SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE STATE OF WASHINGTON
COUNTY OF KING
If you were employed by Blue Ribbon Cooking, LLC as an hourly-paid employee at any time between October 20, 2014 and December 31, 2017, a class action settlement may affect your rights.
- Former employees brought claims against Blue Ribbon Cooking, LLC and Vanessa Smith (collectively, “Defendants” or “Blue Ribbon”), alleging a failure to provide compliant meal periods and rest breaks under Washington law. Blue Ribbon strongly denies these allegations.
- The parties to the Case have reached a proposed Class Action Settlement. As part of the Class Action Settlement, Blue Ribbon will make payments totaling $100,000.00. These payments include settlement awards to Class Members, settlement administration costs, service awards for the Class Representatives, and a payment of attorneys’ fees and costs to the attorneys representing the employees.
- Your legal rights are affected by the Settlement, and you have a choice to make now:
Your Legal Rights and Options in This Lawsuit
You will be eligible to get a payment for your share of the Class Action Settlement. You may need to provide the Settlement Administrator any updated contact information to ensure you receive a payment. You will be bound by the terms of the settlement and will give up your rights, if any, to separately maintain legal claims based on the claims and issues in this Case.
|ASK TO BE EXCLUDED||
You will get no payment. This is the only option that allows you to ever be a part of any other lawsuit against Blue Ribbon with respect to the legal claims in this Case.
Write to the Court if you do not like the settlement and explain why. If the Settlement is approved, you will still receive a payment and you will give up rights relating to the legal claims in this Case.
|GO TO A HEARING||
Ask to speak in Court about the fairness of the Class Action Settlement. If the Settlement is approved, you will still receive a payment and you will give up rights relating to the legal claims in this Case.
