Derington filed a complaint on Sept. 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Fort Lauderdale Division against Belmar Development Associates LLC, Encore Housing Opportunity Fund II General Partner LLC, Tower 2 LLC and Royal Palm Cos. LLC citing the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was employed by the defendants from February 2015 to July.
