ORDER ON MOTION FOR APPROVAL OF
SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT AND DISMISSAL OF CLAIMS
The parties filed a motion for approval of a settlement agreement between two plaintiffs,
Manolo Tayum and Clemente Chavez, and the defendants, Clay Road Furniture, LLC and Furniture
4 Everyone, LLC. Based on the record, the court finds that the proposed Settlement Agreement is
a fair, reasonable, and adequate resolution of a bona fide dispute over compensation under the Fair
Labor Standards Act. This Agreement compensates Mr. Tayum and Mr. Chavez a fair and adequate
amount, without the delays or uncertainties of continued litigation. The court grants the motion and
approves the Settlement Agreements submitted as Exhibit A & B to the Motion for Approval of
Settlement Agreement. (Docket Entry No. 15). The claims of Mr. Tayum and Mr. Chavez are
dismissed, with prejudice.
No other employee opted in when these parties settled. The two plaintiffs, Mr. Tayum and
Mr. Chavez, settled their claims before notice of the court’s conditional certification issued. Mr.
Tayum and Mr. Chavez have no continuing interest in representing potential opt-in plaintiffs in
pursuing FLSA or other claims. Any remaining claims in this lawsuit by potential opt-in plaintiffs
are dismissed without prejudice.
SIGNED on May 19, 2017, at Houston, Texas.
