C.R. England appeals $1.3 million judgement to OOIDA

| April 11, 2013

C.R. England is appealing a federal court’s final judgment favoring the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association in its 11-year-old class-action suit, which awarded $1.3 million to OOIDA in mid-March, according to court documents.

The U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has set an April 22 deadline for attorneys representing the Salt Lake City-based carrier attorneys to appear and to submit transcripts.

Of the more than 6,000 class-action members, an estimated 1,000 appeared eligible for a cash award. The association has reported it will file a counter-claim this week.

In 2007, the federal district court concluded C.R. England violated federal Truth-in-Leasing regulations from 1998-2002. Its agreement with owner-operators did not comply with the charge-back, forced-purchase and escrow provisions of the leasing regulations. Also, CRE’s lease violated the leasing regulations regarding escrow, OOIDA added.

The court then ordered an exacting and time consuming accounting of England’s escrow funds.
