Zeldes & Haeggquist, LLP is proud to announce the settlement of a nationwide consumer class action against Apple, Inc. You may be able to participate in this settlement which has both a cash refund component and a replacement program, so please take a moment to review the following. Zeldes & Haeggquist has been appointed class counsel in this case. Plaintiffs brought this case on behalf of a proposed nationwide class of Apple MacBook & MacBook Pro owners. Plaintiffs allege that the “MagSafe” adapter, the power cord which comes with the MacBook and MacBook Pro computers, is defectively designed and manufactured. These alleged defects may cause the cable of the adapter to fray, spark, overheat, melt, cease functioning and occasionally catch fire. Apple disputes these claims.
In September 2011 the federal court in the Northern District of California granted preliminary approval of a proposed settlement of this case. Please consult this website for more information on how you can file a claim, and additional information about the settlement. You can call the claims administrator at 888-332-0277. You also can call us for more information.
The settlement will provide cash payment for purchasers of MagSafe adapters that meet certain requirements, and it will also provide replacement adapters at no charge. The current deadline to submit a claim is March 21, 2012.
