SAN JOSE — A Florida man is suing Netflix, alleging it wrongly increased the subscription price for long-term subscribers.
George Keritsis filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all other persons similarly situated, June 29, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California San Jose against Netflix Inc. alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, in June, Keritsis began suffering monetary damages as the result of a price increase on his Netflix subscription plan. The plaintiff alleges Netflix had given him lifetime guarantee in 2011 that his subscription plan would only be $7.99 per month but increased it to $8.68 and then sent plaintiff a notification that the cost would rise to $9.99 per month.
Keritsis seeks a trial by jury, compensatory damages and any other damages, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by attorneys Robert C. Schubert and Noah M. Schubert of Schubert Jonckheer & Kolbe LLP in San Francisco, and by Thomas G. Shapiro of Shapiro Haber & Urmy LLP in Boston.
