Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith LLP (CSK&D) Appointed Interim Co-Lead Counsel, Files Amended Complaint in Subaru Starlink Litigation

CSK&D, along with its co-counsel, was appointed interim co-lead counsel by the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey in this case. The consumers represented by CSK&D have also filed a Consolidated Amended Complaint against defendants Subaru of America, Inc. and Fuji Heavy Industries, Ltd. The Amended Complaint alleges that the “Starlink” infotainment system in certain Subarus suffer from technical glitches that cause it to freeze, become non-responsive, or otherwise malfunction. The Starlink system is a touchscreen multimedia and video interface that, when working properly, provides the visual for the backup camera, and controls the audio and radio system, cell phone connectivity, weather information, the navigation system, and more.  Plaintiffs seek to represent a nationwide class (and several alternative state-wide classes) of owners and lessees of the 2018 Subaru Outback, 2018 Subaru Legacy, 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, 2017-2018 Subaru Imprezas, and 2018 Subaru BRZ.
