Where an estate administrator challenged a district court order that modified the attorney’s fees in an underlying settlement agreement, any authority for judicial approval of FLSA settlements does not extend to the review of settled attorneys’ fees, so the district court lacked the authority to review the fees, so that portion of the judgment is vacated.
Vacated in part.
