Bridges v. United States (Precedential)

Robert Bridges et al. (collectively “Appellants” or “officers”) filed suit in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (“Claims Court”) arguing that their federal employer must compensate them for certain travel time under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (“FLSA”), see Pub. L. No. 75-718, 52 Stat. 1060, and governing Office of Personnel Management (“OPM”) regulations. The Claims Court disagreed and granted the government’s motion for summary judgment. Bridges v.
