AMAG INC: Faces Barnes Suit Over Sale and Marketing of Makena
-------------------------------------------------------------
MARY JO BARNES, individually and on behalf of others similarly
situated v. AMAG, Inc., Case No. 3:19-cv-05088-RK (W.D. Mo., Nov.
1, 2019), arises from the Defendant's marketing, sale, and
manufacturing of the drug Makena, a hydroxyprogesterone caproate,
which was and is marketed as an effective hormonal medication that
reduces the risks for pregnant mothers of giving birth before
term.

Ms. Barnes, a resident of Miller, Lawrence County, Missouri, was
prescribed, purchased, and injected with Makena during the class
period.  She paid out-of-pocket for Makena shots that cost over
$1,000 each.  She began taking Makena during her 16 week of
pregnancy and delivered her baby preterm at 24 weeks.  The baby
died shortly thereafter.

AMAG is a Delaware corporation headquartered in Waltham,
Massachusetts.  AMAG is a publicly traded company and currently
holds the exclusive rights to Makena.

On March 8, 2019, AMAG announced the results of that FDA-mandated
follow-up trial, known as the PROLONG (Progestin's Role in
Optimizing Neonatal Gestation) study ("PROLONG Study").  According
to AMAG, the PROLONG Study's results showed no "statistically
significant difference between the treatment [Makena] and placebo
arms for the co-primary endpoints."  The results also showed there
was no significant difference between subjects using Makena and
subjects using placebos on the rate or neonatal mortality or
morbidity.

In other words, the PROLONG Study showed that Makena, which is
exorbitantly-priced and is painful to take, is no more effective
than a placebo, the Plaintiff contends.  On October 29, 2019, and
based on the results of the PROLONG Study, the FDA Bone,
Reproductive and Urologic Drugs Advisory Committee recommended that
Makena be withdrawn from the market.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff and proposed class
members were injured because they purchased a product, they
otherwise would have purchased, due to the Defendant's falsities,
misrepresentations and/or omissions.[BN]

APPLIED OPTOELECTRONICS: Bid to Dismiss Texas Class Suit Pending
----------------------------------------------------------------
Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that the motion
to dismiss the consolidated class action suit in the U.S. District
Court for the Southern District of Texas, is pending.

On October 1, 2018, a lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court
for the Southern District of Texas against the Company and two of
its officers in Gaurav Taneja v. Applied Optoelectronics, Inc.,
Thompson Lin, and Stefan Murry, Case No. 4:18-cv-03544.

The complaint in this matter seeks class action status on behalf of
the Company's shareholders, alleging violations of Sections 10(b)
and 20(a) of the Exchange Act against the Company, its chief
executive officer, and its chief financial officer, arising out of
its announcement on September 28, 2018 that it was revising its
third quarter revenue guidance due to "an issue with a small
percentage of 25G lasers within a specific customer environment."

This case was consolidated with two identical cases styled Davin
Pokoik v. Applied Optoelectronics, Inc., Chih-Hsiang Lin, and
Stefan J. Murry, Case No. 4:18-cv-3722 and Stephen McGrath v.
Applied Optoelectronics, Inc., Chih-Hsiang Lin, and Stefan J.
Murry.  

Mark Naglich was appointed as Lead Plaintiff on the consolidated
matter on January 4, 2019.  

Lead Plaintiff filed an amended consolidated complaint on March 5,
2019, and the Company filed a motion to dismiss the amended
consolidated complaint on May 6, 2019.

On July 5, 2019, Plaintiff filed a response in opposition to the
motion to dismiss, and the Company filed its reply brief in further
support of the motion on August 5, 2019.

The motion to dismiss is now fully briefed and is pending before
the court.

Applied Optoelectronics said, "The Company disputes the allegations
and intends to vigorously contest the matter."

Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. designs, manufactures, and sells
various fiber-optic networking products worldwide. It offers
optical modules, lasers, transmitters and transceivers, and
turn-key equipment, as well as headend, node, and distribution
equipment. Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. was founded in 1997 and is
headquartered in Sugar Land, Texas.


APPLIED OPTOELECTRONICS: Discovery to be Completed by June 2020
---------------------------------------------------------------
Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that fact
discovery in the consolidated "Abouzied" and "Ludwig" class action
suit is scheduled to be completed by June 1, 2020.

On August 5, 2017, a lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court
for the Southern District of Texas against the Company and two of
its officers in Mona Abouzied v. Applied Optoelectronics, Inc.,
Chih-Hsiang (Thompson) Lin, and Stefan J. Murry, et al., Case No.
4:17-cv-02399.

The complaint in this matter seeks class action status on behalf of
the Company's shareholders, alleging violations of Sections 10(b)
and 20(a) of the Exchange Act against the Company, its chief
executive officer, and its chief financial officer, arising out of
its announcement on August 3, 2017 that "we see softer than
expected demand for our 40G solutions with one of our large
customers that will offset the sequential growth and increased
demand we expect in 100G."

A second, related action was filed by Plaintiff Chad Ludwig on
August 16, 2017 (Case No. 4:17-cv-02512) in the Southern District
of Texas.

The two cases were consolidated before Judge Vanessa D. Gilmore. On
January 22, 2018, the court appointed Lawrence Rougier as Lead
Plaintiff and Levi & Korinsky LLP as Lead Counsel.

Lead Plaintiff filed an amended consolidated class action complaint
on March 6, 2018. The amended complaint requests unspecified
damages and other relief.

The Company filed a motion to dismiss on April 4, 2018, which was
denied on March 28, 2019.

The Company disputes the allegations, and intends to continue to
vigorously defend against these claims.  

On May 15, 2019, Lead Plaintiff filed a motion for leave to amend
the consolidated class action complaint for the purpose of adding
named Plaintiffs Richard Hamilton, Kenneth X. Luthy, Roy H. Cetlin,
and John Kugel (together with Lead Plaintiff Lawrence Rougier,
"Plaintiffs") to the case. The court granted the motion on May 16,
2019.

The substantive allegations in the Plaintiffs' operative second
amended consolidated class action complaint remain unchanged. On
May 28, 2019, Plaintiffs filed a motion seeking to certify the case
as a class action pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23
and seeking appointment of Plaintiffs as class representatives and
Levi & Korsinsky as class counsel.

On July 12, 2019, the Company filed a response in opposition to the
motion for class certification, and on August 26, 2019, Plaintiffs
filed their Reply Brief.

The Court has not yet ruled on the pending motion for class
certification.  

The case is currently in the discovery phase, and fact discovery is
scheduled to be completed by June 1, 2020.  

Applied Optoelectronics said, "At this stage, we are not yet able
to determine the likelihood of loss, if any, arising from this
matter."

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

AVENTURA CAFE: Aguilar Seeks to Recover Unpaid Wages Under FLSA
---------------------------------------------------------------
KATHERINE AGUILAR v. AVENTURA CAFE CORP., a Florida Corporation,
and ALEKSANDAR REDIC, individually, Case No. 1:19-cv-24546-XXXX
(S.D. Fla., Nov. 2, 2019), is brought on behalf of the Plaintiff
and all other similarly situated employees at the Defendants'
restaurant seeking to recover compensation and other relief under
the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Ms. Aguilar, a former employee of the Defendants, alleges that
during her employment, the Defendants claimed a 'tip-credit' for
her and others, and paid these employees below the statutorily
required minimum wage under the FLSA.  She contends that the
Defendants failed to comply with the 'tip-credit' requirements
pursuant to the FLSA by including floor supervisors and cashiers as
'tipped' employees that received a portion of her tips.

The Defendants operate a restaurant in Miami, Florida, under the
name Aventura Cafe.[BN]

AZZ INC: Glancy Prongay Files Securities Class Action in Texas
--------------------------------------------------------------
Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP ("GPM") disclosed that it has filed a
class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the
Northern District of Texas captioned Atayi v. AZZ Inc., et al.,
(Case No. 4:19-cv-00928), on behalf of persons and entities that
purchased or otherwise acquired AZZ Inc. (NYSE: AZZ) ("AZZ" or the
"Company") securities between July 3, 2018 and October 8, 2019,
inclusive (the "Class Period").

Plaintiff pursues claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").

Investors are hereby notified that they have 60 days from November
5, 2019, the date of this notice to move the Court to serve as lead
plaintiff in this action.

On May 17, 2019, after the market closed, AZZ disclosed a material
weakness in its internal control over financial reporting related
to preparation and review of revenue reconciliations after adopting
a new revenue recognition standard.

On May 20, 2019, before the market opened, AZZ announced that it
had replaced its independent auditor, BDO US, LLP, with Grant
Thornton LLP.

On this news, the Company's stock price fell $1.21, nearly 3%, to
close at $43.35 per share on May 20, 2019, thereby injuring
investors.

On October 8, 2019, AZZ delayed its second quarter 2020 financial
results "to allow the Company additional time to complete the
review of the Form 10-Q for its fiscal year 2020 second quarter
ended August 31, 2019."

On this news, the Company's stock price fell $5.89, nearly 14%, to
close at $37.12 per share on October 8, 2019, thereby injuring
investors further.

On October 25, 2019, AZZ announced that its Chief Accounting
Officer "will leave the Company effective October 31, 2019."

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout
the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or
misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material
adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and
prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to
investors: (1) that the Company's internal controls over financial
reporting were not effective; (2) that the Company improperly
implemented ASC 606 which resulted in improper revenue
reconciliations; and (3) that, as a result of the foregoing,
Defendants' positive statements about the Company's business,
operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked
a reasonable basis.

If you purchased AZZ securities during the Class Period, you may
move the Court no later than 60 days from November 5, 2019, the
date of this notice to ask the Court to appoint you as lead
plaintiff. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action
at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no
action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish to
learn more about this action, or if you have any questions
concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with
respect to these matters, please contact Lesley Portnoy, Esquire,

B BRAUN MEDICAL: Emits Dangerous Ethylene Oxide, Abdelaziz Says
---------------------------------------------------------------
Mourad Abdelaziz, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated v. B. BRAUN MEDICAL INC., Case No. 191201504
(Pa. Com. Pleas, Philadelphia Cty., Dec. 10, 2019), is brought
against the Defendants for damages resulting from its dangerous and
reckless emission of Ethylene Oxide.

Ethylene Oxide is a powerful cancer-causing gas. The United States
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Toxicology
Program, the World Health Organization (WHO), and the International
Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) all classify Ethylene Oxide as
a known human carcinogen.

The Defendant's manufacturing facility in Allentown utilizes large
volumes of Ethylene Oxide gas to sterilize medical equipment. This
toxic gas is then released into the atmosphere by the Defendant in
both controlled and uncontrolled releases.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff and Class Members have
lived within the vicinity of the Defendant's Allentown plant, and
have been exposed to large volumes of toxic, cancer-causing
Ethylene Oxide gas. Although Ethylene Oxide is odorless and
colorless, and the Plaintiff and Class Members can neither see nor
smell the gas, it is in the air they breathe and all around them.
The Plaintiff and Class Members have been inhaling and consuming
large amounts of Ethylene Oxide when they brush their teeth, pet
their dogs, talk with their children about their day at school, and
throughout their daily lives.

