Preliminary $1M Settlement Reached in Bell Canada Late Fees Class Action

This is a settlement for the Media/Telecom lawsuit.

Ottawa, ON: An out-of-court settlement has been concluded in the class action filed on behalf of Bell Canada and Bell Mobility's Ontario clients who may have paid late payment charges on payments made before the payment deadline provided on their bill.

This settlement affects Ontario Bell Canada clients who paid their bill through their financial institution, and Ontario Bell Mobility clients who paid their bill by cheque or through their financial institution, between March 26, 2008 and August 9, 2009.

The Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Ottawa district) will hear the Motion to Approve the Class Action Settlement on October 28th 2010.

The terms of the proposed settlement would see Bell pay roughly $1 million over a 17-month period, with an estimated $350,000 of those funds deposited with three charities in lieu of payments to people who are no longer customers or who can't be found and the rest will be credited to Bell customers.
