Attorneys representing a group of Staten Island Amazon fulfillment center workers and their families on Wednesday asked a panel of judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit to revive their lawsuit against the company, which they allege put workers at risk amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Karla Gilbride of Public Justice argued on behalf of the plaintiffs, contending that U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan of the Eastern District of New York was wrong to find that the doctrine of primary jurisdiction applies to their claims.
