LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The civil trial has begun in the case involving members of Louisville Metro Police’s SWAT team.
At least 41 current and former members said they are due a lot of overtime pay.
They claim the department’s on-call policy violates labor laws.
That limits personal activities and the SWAT members said the city should pay for that time.
On-call team members are only paid for the time they spend responding to calls.
The case began on July 20.
