From the article:
Class action overtime lawsuit filed against Sun Microsystems
Article Launched: 05/14/2008 06:03:13 PM PDT

Dani Hoenemier says she worked long days as a technical writer for Sun
Microsystems, sometimes spending over 60 hours a week at her computer
when the company was preparing a new product release.

Sun's technical writers may earn salaries of $100,000 a year, but they
don't get overtime pay for the extra hours, according to Hoenemier's
attorney, who is challenging the company's practice of treating
Hoenemier and about 300 other writers as exempt from state labor laws
governing overtime and breaks.
