Jefferson Loan Co., Inc. v. Session (397 N.J.Super. 520)

NJ Appellate Division
approved for publication January 15, 2008

An assignee of a retail installment sales contract can be held liable under the Consumer Fraud Act for its unconscionable commercial practices and activities related to its repossession and collection practices in connection with the performance of the retail installment sales contract.

Bosland v. Warnock Dodge, Inc. (396 N.J.Super. 267)

NJ Appellate Division
approved for publication October 18, 2007
Argued by Andrew R. Wolf

As long as a consumer can show a loss that is quantifiable and measurable, the consumer does not have to demand a refund of any overcharge before filing suit to satisfy the requirement of an “ascertainable loss” under the Consumer Fraud Act. Furthermore, to satisfy the requirements of the Truth-in-Consumer Contract, Warranty and Notice Act, a consumer does not have to allege that the contract language is confusing; such a provision is a part of the Plain Language Act, which is separate and distinct from the TCCWNA.
