate
Plaintiffs and others similarly situated for all hours worked. The
Defendant completed this illegal act by paying Plaintiffs and
others similarly situated under the guise of a salary. However,
Plaintiffs' duties did not exempt them from the overtime
requirements mandated by the FLSA and NYLL. Defendant willfully
misclassified Plaintiffs and others similarly situated as salaried
employees for the purpose of not paying them overtime, says the
complaint.

Plaintiffs were employed by Defendant as Implementation
Coordinators and/or Implementation Project Managers.

Defendant is a human resources services company headquartered in
Rochester, New York and operates in multiple states and maintains
over 100 offices across the country.[BN]

PIER 1: Oral Arguments in Town of Davie Police Suit on June 12
--------------------------------------------------------------
Pier 1 Imports, Inc. said in its Form 10-K report filed with the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for the
fiscal year ended March 2, 2019, that the court has scheduled oral
arguments on June 12, 2019, in the class action suit entitled, Town
of Davie Police Pension Plan, Plaintiff, v. Pier 1 Imports, Inc.,
Alexander W. Smith and Charles H. Turner, Defendants.

Putative class action complaints were filed in the United States
District Court for the Northern District of Texas Dallas Division
against Pier 1 Imports, Inc., Alexander W. Smith and Charles H.
Turner in August and October 2015 alleging violations under the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

The lawsuits, which have been consolidated into a single action
captioned Town of Davie Police Pension Plan, Plaintiff, v. Pier 1
Imports, Inc., Alexander W. Smith and Charles H. Turner,
Defendants, were filed on behalf of a purported putative class of
investors who purchased or otherwise acquired stock of Pier 1
Imports, Inc. between April 10, 2014 and December 17, 2015.

The plaintiffs seek to recover damages purportedly caused by the
Defendants' alleged violations of the federal securities laws and
to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. The
complaint seeks certification as a class action, unspecified
compensatory damages plus interest and attorneys' fees.

On August 10, 2017, the court granted the Company's motion to
dismiss the complaint, while providing the plaintiffs an
opportunity to replead their complaint. An amended complaint was
filed with the court on September 25, 2017. On June 25, 2018, the
court granted the Company's motion to dismiss the amended
complaint, with prejudice.

The plaintiffs subsequently filed a notice of appeal and a related
appellate brief and the Company filed its reply brief in January
2019. The court has scheduled oral arguments on June 12, 2019.

Pier 1 said, "Although the ultimate outcome of litigation cannot be
predicted with certainty, the Company believes that this lawsuit is
without merit and intends to defend against it vigorously."

Pier 1 Imports, Inc. engages in the retail sale of decorative
accessories, furniture, candles, housewares, gifts, and seasonal
products. The company was founded in 1962 and is headquartered in
Fort Worth, Texas.


PROFESSIONAL CONSULTING: Keivan Suit Asserts TCPA Violation
-----------------------------------------------------------
KEIVAN SARRAF, DDS, INC., individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. PROFESSIONAL CONSULTING SERVICES,
INC. d/b/a PCS CONSULTANTS, INC. and RAMIRO CORDOVA, Defendants,
Case No. 2:19-cv-04049 (C.D. Cal., May 9, 2019) is a class action
under Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure against
Defendants for their violations of the Telephone Consumer
Protection Act ("TCPA"), and the regulations promulgated
thereunder.

On January 21, 2019, Defendants, or someone acting on their behalf,
used a telephone facsimile machine, computer, or other device to
send to Plaintiff's telephone facsimile machine an unsolicited
advertisement. Plaintiff received the two-page Fax through
Plaintiff's facsimile machine.

The Fax to Plaintiff and the similar facsimile advertisements sent
by Defendants, lacked a proper notice on its first page informing
the recipient of the ability and means to avoid future unsolicited
advertisements and thereby contained numerous violations of the
TCPA. The Defendants violated the TCPA by transmitting the Fax to
Plaintiff and to the Class members without obtaining their prior
express invitation or permission and by not displaying the proper
opt-out notice, says the complaint.

