On December 2, 2019, plaintiffs Jay Sherrard and Dolly West (“Plaintiffs") filed an action against American Credit Acceptance, LLC (“ACA”) in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles entitled, Jay Sherrard, et al. v. American Credit Acceptance, LLC, Case No. 19STCV43101 (“Action”). Plaintiffs allege in the Action that ACA violated the Rees-Levering Automobile Sales Finance Act, Cal. Civ. Code §§ 2981, et seq. (“Rees-Levering Act”), and other laws, by issuing written notices to consumers after repossession or voluntary surrender of their motor vehicles (“NOIs”) that did not comply with the Rees-Levering Act. ACA denies the allegations made in the Action, and it denies any and all liability with respect to any claims alleged in the Action.

The court in charge of the Action is the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles (“Court”). The Court has not decided who is right or wrong in the Action. Although no determination has been made as to the merits of the Action, ACA is willing to enter into this settlement to end further litigation. The settlement is a compromise and should not be construed as an admission by ACA of any fault, wrongdoing or liability whatsoever.

This action is called a “class action” because Plaintiffs are class representatives suing on behalf of other people with similar claims, called the “Settlement Class.” The parties have agreed to treat the Action as a class action for settlement purposes only.
