By FindLaw Staff on January 28, 2010 8:56 AM

In plaintiffs' suit against defendant-Port Authority under the FLSA, alleging they were denied proper overtime pay as helicopter pilots, summary judgment in favor of plaintiffs is affirmed where: 1) Port Authority helicopter pilots are not "learned professionals" and are not exempt from the provisions of the FLSA; 2) district court correctly concluded that Port Authority's violation of the FLSA was not willful, and that plaintiffs were thus entitled to only two years of back pay, not three; and 3) district court did not abuse its discretion in awarding prejudgment interest to plaintiffs.
