LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A Florida man alleges a docking kit he purchased to use with his Nintendo Switch caused the console to become inoperable.
Michael Skiathitis filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated on April 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Nyko Technologies Inc. alleging violation of the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the defendant manufactures portable docking kits for the Nintendo Switch. The plaintiff alleges he purchased one of the defendant's kits in 2017 and after connecting it, his Switch became inoperable due to defects with the kit.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant's kit can cause damage to Switch consoles, cause the game console to stop recharging or other problems.
The plaintiff holds Nyko Technologies Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to notify consumers of the nature and extent of the problems with the docking kits and provide adequate remedy.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant; award all actual, general, special, incidental, statutory, punitive and consequential damages; restitution; interest; attorneys’ fees; costs; and further relief that the court deems appropriate. He is represented by David C. Wright of McCune Wright Arevalo LLP in Ontario, California and Joseph G. Sauder, Matthew D. Schelkopf and Joseph B. Kenney of Sauder Schelkopf LLC in Berwyn, Pennsylvania.
