Dismissed: Truck dispatcher’s suit over overtime wages

By David Yates | Jun 9, 2016

MARSHALL – A truck dispatcher who sued his employer claiming that he was not paid overtime wages has dismissed the action.

Michael Juno, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed suit against Martin Resource Management Corp. on July 17, 2013, in the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division.

Court records show that on Dec. 16 Juno filed a motion to dismiss with prejudice, stating he no longer wishes to pursue the action against Martin Resource and that all claims have been resolved.

The following day U.S. District Judge Rodney Gilstrap granted the motion and ordered the cause dismissed.

According to the original petition, Juno was employed at Martin Resource as a truck dispatcher job and claims he was not paid overtime wages at one and one-half times his regular hourly rate for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a work week.

Juno claimed that the defendant’s failure to pay overtime pay was intentional.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of similarly situated employees, who were not paid for all overtime hours worked by Martin Resource.

The defendant was accused of violating the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The plaintiff sought an award of damages for unpaid overtime, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, and court costs.

Juno was represented by William S. Hommel Jr. of Hommel Law Firm in Tyler.

Case No. 2:13-cv-00549
