Louisville/Jefferson County, Nos. 07C1004289 and 08C1001063, (Jefferson Circuit Court, Division Six) and now known as Bolus and Chauvin v. PARC.
The Jefferson County, Kentucky Circuit Court has certified a class action against the Parking Authority of River City, Inc. ("PARC"). Plaintiffs claim that the Defendant, PARC, unlawfully collected parking fines and related penalties from January 1, 2002, through December 31, 2008. PARC denies these allegations, and the Court has not made any ruling as to the merits of Plaintiffs' claims. The outcome of this case is unknown.
Individuals are included if they paid one or more parking tickets more than 7 days after receiving the ticket from the Louisville/Jefferson County Parking authority (PARC) during 2002–2008.
