O'Connor v. Oakhurst Dairy, 16-1901

In a dispute between a Maine dairy company and its delivery drivers concerning the scope of an exemption from Maine's overtime law, 26 M.R.S.A. section 664(3), the district court's grant of summary judgment to defendant is reversed where: 1) the exemption's scope is not clear; and 2) because, under Maine law, ambiguities in the state's wage and hour laws must be construed liberally in order to accomplish their remedial purpose, the court adopts the drivers' narrower reading of the exemption.
