NATCA NATIONAL OFFICE DEPARTMENTAL WEEK IN REVIEW August 5 - 11 , 2017 OFFICE OF NATCA GENERAL COUNSEL UPDATE ON FLSA SUIT In its March 31, 2017 decision in this case, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims directed the parties to file a joint stipulation by Jul y 30 of the individual damages due to each of the NATCA plaintiffs. At the last minute, the Department of Justice requested a two - week extension of this deadline. The Court granted the extension with the caveat that any further requests for extensions woul d not be granted absent a showing of extraordinary circumstances. The Department of Justice ha d begun working with counsel representing the NATCA plaintiffs on compilation of a final list of damages, and NATCA anticipate d that the parties would meet the Co urt's new deadline of Aug. 14, 2017 for the damages submission. However, we learned on Aug. 15, 2017 that the Court has granted another one - week extension for the submission of the stipulation on damages because the expert assisting with the calculations was unavailable over the past week. The calculations should be finalized this week, and the Court has issued a new deadline of Aug. 21, 2017 for the submission. NATCA will provide additional information once that submission has been made. Any questions a bout the status of the case should be directed to NATCA General Counsel Marguerite L. Graf ( ).
