The Frivolous Skapik Lawsuit and New Wealth Advisors Club
On July 13, 2014, Skapik Law Group posts a blog in attempt to gather more plaintiffs.
They posted a blog post, optimized for search engines to troll for more plaintiffs. Many club members have let me know they attempted to post on the site to provide the facts, but were never allowed. The blog post makes one believe there has been a class action lawsuit filed, but this isn't true. They have only filed a lawsuit on behalf of a few people and are seeking to get a judge to certify that a “class” actually exists. In order to get a class they have to show a lot of people had the exact experiences they had. This is not possible as this is not the case. We have hundreds of happy club members.
To date a class has not been certified, and we don’t believe a judge will ever certify a class as each of these people have their own variations as to what allegedly happened to them. The use of the term “class action” is to make people believe there are lots of people suing us. This is not true. Unfortunately, the wheels of justice are very slow and, tentatively, the court should make a ruling on December 7, 2017 as to whether the case will proceed as a class action or on an individual basis.
On October 1, 2017, we filed our opposition to their motion for class certification. It was nearly 3,000 pages, including over 1,100 individual declarations in support of the club and contrary to everything these 9 plaintiffs alleged (pictured above). We feel confident that after nearly four years, this case will be proven to be baseless.
