Trial for Tapas Bar Sued For Not Paying Overtime Is Moved Up to June 25 in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 30 –  Lucky 7 Tapas Bar and La Casa del Mofongo have been sued for not paying overtime. The question has been, when will it go to trial? 

 On May 28, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held a proceeding.  Inner City Press covered it. 

Judge Engelmayer chided plaintiffs' counsel for not filing required pre-trial submissions, saying You have to raise your game, this is Federal court.

The response was apologetic, and pushing back: they practice in Federal court.  

A suggestion to hold the trial in late July, to avoid what Judge Engelmayer says will be a flood of trials in the Fall, was deemed not possible: a lawyer is going on vacation for six weeks.

So it was moved up, to June 25 to 1:45 pm, then June 28 and 29.

The case is Brito v. Lucky Seven Restaurant & Bar LLC et al., 19-cv-3876 (Engelmayer)
