Canon Inkjet Printer Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
- Provides info on the Canon Inkjet Printer Litigation
- Case # 2:14-cv-32-35-LDW-SIL
- Claim form is due no later than 12/7/15
This settlement concerns defendant Canon USA and the allegations that the company knowingly sold printers containing defective print heads. Plaintiffs assert that these print-head issues commonly resulted in a “UO52 —Print Head Error” message, which prevented the printer from functioning properly. Various plaintiffs filed multiple lawsuits, which were consolidated into a single lawsuit. The court has not ruled for or against Canon, and they maintain that their printers are not defective whatsoever. On 12/4/15, a court hearing will be held to determine whether to grant final approval of the settlement. Those who wish to opt out of the settlement must submit their intent to exclude themselves in writing to the Claims Administrator no later than 11/24/15.
