In October 2001, Crane's former company, Eagle Global Logistics, agreed to a $9 million settlement of a lawsuit by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which alleged race, sex and age discrimination against employees and job applicants. It included $8.5 million in back pay and damages and a $500,000 fund to train women and minorities for leadership jobs at the company.
"The EEOC issue, I think that's all been investigated, talked about," McLane said. "That was 11 years ago, and a fair settlement with the Department of Justice was reached. They moved on on that issue. I think that's not an issue that's involved at all."
With the postponement of the vote, no major actions are expected at the owners' meeting.
