LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) — An Ohio consumer and business are suing Hertz, alleging breach of contract and fraud.
Edward Schwartz, Org Holdings and Org Portfolio Management LLC filed a class action complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated Oct. 17 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against The Hertz Corporation, alleging the defendant charged excess administrative fees to its members.

They are represented by attorneys Mike Arias and Alfredo Torrijos of Arias Sanguinett Stahle & Torrijos LLP in Los Angeles, Jason S. Hartley of Stueve Siegel Hanson LLP in San Diego and by Daniel R.
