IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. C 10-1969 SI
ORDER DIRECTING SUPPLEMENTAL
BRIEFING ON DEFENDANTS’ MOTION
FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT
United States District Court
For the Northern District of California
C&H SUGAR COMPANY, INC., AMERICAN
SUGAR REFINING INC., and DOES 1-100,
On November 8, 2012, the Court heard oral argument on defendants’ motion for summary
judgment. Defendants moved for summary judgment on plaintiff’s ninth cause of action for failure to
pay overtime, because they contend that Leatherbury was properly categorized as an exempt employee
as the manager of union employees. As to this classification claim, the parties have not fully briefed
the legal standard, the proper categorization of Leatherbury’s various tasks, and in particular whether
Leatherbury recommended that any employee be hired or fired, or whether those recommendations were
given particular weight.
The Court hereby ORDERS both parties to submit supplemental briefing on the issue of
Leatherbury’s classification as an exempt employee, to be submitted to the Court by November 19,
2012. The remainder of the summary judgment motion will remain under submission until receipt of
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: November 8, 2012
