AT&T Unauthorized Charges Class Action

After investigating several consumer complaints, Girard Gibbs filed a class action lawsuit alleging that AT&T entered into agreements with local exchange carriers that allowed AT&T to place unauthorized long distance charges on monthly telephone bills. The lawsuit also contended that AT&T refused to refund the charges unless the customer switched over to AT&T long distance, and alleged this practice violated the Communications Act of 1934.

Girard Gibbs LLP negotiated a class action settlement that provided cash reimbursements to affected telephone customers across the nation. The Honorable David R. Herndon approved the settlement, writing that our consumer attorneys had "conducted the litigation and achieved the settlement with skill, perseverance and diligent advocacy."
