AKORN INC: Ruling on Plaintiff Counsel Fees under Appeal
--------------------------------------------------------
The case SHAUN HOUSE, On Behalf of Himself and All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, v. AKORN, INC., JOHN N. KAPOOR, KENNETH S.
ABRAMOWITZ, ADRIENNE L. GRAVES, RONALD M. JOHNSON, STEVEN J. MEYER,
TERRY A. RAPPUHN, BRIAN TAMBI, and ALAN WEINSTEIN, the Defendants,
Case No. 19-2408, is an appeal filed on July 24, 2019 by Plaintiff
to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit from
the Court's Memorandum Opinion and Order dated June 24, 2019, which
ordered Plaintiff's counsel to return the attorney's fees the
Defendants agreed to pay.

House et al sued Akorn and members of its board of directors
seeking certain disclosures regarding a proposed acquisition by
Frensenius Kabi AG. See 17 C 5018, R. 53 (House v. Akorn, Inc.,
2018 WL 4579781 (N.D. Ill. Sept. 25, 2018)); 17 C 5016, R. 81 (Berg
v. Akorn, Inc., 2017 WL 5593349 (N.D. Ill. Nov. 21, 2017)). After
Akorn revised its proxy statement and issued a Form 8-K, Plaintiffs
dismissed their lawsuits and settled for attorney's fees.

Shortly thereafter, Theodore Frank, an owner of 1,000 Akorn shares,
sought to intervene to object to the attorneys' fee settlement. The
Court eventually denied Frank's motion to intervene, but in light
of Frank's arguments, ordered Defendants to file a brief addressing
whether the Court should exercise its inherent authority to
abrogate the settlement agreements under the standard set forth In
re Walgreen Co. Stockholder Litigation, 832 F.3d 718, 725 (7th Cir.
2016).[BN]

CHESAPEAKE LODGING: Agrees to Resolve Kent Class Action
-------------------------------------------------------
Chesapeake Lodging Trust said in its Form 8-K filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission filed on September 3, 2019, that
the company and Park Hotels & Resorts Inc. agrees to resolve the
class action suit entitled, Kent v. Chesapeake Lodging Trust, et
al., No. 1:19-cv-01201 (D.Del.)

On May 5, 2019, Chesapeake's Board of Trustees caused the
Chesapeake to enter into an agreement and plan of merger with Park
Hotel & Resorts Inc., PK Domestic Property LLC, and PK Domestic Sub
LLC.

On September 2, 2019, Chesapeake Lodging Trust, a Maryland real
estate investment trust ("Chesapeake") and Park Hotels & Resorts
Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Park"), reached an agreement to
resolve two lawsuits on behalf of Chesapeake shareholders,
including a purported class action, filed in the United States
District Court for the District of Delaware.

The purported class action is captioned Kent v. Chesapeake Lodging
Trust, et al., No. 1:19-cv-01201 (D.Del.) (the "Kent Action"), and
the other action is Terlinden v. Chesapeake Lodging Trust, et al.,
No. 1:19-cv-01263 (D.Del) (the "Terlinden Action," and together
with the Kent Action, the "Actions").

The Actions challenge the proposed merger of Chesapeake with and
into a subsidiary of Park (the "Merger"), in particular the
adequacy of the disclosure found in the Preliminary Proxy
Statement/Prospectus forming a part of the Registration Statement
on Form S-4 filed by Park with the Securities and Exchange
Commission ("SEC") on June 14, 2019 (the "Preliminary Proxy
Statement/Prospectus").

In connection with resolution of the Actions, Chesapeake has agreed
to make an amended and supplemental disclosures (the "Amended and
Supplemental Disclosures") to the Definitive Proxy
Statement/Prospectus filed by Park with the SEC on July 25, 2019
(the "Definitive Proxy Statement/Prospectus"). The Amended and
Supplemental Disclosures should be read in conjunction with the
Definitive Proxy Statement/Prospectus, which should be read in its
entirety.

Plaintiffs have agreed that they will dismiss the Actions with
prejudice as to the named plaintiffs only and, with regard to the
Kent Action, without prejudice to the putative class.

A copy of the amended and supplemental disclosure is available at
https://bit.ly/2lFUiYQ.

Chesapeake Lodging Trust, incorporated on June 12, 2009, is a real
estate investment trust. The Company is focused on investments
primarily in upper-upscale hotels in various business and
convention markets and, on a selective basis, select-service hotels
in urban settings or other locations in the United States. The
Company operates through the hotel ownership segment. The company
is based in Arlington Virginia.


CLOUDERA INC: Still Defends 3 Securities Class Suit in California
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Cloudera, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on September 4, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended July 31, 2019, that the company continues to
defend three class securities class action suits in California.

On June 7, 2019, a purported class action complaint was filed in
the United States District Court for the Northern District of
California, entitled Christie v. Cloudera, Inc., et al., Case No.
5:19-cv-3221-LHK.  The complaint names as defendants Cloudera, its
former Chief Executive Officer, its Chief Financial Officer and a
former officer and director.

