Taylor, Bean & Whitaker – $15 Million Class Settlement
On August 10, 2009, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit against Taylor Bean & Whitaker Mortgage Corporation, seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees of Taylor Bean who we contend were terminated on or about August 5, 2009 in violation of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (the WARN Act). On August 24, 2009, Taylor, Bean & Whitaker filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida. The Court certified our WARN suit as a class action and appointed Raisner Roupinian LLP WARN Class Counsel.
On December 2, 2011, Judge Funk granted final approval of the WARN class action $15 Million settlement and entered the Final Order on January 10, 2012. Settlement checks were mailed to the members of the Class on January 27, 2012. Class members will have six months from the date of issuance of the settlement checks to cash their checks or risk reversion of the funds to the TBW Estate.
