NP filed a national class action on behalf of over 100,000 putative class members against two manufacturers of mobile homes. The nationwide class alleged the manufacturers charged customers for the wheels and axles used to transport purchased mobile homes and, after placing the homes on the customer’s property, removed and retained the wheels and axles. The lawsuit alleged claims of fraud, unjust enrichment, and conversion and sought monetary and injunctive relief.
NP obtained a 100% restitution recovery for the classes valued at approximately $100 million, as well as injunctive relief in the form of a court order requiring the defendants to cease their offending conduct. Each settlement received final approval.
The class was represented by NP partner Michael Angelovich and associate Chad Ihrig.
