Hoenemier v. Sun Microsystems, Inc., Case No. 106CV-071531, Santa Clara County Superior Court
We represent, along with co-counsel, current and former technical writers in a class action lawsuit seeking to recover for unpaid overtime, and related claims. The lawsuit accuses Sun of, among other things, failing to pay overtime wages to their technical writers despite their job duties being predominantly non-exempt. The plaintiffs' Complaint asks the court to order Sun to pay its technical writers for the overtime they have worked in the past, and to start paying overtime to current employees in the eligible positions.
On October 29, 2010, the Santa Clara Superior Court granted final approval to a $5 million class action settlement on behalf of technical writers employed by Sun Microsystems. The settlement share checks were mailed out to class members.
