On June 6, 2003, a group of African American and Latino employees filed this class action under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1981, and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, Cal. Gov. Code § 12900 et seq., against their employer, FedEx, in Alameda County Superior Court.

On June 6, 2003, a group of African American and Latino employees filed this class action under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1981, and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, Cal. Gov. Code § 12900 et seq., against their employer, FedEx, in Alameda County Superior Court. The plaintiffs, represented by private counsel, asked the court for declaratory and injunctive relief, alleging that FedEx discriminated against its African American and Latino employees. Specifically, the plaintiffs contended that FedEx's promotions, compensation, and discipline practices were discriminatory. FedEx removed the case to the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

The plaintiffs filed a separate lawsuit on June 19, 2003,

The plaintiffs filed an Amended Complaint on October 12, 2005, reincorporating their allegations in accordance with the two certified classes and alleging both class and individual claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act. On January 17, 2007, Judge Illston dismissed the class claims certified under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act.

On April 13, 2007, the District Court provisionally certified settlement classes and preliminarily approved a class settlement. The court included directions on distribution of notice of the settlement and set a schedule for the final settlement approval process. 2007 WL 1114010 (N.D. Cal.). The settlement included a monetary award for the plaintiffs for more than $50 million; the plaintiffs also secured injunctive relief related to hiring, promotion, discipline, and reporting. This included training for those in charge of promotions and specific guidelines that would limit managerial discretion. The defendant also agreed to adjust discipline guidelines to make them more evenhanded and to require more detailed written documentation of the facts supporting their disciplinary actions. Finally, the agreement required FedEx to update the plaintiffs and their counsel throughout all four years of the consent decree.

On August 14, 2007, the District Court granted final approval to the consent decree and confirmed the final certification of the classes. 2007 WL 2343904. On the same day, the court granted the plaintiffs' motion for attorney’s fees and costs. Id.

On July 9, 2008, the District Court granted the defendant's motion for counterclaim and the parties agreed to dismiss the plaintiff's non-class claims with prejudice. The plaintiffs’ counsel disputed the amount of attorneys' fees they were entitled to for representing named plaintiffs on non-class claims. The court granted the defendant's motion to interplead 40% of the settlement funds to protect against paying duplicate attorney’s fees. 2008 WL 2705402.

Pursuant to a stipulation between the parties, the District Court dismissed all non-class claims on July 11, 2008. On December 29, 2008, the District Court awarded the plaintiffs' attorney’s fees related to their motion for declaratory relief. 2008 WL 5411470. Shortly after, the District Court denied the defendant’s motion for reconsideration of the award. They appealed.

The Ninth Circuit affirmed the award of attorney’s fees but vacated the imposition of sanctions on June 16, 2010. On August 11, 2011 the Court of Appeals again affirmed the District Court’s decision to grant the plaintiffs' counsel $46,605.87 in attorney’s fees and costs after the defendant challenged the amount. 439 Fed. App'x 644 (9th Cir. 2011). The Court of Appeals awarded attorneys' fees to the plaintiffs’ counsel on November 17, 2011.

On February 22, 2012, the plaintiffs' counsel notified the court that they had reached a settlement on how the attorney’s fees were to be distributed and requested that the court dismiss the action and the pending petition for rehearing before the Ninth Circuit. The court dismissed the case and it is now closed.
