The complaint for this class action alleges that New York Life Insurance and Annuity Corporation hiked the premium on its universal life policies by an excessive rate. It did this, the complaint says, using an illegal policy form to support its moves, and forced many people to allow their policies to lapse, leaving them with nothing for all the years they’d paid in.

Building for Ohio National

When a person or firm is laid off, what happens to any unpaid commissions they might have earned? The complaint for this class action says that Ohio National Life Insurance and related companies simply stopped paying the insurance commissions to securities representatives when it terminated its selling agreements with their companies. The complaint calls this breach of contract and unjust enrichment.

When tenants are late with the rent, are landlords allowed to charge them eviction fees when no eviction proceedings have ever taken place?

This class action is a complicated one, involving income streams arranged for consumers by an insurance company and used to fund life insurance policies. Minnesota Life Insurance Company should have known that the plan was flawed from the beginning, the complaint claims, and should never have recommended it to their customers.

Facebook, Inc.’s difficulties with fake accounts have been in the news because of their political influence. But this complaint takes up the problems fake accounts cause Facebook advertisers.

Q Club Condominium and Hotel in Fort Lauderdale

Q Club Hotel, LLC is part hotel and part residential condominium. That is, the owners of its 333 condos can rent out their units to hotel guests. The residents and hotel guests thus share some of the facilities (such as the front desk, elevators, and pool) and residents must pay a portion of certain Shared Costs of the hotel and condominium expenses. But the complaint for this class action claims that Q Club is now charging an additional fee for housekeeping services that were before included in the Shared Costs, breaching the condominium’s contracts.
