LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--National law firm Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP has filed a class-action lawsuit against Michaels Stores concerning the manner in which it performs employee background checks. The action is currently pending in the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri, Raini Burnside v. Michaels Stores, Inc., Case No. 6:15-cv-03010-MDH (filed January 9, 2015).
