Enrique German filed a complaint on March 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Christopher B. Bearden and Bearden Construction Co.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was employed to work on sidewalk demolition and construction but was not paid for all his hours worked, including overtime and prevailing wages.
