California Law Firm Sues U-Haul Over Unfair Price Fixing Efforts With Competitors.

Monday, May 14th, 2012

The law firm of Kronenberger Rosenfeld, LLP filed a class action lawsuit against U-Haul International, Inc. on May 11, 2012. The case is entitled, Mary Bottorff v. Americo and U-Haul International, Inc., District Court for the Eastern District of California, Case No. 2:12-at-00701. This new class action lawsuit is filed in the wake of an FTC action filed against U-Haul, entitled, In the Matter of U-Haul Int’l Inc. and AMERCO, FTC File No. 081-0157.

The California class action complaint alleges that U-Haul’s unlawful efforts to collude substantially increased the price of one-way truck rentals nationwide, including in the State of California, thus causing damages to California plaintiff Mary Borttorff and the members of the class, in violation of California law.

The class action lawsuit defines the “Class” as, “all persons who purchased one-way truck rentals from Defendants for transportation to, from or within the State of California between September 2006 and September 2008.

The firm is still actively investigating U-Haul in other states and encourages victims of U-Haul’s unfair pricing policies to contact the firm at its website.

U-Haul customers who have seethed over botched reservations were vindicated last year when a California judge ruled that the company had engaged in “unlawful and fraudulent business practices.”
