Jun 25 15
United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on June 23, 2015 affirmed that the Song-Beverly Credit Card Act does not apply to the plaintiff's online purchases and concluded that the district court properly granted the motion to dismiss the plaintiff's complaint. Plaintiff, Michael Ambers, filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of Buy.com customers who made credit card purchases and were required to provide a telephone number on the Buy.com website at the United States District Court, Central District of California Southern Division, on February 5, 2013. The plaintiff claims collecting a phone number in a customer credit card transaction violates the Song-Beverly Credit Card Act. On April 30, 2013, the court granted the motion to dismiss by Buy.com. On October 25, 2013, Michael Ambers filed an appeal with the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, seeking for the reversal of the court order of the first instance that had dismissed his complaint.
