AT&T Mobility Wireless Data Services Sales Tax Litigation.
After being appointed as lead class counsel by the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Bartimus Frickleton Robertson & Goza negotiated the settlement of one of the largest consumer class-action cases in U.S. history. Our firm represented a nationwide class of AT&T Mobility customers against AT&T Mobility in a case claiming that the telecommunications giant had improperly charged sales tax on internet access service. A settlement was reached in record time and refund requests totaling more than a billion dollars are being pursued with more than a thousand taxing jurisdictions across the country. Our aggressive but cooperative approach to this litigation resulted in an excellent solution for all parties.

Bartimus Frickleton Robertson & Goza also recently achieved a class action settlement with AT&T Mobility that resulted in a return to the nationwide class of over $157 million of Federal Universal Services fees that had been mistakenly collected by AT&T for their cellphone customers. The settlement resulted in the class being awarded one hundred percent of the overcharged funds.
