ALTRIA GROUP: Klein Sues Over Share Price Drop
----------------------------------------------
GABBY KLEIN, Individually and On Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated, Plaintiff, v. ALTRIA GROUP, INC., HOWARD A. WILLARD III,
and WILLIAM F. GIFFORD, JR., Defendants, Case No.
2:19-cv-05579-JMA-AKT (E.D. N.Y., Oct. 2, 2019) is a federal
securities class action on behalf of a class consisting of all
persons other than Defendants who purchased or otherwise acquired
Altria securities between December 20, 2018 and September 24, 2019,
both dates inclusive, seeking 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 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, against the
Company and certain of its top officials.

On December 20, 2018, during pre-market hours, Altria issued a
press release announcing that it had signed and closed a $12.8
billion investment in JUUL Labs, Inc., the purported U.S. leader in
electronic vapor products, including e-cigarettes. According to the
December 2018 Press Release, the service agreements related to the
transaction would accelerate JUUL's mission to switch adult smokers
to e-vapor products. Altria's investment represented a 35% economic
interest in JUUL, valuing the company at $38 billion, with JUUL
purportedly remaining fully independent.

On September 25, 2019, Altria issued a press release announcing
that Philip Morris had called off discussions of its merger with
Altria due to scrutiny of the vaping industry and the Company's 35%
stake in market leader JUUL, which had announced the same day that
it was the subject of another federal investigation. JUUL also
announced its CEO would step down and the firm would stop all
advertising in the U.S. On this news, Altria's stock price fell an
additional $0.17 per share, or 0.42%, to close at $40.56 per share
on September 25, 2019--a total loss of $0.32 per share, or 0.78%,
since closing at $40.88 per share two trading days earlier on
September 23, 2019.

The Defendants made materially false and misleading statements
regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance
policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading
statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Altria had conducted
insufficient due diligence into JUUL prior to the Company's $12.8
billion investment, or 35% stake, in JUUL; (ii) Altria consequently
failed to inform investors, or account for, material risks
associated with JUUL's products and marketing practices, and the
true value of JUUL and its products; (iii) all of the foregoing, as
well as mounting public scrutiny, negative publicity, and
governmental pressure on e-vapor products and JUUL made it
reasonably likely that Altria's investment in JUUL would have a
material negative impact on the Company's reputation and
operations; and (iv) as a result, the Company's public statements
were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

The Defendants made materially false and misleading statements
regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance
policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading
statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Altria had conducted
insufficient due diligence into JUUL prior to the Company's $12.8
billion investment, or 35% stake, in JUUL; (ii) Altria consequently

reasonably likely that Altria's investment in JUUL would have a
material negative impact on the Company's reputation and
operations; and (iv) as a result, the Company's public statements
were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

Due to the Defendants' wrongful acts and omissions, and the
precipitous decline in the market value of the Company's
securities, Plaintiff and other Class members have suffered
significant losses and damages, says the complaint.

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

Altria, through its subsidiaries, manufactures and sells
cigarettes, smokeless products, and wine in the United States.[BN]

DOLAN CULLEN, and EMILY RYAN, individually and on behalf of all

and MARK NEUSTADT, Defendants, Case No. 2019CH10710 (Il. Cir., Cook
Cty., Sept. 16, 2019) is an action against the Defendants for
violating the City of Chicago Residential Landlord and Tenant
Ordinance ("RLTO").

The Plaintiffs allege that the Defendants failed to attach to the
Plaintiffs' written rental agreements a copy of the then current

to disclose in the Plaintiffs' written rental agreements the name

security deposits would be deposited in the manner required by
RLTO.

ASTRAZENECA: Sued over Anticompetitive Scheme for Seroquel XR
-------------------------------------------------------------
FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE, MIAMI LODGE 20, INSURANCE TRUST FUND, on
behalf of itself and all others similarly situated, the Plaintiff,
v. ASTRAZENECA PHARMACEUTICALS LP; ASTRAZENECA LP; ASTRAZENECA UK
LIMITED; HANDA PHARMACEUTICALS, LLC; and PAR PHARMACEUTICAL, INC.,
the Defendants, Case No. 1:19-cv-08712-CM (S.D.N.Y., Sept. 19,
2019), seeks to recover damages, including treble damages, under
the state antitrust and consumer protection laws.

The case arises from the Defendants' illegal scheme to delay
competition in the United States and its territories for Seroquel
XR, a prescription medication approved by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration for the treatment of: schizophrenia; acute
depressive episodes of bipolar disorder; acute manic or mixed
episodes of bipolar disorder in conjunction with other medications;
long-term bipolar disorder in conjunction with other medications;
and major depressive disorder in conjunction with other medications
for those patients who have not had an adequate response to
antidepressant medications.

Seroquel XR is a dopamine, serotonin, and adrenergic antagonist. As
such, it blocks the effects of these neurotransmitters in the
brain, resulting in a reduction of symptoms. In patients with
schizophrenia, antagonism of the 5-HT 2A serotonin receptor in the
frontal cortex of the brain relieves the negative symptoms while
antagonism of the D 2 dopamine receptor relieves negative symptoms.
As of 2016, it was the eighty-sixth most prescribed medication in
the United States, with more than 8 million prescriptions and
annual sales exceeding $1 billion.

Recognizing the huge market for this medication, in 2008, Handa
became the first drug manufacturer to file an Abbreviated New Drug
Application (ANDA) (No. 90-482) with the FDA seeking approval to
market the 50mg, 150mg, 200mg, and 300mg strengths of generic
extended-release quetiapine fumarate tablets, with Seroquel XR as
its Reference Listed Drug.

Accord Pharmaceuticals, Inc. became the first drug manufacturer to
file an ANDA (No. 90-681) for the 400mg strength of
extended-release quetiapine fumarate tablets, with Seroquel XR as
its Reference Listed Drug. Handa later filed an ANDA for the 400mg
strength of extended-release quetiapine fumarate.

The Plaintiff brings this action as an end-payor purchaser of
Seroquel XR, on its own behalf and on behalf of all similarly
situated end-payor purchasers. Defendants' unlawful conduct has
prevented generic extended-release quetiapine fumarate
manufacturers from entering the market with competing generic
products and has cost Plaintiff and end-payor purchasers hundreds
of millions of dollars in overcharge damages. [BN]

AT DAVIE LLC: Hill Suit Asserts TCPA Breach
-------------------------------------------
ADRIANA HILL, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. AT DAVIE LLC d/b/a AQUA-TOTS SWIM SCHOOLS
DAVIE, Defendant, Case No. 0:19-cv-62488-XXXX (S.D. Fla., Oct. 6,
2019) is a putative class action under the Telephone Consumer
Protection Act, arising from Defendant's violations of the TCPA.

To solicit new clients, Defendant engages in unsolicited marketing
with no regard for privacy rights of the recipients of those
messages, notes the complaint. Defendant caused thousands of
unsolicited text messages to be sent to the cellular telephones of
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
Defendant's 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
Defendant, says the complaint.

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

Defendant is an organization that specializes in the provision of
swimming instructions and/or coaching to children and young adults

AUTOZONE INC: Austin Sues over Gift Card Redemption
----------------------------------------------------
Ronald Austin, the Plaintiff, vs. AUTOZONE INC.; and DOES 1 through
10, inclusive, the Defendants, Case No. 19STCV33357 (Cal. Super.,
Sept. 16, 2019), alleges that Defendants failed to provide cash to
consumers wishing to redeem a gift card with a cash value less than
$10.00, or alternatively, failed to maintain a policy and/or
practice of complying with Civil Code section 1749.5(b)(2).

The lawsuit recounts that over a decade ago, the California
Legislature determined that gift cards were increasingly popular as
a means of gift-giving, but consumers were not able to redeem the
full value of the gift cards they received.

