Attorney: City's Tow Ordinance Led to Forfeiture of over 300 Vehicles


The City of Springfield’s tow ordinance led to the forfeiture of over 320 family vehicles in 2012, according to an attorney representing what could be a class action suit against the city.

 

Don Birner says that the city collected more than $1.2 million dollars in 2011 and 2012 and 327 families in 2012 let their vehicles go because they were unable to pay the $500 fine assessed by the city.

 

That fee doesn’t include whatever charges are placed on impoundment and storage. Birner represents Calvin Christian in the lawsuit, which could grow as a class action suit with the addition of more names.

 

The city says they could not comment on pending litigation.
