LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) - A California woman is suing the operator of a website that sells razor subscriptions, alleging its automatic renewal and continuous service offers are illegal.
Kristyne Hanberg, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit April 22 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against 800Razors.com LLC and Does 1-10, alleging violations of California's Automatic Renewal Law and its Unfair Competition Law.
The suit alleges that when Hanberg and others in the class purchased subscriptions for any products from 800Razors.com, the company made automatic renewal or continuous service offers but failed to present the terms of these offers in a clear and conspicuous manner in visual proximity to the request for consent to the offer.
The defendant, the lawsuit states, also charged customers without first obtaining their consent to the agreement containing the offer terms and failed to provide an acknowledgment that includes the offer terms, cancellation policy and information on how to cancel, in a way that could be retained by the customer.
Hanberg and others in the class seek declaratory and injunctive relief, damages and restitution, plus attorney fees and costs. They are represented by attorneys Gillian L. Wade of Milstein Adelman Jackson Fairchild & Wade in Los Angeles, and Scott J. Ferrell, Richard H. Hikida, David W. Reid and Victoria C. Knowles of Newport Trial Group in Newport Beach, California.
