APPROVED CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT

 HP OfficeJet Printers Dynamic Security Canadian Settlement

A Settlement has been reached with HP Canada Co. and Hewlett Packard (Canada) Co. (collectively “HP”) in a class action related to Dynamic Security, a technology HP incorporated in certain of its inkjet OfficeJet printers. The Plaintiff alleged that Dynamic Security caused printers to stop working if they were using certain non-HP replacement ink cartridges. Under the Settlement HP agrees to not reactivate Dynamic Security in the Class Printers and to pay a maximum of $700,000 CAD following the receipt of valid individual claims. HP denies that it did anything wrong. On January 21, 2019, the Superior Court of Quebec authorized the bringing of the national class action against HP for settlement purposes. On April 24, 2019, the Superior Court of Quebec approved the national settlement of the class action. WHO IS INCLUDED? You are a Class Member, and are included in the proposed Settlement, if you are a Canadian resident and owned a Class Printer between March 1, 2015 and December 31, 2017. The Class Printers are the following:
  • HP OfficeJet Pro 6230
  • HP OfficeJet 6812, 6815, 6820
  • HP OfficeJet Pro 6830, 6835, 8610, 8615, 8616, 8620, 8625, 8630
  • HP OfficeJet Pro X551dw, X451dn, X451dw, X576dw, X476dn, X476dw
  WHAT CAN I GET? To get compensation from the Settlement, you must be a Class Member who experienced a print interruption while using a non-HP replacement ink cartridge in a Class Printer between March 1, 2015 and December 31, 2017. You may get reimbursed for expenses you incurred as a result of the print interruption. If you provide documentation supporting your claim, these expenses may include the costs of a replacement cartridge, a replacement printer, or printing or printer repair services. You can also submit a claim for out-of-pocket losses, without providing any documentation, if you spent time or money in response to this print interruption. Documented claims for out-of-pocket losses resulting from such print interruptions will be paid first. If the sum of all documented claims does not exceed the Settlement CAP of $700,000, then undocumented claims will be paid up to a maximum compensation of $50 per claim.  However, if the sum of all undocumented claims at $50 per claim, when added to the sum of all documented claims, exceeds the Settlement CAP, the undocumented claims will be proportionally reduced—i.e., the actual amount of each undocumented claim will be reduced according to the percentage by which the value of all such claims exceeds the Settlement CAP.  All Claimants must timely submit a duly completed and valid claim form to be able to obtain any compensation. Only one (1) claim per civic address will be considered by the Claims Administrator. If the Claimant wishes to present more than one (1) claim per civic address, the Claimant must provide the serial numbers for the printers at issue, unless HP already has product registration records indicating more than one printer for the same Claimant or same civic address. Note: For all Claimants, and according to the Law, there will be an automatic deduction from said Quebec claims of the portion due to the Fonds d’aide aux actions collectives (the Quebec Class Action Assistance Fund).   HOW DO I SUBMIT A CLAIM? To get a compensation, you must submit a claim no later than June 28, 2019. You can submit a claim online at www.hpprinterfirmwarelawsuitcanada.ca. You can also submit a claim by email at [email protected] or by mail at Nelson P.O. Box 20187 – 322 Rideau Street, Ottawa ON K1N 5Y5.

