A class action lawsuit has been brought against AT&T and Nokia. They are being sued by a group that claims AT&T retailer CommClub sold reconditioned, used, and refurbished Nokia phones as brand new products. The lawsuit originally named all three parties and was filed in Los Angeles, but was recently moved to the federal level. Neither AT&T nor Nokia commented.

Heres what I see happening.

AT&T will deny knowing anything about it (if they really did at all), strip said companies license and call it a day. 😛

Nice editting

Complete failure to mention 1/3 of the parties involved in the lawsuit. Great job once again.

Yep. Eric really isn't the best at accurately reporting events. He should look at getting a job with C...

Why both?

Since AT&T is named as a defendant, I'm assuming that this was done in AT&T stores. But why is Nokia being sued too? Is there evidence that it was also complicit in this scheme? It's pretty easy for a phone to be returned and then repackaged as something new for another customer without the manufacturer ever being aware of it. Unless this was ONLY being done with Nokia phones...then I can understand.
This was actually done at an Indirect dealer called CommClub if you read the article at the attached link, not an AT&T corporate store. So I don't see how AT&T or Nokia could be at fault.
