When Cafe Tabaco Is Sued For Overtime Now Discovery Sanctions Awarded at $450 an Hour

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial Book - NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 25 – Ricardo Ortiz sued Cafe Tabaco & Ron at 501 West 214th Street in Upper Manhattan for failure to pay overtime.

 On August 23, 2022 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  There was talk of possible sanctions, and discovery violations.

One counsel asked that the case continue by telephone until the time of trial, since he lives in and works out of the Poconos in Pennsylvania.   

 A formal motion for sanctions is due by September 9. There was a next conference on October 24 at 11 am - and Inner City Press covered it.

Judge Parker addressed the acts of Ismael Garcia, who did not show up for deposition - she found the amount of sanctions requested excessive, but awarded "only" $450 an hour for partner time, for $825.

The case is Ortiz et al v. Eskina 214 Corp. et al., 21-cv-1537 (Carter / Parker)
