Apple Faces Class Action Lawsuit Over iTunes Double Billing

| News

A $1.29 over charge earned Apple a class action lawsuitRobert Herskowitz claims Apple double billed him for a US$1.29 song, then refused to refund the difference, so he filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of everyone that’s been double billed through the iTunes Store.

The iTunes Store allows for refunds when technical problems crop up, although in this case Apple apparently told Mr. Herskowitz that a refund wasn’t an option, according to GigaOM. His lawsuit cites California’s consumer protection laws and claims Apple’s action constituted a breach of contract.

Apple hasn’t responded yet to the lawsuit. Presumably top executives are looking under couch cushions for enough change to cover the extra $1.29 Mr. Herskowitz was charged.

Exactly - surely Apple wouldn’t be stupid enough to allow this to go to court, unless they are incontestably right and need to prove the principle ... if they double charged the man just refund him - heck refund him BOTH charges !!
