HGSK Secures Consumer Protection Law Decision

Posted By Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C.

In Grimes v. Enterprise Leasing Company, Jim Haggerty of HGSK represented the plaintiff in a consumer protection law claim against Enterprise Leasing. In that case, Christina Grimes had leased a car for the weekend from Enterprise Leasing. The total costs associated with the weekend lease was less than $80.00. When she returned the car to Enterprise Leasing, Christina Grimes was told that she was now responsible for a scratch on the roof of the car and would be assessed in excess of $800.00 in expenses for repair costs, administrative fees, diminishment of value and loss of use of the damaged vehicle. She opposed these claims.

HGSK represented Christina Grimes against Enterprise Leasing before the Superior and Supreme Courts. As a result of her opposition to the claims, Enterprise Leasing agreed to withdraw the claims for damages. While the Supreme Court did not allow Christina Grimes to pursue her consumer protection law claim since she had sustained no "ascertainable loss" (since Enterprise had withdrawn its unconscionable claims) Christina Grimes nonetheless was not assessed damages for the alleged scratch. HGSK undertook the representation of Christina Grimes in its commitment to represent individuals in connection with outrageous actions by insurance companies and self-insured entities throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
