- Logan Lades and James Goddard v. Sony Mobile Communications (U.S.A.), Inc. and Sony Electronics, Inc.
- Case No. 2:17-cv-2264-JFB-SIL
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York
Class members of the Sony Water Intrusion class action lawsuit claim that the defense, Sony, misrepresented its devices as “waterproof”. Filings revolve around the believed violation of different consumer protection acts and other statutes. Logan Landes and James Goddard began the process in January 2016 and officially filed a class action complaint against Sony in April 2017. Plaintiffs sees nationwide reimbursements for the numerous advertising and marketing issues. Sony denies all allegations, but has agreed to a settlement which has been approved by the court.
Extended claim conditions may jeopardize some claims, but Sony agrees to provide warranty extensions, changes to packaging and advertising, and claim processes to previous water-related incidents. Warranties will be extended an additional 12 months for devices whose warranty was in effect at the date of the preliminary approval order, and six months for devices whose warranty was no longer in effect. Packaging and labels will be reissued within 90 days of the preliminary approval. Eligible class members who appear in Sony record a 50% of MSRP for applicable devices. Those not in Sony records will undergo a separate approval process before receiving the same compensation.
Involved class members will be represented by Nancy A. Kulesa and Shannon L. Hopkins (Levi & Korsinsky LLP).