The action purports to assert claims on behalf of Cloudera
stockholders under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 and SEC Rule 10b-5.  

The complaint alleges that defendants made false and misleading
statements that artificially inflated the price of Cloudera stock
between April 28, 2017 and June 5, 2019.  

Two substantially similar class action complaints, entitled
Zarantonello v. Cloudera, Inc., et al., Case No. 3:19-cv-4007-MMC,
and Dvornic v. Cloudera, Inc., et al., Case No. 3:19-cv-4310-SI,
were subsequently filed against the same defendants in the same
court.  

The suits seek, among other things, an award of damages and
attorneys' fees and costs. Cloudera believes that the allegations
in the lawsuits are without merit.

Cloudera, Inc. provides platform for machine learning and analytics
in the United States, Europe, and Asia. The company operates
through two segments, Subscription and Services. Cloudera, Inc. was
founded in 2008 and is headquartered in Palo Alto, California.

CONDOR HOSPITALITY: NexPoint Merger Docs Omit Info, Sabatini Says
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The case, ERIC SABATINI, Individually and On Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, vs. CONDOR HOSPITALITY TRUST,
INC., J. WILLIAM BLACKHAM, DANIEL R. ELSZTAIN, DONALD J. LANDRY,
DAPHNE J. DUFRESNE, THOMAS CALAHAN, BRENDAN MACDONALD, BENJAMIN
WALL, NOAH DAVIS, MATIAS I. GAIVIRONSKY, NHT OPERATING PARTNERSHIP,
LLC, NHT REIT MERGER SUB, LLC, NHT OPERATING PARTNERSHIP II, LLC,
and CONDOR HOSPITALITY LIMITED PARTNERSHIP, the Defendants, Case
No. 1:19-cv-01564-UNA (D. Del., Aug. 23, 2019), stems from a
proposed transaction announced on July 22, 2019, pursuant to which
Condor Hospitality Trust, Inc. will be acquired by affiliates of
NexPoint Hospitality Trust.

On July 19, 2019, Condor's Board of Directors caused the Company to
enter into the Merger Agreement with NHT Operating Partnership,
LLC, NHT REIT Merger Sub, LLC, NHT Operating Partnership II, LLC,
and Condor Hospitality Limited Partnership. Pursuant to the terms
of the Merger Agreement, Condor's stockholders will receive $11.10
in cash for each share of Condor they own.

On August 9, 2019, defendants filed a proxy statement with the
United States Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with
the Proposed Transaction.

The Proxy Statement omits material information with respect to the
Proposed Transaction, which renders the Proxy Statement false and
misleading.

With respect to KeyBanc's Premiums Paid Analysis, the Proxy
Statement fails to disclose: (i) the transactions observed by
KeyBanc in the analysis; and (ii) the premiums paid in the
transactions.

The Proxy Statement also fails to disclose a fair summary of any
discounted cash flow analysis and net present value analysis
performed by KeyBanc. The disclosure of projected financial
information is material because it provides stockholders with a
basis to project the future financial performance of a company, and
allows stockholders to better understand the financial analyses
performed by the company's financial advisor in support of its
fairness opinion. Moreover, when a banker's endorsement of the
fairness of a transaction is touted to shareholders, the valuation
methods used to arrive at that opinion as well as the key inputs
and range of ultimate values generated by those analyses must also
be fairly disclosed.

The Proxy Statement also omits material information regarding
potential conflicts of interest of KeyBanc. The Proxy Statement
fails to disclose the timing and nature of the past services
KeyBanc provided to NexPoint and its affiliates. The Proxy
Statement also fails to disclose the timing and nature of all
communications regarding KeyBanc and/or its affiliates providing
acquisition financing to NexPoint and its affiliates in connection
with the Proposed Transaction.[BN]

CONDOR HOSPITALITY: Raul Challenges Proposed Sale to NexPoint
-------------------------------------------------------------
TAMMY RAUL, Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated v. CONDOR HOSPITALITY TRUST, INC., J. WILLIAM BLACKHAM,
DANIEL R. ELSZTAIN, DONALD J. LANDRY, DAPHNE J. DUFRESNE, THOMAS
CALAHAN, BRENDAN MACDONALD, BENJAMIN WALL, NOAH DAVIS, and MATIAS
I. GAIVIRONSKY, Case No. 1:19-cv-07968 (S.D.N.Y., Aug. 26, 2019),
alleges violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 in
connection with the proposed sale of the Company to NexPoint
Hospitality Trust.

On July 22, 2019, Condor entered into an Agreement and Plan of
Merger with NexPoint.  NexPoint is the operating partnership of
NexPoint Hospitality Trust, an unincorporated, open-ended real
estate investment trust established pursuant to a declaration of
trust under the laws of the Province of Ontario.  NexPoint, through
NHT, owns 55.6% of the Company's common stock and 100% of its
Series E Preferred Stock.  Pursuant to the terms of the Merger
Agreement, NexPoint will acquire all outstanding common shares of
Condor for $11.10 per share in an all-cash transaction valued at
approximately $318 million.

