What is the case about?

This case is a class action lawsuit which was filed against C & C Boats. Eric Heraux filed the original Class Action Complaint on July 13, 2015.

The Action was brought as a putative class action and sought damages, penalties, and restitution, as well as interest, attorneys’ fees, and costs.
