Palmer Reifler Had Duty To Defend Sephora In Shoplifter Suit
A Florida law firm had a duty to defend retailer client Sephora from a lawsuit targeting its methods for pursuing damages from shoplifters, a California federal judge ruled Friday, despite the fact that the underlying case did not result in a finding of fault.

Considering an indemnity clause in a service agreement between Orlando firm Palmer Reifler & Associates PA and Sephora, Chief Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero said both parties would have intended the duty to defend to be triggered when one of them was called on to act as indemnitor rather than seen as a "dormant" responsibility.

"The court is not persuaded that, without an explicit statement of such intent, the parties intended to limit the duty to defend ... such as where the indemnitor admits fault or has been found negligent in a separate proceeding," the court said.

In denying a defense motion for judgment at the pleading stage, the court said it was also unpersuaded by the firm's position that Sephora's assertion of the right to control the defense of an underlying matter constituted a waiver of its right to invoke the duty to defend.

The court reasoned that, because neither Florida law nor the contract required a formal tender of a legal defense, Sephora's claim of control was best analyzed in light of a related duty to cooperate with the defense. And in that context, a failure to cooperate does not necessarily relieve the indemnitor of its duty to defend, the judge said.

Sephora sued the firm late last year and demanded reimbursement for costs in a proposed class action under the terms of the agreement for the firm to represent the retailer in pursuing damages for shoplifting.

The case arose from allegations in a 2014 California state court suit that Sephora's shoplifting damage letters were intended to frighten customers into believing they would be subject to criminal prosecution if they didn't satisfy allegedly inflated restitution demands.

In its December suit, Sephora said Palmer Reifler had a duty to defend and indemnify it in a suit focused on misconduct allegations and a so-called demand letter "mill" run by Palmer Reifler.

While the underlying suit was dismissed and the plaintiff did not appeal, Sephora argued, that didn't release the firm from the contract clause outlining a duty to defend "any and all suits, judgments, or liabilities directly arising from the negligence or other improper conduct[.]"

In April, Palmer Reifler argued that it shouldn't be on the hook for the costs in part because Sephora never tendered the defense of the case to the firm, but instead retained and directed its own defense. law360.com

Surfing Wal-Mart's Crime Wave
Research published this week by the Tampa Bay Times reveals stunning statistics from 2014: 53 Wal-Mart stores in 3 Florida Counties (Hillsborough, Pasco, and Hernando) generated a paddy wagon caravan of 16,800 police reports in one year alone.

That's two calls an hour, every hour, every day. "The calls eat up hours of officer's time," the newspaper reports. "They all start at one place." One sheriff told the newspaper, "It is a tremendous strain on manpower."

The Tampa Bay Times calculates that Wal-Mart, on average, produce four times as many calls as nearby Target stores. The newspaper said the retailer has been criticized "for shifting too much of its security burden onto taxpayers. Several local law enforcement officers also emphasized that all the hours spent at Wal-Mart cut into how often they can patrol other neighborhoods and prevent other crimes." huffingtonpost.com

Hiring Hurdle: Finding Workers Who Can Pass a Drug Test
All over the country, employers say they see a disturbing downside of tighter labor markets as they try to rebuild from the worst recession since the Depression: They are struggling to find workers who can pass a pre-employment drug test.

Tyco, Johnson Controls see savings of $1 billion from combined operations,  Number of job cuts still unknown
The new Johnson Controls will be able to cut $1 billion in costs in the years ahead as it combines operations, saves on purchasing and finds other savings from combining Johnson and Tyco International, the company's next president said Monday. The transaction will shift Johnson Controls' corporate headquarters to Cork, Ireland, resulting in savings of $150 million on taxes, thanks to Ireland's lower corporate tax rate. Tyco has been based in Ireland since 2014, after shifting its corporate headquarters from New Hampshire to Bermuda and then Switzerland over the years.

On the cost-cutting side, the companies are forecasting they will see $400 million in savings from combining "general and administrative functions," from human resources, information technology, legal, finance and other functions. Where those cuts will come is unclear. The key locations for much of those functions today are the corporate offices of Johnson Controls in Glendale and Tyco's office in Princeton, N.J. jsonline.com

Ukrainian Pleads Guilty To Stealing Press Releases For Insider Trading
- Largest Known Computer Hacking and Securities Fraud Scheme in History
- Victims included Home Depot, Panera Bread, hundreds of others
A Ukrainian pleaded guilty to stealing unpublished press releases and using them for insider trading that netted more than $30 million in profits for him and his collaborators, the US Department of Justice said Monday. In the biggest known incident of hacking and securities fraud to date, Vadym Iermolovych, 28, of Kiev, Ukraine, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Madeline Cox Arleo to a three count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to commit computer hacking, and aggravated identity theft, according to a DOJ press release.

