Late last week, Title Max answered the class action lawsuit filed by Christman Kelley PC on behalf of several Denton residents who had borrowed against their car or truck title.
In addition to denying the allegations in the lawsuit, the company filed to move the case to federal court, in the Eastern District of Texas, U.S. District Court.
I called the plaintiff’s firm to find out whether they would go along with the change or file a motion to remand it back to state district court in Denton. Attorney Kenton Brice said they are still investigating the matter. However, in general, plaintiffs have a harder time in federal court than in state court, he said.
The firm has about 30 days to respond with a motion to remand.
