New York, NY -- Ms. Perkins, along with several other South Carolina and North Carolina law firms, brought this class action in the wake of a mass plant shutdown by Outboard Marine Corporation.  The action alleged workers did not receive the notice of shutdown required by federal law and was brought against the investment firms who had purchased OMC and allegedly driven it into bankruptcy. The $8.5 million class action settlement was reached after several years of litigation, and benefitted thousands of displaced workers. See Vogt v. Quantum
