Berger Montague served as co-lead counsel and obtained a $22.1 million settlement in this consumer class action lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. concerning lender-placed flood insurance. Led by Shanon J. Carson and Patrick F. Madden of Berger Montague, the plaintiffs alleged that JPMorgan Chase Bank engaged in a scheme to require certain borrowers to (1) purchase lender-placed flood insurance at inflated costs due to the bank’s conduct, and (2) purchase lender-placed flood insurance coverage in excess of the amounts required by their mortgage contract or federal law. The case was litigated in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California and captioned Clements, et al. v. JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., No. 3:12-cv-2179 (N.D. Cal.).
