WASHINGTON Oct 3 The U.S. Supreme Court on
Monday declined to hear GEICO General Insurance Co's appeal of a
ruling that the No. 2 auto insurer in the United States must pay
overtime wages to its claims investigators after the company had
sought to exempt them.
GEICO had challenged a 2015 decision by the Richmond,
Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that its
investigators are eligible for overtime under federal wage laws.
GEICO, headquartered in Chevy Chase, Maryland, is a subsidiary
of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
