SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Legal Newsline) – A California man is suing an online vendor of computer training courses, alleging it automatically renewed his subscription to the service without his authorization.
Kyle Johnson, individually and behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Pluralsight LLC and 10 unnamed defendants, alleging violations of California's automatic renewal and unfair competition laws.
According to the complaint, Johnson signed up for a 10-day trial subscription to the defendant’s training services, but did not receive notice that his credit card would be automatically charged for a renewal each month once the trial period expired. The suit alleges Pluralsight fails to inform customers about the automatic renewal, details of the cancellation policy or when the renewal can be canceled.
Johnson and other class members seek damages, restitution, declaratory and injunctive relief, plus attorney fees. They are represented by attorneys Scott J. Ferrell, Richard H. Hikida, David W. Reid and Victoria C. Knowles of Newport Trial Group APC in Newport Beach, California.
