Recent Developments in Class Action Lawsuit Against Pricewaterhouse Coopers
As we indicated in previous correspondence to the Class, both the plaintiffs and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) recently filed competing Motions for Summary Judgment. Our motion seeks a court determination that all PwC attest associates were improperly classified as exempt and PwC’s motion seeks to have the case dismissed in its entirety. If Plaintiffs are successful, then the trial of this case will be limited solely to the issue of how much PwC owes class members in overtime pay and other damages. If PwC is successful, the Class will receive nothing. Obviously the court’s ruling on these motions will have a substantial impact on the eventual outcome of this case.
Although the court originally set these motions for hearing on December 22, 2008, it recently moved the hearing to February 20, 2009. The hearing will take place at the Federal District Court House in Sacramento. If you are interested in attending the hearing please email attorneys William A. Kershaw or Stuart Talley so we can provide you with additional information with respect to the time and location of the hearing.
