APPLE INC: Bartling Appeals N.D. California Ruling to 9th Circuit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Plaintiffs Anthony Bartling, et al., filed an appeal from a Court
ruling in their consolidated lawsuit entitled In re: APPLE
PROCESSOR LITIGATION, Case Nos. 5:18-cv-00147-EJD and
5:18-cv-00271-EJD, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of California, San Jose.

The appellate case is captioned as ANTHONY BARTLING; JACQUELINE N.
OLSON; ROBERT GIRALDI; JENNIFER ABRAMS, on behalf of themselves and
all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs-Appellants v. APPLE INC.,
Defendant-Appellee, Case No. 19-16720, in the United States Court
of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

As previously reported in the Class Action Reporter, Judge Edward
J. Davila granted the Defendant's motion to dismiss all claims
alleged in the Plaintiffs' Consolidated Amended Complaint with
leave to amend for the Plaintiffs' failure to allege Article III
standing.

In 2017, independent security researchers discovered an
industry-wide computer security vulnerability known as Spectre and
Meltdown that directly affected Apple's own processors within
devices such as iPhones, iPads, iPods, and the Apple TV.  In the
putative class action, Abrams and others similarly situated are
purchasers of such iDevices and allege that Apple's mitigation
efforts to patch the vulnerability within the iDevices
substantially slowed its processors, bringing a degradation in
value and damage to their property.  Federal subject matter
jurisdiction is based upon the Plaintiffs' claim under the
Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and the Class Action Fairness Act.

Plaintiffs Abrams, Anthony Bartling, Robert Giraldi, and Jacqueline
Olson purchased iDevices such as the iPad Pro, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s
Plus, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8 in recent years.

The Plaintiffs allege these two security vulnerabilities constitute
design defects in the Defendant's processors for iDevices.  In June
of 2017, Google's Project Zero disclosed the findings to ARM
Holdings PLC, a company that licenses central processing unit
architecture to several large companies.  ARM Holdings in turn
notified its licensees, including the Defendant, of the Defects.

The briefing schedule in the Appellate Case is set as follows:

   -- October 3, 2019 -- Transcript shall be ordered;

   -- November 4, 2019 -- Transcript shall be filed by court
      reporter;

   -- December 12, 2019 -- Appellant's opening brief and excerpts
      of record shall be served and filed pursuant to FRAP 31 and
      9th Cir. R. 31-2.1;

   -- January 13, 2020 -- Appellee's answering brief and excerpts
      of record shall be served and filed pursuant to FRAP 31 and
      9th Cir. R. 31-2.1; and

   -- The optional appellant's reply brief shall be filed and
      served within 21 days of service of the appellee's brief,
      pursuant to FRAP 31 and 9th Cir. R. 31-2.1.[BN]

ASTRAZENECA PHARMA: Sued over Price Fixing of Seroquel XR Drug
--------------------------------------------------------------
LAW ENFORCEMENT HEALTH BENEFITS INC., on behalf of itself and all
those similarly situated, the Plaintiff, vs. ASTRAZENECA
PHARMACEUTICALS L.P.; ASTRAZENECA L.P.; ASTRAZENECA UK LIMITED;
HANDA PHARMACEUTICALS, LLC; PAR PHARMACEUTICAL, INC., and ACCORD
PHARMACEUTICALS, INC., the Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-08296
(S.D.N.Y., Sept. 5, 2019), alleges that Defendants violated the
state antitrust and consumer protection laws concerning the
pharmaceutical drug Seroquel XR (quetiapine fumarate
extended-release tablets).

The Defendants violated state antitrust and consumer protection
laws, by entering into the anticompetitive agreements that
allocated markets, restricted output, and improperly maintained
AstraZeneca’s market and monopoly power by (1) delaying
competition from lower-priced generic Seroquel XR that would have
entered the market earlier; (2) delaying competition from
authorized generic Seroquel XR that would have entered the market
earlier; and (3) fixing, raising, and maintaining the prices of
Seroquel XR and its generic equivalents at supra-competitive
levels.

The U.S. sales for branded Seroquel XR exceeded $1 billion annually
for AstraZeneca prior to the introduction of generic competition.
Handa/Par and Accord recognized the huge market potential for
competing generic versions of Seroquel XR and each filed an
abbreviated new drug application with the FDA seeking approval to
market different strengths of generic Seroquel XR.

In response to the threat of generic competition, AstraZeneca filed
separate patent litigation against Handa/Par and Accord alleging
that their purported generic versions of Seroquel XR infringed upon
AstraZeneca’s patents over the drug. Rather than risk losing the
patent litigations and allowing generic versions of Seroquel XR to
reach the market, AstraZeneca induced Handa/Par and Accord to each
settle their respective patent litigation by entering into
anticompetitive agreements whereby (1) Handa/Par 1 and Accord
agreed not to compete in the market for Seroquel XR from
approximately September 29, 2011 until November 1, 2016, thereby
allocating the entire Seroquel XR market to AstraZeneca during this
roughly 5 year period; (2) AstraZeneca agreed not to compete in the
generic Seroquel XR market from roughly November 1, 2016 until May
1, 2017 thereby allocating the entire market for generic versions
of Seroquel XR to Handa/Par and Accord for this six month period;
and (3) AstraZeneca made a large unjustified reverse payment--
i.e., payments from the patent holder, AstraZeneca, to the alleged
infringers, Handa/Par and Accord, and Defendants had no
procompetitive justification or other legitimate explanation for
the payments.

AstraZeneca manufactures, fabricates, and processes drugs in
pharmaceutical preparations. The Company focuses on several
therapeutic areas such as cardiovascular and metabolic,
gastrointestinal, neuroscience, oncology, respiratory, and
infection.[BN]

BLUE COLLAR: Floyd Files Suit Over Unsolicited Facsimile Ads
------------------------------------------------------------
LOUIS FLOYD on behalf of himself and others similarly situated
Plaintiff, v. BLUE COLLAR PEOS and TREVOR DOYLE, Defendants, Case
No. 0:19-cv-02433 (D. Minn., Sept. 5, 2019) is an action brought to
enforce the consumer privacy provisions of the Telephone Consumer
Protection Act, a federal statute enacted in 1991 in response to
widespread public outrage about the proliferation of intrusive,
nuisance telemarketing practices.

In violation of the TCPA, the Defendants sent unsolicited facsimile
advertisements promoting construction insurance services to
putative class members, including the Mr. Floyd. Because
telemarketing campaigns generally place calls to hundreds of
thousands or even millions of potential customers en masse, Mr.
Floyd brings this action on behalf of a proposed nationwide class
of other persons who received illegal telemarketing calls from or
on behalf of Defendants, says the complaint.

Plaintiff is a natural person residing in California.

CARDINAL GLASS: Long Sues Over Missed Breaks, Missing Wages
-----------------------------------------------------------
RONALD LONG, on behalf of himself, all others similarly situated,
Plaintiff, v. CARDINAL GLASS INDUSTRIES, INC., a Minnesota
corporation; and DOES 1 through 50, inclusive, Defendants, Case No.
19CV354414 (Cal. Super. Ct., Santa Clara Cty., Sept. 9, 2019) is a
class and representative action to recover unpaid wages,
restitution and related relief.

Plaintiff brings this class and representative action against
Defendants for alleged violations of the Labor Code and Business
and Professions Code. Plaintiff alleges that Defendants have failed
to provide him and all other similarly situated individuals with
meal periods; failed to provide them with rest periods; failed to
pay them premium wages for missed meal and/or rest periods; failed
to pay them at least minimum wage for all hours worked; failed to
provide them with accurate written wage statements; and failed to
pay them all of their final wages following separation of
employment.

As a result of Defendants' policy, Plaintiff and the putative class
were regularly not provided with uninterrupted meal periods of at
least 30 minutes for each 5 hours worked because Plaintiff and the
putative class' meal periods were constantly interrupted to
complete work related tasks. Also, as a result of Defendants'
policy, Plaintiff and the putative class were regularly not
provided with uninterrupted rest periods of at least 10 minutes for
each 4 hours worked because Plaintiff and the putative class were
continuously repairing equipment that broke down, says the
complaint.

Plaintiff worked for Defendants as a non-exempt, hourly employee
from approximately July 2001 through March 2018.

CARDINAL GLASS INDUSTRIES, INC. is a Minnesota corporation doing
business in the State of California.[BN]

CONNECTICUT: Class of Inmates w/ HCV in Barfield ADA Suit Certified
-------------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, ROBERT BARFIELD, ET AL, Plaintiffs, v. ROLLIN COOK in
his official capacity as Commissioner of the Connecticut Department
of Correction, Defendant, Case No. 3:18-cv-1198 (MPS) (D. Conn.),
Judge Michael P. Shea of the U.S. District Court for the District
of Connecticut granted the Plaintiffs' motion for class
certification.

The Plaintiffs bring the putative class action lawsuit regarding
medical care for incarcerated people infected with Hepatitis C
against Cook in his official capacity as Commissioner of the
Connecticut Department of Correction ("CT DOC").  In 1997, CT DOC
and the University of Connecticut Health Center ("UCHC") entered
into a Memorandum of Agreement ("MOA") for the provision of health
care to offenders through Correctional Managed Health Care
("CMHC").  This MOA remained in place until July 1, 2018, when
Semple terminated the relationship between DOC and UCHC and brought
all health care functions "in house, to be controlled specifically
by the DOC."  It provided that CMHC would implement clinical
practice guidelines and Medicaid guidelines.

