Lazo Sued Trulli Italian Restaurant But COVID Means Low Payout Without Disparagement

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 21 – Manuel N. Lazo worked at the I Trulli Italian restaurant at 124 East 27th Street in Manhattan and sued for underpayment.  

 On January 21, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held a fairness hearing. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Liman to his credit said he found the settlement of $14,000 relatively small - especially when not even paid up front but over time.

The restaurant's lawyer explained that the business was already losing money to competitor before COVID, and is now down to a bit of takeout and two outdoor tables in the cold. 

 Judge Liman also inquired into the non-disparagement language, wanting to make sure that Lazo will be able to say that he sued, and why, and the outcome.

The restaurant's lawyer, who had defended generally releases, was less adament about non-disparagement.

The case is Lazo v. Valdome Inc. et al., 20-cv-982 (Liman)
