BYOD gets messy with AT&T class action lawsuit
How much can "Bring Your Own Device" smartphones cost? Some companies embroiled in a class action lawsuit against AT&T Mobility stand to lose out on thousands of dollars because they can’t participate in a $153 million settlement, says a source knowledgeable about the lawsuit.
Earlier this year, AT&T Mobility denied all actions of wrongdoing but agreed to settle a class action lawsuit alleging the company overcharged millions of customers from January 2004 to December 2010. Brought by MBA Surety Agency, the class action lawsuit is in the jurisdiction of the Circuit Court for the City of St. Louis, Missouri.
Here’s the interesting part: Some companies that jumped on the BYOD bandwagon prior to 2010 are losing out on more than $100,000. By letting employees transfer a corporate-liable smartphone to a personal-liable one, companies gave up their right to be part of the settlement, says the source.
