Samsung Electronics America, Inc., et al., Case No. 11-CIV-6973 (SRC)(MAS), to represent a proposed nationwide class of persons who purchased mislabeled refrigerators from Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and Lowe's Companies, Inc.
The lawsuit alleges that Samsung and Lowe's misrepresented the energy efficiency of certain refrigerators by promoting them as ENERGY STAR-qualified and labeling them with the ENERGY STAR logo. In fact, the refrigerators do not meet the ENERGY STAR standards for energy efficiency and consume significantly more energy than the label states.
