NEW JERSEY SUPREME COURT WEIGHS IN ON THE VALIDITY OF LEASES IN THE MOTOR CARRIER INDUSTRY AND WHO AN OWNER IS UNDER TRUTH IN LENDING REGULATIONS


In a published opinion, on April 25, 2019, the Supreme Court of New Jersey affirmed the Appellate Division’s holding (affirming the trial court’s holding) in the case of Gonzalo Chirino v. Proud 2 Haul, Inc., which involved a violation of the Federal Truth in Lending (“TIL”) regulations in the motor carrier industry. Specifically, the Court struck down the defendants’ strategy of having a third-party lease trucks from owner-operators, and in turn, having that third-party assign all services and equipment it leased from the owner-operators to defendants, stating such an arrangement violates the TIL regulations (49 CFR 376.1 to .42.).
