North Dakota Supreme Court Rules ISP Can Be Probed

Kara Reeder

According to an Associated Press article on Newsvine.com, the North Dakota Supreme Court has ruled that Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem may continue a probe into the marketing practices of Simple.net Inc.

 

Simple.net had maintained that it could not be investigated due to a settlement between the company and the Federal Trade Commission.

 

Stenehjem says he has received complaints that the ISP was sending out incentive checks in a misleading sales pitch. Cashing the checks caused customers to get billed almost $20 a month for Internet services.
