The DOL under the Trump administration walked back the guidance Nov. 8. The next day, the DOL asked for a delay so it could “more fully” prepare its response.
Paul DeCamp, an attorney in the Washington office of Epstein Becker & Green P.C. who represents the Restaurant Law Center and its co-plaintiff, the Texas Restaurant Association, said the case likely would become moot.
The DOL again asked Judge Robert Pitman of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas for a delay so it could continue working with the plaintiffs to resolve the case. Their counsel doesn’t oppose the request, the DOL said.
