Don’t fault employment lawyers attending oral arguments at the Supreme Court this week for feeling a vague sense of d�j� vu. For the second time in seven years, the justices will hear arguments concerning Harris County, Texas, and its compensatory time policy for law enforcement personnel.

Klevenhagen, 508 U.S. 22 (1993) — the Court held that the county could institute its policy pursuant to individual agreements with its employees. On Feb. 23, in Christensen v. Harris County, No. 98-1167 , the Court will decide whether the county may lawfully force its law enforcement officers to use their comp time on dates that best serve the county’s personnel requirements.
