C&T Files Class Action Related to Alleged “Bootloop” Defect in Certain LG Phones

On February 8, 2017, C&T and its co-counsel filed a putative class action lawsuit LG Electronics USA Inc. and LG Electronics Mobilecomm U.S.A., Inc. in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. The lawsuit alleges that LG V10 smart phones suffer from a “bootloop” defect that arises without warning. According to the complaint, the alleged defect puts the phone into a death-spiral wherein it will be unresponsive, suddenly switch off, and then remain stuck on LG’s “Life’s Good” screen. The complaint seeks to represent a class of consumers who currently own an LG V10 phone and/or who previously owned LG V10 Phone, and can be identified as having incurred out-of-pocket expenses related to the alleged bootloop defect.

C&T will be filing an amended complaint on or before March 23, 2017. A copy of the initial complaint can be viewed below.
