The First Circuit Court of Appeals in McKENNA, v. FIRST HORIZON HOME LOAN CORP., 2007 WL 210850 (1st Cir. January 29, 2007) recently held that there is no right for a class of consumers to sue for rescission under the Truth in Lending Act ("TILA") and Massachusetts Consumer Credit Cost Disclosure Act ("MCCCDA"). Consumers may, of course, still bring individual cases for rescission and both individual and class cases for damages. However, class cases for rescission and corresponding declaratory relief is off-the-table in the First Circuit.
