T-Mobile, FTC Working On Mobile Cramming Settlement
By Allison Grande (October 21, 2014, 8:16 PM EDT) -- T-Mobile USA Inc. and the Federal Trade Commission are closing in on an agreement to resolve the commission's allegations that the mobile carrier illegally profited from third-party charges, or cramming, on consumers' phone bills, the parties revealed in a request approved Tuesday to temporarily put the case on ice.
In their joint stipulation, the parties asked U.S. District Judge James L. Robart of the Western District of Washington to stay their dispute for 90 days while they continue to work toward a resolution of the allegations, which the commission filed in July after settlement talks with T-Mobile fell apart.
