In Suit Against Hot Pot Central for Not Paying Overtime Heads to SDNY Magistrate For Trial

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 26 – Jianbo Li sued Dumpling 516 Hudson NY Inc. d/b/a Benedicts and others including Lumos Kitchen and Hot Pot Central for failure to pay overtime and minimum wage.            

      On September 24 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John G. Koeltl held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  The case is moving toward trial but the question was, Before who?

Judge Koeltl asked if both parties would agree to trial before a Magistrate Judge, a question that often yields a negative answer. But here, both said yes.

Noting the the assigned Magistrate Judge post for the case had shifted from then-Magistrate Pitman to James L. Cott, Judge Koeltl made the referral for trial, praising Judge Cott as excellent.

The case is Chin et al v. United Restaurant Group, Inc. et al., 18-cv-10734 (Koeltl / Cott)
