Law360 Covers Berke-Weiss Law's Successful Defeat of Motion to Dismiss in Unpaid Wages Case

On April 17, 2023, U.S. District Judge Lewis J. Liman denied a motion by Defendant nonprofit organization FCBC Community Development Corporation who sought dismissal of Plaintiff Kyndra Frazier’s wage claims. Judge Liman held that Plaintiff Kyndra Frazier, represented by Senior Associate Alex Berke, can proceed with the wage action against her former employer because she sufficiently claimed that although she was a Pastor, she was also employed in a secular capacity. Berke-Weiss Law's successful defeat of defendant's motion to dismiss allows Plaintiff Kyndra Frazier to proceed with her claims in the Southern District of New York.
