Represented a major national retailer in home entertainment against claims that the company had misclassified Plaintiff and hundreds of other employees as employees as “exempt” under the Fair Labor Standards Act and requested class certification to assert claims on behalf of all other employees reclassified around the same time. Defeated Plaintiff’s efforts for class certification, filed a motion for summary judgment attacking Plaintiff’s theories of liability and damages, and then settled the claims for a small fraction of the original demand.
