July 30, 2013 82 Opinion or Order of the Court ORDER: By letter dated June 19, 2013, the parties informed the court that they had reached a settlement in principle and expected to file stipulation of dismissal without prejudice under Rule 41(1)(A)(ii). In response to the Court's July 18 orde r, the parties wrote in a letter dated July 26, 2013, that the parties plan to provide a settlement agreement shortly and a fairness hearing is not necessary. Although Picerni v. Bilingual Seit & Preschool Inc., No. 12 Civ. 4938, 2013 WL 646649 (E. D.N.Y. Feb. 22, 2013 ), has raised doubts about the need of fairness hearings in settlements under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the weight of authority in this Circuit holds otherwise. See, e.g., Wolinsky v. Scholastic, Inc., 900 F. Supp. 2d 332, 33 5 (S.D.N.Y. 2012) (holding that when "an employee... settle[s] an FLSA claim for unpaid wages for less than the full statutory damages" without supervision by the Secretary of Labor, a district court "must scrutinize the settlement agr eement to determine that the settlement is fair and reasonable"). By August 9, 2013, the parties shall e-mail a letter updating the Court as to the status of settlement. In addition, the parties' obligation to send a joint pretrial order a nd related filings pursuant this Court's Individual Practices by August 26, 2013, remains in effect. Finally, the parties are reminded to send letters as PDF e-mail attachments in accordance with the Court's Individual Practices. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Analisa Torres on 7/30/2013) (rsh)
