Eddington Security

STATUS: Resolved

On January 26, 2009, Outten & Golden LLP and The Ottinger Firm, PC filed an amended class action complaint in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of security guards who worked for Eddington Security, Inc., Mark Eddington, and Bovis Lend Lease LMB, Inc. The plaintiff worked for defendants at 130 Liberty Street, the former Deutsche Bank Building site that was destroyed in the attacks of September 11. He alleged that the defendants failed to pay him and other security guards overtime pay, spread of hours pay, and reimbursements for mandatory uniform maintenance and license fees, and that they also made unlawful deductions from their pay for uniforms and licenses.

A class-wide settlement has been reached with all defendants in the total amount of $1.0 million. The settlement is awaiting final approval by the court..
