FasTrak mix-up results in class action lawsuit

By Carrie Bradon | May 13, 2019

SANTA ANA, Calif. (Legal Newsline) — A man is filing a class action lawsuit against numerous transportation authorities, alleging that he and other drivers were mailed a letter that advertised toll services.

Harvey Thompson III, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on April 26 in the United States District Court for the Central District of California against Cofiroute USA LLC, Orange County Transportation Authority, Riverside County Transportation Commission.

The plaintiff alleges that the defendants are transportation agencies that operate as electronic toll collection systems on toll highways. The plaintiff and proposed class members were allegedly accused by the defendant of using the Express Lanes without a FasTrak account. 

The defendants later retracted their claims, admitting that they were wrong with their allegations, the suit says. In the letters of retraction, Thompson says the defendants advertised toll-related services.

Thompson alleges those letters violated the Streets & Highways Code.

The plaintiff is seeking trial by jury, penal fines of more than $5 million, attorneys' fees, court costs and other relief deemed fit. The plaintiff is represented by William McGrane of The Walsh Firm P.C.
