CHALAK M&M AR1, LLC; CHALAK

and DINO NITHIANANDAN
The parties have filed a joint motion asking the Court to approve a confidential settlement
agreement and to dismiss this action with prejudice. The plaintiff has provided the Court with a
copy of the confidential settlement agreement for in camera review. Based upon the Court’s review
of the confidential settlement agreement, the Court’s knowledge of the history of this case, and the
Court’s experience with other cases under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Court finds that the
settlement is a fair and reasonable settlement reached in an arms’ length negotiation during a full
day of mediation in which the plaintiffs were represented by competent counsel and that the
settlement follows a lengthy course of litigation in which the ultimate outcome was uncertain. The
joint motion is GRANTED. Document #93. The Court approves the confidential settlement
agreement. This action is dismissed with prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 24th day of June, 2016.
J. LEON HOLMES
