Sutherland wins summary judgment in “Dental Fee Plan” disclosure case.

Description
Sutherland represented a bank in a putative nationwide class action brought by a consumer challenging the disclosures provided in connection with a loan under a “Dental Fee Plan” promoted by a co-defendant. The court granted our client's motion for summary judgment on the plaintiff's Truth in Lending Act (TILA) claim, finding that the fee was not a “finance charge” under TILA because no amount was added to the price paid by the plaintiff for dental work as a result of the dentist’s payment of the fee. The court also found that the disclosure that $5,000 had been paid to the dentist on the plaintiff's behalf was accurate.
