Insiders interested in news regarding the late fee lawsuit against Redbox are in luck, because litigious Laurie Piechur and her crack legal team are at it again, this time asking for a summary judgment that would apply Illinois law to their suit. Piechur and company feel that the suit could represent a nationwide class action, with “members ranging from California to Wisconsin”.
The recent motion for partial summary judgment cites “a preliminary investigation that allegedly has turned up more than 200 complaints” that resemble Piechur’s. Redbox’s recent motion to dismiss the suit and other matters will be heard in court on May 27.
Conventional wisdom in the comments on previous stories regarding this suit says that Piechur’s claims are without merit and should be tossed out. What are the chances of a court finding some validity in the lawsuit, Insiders? Would any of you consider participating in a nationwide class action? Give us your opinion in the comments.
