Quiles v. Parent

Quiles v. Parent

30-2010-0425532-CU-OE-CXC (Orange Co.): After a 2016 jury verdict and judgment of approximately $950,000 for the lead plaintiff in a class action, who was wrongfully terminated after alleging wage violations (she had only $3,000 underlying wage loss from the termination), Bryan Schwartz Law, P.C. aggressively prosecuted a collections action against Parent. The Court of Appeal issued multiple decisions supporting the underlying judgment and collections efforts, including a precedential decision, Quiles v. Parent (2018) 28 Cal.App.5th 1000, holding that the broader federal law standard (under the FLSA) governs what costs are recoverable by a FLSA plaintiff in California. Despite having already paid over $1.1 million, Parent was ordered to post a $781,344 bond to stay immediate enforcement. In March 2020, the Court of Appeal largely affirmed the award of $493,017 in attorney fees and $27,879.09 in costs for collections efforts (2020 WL 104106). Finally, the 10-year-old wrongful termination litigation settled.
