Following is an excerpt:

With this ruling, along with the 2nd Circuit ruling, “you have another nail in the coffin of the Department of Labor trying to overreach and assert that persons are employees when they are indeed not employees. In these cases, they are more appropriately students,” said Evan J. Spelfogel, a partner with Epstein Becker & Green P.C. in New York.

Mr. Spelfogel pointed to Labor Department guidance issued in July on classifying workers as employee versus independent contractors, which emphasizes the alleged misclassification of many workers as independent contractors.
