Note 7 class action lawsuit dismissed, ambulance chasers planning an appeal
by Daniel Petrov / Aug 11, 2017, 8:06 AM
Back until this past April, Samsung was still offering an exchange program for its fiery Note 7 phablet, refunding those who returned their handsets, or offering replacements like the S7 edge plus some extra change. Fair and square, one would think. Needless to say, though, some folks got organized in a class action lawsuit against Samsung, claiming that its refund or replace program was not enough to compensate for the inconvenience of visiting a service center on their own dime and time.
deactivation or repurposing of 4.3 million Note 7 units, and a tenth of them were sold in the home turf of Korea, where the Harvest Law Office thought they'd found a gold mine, and organized the former owners in a class action lawsuit.They were searching for a grand total of 935 million won (US$815,000) in compensation, but the court struck down that path on August 9, ruling in favor Samsung's actions, deeming them sufficient for a mass recall. Samsung had to deal with the return,
"We are planning to appeal the court’s decision," reacted a lawyer from the legal shop, though, given the first strike, the court may not budge, or the eventual moral damages awarded could be much smaller. Oh, well, now all eyes are on the Note 8 anyway, it seems, and Samsung has a lot riding on it now.

Well maybe Samsung shouldn't have rushed a faulty product to the shelves.

Exactly. Samsung did what any other company has done when they recall a product. They gave an option. you are entitled to a 100% refund and they offered a replacement where you can choose any Samsung or any phone. Anytime you have a defective product, just like you spent money and time and gas to go buy it, you have to do the same to return it. These people are full of crap. They plan to appeal? Why? The decision will be the same. So question...are these same people gonna file a class action against the court, saying they didn't do enough and they need to be refunded money they spent on lawyers and time and gas?

That's not an eclipse later this month, it's the Note 8 putting every other phone in its shadow.
