A federal judge has been asked to approve a class action lawsuit against a Pennsylvania highway contractor accused of failing to make millions of dollars in required contributions to its retirement and other benefit plans, Penn Live reports. The complaint is related to criminal charges filed by the state attorney general’s office in 2021 that alleged the illegal diversion of pension money and other workers’ benefits. Hawbaker pleaded no contest to those charges and agreed to pay more than $20 million in restitution.
