AT&T, DC AG settle overcharging lawsuit for $1.5 million

AT&T will pay $1.5 million to settle allegations that it overcharged the District of Columbia and government entities for wireless voice and data services. The Office of the Attorney General for the District of Columbia alleged that AT&T overcharged District taxpayers millions of dollars by failing to comply with its long-term contract for cell phone and Internet services, including submitting false invoices and billing for add-ons and other services outside of the contract. 

“My office filed suit against AT&T to ensure that it fulfilled its contractual obligation to provide the District government with the least expensive cell phone and data services available,” said AG Racine. “We are pleased that after filing suit, AT&T immediately sought to resolve the case in a manner that results in making the District and its taxpayers whole.”