The Plaintiff, an owner of Condor common stock, alleges that in
order to convince Condor's stockholders to vote in favor of the
Proposed Transaction, the Board of Directors authorized the filing
of a materially incomplete and misleading preliminary proxy
statement with the SEC.  The Plaintiff contends that the Proxy
Statement contains financial projections prepared by Condor in
connection with the Proposed Transaction, but fails to provide
material information concerning such.

Condor is a Maryland corporation with its principal executive
offices located in Bethesda, Maryland.  The Individual Defendants
are directors and officers of the Company.

Condor is a real estate investment trust that specializes in the
ownership of premium-branded select-service, extended-stay, and
limited-service hotels in the upper-midscale and upscale segments
that are primarily located in the top 100 MSAs in the United
States.  The Company's new investment strategy hotels are
franchised under premium brands such as Hilton, Marriott, and IHG
and are operated by third-party management companies.[BN]

DAVID MARCUS: Ybarra Seeks Overtime Pay for Office Staff
--------------------------------------------------------
CECILIA YBARRA, an individual, the Plaintiff, vs. DAVID MARCUS MD,
INC., a California Corporation; DAVID MARCUS MD, an individual; and
DOES 1 through 20, inclusive, the Defendants, Case No. 19STCV29567
(Cal. Super, Aug. 21, 2019), alleges that Defendants failed to pay
minimum wages, failed to furnish wage and hour statements, failed
to provide meal and rest period compensation, failed to pay wages
in a timely manner, and failed to pay overtime compensation under
the California Labor Code.

The Plaintiff began working for Defendants on or about August 2017
as an office manager. From the beginning of her employment until on
or about December 2017 Plaintiff worked roughly 10-12 hours per
week.

During that time and thereafter, the Defendants commenced a
practice of failing and refusing to provide Plaintiff with the
compensation to which she was entitled under the Labor Code. The
Defendants further required that Plaintiff be available beyond the
40 hour work week to tend to any office or patient needs, the
lawsuit says.

The Plaintiff was responsible for answering phone calls to the
office, communicating with insurance companies and pharmacies
regarding patients that Defendants treated, helping patients fill
out various forms and questionnaires for the treating psychiatrist,
Dr. Marcus, and completing basic assistant tasks for Dr. Marcus,
such as running errands on his behalf and securing office
supplies.

Moreover, Defendants did not even compensate Plaintiff at her
regular rate of pay for all of her hours worked within the 40 hour
work week. While Plaintiff generally worked at least eight hours
per day, even on those days she did not work overtime, Defendants
only paid her for 20 hours of work per week, the lawsuit says.

The Defendants owned and/or operated a psychiatry practice.[BN]

FINISAR CORP: Ruling in Calif. Securities Class Suit under Appeal
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Finisar Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on September 4, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended July 28, 2019, that the plaintiffs have
filed a notice of appeal from a district court's denial of
plaintiffs' motion for class certification and grant of judgment on
the pleadings in favor of the company.

Several securities class action lawsuits related to the Company's
March 8, 2011 earnings announcement alleging claims under Sections
10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 have been
filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District
of California on behalf of a purported class of persons who
purchased stock between December 2, 2010 through March 8, 2011.

The named defendants are the Company and Jerry Rawls, its former
Chief Executive Officer and former Chairman of the Board, and Eitan
Gertel, its former Chief Executive Officer. To date, no specific
amount of damages has been alleged.

The cases were consolidated, a lead plaintiff was appointed and a
consolidated complaint was filed. The Company filed a motion to
dismiss the case.

On January 16, 2013, the District Court granted the Company's
motion to dismiss and granted the lead plaintiffs leave to amend
the consolidated complaint. An amended consolidated complaint was
filed on February 6, 2013.

Thereafter, the Company filed a renewed motion to dismiss the case.
On September 30, 2013, the District Court granted the Company's
motion and dismissed the case with prejudice, and plaintiff
appealed. On January 8, 2016, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals
reversed the judgment in part for further proceedings in the
District Court. On July 15, 2016, lead plaintiff filed a Second
Amended Complaint in the District Court.

On August 19, 2016, the Company moved to dismiss. On May 1, 2017,
the District Court denied the motion and a case scheduling order
has been issued. On December 5, 2017, the District Court issued an
order denying class certification. On February 1, 2018, the
plaintiff filed a petition with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals
for permission to appeal the denial of class certification and, on
July 13, 2018, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied the
petition for permission to appeal.

On October 10, 2018, the plaintiff filed a new motion for class
certification, which the Company opposed. On May 24, 2019, the
District Court denied plaintiffs motion for class certification and
granted judgement on the pleadings in favor of the Company and the
other defendants. The plaintiff filed a notice of appeal on June
20, 2019.

