MIAMI – A Marina Del Ray company is alleged to be delinquent in employee contributions to a labor group.
Board of directors of the Motion Picture Industry Pension Plan, et al. filed a complaint on Nov. 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Western Division against Recommended Media LLC citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages due to unpaid and late-paid contributions.

The plaintiffs seek unpaid contributions in the sum of $1,746.97, interest at 1 percent per month, liquidated damages presumed to be the greater of 20 percent of the amount of contribution due plus 1 percent interest per month, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just.
