Barker v. Skype

Unfair Consumer Practices

A settlement has been preliminary approved in a nationwide class action arising out of Skype Communications’ policy of expiring Skype Credits after non-use for a period of 180 days. Our client sued seeking recovery of Skype Credits that had expired under Skype’s policy. Pursuant to the settlement, Skype will make available a process for refunding previously expired Skype Credits. Additionally, Skype has agreed to change its policy of terminating Skype Credits. The lawsuit was brought in United States District Court for the Western District of Washington and settlement has been approved by Judge Ricardo Martinez.
