Department of Labor interpretation of the issue; the interpretation was contrary to long-standing agency policy that such employees were not protected by the Act.
A discussion of administrative deference also arose in the context of a disputed regulation issued by the U. Patent and Trademark Office. The Patent Office instituted inter partes review and ultimately canceled a number of the claims made in the patent, in part by applying a new interpretive standard set forth in a Patent Office regulation.
This issue was raised in the case of Cuozzo Speed Technologies v. Lee, discussed above in the context of administrative deference. The Court periodically issues per curiam reversals of circuit decisions involving civil rights and attorney fee issues where the appellate court, through negligence or inadvertence, clearly has misconstrued or misapplied long-standing Supreme Court precedent on the issue.
Robins, the most anticipated standing case, focused on the injury-in-fact requirement. Look for the issue that was presented in the petition for certiorari to return to the Supreme Court. The Court also focused on injury in fact in Wittman v. Personhuballah, an appeal filed by members of Congress from Virginia; those members had intervened in a case brought by voters who challenged the redrawing of their district as an unconstitutional gerrymander.
A three-judge district court ruled for the voters and ordered a new districting plan.

The Court assumed, without deciding, that this type of injury could be legally cognizable; however, the Court found no evidence of this harm in the record.
Gomez looked at whether a class action becomes moot when the defendant offers the individual named plaintiff full settlement of the claim but the plaintiff rejects the offer.
Gomez, who was nearly 40 and had not consented to receiving texts, filed a class action against Campbell-Ewald; Gomez cited the Telecommunications Consumer Protection Act, which prohibits automatic telephone dialing systems from contacting individuals without their consent.
United States involved an exception to the mootness doctrine. Kingdomware, a veteran-owned small business, brought an action for declaratory and injunctive relief; Kingdomware argued that the government had not followed procurement rules requiring the set-asides.
However, after the case was filed, the requested relief could not be granted because the contracts in dispute had been completed. Thus there was no live controversy. For example, Wal-Mart Stores v. Dukes refused to certify a nationwide class of employees because the Court rejected the statistical evidence the employees used to establish a common policy of discrimination and, thus, common questions of fact as required by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure Because Tyson had failed to keep records of donning and doffing times, the employees had been forced to prove injury by using representational evidence, studies by experts who used videos of donning and doffing in the plant to determine average donning and doffing times and, from there, to determine which employees were entitled to overtime pay.
Relying on Wal-Mart, Tyson Foods called for a rule banning the use of representational evidence to establish liability. While the experiences of the employees in Wal-Mart bore little relationship to one another, in this case each employee worked in the same facility, did similar work, and was paid under the same policy.
