Kielhurn v. Vistar Corp. and Performance Food Group Co.

Kielhurn v. Vistar Corporation, et al., Case No. RG10-529045 (Alameda County) is a class action brought by Area Managers working for Vistar Corporation dba Roma Foods in California between July 4, 2006 and July 31, 2010.  GBDH, along with co-counsel Hinton Alfert & Sumner, are representing the Plaintiffs.

The case seeks reimbursement for expenses incurred by Area Managers traveling to and from customer locations selling the company’s food and food-related products. Plaintiffs allege, on behalf of the potential class, that Roma Foods has violated California law by not reimbursing these expenses. This case is similar to cases brought successfully by our firm and Hinton Alfert & Sumner against other companies in the foodservice distribution industry, all of which have similar practices that violate California law.

On June 8, 2011, the Court granted preliminary approval of a $1 million class settlement and scheduled a final approval hearing for August 31, 2011. Notice of the settlement was mailed to the class on June 23, 2011.
