New Prime I
OOIDA v. New Prime, Inc.
U.S. District Court for Western District of Missouri
Violation of Truth-in-Leasing regulations by keeping owner-operators’ maintenance and security deposit escrow accounts if the owner-operator terminates their lease agreement early.
The court ruled that owner-operators who signed leases prior to Jan. 1, 1996, the effective date of the ICC Termination Act, could not prosecute their claims under the federal truth-in-leasing regulations without imposing impermissible retroactive effects. Subsequently, the federal judge in Springfield, MO announced that he would award attorney fees and costs in excess of $500,000 to New Prime. OOIDA appealed the decision to the Eight Circuit. That court has now agreed with OOIDA and has overturned the lower court’s fee award to Prime.
