Four Seasons Beauty Spa Is Sued For Underpay Now Is Said to Offer $10000 But Rejected

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 7 – Wen Zhang sued Four Seasons Beauty Spa for not paying minimum wage or overtime.

On February 23, 2021 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods had a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  But there were problems with the interpretation from Chinese: it could or would not be performed simultaneous, and the phone was left open.

 Judge Woods asked what the problem was, as counsel had asked to withdraw from the case. Finally he put that over to February 24, 2021.

  Inner City Press covered that proceeding as well. Judge Wood said he would re-do everything. But that is not possible in real life. It was said that the business is $200,000 behind in rent and about to close up.

On April 28, 2021 Judge Woods held another conference, and Inner City Press again covered it. Hang & Associates had written in seeking to withdraw as counsel, citing "substantial financial hardship" and claiming withdrawal would "not disrupt the prosecution of this suit." Well, the trial was put off.

Jump cut to March 7, 2022 when plaintiffs' counsel in a candid public letter to Judge Woods said the pro se defendant is only offering $10,000 when their demand is $180,000. Docket 158. They want the March 9 settlement conference canceled "sin die."

The case is Zhang v. Four Seasons Beauty Spa, Inc. et al., 18-cv-8259 (Woods)
