July 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Verizon New Jersey Inc. for allegedly misrepresenting that customers in New Jersey need to lease equipment – such as set-top boxes, digital adapters, and CableCARD devices – from Verizon for every television that will be used to access Verizon FiOS programming in the same household when, according to the complaint, customers may access FiOS on multiple televisions without leasing multiple pieces of equipment by using “technical equipment alternatives” (digital adapters, physical devices, and software programs that enable customers to access audio-visible content). The lawsuit was transferred to federal court in August 2017. (Struzynski et al v. Verizon New Jersey Inc. and Verizon Online LLC, Case No. 17-cv-6485, D. NJ.)
