Embedded above is a video message from an attorney at Girard Gibbs, an American law firm that launched a class action suit against LG for boot loop issues related to the G4, G5, Nexus 5X, V10 and V20. Android Police reported yesterday that the firm had reached a settlement with LG, one with a fairly generous payout for affected users: $425 USD cash or a $700 credit towards a new LG device.
Some time after the Android Police report was published Girard Gibbs’ LG arbitration site went offline. On that site was a link to a SurveyMonkey form, and an indication that LG owners could still join the class action suit up until February 12th. So why did the site suddenly go dark? Here’s a commenter on AP:
I just called the law firm directly. They seemed frustrated about the initial launch, apparently this was not for the general public. The survey is now password protected. This is closed, you can’t join if you weren’t part of it prior.
If you’re a U.S. citizen and an owner of one of the aforementioned LG devices, you might want to bookmark that Girard Gibbs page, or at least keep an eye on this r/Android reddit thread. Good luck!
