LG Front-Loading Washing Machine Class Action Lawsuit

In November of 2007, Giskan Solotaroff Anderson & Stewart filed a class action lawsuit against LG Electronics USA, Inc ("LG"), on behalf of all customers who have purchased LG front-loading washing machines that have exhibited mold or mildew under normal use.

As set forth in the complaint, lead Plaintiff alleges, on behalf of a class of similarly-situated consumers, that LG sold washing machines that it knew or should have known were defective and unreliable.

The class action complaint specifically seeks:

(1) to enjoin LG from continuing its deceptive and unlawful business practices;

(2) to require LG to repair or replace the defective washing machines; and,

(3) the disgorgement of all profits accrued as a result of LG's sale of these defective machines.

The Plaintiffs have requested that the court certify state-wide classes of all consumers who purchased an LG front load washer from August 1, 2003 through December 31, 2007 in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin. The Court has not yet decided whether to certify the proposed state-wide classes.
