Toyota Motor Credit Corporation Buyer Discrimination Settlement Notes

In February 2016, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the Department of Justice resolved an investigation into Toyota Motor Credit Corporation’s alleged practices of buyer racial discrimination. Reportedly, TMCC charged higher interest rates to African-American, Asian, and Pacific Islander borrowers than non-Hispanic white borrowers for auto loans, regardless of their credit worthiness.

“No consumer should be forced to pay more money for a loan because of their race or national origin,” said U.S. Attorney Eileen M. Decker of the Central District of California. “This settlement resolves our claims by providing compensation for affected consumers and seeking to ensure that future loans funded by Toyota reflect equal terms.”

In agreeing to settle the buyer racial discrimination allegations launched by the CFPB and DOJ, Toyota Motor Credit does not admit any fault, but will set up a fund to repay eligible buyers up to $21.9 million. Additionally, Toyota will revise its pricing and compensation system to reduce the dealer’s discretion to mark up interest rates.

Complete details about the investigation and settlement can be found on the Toyota Motor Credit Corporation Buyer Discrimination Settlement website.

DISH Telemarketing Class Action Notes

  • Krakauer v. Dish Network LLC
  • Case No. 1:14-cv-00333
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina

In 2014, lead plaintiff Thomas Krakauer filed the DISH TCPA class action lawsuit, alleging he was repeatedly called by an authorized DISH retailer regarding signing up for DISH services, despite being on the national Do Not Call Registry. Early last year, a jury found that the DISH retailer – Satellite Systems Network – placed over 51,000 illegal telemarketing calls to consumers on the national Do Not Call Registry between May 11, 2010 and August 1, 2011. The jury awarded the class action plaintiffs $400 per call, totaling nearly $20.5 million.

In May, a U.S. District Court judge increased the original jury award to $1,200 per call for a total of $61 million. The judge ruled that Dish was in willful violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) since they failed to monitor SSN’s telemarketing practices.

Dish currently has the right to appeal the verdict.
