Bronx Market Sued By Worker Stops Paying Lawyer Amid FLSA Case in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 19 – The Bronx' Aurora Vegetable Market Corp., at 138 East 174th Street, was sued under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Then they stopped paying their lawyer.

  On June 18 there was a proceeding before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Vernon S. Broderick. Inner City Press covered it. 

 The plaintiffs' lawyer made a joke, about another judge diagnosing the rats leaving a sinking ship. Judge Broderick called it colorful language and said he would not all counsel or their clients rats.

The plaintiffs' lawyer said he hadn't meant any insult and would give it one more chance to settle.

The case is Castillo v. Aurora Vegetable Market Corp. et al., 18-cv-9633 (Broderick).
