3M COMPANY: Correa Sues over Defective Combat Arms Earplugs
-----------------------------------------------------------
The case, ANGEL A. CARDONA CORREA, the Plaintiff, vs. 3M COMPANY,
the Defendant, Case No. 3:19-cv-02102-MCR-HTC (N.D. Fla., July 17,
2019), seeks to hold 3M liable for hearing loss or damage Plaintiff
allegedly suffered while serving variously in the U.S. military,
including during foreign conflicts. The Plaintiff contends that
Combat Arms TM Earplugs, Version 2 ("CAEv2") manufactured and sold
by Aearo were defectively designed and failed to provide adequate
hearing protection. 3M denies these allegations.

CAEv2, designed by Aearo in close collaboration with the U.S.
military, represented a revolutionary breakthrough in hearing
protection for service members. CAEv2 helped servicemembers better
maintain situational awareness (e.g., to hear nearby voice
commands) while also maintaining some protection from gunfire and
other higher decibel sounds. CAEv2 met the U.S. military's
specifications and helped the military provide hearing protection
to service members.

Despite knowing of the dangerous defects in its earplugs, Defendant
sold the Dual-ended Combat ArmsTM earplugs to the branches of the
U.S. military for more than a decade without providing the U.S.
military and/or Plaintiff with any warning of said defects, causing
Plaintiff and other service members similar permanent injuries,
such as hearing loss.[BN]

400 WEST: Medina Seeks Minimum & OT Wages for Restaurant Staff
--------------------------------------------------------------
DONATO ROSALES MEDINA, individually and on behalf of others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, vs. 400 WEST 23RD STREET
RESTAURANT CORP. (D/B/A THE RAIL LINE DINER), TEDDY NICTAS , and
ENRIQUE DOE, the Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-06681 (S.D.N.Y., July
17, 2019), seeks to recover unpaid minimum and overtime wages
pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, and the New York
Labor Law, including applicable liquidated damages, interest,
attorneys' fees and costs.

The Plaintiff Rosales worked for Defendants in excess of 40 hours
per week, without appropriate minimum wage and overtime
compensation for the hours that he worked.

Rather, the Defendants failed to pay Rosales appropriately for any
hours worked, either at the straight rate of pay or for any
additional overtime premium. Furthermore, Defendants repeatedly
failed to pay Plaintiff Rosales wages on a timely basis.

Mr. Rosales was employed as a dishwasher and a delivery worker at
the Defendants' restaurant. He was ostensibly employed as a
delivery worker. However, he was required to spend a considerable
part of his work day performing non-tipped duties, including but
not limited to dishwashing, taking out the garbage, peeling
potatoes, and cleaning the counter, basement, boiler, and the
dessert refrigerator (non-tipped duties).

The Defendants own, operate, or control a diner, located at 400
West 23rd St, New York, NY 10001 under the name "The Rail Line
Diner".[BN]

ALEXANDER SCHAUT, on behalf of himself and all others similarly

PETRUSS MEDIA GROUP, LLC, the Defendants, Case No.
9:19-cv-81030-XXXX (S.D. Fla., July 17, 2019), seeks to collect
unpaid wages and benefits for 60 calendar days pursuant to the
Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988.

According to the complaint, the Defendants are liable under the
WARN Act for the failure to provide the Plaintiff and the other
similarly situated former employees at least 60 days' advance

On July 11, 2017, approximately 100 other similarly situated
employees who reported to the Defendant's facilities were
terminated as part of plant shutdowns at its Boca Raton, Florida

AEROHIVE NETWORKS: Silverberg Balks at Extreme Networks Merger
--------------------------------------------------------------
HERBERT SILVERBERG, on Behalf of Himself and All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, vs. AEROHIVE NETWORKS, INC., INGRID
BURTON, REMO CANESSA, DAVID K. FLYNN, CURT GARNER, FRANK MARSHALL,
JOHN GORDON PAYNE, and CONWAY RULON-MILLER, the Defendants, Case
3:19-cv-04089-JD (N.D. Cal., July 17, 2019), seeks to enjoin the
expiration of a tender offer which, if completed, will result in
Extreme Networks, Inc., through its affiliate Clover Merger Sub,
Inc., acquiring Aerohive without Defendants making disclosure of
relevant material facts, pursuant to Sections 14(d)(4), 14(e) and
20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Alternatively, should
the Proposed Transaction close based upon an uninformed shareholder
vote, the Plaintiff seeks appraisal damages for all damages
sustained as a result of Defendants' wrongdoing.

On June 26, 2019, Extreme and Aerohive issued a joint press release
announcing that they had entered into an Agreement and Plan of
Merger, dated June 26, 2019 pursuant to which Extreme proposes to
acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Aerohive
at a price of $4.45 per share in cash, in a transaction valued at
approximately $272 million, and which assigns an enterprise value
of approximately $210 million to Aerohive after accounting for its
net cash balance of approximately $62 million.

The Information Agent for the Offer is MacKenzie Partners, Inc.,
1407 Broadway, New York, New York 10018. Extreme commenced the
Offer on July 12, 2019. The Offer is scheduled to expire at
midnight (New York City Time) at the end of the day on Thursday,
August 8, 2019.

On July 12, 2019, Aerohive filed, with the SEC, a
Solicitation/Recommendation Statement under Section 14(d)(4) of the
Exchange Act on Schedule 14D-9 recommending that Aerohive's
stockholders tender their shares in favor of the Proposed
Transaction. The Recommendation Statement omits or misrepresents
material information regarding, among other things: (a) Aerohive's
Financial Projections, including the projections relied upon by
Evercore, its financial advisor; (b) Evercore's Analyses and
Fairness Opinion; and (c) the Process Leading up to the Proposed
Transaction.

The Board proposes, through the Recommendation Statement and
without fully disclosing all material information, that Aerohive's
public stockholders divest of valuable Company equity. As a result
of the Board’s omissions, Aerohive stockholders are unable to
make 28 a fully informed decision whether to tender their shares in
support of the Proposed Transaction or seek appraisal, in violation
of the Exchange Act. To remedy Defendants' violations, the
Plaintiff seeks to enjoin the expiration of the Offer unless and
until such problems are remedied, the lawsuit says.[BN]

ALLSTATE PROPERTY: 10th Cir. Affirms Judgment in Zevallos Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, MIRIAM ZEVALLOS, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. ALLSTATE
PROPERTY AND CASUALTY COMPANY, Defendant-Appellee, Case No. 18-1150
(10th Cir.), Judge Harris L. Hartz of the U.S. Court of Appeals for
the Tenth Circuit affirmed the district court's grant of judgment
in favor of Allstate.

The sole issue before the Court is whether Colorado public policy
renders void a settlement agreement entered into by the Plaintiff
and Allstate.  The issue was recently resolved by the Court's
decision in McCracken v. Progressive Direct Insurance Co.

On Aug. 20, 2012, the Plaintiff was injured in an automobile
accident.  She was insured under a policy issued by Allstate that
provided two types of coverage relevant to this dispute: $5,000
coverage for Medical Payments ("MedPay") and
$50,000-per-person/$100,000-per-accident coverage for Uninsured and
Underinsured Motorist ("UM/UIM") benefits.  Allstate paid the
Plaintiff $5,000 under her MedPay coverage; and she reached a
$100,000 policy-limit settlement with the tortfeasor's insurer.
She then sought to recover from Allstate under her UM/UIM
coverage.

On June 11, 2014, Allstate sent the Plaintiff a letter offering to
settle the UM/UIM benefits claim.  The letter stated that Allstate
had calculated the Plaintiff's total damages as $96,737 ($68,737 in
medical expenses plus $28,000 in noneconomic damages) and evaluated
her claim at $91,737 after subtracting the $5,000 previously paid
under the MedPay coverage.  Allstate concluded that the Plaintiff's
evaluation of her claim was within the amount settled by the
underlying $100,000 and therefore offered her $1,500 as a
compromised offer of settlement.  Ultimately, the parties executed
a settlement agreement on Sept. 26, 2014, with Allstate paying the
Plaintiff $2,700 in UM/UIM benefits and the Plaintiff discharging
Allstate of all liability under the UM/UIM coverage.

More than two years later, the Colorado Supreme Court held in
Calderon v. American Family Mutual Insurance Co., that the setoff
prohibition of Colo. Rev. Stat. Section 10-4-609(1)(c) (2016) bars
insurers from subtracting MedPay benefits from their UM/UIM
liability.  Four days after that decision, the Plaintiff filed a
putative class action against Allstate in Colorado state court
alleging breach of contract and seeking damages and a declaratory
judgment on the ground that the Allstate companies had unlawfully
reduced amounts paid to their insureds under their UM/UIM coverages
by setoffs from their MedPay coverages under their respective
automobile policies.

Allstate removed the case to the U.S. District Court for the
District of Colorado.  Allstate's answer attached copies of the
insurance policy, its settlement-offer letter, and the settlement
and release executed by the Plaintiff.  It moed for judgment on the
pleadings under Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(c).  The district court granted
the motion, ruling that the Plaintiff's claim was barred by the
release in her settlement agreement, which was not contrary to
Colorado public policy.

The Plaintiff does not dispute that she voluntarily signed the
release or that the matter before the Court falls within the scope
of the release.  Rather, she asserts that Allstate reduced the
amount of UM/UIM benefits it agreed to pay her in the settlement by
offsetting the amount already paid in MedPay benefits, thus
rendering the settlement agreement contrary to public policy, as
determined in Calderon.  She contends that insurers like Allstate
cannot use releases to accomplish what the law forbids, and illegal
agreements improperly diluting UM/UIM coverage are unenforceable.

