Fenwick worked with content provider SendMe Mobile when it was named in a series of class action lawsuits asserting that charges for mobile content were “crammed” on telephone bills without authorization of the mobile phone user. The content included ring tones, news alerts and other applications. Twenty-four class action lawsuits were filed around the country against the carriers, distributors and content providers. The Fenwick team represented SendMe in the cases and, working with a large joint defense group, ultimately settled the cases on very favorable terms for SendMe.
The Fenwick litigation team was led by Rodger Cole and Songmee Connolly.
