Defective Product

Owlet Smart Sock on Baby Plus Smartphone Monitoring Screen

The baby monitor that is at issue in this class action is not the traditional audio or video monitoring system that allows parents to see and hear their baby as it sleeps. It’s a sock that’s purportedly able to monitor heart rate and oxygen levels, made by Owlet Baby Care, Inc. But the complaint alleges that the sock gives false alarms and may sometimes burn babies’ feet.

Harley Davidson 2016 Touring Motorcycle

The complaint for this class action claims that the antilock braking system (ABS) on certain Harley-Davidson motorcycles was defective. This matters, the complaint says, not only because defective brakes are inherently dangerous but because Harley-Davidson prescribes opposite braking techniques, depending on whether the braking system is an ABS or not.

Cree LED Lightbulb

Cree, Inc. advertises its LED bulbs as being significantly long-lasting—up to 35,000 hours—and backs them with a ten-year warranty. Yet the complaint for this class action alleges that they actually have a much shorter life and do not live up to Cree’s claims. The complaint claims violations of New York’s General Business Law as well as fraudulent misrepresentation and concealment, among other things.

Home with Allura Siding

When you install fiber cement siding on your home, you expect it to last a good many years. The complaint for this class action brings suit against several related companies—Allura, Plycem, and Elementia—alleging that their fiber cement siding is defective. The complaint claims it is prone to cracking, chipping, flaking, breaking, and splitting, in as little as two years after installation.

In this class action, the weapons popularly known as tasers are called Conducted Electrical Weapons (CEWs). The complaint alleges that the Pulse, X2, and X26P model CEWs had a defective safety mechanism, which could allow the weapons to discharge unintentionally. The complaint claims that Axon Enterprises, Inc., formerly known as Taser International, Inc., knew about the defect.

Kumho KLT02e Tire

Between 2013 and 2016, Kumho Tire made “low rolling resistance” truck tires known as KLT02e. Unfortunately, the complaint for this class action alleges that the tires are defective and dangerous and do not perform as advertised. 

Louisville Slugger Prime 917 BBCOR Bat

Wilson Sporting Goods is settling a class action over its Prime BBCOR bats. It makes the bats with a patented TRU3 connection that allows a certain amount of movement between the barrel and the handle, but the complaint alleged that some of the bats had more than the amount of movement intended.

Can of Behr Marquee

Behr Process Corporation sells products it claims are “Paint & Primer in One,” but the complaint for this class action alleges that the products do not act as a primer, wasting the buyer’s time and effort or costing the buyer even more. The complaint claims violations of state laws on things like false advertising and breaches of warranties.

A Sig Sauer P320 Pistol

A gun that can fire a round when dropped has a serious defect. The complaint for this class action claims that Sig Sauer, Inc.’s SIG P320 semi-automatic pistol has this defect. This is alarming, given the gun’s popularity. The complaint alleges breaches of warranties and fraudulent concealment, among other things.

Exploded Washer

A settlement has been reached, in a class action about certain models of Samsung top-loading washing machines.