Judge Hartz holds that the Court rejected an identical argument in
McCracken.  In that case, the plaintiffs held insurance policies
that included MedPay coverage and UM/UIM coverage, and they
received MedPay benefits after bing injured in motor-vehicle
collisions.  Then, before Calderon was handed down, they discharged
all their claims against their insurers in settlement agreements
where the insurers offset the MedPay payments in calculating the
settlement amounts under the UM/UIM coverage.  Relying in large
part on the decision of the Colorado Court of Appeals in Arline v.
American Family Mutual Insurance Co., the Court held that the
releases were not contrary to public policy and were enforceable.

The Court has filed its opinion in McCracken by the time the
Plaintiff submitted her reply brief in the case.  That brief noted
that a petition for certiorari with the Colorado Supreme Court was
pending in Arline, and she made the reasonable request that it
withholds decision until the high court acted on the petition.  It
has now denied the petition.

Because the relevant facts in the matter are indistinguishable from
those in McCracken, the Court is bound by that precedent and
accordingly rejects the Plaintiff's argument.  Judge Hartz
accordigly affirmed the judgment.

AMAZON.COM: Tice Says Alexa Records Voices & Conversations
----------------------------------------------------------
HAYLEY CHARMAINE TICE, INDIVIDUALLY AND ON BEHALF OF A CLASS OF
SIMILARLY SITUATED INDIVIDUALS, the Plaintiffs, vs. AMAZON.COM INC.
and A2Z DEVELOPMENT CENTER, INC., the Defendants, Case No.
5:19-cv-01311 (C.D. Cal., July 17, 2019), targets Amazon's unlawful
recording, permanent storage, analysis, and use of the voices and
conversations of adult Californians communicating with or otherwise
heard by Amazon's Alexa recording devices.

According to the complaint, every time Plaintiff used the Echo Dot
Device to communicate with Alexa, Amazon recorded her voice and
communications and permanently stored those recordings on its
servers. It may also have analyzed some or all of these.

The Plaintiff was not a registered Alexa account holder and Amazon
never warned Plaintiff that her voice and communications were being
recorded by the Alexa Device. The Plaintiff also never consented to
the recording, storage, review/analysis, or use of her voice and
communications, the lawsuit says.

Amazon.com, Inc., is an American multinational technology company
based in Seattle, Washington that focuses on e-commerce, cloud
computing, digital streaming, and artificial intelligence. It is
considered one of the Big Four technology companies along with
Google, Apple, and Facebook.[BN]

BARNES & NOBLE: Karia Balks at Elliott Buyout Deal
--------------------------------------------------
MITUL KARIA, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, v. BARNES & NOBLE, INC., GEORGE CAMPBELL,
JR., MARK D. CARLETON, SCOTT S. COWEN, WILLIAM T. DILLARD II, AL
FERRARA, PAUL B. GUENTHER, PATRICIA L. HIGGINS, LEONARD RIGGIO,
IRWIN D. SIMON, KIMBERLY A. VAN DER ZON, CHAPTERS HOLDCO INC., and
CHAPTERS MERGER SUB INC., the Defendants, Case No. 2019-0552 (Del.
Chy., July 18, 2019), seeks to enjoin the expiration and
consummation of a tender offer unless and/or until defendants cure
their breaches of fiduciary duty, and/or to recover damages
resulting from defendants' violations of their fiduciary duties.

The Plaintiff brings this class action on behalf of the public
stockholders of Barnes & Noble, Inc. against the members of the
Company's Board of Directors for their breaches of fiduciary duties
arising out of their attempt to sell the Company to Elliott
Associates, L.P. and its affiliates, Chapters Holdco Inc. and
Chapters Mergers Sub Inc. without disclosing material information
to the Company's stockholders necessary for them to determine
whether to tender their shares or seek appraisal.

On June 7, 2019, the Company announced that it had signed a
definitive agreement under which, Elliott, through its wholly owned
subsidiaries, Holdco and Merger Sub, would commence a tender offer
to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Barnes & Noble for
$6.50 per share in cash.  The Proposed Transaction is valued at
approximately $683 million including the assumption of debt. On
June 24, 2019, the Company entered into an amendment to the Merger
Agreement that prescribed and finalized the two-step tender offer.

The Board members have breached their fiduciary duties by agreeing
to the Proposed Transaction for inadequate consideration. The
Company received and improperly rejected an offer of $7.25 per
share in cash following the entry into the Original Merger
Agreement merely because this superior offer would take a few weeks
to finalize.

On July 9, 2019, Merger Sub commenced the Tender Offer, which is
set to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on August 6, 2019.
The Tender Offer provides that the number of shares of Barnes &
Noble's common stock that have to be validly tendered, together
with the shares beneficially owned by Merger Sub and its
affiliates, if any, must represent at least one share more than
one-half of the total number of outstanding shares of Barnes &
Noble common stock as of the Expiration Date or at the time and
date to which the Tender Offer has been extended. The Tender Offer
is not subject to any financing condition.

Contemporaneously with the commencement of the Tender Offer, on
July 9, 2019, the Defendants filed, or caused to be filed, a
Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Scheduled 14D-9 with the
United States Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with
the Proposed Transaction, which contained material omissions in
breach of the fiduciary duty of candor owed by the Individual
Defendants to Barnes & Noble's stockholders.

Barnes & Noble, Inc., a Fortune 1000 company, is the bookseller
with the largest number of retail outlets in the United States and
a retailer of content, digital media, and educational
products.[BN]

BARNES & NOBLE: Shaev Balks at Elliott Takeover
-----------------------------------------------
DAVID SHAEV, Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, vs. BARNES & NOBLE, INC., LEONARD RIGGIO,
GEORGE CAMPBELL JR., SCOTT S. COWEN, WILLIAM T. DILLARD II, AL
FERRARA, MARK D. CARLETON, PAUL B. GUENTHER, PATRICIA L. HIGGINS,
KIMBERLY A. VAN DER ZON, and IRWIN D. SIMON, the Defendants, Case
No. 1:19-cv-01341-UNA (D. Del., July 17, 2019), seeks to enjoin
Defendants from taking any steps to consummate a merger transaction
or, in the event the transaction is consummated, to recover damages
resulting from the Defendants' wrongdoing.

The action stems from a proposed transaction initially announced on
June 7, 2019, pursuant to which Chapters Holdco Inc. will acquire
Barnes & Noble, Inc. by way of a tender offer.

On June 6, 2019, B&N's board of directors caused the Company to
enter into a merger agreement with Chapters Merger Sub Inc., a
Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Chapters
Holdco Inc.; and Chapters Holdco Inc., a Delaware corporation
controlled by Elliott Associates, L.P., a Delaware limited
partnership, and Elliott International, L.P., a Cayman Islands
limited partnership.

The Original Merger Agreement was subsequently amended on June 24,
2019. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement Amendment, the
acquirer will purchase all of B&N's outstanding shares at a
purchase price of $6.50 per share in cash.

On July 9, 2019, B&N filed a Solicitation/Recommendation Statement
on a Schedule 14D-9 with the United States Securities and Exchange
Commission in connection with the Tender Offer.  According to
Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. in a press statement, the Complaint alleges
that, in an attempt to secure shareholder support for the Proposed
Transaction, defendants issued materially incomplete disclosures in
a solicitation statement filed with the United States Securities
and Exchange Commission.  The Complaint alleges that the
Solicitation Statement omits material information with respect to,
among other things, Barnes & Noble's financial projections and the
analyses performed by Barnes & Noble's financial advisors. The
Complaint seeks injunctive and equitable relief and damages on
behalf of holders of Barnes & Noble common stock.

Barnes & Noble, a Fortune 1000 company, is the bookseller with the
largest number of retail outlets in the United States and a
retailer of content, digital media, and educational products. As of
March 7, 2019, the company operates 627 retail stores in all 50
U.S. states.[BN]

BMW NA: Martinez Sues over Warranty
-----------------------------------
ROLANDO MARTINEZ, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, vs. BMW OF NORTH AMERICA, LLC,
and DOES 1 through 100, the Defendants, Case No. RGl9027350 (Cal.
Super., July 17, 2019), alleges that BMW failed to properly
identify all "high-priced warranted parts" that should be covered
under California's 7-year 70,000-mile emissions control warranty.
As a result, Plaintiff and members of the Class are paying out of
pocket for repairs that should be covered under warranty.

For decades, BMW has been in the business of importing and
distributing BMW vehicles to the State of California, with the
intent to sell BMW vehicles to consumers in California. As such,
the BMW vehicles have been subject to state and federal regulations
regarding both emissions standards and BMW's obligation to provide
consumers with warranties relating to emissions parts.

The Plaintiff and other consumers have suffered damage and lost
money or property as a result of BMW's wrongful, unfair, unlawful,
and fraudulent conduct, the lawsuit says.[BN]

BOEING COMPANY: Pilot D Alleges Aircraft Design Flaw Cover-Up
-------------------------------------------------------------
PILOT D, individually and on behalf of all those similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, vs. THE BOEING COMPANY, a Delaware
corporation, the Defendant, Case No. 2019CH08418 (Ill. Cir., July
18, 2019), seeks compensation on behalf of the Plaintiff and more
than 100 pilots qualified to fly the Boeing 737 MAX series of
aircraft (the "MAX") as employees of an international airline
("Airline X"), whose professional and personal lives were harmfully
impacted when BOEING and the Federal Aviation Administration
engaged in an unprecedented cover-up of the known design flaws of
the MAX, which predictably resulted in the crashes of two MAX
aircraft and subsequent grounding of all MAX aircraft worldwide.

