Energy Efficiency of LG Televisions

In March 2017, a class-action lawsuit was filed against LG Electronics for allegedly misrepresenting the energy efficiency of televisions. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the company places the ENERGYGUIDE label and ENERGY STAR® logo on its televisions to indicate that they meet the ENERGY STAR® standards for energy efficiency when, in reality, the televisions are programmed to disable energy-saving features when consumers adjust the default picture settings. (Munoz et al v. LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc., Case No. 17-cv-1176, N. D. CA.)
