Lawsuit

A Gold's Gym in Issaquah, Washington

One has to wonder what the success rate is for illegal telemarketing ads, since companies continue to send them. The complaint for this class action alleges that Fitness Northwest, Inc. violates the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by sending consumers text messages advertising its Gold’s Gyms.

TriGreen Equipment Retail Location

Identity theft becomes more of a problem every day, and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) seeks to protect consumers by limiting the amount of information that can be printed on a store’s point-of-service receipt. The complaint for this class action alleges that TriGreen Equipment, LLC has violated FACTA by printing credit and debit card expiration dates on customer receipts.

This class action is another case where a company has classified a worker as an independent contractor rather than an employee. However, in this case plaintiffs Jason Sheldon and Steven Hunsberger had to invest a significant amount of money. The plaintiffs were led to believe that they were starting their own businesses, but the complaint alleges that State Farm controlled nearly everything and provided a great deal of misinformation.

New York Life Logo

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.

Figure Carrying Letters D-E-B-T on Its Back

Debt collectors are not permitted to use any means they choose to hound a consumer debtor into paying. While the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act lays down some ground rules, state laws may be even stricter. The complaint for this class action alleges that Select Portfolio Servicing, Inc. (SPS) violated the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act (MCPA) and the Massachusetts Debt Collection Regulations (MDCR) by calling consumers as many as eight times in a week. 

Can of Behr Marquee

Behr Process Corporation sells products it claims are “Paint & Primer in One,” but the complaint for this class action alleges that the products do not act as a primer, wasting the buyer’s time and effort or costing the buyer even more. The complaint claims violations of state laws on things like false advertising and breaches of warranties.

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.

Regional Acceptance Corporation Logo

Calls from companies with whom you don’t care to do business can be annoying. They are even more so if the messages they carry are for someone else entirely. The complaint for this class action claims that Regional Acceptance Corporation (RAC) placed unwanted calls to the cell phone of William Christopher Collins, in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).​

Target Mascot Dog with Bullseye on Face

The complaint for this class action alleges that Target Corporation did not follow all labor law requirements with hourly employees in its California locations. Interestingly, the violation of one California law sometimes leads to an ability to make a claim under a second law. 

Avalon Health Care Logo

The complaint for this class action comes packed with allegations against three companies, Avalon Health Care Inc., Berryman Health, Inc., and Avalon Health Care Management of California, LLC. It first makes claims under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and state laws about the companies’ practices of obtaining background reports for job applicants. Then it goes on to a number of labor law violations
