Texas judge denies DOL motion to stay proceedings against overtime litigation

Judge Amos Mazzant of the Eastern District of Texas denied the motion of the United States Department of Labor on Tuesday, January 3 to do away with more district court proceedings in relation to the existing overtime litigation.

The United States Department of Labor asked the district court to refrain from taking any further action until the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit rules on the interlocutory appeal of the injunction. The district court has already issued a preliminary injunction blocking the DOL’s new overtime rule from taking effect.

Still pending at the district court are the motions of the plaintiffs for summary judgment, which seeks a permanent injunction of the overtime rule, and a motion filed by the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations to intervene in the legal complaint.