CMHC's policy governing the treatment of prisoners with HCV
("Policy G 2.04") was promulgated on Dec. 10, 2002, and revised on
May 30, 2005, Dec. 21, 2010, Feb. 1, 2012, July 31, 2013, June 30,
2015, and June 30, 2016.  The policy created a special board of
infectious disease experts who evaluate all requests for treatment
of the Hepatitis C infection in CT DOC facilities.  It also created
a Hepatitis C Utilization Review Board ("HepCURB") to review all
requests for treatment.  The policy details the steps that
physicians and the HepCURB should take when working with patients
who have HCV.

Policy G 2.04 provides that, "in general," HepCURB will follow the
specific recommendations of the AASLD and IDSA, which both
recommend immediate treatment with DAAs for all people with chronic
HCV; at the same time, the policy states that they will not
directly provide specific anti-viral drugs for Hepatitis C.  CT DOC
did not release any new guidelines for HCV treatment following the
July 1, 2018 decision by Semple to change the management of health
care services for DOC inmates.

The Plaintiffs allege that prioritization for the DAA treatment as
stated in Policy G 2.04, which places advanced HCV cases of hepatic
fibrosis and liver transplant candidates at the top of the line is
not in line with the standard of care as delaying treatment until a
patient is extremely sick has the perverse effect of withholding
treatment from the patients who could benefit from it most, because
the treatment is less effective for patients with the most advanced
stages of the disease.  They allege that even if the policy was
adequate, CT DOC does not follow the policy and, in practice,
delays treatment for virtually all prisoners with HCV (regardless
of disease progression) until the prisoner is released from prison
or dies.  The Plaintiffs further allege that the policy does not
address liver transplantation, the only cure for people with
decompensated cirrhosis, and does not address the need for liver
cancer screening, "which is standard medical practice once
individuals have progressed to advanced fibrosis or cirrhosis."

Following the Court's ruling on the Motion to Dismiss, the only
claim remaining is the Plaintiffs' claim for various forms of
injunctive relief against Cook in his official capacity for
deliberate indifference to medical needs in violation of the Eighth
Amendment under 42 U.S.C. Section 1983.

The Plaintiffs seek to certify a class of all current and future
prisoners in CT DOC custody who have been diagnosed, or will be
diagnosed, with chronic HCV.  They also seek an injunction ordering
Defendant to provide routine opt-out testing for all CT DOC
prisoners or otherwise identify all prisoners who are infected with
chronic HCV; to properly screen, evaluate, monitor, and stage CT
DOC prisoners with HCV; to modify the exclusions from HCV
treatment; to immediately provide direct-acting antiviral
medications to those with chronic HCV; and to provide liver
transplants where appropriate.

Judge Shea applies the relation back doctrine and rejects the
argument that Barfield's claims are moot.  Thus, the three named
Plaintiffs who have standing to seek DAAs -- Barfield, Knapp, and
Tatem -- may serve as the class representatives seeking such relief
on behalf of the class.  Moreover, because Barberi has standing to
seek a liver transplant, and there are no allegations or argument
suggesting that the claim is moot, he is eligible to serve as a
class representative seeking such relief on behalf of the class.

Next, the Judge finds that failure to exhaust does not defeat
claims by the putative class members at this stage of litigation.
Because the Defendant does not contest that Barfield and Barberi
have satisfied the PLRA's exhaustion requirement, the requirement
is satisfied as to all class members.

Finally, he finds that final injunctive relief respecting the class
as a whole is appropriate and Galvan v. Levine does not compel
denial of class certification.  Accordingly, thhe Judge finds that
the Plaintiffs have satisfied the requirements to certify a class
under Rule 23(b)(2).

For the reasons he discussed, Judge Shea granted the motion for
class certification to the extent set forth in his ruling.  He
certified the class of ll sentenced persons (1) who have been or
will be diagnosed with chronic Hepatitis C; (2) who are or will be
in the custody of the Connecticut Department of Corrections; and
(3) who have at least sixteen weeks remaining to serve on their
sentences.  Robert Barfield, John Knapp, Darnell Tatem, and Jason
Barberi are appointed as the class representatives, and Attorneys
Kenneth J Krayeske and DeVaughn L. Ward as the class counsel.

DAVITA INC: Perry Suit Asserts Harassment, Invasion of Privacy
---------------------------------------------------------------
CHRISTEN PERRY, BIANA FUKES, ANNA WILLMING and ROMAINE RUSNAK,

DAVITA, INC. d/b/a DAVITA DIALYSIS CENTER, SATELLITE DIALYSIS OF
GLENVIEW and MICHAEL KLUSMEYER, Case No. 2019CH10253 (Ill. Cir.,
Cook Cty., Sept. 4, 2019), seeks relief for the alleged chronic,
prolific, widespread, and pervasive invasion of privacy of women,
who worked for Satellite and/or DaVita at the dialysis center
located at 2601 Compass Road in Glenview, Illinois, and the grossly
negligent conduct that enabled the invasion to occur.

Before November 2018, Satellite owned and operated the dialysis
center located at 2601 Compass Road.  Since November 2018, DaVita
owned and operated the dialysis center located at 2601 Compass
Road.

During the relevant time period, in performing their jobs, the
Plaintiffs and members of the proposed Class were subjected to
sexually inappropriate and offensive harassing conduct by Michael
Klusmeyer that violated written policies of Satellite and DaVita,
including his conduct in targeting women, who worked at the
dialysis center and invading their privacy, by repeatedly placing a
motion-activated camera in the women's bathroom focused on the
toilet.

Satellite provides kidney dialysis services through outpatient
dialysis centers throughout the United States and within Cook
County, Illinois.  DaVita provides kidney dialysis services through
outpatient dialysis centers throughout the United States and within
Cook County, Illinois.

The Court will commence a hearing on January 3, 2020, at 10:00

DIAL 7: Satine Sues over New Jersey Rides Tolls Charges
-------------------------------------------------------
SHERRIE SATINE, individually and on behalf of herself and all
others similarly situated, the Plaintiff(s), vs. DIAL 7 CAR &
LIMOUSINE SERVICE INC., the Defendant, Case No. BER-L-006337-19
(N.J. Super., Sept. 5, 2019), asserts that Defendant's practice of
charging customers who purchase New Jersey Rides tolls for the
driver to return to New York is, among other things, an
unconscionable commercial practice.

The Plaintiff brings this class action individually and on behalf
of a putative class of persons and entities that purchased one or
more rides from Dial 7 between locations within the State of New
Jersey.

The rides that: (a) involve both a pick-up and drop-off of a
passenger within the State of New Jersey, and (b) do not include
any toll crossings into the State of New York while the passenger
is in the car, are referred to as "New Jersey Rides."

Plaintiff and the Class members purchased New Jersey Rides from
Dial 7 based on Dial 7's representations that it provides service
in New Jersey.

In fact, unbeknownst to Plaintiff, Dial 7 charges customers who
purchase New Jersey Rides tolls for the driver to return to New
York, despite the fact that the ride itself does not include any
toll crossings into New York.

Had Plaintiff been aware that she would be charged a toll for Dial
7's driver to return to New York following her New Jersey Rides,
she would never have used Dial 7's services.

Indeed, under the circumstances, no reasonable consumer travelling
between locations within New Jersey would use Dial 7's services,
the lawsuit says.

Dial 7 owns and operates the "oldest and largest car service in the
New York City area," with a fleet of over 600 vehicles.[BN]

DIEBOLD NIXDORF: Livonia Fund Hits Share Drop from Merger Mishap
----------------------------------------------------------------
City of Livonia Retiree Health and Disability Benefits Plan,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated,
Plaintiff, v. Diebold Nixdorf, Incorporated, Andreas W. Mattes,
Christopher A. Chapman and Juergen Wunram, Defendants, Case No.
19-cv-04698 (N.D. Ohio, August 20, 2019), seeks to recover
compensable damages caused by violations of the federal securities
laws and to pursue remedies under the Securities Exchange Act of
1934.

Diebold is an international financial and retail technology company
that specializes in the sale, manufacture, installation and service
of self-service transaction systems. In November 2015, Diebold
entered into a merger agreement with one of its primary
competitors, Germany's Wincor Nixdorf. Diebold failed to disclose
that it was suffering from massive inefficiencies created by the
acquisition, and that it worsened its competitive position by
failing to successfully integrate the two legacy sales forces and
disparate IT and inventory systems thus missing significant sales
opportunities and was suffering from tens of millions of dollars in
integration cost overruns.

City of Livonia Retiree Health and Disability Benefits Plan
purchased Diebold common stock and lost when its stock price
dropped after corrective disclosures.

situated, Plaintiff, v. FLORIDA PET RETAILERS, INC. AND POOCHES OF
PINES, INC. D/B/A PETLAND PEMBROKE PINES, Defendant, Case No.
0:19-cv-62239-WPD (S.D. Fla., Sept. 9, 2019) is a putative class
action under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, arising from

Plaintiff and Class Members, causing them injuries, including
invasion of their privacy, aggravation, annoyance, intrusion on
seclusion, trespass, and conversion. Through this action, Plaintiff
seeks injunctive relief to halt Defendants illegal conduct.
Plaintiff also seeks statutory damages on behalf of herself and
Class Members, and any other available legal or equitable remedies
resulting from the illegal actions of Defendants, says the
complaint.

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

GENERAL MOTORS: Burgeson Sues Over Defective Engine System
----------------------------------------------------------
JASMINE BURGESON, Plaintiff, v. GENERAL MOTORS LLC; and DOES 1
through 10, inclusive, Defendants, Case No. 19STCV31665 (Cal.
Super. Ct., Los Angeles Cty., Sept. 6, 2019) is an action seeking
to redress Defendant's violations of California consumer fraud
statutes, and also seeks recovery for Defendant's breach of express
warranty, breach of implied warranty, breach of the duty of good
faith and fair dealing, and common law fraud.

