LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) — An Oregon man has filed a class action lawsuit against a drone manufacturer, alleging unfair competition.
Christopher Lee filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of other members of the general public similarly situated, June 2 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against World Tech Toys Inc. and Does 1-10, alleging they made false claims regarding the warranty of their drone products.
According to the complaint, Lee was damaged from being misled into buying a drone product for $192.05 that was falsely advertised. The plaintiff alleges the defendants advertised their drone's warranty despite having no intention of honoring their warranty after one of the legs of Lee's drone broke off.
Lee seeks trial by jury, order World Tech Toys to engage in a corrective advertising, actual damages, punitive damages, statutory enhanced damages, attorney fees, pre- and post-judgment interest and all other relief the court grants. He is represented by attorneys Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon, Meghan E. George and Thomas E. Wheeler of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills, California.
U.S. District Court for the Central District of California case number 8:17-cv-00955-DOC-JDE
