Finn Law Group Files Suit Alleging Multiple Violations by Orlando-based Resort Company
TAMPA, FL (December 21, 2012) — Finn Law Group, P.A., a Florida-based law firm, has filed suit in Florida’s Orange County Circuit Court (Case #2012-CA-020314-O) against Wyndham Vacation Resorts, Inc. and Wyndham Vacation Ownership, Inc. The firm and its principal attorney, Michael D. Finn, are plaintiffs along with two couples that are Finn Law Group clients. The lawsuit alleges violations of both the Federal and State of Florida’s Debt Collection Practices Act, two counts of Florida’s Deceptive and Unfair Practices Act, and two counts of Tortuous Interference by Wyndham of Finn’s established attorney-client relationships with the firm’s clients.
In April of this year, Finn Law Group filed Deceptive Sales Practice Claims against Wyndham with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and with the Attorney Generals of 17 states where over 100 of Finn’s clients (the majority of them senior citizens) previously purchased timeshare interests from Wyndham. These matters are still pending.
According to Finn, Wyndham routinely engages in conduct that is calculated to discourage timeshare owners from hiring lawyers to assist them with their timeshare grievances against the company. Finn believes timeshare owners have the absolute right to hire legal counsel if they feel that they have been victimized by their resort, particularly if the resort has turned a deaf ear to the owners themselves. “It’s one thing to stack the deck with purchase contracts completely favoring the resort, it’s quite another to attempt to outright circumvent or to deprive their owners from utilizing licensed legal professionals to assist them with their legal issues,” says Finn who is apparently determined to keep the pressure on Wyndham and its business methodology.
