The state Supreme Court has rejected Charter-Spectrum's motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed against the company by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

The AG sued Charter-Spectrum last year for allegedly promising internet speeds to New York consumers it could not deliver.

Schneiderman calls today's decision a major victory for New York consumers.

He says the decision ensures that his office can continue to hold Charter-Spectrum accountable for its failure to deliver the reliable internet speeds it promised consumers.

The allegations in our lawsuit confirm what millions of New Yorkers have long suspected — Charter-Spectrum has been ripping you off, promising internet speeds it simply could not deliver" said Schneiderman.  "The law requires internet service providers to tell consumers the truth. Our suit seeks much-needed relief for the millions of New Yorkers we allege have been cheated by Charter-Spectrum for far too long. Now, we look forward to vindicating New York consumers in court as our case proceeds toward trial.”
