8th Circuit Vacates Denial Of Prevailing Defendants’ Bill Of Costs In FLSA Suit

(June 6, 2016, 1:22 PM EDT) -- ST. LOUIS — An Eighth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on June 2 vacated a trial court’s denial of an employer’s bill of costs in a wage-and-hour suit in which it prevailed, finding that the trial court erred when it found that the employer is precluded from recovering costs due in part to the Fair Labor Standard Act’s (FLSA) silence on the issue (Chad Lochridge, et al. v. Lindsey Management Co., Inc., No. 14-3799, 8th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 10000).
