Deceptive Advertising

Angie's List Super Service Award

Angie’s List offers consumers a list of local service providers (plumbers, carpenters, masseuses, etc). The beauty of Angie’s List is that it allows consumers who have already had experience with particular service providers to post unbiased and objective reviews about them. Consumers pay a monthly fee to get access to these reviews before hiring a service provider. This lawsuit alleges that Angie’s List violates consumer protection laws because, without notice to customers, it more prominently displays information for local service providers who have paid an advertising fee to Angie’s List.
