Herremans v. BMW of North America, LLCCivil Number: 14-cv-02363-GW-PJW District Court for the Central District of California
The operative complaint alleges that the original water pump in the Class Vehicles with thermo-plastic housing (MINI Part No. 11 51 7 550 484) is defective because it is prone to leaking and failure. The lawsuit asserts claims against the authorized United States distributor of MINI vehicles, BMW of North America, LLC (“MINI”) for (1) violation of California Civil Code § 1750 et seq. (“CLRA”), (2) violation of California Business & Professions Code § 17200 et seq. (“UCL”), and (3) for fraud.
MINI has expressly denied and continues to deny all charges of wrongdoing or liability against it arising out of the allegations and claims asserted in the lawsuit, including that the Class Vehicles or their water pumps are defective. MINI has vigorously resisted the lawsuit’s allegations and claims and has asserted and continues to assert defenses to those claims.
