C&T FILES FIRST AMENDED CLASS ACTION COMPLAINT RELATED TO ALLEGED “BOOTLOOP” DEFECT IN CERTAIN LG PHONES
On March 23, 2017, C&T and its co-counsel filed a first amended class action complaint against LG Electronics USA Inc. and LG Electronics Mobilecomm U.S.A., Inc. alleging that LG G4, V10, and Nexus 5X smartphones suffer from a “bootloop” defect that arises without warning and renders the smartphones nonfunctional. According to the amended complaint, the alleged defect puts the phone into a death-spiral wherein it will be unresponsive, suddenly switch off, and then remain stuck on a start-up screen. C&T represents named plaintiffs from California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, New York, Texas, Utah, and Washington. The amended complaint seeks to represent a class of consumers who currently own an LG G4, V10, and Nexus 5X smartphone and/or who previously owned LG G4, V10, and Nexus 5X smartphone, and can be identified as having incurred out-of-pocket expenses related to the alleged bootloop defect.
This lawsuit is pending in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. A copy of the amended complaint can be viewed below.