Plaintiff Keivan Sarraf, DDS, Inc., is a citizen of the State of
California and has its principal place of business in Beverly
Hills, California.

Defendant Professional Consulting Services, Inc., is a California
corporation.[BN]

QUANTENNA COMMUNICATIONS: Clarke Files Suit Over Sale to ON
-----------------------------------------------------------
GERALD CLARKE, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. QUANTENNA COMMUNICATIONS, INC., SAM
HEIDARI, GLENDA DORCHAK, NED HOOPER, HAROLD HUGHES, JACK LAZAR,
JOHN SCULL, and MARK A. STEVENS, Defendants, Case No.
3:19-cv-02508-WHA (N.D. Cal., May 9, 2019) is a stockholder class
action on behalf of Plaintiff and all other public stockholders of
Quantenna Communications, Inc., against Quantenna and the Company's
Board of Directors for violations of the Securities and Exchange
Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act") and breaches of fiduciary duty as
a result of Defendants' efforts to sell the Company to ON
Semiconductor ("Parent"), and Raptor Operations Sub, Inc. ("Merger
Sub," collectively with Parent, "ON Semiconductor") as a result of
an unfair process for an unfair price, and to enjoin an upcoming
stockholder vote on a proposed all cash transaction valued at
approximately $936 million (the "Proposed Transaction").

The terms of the Proposed Transaction were memorialized in a March
27, 2018, filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission
("SEC") on Form 8-K attaching the definitive Agreement and Plan of
Merger (the "Merger Agreement"). Under the terms of the Merger
Agreement, Quantenna will become an indirect wholly-owned
subsidiary of ON Semiconductor, and Quantenna stockholders will
receive $24.50 in cash for each share of Quantenna common stock
they own. As a result of the Proposed Transaction, Plaintiff and
other Quantenna stockholders will be frozen out of any future
ownership interest in the Corporation. Thereafter, on May 3, 2019,
Quantenna filed a Preliminary Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A (the
"Preliminary Proxy") with the SEC in support of the Proposed
Transaction.

According to the complaint, in approving the Proposed Transaction,
the Individual Defendants have breached their fiduciary duties of
loyalty, good faith, due care and disclosure by, inter alia, (i)
agreeing to sell Quantenna without first taking steps to ensure
that Plaintiff and Class members (defined below) would obtain
adequate, fair and maximum consideration under the circumstances;
and (ii) engineering the Proposed Transaction to benefit themselves
and/or ON Semiconductor without regard for Quantenna public
stockholders.

In violation of the Exchange Act and in further violation of their
fiduciary duties, Defendants caused to be filed the materially
deficient Preliminary Proxy on May 3, 2019 with SEC in an effort to
solicit stockholders to vote their Quantenna shares in favor of the
Proposed Transaction. The Preliminary Proxy is materially
deficient, deprives Quantenna stockholders of the information they
need to make an intelligent, informed and rational decision of
whether to vote their shares in favor of the Proposed Transaction,
and is thus in breach of the Defendants fiduciary duties, says the
complaint.

Accordingly, this action seeks to enjoin the Proposed Transaction
and compel the Individual Defendants to properly exercise their
fiduciary duties to Quantenna stockholders.

Plaintiff is a citizen of Illinois and, at all times relevant
hereto, has been a Quantenna stockholder.

Quantenna designs, develops, and markets wireless communication
solutions enabling wireless local area networking in the
Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the
Americas.[BN]

SEABOARD CORP: Continues to Defend Pork Buyers' Lawsuit
-------------------------------------------------------
Seaboard Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on April 30, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended March 30, 2019, that the company continues
to defend against antitrust litigation commenced by purchasers of
pork products.

On June 28, 2018, Wanda Duryea and 11 other indirect purchasers of
pork products, acting on behalf of themselves and a putative class
of indirect purchasers of pork products, filed a class action
complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota
against several pork processors, including Seaboard Foods and Agri
Stats, Inc., a company described in the complaint as a data sharing
service.

Subsequent to the filing of this initial complaint, additional
class action complaints making similar claims on behalf of putative
classes of direct and indirect purchasers were filed in the U.S.
District Court for the District of Minnesota.

