In May 2016, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against LG Electronics and Best Buy for allegedly falsely labeling LED televisions as having refresh rates (i.e., the number of unique images displayed per second) of “120Hz” or “240Hz” when the televisions’ refresh rates are really 60Hz and 120Hz, respectively. (Hudock et al v. LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc., Best Buy Co., Inc., et al
, Case No. 16-cv-1220, D. MN.)
