OPINION AND ORDER re: 62 NOTICE of Settlement. Counsel has failed to state the damages each plaintiff claims for unpaid minimum wage and liquidated damages. Thus, it is impossible to determine whether the allocation of the settlement proceeds is reasonable and bears a rational relationship to the amount claimed by each plaintiff. Accordingly, within 30 days of the date of this Order, the parties are to provide the amount of damages claimed by each plaintiff and the basis therefore. (Signed by Magistrate Judge Henry B. Pitman on 6/22/2017) Copies Transmitted By Chambers. (ras)
