This isn't really major news to me... I represented an individual who placed an ad in a yellow pages.

His telephone provider actually directed the number that my client had in his ad to a COMPETITOR'S PHONE NUMBER (toll free line). We sued the telephone provider...

My research discovered that there are already a number of limitation of liability tariffs out there that prevent the average consumer from getting any other damages in these types of "negligence" cases, other than a refund for the costs of the service.

Ridiculous, if you ask me... and this client of mine ended up with a very paltry settlement as a result.

In this case, the Supreme Court is just keeping with business as usual for the phone companies.
