United States Supreme Court Rejects Sprint’s Latest Appeal; Bursor & Fisher’s $299 Million Trial Victory Survives – Again

Today the United States Supreme Court rejected Sprint’s petition for certiorari seeking review of Bursor & Fisher’s $299 million trial victory for a class of 1.9 million Sprint customers who were charged illegal termination fees. After a month-long trial in 2008, the class plaintiffs represented by Bursor & Fisher prevailed on all of their claims challenging Sprint’s termination fees.

“This is another significant milestone on the long road to justice,” said Scott A. Bursor, plaintiffs’ lead trial counsel. “We filed this case in 2003. In 2008 we won a trial, prevailing on every one of our claims. We were awarded 100% of the damages we sought. Unfortunately Sprint has delayed justice for years with frivolous appeals. Now that the United States Supreme Court has denied Sprint’s latest frivolous appeal, there is a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. Sprint will soon be held to account for $299 million in illegal termination fees.”
