Cases and Class Actions » Pursell v. Pacific Wings, LLC and Buffalo Wild Wings - Class Action Lawsuit
Great News Takes Wings!!!! Our class action brought on behalf of employees employed by Pacific Wings in its restaurants in Palmdale, Burbank, West Covina, Canyon Country, Bakersfield and Glendale, California was granted final approval on February 10, 2017. This case applies to people who worked at any of these restaurants from September 20, 2009 until September 13, 2016. A copy of the Order and Judgment signed by the court is attached. You can view it here.
We are grateful to all of those of you who called and emailed us and helped us prepare our case. Our being able to talk with many of you really helped us achieve a very good result. You can almost taste the great flavor of this result, can’t you? You could almost say it’s lip-smackin’ good.
It’s always a pleasure when we can report this outcome and we’re glad we were able to obtain this result after more than five years’ time, i.e., since it was filed in September, 2013, almost three and a half years ago!
To all of those of you who helped us reach the class members, to all of you who set the table, we appreciate all of your efforts and assistance. It was thanks to your saving and providing us with schedules, timesheets, earnings statements and many other documents that helped us prove our case to the court. You were Blazin' hot.
If you have any questions or comments, whether on this case or any other matter, and whether in relation to Pacific Wings or elsewhere, please don't hesitate to contact us, whether or not you are still working for one of those restaurants.
Thanks again. Feel free to call 818-547-5200 or email us (email@example.com) at any time if you have any questions, comments or suggestions about this or any other case or matter.
Notices in regard to the settlement of this matter were mailed to over 1,000 potential class members approximately one month ago, on November 21, 2016.
This happens. People move. Maybe you moved. Maybe more than once in the past five years. If you stopped working there, Buffalo Wings may not have your current address.
So if you believe you should have gotten Notice of the proposed settlement and you haven’t gotten it thus far, you must act to protect your rights. We strongly recommend you immediately contact Taylor Mitzner, the Case Manager for this matter, at 844-498-2662.
Here’s why. If you didn’t get the Notice and this settlement is approved, checks will be sent out to class members. If, because Buffalo Wild Wings didn’t have a current address for you so you didn’t get the notice, you may not get a check - even if you’re entitled to it.
So it's up to you. If you think you might be a member of this class, YOU must act. Because, by the terms of the settlement, we don't even yet know your name.
Have any questions about this? Either call us at 818-547-5200 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Similarly, if you have any comments or thoughts about your employment, we’d be glad to hear from you.
Thanks very much.
After a long period of negotiations, we’re pleased to announce that the Los Angeles Superior Court recently granted our Motion for Preliminary Approval of our settlement in our class action brought against Pacific Wings on behalf of servers, waiters and waitresses who worked in California during roughly the past 7 years. A copy of the court’s order is attached hereto.
CPT Group, the third party administrator for this case, will be mailing out notices to all known class members on or about October 27, 2016. If you believe you are part of the class you should receive such a notice. Pacific Wings may not have your current address, and thus the administrator might not mail it to where you live.
If you do not receive such a notice within two weeks of that date, i.e., the second week of November, 2016, we strongly recommend you immediately contact CPT at
We are very grateful for your patience in our endeavor to continue to see this case to conclusion. If all goes well, final approval should take place early next year.
If you have any questions about your current or former employment at Pacific Wings, or for any other reason, please call us at 818-547-5200 or email us at email@example.com.
If you worked at Pacific Wings in Southern California since March, 2009 (during the last six years):
If you had any complaints about your employment with Pacific Wings, we'd very much appreciate your calling us.
A proposed class-action lawsuit has been filed by Adaire Pursell ("Plaintiff") against Buffalo Wild Wings International, Inc., Pacific Wings, LLC, and Buffalo Wild Wings (hereafter referred to as “Wild Wings” or “Defendants”), on behalf of individuals who were employed by Defendants in California as servers, waiters and waitresses during the four years preceding the filing of the lawsuit on September 20, 2013.
The case was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, as Case No. BC 522083 (a copy of the complaint is attached). In this lawsuit, filed on behalf of herself and all others who worked for Defendants, Plaintiff Pursell contends that Wild Wings did not comply with California law for payment of wages and providing meal and rest breaks. 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.
If you worked for Wilds Wings as a server, waitress or waiter in California at any time since September 20, 2009, we would like to speak with you. You might be able to assist us in terms of schedules, timekeeping, taking breaks, and accuracy of wage statements.
