Notes: In 2004 Ernest Young and Nicole Savala filed class action lawsuits in Orange County Superior Court arguing that the way Nordstrom was calculating sales commissions violated the settlement in an earlier case. Nordstrom settled the actions for $8.905 million ($6.404 million in cash and $2.5 million in merchandise vouchers). A challenge to that settlement was rejected by a state appeals court in 2010 (case G042772).