The complaints allege, among other things, that beginning in
January 2009, the defendants conspired and combined to fix, raise,
maintain, and stabilize the price of pork products in violation of
U.S. antitrust laws by coordinating their output and limiting
production, allegedly facilitated by the exchange of non-public
information about prices, capacity, sales volume and demand through
Agri Stats, Inc.

The complaints on behalf of the putative classes of indirect
purchasers also include causes of action under various state laws,
including state antitrust laws, unfair competition laws, consumer
protection statutes, and state common law claims for unjust
enrichment.

The complaints also allege that the defendants concealed this
conduct from the plaintiffs and the members of the putative
classes. The relief sought in the respective complaints includes
treble damages, injunctive relief, pre- and post-judgment interest,
costs, and attorneys' fees on behalf of the putative classes.

The complaints were amended and consolidated, and the cases are now
organized into three consolidated putative class actions brought on
behalf of (a) direct purchasers, (b) consumer indirect purchasers,
and (c) commercial and institutional indirect purchasers.  

The amended complaints named Seaboard Corporation as an additional
defendant.

Seaboard intends to defend these cases vigorously.

Seaboard said, "It is impossible at this stage either to determine
the probability of a favorable or unfavorable outcome resulting
from these suits, or to estimate the amount of potential loss, if
any, resulting from the suits."

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

Seaboard Corporation operates as a diverse agribusiness and
transportation company worldwide. The company's Pork division
produces and sells fresh pork products, such as loins, tenderloins,
and ribs, as well as frozen pork products to further processors,
foodservice operators, grocery stores, distributors, and retail
outlets. Seaboard Corporation was founded in 1918 and is
headquartered in Merriam, Kansas.


SHE IS ORGANIC: Vasquez-Cossio Sues Over Automatic Service Renewal
------------------------------------------------------------------
INEZ VASQUEZ-COSSIO, individually and on behalf of all other
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. SHE IS ORGANIC, LLC, a California
limited liability company; and DOES 1 - 10, inclusive, Defendants,
Case No. 30-2019-01068651-CU-MT-CXC (Cal. Super. Ct., Orange Cty.,
May 9, 2019) is a class action on behalf of Plaintiff and a class
of others similarly situated consisting of all persons in
California who, within the applicable statute of limitations period
up to and including the date of judgment in this action, purchased
subscriptions for products, from Defendant.

The Plaintiffs seek damages, restitution, injunctive and/or other
equitable relief, and reasonable attorneys' fees and costs arising
under California Business and Professions Code.

Defendant operates a website which markets organic tampons and
related products. Plaintiff purchased a subscription plan from
Defendant in California during the Class Period.

According to the complaint, the Defendant made automatic renewal or
continuous service offers to consumers in California and (a) at the
time of making the automatic renewal or continuous service offers,
failed to present the automatic renewal offer terms or continuous
service offer terms, in a clear and conspicuous manner and in
visual proximity to the request for consent to the offer before the
subscription or purchasing agreement was fulfilled in violation of
Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code; (b) charged Plaintiff's and Class Members'
credit or debit cards, or third-party account without first
obtaining Plaintiff's and Class Members' affirmative consent to the
agreement containing the automatic renewal offer terms or
continuous service offer terms in violation of Cal. Bus. & Prof.
Code; and (c) failed to provide an acknowledgment that includes the
automatic renewal or continuous service offer terms, cancellation
policy, and information regarding how to cancel in a manner that is
capable of being retained by the consumer in violation of Cal. Bus.
& Prof. Code.[BN]

SOUTHWEST AIRLINES: Awaits Court's Approval of Settlement
---------------------------------------------------------
Southwest Airlines Co. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on April 30, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the Court overseeing
the airline fees-related class suit has indicated that it will
issue a written decision on the motion to approve the settlement.

On July 1, 2015, a complaint was filed in the United States
District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of
putative classes of consumers alleging collusion among the Company,
American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines to limit
capacity and maintain higher fares in violation of Section 1 of the
Sherman Act.

