Cubler v. Trumark Financial Credit Union
83 A.3d 235 (Pa. Super. Ct. 2013)
Our client sued a credit union over the repossession of his car. The lower state courts were split on whether the consumer had 6 years or only 2 years to file suit. The appellate court agreed with our position that the law allows 6 years. The case was reversed and sent back to the lower court where the credit union agreed to a class-wide settlement providing cash, credit report correction, and the option to get forgiveness of any debt remaining on the auto loan.
