Lawyers behind the late-fee class-action lawsuit against Redbox have launched a Web site to locate additional plaintiffs and offer education about the case.
At the site www.RedboxLateFees.com, people can figure out if they are eligible to join the suit. There also will be regularly posted updates about the case and other related news items relating to Redbox.
The lawsuit alleges that Redbox unfairly dings customers $1 for every day past the paid one-night rental that the DVD is not returned to machines. It notes that Redbox touts a ‘No Late Fees’ policy.
In particular, the suit cries foul that the $25 charged for titles kept more than 24 days is more than triple Redbox’s used-DVD sales price and amounts to unfair business practices.
At the time of the suit’s filing, Redbox said that it didn’t comment on pending litigation.
