LOS ANGELES – A Sprint Communications customer alleges the company falsely advertised its services to induce customers to switch providers.
Sylvia Nixon filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Feb. 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Sprint Communications Inc. alleging violation of the Unfair Competition Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in November 2014, she suffered damages from purchasing a service from the defendant that did not provide what was initially promised to her when she signed up for the service. The plaintiff holds Sprint Communications Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly misled and deceived the plaintiff that by purchasing its services, it would pay the cancellation fee from her previous provider and she would get three $350 visa cards, but neither was provided to her.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks order the defendant to engage in a corrective advertising, actual damages, restitution, punitive damages, statutory enhanced damages, all legal fees, interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman P.C. in Woodland Hills.
