Judge Analisa Torres of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York ordered conditional certification of a collective action brought by Bridge and Tunnel Officers against the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority, in the action titled: Mercado et al. v. Metropolitan Transportation Authority et al., 1:20-cv-06533 (S.D.N.Y.).
