Case Name

Jordan Kissel v. Code42 Software, Inc., et al.
Case No. 8:15-cv-01936

United States District Court for the Central District of California

Case Summary

The lawsuit claimed that Code42 did not comply with a California law that requires companies selling automatically renewing services to provide certain information to consumers. Specifically, Plaintiff alleges that Code42 failed to present its automatic renewal offer terms and/or continuous service offer terms “clearly and conspicuously” and in “visual proximity” “to the request for consent to the offer” in violation of California’s Business & Professions Code § 17602(a)(1). Plaintiff similarly alleges Code42 failed to obtain Plaintiff’s and the Class’s affirmative consent before the subscription was fulfilled in violation of Business & Professions Code §§ 17602(a)(1) and 17603, and failed to provide an acknowledgment with the automatic renewal offer terms and information regarding Defendant’s cancellation policy in violation of Business & Professions Code §§ 17602(a)(3) and 17602(b)(2). Code42 denied that it did anything wrong.