In reaction to this inequity, California State Senator Ellen M.
Corbett authored Senate Bill 250, stating that consumers with small
values on their gift cards often cannot buy anything sold by the
gift card seller with the remaining value on the card, and they
cannot get change for the value. Senator Corbett indicated that
consumers should be relieved from this.

parts and accessories, the largest in the United States. Founded in

BAUSCH HEALTH: Sued over Glumetza Generic Anticompetitive Scheme
----------------------------------------------------------------
CITY OF PROVIDENCE, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, the Plaintiff, vs. BAUSCH HEALTH COMPANIES
INC., SALIX PHARMACEUTICALS, LTD., SALIX PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.,
SANTARUS, INC., ASSERTIO THERAPEUTICS, INC., LUPIN PHARMACEUTICALS,
INC., LUPIN LTD., and PDL BIOPHARMA, INC., the Defendants, Case No.
3:19-cv-05831-WHA (N.D. Ga., Sept. 18, 2019), seeks damages and
equitable relief arising from the Defendants' anticompetitive
misconduct, which eliminated generic competition in the United
States for branded and generic versions of Glumetza (metformin
hydrochloride extended release). Glumetza is a drug used to treat
patients with Type 2 diabetes.

Prescription metformin has been available as a generic drug since
2002. Patients with Type 2 diabetes use metformin to prevent and
control high blood sugar, helping the body to properly respond to
its own naturally produced insulin. A person with Type 2 diabetes
who fails to control high blood sugar can develop very serious
disabilities, such as kidney damage, blindness, and loss of limbs
or sexual function.

Assertio developed an extended-release version of metformin that
can alleviate some of the drug's common side effects. Assertio
obtained several patents on the extended-release technology.

In 2005, Assertio received approval from the United States Food and
Drug Administration to sell, and began selling, extended-release
metformin, marketed under the brand name Glumetza, in two sizes:
500 mg and 1,000 mg. Extended-release mechanisms are 2 very common,
however, and Assertio's patents 1 were invalid and could be
designed around.

After Glumetza launched, its sales grew rapidly. As of 2016,
Valeant's U.S. sales of Glumetza exceeded $1.2 billion annually.

Because Glumetza was a blockbuster drug, several generic
manufacturers filed Abbreviated New Drug Applications with the FDA
seeking the approval of generic versions of Glumetza.

Specifically, at least Lupin, Sun Pharmaceuticals, and Watson
Pharmaceuticals filed ANDAs with the FDA concerning proposed
generic versions of Glumetza. Lupin was the first generic
manufacturer to file an ANDA concerning Glumetza, the lawsuit says

The Defendants allocated the market for Glumetza between them.
Assertio and Santarus held the entire market from February 2012
through February 2016, while Lupin exclusively held the generic
portion of the market from February 2016 through at least August
2016 (and in fact, until February 2017). Such an agreement
represents a blatant violation of antitrust law.

CAFEPRESS INC: Fus Sues Over Data Breach
----------------------------------------
MICHAL FUS, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. CAFEPRESS, INC., Defendant, Case No.
1:19-cv-06601 (N.D. Ill., Oct. 4, 2019) is a class action brought
on behalf of all natural persons victimized by the CafePress data
breach to redress the damage that they have suffered and to obtain
appropriate equitable relief to mitigate the risk that CafePress
will allow another breach in the future. Plaintiff and the
nationwide class he seeks to represent assert claims for
CafePress's negligence, negligence per se, and violations of state
consumer protection laws

Despite its guarantee, on October 2, 2019, CafePress notified its
customers that its online shopping website database had been hacked
nine months earlier in February of 2019. CafePress, therefore,
failed to protect Plaintiff's and its customers' personal
information, including their names, addresses, telephone numbers,
email addresses, passwords, the last four digits of credit cards,
credit card expiration dates, and, in some instances, social
security numbers and tax identification numbers.

Since the data breach occurred, CafePress customers have been
exposed to credit card theft and subjected to resulting economic
losses. Plaintiff has and will incur costs to mitigate the risk for
the data breach, such as paying for credit monitoring services.
Regardless of whether they have yet to incur out-of-pocket losses,
Plaintiff and all CafePress customers whose personal information
was stolen remain subject to a pervasive, substantial and imminent
risk of identity theft and fraud, says the complaint.

Plaintiff Michal Fus is a resident and citizen of the State of
Illinois (DuPage County) whose Personal Information was compromised
in the Defendant CafePress, Inc.'s data breach.

CafePress is heralded as the world's largest online gift shop,
carrying more than one billion products on its website, including
t-shirts, mugs, and bags that can be user-customized with logos and
other designs.[BN]

CALIBER HOME LOANS: Morgan Suit Asserts RESPA Breach
----------------------------------------------------
ROGERS MORGAN, and PATRICE L. JOHNSON, On behalf of themselves
individually and on behalf of a Class and Subclass of similarly
situated persons, Plaintiffs, v. CALIBER HOME LOANS, INC.,
Defendant, Case No. 8:19-cv-02797-PX (D. Md., Sept. 23, 2019) is a
class action filed pursuant to the Real Estate Settlement
Procedures Act.

The Plaintiffs allege that Caliber places its interest and pattern
of unsafe and unsound mortgage service practices above the remedial
rights of homeowners and consumers.  Moreover, Caliber unfairly and
deceptively ignores its statutory and contractual duties, including
those which were agreed to as part of their license to legally
operate in the State of Maryland and nationwide. These practices
are compounded when homeowners, like Johnson, Morgan, and the
putative class members, try in good faith to resolve their
situation and Caliber disregards its duty to conduct a reasonable
investigation of their notices of error and makes material
misstatements of law in reply which confirm the underlying claim in
this matter.

As a matter of standard policy and practice, Caliber disregards the
express requirements in the RESPA to cease furnishing or providing
adverse information to any consumer reporting agency regarding any
payments or sums demanded due that are subject of the Qualified
Written Requests/Notices of Error ("QWR/NOE") received from the
Plaintiffs and Class members for a period of sixty days, the
Plaintiffs contend.  The Plaintiffs add that Caliber simply
continues the disputed, adverse reporting with knowing and reckless
disregard to their rights. As a direct and proximate result of
Caliber's violations of the RESPA, the Plaintiffs and the class
members have been proximately harmed by Caliber's publishing of
derogatory information to the credit reporting agencies subject to
disputes regarding the borrower's payments and sums claimed due,
says the complaint.

Plaintiff Rogers Morgan is a natural person, who owns and resides
at 5904 Middleton Lane, in Temple Hills, Maryland. Plaintiff
Patrice Johnson is a natural person, who owns and resides at 4935
Coronado Court, in Waldorf, Maryland.

Caliber is a collector and a licensed mortgage servicer in the
State of Maryland.[BN]

CAPIO PARTNERS: Kambitsis Suit Says Collection Letter Time-Barred
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Sophia Kambitsis, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Capio Partners, LLC, Defendant, Case No.
19-cv-81277, (S.D. Fla., September 17, 2019), seeks redress for
violations of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act.

Capio Partners operates a debt collection agency. It attempted to
collect a debt for personal medical services owed by Kambitsis via
collection letter that did not state that collection of the debt
was time-barred and because of the age of the debt, the Defendant
could not and could not take any further collection action. [BN]

CIGNA HEALTHCARE: 11th Cir. Orders Accounting of Funds Paid to MCAG
-------------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, MANAGED CARE ADVISORY GROUP, LLC, Plaintiff-Appellee,
v. CIGNA HEALTHCARE, INC., Defendant-Appellant, EPIQ SYSTEMS, INC.,
DAVID GARCIA, NEIL MANNING, IMEDECS, MILLENNIUM HEALTHCARE
CONSULTING, INC., MARY FALBO, Interested Parties-Appellants, Case
No. 17-13761 (11th Cir.), the U.S. Court of Appeals for the
Eleventh Circuit reversed the judgment of the district court's
denial of CIGNA's motion to enforce a Settlement Agreement and
compel an accounting.

