HP Laser Printers will face a class action lawsuit over their role in the development of HP Laser ProScan printers.
The company announced on Monday that it would file a lawsuit in the US District Court for the District of Columbia.
The lawsuit alleges that the company has “knowingly, willfully, recklessly and knowingly provided defective, unauthorized, and harmful products to HP Laser Printer Drivers.”
The company said it will seek damages and/or attorney fees.
“We are disappointed to learn that the complaint is seeking to recover damages from us in connection with the product defect, but we are confident that we will prevail on all claims,” HP said in a statement.
“HP Laser Printer Drivers have been an integral part of HP’s success in the field of high-performance printer technology.
The products they have developed are essential to the continued development of the industry and HP Laser Drivers have continued to lead the way in providing innovative, high-quality printers to the market.
HP Laser Pointers have a long history of developing and delivering innovative and high-end printers to a wide range of customers.
The company is committed to making sure that all of its customers are able to continue to rely on HP Laser Technology products.”
In a statement, the company said, “We will vigorously defend this case and look forward to a resolution that is fair, just and does not threaten the rights of any individuals.
We have taken this action to protect the rights and livelihoods of our customers, our suppliers and our suppliers’ employees.
We are committed to providing our customers with the best products and solutions that they have come to expect from HP Laser.
We also look forward for continued cooperation from the government in this case.”
The case is currently under review by the US Justice Department.
