Firm Obtains Affirmance in Second Circuit in Significant Labor Law Decision

Levine Lee prevails before the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Dejesus v. HF Management Services, LLC, 726 F.3d 85 (2d Cir. 2013), a decision establishing the standard for pleading overtime claims under Federal and New York Labor Law. Affirming the dismissal of claims brought against our client HF Management Services, the Second Circuit held that plaintiffs no longer can adequately allege such claims in boilerplate, non-specific pleadings, which had become typical. Seth L. Levine, Scott B. Klugman and Miriam L. Alinikoff worked on the matter, and Mr. Levine argued the issue before the Second Circuit.
