Keith v. University of Miami

437 F. Supp. 3d 1167 (S.D. Fla. 2020). The Firm represented a private university and a program director in a lawsuit brought by a former employee. The employee alleged that she was terminated by the university for raising complaints about her entitlement to overtime compensation and health-insurance benefits. She sued her former employer (the university) and supervisor (the program director) under the Fair Labor Standards Act. In a case of first impression, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida dismissed the lawsuit, with prejudice, for failure to state a claim, adopting the arguments advanced by the Firm.
