Bronx Live Poultry Farm Underpaid Cutters But Stayed Open As Essential Business Now Sued

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 12 – Antonia Vargas was a poultry cutter as Live Poultry Farm at 1167 Webster Avenue in the South Bronx. The company did not pay overtime. She sued the company, and four owners and managers, in March 2019.

   On May 12, 2020 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held a conference in the case, which Inner City Press which has long reported on Webster Avenue and The Bronx also covered. 

  While one of the individual defendants, complaining about being dropped cold by his lawyer, did appear representing himself, the company had no lawyer.

   Judge Liman suggested the filing a motion for default judgment, in a month's time. He asked if the business is still operating, amid Coronavirus.

  Yes, he was told, it was deemed an essential business. It is not, however, a wet market.

The case is Vargas Sanchez, et al. v. Live Poultry Farm Corp. et al., 19-cv-2179 (Liman).
