Class Action Notice for AT&T Residential Wireline Long Distance Customer
First remember this notice if for a very limited number of customers. If you were an AT&T residential wireline long distance customer in California who paid a Universal Service Fund Charge between August 1, 2001 and March 31, 2003 you may be entitled to a class settlement. From the statement on the class website http://usfjudgment.com/index.html a settlement could be as low as $5.00 per valid claim or as high as $1,000 per valid claim. The total award will depend on the number of claims submitted.
If you are a class member and object to the settlement you can still send an objection until March 18, 2011. It should be mailed to:
United States District Court for the District of Kansas
United States Courthouse
500 State Avenue
Kansas City, Kansas 66101
If you believe you are entitled to benefit under the settlement you must submit a claim form via mail by April 29, 2011. You will need to know your AT&T phone number from the time period and will either need to provide a copy of your bill from the period showing you paid the fee or sign and submit an attestation stating you no longer have the relevant billing records but personally paid AT&T charges during the class period.
UCAN was not involved in this lawsuit, but wanted to let our friends here in California know about the claim opportunity.
