    Lawyers for FedEx Drivers Laud Federal Appeals Court Ruling Denying Company's Appeal of Driver Class Certification - CNN Money

    Lawyers for FedEx Ground/Home Delivery drivers who have been misclassified as independent contractors instead of employees today are hailing the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit upholding the granting of class certification by the U.S. District Court in Indiana.


    The three-judge panel yesterday rejected FedEx's request to review the nationwide class certification of the drivers' claim for employee benefits under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and other state claims, said Lynn Rossman, lead counsel for the drivers in their nationwide class action.
