David Meyer served as lead counsel on behalf of over 200 retirees in Ohio in an unauthorized trading and breach of fiduciary class action against Prudential Securities. Following a multiple week trial, the jury returned a verdict for $12 million in compensatory damages and $250 million in punitive damages. After a seven year legal battle, including multiple appeals by Prudential, every retiree class member received more than 100% of their individual damages, even after deducting attorneys’ fees and expenses.
In a case filed in Chicago, Meyer Wilson and its co-counsel achieved the largest all-cash class settlement in the history of the TCPA. Consumers who received automated or prerecorded calls on their cell phones were able to make claims for their share of the common fund; more than 1.4 million persons did so and received checks as a direct result of this historic settlement.
In April 2015, HSBC agreed to pay $39.975 million into a settlement fund for the benefit of consumers, represented by Meyer Wilson, who received automated or prerecorded message on their cell phones from HSBC. This was one of the largest settlements in the history of the TCPA.
