Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller & Shah, LLP ("SFMS"), along with co-counsel, filed a Class Action Consolidated Amended Complaint ("Amended Complaint") against LG Electronics USA, Inc. ("LG") on May 6, 2008 in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. The Amended Complaint is brought on behalf of consumers who purchased certain front-loading washing machines manufactured by LG. Specifically, the Amended Complaint alleges that the washing machines have an inherent design defect that, among other things, causes them to accumulate mold and mildew in the machine. Plaintiffs assert claims for violation of New Jersey's Consumer Fraud Act, various State consumer protection acts, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, breach of express and implied warranty and unjust enrichment under New Jersey law and the laws of various States of purchase.
