RE: Langelaan v. NVIDIA Corporation
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 the NVIDIA Corporation which alleged that the defendant was negligent and breached their equitable duties by designing, testing, manufacturing, selling and distributing defective Graphics Processing Units which they knew or ought to have known would be integrated into computers for purchasing without inspection. The claim was advanced on behalf of Canadians who purchased a computer equipped with a defective NVIDIA Graphic Processing Unit or Media Communications chip between January 1, 2006 and June 12, 2013. Our firm reached a settlement wherein NVIDIA Corporation agreed to pay $1.9 million dollars in complete resolution of the litigation. Following a national multimedia notice program, there was a 6 month claims window for class member to make claims. The claims process opened on October 25, 2013 and closed on May 30, 2014. Class members received cash compensation based on the severity of qualifying symptoms experienced, the loss of use of the computer, the age of the Affected Computer, and any out-of-pocket repair expenses. This matter is now fully resolved and our file is closed.
