NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nationally known plaintiffs' law firm
Napoli Bern Ripka Shkolnik, LLP, filed a class action complaint on February
22, 2013 against The Hertz Corporation, Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. and Hertz
Investors, Inc. for unlawfully overcharging its customers. The complaint,
captioned Frederick Cohen et al v. The Hertz Corporation, et al., was filed in
the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York by NBRS
Senior Partner Alan S. Ripka. The plaintiffs allege that Hertz violated New
York and other states' laws by issuing customer coupons and discounts, while
knowingly imposing sales tax on the pre-discount total. This unlawful practice
has resulted in the overcharging of Hertz customers. Said Ripka: "this
overcharge scheme by a multinational multibillion dollar corporate giant may
have cheated Hertz's customers out of many millions of dollars."

New York and other states have passed legislation and regulations disallowing
this predatory behavior and to protect the public from this unscrupulous
business practice that attempts to overcharge customers under the veil of the
tax code. The class complaint seeks Hertz's compliance with these laws and
regulations and the return of all improperly charged costs and fees to class
members.

Napoli Bern Ripka Shkolnik, LLP, with offices in New York, New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Florida, Illinois and California, advocates
commercial, environmental, professional liability, products liability and
consumer litigation claims for injured plaintiffs and municipalities.
