On October 22, 2012, the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee granted final approval to the proposed settlement of four lawsuits against Swift Transportation Company, Inc. consolidated under the lead case Ham et al. v. Swift Transportation Company, Inc., W.D. Tenn. case number 2:09-cv-02145. The settlement includes the claims of the following class of individuals that the Court certified on July 1, 2011:
All former students of the Swift Academy who, from May 2005 through February 2008, received a Tennessee commercial driver’s license (“CDL”) while enrolled at Swift and who subsequently were sent notice from the Tennessee Department of Safety or another state motor vehicle bureau that they needed to be re-tested in order to maintain their CDL because the original CDL testing they received through Swift was improper.
