Kevin Tucker - Co-Founder

Kevin Tucker (he/him/his) is the co-founder of East End Trial Group. Before founding the firm, Kevin was a partner at a national class action law firm. He splits his practice between the firm’s consumer class action litigation and ADA practices.

Kevin has prosecuted a variety of MDLs on behalf of individual consumers and financial institutions, including:

  • In Re FedLoan Student Loan Servicing Litigation, MDL 2833 (E.D.Pa.): Kevin served as a committee member for a leadership team, where he helped litigate the case on behalf of a putative nationwide class of student loan borrowers allegedly injured by their servicer and the U.S. Department of Education.
  • In Re Equifax, Inc. Customer Data Security Breach Litigation, MDL 2800 (N.D.Ga.): Kevin served as a committee member for a prosecution team, where he helped litigate the case on behalf of financial institution plaintiffs in one of the most high-profile MDLs pending currently.
  • In re Vizio, Inc. Consumer Privacy Litigation, MDL No. 2693 (C.D. Cal.): Kevin helped litigate the case on behalf of those who purchased Vizio “Smart TVs,” which contained software that collected information about users in a manner that allegedly violated numerous consumer protection statutes. After the lawsuit was filed, and substantially because of it, Vizio changed its disclosures to Vizio Smart TV consumers regarding its Viewing Data collection and sharing practices. As part of this change, Vizio provided notice of Viewing Data collection and asked for affirmative express consent. Ultimately, the court-approved a settlement of $17 million.

Kevin has also secured a number of landmark decisions persuading courts across the country that the ADA requires public accommodations to make their digital properties equally accessible to consumers that rely on auxiliary aids for access. These decisions include:

  • Gniewkowski v. Lettuc Entertain You Enterprises, Inc., 251 F. Supp. 3d 908 (W.D. Pa. 2017).
  • Gathers v. 1-800-Flowers.com, Inc., 2018 WL 839381 (D. Mass. Feb. 12, 2018).
  • Access Now, Inc. v. Blue Apron, LLC, 2017 WL 5186353 (D.N.H. Nov. 8, 2017).

In 2019, Kevin was elected Secretary of the University of Pittsburgh Law Alumni Association Board of Governors.
