LOS ANGELES — A Florida man is suing a power bank manufacturer, alleging the products did not have the energy as was advertised.
Michael Young, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a class action complaint May 2 in U.S. District Court of the Central District of California against Mophie Inc., alleging breach of express warranty and unjust enrichment.
Young says in 2018 he purchased a Juice Pack manufactured by Mophie that said it had 2950 mAh capacity and was allegedly compatible with a Samsung Galaxy Note8 phone. The suit says Young believed that the product contained the power advertised but, in reality, the Juice Pack bank did not deliver that much power, causing the plaintiff to suffer by purchasing a product that was falsely advertised.
Young seeks trial by jury, monetary relief, injunctive relief, statutory damages, attorney fees, court costs and all other appropriate relieft. He is represented by attorneys Nathan M. Smith and Nona Yegazarian of Brown, Neri, Smith & Khan LLP, in Los Angeles, D. Greg Blankinship and Sara K. Bonaiuto of Finkelstein, Blankinship, Frei-Pearson & Garber LLP in White Plains, New York, and E. Michelle Drake and Joseph C. Hashmall of Berger Montague PC in Minneapolis.
