Monster Inc. has been hit with a proposed class action in California federal court over its M7 tablet computers. According to the suit, the tablets failed to properly charge and were quick to break down – despite Monster’s claims of high-quality performance. The plaintiff claims that Monster misrepresented their product and, in turn, deceived its customers into buying a faulty product that the company refuses to fix.
Uber has agreed to pay $28.5 million to settle a proposed class action that claimed it deceived customers by promoting the quality of background checks it had done on its drivers. According to the suit, Uber charged a “safe ride fee” that it claimed funded high-quality background checks – but, it was found that the amount collected from the fee exceeded the amount Uber spent on safety programs. As part of the settlement, Uber is changing the way it advertises its hiring process and renaming the “safe ride fee” to a “booking fee.”
Several outlet stores (including Anne Taylor, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger) were hit with proposed class actions claiming that they misrepresented their sale prices by providing false actual market prices for comparison. The complaints claim that these practices directly violate the Federal Trade Commission Act and request that the retailers be barred from promoting false discounts.
Cleveland Cavaliers basketball was hit with a proposed class action over claims that it continued to send text messages to fans after they had opted out of the service.

The suit is looking to stop the Cavaliers from sending unwanted text messages and to compensate those affected.
Johnson & Johnson is set to pay $13.5 million as a part of a verdict in a case that claimed it sold pelvic mesh implants that were not practically safe. The lawsuit claimed that the plaintiff suffered from constant pain and discomfort due to the allegedly faulty product. The jury agreed with statements that the plaintiff’s physician would not have used or recommended the product if he was aware of its risks.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention released a report on Wednesday that says the high-formaldehyde flooring sold by Lumber Liquidators may cause health problems. There has been speculation regarding the health issues caused by LL flooring since the 60 Minutes broadcast last year, but the CDC report gives us some actual info about the potential risks. According to the report, the risk of cancer is low – but there is potential for the flooring to cause difficulty breathing and irritation.
Kroger Co. has been hit with a proposed class action claiming that it failed to pay its in-house recruiters proper overtime wages. According to the lawsuit, Kroger violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by intentionally misclassifying its recruiters as exempt. Class certification in this case would allow plaintiffs to seek compensation for themselves and close to 200 other recruiters.
