Class Action to Recover Cellular Phone Fee — $48 million recovery for a statewide Illinois class of businesses and individuals who paid a municipal infrastructure maintenance fee on their cellular phone bills. Through litigation, the Illinois Supreme Court declared the fee to be unconstitutional, and we obtained refunds for cell phone customers from the Illinois municipalities that imposed the fee. In addition to having a plaintiff’s class of cell phone customers certified by the court, we also convinced the court to certify a defendant’s class of Illinois municipalities.
