Lawyer Says LexisNexis Charges Sneaky Fees

•  Headline Legal News     updated  2009/07/24 09:11


Courthouse News reports that Reed Elsevier, which owns and operates the LesixNexis legal research site, charges subscribers extra fees for searches without warning them, an attorney claims in a federal class action. Andrew Dieden claims subscribers are not informed they must click the "My Lexis" tab before conducting a search, to avoid the extra charges.

Dieden says he logged on to LexisNexis believing his employment law searches were covered under his monthly subscription. But his credit card statements showed extra fees "that turned out to exceed many times the amount" of his subscription, simply because he did not click on the "My Lexis" tab before he began his searches, he says.

Dieden says a LexisNexis representative told him it might be able to reduce or eliminate the additional charges if he agreed to change from a monthly to an annual subscription. When he declined, he says, the company refused to drop the charges.

He seeks actual, statutory and general damages for breach of contract, fraud, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.
