Before: BOOCHEVER, KOZINSKI and O'SCANNLAIN, Circuit Judges.

KOZINSKI, Circuit Judge.

Plaintiffs, 37 dealers at Hilton's Las Vegas casino, were terminated as they came off their shifts on September 2 and 3, 1983. They sued and obtained jury verdicts on several state and federal law claims. Hilton challenges plaintiffs' recovery on a variety of grounds, but because of the way we resolve the state law issues we need not discuss the difficult federal and constitutional issues raised by Hilton in its appeal.
