SF Towing Refund?

Thursday, June 19th, 2003 · 3 Comments

I read somewhere and have heard recently that due to all the towing company scandals going down in San Francisco lately, there’s some ruling wherein any individual who’s had his or her car towed within the past 5 years is eligible for a substantial refund — up to $400. I just posted to craigslist in hopes of finding out more info, and dropped an email to my Dad, who had also mentioned this. He works for a politically-connected (and former California Assemblyman) lawyer, so I’m sure he can get the scoop.

If anyone has the details on this, please let me know.

    duh….here’s the scoop from my dad, directly from City Tow: “call City Tow directly, 621-8605, ext. 211…..And yes, because of a recent class action lawsuit, you may be qualified to receive a rebate/refund for any towing activity against you in the past.”

    Very cool, but why it didn’t occur to me to contact City Tow directly is beyond me.

    Thanks, Dad!

    so i just spoke with a supervisor at City Tow and he didn’t have a whole lot of info about this class action suit. apparently it’s still in the early stages and was filed by a law student named somebody benjamin – niles benjamin, perhaps?

    in any case, it seems like it’s still too early to do anything.