GEICO CASUALTY: Tenth Circuit Appeal Initiated in Pearson Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiffs Lonnie McRae and Roger Pearson filed an appeal from a
Court ruling entered in their lawsuit titled Pearson, et al. v.
Geico Casualty Company, Case No. 1:17-CV-02116-CMA-MEH, in the U.S.
District Court for the District of Colorado - Denver.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, the lawsuit
was filed on September 1, 2017, seeking an order enjoining GEICO
from continuing to engage in alleged deceptive practices.

The Plaintiffs allege that GEICO violated the Colorado's Consumer
Protection Act by, inter alia, failing to disclose material
information about the automobile insurance policies it provided to
the Plaintiffs and the Class Members under, i.e. by failing to
disclose GEICO did not, as a uniform business practice, pay title
and registration fees associated with a total vehicle loss.  As a
result of GEICO's deceptive business practices, the Plaintiffs and
the Class Members have suffered damage and lost money in that they
paid for insurance services they otherwise would not have had the
truth been disclosed.

GEICO Casualty Company provides property and casualty insurance.

The appellate case is captioned as Pearson, et al. v. Geico
Casualty Company, Case No. 19-1303, in the United States Court of
Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

JUUL LABS: Misrepresents Nicotine Content, Suit Claims
------------------------------------------------------
M.D. individually and as legal guardian of her minor grandchild,
M.E.D.; individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff v. JUUL LABS, INC.; ALTRIA GROUP, INC.; and
PHILIP MORRIS USA, INC., Defendants, Case No. 3:19cv180-GHD-RP
(N.D. Miss., Aug. 15, 2019) contends that despite making numerous
revisions to its packaging since 2015, the Defendants did not add
nicotine warnings until forced to do so in August of 2018. The
original JUUL product labels had a California Proposition 65
warning indicating that the product contains a substance known to
cause cancer, and a warning to keep JUULpods away from children and
pets, but contained no warnings specifically about the known
effects, or unknown long-term effects, of nicotine or
vaping/inhaling nicotine salts. Many of the Defendants'
advertisements, particularly prior to November 2017, also lacked a
nicotine warning.

Furthermore, the Defendants misrepresents the nicotine content of
JUULpods by representing it as 5% strength when the JUUL products
contain more by volume. The Defendants's "5% strength" statement
misrepresents the most material feature of its product -- the
nicotine content -- and has misled consumers to their detriment.

If the Defendants did not know when it released JUULpods in 2015
that its "5% strength" representation was misleading, it quickly
learned that there was widespread confusion about the pods'
nicotine content. The Defendants did nothing to stop or correct
this confusion about the nicotine content of its JUULpods. The
Defendants "5% strength" statement is also misleading because
JUULpods routinely contain more than even the 59mg/mL the Defendant
claims on its website. At least two independent studies testing
multiple varieties of JUULpods have found significantly higher
concentrations of nicotine than the Defendants' label represents.

KAMY INVESTMENTS: Fails to Pay Minimum or OT Wages, Marquis Says

Billy Marquis, Alexis Marquis, Anthony Marquis Individually and on

Trust, and Kamy Real Estate Trust, Case No. 4:19-cv-00626-RWS (E.D.
Tex., Aug. 27, 2019), alleges that the Defendants violated the Fair
Labor Standards Act by failing to pay the Plaintiffs either minimum
wages or overtime wages.

The Plaintiffs, who do maintenance and repairs on the Defendants'

contend that the Defendants not only violated the FLSA; they also
violated the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

The Sadeghians own over a thousand residential properties in Texas
and other states, and in their business they buy, sell and lease
those properties.  Mr. Sadeghian has complete and absolute control
over all their holdings.  He does business using several names

KOPELOWITZ OSTROW: Faces Suit over 1 Global Investment Fraud
------------------------------------------------------------
DAVID TAWECH; and RICHARD TYLER, individually and on behalf of all
others similarly situated, Plaintiff v. KOPELOWITZ OSTROW, P.A.;
and DALE LEDBETTER, Defendants, Case No. 2019L000927 (Ill. Cir.,
Dupage Cty., Aug. 15, 2019) is an action alleging that the
Defendants are engaged in a fraudulent investment scheme in
violation of the Illinois Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiffs and the class are all
clients of Goldstone Financial Group who breached their fiduciary
duties in recommending foolhardy investment scheme to 400 clients
who invested over $40,000,000 with 1 Global Capital LLC.

Goldstone was aided and abetted by the Defendants, who travelled
the country peddling the benefits of the investment scheme on
behalf of 1 Global and receiving undisclosed commissions.

The Defendants in their capacity as outside counsel for 1 Global
made representations in order to induce the Plaintiffs and the
class to invest in 1 Global.

