Evans Delivery Class Action Settlement
A class action lawsuit filed against Evans Delivery has been resolved after a group of truck drivers agreed to settle for $2.8 million.

Last September 24, U.S. District Judge Dale S. Fischer approved the deal between Evans Delivery Company of Schuylkill Haven, Pa.
This settlement entitles the drivers to receive a share from $1.7 million. The payments they will receive individually will be based on the number of drivers who participate in the agreement and the amount of time spent on Evans.
