'Tax lady' Roni Deutch says lawsuit is political
Tax | 2010/08/25 12:51

"Tax Lady" Roni Deutch says California Attorney General Jerry Brown is engaging in election year politics by filing a lawsuit accusing her law firm of false advertising and misleading consumers.

Deutch said in a statement Tuesday that she will fight the $34 million lawsuit filed a day earlier in Sacramento County Superior Court by Brown, the Democrats' nominee for governor.

She says her firm has saved thousands of people tens of millions of dollars through negotiations with the Internal Revenue Service over nearly 20 years.

The suit accuses her of vastly overstating the number of delinquent taxpayers she has helped. The suit also alleges she ran up clients' fees through false billings.

Brown spokeswoman Christine Gasparac says the lawsuit is backed by evidence gathered during a monthslong investigation.

Class action or a representative action is a form of lawsuit in which a large group of people collectively bring a claim to court and/or in which a class of defendants is being sued. This form of collective lawsuit originated in the United States and is still predominantly a U.S. phenomenon, at least the U.S. variant of it. In the United States federal courts, class actions are governed by Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule. Since 1938, many states have adopted rules similar to the FRCP. However, some states like California have civil procedure systems which deviate significantly from the federal rules; the California Codes provide for four separate types of class actions. As a result, there are two separate treatises devoted solely to the complex topic of California class actions. Some states, such as Virginia, do not provide for any class actions, while others, such as New York, limit the types of claims that may be brought as class actions.
