Quiles, Turman, et al. v. Koji’s Japan, Inc., Arthur J. Parent, Jr.

Quiles, Turman, et al. v. Koji’s Japan, Inc., Arthur J. Parent, Jr., in which the California Court of Appeal held in a published opinion – after seven years of litigation – that the owner and president of a defunct restaurant company could be personally liable to a class of former employees for wage violations, as a joint employer and an alter ego under California law. The trial court thereafter certified class claims against the owner and his company, and found the owner to be a joint employer. After more than 10 years, Bryan Schwartz Law secured a $2.2 million settlement, paid directly by the owner, Parent, to the former low-wage restaurant workers. Meantime, the original named plaintiff, a server who worked for minimum wage plus tips, was fired in retaliation for filing her class action, and won nearly a million dollar jury verdict in Orange County, for retaliation under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, including hundreds of thousands for her and her full fees and costs. The Court of Appeal repeatedly upheld this judgment and the extensive fees and costs for the collection efforts required to enforce the judgment.
