(October 15, 2015, 10:07 AM EDT) -- MADISON, Wis. — A Wisconsin federal judge on Oct. 13 dismissed claims brought by dump truck drivers under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), finding that they were exempt from overtime pay under the Motor Carrier Act, and ruled that the drivers waived their rights to bring their state claims on behalf of a class because they failed to move for certification (Greg Bakkestuen, et al. v. Lepke Holdings LLC, et al., No. 14-700, W.D. Wis.; 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 138969).
