After two contentious hearings, Ayala was able to defeat Exclusive Residence’s (ER) Motion to force Ayala’s client into an expensive, time consuming arbitration process.
Ayala filed the lawsuit against ER, a timeshare seller, back in October 2019 alleging that through deceptive, well-planned methods, ER targets innocent consumers (mostly foreigners) to sell them a phony vacation package with the single goal of getting consumers to agree to a mandatory five-hours plus “timeshare presentation.” At the “time share presentation” consumers are worked through innumerous speeches, and given food and alcohol. The long presentations keep a single purpose: to get consumers to sign a timeshare contract Exclusive Residences knows most consumers can’t afford.
The Order denying the Motion to Arbitrate means that the case, filed as a class action, now moves towards class certification and trial.
