As Mr. Glasser discusses, the federal bench is responding to the #MeToo movement. The newly formed Federal Judiciary Workplace Conduct Working Group will review workplace harassment policies in the federal judiciary. This initiative grew from a pledge U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts made following the resignation of Ninth Circuit judge Alex Kozinski last year amidst accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior. The group will survey common workplace policies, talk to jurists and other employees in the judiciary, and compile a report with recommendations.

As Mr. Glasser discusses, casino trainees could be entitled to minimum wage. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit recently revived a class action suit from a group of trainees at a casino in Maryland. Applicants who wanted to work the casino's new table games were expected to attend a 12-week “dealer school,” during which they went mostly unpaid. Several of the trainees sued, alleging that the practice violated the Fair Labor Standards Act. Though the district court dismissed the case, the Fourth Circuit ruled that the company could be found to be the primary beneficiary of the training and remanded the case for further fact-finding.
