BHP Billiton Company Update

Last week we filed a motion for summary judgment, asking the court to rule on a specific legal issue that will hopefully move the case forward. We asked the court to hold that payment on a day rate is not legally the same as payment on a salary basis. This is important to eliminating several of BHP’s defenses it is asserting to try to avoid paying overtime. We do not know how long it will take the court to rule on this motion.