Medical providers filed several class action lawsuits against
managed care insurance companies, including CIGNA.  These actions
alleged that the insurers improperly processed and rejected certain
physicians' claims for payment.  The actions were consolidated into
Multidistrict Litigation ("MDL") before the U.S. District Court for
the Southern District of Florida.  The class and CIGNA reached a
settlement after extensive litigation and the district court
subsequently approved the parties' Settlement Agreement.

Following the settlement, Managed Care Advisory Group, LLC
("MCAG"), acting on behalf of the class members, entered into an
arbitration agreement with CIGNA in an attempt to resolve a dispute
over a portion of the settlement funds.  The Settlement Agreement
did not provide for arbitration and MCAG was not a party to it.
Instead, MCAG claimed to represent the class members who were
parties to the Settlement Agreement.  The arbitrator summonsed the
settlement claims administrator and independent review entities
("IREs") to appear for a live hearing and video conference and to
bring with them certain documents.

MCAG filed a motion to enforce the arbitral summonses in the
district court approximately three years after it had closed all
proceedings involving the MDL.  CIGNA responded to MCAG's motion to
enforce the arbitral summonses with a motion to strike the
summonses.

The district court referred the matter to a magistrate judge who
denied CIGNA's motion and granted MCAG's request to enforce the
summonses.  CIGNA and the summonsed parties appealed the magistrate
judge's decision to the district court and, at the district court's
suggestion, CIGNA filed a motion to enforce the settlement and
compel an accounting.

The district court affirmed the magistrate judge's decision,
enforcing the arbitral summonses, but denied CIGNA's motion to
enforce the Settlement Agreement and compel an accounting stating,
the Arbitrator will be allowed to arbitrate the claims in the
manner he sees fit.

CIGNA, Epiq, and IMEDECS appeal the district court order.  Epiq and
IMEDECS challenge the district court's order enforcing the arbitral
summonses.  CIGNA appeals the district court's denial of its motion
to enforce the Settlement Agreement and compel an accounting.

MCAG conceded during oral argument that: (1) it had not distributed
all of the funds CIGNA paid before the arbitration for claims that
were not the subject of the arbitration (despite MCAG's previous
assertion that it had distributed all of these funds); (2) it had
not distributed any of the settlement money paid by CIGNA for
Category Two claims since the arbitration commenced; and (3) only
approximately $4.5 million remains of the settlement proceeds CIGNA
paid to MCAG for class members' Category Two claims. Additionally,
MCAG conceded that it was obligated to pay the class members
shortly after receiving payment from CIGNA.

Before oral arguments, the Court issued a jurisdictional question
asking the parties to respond to two inquiries: (1) whether the
district court order enforcing the arbitration summonses was a
final order, particularly in light of the fact that the order
enforced summonses against third parties and is apparently a
post-judgment order; and (2) whether the district court's order
denying CIGNA's motion to enforce the Settlement Agreement and to
compel an accounting was final in light of the district court's
reasoning that CIGNA's claims would instead be handled by the
arbitrator.  CIGNA, Epiq, and IMEDECS responded that the orders
were final and appealable, while MCAG contended the orders were not
final and appealable.

The Eleventh Circuit finds that the district court retained
jurisdiction as to all matters relating to the interpretation,
administration, and consummation of the Agreement.  The motion to
enforce the Settlement Agreement and compel an accounting was
initiated because CIGNA paid approximately $25 million to MCAG for
the class members' claims submitted pursuant to the Settlement
Agreement.  

Based on the record before it, the Court finds that it does not
appear that the class members received a significant portion of the
funds to which they are entitled.  CIGNA paid MCAG approximately
$11 million prior to arbitration to distribute to the class members
for claims that were not the subject of the arbitration agreement
and $14 million during arbitration for Category Two claims.  CIGNA
paid these funds to MCAG solely for distribution to the class
members for their approved claims as required by the Settlement
Agreement.

The Court concludes that the litigation has been ongoing for almost
20 years, but it appears that most of the money CIGNA paid to MCAG
for the class members has not been distributed.  The district court
should require an expeditious accounting of all funds CIGNA
previously paid to MCAG for the benefit of the class members.  The
accounting should include any interest earned on the funds paid to
MCAG.

For these reasons, the Court reversed the judgment of the district
court, and remanded the case for further proceedings consistent
with its Opinion.

CLOROX COMPANY: Desouza Sues over Smart TubeTM Technology
---------------------------------------------------------
JORGE DESOUZA, the Plaintiff, vs. THE CLOROX COMPANY, the
Defendant, Case No. 19-2956 (Mass. Super., Sept. 19, 2019), seeks
to establish a class of similar Massachusetts consumers, enforce
injunctive relief, and recover monetary damages and attorneys' fees
under Mass. Gen. Laws.

Clorox is a provider of home cleaning products and expends
significant resources marketing these products to Massachusetts
consumers. As part of its goal to maintain its market share in
Massachusetts and across the country, Clorox dedicates extensive
effort to research and development of new and improved products.

As part of Clorox's nationwide campaign, Clorox developed what it
coined Smart TubeTM Technology. This Smart Tube technology is
marketed as "revolutionary" and "the result of five years of
product development" including "technology covered by eight
proprietary patents".

The new design promised to provide "superior value and performance
with an innovative trigger bottle design". Unfortunately, this
Smart TubeTM Technology proved to be less than effective, instead
causing Clorox bottles to leak, and in some cases, even causing
consumers physical injury.

One such product that utilized Clorox's Smart TubeTM Technology is
Clorox Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner ANijwith Smart TubeTM
Technology.

According to the lawsuit, Clorox's shoddy design and manufacture of
products utilizing Smart TubeTM Technology caused the Plaintiff and
the putative class to suffer both physical and monetary injuries.
Specifically, Plaintiff, as a house cleaner, suffered physical
injury to his left eye after the Product fell, split open, and
splashed bleach into his eye. The examples across the internet
evidence both the numerosity of the class and the knowledge Clorox
has had regarding this apparent defect.

Clorox sells its products primarily through mass merchandisers,
grocery stores, and other retail outlets. Clorox markets some of
consumers' most trusted and recognized brand names, including
Clorox Bleach, to consumers throughout the United States, including
tens of thousands of consumers in the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts.[BN]

CORTEVA INC: Moon Files Suit Asserting ERISA Violation
------------------------------------------------------
M.P. MOON, individually and as representative of a class of
participants and beneficiaries in and on behalf of the DuPont
Pension and Retirement Plan, Plaintiff, v. Corteva, Inc., Dupont De
Nemours, Inc., U.S. Dupont Pension And Retirement Plan, The Ad-
ministrative Committee, E. I. Du Pont De Nemours And Company and
the Dupont Benefits Plans Administrative Committee Defendants, Case
No. 1:19-cv-01856-UNA (D. Del., Oct. 2, 2019) is an action brought
individually and as a representative of a class of participants and
beneficiaries of the DuPont Pension and Retirement Plan, to recover
unpaid benefits due to Plaintiff and the putative class, against
Defendants E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, and the DuPont
Benefits Plans Administration Committee, for breach of fiduciary
duties under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.

Plaintiff M.P. Moon, a citizen and resident of the State of
Delaware, was an employee of DuPont from March 7, 1979 to October
31, 1999 and is a participant in and beneficiary of the Plan.

The complaint alleges that the Defendants never adequately informed
Mr. Moon of his right to receive unreduced pension benefits
commencing on July 1, 2010. Mr. Moon did not become aware that he
was eligible to receive unreduced retirement benefits prior to
normal retirement age of 65 until he applied for Social Security
benefits and was informed by the Social Security Administration
that, based on information provided by DuPont, he may have been
eligible for unreduced retirement benefits from the Plan starting
in 2012. As Mr. Moon would later learn from Defendants, he was
eligible for unreduced retirement benefits beginning in July 2010.
Upon learning this, Mr. Moon filed a claim with Benefit
Determination Review Team, the committee established by DuPont to
review claims for benefits, asking that missed pension payments,
totaling $135,492, and which would otherwise be lost forever, be
paid to him. The Benefit Determination Review Team denied Mr.
Moon's claim, citing administrative procedures requiring that a
participant must apply for benefits before benefits can commence.

