Edgar Law Firm recently gained class certification in Johnson v. Safe Auto Insurance Company, Case No. 1316-CV31993, pending in the Circuit Court of Jackson County, Missouri. The plaintiff class claims that Safe Auto was unfairly enriched by wrongfully assessing fees to Missouri customers for an "accidental death benefit" product. The court granted class certification on August 19, 2016. If Safe Auto is found liable, Missouri consumers who were assessed fees for the "accidental death benefit" product, and those who did not make a claim on the product, may be entitled to compensation.
Edgar Law Firm and its co-counsel were recently successful in gaining class certification for a group of injured consumers in Marentes v. Impac Mortgage Holdings, Inc., No. 30-2012-00565615-CU-BT-CXC, pending in the Superior Court of Orange County, California. The plaintiff class claims that Impac, a mortgage loan servicing company, committed an unfair business practice by collecting an up-front fee for mortgage modifications in violation of California law. The court's ruling in favor of certification means that class members who paid the up-front fees may receive restitution if Impac is found liable for the assumed violations.
