The lawsuit Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, a class action firm that has already attacked Apple, filed a lawsuit against iMacs and MacBooks. Specifically, the company won the infamous case of setting the price of ebooks against $ 450 million against Apple. Since then, Hagens Berman has imposed further lawsuits on Apple, particularly with regard to limiting the performance of iPhones.
The latest lawsuit by Hagens Berman claims that MacBook and iMac models sold since 2013 are not equipped with the necessary dust filters. Essentially, while machines suck in air to cool components, the lack of filter means that dust is trapped inside. This eventually leads to black spots on the screen and performance issues when the dust gets stuck inside:
Owners of iMac and MacBook have reported spots and black spots inside the screens of their desktops, as well as excessive sluggishness and failures of their computers related to the lack of filter on Apple computers. The computer sucks in air to cool its components, but in the absence of filter, the dust is trapped inside. This affects the screen and the logic board of the computer, causing dust stuck behind the screen and erasing the motherboards, which slows down and / or overheats the computer.
Hagens Berman adds that "Apple refuses to remedy the defect", forcing the concerned customers to pay "more than $ 500 to repair this defect of the screen, and more still they wish to replace components essential to the speed and the performance of the computer ".
The class action hopes to see Apple refund the affected users the costs associated with repairing the defect, as well as the loss of use of their computer.
We believe that Apple owes buyers of these high-end computers to pay for the widespread default, and we try to represent the owners of iMac so that they recover their losses in repair costs from this defect or for loss of use of their computer. .
Hagens Berman represents plaintiffs Kim Ahern, Nikolas Frenzel and Justin Evans, and the firm is actively recruiting new Apple users.
