Hold On -- Did Someone Just Reverse Judge Moreno?



Am I reading this right?
Appellant Kathryn Pereda (“Pereda”) appeals the district court’s dismissal of her two-count complaint alleging interference and retaliation under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (“FMLA”), 29 U.S.C. § 2601, et seq., against Appellee Brookdale Senior Living Communities (“Brookdale”). The district court held that because Pereda was not an eligible employee at the time she was terminated, she could not bring either claim under the FMLA. This appeal presents an issue of first impression for this Circuit: whether the FMLA protects a preeligibility request for post-eligibility leave. We answer that question in the affirmative, and therefore reverse.
Hmm -- exception, rules and all that.

  2. Ditto...genius (Not Moreno, the spit compilation. Not that I don't think Moreno is genius, as far as he knows. Shit, do you think he can determine who is typing this?!)

  3. Sounds like Moreno was having a bad day. This seemed like a narrow interpretation of the FMLA law.

  5. The court system only works if you have money. A lawyer can lie and destroy your life for a criminal because he has money. But if the Florida bar really investigated they would find all the illegal things these two lawyers have done. When will they tell the judge that Salvatore Frieri is a criminal and is convicted for fraud.
