There has been no action since January in a proposed class action over the late fees charged by the owner of RedBox video rental kiosks commonly found at grocery and other stores.

The last action in the suit led by lead plaintiff Laurie Piechur came in late January when attorney Jeffrey Millar joined the plaintiffs' team.

Piechur proposes to lead a class of Redbox customers who allege the company violated the law in charging excessive late fees.

The suit seeks damages in excess of $350,000 and other relief.

The case has not been certified to date.

Redbox has been unsuccessful in its attempt to have the case dismissed.

Redbox denies the suit's claims.

If certified, Piechur would lead a class with members in Illinois, California, Wisconsin and other states.

Millar joins Thomas and Peter Maag and others in representing Piechur.

Eric Brandfonbrener and Robert Sprague represent Redbox.

The case is St. Clair case number 09-L-562.
