Judge blocks Obama-backed rule extending overtime pay

A federal judge in Texas this evening blocked a U.S. Department of Labor rule extending overtime pay to more than 4 million U.S. workers.

The Obama-backed rule had been scheduled to take effect Dec. 1, and many employers nationwide had changed the way they pay workers to meet the requirements of the new rule.

The emergency, nationwide injunction may not permanently block the rule change, but does block its Dec. 1 mandatory implementation.

U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant in Sherman heard arguments in the motion for a preliminary injunction on Nov. 16.
