Wii Wrist Straps: Let the Lawsuits Begin

Law firm Green Welling LLP has filed the inevitable Wii wrist strap class action lawsuit, wherein they claim, ” Nintendo’s failure to include a remote that is free from defects is in breach of Nintendo’s own product warranty.” What’s the point of suing Nintendo?

“The class action lawsuit seeks to enjoin Nintendo from continuing its unfair or deceptive business practices as it relates to the Nintendo Wii.The lawsuit also seeks an injunction that requires Nintendo to correct the defect in the Wii remote and to provide a refund to the purchaser or to replace the defective Wii remote with a Wii remote that functions as it is warranted and intended.”

The lawsuit is now awaiting approval of a judge. Nintendo has already recalled the current wrist straps and offered free replacements, so we’re why this law firm feels the need to sue over it. If you feel like joining the class action, there’s information on the firm’s website.