and all persons in Canada who purchased third-party non-HP cartridges that were compatible with the HP Printers before September 13, 2016, whether for personal use or for resale and distribution to others (excluded are any such compatible third-party non-HP cartridges which have been fully used up and/or depleted without the printer rejecting said cartridge or displaying an error message); On or about September 13, 2016, many HP Printer owners in Canada started experiencing technical problems with their HP Printers. The said printers stopped recognizing and accepting third-party ink cartridges (i.e. ink cartridges which had not been manufactured by HP but which were compatible with the HP Printers before September 13, 2016) and sometimes displayed various error messages. This class action alleges that HP intentionally planned to program (through firmware update(s)) the rejection of all third party ink cartridges, including third party ink cartridge which had already been purchased and installed by HP Printer’s owners and which were already properly working in their printers until September 13, 2016, the whole without the knowledge or consent of HP’s customers. Accordingly, if you have purchased or own an HP Officejet Printer or if you purchased third-party non-HP cartridges that were compatible with the HP Officejet Printers before September 13, 2016, whether for personal use or for resale and distribution to others, then you may be part of the proposed Class defined by the class action initiated by our office.  Should you be defined as a member of the class, you may be entitled to compensation should the Court authorize and ultimately grant the class action on the merits, or should a settlement be reached (and approved by the Court). Please fill out the form below if you wish to be kept informed of the progress of this case. If you wish to be kept informed and/or receive notification of major judgments rendered or notices in this case, please complete the form below.  Please note that providing your information in the form below creates no financial obligation for you and it does not create a lawyer/client relationship between yourself and Lex Group Inc. (or any of its attorneys).  You will not be charged any fees or costs for signing up to this class action since our firm is only paid on a contingency basis from the potential compensation recovered in this file, if the class action is successful by way of final judgment or settlement approved by the Court. Please be advised that the group definition of the people to be included in this class action may be changed or modified in the future by Court decision or by way of amendment filed by our firm.  We will not inform you or other members of the public if and when the group definition is changed.  It is therefore your sole responsibility to ensure that your own personal rights and recourses are being protected at all times during the course of these proceedings.  You may therefore wish to seek independent legal counsel in order to determine whether it would be in your best interest to pursue independent litigation in this matter (or any other matter), and to determine if you can potentially be included in this case if a final judgment is rendered or if a settlement is reached and approved by the Court. By signing up to this class action, you are merely asking our firm to include you in our list of potential members in this class action but our firm is not agreeing to represent your personal interests.  If a final judgment is rendered in this case, or if a settlement is reached (and approved by the Court), an e-mail may be sent to you and the relevant information may be posted on this website.  The Court will determine the manner and extent of any future notifications to class members. Be advised that the information you provide will be included in our list of potential class members for this case, which list may be shared with and disclosed to the Courts and/or other parties in this action (at our discretion).  Rest assured that any such disclosure will be done in such a manner as to protect your personal information and confidentiality from unauthorized use, disclosure or publication. Finally, be advised that the above-description and summary of the case is being posted on this website for your convenience.  However, in case of conflict between the information on this website and the actual proceedings, documents, and/or judgments in the Court record of this case, the official Court record documents will prevail.  We have for your convenience posted on this webpage certain scanned copies of the several relevant documents from the Court record, including the initial motion to authorize the bringing of the class action which describes the case in much more detail.  You should therefore consult these documents as well as consult this website periodically in order to be kept informed.

Lex Group has launched a national class action on behalf of Canadians having purchased or leased a Porsche Cayenne Diesel, equipped with a 3.0 liter, and regarding the November 2, 2015 Notice of Violation issued by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (the “EPA”) indicating that Porsche had equipped the Porsche Cayenne Diesels with a  “defeat device” permitting the vehicle to trick mandatory emission tests, the whole without the knowledge or consent of its customers.  Accordingly, the actual amount of emissions/pollutants released into the environment by the Cayenne Diesel, when driving on actual roads, is apparently much higher than what Porsche had advertised and is apparently much higher than Canadian standards For more details, click here.

  _____________________________________________________________________ LEX GROUP Inc. has launched a national class action lawsuit against PORSCHE CARS CANADA, LTD., PORSCHE ENTERPRISES INCORPORATED, PORSCHE CARS NORTH AMERICA, INC. & PORSCHE AG (hereinafter collectively “Porsche”), on behalf of all Canadians who own or lease a Porsche Cayenne Diesel equipped with a 3.0 liter engine (hereinafter  the “Cayenne Diesel(s)”). Since late 2012 (with the introduction of the 2013 model), Porsche has boasted and advertised that its Porsche Cayenne Diesel was the “cleanest” Cayenne ever, as compared to the regular gas or hybrid models, regarding the levels of emissions released into the environment, and because of its low gas millage (i.e. reduced fuel costs).  Porsche charged substantial premiums for the Cayenne Diesel vehicles, as compared to the other Porsche Cayenne models. The class action alleges that Porsche has in fact leased and sold the Cayenne Diesels which were equipped with a “defeat device” permitting the vehicle to trick mandatory emission tests, the whole without the knowledge or consent of its customers.  Accordingly, the actual amount of emissions/pollutants released into the environment by the Cayenne Diesel, when driving on actual roads, is much higher than what Porsche had advertised and is much higher than Canadian standards. On November 2, 2015, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (the “EPA”) issued a Notice of Violation to Porsche in this regard, concerning the Porsche Cayenne Diesels.  The next day, Porsche announced that it would stop all North American sales of the Cayenne Diesel as a result of the EPA’s notice of violation. The owners or lessees of the Cayenne Diesel have and will suffer a significant decrease in value (and/or resell value) of their Cayenne Diesel in light of this discovery.  Furthermore, if and when Porsche recalls the Cayenne Diesels in order to render them in conformity with Canadian and/or U.S. emissions standards, the vehicles will no longer perform as advertised and this will also cost owners/lessees more in fuel for their now less efficient vehicles. In addition, the recalled vehicles will be worth less in the used (pre-owned) marketplace because of their decrease in performance and efficiency, which means owners/lessees will not be able to recoup the expected value of these vehicles in the future (which includes the over-inflated buy-back price set for lease holders in order to purchase their vehicle at the end of their lease). Accordingly, if you have purchased or leased a Porsche Cayenne Diesel in Canada, then you may be part of the proposed Class defined by the class action initiated by our office.  Should you be defined as a member of the class, you may be entitled to compensation should the Court authorize and ultimately grant the class action, or should a settlement be reached (and approved by the Court). Please fill out the form below if you wish to be kept informed of the progress of this case.

