NEWARK, New Jersey (Legal Newsline) - A Bergen County man is suing Hertz, alleging its terms and conditions are unspecific.
David Hecht, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit March 16 in U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against The Hertz Corporation, alleging violations of the New Jersey Truth-in-Consumer Contract, Warranty and Notice Act (TCCWNA).
The suit alleges the terms and conditions on Hertz's website violate the TCCWNA by stating that certain provisions are or may be void, unenforceable, or inapplicable in some jurisdictions, without specifying which provisions are or are not void, unenforceable or inapplicable within New Jersey.
Hecht and others in the class seek statutory civil penalties, attorney fees and other costs of the suit, plus a jury trial. They are represented by attorneys Jeffrey W. Herrmann of Cohn Lifland Pearlman Herrmann & Knopf in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, Richard S. Cornfeld of the Law Office of Richard S. Cornfeld in St. Louis, and Anthony S. Bruning, Anthony S. Bruning Jr. and Ryan L. Bruning of The Bruning Law Firm in St. Louis.
