The Firm was one of six law firms nationwide representing Plaintiffs in a mass class action suit against Epson. Plaintiffs alleged that Epson printer cartridges were defined by printer software as being empty when, in fact, they contained a substantial amount of ink and could continue to print. A settlement was approved by the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles on August 15, 2006. Over 10 million class members were entitled to receive a $45 credit for purchases of additional ink and other products from the Epson internet store. Registered printer owners received the $45 credit automatically and other class members were eligible to register their printers and receive the automatic credit.
