Le Souk Said Polanco Has No Right to Sue But Now Virtual Trial Looms on Zoom or MS Teams

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 15 – Viktoryia Polanco says she worked at Le Souk at 510 LaGuardia Place, and has sued under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

But the defendant on July 15 told U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods she had no claim. Inner City Press covered it.  

Judge Woods began by directing defense counsel to the phone numbers on his website, that anyone could have timely found.

Then he discussed and endorsed a case management plan with motions due December 16.

  On December 7 Judge Woods held another proceeding in the case, which Inner City Press also covered. Talk was of a virtual bench trial, whether to use Zoom or Microsoft Teams as successor to Skype, and whether lawyers would set up a podium in their remote location or just sit at a desk. Inner City Press hopes to cover the trial - to see it, as took place December 7 in a case in the District of Massachusetts, here.

The case is Polanco et al v. York Food Corp. et al., 19-cv-8815 (Woods)
