Parker v. United States by District of Columbia Court of Appeals.
Appellants Robert Snowder, Nadine Garrick, Lawanda Harris, Ronald Kennedy, Verna Montague, and Felicia Moore appeal from a judgment in favor of appellees the District of Columbia and towing companies Perrys Towing and Storage, Inc., R&R Towing, Farco Towing, and Towing by TRP (collectively, "towing companies"). Appellants attempted to bring a class action lawsuit against the District and the towing companies under numerous theories -- breach of bailment, conversion, civil conspiracy, unjust enrichment, and violations of the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Procedures Act ("CPPA") -- seeking to recover damages on behalf of people who were charged substantial fees for towing and storage services that were imposed without adequate notice or consent. The trial court denied class certification and ultimately entered summary judgment on all claims. We affirm the trial courts denial of class certification as well as the dismissal of all claims against the District of Columbia. Regarding the towing companies, we affirm the courts dismissal of appellants breach of bailment claim; however, because the trial court did not discuss or decide appellants other common law claims, we must remand the case to the trial court for consideration of those claims.
