Filing Lawsuits to Fight Consumer Fraud
If you have experienced consumer fraud, you are likely not the only victim. Our experienced class action attorneys in Los Angeles can help the victims of consumer fraud work together to hold fraudulent companies accountable. Termed a “class action,” this type of lawsuit is filed by one or more individuals who act as representatives for a larger group of people that the same business has defrauded in the same way. Members of the class do not need to participate in the lawsuit to recover damages. Once certified by the court, such a lawsuit may proceed, and a class member is automatically a member unless they opt-out. If the case proceeds, one judge will hear all the complaints simultaneously. This will result in a joint resolution to the problem. By having a class of consumers with similar complaints, the evidence for a favorable resolution can be more substantial. The financial compensation for victims is often higher than if someone brought their case alone. Additionally, consumer class action litigation helps enforce California’s consumer protection laws that are essential to upholding all consumers’ rights and interests.
A consumer class action is a lawsuit where one or more consumers sue a business to redress the wrongs and harm caused by a company’s standard practice of violating consumer rights. Examples of consumer rights violations include false or misleading advertising, fraudulent or unfair business practices, and violations of privacy protection laws such as the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA). Consumer class actions serve an essential purpose because they provide a way for consumers to redress corporate wrongdoing where the monetary loss suffered by individual consumers is relatively small, in which case filing a separate lawsuit may be impractical, and to change business practices that harm other consumers.

One of the consumer class actions being handled by our firm is against a company that manufactures and sells vinyl record albums and its parent company which also sells the albums. This consumer class action is for consumers who purchased record albums from either company. The class action complaint alleges that these companies’ advertising was false and deceptive because the albums were not made directly from the original master recording. Instead, they were recorded using digital technology. The class action complaint seeks, among other things, the amounts consumers paid for these albums, plus interest.
One of the issues in the case is whether the company’s conduct constitutes a breach of express warranty. The complaint alleges that companies’ representations were an affirmation of fact or promise or a description relating to the Albums that were made to Plaintiff and the rest of members of each Class, that became and were made part of the basis of the bargain, i.e., the purchase of Albums, and created an express warranty under section 2-313 of the Uniform Commercial Code and section 2313 of the California Commercial Code that the Albums shall conform to the affirmation, promise, and description relating to the albums, and that the companies’ misrepresentations about the albums were a breach of that express warranty. Another issue in the case is whether the company violated Unfair Competition Law and Consumer Protection Laws.