Since then, a number of similar class action complaints were filed
in the United States District Courts for the Central District of
California, the Northern District of California, the District of
Columbia, the Middle District of Florida, the Southern District of
Florida, the Northern District of Georgia, the Northern District of
Illinois, the Southern District of Indiana, the Eastern District of
Louisiana, the District of Minnesota, the District of New Jersey,
the Eastern District of New York, the Southern District of New
York, the Middle District of North Carolina, the District of
Oklahoma, the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the Northern
District of Texas, the District of Vermont, and the Eastern
District of Wisconsin.

On October 13, 2015, the Judicial Panel on Multi-District
Litigation centralized the cases to the United States District
Court in the District of Columbia. On March 25, 2016, the
plaintiffs filed a Consolidated Amended Complaint in the
consolidated cases alleging that the defendants conspired to
restrict capacity from 2009 to present.

The plaintiffs seek to bring their claims on behalf of a class of
persons who purchased tickets for domestic airline travel on the
defendants' airlines from July 1, 2011 to present. They seek treble
damages, injunctive relief, and attorneys' fees and expenses.

On May 11, 2016, the defendants moved to dismiss the Consolidated
Amended Complaint, and on October 28, 2016, the Court denied this
motion.

On December 20, 2017, the Company reached an agreement to settle
these cases with a proposed class of all persons who purchased
domestic airline transportation services from July 1, 2011, to the
date of the settlement.

The Company agreed to pay $15 million and to provide certain
cooperation with the plaintiffs as set forth in the settlement
agreement. The Court granted preliminary approval of the settlement
on January 3, 2018.

The plaintiffs provided notice to the settlement class pursuant to
a notice program approved by the Court, and the deadline for class
members to opt out or object was January 4, 2019.

The fairness hearing for the settlement was held on March 22, 2019,
and the Court indicated that it will issue a written decision on
the motion to approve the settlement. The Company denies all
allegations of wrongdoing.

Southwest Airlines Co. operates a passenger airline that provides
scheduled air transportation services in the United States and
near-international markets. Southwest Airlines Co. was founded in
1967 and is based in Dallas, Texas.


SPARKS NETWORKS: Benabu Class Action over Auto-Renewal Concluded
----------------------------------------------------------------
Spark Networks SE said in its Form 20-F report filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for the
fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, that the case entitled,
Stephanie J. Benabu vs. Videotron Ltee and Affinitas GmbH, et al.,
has been concluded.

On November 2, 2017, Spark Networks SE completed the Affinitas /
Spark Merger pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated May
2, 2017, entered into by Spark Networks SE, Affinitas, Spark and
Chardonnay Merger Sub, Inc.

On August 1, 2016, Affinitas was served with a copy of an
application to bring a class action lawsuit and to appoint the
status of representative plaintiff filed with the Superior Court of
the District of Montreal.

The potential suit relates to the practice of automatically
renewing the services provided to Canadian users of Affinitas'
products at standard pricing after a discounted trial period
without active consent by the consumer. Affinitas ceased engaging
in these practices and entered into a settlement agreement with the
plaintiffs.

The settlement agreement was ratified by the Superior Court of the
District of Montreal on May 8, 2018. The closing judgment was
delivered by the Superior Court on November 2, 2018, declaring that
Affinitas had complied with its obligations under the settlement
agreement.

Spark Networks SE operates online dating sites and mobile
applications. It focuses on catering professionals and highly
educated singles with serious relationship intentions in North

STANDARD MARKET: Abusalem Sues Over Biometric Data Retention
------------------------------------------------------------
LEEN ABUSALEM, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff v. THE STANDARD MARKET, LLC Defendant, Case No.
2019L000517 (18th Judicial Circuit Ct., Dupage Cty., Ill., May 9,
2019) seeks to put a stop to Defendant's unlawful collection, use,
and storage of Plaintiff's and the putative Class members'
sensitive biometric data.

To protect its citizens, Illinois enacted the Biometric Information
Privacy Act, ("BIPA"), specifically to regulate companies that
collect and store Illinois citizens' biometrics, such as
fingerprints.

