Samsung LED Televisions
October 2014: This case was transferred to a New Jersey court. (Case No. 14-cv-6356, D. NJ.)
February 2014: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Samsung for allegedly falsely advertising its televisions as “LED” when they are really LCD televisions. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the company’s “LED” labels misleadingly refer to the light source used to light the display panel instead of the display technology itself. (Rabinowitz et al. v. Samsung Electronics America, Inc., Case No. 14-cv-00801, N. D. CA.).
