MKT Law Case Results

Here is a sampling of some of our victories. Although these are not a predictor of future results, you know you are hiring experienced and successful counsel when you have MKT Law handle your case.

Tip-Splitting and Wrongful Termination


A former waitress sued MKT Law’s restaurant/bar client in outstate MN for tip-splitting and wrongful termination in the amount of about $112,000.00, which—if Plaintiff prevailed—would be doubled under the statute and have attorney’s fees added to it, for a total over $300,000.00. After a week-long trial, the jury found no wrongful termination occurred and Plaintiff was not fired for reporting or refusing to work due to the tip-splitting policy, but found a violation of the tip-splitting statute—which the restaurant/bar argued did not apply because the restaurant/bar employees worked as a team, but otherwise admitted. The jury awarded Plaintiff only about $1,500.00 for violating the tip-splitting statute, no back wages, no future wages, no past emotional distress, and no future emotional distress damages.
