STATEMENT BY ATTORNEY GENERAL SCHNEIDERMAN ON COURT WIN IN LAWSUIT AGAINST CHARTER-SPECTRUM 

NY Supreme Court Fully Rejects Charter-Spectrum’s Motion to Dismiss AG’s Lawsuit 

Last Year, AG Schneiderman Sued Charter-Spectrum for Promising Internet Speeds to NY Consumers It Could Not Deliver 

NEW YORK - New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman released the following statement upon a decision by the New York Supreme Court fully rejecting Charter-Spectrum’s motion to dismiss the Attorney General’s lawsuit:

“Today’s decision by the New York Supreme Court marks a major victory for New York consumers rejecting every single argument made by Charter-Spectrum in its attempts to block our lawsuit.

This decision ensures that our office can continue to hold Charter-Spectrum to account for its failure to deliver the reliable internet speeds it promised consumers.

The allegations in our lawsuit confirm what millions of New Yorkers have long suspected  Charter-Spectrum has been ripping you off, promising internet speeds it simply could not deliver.

The law requires internet service providers to tell consumers the truth. Our suit seeks much-needed relief for the millions of New Yorkers we allege have been cheated by Charter-Spectrum for far too long.

Now, we look forward to vindicating New York consumers in court as our case proceeds toward trial.