Despite this law, Standard Market disregards its employees'
statutorily protected privacy rights and unlawfully collects,
stores, and uses their biometric data in violation of the BIPA,
asserts the complaint. Specifically, Standard Market has violated
(and continues to violate) the BIPA because it did not: properly
inform Plaintiff and the Class members in writing of the specific
purpose and length of time for which their fingerprints were being
collected, stored, and used, as required by the BIPA; provide a
publicly available retention schedule and guidelines for
permanently destroying Plaintiff and the Class's fingerprints, as
required by the BIPA; nor receive a written release from Plaintiff
or the members of the Class to collect, capture, or otherwise
obtain fingerprints, as required by the BIPA, says the complaint.

Plaintiff is a natural person and a citizen of the State of
Illinois.

Standard Market currently, or in the past 5 years, has operated in
Naperville, Illinois and Westmont, Illinois and it operates
Bakersfield Wood Fired Grill, Standard Tacos & Margarita, The
Standard Grill, and grocery stores.[BN]

TD AMERITRADE: Briefing on Appeal in Ford Suit Underway
-------------------------------------------------------
TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29,
2019, for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that briefing
on the appeal related to the case, Roderick Ford (replacing Gerald
Klein) v. TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation, et al., Case No.
8:14CV396, is underway.

In 2014, five putative class action complaints were filed regarding
TD Ameritrade, Inc.'s routing of client orders and one putative
class action was filed regarding Scottrade, Inc.'s routing of
client orders. Five of the six cases were dismissed and the United
States Court of Appeals, 8th Circuit, affirmed the dismissals in
those cases that were appealed.

The one remaining case is Roderick Ford (replacing Gerald Klein) v.
TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation, et al., Case No. 8:14CV396 (U.S.
District Court, District of Nebraska).

In the remaining case, plaintiff alleges that, when routing client
orders to various market centers, defendants did not seek best
execution, and instead routed clients' orders to market venues that
paid TD Ameritrade, Inc. the most money for order flow. Plaintiff
alleges that defendants made misrepresentations and omissions
regarding the Company's order routing practices.

The complaint asserts claims of violations of Section 10(b) and 20
of the Exchange Act and SEC Rule 10b-5. The complaint seeks
damages, injunctive relief, and other relief. Plaintiff filed a
motion for class certification, which defendants opposed.

On July 12, 2018, the Magistrate Judge issued findings and a
recommendation that plaintiff's motion for class certification be
denied. Plaintiff filed objections to the Magistrate Judge's
findings and recommendation, which defendants opposed.

On September 14, 2018, the District Judge sustained plaintiff's
objections, rejected the Magistrate Judge's recommendation and
granted plaintiff's motion for class certification. On September
28, 2018, defendants filed a petition requesting that the U.S.
Court of Appeals, 8th Circuit, grant an immediate appeal of the
District Court's class certification decision. The U.S. Court of
Appeals, 8th Circuit, granted defendants' petition on December 18,
2018. Briefing on the appeal is underway.

The Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association and the
U.S. Chamber of Commerce have filed amicus curiae briefs in support
of the Company's appeal.

The Company intends to vigorously defend against this lawsuit and
is unable to predict the outcome or the timing of the ultimate
resolution of the lawsuit, or the potential loss, if any, that may
result.

TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation provides securities brokerage and
related technology-based financial services to retail investors and
traders, and independent registered investment advisors (RIAs) in

TD AMERITRADE: Judge Recommends Preliminary Approval of Settlement
------------------------------------------------------------------
TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29,
2019, for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the
Magistrate Judge in the case, Ciuffitelli et al. v. Deloitte &
Touche LLP, EisnerAmper LLP, Sidley Austin LLP, Tonkon Torp LLP, TD
Ameritrade, Inc., and Integrity Bank & Trust case, has issued a
recommendation that the District Judge grant the plaintiffs' motion
for preliminary approval of the Tonkon Torp settlement.

An amended putative class action complaint was filed in the U.S.
District Court for the District of Oregon in Lawrence Ciuffitelli
et al. v. Deloitte & Touche LLP, EisnerAmper LLP, Sidley Austin
LLP, Tonkon Torp LLP, TD Ameritrade, Inc., and Integrity Bank &
Trust, Case No. 3:16CV580, on May 19, 2016.

