SACRAMENTO – The owners of video franchises allege that they are owed their security deposits.
Comcast of Sacramento I LLC, Comcast Sacramento II LLC and Comcast Sacramento III LLC filed a complaint on June 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Sacramento Metropolitan Cable Television Commission citing conversion and common count.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they were granted a video franchise in several communities. The suit states that some franchises were later terminated in favor of state-issued video franchises in 2008 and 2011. The plaintiffs hold Sacramento Metropolitan Cable Television Commission and Does 1 through 20 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to return the security deposit to plaintiffs upon the termination of their former franchises in accordance with Sacramento municipal code.
The plaintiffs seek compensatory damages, interest at the legal rate, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. They are represented by Jill Rowe, Patrick M. Rosvall and Scott M. McLeod of Cooper, White & Cooper LLP in San Francisco.
