(Leitchfield, KY) – A local attorney announced to the Leitchfield City Council Monday evening that he is in the preliminary stages of possibly filing a class action suit against AT&T.
Lawyer Anthony Cash, Hardin Law Office, was contacted by Leitchfield Citizen Manuela Mattingly, to look into filing a suit, due to the poor service provided to the Grayson County area, which Cash thinks may be in breach of the contract between the consumers and AT&T.
Mattingly accompanied Cash at the meeting and spoke about her dissatisfaction with her service with AT&T.
Mayor William Thomason said he has continued to work with the cellular phone company but didn’t have any new answers for the public.
The city is no longer under contract with AT&T, according to City Clerk Erin Embry, who made the announcement in a previous meeting. The city is paying on a month-to-month basis for the employee cell phones using AT&T service.
During past multiple meetings, Councilman Billy Dallas has requested the city acquire a quote from Bluegrass Cellular. Clerk Embry said she finally received the “apples-to-apples” quote from Bluegrass Cellular and it was much higher than what the city is paying for their AT&T service, appoximately $189/mo. higher.
Cash said he is looking for an electronic means for people to file their complaints about the cell phone provider so he can compile them and “get the ball rolling.”
Cash offered to speak with the city if they were interested in discussing the matter and said any citizens can find him at 90 Public Square in Leitchfield.
The council nor Mayor did not give any comment concerning their interest in the class action suit.
