Employment Lawyers File Class Action Lawsuit against Spansion
In 2009 Girard Gibbs and co-counsel filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of former Spansion employees. The lawsuit alleged that Spansion failed to provide the terminated employees from California and Texas with advance notice of the layoff, as required by the Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act ("WARN Act").
The bankruptcy court approved the class action settlement negotiated by Girard Gibbs and co-counsel in 2010. The settlement was valued at $8.568 million and was distributed to former employees in 2010 and resulted in more than 750 former Spansion employees receiving direct cash payments.
