Entire Verizon Corporation Served With Arrest Warrant After Failing To Pay Lawsuit Judgment
from the sounds-difficult dept
This must be the week that everyone who gets frustrated at the cable and phone companies tries to get their revenge. First, Comcast was fined $12,281.84 by a county in Maryland for its poor customer service. Then there was the story of a 19-year old running out of his house buck naked, threatening an AT&T repairman with a shotgun, before landing in a mental health facility. And now comes word that a judge issued an arrest warrant (via Broadband Reports) for the entire Verizon corporation after it failed to pay on a lawsuit it lost in small claims court. The company had been sued by a customer who claimed that Verizon double billed him, ruined his credit and failed to fix the mistake. Fortunately, Verizon has now paid the customer, putting off the difficult question of how you go about arresting an entire company.