The Plaintiff says he relied on BOEING's representations that the
MAX was safe when qualifying to fly the MAX, and thus suffered --
and continues to suffer -- significant lost wages, among other
economic and non-economic damages, since the MAX was grounded.

Additionally, the Plaintiff says he suffered severe emotional and
mental stress when they were effectively forced to fly the MAX --
and required to place their own life and the lives of their crew
and passengers in clanger -- despite the growing awareness of the
dangerous nature of the previously concealed software on board the
MAX and other problems, the lawsuit says.

Boeing Company is an American multinational corporation that
designs, manufactures, and sells airplanes, rotorcraft, rockets,
satellites, comms gear and missiles worldwide.[BN]

CREDIT BUREAU: Keagle Files Suit Over Illegal Fees
--------------------------------------------------
Kevin Keagle and Tabitha Fling, on behalf of themselves and all
others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. Credit Bureau of Carbon
County, Inc. dba CollectionCenter, Inc., Defendant, Case No.
1:19-cv-02107 (D. Colo., July 22, 2019) is a putative class action
against Defendant pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection Practices
Act.

In connection with the collection of the Debt, Defendant sent
Plaintiffs written communication in or around October 2018. In
response, Ms. Fling called Defendant to make payment arrangements
on the Debt. During the call, Ms. Fling agreed that Plaintiffs
would make payments of $25 each month. Ms. Fling authorized
Defendant to electronically withdraw $25 from her checking account
on the fifth day of each month. The Defendant informed Ms. Fling
that Plaintiffs' first payment would necessarily include a one-time
"convenience fee" of $3. On November 5, 2018, Defendant withdrew
$28 from Plaintiffs' checking account which included the one-time
"convenience fee" of $3. Upon information and belief, no law
expressly permits Defendant to charge Plaintiffs with a $3
convenience fee for withdrawing payments from a consumer's checking
account, says the complaint.

Plaintiffs are natural persons allegedly obligated to pay a debt.

Defendant regularly collects or attempts to collect, directly or
indirectly, debts owed or due, or asserted to be owed or due,
another.[BN]

CYPRESS SEMICONDUCTOR: Nozawa Files Suit Over Infineon Merger Deal
------------------------------------------------------------------
HIROYUKI NOZAWA, Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, Plaintiff, v. CYPRESS SEMICONDUCTOR CORPORATION, W. STEVE
ALBRECHT, HASSANE EL-KHOURY, OH CHUL KWON, CATHERINE P. LEGO,
CAMILLO MARTINO, JEFFREY J. OWENS, JEANNINE SARGENT, and MICHAEL S.
WISHART Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-06821 (S.D. N.Y., July 23,
2019) is a class action on behalf of the public shareholders of
Cypress against the Company's Board of Directors for their
violations of Section 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange
Act in connection with the proposed sale of the Company to Infineon
Technologies AG.

On June 3, 2019, Cypress entered into an agreement and plan of
merger with Infineon and IFX Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly owned
subsidiary of Parent ("Merger Sub"), pursuant to which, among other
things, Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company, with the
Company continuing as the surviving corporation and a wholly owned
subsidiary of Infineon. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the
Company's shareholders will receive $23.85 in cash for each share
of Cypress common stock owned. The consummation of the Proposed
Transaction is subject to certain closing conditions, including the
approval of the stockholders of Cypress.

On July 2, 2019, in order to convince Cypress' stockholders to vote
in favor of the Proposed Transaction, the Board authorized the
filing of a materially incomplete and misleading proxy statement
with the SEC, in violation of the Exchange Act, says the complaint.


For this reason, the Plaintiff asserts claims against Cypress and
the Board for violations of the Exchange Act. Plaintiff seeks to
enjoin Defendants from taking any steps to consummate the Proposed
Transaction unless and until the material information is disclosed
to Cypress stockholders before the vote on the Proposed Transaction
or, in the event the Proposed Transaction is consummated, recover
damages resulting from the Defendants' violations of the Exchange
Act, says the complaint.

Plaintiff is, and has been at all times relevant hereto, the owner
of Cypress common stock.

Cypress manufactures and sells advanced embedded system solutions
for automotive, industrial, consumer and enterprise end
markets.[BN]

D.C.G. INC: Parrott Sues over House Fees & Tip-Pooling
------------------------------------------------------
LAURA PARROTT on Behalf of Herself and on Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, the Plaintiffs, v. D.C.G., INC., d/b/a THE
LODGE AND DAWN M. RIZOS, the Defendants, Case No. 3:19-cv-01718-N
(N.D. Tex., July 18, 2019), alleges that Defendants misclassify
dancers, including Plaintiff, as independent contractors so that
they do not have to compensate them at the federally mandated
minimum wage rate, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, the Defendants required and/or
permitted Laura Parrott to work as an exotic dancer at their adult
entertainment club but refused to compensate her at the applicable
minimum wage. In fact, the Defendants refused to compensate her
whatsoever for any hours worked. Plaintiff's only compensation was
in the form of tips from club patrons.

The Defendants took money from Parrott in the form of "house fees"
or "rent" as a prerequisite to do her job for the benefit of the
club. Parrott was also required to divide her tips with Defendants'
managers and employees who do not customarily receive tips outside
of a valid tip pool. Without justification or excuse, Plaintiff's
tips and wages were confiscated, and she is owed lost wages, the
lawsuit says.[BN]

DIRECTV LLC: Settlement in Jantos Suit Has Final Approval
---------------------------------------------------------
In the case, JAMES JANTOS, individually, and on behalf of similarly
situated individuals, Plaintiff, v. DIRECTV, a Delaware
Corporation; DIRECTV, LLC, a California Limited Liability
Corporation; and QWEST CORPORATION d/b/a CENTURYLINK QC, a Colorado
Corporation, Defendants, Case No. 2:18-cv-00413-TSZ (W.D. Wash.),
Judge Thomas S. Zilly of the U.S. District Court for the Western
District of Washington, Seattle, granted (i) the Parties' joint
motion for final approval of the proposed class settlement, and
(ii) the Plaintiff's motion for attorney fees, costs, and incentive
award.

On Dec. 12, 2018, the Parties executed an Amended Class Action
Settlement Agreement and Release of All Claims.  The ourt granted
preliminary approval to the proposed class action settlement
between the Parties in its Order Granting Preliminary Approval of
Class Action Settlement.

The proposed Settlement resolves all of the Settlement Class's and
the DIRECTV Subclass' claims against the Defendants in exchange for
specified benefits outlined in the Settlement Agreement.  The Court
also certified the Settlement Class and the DIRECTV Subclass for
settlement purposes only, appointed Plaintiff Jantos as the Class
Representative of the Settlement Class and the DIRECTV Subclass,
and appointed the law firms of Sirianni Youtz Spoonemore Hamburger,
and Myers & Company, PLLC as the Class Counsel for the Settlement
Class and the DIRECTV Subclass.

The Court held a fairness hearing on June 14, 2019, to consider
whether to grant final approval to the Settlement.  It heard
argument from counsel for the Parties concerning the Settlement.
No other person appeared to object, to support, or comment on the
Settlement.

Having read, reviewed and considered the papers filed in support of
final approval of the Settlement, to which no written objection was
filed, the Settlement Agreement, and the pleadings, Judge Zilly
made final the Court's conditional certification of the "Settlement
Class" and the "DIRECTV Subclass" as defined in its Preliminary
Approval Order.  One member of the Settlement Class, June Williams,
has timely requested to be excluded from the Class and the
Settlement.  Accordingly, the Order and the Settlement will not
bind or affect June Williams.

The Settlement requires the Defendants to provide specified
benefits to each Participating Settlement Class Member, as defined
and set forth in the Settlement Agreement.

All Settlement Class Members that have not excluded themselves from
the Settlement will receive an activation code for one year of
three-bureau credit monitoring service and $1 million in identity
theft insurance, which has an approximate retail value of $180.

All DIRECTV Subclass members that have not excluded themselves from
the Settlement will receive, in addition to the ability to activate
credit monitoring service and identity theft insurance, $520 in the
form of a credit to their CenturyLink bill if they are a Current
CenturyLink Customer.  Current CenturyLink Customers may seek
distribution of any credit balance on their account in accordance
with the usual policies and procedures of CenturyLink for refunding
credit balances.  The initial determination of who qualifies as a
Current CenturyLink Customer will be based upon CenturyLink's
records as of the date of the Order.

All DIRECTV Subclass members who are no longer Current CenturyLink
Customers as of the date that the class benefit is provided to
Settlement Class Members will receive, in addition to the ability
to activate credit monitoring service and identity theft insurance,
$520 payable by check.

The Judge granted the parties' joint motion for final approval of
the Settlement, and the Plaintiff's motion for attorney fees,
costs, and incentive award.  The Defendants will pay the Class
Counsel's fees and costs in the amount of $150,000 and the $10,000
incentive fee to Class Representative James Jantos, in accordance
with and at the times prescribed by the Settlement Agreement.

The claims in the matter are dismissed with prejudice, except as to
June Williams, who has opted out of the Settlement, and the Clerk
is directed to close the case.

