Angie’s List Ratings and Rankings

November 2018: A federal judge dismissed this action concluding that some of the claims were barred by time limitations (such as the statute of limitations and laches) while the others failed to plausibly allege all of the elements of the claims.

September 2017: A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against Angie’s List. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Angie’s list deceptively represents that it publishes unedited and unfiltered commentaries and endorsements on its website and that its ratings and rankings of service providers are objective when, according to plaintiffs, Angie’s List manipulates the rankings (or order of appearance) of service providers based on consumer searches and in exchange for payments, which it allegedly hides from advertisers, members, and consumers. (Strauss d/b/a Classic Tree Care et al v. Angie’s List, Inc., Case No. 17-cv-2560, D. KS.)
