Cyrus Mehri has served as co-lead class counsel in some of the largest and most significant race and gender cases in U.S. history: Roberts v. Texaco Inc., ($176 million; S.D.N.Y. 1997); Ingram v. The Coca-Cola Company ($192 million; N.D. Ga. 2001); Robinson v. Ford Motor Company ($10 million and 279 apprentice positions; S.D. Ohio 2005); August-Johnson v. Morgan Stanley ($47 million; D.D.C. 2007); Amachoev v. Smith Barney ($34 million; N.D. Cal. 2008); Norflet v. John Hancock Life Insurance Co. ($24 million; D. Conn. 2009), and Carter v. Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC ($32 million; D.D.C. 2011). The hallmark of these settlements is innovative programmatic relief. In 2002, Mr. Mehri released a seminal report on the National Football League's record on hiring minority coaches, which resulted in the adoption of the "Rooney Rule" and a record number of African American head coaches and front office executives. Eight out of the twelve Super Bowl teams in the last six years have had either a black general manager or black head coach.

He is a founding partner at the DC-based law firm Mehri & Skalet, PLLC. From 1988-89, Mr. Mehri served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable John T. Nixon, United States District Judge for the Middle District of Tennessee.
