Emerald City Comicon Corporation – Unpaid Wages to Minions


King County Superior Court – Case No.16-2-11493-8 SEA

About this Case

Plaintiff Jerry Brooks claims Emerald City Comicon violated Washington State law by failing to pay people classified as volunteers the minimum wages they were owed under Washington laws for performing services at the 2014 and/or 2015 Emerald City Comicon Conventions in Seattle, Washington. Emerald City Comicon denies Plaintiff’s claims. Plaintiff filed this lawsuit in May 2016 in King County Superior Court.

The Court did not decide in favor of Plaintiff or Emerald City Comicon. Instead, both sides agreed to a settlement. This allows the parties to avoid the risks and costs of a trial and the people affected will be entitled to receive compensation. Plaintiff and his attorneys (“Class Counsel”) think the settlement is fair, reasonable, adequate, and in the best interests of the Class Members.

The settlement will resolve all claims that Class Members could have brought against Emerald City Comicon regarding Emerald City Comicon’s alleged failure to pay Class Members their minimum wages, as set forth above.

The ECCC Class Notice will provide your with important information related to this case, including how to submit a claim for payment.
