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.
On April 4, 2016, final settlement approval was granted in Irene Corson et al. v. Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. et al., Case Number 2:12-cv-08499, pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The settlement provides relief for more than 800,000 owners of 2009 and 2010 Corollas. The plaintiffs had alleged that the electronic power steering control unit of the vehicles caused the vehicles to drift at higher speeds and possibly lose control. Those class member owners who previously had complained of the off-center feel of the steering will have their electronic control units replaced at no cost. Those class owners who paid out of pocket to replace the electronic control unit, will be reimbursed for their costs, up to $650.00. The remaning members of the class who wish to have their electronic control unit replaced may receive their electronic control unit replaced at a 50% discount.
