SACRAMENTO – A subscriber has filed a class-action lawsuit against a Utah company
alleging that it did not offer how to cancel a subscription to its service.
Kyle Johnson filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on May 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against
Pluralsight LLC and Does 1-10
alleging violation of the state's Automatic Renewal Law and Unfair Competition Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was not informed that he needed to cancel his subscription after the free trial period had expired, which automatically placed him on a monthly subscription that renews every month. The plaintiff holds Pluralsight LLC and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to disclose to its subscribers that they need to unsubscribe from the service upon the expiration of the free trial.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages, full restitution in the amount of the subscription payments, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Scott J. Ferrell, Richard H. Hikida, David W. Reid and Victoria C. Knowles of Newport Trial Group APC in Newport Beach.