As required by law, Defendants notified the Internal Revenue
Service (which then notifies the Social Security Administration) of
Mr. Moon's eligibility for unreduced pension benefits commencing
five years prior to his normal retirement date (even though DuPont
later informed Mr. Moon that he was eligible for unreduced pension
benefits seven years prior to normal retirement age), but adopted
administrative procedures that fail to notify participants when
they are eligible to apply for unreduced benefits. This procedure
constitutes a blatant violation of Defendants' fiduciary duty to
administer the Plan solely in the best interest of participants for
the exclusive purpose of providing them benefits. Instead, the
procedure is designed to benefit DuPont at the expense of unwitting
participants who fail to apply for pension benefits as of the date
they are first eligible for unreduced benefits, asserts the
complaint.

Because pension benefits are paid monthly for life, a participant
who fails to commence his or her pension at the earliest date they
are eligible for unreduced benefits will never recover the lost
payments. Instead, those lost payments will benefit DuPont, which
has the financial responsibility for funding all benefits paid from
the Plan. The failure to pay Mr. Moon and other similarly situated
the entire value of the pensions will reduce the financial cost to
DuPont of funding those benefits. The failure to pay Mr. Moon and
others similarly situated the entire value of their benefit results
in an illegal forfeiture in violation of ERISA, says the
complaint.

DIVERSIFIED CONSULTANTS: Lee Sues Over Misleading Collection Letter
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mi Y Lee, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Diversified Consultants Inc., Defendant,
Case No. 2:19-cv-18635-ES-SCM (D. N.J., Oct. 2, 2019) is an action
seeking to recover for violations of the Fair Debt Collection
Practices Act.

In its efforts to collect the alleged Debt, Defendant contacted
Plaintiff by letter dated October 5, 2018. The Letter was the
initial written communication Plaintiff received from Defendant
concerning an alleged Debt. The Letter states in part: "Unless you
notify this office within 30 days after receiving this notice that
you dispute the validity of this debt, or any portion thereof, this
office will assume this debt is valid." The Letter diverts the
Plaintiff's attention to correspondence options, with an image of a
telephone and in bolded text next to it states, "Toll Free:
877-848-1045". The Letter further diverts the consumer's attention
to an image of a clock, listing hours of operation to contact
Defendant.

The complaint alleges that the Letter fails to state explicitly
that a dispute to be effective, must be in writing and sent to the
address. The least sophisticated consumer upon reading the Letter
would likely be confused as to what she must do to effectively
dispute the alleged debt. Because the Letter is reasonably
susceptible to an inaccurate reading by the least sophisticated
consumer, as described, it is deceptive within the meaning of the
FDCPA. The Defendant violated the FDCPA by using a false, deceptive
and misleading representation in its attempt to collect a debt,
says the complaint.

Plaintiff Mi Y Lee is an individual who is a citizen of the State
of New Jersey residing in Bergen County, New Jersey and is a
natural person allegedly obligated to pay a debt.

Defendant is regularly engaged, for profit, in the collection of
debts allegedly owed by consumers.[BN]

E-SERVICE, INC: Dees Sues over Debt Collection Practices
--------------------------------------------------------
David Dees, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated,
the Plaintiff, vs. E-Service, Inc., the Defendant, Case No.
2:19-cv-05210-DMF (D. Ariz., Sept. 18, 2019), seeks to recover
damages in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

The Plaintiff is a natural person allegedly obligated to pay a
debt. Plaintiff's alleged obligation arises from a transaction in
which the money, property, insurance, or services that are the
subject of the transaction were incurred primarily for personal,
family, or household purposes -- namely, personal dental services.

In connection with the collection of the Debt, the Defendant sent
Plaintiff initial written communication dated May 28, 2019.

The Defendant's May 28, 2019 letter purports to contain the notices
required in an initial communication by 15 U.S.C. section
1692g(a).

However, the Defendant's May 28, 2019 letter states: "If you do
notify us of a dispute, we will obtain verification of the debt and
mail it to you."

The Defendant's May 28, 2019 letter fails to inform Plaintiff, or
the least sophisticated consumer, that the right to verification is
triggered only through written dispute, the lawsuit says.[BN]

EPISCOPAL HEALTH: Dumay et al. Sue over Data Breach
---------------------------------------------------
LORRELL DUMAY, DIAN DUMAY, and JODI WOLFSON, individually and on
behalf of all others similarly situated, the Plaintiffs, vs.
EPISCOPAL HEALTH SERVICES INC., the Defendant, Case No. 715629/2019
(N.Y. Sup., Sept. 11, 2019), alleges that Defendant failed to
safeguard and protect confidential information of Plaintiffs and
the other members of the Class, including financial information
(e.g., credit card numbers and bank account information), medical
information, and other personal information (e.g., Social Security
Numbers and dates of birth), and other protected health information
as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability
Act of 1996.

According to the complaint, the Defendant did not have sufficient
cyber-security procedures and policies in place to safeguard the
Sensitive Information that Plaintiffs provided to Defendant.

As a result, one or more of Defendant's employees' email accounts
were subject to unauthorized access -- or "hacked" -- between
August 28, 2018, and October 5, 2018. The Plaintiffs and members of
the proposed Class suffered damages as a result of the unauthorized
disclosure of their Sensitive Information.

The Plaintiffs were patients at St. John's Episcopal Hospital.[BN]

FRIENDSHIP MANOR: Faces Kirby Suit Over FLSA and BIPA Violations
----------------------------------------------------------------
KARA KIRBY on behalf of herself and all other similarly situated
persons, known and unknown, Plaintiffs, v. FRIENDSHIP MANOR, INC.,
Defendant, Case No. 4:19-cv-04198-SLD-JEH (C.D., Ill., Oct. 4,
2019) is a lawsuit brought as a collective action pursuant to the

information prior to scanning their fingerprints. The Defendant did
not obtain consent from Plaintiff and the putative BIPA class to
disclose, redisclose, or otherwise disseminate their biometric
identifiers and/or biometric information, says the complaint.

HELP AT HOME: Armand Sues Over Unlawful Use of Biometric Data
-------------------------------------------------------------
NALMA ARMAND, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff v. HELP AT HOME, LLC, Defendant, Case No.
2019CH11425 (Circuit Ct., Cook Cty., Ill., Oct. 2, 2019) is a Class
Action Complaint and Demand for Jury Trial against Defendant Help
at Home, LLC to put a stop to its unlawful collection, use, and
storage of Plaintiffs and the putative Class members' sensitive
biometric data.

When employees work at HAH, they are required to scan their
fingerprint in its biometric time tracking system as a means of
authentication, instead of using only key fobs or other
identification cards. While there are tremendous benefits to using
biometric time clocks in the workplace, there are also serious
risks. Recognizing the need to protect its citizens from situations
like these, Illinois enacted the Biometric Information Privacy Act,
specifically to regulate companies that collect and store Illinois
citizens' biometrics, such as fingerprints. Despite this law, HAH
disregards its employees' statutorily protected privacy rights and
unlawfully collects, stores, and uses their biometric data in
violation of the BIPA, says the complaint.

Specifically, HAH has violated (and continues to violate) the BIPA
because it did not: Properly inform Plaintiff and the Class members
in writing of the specific purpose and length of time for which
their fingerprints were being collected, stored, and used, as
required by the BIPA; Provide a publicly available retention
schedule and guidelines for permanently destroying Plaintiff and
the Class's fingerprints, as required by the BIPA; nor Receive a
written release from Plaintiff or the members of the Class to
collect, capture, or otherwise obtain fingerprints, as required by
the BIPA. Accordingly, this Complaint seeks an order: (i) declaring
that Defendant's conduct violates the BIPA; (ii) requiring
Defendant to cease the unlawful activities discussed herein; and
(iii) awarding liquidated damages to Plaintiff and the proposed
Class.

