Trial date set for AB&C suit

December 31, 2008

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A trial date has been set in the case of former AB&C Group workers who are suing the company over what they say was insufficient notice before mass layoffs this year.

U.S. District Court Judge John Bailey set the trial date for January 2010 in a conference with lawyers on Monday.

David Hammer, a lawyer representing the workers, said federal law requires companies with more than 100 employees to either give 60 days' notice prior to a mass layoff or plant closing, or to pay employees if notice isn't given.

About 400 people lost their jobs when AB&C closed centers in Martinsburg and Ranson, W.Va., in March and then filed for bankruptcy in April.
