    Banda v. Bagdasarian was settled on April 29, 2008, after mediation through the Court of Appeal. It was a great settlement for the workers. The case was remanded to the Superior Court, which approved a workforce-wide settlement under B&P 17200. There was no class settlement. The settlement helped 400 farmworkers recover from unpaid rest and meal breaks for only 82 work days during the 2001-2002 harvest season. That's right, 82 days. The Court also issued an injunction against the farmer. Here are the details: $468,000 for the workers; $17,000 for the named plaintiffs; $35,000 for claim administration; and $65,000 for fees. It was our honor to co-counsel with Cal. Rural Legal Assistance on the case. Mark Talamantes, Talamantes/Villegas/Carrera, LLP, San Francisco
