A Virginia-based medical staffing agency will not be held in civil contempt for failing to comply with a court order because the agency provided a good-faith defense for its delayed compliance with paying overtimes under the Fair Labor Standards Act, a federal judge held.

U.S. District Judge Raymond A. Jackson of the Eastern District of Virginia filed a memorandum opinion and order Nov. 29, dismissing an order to show cause against Medical Staffing of America, doing business as Steadfast Medical Staffing, to sanction the agency for violating a January 2022 court order.
