Judge Altonaga Disqualifies Law Firm for "Switching Sides" in FLSA Action.

If you do such a good job prosecuting FLSA actions against a defendant, can the defendant hire you to represent it in subsequent FLSA actions involving the same alleged misclassification brought by a different lawyer?

Judge Altonaga, in a well-written and well-reasoned order, says NO WAY:
The Court cannot but agree with Plaintiff that Kleppin’s conduct has had every appearance of  impropriety — an unsurprising conclusion since the conduct is actually improper.
Don't you just love the economy of language in that sentence?

Not if you're Kleppin.
