PITTSBURGH — Two Pennsylvania men are suing their employers, alleging violation of their settlement agreement.
Matthew Andrews and Mike Preston, both of Washington, Pennsylvania, filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of others similarly situated, July 28 in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Division against
Pacific Process Systems Inc., Alan George and Jerry Wise,
alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, Andrews and Preston have incurred damages for not receiving any of the amounts due from the defendants under their settlement agreement. As a result, the suit says, they have been unable to compensate their attorneys.
Andrews and Preston seek a trial by jury, an order allowing this case to proceed as class action, damages, attorney fees, legal costs and expenses and such relief to which they are entitled. They are represented by attorneys Joshua P. Geist of Goodrich & Geist PC in Pittsburgh, by Richard J. (Rex) Burch and Matthew S. Parmet of Bruckner Burch PLLC in Houston, and by Michael A. Josephson and Andrew W. Dunlap of Fibich, Leebron, Copeland, Briggs & Josephson in Houston.
