AT&T has been in more legal hot water than we can keep up with over the years. Much of these legal issues result from the company's business practices such as the class action suit that originated with AT&T billing practices.
AT&T has proposed a settlement to a class action suit relating to its business practices. The suit was filed over charges for mMode data service, ENH Discount International Dial, out-of-cycle billing, and the universal connectivity charge.
Class Action suit member who were customers after March 1, 1999 would be eligible under the proposed settlement for $8 for mMode, $10 for EDID, $8 for out of cycle billing, and $7 for UCC. That's not a lot of money and AT&T offers the settlement with no admission of wrongdoing.
