ZELDES HAEGGQUIST & ECK NAMED INTERIM CO-LEAD CLASS COUNSEL IN SUIT AGAINST TOLL ROADS OVER CASHLESS TOLLS
Zeldes Haeggquist & Eck has been named interim co-lead class counsel in a class action lawsuit filed against the entities that operate and maintain Orange County’s Toll Roads, the firm announced today.
ZHE will work alongside lawyers from Cuneo Gilbert & LaDuca and the Lindemann Law Firm in representing a class of consumers against the San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor Agency and the Foothill/Eastern Transportation Corridor Agency, among other defendants.
Prior to granting the plaintiffs’ motion for interim co-lead class counsel, the Court considered the work the lawyers have done in identifying and investigating potential claims in the case, their experience in handling class actions, complex litigation, and other claims similar to those asserted in the matter, their knowledge of applicable law, and the resources they will commit to representing the class.
“A thorough review of the attorneys’ and the firms’ prior relevant experience shows the lawyers are amply qualified to litigate this case,” Judge Andrew J. Guilford wrote in an order granting the motion on October 24.
“We are thrilled to join the talented lawyers at Cuneo Gilbert & LaDuca and the Lindemann Law Firm to represent the class of consumers in this important case,” said interim co-lead class counsel Helen Zeldes, a partner at Zeldes Haeggquist & Eck. “For years, The Toll Roads have engaged in blatant violations of drivers’ rights to due process. We look forward to representing the thousands of everyday Californians who have been subject to these illegal fines, and to vindicating their interests in court.”
