$29,069,856 Trial Judgment – Deceptive Homeowner Sales
We represented hundreds of homeowners in Northern California who purchased exterior vinyl siding for their homes as a result of deceptive sales practices. The cost of the siding was misrepresented and high finance charges were added after the sale. The defendant contractor prepared false credit applications to obtain financing that the homeowners could not afford and placed liens on their homes when the homeowners could not pay the high cost of the siding. The contractor committed fraud by providing false warranties, and by installing defective vinyl siding. We undertook extensive investigation and at trial proved that the defendants violated the Unruh Act, the Consumer Legal Remedies Act and the Federal Truth in Lending Act. The homeowners were compensated, and no one lost their home.