On July 27, 2018, after being subpoenaed by the SEC, 1 Global and
its affiliates, filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11 in
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida. The
bankruptcy filings and company financials indicate 1 Global and its
affiliates made $348 million in merchant cash advances, with
merchants repaying about $241 million. 1 Global owes investors $272
million but only had $27.5 million in bank. The Securities and
Exchange Commission blames this huge shortfall on collectability
issues and 1 Global's misappropriation of investor funds. As such,
all investor funds are frozen with repayment of any principal or
interest in serious doubt.

The Plaintiffs and the class would not have invested in more than
$40 million if not for the Defendants' representations.

MDL 2919: Consolidation of Fuel Pump Cases v GM, Ford & FCA Sought
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiffs in nine class action lawsuits under In re: CP4
Defective Fuel Pump Litigation (MDL 2919), moved the Judicial Panel
on Multi-District Litigation on Aug. 21, 2019, for an order
transferring the actions, as well as any tag-along actions or other
cases that may be filed asserting related or similar claims, in an
industry-wide fashion to the Northern District of California or the
Eastern District of Michigan for consolidated or coordinated
pretrial proceedings.

Alternatively, the CP4 Plaintiffs move the Panel for an order
transferring the Related Actions into three separate Multi-District
Litigations ("MDLs") before the same judge -- against Ford, GM, and
FCA, respectively -- in the Northern District of California or the
Eastern District of Michigan for consolidated or coordinated
pretrial proceedings.

Two of the Related Actions are pending in the Northern District of
California -- one before the Honorable Jon S. Tigar (In re: General
Motors LLC CP4 Fuel Pump Litigation, No. 4:18-cv-07054-JST (N.D.
Cal.)), and one before the Honorable James Donato (Farlow v. Ford
Motor Co., No. 3:18-cv-06967-JD (N.D. Cal.)). Two of the Related
Actions are pending in the Eastern District of Michigan -- one
before the Honorable Terrence G. Berg (Chapman v. General Motors
LLC, 2:19-cv-12333-TGB (E.D. Mich.)), and one before the Honorable
Sean F. Cox (Droesser v. Ford Motor Co., 2:19-cv-12365-SFC (E.D.
Mich.)).

Ford, GM, and FCA have manufactured millions of diesel vehicles
equipped with high-pressure fuel injection pumps that are
proverbial ticking time bombs, wholly unbeknownst to unassuming
American consumers who pay top dollar for these vehicles'
fictitious "durability," "longevity," and "topnotch fuel economy."
The pump's inability to withstand U.S. diesel fuel allows metal to
rub against metal until the engine suddenly and cataclysmically
fails without warning, further contaminating the fuel delivery
system.

This "catastrophic" (i.e., complete and total) pump failure can
occur as early as "mile 0," as the pump disintegration process
begins at the very first fill of the tank, and starts damaging the
vehicle's fuel injection system and engine immediately upon the
vehicle's first use. This failure results in an outrageously
expensive repair bill, all for a repair that will not truly
ameliorate the issue so long as the vehicle is using U.S. diesel
fuel. Thus, the CP4 Plaintiffs and other Class members have
suffered from a defect that existed in the Affected Vehicles at the
time of purchase and are seeking economic recovery for this
manifested and immediately damaging defect, in addition to any and
all consequential damages stemming therefrom.

The nine class action lawsuits are:

General Motors LLC CP4 Fuel Pump Litigation, Case No.
4:18-cv-07054-JST (N.D. Cal.);

Farlow v. Ford Motor Co., Case No. 3:18-cv-06967-JD (N.D.

MEDICAL DATA: Stallworth Sues over Debt Collection Practices
------------------------------------------------------------
Clarence Stallworth, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, vs. Medical Data Systems, Inc.,
d/b/a, Medical Revenue Service, a Florida corporation, the
Defendant, Case No. 4:19-cv-02399 (E.D. Mo., Aug. 23, 2019),
alleges that Defendant's form debt collection letter violated the
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and seeks to recover damages.

According to the complaint, Medical Data Systems, Inc. is a debt
collector because it regularly uses the mails and/or the telephone
to collect, or attempt to collect, directly or indirectly,
defaulted consumer debts. MRS operates a nationwide defaulted debt
collection business and attempts to collect debts from consumers in
many states, including consumers in the State of Missouri.

In fact, MRS was acting as a debt collector as to the defaulted
consumer debt it attempted to collect from Plaintiff.

The Defendant sent Mr. Stallworth an initial form collection
letter, dated July 3,2019, demanding payment of defaulted consumer
debts that he allegedly owed to Missouri Baptist Medical Center for
services he had received.

