Xceligent, Inc. and DMGT
On December 20, 2017, we filed suit against Xceligent, Inc., DMG Information, Inc., and DMGT, PLC (“Defendants”) seeking to recover up to 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act. We contend that Defendants ordered mass layoffs on or about December 14, 2017 without providing its employees with 60 days advance written notice.
On December 20, 2017, the same day that we filed our lawsuit, Xceligent, Inc. (“Xceligent”) filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. Xceligent’s bankruptcy case is being administered by a Chapter 7 Trustee (the “Trustee”) appointed by the Court.
On July 31, 2018, the Court dismissed Defendants DMG Information Inc and DMGT, PLC from the lawsuit. Plaintiff’s case against Xceligent is ongoing.
On December 16, 2020, Plaintiff and the Trustee will participate in a Mediation to attempt to reach a settlement of the WARN class action without further litigation. If a settlement is reached, the parties will request approval from the Bankruptcy Court and request that class members receive notice by mail of the settlement terms and have an opportunity to opt-out of the class action or object to the settlement.
If this mass layoff affected you, Raisner Roupinian LLP can provide you with updated information regarding your rights in this case. Generally, the WARN Act requires companies to provide their employees with 60 days written notice in advance of a mass layoff or plant closing. In the absence of such notice, employers may be liable to each affected employee for 60 days wages and benefits.
