"Gold Mantis finalizes settlement with workers who alleged labor violations" 4 January 2021
Gold Mantis Construction Decoration (CNMI) LLC has come to a settlement with the seven construction workers who are suing them for alleged labor violations.
In a status report it filed with the U.S District Court for the NMI, Gold Mantis said that it has reached a settlement with the seven construction workers. Gold Mantis also asked the court to vacate the status conference in the case that is set for Jan. 11.
In response, District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona Manglona ordered Gold Mantis to file a stipulation for dismissal pursuant to the party’s report that they are in the final stages of a settlement agreement with the seven construction workers. [...]
According to Saipan Tribune archives, back in November, Manglona found Gold Mantis in contempt of court and imposed a $2,000 fine per day for violating her discovery order.
Manglona previously ordered Gold Mantis to answer in writing why the court should not treat its noncompliance as contempt of court, and why the court should not impose a civil contempt sanction requiring Gold Mantis to pay a $2,000 daily fine from the time all discovery and affidavits were to be produced.