Lex Group has launched a national class action regarding the Toronto-Dominion Bank’s recent decision to unilaterally modify the Cardholder Agreements governing its various TD Travel VISA Credit Cards (and the associated TD Travel Rewards Program) in order to reduce the value of the Cardholders’ TD Points earned and accumulated before August 16, 2015. The TD Travel Credit Cards in question are the following: a)     the “TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card”; b)     the “TD Platinum Travel Visa Card”; c)     the “TD Classic Travel Visa Card”; d)     the “TD Business Travel Visa Card”. For more details, click here.

On October 27, 2016, the Superior Court of Quebec approved the settlement in this file.

A copy of the Settlement Approval Judgment is available on this page.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

July 21, 2016

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE ATTENTIVELY SINCE YOUR RIGHTS AND RECOURSES MAY BE AFFECTED BY A PROPOSED CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT

If you are a person in the Province of Quebec (Canada) who is a primary cardholder or an additional cardholder of one or more of the following TD Travel Cards:
  • “TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card”
  • “TD Platinum Travel Visa Card”
  • “TD Classic Travel Visa Card”
  • “TD Business Travel Visa Card”
(the “Putative Class Members”), your rights could be affected by a proposed class action settlement. On July 21, 2016, the Superior Court of Quebec authorized the class action for settlement purposes only concerning the Putative Class Members (the “Class Action”). The Parties have reached a settlement which is subject to the approval of the Court (the “Settlement Agreement”, a copy of which is available on this web page), without any admission of liability. The Superior Court of Quebec will hold a hearing on October 27th, 2016 at 9:00 AM, in room 15.07 of the Montréal Courthouse located at 1 Notre-Dame Street East in Montréal, to determine whether it will approve the Settlement Agreement. You may attend the hearing if you wish but you have no obligation to do so. If you agree with the proposed settlement and wish to be bound by said settlement, you have nothing at all to do.  

SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT SUMMARY

As per the Settlement Agreement, the Respondent agrees to maintain and apply the Redemption Value of 10,000 TD Points equal $50 in travel savings (or 200 TD Points equal $1 in travel savings) to an Eligible Account on a Book Any Way Travel Purchase (also known as “Other Travel Providers” hereinafter “Book Any Way Travel Purchase”) for an on-going period ending on August 31st, 2017 inclusively (the “Eligible Period”).  Until that date, you will be able to continue to redeem any TD Points you may have accumulated at said Redemption Value.  All existing terms and conditions of the TD Travel Rewards Program, detailing how and under what circumstances you may redeem TD Points, remain applicable. At the end of this Eligible Period, namely as of September 1st, 2017, the following New Redemption Value will apply to all Eligible Accounts for any remaining outstanding TD Points on your account, for Book Any Way Travel Purchases:  

TD Points Redeemed

on a Book Any Way Travel Purchase

New Redemption Value

-First 300,000 TD Points on a Book Any Way Travel Purchase

10,000 TD Points = $40 in travel savings or 250 TD Points = $1 in travel savings

-Next 300,000 or more TD Points on the same Book Any Way Travel Purchase

10,000 TD Points = $50 in travel savings or 200 TD Points = $1 in travel savings

You should therefore take note of this Eligible Period in order to be able to redeem your TD Points at the Redemption Value before September 1st, 2017 for Book Any Way Travel Purchases.  You have no obligation to redeem any TD Points before September 1st, 2017 but as mentioned, as of that date, all your accumulated TD Points will be subject to the New Redemption Value for Book Any Way Travel Purchases detailed in the table above. The Respondent also agrees to pay Petitioner’s Class Counsel the Class Counsel Fees as detailed in the Settlement Agreement.  These Class Counsel Fees will not affect your account. In consideration of the Settlement Agreement, the Respondent will receive from you and the other Putative Class Members a full release of any and all claims made in Petitioner’s Amended Application for Authorization of a Class Action.  