General Motors was engaged in the business of designing,
manufacturing, constructing, assembling, marketing, distributing,
and selling automobiles and other motor vehicles and motor vehicle
components in Los Angeles County. Plaintiff purchased a 2011
Chevrolet Silverado 2500, vehicle identification number
1GC1KXC82BF168277, which was manufactured and or distributed by
Defendant on January 9, 2011.

Plaintiff received an express written warranty including, a
3-year/36,000mile express bumper to bumper warranty, a
5-year/100,000mile powertrain warranty which, inter alia, covers
the engine and transmission, along with an extended warranty, for
the emissions. Defendant undertook to preserve or maintain the
utility or performance of the Vehicle or to provide compensation if
there is a failure in utility or performance for a specified period
of time. The warranty provided, in relevant part, that in the event
a defect developed with the Vehicle during the warranty period,
Plaintiff could deliver the Vehicle for repair services to
Defendant's representative and the Vehicle would be repaired.

During the warranty period, the Vehicle contained or developed
defects. Said defects substantially impair the use, value, or
safety of the Vehicle.

The complaint alleges that the Defendant committed fraud by
allowing the Vehicle to be sold to Plaintiff without disclosing
that the Vehicle contained defects within the engine, and
particularly its CP4 Fuel Pump, that can cause fuel pump failure
resulting in spread of tiny metal particles throughout the fuel
system, damaging the fuel system and engine. The CP4 high pressure
fuel pump is referred to as a "ticking time bomb" which cause
engine failures which eventually result in sudden and unexpected
stalling and/or loss of power while driving.

GM knew, or should have known, that the 2011-2016 Chevrolet
Silverado 2500 and 3500 and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 vehicles
experience fuel pump failure resulting in fuel system and engine
damage, says the complaint.[BN]

HEARST MAGAZINE: Sued Over Auto-Renewal of Service Subscriptions
----------------------------------------------------------------
FENELLA ARNOLD and KELLY NAKAI, individually and on behalf of all
others similarly situated, Plaintiffs, v. HEARST MAGAZINE MEDIA,
INC., a Delaware corporation; CDS GLOBAL, INC., an Iowa
corporation; and DOES 1-50, inclusive, Defendants, Case No.
37-2019-00047733-CU-BT-CTL (Cal. Super. Ct., San Diego Cty., Sept.
10, 2019) is a class action complaint alleging that Defendants
violated California law in connection with magazine marketing and
subscription programs.

Among other things, Hearst and CDS work together to enroll
consumers in automatic-renewal or continuous service subscriptions
without providing the "clear and conspicuous" disclosures mandated
by California law; post charges to consumers' credit or debit cards
for purported automatic renewal or continuous service subscriptions
without first obtaining the consumers' affirmative consent to an
agreement containing the requisite clear and conspicuous
disclosures; and solicit payment of money for goods that consumers
did not order by sending "invoices" for amounts that are not
actually owed. This course of conduct violates the California
Automatic Renewal Law, California's statutory prohibition on
soliciting payment for unordered goods or services by means of
false invoices, the Consumers Legal Remedies Act, and the Unfair
Competition Law, says the complaint.

Plaintiffs are individuals residing in San Diego County, California
who entered the Defendants' magazine subscriptions.

Hearst is one of the largest magazine publishers in the world.[BN]

HILLSTONE HEALTHCARE: Hudson, et al. Seek Reinstatement of Benefits
-------------------------------------------------------------------
TIA HUDSON, BRENDA L. BENICKER, and DEBORAH COLEMAN, On behalf of
themselves and other similarly situated participants, Plaintiffs,
v. HILLSTONE HEALTHCARE, INC., A/K/A HILLSTONE GROUP, CORNERSTONE
INNOVATIONS, INC. D/B/A DIVERSIFIED EMPLOYEE SOLUTIONS, INC., PAUL
BERGSTEN, MATT DAPORE, and STEVEN ODDO, Defendants, Case No.     
(S.D. Ohio, Sept. 6, 2019) brings claims for breach of fiduciary
duty and prohibited transactions under the Employee Retirement
Income Security Act of 1974 against Defendants.

Plaintiff Tia Hudson, in late 2018 and early 2019, after being
diagnosed with a brain tumor and incurring significant medical
expenses, discovered that the health coverage under the health care
plan sponsored by her employer(s) had been terminated due to
Defendants nonpayment of premiums, with no notice to her. Worse
yet, Hillstone Healthcare, Inc., through Cornerstone Innovations,
Inc., continued to deduct her employee contributions for health
benefits from Hudson's bi-weekly paycheck, even though the Plans'
coverage was terminated and even though Defendants were not
forwarding Plaintiffs' contributions to the plans. In addition,
Plaintiff began participating in the company sponsored 401k Plan in
approximately September 2017 when she became eligible to
participate in the Plan and authorized Defendants to withhold
retirement contributions to be deposited to her account. Upon
information and belief, Hillstone, through Cornerstone, has
retained all contributions and/or failed to segregate withholdings
in a timely manner, and failed to make any matching employer
contributions required under the Plan, and have refused to provide
Hudson with information about the retirement Plan.

Plaintiff Deborah Coleman, in 2018, after incurring substantial
medical bills, discovered that the health coverage under the health
care plans sponsored by her employer had been terminated due to
Defendants nonpayment of premiums, with no notice to her. Worse
yet, Hillstone Healthcare, Inc., through Cornerstone Innovations,
Inc., continued to deduct her employee contributions for health,
vision, dental, and life insurance benefits from Coleman's
bi-weekly paycheck, even though the Plan's coverage was terminated
and even though Defendants were not forwarding Plaintiffs'
contributions to the plans.

Plaintiff Brenda Benicker, after incurring substantial medical
expenses, learned that her coverage under the health care plan had
been terminated with no notice to her, due to Defendants' failure
to make the required premium payments. She also discovered that
dental, vision, life insurance, and disability insurance coverage
had been terminated for the same reasons. Despite several attempts
to notify Hillstone Healthcare, Inc. that the plans were terminated
and her dental and medical bills were not covered, Hillstone
Healthcare, Inc., through Cornerstone Innovations, Inc., continued
to deduct employee contribution for health, dental, vision, life,
and disability insurance from her bi-weekly paycheck, even though
the Plans' coverage was terminated and even though Defendants
stopped forwarding her deductions to the plans. Benicker resigned
from Hillstone Healthcare, Inc. in or around November of 2018
because Defendants continued to deduct employee contributions for
employee benefit plans despite the plans' coverage being terminated
and because Defendants failed to respond to her requests for
reimbursement.

Plaintiffs seek reinstatement of their wrongfully terminated
benefits, reimbursement for their wrongfully withheld employee
contributions deducted from their paychecks, and they seek to be
made whole for all losses incurred and benefits due based on the
termination of Plan coverage without notice, and the failure to
remit employee contributions under the Plans, says the complaint.

Plaintiffs were participants in a health and welfare plan sponsored
by their employer, Hillstone Healthcare, Inc.

Hillstone is the fiduciary and plan sponsor for the health benefits
plan, vision benefits plan, dental benefits plan, life insurance
plan, disability insurance plan and the defined contribution
retirement plan ("401K Plan") offered to its employees and in which
Plaintiffs participated (collectively, "Plans").[BN]

ILLINOIS: Donovan Sues DOH Over Medicaid Act Breach
---------------------------------------------------
CHARLES DONOVAN, JAMES DALY, BARBARA DICKMAN, JUNE DOUGLAS, BETTY
FLOYD, ELVIN GRIDER, DOLORES LAMPE, ELDON W. LANE, SHANE LUTHE,
GRACE IRENE PALMER, TINA REESE, REVA SCHNEIDER, and BARBARA WRIGHT,
Individually and as the representatives of a class of similarly
situated persons, Plaintiffs, v. Illinois Department of Healthcare
and Family Services, THERESA A. EAGLESON, in her official capacity
as Director of the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family
Services, and GRACE B. HOU, in her official capacity as Director of
the Illinois Department of Human Services ("DHS"), Defendants, Case
No. 1:19-cv-06020 (N.D. Ill., Sept. 9, 2019) is an action arising
under the Federal Medicaid Act and its implementing regulations,
and a suit brought against the Illinois Department of Healthcare
and Family Services for failure to timely process claims for
payment for medical care provided to Medicaid long term care
recipients.

The complaint alleges that rather than complying with the Court's
order to bring its payment processing procedures into compliance,
the State of Illinois arbitrarily and capriciously rejected or
delayed the admission documents of thousands of Illinois nursing
home residents, in an apparent attempt to avoid paying for care for
Medicaid approved beneficiaries. Furthermore, the State declared
that there is no method to appeal these admission rejections, in
violation of the Due Process rights of thousands of Illinois
nursing home residents. The named Plaintiffs are members of the
classes they seek to represent. The classes consist of Illinois
long term care residents, who were provided 24-hour skilled nursing
care and supportive living services, and who are insolvent and
entitled to receive Medicaid benefits pursuant to federal and state
law, the complaint notes.

Each named Plaintiff suffers from severe medical conditions which
require 24-hour medical care and which substantially interfere with
one or more life processes. The Illinois State Medicaid Plan
operates under the statutory authority of Title XIX of the Social
Security Act Medical Assistance Program. As a condition of
receiving federal funds, HFS is required to administer the Medicaid
program in the state of Illinois in compliance with the Federal
Medicaid Act and implementing regulations. HFS assigns certain
tasks associated with administering the Medicaid program in the
state of Illinois to DHS, says the complaint.

