On September 6, 2017, a class action settlement with State Road Auto Sales, Inc., received final approval from the Suffolk Superior Court. The lawsuit alleged that State Road's standard auto lease violated the Consumer Leasing Act in multiple respects, and that it also contained several anti-consumer provisions that violated Massachusetts law. The settlement provided for cash payments to class members and for State Road to remedy the alleged violations in its lease form. The payments have been made and the case has terminated. Attorney Kenneth D,. Quat served as class counsel along with Attorney Deborah Roher.
State Road is currently being sued by the Massachusetts Division of Banks. This case alleges that some of its consumer contracts are not true leases but rather are disguised sales that violate certain consumer protection regulations.
