RE: Ronald Smith & Associates Inc. v. Intuit Canada et al.
The content of this page has not been approved by the Court nor does it constitute legal advice. It is for the purpose of providing general information only.
Our firm prosecuted a case against Intuit Canada and Intuit Canada Inc. which alleged that the malfunctioning software updater caused data or files to become inaccessible or damaged, corrupted or lost either temporarily or permanently. The claim was advanced on behalf of all users of QuickBooks Pro 2006 for Mac Software who experienced a malfunction in connection with a software updater between December 15, 2007 and January 3, 2008. Our firm reached a settlement wherein the Defendants had to provide full reimbursement for certain data recovery expenses, reimbursement for data reconstruction and other data recovery efforts and a free upgrade to QuickBooks Pro 2007 for Mac in complete resolution of the litigation. The settlement recoveries were successfully distributed to class members pursuant to the court approved Plan of Distribution. This matter is not fully resolved and our file is closed.
