They were already being paid for practices when Erica was there. Appearances are a flat fee based on tenure and I highly doubt they would get compensated for travel time unless it was a special case -- it's not the norm for anyone to be compensated for travel time. Why would they do it for cheerleaders, especially part-time cheerleaders? Travel expenses, yes; travel time, not so much. Heck, as an hourly employee, my travel expenses were paid, but not my travel time or even my time at the conferences (even though I was technically working & had to be there). Geez, maybe I missed out & needed my own lawsuit. 😆
The only thing that might have come out of Erica's lawsuit is (slightly) higher pay. I think Erica's lawsuit is viewed as having a lot more power than it did.
