Court allows class-action lawsuit against Bell Mobility
The suit is over the expiry of prepaid cell phone minutes
0 0

The Ontario Superior Court of Justice has ruled to allow a class-action lawsuit against Bell Mobility in relation to prepaid cell phone minutes.

Celia Sankar, who is leading the suit, alleges that Bell breached its contract by imposing an expiry date on her remaining minutes. She launched the $100-million suit in 2012 and it includes more than a million plaintiffs.

The suit argues that prepaid plans should be covered under provincial gift card regulations, which say there can be no expiry date.

Bell, Newstalk 1010's parent company, says it cannot comment on a case that is in front of the courts.

The class-action includes prepaid customers of Bell Mobility, Virgin, and Solo, between May 2010 and December 2013.
