  • Spillman v. Salvation Army:  RBGG, along with co-counsel, filed this class action in San Francisco Superior Court in May 2021 against the Salvation Army alleging that it violates a host of California labor laws protecting patient-workers and fails to  properly compensate its employees.  The case seeks to hold  the Salvation Army accountable for its California adult drug and rehabilitation centers that unlawfully require thousands of people  to work long hours for essentially no compensation.
