DirecTV Satellite Receiver Lease Fee Litigation
Court: United States District Court for the Central District of California
Case No.: CV-08-01558-FMC
Wexler Wallace is prosecuting a consumer class action in California federal court against DirecTV, where DirecTV customers allege they are the owners of the receivers they purchased at Best Buy stores. DirecTV contends that the receivers are subject to a “lease” agreement pursuant to which customers are charged monthly fees. Among other things, the case seeks a ruling that DirecTV customers own their equipment and DirecTV’s purported lease is invalid. Plaintiffs also seek corrective disclosures, a return of improperly charged lease fees, and a refund of non-return fees.
