Case Name

Matthews, et al. v. TCL Communication Inc., et al.,
Case No: 3:17-cv-00095
District Court for the Western District of North Carolina

Case Summary

A lawsuit was filed in federal court in North Carolina, captioned Matthews, et al. v. TCL Communication, Inc. et al., Case No. 3:17-cv-95 (W.D.N.C.), which alleges that Defendants marketed, warranted and sold Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch smartphones as possessing compatibility with LTE Band 12, a frequency on which mobile phones operate for high speed communication. Plaintiffs further contended that Defendants removed LTE Band compatibility from all OneTouch Idol 3 Smartphones in a software update, greatly reducing the functionality of the OneTouch Idol 3 Smartphones. Plaintiffs assert legal claims on behalf of themselves and all members of the “Settlement Class,” defined in Question 3. Those claims include claims that Defendants violated the North Carolina Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act, the Kentucky Consumer Protection Act, and breached express and implied warranties to purchasers of the OneTouch Idol 3 Smartphones. Alcatel denies these claims, as well as any wrongdoing in the sale, distribution or marketing of the OneTouch Idol 3 Smartphones.
