On December 21, 2009, the court approved a Class settlement in the amount of $975,000 dollars for the former employees of FNX Mining. Outten & Golden filed suit against FNX Mining Company USA Inc., DMC Mining Services Corporation, Mid-Tennessee Zinc Corporation, and Strategic Resource Acquisition Corporation in October of 2008, seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees of DMC Mining Services Corporation and Mid-Tennessee Zinc Corporation, who we allege were terminated in violation of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (the WARN Act). Generally, the WARN Act requires companies to provide their employees with 60 days written notice in advance of a mass layoff or plant closing. In the absence of such notice, employers may be liable to each affected employee for 60 days wages and benefits. On February 3, 2009, the Court granted a Motion to Dismiss for Mid-Tennessee Zinc Corporation and Strategic Resource Acquisition Corporation.

Class members will have Six Months from the date of issuance of the settlement checks to deposit or negotiate their check or risk reversion of the funds to the estate.