The Plaintiff brings this action individually and as a class action
on behalf of all persons similarly situated in the State of
Missouri from whom Defendant attempted to collect a defaulted
consumer debt, via the same form collection letter, that Defendant
sent to Plaintiff, from one year before the date of this complaint
to the present, the lawsuit says.[BN]

PG CUTTING: Vega Seeks Minimum Wage for Machine Operators
---------------------------------------------------------
ARMANDO VEGA JR., the Plaintiff, vs. PG CUTTING SERVICES and DOES
1 to 25, inclusive, the Defendants, Case No. 19STCV29782 (Cal.
Super., Aug. 21, 2019), alleges that PG has committed numerous
labor code violations against Plaintiff and other similarly
situated aggrieved employees. The Plaintiff seeks damages in excess
of $25,000.

The Plaintiff started working for PG on or around April or May 2016
as an "operator" in operating machinery. During his employment
tenure at PG, Plaintiff was an hourly, non-exempt employee.
Plaintiff's employment with PG was terminated on or around November
19, 2018.

PG violated Labor Code section 1194, 1194.2, 1197, and 1197.1
because it failed to pay Plaintiff and other similarly situated
aggrieved employees California’s statutory minimum wage for all
hours worked and for "off the clock" work, including but not
limited to, the hours spent driving to job sites from the Lake
Elsinore or Downey yard.

The Plaintiff and others were on a work "What's App" group chat in

SAREPTA THERAPEUTICS: Salinger Sues over Drug Trial Reports
-----------------------------------------------------------
ANDREW SALINGER, Individually and On Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, the Plaintiff, vs. SAREPTA THERAPEUTICS, INC.,
DOUGLAS S. INGRAM, and SANDESH MAHATME, the Defendants, Case No.
1:19-cv-08122 (S.D.N.Y., Aug. 30, 2019), seeks to recover damages
caused by Defendants' violations of the federal securities laws and
to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934. The case is a federal securities class action
on behalf of a class consisting of all persons other than
Defendants who purchased or otherwise acquired Sarepta securities
between September 6, 2017 and August 19, 2019, both dates
inclusive.

Sarepta was founded in 1980 and is headquartered in Cambridge,
Massachusetts. Sarepta focuses on the discovery and development of
ribonucleic acid ("RNA")-based therapeutics, gene therapy, and
other genetic medicine approaches for the treatment of rare
diseases. Sarepta's products pipeline includes, among other drug
candidates, golodirsen for the treatment of duchenne muscular
dystrophy ("DMD").

Golodirsen purportedly binds to exon 53 of dystrophin pre-mRNA,
which results in exclusion or skipping of exon during mRNA
processing in patients with genetic mutations.

On September 6, 2017, pre-market, Sarepta announced positive muscle
biopsy results from its 4053-101 study, a Phase 1/2 first-in-human
study conducted in Europe to assess the safety, tolerability,
pharmacokinetics, and efficacy of golodirsen in 25 male subjects
with confirmed deletions of the DMD gene amenable to skipping exon
53 (the "4053-101 Study").
.
According to Sarepta, the 4053-101 Study comprised two parts. In
Part 1, twelve patients were randomized to receive a dose titration
of golodirsen (eight patients) or placebo (four patients). At the
end of Part 1 (dose titration), all twelve patients continued on
golodirsen and an additional thirteen patients started golodirsen
(Part 2). In Part 2, all twenty-five patients were treated for an
additional forty-eight weeks at the time of muscle biopsy. The
analysis included biopsies of the bicep muscle at baseline and
on-treatment at the Part 2 Week 48 time point.

On February 14, 2019, Sarepta announced that the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration's ("FDA") Division of Neurology (the "FDA Neurology
Division") had accepted the Company's New Drug Application ("NDA")
"seeking accelerated approval for golodirsen (SRP-4053) and
provided a regulatory action date of August 19, 2019." According to
Sarepta, the Company completed its NDA at the end of 2018 as part
of a rolling submission and requested priority review, which was
granted. Additionally, the NDA included data from the 4053-101
Study.

Throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and
misleading statements regarding Sarepta's business, operational and
compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or
misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i)
golodirsen posed significant safety risks to patients; (ii)
consequently, the NDA package for golodirsen's accelerated approval
was unlikely to receive FDA approval; and (iii) as a result,
Sarepta's public statements were materially false and misleading at
all relevant times.

On August 19, 2019, post-market, Sarepta announced receipt of a
Complete Response Letter ("CRL") from the FDA regarding the
Company's NDA seeking accelerated approval of golodirsen for the
treatment of DMD. Sarepta disclosed that "[t]he CRL generally cites
two concerns: the risk of infections related to intravenous
infusion ports and renal toxicity seen in pre-clinical models of
golodirsen and observed following administration of other antisense
oligonucleotides."

On this news, Sarepta's stock price fell $18.24 per share, or
15.16%, to close at $102.07 per share on August 20, 2019.

