Supreme Court Upholds $57M Verdict for Home-Care Workers

Our case against DSHS, Rekhter, et al. v. DSHS, et al. was won at trial in December 2010, with a jury verdict of over $57,000,000.  The State appealed that verdict to the State Supreme Court, and oral arguments were heard in May 2013.  After a long wait, the decision came back from the State’s highest court.  While the Supreme Court overturned an award of pre-judgment interest of over $39M, they upheld the verdict of over $57M and allowed post-judgment interest, bringing the total to over $80M.  The local news media covered the Supreme Court ruling at length.  We’ve linked to the articles below.  Find out more information about the case at our website,
