Andrew J. Kubik has been litigating class action cases since 2006. He has successfully litigated a broad variety of claims against some of the largest corporations in the world, including claims for false advertising, shareholder rights, securities fraud, violations of antitrust laws, unfair competition, defective products, privacy, and international telecommunications fraud. He has also represented defendants in class action litigation.
Mr. Kubik was part of the lead counsel team that represented purchasers of Bosch front-load washing machines alleging a defect that resulted in mold and mildew build-up inside the washers, No. 10-00711 (C.D. Cal). The case was certified as a class action by District Judge David O. Carter, and Bosch appealed the decision to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and United States Supreme Court. After extensive expert discovery and contentious motion practice, consumers ultimately prevailed and a settlement was reached on the shortly before trial valued at over $35 million.
Some other favorable settlements Mr. Kubik has helped to achieve for consumers and investors over his career include: $175 million settlement in antitrust case Comes v. Microsoft Corp., No. CL82311 (D. IA); a $137.5 million settlement in securities fraud case Carpenters Health & Welfare Fund v. The Coca-Cola Co., No. 00-2838 (N.D. Ga.); a $48 million settlement in the antitrust case In re Reformulated Gasoline (RFG) Antitrust & Patent Litigation, No. 05-01671 (C.D. Cal.); a $1.95 million settlement in Dance v. Levit Corp. Securities Litigation, a $75 million settlement In Re Wachovia Securities Litigation, and Ticho v. Budget Rent-a-Car Systems, which resulted in a settlement consisting of a 100% refund of unfair fees to class members.
Mr. Kubik has also obtained favorable results for consumers in cases involving defective Electrolux refrigerators, defective Maytag dishwashers manufactured by Whirlpool, therapeutic heating pads marketed by Kaz, Inc., falsely advertised stem-cell treatments, and toll road privacy practices.