Plaintiff is a natural person and citizen of the State of Illinois
who worked for Defendant through 2019.

Defendant HAH is a home care agency, administering care to elderly
clients in their own homes. HAH operates throughout the state of
Illinois.[BN]

I.C. SYSTEM: Dees Sues over Debt Collection Practices
-----------------------------------------------------
David Dees, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated,
the Plaintiff, vs. I.C. System, Inc., the Defendant, Case No.
2:19-cv-05212-MTL (D. Ariz., Sept. 18, 2019), seeks to recover
damages against Defendant pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection
Practices Act.

The Plaintiff is a natural person allegedly obligated to pay a
debt. Plaintiff's alleged obligation arises from a transaction in
which the money, property, insurance, or services that are the
subject of the transaction were incurred primarily for personal,
family, or household purposes – namely, personal cell phone
services.

The Defendant regularly collects or attempts to collect, directly
or indirectly, debts owed or due, or asserted to be owed or due,
another. In connection with the collection of the Debt, the
Defendant sent Plaintiff a letter dated May 16, 2019.

The May 16, 2019 letter was its initial communication with
Plaintiff with respect to the Debt. The letter purported to contain
the notices required in an initial communication under 15 U.S.C.
section 1692g(a). The letter identified the balance of the Debt as
$675.95.

The Defendant sent another letter on July 1, 2019 identifying the
balance of the Debt as $685.82. However, this amount is $9.87 more
than the balance of the Debt identified in the May 16, 2019
letter.

The May 16, 2019 letter, therefore, failed to inform Plaintiff that
the Debt would increase due to accrued interest, fees, or other
charges.   The May 16, 2019 letter is, thus, misleading to the
consumer who could readily conclude that the total account balance
stated as due was due at any time, when in fact it was not, and was
subject to adjustment on a periodic basis, the lawsuit says.[BN]

LIFESOURCE WATER: Kubik Suit Asserts TCPA Violation
---------------------------------------------------
ANDREW KUBIK, INDIVIDUALLY AND ON BEHALF OF ALL OTHERS SIMILARLY
SITUATED, Plaintiff, v. LIFESOURCE WATER SYSTEMS, INC., Defendant,
Case No. 3:19-cv-01933-BAS-LL (S.D. Cal., Oct. 4, 2019) is a Class
Action Complaint for damages, injunctive relief, and any other
available legal or equitable remedies, resulting from the illegal
actions of Defendant, in negligently or intentionally contacting
Plaintiff on Plaintiff's cellular telephone, in violation of the
Telephone Consumer Protection Act, thereby invading Plaintiff's
privacy.

At no time did Plaintiff ever enter into a business relationship
with Defendant. The Defendant used an "automatic telephone dialing
system", to send the artificial or prerecorded message to Plaintiff
as prohibited by the TCPA. This ATDS has the capacity to store or
produce telephone numbers to be called, using a random or
sequential number generator. The Defendant utilized a predictive
dialer to send Plaintiff the text message on February 13, 2019. The
Defendant lacked "prior express consent" to contact Plaintiff on
Plaintiff's cellular telephone. Plaintiff suffered a concrete and
real invasion of Plaintiff's legally protected privacy rights
through Defendant's violation of the TCPA, says the complaint.

Plaintiff is a citizen and resident of the State of California.

Defendant is a national water company.[BN]

LIFETECH RESOURCES: Yang Says Beauty Products Have Toxic Component
------------------------------------------------------------------
KIMBERLY YANG, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, vs. LIFETECH RESOURCES LLC, the Defendant,
Case No. 4:19-cv-05811-HSG (N.D. Cal., Sept. 17, 2019), targets the
Defendant's lash and brow enhancing serums, neuLASH (TM) and
neuBROW (TM), which are deceptively labeled and marketed because
the Defendant fails to disclose the serious and potentially harmful
side effects linked to an ingredient contained in the Products.

As part of the Defendant's packaging, it markets both neuLASH and
neuBROW as treatments that are "grounded in science," and as
"gentle" and "effective" ways to "address the weakening and loss of
the lashes and brows."  The Defendant further states that it
"brings a scientific approach to beauty" by combining "radical
technology with potent blends of essential proteins, vitamins and
rejuvenating ingredients to create targeted skincare treatments"
and represents its Products as "clinically-proven solutions."

However, since the Products have been on the market, the Defendant
has failed to disclose material facts to consumers about the
existence and severity of symptoms and side effects of isopropyl
cloprostenate ("ICP"), a synthetic prostaglandin analog and active
ingredient in the Products.

Prostagladin analogs are chemicals manufactured to be biologically
equivalent to the lipid compound prostaglandin. Prostaglandin
analogs are commonly used as topical prescriptions in the medical
treatment and management of glaucoma to reduce elevated intraocular
pressure. Prostaglandin analogs are also believed to contribute to
eyelash growth. However, there are severe side effects associated
with prostaglandin analogs, including eye color change, darkening
of eyelid skin, droopy eyelids, sunken eyes, stinging, eye redness,
and itching. Notwithstanding these undesirable and serious side
effects, the hair-growth enhancing properties of prostaglandin
analogs has led to the development of products containing
prostaglandin analogs for the purpose of eyelash enhancement, the
lawsuit says.

The Defendant manufactures, distributes, markets, advertises,
sells, and labels neuLASH and neuBROW as cosmetic eyelash and
eyebrow enhancing serums that promote youthful and luxurious
looking brows and lashes.[BN]

MDL 2875: Bid for Discovery on Plaintiffs' Litigation Funding Nixed
-------------------------------------------------------------------
In the case IN RE: VALSARTAN N-NITROSODIMETHYLAMINE (NDMA)
CONTAMINATION PRODUCTS LIABILITY LITIGATION, Civil No. 19-2875
(RBK/JS) (D. N.J.), Magistrate Judge Joel Schneider of the U.S.
District Court for the District of New Jersey, Camden Vicinage,
denied the Defendants' request for discovery directed to the
Plaintiffs' litigation funding.

The MDL concerns various FDA and voluntary recalls of contaminated
valsartan, a generic prescription medication indicated in the
treatment of high blood pressure and other conditions.  The Feb.
14, 2019 Transfer Order of the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict
Litigation is reported at In Re: Valsartan N-Nitrosodimethylamine
(NDMA) Contamination Products Liability Litigation, 363 F.Supp.3d
1378 (MDL No. 2875 2019).  The Plaintiffs generally allege the
Defendants' valsartan contained carcinogens that caused personal
injuries and economic losses.  The Defendants deny their drugs
caused any injuries or damages, although it is not disputed that at
least some of their drugs were contaminated.  

Presently approximately 60 Defendants are named.  These Defendants
include manufacturers of the active pharmaceutical ingredient
("API"), suppliers, repackagers, wholesalers, and retailers.  Some
of the "lead" Defendants, API manufacturers, are located in China
and India.  Given the number of potential Plaintiffs, the amount in
dispute, the seriousness of the Plaintiffs' claimed injuries, and
the fact that some "target" Defendants are located overseas, the
MDL will undoubtedly be costly to prosecute and defend.

Since the first case management conference in March, 2019, much has
been done to organize and manage the case.  This includes
designating and approving the parties' leadership structure, and
identifying the "core discovery" to be produced by the Defendants.


In June, 2019, three consolidated "master complaints" were filed.
These complaints generally grouped the Plaintiffs into three
categories.  The first master complaint addresses the claims of
individual Plaintiffs who allege they contracted various forms of
cancer from consuming Defendants' contaminated valsartan.  To date
approximately 126 personal injury cases of this type have been
filed.  The Plaintiffs' counsel estimates approximately 2,000 cases
may eventually be filed.

The second master complaint is a nationwide medical monitoring
class action filed on behalf of all individuals who consumed
contaminated generic valsartan-containing drugs at least since Jan.
1, 2012.  The potential class size is undoubtedly in the tens of
thousands.

