    HOUSTON, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Williams Kherkher Hart Boundas, LLP,
 announced today that it has filed a class action lawsuit against online
 auction site eBay. The suit was filed on behalf of eBay customers whose
 auctions did not start when their listing was submitted, and paid for but
 did not receive the full duration of auction time that they selected.
     "eBay has been deceiving millions of consumers over the years by
 claiming their auctions start when submitted, when in reality they do not
 begin for at least several hours, and up to 24 hours," said John Fabry, the
 Williams Kherkher attorney who is leading the litigation. "However, the
 clock starts running on your selected auction time even though eBay hasn't
 posted it yet."
     The suit focuses on violations of various provisions of California
 statutes intended to protect consumers, as well as common law. The suit
 seeks injunctive relief and damages for the class. It is estimated that
 there are millions of eBay consumers that have been affected by eBay's
 course of conduct.
     Williams Kherkher is committed to vigorously prosecuting this suit.