A second amended putative class action complaint was filed on
September 8, 2017, in which Duff & Phelps was added as a defendant.


The putative class includes all persons who purchased securities of
Aequitas Commercial Finance, LLC and its affiliates on or after
June 9, 2010.

Other groups of plaintiffs have filed non-class action lawsuits in
Oregon Circuit Court, Multnomah County, against these and other
defendants: Walter Wurster, et al. v. Deloitte & Touche et al.,
Case No. 16CV25920 (filed Aug. 11, 2016), Kenneth Pommier, et al.
v. Deloitte & Touche et al., Case No. 16CV36439 (filed Nov. 3,
2016), Charles Ramsdell, et al. v. Deloitte & Touche et al., Case
No. 16CV40659 (filed Dec. 2, 2016), Charles Layton, et al. v.
Deloitte & Touche et al., Case No. 17CV42915 (filed October 2,
2017) and John Cavanagh, et al. v. Deloitte & Touche et al., Case
No. 18CV09052 (filed March 7, 2018). FINRA arbitrations have also
been filed against TD Ameritrade, Inc.

The claims in these actions include allegations that the sales of
Aequitas securities were unlawful, the defendants participated and
materially aided in such sales in violation of the Oregon
securities laws, and material misstatements and omissions were
made. While the factual allegations differ in various respects
among the cases, plaintiffs' allegations include assertions that:
TD Ameritrade, Inc. customers purchased more than $140 million of
Aequitas securities; TD Ameritrade, Inc. served as custodian for
Aequitas securities; recommended and referred investors to
financial advisors as part of its advisor referral program for the
purpose of purchasing Aequitas securities; participated in
marketing the securities; recommended the securities; provided
assurances to investors about the safety of the securities; and
developed a market for the securities.

In the Ciuffitelli putative class action, plaintiffs allege that
more than 1,500 investors were owed more than $600 million on the
Aequitas securities they purchased. On August 1, 2018, the
Magistrate Judge in that case issued findings and a recommendation
that defendants' motions to dismiss the pending complaint be denied
with limited exceptions not applicable to the Company.

TD Ameritrade, Inc. and other defendants filed objections to the
Magistrate Judge's findings and recommendation, which plaintiffs
opposed. On September 24, 2018, the District Judge issued an
opinion and order adopting the Magistrate Judge's findings and
recommendation. Discovery is ongoing.

In the non-class action lawsuits, approximately 200 named
plaintiffs collectively allege a total of approximately $150
million in losses plus other damages. In the Wurster and Pommier
cases, the Court, on TD Ameritrade Inc.'s motion, dismissed the
claims by those plaintiffs who were TD Ameritrade, Inc. customers,
in favor of arbitration. Twenty-nine of those plaintiffs filed
claims in a FINRA arbitration on March 13, 2019. Discovery is
ongoing.

The Court in the Wurster and Pommier cases denied TD Ameritrade's
motion to dismiss the claims by the plaintiffs who were not TD
Ameritrade customers. Plaintiffs in the Ramsdell case have filed a
second amended complaint in which TD Ameritrade, Inc. is not named
as a defendant. On September 24, 2018, plaintiffs in the Cavanagh
case dismissed their claims against TD Ameritrade, Inc.

On July 17, 2018, plaintiffs in the Ciuffitelli case filed a motion
for preliminary approval of an $18.5 million settlement with the
defendant Tonkon Torp law firm of the claims against it in all the
pending cases.

On March 19, 2019, the Magistrate Judge in the Ciuffitelli case
issued findings and a recommendation that the District Judge grant
plaintiffs' motion for preliminary approval of the Tonkon Torp
settlement.

The Company intends to vigorously defend against this litigation.
The Company is unable to predict the outcome or the timing of the
ultimate resolution of this litigation, or the potential losses, if
any, that may result.

