Pillsbury Client Rust Movie Productions Wins New Mexico OSHA Settlement

Pillsbury and Rust Movie Productions, LLC, are pleased to announce a favorable settlement with the New Mexico Environment Department’s Occupational Health and Safety Review Bureau. After witness depositions and Bureau citation discovery, the settlement was reached. Other defendants used deposition testimony to exonerate themselves and correct media misinformation because the OSHA matter moved quickly.

Rust Movie Productions appealed the citations and worked with the Bureau to settle after discovery. Rust Movie Productions denies any wrongdoing in the agreement.

“Rust Movie Productions is very pleased with the outcome of this matter,” said Thomas Van Wyngarden, a partner with Pillsbury in Los Angeles who heads the workplace safety practice and represented Rust Movie Productions. “We are satisfied that the settlement reflects the right outcome—the withdrawal by the Bureau of the ‘willful’ designation, reduced penalties, and revised alleged violation description language which removed largely unnecessary, inflammatory language. Everyone involved is pleased to move forward and put this matter behind them.”
