Eater Houston has obtained a copy of the court papers filing a lawsuit against Clark Cooper Restaurants (specifically for complaints against Brasserie 19). The plaintiff is a former employee who "brings this collective action [?] on behalf of himself and all other similarly situated employees in order to recover unpaid regular and overtime wages," and was employed at Brasserie 19 "from approximately April 2011 through August 2011[?] as a waiter and bartender." The legal documents were filed November 29.

The lawsuit alleges that Brasserie 19 violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by "failing to pay their nonexempt employees at the minimum wage for all hours worked and by failing to pay their nonexempt employees at one and one-half times their regular rates of pay for hours worked in excess of forty (40) per each seven (7) day workweek."

A representative for Clark Cooper Restaurants told us that "the situation [?] has been resolved and was simply a result of an accounting error, nothing more and no harm intended."

However, as of post time, nothing has been filed dismissing the case or indicating a settlement. The plaintiff could not be reached for comment. Developing.
