CONSUMER PROTECTION CLASS ACTIONS

THE CINCINNATI INSURANCE COMPANY

Wolterman Law Office filed a lawsuit on May 1, 2020 against The Cincinnati Insurance Company for their refusal to pay claims for businesses that have been forced to shut down due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Filed on behalf of iconic restaurant Primavista as plaintiff, the class action complaint alleges that thousands of businesses that have been wrongfully denied coverage by their insurance company for losses related to the coronavirus pandemic. Primavista's owners Joan and Frank Lenkerd filed the complaint after they, like many other businesses, were forced to shut down completely in mid-March after Governor Mike DeWine ordered business closures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Ohio and Nationwide Consumer Class Actions for Individuals and Small Businesses

Individuals and small businesses are often powerless against large companies and governments. In other cases, the individual or small business just doesn't have the time to hold the large corporation accountable. All too often these large companies take advantage of this discrepancy, putting profit and bureaucracy over human values (and the law). Class actions level the playing field by bringing individuals and small businesses together. By using the power of collective action consumer protection class actions can achieve just compensation and spur positive change.

False or misleading advertising, phony disclosures, undisclosed fees, unconscionable pricing, and charging for services never provided are some of the many unfair and deceptive practices used to cheat consumers and small businesses.

Wolterman Metzger has investigated and handled consumer protection class action lawsuits related to the failure of banks to release individual and small business mortgages, insurance companies unlawfully charging premiums and fees, insurance companies falling to timely pay claims and death benefits, and publicly traded real estate companies charging unlawful fees to small business tenants.

We welcome the opportunity to talk to consumers and small businesses about the unfair and deceptive practices of corporations. We advise consumers and businesses whether and how to pursue legal action to obtain just compensation and halt deceptive practices. Wolterman Metzger's combination of legal acumen, courage, creativity and pragmatism help us protect our client's interests and win complex consumer protection lawsuits against corporations who have defrauded consumers.

The Huntington National Bank

Wolterman Law Office filed an Ohio class action lawsuit against The Huntington National Bank for failing to timely file mortgage satisfactions in violation of Ohio Revised Code Section 5301.36. Filed on behalf of James T. Hoffman as plaintiff, the class action complaint alleges that Huntington failed to file a mortgage satisfaction within 90 days after the mortgage was satisfied, either by pay-off, refinance or sale. The plaintiff filed the complaint on behalf of himself and all other Ohio mortgagors for whom Huntington failed to timely file mortgage satisfactions. Under Ohio law, the failure of a lender to file the mortgage release within 90 days of the mortgage being satisfied results in statutory damages to the borrower ranging from $250 to $5000.
