Berman Tabacco

Apple Processor Consumer Litigation

In re Apple Processor Litigation, No. 18-cv-00147-EJD (N.D. Cal.)

Berman Tabacco is co-lead counsel representing a proposed nationwide class of purchasers of Apple devices, such as iPhones, iPads, and Apple TVs. The case alleges that certain of Apple’s devices are defective because their central processing units are subject to two vulnerabilities—called Spectre and Meltdown—that permit hackers to extract personal information from the devices. The case further alleges that Apple’s efforts to fix the defects have caused significant slowdowns in the performance of the devices. The lawsuit asserts product defect, breach of warranty, and consumer protection claims.
