Judge Cohn Certifies Class of Gulfstream Poker Dealers.


 This doesn't seem like much of a claim, but allegedly Gulfstream does not properly pay the right portion of tips to their poker dealers, who apparently already make $32 per hour:
Defendant opposes notification for several reasons. First, Defendant argues that Plaintiff has failed to meet his burden that other individuals wish to opt in to this lawsuit.  Defendant contends that because Plaintiff and other poker-dealers make $32 per hour already, they would not be concerned with the potential recovery of an extra $1 per hour if they opted in to this action. Second, Defendant contends that Plaintiff has failed to identify a specific individual who desires to opt in to this action. Finally, Defendant argues that because it has already offered to settle this action with Plaintiff and the poker-dealer affiants for full FLSA damages and attorney’s fees, the action is essentially moot.
You shouldn't count other people's money, but on the other hand that's pretty good coin!

Why'd you go to law school again?
