Proof of Purchase
Wanland & Associates, Inc. v. Nortel Networks Corporation, et al.Case No. 3:05-cv-01191-MLC-TJB.United States District Court for the District of New Jersey
This putative consumer fraud class action was filed over twelve years ago. The allegedly wrongful conduct that underlies this matter occurred fifteen years ago, in 2001. In essence, plaintiff Wanland & Associates (“Plaintiff”) has alleged that all defendants, as well as third party NorVergence, Inc. (“NorVergence”), defrauded numerous businesses by inducing them to enter into leases for “Matrix boxes” and other equipment in connection with the purchase of telecommunications services without disclosing that the leases purported to create an absolute obligation to pay regardless of whether services were actually rendered, and even though the value of the leased equipment was allegedly less than the lease price.
