NEWARK, N.J. (Legal Newsline) – Three New Jersey consumers have filed a class action lawsuit against a Texas energy provider alleging it uses unlawful budget billing practices.
Joshua Little, Samantha Mason and Gregory Stewart filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Nov. 28 in the U.S. District Court of New Jersey against Ambit Energy Holdings LLC and Ambit Northeast LLC, alleging violation of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, unjust enrichment and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages from being charged additional for their monthly budget bills.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek monetary relief, restitution, monetary damages, treble damages, compensatory damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Steven L. Wittels, J. Burkett McInturff and Tiasha Palikovic of Wittels Law in Armonk, New York.
