On August 19, 2023, Goldenberg Schneider, LPA, along with co-counsel, filed a class action lawsuit against Hyundai Motor Company, Hyundai Motor America, KIA Corporation, and KIA America, Inc. (“the Defendants”.) Plaintiffs alleged the Defendants failed to include anti-theft immobilizer technology in several million vehicles manufactured and sold by Defendants. The absence of an immobilizer in these vehicles caused a huge surge in stolen Kia and Hyundai vehicles. In December 2022, all of the cases filed nationwide related to this issue were transferred by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to the Federal District Court in the Central District of California. On July 5, 2023, Judge James Selna appointed Jeffrey Goldenberg to the leadership team for this litigation. A Motion for Preliminary Approval of Settlement was filed on September 27, 2023, and it is currently pending before the Court.
