Verizon Communications Inc. hoped to convince a New York federal judge
to kill a suit accusing it of stiffing strike replacement workers on
overtime pay with its argument that the claims didn't belong in
the Empire State, but it was rewarded with a transfer instead.

Since the trio of strike workers bringing the proposed class action
claim the wage violations happened in Washington, D.C., where they
worked, the case belongs there, U.S. District Judge Paul G. Gardephe
ruled Tuesday.
