Select Cases

Squitieri & Fearon, LLP represents plaintiffs and large groups or classes of individuals who have suffered losses as a result of the misdeeds of corporations or other individuals. Below is a sample of some of the notable cases that Squitieri & Fearon, LLP is prosecuting.

Charles Schwab Corp 401(k) Plan Fees Investigation:

Squitieri & Fearon, LLP is currently investigating claims on behalf of participants in the Charles Schwab Retirement Savings and Investment Plan who invested in Schwab-related funds. Those Schwab funds charged fees and expenses that often were excessive and directly benefitted Schwab and the other fiduciaries of the Plan. Often the Schwab-related investments performed much worse than cheaper, alternative investments. The Schwab-related funds were more expensive than comparable funds and often performed worse than the comparable funds, meaning that participants in the Schwab 401(k) plan were paying higher fees for lower performance. Over time, these higher fees significantly decreased the retirement assets available to the participants in the Schwab 401k plan. As a result, participants in the 401k plan who invested in the Schwab funds lost millions of dollars in retirement assets that instead went directly to Schwab and some of the Schwab-related entities.

Some of the funds with these higher fees included:

the Schwab Managed Retirement Trust Funds

the Schwab S&P 500 index Fund

the Schwab Stable Value Fund

the Schwab Value Advantage fund

the Schwab Self-Directed Brokerage System.

Conseco/Wilco Life Insurance Company increasing cost-of-insurance rates on life insurance policies:

Squitieri & Fearon, LLP is investigating possible claims for a class action against Conseco/Wilco Life Insurance Company for increasing its cost-of-insurance in March 2016.  Conseco/Wilco notified policyholders that it would increase the costs associated with certain Universal Life policies. In a letter to policyholders, Conseco/Wilco represented that Conseco/Wilco is “increasing the cost of insurance rates because the Company now expects higher rates and numbers of insured deaths than we had anticipated for policies such as yours.  We have been experiencing higher claims costs for these policies and expect this trend to continue in the future.”

Costco Square Trade Protection Plan Class Action:

Costco Square Trade Protection Plan Class Action

Squitieri & Fearon, LLP is investigating claims that Costco sells its Square Trade Protection Plan to customers who buy televisions, tablets, cameras, computers and major appliances even though the warranties from the Protection Plan expire before some of the manufacturers’ warranties. The allegation is that Costco is selling worthless Protection Plans without telling its members. Costco sells the Protection Plans without providing the actual terms and conditions to the customers until after the customer completes the purchase. Costco’s members cannot determine the limitations of the coverage prior to paying for it. Squitieri & Fearon, LLP is already representing Costco customers in a pending class action.

If you or someone you know purchased a Square Trade Protection Plan through Costco, you may be eligible to participate in the class action.  Please contact Lee Squitieri by e-mail at lee@sfclasslaw.com or by phone at (212) 421-6492.  You can also complete the following form, and someone from the firm will contact you

EpiPen Investigation:

EpiPen Investigation

Squitieri & Fearon, LLP is pursuing a class action lawsuit against Mylan Specialty L.P. (“Mylan”) on behalf of consumers who were victimized by Mylan aggressively increasing the price of EpiPen auto-injectors since 2007.

The lawsuit alleges that Mylan required consumers to purchase the EpiPen in pairs or two-packs and raised the retail price from $57 in 2007 to more than $600 today, even though pharmaceutical industry sources estimate each EpiPen can be produced for between $8 and $10. The EpiPen is essential for families with children who have severe allergies to foods like peanuts which can trigger life-threatening allergic reactions.  Mylan also sells a children’s product called EpiPen Jr. which has a retail price matching the adult EpiPen even though it contains half the dosage and is meant for children.

Mylan exploits its monopoly on the EpiPen which delivers lifesaving medicine to fend off allergic reactions.  Mylan’s pricing scheme results in excessive out-of-pocket expenses for the uninsured and those with high-deductible health insurance.  Mylan is currently under investigation by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and state regulatory authorities for its EpiPen pricing scheme.

If you or someone you know purchased, including through insurance, an EpiPen, you may be eligible to receive compensation through a class action lawsuit.  Please contact Stephen J.

Fair Credit Reporting Investigation:

Squitieri & Fearon, LLP is currently investigating lenders’ unlawful practices of pulling consumers’ credit reports without cause or consent. Credit reports contain personal information that is protected by federal law. Lenders can only check a person’s credit report for a reason expressly authorized under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. However, lenders systemically overstep their authority by invasively collecting consumers’ personal information to use for their own gain. Not only do such intrusions violate consumers’ privacy, they also lower consumers’ credit scores, thus jeopardizing approvals for loans or even employment. more »