EDWARD D. JONES: Time to File Notice of Appeal in Huang Extended
----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, VALESKA SCHULTZ, et al., Plaintiffs, v. EDWARD D.
JONES & CO., L.P., et al., Defendants, Case No. 4:16-cv-1346-JAR
(E.D. Mo.), Judge John A. Ross of the U.S. District Court for the
Eastern District of Missouri, Eastern Division, granted
Objector-Appellant Shiyang Huang's pro se motion for extension of
time to file a notice of appeal.

On April 22, 2019, the Court entered its judgment approving
settlement of the class action and order awarding attorneys' fees,
reimbursement of expenses and case contribution awards.  Pursuant
to Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 4(a)(1), Huang had 30 days
to file his notice of appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the
Eighth Circuit.  The deadline, therefore, for filing a notice of
appeal in thie case was May 22, 2019.  However, Huang's notice of
appeal was filed on May 28, 2019.  After being notified by the
Eighth Circuit that his notice of appeal appeared untimely, Huang
filed the instant motion pursuant to Rule 4(a)(5).  Under Rule
4(a)(5), the district court may extend the time to file a notice of
appeal if the party so moves no later than 30 days after the
original filing deadline and shows excusable neglect or good
cause.

In support of his motion, Huang asserts that the delay in filing
was beyond his control.  He explains that as a pro se litigant he
lacks access to the CM/ECF electronic filing system and thus mailed
his notice of appeal by U.S. mail on May 20, 2019, with expected
delivery on May 22, 2019.  The envelope in which Huang's notice of
appeal was mailed to the Court is date stamped received by the
Court on May 23, 2019.  Huang also states he separately served his
notice of appeal to all parties by electronic mail on May 20, 2019
as well as by U.S. first-class mail.

Judge Ross finds good cause under the circumstances.  Furthermore,
any impact on judicial proceedings caused by the late filing was
minimal, as is any prejudice to the defendants.  Huang also appears
to have acted in good faith.  Although he might have mailed his
notice earlier to account for any delivery issues with the postal
service, the Judge will grant Huang's motion for good cause.  Huang
is cautioned that he must pay the $505 docketing fee for his appeal
immediately and that failure to do so will result in the issuance
of an order from the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals to show cause
why his appeal should not be dismissed.

Huang's pro se motion for extension of time to file a notice of
appeal is therefore granted.

EL PASO ELECTRIC: Rosenblatt Files Suit Over Sun Merger Deal
------------------------------------------------------------
JORDAN ROSENBLATT, Individually and On Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, Plaintiff, v. EL PASO ELECTRIC COMPANY, CHARLES
A. YAMARONE, EDWARD ESCUDERO, PAUL M. BARBAS, JAMES W. CICCONI,
MARY E. KIPP, RAYMOND PALACIOS, JR., ERIC B. SIEGEL, STEPHEN N.
WERTHEIMER, SUN JUPITER HOLDINGS LLC, and SUN MERGER SUB INC.,
Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-01367-UNA (D. Del., July 23, 2019) is
an action stemming from a proposed transaction announced on June 3,
2019, pursuant to which El Paso Electric Company will be acquired
by Sun Jupiter Holdings LLC ("Parent"), a Delaware limited
liability company, and Sun Merger Sub Inc. ("Merger Sub," and
collectively with Parent, "Sun").

On June 1, 2019, El Paso's Board of Directors caused the Company to
enter into an agreement and plan of merger with Sun. Pursuant to
the terms of the Merger Agreement, Sun's stockholders will receive
$68.25 in cash for each share of El Paso common stock they own. On
July 16, 2019, defendants filed a proxy statement with the United
States Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the
Proposed Transaction. However, the Proxy Statement omits material
information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders
the Proxy Statement false and misleading. Accordingly, Plaintiff
alleges that Defendants violated Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 in connection with the Proxy
Statement, says the complaint.

Plaintiff is the owner of El Paso common stock.

El Paso is an electric utility that provides generation,
transmission, and distribution service to approximately 428,000
retail and wholesale customers in a 10,000 square mile area of the
Rio Grande valley in west Texas and southern New Mexico.[BN]

FRED'S INC: Zaller Sues over Botched Rite-Aid Purchase Deal
-----------------------------------------------------------
THEODORE J. ZALLER, Individually and on Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, v. FRED'S INC., MICHAEL K.
BLOOM, WALGREENS BOOTS ALLIANCE, INC., STEFANO PESSINA and GEORGE
R. FAIRWEATHER, the Defendants, Case No. 2:19-cv-02415 (W.D. Tenn.,
June 27, 2019), seeks to recover damages caused by Defendants'
dissemination of materially false and misleading statements in
violation of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934. The case is a federal securities class action on
behalf of a class consisting of all persons other than Defendants
who purchased or otherwise acquired Fred's securities between
December 20, 2016 and June 28, 2017, both dates inclusive.

On October 27, 2015, Rite Aid Corp. and Walgreens jointly announced
an Agreement and Plan of Merger pursuant to which Walgreens would
acquire Rite Aid for $9.00 per share in cash.  To convince the
investing public that it would receive Federal Trade Commission
("FTC") approval to complete the Original Merger, Walgreens and
Rite Aid entered into an agreement with Fred's to sell 86 Rite Aid
stores for $950 million in an all-cash transaction to complete the
Original Merger.

On January 30, 2017, Rite Aid and Walgreens announced that they had
entered into a new merger agreement, which cut the proposed
consideration for Rite Aid stockholders from $9.00 per share to
between $6.50 to $7.00 per share.  On June 29, 2017, Rite Aid and
Walgreens announced that they had terminated the Revised Merger
Agreement. Following the termination of the Revised Merger
Agreement, Walgreens terminated the Fred's Pharmacy asset purchase
agreement.

The preliminary proxy statement related to the Revised Merger
Agreement that Rite Aid filed with the SEC on Schedule 14A on March
3, 2017 the termination of the Revised Merger Agreement, Walgreens
terminated the Fred's Pharmacy asset purchase agreement.  The
Defendants made numerous materially false and misleading statements
concerning the level of regulatory risk faced by the Original
Merger and the Revised Merger which would ultimately cause the
termination of the Fred's Asset Purchase Agreement.

Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements:
(i) downplaying or disputing contrary reports from journalists
signaling regulatory turbulence in closing the merger; (ii)
representing that inside knowledge of the FTC gave confidence that
the deal would close.

The Plaintiff and the Class have suffered damages in that, in
reliance on the integrity of the market, they paid artificially
inflated prices for Fred's stock. Plaintiff and the Class would not
have purchased Fred's common stock during the Class Period at the
prices they paid, or at all, if they had been aware that the market
prices had been artificially and falsely inflated by Defendants'
misleading statements.

Fred's Inc. operates approximately 550 discount value stores and
its mission is to make it easy and exciting to save money. Its
unique format offers customers a full range of value-priced
everyday items, along with terrific deals on closeout merchandise
throughout the store.[BN]

FREEMAN SECURITY: Rivera to Recover Money Damages for Unpaid Wages
------------------------------------------------------------------
JUAN RIVERA, on his own behalf and on behalf of those similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. FREEMAN SECURITY SERVICES, INC., a Florida
Corporation, Defendant, Case No. 6:19-cv-01353 (M.D. Fla., July 23,
2019) is an action seeking to recover money damages for unpaid
overtime wages, retaliation and additional damages under the Fair
Labor Standards Act.

The complaint alleges that Plaintiff and similarly situated
employees were never compensated for any work performed beyond 40
hours per week. The Defendant did not compensate the Plaintiff, and
those similarly situated employees, at one and a half times their
hourly rate for any hours worked over 40 per workweek. The
Defendant and its representatives knew that Plaintiff, and those
similarly situated employees, were working overtime and that
federal law requires employees such as the Plaintiff to be
compensated at time and one-half per hour for overtime pay, says
the complaint.

The Plaintiff was employed by the Defendant from approximately 2012
through November 2018 starting as a Security Officer before rising
to supervisor.

GARDA USA: Sunderland Sues over Wage & Hour Violations
------------------------------------------------------
Michael Dean Sunderland and Peter John Reiff, individually and on
behalf of all other similarly situated individuals and the Proposed
Minnesota Rule 23 Class, the Plaintiffs, vs. Garda USA, Inc., the
Defendant, Case No. 0:19-cv-01877 (D. Minn., July 17, 2019), seeks
redress for wage and hour violations committed by GardaWorld
Security Corporation.

The Plaintiffs have worked as drivers/messengers/guards for Garda
USA. The Plaintiffs worked as non-exempt hourly employees for more
than 40 hours per week with vehicles having a gross vehicle weight
rating (GVWR) of less than 10,001 pounds.

Garda has not paid -- and does not pay -- Plaintiffs overtime wage
rates for all hours worked over 40 per week. Rather, Garda has
implemented a policy of refusing to pay overtime wages for all
hours worked over 40 per week.

As a result of Garda's illegal practices, Plaintiffs, similarly
situated individuals, and the proposed Rule 23 Class have been
injured, suffering economic damages for which they are entitled to
relief.

GardaWorld is a Canadian private security firm.[BN]

GENERAL DYNAMICS: Loreto Suit Seeks Proper Wages
------------------------------------------------
JOSE LORETO, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff v. GENERAL DYNAMICS INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY,
INC., a Virginia Corporation; and DOES 1 through 10, inclusive,
Defendants, Case No. 3:19-cv-01366-GPC-MSB (S.D. Cal., July 23,
2019) is a class and collective action against Defendant under the
Fair Labor Standards Act.

The Defendants had a consistent policy of that did not accurately
calculate the regular rate of pay for non-exempt employees because
it failed to add all remuneration earned, including bonuses, cash
in lieu of benefits, and other amounts, in violation of California
and federal wage and hour laws.

