Morrison v. County of Fairfax, 14-2308

In a suit under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), involving the question of whether the fire captains of Fairfax County, Virginia, firefighters who serve as first responders to fires and other emergencies, fall within that exception so that they are not entitled to overtime compensation, the District Court's judgment in favor of the Government, finding that the fire captains are exempt, is reversed where no reasonable jury could find by the requisite clear and convincing evidence that any of the Captains is exempt from the FLSA's overtime requirement.
