Asbury Park Press:
Vonage Holdings Corp. has agreed to pay $4.75 million to settle a class action lawsuit that was filed in 2008 over the company’s marketing and sales practices.
The settlement is expected to pay “dollar for dollar” to consumers, including those who were charged for service despite an introductory offer for one free month of service, according to Seeger Weiss, a Philadelphia law firm.
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in New Jersey in 2008, accused Vonage of engaging in “deceptive advertising.”
The settlement “gives them the dollars they lost,” said Scott Alan George, a lawyer with Seeger Weiss
