NEW YORK (Legal Newsline) – Consumers allege they paid nearly $100 to stream the Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor boxing match and that the streaming service was defective.
Hasan Daas, Brad Grier, Wesley Inman, Matt LeBoeuf, Damian Luna, Lloyd Trushel, Mark White and Dongsheng Liu filed a complaint on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated on Sept. 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Neulion Inc. and Zuffa LLC alleging breach of implied warranty of merchantability and other counts.
According to the complaint, Zuffa contracted with NeuLion to offer live pay-per-view streaming service of the Aug. 26 boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor. The service was sold for $99.95, the suit states.
The plaintiffs hold Neulion Inc. and Zuffa LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide a clear feed of the boxing matches to the plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek damages, interest, all legal fees, restitution and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Innessa Melamed Huot of Faruqi & Faruqi LLP in New York.
