AT&T Court Date Just completed!
Court, the Lawyer representing AT&T from Nadler and Associates
(Birmingham) formally stated that I had in fact been drastically
overcharged and that is why AT&T had lowered my bill from $460 on my
subpoena to $37 (this after they
hounded me with collection agencies for two years). The AT&T Lawyer
said that they were no longer seeking $460 as they had filed for in
their subpoena to me, but $37 for my calls plus (roughly) $130 in legal
fees, a total of about $167.
The judge told me, based on
evidence presented, that I should pay AT&T $18, in total billing and
that I would not have to pay the Nadler legal fees, however, I would
still have to pay $98 in court fees along with the $18 to AT&T.
judge said that I should have filed a 'counter claim' as part of this
case (at no cost to me) so that she could consider damages to me for my
time, and harassment from collection agencies hired by AT&T etc. Not
being able to afford a Lawyer, sadly, I had not realized this was an
So now, I will file a civil suit against AT&T for
time spent dealing with an issue they have formally admitted was their
own fault for failing to give me proper information about their rates.
This will cost me a $98 filing fee and lawyer fees.
I have never experienced such unfair business practices.
