Employment and FLSA Litigation
Employment and FLSA Litigation - Thursday, May 2, 2013 12:39 - 0 Comments
A class action lawsuit brought by former workers at Montana Power Co. and the defunct utility has been settled for $1.2 million. Montana Power, through a liability insurer, agreed to pay the money to 141 former employees who sued over unpaid workers’ claims. The agreement has received court approval.
In February 2012, a Butte District Court jury ruled in favor of Montana Power, but the trial judge threw out the verdict three months later, citing jury misconduct and ordered a new trial. Montana Power appealed the decision to the Montana Supreme Court. But while the appeal was pending, the two sides continued mediation and reached a settlement. Lon Dale, a lawyer with the Missoula, Mont., firm of Milstead Govich, Dale and Steinbrenner, represents the employees in the lawsuit that has been going on for about 15 years. He did a good job for them. Many of the employees are in their 80s and wanted the case to end, according to Lon.
