On January 3, 2018, after The Register broke the news of massive security vulnerabilities in all of Intel’s CPUs since 2004, Doyle APC filed the first class action complaint against Intel Corporation for damages caused by these security defects.
The class action case, titled Garcia, et al. v. Intel Corporation, Case No. 18-cv-00046 (N.D. Cal.), was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California and has been assigned to the Hon. Edward Davila.
The case seeks to represent all persons in the United States who purchased one of these Intel CPUs or a laptop, desktop or server containing one of the Intel CPUs.
Additional class action lawsuits have been filed in New York, Indiana, and Oregon and it is expected that more cases will be filed. It is likely that all of these cases will be consolidated before one Judge, in a process to conserve judicial resources called “multi-district litigation.”
