Villanueva, et al. v. Liberty Acquisitions Servicing, LLC

Re Defendants: Liberty Holding, LLC, Javlin One, LLC, and Javlin Capital, LLC

Plaintiffs allege that Liberty Acquisitions Servicing, LLC (“LAS”) obtained judgments in violation of federal law (the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) by filing a lawsuit, serving the lawsuit, and entering a judgment against debtors, where the lawsuit and judgment was based on non-payment of a debt originating from U.S. Bank DDA (checking accounts) in which LAS alleged a right to interest calculated at a contractual rate. The class action lawsuit also alleges that Holdings is the alter ego of LAS and LAS fraudulently transferred assets to the Javlin Parties.

CHAO SUN v. DAQING HAN, et al.

Re Defendant: Mazars CPA Limited

Plaintiff alleges that Auditor Reports were false and misleading because: (1) Mazars CPA did not conduct its audits in accordance with Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”) standards; (2) Telestone’s consolidated financial statements did not present fairly, in all materials respects, either the financial position of Telestone and subsidiaries as of 12-31-2009, 12-31-2011 or the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the three years in the periods ended 12-31-2009 and 12-31-2011; (3) Telestone’s financial statements were not presented in accordance, with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, rendering the Auditor Reports not in compliance with PCAOB standards; and (4) the Auditor Reports were also false and misleading because Telestone’s internal controls were not effective but were instead plagued by significant material weakness. The Complaint further alleges that the price of Telestone’s publicly-traded securities was artificially inflated during the Class Period as a result of Defendants’’ allegedly false and misleading statements, and that when the truth was revealed the price of Telestone stock fell, causing damage to purchasers of the Telestone stock during the class Period.

Re Defendants: Richard G. Roosen, Paul E. Varchetti, Lynn M. Olivier, Web Equity Holdings, LLC Cavalry SPV I, LLC and Main Street Acquisition Corp.

Donald B. Gray v. Vectren Corporation Combined Non-Bargaining Retirement Plan and Vectren Corporation

Plaintiff alleges that the SIGECO Plan was merged into the Vectren Plan. Participants in the SIGECO Plan were given the option to either continue having their retirement benefits calculated under the same formula provided in the SIGECO Plain (“Traditional Formula”), or they could instead have Plaintiff retirement benefits calculated pursuant to the same terms as new participants in the Vectren Plan (“Cash Balance Formula”). This lawsuit only pertains to former SIGECO Plan participants who elected to have their future retirement benefits calculated under the Cash Balance Formula. The Plaintiffs alleged that Vectren violated the federal pension law – the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and/or the lawful terms of the Vectren Plan based on how Vectren calculated benefits and communicated with participants about the SIGECO Plan and Vectren Plan benefits.

Plaintiff alleges that Measurable Solutions, a business training and consulting company

concentrating on healthcare-practice consulting, sent hundreds of thousands of advertisements to approximately 20,000 fax machines belonging to physical therapists and physical-therapy practices from 2011 through 2014 .

Plaintiffs allege that when a borrower was required to have insurance pursuant to a residential mortgage or home equity loan or line of credit, and evidence of acceptable coverage was not provided (for example, when the insurance policy did not exist or had lapsed), Carrington would place insurance in a manner such that Carrington allegedly received an unauthorized benefit. Plaintiffs allege further that Carrington did so primarily to receive “kickbacks” or other consideration from American Modern Insurance Group, Inc., Defendants and/or Southwest Business Corporation. Plaintiffs also allege that the way in which Lender-placed insurance policies were obtained and placed caused the charges to borrowers attributed to premiums and the amount of coverage to be excessive.

(N.D. Fla.)


John & Carrie Begley v. Ocwen Loan Servicing LLC

Plaintiffs allege that the REALServicing loan servicing system used by Ocwen was not fully compatible with the ACI weekly and bi-weekly payment plans, such that even when all ACI payments were made as and when scheduled, ACI Extra Payments were placed first into a suspense account and then eventually applied towards future monthly payments not yet due on the ACI Loan instead of applying those ACI Extra Payments immediately to reduce the ACI Loan’s principal balance (the alleged “Extra Payment Processing issue”). While this payment application would still have allowed a borrower to pay off his or her ACI Loan earlier than making only the scheduled contractual payments, Plaintiffs claim that the alleged Extra Payment Processing Issue prevented ACI Loans from paying off as quickly as contemplated by the ACI weekly and bi-weekly payment plans, and resulted in more interest being paid by the borrower than intended by the ACI weekly and bi-weekly plans. Therefore, Plaintiffs filed a lawsuit seeking injunctive relief and damages for breach of contract, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, unjust enrichment, negligence, and violation of the Florida Deceptive and Unfair

Trade Practices Act.

Plaintiffs sued Defendants for breach of contract, fraud, unjust enrichment, and violation of the federal and Georgia RICO statutes. The lawsuit seeks to recover the amount that merchants were overcharged and other relief. Defendants deny that that they acted improperly and assert they have no legal liability.

In re: Geron Corp. Security Litigation

Plaintiff alleges that Defendants violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by making three categories of false and misleading statements during the class Period: (a) Prior to March 2013, Defendants failed to disclose the full extent of the liver abnormalities observed in patents enrolled in the company’s phase 2a trial designed to test its telomerase inhibitor, imetelstat, in patents with Essential Thrombocythemia and Polycythemia Vera (the “ET Trial”); (b) Defendants falsely represented that the Company was continuing to follow all patients previously enrolled in the ET Trial when in fact many patients had left the ET Trial and were no longer being followed; and (c) Defendants misrepresented that imetelstat was well tolerated and did not appear to worsen over time when Defendants were not aware whether imetelstat was well tolerated or worsening in patients who had left the ET Trial because those patients were no longer being followed. As alleged in the Complaint, on 3-12-2014, the FDA placed a clinical hold on the Investing New Drug (IND) for imetelstat due to the occurrence of persistent low-grade liver function test (LFT) abnormalities observed in the ET trial and the potential risk of chronic liver injury following long-term exposure to imetelstat.
