Court: Moving company can be sued for late relocation

A couple may sue Atlas Van Lines for the amount of additional mortgage payments and lost profit resulting from the moving company’s failure to live up to its promise to move them by a certain date, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit ruled in September.

A lower court erred in concluding that claims were not determinable under the Carmack Amendment just because they were not for specific dollar amounts, the appeals court said.
