Judge denies Comcast’s motion to limit class action suit

Judge Stefan Underhill voided a class action waiver clause in Comcast’s contract, ruling that it would make litigation too costly for plaintiffs

A judge denied Comcast Corp.’s motion to limit an antitrust class action suit by forcing the plaintiff to bring his claims in arbitration.

Comcast customer Robert Fromer brought the suit in December 2009, after the company allegedly bundled digital voice service with a modem, forcing subscribers to pay a rental fee for the modem.