TENET HEALTHCARE: Class Cert. Bid Ruling in Maderazo Under Appeal
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tenet Healthcare Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for
the quarterly period ended March 31, 2019, that the plaintiffs in
the case, Maderazo, et al. v. VHS San Antonio Partners, L.P. d/b/a
Baptist Health Systems, et al., have filed a petition seeking
further appellate court review of a decision denying their motion
for class certification.

In Maderazo, et al. v. VHS San Antonio Partners, L.P. d/b/a Baptist
Health Systems, et al., filed in June 2006 in the U.S. District
Court for the Western District of Texas, a purported class of
registered nurses employed by three unaffiliated San Antonio-area
hospital systems alleged those hospital systems, including the
company's Baptist Health System, and other unidentified San Antonio
regional hospitals violated Section Section 1 of the federal
Sherman Act by conspiring to depress nurses' compensation and
exchanging compensation-related information among themselves in a
manner that reduced competition and suppressed the wages paid to
such nurses.

The suit sought unspecified damages (subject to trebling under
federal law), interest, costs and attorneys' fees.

On January 23, 2019, the district court issued an opinion denying
the plaintiffs' motion for class certification.

The plaintiffs' subsequent appeal of the district court's decision
to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit was denied on
March 26, 2019. On April 9, 2019, the plaintiffs filed a petition
seeking the appellate court's further review of the district
court's ruling.

Tenet Healthcare said, "If necessary, we will continue to
vigorously defend ourselves against the plaintiffs’
allegations."

Tenet Healthcare Corporation operates as a diversified healthcare
services company. The company operates in three segments: Hospital
Operations and Other, Ambulatory Care, and Conifer. Tenet
Healthcare Corporation was founded in 1967 and is headquartered in
Dallas, Texas.


TESLA INC: Appeal Filed in Suit over Model 3 Vehicles
-----------------------------------------------------
Tesla Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for the quarterly period
ended March 31, 2019, that the plaintiffs in the securities
litigation relating to the production of Model 3 Vehicles filed a
notice of appeal.

On October 10, 2017, a purported stockholder class action was filed
in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California
against Tesla, two of its current officers, and a former officer.

The complaint alleges violations of federal securities laws and
seeks unspecified compensatory damages and other relief on behalf
of a purported class of purchasers of Tesla securities from May 4,
2016 to October 6, 2017.

The lawsuit claims that Tesla supposedly made materially false and
misleading statements regarding the Company's preparedness to
produce Model 3 vehicles.

Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint on March 23, 2018, and
defendants filed a motion to dismiss on May 25, 2018. The court
granted defendants' motion to dismiss with leave to amend.

Plaintiffs filed their amended complaint on September 28, 2018, and
defendants filed a motion to dismiss the amended complaint on
February 15, 2019. The hearing on the motion to dismiss was held on
March 22, 2019, and on March 25, 2019, the Court ruled in favor of
defendants and dismissed the complaint with prejudice. On April 8,
2019, plaintiffs filed a notice of appeal.

The company said, "We continue to believe that the claims are
without merit and intend to defend against this lawsuit vigorously.
We are unable to estimate the possible loss or range of loss, if
any, associated with this lawsuit."

On October 26, 2018, in a similar action, a purported stockholder
class action was filed in the Superior Court of California in Santa
Clara County against Tesla, Elon Musk and seven initial purchasers
in an offering of debt securities by Tesla in August 2017. The
complaint alleges misrepresentations made by Tesla regarding the
number of Model 3 vehicles Tesla expected to produce by the end of
2017 in connection with such offering, and seeks unspecified
compensatory damages and other relief on behalf of a purported
class of purchasers of Tesla securities in such offering. Tesla
thereafter removed the case to federal court.  

On January 22, 2019, plaintiff abandoned its effort to proceed in
state court, instead filing an amended complaint against Tesla,
Elon Musk and seven initial purchasers in the debt offering before
the same judge in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District
of California who is hearing the above-referenced earlier filed
federal court case. On February 5, 2019, the Court stayed this new
case pending a ruling on the motion to dismiss the complaint in the
above earlier filed case. Now that the above-referenced earlier
filed federal court case has been dismissed, the parties are
negotiating a briefing schedule for the motion to dismiss that
defendants will be filing in this case.  

