SACRAMENTO – A subscriber has filed a class-action suit against a Massachusetts business alleging it did not provide instruction on how to cancel its services.
Jarrod Secola filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on May 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against
Turbine Inc., citing violation of the California's Automatic Renewal Law and Unfair Competition Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he did not receive any acknowledgement on how to cancel a subscription he purchased, making it hard for him unsubscribe to the automatically renewed service. The plaintiff holds Turbine Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to notify their subscribers of the option to cancel their service.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages and full restitution in an amount to be proven in trial, injunctive relief, 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.
