Parkchester Security Wants To Settle Class Action As Objector Wants To Be Airbrushed Out

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 18 – The Bronx housing development Parkchester has a Department of Public Safety and it is settling a class action about not paying overtime. But one of the workers appeared to oppose it - then asked to not be named. 

 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John G. Koeltl to his credit suggested that the settlement order should not pay tribute to the class action lawyers, who are in line for one third of the settlement, some $234,000. When asked how much a class member gets, there was no answer.   

The objector, after being rebuffed, asked to not be named in the order.

"She doesn't need the publicity," her lawyer said.

 But she has another public case against Parkchester, "ANNAMARIE HOLZKNECHT, Plaintiff, v. PARKCHESTER PRESERVATION MANAGEMENT LLC et al., Defendants. No. 19-cv-6006 (JGK)," here.

 And that and this case were public: Inner City Press was as always reporting on public proceedings.

    As of this writing later on June 18, the settlement had not been approved.

The case is Wedemire v. Parkchester Department of Public Safety LLC d/b/a Parkchester DPS LLC, 18-cv-211 (Koeltl).
