Lawsuit Against Comcast's Deceptive Service Protection Plans & Fees Moves Forward

Apparently Comcast's attempt to have this lawsuit thrown out has failed. Now that Comcast is being forced to face the music in court, it's possible that other states could follow Washington's lead and file suits as well.

In a one-page ruling [PDF] issued just as everyone was heading out for the long weekend, a King County (WA) Superior Court judge denied Comcast’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit brought by Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson. "The court correctly rejected Comcast’s attempt to evade responsibility for deceiving its customers," said Ferguson in an emailed statement. "Washington consumers deserve their day in court."