Moreover, the Defendants issued wage statements to Plaintiff and
other Class members, with the incorrect name and address of the
legal entity that is the employer, and inaccurately state the gross
wages, total hours worked, net wages earned, applicable hourly
rates in effect and the number of hours worked at each hourly rate.
These wage statement defects are the result of Defendants' failure
to pay overtime and meal and rest period premiums at the regular
rate of pay, thus rendering the wage statement total amounts
inaccurate. The Defendants' wage statements fail to include pay for
all overtime wages and premiums at the lawful regular rate of pay,
which render the wage statements inaccurate, incomplete, and
unlawful, says the complaint.

Plaintiff was employed by GDIT in San Diego County, California as a
Maintenance Technician, and later a Maintenance Worker, from
February 2016 through the present.

General Dynamics Information Technology, Inc. is a Virginia
corporation, which conducts business in the County of San Diego,

GOOGLE.COM INC: Morales Sues Over Illegal Use of Biometric Info
---------------------------------------------------------------
NYLTZA MORALES, RITU KATHPALIA, and RITU KATHPALIA, as next friend
of D.Z.K., a minor, each individually, and on behalf of all others
similarly situated v. GOOGLE.COM, INC., a Delaware corporation, and
GOOGLE.COM SERVICES, INC., a Delaware corporation, Case No.
2019CH08309 (Ill. Cir., Cook Cty., July 15, 2019), accuses the
Defendant of violating the Plaintiffs' privacy rights guaranteed
under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act.

Google LLC is a Delaware corporation with its headquarters located
in Mountain View, California.  Google is a purveyor of a multitude
of services.  One of those services is Google Assistant, which much
like Amazon's Alexa or Apple's Siri, is a voice-based smart
assistant.

Google Assistant devices record and respond to oral communications
upon hearing the wake word.  Google Assistant device records the
oral communications that follow, including ambient speaking in the
background not even meant for Google Assistant.  The Google
Assistant device transmits all of these oral communications to
Google's servers.  Google then indefinitely stores copies of all
recordings on its own servers for continued use and analysis.

The Plaintiffs alleges that Google does not inform Google Assistant
users in writing that Google Assistant is collecting biometric
information or biometric identifiers.  They add, among other
things, that Google does not inform bystanders--people who speak in
the vicinity of Google Assistant devices but do not own Google
Assistant devices nor have Google Assistant accounts--in writing
that Google is collecting biometric information or biometric
identifiers.[BN]

-------------------------------------------------------------
HECTOR G. SAADE, the Plaintiff, vs. INSEL AIR f/k/a INSEL AIR
INTERNATIONAL B.V. and INSELAIR ARUBA N.V., the Defendants, Case
No. 1:17-cv-22003-KMW (S.D. Fla.), the Hon. Judge Kathleen M.
Williams entered an order:

airline of Curacao. It was headquartered in Maduro Plaza,
Willemstad. Insel Air last served five destinations throughout the
Caribbean, South America. Its fleet consisted of Fokker 50
aircraft.[CC]

INTRA-NATIONAL HOME: Mishra Seeks OT Pay for Direct Care Workers
----------------------------------------------------------------
Khina M. Mishra, Narayan Dhungana, Deepa Ghimirey, and Virendra K.
Dhungel, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiffs, vs. Intra-National Home Care, LLC, Dilli
Adhikari, Meg Subedi, Bhagiman Gurung, Doe Narayan Bharati, and
Kamal Pokhrel, the Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-01233-UN1 (M.D.
Pa., July 18, 2019), seeks to recover overtime wages under the Fair
Labor Standards Act, the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection
Law, and the Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act of 1968.

The Plaintiffs were employed as Direct Care Workers (DCWs) by
Intra-National. The Plaintiffs have been required and/or permitted
to work in excess of 40 hours per workweek, but have not been
compensated at time and a half for all hours worked over 40 hours
in a given workweek. Because the DCWs were not properly paid
overtime for more than 80 hours in any given two-week pay period,
Intra-National received unpaid labor from its DCWs. Rather, DCW's
have been compensated at straight time, the lawsuit says.

Intra-National provides non-medical in-home care services,
companionship and personal care to consumers throughout
Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan.[BN]

KETORO INC: Reaves Sues Over Unsolicited Text Messages
------------------------------------------------------
DERRICK REAVES, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. KETORO, INC. d/b/a ORO LOS ANGELES
Defendant, Case No. 8:19-cv-01421 (C.D. Cal., July 23, 2019) is
brought by the Plaintiff on behalf of himself and all persons in
the United States who have received unsolicited and unconsented-to
commercial text messages to their mobile phones from Defendant in
violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

On November 20, 2018, the Plaintiff received a marketing text from
Defendant through its 961-67 short code, attempted to opt-out by
texting "Stop" as per the instructions on the text, and then
received a confirmation text from Defendant affirming that he had
unsubscribed and would not be receiving any further messages.
Despite opting out and being informed that he would receive no
further texts, the Plaintiff received another marketing text from
Defendant the next day, November 21, 2018.

Even if he had provided such consent for the text of November 20,
2018, his "Stop" text that day revoked it, such that all subsequent
texts were unconsented-to and in violation of the TCPA. The
Defendant texted Plaintiff REAVES through an automated telephone
dialing system ("ATDS" or "autodialer"). The messages were
disruptive and diminished the Plaintiff's and the Class's usage and
enjoyment of their mobile phones, says the complaint.

Plaintiff REAVES is a citizen of the state of New York and a
resident of Queens County.

LABOR SOURCE: Murphy Sues Over Unpaid Minimum, Overtime Wages
-------------------------------------------------------------
MARCQUISE MURPHY and RATANYA ROGERS, Individually and on behalf of
all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. LABOR SOURCE, LLC
d/b/a/ CATSTAFF d/b/a ONE SOURCE STAFFING AND LABOR, and BLUSKY
RESTORATION CONTRACTORS, LLC, Defendants, Case No. 0:19-cv-01929
(D. Minn., July 23, 2019) is a collective and class action on
behalf of Plaintiffs and other similarly situated individuals who
have worked for Defendants to challenge Defendants' minimum wage
and overtime violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act, as well as
the wage, hour, labor, and other applicable laws of the States of
Minnesota, including the Minnesota Fair Labor Standards Act  and
the Minnesota Payment of Wages Act.

As manual laborers, Plaintiffs and the putative Class and
Collective Members were and are non-exempt employees under federal
and state wage and hour laws, and should receive minimum wage and
overtime pay consistent with the requirements of those laws.
However, Defendants do not pay their manual laborers minimum wage
and overtime as required by law. Instead, Defendants fraudulently
misrepresent the actual number of hours worked by their manual
laborers and make improper deductions from wages, thereby robbing
said employees of pay at the applicable minimum wage and at
time-and-a-half for overtime hours worked, says the complaint.

Plaintiffs worked for Defendants as manual laborers and
non-commercial driver in the States of Minnesota and Illinois.

One Source is a staffing agency and hires workers who perform work
in various states in the Country, including Minnesota and
Illinois.[BN]

MEDIDATA SOLUTIONS: Kent Files Suit Over Dassault Merger Deal
-------------------------------------------------------------
MICHAEL KENT, Individually and On Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, Plaintiff, v. MEDIDATA SOLUTIONS, INC., TAREK SHERIF,
GLEN DE VRIES, CARLOS DOMINGUEZ, GEORGE MCCULLOCH, NEIL KURTZ,
MARIA RIVAS, LEE SHAPIRO, and ROBERT B. TAYLOR, Defendants, Case
No. 1:19-cv-01361-UNA (D. Del., July 22, 2019) is an action
stemming from a proposed transaction announced on June 12, 2019,
pursuant to which Medidata Solutions, Inc. will be acquired by
Dassault Systemes SE, Dassault Systemes Americas Corp., and 3DS
Acquisition 6 Corp.

On June 11, 2019, Medidata's Board of Directors caused the Company
to enter into an agreement and plan of merger (the "Merger
Agreement") with Dassault. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger
Agreement, Medidata's stockholders will receive $92.25 in cash for
each share of Medidata common stock they own. On July 19, 2019,
Defendants filed a proxy statement with the United States
Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Proposed
Transaction, which scheduled a stockholder vote on the Proposed
Transaction for August 16, 2019.

The Plaintiff alleges that the Proxy Statement omits material
information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders
the Proxy Statement false and misleading. Accordingly, Plaintiff
alleges that Defendants violated Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "1934 Act") in connection with
the Proxy Statement.

Plaintiff is the owner of Medidata common stock.

MENASHA CORP: Alvarez Hits Biometrics Data Sharing
--------------------------------------------------
Noe Alvarez, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiffs, v. Menasha Corporation, Case No. 2019CH08270
(Ill. Cir., July 12, 2019), seeks an injunction requiring
Defendants to cease all unlawful activity related to the capture,
collection, storage and use of biometrics, statutory damages
together with costs and reasonable attorneys' fees under the
Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act.

Menasha Corporation offers packaging solutions throughout Illinois,
including in Cook County where Alvarez worked. He was required to
"clock-in" and "clock-out" using a timeclock that scanned
fingerprints. Menasha also improperly disclosed employees'
fingerprint data without informed consent, says the complaint.

