Moore v. Verizon Communications, Inc., et al

Citation Number: No. CV 09-1823

Brief of the Federal Trade Commission as amicus curiae before the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, expressing concerns that the proposed class action settlement agreement is flawed and should be rejected.The proposed settlement fails to provide adequate compensation to consumers that were victims of unauthorized billing, does not provide adequate information to class members about their rights or the settlement's impact, is unlikely to deter future fraudulent conduct, and may impair the Commission's ability to provide restitution in its enforcement actions.