As a result of their exposure to Ethylene Oxide emitted by the
Defendant, the Plaintiff and Class Members acquired some of the
highest cancer risks in the United States, says the complaint. The
Defendant's irresponsible and reckless conduct, and the pollution
resulting therefrom, has necessitated that the Plaintiff and Class
Members obtain medical monitoring to mitigate their increased risk
of developing cancer, including screening, monitoring, and checking
to detect any abnormalities that may be indicative of cancer, and
to ensure that latent disease processes can be immediately
identified and aggressively treated.

The Plaintiff is a citizen of Pennsylvania and lives in Lehigh
County, who has been exposed to, and inhaled, high levels of
Ethylene Oxide gas.

B. Braun designed, manufactured, packaged, labeled, marketed, sold
and/or distributed various medical devices throughout the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.[BN]

BREVARD EXTRADITIONS: Langellier Seeks to Certify Class of Agents
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Plaintiff in the lawsuit entitled KEVIN LANGELLIER, on behalf
of himself and on behalf of all others similarly situated v.
BREVARD EXTRADITIONS INC., d/b/a U.S. PRISONER TRANSPORT, Case No.
6:19-cv-01316-RBD-EJK (M.D. Fla.), seeks conditional certification
pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938.

Mr. Langellier asks the Court to conditionally certify a collective
consisting of:

    "All current and former Extradition Agents who worked for
     Defendant any time during the last three years within the
     United States who were not paid minimum wage for all hours
     worked during any workweek."

The proposed class members are non-exempt "Extradition Agents," who
worked for the Defendant in Florida, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Texas,
and Georgia.

The lawsuit is a collective action seeking to enforce the minimum
wage provisions of the FLSA.  The Plaintiff alleges that the
Defendant did not pay him and other workers minimum wage for all
hours they worked.  Instead, the Defendant paid only a flat daily
rate, along with a per diem, to them regardless of how many hours
they actually worked.  This resulted in them receiving subminimum
wage compensation for many weeks worked during the last three
years.

The Plaintiff also asks the Court to:

   -- direct the Defendant to produce, in an electronic readable
      format, to his counsel within 14 days of the Order granting
      this Motion a list containing the full names, last known
      mailing addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses
      of putative class members;

   -- authorize the counsel to send initial notice to all
      individuals whose names appear on the list produced by the
      Defendant's counsel by first-class mail;

   -- direct the Defendant to post at all of its business
      locations located a copy of the initial notice;

   -- authorize the counsel to send a follow-up notice to all
      individuals whose names appear on the list produced by the
      Defendant's counsel but who, by the 14th day prior to the
      close of the Court-approved notice period, have yet to opt
      in to the instant action; and

   -- provide all individuals whose names appear on the list
      produced by the Defendant's counsel a total of 60 days from
      the date the notices are initially mailed to file a Consent
      to Become Opt-In Plaintiff form.[CC]

BUGMAN PEST: Jeffcoat Sues Over Unpaid Minimum and Overtime Wages
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Chris Jeffcoat, Zachary Cates, individually and on behalf of others
similarly-situated v. Bugman Pest Elimination, Inc., Case No.
3:19-cv-03453-JMC (D.S.C., Dec. 11, 2019), is brought for unpaid
wages, for unpaid overtime compensation, for not paying the
Plaintiffs the federally-mandated minimum wage, for liquidated
damages, and for other relief under the Fair Labor Standards Act of
1938 and the South Carolina Payment of Wages Act.

The Plaintiffs allege that they regularly worked in excess of 40
hours per week but did not receive overtime pay as required by the
FLSA. The Defendant paid all time, including that in excess of
forty hours in a work-week, by paying 18% of what the Plaintiffs
billed daily. On some occasions during the relevant limitations
period, the Plaintiffs' pay did not meet the federally-mandated
minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, says the complaint.

The Plaintiffs were employed by the Defendant as Pest Control
Technicians.

CAPSTONE TURBINE: Awaits Final Settlement Approval in Calif. Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Capstone Turbine Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that the parties
in the consolidated California class action suit are awaiting the
court's final approval of their settlement.

Two putative securities class action complaints were filed against
the Company and certain of its current and former officers in the
United States District Court for the Central District of California
under the following captions:  David Kinney, etc. v. Capstone
Turbine, et al., No. 2:15-CV-08914 on November 16, 2015 (the
"Kinney Complaint") and Kevin M. Grooms, etc. v. Capstone Turbine,
et al., No. 2:15-CV-09155 on November 25, 2015.

The putative class in the Kinney Complaint is comprised of all
purchasers of the Company's securities between November 7, 2013 and
November 5, 2015. The Kinney Complaint alleges material
misrepresentations and omissions in public statements regarding BPC
Engineering (BPC) and the likelihood that BPC would not be able to
fulfill many legal and financial obligations to the Company. The
Kinney Complaint also alleges that the Company's financial
statements were not appropriately adjusted in light of this
situation and were not maintained in accordance with GAAP, and that
the Company lacked adequate internal controls over accounting.  

The Kinney Complaint alleges that these public statements and
accounting irregularities constituted violations by all named
defendants of Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act, and Rule 10b-5
thereunder, as well as violations of Section 20(a) of the Exchange
Act by the individual defendants.  

The Grooms Complaint makes allegations and claims that are
substantially identical to those in the Kinney Complaint, and both
complaints seek compensatory damages of an undisclosed amount.  

On January 16, 2016, several shareholders filed motions to
consolidate the Kinney and Grooms actions and for appointment as
lead plaintiff. On February 29, 2016, the Court granted the motions
to consolidate, and appointed a lead plaintiff.  

On May 6, 2016, a Consolidated Amended Complaint with allegations
and claims substantially identical to those of the Kinney Complaint
was filed in the consolidated action. The putative class period in
the Consolidated Amended Complaint is June 12, 2014 to November 5,
2015.  

Defendants filed a motion to dismiss the Consolidated Amended
Complaint on June 17, 2016. On March 10, 2017, the Court issued an
order granting Defendants' motion to dismiss in its entirety with
leave to amend. Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint on April 28,
2017. On February 9, 2018, the Court issued an Order denying
Defendants' motion to dismiss. On March 30, 2018, Defendants filed
an answer to the Consolidated Amended Complaint.

On May 17, 2018, the Court issued a scheduling order setting a
trial date of March 17, 2020. On June 26, 2018, the Court entered
an order vacating all deadlines through the end of October 2018 and
temporarily staying formal discovery and other proceedings to allow
the parties time to conduct a mediation.

The parties participated in mediation on September 24, 2018, which
did not result in a settlement. On November 16, 2018, after further
settlement discussions, the parties advised the Court that they had
reached an agreement in principle to settle the action in its
entirety.

The agreement in principle is subject to several conditions,
including the execution of a stipulation of settlement that is
satisfactory to all parties, and preliminary and final approval
from the court, among other things.

Plaintiffs filed a motion seeking preliminary approval of the
proposed settlement on April 12, 2019, and filed supplementary
declarations in support of the motion on May 2, 2019. Preliminary
approval of the settlement was granted on May 17, 2019, with a
final settlement approval hearing set for November 15, 2019.

Capstone said, "If the settlement is finalized and approved by the
Court, the Company's insurance carrier will fund the settlement
amount. The Company has not recorded any liability as of September
30, 2019 since any potential loss is not considered material as its
insurance carrier will fund the settlement amount."

services microturbine technology solutions for use in stationary
distributed power generation applications worldwide. Capstone
Turbine Corporation was founded in 1988 and is headquartered in Van
Nuys, California.


CATERPILLAR INC: Rodriguez Sues Over Biometric Data Collection
--------------------------------------------------------------
ANNASTASIA RODRIGUEZ, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated v. CATERPILLAR INC., a Delaware corporation,
Defendant, and VONACHEN SERVICES INC., an Illinois corporation,
Respondent in Discovery, Case No. 2019CH12773 (Ill. Cir., Cook
Cty., Nov. 1, 2019), accuses the Defendant of violating the
Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act by using a biometric
time-tracking system that collects, stores and uses employees'
fingerprints.

Caterpillar Inc. is a Delaware corporation operating a
manufacturing facility in Pontiac, Illinois.

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, Caterpillar uses a biometric
time-tracking system that requires workers at one of its locations
to use their fingerprints as a means of authentication, the
Plaintiff, a former employee, contends.

Vonachen Services Inc. is a corporation existing under the laws of
the State of Illinois, with its headquarters and principal place of
business in Peoria, Illinois.  Vonachen is contracted by the
Defendant to provide janitorial services, and subjects its staff to
the Defendant's time tracking system.[BN]

CORECIVIC INC: Discovery Ongoing in Grae Class Action
-----------------------------------------------------
CoreCivic, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that discovery is
ongoing in the class action suit entitled, Grae v. Corrections
Corporation of America et al., Case No. 3:16-cv-02267.

Following the release of the August 18, 2016 U.S. Department of
Justice memorandum, a purported securities class action lawsuit was
filed against the company and certain of its current and former
officers in the United States District Court for the Middle
District of Tennessee, or the District Court, captioned Grae v.
Corrections Corporation of America et al., Case No. 3:16-cv-02267.


The lawsuit is brought on behalf of a putative class of
shareholders who purchased or acquired the company's securities
between February 27, 2012 and August 17, 2016.  

In general, the lawsuit alleges that, during this timeframe, the
company's public statements were false and/or misleading regarding
the purported operational, programming, and cost efficiency factors
cited in the DOJ memorandum and, as a result, the company's stock
price was artificially inflated.  

The lawsuit alleges that the publication of the DOJ memorandum on
August 18, 2016 revealed the alleged fraud, causing the per share
price of our stock to decline, thereby causing harm to the putative
class of shareholders.

On December 18, 2017, the District Court denied the company's
motion to dismiss. On March 26, 2019, the District Court certified
the class proposed by the plaintiff.  

The United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit denied the
company's appeal of the class certification order on August 23,
2019.  

The case is currently in the fact discovery phase of litigation.

CoreCivic, Inc. is a diversified government solutions company with
the scale and experience needed to solve tough government
challenges in flexible, cost-effective ways. The company is based
in Nashville, Tennessee.


DELTA DENTAL: Dentist Group Alleges Price-Fixing
------------------------------------------------
A lawsuit against Delta Dental Insurance Company and various
affiliated entities alleges that the Defendants have engaged in the
conspiracy of allocating territories of operation within the U.S.
The Defendants are independent companies who have agreed with each
other to allocate markets into geographic areas in which they agree
not to compete. The contract, combination, or conspiracy is a per
se violation of the Sherman Act, the lawsuit contends. Its harm is
reflected in suppression of compensation below levels that would
prevail in a competitive marketplace to dentists who are members of
the Delta Dental provider network, as well as in the value and
choices of dental care available to patients who are subscribers to
the dental insurance provided by Delta Dental.

