LOS ANGELES, Calif. (Legal Newsline) – A former unpaid intern is suing the LA Clippers after he claims the team misclassified him and other unpaid interns in an effort to reduce labor costs. Frank Cooper, who worked as a fan relations intern, claims LAC Basketball Club Inc. and the Sterling Family Trust violated the Fair Labor Standards Act and California labor laws. Ranallo Cooper and other unpaid interns were required to do the same work as paid employees, but without financial compensation, according to a complaint filed June 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.
