FORT MYERS, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the trial date of August 22, 2018, at 1:30 p.m. EDT for the civil theft, intentional negligence, breach of good faith and fair dealing, and felony grand theft civil lawsuit, Howe vs. Enterprise Holdings and National Car Rental (18-SC-001768).
“Today I met with Enterprise Holdings counsel for a pre-trial mediation,” confirmed David Howe, United States of America child identity guardian and plaintiff in Howe vs. Enterprise Holdings and National Car Rental. “Although I appreciate the effort made by tortfeasor’s counsel and the professional mediator, we were unable to reach an agreement acceptable for each side.
“And that’s ultimately a good thing,” Howe continued. “Because from my perspective – as a crime victim and survivor of a predatory ‘ding and dent’ scam that’s reportedly harmed so many others that consumer advocate Christopher Elliott lost count (https://www.elliott.org/blog/enterprise-determines-damaged-rental/), it’s much more paramount for this particularly predatory case, including the remarkable crime scene evidence that was twice presented to Senator Marco Rubio’s staff and also the Office of Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, to get the public exposure it so desperately deserves. Indeed, as most individuals know, mediation is confidential and therefore I’m unable to discuss any of the details from the hearing today.
“Of course, this case is much bigger than mere equity for one crime victim,” Howe continued. “It’s much bigger than the upcoming civil trial in Fort Myers, Florida, the location of the crime. In fact, as the professionals from FL AG Pam Bondi’s Office indicated to me during my hour-long meeting with Director Butler and senior investigators in 2017, this case is ultimately about desperately needed legislative efforts to change the legal predatory tactics of an industry that is able to strip a consumer of jury-trial due process through disgraceful arbitration clauses and unfair adhesion contracts, among others (https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180428005028/en/Child-ID-Guardian-Howe-Congress-Enterprise-Car).
“To be sure, this case is really about U.S. lawmakers enacting uniform and predictable standards to protect the citizens of the United States -- as well as our sisters and brothers from around the world who come to this nation and expect the good faith and fair dealing covenant, but who very often receive something quite to the contrary that’s designed – and very effective as a matter of fact - to separate honest and decent unsuspecting consumers from their hard-earned money.
“Today, I invite local and international media to mark their calendars for this important trial. I encourage correspondents and investigative journalists to come to Lee County Justice Center to witness the overwhelming evidence and systematic scam that has ensnared so many of our fellow sisters and brothers.

"As a part-time resident in the state of Florida, I know that I’m not legally bound to report a crime. However, in the state of Ohio, where I also am a resident, a citizen is legally bound to report a felony crime (http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2921.22). For the record, I take that duty very seriously regardless if it is mandated by law,” Howe concluded.
