Sprint charged early termination fees to its cell phone customers that the plaintiffs alleged were unlawful under California law.
We filed a class action lawsuit in the Alameda County Superior Court on behalf of every Sprint customer in California who paid or was charged a flat-fee early termination fee. We litigated the case for more than 13 years including two trials.
The Court approved incentive awards totaling $60,000 to the five named plaintiffs. Class members who paid an early termination fee received $125 in cash. Sprint also agreed not to collect more than $225 million in unpaid early termination fees owed by class members.
