This article by Robert Hilson describes the case of Lola v. Skadden in which Lola, a contract attorney, sued his employer for overtime wages after being paid $25 per hour. The case was dismissed by the lower court holding that Lola was engaged in the practice of law and, therefore, exempt from any labor laws requiring overtime pay. This case is currently up on appeal in the 2nd Circuit.
