About The Case:
Jien v. Perdue Farms, No. 1:10-cv002521

This lawsuit says that some poultry companies talked to each other about
how much to pay their workers, which is against the law. So, these
companies paid workers less money than they should have.

A group of workers sued the companies that they said did this.

The people who sued, and the people like them, are called the “Plaintiffs.”
The poultry companies they sued are call the “Defendants.” The
Defendants say they did nothing wrong.

The Court has not decided who is right. Instead, both sides agreed to settle.
