LOS ANGELES — A San Bernadino County man has filed a class action lawsuit against a physical fitness business, alleging violation of the Electronic Funds Transfer Act.
Steve Gallion filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Sept. 5, in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Fitness 19 Redlands and Does 1-10, alleging the defendants debited the plaintiff's account without authority.
According to the complaint, Gallion suffered damages from having funds illegally debited from his account. The plaintiff alleges Fitness 19 Redlands automatically debited his account for a one-month trial membership without written authorization.
