BENTON — A consumer filed a class action against two warranty companies over their extended service plans.
Amy Jett, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on July 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois against Warrantech Corporation and AMT Warranty Corporation, alleging they violated the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff purchased an LG refrigerator from H.H. Gregg along with an extended service plan from defendants. Soon thereafter, the refrigerator became inoperable within the five years covered by the warranty, the complaint states. The plaintiff alleges the defendants allegedly refused to pay for the repair or replace the purchased items.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order certifying the class. She seeks actual and exemplary damages. She is represented by William M. Sweetnam of Sweetnam LLC in Chicago.
