Paul, Weiss Recognized by The American Lawyer for Win in RICO Consumer Class Action
- August 5, 2022
Litigation partners Randy Luskey and Melinda Haag were recognized in The American Lawyer’s “Litigation Daily” column on August 5, alongside co-counsel from Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, for their win in a significant RICO consumer class action in the Eastern District of California.
Representing leading mortgage servicer Ocwen Financial Corporation, the team won decertification of a nationwide class of mortgage borrowers that alleged that Ocwen improperly assessed default-related service fees that contained undisclosed mark-ups. They convinced the judge that, under the Supreme Court’s recent decision in TransUnion LLC v. Ramirez, the plaintiffs would need to establish that each individual borrower in the class paid the fee in question and suffered concrete harm, and would therefore fail the predominance requirement for class actions.