The case is captioned as, AMERICAN DENTAL ASSOCIATION, PEPPY
DENTAL, and JANIS B. MORIARTY, DMD, individually and on behalf of
all others similarly situated, Plaintiffs v. DELTA DENTAL INSURANCE
COMPANY; DELTACARE USA; DELTA USA INC.; DDPA; DELTA DENTAL

DELTA DENTAL: Faces Dickey Antitrust Suit Over Market Allocation
----------------------------------------------------------------
Dr. William Dickey, DMD, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated v. Delta Dental Insurance Company, et al., Case
No. 3:19-cv-00910-DPJ-FKB (S.D. Miss., Dec. 11, 2019), is brought
on behalf of dental providers to enjoin an ongoing conspiracy
between and among individual plans and their association, the Delta
Dental Plans Association, to allocate markets and geographic
territories in violation of the prohibitions of the Sherman Act and
Mississippi law.

The Defendants are Delta Dental Insurance Company; DeltaCare USA;
Delta USA Inc.; Delta Dental Plans Association; Delta Dental
Insurance Company Alabama; Delta Dental of Alaska; Delta Dental of
Arizona; Delta Dental of Arkansas; Delta Dental of California;
Delta Dental of Colorado; Delta Dental of Connecticut; Delta Dental
of Delaware; Delta Dental of the District of Columbia; Delta Dental
of Florida; Delta Dental Insurance Company-Georgia; Hawaii Dental
Service; Delta Dental of Idaho; Delta Dental of Illinois; Delta
Dental of Indiana; Delta Dental of Iowa; Delta Dental of Kansas;
Delta Dental of Kentucky; Delta Dental Insurance
Company–Louisiana; Delta Dental of Maryland; Delta Dental of
Massachusetts; Delta Dental of Michigan; Delta Dental of Minnesota;
Delta Dental Insurance Company-Mississippi; Delta Dental of
Missouri; Delta Dental Insurance Company–Montana; Delta Dental of
Nebraska; Delta Dental Insurance Company-Nevada; Delta Dental of
New Jersey; Delta Dental of New Mexico; Delta Dental of New York;
Delta Dental of North Carolina; Delta Dental of North Dakota;
Northeast Delta Dental (of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont); Delta
Dental of Ohio; Delta Dental of Oklahoma; Delta Dental of Oregon;
Delta Dental of Pennsylvania; Delta Dental of Puerto Rico; Delta
Dental of Rhode Island; Delta Dental of South Carolina; Delta
Dental of South Dakota; Delta Dental of Tennessee; Delta Dental
Insurance Company-Texas; Delta Dental Insurance Company-Utah; Delta
Dental of Virginia; Delta Dental of Washington; Delta Dental of
West Virginia; Delta Dental of Wisconsin; and Delta Dental of
Wyoming.

The Plaintiff alleges that the Defendants have entered into a
horizontal market allocation agreement that is per se illegal under
the antitrust laws. The Antitrust Division of the Department of
Justice defines per se illegal market division as follows: "Market
division or allocation schemes are agreements in which competitors
divide markets among themselves." In such schemes, competing firms
allocate specific customers or types of customers, products, or
territories among themselves.

The Defendant Plans are potential competitors, who have agreed to
allocate exclusive geographic markets, the Plaintiff avers. The
Defendant Plans formalized and enforced this territorial market
allocation scheme by means of the license agreements issued by
Defendant DDPA. These license agreements limit and restrict the
ability of Defendant Plans to compete outside of their respective
territorial markets.

The individual Plans have agreed not to compete against one another
in their allocated market territories, which insulates individual
Plans from competition in those areas, according to the complaint.
This entrenches and perpetuates the dominant market position that
each of them has historically enjoyed in their allocated market
territories. Their market power is the direct result of the illegal
conspiracy to divide and allocate markets unlawfully. These
restrictions, which have been followed by individual Plans, prevent
competition that would otherwise occur among the Plans. The Plans
have recognized that the brand restrictions curtail opportunities
for growth in underserved regions of other states.

The harm from the Defendants' market allocation is reflected in
suppression of compensation below levels that would prevail in a
competitive marketplace to dental providers who are members of the
Delta Dental provider network. As a result of Defendants'
agreed-upon territorial restraints, Delta Dental's compensation to
dental service providers was collusively and unlawfully suppressed
below the level that would prevail in a competitive marketplace,
says the complaint.

Plaintiff William Dickey, DMD, is a dental services provider and a
citizen of the state of Mississippi, who provided dental goods and
services to consumers insured by Delta Dental pursuant to his
in-network contract with the Delta Dental Insurance Company.

The Delta Dental State Insurers are predominately not-for-profit
entities that provide insurance plans for dental goods and services
in their respective states or multi-state areas.[BN]

ENERGY TRANSFER: Trial in Suit over Regency Merger Deal Ongoing
---------------------------------------------------------------
Trial is ongoing in the class action suit related to the merger
deal between Regency Energy Partners LP and Energy Transfer
Operating, L.P., ETO said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2019.

Purported Regency unitholders filed lawsuits in state and federal
courts in Dallas and Delaware asserting claims relating to the
Regency-ETO merger. All but one Regency Merger-related lawsuits
have been dismissed.

On June 10, 2015, Adrian Dieckman, a purported Regency unitholder,
filed a class action complaint in the Court of Chancery of the
State of Delaware (the "Regency Merger Litigation"), on behalf of
Regency's common unitholders against Regency GP LP, Regency GP LLC,
Energy Transfer LP (ET), ETO, Energy Transfer Partners GP, L.P.
(ETP GP), and the members of Regency's board of directors
("Defendants").

The Regency Merger Litigation alleges that the Regency Merger
breached the Regency partnership agreement because Regency's
conflicts committee was not properly formed, and the Regency Merger
was not approved in good faith or fair to Regency.

On March 29, 2016, the Delaware Court of Chancery granted the
defendants' motion to dismiss the lawsuit in its entirety. Dieckman
appealed. On January 20, 2017, the Delaware Supreme Court reversed
the judgment of the Court of Chancery.

On May 5, 2017, Plaintiff filed an Amended Verified Class Action
Complaint. The defendants then filed Motions to Dismiss the Amended
Complaint and a Motion to Stay Discovery on May 19, 2017.

On February 20, 2018, the Court of Chancery issued an Order
granting in part and denying in part the motions to dismiss,
dismissing the claims against all defendants other than Regency GP
LP and Regency GP LLC (the "Regency Defendants").

On March 6, 2018, the Regency Defendants filed their Answer to
Plaintiff's Verified Amended Class Action Complaint. On April 26,
2019, the Court of Chancery granted Dieckman's unopposed motion for
class certification.

On May 14, 2019, the Regency Defendants filed a motion for summary
judgment arguing that Dieckman's claims fail because the Regency
Defendants relied on the advice of their financial advisor in
approving the Regency Merger.

Also on May 14, 2019, Dieckman filed a motion for partial summary
judgment arguing, among other things, that Regency's conflicts
committee was not properly formed.

On October 29, 2019, the court granted Plaintiff's summary judgment
motion, holding that Regency failed (1) to form a valid conflicts
committee such that Regency failed to satisfy the Special Approval
safe harbor in connection with the merger, and (2) to issue a proxy
that was not materially misleading such that Regency failed to
satisfy the Unitholder Approval safe harbor in connection with the
merger.

The court denied Defendants' summary judgment motion which argued
that Defendants approved the merger in good faith because they
relied upon the fairness opinion of an investment bank. The court
held that fact questions existed regarding whether Defendants
actually relied upon the fairness opinion given by JP Morgan when
voting in favor of the merger. Trial is currently set for December
10-16, 2019.

Energy Transfer said, "The Regency Defendants cannot predict the
outcome of the Regency Merger Litigation or any lawsuits that might
be filed subsequent to the date of this filing; nor can the Regency
Defendants predict the amount of time and expense that will be
required to resolve the Regency Merger Litigation. The Regency
Defendants believe the Regency Merger Litigation is without merit
and intend to vigorously defend against it and any others that may
be filed in connection with the Regency Merger."

Energy Transfer Operating, L.P. engages in the natural gas
midstream, and intrastate transportation and storage businesses in
the United States. The company was formerly known as Energy
Transfer Partners, L.P. and changed its name to Energy Transfer
Operating, L.P. in October 2018. Energy Transfer Operating, L.P.
was founded in 1995 and is based in Dallas, Texas. Energy Transfer
Operating, L.P. operates as a subsidiary of Energy Transfer LP.

LEXICON PHARMACEUTICALS: Manopla Class Action Ongoing
-----------------------------------------------------
Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that the company
continues to defend a class action suit entitled, Daniel Manopla v.
Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Lonnel Coats, Jeffrey L. Wade and
Pablo Lapuerta, M.D.

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

A first amended complaint was filed on July 30, 2019 and Lexicon
filed a motion to dismiss such first amended complaint on September
30, 2019. The lawsuit purports to be a class action brought on
behalf of purchasers of the Company's securities during the period
from March 11, 2016 through July 29, 2019.

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

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

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

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

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


LHC GROUP: Bid to Dismiss Consolidated Rosenblatt Suit Pending
--------------------------------------------------------------
LHC Group, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that the company's
motion to dismiss the consolidated complaint and motion to strike
the affidavit attached to the consolidated complaint remain
pending.

On January 18, 2018, Jordan Rosenblatt, a purported shareholder of
Almost Family filed a complaint for violations of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 in the United States District Court for the
Western District of Kentucky, styled Rosenblatt v. Almost Family,
Inc., et al., Case No. 3:18-cv-40-TBR (the "Rosenblatt Action").

The Rosenblatt Action was filed against the Company, Almost Family,
Almost Family's board of directors, and Merger Sub. The complaint
in the Rosenblatt Action asserts, among other things, that the Form
S-4 Registration Statement filed on December 21, 2017 in connection
with the Merger contained false and misleading statements with
respect to the Merger. The Rosenblatt Action sought, among other
things, an injunction enjoining the Merger from closing and an
award of attorneys’ fees and costs.

In addition to the Rosenblatt Action, two additional complaints
were filed against Almost Family in the United States District
Court for the District of Delaware (the "Delaware Actions")
alleging similar violations as the Rosenblatt Action.

These Delaware Actions also sought, among other things, to enjoin
both the vote of the Almost Family stockholders with respect to the
Merger and the closing of the Merger, monetary damages, and an
award of attorneys' fees and costs from Almost Family.

On February 22, 2018, plaintiffs in the Delaware Actions moved for
a preliminary injunction to enjoin the merger of Almost Family and
Merger Sub. Then, on March 2, 2018, the Delaware Actions were
transferred to the United States District Court for the Western
District of Kentucky.

Shortly thereafter, on March 12, 2018, Almost Family, the Company,
and Merger Sub opposed the plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary
injunction, and the court heard oral argument on the plaintiffs'
motion for a preliminary injunction on March 19, 2018. On March 22,
2018, the court denied plaintiffs' motion for preliminary
injunction.

The next day, on March 23, 2018, one of the plaintiffs in the
Delaware Actions moved to consolidate the Delaware Actions with the
Rosenblatt Action and for the appointment of a lead plaintiff.

On December 19, 2018, the Court granted the motion to consolidate,
appointed Leonard Stein, a purported Almost Family shareholder, as
the Lead Plaintiff, and approved Stein's selection of Lead
Counsel.

