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.