Plaintiffs are Illinois residents who have been approved for
Medicaid benefits and are residents of an Illinois nursing home.

Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services ("HFS") is an
Illinois state agency that provides Medicaid services to enrollees
in Illinois.[BN]

suit incurred and such further relief.

JUUL, partnering with Philip Morris, is a provider of e-cigarettes
and nicotine pods in the United States and abroad. They market
their products as safe, candy-like products that are attractive to
minors and nonsmokers, despite the fact that it contains more
potent doses of nicotine than cigarettes, making them particularly
addictive, and without disclosing any of the myriad problems that
are likely to occur from the use of the products, including
long-term nicotine addiction, increased risk of heart disease and
stroke, changes in brain functionality that lead to increased
susceptibility to anxiety, depression and other addictions,
decreased functionality of the endocrine system, heightened risk of
cancer and negative effects on fertility, says the complaint.

Market. Around the same time, Uber was positioning itself for its
own initial public offering and listing on the New York Stock
Exchange. The IPO documents omitted any facts concerning the
multitude of complaints that Lyft has received, lawsuits that have
been threatened and filed against Lyft, and regulatory
investigations of Lyft concerning or arising from sexual assault by
drivers and other similar misconduct by drivers or threats to
passenger safety, notes the complaint.

The IPO documents further misrepresented the sufficiency of Lyft's
internal controls and reporting procedures relating to driver
safety issues, the Company's processes and procedures concerning
background checks and approval of drivers, and the growing problem
of sexual assault and similar misconduct by drivers in the
rideshare industry in general, and specifically by Lyft drivers.
The IPO documents also falsely and misleadingly and reported by
passengers ofLyft regarding drivers persons using Lyft's platform.
The representations in the Registration Statement were materially
inaccurate, misleading, and/or incomplete because the Registration
Statement omitted and failed to disclose, among other things, that:
(1) Lyft fails to maintain an effective system of internal controls
and reporting procedures concerning driver safety issues; (2) Lyft
fails to perform adequate background checks of its drivers; (3)
sexual assault and similar driver safety issues have led to
thousands of complaints by Lyft' s customers and passengers, as
well as investigations by various government and municipal
agencies, and lawsuits against Lyft that were threatened or filed
even before the IPO; (4) Lyft's costs of defending, settling and/or
satisfying any adverse judgment that may be entered in the lawsuits
against Lyft arising from sexual assaults and similar driver safety
issues are reasonably likely to be material, and continue to
increase; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, Lyft's claimed
ridesharing market position and future growth prospects are
overstated, including in relation to Uber. Accordingly, the price
of the Company's shares was artificially and materially inflated at
the time of the Offering.

In the wake of the IPO, the Company's shares have sharply fallen
below the IPO price. In May 2019, Lyft announced its financial
results for the first quarter of2019. and reported an adjusted
per-share loss of$9.02. On September 5, 2019, Lyft stock closed at
$46.40 per share.

By this action, Plaintiff, on behalf of itself and the other Class
members, who also acquired the Company's shares pursuant or
traceable to the IPO, now seeks to obtain a recovery for the
damages suffered as a result of Defendants' violations of the
Securities Act, says the complaint.

Plaintiff Luis Toscano purchased shares of Lyft common stock that
were issued pursuant and traceable to the Registration Statement
and IPO and was damaged thereby.

Lyft is a transportation network company based in San Francisco,
California.[BN]

MARRIOTT INTERNATIONAL: Hall Sues Over Deceptive Hotel Room Pricing
-------------------------------------------------------------------
TODD HALL, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. MARRIOTT INTERNATIONAL, INC., a Delaware
corporation; Defendant, Case No. 3:19-cv-01715-H-AHG (S.D. Cal.,
Sept. 9, 2019) is an action against Defendant, alleging that
Defendant misleads consumers concerning the amounts they must pay
for rooms at their hotels.

For at least the last decade, Marriott has used an unlawful trade
practice called "drip pricing" in advertising its hotel rooms
whereby Marriott initially hides a portion of a hotel room's daily
rate from consumers. Plaintiff brings this action to force Marriott
to advertise up-front to consumers the true prices of its hotel
rooms, notes the complaint.

Plaintiff institutes this proceeding to stop Marriott from engaging
in the unlawful trade practices in connection with its offer and
sale of hotel rooms to consumers, including its practices of (1)
misleading consumers concerning the amounts they must pay for rooms
at their hotels, and (2) advertising hotel rooms without the intent
to supply them at advertised prices. Plaintiff seeks injunctive
relief to prevent Defendant from engaging in these and similar
unlawful trade practices, civil penalties to deter Defendant and
others similarly situated from engaging in these and similar
unlawful trade practices, and the payment of costs, attorney's
fees, and restitution based on the harm consumers have experienced
due to Defendant's conduct.

Plaintiff Todd Hall is a citizen of the State of California and
resides in Rancho Cucamonga, California and has stayed in various
Marriott hotels and resorts within the class period.

Marriott is a multinational hospitality company that owns, manages
and franchises a broad portfolio of hotels and lodging facilities
throughout the United States and abroad, including approximately 60

MSG NETWORKS: Gould Sues BOD for Breaches of Fiduciary Duty
-----------------------------------------------------------
JAMES R. GOULD, JR., on behalf of himself and all other similarly
situated stockholders of MSG NETWORKS INC., Plaintiff, v. MSG
NETWORKS INC. JAMES L. DOLAN, CHARLES F. DOLAN, PAUL J. DOLAN,
THOMAS C. DOLAN, QUENTIN F. DOLAN, KRISTIN A. DOLAN, BRIAN SWEENEY,
WILLIAM J. BELL, HANK J. RATNER, JOSEPH J. LHOTA, JOEL M. LITVIN,
and JOHN L. SYKES, Defendants, Case No. 2019-0718- (Del. Chancery
Ct., Sept. 6, 2019) is a class action complaint against the members
of the board of directors of MSGN brought by Plaintiff seeking to
remedy the MSGN Board's breaches of fiduciary duty.

One week after announcing poor earnings and with the Company's
stock trading at multi-year lows, MSGN announced a self-tender
offer for $250 million in value of Company stock. Through the
Self-Tender, up to 27% of the Company's public stockholders will be
cashed out of their investment while MSGN's controlling
stockholder--the Dolan Family--will meaningfully increase their
voting power and equity stake in the Company. On August 30, 2019,
MSG filed an offer to purchase and certain other tender
offer-related documentation (collectively, the "Tender Offer
Documents") with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and
commenced the Self-Tender. The Offer to Purchase reveals that while
not making a "recommendation" regarding whether stockholders should
tender their shares, the MSGN board of directors "has authorized
the Company to make the Offer."

The complaint alleges that the Tender Offer Documents omit a litany
of material information that is necessary for MSGN stockholders to
make an informed tender decision, including, among other things:
(1) whether the Dolan Family members and loyalists on the Board
participated in the decision to increase the size of MSGN's share
repurchase program1 and "authorize" the Self-Tender, (2) how the
range of prices to be paid in the Self-Tender (i.e., $15.00 to
$17.50 per share) was established, (3) a summary of any financial
analysis, including projections and Company/share valuations,
received by the Board and/or MSGN in connection with the decision
to authorize the Self-Tender, and (4) all ties or business
relationships between BofA Securities, Inc.--which served as MSGN's
dealer manager for the Self-Tender--on the one hand, and MSGN, the
Dolan Family or any of the Dolan Family's other companies and
business ventures on the other.

Without disclosure of this material information, MSGN stockholders
cannot adequately assess (i) the independence of the process
leading to the Board's decision to increase MSGN's share repurchase
program and to authorize the Self-Tender, or (ii) the financial
fairness of the Self-Tender. Moreover, MSGN stockholders are unable
to determine whether the Self-Tender is merely an opportunistic
attempt by the Dolan Family to take advantage of the severe--but
likely temporary--depression of MSGN's stock price by using Company
funds to cash out a significant number of the Company's minority
public stockholders and thus increase the Dolan Family's ownership
stake in MSGN, says the complaint.

Plaintiff is a stockholder of MSGN and has owned MSGN Class A
common stock at all material times alleged in this Complaint.

MSGN owns and operates regional sports and entertainment
networks.[BN]

NAVY FEDERAL CREDIT: Hawkins Sues Over TCPA Violation
-----------------------------------------------------
BEN HAWKINS, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. NAVY FEDERAL CREDIT UNION, Defendant, Case
No. 1:19-cv-01186-LMB-IDD (E.D. Va., Sept. 13, 2019) is a class
action against Defendant to secure redress for its sending of
numerous nonconsensual, autodialed text message calls to the
cellular telephone numbers of Plaintiff and others nationwide, in
violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

Plaintiff received these and hundreds of other unauthorized
autodialed texts messages on his cell phone from Defendant even
though Plaintiff does not have, and has never had, an account,
credit card, or debit card issued by NFCU. Indeed, Plaintiff has
never been a customer or member of NFCU, and NFCU did not have
Plaintiff's consent to send text messages to his cell phone. NFCU
caused hundreds of unsolicited, autodialed text message calls to be
made to Plaintiff's cell phone, causing Plaintiff aggravation and
inconvenience. Plaintiff files this class action complaint on
behalf of himself and others similarly situated, seeking relief
from NFCU's illegal calling practices, says the complaint.

