Kabateck Brown Kellner LLP filed a class action lawsuit in Superior Court on December 18, 2014 against Bitcasa for its deceptive marketing practices and breach of contract. The plaintiff, Henry Yeh is an engineer in San Francisco who claims he was duped by Bitcasa’s savvy sales pitch offering infinite storage service for $79 a year. The lawsuit contends the company suddenly changed the terms of its agreement, significantly raising the cost of services to $999 a year and gave its customers only 3 weeks to retrieve their data or risk losing everything. Yeh says in a frantic rush to save his data, he lost valuable and irreplaceable videos, photos and projects because much of the data became corrupted in the migration process.
Bitcasa was founded by venture capitalists from Samsung. Kabateck Brown Kellner represents Yeh and any California consumer who was a subscriber to Bitcasa’s unlimited storage plan.
