CLASS-ACTION SUIT AGAINST TWC: The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER's Eriq Gardner noted in an "amended class action, a group of plaintiffs demand” that Time Warner Cable “reimburse them" for more than $5M in service fees and charges for withholding programming during the carriage dispute with MSG. The named plaintiff is Harold Hoffman, “who says he was induced on the phone” by a TWC rep to sign up in ‘08 for service “with the promise he would receive programming on the MSG and MSG+ networks.” He signed up for TWC, “and when the games were taken off the air for 49 days beginning at the beginning of this year, he couldn't deduct from his billing statement the component of charges” for MSG and MSG+. The suit was filed on behalf of “all similarly situated individuals for redress” (HOLLYWOODREPORTER.com, 3/15).