RIGHT OF EXCLUSION (Opt Out)

If you do not wish to be bound by this Class Action and Settlement Agreement, you must send, by no later than October 6th, 2016 (the “opt out deadline”), to the clerk of the Superior Court of Quebec a duly signed request of exclusion containing all of the following information:
  1. The name and Court docket number of this case, which is: Medalsy vs. The Toronto-Dominion Bank (500-06-000750-154);
  2. Your name, address, phone number(s) and email address(es) (if you have one), name of the TD Travel Card issued, account number, and the total balance of TD Points in your account (if known);

Should you opt-out you will therefore be solely responsible for ensuring and prosecuting your own rights and recourses at your own costs and within any applicable legal delays.

RIGHT TO OBJECT OR TO MAKE ARGUMENTS

WITH REGARD TO THE SETTLEMENT 

The Parties’ attorneys will make representations to the Court in support of the Settlement Agreement at the above mentioned settlement approval hearing. If you wish, you can also come to Court to present your arguments or objections (Right to Object) with regard to the Settlement Agreement.  You have no obligation to do so. To exercise your Right to Object, you must submit a signed objection notice on or before October 6th, 2016 at the latest. Your notice must briefly state your name, contact information, the reasons why you object, whether your intent is to be present in Court during the settlement approval hearing on October 27th, 2016, and if you intend to be represented by independent counsel (providing the name and contact information of said counsel if known). The objection notice must be sent to our firm by no later than October 6th, 2016.  However, if you agree with the proposed settlement and wish to be bound by said Settlement Agreement, you have no obligation to submit any notices whatsoever and you have no obligation to be present at the hearing. The complete terms of the Settlement Agreement and of the Notices to class members are available on this page. In case of discrepancies between this page and/or the Notices and the Settlement Agreement, the Settlement Agreement shall prevail.     ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ LEX GROUP Inc. has launched a national class action lawsuit against The Toronto-Dominion Bank (hereinafter “TD”), on behalf of all Canadians who, on August 16, 2015: – are/were a Primary Cardholder or Authorized User of one of the following TD Travel Credit Cards: a)     the “TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card”; b)     the “TD Platinum Travel Visa Card”; c)     the “TD Classic Travel Visa Card”; d)     the “TD Business Travel Visa Card”; (hereinafter collectively the “TD Travel Card(s)”); and –  had earned and accumulated (but not yet redeemed) TD Points on their said TD Travel Card;   The class action proceedings allege that in June/July 2015, TD decided to unilaterally modify the Cardholder Agreements governing the TD Travel Cards (and the TD Travel Rewards Program) in order to reduce the value of the Cardholders’ TD Points earned and accumulated before August 16, 2015. In this regard, before August 16, 2015, TD Points could be redeemed off the cost of Travel Purchases at a value of $50 for each 10,000 TD Points increments, or $1 for 200 TD Points. However, as of August 16, 2015, TD reduces the redemption value from $50 to 40$ for each 10,000 TD Points increments, when making Travel Purchases with third-party providers other than TD’s own “Expedia for TD” service. Accordingly, if you are a Primary Cardholder or an Authorized User of one of the above-listed TD Travel Cards, with TD Points accumulated before August 15, 2015, then you may be part of the proposed Class defined by the class action initiated by our office.  Should you be defined as a member of the class, you may be entitled to compensation should the Court authorize and ultimately grant the class action, or should a settlement be reached (and approved by the Court).

Finally, be advised that the above-description and summary of the case is being posted on this website for your convenience.  However, in case of conflict between the information on this website and the actual proceedings, documents, and/or judgments in the Court record of this case, the official Court record documents will prevail.  We have for your convenience posted on this webpage certain scanned copies of the several relevant documents from the Court record, including the initial motion to authorize the bringing of the class action which describes the case in much more detail.  You should therefore consult these documents as well as consult this website periodically in order to be kept informed.
