UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
March 23, 2011
EIJI SUDA, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: John G. Koeltl, District Judge:
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER
The parties' settlement of the plaintiffs' FLSA claims is fair and reasonable, and their application for approval of the settlement and dismissal of the suit with prejudice is therefore granted. See, e.g., Boucad v. City of New York, No. 07 Civ. 11098, 2010 WL 4813784, at *1 (S.D.N.Y. Nov. 16, 2010) (discussing standards to be applied in approving FLSA settlement). There is also a sufficient showing that the amount of the settlement payments should be redacted from the settlement agreement that is filed publicly. See United States v. Amodeo, 71 F.3d 1044, 1050-52 (2d Cir. 1995) (discussing balancing test to be applied when party seeks to file judicial document under seal). The unredacted settlement agreement will be filed under seal.