NEKTAR THERAPEUTICS: Damiba Hits Share Price Drop
-------------------------------------------------
Philippe Damiba, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Nektar Therapeutics, Howard W. Robin and

PIE KINGZ: Shell Seeks Minimum Wages for Delivery Drivers
---------------------------------------------------------
JASON SHELL, On behalf of himself and those similarly situated, the
Plaintiffs, vs. PIE KINGZ, LLC, PIEKINGZII, INC., PIE KINGZ 3,
INC., PIEKINGZ 4, INC., MICHAEL J. VLASAK, and SEAN M. McEVOY, the
Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-02043 (N.D. Ohio., Sept. 5, 2019),
seeks to recover appropriate monetary, declaratory, and equitable
relief based on Defendants' willful failure to compensate him and
similarly situated individuals with minimum wages, as required by
the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Ohio Minimum Wage Fairness.

The Defendants employ delivery drivers who work dual jobs, one
inside the store completing non-tipped duties, and another on the
road completing deliveries and receiving tips. The deliver drivers'
inside job duties are not related to their tip-producing duties.

Defendants' delivery drivers drive their own automobiles to deliver
pizza and other food items to Defendants' customers. Instead of
reimbursing their delivery drivers for the reasonably approximate
costs of the business use of their vehicles, Defendants utilize a
flawed method to determine reimbursement rates that provide such an
unreasonably low rate beneath any reasonable approximation of the
expenses the drivers incur that the drivers' unreimbursed expenses
cause the drivers' wages to fall below the federal minimum wage
during some or all workweeks.

The Defendants together operate four Jet's Pizza franchise stores
in Middleburg Heights, Parma (Pearl Road and Broadview Road), and
Westlake, Ohio. All four stores are referred to as "the Westside
Cleveland area Jet's Pizza stores."[BN]

RCI HOSPITALITY: Hernandez Hits Unpaid Wages, Misclassification
---------------------------------------------------------------
AMY HERNANDEZ on Behalf of Herself and on Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, Plaintiff, v. RCI HOSPITALITY HOLDINGS, INC.;
XTC CABARET, INC. d/b/a XTC CABARET (AUSTIN); ERICK LAMKIM; AND
WAYNE FENLON, Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-00870-LY (W.D. Tex.,
Sept. 6, 2019) is an action brought as a Fair Labor Standard Act
collective action on behalf of all persons who were or are employed
by Defendants as exotic dancers at any time during the three years
prior to the commencement of this action to present.

The complaint alleges that Defendants required and/or permitted
Plaintiff to work as an exotic dancer at their adult entertainment
club but refused to compensate her at the applicable minimum wage.
In fact, 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 Plaintiff in the
form of "house fees" or "rental fee" as a prerequisite to do her
job for the benefit of the club. Plaintiff was also required to
divide her tips with Defendants' employees who do not customarily
receive tips outside of a valid tip pool. The Defendants
misclassify dancers, including Plaintiff, as independent
contractors so that they do not have to compensate them at the
federally mandated minimum wage rate. The Defendants' practice of
failing to pay employees wages violates the FLSA's minimum wage
provision, and Defendants' practice of charging house fees and
dividing tips also violates Federal Law because it impermissibly
passes the cost of doing business onto the employees of the club,
says the complaint.

Plaintiff was previously employed as an exotic dancer at
Defendants' adult entertainment club during the statutory time
period.

Defendants operate an adult entertainment club in Austin, Texas,
under the name of "XTC Cabaret (Austin)".[BN]

STAMPS.COM: Website not Accessible to Blind People, Diaz Says
-------------------------------------------------------------
EDWIN DIAZ, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated,
the Plaintiffs, vs. STAMPS.COM INC., the Defendant, Case No.
1:19-cv-08268 (S.D.N.Y., Sept. 5, 2019), alleges that Defendant
failed to design, construct, maintain, and operate its website to
be fully accessible to and independently usable by Plaintiff and
other blind or visually-impaired people. The Defendant's denial of
full and equal access to its website, and therefore denial of its
goods and services offered thereby, is a violation of Plaintiff's
rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The Plaintiff is a visually-impaired and legally blind person who
requires screen-reading software to read website content using his
computer. The Plaintiff uses the terms "blind" or
"visually-impaired" to refer to all people with visual impairments
who meet the legal definition of blindness in that they have a
visual acuity with correction of less than or equal to 20 x 200.
Some blind people who meet this definition have limited vision.
Others have no vision.

The Plaintiff seeks a permanent injunction to cause a change in
Defendant's corporate policies, practices, and procedures so that
Defendant's website will become and remain accessible to blind and
visually-impaired consumers.

Based on a 2010 U.S. Census Bureau report, approximately 8.1
million people in the United States are visually impaired,
including 2.0 million who are blind, and according to the American
Foundation for the Blind's 2015 report, approximately 400,000
visually impaired persons live in the State of New York.[BN]

TEXTRON INC: Pension Fund Sues over 11% Drop in Share Price
-----------------------------------------------------------
BUILDING TRADES PENSION FUND OF WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA, individually
and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Plaintiff v.
TEXTRON INC.; SCOTT C. DONNELLY; and FRANK T. CONNOR, Defendants,
Case No. 1:19-cv-07881 (S.D.N.Y., Aug. 22, 2019) is a class action
on behalf of all investors who purchased or otherwise acquired
Textron common stock between January 31, 2018 and October 17, 2018,
inclusive, seeking to pursue remedies under the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934.

According to the complaint, Textron is a global manufacturer and
distributor of small aircrafts and recreational vehicles. On March
6, 2017, Textron expanded its recreational vehicle business through
its $316 million acquisition of Arctic Cat Inc. ("Arctic Cat").
Upon the completion of this transaction, Arctic Cat became an
indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Textron.

Arctic Cat designs and manufactures a variety of recreational
vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles and snowmobiles. Arctic
Cat revenues are generated through sales to independent dealers.
When the deal closed in March 2017, Textron's Chief Executive
Officer Scott Donnelly stated that the "addition of Arctic Cat to
Textron Specialized Vehicles business instantly gives Textron a
deeper product line for customers, greater potential for
innovation, and introduces new sales opportunities for its
worldwide dealer network."

During the Class Period, Textron repeatedly touted Arctic Cat as an
important growth business for the Company, reassuring investors
about dealer demand, end market sales and earnings prospects for
its Arctic Cat products. At the same time, Defendants failed to
disclose that: (1) end market sales of Arctic Cat products were
slowing, resulting in a massive glut of old Arctic Cat inventory on
dealers' floors; (2) in order to clear out this old inventory, the
Company provided significant price discounts, which negatively
impacted Textron's earnings; and (3) as a result, Textron's
positive statements about Arctic Cat's business, operations, and
prospects lacked a reasonable basis.

The truth about Arctic Cat's inventory problems was revealed on
October 18, 2018, when Textron reported weak third quarter 2018
earnings and cut its full-year 2018 forecast. The Company blamed
the shortfall on heavy discounts issued by Textron to clear out old
inventory. Analysts immediately lowered their price targets on
Textron stock citing the inventory concerns at Arctic Cat.

On this news, Textron's stock fell $7.29 or 11.25%, to close at
$57.49 on October 18, 2018, erasing $1.8 billion from its market
capitalization.

Textron Inc. is a global, multi-industry company with operations in
aircraft, defense, industrial products, and finance. The Company's
products include airplanes, helicopters, weapons, and automotive
products. Textron's finance division offers asset based lending,
aviation, distribution, golf, and resort finance, as well as
structured capital. [BN]

THEVEGASPACKAGE.COM INC: Fisher Suit Asserts TCPA Breach
--------------------------------------------------------
NICK FISHER, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. THEVEGASPACKAGE.COM, INC., a Nevada
corporation, and DOUGLAS DOUGLAS, an individual, Defendants, Case
No. 2:19-cv-01613-JAD-VCF (D. Nev., Sept. 13, 2019) is a Class
Action Complaint against Defendants to: (1) stop Defendants'
practice of placing calls using an "automatic telephone dialing
system" ("ATDS") to the cellular telephones of consumers nationwide
without their prior express consent; and (2) obtain redress for all
persons injured by Defendants' conduct. Plaintiff also seeks an
award of statutory damages to the members of the Class, plus court
costs and reasonable attorneys' fees.

The complaint alleges that Defendants have violated, and continue
to violate, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and its
regulations by placing autodialed calls to cellphone subscribers
who have not given prior express consent to receiving such calls.
By making the telephone calls at issue in this Complaint,
Defendants caused Plaintiff and the members of the Class actual
harm and cognizable legal injury. This includes the aggravation and
nuisance and invasions of privacy that result from the receipt of
such calls as well as a loss of value realized for any monies that
consumers paid to their wireless carriers for the receipt of such
calls, says the complaint.

Plaintiff Fisher is a natural person and a citizen of the State of

TITLEMAX: Dougherty Files Suit Over Excessive Interest Rates
------------------------------------------------------------
CELINE DOUGHERTY, Individually and On Behalf of All Others
Similarly Situated, Plaintiff, v. TITLEMAX OF CALIFORNIA, INC.
d/b/a TITLEMAX, Defendant, Case No. 5:19-cv-01709 (C.D. Cal., Sept.
6, 2019) is a class action against Defendant for public injunctive
relief to protect the consuming public in California, including
potential customers of TitleMax, from the threat of future injury
in terms of an excessive interest rate, and to obtain recompense
for California consumers who take out personal loans from
Defendant.

According to the complaint, the Defendant TitleMax lends to
consumers, including to California consumers, who have limited
credit opportunities and provides funding to consumers subject to
loan terms that most consumers are unable to repay in full. The
result of this practice is that the vast majority of the loans made
by  TitleMax are essentially "interest only" loans and/or subject
to default and additional penalties. TitleMax's business model is
to charge usurious interest rates so that most consumers are locked
into loans they cannot afford to repay, and instead the consumers
end up repaying many times the face value of the loan without
significantly reducing the principal balance owed. TitleMax's
pernicious loan terms create a scenario where most consumers take
out a loan in times of emergency only to find later that the loan
is unable to be repaid within any reasonable time period. In many
cases, consumers are unable to simply avoid default. As the loans
progress, TitleMax reaps significant profits from its exorbitant
interest and fees, while consumers are unable to tangibly decrease
the principal balance. Once consumers fall into default, TitleMax
compounds its profits by adding default interest and penalties and
subsequently aggressively pursues collection efforts.

