Quat Law Offices has filed two lawsuits challenging fees charged to and collected from consumers when a cars is seized pursuant to a court execution. In both cases, consumers were charged $600 as a "seizure fee." Plaintiffs claim that not only is the fee grossly excessive, well above that permitted by Massachusetts law, but further that such a fee cannot be passed on to the consumer absent a court order. Defendants in one case are the Worcester law firm of Melia & Osol and constables Constance Sorenson and Gerald Connors. Defendants in the second case are the Worcester County Sheriff's Office, Forsyth Law Offices, and Attorney Carl Brugnoli.
