    Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen attend 2014 World Of Children Awards at 583 Park Avenue on November 6, 2014 in New York City. Dualstar Entertainment Group, a company founded by the twins, may settle a lawsuit by paying up to $140,000 to a group of interns who claim they did the work of employees without payment.

    The company owned by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen may settle a lawsuit by paying up to $140,000 to a group of interns who claim they did the work of employees without payment.

    Under the proposed settlement filed last week in a New York court by attorneys for a former intern, each of the 185 members of the class-action lawsuit would receive $530 for the work they performed at the twins' Dualstar Entertainment Group.

    The settlement would have to be approved by a judge.

    The filing says Dualstar doesn't oppose the settlement. Dualstar is the parent company of the twins' fashion brand, The Row. The Row didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
