Appgrinders Faces Consumer Fraud Class Action Lawsuit Over Autorenewals

- by

Santa Clara, CA: Appgrinders, a California-based software company, is facing an unfair business practices class action lawsuit alleging it charges customers' credit card to auto-renew a subscription to its products with consumers' permission.

Specifically, the lawsuit, filed by Jarrod Secola, individually and for others similarly situated, claims that Secola and others purchased access to online PDF editing software (PDF Buddy) from Appgrinders without being made aware of the firm' auto-renew policies.

The complaint further claims that Appgrinders not only failed to satisfy the law by providing clear, conspicuous disclosures about the subscription' auto-renewal policy, but also neglected to obtain the purchaser' consent before the auto-renewal charges were placed.

The lawsuit alleges violations of California' automatic renewal and unfair competition laws. Secola and other class members are represented by attorneys Scott J. Ferrell, Richard H. Hikida, David W. Reid and Victoria C. Knowles of Newport Trial Group in Newport Beach, California.

The case is US District Court for the Eastern District of California Case number 2:16-cv-01150-JAM-KJN.
