In Re: Lenovo Adware Litigation

Pritzker Levine (as Co-Lead Class Counsel) represented a certified class of more than 800,000 consumers in a nationwide multi-district class action against Lenovo and Superfish for damages arising from the surreptitious installation of a Superfish spyware program by Lenovo on certain notebook computer models sold in the United States.  The Superfish program “VisualDiscovery” allowed Superfish to monitor and alter computer users’ internet search results, while at the same time making those computers vulnerable to security breaches and data theft.  The litigation resulted in an $8.3 million settlement to compensate purchasers of the affected Lenovo computers.
