LOS ANGELES – A class-action suit has been filed against LG Electronics by a Paso Robles man over allegations its V10 phone is defective.
Oscar Herrera filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Feb. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against LG Electronics USA Inc.; LG Electronics Mobilecomm USA Inc. and Does 1 to 10 alleging violation of the Unfair Competition Law, the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, fraud by concealment and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages from purchasing a V10 smartphone that has a "bootloop" defect. The plaintiff holds LG Electronics USA Inc.; LG Electronics Mobilecomm USA Inc. and Does 1 to 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly had knowledge of the defects of their smartphone but refused to repair the defect free of charge.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual, general, special, incidental, statutory, punitive and consequential damages; interest; order the defendants to repair, recall, and replace the allegedly defective smartphones; all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Brian S. Kabateck, Drew R. Ferrandini and Lina B. Melidonian of Kabateck Brown Kellner LLP in Los Angeles.
