Supreme Court Allows For Rare Win In Customers’ Lawsuit Against Samsung

 Wednesday, October 4, 2017


The Supreme Court has a long history of ruling against consumers when it involves a company’s attempt to strip its customers of their right to a day in court, but this week the nation’s highest court decided to not hear an appeal in a lawsuit involving Samsung, marking a rare instance in which SCOTUS came down on the consumers’ side in this issue. This case, Norcia v. Samsung, involves Samsung customers who allege the company misled them about the speed, performance, and memory capacity of the company’s Galaxy S4 phone. Samsung, like just about every other tech company, includes a “forced arbitration” clause in its terms of service.
