False Advertising Class Action Against Hewlett Packard Company

If you are one of the many consumers who purchased a Hewlett Packard (HP) P1102 printer from 2014 to present that falsely advertised the “Smart Install Feature” (SIF), you could obtain compensation in a class action claim against the company.

At the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, we have handled many similar class action claims protecting consumer rights. Our lawyers have a wealth of experience and understand how to win at the highest levels. If you are part of this class of consumers, talk with us right away to get involved with this claim.

About The Claim

This class action claim is being brought against HP for false advertising. Many customers chose to purchase various HP printers over other printers because of the written claim by HP that these printers were equipped with its “Smart Install Feature” (SIF), technology that allows for quick startup of the printers to interface with the computer with no drivers or installs of any kind.

The problem, of course, is that HP had disabled the SIF months before it stopped advertising the feature, so many consumers purchased this product on the SIF feature as advertised, only to discover that this feature did not exist on the product.

Due to these issues, our law firm has brought a lawsuit against HP for false advertising in violation of the Consumer Legal Remedies Act.

To give this claim the strength it needs, we have petitioned for class certification in order to bring this claim on behalf of anyone who has suffered the same damages as Anne Wolf.

Class Certification: Granted

On Friday, September 9th of this year, the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California granted class certification for plaintiff Anne Wolf. In doing so, Judge Beverly O’Connell determined that we, the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C., would fairly and adequately represent the interests of a class of consumers who purchased a falsely advertised HP LaserJet P1102 printer in their action against Hewlett Packard Company.

This legal claim will proceed on behalf of:

  • Class 1: All consumers, who, between in or about April 2014, and the present, purchased one or more HP Laserjet P1102 printers at a physical, retail location in the state of California, and whose printer was advertised to include the HP Smart Install feature, but was in fact subject to HP’s disablement of the Smart Install Feature.

What Does This Mean For You?

If you are one of the people who bought an HP P1102 printer advertised to have the Smart Install Feature, but the product did not, in fact, contain this feature, you could obtain compensation.

HP Printer Models Subject To Smart Install Deactivation

Publically available information, including on HP’s website shows that the following models of printers were also affected by the Smart Install Deactivation. While the class action brought by Anne Wolf only involves the P1102 model of printer, if you purchased any of the following models of printers over the past several years, you may have been subjected to similar misleading advertising:
