AKORN INC: Ruling on Plaintiff Counsel Fees under Appeal

The case SHAUN HOUSE, On Behalf of Himself and All Others Similarly

ABRAMOWITZ, ADRIENNE L. GRAVES, RONALD M. JOHNSON, STEVEN J. MEYER,
TERRY A. RAPPUHN, BRIAN TAMBI, and ALAN WEINSTEIN, the Defendants,
Case No. 19-2408, is an appeal filed on July 24, 2019 by Plaintiff
to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit from
the Court’s Memorandum Opinion and Order dated June 24, 2019, which
ordered Plaintiff’s counsel to return the attorney’s fees the
Defendants agreed to pay.

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

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

CHESAPEAKE LODGING: Agrees to Resolve Kent Class Action

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CLOUDERA INC: Still Defends 3 Securities Class Suit in California

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CONDOR HOSPITALITY: NexPoint Merger Docs Omit Info, Sabatini Says

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CONDOR HOSPITALITY: Raul Challenges Proposed Sale to NexPoint

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

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

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

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

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

DAVID MARCUS: Ybarra Seeks Overtime Pay for Office Staff

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

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

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

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

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

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

FINISAR CORP: Ruling in Calif. Securities Class Suit under Appeal

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

and registration fees associated with a total vehicle loss. As a
result of GEICO’s deceptive business practices, the Plaintiffs and
the Class Members have suffered damage and lost money in that they
paid for insurance services they otherwise would not have had the
truth been disclosed.