The third master complaint is a nationwide economic class action
filed on behalf of all individuals and entities who, since at least
Jan. 1, 2012 to the present, paid any amount of money for a
valsartan-containing drug.  The class size is also expected to be
very large.

To date, no formal discovery has been directed to the Plaintiffs.
The Court expects to shortly approve "Fact Sheets" to be answered
by all personal injury Plaintiffs and the named class
representatives.  As to the Defendants, the "lead" parties have
already produced most of what has been denominated as "core
discovery."

The present discovery dispute arose in the context of what
questions would be included in the Plaintiffs' Fact Sheet to be
answered.  Specifically, the Defendants propose to require each
Plaintiff to produce the following: "all documents and
communications related to funding or financing, if any, you or your
counsel have obtained to pursue this litigation."  

Their letter brief identifies precisely what they want: The
Defendants seek to obtain information about the Plaintiffs'
agreements and communications with any third-party funders of the
litigation, including the Plaintiffs' documents and communications
relating to or concerning any litigation finance obtained in
connection with the litigation, documents and communications
regarding conferences, meetings or conventions attended with the
purposes of seeking litigation finance, and documents and
communications relating to agreements to finance the litigation.

Not unexpectedly, the Plaintiffs object to producing discovery
regarding their litigation funding.  Albeit, they are willing to
produce some documents for an in camera review.  The Plaintiffs
argue their private financial information is irrelevant to their
claims and defenses and the Defendants have "no legitimate need for
the requested information."  The Plaintiffs, however, agree to
submit documents to the Court for an in camera review, where the
litigation funding company has control or input into litigation
decisions, including settlement, which could interfere with a
Plaintiff's control of his, or her lawsuit and the attorney-client
relationship.

The Defendants disagree with the Plaintiffs and contend third-party
funding represents a critical piece of information to which
Defendants are entitled.  They argue the requested discovery is
relevant to identifying, the real party in interest as to some or
all of the claims alleged in the action, and whether the Plaintiffs
have standing to sue.  

The Defendants also argue the Plaintiffs' funding information is
relevant to determining: (1) the Plaintiffs' credibility and bias,
(2) the scope of proportional discovery, (3) the scope of potential
sanctions, and (4) the medical necessity and the reasonableness of
the Plaintiff's treatments.  They argue, the recent history of mass
tort multi-district litigation is littered with examples of
undisclosed non-party involvement gone wrong to the detriment of
the legal process and public health.  They also argue that courts
and legislators lean toward mandating disclosure of third-party
funding.

In his order, Magistrate Judge Schneider said he will deny the
Defendants' request for carte blanche discovery of the Plaintiffs'
litigation funding as the discovery is irrelevant to the claims and
defenses in the case.  At best, the discovery is a side issue that
does not help advance this complex litigation.  To date, the
litigation has run smoothly without the requested discovery and the
Court expects this to remain the case.  He opines that the
Defendants' parade of horribles that might occur from litigation
funding is pure speculation.  To be sure, however, he is not ruling
that the plaintiffs' litigation funding can never be discovered.
If good cause exists to order the discovery in an appropriate
instance, it will be done.  What the Court will not do is Order the
discovery in the absence of a demonstratable showing that the
discovery is relevant to a claim or defense in the case.  That
showing has not been made to date.

Accordingly, for all the foregoing reasons, Magistrate Judge
Schneider denied the Defendants' request that the Plaintiffs'
litigation funding be included in the Plaintiffs' Fact Sheets.  To
the extent the request is made that the Court Order the automatic
or carte blanche disclosure of the Plaintiffs' litigation funding
agreements and documents, the request is denied.

The Court will review in camera the Plaintiffs' litigation funding
documents where their counsel makes the request or if good cause
exists to believe a litigation financer has control or input into
the Plaintiffs' litigation decisions, including settlement, which
would interfere with a Plaintiff's control of his or her lawsuit
and the attorney-client relationship, or other good cause exists
for the review.  The Court will thereafter determine the scope of
discovery, if any.

MRS BPO: Mun Sues Over Confusing Collection Letter
--------------------------------------------------
Mindy Mun, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated Plaintiff, v. MRS BPO, LLC, Defendant, Case No.
7:19-cv-09132-CS (S.D. N.Y., Oct. 2, 2019) is an action seeking to
recover for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

In its efforts to collect an alleged Debt, Defendant contacted
Plaintiff by letter dated October 2, 2018. The Letter lists
Plaintiff's Account Balance as $1,705.07. The Letter also states in
a center aligned boxed form at its dead center, the total amount of
the debt due as of charge-off as $2,273.08. The Letter does not
clearly specify as to which is the amount that the Plaintiff is
supposed to pay to fully discharge the alleged Debt. The Letter can
be interpreted by least sophisticated consumer to mean that the
account balance is the amount owed to the creditor. Whether a
payment would actually settle the debt is, by definition, a
material term of a settlement offer and must be communicated
clearly and effectively. The least sophisticated consumer reading
the Letter would be left to wonder about a material term of the
offer. For the foregoing reasons, Defendant violated the FDCPA and
is liable to Plaintiff therefor, says the complaint.

Plaintiff Mindy Mun is an individual who is a citizen of the State
of New York residing in Westchester County, New York and is a
natural person allegedly obligated to pay a debt.

Defendant is regularly engaged, for profit, in the collection of
debts allegedly owed by consumers.[BN]

19-cv-02150 (N.D. Ohio, September 17, 2019), seeks relief for
breaches of fiduciary duty and for violations of Sections 14(a) and
20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 arising out of the
sale of Omnova Solutions to Synthomer PLC through its wholly-owned
subsidiaries, Spirit USA Holdings Inc. and Synthomer USA LLC.

On July 3, 2019, OMNOVA announced that Synthomer will purchase all
of OMNOVA's outstanding common shares at a purchase price of $10.15
per share. Ford, a shareholder of OMNOVA, claims that Defendants
locked up the deal to preclude other bidders from making a
successful competing offers together with a "no-solicitation"
provision that prevents the Company from soliciting other potential
acquirers and negotiating with potential acquirers.

The merger statement also fails to provide Omnova the Company's
financial projections, the data and inputs underlying the financial
valuation analyses that support the fairness opinion provided by
Morgan Stanley & Co., the background process of the transaction and
potential conflicts of interest within Omnova, asserts the
complaint. [BN]

PHILIP MORRIS: Court Flips in Part Final Judgment in Gentile Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the case, PHILIP MORRIS USA INC., Appellant, v. MICHAEL GENTILE,
as Personal Representative of the ESTATE OF BRENDA GENTILE,
Appellee, Case No. 4D18-1439 (Fla. Dist. App.), Judge Dorian K.
Damoorgian of the District Court of Appeal of Florida for the
Fourth District reversed in part the final judgment entered in
favor of Plaintiff Michael Gentile as Representative of the estate
of his deceased wife, Brenda Gentile.

The Plaintiff filed a wrongful death action against PM asserting
Mrs. Gentile died from lung cancer caused by her addiction to
cigarettes designed, manufactured, advertised, marketed,
distributed and/or sold by PM.  In his suit, the Plaintiff alleged
causes of action for strict liability, negligence, fraud by
concealment, fraud by misrepresentation, and conspiracy to commit
fraud by concealment.  At trial, it was established that Mrs.
Gentile smoked at least a pack of cigarettes a day for over 30
years.  She smoked several brands throughout the years, but her
main brand was PM's Virginia Slims, both lights and ultra-lights.
Mrs. Gentile was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer in 2014.  She
passed away less than six months later.

At trial, Plaintiff presented testimony from various experts
concerning the American tobacco industry, generally, and the
actions the tobacco companies took to market their products to
consumers while concealing their harm.  In November 2002, PM
provided newspaper inserts, a 20-page booklet detailing the health
risks of light cigarettes, in several major newspapers stating that
"[l]ow-tar cigarettes evidence does not indicate a benefit to
public health.  Also, in November 2002, it added onserts, a folded
leaflet placed under the cellophane packaging, to its light and
ultra-light cigarettes.

