Diamond Parking is a company based in Seattle, Washington that owns and operates parking lots in the US states of Alaska, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Florida and Washington and the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. It was founded in 1922 by Josef Diamond.

Lawsuits[edit]

Seattle newspapers report that in 2002 Diamond Parking settled a $2.2 million class action lawsuit regarding the imposition of questionable "collection fees" after customers failed to pay for using Diamond Parking lots in Washington state.[1]

Controversy[edit]

In October 2013, people in British Columbia complained that Diamond Parking was issuing tickets to drivers who were not even parked in their lots.[2]
