Xbox LIVE Points Class Action Dismissed
Back in January, Siouxsie blogged about a new class action lawsuit against Microsoft. The case was widely reported by the mainstream media to be about Microsoft’s fraudulent use of its Xbox LIVE point system. Siouxsie pointed out that the complaint lacked any allegations to support such a claim. The complaint instead alleged only that Samuel Lassoff, the named plaintiff for the proposed class, never received complete downloads of games for which he had paid. Siouxsie also warned that Mr. Lassoff should not continue as both the named plaintiff and the attorney in the case.
Since then, the case has been removed to Washington state, Mr. Lassoff removed himself as named plaintiff, and three different amended complaints were filed to try to state a claim.
Recently, the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington denied Mr. Lassoff’s request to file a Fourth Amended Complaint and dismissed the case.
