- Wornicki, et al. v. Brokerpriceopinion.com, et al.
- Case No. 1:13-CV-03258-PAB-KMT
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado
Class members of the BrokerPriceOpinion.com unpaid BPO class action lawsuit challenge that the defense has gone against established agreements for real estate evaluations. Plaintiffs contend that the defendant has unlawfully failed to provide proper payment for the work detailed in the working terms. The class is seeking an injunction to restrain the practices of BrokerPriceOpinion.com and relief for any additional fees that have risen to the legal process.
The defendants in the BrokerPriceOpinion.com class action lawsuit involves the following entities:
- BrokerPriceOpinion.com, Inc.
- Walter Coats
- First Valuation, LLC
- First Valuation Services, LLC
- First Valuation Technology, LLC
- Valutech, Inc.
- Cartel Asset Management, LLC
Defense continues to deny any allegations and all liability, claiming that any award or injunction is inappropriate. It was established through plaintiff discovery that the defendants do not hold proper funding to reimburse amounts owed. Given this state, both sides settled to new terms and conditions to avoid additional litigation.Total settlement funds amount to $1,567,000. Class payment is limited to $1,020,000 of this amount. Additional costs include counsel fees, notice fees, and other administrative costs. Qualifying class members will receive a distribution equal to settlement funds divided by total amount owed by defendants multiplied by the amount owed to the individual.
