In this issue, we’re starting off with an investigation into Ecovacs’ Deebot robot vacuums after reports of several issues have surfaced – from main brush malfunctions to complete system failure. Then, we’ll touch on the recent Enfamil formula settlement and how you can file a claim for compensation.
In a recent blog post, we revisited some of our readers’ most frequently asked questions when it comes to class actions settlements. And, to round things out, we’ll touch on two lawsuits filed over the seemingly empty promises Tesla has been making about its self-driving cars since at least 2016. Keep reading for the latest.
A vacuum that doesn’t work right sucks – or doesn’t, depending on what the problem is. Ecovacs Deebot owners, for one, have been reporting a handful of problems with their robot vacuums, including main brush malfunctions, sensor malfunctions, battery and charging problems, and complete system failure. Now, attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed. If filed and successful, a lawsuit could help consumers get some money back and potentially force the manufacturer to fix the problems consumers have been experiencing. If you’ve had issues with your Ecovacs Deebot vacuum, share your story with us here and you may be able to help get a lawsuit started.
If you bought Enfamil formula products over the past several years, you may be able to get some money back thanks to a recent class action settlement. Up to $8.4 million is available to those who file valid claims, and as part of the deal, manufacturer Mead Johnson will also make “lasting changes” to the way it labels the Enfamil products named in the lawsuit. Those covered by the settlement may be eligible to claim between $3 and $45 depending on whether they can provide valid proof of purchase. You only have until October 31 to get your piece of the settlement though, so be sure to get your claim in before then. You can find more information on the settlement, as well as a list of covered products over on our blog.

It’s been a while since we dug into some frequently asked questions from our readers, but in a new blog post, we’re back to answer more as best we can. While we aren’t attorneys ourselves, we can hopefully still shed some light on the seemingly complicated settlement process. We’ll touch on everything from what happens when you don’t file a claim to what you should do if your settlement check expires. So, if you’re interested in the settlement process, you’ve come to the right place. Head over to this page for our second round of answering your most frequently asked settlement questions.
We’ve been hearing about the prospect of self-driving cars for years at this point – from Tesla most of all. But, despite repeated promises that a fully self-driving vehicle is “on the cusp” of being to market, two recently filed lawsuits are alleging that these claims amount to nothing more than deceptive misrepresentations. The lawsuits state that Tesla has repeatedly indicated since as early as 2016 that their cars would be able to complete a fully self-driven cross-country trip by “next year.” Six years later, however, Tesla “has yet to produce anything even remotely approaching a fully self-driving car,” according to one of the cases.
