The three former security guards sued Britney for overtime pay must settle their claims through arbitration, a judge ruled Monday June 19th, 2006.
Silas Dukes, Lonnie DeShawn Jones and Randy Jones, the three former bodyguards of Britney Spears, were told Monday June 19th, 2006 by judge to settle their claims through arbitration. Back then in May early this year, the threesome filed a suit against the pop superstar, claiming she never gave them overtime compensation and their final paychecks after being fired November 30, 2005.
Silas, Lonnie, and Randy were all hired by Spears' companies to provide security for the 24-year-old pop star and her home at $2,400 to $3,350 per week, that's for everybody to know. Unfortunately, after worked 12 to 16-hour shifts and were expected to be on call 24 hours a day when accompanying Spears on the road, they never got such proper compensation, thus it prompted them to file suit against Spears and her companies.
However, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled Monday that the lawsuit filed against Spears and her companies will go to arbitration in an effort to avoid a court trial. Exact dates have not been scheduled yet, but it is said that two of the arbitration hearings will take place later this year in New York and another will be held in Los Angeles.
