LG’s “Energy Star” Certified Televisions

In September 2016, a class-action lawsuit was filed against LG Electronics U.S.A. for allegedly marketing its televisions as “energy efficient” and “Energy Star” certified when, in reality, the energy-saving features are automatically disabled when picture settings are changed, which is not adequately disclosed to consumers, causing them to incur additional charges on their electricity bills. (Munoz et al v. LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc., Case No. 16-cv-5546, N. D. CA.)