On February 1, 2019, Lead Plaintiff filed his Consolidated Amended
Class Action Complaint (the "Consolidated Complaint").

The Consolidated Complaint asserts claims against Almost Family,
the Company and Almost Family's board of directors for violations
of Section 14(a) of the 1934 Act in connection with the
dissemination of the Company's and Almost Family's Proxy Statement
concerning the Merger, and asserts breach of fiduciary duty claims
and claims for violations of Section 20(a) of the 1934 Act against
Almost Family's former board of directors.

The Consolidated Complaint seeks, among other things, monetary
damages and an award of attorneys' fees and costs.

On April 12, 2019, the Company moved to dismiss the Consolidated
Complaint and filed a motion to strike an affidavit attached to the
Consolidated Complaint. Lead Plaintiff opposed the Company's
motions on May 28, 2019, and the Company submitted reply briefs in
support of its motions on June 19, 2019. The Company's motions are
currently pending before the court.

LHC Group said, "We believe that the claims asserted in these
lawsuits are entirely without merit and intend to defend these
lawsuits vigorously."

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

LHC Group, Inc., a health care provider, specializes in the
post-acute continuum of care primarily for Medicare beneficiaries
in the United States. The company was founded in 1994 and is based
in Lafayette, Louisiana.


MARKOFF LAW: Morales Seeks Certification of Class Under Damasco
---------------------------------------------------------------
Luis Morales moves the Court to certify the class described in the
complaint of the lawsuit styled LUIS MORALES, Individually and on
Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. MARKOFF LAW, LLC and
SNAP-ON CREDIT CORPORATION, Case No. 2:19-cv-01815 (E.D. Wisc.(E.D.
Wisc.), and further asks that the Court both stay the motion for
class certification and to grant the Plaintiff (and the Defendants)
relief from the Local Rules setting automatic briefing schedules
and requiring briefs and supporting material to be filed with the
Motion.

Dicta in the Supreme Court's decision in Campbell-Ewald Co. v.
Gomez, left open the possibility that a defendant facing a class
action complaint could moot a class representative's case by
depositing funds equal to or in excess of the maximum value of the
plaintiff's individual claim with the court and having the court
enter judgment in the plaintiff's favor prior to the filing of a
class certification motion, the Plaintiff asserts, citing
Campbell-Ewald Co. v. Gomez, 136 S. Ct. 663, 672 (2016).

To avoid the risk of a defendant mooting a putative class
representative's individual stake in the litigation, the Seventh
Circuit instructed plaintiffs to file a certification motion with
the complaint, along with a motion to stay briefing on the
certification motion.  Damasco v. Clearwire Corp., 662 F.3d 891,
896 (7th Cir. 2011), overruled on other grounds, Chapman v. First
Index, Inc., 796 F.3d 783, 787 (7th Cir. 2015) ("The pendency of
that motion [for class certification] protects a putative class
from attempts to buy off the named plaintiffs.").

While the Seventh Circuit has held that the specific procedure
described in Campbell-Ewald cannot force the individual settlement
of a class representative's claims, the same decision cautions that
other methods may prevent a plaintiff from representing a class,
the Plaintiff tells the Court, citing Fulton Dental, LLC v. Bisco,
Inc., No. 16-3574, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 10839 *9-10 (7th Cir. June
20, 2017).  The Plaintiff asserts that one defendant has attempted
a similar tactic by sending a certified check to the proposed class
representative. Bonin v. CBS Radio, Inc., No. 16-cv-674-CNC (E.D.
Wis.); see also Severns v. Eastern Account Systems of Connecticut,
Inc., Case No. 15-cv-1168, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23164 (E.D. Wis.
Feb. 24, 2016).

The Plaintiff is obligated to move for class certification to
protect the interests of the putative class, the Plaintiff
contends.

As the Motion to certify a class is a placeholder motion as
described in Damasco, the parties and the Court should not be
burdened with unnecessary paperwork and the resulting expense when
short motion to certify and stay should suffice until an amended
motion is filed, the Plaintiff contends.

The Plaintiff also asks to be appointed as class representative,
and for the appointment of Ademi & O'Reilly, LLP, as class
counsel.[CC]

MEDICINES COMPANY: Faces Kent Securities Suit Over Novartis Sale
----------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Kent, individually and On Behalf of All Others Similarly
Situated v. THE MEDICINES COMPANY, ALEXANDER J. DENNER, GENO J.
GERMANO, JOHN C. KELLY, CLIVE MEANWELL, PARIS PANAYIOTOPOULOS,
SARAH J. SCHLESINGER, MARK TIMNEY, NOVARTIS AG, and MEDUSA MERGER
CORPORATION, Case No. 1:19-cv-02248-UNA (D. Del., Dec. 10, 2019),
stems from a proposed transaction, pursuant to which the Company
will be acquired by Novartis AG and Medusa Merger Corporation.

On November 23, 2019, Medicines Company's Board of Directors caused
the Company to enter into an agreement and plan of merger with
Novartis. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub
commenced a tender offer to purchase all of Medicines Company's
outstanding common stock for $85.00 per share in cash. The Tender
Offer is set to expire on January 3, 2020.

On December 5, 2019, the Defendants filed a
Solicitation/Recommendation Statement with the United States
Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Proposed
Transaction. The Plaintiff asserts that the Solicitation Statement
omits material information with respect to the Proposed
Transaction, which renders the Solicitation Statement false and
misleading. Accordingly, the Plaintiff alleges that the Defendants
violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 in connection with the
Solicitation Statement.

The Solicitation Statement omits material information regarding the
Company's financial projections, and fails to disclose: (i) all
line items used to calculate (a) EBIT, (b) EBITDA, and (c)
unlevered free cash flow; and (ii) a reconciliation of all non-GAAP
to GAAP metrics, according to the Plaintiff. The Solicitation
Statement also omits material information regarding the analyses
performed by the Company's financial advisors in connection with
the Proposed Transaction, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and J.P. Morgan
Securities LLC, says the complaint.

The Plaintiff, who owns Medicines Company common stock, contends
that the omissions in the Solicitation Statement are material in
that a reasonable shareholder like him will consider them important
in deciding whether to tender his/her shares in connection with the
Proposed Transaction. He adds that the omissions in the
Solicitation Statement are material to him and the proposed class,
and they will be deprived of their entitlement to make a fully
informed decision with respect to the
Proposed Transaction if such misrepresentations and omissions are
not corrected prior to the expiration of the tender offer.

Medicines Company is a biopharmaceutical company that focuses on
atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.[BN]

------------------------------------------------------------
LOUIS ADEYEMI, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated, Plaintiff v. NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION;
and VILLANOVA UNIVERSITY, Defendants, Case No.
1:19-cv-04655-TWP-TAB (S.D. Ind., Nov. 22, 2019) is an action to
obtain redress for injuries sustained as a result of the
Defendants' reckless disregard for the health and safety of
generations of Villanova student-athletes.

The Plaintiff alleges in the complaint that despite knowing for

experienced, the Defendants failed to implement adequate procedures
to protect the Plaintiff and other Villanova football players from
the long-term dangers associated with them. They did so knowingly
and for profit.

As a direct result of the Defendants' acts and omissions, Plaintiff
and countless former Villanova football players suffered and
continue to suffer brain and other neurocognitive injuries.

NEW BALANCE: Matzura Sues Over Blind-Inaccessible Gift Cards
------------------------------------------------------------
Steven Matzura, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated v. NEW BALANCE ATHLETICS, INC., Case No. 1:19-cv-11344-RA
(S.D.N.Y., Dec. 11, 2019), is brought against the Defendant for its
failure to sell store gift cards to consumers that contain writing
in Braille and to be fully accessible to and independently usable
by the Plaintiff and other blind or visually-impaired people.

The Defendant's denial of full and equal access to its store gift
cards, and therefore denial of its products and services offered
thereby and in conjunction with its physical locations, is a
violation of his rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act,
the Plaintiff alleges. Because the Defendant's store gift cards are
not equally accessible to blind and visually-impaired consumers, it
violates the ADA, says the complaint.

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

The Plaintiff is a visually-impaired and legally blind person who
requires Braille, which is a tactile writing system, to read
written material, including books, signs, store gift cards, credit
cards, etc.

New Balance operates multiple retail locations in the State of New
York and is one of the largest retailers in the world.[BN]

brought to recover unpaid overtime wages and other damages from the
Defendants under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The Plaintiff and others regularly worked more than 40 hours a week
but the Defendant did not pay these workers overtime as require by
the FLSA, the Plaintiff alleges. Instead, the Defendant improperly
classified the Plaintiff and other workers similarly situated to
him as independent contractors and paid them a flat amount for each
day worked without overtime compensation. The Plaintiff and the
Putative Class Members never received a guaranteed salary, says the
complaint.

The Plaintiff worked for the Defendant as a Welding Inspector from

ORMAT TECHNOLOGIES: Bid to Dismiss Costas Class Suit Pending
------------------------------------------------------------
Ormat Technologies, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that the motion seeking
dismissal of the class action initiated by Mac Costas remains
pending.

On June 11, 2018, a putative class action was filed by Mac Costas
on behalf of alleged shareholders that purchased or acquired the
Company's ordinary shares between August 8, 2017 and May 15, 2018
was commenced in the United States District Court for the District
of Nevada against the Company and its Chief Executive Officer and
Chief Financial Officer.  

The complaint asserts claim against all defendants pursuant to
Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended,
and Rule 10b-5 thereunder and against its officers pursuant to
Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act.  

The complaint alleges that the Company's Form 10-K for the years
ended December 31, 2016 and 2017, and Form 10-Qs for each of the
quarters in the nine months ended September 30, 2017 contained
material misstatements or omissions, among other things, with
respect to the Company's tax provisions and the effectiveness of
its internal control over financial reporting, and that, as a
result of such alleged misstatements and omissions, the plaintiffs
suffered damages.

Following the Mac Costas filing and in accordance with the terms of
the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 ("PSLRA"), a
number of law firms filed applications on behalf of entities
purporting to hold shares in the Company, seeking to be appointed
as lead plaintiff and lead counsel in the action.

On March 12, 2019 the court appointed Phoenix Insurance Company
Ltd. as lead plaintiff and approved their selection of lead
counsel.

Pursuant to a scheduling stipulation entered between the parties,
Phoenix Insurance timely filed its consolidated amended complaint,
and the Company has timely filed its motion to dismiss. Motion to
dismiss was timely filed on July 12, 2019 and has been fully
briefed. On August 26, 2019 defendants filed their opposition brief
and on September 25, 2019 defendants filed their reply. Oral
arguments are scheduled before the court on November 18, 2019.

Ormat said, "The Company believes that it has valid defenses under
law and intends to defend itself vigorously."

Ormat Technologies, Inc. engages in the geothermal and recovered
energy power business in the United States, Indonesia, Kenya,
Turkey, Chile, Guatemala, New Zealand, and internationally. The
company operates through three segments: Electricity, Product, and
Other. Ormat Technologies, Inc. was founded in 1965 and is based in

ORMAT TECHNOLOGIES: Class Certification Bid in Riche Suit Granted
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Ormat Technologies, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that the Delaware
Chancery Court has granted the plaintiff's application for class
certification in the lawsuit entitled, Riche v. Pappas, et al.,
Case No. 2018-0177 (Del. Ch., Mar. 12, 2018).

