Peck/Bowden v. Cingular / Riensche v. Cingular


Our clients in these cases sued on behalf of all Washington customers of Cingular Wireless, challenging its practice of adding a “B and O Surcharge” to the advertised monthly price of service, in violation of Washington law. The trial court dismissed all claims based on federal preemption, but the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed. The trial court then dismissed again on the merits, and the case is again pending before the Ninth Circuit.
