Class Actions

Class action against Netflix, inc. and Netflix B.V.

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 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 subscription if they refused the increase.

The motion seeks the reimbursement of all increases paid to Netflix after August 11, 2014, following Netflix’s notice, as well as punitive damages. To view the Motion, please click here.
