Default Find that old Dell s: 1100, 1150, 5100, 5150. Class Action suit looks good.

There was a class action suit settlement for the Inspiron 1100, 1150, 5100, 5150 in the states few years ago, I called concerning the same problems with my own 5150 but they refused to do anything about it since I reside in Canada. Well, it looks like Rochon Genova have filed a successful class action suit against them and now it's pending Dells possible appeal. It wouldn't make sense for them not to appeal, given the American judgment; so call the firm up and put in your name.

Imaging...I was using it as a book end for years

DELL CLASS ACTION IS CERTIFIED Feb42009

TORONTO
February 32009 – In a judgment released todayJustice Joan Lax of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice certified a national class action on behalf of Canadians who own the following Dell Inspiron notebooks1100115051005150 or 5160.  The Court also denied a motion brought by Dell to dismiss the class action and require individuals with these Dell notebooks to arbitrate any dispute they have with Dell about defective performance of these models.  The case was commenced by the law firm of Rochon Genova LLP in Toronto.

The class action seeks compensation from Dell Canada Incarising from alleged defects in these Dell notebooks affecting some 120,000 Canadian consumers

In the judgmentJustice Lax decided that an earlier Supreme Court of Canada decision which arose in Quebec and involved Dell Canada did not change the law in Ontario or British Columbia.   Consumers may still proceed with defective product class proceedings even if the contract with the manufacturer contains an arbitration clause.  In so decidingJustice Lax considered whether individual arbitrations would be preferable to a single class proceeding and decided in favour of a class proceeding.  Click here to review the decision of Justice Lax.

This decision is significant as it delineates the scope of the previous decision of the Supreme Court of Canada outside Quebec.  Joel PRochoncounsel for the class stated“This decision protects the rights of Canadians to seek compensation through a class action for defective goods even in the face of an arbitration clause”.  The decision builds on other recent decisions in Ontario and British Columbia regarding the enforceability of arbitration clauses“This is a significant development for class actions”he said.

The allegations raised in the claim have not yet been proven in court.  The plaintiff and the class members are represented by the firm of Rochon Genova LLP.  For more informationplease contact:
