Kakalec & Schlanger, LLP recently filed suit in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York against Lee’s Motors, Inc. and Toyota Motor Credit Corporation on behalf of two individual consumers, a father and son. The suit, brought under the Truth in Lending Act, the New York Motor Vehicle Retail Instalment Sales Act, and New York General Business Law, alleges that the auto dealership incorrectly listed the son as borrower on the father’s loan documentation, failed to provide required loan disclosures, and refused to fix the loan documentation despite repeated requests, causing each of the plaintiff’s real harm.
The suit, Islam, et al. v. Lee’s Motors, Inc., et al., 1:17-cv-03955, is pending in U.S. District Court, E.D.N.Y., and is one of several our firm has or is in the process of filing that relate to the practice of having consumers provide “digital signatures” which are then affixed to documents that are not properly disclosed to the consumer.
