Facebook sued by Sacramento law firm

Facebook and Zynga, a company that allows users to play games on Facebook and other social networking sites are being sued by the firm of Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff for misleading advertising promoted by these companies in a Federal class action filed in the Northern District of California.  Last week, the Kershaw law firm signalled that likelihood of this suit.

One of the plaintiff’s in the case, Rebecca Swift, says she was repeatedly charged $9.99 after she divulged her cell to a Zynga advertiser, and she was the hit with $165.85 even after she attempted to terminate a “trial offer” of green tea products.
