Judge: Cable lawsuit not viable

Charter has refused to comment on the lawsuit, other than to say it believes the action is “frivolous.” [email protected] (562)698-0955, Ext. 3022160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

White might have a breach of contract case, Snyder said, but she added that the total amount in claims does not meet the $75,000 federal threshold for damages. “You’ve got to go back to state court,” she told White. In their suit, the Whites claimed Charter Communications billed them for numerous adult programs – at $10.99 each – they never ordered. The charges first appeared on his bills in 2001, then again in 2006. White said the charges caused members of his family to accuse each other of ordering the programming, resulting in arguments. White said he was disappointed by Snyder’s comments, in part because the judge did not acknowledge his assertion that Charter had intentionally added the charges to his bill. WHITTIER – A Whittier man’s $2 million lawsuit accusing Charter Communications of illegally billing him for dozens of adult programs he never ordered is likely to be dismissed, a U.S. District Court judge said Monday. After hearing arguments, Judge Christina Snyder took the case under submission. But Snyder made it clear to William White, who was representing himself in his lawsuit, that she does not believe White has a viable case against the cable giant. “I just can’t conceive of any set of facts that would give the ability to set your claim and prevail,” Snyder said.

But she said White was stretching the point by suing for intentional infliction of emotional distress. last_img read more
