Joshua Kimerling and Troy Lipp of Cuddy & Feder’s litigation group recently won a motion for summary judgment in which the District Court dismissed claims against their client in a federal wage and hour lawsuit. In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs, former workers at a Bronx restaurant, sought damages for allegedly unpaid wages and overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) and the New York Labor Law (“NYLL”). Cuddy & Feder successfully argued that its client was not an “employer” as defined under the federal and New York labor laws. The District Court agreed with Cuddy & Feder’s position and dismissed the plaintiffs’ claims.
