Court certifies class action seeking compensation for Bell wireless customers
Oct 4, 2013 / 4:38 pm
TORONTO - An Ontario court has certified a class-action lawsuit against Bell Mobility alleging that expiry dates on its pre-paid wireless services should not be allowed.
The suit argues that the services should be treated like gift cards and not have an expiry date.
The decision Friday by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice allows the case, which has not been proven in court, to proceed.
The suit was filed on behalf of anyone in Ontario who had bought pre-paid wireless services since May 2010 from Bell Mobility, Virgin Mobile or Solo Mobile â€” all brands of Bell Canada (TSX:BCE).
Bell said it complies with the law and looks forward to addressing the case in court.
"Keep in mind that the threshold for class-action certification is quite low and doesn't address whether the claim has any merit," Bell spokeswoman Jacqueline Michelis said in a statement.
