Rodriguez v. Fulton Bank
Berks CCP 2015
This class action suit was against a regional lender for improper repossession practices. The bank's efforts to have our client's case sent to forced arbitration was denied. That decision was affirmed by the Superior Court. 108 A.3d 100 (Pa Superior Ct 2014) and the Supreme Court refused to accept a further appeal by the bank. 112 A.3d 654 (Pa. 2015) The matter was then resolved on a class-wide basis for hundreds of consumers, where each received a substantial check, had any deficiency balance wiped out if they wished, and had the negative entry removed from their credit report.
