Welcome to the Horvath v. LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc.
THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
A class action settlement has been reached with LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc. ("LG") regarding an alleged defect in LG G2x mobile phones that plaintiffs claim could cause the phones to either (1) repeatedly freeze, shut down and power off randomly ("shutdown defect") or (2) bleed or leak backlight from the edges of the phones' screens ("screen bleed defect"). LG denies plaintiffs' claims and that it violated any laws. The notice summarizes the proposed settlement. Specific information is provided in the Settlement Agreement that is available for review on this website.
If the settlement is approved, each class member who submits a Claim Form will receive $19.00 so long as they verify they are a resident of the United States, purchased an LG G2x mobile phone between April 15, 2011 and October 30, 2013, notified LG or T-Mobile U.S., Inc. ("T-Mobile") about the shutdown defect or screen bleed defect, and continued to experience similar problems after making such notice. Purchasers of an LG G2x mobile phone who received multiple G2x replacement phones that experienced the same alleged defect are entitled to make multiple claims.
LG is providing these benefits to members of the class and is funding the settlement. T-Mobile is not a party to this lawsuit.
