Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit issues one Indiana opinion today
In Vivian Brown v. Family Dollar Stores of Indiana (SD Ind., Judge McKinney), an 11-page opinion, Judge Rovner writes:
Plaintiff-Appellant Vivian Brown brought an action against her former employer, Family Dollar Stores of Indiana, LP (“Family Dollar”), alleging that Family Dollar failed to pay in a timely manner overtime wages due her in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, (“FLSA”), 29 U.S.C. 201 et seq., the Indiana Wage Payment Statute, Ind. Code § 22-2-5-1 et seq., and the Indiana Wage Claim Statute, Ind. Code § 22-9-1 et seq. The district court granted Family Dollar’s motion for summary judgment on the FLSA claim and the state claim for an unpaid incentive bonus, and dismissed the remaining state claims without prejudice. Brown now appeals that decision, and we reverse.
