Case Summary
In December 2012, Plaintiffs, represented by Bryan Schwartz Law, sued Carey Limousine and its San Francisco affiliate alleging the drivers were misclassified as independent contractors, were not properly reimbursed for expenses, and other associated allegations.

In March 2013, following several months of discussions, a deposition of the Chief Financial Officer/Vice President of Finance of Defendants regarding the state of Defendants' finances, the exchange of documents and data, and negotiations through counsel experienced in these types of cases, the parties prepared extensive briefing and attended a mediation conducted by Mediator Baldwin Lee (a neutral who is part of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California's mediation panel, and who is experienced in settling wage and hour class actions). Counsel for the parties has debated extensively the claims' and defenses' merits and other issues relevant to evaluating this matter, both through the mediator and bilaterally. The parties reached a conditional, $750,000 settlement for the 72 class members in March 2013, which received preliminary court approval in July 2013.
