Fighting for the Rights of Consumers
Garry A. Bailey et al. v. Haffar & Associates et al.
Case No. : 2010-1-cv-179515
SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA
COUNTY OF SANTA CLARA
If you are a Class Member in the Bailey v. Haffar & Associates class action,
a legal proceeding may affect your rights.
A court authorized this notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
What is this about? In 2013, a Judgment was entered in Santa Clara County Superior Court, in the Bailey v. Haffar & Associates class action. The Judgment ordered Haffar & Associates and others who were involved in selling loan modification services to pay money, which would then be refunded to the people who paid for loan modification services. According to the records from the Bailey v. Haffar & Associates class action, you are one of the people (Class Members) who paid Haffar & Associates for loan modifications. Haffar & Associates and the others who were ordered to pay the money are called the Judgment Debtors.
There is now a proposal before the Court to pay a collections specialist, the Grant Law Firm, to try to collect on the Judgment from the Judgment Debtors. There is no guarantee that the Grant Law Firm will succeed at collecting on the Judgment. Under the proposal, if nothing is collected from the Judgment Debtors, the Grant Law Firm would not receive any payment. If money is collected from the Judgment Debtors, the Grant Law Firm would be paid a percentage of the money collected, as follows:
After paying the Grant Law Firm’s percentage fee, its out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed, and then the rest of the money collected will be applied to pay the Judgment. The Court cannot order the Grant Law Firm to accept a lower payment; the Court can only approve or disapprove this proposal.
What are the Grant Law Firm’s qualifications? You can get a list of the Grant Law Firm’s qualifications here.
If I am in favor of the proposal to employ the collections specialist, what should I do? You do not need to do anything.
If I want to object to the proposal, what should I do? All Class Members will receive a notice via email or postal mail with instructions for objecting. If you are a Class Member and you wish to object, and you have not received this notice by March 31, 2017, contact Class Counsel at 1-831-288-0714 or email@example.com.
