Update: April 5th, 2010
This information is for all employees of Six Flags who filed claims in the case of Jason Elkin, et al, v. Six Flags, Inc., a case filed in California in Los Angeles County Superior Court as Case No. BC 342 633 relating to unpaid wages claims.
As we expect you are aware, because of the filing of bankruptcy by Six Flags, the second and third payments have been put on hold. Whether they will be paid or not is not known to us at this time.
There is no guarantee that any further payments will be made in the case at all. However, if payments are eventually made, it is imperative that those who are may be entitled to such payments keep the administrator advised of their current addresses.
On November 7, 2005, our office filed a class action complaint on behalf of then current and former employees who had worked in the State of California for various Six Flags entities for the four year period (and following time, until settlement) for unpaid wages, etc. Over the ensuring months, the case moved forward, such that after it was settled, pending approval of the court.
About two years later, in October, 2007, settlement was achieved. As a result of that settlement, it was further required that preliminary approval be given by the court, and that was achieved December 18, 2007, in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Judge Carolyn Kuhl, presiding.
Once the case was given preliminary approval, notices and claim forms and other information were provided to members of the class through what is called a third party administrator. After the notices and claims have been properly distributed, the information came back into the third party administrator, who filed a report with the court. In this case, as a result of those efforts, the court granted final approval of the class action settlement at a hearing in April, 2008. [See Notice of Final Judgment]
Pursuant to that approval, checks were provided to those members of the class made known to the claims administrator according to the order of final approval.The Law Offices of Thomas W. Falvey
