Scott+Scott, Attorneys at Law, LLP Announces

Commencement of Litigation against Qualcomm

Scott+Scott, Attorneys at Law, LLP (“Scott+Scott”) has commenced litigation against Qualcomm Incorporated (“Qualcomm”) for violations of the antitrust laws resulting from Qualcomm’s monopoly power forcing cell phone and tablet device manufacturers to pay excessively high royalties, which has directly resulted in harm to consumers, including Plaintiff and the Class.  Qualcomm’s actions have specifically resulted in consumers paying higher prices for their cellular devices than they would have in the absence of Qualcomm’s conduct.

Most recently, on January 17, 2017, the United States Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) filed an enforcement action against Qualcomm in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, challenging Qualcomm’s unlawful maintenance of a monopoly, and alleging Qualcomm has excluded competitors and harmed competition, resulting in the increased prices paid by consumers for cell phones and tablets.

If you purchased a CDMA- and/or premium LTE cellphone or tablet device from January 17, 2013 through the present, you may have overpaid for your device and you may be a member of the Class.  If you would like additional information about the litigation, please contact Michael Burnett of Scott+Scott at Scottlaw@scott-scott.com, (800) 404-7770, or (860) 537-5537.
