Jones Day secured dismissal of a putative class action lawsuit for Micron Technology, Inc. involving claims for allegedly unpaid bonus amounts.
The plaintiffs sought in excess of $20 million on behalf of employees subject to the Idaho Wage Claim Act who earned a performance-based bonus after the conclusion of fiscal year 2018. Micron pursued an aggressive defense and filed motions to dismiss and to strike the class allegations at the outset. Following limited discovery, Micron filed a summary judgment motion based on the six-month statute of limitations applicable to claims for “additional wages.” The court granted summary judgment, finding that the class claims were time-barred, and entered judgment in favor of Micron.
Micron Technology, Inc., through its subsidiaries, manufactures and markets dynamic random access memory chips (DRAMs), static random access memory chips (SRAMs), flash memory, semiconductor components, and memory modules.