Following the announcement of the Company's acquisition of U.S.
Geothermal Inc. ("USG"), a number of putative shareholder class
action complaints were initially filed on behalf of USG
shareholders between March 8, 2018 and March 30, 2018 against USG
and the individual members of the USG board of directors.  

All of the purported class action suits filed in Federal Court in
Idaho have been voluntarily dismissed.

The single remaining class action complaint is a purported class
action filed in the Delaware Chancery Court, entitled Riche v.
Pappas, et al., Case No. 2018-0177 (Del. Ch., Mar. 12, 2018).

An amended complaint was filed on May 24, 2018 under seal, under a
confidentiality agreement that was executed by plaintiff.  The
amended Riche complaint alleges state law claims for breach of
fiduciary duty against former USG directors and seeks post-closing
damages.

On September 9, 2019 the Delaware Chancery Court granted the
plaintiff's application for class certification.

The Company believes that it has valid defenses under law and
intends to defend itself vigorously.

PACIFIC BIOSCIENCES: $300,000 Accrued to Settle Class Suits
-----------------------------------------------------------
Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q
Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
November 7, 2019, for the quarterly period ended September 30,
2019, that the company accrued a total amount of $300,000 as of
September 30, 2019, in connection with its settlement agreement for
the five merger-related lawsuits filed in 2018 and the first
quarter of 2019.

In connection with the proposed acquisition of the company by
Illumina, Inc., five lawsuits were filed, with each lawsuit naming
the company and its directors as defendants.

Three putative class action complaints, captioned Wang v. Pacific
Biosciences of California, Inc., et al., No. 3:18-cv-7450 (N.D.
Cal.), Morrison v. Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc., et al.,
No. 3:18-cv-7654 (N.D. Cal.), and Speiser v. Pacific Biosciences of
California, Inc., et al., No. 3:19-cv-0072 (N.D. Cal.), were filed
in the United States District Court for the Northern District of
California on December 11, 2018, December 20, 2018, and January 4,
2019, respectively.

A fourth putative class action complaint, captioned Rosenblatt v.
Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc., et al., No. 1:18-cv-2005
(D. Del.), was filed in the United States District Court for the
District of Delaware on December 18, 2018.

An individual complaint, captioned Washington v. Pacific
Biosciences of California, Inc., et al., No. 5:18-cv-7614 (N.D.
Cal.), was filed in the United States District Court for the
Northern District of California on December 19, 2018. Each of these
lawsuits asserted claims under Section 14(a) and Section 20(a) of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 in connection with the
disclosures contained in the company's preliminary proxy statement
on Schedule 14A, filed with the Securities Exchange Commission (the
"SEC") on December 5, 2018, the company's definitive proxy
statement on Schedule 14A, filed with the SEC on December 18, 2018,
or both.

The complaints sought a variety of equitable and injunctive relief
including, among other things, enjoining the consummation of the
acquisition and awarding the plaintiffs costs and attorneys' fees.

Although the company's management believed that the claims were
without merit, the company agreed to make supplemental disclosures
in exchange for plaintiffs' agreement that the supplemental
disclosures would moot their claims. The company made these
supplemental disclosures in a proxy statement amendment on Schedule
14A, filed with the SEC on January 18, 2019.

On January 29, 2019, all parties to each of the lawsuits reached an
agreement pursuant to which we would pay a total of $300,000 in
attorneys' fees to the plaintiffs.

On January 29, 2019, each plaintiff filed a voluntary dismissal of
his or her lawsuit.

"As of September 30, 2019, we paid a total amount of $300,000 for
the five lawsuits filed in 2018 and the first quarter of 2019," the
company said.

PLAINS ALL AMERICAN: Dismissal in Texas Securities Suit Now Final
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The dismissal of a Texas securities class action against Plains All
American Pipeline, L.P., among other defendants, is now final after
the plaintiffs failed to seek Supreme Court review of the decision,
Plains All American Pipeline said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2019.

Two securities law class action lawsuits were filed on behalf of
certain purported investors in the Partnership and/or Plains GP
Holdings, L.P. (PAGP) against the Partnership, PAGP and/or certain
of their respective officers, directors and underwriters.

Both of these lawsuits were consolidated into a single proceeding
in the United States District Court for the Southern District of
Texas.

In general, these lawsuits alleged that the various defendants
violated securities laws by misleading investors regarding the
integrity of the Partnership's pipelines and related facilities
through false and misleading statements, omission of material facts
and concealing of the true extent of the spill.

The plaintiffs claimed unspecified damages as a result of the
reduction in value of their investments in the Partnership and
PAGP, which they attributed to the alleged wrongful acts of the
defendants. The Partnership and PAGP, and the other defendants,
denied the allegations in, and moved to dismiss these lawsuits.

On March 29, 2017, the Court ruled in the Company's favor
dismissing all claims against all defendants.

Plaintiffs refiled their complaint. On April 2, 2018, the Court
dismissed all of the refiled claims against all defendants with
prejudice. Plaintiffs appealed the dismissal, and on July 16, 2019
the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the dismissal.

The time period for a further appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court has
lapsed so this ruling is now final.

Plains All American said, "Consistent with and subject to the terms
of our governing organizational documents (and to the extent
applicable, insurance policies), we indemnified and funded the
defense costs of our officers and directors in connection with this
lawsuit; we also indemnified and funded the defense costs of our
underwriters pursuant to the terms of the underwriting agreements
we previously entered into with such underwriters."

Plains All American Pipeline, L.P., through its subsidiaries,
engages in the transportation, storage, terminalling, and marketing
of crude oil, natural gas liquids (NGL), and natural gas in the
United States and Canada. The company operates in three segments:
Transportation, Facilities, and Supply and Logistics. The company
was founded in 1998 and is based in Houston, Texas.


PLAINS ALL AMERICAN: Suits Related to Line 901 Incident Ongoing
---------------------------------------------------------------
Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7,
2019, for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that the
company continues to defend several class action suits related to
the Line 901 incident.

In May 2015, the company experienced a crude oil release from its
Las Flores to Gaviota Pipeline (Line 901) in Santa Barbara County,
California. A portion of the released crude oil reached the Pacific
Ocean at Refugio State Beach through a drainage culvert. Following
the release, the company shut down the pipeline and initiated its
emergency response plan.

A Unified Command, which included the United States Coast Guard,
the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the California Office of
Spill Prevention and Response and the Santa Barbara Office of
Emergency Management, was established for the response effort.
Clean-up and remediation operations with respect to impacted
shoreline and other areas has been determined by the Unified
Command to be complete, and the Unified Command has been
dissolved.

The company's estimate of the amount of oil spilled, based on
relevant facts, data and information, is approximately 2,934
barrels; of this amount, the company estimate that 598 barrels
reached the Pacific Ocean.

Shortly following the Line 901 incident, the company established a
claims line and encouraged any parties that were damaged by the
release to contact us to discuss their damage claims.

The company received a number of claims through the claims line and
the company has been processing those claims and making payments as
appropriate.

In addition, the company had nine class action lawsuits filed
against it, six of which have been administratively consolidated
into a single proceeding in the United States District Court for
the Central District of California.

In general, the plaintiffs are seeking to establish different
classes of claimants that have allegedly been damaged by the
release. To date, the court has certified three sub-classes of
claimants and denied certification of the other proposed sub-class.


On appeal, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the
certification of the oil-industry sub-class, so the remaining
sub-classes that have been certified include (i) commercial
fishermen who landed fish in certain specified fishing blocks in
the waters adjacent to Santa Barbara County or persons or
businesses who resold commercial seafood landed in such areas; and
(ii) beachfront property and easement owners whose properties were
oiled.

Plains All American said, "We are also defending a separate class
action lawsuit proceeding in the United States District Court for
the Central District of California brought on behalf of the Line
901 and Line 903 easement holders seeking injunctive relief as well
as compensatory damages."

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

PROVIDENCE SERVICE: Amended Complaint Filed in Patel Class Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Providence Service Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7,
2019, for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that an
amended complaint has been filed in the class action suit initiated
by Meher Patel.

On March 1, 2019, Meher Patel filed suit against the Company in the
Superior Court of the State of California, Tuolumne County, on
behalf of herself and as a class action on behalf of others
similarly situated, asserting violations under the California Labor
Code relating to the alleged failure by LogistiCare to comply with
certain applicable state wage and related employment requirements,
as well as claims of breach of contract and breach of the implied
covenant of good faith and fair dealing.  

The plaintiff seeks to recover an unspecified amount of damages and
penalties, as well as certification as a class action.

On September 6, 2019, Ms. Patel amended her complaint to add
Provado Mobile Health, a Company subsidiary, as a party to the
suit.   

Providence Service said, "No amounts have been accrued for any
potential losses under this matter, as management cannot reasonably
predict the outcome of the litigation or any potential losses. The
Company and its subsidiary intend to defend the litigation
vigorously. Although the outcome of such matter is inherently
uncertain and may be materially adverse, based on current
information, the Company does not expect the case to have a
material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial
condition or results of operations."

Services (NET Services) and Matrix Investment segments. The company

PROVIDENCE SERVICE: Former Ride Plus Driver Sues in California
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Providence Service Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7,
2019, for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that Ride
Plus is facing a putative class action suit entitled, Lynch v. Ride
Plus et al.

In Lynch v. Ride Plus et al., which is pending in the Superior
Court for the County of San Diego, California, a former Ride Plus
driver has sought to represent all Ride Plus drivers in California
on claims that they were misclassified as independent contractors
and that, among other things, they were not paid minimum wages,
overtime wages, meal period premiums and rest period premiums.

The Company has not yet been served with the complaint but intends
to vigorously defend the claims.

Providence Service said, "At this early stage in the litigation, it
is impossible to predict with any certainty whether plaintiff will
succeed in getting the court to certify a class, whether she and
the class will prevail on their claims, or what they might
recover."

REALGY LLC: Lindenbaum Sues Over Unsolicited Prerecorded Calls
--------------------------------------------------------------
Roberta Lindenbaum, individually and on behalf of all others
similarly situated v. REALGY, LLC d/b/a REALGY ENERGY SERVICES, a
Connecticut limited liability company, and JOHN DOE CORPORATION,
Case No. 1:19-cv-02862 (N.D. Ohio, Dec. 11, 2019), is brought
against the Defendants arising under the Telephone Consumer
Protection Act.

The Plaintiff files this complaint against the Defendant to: (1)
stop their practice of placing calls using "an artificial or
prerecorded voice" to the telephones of consumers nationwide
without their prior express written consent; and (2) obtain redress
for all persons injured by their conduct.

The Defendants were, and are, aware that their unsolicited
prerecorded calls were, and are, unauthorized as they fail to
obtain prior express written consent before placing those calls to
consumers, the Plaintiff alleges. Ultimately, consumers are forced
to bear the costs of receiving these unsolicited prerecorded calls.
By placing the unsolicited prerecorded calls at issue in this
Complaint, the Defendants caused the Plaintiff and the other
members of the Class actual harm and cognizable legal injury, says
the complaint.

