In several blog posts and legal alerts, we have previously written about disparate impact and auto finance.  Together with our colleague, Jonathan Selkowitz, we have recently written an article on “Auto Finance and Disparate Impact: Substantive Lessons Learned from Class Certification Decisions.”

The article, which was published in the May 1, 2015 edition of the Consumer Financial Services Law Report, discusses the substantive implications that class certification appellate decisions may have for disparate impact pricing claims alleged against assignees of motor vehicle retail installment sale contracts.
