Building off of the work of BayLegal’s senior consumer protection attorney Juliana Fredman, LCCR-SF and Keker, Van Nest & Peters LLP obtained a class preliminary injunction against Bad Boy Bail Bonds to prevent it from collecting bail bond premium payments. The injunction provides relief to Californians who cosigned bail bonds only to find out that they were signing on to long-term debt, even after their loved ones showed up for court or were incarcerated. This case follows a Bus. & Prof. Code Section 17200 individual action that BayLegal and LCCR-SF filed in state court in which Juliana successfully argued that state cosigner notice laws applied to bail bond contracts. This separate class action by LCCR-SF and Keker, Van Nest & Peters LLP followed. The class preliminary injunction impacts approximately 18,000 Californians and $34.5 million in bail bond premium debt.
