General Consumer Protection Class Actions

Woodrow & Peluso attorneys have additionally successfully prosecuted and resolved countless class action suits against other companies for a range of consumer protection issues. For example, Woodrow & Peluso filed the first class action in the Country to challenge the marijuana industry’s use of certain allegedly dangerous fungicides and pesticides and were the first lawyers to bring class actions (against the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club and Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, LLC) seeking to enforce the Colorado Consumer Protection Act,

  • _§ 6-1- 718 _et seq_.
which prohibits owners of entertainment venues from imposing restrictions on the resale of tickets.

The firm has also brought and litigated class actions against hospitals for their use of “chargemaster” billing rates. This includes attaining adversarial class certification in the case of:

  • _Joseph v. North Broward Hospital District_, Case No. 15-013213
 Case No. 15-013213 (04) (17th Circuit Court, Florida).
