Hall v. L-3 Communications Corp. et al, No. 2:15-cv-231-SAB (E.D. Wash.)
On September 2, 2015, Reservists and Pilots Mitch Hall and Nathan Kay filed a federal lawsuit against L-3 Communications Corp. (“L-3”), a major defense contractor, alleging that L-3 violated the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (“USERRA”) by denying employment to Kay and reemployment to Hall.
On February 23, 2017, Hall and Kay were authorized by the District Court to pursue their case as a putative class action lawsuit. In the class action complaint, Hall and Kay allege that L-3 discriminated against reservists who applied to work as pilots for L-3 and two of its subsidiaries, and are seeking both monetary and injunctive relief on behalf of a putative class of hundreds of reservists who applied to work for L-3 as pilots.
On October 30, 2018, Nathan Kay moved for preliminary approval of a class action settlement with L-3. Kay’s counsel issued the following press release describing the settlement. Before the class action settlement can be implemented, the Court will need to preliminarily approve the settlement, provide notice to the class, allow class members to submit claim forms, hold a fairness hearing to decide whether to approve the settlement, and grant final approval of the settlement.
