Bird Marella Obtains Denial of Class Certification for Samsung

After briefing and oral argument in the defense of Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC, Bird Marella attorneys David Hurwitz and Ekwan Rhow successfully secured an order denying the plaintiff’s motion for class certification. The plaintiff filed her complaint in the federal district court in Santa Ana, alleging six causes of action relating to an alleged defect in Samsung’s first generation “Galaxy S” smart phones, and sought to certify a class of California purchasers of such phones from 2010 to the present.

This marks the 4th consecutive class action win for Bird Marella, having previously obtained victories on behalf of Forever 21, Hyundai, and Xerox.
