This is a class action filed by our firm in Florida to recover amounts our client claimed were wrongfully withheld from class members in consumer contracts. The trial court held that our client failed to establish the important aspect of a class action that common issues predominated over individual issues. Our appeal of this decision resulted in a reversal of the trial court’s predominance ruling.Brodeur v Peterson Vacations.
Often to succeed in a class action you must carefully determine if there are so many individual issues for trial that a class is not appropriate. We carefully weigh these decisions to be sure that our clients and prospective class action law suit members get the results that they deserve.
In this case, our client claimed that a title company improperly charged fees to him and numerous other class members at real estate closings. The trial court denied our motion for certification of the plaintiff class. In this appeal, we obtained a reversal of the trial court’s order resulting in certification of the class and an eventual recovery for the class members. We fight hard for our class action plaintiffs to be sure they are treated fairly and their class is certified.
