Dismissal For Client In FLSA Suit


Dismissal Secured For Satellite Dish Manufacturer

Weitz Morgan successfully secured the dismissal of a major satellite dish manufacturer from a federal Fair Labor Standards Act lawsuit that had been filed against it and a local installer.

The plaintiff sued the firm’s client along with the local installer in a class action suit alleging that the plaintiffs were employees and not independent contractors and that the dish manufacturer and installer were co-employers. Damages were in excess of $1M.

Urging the dish manufacturer to take aggressive action to defend the suit, Weitz Morgan filed and prevailed on a 12(b)(6) motion to dismiss, defeating the plaintiffs’ argument that the firm’s client and the local installer were joint employers and removing the client from the lawsuit.¬†#successstories #representativematters
