About The Case
Representing an oilfield service Fortune 500 Company based in Houston, Texas, Stibbs & Co. settled an ERISA and Workers’ Compensation retaliation case, filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, for a mere $1,000.00. The Complaint alleged that the oilfield service company wrongfully terminated an employee, claiming violations of 29 U.S.C. § 1140 and the Texas Labor Code § 451.001. After discovering a formidable factual and legal defense, Stibbs & Co. attorneys were able to procure a settlement before any depositions or other formal discovery had taken place in the case, saving the company several thousands of dollars in legal fees.