In order to establish that PM made a false or misleading statement
about its light or low-tar cigarettes within the repose period
notwithstanding the disclosures, Plaintiff presented testimony of
two PM corporate representatives, Dr. Lipowicz and Jennifer Pike.
Through his prerecorded deposition testimony taken in 2017, Dr.
Lipowicz explained that light and ultra-light cigarettes have a
longer filter, making the smoke more diluted, which meant less tar
and less nicotine.  Jennifer Pike testified that PM continued
marketing and advertising with the terms light and ultra-light
until 2010.  

At the close of the Plaintiff's case, PM moved for a directed
verdict on all counts.  Relevant to the fraud claims, PM argued
that the Plaintiff did not provide evidence PM made a false or
misleading statement about its light or low-tar cigarettes during
the repose period.

The court denied the motions, finding that the statute of repose
presented a "jury issue" in light of the "advertising" evidence.
It did not specify which "advertising" evidence created a triable
issue for the jury.  The jury ultimately returned a verdict in
favor of the Plaintiff on all claims and awarded a total of $7.1
million in compensatory damages.  The verdict form did not specify
the amounts attributed to each cause of action.  The appeal
follows.

PM maintains the court erred on two grounds.  First, PM argues that
the court improperly denied its motion for directed verdict on its
three fraud-based claims because the Plaintiff failed to prove PM
made a false or misleading statement about its light or low-tar
cigarettes after May 12, 2003, as required by Florida's statute of
repose.  Second, it asserts that certain comments made by the
Plaintiff's counsel during closing arguments necessitate a new
trial.

Judge Damoorgian finds that PM's pre-May 12, 2003 disclosures
adequately explained "there is no such thing as a safe cigarette"
and put consumers on notice that light and ultra-light cigarettes
are of no benefit to public health.  Moreover, the onserts
explicitly stated that the descriptors light and ultra-light
referred to strength of taste and that light and ultra-light
cigarettes were not less harmful than regular cigarettes.  The
onserts also explained that the terms "low tar" or "lowered tar and
nicotine" referred to the tar and nicotine yield as measured by a
government test method, and "the amount of tar and nicotine you
inhale will be higher" if "you block ventilation holes, inhale more
deeply, take more puffs or smoke more cigarettes."  Accordingly,
any alleged misrepresentations that PM made in the past regarding
light and ultra-light cigarettes were expressly disclaimed prior to
the repose period, thus foreclosing the Plaintiff from recovering
in fraud.

The Plaintiff nonetheless argues that the following constituted
evidence of misrepresentation and concealment sufficient to create
a jury issue on the fraud claims: (1) PM's continued use of the
descriptors light and ultra-light during the repose period; and (2)
the testimony of PM's corporate representatives.

The Judge disagrees.  First, because the pre-May 12, 2003
disclosures adequately disclaimed any prior misrepresentations
regarding light and ultra-light cigarettes, the continued use of
the descriptors light and ultra-light during the repose period
could not constitute a misrepresentation.  Second, the testimony of
PM's corporate representatives did not constitute evidence of
fraud. Although Dr. Lipowicz testified that light cigarettes were
safer, his deposition testimony was taken in August 2017, well
after the repose period ended.  Also, Jennifer Pike's testimony
regarding light and ultra-light cigarettes containing less tar was
in reference specifically to the measuring method employed by the
Federal Trade Commission via a smoking machine.  This exact
explanation was also included in the cigarette packaging onserts
issued in 2002.   

For the foregoing reasons, Judge Damoorgian reversed and remanded
with instructions that the trial court enters a directed verdict in
favor of PM on the Plaintiff's fraud-based claims.  Moreover,
because the jury awarded compensatory damages without specifying
the amounts attributable to the non-fraud claims, he remanded for a
new trial on the remaining negligence and strict liability claims.

PHOENIX LIFE: Faces Suit over Breach of Insurance Policy
--------------------------------------------------------
CONTINENTAL CASUALTY COMPANY, individually and on behalf of all
others similarly situated, Plaintiff v. PHOENIX LIFE INSURANCE
COMPANY; PHL VARIABLE INSURANCE COMPANY; and NASSAU INSURANCE GROUP
HOLDINGS, L.P., Defendants, Case No. 3:19-cv-01448-JAM (D. Conn.,
Sept. 16, 2019) seeks compensatory and consequential damages,
declaratory relief, including a declaration that the cost of
insurance ("COI") increase was in breach of the terms of the
Plaintiffs' life insurance policies. The Plaintiff seeks a
declaratory judgment that there is no coverage for any Insured with
respect to two lawsuits currently styled Advance Trust & Life
Escrow Services, LTA, as Nominee of Life Partners Position Holder
Trust v. PHL Variable Insurance Company, No. 18-cv-3444 (S.D.N.Y.),
and Fan v. Phoenix Life Ins. Co., No. 18-cv-1288 (S.D.N.Y.).

According to the Plaintiff in the complaint, the Underlying Actions
do not fall within the scope of coverage under the Policy for each
of three independently sufficient reasons: (1) the Underlying
Actions do not constitute a Claim first made during the Policy
Period; (2) the Prior and Pending Exclusion bars coverage for the
Underlying Actions because they are based upon or arise out of or
are attributable to essentially the same facts and circumstances as
prior litigation and regulatory proceedings against Phoenix; and
(3) the Contractual Liability Exclusion bars coverage for the
Underlying Actions because the Underling Actions are based on or
arising out of breach of any oral or written contact or agreement.

POOH-BAH: Quezada File Suit Over Unlawful Storage of Biometric Data
-------------------------------------------------------------------
KATHERINE QUEZADA, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. POOH-BAH ENTERPRISES, INC. d/b/a
RICK'S CABARET, an Illinois corporation; and RCI HOSPITALITY
HOLDINGS, INC., a Texas corporation, Defendants, Case No.
2019CH11515 (Circuit Ct., Cook Cty., Ill., Oct. 4, 2019) is a Class
Action Complaint and Demand for Jury Trial against Defendants for
violating the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act.

Since 2008, it has been illegal in Illinois to collect an
individual's biometric information or identifiers-such as a
fingerprint, voiceprint, or faceprint-without the individual's
informed, written consent. Despite the substantial privacy risks
created by the collection and storage of biometric data, and the
decade-old prohibition on collecting and retaining biometric data
in Illinois without informed consent, Defendants use a biometric
time-tracking system that requires their entertainers, waitstaff,
and bartenders to use fingerprint scans as a means of
authentication each time they start or stop working. When
Defendants' Illinois employees begin their employment, Defendants
require them to scan their fingerprints into an employee database.
Defendants' scanning and retention of employees' fingerprints
without informed consent is clearly unlawful in Illinois, says the
complaint.

Plaintiff Katherine Quezada is a natural person and a citizen of
the State of Illinois residing in Cook County.

Rick's Cabaret is a gentleman's club located in Chicago, Illinois,
and a wholly owned subsidiary of Defendant RCI.[BN]

PPL CORP: Seeks 9th Circuit Review of Ruling in Talen Montana Suit
------------------------------------------------------------------
Defendants PPL Corporation filed an appeal from a Court ruling in
the lawsuit styled Talen Montana Retirement Plan, et al. v. PPL
Corporation, et al., Case No. 1:18-cv-00174-SPW, in the U.S.
District Court for the District of Montana, Billings.

The appellate case is captioned as Talen Montana Retirement Plan,
et al. v. PPL Corporation, et al., Case No. 19-80132, in the United
States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

As reported in the Class Action Reporter on Aug. 30, 2019, PPL
Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission on August 6, 2019, for the quarterly period
ended June 30, 2019, that the company continues to defend a class
action suit initiated by Talen Montana Retirement Plan and Talen
Energy Marketing.

On October 29, 2018, Talen Montana Retirement Plan and Talen Energy
Marketing filed a putative class action complaint on behalf of
current and contingent creditors of Talen Montana who allegedly
suffered harm or allegedly will suffer reasonably foreseeable harm
as a result of the November 2014 distribution.

