Forman v. KeHE Distributors LLC Class Action Lawsuit


Update: June 16, 2014

Some time back, our firm chose to not puruse this case any futher. While we had been hopeful it could succeed, , over the past many months, did not work out.

However, if you believe you might have been a possible member of this case had it been a class action, you should feel free to take your own action, including seeking out an attorney to represent you on an individual basis.

We thank all of you who tried to assist us in these efforts. If we file any class action case involving this job position in the future, we will post it on this website.


Plaintiff's Allegations

A proposed class-action lawsuit has been filed by Dorothy Forman ("Plaintiff") against KeHE Distributors LLC (Defendant), on behalf of individuals who were employed by KeHE as Field Sales Associates or Field Sales Representatives for KeHE during the four years preceding the filing of the lawsuit on May 9, 2013. The case was filed in San Diego County Superior Court, as Case No. 37-2013-00048168-CU-OE-CTL. Thereafter, on July 11, 2013, Tree of Life Inc., a Florida Corporation was added as a named defendant, and on July 23, 2013, the complaint was amended. A copy of the First Amended Complaint is attached to this webpage.

On August 15, 2013, Defendant ‘removed’ the case to Federal Court.

In this lawsuit, filed on behalf of herself and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff Forman contends that KeHE did not comply with the requirements under California law for payment of wages. If successful, a class action allows former and current employees to receive back wages that are owed to them.

The court has not yet ruled on any of Plaintiff's allegations or determined whether the case is appropriate for class action status.
