HughesNet Early Termination Fees Revisited? The Sprint-Nextel Case

Following the HughesNet Class Action lawsuit filed by the law firm of Pogust, Braslow & Millrood, LLC, which in part asserts claims by subscribers for unlawful early termination fees (ETF), another lawsuit against Sprint-Nextel has now been filed in federal court.

Specifically, the suit is seeking ETF refunds for a nationwide class of subscribers, with the plaintiffs alleging that the cell phone giant has, since 1999, charged approximately $1.2 billion in ETFs.

This suit results from a recently completed trial in which Sprint-Nextel was found to be violating California state law with its termination fees. That suit established that the fees were arbitrary, and designed to prevent unhappy customers from dropping their Sprint-Nextel services.