Roberta Lindenbaum is a natural person and resident of Cuyahoga
County, Ohio.

RUDOLPH TECHNOLOGIES: MOU Reached over Dismissal of Merger Suits
----------------------------------------------------------------
Rudolph Technologies, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that the company and the
plaintiffs in the class action lawsuits challenging the Company's
merger deal with Nanometrics Incorporated have entered into a
memorandum of understanding with the intention to fully resolve and
dismiss each of the matters.

On June 23, 2019, Rudolph Technologies, Inc., a Delaware
corporation, Nanometrics Incorporated, a Delaware corporation, and
PV Equipment Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned
subsidiary of Nanometrics, entered into an Agreement and Plan of
Merger.  The Merger Agreement provides for, among other things and
subject to the satisfaction or waiver of specified conditions, the
merger of Merger Sub with and into Rudolph, with Rudolph surviving
the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Nanometrics.

Subsequent to the announcement regarding the Company's intention to
merge with Nanometrics Incorporated, five (5) complaints were filed
in August, September, and October 2019 by purported shareholders
against the Company and its current directors, with one lawsuit
including Nanometrics and PV Equipment Inc. as defendants as well.


Two of the lawsuits were filed as class action litigation in the
United States District Court for the District of Delaware --
Rosenblatt v. Rudolph Technologies, Inc., et al., (the "Rosenblatt
Action"), and Stein v. Rudolph Technologies, Inc., et al., (the "W.
Stein Action").  

The other three lawsuits were filed by individual plaintiffs, one
in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware --
Stein v. Rudolph Technologies, Inc., et al. (the "S. Stein
Action"); one in the United States District Court for the District
of New Jersey -- Parikh v. Rudolph Technologies, Inc., et al., (the
"Parikh Action"); and one in the United States District Court for
the District of Massachusetts -- Roy v. Rudolph Technologies, Inc.,
et al., (the "Roy Action").  

On October 11, 2019 the Company filed supplemental disclosures to
the definitive proxy statement originally filed on August 15, 2019.
That same day, the Company and the plaintiffs in the S. Stein,
Rosenblatt, W. Stein, and Roy Actions entered into a memorandum of
understanding with the intention to fully resolve and dismiss each
of the matters.  

Also on October 11, 2019, the Company and the plaintiff in the
Parikh Action agreed in principle that he would dismiss with
prejudice the claims asserted in that action, in return for the
Company's agreement to make the Supplemental Disclosures.  

Pursuant to these agreements, the parties will attempt to resolve
plaintiffs' counsel's claim for attorney's fees and expenses based
upon the purported benefit they believe was conferred upon Rudolph
shareholders by causing the Supplemental Disclosures to be
disseminated. The plaintiffs and their counsel have reserved their
right to file applications seeking attorney's fees and expenses and
the Company has reserved its right to oppose such fee
applications.

Rudolph Technologies, Inc. designs, develops, manufactures, and
supports defect inspection, process control metrology, and data
analysis systems and software used by semiconductor device

SPARK ENERGY: $7MM Settlement in Albrecht Case Wins Initial Okay
----------------------------------------------------------------
Spark Energy, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 6, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that the $7.0 million
class settlement in the case, Albrecht v. Oasis Power, LLC, has
received preliminary court approval.

Albrecht v. Oasis Power, LLC is a putative nationwide class action
that was filed on February 12, 2018 in the United States District
Court for the Northern District of Illinois, alleging that Oasis
made illegal prerecorded telemarketing calls, including auto-dialed
calls, to consumers' mobile phones, in violation of the Telephone
Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA") and the Illinois Automatic
Telephone Dialers Act ("ATDA").

Plaintiff sought an injunction requiring Oasis to cease all
unsolicited calling activities, an award of statutory and trebled
damages under the TCPA and the ATDA, as well as costs and
attorney's fees.

The parties have reached a class settlement on behalf of Oasis and
other affiliated brands in the amount of $7.0 million, which has
received preliminary court approval.

The Company has sought indemnity and insurance coverage from two
vendors and their carriers that worked on the telemarketing
campaigns at issue.

SPARK ENERGY: Bid for Class Cert. in Richardson Suit Due Dec. 23
----------------------------------------------------------------
Spark Energy, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 6, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that plaintiffs' motion
for class certification in the case, Richardson et al. v. Verde
Energy USA, Inc., is due on or before December 23, 2019.

Richardson et al. v. Verde Energy USA, Inc. is a purported class
action filed on November 25, 2015 in the United States District
Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania alleging that the
Verde Companies violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act
("TCPA") by placing marketing calls using an automatic telephone
dialing system ("ATDS") or a prerecorded voice to the purported
class members' cellular phones without prior express consent and by
continuing to make such calls after receiving requests for the
calls to cease.

Following discovery and dispositive motions, the Verde Companies
received a favorable ruling on summary judgment with the court
agreeing with the Verde Companies that the call system used in this
case was not an ATDS as defined by the TCPA.

Plaintiffs subsequently amended their petition eliminating their
ATDS claim and including a class based on failure to comply with
the National Do Not Call registry. As part of an agreement in
connection with the acquisition of the Verde Companies, the
original owners of the Verde Companies are handling this matter.
The parties reached a confidential settlement in this matter.

A hearing on Plaintiffs' motion for preliminary settlement approval
was held on September 23, 2019, at which the Court denied
preliminary approval. Negotiations with the Plaintiffs continue in
an effort to modify the settlement to meet the Court's concerns.

The Plaintiffs' motion for class certification is due to be filed
on or before December 23, 2019.

The Company believes it has full indemnity coverage, net of tax
benefit, for the settlement exposure in this case.

SUBARU OF AMERICA: Leon Sues Over Faulty & Dangerous Windshields
----------------------------------------------------------------
Leonardo Leon and Louie Nevarez, individually, and on behalf of a
class of other similarly situated individuals v. SUBARU OF AMERICA,
INC., Case No. 3:19-cv-02375-JLS-BGS (S.D. Cal., Dec. 11, 2019),
arises from the Defendant's manufacturing, marketing and selling of
new vehicles with defective and dangerous windshields that are
spontaneously and/or unreasonably cracking, chipping and otherwise
breaking, often within weeks or a few months of purchase.

The Plaintiffs bring their claims individually and on behalf of all
persons or entities in the United States and/or California who
purchased or leased a model year: (1) 2017-2020 Subaru Outback; (2)
2017-2020 Subaru Forester; (3) 2017-2020 Subaru Crosstrek; (4)
2017-2020 Impreza; (5) 2017-2020 Legacy; and (6) 2019-2020 Ascent,
as well as those who purchased or leased a Class Vehicle and
suffered losses as a result of the defect during the period they
possessed the vehicle.

The placement windshields provided by the Defendant and paid for by
Class Members suffer from the same defect and, therefore, are
equally defective and dangerous, the Plaintiffs say. They demand
that the Defendant accept responsibility for replacing damaged
windshields under Subaru's new vehicle warranty at no charge to
Class Members and reimburse Class Members for losses suffered as a
result of the defect.

In addition to having their personal safety and that of the public
put at risk, owners of Class Vehicles are incurring substantial
monetary losses because the Defendant refuses to replace the broken
windshields under warranty or to reimburse consumers for the broken
windshields and other losses resulting from the defect, says the
complaint.

As a direct result of the Defendant's business practices and
wrongful conduct, the Plaintiffs and Class Members have been harmed
and have suffered actual damages, including repair and replacement
costs, loss of use of their Class Vehicles, loss of the benefit of
their bargain, and costs and lost time associated with the defect
and bringing in their Class Vehicles for diagnosis and repair.

Plaintiff Leon purchased a used 2017 Subaru Legacy from Toyota of
Poway in Poway, California. Plaintiff Nevarez purchased a new 2018
Subaru Impreza Sport vehicle from a Subaru dealership Lancaster,
California.

Subaru markets and distributes automobiles throughout the United
States and is a division of the Japanese conglomerate Subaru
Corporation.[BN]

SWINGSET & TOY: Taveras Seeks Overtime Wages Under FLSA & NJSWHL
----------------------------------------------------------------
LUIS DEJESUS TAVERAS, and similarly situated individuals, Plaintiff
v. SWINGSET & TOY WAREHOUSE, INC., and all other affiliated
entities and/or joint employers, JOHN DOE CORPORATIONS, and ABEL
SANTOS, individually, Defendants, Case No. 2:19-cv-20165 (D.N.J.,
Nov. 13, 2019), seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages under the
Fair Labor Standards Act and the New Jersey State Wage and Hour
Law.

Beginning in 2010, and continuing through October 27, 2019, the
Defendants engaged in a policy and practice of requiring the Named
Plaintiff and members of the putative collective to regularly work
in excess of 40 hours per week, without providing overtime
compensation, according to the complaint.

The Plaintiff performed non-exempt merchandise delivery and
installation duties for the Defendants in New Jersey and based from
the Defendants' Bergen County, New Jersey warehouse.

The Defendants own, operate, and/or manage a wood and outdoor play
dealership from three locations in New Jersey, selling swingsets,
basketball courts, trampolines, and sheds throughout New Jersey,
the tri-state area and online. Mr. Santos managed day to day
operations, controlled the employees, pay practices and had the
power to change same, as well as the power to hire and fire
employees, set their wages, and otherwise control the terms of
employment.[BN]

T&S RESTAURANT: Mendoza Seeks to Recover Overtime Pay Under FLSA
----------------------------------------------------------------
Salvador Mendoza, on behalf of himself and others similarly
situated v. T&S RESTAURANT LLC d/b/a GRACIE'S CORNER DINER and
ANASTASIO KATSAROS, Case No. 1:19-cv-11316 (S.D.N.Y., Dec. 11,
2019), is brought against the Defendants, pursuant to the Fair
Labor Standards Act and the New York Labor Law, claiming that the
Plaintiff is entitled to recover from the Defendants: unpaid
minimum wages, unpaid overtime compensation, unpaid "spread of
hours" premium for each day his work shift exceeded 10 hours,
liquidated and statutory damages, prejudgment and post-judgment
interest, and attorneys' fees and costs.

The Plaintiff says he worked over 40 hours per week. The Plaintiff
worked in excess often 10 hours per shift. The Defendants knowingly
and willfully operated their business with a policy of not paying
Plaintiff and other similarly situated employees either the FLSA
overtime rate (of time and one-half), or the New York State
overtime rate (of time and one-half), in direct violation of the
FLSA and the NYLL, says the complaint.

The Plaintiff was hired by the Defendants to work at the Restaurant
as a non-exempt dishwasher, baker, juice maker, porter, and
occasional food delivery worker.

T&S owns and operates a restaurant doing business as "Gracie's
Comer Diner."[BN]

TERRA OILFIELD: Class of Operators Certified in Barhight Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Ronald C. Griffin approves the Joint Motion for Entry of
Stipulation of Conditional Certification and conditionally
certifies the case styled RONNIE BARHIGHT, individually and on
behalf of all others similarly situated v. TERRA OILFIELD SERVICES,
LLC, Case No. 7:19-cv-00214-DC-RCG (W.D. Tex.), as a collective
action.

