What ensued in the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and in a 29-page court decision handed down on Monday, was an exercise in high-stakes grammar pedantry that could cost a dairy company in Portland, Me., My first question on this was how on earth do truck drivers qualify for being exempt on a federal law level? You’ve probably heard about the company in Maine that will end up shelling out around $10 million due to the lack of an Oxford comma.
