Federal Trade Commission’s Memorandum of Law as Amicus Curiae, presenting the Commission’s opposition to the proposed settlement of a class-action challenging unauthorized charges from third-party merchants placed on consumers’ telephone bills through a practice known as “cramming.” The memorandum explains that the proposed settlement is not fair, reasonable, or adequate because it imposes an unduly burdensome claims process, contains inadequate injunctive relief, imposes an unfair and overbroad release, and improperly rewards plaintiff’s counsel.
