Appeal from United States District Court, Middle District of Alabama; Frank M. Johnson, Jr., Chief Judge.

Before GEWIN, GOLDBERG and DYER, Circuit Judges.


The appellants complain of the decision of the district court in an action brought by the Secretary of Labor under the provisions of 17 of the Fair Labor Standards Act, 29 U.S.C. 217. The Secretary contended that the appellants (employers) were violating provisions of 15(a) (2) and 15(a) (5) of the Act and sought an injunction to restrain such violations and further to restrain the appellants from withholding payment of minimum wages and overtime compensation alleged to be due certain employees. Since the case was submitted upon a written stipulation of facts, there is no factual dispute under review. The district court granted the relief sought except that it refused to enjoin and restrain the appellants from future violations of the Act.1 

We have given full consideration to the contentions of the parties and find ourselves in agreement with the opinion and judgment of the district court. George P. Shultz (James D. Hodgson), Secretary of Labor v. William P. Morris and Warren G. Morris, 315 F. Supp. 558 (M.D. Ala. 1970).

The judgment is affirmed.



The Petition for Rehearing is denied and no member of this panel nor Judge in regular active service on the Court having requested that the Court be polled on rehearing en banc, (Rule 35 Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure; Local Fifth Circuit Rule 12) the Petition for Rehearing En Banc is denied.


The appellants do not here contest the findings and conclusions of the district court that the three stores involved did constitute an 'enterprise' within the meaning of the Act as amended
