AutoNation paperwork class action



As part of its Lawsuit Abuse Victims Project (see Sept. 12) the pro-litigation-reform American Justice Partnership has posted a 90-second video in which Jon Ferrando, general counsel of AutoNation, a large Florida chain of car dealerships, tells of his company's settlement of a class action charging it with omission of some required paperwork at closings. The actual customers, according to Ferrando, were neither injured by the omissions nor desirous of the coupon relief proffered them as part of the settlement; the plaintiff's lawyers, however, got more than $1 million in fees as part of the deal.