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

SEATTLE CITY LIGHT: Deien Sues over Incorrect Billing
-----------------------------------------------------
ANTHONY DEIEN, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, vs. SEATTLE CITY LIGHT, the Defendant,
Case No. 19-2-21999-8 SEA (Wash. Super., Aug. 21, 2019), alleges
that Seattle City Light has been incorrectly billing its customers
for years. The incorrect billing is caused by City Light's practice
of billing based on estimated electricity usage, instead of the
amount of electricity actually used by each customer. The Plaintiff
brings claims for breach of contract and the duty of good faith and
fair dealing, violation of the Washington Consumer Protection Act,
and violation of the statutes and regulations governing the conduct
of public service companies.

According to the complaint, Anthony Deien is just one of the many
City Light customers harmed by City Light's billing practices.

In April 2018, City Light sent Mr. Deien an electric bill for more
than $1,000. The bill was obviously wrong. Mr. Deien's prior
electric bills had never been more than a few hundred dollars. But
when Mr. Deien called to correct the problem, City Light's response
was that the bill was correct. City Light agreed to allow Mr. Deien
to pay the huge bill over time but added approximately $200 to
future bills as part of that payment plan.

The increased electric bills made the apartment Mr. Deien and his
sister shared unaffordable and forced them to move out when their
lease expired, instead of renewing the lease as they had planned.

City Light traditionally charged its customers based on the amount
of electricity used, measured in kilowatt hours, multiplied by its
published rates. City Light had approximately 50 employees
responsible for recording the readings on each customer's
electricity meter every two months so City Light could bill each
customer based on the electricity that customer used.

In approximately 2016, City Light attempted to cut costs by
transitioning to digital meter readers and a new software system
that was supposed to receive meter reads directly from the digital
readers. The software did not work as intended. City Light was
unable to record actual readings from its customers' meters on an
automated basis, and it no longer had enough employees to take
manual readings.

Rather than admit its mistakes and fix them, City Light tried to
cover them up by billing customers based on estimates of
electricity usage. City Light's estimated bills fail to comply with
Municipal Code requirements. Estimated bills are often wildly
inaccurate. When City Light tries to "true up" customers' bills
months or even years later, it sends customers bills that are five,
ten, or even thirty times the amounts of their prior bills. In the
process, City Light often charges customers for electricity they
did not use and charges higher rates than the rates authorized by
the municipal code, the lawsuit says.[BN]

STRAUS & ASSOCIATES: Spears Sues over Debt Collection Practices
---------------------------------------------------------------
CLAY SPEARS, individually and on behalf of all those similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, vs. STRAUS & ASSOCIATES P.A., the
Defendants, Case No. 0:19-cv-62187-XXXX (S.D. Fla., Aug. 31, 2019),
seeks to recover damages under the Fair Debt Collection Practices
Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.

The debt at issue is a financial obligation Plaintiff incurred
primarily for personal, family, or household purposes.

The Defendant is a business entity engaged in the business of
collecting consumer debts. The Defendant regularly collects or
attempts to collect, directly or indirectly, debts owed or due or
asserted to be owed or due another.

On a date better known by Defendant, it began attempting collect
the Consumer Debts from Plaintiff. The Defendant mailed a
collection letter, dated February 11, 2019, to Plaintiff in an
attempt to collect the Consumer Debt.

The Collection Letter is a communication from Defendant to
Plaintiff in connection with the collection of a debt.

The Collection Letter does not disclose that Defendant is a debt
collector and that, as a debt collector, it (Defendant) "is
attempting to collect a debt and that any information obtained will
be used for that purpose."

The Collection Letter is required to contain the disclosures
required by 15 U.S.C. Sec. 1692g(a)(1)-(5). The Collection Letter,
however, does not adequately inform the least sophisticated
consumer of, among other things, the rights he or she enjoys under
Sec. 1692g(a)(4) of the FDCPA.

The Defendant knew that, by mailing the Collection Letter to
Plaintiff, the Defendant was unlawfully seeking to collect the
Consumer Debt from Plaintiff in violation of section 1692g(a)(4)
and 1692e(11) of the FDCPA. Thus, by and through the Collection
Letter, as well as those letters the Defendant mailed to members of
the FCCPA Class, it violated Fla. Stat. 559.72(9).[BN]

SUNCOAST CREDIT: Loomis Balks at Multiple Insufficient Funds Fees
-----------------------------------------------------------------
DAVID LOOMIS, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff v. SUNCOAST CREDIT UNION, Defendant, Case No.
94258103 (Fla. Cir., Hillsborough Cty., Aug. 15, 2019) is an action
seeking monetary damages, restitution, and declaratory relief from
the Defendant, arising from the unfair and unconscionable
assessment and collection of multiple $29 "insufficient funds fees"
on the same items.

The Plaintiff alleges in the complaint that the Defendant
unlawfully assesses multiple "insufficient funds fees" ("NSF Fees")
on a single Automated Clearing House ("ACH") item or check.

Unbeknownst to consumers, each time the Defendant reprocesses an
ACH transaction or check for payment after it was initially
rejected for insufficient funds, the Defendant chooses to treat it
as a new and unique item or item that is subject to yet another NSF
Fee. But the Defendant's account documents never disclose that this
counterintuitive and deceptive result could occur and, in fact,
states the opposite.

