Consumers Legal Remedies Act Violations

California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act (“CLRA”) is a powerful and useful consumer protection statute that is used to fight consumer fraud.  The CLRA contains broad provisions intended to outlaw unethical business practices, such as making false advertisements to consumers, and makes it economical for consumers to pursue their legal claims for violations of the Act. The CLRA outlaws a multitude of misrepresentations, and forces companies that violate the CLRA to pay all of the attorney’s fees and costs of consumers in enforcing their legal rights.  The CLRA identifies more than 20 different kinds of illegal acts, including: selling something as new that is actually used and reconditioned; misrepresenting the origin of a good or service as being the product of another; misrepresenting the quality of a good; making false statements or promises about what a product is made of or will do; and making false, derogatory or confusing statements about a competitor’s business or product. Glancy Prongay & Murray’s consumer protection lawyers have extensive experience successfully litigating CLRA claims.

Court Recognition

“And without question, the Court is of the opinion that the value of benefit that’s been conferred to the class is extremely sizable and that this Court is certainly aware that the skill and efficiency of plaintiff’s counsel is what attributed to this settlement, and they are learned securities counsel. The Court is mindful of that, and as a result they were able to sort of weed their way through the complex issues in this case, and also to bring this about — bring about a settlement rather in short order as these matters go. So the Court certainly attributes that to counsel’s skill and efficiency, as well as the ability to work with the adversaries in this matter.”

–Hon. Susan D. Wigention, U.S. District Judge, District of New Jersey

“Class Counsel has conducted the litigation and achieved the Settlement in good faith and with skill, perseverance and diligent advocacy”

— Hon. Donovan W. Frank, U.S. District Judge, District of Minnesota

“The court finds that the Settlement Fund… created by Class Counsel is an exceptional result… The settlement is significantly above the average securities class action settlement when measured as a percentage of losses recovered… The court finds that Class Counsel, particularly Co-Lead Counsel, exerted tremendous effort on behalf of the class in the prosecution of this action… The Court finds that Class Counsel skillfully prosecuted this action, particularly given that this case was unusually complex relative to most securities fraud class actions. ”

–Hon. Dickran M. Tevrizian (Ret.), U.S. District Court Judge, Central District of California
