Ind. Decisions - Indiana case before the SCOTUS on Monday
The case is Sandifer v. U.S. Steel Corporation, and here is the SCOTUSblog casepage, linking to Judge Posner's 7th Circuit opinion, arising out of an appeal from the USDC, ND Ind., by Judge Miller, Jr.
Samuel Bagensto, a law prof at the University of Michigan Law School, writing as a guest at SCOTUSblog, has an argument preview today, that begins:
What constitutes “changing clothes”? A simple question, perhaps, but one the Court is poised to decide in Sandifer v. United States Steel Corporation, to be argued on Monday. In Sandifer, the Court will interpret a provision of the Fair Labor Standards Act that allows employers and labor unions to negotiate collective bargaining agreements that exclude from compensable working time “any time spent in changing clothes or washing at the beginning or end of each workday.”
