Overton Hotel settles labor lawsuit with ex-manager


Last year Kerri Wike, the former restaurant manager for the Overton Hotel, filed a labor lawsuit.  Wike claimed she was fired in violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act.

At the time, the management company for the Overton, 1859 Historic Hotels Ltd., denied the allegations. Now the two sides have settled out of court. 

Last week a U.S. District Judge signed an order that says, "The parties have indicated to the Court that they have settled this case."  Then on Tuesday morning the case was closed. 

Court records say the two sides reached a confidential deal after mediation. Other details of the settlement were not listed in court records.
