RMG Sunset Restaurants Living Wage Class Action Lawsuit

RMG Sunset Restaurants Living Wage Class Action Lawsuit claims that the defendant, RMG Sunset, Inc. added living wage surcharges to the customers’ bill without disclosing to them. The lawsuit alleges the Restaurants for the violation of Consumer Protection laws and engaged in unfair, deceptive practices and false advertising. But the defendants deny all the allegations against them.

The case is entitled South v RMG Sunset, Inc., Case Number BC652905, in the Los Angeles County Superior Court and filed by the plaintiff, Jay South. He sued the defendants, the Restaurants and their managing company, The Sunset Restaurant Management Group.

The Restaurants are:

  • Cabo Cantina
  • Baja Beach Café
  • Fiesta Cantina
  • PB Cantina
  • Jameson’s Irish Pub
  • Sunset Trocadero Lounge

The Settlement

The court did not make a decision in favor of any party. But to resolve this matter and avoid the uncertain outcome, risk of litigation and also other difficulties and delays, both the Plaintiff and the Defendants have agreed to make a Settlement of 6.1 million dollars. The Settlement is approved by the court.
