“We are pleased that the Court has granted preliminary approval of the Class Action Settlement and that class members are closer to receiving the significant benefits the Settlement provides,” said Jordan L. Chaikin, a Partner at Parker Waichman LLP.

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of consumers, announces that a Settlement has been reached with Lenovo (United States) Inc. over certain Lenovo brand Ultrabook computers containing a design defect that impacted the Wi-Fi performance of the computers. On September 15, 2014, the Court entered an Amended Order Granting Plaintiffs’ Motion for Preliminary Approval of the Class Action Settlement and also appointed Parker Waichman LLP as Class Counsel along with co-counsel. The case is Garrett Kacsuta, et al. v. Lenovo (United States) Inc., Case Number 8:13-cv-00316, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California; co-counsel are Kiesel Law LLP; Paradis Law Group, PLLC; and Whitfield Bryson & Mason, LLP.

U.S. District Court Judge Cormac J. Carney ruled that the proposed settlement was “sufficiently fair and adequate” to warrant preliminary approval and distribution of the notice to the potential class members.

Plaintiffs allege that Lenovo knowingly sold defective Lenovo Ideapad U310 and U410 “U Series” computers that were marketed as “ideal for any and all mobile needs.” According to the lawsuit, however, the alleged design defect of these Lenovo products severely limited the ability of the devices to either connect to, or attain, Wi-Fi networks with speeds and ranges needed to engage in mobile computing. The Plaintiffs allege that Lenovo’s conduct violated a number of acts and laws including the California Consumers Legal Remedies Act, the Unfair Competition Law, and the District of Columbia Consumer Protection and Procedures. Breach of express warranty and breach of implied warranty of merchantability were also cited in the lawsuit. (Garrett Kacsuta, et al. v. Lenovo (United States) Inc., Case Number 8:13-cv-00316, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California)

Parker Waichman LLP urges all persons who purchased a Lenovo Ideapad® model U310 or U410 Ultrabook computer in the United States to visit the Lenovo Laptop Wi-Fi Settlement website for more information about the terms of the Settlement, to view court documents and to submit an online claim form.

The Final Fairness Hearing is scheduled for December 15, 2014. (Garrett Kacsuta, et al. v. Lenovo (United States) Inc., Case Number 8:13-cv-00316, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California)
