Memphis Property Tax Class Action Reaches Settlement
A $7.4 million settlement has been reached in the property tax class action case against Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson. Between 2004 and 2012, Linebarger collected back property taxes for the city of Memphis and charged a 20 percent collection fee. This lawsuit challenged Linebarger’s 20 percent fee, citing a Tennessee law that limits attorneys’ fees for collecting delinquent taxes to no more than 10 percent.
The property tax lawsuit was brought by Donati Law and Watson and Burns, class action specialists, on behalf of Ms. Brenda J. Wright Youngblood and other clients. Working with class action specialists and after vigorous litigation, this case was resolved on behalf of our clients and members of the class.
Memphis residents who believe they overpaid when they settled delinquent taxes have until September 18, 2013 to submit claims to the settlement administrator. If you received a settlement notice, you must submit a claim form to the settlement administrator. A claim form must be submitted by the deadline in order to receive any portion of the settlement.
