The opinion of the court was delivered by: Scullin, Senior Judge
After reviewing Plaintiffs' motion for emergency relief, all relevant supporting papers, and the applicable law, the Court finds that Plaintiffs have failed to allege facts which would justify this extraordinary relief. See Soler v. G. & U., Inc., 690 F.2d 301, 302-03 (2d Cir. 1982) (denying the plaintiffs' motion for preliminary injunction under the FLSA because they failed to demonstrate "any harm -- or 'chill' -- to other plaintiffs or prospective plaintiffs" in light of the fact that no plaintiffs had withdrawn from the case after the alleged retaliatory conduct occurred); see also Balentine v. Arkansas-Best Freight Sys., Inc., 750 F.2d 47, 51 (8th Cir. 1984) (holding that only the Secretary of Labor may seek an injunction for future violations of the FLSA) (citations omitted). Accordingly, the Court hereby
ORDERS that Plaintiffs' motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
