Kugler Kandestin files class action lawsuit on behalf of Netflix users who were charged higher fees

On August 11, 2017, Kugler Kandestin filed a Motion for authorization to institute a class action on behalf of Netflix users who were unilaterally charged higher fees.

The Motion alleges that the notice sent by Netflix to inform its users of the fee increase did not comply with the public order provisions of the Consumer Protection Act. Notably, the notice failed to advise users of the fee that they were previously paying, or their right to cancel their membership if they refused the increase.

The Motion seeks the reimbursement of all increased fees paid to Netflix after August 11, 2014, following Netflix’s notice, as well as punitive damages. For more information, please click here.
