The class action suit brought against Redbox last fall by Laurie Piechur continues, with Redbox moving for a protective order at the end of July. The protective order would shield Redbox from making public documents that it considers sensitive and trade-related. Ms. Piechur and her legal squad, for their part, have filed a series of motions demanding certain documents from Redbox.
Just to quickly review: Piechur and co. are seeking damages in excess of $350,000 from Redbox, claiming that the kiosk operator deceived customers by claiming that it doesn’t charge late fees. From the original filing:
“The Coinstar unit has violated its claim that it doesn’t charge late fees by charging an additional $1 for DVDs that are returned any time after the 9 p.m. deadline after the initial 24-hour period has expired.”
