Class Action Settlement on Behalf Truck Drivers

Class Action Settlement on Behalf Truck Drivers

The United States District Court for the Southern District of California has granted final approval to a class action settlement reached by the parties in Ollendorff v. Dalton Trucking, Inc., Case No. 2:11-cv-05189-DMG-SP.

The plaintiffs and class members were represented by class counsel Jack W. Lee and Kevin R. Allen of Minami Tamaki LLP.

The settlement class consists of approximately 280 truck drivers in California who plaintiffs allege were not provided with overtime compensation owed under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and off-duty meal and rest breaks as required by California law. The parties’ settlement, which received final approval from the court on January 8, 2013, requires the defendants to pay $275,000 to settle all claims brought on behalf of the class.
