Oswego County is joining six other upstate counties in a class action lawsuit against major telecommunications providers alleged to have withheld surcharge payments from municipalities, amounting to a “multi-billion-dollar” deficit.
The lawsuit, filed on May 1, alleges the companies failed to pay counties legally mandated reimbursement funds that offset the high costs of emergency response services.
The county Legislature’s Public Safety Committee Monday voted unanimously in favor of joining the class action lawsuit, represented by New York City law firm Napoli Shkolnik, PLLC.
