Wilson v. Hewlett-Packard Co., 10-16249

In a suit alleging that Hewlett-Packard (HP) concealed a design defect in its Pavilion Notebook computers that manifested after the expiration of the warranty and created an unreasonable safety hazard in violation of California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act and Unfair Competition Law, the district court's dismissal of the complaint is affirmed, where: 1) the district court did not err in requiring the plaintiffs to allege the existence of an unreasonable safety defect; and 2) the district court did not err in holding that the plaintiffs failed to plausibly allege the existence of an unreasonable safety defect or HP’s knowledge of a defect.
