May 2016: The named plaintiff voluntarily dismissed this action without prejudice. The reasons for the dismissal have not yet been disclosed. (Landau et al v. Viridian Energy PA, LLC, Case No. 16-cv-1938, E. D. PA.)
Later in May, the same named plaintiff filed another class-action lawsuit making similar allegations. Specifically, the May complaint alleges that the company deceptively promises consumers who switch to Viridian Energy for their energy supplier will pay competitive market-based rates and save on their electric bills when, according to the plaintiffs, consumers who switch may pay in excess of 50% more for electricity. (Landau et al v. Viridian Energy PA, LLC, Case No. 16-cv-2383, E. D. PA.)
April 2016: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Viridian Energy for allegedly misleadingly promising customers who switch to Viridian energy for their energy supplier competitive market-based rates and savings on electric bills when, in reality, customers who switch may pay in excess of 50% more for electricity. (Landau et al v. Viridian Energy PA, LLC, Case No. 16-cv-1938, E. D. PA.)
