$13 Million Settlement for Building Superintendents

In 2000, Virginia & Ambinder secured a $13 million settlement for superintendents of residential buildings owned by the City of New York and managed by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development.  These superintendents alleged that, for years, they were required to be on-call at all times and were denied payment of prevailing wages, minimum wages, and overtime wages. Through diligence and creativity, V&A managed the complexities of this matter to ensure that these hardworking men and women were awarded the wages they claimed. See Wallace Brunson, et al. v. The City of New York, et al.
