NY judge says Dell misled customers on financing, repairs
NEW YORK (AP) - A New York state judge says Dell Inc. engaged in
repeated false and deceptive advertising of its promotional credit
financing and warranty terms to consumers.
State Supreme Court Justice Joseph Teresi says New York Attorney
General Andrew Cuomo showed "many customers" are entitled to
restitution, but the record was insufficient to determine how much.
A call to Dell was not immediately returned Tuesday. When Cuomo
sued the computer maker last year, Dell spokesmen said the
company's conduct had been honorable, customers were its top
priority, and it had six million transactions in New York between
2003 and 2006.
Cuomo said in May 2007 his office had received 700 complaints
against Dell and they were still coming in.
