New Overtime Case Encourages Settlement

A Florida paralegal left her employer, only to turn around and sue for back overtime wages.  Neither she nor her attorney told her old firm that a lawsuit was coming, which resulted in annoyed appellate judges.  The moral of the story?  Make sure that, if you're suing for back overtime wages (or for anything else, really) that your lawyer contacts the defendant/defendant's attorney to see if settlement is a possibility.