The account documents indicate that only a single NSF Fee will be
charged per "item," however many times that item is reprocessed
with no request from the customer to do so. An electronic item
reprocessed after an initial return for insufficient funds,
especially through no action by the customer, cannot and does not
fairly become a new, unique item for fee assessment purposes.

This abusive practice is not universal in the financial services
industry. Indeed, major banks do not undertake the practice of
charging more than one NSF Fee on the same item when it is
reprocessed. Instead, major banks charges one NSF Fee even if an
item is reprocessed for payment multiple times.

The Defendant's account documents never disclose this practice. To
the contrary, the Defendant's account documents indicate it will
only charge a single NSF Fee on an item or per item.

Florida. The credit union formed in 1934 to originally serve

VERINT SYSTEMS: Mediation Ongoing in Class Suit Against Unit
------------------------------------------------------------
Verint Systems Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on September 4, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended July 31, 2019, that mediation is ongoing in
the class action suit in Tel Aviv against the company's subsidiary
Verint Systems Limited.

In March 2009, one of the company's former employees, Ms. Orit
Deutsch, commenced legal actions in Israel against the company's
primary Israeli subsidiary, Verint Systems Limited ("VSL") (Case
Number 4186/09) and against the company's affiliate Comverse
Technology, Inc. (CTI) (Case Number 1335/09).

Also in March 2009, a former employee of Comverse Limited (CTI's
primary Israeli subsidiary at the time), Ms Roni Katriel, commenced
similar legal actions in Israel against Comverse Limited (Case
Number 3444/09).

In these actions, the plaintiffs generally sought to certify class
action suits against the defendants on behalf of current and former
employees of VSL and Comverse Limited who had been granted stock
options in Verint and/or CTI and who were allegedly damaged as a
result of a suspension on option exercises during an extended
filing delay period that is discussed in our and CTI's historical
public filings.

On June 7, 2012, the Tel Aviv District Court, where the cases had
been filed or transferred, allowed the plaintiffs to consolidate
and amend their complaints against the three defendants: VSL, CTI,
and Comverse Limited.

On October 31, 2012, CTI distributed of all of the outstanding
shares of common stock of Comverse, Inc., its principal operating
subsidiary and parent company of Comverse Limited, to CTI's
shareholders (the "Comverse Share Distribution").

In the period leading up to the Comverse Share Distribution, CTI
either sold or transferred substantially all of its business
operations and assets (other than its equity ownership interests in
Verint and in its then-subsidiary, Comverse, Inc.) to Comverse,
Inc. or to unaffiliated third parties. As the result of these
transactions, Comverse, Inc. became an independent company and
ceased to be affiliated with CTI, and CTI ceased to have any
material assets other than its equity interests in Verint. Prior to
the completion of the Comverse Share Distribution, the plaintiffs
sought to compel CTI to set aside up to $150.0 million in assets to
secure any future judgment, but the District Court did not rule on
this motion. In February 2017, Mavenir Inc. became
successor-in-interest to Comverse, Inc.

On February 4, 2013, Verint acquired the remaining CTI shell
company in a merger transaction (the "CTI Merger"). As a result of
the CTI Merger, Verint assumed certain rights and liabilities of
CTI, including any liability of CTI arising out of the foregoing
legal actions.

However, under the terms of a Distribution Agreement entered into
in connection with the Comverse Share Distribution, the company, as
successor to CTI, are entitled to indemnification from Comverse,
Inc. (now Mavenir) for any losses the company may suffer in its
capacity as successor to CTI related to the foregoing legal
actions.

Following an unsuccessful mediation process, on August 28, 2016,
the District Court (i) denied the plaintiffs' motion to certify the
suit as a class action with respect to all claims relating to
Verint stock options and (ii) approved the plaintiffs' motion to
certify the suit as a class action with respect to claims of
current or former employees of Comverse Limited (now part of
Mavenir) or of VSL who held unexercised CTI stock options at the
time CTI suspended option exercises. The court also ruled that the
merits of the case would be evaluated under New York law.

As a result of this ruling (which excluded claims related to Verint
stock options from the case), one of the original plaintiffs in the
case, Ms. Deutsch, was replaced by a new representative plaintiff,
Mr. David Vaaknin. CTI appealed portions of the District Court’s
ruling to the Israeli Supreme Court.

On August 8, 2017, the Israeli Supreme Court partially allowed
CTI's appeal and ordered the case to be returned to the District
Court to determine whether a cause of action exists under New York
law based on the parties' expert opinions.

Following a second unsuccessful round of mediation in mid to late
2018, the proceedings resumed. The plaintiffs have filed a motion
to amend the class certification motion and CTI has filed a
corresponding motion to dismiss and a response.

At a hearing on April 16, 2019, the District Court suggested that
the parties consider another round of mediation, which is currently
in process.