MONSANTO COMPANY: Kusnetzes Sue over Sale of Herbicide Roundup

STANLEY KUSNETZ and FANY B. KUSNETZ, the Plaintiffs, v. MONSANTO
COMPANY, the Defendant, Case No. 3:19-cv-04069-VC (S.D.N.Y., May
23, 2019), seeks to recover damages suffered by the Plaintiff, as a
direct and proximate result of the Defendant's negligent and
wrongful conduct in connection with the design, development,
manufacture, testing, packaging, promoting, marketing, advertising,
distribution, labeling, and/or sale of the herbicide Roundup (TM),
containing the active ingredient glyphosate.

The Plaintiffs maintain that Roundup (TM) and/or glyphosate is
defective, dangerous to human health, unfit and unsuitable to be
marketed and sold in commerce, and lacked proper warnings and
directions as to the dangers associated with its use. Stanley
Kusnetz' injuries, like those striking thousands of similarly
situated victims across the country, were avoidable.

The Plaintiffs bring this action for personal injuries sustained by
exposure to Roundup (TM), which contains the active ingredient
glyphosate and the surfactant polyethoxylated tallow amine (POEA).
As a direct and proximate result of being exposed to Roundup, the
Plaintiff developed diffuse Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

Roundup refers to all formulations of Defendant's Roundup products,

NATIONSTAR MORTGAGE: Morandi Suit Asserts FDCPA Breach
------------------------------------------------------
KEN MORANDI and BLANCA MERCADO, individually and on behalf of all
others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. NATIONSTAR MORTGAGE LLC,
d/b/a MR. COOPER, Defendant, Case No. 2:19-cv-06334-MWF-MAA (C.D.
Cal., July 23, 2019) is a complaint under California's Rosenthal
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, alleging that Mr. Cooper
charged Plaintiffs, and the rest of its customers in California, a
fee for paying over the phone. Because Mr. Cooper retains a portion
of this fee, it is illegal under California law.

Mr. Cooper is a debt collector because it regularly engages in debt
collection, on behalf of itself or others.
Plaintiffs are the owners of residences which are subject to a
mortgage serviced by Defendant.

Plaintiffs' statements demonstrated that Mr. Cooper charged, and
Plaintiffs paid, a fee of $14.00 for making their payment over the
phone. In the months of December 2018, and September 2018 Mr.
Cooper also charged, and Plaintiff Blanca Mercado paid, a fee of
$19.00 (labeled "E-Pay Fee Assessed"). Mr. Cooper's website
currently admits that it charges the $14.00 to make an automated
phone payment and $19.00 to make a payment via phone call to a
representative.

Convenience fees, such as those charged by Mr. Cooper, have been
held unlawful because they violate the Rosenthal Act when the debt
collector retains any portion of the fee instead of passing the
entire fee through to the payment processor, the complaint asserts.
Mr. Cooper does not pass the entire fee to a payment processor and
instead retains a considerable portion thereof, says the
complaint.[BN]

NCAA: Rhodes Sues over Student-Athletes' Health & Safety
--------------------------------------------------------
RICARDO RHODES, the Plaintiff, vs. THE NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC
ASSOCIATION, AND MOUNTAIN WEST CONFERENCE, the Defendants, Case No.
1:19-cv-02816-JPH-MJD (S.D. Ind., July 9, 2019), seeks redress for
injuries sustained a result of Defendant's reckless disregard for
the health and safety of generations of student-athletes.

According to the complaint, nearly 100,000 student-athletes sign up
to compete in college football each year, and it's no surprise why.
Football is America's sport and Plaintiff and a Class of football
players were raised to live and breathe the game. During football
season, there are entire days of the week that millions of
Americans dedicate to watching the game. On game days, hundreds of
thousands of fans fill stadium seats and even more watch around the
world. Before each game, these players -- often mere teenagers --
are riled up and told to do whatever it takes to win and, when
playing, are motivated to do whatever it takes to keep going.

But up until 2010, NCAA kept players and the public in the dark
about an epidemic that was slowly killing college athletes. During
the course of a college football season, athletes absorb more than
1,000 impacts greater than 10 Gs (gravitational force) and, worse
yet, the majority of football-related hits to the head exceed 20
Gs, with some approaching 100 Gs. To put this in perspective, if
you drove your car into a wall at 25 miles per hour and weren't
wearing a seatbelt, the force of you hitting the windshield would
be around 100 Gs. Thus, each season these 18, 19, 20, and
21-year-old student-athletes are subjected to repeated car
accidents.

Over time, the repetitive and violent impacts to players' heads led
to repeated concussions that severely increased their risks of
long-term brain injuries, including memory loss, dementia,
depression, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy ("CTE"), Parkinson's
disease, and other related symptoms. Meaning, long after they
played their last game, they are left with a series of neurological
events that could slowly strangle their brains. For decades, NCAA
knew about the debilitating long-term dangers of concussions,
concussion-related injuries, and sub-concussive injuries (referred
to as "traumatic brain injuries" or "TBIs") that resulted from
playing college football, but recklessly disregarded this
information to protect the very profitable business of "amateur"
college football.

Football players were under Defendant's care. Unfortunately,
Defendant did not care about the off-field consequences that would
haunt students for the rest of their lives. Despite knowing for
decades of a vast body of scientific research describing the danger
of traumatic brain injuries ("TBIs") like those Plaintiff
experienced, Defendant failed to implement adequate procedures to
protect Plaintiff and other football players from the long-term
dangers associated with them. They did so knowingly and for
profit.

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

NCAA is a non-profit organization which regulates athletes of 1,268
North American institutions and conferences.[BN]

NEW YORK: Nell et al. Seek OT Pay for Motor Vehicle Operators

Plaintiffs, vs. THE CITY OF NEW YORK, the Defendant, Case No.
1:19-cv-06702 (S.D.N.Y., July 18, 2019), seeks to recover unpaid

Operators (MVOs) at the New York City Department of Corrections

fails to compensate plaintiffs for all hours worked over 40 in a
workweek at a rate of one and one-half times their regular rate of
pay.

Specifically, the City fails to compensate the Plaintiffs for hours
worked before the start of their scheduled shifts, after the end of
their scheduled shifts and during their 30-minute unpaid meal
periods, the lawsuit says.[BN]

O M NAMAH INC: Patel Seeks Unpaid Overtime Wages
------------------------------------------------
JAYA PATEL, individually and on behalf of persons similarly

MANEKLAL PATEL, an individual, and CHANDRIKA PATEL, an individual,
Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-04918 (N.D. Ill., July 22, 2019) is a
claim brought by Plaintiff for overtime compensation and other
relief under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Illinois Minimum
Wage Law, for Defendants' failure to pay overtime wages to
Plaintiff and other similarly situated employees for all time
worked in excess of 40 hours in individual work weeks.

The Defendants regularly required Jaya and many other O M Namah
employees at the Brookfield, Illinois location to work more than 40
hours per week. Indeed, Jaya regularly worked in excess of 70 hours
per week. The Defendants' unlawful compensation practices have had
the effect of denying Plaintiff and other similarly situated
employees their lawfully earned and living wages, says the
complaint.

Plaintiff Jaya began working for Defendants at their Brookfield,
Illinois location in or about September 2012 as a regular
employee.

O M Namah, Inc. is an Illinois corporation which owns and operates
a Dunkin' Donuts restaurant franchise located in Brookfield,
Illinois.[BN]

PATIENT FINANCIAL: Metsuyan Foods Asserts TCPA Breach
-----------------------------------------------------
METSUYAN FOODS INC. on behalf of itself and all other similarly
situated consumers Plaintiff, v. PATIENT FINANCIAL SERVICES LLC AND
BROOKDALE HEALTH SYSTEM, INC. Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-04226
(E.D. N.Y., July 22, 2019) seeks redress for the illegal practices
of Patient Financial Services LLC ("PFS") and Brookdale Health
System, Inc. ("Brookdale"), concerning their widespread, pervasive
and unlawful telemarketing campaign using automated dialing systems
in violation of the Telephone Communications Protection Act
("TCPA").

Using sophisticated data extraction programs to cull names and
telephone numbers of individuals, the Defendants amass telephone
numbers of individuals in an electronic database used to then place
unsolicited calls. The Defendants dump the extracted telephone
numbers into an automated dialing system and cause tens of
thousands of telephone calls to be placed every hour on their
behalf. In these "robocalls," the Defendants provide the consumer
with various one-time offers and opportunities.

The Defendants have initiated numerous automated telemarketing
calls utilizing prerecorded voice messages and have directed these
calls to cellular telephones and residential telephone lines. These
calls fail to identify the entity on whose behalf the call is being
placed. In each instance, the automated calls generated by
Defendants violate the TCPA and/or Section 399-p of New York's
General Business Law, says the complaint.

Plaintiff is a business entity that operates in the State of New
York.

Defendants PFS's principal place of business is located in Clifton,
New Jersey.[BN]

PFIZER INC: Class Certification Bid in Al Haj Labeling Suit Nixed
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the class action lawsuit styled as Karmel Al Haj, et al., the
Plaintiff, vs. Pfizer Inc., the Defendant, Case No.
1:17−cv−06730 (N.D. Ill.), the Hon. Judge Gary Feinerman
entered an order denying, without prejudice to renewal, Plaintiff's
motion for class certification.

On behalf of herself and a putative nationwide class, Karmel Al Haj
alleges in this diversity suit that Pfizer Inc. deceived consumers
by charging more for "Maximum Strength" Robitussin cough syrup than
for "Regular Strength" Robitussin even though the former had a
lower concentration of active ingredients than the latter.

In two prior opinions, the court dismissed another plaintiff's
claims for lack of personal jurisdiction and allowed Al Haj's
individual and putative class claims to proceed.  Pfizer now moves
for summary judgment, and Al Haj moves for class certification.