The action was filed in the Sixteenth Judicial District of the
State of Montana, Rosebud County, against PPL and certain of its
affiliates and current and former officers and directors (Talen
Putative Class Action).

The Plaintiffs assert claims for, among other things, fraudulent
transfer, both actual and constructive; recovery against subsequent
transferees; civil conspiracy; aiding and abetting tortious
conduct; and unjust enrichment.  They are seeking avoidance of the
purportedly fraudulent transfer, unspecified damages, including
punitive damages, the imposition of a constructive trust, and other
relief.

In December 2018, PPL removed the Talen Putative Class Action from
the Sixteenth Judicial District of the State of Montana to the
United States District Court for the District of Montana, Billings
Division.[BN]

RCM TECHNOLOGIES: Does not Properly Pay Workers, Hubbard Suit Says
------------------------------------------------------------------
RHONDA HUBBARD, an individual on behalf of herself and others
similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. RCM TECHNOLOGIES (USA), INC.; and
DOES 1 to 10 inclusive, Defendants, Case No. 3:19-cv-06363 (N.D.
Cal., Oct. 4, 2019) is a California-wide class action against RCM
TECHNOLOGIES (USA), INC. for (1) failing to include the value of
per diem and stipend payments in the regular rate of pay when
calculating overtime and (2) failing to pay all wages owing at time
of discharge.

Plaintiff was required to earn her weekly per diem pay each week by
working the minimum number of required weekly hours specified in
her assignment contract. If Plaintiff failed to satisfy the number
of minimum required weekly hours specified in her assignment
contract, her per diem and stipend pay was subject to an hourly
charge-back for each hour she fell short. Defendants did not
include the value of Plaintiff's weekly per diem pay in her regular
rate of pay when calculating overtime, says the complaint.  

Notwithstanding that the amount of the weekly per diem and stipend
pay is based on and varies with hours worked, Defendants do not
include the value of the per diem and stipend pay in Travelers'
regular rates of pay when calculating overtime and double time,
adds the complaint.

Plaintiff is a citizen of California who was employed by RCM as a
non-exempt hourly employee to work multiple assignments in
California.

RCM is a New Jersey corporation that has been engaged in the
business of health care staffing throughout California and the rest
of the United States.[BN]

SLACK TECHNOLOGIES: Dennee Hits Share Price Drop
------------------------------------------------
Tyler Dennee, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff, v. Slack Technologies, Inc., Stewart
Butterfield, Allen Shim, Brandon Zell, Andrew Braccia, Edith
Cooper, Sarah Friar, John O'Farrell, Chamath Palihapitiya and
Graham Smith, Defendants, Case No. 19-cv-05857 (N.D. Cal.,
September 19, 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.

Slack is a company that allows users to share and aggregate
information from other software, take action on notifications, and
advance workflows in a multitude of third-party applications.

In June 20, 2019, Slack filed its prospectus with the SEC,
registering for the resale of up to 118,429,640 shares of Class A
common stock by registered shareholders at a reference price of
$26.00.

The complaint alleges that Defendants failed to disclose to
investors that the Slack Platform was susceptible to recurring
service-level disruptions that were increasingly likely to occur as
it scaled its services to a larger user base. It purportedly
provides credits to customers even if the customer was not
specifically affected by service-level disruptions and had a
material adverse impact on the company's financial result.

On September 4, 2019, Slack reported its second-quarter fiscal 2019
results and issued guidance for the third quarter, expecting a
wider loss than analysts predicted. On this news, Slack's share
price fell $3.69 per share, nearly 12%, over two consecutive
trading sessions to close at $27.38 per share on September 6, 2019.
It traded as low as $25.72 per share, a significant decline from
the $26.00 per share reference price for its IPO.

Dennee purchased Slack securities and lost and as a result of the
federal securities law violations. [BN]

UNITEDHEALTHCARE: Court Dismisses Dane's Insurance Case
-------------------------------------------------------
Mark Dane has taken an appeal from the dismissal of his class
action lawsuit against Unitedhealthcare Insurance Company et al.

In the class action lawsuit styled as MARK DANE, Individually and
on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated, the Plaintiff, vs.
UNITEDHEALTHCARE INSURANCE COMPANY, et al., the Defendants, Case
No. 3:18-cv-00792-SRU (D. Conn.), the Hon. Judge Stefan R.
Underhill entered an order on June 24, 2019, dismissing case and
directing Clerk to close the file.

The fee that Dane and each insured pays is an expense of the
program paid out of United's CID-approved Medigap premiums, and
Dane paid only the legally required rate. Because Dane did not pay
more than the CID-approved filed rate for the coverage he received,
and he could not have purchased United Medigap coverage for any
other rate, he cannot plausibly allege any loss caused by United's
allocation of its premium revenue to program expenses.

Although Dane argues that he would have chosen another insurance
company had he known about the alleged misconduct, that allegation
does not demonstrate that he suffered any loss from his selection
of United Medigap insurance. Therefore, Dane does not meet the
standing requirements under CUTPA or CPPA.

In addition to consumer protection law claims, Dane also alleges
(1) breach of the Medigap group insurance contract; (2) unjust
enrichment; (3) breach of the covenant of good faith and fair
dealing; and (4) conversion. The royalty that Dane pays is not an
additional cost, but is instead a program cost paid out of the
CID-approved rate.

Because the insurance contract does not prohibit royalty payments
or program costs, Dane's breach of contract and breach of the
covenant of good faith and fair dealing arguments both fail. In
addition, Dane does not allege any benefit that Defendants unjustly
retained because the royalty payment for use of AARP's intellectual
property was openly disclosed. Finally, Dane did not have ownership
rights to the 4.9% of his payment because that payment was a
royalty for use of AARP's intellectual property. Thus, Dane's
conversion argument also fails, the Court says.

Dane brought claims on behalf of a purported nationwide class of
current and former insureds who purchased United Medigap coverage.
He asserted seven Connecticut-law causes of action.[BN]

USAA CASUALTY: Griffy Sues over Automobile Insurance
----------------------------------------------------
SHINEQUA GRIFFY, on behalf of herself and all others similarly
situated, the Plaintiff, vs. USAA CASUALTY INSURANCE COMPANY, the
Defendant, Case No. S19C-09-015 RFS (Del. Super., Sept. 18, 2019),
seeks declaratory relief for USAA Casualty Insurance Company's
unlawful methodology in calculating statutory interest under 21
Del. C. section 2118B.

The action is brought on behalf of all policyholders under any
existing policy of Delaware automobile insurance issued by USAA.

USAA is a prolific underwriter of automobile insurance in Delaware,
including first-party medical benefits for persons injured while
driving or occupying motor vehicles. USAA has derived substantial
revenues and profits from the sale of automobile insurance products
in Delaware.

According to the complaint, USAA failed to pay the bill until
August 1, 2018; failed to pay the required statutory interest at
the time it paid the bill; and did not in fact pay statutory
interest on the bill until August 1, 2019. Under this scenario,
USAA would (wrongly) pay only the statutory interest that accrued
during the period July 1, 2018 through August 1, 2018, treating the
accrual of statutory interest as having ended on the latter date,
even though it failed to pay that statutory interest for another
whole year.

USAA's methodology for calculating statutory interest under section
2118B is wrong because, where the statutory interest is owed, USAA
can only (lawfully) bring the accrual of that interest to an end by
paying both the principal amount owed in PIP benefits and the
required statutory interest. So long as the required statutory
interest remains unpaid, such interest continues to accrue, the
lawsuit says.

USAA Casualty Insurance Company is engaged in the business of
insurance, and regularly sells automobile insurance within the
State of Delaware.[BN]

VEP ASSOCIATES: Monroe Sues Over Unpaid Overtime Wages

JOSEPH MONROE and RUSSELL DAVILA, on behalf of themselves and all
