With technology advancing as quickly as it has over the past decade, small bugs are bound to be missed – and that’s OK. The real problem comes when companies try to sell their gadgets with glaring issues or defects while pretending like everything is fine. In the latest edition of our newsletter, we take a look at two recent class actions filed over troublesome tech issues. Plus, we’ve got the latest on a case filed over the Impossible Whopper and final settlement approval in the Equinox and Terrain litigation.
Mophie, Inc. is facing a class action lawsuit alleging that the mobile accessories maker made false and misleading statements regarding the battery capacity of its Juice Pack and Powerstation chargers. The case claims consumers may not be able to charge their devices as well as they were led to believe and may have paid more than they should have in the process. Portable chargers literally have one job to do – charge things – so it’s important to know how much juice your charger can put out. If you bought a portable charger from Mophie, find out more about the case and what you can do here.
A class action lawsuit filed against Lenovo over its Yoga laptops is alleging that the cable that connects the screen to the rest of the computer can easily fray or break when the devices are folded into tablet mode. Consumers who have had this happen have reported that the screens, as a result, can begin to flicker, freeze, black out, or stop working altogether. If successful, a class action lawsuit could help Lenovo Yoga owners get back some of the money they spent on the laptops or the cost of repairs. It could also force the company to fix the problem. If you are having issues with your Yoga 520 (also known as the Flex 5) or 730 laptop, this page has all the information you need.

Burger King’s popular plant-based version of the Whopper is under some scrutiny after a vegan from Georgia filed a proposed class action claiming that the fast food chain misled customers by grilling its Impossible Whopper on the same grills as traditional meat products. According to the lawsuit, Burger King makes no disclosures on its in-store or drive-thru menus that inform consumers prior to purchase that the Impossible Whopper is cooked in a manner that could cause it to be contaminated with meat by-product. For more details on the case, we have you covered.
It’s been a long road but we’re finally at the end of the Chevy Equinox/GMC Terrain saga. After putting the proposed deal on hold due to concerns raised by several objectors, a judge has given final approval to a settlement that ends the litigation. If you’re eligible to file a claim, you will more than likely receive a new, revised notice about the settlement in the mail, along with a claim form. If you’ve already opted out, you’ll have a chance to look over a new notice before you need to decide if you want to stick with that decision. We broke down the new deal and have all the details for you here.
