We may be social distancing, but we can still deliver the latest class action news right to your inbox. This time, we have a wide array of new investigations – from excessive notary fees to Zumper background checks – where attorneys are trying to level the playing field for consumers who may have been taken advantage of. Plus, you can now file claims for the highly anticipated Chipotle “non-GMO” settlement. Stay safe out there and read on for the latest.
By now, we should all know that putting a car in drive means you’ll go forward and putting it in reverse means you’ll go backward. These are the fundamentals of driving, but attorneys are now investigating whether 2019 Audi Q7, Q8, A7 and A8 vehicles are rolling forward when put in reverse. The attorneys are trying to find out how widespread the issue is and whether a class action can be filed to help drivers recover what they spent on repairs. A successful case could also force the automaker to recall the vehicles or offer a fix. If you had issues with your Audi rolling away or rolling forward when you put the car in reverse, share your story with us.
States have specific limits on how much can be charged for notary fees, so you may want to check whether you were overcharged. For example, in California, it’s illegal to charge more than $15 for notary services, while Vermont allows for notary fees of no more than $0.50. Attorneys are looking into whether certain companies are charging too much for their services and may be able to file lawsuits against those breaking the law. A successful case could help people get back some of their money and ensure notary fees are kept below the legal maximum. If you believe you paid more than you should have when having a mortgage, power of attorney, rental agreement or other document notarized, we have you covered.

This settlement puts to rest claims that the home stadium for the San Francisco 49ers failed to meet ADA accessibility standards. Those with mobility disabilities who were denied equal access between April 1, 2015 and March 9, 2020 may be covered.
It’s incredibly frustrating to have to take responsibility for something you didn’t do – especially when your living situation is on the line. So, if you found that you had an inaccurate background check furnished by Zumper, attorneys working with ClassAction.org want to hear from you. They’re investigating whether Zumper is taking the appropriate measures to ensure rental applicants’ background check reports are both accurate and up to date. Some common issues individuals hoping to secure an apartment may run into include that the report contains old or expunged charges or information for someone else entirely – neither of which should be included. If your background check from Zumper contained inaccurate information, you can find out more here.
You may have heard about the scrutiny Chipotle was under for advertising that its food contained no GMOs, and the lawsuit that resulted. Well, Chipotle recently agreed to settle the false advertising allegations and customers of the chain can now start filing their claims. If you bought food or a beverage from Chipotle that contained meat or dairy between April 27, 2015 and June 30, 2016, you may be eligible for anywhere between $2 and $30. You don’t need to have saved your receipts to be able to take part, but you may be able to claim more if you have them on hand. You only have until the end of May to file a claim, so here’s everything you need to know and what you need to do to get your money.
