A.G. UNDERWOOD ANNOUNCES VICTORY IN ONGOING LAWSUIT AGAINST CHARTER-SPECTRUM 

First Department Fully Rejects Charter-Spectrum’s Motion to Dismiss AG’s Lawsuit; Decision Affirms Victory in NY Supreme Court in February

AG’s Suit Alleges that Charter-Spectrum Promised Internet Speeds It Knew It Could Not Deliver

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Barbara D. Underwood released the following statement, upon a decision by the Appellate Division, First Department rejecting Charter-Spectrum’s motion to dismiss the Attorney General’s lawsuit:

“This decision affirms the basic principle that our office – and state attorneys general nationwide – can continue to protect consumers from fraud by their internet service providers. 

We look forward to moving our case forward and holding Charter and its predecessor Time Warner Cable accountable for promising New York consumers internet speeds they could not deliver.”

Last year, the New York Attorney General sued Charter-Spectrum. Earlier this year, the New York Supreme Court fully dismissed Charter-Spectrum’s motion to dismiss.
