The Court agreed with Plaintiff's arguments and refused to dismiss the lawsuit
(PRWEB) June 03, 2013
On May 28, 2013, the Honorable Judge Michelle Rosenblatt adopted her previous tentative ruling and denied Keenan & Associates' (“Keenan”) motion for summary judgment in a class action lawsuit alleging that Keenan failed to pay their Claims Examiners overtime wages. See Gentile v. Keenan & Associates, currently pending in the Los Angeles Superior Court for the State of California, Case No. BC471005.
The Los Angeles employment law attorneys at Blumenthal Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a brief opposing Keenan's motion for summary judgment, arguing that Keenan failed to carry their burden that Plaintiff came within the California overtime exemptions. The Court agreed with the Plaintiff's attorneys stating that there is a triable question about whether the plaintiff's day-to-day responsibilities involved enough independent judgment to exempt her from overtime pay.
The purported class action lawsuit will now continue to proceed in the Los Angeles Superior Court before the Honorable Judge Michelle Rosenblatt.
