D.L.C.'s conduct caused Lawson to sustain damages, as a result of violating the West Virginia Wage Payment and Collection Act, according to the suit.
Lawson is seeking compensatory damages. She is being represented by George B. Morrone III of Morrone Law.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.
