Lamar Construction Company - $2.2 Million Class Settlement

UPDATE 3/28/2016

On July 11, 2014, Outten & Golden filed suit against Lamar Construction Company ("Lamar") in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Michigan seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification ("WARN") Act. We contend Lamar ordered plant closings on or about July 9, 2014, without providing its employees with advance written notice.

On October 15, 2015, the Court granted final approval of a class settlement for the certified WARN class in the amount of $2,246,633.24, inclusive of class counsel's fees and expenses. The Trustee is working to bring funds into the estate to pay creditor claims, including the WARN class claim and, therefore, the Trustee does not yet have an estimate of the timing of a distribution. We do not expect, however, for settlement checks to be mailed before 2017. We will update the Class here when we have a firm distribution date.
