http://cases.justia.com/federal/appellate-courts/ca8/14-3232/14-3232-2015-08-21.pdf?ts=1440171062 This case in Missouri had the ICs awarded a summary judgement. On appeal the 8th district sent it back saying a reasonable jury could determine the IC classification was correct. If you read through it, it covers many arguments for or against the classification. A point of interest to me was it seems every plaintiff needs to try their case separately as they weren't a class. According to Missouri law IC classification is a matter of fact so individual treatment and circumstances matter. So for people here that means even if FedEx loses the model does not crumble, business continues as always. I don't know if Missouri is ISP yet, but if not it's time to get up to scale if you contract there.
