Lawsuit Accuses Geico of Racial Discrimination

A federal lawsuit filed by three former policyholders accuses Geico of discriminating against African-Americans by using education and employment status to set rates. The complaint claims doctors and lawyers "routinely" have lower premiums than blue-collar workers despite having similar driving records. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis and seeks class-action status. Jonathan Stempel, Reuters 04/03/2006 Read Article: Reuters
