Have you owned an eMachines computer anytime in the last 16 years? If that computer had a floppy drive in it, you may be eligible to receive benefits from a settlement being reached in a class action suit.
The lawsuit, known as Stroud v. eMachines, Inc., claimed that the defendants sold computers with a defective part that could possibly cause the loss or corruption of data. Both parties have agreed to a settlement in order to avoid further litigation, with a final approval hearing scheduled for March 25, 2013.
Class members will have the option to receive a redemption certificate worth $365 which can be used to purchase a replacement computer from Acer, Gateway, or eMachines. The other options for Class Members are receiving a sum of $62.50 in cash and/or accessories.
The models included were sold on or after December 31, 1997, and are as follows:
