LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A consumer alleges he purchased a printer that did not come with a feature that was advertised.
Robin Sergi filed a complaint on behalf of the general public similarly situated on Dec. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against HP Inc. alleging violation of the Unfair Competition Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages from being misled into purchasing a falsely advertised product. The plaintiff holds HP Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly claims that its printers come equipped with HP Smart Install when in fact this feature was already disabled.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks order the defendant to notify all class members, engage in corrective advertising, actual damages, full restitution, punitive damages, statutory enhanced damages, all legal fees plus interest and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills, California.
