Bell Mobility again denied bid to overturn 911 class-action lawsuit
Things are not looking good for Bell Mobility. The company just lost its second consecutive bid in an attempt to overturn the Supreme Court of Canada’s ruling.
The ruling stated that Bell must pay millions to residents in the Northwest Territories, the Yukon and Nunavut. In case you don’t know, the dispute is over a 911 class-action lawsuit. Bell Mobility will have to refund residents for charging them 911 fees when the service is unavailable in these regions. The company is fighting this claim and says it’s an invalid and unfair argument. They claim that a 911 call may be answered by a recorded message instead, but the court begs to differ.
The Court apparently refused to listen to Bell’s side of the story denied them an appeal. It’s still unclear how much compensation Bell will be charged, but previous reports estimated $3-$5 million.
