MLG’s notable CASES
Apple Texting and Driving Class Action
On January 17, 2017, MLG’s team of auto lawyers filed a class action lawsuit against Apple, Inc., to
address the extremely serious problem of texting and driving which endangers the lives of tens of
millions of people every day. The case was filed in state court in Los Angeles, and is entitled Julio Ceja v. Apple, Inc.
Volkswagen Emissions Scandal
The Volkswagen emission scandal surfaced in September 2015, when Volkswagen admitted that it had been
falsifying emissions data for nearly 500,000 diesel cars sold in the U.S., and that it had instructed its software engineers
to develop a sophisticated “defeat device” that would conceal the vehicles’ true emissions levels from regulators.
GM Ignition Switch Fraud
In early 2014, General Motors recalled approximately 800,000 vehicles due to faulty ignition switches,
which posed the risk of spontaneously shutting off the vehicle’s engine during normal operation. On March 21, 2014,
MLG’s auto lawyers filed a class action lawsuit against General Motors relating to this massive recall.
BMW i3 Range Extender
BMW’s new all electric vehicle, the i3 REx, is alleged to contain a faulty and dangerous “range extender” feature.
On May 17, 2016, MLG filed a class action lawsuit against BMW for these defects in the 2014 to 2016 models.
Uber Fraudulent Business Practices
As the company was beginning to build momentum, ride-share sensation Uber was alleged to have made
numerous misrepresentations to the public about the safety of its driver background checks. On January 26,
2015, MLG filed a class action lawsuit against Uber for fraudulent business practices.
Toyota Soy-Based Wiring
In the mid-2000s, Toyota began replacing its plastic wire coverings with a soy-based product. The move was
intended to be more environmentally friendly, but it had a very disastrous side effect: the soy materials
invited rodents to chew through the insulation, causing severe damage to vehicles’ electrical system.
Kia Fuel Economy Fraud
MLG’s team of auto lawyers sought to hold Kia responsible for their false statements regarding Kia’s
purported fuel efficiency. On January 9, 2013, MLG filed a class action lawsuit against Kia, alleging the
car company misrepresented the gas mileage capabilities of certain 2011-2013 model vehicles.
Maserati’s Defective Locking System
Maserati North America, Inc. was faced with a class action filed by MLG for its 2014 to 2016 model
year Ghibli vehicles equipped with a defect that allows the key fob to be locked inside the vehicle
without a way to unlock it, creating a dangerous situation if a pet or child is locked inside the car.
