Samsung wins Korean lawsuit over Galaxy Note7 [Updated]

Peter, 10 August 2017

Last year, a group of Galaxy Note7 owners filed a class action lawsuit against Samsung in South Korea. They sought KRW 300 thousand ($267) per person for the inconvenience called by the recall. Since then, the number of claimants has grown to 1,900 and the money to of KRW 935 million ($822,000 total, $433 per person.)

Now a local court has ruled in favor of Samsung, saying that the recall and any inconvenience it might have caused was not “unacceptable”.

A similar suit was filed against Samsung in the US, but that is still ongoing.

Update: The users will be appealing the court's decision. The appeal should be filed within two weeks.
