Sobel et al. v. The Hertz Corp.
This lawsuit is about a line item on Hertz Corp. price quotes and contracts called an “airport concession recovery fee.” These fees typically represented 10% to 11.5% of the total cost to rent a car from Hertz. The Court has ruled that Hertz violated Nevada law by adding this fee to the base rate that in charged from October 13, 2003 through September 30, 2009 at its locations at the Las Vegas and Reno airports. Accordingly, the Court found that class members are entitled to a refund (with interest) of the amount of this fee. Hertz has appealed this ruling, and the appeal is now pending.
