A court authorized this notice. It is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
You are receiving this notice because you have been identified as a potential class member in a class action lawsuit pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The case is called In re MyFord Touch Consumer Litigation, and the docket number is 3:13-cv-03072-EMC. Plaintiffs purchased or leased a Ford or Lincoln vehicle equipped with an in-vehicle information and entertainment system called MyFord Touch or MyLincoln Touch system ("MFT") from a Ford or Lincoln dealer before August 9, 2013. MFT is an in-vehicle information and entertainment system. The defendant in the lawsuit is Ford Motor Company. The class action may affect your rights. You must decide whether to remain in the lawsuit as a class member or to exclude yourself. Your options are summarized below. Plaintiffs allege that MFTs on these vehicles are defective because, among other things, they will not respond to voice commands; do not connect to the owner's mobile device; provide inaccurate directions and/or misread the location of the vehicle; and/or freeze up or crash altogether. Plaintiffs allege that when MFT freezes or crashes the driver cannot operate any of the features connected to MFT including the navigation technology, the radio, and the rearview camera or defroster. Plaintiffs further allege that Ford charged a premium price for MFT. Plaintiffs seek only economic damages and are not pursuing claims for personal injuries. Ford denies that it did anything wrong and denies that MFT is defective. The Court has not yet decided whether Ford did anything wrong. There are no benefits available at this time. However, your legal rights are affected.
