San Francisco, CA -- (PRnetwire) -- January 24, 2002 -- seven (7) plaintiffs have slapped the nation's largest car maker, Ford Motor Company, and one of the largest rental car companies, Hertz Corporation, with a racial discrimination suit for assigning them to work in a location that was deplorable, having no restroom facility, and without having obtained occupational use permits.

"This suit sends a message to corporate America that discrimination in any form won't be tolerated," said attorney Waukeen Q. McCoy, who represents the seven plaintiffs in the case. "This case begins to dismantle the 'good old boys' network and plantation mentality that leads to discrimination and victimization." McCoy was the lead plaintiffs' attorney in the largest U.S. history racial discrimination suit, Carroll v. Interstate Brands Corporation, which rendered a verdict for $133 million in August of 2000.

The lawsuit, filed in January. 18, 2001, alleged that racial minorities at the Companies' Belmont location in Belmont, California were systematically abused, given the assignment to work in deplorable conditions, without having obtaining a occupational use permits from the City of Belmont, and were denied benefits, promotions, and after they complained of racial discrimination, four out of the seven plaintiffs were terminated. Workers were forbidden to have access to use bathrooms as white workers, and white workers were not assigned to the location.

Plaintiffs are requesting an unspecified amount of compensatory and punitive damages. Plaintiffs' intend to amend their prayer for damages to the amount of 30 million dollars on the day of trial. The trial in this matter, Chen, et al., v. Hertz, Corp. and Ford Motor Company, Superior Court Case No: 415551, is scheduled to begin on Monday, January 28, 2002 in Department 14 of the Superior Court in the County of San Mateo.
