Law firm Piper Alderman announced on Tuesday it would go ahead with the long-mooted class action after it secured funding from Litigation Fund LCM to sue the telco.
This class action is going to take a long time to play out and there are no guarantees for consumers that they will receive compensation if it goes to court - our fears are that this will turn into a lawyer's picnic.Sasha Ivantsoff, a partner with the law firm, said it planned to launch the action in the next three months after emailing 23,000 Vodafone customers who completed a survey and indicated their intention to join the class action.

The Australian legal system under it's general policy favours corporate fraud committed against the masses.
The Australian consumer watchdog the ACCC should have been taking Vodafone to the courts.
Any puny sums won in the class action law suite would be an insult.
The corporate media make it sound like an exorbitant amount of money the 'tens of millions', to the 443,00 unsatisfied customers.
Meanwhile lawyers charge 'funny money' to appear in court.
Another win for the legal system and not for the peasants.
