The purpose of this website is to inform you of a class action lawsuit called Jeffrey Koenig, et al. v. VIZIO, Inc., Case No. BC 70266, in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles.

  • The Settlement resolves a lawsuit alleging that VIZIO’s advertisement of certain of its Televisions as having a “120Hz Effective Refresh Rate” or “240Hz Effective Refresh Rate” was false and misleading. VIZIO denies all of Plaintiff’s allegations and contends that it properly labeled each television.
  • The Settlement defines the Settlement Class as all individuals who purchased a VIZIO television in California in the Class Period that was advertised as having a “120Hz Effective Refresh Rate” or “240Hz Effective Refresh Rate.” The Class Period extends from April 30, 2014, through the date that the Court enters final judgment following the final approval hearing currently scheduled for June 20, 2024.
  • The two sides disagree on whether Plaintiff and the Settlement Class could have prevailed at trial. By entering into the Settlement, VIZIO has not conceded the truth or validity of any of the claims against it.
  • To resolve the lawsuit, Plaintiff and VIZIO, Inc. (“VIZIO”) have agreed to the following relief for the Settlement Class. VIZIO has agreed to (i) stop the advertising practices; (ii) provide enhanced services and a limited one-year warranty to all Settlement Class Members; and (iii) pay $3,000,000 (“Settlement Awards”) in full and complete settlement and release of all claims. The Court will need to grant final approval of this Settlement before the Settlement Class receives any benefits.
  • An attorneys’ fee award to be determined by the Court, notice and administration costs, and any incentive award to the Class Representatives to be determined by the Court will be paid separately and apart from the Settlement Awards.
  • If the Court grants final approval of this Settlement, the Settlement Awards will be paid at up to $50 per valid Claim and subject to pro rata decrease, depending on the number of all approved Claims submitted.
