LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) — A California woman is suing publishing businesses, alleging breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation.
Pamela Tsao of Irving, California, filed a class action complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Oct. 17 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against West Publishing Corporation, and Thomson Reuters Holdings, Inc., alleging failure to inform about the automatic renewal provision of their contract.
