September 19, 2019 Filing 7700 Minute Entry for proceedings held before Magistrate Judge James Orenstein:Status Conference held on 9/19/2019 (Attachments: #1 Appearances). SCHEDULING: The next status conference will be held on November 7, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. SUMMARY: (1) As set forth on the record, the pertinent parties agree that the Clerk may terminate Constantine Cannon LLC as counsel of record for Sears and its successor in interest, and I respectfully direct the Clerk to do so. The termination of counsel does not prejudice any party's position with respect to the validity of Constantine Cannon's asserted charging lien. (2) As set forth on the record, no party currently seeks to have this court determine the validity of the asserted lien. (3) Constantine Cannon consents to undoing the redaction of dollar amounts in the redacted version of its motion to withdraw to be filed on the public docket. Elgin Recovery, LLC will submit a letter by September 26, 2019, as to whether it also consents to that change. (4) In referring to the range of possible outcomes of this litigation, I mistakenly used the number 14,000,005 instead of 14,000,605. I respectfully request that the court reporter correct the error should a transcript be prepared.(Court Reporter: Stacy Mace) (Orenstein, James) Modified on 9/20/2019 (Rocco, Christine).

September 13, 2019 Opinion or Order ORDER re #7685 Letter -- The request is granted. The time to file either a joint status update or stipulation and proposed order is extended to September 17, 2019. Ordered by Magistrate Judge James Orenstein on 9/13/2019. (Gutmann, Joseph)
September 13, 2019 Opinion or Order ORDER denying #7684 Motion for Leave to Electronically File Document under Seal -- The request to seal the documents entirely is denied. The movants assert that the documents at issue "contain material which may be subject to attorney-client or work-product privilege." Docket Entry #7684 at 1-2 (emphasis added). It is up to the movants to determine if the documents actually do contain any such material, and, if so, to identify them and explain why they should be redacted from public view notwithstanding settled law that records submitted in support of a motion are judicial documents that must normally be filed on the public docket. See, e.g., Lugosch v. Pyramid Co. of Onondaga, 435 F.3d 110, 119 (2d Cir. 2006); United States v. Amodeo, 71 F.3d 1044, 1048 (2d Cir. 1995). Accordingly, for the second time this week, I grant the movants leave to file their records supporting their fee application on the public docket, or not at all, by 5:00 p.m. today.

September 6, 2019 Opinion or Order ORDER -- At oral argument on the Retailers and Merchants Objectors' motion for attorneys' fees, I asked the movants' counsel about what I perceived to be a lack of contemporaneous billing records supporting the motion on the docket. Counsel corrected me and asserted that the record includes such records and specified that the docket includes billing records that identify the particular tasks for which counsel billed on particular days. When, upon searching the docket again after oral argument, I remained unable to find the documents to which counsel referred, I asked my law clerk to contact counsel's office to obtain assistance in locating the cited records on the docket. Counsel responded with emails to my law clerk that provided information other than that which I had requested; copies of the emails have not been sent to all counsel of record. To avoid an incomplete record or any appearance of substantive, ex parte communication, I respectfully direct the movants' counsel to file a letter that includes a copy of his emails to my law clerk (with email addresses redacted) and any elaboration of the answer that counsel wishes to include. Ordered by Magistrate Judge James Orenstein on 9/6/2019. (Gutmann, Joseph)

Having reviewed the submitted materials I now grant the application. I respectfully direct each of the Respondents to show cause in writing by July 3, 2019, why they should not provide Class Counsel with a list of any and all class members who have signed up for claims-filing services with BRA or any associated entity, and provide written notice to any such class members so that they may cancel any contract entered into with BRA for claims-filing or other services related to these actions. I further respectfully direct the Respondents to include in their submission full details of their efforts to remove false and misleading statements regarding these actions from their websites and social media accounts and to demonstrate that such statements are no longer available to the public. In addition, the Respondents shall disclose whether and to what extent they have engaged in any telemarketing campaigns to sign up class members, using inside or outside sales agents. Finally, I respectfully direct counsel for the Respondents to appear in person at the next status conference in these actions scheduled for July 9, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. I respectfully direct Class Counsel to promptly send a copy of this order to each of the Respondents in the manner most likely to constitute timely and effective notice.Ordered by Magistrate Judge James Orenstein on 6/26/2019.

Brodie and Magistrate Judge James Orenstein on December 6, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Class Counsel will work with the Equitable Relief Plaintiffs to resolve the issue raised by the Equitable Relief Plaintiffs #7313 concerning the reference to injunctive, declaratory, and equitable relief in the release provisions of the superseding settlement agreement. In response to the Bank Defendants' PMC request, the Bank Defendants and Equitable Relief Plaintiffs will confer and submit a proposed briefing schedule for the motion to dismiss. The Court heard arguments from the Branded Operators on their objections [7299, 7300, 7301] to the superseding settlement agreement. Interim Class Counsel for the (b)(3) class will provide notice of the settlement to the Branded Operators. In addition, any persons, businesses, or entities that have had any claims excluded from this action will receive notice of their exclusion. The Court discussed with the parties its concerns about the release provision of the superseding settlement agreement. For the reasons discussed on the record, the parties will draft clarifying language to be included in the notice. The Court reviewed the relevant Rule 23(a), (b) and (e) factors and a summary of its reasons for finding that it is likely that it will approve the settlement and certify a class for the purposes of settlement. Interim Class Counsel will submit all relevant updated documents to the Court for review. The parties reported no discovery disputes ripe for resolution and will confer to submit proposed dates for further status conferences before Judge Orenstein. (Court Reporter Charleane Heading.)

May 18, 2018 Opinion or Order ORDER granting #7155 Motion to Compel. I agree with the movants that the subpoenaed records are relevant to the defenses in this litigation, and are therefore discoverable. To the extent the respondent relies on differences between the RTP payment system and those forms of payment at issue in this litigation, such arguments may ultimately prove persuasive, but do not render the information at issue irrelevant. Because I conclude that the subpoenaed records are relevant, I cannot agree with the respondent that any burden in complying with the subpoena is unwarranted. Accordingly, I cannot conclude that the subpoena at issue imposes an undue burden on the respondent or one that is disproportionate to the needs of the litigation. I therefore grant the motion to compel. Ordered by Magistrate Judge James Orenstein on 5/18/2018. (Orenstein, James)

March 22, 2018 Opinion or Order ORDER re #7170 Letter MOTION for Protective Order Limiting April 20, 2018 Deposition Testimony -- I encourage the parties to continue to confer in an effort to resolve the matter on consent, recognizing that as currently framed, the motion for a protective order neither raises the threshold issue of whether Mr. Banga's deposition should be compelled at all nor waives it. Should there be no consensual resolution, I respectfully direct the plaintiffs to confer and submit a joint response by March 26, 2018. The response should include a detailed plan of the topics about which the deponent is to be questioned, the approximate cumulative amount of time needed for each, the number of attorneys expected to pose the questions on each topic, and an explanation as to why deposition cannot be completed in four hours and why each proposed topic is an appropriate area of inquiry in an apex deposition under the case law of this circuit. In the event a ruling is required, to avoid further disputes on the matter, I will likely specify not only the total deposition time, but also such details as the topics to be permitted, the time allotted for each, and which parties' counsel will be allotted questioning time, notwithstanding my assumption that the parties are almost certainly better able than I to make intelligent and fair decisions on such matters.
