Cases & Investigations
Berger Montague filed a claim on behalf of Minnesota residents who have taken out a loan arranged by MoneyMutual, LLC. Plaintiffs alleged that MoneyMutual, PartnerWeekly, LLC, and Selling Source, LLC arranged illegal, high-interest online loans from unlicensed lenders for thousands of Minnesotans.
Berger Montague was one of three firms to represent the State of Connecticut in a separate action in state court against the tobacco companies. The case was litigated separate from the coordinated nationwide actions. Although eventually Connecticut joined the national settlement, its counsel’s contributions were recognized by being awarded the fifth largest award among the states from the fifty states’ Strategic Contribution Fund.
Berger Montague was Co-Lead Counsel for the Class in this consolidated action. The case involved a service outage affecting the T-Mobile Sidekick mobile telephone device. The case was settled by agreement of the parties with court approval in 2011.
In 2007, Berger Montague filed a class action suit on behalf of all consumers in the U.S. whose personal and financial data were stolen by computer hackers from TJX Companies, Inc. (“TJX”). Berger Montague was one of three Co-Lead Counsel appointed by the Court.
In 1997, Berger Montague filed a class action complaint that was different from the complaints filed by any other of the filing law firms in the New Jersey State Court “Fen Phen” class action. The class sought in the firm’s complaint was ultimately certified.
