On April 10, 2019, Girard Sharp LLP and its co-counsel filed a motion seeking approval of a proposed $9.75 million settlement of a class action lawsuit against Google and Huawei concerning the Nexus 6P smartphone.
The plaintiffs allege the Nexus 6P is defective and can experience one or both of two severe problems: “bootloop” and “battery drain.” The alleged “bootloop” problem causes the Nexus 6P to freeze or reboot at random, sometimes in an endless cycle resulting in product failure. The alleged “battery drain” problem causes noticeably reduced battery life, or sudden shut off even when the battery icon shows the phone is charged.
The case, entitled In re Nexus 6P Product Liability Litigation, is pending before U.S. District Judge Beth Labson Freeman in San Jose, California. A hearing is scheduled for May 2, 2019 to determine whether to grant preliminary approval to the settlement, approve notice to the proposed class of Nexus 6P purchasers, and schedule a final approval hearing.
The settlement would benefit a class comprised of all persons in the United States who purchased a Nexus 6P smartphone, other than for resale, between September 29, 2015 and the date of preliminary approval. Because the settlement has not yet received preliminary approval, the claims period has not begun.
