Guttentag v. Abercrombie & Fitch Stores, Inc.

In an Order entered yesterday, Judge Kenneth L. Ryskamp, of the Federal District Court for the District of South Florida recused himself, after the Plaintiff’s attorneys filed a Motion seeking the recusal. Plaintiff’s attorneys cited to the Judge’s statements in prior cases referring to all FLSA claims as “nuisance type claims.” The motion also highlighted language from a prior Order written by the Judge referring to FLSA cases as “just a lawyer’s retirement bill.”
