John Lynch obtains $15,000,000 judgment for client in commercial case

John Lynch represents a provider of prepaid wireless voice and data services to consumers. He sued several of their client's competitors in federal court alleging a systematic scheme to deceive consumers by failing to provide them with the wireless minutes promised under various promotional programs in violation of the Lanham Act, the Illinois Uniform Deceptive Trade Practices Act, and the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act. In short, he alleged and ultimately proved that the defendants arbitrarily depleted prepaid accounts without the consumers' knowledge or permission. On April 27, 2010, he obtained a judgment against the defendants in the amount of $15,340,089.70, including both enhanced and punitive damages, and obtained a permanent injunction against them as well.
