BOSTON, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boston-based law firm, Shapiro Haber & Urmy LLP, has filed a Class Action in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida against General Motors (GM) on behalf of its client, Cadillac owner Geri Siano Carriuolo, and other purchasers of General Motors cars that had new car window labels (called Monroney stickers) with false crash safety ratings. The new car window sticker on Ms. Carriuolo's 2014 Cadillac CTS Sedan falsely stated that that model Cadillac had been subjected to three different crash tests Frontal Crash Driver, Frontal Crash Passenger, and Rollover by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and had obtained a five-star rating by the NHTSA (the highest possible rating) for each of those crash tests.
GM has since admitted that the 2014 Cadillac CTS Sedan, the CTS VSport, and other Cadillac models not only had not received five-star crash test ratings, they in fact had not been crash tested by the NHTSA at all! In addition to Shapiro Haber & Urmy, the plaintiff and the class are represented by the West Palm Beach, Florida law firms: Liggio Benrubi PA (http://www.liggiolaw.com/) and Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Prather, Keen & Littky-Rubin (http://www.clarkfountain.com/).
The complaint alleges that as a result of GM's false representations regarding the crash test results, the plaintiff and class members suffered damages due to the significant decrease in the value of the cars they purchased. The plaintiff seeks to recover those damages for herself and other purchasers of those cars.
The class action is entitled Geri Siano Carriuolo v.
