Well on its way to becoming fodder for a Lifetime movie, the class action suit against Redbox over multi-day rental fees will continue despite Redbox’s efforts to have it dismissed. St. Clair County Circuit Judge Patrick Young has denied a motion by Redbox to dismiss the suit brought against it by lead plaintiff Laurie Piechur and her upstanding legal representation.
Judge Young’s recent rulings haven’t all been bad for Redbox, however, as the judge also denied Piechur’s summary judgment move requesting that Illinois law be applied to the case. The next step in the case will take place on July 16, the deadline set by Judge Young for both parties to respond to “certain discovery requests.”
On to the comments, Insiders, as we debate the validity of Piechur’s claim and the level of frivolity in lawsuits that the legal system will tolerate.
