On October 6, 2016 the Court held a Fairness Hearing to determine: (1) whether the Court should approve the proposed Settlement; (2) whether the Court should enter the Final Order Approving Settlement; and (3) whether the Court should approve the Distribution Plan. After considering all of the evidence, the Court ruled in favor of the military service members and their dependents and issued their Final Order Approving Settlement.

 

Settlement checks were issued to class members on January 6, 2017 and must be cashed prior to February 28, 2017.

 

After nearly 6 years of litigation, Barnes Law Group is proud to help Make It Right for these service members and their families.

Military servicemembers won a huge victory last week when a three judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeal upheld the trial court’s decision to certify a nationwide class action lawsuit against Atlanta-based vehicle title lender, Community Loans of America for violations of the Military Lending Act, which caps permissible interest rates at 36%.  BLG attorneys Roy Barnes, John Bevis and Cam Tribble represent servicemembers and their dependents in 18 states. 

The case is pending in the Columbus Division of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia 4:11-cv-00177-CDL, located just outside the gates to the Ft. Benning army base.  SSG Jason Cox, MSGT Estephan Castillo (Retired), Marine SGT Leo Tookes and US Army Dependent Alecia Lewis-Vinson have been approved by the Court to represent the interests of all servicemembers and dependents who obtained loans during the relevant time period. 

If you are an active duty servicemember or dependent in any branch of the US armed forces and obtained a vehicle title loan from Community Loans of America and its affiliates in any of the states and US territories listed below click here to join this class action and receive updates.

When the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Services are protecting our country, they should not have to worry about financial frauds and schemes at home. To alleviate some of this burden, Congress passed the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA), which grants certain legal protections to members of the military. Unfortunately, corporations including USAA and JPMorgan Chase have found a way to violate the SCRA law without being held accountable -- forced arbitration.

The New York Times exposed this abusive practice in a front page story that you can read below.   As you will see, this is not limited to servicemembers' rights. This could - and likely does - apply to you because forced arbitration is found in everything from cell phone contracts, to bank terms of service, to even nursing home admission forms.  Failed by Law and Courts, Troops Come Home to Repossessions,...