The Court finds that conditional certification is appropriate and
certifies this class:

     All current and former operators or Supervisor Bs in Terra
     Oilfield Services, LLC's Water Transfer division who were
     paid by the hour in the three year-period preceding the
     Court's entry of this Order.

The Court approves conditional certification of the proposed class
as agreed to by the parties and authorizes use of the Notice and
Consent Form Text Message Notice of Collective Action attached to
the parties' Joint Stipulation.  The Defendant will provide the
Plaintiff in Excel format certain information regarding all
putative class members: full name; last known mailing address(es)
with city, state, and zip code; all known personal phone number(s);
and, only for any putative class member for whom the Defendant has
not provided a personal phone number, all known personal e-mail
addresses.

Judge Griffin authorizes the Plaintiff to issue the Notice and
Consent Form to be delivered to putative class members via first
class U.S. mail to the last known address of the putative class
members provided to the Plaintiff by the Defendant.  However, in
the event the Plaintiff determines a putative class member has
filed a notice of change of address with the United States Postal
Service's NCOALink service, the Plaintiff may only send the
first-class U.S. Mail Notice and Consent Form to the subsequent
address on file with the United States Postal Service.

The Court authorizes the Plaintiff to issue the Text Message Notice
of Collective Action, filed as Exhibit B to the Stipulation to
putative class members via text message to their respective
personal phone number(s), if any, provided to the Plaintiff by the
Defendant.  Only in the event the Defendant does not provide the
Plaintiff with a personal phone number for a putative class member,
the Plaintiff may send the Notice and Consent Form, filed as
Exhibit A to the Stipulation, to that putative class member via the
personal e-mail address(es) for such putative class member, if any,
provided to the Plaintiff by the Defendant.

Only in the event a Notice and Consent Form mailed via U.S. first
class mail is returned undelivered to any putative class member,
the Plaintiff's counsel may contact the putative class member by
telephone call to the personal phone number provided to the
Plaintiff by the Defendant, only to verify the putative class
member's mailing address(es).  In communicating with the putative
class member for the limited purpose of verifying a mailing
address, the Plaintiff's counsel must stick to the proposed script
attached to the Joint Motion as Exhibit C, and may not inquire
about any other contact information or subject other than the
current mailing address for the putative class member.

The Plaintiff is authorized to offer the putative class members the
option to consent to join this collective action through the use of
electronic signatures.

The Parties shall comply with this schedule:

   -- No later than 10 days from the date of this Order -- The
      Defendant shall provide to the Plaintiff in Excel (.xlsx)
      format the following information regarding all putative
      class members: full name; last known mailing address(es)
      with city, state, and zip code; all known personal phone
      number(s); and, for any putative class member for whom the
      Defendant has not provided a personal phone number, any
      personal e-mail addresses;

   -- Within 21 days of receiving the contact information for all
      Putative Class Members -- The Plaintiff shall send a copy
      of the Court-approved Notice and Consent Form to the
      putative class members by First Class U.S. Mail to the last
      known address provided to the Plaintiff by the Defendant or
      (if applicable) the most recent address provided for a
      putative class member by the United States Postal Service's
      NCOALink service; The Plaintiff may send the Court-approved
      Text Message Notice of Collective Action to the putative
      class members by text message to their respective last
      known personal phone number(s), if any, provided to the
      Plaintiff by the Defendant; for any putative class members
      for whom the Defendant has not provided a personal phone
      number, Plaintiff may send a copy of the Court-approved
      Notice and Consent Form to such putative class member by
      e-mail to the putative class member's personal e-mail
      address provided to the Plaintiff by the Defendant; and the
      Plaintiff may make the Notice and Consent Form available on
      a Web site containing only the Notice and Consent Form and
      permitting the return of electronic signatures on the
      Consent Form.  The Plaintiff shall not use any means to
      publicize the Web site or direct putative class members or
      anyone else to the Web site, other than as provided for in
      this Order;

   -- Within 5 days of the initial mailing of the Notice and
      Consent Forms -- The Plaintiff shall file an Advisory with
      the Court indicating the date of the initial mailing of the
      Notice and Consent Form.  Concurrently with the filing of
      the Advisory, Class Counsel shall provide the Defendant's
      counsel with a list of the putative class members to whom
      the Plaintiff sent notice, including for each such putative
      class member the date sent, method of delivery of the
      notice and the contact information used to send the notice;

   -- 60 days from the initial mailing of the Notice and Consent
      Forms to Putative Class Members -- The putative class
      members shall have 60 days from the date of mailing of the
      Notice and Consent Form to return their signed Consent
      forms to Plaintiff for filing with the Court (the "Notice
      Period");

   -- No later than 5 business days after the close of the Notice
      Period -- Plaintiff shall deactivate the Web site solely
      dedicated to disseminating notice; and

   -- No later than 15 days after the close of the Notice Period
      -- All Consents to Join shall be filed with the Court,
      provided such Consents to Join were timely signed within
      the Notice Period.

Other than as described in this Order, neither Party may send any
information relating to this lawsuit or otherwise communicate with
putative class members about matters related to this lawsuit except
to verify addresses as provided herein or respond to inquiries
initiated by putative class members, the Court says.

The Parties shall submit their joint proposed scheduling
recommendations, no later than 15 days after the close of the
Notice Period.  The Parties shall submit their proposed scheduling
recommendations no later than March 31, 2020.

Judge Griffin further rules that the Plaintiff's Motion for
Conditional Certification and Judicially-Supervised Notice Under
Section 216(b) of the Fair Labor Standards Act is denied as
moot.[CC]


TOYOTA MOTOR: Foster Sues Over Faulty Sound System in Lexus Cars
----------------------------------------------------------------
John F. Foster, on behalf of himself and all others similarly
situated v. TOYOTA MOTOR SALES, U.S.A., INC., TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH
AMERICA, INC., TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION and DOES 1 through 20,
inclusive, Case No. 4:19-cv-08094-KAW (N.D. Cal., Dec. 11, 2019),
is brought against the Defendants, pursuant to the Class Action
Fairness Act, due to a faulty sound system.

This action relates to the sound systems installed by Lexus in a
number of Lexus models. The Plaintiff alleges that the sound system
is flawed because the rear speakers transmit virtually undetectable
sound rendering them functionally useless. This issue is present in
the 2019 Lexus ES 350, and is a pervasive issue that has existed in
Lexus vehicles since at least 2010.

The sound systems affected include the "Lexus 10-Speaker Premium
Sound System." Lexus markets and warrants that the Faulty Sound
System is a premium system implying that it functions at a high
level, while in fact, due to an apparent design defect, portions of
it are functionally useless. Lexus has long known about this issue.
Customers have complained about the Faulty Sound System since at
least 2014.

The Plaintiff has notified Lexus regarding the issue and provided
Lexus with a reasonable opportunity to fix the Faulty Sound System,
but instead has been advised that the Faulty Sound System is
functioning as designed. Thus, Lexus has failed to remedy the
defect in a reasonable period of time. The Plaintiff's issues are
not unique, he has been advised by Lexus employees that other
customers have experienced the same issue, he has tested other ES
350 vehicles with the Faulty Sound System and discovered the same
issues, and there are numerous complaints online from unhappy
customers experiencing the same issue.

The Plaintiff contends that Lexus has and will continue to benefit
from its unlawful conduct--by selling more vehicles, at a higher
price, and avoiding warranty obligations--while consumers are
harmed at the point of sale as their vehicles continue to suffer
from the unremedied defects with the Faulty Sound System. Had the
Plaintiff and other proposed class members known about the defect
at the time of purchase or lease, they would not have bought or
leased vehicles with the Faulty Sound System, or would have paid
substantially less for them, says the complaint.

The Plaintiff purchased a 2019 Lexus ES 350 with a "Lexus
10-speaker Premium Sound System" on September 27, 2018.

TREEHOUSE FOODS: Continues to Defend PERS of Mississippi Class Suit
-------------------------------------------------------------------
TreeHouse Foods, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that the company
continues to defend a class action suit entitled, Public Employees'
Retirement Systems of Mississippi v. TreeHouse Foods, Inc., et al.

On November 16, 2016, a purported TreeHouse shareholder filed a
class action captioned Tarara v. TreeHouse Foods, Inc., et al.,
Case No. 1:16-cv-10632, in the United States District Court for the
Northern District of Illinois against TreeHouse and certain of its
officers.

The complaint, amended on March 24, 2017, is purportedly brought on
behalf of all purchasers of TreeHouse common stock from January 20,
2016 through and including November 2, 2016.

It asserts claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder and
seeks, among other things, damages and costs and expenses.

On December 22, 2016, another purported TreeHouse shareholder filed
an action captioned Wells v. Reed, et al., Case No. 2016-CH-16359,
in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, against TreeHouse
and certain of its officers.

This complaint, purportedly brought derivatively on behalf of
TreeHouse, asserts state law claims against certain officers for
breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, and corporate waste.

On February 7, 2017, another purported TreeHouse shareholder filed
an action captioned Lavin v. Reed, et al., Case No. 17-cv-01014, in
the Northern District of Illinois, against TreeHouse and certain of
its officers.  

This complaint is also purportedly brought derivatively on behalf
of TreeHouse, and it asserts state law claims against certain
officers for breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, abuse of
control, gross mismanagement, and corporate waste.

On February 8, 2019, another purported TreeHouse shareholder filed
an action captioned Bartelt v. Reed, et al., Case No.
1:19-cv-00835, in the United States District Court for the Northern
District of Illinois.

This complaint is purportedly brought derivatively on behalf of
TreeHouse and asserts state law claims against certain officers for
breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, abuse of control,
gross mismanagement, and corporate waste, in addition to asserting
violations of Section 14 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Finally, on June 3, 2019, another purported TreeHouse shareholder
filed an action captioned City of Ann Arbor Employees' Retirement
System v. Reed, et al., Case No. 2019-CH-06753, in the Circuit
Court of Cook County, Illinois, against TreeHouse and certain of
its officers. Like Wells, Lavin, and Bartelt, this complaint is
purportedly brought derivatively on behalf of TreeHouse and asserts
claims for contribution and indemnification, breach of fiduciary
duty, and aiding and abetting breaches of fiduciary duty.

All five complaints make substantially similar allegations (though
the amended complaint in Tarara now contains additional detail).

Essentially, the complaints allege that TreeHouse, under the
authority and control of the individual defendants: (i) made
certain false and misleading statements regarding the Company's
business, operations, and future prospects; and (ii) failed to
disclose that (a) the Company's private label business was
underperforming; (b) the Company’s Flagstone business was
underperforming; (c) the Company's acquisition strategy was
underperforming; (d) the Company had overstated its full-year 2016
guidance; and (e) TreeHouse's statements lacked reasonable basis.
The complaints allege that these actions artificially inflated the
market price of TreeHouse common stock during the class period,
thus purportedly harming investors.

The Bartelt action also includes substantially similar allegations
concerning events in 2017, and the Ann Arbor complaint also seeks
contribution from the individual defendants for losses incurred by
the company in these litigations.

The company believes that these claims are without merit and intend
to defend against them vigorously.

