SACRAMENTO — A Los Angeles County man is suing a movie production company, alleging unpaid wages, violation of applicable minimum wage law, and violation of workers compensation acts.
David Goebel filed a complaint July 27 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Stranded LLC, Paula Patton, Deon L. Taylor, Roxanne Taylor and Does 1 through 10, alleging failure to pay fair wages to the plaintiff.
According to the complaint, Goebel worked for more than 40 hours per week from Aug. 29-Sept. 30, 2016, as a driver for the movie "Stranded" without being paid any overtime wages. The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide proper meal or rest breaks including not paying him minimum wages.
Goebel seeks trial by jury, all damages, liquidated damages, interest, all legal fees, and all other relief the court deems just. He is represented by attorneys Alan Harris, David Garrett and Min Ji Gal of Harris & Ruble in Glendale, California.
