Allgeded Mislabeling of Hazelnut coffee results in class action lawsuit

  This is a class action brought on behalf of Plaintiff and a nationwide class of consumers who purchased certain New England Coffee Company coffees (“Coffees” or “Products”). Plaintiff purchased NECC’s Hazelnut Crème Coffee. The front of the package prominently described the coffee as Hazelnut Cream and indicated only that it was a medium blend with a rich nutty flavor leaving the Plaintiff and fellow consumers to reasonably believe that the coffee contained enough of its characterizing ingredient (i.e. hazelnut) to provide it with the promised flavor. In truth, however, the Hazelnut Crème Coffee contains none of its characterizing ingredient, and instead is both artificially and naturally flavored. 

Volvo named in class action lawsuit over defect in rdar satellite receiver

Defendant Volvo Cars of North America, LLC ("Volvo") builds cars with the ability to receive a satellite radio signal. Since at least 2008, all Volvo cars include this feature, which is useful only to car owners who subscribe to a third-party service that broadcasts radio content from a satellite.

Upon information and belief, there is a defect in the software for the satellite receiver--called an "rdar"--installed in Volvos whereby the device continues to search for a satellite signal even when the car is not running. This drains the car's battery when the car is not running, which in turn prevents the car owner from starting their car.

Volvo knows all about this defect, which is easily fixed with a "software upgrade" to the rdar. Volvo has not disclosed this defect to its customers, however Moreover. Volvo is effectively holding its customers hostage by refusing to install the "software upgrade" without a charge of hundreds of dollars to repair a defective device that is unnecessary for the car's safe operation and is, in many cases, simply unwanted.

This case seeks redress for the harm caused by Volvo's conduct towards its customers.
