Cintas Workers Denied Punitives in License Plate Case

Cintas As we reported last year, UNITE HERE (back when it existed) was held to have violated federal Drivers' Privacy Protection Act by getting employees' addresses from their license plates.  However, as reported by BNA's Daily Labor Report (subscription required), the district court has just denied punitive damages for the plaintiffs, finding that the union did not act with reckless disregard for the law.  The court also denied the union's claim that it was entitled to a jury trial for damages under the statute.
