(SUMMITVILLE) - An Indiana federal court has ruled against a former central Indiana marshal who is seeking back pay from the town of Summitville.

The (Anderson) Herald Bulletin reports the federal court in southern Indiana ruled state minimum wage law says former Summitville marshal Tony Hendrick isn't entitled to the back pay.

Hendrick sued the Madison County town last year. A Madison County judge ruled against Hendrick, saying that the town didn't qualify as an employer because it only had two full-time employees.

Hendrick argues he regularly worked between 130 and 140 hours per week as marshal, including on-call time. He says the town didn't give him the overtime or minimum wage pay. He retired in October 2013 after three decades working with the town of about 1,000 residents.
