French workers refile case against Bain Capital

A class action lawsuit has been refiled against Bain Capital by a group of French workers who allege the Boston investment firm fraudulently sold the Samsonite factory where they worked, and helped plan its shutdown to save money.

The case, first filed last year, was dismissed without prejudice by federal court in Boston, which said the statute of limitations had expired. Lawyers for the plaintiffs in the new case say they were permitted to refile if new facts came to light.
