About this Case
A blogger who alleges she was deprived of earnings from her online content filed this class action lawsuit in King County Superior Court against Newsvine, Inc., a Seattle-based company and part of Comcast Corporation, a media empire with holdings in cable networks and communications, broadcast television, film, and more. Newsvine operates Newsvine.com, a web-based news and information site where bloggers post original content or content from other sources for discussion. Until recently, Newsvine bloggers earned 90 percent of ad revenues their content generated. But just around the time Comcast was completing its acquisition of Newsvine’s parent, NBCUniversal, the blogger alleges Newsvine retroactively terminated the ad earnings arrangement and refused to pay bloggers the earnings they had accrued. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of lead plaintiff Kathleen Wilkes, alleges breach of contract, violation of Washington State’s Consumer Protection Act, conversion, unjust enrichment and breach of an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing.
This case settled in February 2015. All eligible claimants have been issued checks.
