On April 13, 2020, the Southern District Bankruptcy Court entered an Order confirming the Chapter 11 Plan of individual debtor, Dimitrios G. Galanopoulos. The Debtor was the owner of NDG Coffee Shop, Inc. which operated a pizzeria in the Upper West Side of New York City. Following a series of attacks and accusations by former employees alleging violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), the Pizzeria was forced to closed and the owner filed a personal bankruptcy .
The filing of the Chapter 11 enabled the debtor to settle the FLSA claims, with a payout over 6 years.
The Firm’s team that represented the Debtor was led by Julie Cvek Curley.
