Judge Orders Class Action Notice Be Sent To U.S. Open Referees
Published April 24, 2013
The notice does not give the USTA a deadline of when to provide to the plaintiffs a list of referees who could be mailed the notice. The judge only ruled on the federal claims, which means a referee would have to opt in to the class action. There is also a separate New York state claim under which if a notice went out, the referees would then have to opt out. Hundreds of referees are alleged to have been short-changed in their pay under the complaint.
