Bronx Deli Sued By Pastor For Lack of Overtime But Cold Feet Continue on Settlement

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 15 – Pastor Nestor Victor, a sandwich maker, sued Sam's Deli of 7 East 170th Street in The Bronx for not paying overtime.   

  On November 13 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Earlier, Judge Caproni had reminded the parties they cannot drop the suit without filing a settlement agreement or Department of Labor document.

 The question arose on November 13 there were really was a settlement, or cold feet. It was referred to the Magistrate Judge, Sarah L. Cave. The parties said they thought that had already happened.

On November 24 Magistrate Judge Cave held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it; to her credit, Judge Cave kept it open throughout.

 Judge Cave, noting that one of the parties was still resisting signing, said she is loathe to pressure parties to settle. But, she said, if the skittish party would be willing to speak with her, he has nothing to worry about.

   It appears there will be another call; it is unclear if it would be public, or docketed. Elsewhere in SDNY on November 24, another proceeding described as about issues with a settlement agreement that had been reached was abruptly deemed closed. There is a lack of transparency to the press and public, some perhaps understandable. We'll continue on this.

The case is Nestor Victor et al v. Sams Deli Grocery Corp. et al., 19-cv-2965 (Caproni / Cave)
