“Final Approval has now been granted to a settlement in this class action case which did not draw a single objection and appears to be fair and reasonable. As part of this settlement, all current and former salaried managers employed by defendants in a covered position between January 16, 2000, and April 1, 2005, who timely submitted a valid claim will recover approximately $234 for every week worked during the class period. This equates to over nine hours of overtime pay for every week worked during the class period for all class member who timely submitted valid claims.”

“In view of the diligent efforts in a complex are of law and the significant monetary results obtained on behalf of the class members, the Court orders the defendants pay to class counsel out of the gross settlement amount, attorney fees.”