On February 4, 2019, Plaintiff, Ms. Dougherty, entered into an Loan
Agreement, Promissory Note and Security Agreement with Defendant,
which provided that Defendant would loan $2,600 to Ms. Delisle at
an APR of 181.67%. Ms. Dougherty had made several payments on the
loan since the loans' inception. Therefore, Plaintiff incurred
actual financial losses due to the exorbitant and unlawful interest
rates charged by TitleMax. After Ms. Dougherty's husband passed
away, she was unable to make the high interest payments. On August
29, 2019, TitleMax repossessed Ms. Dougherty's vehicle due to late
payments, says the complaint.

Plaintiff CELINE DOUGHERTY is an individual citizen and resident of
the County of San Bernardino, State of California.

TitleMax's primary business is offering short-term loans across the
nation to low income borrowers with extreme interest rates.[BN]

consumers, the Plaintiff, vs. TRANSWORLD SYSTEMS INC., the
Defendants, Case No. CAM-L-003544-19 (N.J. Sup., Sept. 5, 2019),
seeks to recover damages arising from Defendant's violation of the
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

The Plaintiff took out a private student loan for personal use. She
became delinquent on the private student loan, according to the
Defendant.

On Oct. 15, 2018, the Defendant sent a letter to Plaintiff to
collect the debt. The letter is false, deceptive and misleading,
according to the Plaintiff.

The letter listed the balance of $1,389.55 as due and owing. The
Defendant broke this down into principal balance of $1,111.64 and a
collection charge of $277.91.

Plaintiff's agreement with the original creditor does not allow for
interest to accrue, and Plaintiff's original creditor has not and
will not seek interest from the Plaintiff.[BN]

UNIV 45: Leon et al Seek Unpaid Wages & OT for Market Employees
---------------------------------------------------------------
BRIGIDO MERINO LEON, MAXIMO MARTINEZ RAMIREZ, and RICARDO RAMIREZ

the Plaintiffs, vs. UNIV 45 FRUIT & VEGETABLE CORP. (D/B/A

1:19-cv-08266 (S.D.N.Y., Sept. 5, 2019), seeks unpaid minimum and
overtime wages pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 and
New York Labor Law.

The Plaintiffs are former employees of Defendants which own,
operate, or control a market, located at 45 University Place, New
York, New York 10003 under the name "Epicurean Market."

The Plaintiffs were employed as flower arrangers, grill helpers and
cooks at the market. They worked for Defendants in excess of 40
hours per week, without appropriate minimum wage, overtime, and
spread of hour's compensation for the hours that they worked.

Rather, the Defendants failed to maintain accurate record-keeping
of the hours worked and failed to pay Plaintiffs appropriately for
any hours worked, either at the straight rate of pay or for any
additional overtime premium, the lawsuit says.[BN]

VILLAGE NATURAL: Hernandez Sues Over Unpaid Minimum, Overtime Wages
-------------------------------------------------------------------
MARTIN FLORES HERNANDEZ, individually and on behalf of others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. VILLAGE NATURAL RESTAURANT CORP.
(D/B/A VILLAGE NATURAL), LAI THUY QUACH, and LARRY CHUY (A.K.A. MR.
LARRY), Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-08378 (E.D. N.Y., Sept. 9,
2019) seeks unpaid minimum and overtime wages pursuant to the Fair
Labor Standards Act of 1938, and for violations of the N.Y. Labor
Law, and the "spread of hours" and overtime wage orders of the New
York Commissioner of Labor, including applicable liquidated
damages, interest, attorneys' fees and costs.

Plaintiff Flores worked for Defendants in excess of 40 hours per
week, without appropriate minimum wage, overtime, and spread of
hours compensation for the hours that he worked, says the
complaint. Defendants also failed to maintain accurate
recordkeeping of the hours worked and failed to pay Plaintiff
Flores appropriately for any hours worked, either at the straight
rate of pay or for any additional overtime premium; and failed to
pay Plaintiff the required "spread of hours" pay for any day in
which he had to work over 10 hours a day.

The complaint alleges that Defendants employed the policy and
practice of disguising Plaintiff's actual duties in payroll records
by designating him as a delivery worker instead of as a non-tipped
employee. This allowed Defendants to avoid paying Plaintiff at the
minimum wage rate and enabled them to pay him at the tip-credit
rate (which they still failed to do). In addition, Defendants
maintained a policy and practice of unlawfully appropriating
Plaintiff's and other tipped employees' tips and made unlawful
deductions from Plaintiff's and other tipped employees' wages, says
the complaint.

Plaintiff Flores was employed as a delivery worker at the
Defendants' restaurant.

Defendants own, operate, or control a restaurant, located at 64
Greenwich Ave., New York, New York 10011 under the name "Village
Natural".[BN]

                        Asbestos Litigation

ASBESTOS UPDATE: 6,335 Bendix Claims Still Pending at June 30
-------------------------------------------------------------
Garrett Motion Inc. disclosed in its Form 10-Q filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarterly period ended
June 30, 2019, that there are 6,335 unresolved asbestos claims
related to the Bendix legacy Honeywell business at June 30, 2019.

The Company also reported that within the six months ended June 30,
2019, there were 1,291 new claims filed and 1,165 claims resolved.

As previously reported, Garrett Motion Inc. became an independent
publicly-traded company on October 1, 2018 through a pro rata
distribution by Honeywell International Inc. of 100% of the
then-outstanding shares of Garrett to Honeywell's stockholders (the
"Spin-Off").

The Company states, "For the periods prior to the Spin-Off, these
Consolidated and Combined Interim Financial Statements reflect an
estimated liability for resolution of pending and future
asbestos-related and environmental liabilities primarily related to
the Bendix legacy Honeywell business, calculated as if we were
responsible for 100% of the Bendix asbestos-liability payments.
However, this recognition model differs from the recognition model
applied subsequent to the Spin-Off.  In periods subsequent to the
Spin-Off, the accounting for the majority of our asbestos-related
liability payments and accounts payable reflect the terms of the
Indemnification and Reimbursement Agreement with Honeywell entered
into on September 12, 2018, under which we are required to make
payments to Honeywell in amounts equal to 90% of Honeywell's
asbestos-related liability payments and accounts payable, primarily
related to the Bendix business in the United States, as well as
certain environmental-related liability payments and accounts
payable and non-United States asbestos-related liability payments
and accounts payable, in each case related to legacy elements of
the Business, including the legal costs of defending and resolving
such liabilities, less 90% of Honeywell's net insurance receipts
and, as may be applicable, certain other recoveries associated with
such liabilities.  The Indemnification and Reimbursement Agreement
provides that the agreement will terminate upon the earlier of (x)
December 31, 2048 or (y) December 31st of the third consecutive
year during which certain amounts owed to Honeywell during each
such year were less than US$25 million as converted into Euros in
accordance with the terms of the agreement."

ASBESTOS UPDATE: BNSF Accrues $308MM for PI Matters at June 30
--------------------------------------------------------------
Burlington Northern Santa Fe, LLC ("BNSF") has accrued US$308
million at June 30, 2019, for personal injury matters, which
include asbestos claims, according to the Company's Form 10-Q
filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for the
quarterly period ended June 30, 2019.

The Company states, "BNSF's personal injury liability includes the
cost of claims for employee work-related injuries, third-party
claims, and asbestos claims.  BNSF records a liability for asserted
and unasserted claims when the expected loss is both probable and
reasonably estimable.  Because of the uncertainty of the timing of
future payments, the liability is undiscounted.  Defense and
processing costs, which are recorded on an as-reported basis, are
not included in the recorded liability.  Expense accruals and
adjustments are classified as materials and other in the
Consolidated Statements of Income.

"Personal injury claims by BNSF Railway employees are subject to
the provisions of the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA)
rather than state workers' compensation laws.  Resolution of these
cases under the FELA's fault-based system requires either a finding
of fault by a jury or an out of court settlement.  Third-party
claims include claims by non-employees for compensatory damages and
may, from time to time, include requests for punitive damages or
treatment of the claim as a class action.

"BNSF estimates its personal injury liability claims and expense
using standard actuarial methodologies based on the covered
population, activity levels and trends in frequency and the costs
of covered injuries.  The Company monitors actual experience
against the forecasted number of claims to be received, the
forecasted number of claims closing with payment, and expected
claim payments and records adjustments as new events or changes in
estimates develop.

"BNSF is party to asbestos claims by employees and non-employees
who may have been exposed to asbestos.  Because of the relatively
finite exposed population, the Company has recorded an estimate for
the full amount of probable exposure.  This is determined through
an actuarial analysis based on estimates of the exposed population,
the number of claims likely to be filed, the number of claims that
will likely require payment, and the cost per claim.  Estimated
filing and dismissal rates and average cost per claim are
determined utilizing recent claim data and trends.

"The amount recorded by the Company for the personal injury
liability is based upon the best information currently available.
Because of the uncertainty surrounding the ultimate outcome of
personal injury claims, it is reasonably possible that future costs
to resolve these claims may be different from the recorded amounts.
The Company estimates that costs to resolve the liability may
range from approximately US$270 million to US$375 million.

