TrustPilot Is Sued In SNDY with Danish and Wells Scams Cited Now Motion to Dismiss

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 23 – TrustPilot has been sued for trapping small business customers into auto-enrolling for its services, which the complainant calls of limited value.

  In a complaint filed on Martin Luther King's Day in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, TrustPilot Damages LLC says that TrustPilot was enabled by Denmark's national investment fund, Vaekstfonden.  

 It cites and as examples in the scheme.  

It quotes investigations by BBC and The Times of London.

  On March 23, the case appeared before the assigned District Judge, Jed S. Rakoff, presiding for the prior weeks over the Eaze criminal trial.

 There was talk of doing class appropriate discovery, separately. No, Judge Rakoff said, he never permits such bifurcation.

On May 5, Judge Rakoff held another proceeding and Inner City Press again covered it. It concerned the defendant's motion to dismiss the second amended complaint. Things are moving fast, almost as fast as the auto-renewals at issue.

The case is TrustPilot Damages LLC v. TrustPilot Inc. et al., 21-cv-432 (Unassigned)
