BMW Faces Lawsuit Over Quiet Door Close Injuries

BMW is facing a potential class action after a consumer’s finger was allegedly crushed in a car door due to the vehicles’ “soft close” door feature. The feature was designed to pull the door shut silently when it gets within a certain distance of the lock. The lawsuit claims that the system is defective because BMW didn’t install sensors that would tell the door something was in between it and the lock, allowing for objects (in this case, a finger) to get caught in the middle.

Wayfair Misled Customers with False Deals, Suit Claims

Wayfair has been hit with a lawsuit claiming that it knowingly deceived customers by fabricating its “original” and “regular” prices to make it seem like customers were finding great deals. According to the lawsuit, Wayfair never sells its products at their “regular” price, but instead invents a substantially higher value as a point of comparison for its “sale” prices. Plaintiffs state that the illusion of savings directly influenced their purchases at Wayfair and that they can no longer trust the company due to these advertising practices.

GM Accused of Underpaying Call Center Reps

General Motors is facing a lawsuit that claims the company violated the Fair Labor Standards Act when it forced its call center representatives to work off the clock and failed to pay them for that time. According to the lawsuit, call center reps are required to log in to specific programs before they can clock in for work – time they are never compensated for. This time adds up to almost 30 minutes per day since the process has to be repeated when the employees clock out as well.
