Washington State is suing Comcast for $100 million for an alleged “a pattern of deceptive practices.”

The office of Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson said that its lawsuit “accuses Comcast of engaging in a pattern of deceptive practices constituting more than 1.8 million individual violations of the Washington Consumer Protection Act.”

These violations impacted about 500,000 consumers in Washington, according to the AG.

Comcast(CCV) said in a statement to CNNMoney that it was “surprised” by the suit.

“Given that we were committed to continue working collaboratively with the Attorney General’s office, we’re surprised and disappointed that they have instead chosen litigation. We stand behind our products and services and will vigorously defend ourselves,” Comcast’s spokeswoman Jenni Moyer said.

Comcast Corporation is a cable, entertainment and communications company that’s divided into two primary businesses: Comcast Cable and NBCUniversal.
