Surly Settles $2.5-Million Lawsuit With EmployeesFrom the StarTribune:

Surly Brewing Co. has settled a $2.5 million class-action lawsuit launched by employees accusing the Minneapolis brewery of violating state law by allegedly making tip-pooling mandatory, firing some who balked at the practice and unfairly distributing gratuities among staffers.

"We are pretty excited about what the class gets," said Steven Andrew Smith, the plaintiffs' attorney. "We believe it's the largest tip-pooling settlement in the history of the state."