"Although the final outcome of these personal injury matters cannot
be predicted with certainty, it is the opinion of BNSF that none of
these items, when finally resolved, will have a material adverse
effect on the Company's financial position or liquidity.  However,
the occurrence of a number of these items in the same period could
have a material adverse effect on the results of operations in a
particular quarter or fiscal year."

ASBESTOS UPDATE: CECONY Accrues $7MM Liability at June 30
---------------------------------------------------------
Consolidated Edison, Inc.'s subsidiary Consolidated Edison Company
of New York, Inc. (CECONY) had accrued liability of US$7 million
for asbestos suits at June 30, 2019, according to the Company's
Form 10-Q filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2019.

CECONY also deferred US$7 million as regulatory assets related to
asbestos suits at June 30, 2019.

A full-text copy of the Form 10-Q is available at
https://is.gd/xSgpkv


ASBESTOS UPDATE: Con Edison Accrues $8MM Liability at June 30
-------------------------------------------------------------
Consolidated Edison, Inc. had accrued liability of US$8 million for
asbestos suits at June 30, 2019, according to the Company's Form
10-Q filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for
the quarterly period ended June 30, 2019.  The Company also
deferred US$8 million as regulatory assets related to asbestos
suits at June 30, 2019.

The Company states: "Suits have been brought in New York State and
federal courts against the Utilities and many other defendants,
wherein a large number of plaintiffs sought large amounts of
compensatory and punitive damages for deaths and injuries allegedly
caused by exposure to asbestos at various premises of the
Utilities.  The suits that have been resolved, which are many, have
been resolved without any payment by the Utilities, or for amounts
that were not, in the aggregate, material to them.  The amounts
specified in all the remaining thousands of suits total billions of
dollars; however, the Utilities believe that these amounts are
greatly exaggerated, based on the disposition of previous claims.

"At June 30, 2019, Con Edison and CECONY have accrued their
estimated aggregate undiscounted potential liabilities for these
suits and additional suits that may be brought over the next 15
years as shown in the following table.  These estimates were based
upon a combination of modeling, historical data analysis and risk
factor assessment.  Courts have begun, and unless otherwise
determined on appeal may continue, to apply different standards for
determining liability in asbestos suits than the standard that
applied historically.  As a result, the Companies currently believe
that there is a reasonable possibility of an exposure to loss in
excess of the liability accrued for the suits.  The Companies are
unable to estimate the amount or range of such loss.

"In addition, certain current and former employees have claimed or
are claiming workers' compensation benefits based on alleged
disability from exposure to asbestos.  CECONY is permitted to defer
as regulatory assets (for subsequent recovery through rates) costs
incurred for its asbestos lawsuits and workers' compensation
claims."

ASBESTOS UPDATE: Crane Co. Had 28,851 Pending Claims at June 30

Crane Co. has 28,851 pending asbestos-related claims as of June 30,

June 30, 2019.

The Company states, "Of the 28,851 pending claims as of June 30,

approximately 100 claims were pending in Texas, approximately 300
claims were pending in Mississippi, and approximately 200 claims

ASBESTOS UPDATE: Curtiss-Wright Still Defends Suits at June 30
--------------------------------------------------------------
Curtiss-Wright Corporation disclosed in its Form 10-Q filing with
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarterly
period ended June 30, 2019, that to date, the Company has not been
found liable or paid any material sum of money in settlement in any
case.  

The Company states, "We have been named in pending lawsuits that
allege injury from exposure to asbestos.  To date, we have not been
found liable or paid any material sum of money in settlement in any
case.  We believe that the minimal use of asbestos in our past
operations as well as our acquired businesses and the relatively
non-friable condition of asbestos in our historical products make
it unlikely that we will face material liability in any asbestos
litigation, whether individually or in the aggregate.  We maintain
insurance coverage and indemnification agreements for these
potential liabilities and we believe adequate coverage exists to
cover any unanticipated asbestos liability."

ASBESTOS UPDATE: Diamond Offshore Still Faces Suits at June 30

asbestos-related lawsuits pending in Louisiana state courts,
according to the Company's Form 10-Q filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarterly period ended
June 30, 2019.

The Company states, "We are one of several unrelated defendants in
lawsuits filed in Louisiana state courts alleging that defendants
manufactured, distributed or utilized drilling mud containing
asbestos and, in our case, allowed such drilling mud to have been
utilized aboard our drilling rigs.  The plaintiffs seek, among
other things, an award of unspecified compensatory and punitive
damages.  The manufacture and use of asbestos-containing drilling
mud had already ceased before we acquired any of the drilling rigs
addressed in these lawsuits.  We believe that we are not liable for
the damages asserted in the lawsuits pursuant to the terms of our
1989 asset purchase agreement with Diamond M Corporation.  We are
unable to estimate our potential exposure, if any, to these
lawsuits at this time but do not believe that our ultimate
liability, if any, resulting from this litigation will have a
material effect on our consolidated financial condition, results of
operations or cash flows."

ASBESTOS UPDATE: Harsco Corp. Had 17,131 PI Suits at June 30
------------------------------------------------------------
Harsco Corporation disclosed in its Form 10-Q filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarterly period ended
June 30, 2019, that there were approximately 17,131 pending
asbestos personal injury actions filed against the Company at June
30, 2019.  

Harsco Corp. states, "The Company is named as one of many
defendants (approximately 90 or more in most cases) in legal
actions in the U.S. alleging personal injury from exposure to
airborne asbestos over the past several decades.  In their suits,
the plaintiffs have named as defendants, among others, many
manufacturers, distributors and installers of numerous types of
equipment or products that allegedly contained asbestos.

"The Company believes that the claims against it are without merit.
The Company has never been a producer, manufacturer or processor
of asbestos fibers.  Any asbestos-containing part of a Company
product used in the past was purchased from a supplier and the
asbestos encapsulated in other materials such that airborne
exposure, if it occurred, was not harmful and is not associated
with the types of injuries alleged in the pending actions.

"At June 30, 2019, there were approximately 17,131 pending asbestos
personal injury actions filed against the Company.  Of those
actions, approximately 16,582 were filed in the New York Supreme
Court (New York County), approximately 118 were filed in other New
York State Supreme Court Counties and approximately 431 were filed
in courts located in other states.

"The complaints in most of those actions generally follow a form
that contains a standard damages demand of US$20 million or US$25
million, regardless of the individual plaintiff's alleged medical
condition, and without identifying any specific Company product.

"At June 30, 2019, approximately 16,550 of the actions filed in New
York Supreme Court (New York County) were on the Deferred/Inactive
Docket created by the court in December 2002 for all pending and
future asbestos actions filed by persons who cannot demonstrate
that they have a malignant condition or discernible physical
impairment.  The remaining approximately 32 cases in New York
County are pending on the Active or In Extremis Docket created for
plaintiffs who can demonstrate a malignant condition or physical
impairment.

"The Company has liability insurance coverage under various primary
and excess policies that the Company believes will be available, if
necessary, to substantially cover any liability that might
ultimately be incurred in the asbestos actions.  The costs and
expenses of the asbestos actions are being paid by the Company's
insurers.

"In view of the persistence of asbestos litigation in the U.S., the
Company expects to continue to receive additional claims in the
future.  The Company intends to continue its practice of vigorously
defending these claims and cases.  At June 30, 2019, the Company
has obtained dismissal in approximately 28,200 cases by stipulation
or summary judgment prior to trial.

"It is not possible to predict the ultimate outcome of
asbestos-related actions in the U.S. due to the unpredictable
nature of this litigation, and no loss provision has been recorded
in the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements
because a loss contingency is not deemed probable or estimable.
Despite this uncertainty, and although results of operations and
cash flows for a given period could be adversely affected by
asbestos-related actions, the Company does not expect that any
costs that are reasonably possible to be incurred by the Company in
connection with asbestos litigation would have a material adverse
effect on the Company's financial condition, results of operations
or cash flows."

ASBESTOS UPDATE: ITT Still Obliged to Indemnify Xylem at June 30
----------------------------------------------------------------
Xylem Inc. disclosed in its Form 10-Q filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarterly period ended
June 30, 2019, that ITT Corporation (now ITT LLC) remains obligated
to indemnify the Company from liabilities associated with asbestos
matters.

The Company states, "From time to time claims may be asserted
against Xylem alleging injury caused by any of our products
resulting from asbestos exposure.  We believe there are numerous
legal defenses available for such claims and would defend ourselves
vigorously.  Pursuant to the Distribution Agreement among ITT
Corporation (now ITT LLC), Exelis and Xylem, ITT Corporation (now
ITT LLC) has an obligation to indemnify, defend and hold Xylem
harmless for asbestos product liability matters, including
settlements, judgments, and legal defense costs associated with all
pending and future claims that may arise from past sales of ITT's
legacy products.  We believe ITT Corporation (now ITT LLC) remains
a substantial entity with sufficient financial resources to honor
its obligations to us.

"As part of our 2011 spin-off from our former parent, ITT
Corporation (now ITT LLC), Exelis Inc. and Xylem will indemnify,
defend and hold harmless each of the other parties with respect to
such parties' assumed or retained liabilities under the
Distribution Agreement and breaches of the Distribution Agreement
or related spin agreements.  The former parent's indemnification
obligations include asserted and unasserted asbestos and silica
liability claims that relate to the presence or alleged presence of
asbestos or silica in products manufactured, repaired or sold prior
to October 31, 2011, the Distribution Date, subject to limited
exceptions with respect to certain employee claims, or in the
structure or material of any building or facility, subject to
exceptions with respect to employee claims relating to Xylem
buildings or facilities.  The indemnification associated with
pending and future asbestos claims does not expire.  Xylem has not
recorded a liability for material matters for which we expect to be
indemnified by the former parent or Exelis Inc. through the
Distribution Agreement and we are not aware of any claims or other
circumstances that would give rise to material payments from us
under such indemnifications.

