A settlement has been reaching for the lawsuit against Alltel Corporation for improperly charging for early termination fees. If you paid an early termination fee to Alltel, you could be eligible for compensation from the class action settlement.
The plaintiff claims he did not sign any contract that would impose an early termination fee of $200. Alltel refused to provide him with copies of the contract so that he could have a view of the terms.
The Alltel class action lawsuit alleged Alltel’s fee violated the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. Alltel denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to give refunds to customers under the terms of the class action settlement. You are eligible for compensation if you paid Alltel’s early termination fee from Feb. 15, 2001 through Nov. 10, 2014. An award of $70 per line will be given for compensation.
