Genesis HealthCare Corp. v. Symczyk: Supreme Court Hears Oral Argument in FLSA Action

The Supreme Court of the United States yesterday heard oral argument in Genesis HealthCare Corp. v. Symczyk (Case No. 11-1059), which presents the following issue:  
Whether a case becomes moot, and thus beyond the judicial power of Article III, when the lone plaintiff receives an offer from the defendants to satisfy all of the plaintiff's claims. 
The Court's docket sheet is here, transcripts of the oral argument are here, and SCOTUSblog has a report on the argument here.  

I have mentioned before that I am organizing a series of webinars on new decisions for the State Bar of California's Labor and Employment Law Section.  Genesis HealthCare is one of the decisions that we will cover, likely within a week or two of the Court issuing the decision.  Stay tuned for more information.