Tesla said, "We believe that the claims are without merit and
intend to defend against this lawsuit vigorously. We are unable to
estimate the possible loss or range of loss, if any, associated
with this lawsuit."

Tesla Inc. designs, manufactures, and sells high-performance
electric vehicles and electric vehicle powertrain components. The
Company owns its sales and service network and sells electric
powertrain components to other automobile manufacturers. Tesla
serves customers worldwide. The company is based in Palo Alto,
California.


TESLA INC: Class Suit over Musk's Tweet Shelved
-----------------------------------------------
Tesla Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for the quarterly period
ended March 31, 2019, that the consolidated purported stockholder
class action has been stayed while the issue of selection of lead
counsel is briefed and argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals for
the Ninth Circuit.

Between August 10, 2018 and September 6, 2018, nine purported
stockholder class actions were filed against Tesla and Elon Musk in
connection with Elon Musk's August 7, 2018 Twitter post that he was
considering taking Tesla private.

All of the suits are now pending in the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of California. Although the complaints vary in
certain respects, they each purport to assert claims for violations
of federal securities laws related to Mr. Musk's statement and seek
unspecified compensatory damages and other relief on behalf of a
purported class of purchasers of Tesla's securities.

Plaintiffs filed their consolidated complaint on January 16, 2019
and added as defendants the members of Tesla’s board of
directors. The now-consolidated purported stockholder class action
is stayed while the issue of selection of lead counsel is briefed
and argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.


Tesla said, "We believe that the claims have no merit and intend to
defend against them vigorously. We are unable to estimate the
potential loss, or range of loss, associated with these claims."

XUNLEI LIMITED: Bid to Dismiss Consolidated Securities Suit Pending
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Xunlei Limited said in its Form 20-F report filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission on April 29, 2019, for the
fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, that a motion to dismiss the
consolidated class action suit entitled, In re Xunlei Limited
Securities Litigation, No. 18-cv-467 (PAC), is pending.

Two putative shareholder class action lawsuits have been filed in
the United States District Court for the Southern District of New
York against the company company and certain current and former
officers and directors of its company: Dookeran v. Xunlei Limited,
et al. (filed on January 18, 2018, Case No. 18-cv-467 (S.D.N.Y.)),
and Peng Li v. Xunlei Limited, et al. (filed on January 24, 2018,
Case No. 18-cv-646 (S.D.N.Y.)).

Purporting to sue on behalf of all investors who purchased or
acquired Xunlei stock from October 10, 2017 to January 11, 2018,
plaintiffs allege that certain statements regarding OneCoin in the
company's press releases and on a quarterly investor call were
false and misleading because, among other things, they failed to
disclose that OneCoin was a disguised "initial coin offering" and
"initial miner offering" and constituted "unlawful financial
activity."

Plaintiffs seek to recover under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the
U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 thereunder. On
April 12, 2018, the court consolidated the actions under the
caption In re Xunlei Limited Securities Litigation, No. 18-cv-467
(PAC) and appointed lead plaintiffs who filed a consolidated
amended compliant on June 4, 2018.

Xunlei said, "We filed a motion to dismiss the amended compliant on
August 3, 2018. As of October 31, 2018, the motion was fully
briefed."

Xunlei Limited, a cloud-based acceleration technology company,
operates an Internet platform for digital media content in the
People's Republic of China. Xunlei Limited was founded in 2003 and
is based in Shenzhen, the People's Republic of China.


[*] Globalstar Expects to Get $3.7MM by 2020 from Settlement
------------------------------------------------------------
Globalstar, Inc. recorded US$3.7 million at March 31, 2019, for the
second and final installment it expects to receive in January 2020
related to a 2018 settlement of a business economic loss claim,
according to the Company's Form 10-Q filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarterly period ended
March 31, 2019.

In May 2018, the Company concluded the settlement of a business
economic loss claim in which it was an absent member in a tort
class action lawsuit.  The Company is due proceeds of US$7.4
million, net of legal fees, related to this settlement.  The
