SquareTrade Lawsuit Amended Complaint

Gibbs Law Group filed this lawsuit against SquareTrade on April 20, 2020. The complaint describes SquareTrade’s sale of protection plans for products sold at retailers, including Sam’s Club, and Costco. When a consumer purchases a product, like a backpack or a television, the consumer can also purchase a protection plan from SquareTrade, as described in the lawsuit. For a flat fee, as alleged, SquareTrade promises replacement, reimbursement, or repair in the event of damage during a fixed time period.

However, we alleged that SquareTrade does not pay consumers the full amount to which they are entitled when they make a reimbursement claim. Instead, we alleged, SquareTrade pays out only a portion of the purchase price promised under the protection plan.
