Following Kathleen Kane’s conviction for perjury & obstruction, company reps reaffirm that the legitimacy of the lawsuit had always been questionable
Philadelphia, PA –AA Auto Protection is pleased to finally put a 2 ½-year-old lawsuit behind them and move forward with repairing their reputation after ex-attorney general Kathleen Kane wrongly sued the company in 2015 for failing to honor motor vehicle warranties. The company’s representatives have refuted the allegations from day one.
“We want to thank Attorney General Josh Shapiro, who saw the suit for what was, in his efforts to work with us and resolve this matter as quickly as possible,” stated Daniel Rorapaugh, owner of AA Auto Protection. “It’s great to know that we can put the suit behind us and continue helping our customers to avoid costly auto repair expenses.”
The suit alleged that AA Auto Protection and its officers failed to honor their cancellation policy by not offering refunds to eligible consumers, and sold warranties administered by a company that had gone out of business. Company reps maintain they were the wrong target of the lawsuit.
“Since the beginning, we’ve stated that the party responsible for this unfortunate situation was Administration Plus based out of Dublin, Ohio—not AA Auto Protection. In a series of events, this company along with Western Insurance ceased doing business, resulting in thousands of consumers with vehicle service contracts that would not be honored by Administration Plus,” stated Rorapaugh.
According to Rorpaugh, this also resulted in numerous customers not receiving requested refunds due to the fact that Administration Plus was now defunct, a horrible situation that AA Auto Protection was powerless to rectify. Administration Plus has since entered into an assurance of voluntary compliance with the Ohio Attorney General’s office. In this assurance, Administration Plus admitted errors on their part caused customers to not be refunded properly. Any information pertaining to this assurance can be obtained by contacting the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.
Determined to defend the company’s reputation, AA Auto Protection reps announced their intention to fight the allegations made in the lawsuit in court—especially after the criminal misdeeds of Kathleen Kane’s office came to light.
“In the end, Attorney General Josh Shapiro and his team were not interested in taking the case to court. They decided it was best for both parties to resolve the issue and settle out of court. AA Auto agreed to settle,” stated Rorpaugh. “I hope the finality of this situation will persuade our competitors to discontinue spreading false information and lies in order to gain market share.”
Now that the lawsuit was finally settled this month, AA Auto Protection is working diligently to educate their customers on the true facts involved in this case. They remain committed to providing excellent and honest service to consumers.
