LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) — Four consumers have filed a class action lawsuit against drone manufacturers, alleging fraud and negligent misrepresentation.
Allan Black, Christopher Jones, Roger Watts and Robert Matos Rivera filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, March 27 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Shenzen Sunshine Technology Development Ltd, Acumen Robot Intelligence Inc., Sam Tsu, doing business as Onagofly, and Does 1-100, alleging they misrepresented the actual technical specifications of their drone products.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs were misled into buying a drone that was advertised to feature a 15 megapixel Sony camera when the resolution of the camera is significantly lower. The plaintiffs allege the defendants deceived consumers into purchasing their drone by labeling it with false features.
The plaintiffs seek trial by jury, actual damages, restitution, disgorgement, punitive damages, court costs, interest and all further relief the court grants. They are represented by attorney Kirk J. Wolden of Carter Wolden Curtis in Sacramento, California.
