In April 2016, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Samsung for allegedly falsely marketing televisions as LED when, in reality, the televisions are LCD televisions that use light emitting diodes (LEDs) to light the liquid crystal display (LCD) panel. In other words, the complaint claims the LED labels refer to the light source instead of the display technology. (Nance et al v. Samsung Electronics America, Inc.
, Case No. 16-cv-704, C. D. CA.)
