GM Financial Settles Justice Department Suit with $3.5 Million

Resolves allegations of improperly repossessing servicemember’s vehicles.

The Justice Department announced last week that GM Financial agreed to settle a lawsuit brought against them. The Justice Department alleged that the company violated the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) by illegally repossessing the vehicles of 71 servicemembers. GM Financial was also sued for mishandling over 1,000 vehicle lease termination requests and agreed to pay over $3.5 million to settle these lawsuits.

“Members of our Armed Forces should not have to suffer financial hardship as a result of their service to our nation,” said Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke. “The Civil Rights Division remains steadfast in its commitment to enforcing laws that safeguard the rights of our servicemembers so that they can devote their energy and attention to the defense of our country.”