According to the docket entry made by the Clerk on July 16, 2019,
Defendant's summary judgment motion is denied, and Plaintiff's
class certification motion is denied without prejudice to renewal.
If Plaintiff wishes to pursue class certification, she shall file
her renewed class certification motion by July 30, 2019. The status
hearing set for July 22, 2019 was stricken and re−set for August
7, 2019 at 9:00 a.m.[CC]

POWER STOP: Luna Sues Over Biometric Data Retention
---------------------------------------------------
JOSE LUNA, individually and on behalf of others similarly situated
individuals, Plaintiff, v. POWER STOP, LLC, an Illinois limited
liability company, Defendant, Case No. 2019CH08545 (Circuit Ct.,
Cook Cty., Ill., July 22, 2019) is a class action complaint against
Defendant for its violation of the Illinois Biometric Privacy Act
("BIPA"), and to obtain redress for persons injured by their
conduct.

The Defendant implemented biometric scanning and time-tracking
devices and technology at its facilities to monitor and track its
employees', including Plaintiffs, time. Plaintiff was required to
scan his biometric information into Defendant's databases as a
requirement for employment and for managerial purposes. Plaintiff
relied on Defendant to not only provide a lawful and legally
compliant system, but to also disclose all material information
regarding the technology and system, including all relevant
retention, destruction, and dissemination policies. Defendant's
biometric timekeeping regime allows for and resulted in the
dissemination of Plaintiff and other Class member's biometrics to
third parties, including vendors for timekeeping, data storage, and
payroll purposes.

Prior to taking Plaintiffs biometrics, Defendant did not inform
Plaintiff in writing that his biometrics were being collected,
stored, used, or disseminated, or publish any policy specifically
about the collection, retention, use, deletion, or dissemination of
biometrics. The Defendant did not seek, and Plaintiff never
provided, any written consent relating to the collection, use,
storage, or dissemination of his biometrics. To this day, Plaintiff
is unaware of the status of his biometrics obtained by Defendant.
Defendant has not informed Plaintiff whether it still retains his
biometrics, and if it does, for how long they intend to retain such
information without his consent, says the complaint.

Plaintiff worked at one of Defendants' facilities in Illinois.

Defendant is an automobile brakes manufacturer and retailer,
dealing with the design, production, and distribution of its
products.[BN]

RAPID RESPONSE: Shelton Sues over Unauthorized Voice Calls

JAMES EVERETT SHELTON, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, vs. RAPID RESPONSE MONITORING
SERVICES INCORPORATED, a New York company, and FIVE DIAMOND
SECURITY, LLC, a Florida company, the Defendants, Case No.
0:19-cv-61787-XXXX (S.D. Fla., July 17, 2019), seeks to stop
Defendants from making unauthorized pre-recorded voice message
calls promoting the Defendant's home alarm services, and to obtain
redress for all persons similarly injured by its conduct.

Mr. Shelton and putative class members never consented to receive
these calls. Because telemarketing campaigns generally place calls
to hundreds of thousands or even millions of potential customers en
masse, Mr. Shelton brings this action on behalf of a proposed
nationwide class of other persons who received illegal
telemarketing calls from or on behalf of Five Diamond for
Defendants, the lawsuit says.

Rapid Response provides monitoring and security services. The
Company offers GPS and video monitoring, remote management, two-way

REALOGY HOLDINGS: Tanaskovic Sues over DOJ Probe, Share Price Drop
------------------------------------------------------------------
SASA TANASKOVIC, INDIVIDUALLY AND ON BEHALF OF ALL OTHERS SIMILARLY
SITUATED, the Plaintiff, vs. REALOGY HOLDINGS CORP., RICHARD A.
SMITH, RYAN M. SCHNEIDER, ANTHONY E. HULL, AND TIMOTHY  B.
GUSTAVSON, the Defendants, Case No. 2:19-cv-15053 (D.N.J., July 11,
2019), seeks to recover compensable damages caused by Defendants'
violations of federal securities laws.

The case is a federal securities class action on behalf of all
persons and entities, other than Defendants, who purchased the
securities of Realogy during the period of February 24, 2017
through May 22, 2019, inclusive.

On February 24, 2017, the Company filed its annual report on Form
10-K with the SEC for the year ending December 31, 2016. The 2016
10-K was signed by Defendants Smith, Hull, and Gustavson. Attached
to the 2016 10-K were certifications pursuant to the Sarbanes-Oxley
Act of 2002 signed by Defendants Smith and Hull attesting to the
disclosure of all fraud.

On April 18, 2019, Housingwire reported in an article "NAR slapped
with second class-action lawsuit to end buyer broker compensation".
On this news, shares of Realogy fell $0.57, or over 4.4%, to close
at $12.327 on April 22, 2019, damaging investors.

On May 22, 2019, media reports revealed that the U.S. Department of
Justice opened an investigation regarding antitrust practices of
the real estate industry, which included Realogy. That day,
Bloomberg published the article, "U.S. Opens Antitrust Probe of
Real Estate Brokerage Industry". On this news, shares of Realogy
fell $0.71, or over 9%, over the next two trading days to close at
$7.13 on May 23, 2019, further damaging investors.

Realogy, through its subsidiaries, provides real estate and
relocation services. The Company operates through four segments:
Real Estate Franchise Services, Company Owned Real Estate Brokerage
Services, Relocation Services, and title and Settlement
Services.[BN]

ROYAL POWER SOLUTIONS: Lopez Suit Asserts BIPA Violation
--------------------------------------------------------
RAMIRO LOPEZ, individually and on behalf of others similarly
situated individuals, Plaintiff, v. ROYAL POWER SOLUTIONS, LLC, a
Delaware limited liability company, Defendant, Case No. 2019CH08549
(Circuit Ct., Cook Cty., Ill., July 22, 2019) is a class action
complaint against Defendant for its violation of the Illinois
Biometric Privacy Act ("BIPA"), and to obtain redress for persons
injured by their conduct.

This case concerns the misuse of individuals' biometrics by
Defendant, a company that develops, manufactures, and sells
automotive and technological components, using
biometrically-enabled technology. Defendant is capturing,
collecting, disseminating, or otherwise using the biometrics of
Plaintiff and other Class members, without their informed written
consent as required by law, in order to track their employment and
work performance, says the complaint. The Defendant's biometric
managerial system works by extracting biometric information from
individuals, such as handprints, fingerprints or portions thereof,
and subsequently using the same for authentication and timekeeping
purposes. The system includes the dissemination of biometrics to
third parties, such as data storage vendors and payroll services.

Prior to taking Plaintiffs biometrics, Defendant did not inform
Plaintiff in writing that his biometrics were being collected,
stored, used, or disseminated, or publish any policy specifically
about the collection, retention, use, deletion, or dissemination of
biometrics. The Defendant did not seek, and Plaintiff never
provided, any written consent relating to the collection, use,
storage, or dissemination of his biometrics, adds the complaint.

Plaintiff worked at one of Defendants' facilities in Illinois.

Defendant is a self-proclaimed leader in the automotive,
electronic, and telecommunication industries dealing with the
design, production, and distribution of its products.[BN]

STARKIST CO: Administrative Fee Cap in Hendricks Raised by $618K
----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, PATRICK HENDRICKS, Plaintiff, v. STARKIST CO, et al.,
Defendants, Case No. 13-cv-00729-HSG (N.D. Cal.), Judge Haywood S.
Gilliam, Jr. of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District
of California granted KCC Class Action Services, LLC's motion for
an order increasing the administrative fee cap and authorizing
payment of fees.

KCC was appointed as settlement administrator in the action.
Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, KCC's fees for notice and
administration of the class action were capped at $675,000.  KCC
estimated that the actual costs of providing claims administration
services would be $671,996; the estimate was based on the estimated
receipt of 200,000 claims, and the assumption that 80,000 postcard
vouchers and 120,000 check payments would be issued.  The
"not-to-exceed" amount was contingent upon no significant change in
the scope of work.  

In fact, however, KCC received more than 2.5 million claims and now
anticipates that it will issue more than 900,000 cash awards by
electronic payment, more than 390,000 cash awards by check and more
than 790,000 vouchers by mail.  As a result, KCC's fees and costs
will exceed the cap by $618,308.  This constitutes a significant
change in the scope of work.  Because KCC incurred additional
reasonable costs and fees based on a significant change in the
scope of its administration services, it is entitled to payment of
those fees and costs.

For these reasons, Judge Gilliam granted KCC's Motion.  The
administrative fee cap is thus raised by $618,308, $468,308 of
which will be paid from the Cash Settlement Fund and $150,000 of
which will be paid from the uncashed checks fund.

TOTAL SYSTEM: Peters Challenges Global Payments Merger Deal
-----------------------------------------------------------
MICHAEL PETERS, Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, vs. TOTAL SYSTEM SERVICES, INC., M. TROY
WOODS, KRISS CLONINGER III, DR. SIDNEY E. HARRIS, RICHARD W.
USSERY, PHILIP W. TOMLINSON, MASON H. LAMPTON, JOHN T. TURNER,
WILLIAM M. ISAAC, RICHARD A. SMITH, CONNIE D. MCDANIEL, WALTER W.
DRIVER JR., F. THADDEUS ARROYO, and JOIA M. JOHNSON, the
Defendants, Case No. 4:19-cv-00114-CDL (M.D. Ga., July 18, 2019),
seeks to enjoin the Defendants from holding a shareholder vote on a
proposed merger transaction and taking any steps to consummate the
proposed transaction unless, and until, the material information is
disclosed to TSS shareholders sufficiently in advance of the vote
on the proposed transaction or, in the event the proposed
transaction is consummated, to recover damages resulting from the
Defendants' violations of the Exchange Act.

