Hispanics Drop Ford Credit Bias Suit

August 16, 2002

An Illinois lawsuit alleging that Ford Motor Credit Co. discriminates against Hispanic car buyers has been dismissed, an attorney for the

plaintiffs confirmed Aug. 15, according to the Detroit Free Press.

A group of Hispanic car buyers in Illinois sued Ford's captive credit arm, claiming the company's policies encourage Ford salespeople to increase the interest rates that Hispanic borrowers pay for car loans. Ford denied the allegations.

The case was dropped earlier this month at the

request of the plaintiffs' attorneys after a federal judge in Chicago refused to grant the case class-action status, according to the Free Press.
