In a class action lawsuit against Apple, plaintiffs allege the company released system-slowing software updates to the iPhone 5, 6, and certain iPhone 7 phones. Attorney James Vlahakis of Sulaiman Law Group, which also operates as Atlas Consumer Law, is representing these plaintiffs as Lead Counsel against the billion-dollar company.LOMBARD, Ill., Dec. 21, 2017 — (PRNewswire) — Sulaiman Law Group, Ltd., which operates as Atlas Consumer Law, is representing several plaintiffs in a class action complaint against Apple, Inc--led by Attorney James Vlahakis, Lead Counsel. Plaintiffs Ala Abdulla, Lance A. Raphael, Sam Mangano, Ryan Glaze, and Kirk Pedelty came forward against Apple, claiming the company purposefully and knowingly released operating system software updates to a number of generations of the iPhone in an effort to slow the CPU performance speeds of these devices. These iOS updates, plaintiffs claim, were engineered with this very purpose in mind--fraudulently forcing iPhone owners to purchase the latest model offered by Apple.
Apple's failure to inform consumers these updates would wreak havoc on the phone's performance is being deemed purposeful, and if proven, constitutes the unlawful and decisive withholding of material information. This is in direct violation of the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act, as well as Indiana's Deceptive Consumer Sales Act, North Carolina's Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act, and Common Law Fraud, all of which state against unfair methods of competition and/or trade conducted under false pretenses. As a result, countless consumers have been harmed and defrauded by this illicit and immoral conduct. The plaintiffs are demanding a trial by jury.
