UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT APPROVES SETTLEMENT OF IDENTITY THEFT CLASS ACTION FILED BY Elliott Greenleaf
The United States District Court approved a multi-million dollar settlement of a certified class action seeking damages for credit harm, and restoration of credit histories brought by Elliott Greenleaf as co-lead counsel for the class of over 3000 persons.
In approving the negotiated settlement reached on the eve of trial, Senior Judge Norma Shapiro found that Elliott Greenleaf had "substantial experience in prosecuting and managing class actions. They are competent, well-qualified, and conducted the litigation with forthrightness and vigor."
Further, the Court noted that Elliott Greenleaf "is a 'full service' law firm with more than forty attorneys and several offices in Pennsylvania . Their practice includes federal and state trial and appellate litigation concerning health care, constitutional issues affecting business and government, contracts, environmental, insurance, civil rights litigation, employment and disability law, banking, financial services, antitrust, class actions, mass torts, corporate and securities law, construction, products liability, tax, bankruptcy, franchise, trademark and trade secrets, corporate control, white collar criminal defense, qui tam, RICO law and grand juries."
The Court also found that "Elliott Greenleaf attorneys have recently won numerous multi-million dollar judgments and settlements."
Elliott Greenleaf, along with co-counsel, created a recovery which paid thousands of dollars for each individual credit harm caused by the bogus loan scheme and failure to pay of liens on trade in vehicles. In addition, the settlement will satisfy multiple liens on trade in vehicles, allowing title to those vehicles to be transferred to the proper owner of the trade in vehicle.
Elliott Greenleaf shareholders Timothy T. Myers and Mark A. Kearney, along with associates Roger J. Harrington and Todd N. Barnes, obtained this recovery for the Class, along with co-counsel Cary L. Flitter, Esq of Lundy Flitter Beldecos & Berger.
