Class Action: A+ Auto Service, LLC v. Republic Services of South Carolina, LLC
Duffy & Young is representing the plaintiff in a class action lawsuit against Republic Services of South Carolina in U.S. District Court here in Charleston. Republic Services is in the business of providing recycling and waste disposal services and has thousands of customers across South Carolina. The lawsuit seeks damages on behalf of the plaintiff and a putative class of existing and former customers of Republic Services based on Republic Services’ alleged overcharging of its customers by increasing rates without customer consent and in other ways that are not permitted under Republic Services’ form service contract or South Carolina law. Republic Services has confirmed that its existing commercial and industrial customers that had a service contract with Republic Services paid at least $12 million in price increases between April 9, 2018, and the date plaintiff filed this lawsuit. This amount does not include price increases for residential customers.
The proposed class includes:
“All South Carolina customers of Republic Services (including individuals, companies, corporations, partnerships, associations, or other entities) who were or are a party to Republic Services’ Service Contract at any time between April 14, 2018, through the date of class certification.”
