                   On or about September 17, 2008, Plaintiffs brought a lawsuit in California against DIRECTV captioned Amy Imburgia and Kathy Greiner v. DIRECTV, Inc., (Superior Court for the County of Los Angeles, Case No. BC398295). The lawsuit challenged DIRECTV’s early cancellation fees (ECFs) on behalf of California DIRECTV customers who were charged by and/or paid to DIRECTV such fees. The case progressed through a series of rulings and appeals over the years culminating in a ruling by the United States Supreme Court that the individual claims were subject to arbitration. DIRECTV, Inc. v. Imburgia, et al., 136 S. Ct. 463 (2015).

                   While the case was pending, the statute of limitations applying to any individual California putative class member’s claims covered by the lawsuit was tolled, meaning time was not running out. However, with the dismissal of the lawsuit on December 17, 2019, the tolling has expired, meaning that to the extent you had an ECF-related claim covered by the lawsuit, your statute of limitations has begun to run again from the date you incurred the ECF. If you wish to pursue such a claim against DIRECTV, you should initiate an arbitration proceeding under the arbitration rules specified in your DIRECTV Customer Agreement effective at the time you canceled your service and were assessed an ECF.