"On May 29, 2015, Harris Inc. acquired Exelis.  As the parent of
Exelis, Harris Inc. is responsible for Exelis' indemnification
obligations under the Distribution Agreement."

ASBESTOS UPDATE: J&J Talc Bottle Contained Asbestos, Expert Says
----------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that an electron microscopist told a California
jury that his laboratory found asbestos in a bottle of Johnson &
Johnson baby powder owner by a woman who is alleging the company's
talc products gave her mesothelioma.

During the second week of the trial in Torrance, California,
plaintiff Carolyn Weirick called to the stand expert witness
William Longo, a material scientist and electron microscopist who
is the president of Georgia-based Materials Analytical Services.
Longo saw his methods attacked by J&J during opening statements of
the trial, which is the second in the case after a mistrial last
year.


ASBESTOS UPDATE: Magnetek Has $864,000 Liability at June 30
-----------------------------------------------------------
Columbus McKinnon Corporation's subsidiary, Magnetek, recorded
approximately US$864,000 for asbestos-related liability as of June
30, 2019, according to the Company's Form 10-Q filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarterly period ended
June 30, 2019.

The Company states, "Magnetek has been named, along with multiple
other defendants, in asbestos-related lawsuits associated with
business operations previously acquired but which are no longer
owned.  During Magnetek's ownership, none of the businesses
produced or sold asbestos-containing products.  For such claims,
Magnetek is uninsured and either contractually indemnified against
liability, or contractually obligated to defend and indemnify the
purchaser of these former business operations.  The Company
aggressively seeks dismissal from these proceedings.  Based on
actuarial information, the asbestos-related liability including
legal costs is estimated to be approximately US$864,000 which has
been reflected as a liability in the Condensed Consolidated Balance
Sheet at June 30, 2019."

ASBESTOS UPDATE: Navistar Continues to Defend Claims at July 31
---------------------------------------------------------------
Navistar International Corporation is still facing asbestos claims
related to its facilities and older vehicle models, according to
the Company's Form 10-Q filing with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission for the quarterly period ended July 31, 2019.

The Company states, "Along with other vehicle manufacturers, we
have been subject to an increased number of asbestos-related claims
in recent years.  In general, these claims relate to illnesses
alleged to have resulted from asbestos exposure from component
parts found in older vehicles, although some cases relate to the
alleged presence of asbestos in our facilities.  In these claims,
we are generally not the sole defendant, and the claims name as
defendants numerous manufacturers and suppliers of a wide variety
of products allegedly containing asbestos.

"We have strongly disputed these claims, and it has been our policy
to defend against them vigorously.  Historically, the actual
damages paid out to claimants have not been material in any year to
our financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.  It
is possible that the number of these claims will continue to grow,
and that the costs for resolving asbestos related claims could
become significant in the future."

ASBESTOS UPDATE: Owens-Illinois Defends 1,020 Suits at June 30
--------------------------------------------------------------
Owens-Illinois, Inc. had approximately 1,020 asbestos lawsuits
pending as of June 30, 2019, according to the Company's Form 10-Q
filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for the
quarterly period ended June 30, 2019.

The Company states, "From 1948 to 1958, one of the Company's former
business units commercially produced and sold approximately US$40
million of a high-temperature, calcium-silicate based pipe and
block insulation material containing asbestos.  The Company sold
its insulation business unit in April 1958.  The Company receives
claims from individuals alleging bodily injury and death as a
result of exposure to asbestos from this product ("Asbestos
Claims").  Some Asbestos Claims are brought as personal injury
lawsuits that typically allege various theories of liability,
including negligence, gross negligence and strict liability and
seek compensatory and, in some cases, punitive damages.

"Predominantly, however, Asbestos Claims are presented to the
Company under administrative claims-handling agreements, which the
Company has in place with many plaintiffs' counsel throughout the
country ("Administrative Claims").  Administrative Claims require
evaluation and negotiation regarding whether particular claimants
qualify under the criteria established by the related
claims-handling agreements.  The criteria for Administrative Claims
include verification of a compensable illness and a reasonable
probability of exposure to a product manufactured by the Company's
former business unit during its manufacturing period ending in
1958.  Plaintiffs' counsel present, and the Company negotiates,
Administrative Claims under these various agreements in differing
quantities, at different times, and under a variety of conditions.


"As of June 30, 2019, the Company had approximately 1,020 asbestos
lawsuits pending.  These pending lawsuits do not include an
estimate of potential Administrative Claims that may be presented
under a claims-handling agreement due to the uncertainties around
presentation timing, quantities, or qualification rates.  The
Company considers Administrative Claims to be filed and disposed
when they are accepted for payment."

ASBESTOS UPDATE: Rexnord Corp. Still Faces Stearns PI Lawsuits
--------------------------------------------------------------
Rexnord Corporation still faces multiple lawsuits relating to
personal injuries due to the alleged presence of asbestos in
certain brakes and clutches by the Company's Stearns division,
according to the Company's Form 10-Q filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission for the fiscal quarter ended
June 30, 2019.

The Company states, "Multiple lawsuits (with approximately 300
claimants) are pending in state or federal court in numerous
jurisdictions relating to alleged personal injuries due to the
alleged presence of asbestos in certain brakes and clutches
previously manufactured by the Company's Stearns division and/or
its predecessor owners.  Invensys and FMC, prior owners of the
Stearns business, have paid 100% of the costs to date related to
the Stearns lawsuits.

"In connection with its sale, Invensys plc ("Invensys") provided
the Company with indemnification against certain contingent
liabilities, including certain pre-closing environmental
liabilities.  The Company believes that, pursuant to such indemnity
obligations, Invensys is obligated to defend and indemnify the
Company with respect to the matters relating to the Ellsworth
Industrial Park Site and to various asbestos claims.  The indemnity
obligations relating to the matters are subject, together with
indemnity obligations relating to other matters, to an overall
dollar cap equal to the purchase price, which is an amount in
excess of US$900 million."

----------------------------------------------------------------
Roper Technologies, Inc., and its subsidiaries continue to be named
defendants along with numerous industrial companies in
asbestos-related litigation claims in certain U.S. states,
according to the Company's Form 10-Q filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarterly period ended
June 30, 2019.

The Company states, "No significant resources have been required by
Roper to respond to these cases and Roper believes it has valid
defenses to such claims and, if required, intends to defend them
vigorously.  Given the state of these claims, it is not possible to
determine the potential liability, if any."

ASBESTOS UPDATE: SPX Had $556.7MM Asbestos Liability at June 29
---------------------------------------------------------------
SPX Corporation recorded US$556.7 million for asbestos product
liability matters at June 29, 2019, according to the Company's Form
10-Q filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for
the quarterly period ended June 29, 2019.

The Company states, "Numerous claims, complaints and proceedings
arising in the ordinary course of business have been asserted or
are pending against us or certain of our subsidiaries
(collectively, "claims").  These claims relate to litigation
matters (e.g., class actions and contracts, intellectual property,
and competitive claims), environmental matters, product liability
matters (predominately associated with alleged exposure to
asbestos-containing materials), and other risk management matters
(e.g., general liability, automobile, and workers' compensation
claims).  Additionally, we may become subject to other claims of
which we are currently unaware, which may be significant, or the
claims of which we are aware may result in our incurring
significantly greater loss than we anticipate.  While we (and our
subsidiaries) maintain property, cargo, auto, product, general
liability, environmental, and directors' and officers' liability
insurance and have acquired rights under similar policies in
connection with acquisitions that we believe cover a significant
portion of these claims, this insurance may be insufficient or
unavailable (e.g., in the case of insurer insolvency) to protect us
against potential loss exposures.  Also, while we believe we are
entitled to indemnification from third parties for some of these
claims, these rights may be insufficient or unavailable to protect
us against potential loss exposures.

"Our recorded liabilities related to these matters totaled US$600.9
million (including US$556.7 million for asbestos product liability
matters) and US$631.7 million (including US$587.5 million for
asbestos product liability matters) at June 29, 2019 and December
31, 2018, respectively.  Of these amounts, US$573.2 million and
US$600.3 million are included in "Other long-term liabilities"
within our condensed consolidated balance sheets at June 29, 2019
and December 31, 2018, respectively, with the remainder included in
"Accrued expenses." The liabilities we record for these claims are
based on a number of assumptions, including historical claims and
payment experience and, with respect to asbestos claims, actuarial
estimates of the future period during which additional claims are
reasonably foreseeable.  While we base our assumptions on facts
currently known to us, they entail inherently subjective judgments
and uncertainties.  As a result, our current assumptions for
estimating these liabilities may not prove accurate, and we may be
required to adjust these liabilities in the future, which could
result in charges to earnings.  These variances relative to current
expectations could have a material impact on our financial position
and results of operations.

"We have recorded insurance recovery assets associated with the
asbestos product liability matters, with such amounts totaling
US$516.4 million and US$541.9 million at June 29, 2019 and December
31, 2018, respectively, and included in "Other assets" within our
condensed consolidated balance sheets.  These assets represent
amounts that we believe we are or will be entitled to recover under
agreements we have with insurance companies.  The assets we record
for these insurance recoveries are based on a number of
assumptions, including the continued solvency of the insurers, and
are subject to a variety of uncertainties.  Our current assumptions
for estimating these assets may not prove accurate, and we may be
required to adjust these assets in the future, which could result
in additional charges to earnings.  These variances relative to
current expectations could have a material impact on our financial
position and results of operations."
