SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Legal Newsline) - A California man is suing a computer game developer, alleging the company made unlawful automatic renewal offers.
Jarrod Secola, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit May 20 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Turbine Inc. and Does 1-10, alleging violations of California's Automatic Renewal Law and its Unfair Competition Law.
