Ind. Decisions - One Indiana decision today from 7th Circuit

In Lisa Hicks v. Avery Drei, LLC (SD Ind., Magnus-Stinson), an 18-page opinion, Judge Kanne writes:

Lisa Hicks worked for Chance Felling and his hotel management company, Avery Drei, LLC, as a security guard and then as a desk clerk during the construction and operation of a new hotel in the Indianapolis area. After being terminated from her job as a desk clerk, Hicks sued Felling and Avery Drei (the “Defendants”) seeking unpaid wages, overtime pay, and accrued vacation pay. The district court granted the Defendants’ motion for judgment as a matter of law on Hicks’s vacation pay claim and a portion of their similar motion on her overtime pay claim. The jury returned a verdict in the Defendants’ favor on the remaining portion of her overtime wages claim. Hicks appeals, challenging both the district court’s denial of her pretrial motion to prevent the Defendants’ introduction of belated evidence of cash payments and its interpretations of the law in granting the judgments as a matter of law. We affirm. * * *

CUDAHY, Circuit Judge, concurring in part and concurring in the judgment. * * *