The press release reported that Iermolovych and his accomplices broke into the computers of newswire agencies - Marketwired LP, PR Newswire Association LLC and Business Wire - and stole around 150,000 yet-to-be released press releases between 2010 and 2015.

The traders traded on stolen press releases containing material nonpublic information about the following publicly traded companies that included, among hundreds of others: Align Technology Inc., Caterpillar Inc., Hewlett Packard, Home Depot, Panera Bread Co., and Verisign Inc. darkreading.com justice.gov


No Honor Among Cyber Thieves
- Cybercriminal business model vulnerable to intervention
Cybercrime may be booming but its business model is vulnerable on many fronts, according to a new report. "We've been observing that they've been acting like a business for a while," said Shogo Cottrell, security strategist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, which produced the report. The profit motivation accounts for more than three-quarters of all data breaches and has been rising in recent years, according to this year's Verizon data breach report. But cybercrime also shares many of the vulnerabilities that traditional businesses do, said Cottrell.

For example, a criminal group's reputation is even more important in the underground economy than brand reputation in the legitimate world. "In the underground space, there is a huge lack of trust and an enormous amount of paranoia," he said. "Everyone is doing nefarious activities. It's hard to trust someone who is at the core untrustworthy."

As a result, reputation counts for a lot among criminals, but it's also hard to build a solid reputation, and easy to lose it. And once the reputation takes a hit, where a legitimate business will try to repair the damage and salvage the brand, the bad guys just throw in the towel.

And when it comes to destroying criminal reputations, the authorities have unlikely allies -- other criminals themselves. Cybercriminal groups are quick to go after each other, and there are no laws or authorities that can protect against unfair business practices. csoonline.com

Face recognition app taking Russia by storm
Founders have big plans for the retail sector
If the founders of a new face recognition app get their way, anonymity in public could soon be a thing of the past. FindFace, launched two months ago and currently taking Russia by storm, allows users to photograph people in a crowd and work out their identities, with 70% reliability.

It works by comparing photographs to profile pictures on Vkontakte, a social network popular in Russia and the former Soviet Union, with more than 200 million accounts. In the future, the designers imagine a world where people walking past you on the street could find your social network profile by sneaking a photograph of you, and shops, advertisers and the police could pick your face out of crowds and track you down via social networks.

The pair also have big plans for the retail sector. Kabakov imagines a world where cameras fix you looking at, say, a stereo in a shop, the retailer finds your identity, and then targets you with marketing for stereos in the subsequent days. Again, it sounds a little disturbing. But Kabakov said, as a philosophy graduate, he believes we cannot stop technological progress so we must work with it and make sure it stays open and transparent. theguardian.com

Transaction Laundering Is the New Face of Payment Fraud
Transaction laundering is an increasingly popular scam, in which cyber-criminals hijack the legitimate payment process to sell all manner of illicit goods and services online.

The point of this fraud is to make use of the online acquisition system to take payments for those illegal goods and services. Call it a digital version of money-laundering, with cyber-criminals seeking to get the best of both worlds, engaging in illicit commerce while using legal means to get paid. But like other forms of money-laundering, transaction laundering is illegal - without exception.

For every one site that is busted, there are dozens of others that continue along with their ongoing dual-purpose business model. But whether the institution was aware of what was happening or not, the risks to legitimate organizations involved in these scams is the same; as far as the government is concerned, they are responsible, and if the scam is discovered, they will be held financially liable - and, possibly, criminally responsible. paymentssource.com

'Friendly fraud': Online retailers are grappling with new forms of digital deception
Fraudsters typically make online purchases using other people's cards, and tend to buy items that are in high demand and easy to fence. Analysts have also seen an increase in instant-delivery downloadable gift card thefts, where people resell the card or quickly spend it and keep or sell the merchandise.

Given the spike in online fraud, retailers are incurring higher and higher levels of chargebacks. The buy online and pick up in store model, an option growing in popularity and offered by retailers such as Canadian Tire, Best Buy and Loblaw, is particularly vulnerable, according to LexisNexis.

But chargebacks also are also on the rise as part of so-called friendly fraud. Here, a good is ordered and paid for by a legitimate cardholder who receives the item or doesn't pick it up from the post office or courier, and then for a variety of reasons might ask the bank to remove the charge from her credit card.

As of the end of the first quarter of 2016, friendly fraud accounted for 72.4 per cent of all gross chargebacks related to online sales. financialpost.com


U.S. e-commerce posts yet another big quarter
Online sales grew 15.1% in Q1 and accounted for 11.1% of retail sales  when factoring out items not normally bought online. That's the highest e-commerce penetration in history. internetretailer.com
