  • Wagner v. Murphy Oil USA, Inc., 139 Fed. Appx. 131 (11th Cir. 2005):  Jury verdict for the defendant in FLSA case affirming that that former store manager was properly classified for wage/hour purposes and therefore exempt from overtime.

Obesity and the ADA: Coverage for a Large Group

By Wade W. Herring, II, published on November 28, 2000, in Employment Publication.

“But wait a bit,” the Oysters cried,
“Before we have our chat;
For some of us are out of breath,
And all of us are fat!”
The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll

Does obesity constitute a disability under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 or the Americans with Disabilities Act? Statistics indicate that the percentage of Americans who are overweight is steadily increasing. The United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit decision in the case of Cook v. State of Rhode Island, Dept. of MHRH renewed debate about whether obesity is a disability protected by law.

Water, Water Everywhere, Better Call the Corps: Section 404 Regulation of Wetlands

By Andrew H. Ernst and Wade W. Herring, II, published on April 4, 1990, in Mercer Law Review 41, no. 34, Rev. 843.

I. WHY CONSIDER WHETHER AN AREA IS A WETLAND?

A real estate developer may acquire property for commercial, residential, agricultural, or industrial use only to discover that the United States Army Corps of Engineers (the “Corps”) or the Environmental Protection Agency (the “EPA”) can thwart the development plans if they discover “jurisdictional wetlands” on the property. (see end note 1) Section 404 (see end note 2) of the Clean Water Act (see end note 3) (the “CWA”), also known as the Federal Water Pollution Prevention Control Act of 1972, regulates the filling of various wetlands and has become increasingly important and controversial over the last few years as the Corps and EPA have stepped up enforcement actions against unsuspecting developers. Should a developer inadvertently begin work in a wetland without benefit of a permit, or should it intentionally attempt to circumvent the Act, the Corps and EPA have available both administrative and judicial remedies to stop the developer’s work on its project. (see end note 4)