The action is brought as a class action by Plaintiff on behalf of
himself and the other public holders of the common stock of Total
System Services, Inc. against the Company and the members of the
Company's board of directors for their violations of Sections 14(a)
and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, in connection
with the proposed merger between TSS and Global Payments Inc.

On May 27, 2019, the Board caused the Company to enter into an
agreement and plan of merger, pursuant to which the Company's
shareholders stand to receive 0.8101 shares of Global Payments
stock for each share of TSS they own.

On July 3, 2019, in order to convince TSS shareholders to vote in
favor of the Proposed Transaction, the Board authorized the filing
of a materially incomplete and misleading Form S-4 Registration
Statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, in violation
of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act. The materially
incomplete and misleading S-4 violates both Regulation G (17 C.F.R.
section 244.100) and SEC Rule 14a-9 (17 C.F.R. section 240.14a-9),
each of which constitutes a violation of Section 14(a) and 20(a) of
the Exchange Act.

While touting the fairness of the Merger Consideration to the
Company's shareholders in the S-4, Defendants have failed to
disclose certain material information that is necessary for
shareholders to properly assess the fairness of the Proposed
Transaction, thereby violating SEC rules and regulations and
rendering certain statements in the S-4 materially incomplete and
misleading.

In particular, the S-4 contains materially incomplete and
misleading information concerning: (i) the financial projections
for the Company that were prepared by the Company and relied on by
Defendants in recommending that TSS shareholders vote in favor of
the Proposed Transaction; and (ii) the summary of certain valuation
analyses conducted by TSS's financial advisors, Greenhill & Co.,
LLC and Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC in support of their opinion that
the Merger Consideration is fair to shareholders, on which the
Board relied.

It is imperative that the material information that has been
omitted from the S-4 is disclosed prior to the forthcoming vote to
allow the Company's shareholders to make an informed decision
regarding the Proposed Transaction, the lawsuit says.

Total System is an American credit card processor, merchant
acquirer and bank credit card issuer. TSYS provides payment,
processing, merchant, and related payment services to financial and
nonfinancial institutions in the United States, Europe, Canada,
Mexico, and internationally.[BN]

Case No. 2:19-cv-06370 (C.D. Cal., July 23, 2019) is an action
brought pursuant to the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act
("FLSA"), to recover from Defendant unpaid overtime and other
compensation, interest thereon, liquidated damages, costs of suit,
and reasonable attorney fees.

This action arises from Defendant's failure to include all
statutorily required forms of compensation in the "regular rate"
used to calculate overtime compensation for Plaintiffs and all
similarly situated individuals, as well as Defendant's practice of
deducting "opt-out" fees from the wages paid to Plaintiffs and
similarly situated individuals. This action also arises from
Defendant's failure to pay wages to employees free and clear, as
required by the FLSA, by deducting "risk-sharing" fees from the
wages of Plaintiffs and similarly situated individuals who opted
out of medical coverage, says the complaint.

Plaintiffs ANTHONY SANDERS, SHAWN HOLZBERGER, JUSTIN DOERING,
ROBERT COUGHLIN, and VIRGINIA TINOCO are employed by the
Defendant.

COUNTY OF VENTURA, is a political subdivision of the State of
California.[BN]

Nick Sarnicola, Ashley Sarnicola, Blake Mallen, Ryan Blair, Todd
Goergen, Gary J. Reynolds, Vincent Owens, Kevin Merriweather, and
Michael Craig, to settle all individual and class claims that have,
or could have, been made, in the Plaintiffs' Third Amended
Complaint.

Judge Leitman, having reviewed the Motion and the exhibits,
including the written settlement agreement, finds himself apprised
of the issues and granted the Motion.  Accordingly,
he reliminarily approved the Agreement, between the parties,

Cash Option that terminates the Class Member's Independent Promoter

Plan ("FEIP"); and second, a Benefits Option which allows the Class
Member to retain all rights to receive or own Units under the FEIP,
and provides enhanced compensation, free services, and other
benefits.  The Class Members who submit no Valid Election Form
receive the Benefits Option.

Under the Agreement, each Cash Payment Eligible Settlement Class
Member who elects the Cash Option receives a cash payment of, for
Class Members who the first time reached the rank of National
Director, Executive Director or Presidential Director during the
time period that the FEIP was offered (Jan. 1, 2015 to March 1,
2017), $1,500, and for the Class Members who for the first time
reached the rank of Ambassador or higher, $4,000, with payment to
the Class Members in both categories subject to possible reduction
depending on the number of the Class Members choosing this option.

Under the Agreement, each Class Member who is not a Cash Payment
Eligible Settlement Class Member or who does not submit a Valid
Election Form will be deemed to have elected the Benefits Option
and receive all corresponding benefits, which includes these
benefits (besides any other benefits to which he or she may be
entitled as an IP):

subsequent sales) made to customers who purchase product from
ViSalus for the first time after the Effective Date (i.e., new
customers) for one year from the Effective Date;

     b. Free re-enrollment as an IP on the Basic enrollment track
(no purchase necessary) for one year from the Effective Date;

     c. Free event registration for one event, if any are held
within one year from the Effective Date, and if none are held
within one year, then free event registration for the next held
event, if held within 18 months from the Effective Date;

     d. Free Vi-Net Pro Subscription for: (i) one year from the
Effective Date for all the Settlement Class Members who choose the
free re-enrollment listed and who previously paid for Vi-Net Pro;
or (ii) six months from the Effective Date for all Settlement Class

previously pay for Vi-Net Pro.

benefits (besides any other benefits to which he or she may be

WESTERN STOCK: Rogers Seeks Minimum & Overtime Wages
----------------------------------------------------
SHAWN ROGERS, individually, and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiffs, vs. WESTERN STOCK SHOW ASSOCIATION; and
PAUL D. ANDREWS, individually, and in his official corporate
capacity, the Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-02068 (D. Colo., July
17, 2019), alleges that Defendants failed to pay Plaintiff and
other similarly-situated employees all earned minimum and overtime
wages under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The Defendants have violated the FLSA by engaging in the regular
practice of requiring the Plaintiff and the Collective Members to
perform labor each shift while not clocked in. This practice has
most commonly occurred, though not exclusively, when Plaintiff and
the Collective Members have nearied 40 hours worked in a given
workweek, the lawsuit says.

The Defendants own and operate an organization and venue in Denver
County that holds events such as rodeos, livestock auctions, the
National Western Stock Show, and other similar events.[BN]

WHIRLPOOL CORPORATION: O'Neill Sues Over Defective Drain Valves
---------------------------------------------------------------
MICHAEL O'NEILL, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. WHIRLPOOL CORPORATION, a Delaware
corporation, Defendant, Case No. 3:19-cv-04208 (N.D. Cal., July 22,
2019) is a class action arising under the Class Action Fairness Act
over the Defendant's defective Drain Valves.

In 2015, Whirlpool sold combination refrigerator-freezers featuring
a freezer Drain Valve buried deep within its components, out of
sight of and inaccessible to consumers without disassembling the
refrigerator. Defendant intended for the Drain Valves to channel
defrosted water from the freezer into a drain pan located at the
base of Class Refrigerators. However, the Drain Valves fail to
adequately drain the Class Refrigerators. As a result of their
design and manufacture, components of the Drain Valves--rubber
grommets that taper to a flat slit-opening resembling a duck's bill
("duckbill grommet")--become clogged, damming the flow of defrosted
water from the freezer. The trapped water then freezes, forming a
solid plug of ice. Over time, large amounts of ice and water
accumulate in the freezer, and water eventually leaks out of the
freezer to areas below and surrounding the refrigerator freezer.
Thus, the Drain Valves fail to perform their intended purpose.

The result of the Drain Valve defect is that Plaintiff and Class
Members are exposed to unexpected water leaks that span areas far
larger and with a higher volume of water than what people normally
encounter in kitchens such that the Drain Valves pose substantial
risks of physical injury to Class Members. Such risks include
slipping and falling and injuries to Class Members when they
attempt to make repairs themselves. In addition, the leaks damage
flooring, subflooring, grout, walls, cabinets, and other components
of Class Members' kitchens and homes. Defendant became aware of
these and other risks when they realized that the Drain Valves were
defective.

The Defendant had knowledge that their Drain Valves were defective
long before Plaintiff and other Class Members purchased their Class
Refrigerators. Despite their knowledge of the Drain Valve defects
prior to 2015, Defendant intentionally and continually installed
defective Drain Valves deep into the componentry of the Class
Refrigerators for years while intentionally and continually
concealing from Class Members the Drain Valves' existence, defects
and safety risks. The existence of the Drain Valve defect is a
material fact that reasonable consumers, including Plaintiff and
Class Members, would have considered when deciding whether to
purchase a refrigerator-freezer equipped with a Drain Valve. Had
Plaintiff and other Class Members known that the Class
Refrigerators were equipped with defective Drain Valves, they would
not have purchased said refrigerator-freezers or would have paid
less for them, says the complaint.

Plaintiff Michael O'Neill is a resident of the city of Rohnert Park
in Sonoma County, California.

Defendant designed, manufactured and sold combination
refrigerator-freezers equipped with defective drain valves
featuring a rubber grommet component with a "duckbill" shape
("Drain Valves").[BN]
