Dish Network Customer Files Electronic Funds Transfer Act EFTA Class Action Lawsuit Complaint Against Dish Network.
A class action lawsuit has been filed against satellite provider Dish Network, LLC (“Dish Network” or “Dish” or “Defendant”) in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (styled Jacqueline Townsel v. Dish Network LLC) alleging, among other things, that Dish Network initiated electronic funds transfers without prior written authorization of the owners of debit card or bank accounts and allegedly failed to provide reasonable advance notice of its intent to initiate electronic fund transfers, purportedly in violation of the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, 15 U.S.C. §1693 et seq., according to the Dish Network class action lawsuit complaint.
The Dish Network class action lawsuit complaint is reportedly brought on behalf of the following putative classes of persons, unless otherwise excluded:
The Consent Class consists of all natural persons in the state of Illinois to whom defendant initiated an electronic fund transfer without the prior written authorization of the owner of the account from which the electronic fund transfer secured or attempted to secure payment on or after one year prior to the date of filing the complaint in this case and twenty days thereafter.
The Notice Class consists of all natural persons in the state of Illinois to whom defendant did not provide reasonable advance notice of its intent to initiate an electronic fund transfer on or after one year prior to the date of filing the complaint in this case and twenty days thereafter.
