The employees are asking the court to prevent the defendants from further violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and for an award of compensatory damages, liquidated damages, attorney's fees, costs and back pay.

The plaintiffs are represented by R. Glenn Cater and Amanda C. Graeber of Cater & Associates in New Orleans and Chris Edwards in Gretna.

U.S. District Judge Sarah S. Vance is assigned to the case.
