Del Amo Motorsports Credit Card Financing Class Action Settlement – California Lawsuit

Consumers who purchased a vehicle from Del Amo Motorsports might be eligible to receive benefits as the result of a recent preliminarily approved class action settlement.

Primary plaintiff Genes P. Ferreras filed the class action lawsuit against Del Amo Motorsports alleging the company offered financing for the purchase of motorcycles via the promotion of branded credit cards. Some of the branded credit card offers occurred at the point of sale. Ferreras asserted in the class action lawsuit that Del Amo Motorsports failed to disclose the details of the motorcycle financing as required by law. The lead plaintiff claims Del Amo Motorsports violated the California Rees-Levering Automobile Sales Finance Act, which prohibits companies from making false and deceptive declarations in regards to credit card repayment terms and the establishment of interest rate policies.

The class action settlement requires Del Amo Motorsports to set up a fund worth $956,420 that distributes to primary plaintiff Ferreras as an incentive award, as well as to eligible class members. Some of the settlement fund takes care of court costs and attorney fees. Del Amo Motorsports continues to deny the class action lawsuit allegations. However, the company decided to settle the case to avoid the high costs associated with a lengthy civil trial.
