NEW YORK - A split Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on Nov. 6 held that an employer's appeal of attorney fees in a settled wage-and-hour dispute was untimely because it was filed more than 30 days after the settlement was approved (Miguel G. Perez, et al. v. AC Roosevelt Food Corporation, et al., No. 13-497, 2nd Cir.; 2013 U.S. App. LEXIS 22500).
