In Overtime Case L & H Wine & Liquor Claimed Ready For Trial But Workers Disagreed

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 25 – Jinxu Chen sued L&H Wine & Liquor, Inc. for failure to pay overtime. The plaintiff's counsel wrote in to say "we" are ready for trial. 

   On February 25 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Debra C. Freeman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 It emerged that the defendants had not agreed they were trial ready, had in fact talked about another deposition when contacted. Judge Freeman dug into the incongruity.

As of this writing at 8 pm on February 25, in the docket the trial is set for November 29.

The case is Chen v. L & H Wine & Liquor, Inc. et al., 19-cv-6115 (Gardephe / Freeman)
