United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee;
Docket No: 13-245
Counsel: Justin Swidler, Richard Swartz
This action was filed on July 26, 2013. The Plaintiffs, who were over-the-road truck drivers of U.S. Xpress who participated in U.S. Xpress’s over-the-road training program, filed a federal lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee asserting that U.S. Xpress failed to pay them and thousands of other truck drivers at least the mandated minimum wage as required by the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”).
Swartz Swidler represented the over-the-road drivers in their fight against US Xpress.
The case settled on behalf of several thousand drivers who chose to join the case. The lawsuit is now closed.
