Assault & Battery: Margolis Law reaches six-figure settlement with restaurant owners who brutally beat kitchen worker.

Margolis Law represented a family of Chinese immigrants who left their employment as kitchen staff for a Southeast Michigan restaurant due to unpaid wages. When they arrived at the restaurant to collect their final paycheck, they were met by the restaurant owners, who were wielding bats. The restaurant owners pursued our clients into the parking lot and beat one in the head with a baseball bat. The family member suffered a life-changing traumatic brain injury as a result of the incident.

We filed a civil case against the restaurant owners in Livingston County including assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Margolis Law reached a confidential six-figure settlement with the restaurant owners after the lawsuit was filed.
