Date Filed#Document Text
August 3, 2017 19 Opinion or Order of the Court ORDER granting as modified 11 Motion. The Court certifies this group "All hourly construction workers employed by Defendants Ford Engineering, Inc. and Robert Trent Ford at any time between July 27, 2013 and August 3, 2017". It is not a class, it's a group pursuing a collective action. Calling it a class invites confusion because of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23. The Court approves the proposed notice, consent, and reminder postcard with some revision as follows: Add th e end date for the group; and replace all references to a class with references to the group or the collective action. The Court declines to make the other changes requested by Ford. Fords' spreadsheet of names should include home addresses and telephone numbers (home and cell). Nothing else is necessary. Signed by Judge D. P. Marshall Jr. on 8/3/2017. (jak)
