HOUSTON - Gold buyers may proceed with their class wage and hour suit but may represent only other buyers in a single county in Texas, a Texas federal judge ruled Sept. 24, denying a motion to dismiss and granting in part a motion for conditional certification (Alicia Rodriguez, et al. v. Gold & Silver Buyers, Inc., et al., No. 12-1831, S.D. Texas; 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 136332).
