The Express has lost a lawsuit filed by its ex-sales and marketing director who claimed that he was illegally denied overtime by the newspaper under its former ownership and its former publisher, Jody Colley. The First District Court of Appeal overturned a lower court decision in favor of the Express, ruling that the newspaper should have paid overtime to Terry Furry before he left the newspaper four years ago.
