Dajia Davenport, the former unpaid intern at Elite Model Management Corp. who has a “passion for fashion” and who filed a $50 million lawsuit against the management company in February alleging that it violated New York State Labor Law and the Fair Labor Standards Act, is still moving forward with her case. This week, Davenport (via her counsel, Steven Wittels of Law Offices of Steven L. Wittels and Richard Roth of the Roth Law Firm) asked a New York federal court Tuesday to approve her proposed class action lawsuit in accordance with the Fair Labor Standards Act on behalf of “unpaid or underpaid” interns, who have worked for Elite beginning in February 2010. Davenport also filed a motion to order Elite (whose roster of models includes Hilary Rhoda, Jamie Bochert, Karen Elson, and Agyness Deyn, among others) to provide her with the contact information for other current and former interns, who may want to join the lawsuit against Elite.

According to Davenport’s LinkedIn profile, she worked as a New Faces Development intern at Elite from July to September 2010, and her duties included: “Assisting Bookers with scouting new talent at open calls; Assisting with product management and development including data entry, scheduling and image maintenance; Providing administrative support for Marketing/Booking/Scouting Departments; Issued follow-up for bookings and referrals, thank you letters, phone calls, and client feedback; Initiated new contacts and cultivated business relationships; Answered phone calls, greeted clients, and scheduled appointments.; Assisted with purchasing of processed client orders; Assisting all Agents and Bookers; and Performing general office duties: processing shipments, ordering promotional product and office supplies.” More to come …

UPDATE: Elite Models paid $450,000 in damages to settle this lawsuit in January 2014.
