Editor's Note :
In previous years, the Court released orders the morning after the Court’s “Long Conference.” It has not done so this year.

Kaplan v. Code Blue Billing & Coding, Inc.
Petition for certiorari denied on November 12, 2013
Issue: (1) What is the proper test for determining when
an intern or extern is a “trainee” not entitled to the minimum wage protections of an
“employee” under Sections 203(e)(1) and (g) of the
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA); and (2) whether the Department of Labor's s six-factor test for excluding
“interns” from FLSA protections is entitled to
deference, when the factors are inconsistent
with this Court’s precedents in Walling v. Portland Terminal Co. and Tony & Susan Alamo Foundation v. Secretary of Labor .
