SAN DIEGO — A California consumer is suing Hewlett Packard, alleging misleading and false advertising.
Anthony Fehrenbach filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all other members of the general public similarly situated, Sept. 12 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Hewlett Packard Company, alleging violation of the California False Advertising Act and the Unfair Business Practices Act.
According to the complaint, Fehernbach suffered substantial financial injury for paying for the HP Smart Install feature that doesn't work. The plaintiff alleges Hewlett Packard misrepresented and falsely advertised that the HP Smart Install feature would be installed automatically via the Internet and profited from both the sale of the HP Laserjet printer and the HP Smart Install feature.
Fehernbach seeks trial by jury, an order certifying this case as a class action and appointing the plaintiff and his counsel as class representatives, compensation for actual damages, punitive damages, attorney fees and court costs, pre- and post-judgment interest and all other relief to which he is justly entitled. He is represented by attorneys Todd. M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of the Law Offices of Todd. M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills, California.
