On February 8, 1999, BC Tel agreed to a resolution of the Windbiel v. BC Tel class action. This class action was brought by our firm on behalf of all persons who returned rental phones to BC Tel but who continued to be charged.
BC Tel agreed to repay all telephone rental charges paid after the telephones were returned, plus interest. This complete repayment was made available even if the affected people had previously received a shorter credit from BC Tel. The result was a complete recovery for the class. There was no reduction for legal fees as BC Tel agreed to pay our firm's legal fees directly.
