Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik said in a July 25 statement that it filed the lawsuit in Sacramento Superior Court. It did not say how many employees or how much money was involved in the Brown v. Novo Nordisk suit. "According to the wage and hour class-action complaint filed against the drug company, Novo Nordisk violated California overtime laws by failing to pay pharmaceutical sales representatives for overtime hours worked," the law firm said.
