PHILADELPHIA — Non-profit corporation Keystone Warriors is suing GoDaddy Inc. and GoDaddy.Com LLC, citing alleged breach of contract.
Keystone Warriors filed a complaint June 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, claiming that GoDaddy violated the Stored Communications Act and the Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff has obtained domain and email services from GoDaddy since 2011. However, Keystone Warriors alleges that, beginning in 2016, it was charged for services that were not authorized and needed. In addition, the plaintiff said its emails were allegedly deleted and could not be retrieved.
The plaintiff said GoDaddy failed to take adequate steps to prevent an unauthorized third party from hacking into the emails and deleting them without authorization and failed and refused to fix the issue, despite repeated requests.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment for damages in an amount in excess of $50,000, exclusive of interest and costs and attorneys' fees. It is represented by David Crossett of Cornestone Law Firm LLC in Blandon, Pennsylvania.
