Thompson Legal Wins Appeal in Wage and Hour Case

Jenkins v. S. David Anton, PA; 8:15-cv-00283

James Moten Thompson and Kathryn Hopkinson successfully defended their client in an appeal case where the Plaintiff claimed that the Court abused its discretion and misapplied the legal standard against her in a wage and hour dispute. In the non-jury trial that preceded the appeal, she’d alleged that her Employer had not paid her owed overtime compensation, to which she claimed she was entitled under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”).

The Court found that the Plaintiff could not present additional testimonial evidence after she lost at trial in order to sufficiently prove that she had worked more than 40 hours in any given week. The Court affirmed the judgment of the District Court on these grounds.
