Former judge sues Cox over cable box rental fees
PHOENIX — A former state Supreme Court judge is hoping to get what he believes is a little justice of his own for himself and other Arizona cable TV subscribers.
Stanley Feldman is asking a federal judge to ban the practice by Cox Communications of forcing those who are buying the company’s premium service to also rent a set-top converter box at an additional $6.99 a month. He charges through his attorneys that the practice is not just unfair and expensive but also violates federal law.
But the lawsuit seeks to do more than simply halt the practice. It asks Judge Hector Estrada to order the company to "disgorge the profits it has made from its wrongful and illegal conduct alleged.”
