Consumer Class Action Certified

Edward H. Maginnis and Karl S. Gwaltney had a consumer class action case certified on November 12, 2020 after nearly three years of litigation.

Forsyth Superior Court Judge Eric C. Morgan signed the approval order this week. The consumer class action complaint, filed in 2018, alleged that Defendants Arcan Capital LLC charged unlawful eviction fees.

Arcan Captial charged their tenants approximately $191 in fees when filing their eviction. Our firm alleged their actions were in violation of North Carolina’s landlord/tenant statutes. As part of the final settlement, Arcan Capital will pay class members $500-more than double the amount they paid.

In cases such as these, class members may opt out or object to the settlement. However, not a single tenant exercised this right.

Our attorneys are extremely pleased with the result of this class action. North Carolina has a variety of beneficial consumer protection laws that our attorneys can use to obtain compensation for a company’s illegal conduct. If you have any questions about our firm’s representation of consumers in North Carolina, please do not hesitate to contact us.
