Enerson v. Verizon
A settlement has been reached with Verizon New Jersey Inc. (“Verizon NJ”) in a class action lawsuit, alleging that Verizon NJ improperly charged customers for the installation of certain network interface jacks (which is the jack on the wall into which you plug your phone) when such charges should only have been imposed if a customer specifically requested that jack, and no other billable work was performed at the same time. Verizon NJ denies all of the claims alleged in the lawsuit. The Court has not decided who is right. Instead, the parties have agreed to settle the case.
