Class Action #22 against Apple was filed in San Jose California for Slowing iPhones by Misrepresentation and Deception

1 class action report -#22 filed in San Jose - Jan 2018  Patently Apple

 

John Solak has filed Class Action #22 against Apple for purposely slowing iPhones in the District Court of Northern California, San Jose. An additional four Class Action lawsuits are reportedly in-the-works in Canada, South Korea, Australia and France but are not official at this point in time.

 

In Mr. Solak's formal complaint before the court, he stated in his introductory commentary in-part that "Apple markets its iPhones as premium products with remarkably fast processors and epic performance. Each year, millions of American consumers bite—so many, in fact, that they have made Apple the most valuable company in the world.

 

Like every vendor, Apple has duties of truthfulness and candor to its customers. It also has the duty not to purposely degrade the performance of its customers' phones, and certainly not without their knowledge or permission.

 

Yet Apple has violated these duties by arrogating to itself the right to throttle the performance of millions of iPhones under at least three common conditions, such that its behavior will likely affect millions of consumers. What's more, Apple acted by misrepresentation and deception. Consumers did not know of, or consent, to Apple's decision to slow their devices.

 

Causes for Action

 

Count 1: TRESPASS TO CHATTELS

Count 2: VIOLATION OF CALIFORNIA'S UNFAIR COMPETITION LAW (CAL. BUS. & PROF. CODE § 17200, et seq.)

Count 3: FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION

Count 4: QUANTUM MERUIT TO RECOVER SUMS RECEIVED BY UNJUST ENRICHMENT
