Lawsuit

Bank of America Sign and Logo in Front of Branch

Financial institutions may telephone consumers to try to collect debts. What they may not do is call consumers’ cell phones using automatic dialing systems, unless they obtain prior express written consent. So says the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The complaint for this class action claims that Bank of America Corporation did indeed use automatic dialing systems to contact consumer cell phones, even after a consumer’s lawyer told it to stop.

This class action is another alleging the misclassification of employees as exempt from overtime pay combined with allegedly excessive expectations of quotas to be met during working hours. The complaint alleges that JPMorgan Chase Bank, NA violates the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Set of Gotham Steel Pots and Pans

This class action is about non-stick pans and other cookware. The complaint alleges that food sticks to the cookware made by E. Mishan and Sons, Inc. that the company describes as “nonstick.”

Hard Disk Drive Suspension Assembly in Position Over Hard Disk

Hard disk drive (HDD) suspension assemblies are components of hard disk assemblies.

Home Depot Store Exterior

Illinois has a fairly simple Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), considering the risks involved in collecting and storing biometrics. Even so, the complaint for this class action alleges that the Home Depot, Inc. did not follow the requirements of BIPA in collecting and storing biometric information—no, not the information of its employees but of its customers. 

Man with Tools Carrying Ladder

It’s the same old telemarketing complaint, with a company with a different business structure. The complaint for this class action alleges that Porch.com, Inc., German Roofing, LLC, and others violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by placing telemarketing calls to consumer cell phones without getting the consumers’ prior express written consent.

Carton of Tillamook Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream

Tillamook County Creamery Association makes ice cream in approximately fifty-one flavors. The complaint for this class action alleges that many of these products involve ice cream that is said to be vanilla flavor but is not, at least not according to labeling requirements. 

Cockpit of Boeing 737

The horror of the Boeing 727 Max crashes are usually considered from the point of view of the dead passengers. This class action is brought on behalf of the pilots who had to fly them, day after day, and who are suffering loss of livelihood now that they are grounded. The complaint alleges that the Boeing Company engaged in a coverup and brings suit on behalf of “Pilot J” and roughly twenty other pilots who flew the plane for international “Airline J.”

Robot on Telephone

Companies are still trying consumers’ patience with unwanted telemarketing, including telemarketing that is illegal under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

The complaint alleges that the company has been sending these texts to the plaintiff “over the past several years…”

Judge's Gavel Resting on Stand

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was designed to prevent abuse or unfair practices when third-party debt collectors try to collect consumer debts. The complaint for this class action alleges that Phoenix Financial Services, LLC violated the FDCPA in its various attempts to collect a medical debt from the plaintiff in this case.