Since its initial docketing, the Tarara matter has been
re-captioned as Public Employees' Retirement Systems of Mississippi
v. TreeHouse Foods, Inc., et al., in accordance with the Court's
order appointing Public Employees' Retirement Systems of
Mississippi as the lead plaintiff.

On May 26, 2017, the Public Employees' defendants filed a motion to
dismiss, which the court denied on February 12, 2018. On April 12,
2018, the Public Employees' defendants filed their answer to the
amended complaint.  On April 23, 2018, the parties filed a joint
status report with the Court, which set forth a proposed discovery
and briefing schedule for the Court’s consideration.  

On July 13, 2018, lead plaintiff filed a motion to certify the
class, and defendants filed their response in opposition to the
motion to certify the class on October 8, 2018. On November 12,
2018, the parties filed an agreed motion to stay proceedings to
allow them to explore mediation. The motion was granted on November
19.

The parties thereafter engaged in mediation but failed to resolve
the dispute. On March 29, 2019, the parties resumed litigation by
filing an agreed motion for extension of time, which was granted on
April 9.

Under that schedule, lead plaintiff filed its reply class
certification brief on May 17, 2019. No hearing on class
certification has been set and the motion for class certification
remains pending.

Defendants' document production is near completion, but the parties
intend to file an agreed motion to extend all case deadlines 60
days. Assuming this motion is granted, it would move the deadline
for document discovery motions to December 17, 2019; would push
completion of fact depositions to March 10, 2020; and would require
service of expert reports by April 28, 2020. Summary judgment
briefing would occur November 2020 through January 2021.

Due to the similarity of the complaints, the parties in Wells and
Lavin entered stipulations deferring the litigation until the
earlier of (i) the court in Public Employees' entering an order
resolving defendants' anticipated motion to dismiss therein or (ii)
plaintiffs' counsel receiving notification of a settlement of
Public Employees' or until otherwise agreed to by the parties.  

On September 27, 2018, the parties in Wells and Lavin filed joint
motions for entry of agreed orders further deferring the matters in
light of the Public Employees’ Court's denial of the motion to
dismiss in February 2018.

The Wells and Lavin Courts entered the agreed orders further
deferring the matters on September 27, 2018 and October 10, 2018,
respectively. On June 25, 2019, the parties jointly moved to
consolidate the Bartelt matter with Lavin, so that it would be
subject to the Lavin deferral order. This motion was granted on
June 27, 2019, and Bartelt is now consolidated with Lavin and
deferred. There is no set status date in Lavin at this time.
Similarly, Ann Arbor was consolidated with Wells on August 13,
2019, and is now deferred. In Wells, the next status conference is
set for March 6, 2020.

TREEHOUSE FOODS: Negrete Class Suit v. Ralcorp Holdings Ongoing
---------------------------------------------------------------
TreeHouse Foods, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that the company
continues to defend a class action suit entitled, Negrete v.
Ralcorp Holdings, Inc., et al.

The Company is also party to matters challenging its wage and hour
practices.

These matters include a number of class actions consolidated under
the caption Negrete v. Ralcorp Holdings, Inc., et al, pending in
the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, in
which the plaintiffs allege a pattern of violations of California
and/or federal law at several current and former Company
manufacturing facilities across the State of California.

TreeHouse Foods said, "While the Company cannot predict with
certainty the results of this or any other legal proceeding, it
does not expect this matter to have a material adverse effect on
its financial condition, results of operations, or business."

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

TRIPLE-S MANAGEMENT: Mediation in Blue Cross Antitrust Suit Resumes
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Triple-S Management Corporation said in its Form 10-Q Report filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019,
for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2019, that parties in
the case styled In re Blue Cross Blue Shield Antitrust Litigation
have re-commenced mediation with subscribers and providers.

Triple-S Salud, Inc. (TSS) is a co-defendant with multiple Blue
Plans and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) in a
multi-district class action litigation filed by a group of
providers and subscribers on July 24, 2012 and October 1, 2012,
respectively, that has since been consolidated by the United States
District Court for the Northern District of Alabama, Southern
Division, in the case captioned In re Blue Cross Blue Shield
Association Antitrust Litigation.

Essentially, provider plaintiffs allege that the exclusive service
area requirements of the Primary License Agreements with the Blue
Plans constitute an illegal horizontal market allocation under
federal antitrust laws.

As per provider plaintiffs, the quid pro quo for said "market
allocation" is a horizontal price fixing and boycott conspiracy
implemented through BCBSA and whose benefits are allegedly derived
through the BCBSA's BlueCard/National Accounts Program.

Among the remedies sought, provider plaintiffs seek increased
compensation rates and operational changes.

In turn, subscriber plaintiffs allege that the alleged conspiracy
to allocate markets have prevented subscribers from being offered
competitive prices and resulted in higher premiums for Blue Plan
subscribers.

Subscribers seek damages for the amounts that the Blue Plan
premiums allegedly have been artificially inflated as a result of
the alleged antitrust violations. Both actions seek injunctive
relief.

Prior to consolidation, motions to dismiss were filed by several
plans, including TSS -- whose request was ultimately denied by the
court without prejudice.

On April 6, 2015, plaintiffs filed suit in the United States
District Court of Puerto Rico against TSS.

Said complaint, nonetheless, is believed not to preclude TSS'
jurisdictional arguments. Since inception, the Company has joined
BCBSA and other Blue Plans in vigorously contesting these claims.

On April 5, 2018, the United States District Court for the Northern
District of Alabama, Southern Division, issued it's ruling on the
parties' respective motions for partial summary judgment on the
standard of review applicable to plaintiffs' claims under Section 1
of the Sherman Act and subscriber plaintiffs' motion for partial
summary judgment on the Blue Plan's single entity defense.

After considering the "undisputed" facts (for summary judgment
purposes only) and evidence currently on record in the light most
favorable to defendants, the court essentially found that: (a) the
combination of Exclusive Service Areas and the National Best
Efforts Rule are subject to the Per Se standard of review; (b)
there remain genuine issues of material fact as to whether
defendants' conduct can be shielded by the "single entity" defense;
and (c) claims concerning the BlueCard Program and uncoupling rules
are due to be analyzed under the Rule of Reason standard.

On April 16, 2018, Defendants moved the Federal District Court for
the Northern District of Alabama to certify for immediate
interlocutory appeal the court's April 5, 2018 Standard of Review
Ruling.

On June 12, 2018, Hon. Judge Proctor agreed to grant Defendant's
motion for certification pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Section 1292(b).
Defendants filed their Notice of Appeal on July 12, 2018. On
December 12, 2018, the Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit
denied Defendants' petition to appeal the District Court's Standard
of Review Ruling.

The parties re-commenced mediation with subscribers on April 2019
and with providers on September 2019.

Triple-S Management Corporation, through its subsidiaries, provides
a portfolio of managed care and related products in the commercial,
Medicare, and Medicaid markets in Puerto Rico, the United States.

Insurance, and Property and Casualty Insurance. Triple-S Management
Corporation was founded in 1959 and is headquartered in San Juan,

TRIVITA INC: Fischer Seeks to End Unsolicited, Pre-Recorded Calls
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Robert Fischer, individually and on behalf of all others similarly
situated v. TRIVITA INC., an Arizona corporation, Case No.
6:19-cv-02333 (M.D. Fla., Dec. 11, 2019), seeks to stop the
Defendant from violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by
making unsolicited, pre-recorded calls to consumers, and to
otherwise obtain injunctive and monetary relief for all persons
injured by the Defendant's conduct.

the Defendant's product Nopalea. The Defendant places these
pre-recorded sales calls to consumers' phone numbers without
obtaining their prior express written consent, says the complaint.

Plaintiff. In response to this call, the Plaintiff files this
lawsuit seeking injunctive relief, requiring the Defendant to stop
making pre-recorded voice sales calls to consumers without their
consent, as well as an award of statutory damages to the members of
the Class and costs.

WOLVERINE WORLD: Consolidated Class Suit in Michigan Ongoing
------------------------------------------------------------
Wolverine World Wide, Inc. said in its Form 10-Q Report filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019, for the
quarterly period ended September 28, 2019, that the company
continues to defend a consolidated class action suit before the
U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan.

Individual lawsuits and three putative class action lawsuits have
been filed against the Company that raise a variety of claims,
including claims related to property, remediation, and human health
effects.

The three putative class action lawsuits were subsequently refiled
in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan as
a single consolidated putative class action lawsuit.

The 3M Company, which sold Scotchgard containing per- and
poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) to the Company, has been named
as a co-defendant in the individual lawsuits and consolidated
putative class action lawsuit.

In addition, the current owner of a former landfill and gravel
mining operation has sued the Company seeking damages and cost
recovery for property damage allegedly caused by the Company’s
disposal of tannery waste containing PFAS (collectively with the
individual lawsuits and putative class action, the "Litigation
Matters").

Wolverine said, "Assessing potential liability with respect to the
Litigation Matters at this time, however, is difficult. The
Litigation Matters are in various stages of discovery and related
motions. In addition, there is minimal direct and relevant
precedent for these types of claims related to PFAS, and the
science regarding the human health effects of PFAS exposure in the
environment remains inconclusive and inconsistent, thereby creating
additional uncertainties. Due to these factors, combined with the
complexities and uncertainties of litigation, the Company is unable
to conclude that adverse verdicts resulting from the Litigation
Matters are probable, and therefore no amounts are currently
reserved for these claims. The Company intends to continue to
vigorously defend itself against these claims."

Wolverine World Wide, Inc. manufactures and markets branded
footwear and performance leathers. The Company's products include
shoes, slippers, occupational and safety footwear, and performance
outdoor footwear, among others. The company is based in Rockford,
Michigan.


YALE TILE: Soto Seeks Damages for Violations of FLSA and NYLL
-------------------------------------------------------------
VICTOR GONZALEZ SOTO, BAIRON ALVAREZ CARO, and ROBERTO VARGAS,
individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated,
Plaintiffs v. YALE TILE & STONE LLC, and FRANCESCO LORENTI, and
DEMANDED ANTHONY DATTOLO, as individuals, Defendants, Case No.
2:19-cv-06407 (E.D.N.Y., Nov. 13, 2019), seeks to recover
compensatory damages and liquidated damages in an amount exceeding
$100,000 for the Defendants' violations of the Fair Labor Standards
Act and the New York Labor Law.

Mr. Soto was employed from October 2015 until June 2019 by the
Defendants at Yale Tile. Mr. while Caro was employed from November
2015 until June 2019 and Mr. Vargas was employed from August 2015
until June 2019. The Plaintiffs have been employed by the
Defendants as assistants, stone workers, and installers, or other
similarly titled personnel with substantially similar job
requirements and pay provisions, who were performing the same sort
of functions for the Defendants, other than the executive and
management. The Plaintiffs say they worked approximately 48 hours
or more per week during their employment.

The Defendants willfully failed to post in a conspicuous place at
the location of their employment notices of the minimum wage and
overtime wage requirements as required by both the NYLL and the
FLSA, the lawsuit says.

Yale Tile & Stone LLC are retailers of exquisite granite, marble,
mosaics, limestone, travertine, slate, specialty tiles, custom
