RV News publishes voluntary protection article by Partner Jean Noonan
In the August issue of RV News, Partner Jean Noonan presents a case study involving the Pennsylvania attorney general's allegation that a PA new car dealership sold a voluntary protection product that "failed to provide any meaningful value relative to the consideration paid by the consumer." Jean cautions RV dealers that although this enforcement action involved a car dealership, the same issues and compliance risks apply to RV dealers when they sell voluntary protection products. The case study demonstrates the risks of not carefully determining that each voluntary protection product has value for consumers in all different situations.
