Wolf v. Hewlett-Packard

Welcome to the Wolf v. Hewlett-Packard Class Action Website

Consumers have sued Hewlett-Packard Company, now known as HP, Inc. (“HP”) over whether it manufactured, marketed, advertised, and sold printers that were advertised to include “HP Smart Install,” a feature designed to allow for the easy software installation of printers, when in fact this feature had been disabled from these printers.

You may be part of this class action if you are a consumer within the meaning of the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act, Cal. Civil Code § 1761(d), who purchased a HP LaserJet Pro P1102 printer at a physical retail location in the State of California between April 2014 and the present, and if your printer was advertised to include the "HP Smart Install" feature, but was in fact subject to HP’s disablement of the Smart Install Feature. To be included in this class action as a “consumer,” you must have purchased a HP LaserJet Pro P1102 printer primarily for personal, family or household purposes.

This case is currently scheduled to go to trial. There is no money available now and no guarantee there will be in the future. However, you rights are affected, and you have a choice to make now.
