According to court documents obtained by Radar, the Los Angeles Superior Court judge presiding over the case has set a trial date for November 2, 2021.
In this case, Kathy and her husband Rick Hilton are fighting their ex-employee, Isabel Reina Gonzalez Hernandez. Back in July 2019, Hernandez sued Kathy and Rick for allegedly failing to pay her overtime, not providing her proper meal breaks, and unfair business practices.
Hernandez said she was hired to be a live-in housekeeper for the Hilton family.
Her suit said, “The suit, “DEFENDANTS failed to provide PLAINTIFF with a second meal period or any rest periods as required by law; DEFENDANTS willfully failed to pay PLAINTIFF all wages due after PLAINTIFF’S separation from DEFENDANTS’ employment; and, DEFENDANTS knowingly and intentionally failed to provide PLAINTIFF with accurate wage statements.”
She is suing seeking in excess of $25,000.
Kathy and Rick did not file a generic response to the lawsuit. Instead, they went out all in their answer to the complaint. They denied all allegations they failed to provide their housekeeper with the proper meal breaks or that they screwed her out of overtime pay,
They said if the court found they did owe their former employee any money,, it should be offset by “Plaintiffs theft of items from Defendants' home.”
Kathy’s lawyer wrote, “Defendants are informed and believe, and based thereon allege, that Defendants are entitled to a complete and/or partial offset against each and every cause of action alleged in the Complaint in an amount to be established at trial, based in part or in whole on Plaintiff's theft of items from Defendants' home.”
Kathy claimed Hernandez was paid all income, compensation, and wages to which she was entitled. Paris and Nicky's mom isn't playing around and seems like she is ready to take the stand to testify if needed.
