Relief is now available for those who were sexually abused as members of the Boy Scouts of America or any of its affiliates. As part of its bankruptcy proceedings, the organization has created a trust to pay claims filed by abuse survivors for the harm they suffered. Thankfully, these claims can be made regardless of the survivor’s age or location – and attorneys working with ClassAction.org are ready to help with the filing process. The deadline for filing a claim is set for November 16, 2020, so if you’re interested in moving forward, the time to act is now. Any information you divulge will be kept completely confidential and will not become part of any public record unless you choose otherwise. Here’s everything you need to know if you’re looking for help filing your claim.
Many of us have improved our cooking game as we continue to spend more and more time at home. But when a simple meal starts smoking and giving off that burnt “electrical” smell, it can be cause for alarm – especially when all you did was toss something in your Bosch microwave drawer. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are now investigating whether a defect in the product’s wave guide could be the cause and are trying to push forward a class action lawsuit on behalf of those who own the product. A successful lawsuit could help people get their money back for the microwaves, as well as the cost of repairs. It could also require the manufacturer to recall the appliance or otherwise notify consumers of the reported issue. If your Bosch microwave drawer caught fire, head on over to this page to learn more.

Drivers are reporting issues with their 2018 and 2019 Honda Odysseys, specifically that the vans experience sudden and unexpected shaking under completely normal circumstances – a phenomenon commonly referred to as “juddering.” In light of these complaints, attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether a defect in the vehicle’s ZF 9HP transmissions is the cause. Other symptoms of this transmission problem include hesitation when pressing the gas pedal, surging, and clunking or hard “downshifting.” Attorneys believe that the transmission issue creates a serious safety risk for those on the road and are looking to file a class action to help remedy the issue. A successful lawsuit could help drivers with repair costs or even force Honda to do something about the problem. If you experienced issues with your Odyssey transmission, voice your complaints and learn more about the investigation here.
If a product is advertised as waterproof, it shouldn’t have any issues when it gets wet – common sense, right? Well, according to a recently filed lawsuit, L’Oréal didn’t get that memo. The suit claims the cosmetic company’s line of Clarisonic face brushes are unusable due to a defect that causes them to fail completely when they are exposed to water in the shower or sink – you know, where they’re supposed to be used. L’Oréal does offer a free replacement as a part of its warranty, but there doesn’t seem to be much of a point as customers are allegedly sent a replacement that suffers the same fate as the original. The company itself even conceded that the devices, which sell for $99-$169, are not repairable and that the batteries are not replaceable. Want more details on the case? We have you covered.
