The People's Republic of China Reimburses U.S. Businesses
California businesses filed against the People's Republic of China and the People's Government of the Hubei Province for trillions of dollars lost due to the failure of the Chinese government to contain the deadly coronavirus. In California’s Central District, the lawsuit alleges that the Chinese government had a duty to United States. The Chinese government neglected it’s duty to control the contagious COVID-19 virus to prevent the pandemic. Rather than notify the international business community of the deadly coronavirus, the Chinese and Hubei governments lied about its virulence, destroyed evidence, even silenced doctors, scientists, lawyers, and journalists to contain awareness of the deadly virus that killed 237,000 people in the United States by November 2020.
Blatant Disregard for the Welfare of Others
Nevada businesses filed a similar multibillion-dollar class action lawsuit against the People's Republic of China and the government of the Hubei Province. The class action lawsuit attacks China's secretive handling of the COVID-19 virus which in pandemic proportions decimated small businesses in the United States. Businesses forced to close had to file for bankruptcy when they reopened. The lawsuit sets forth that China is not immune from prosecution under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act because concealing and releasing COVID-19 showed wanton disregard for the health and welfare of United States citizens.
Class action lawsuits often take years to resolve, and they are not always successful. Lumber Liquidators quickly settled a class action claim regarding their laminate flooring produced in China for $36 million in the Eastern District Court of Virginia. The settlement compensated American consumers for building materials with dangerously high levels of formaldehyde in California, Virginia, Florida, Texas, Illinois, and New York.
U.S. Department of Transportation - Air China
A class action lawsuit in the United States District Court of South Carolina against Air China, Limited, seeks to recover full refunds for all flights cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The United States Department of Transportation (“DOT”) “issued an Enforcement Notice in response to the public health emergency that requires all airlines to reimburse passengers for airline tickets that they were unable to use due to the coronavirus pandemic. Air China never directly told passengers that their flights were cancelled.
China Hoarded Protective Equipment Needed in the United States
Medical practitioners filed a class action lawsuit against the People’s Republic of China for “hoarding and stockpiling” medical equipment needed on the frontlines of the pandemic in the United States. China purchased personal protective gear and respirators. They blocked the export of N95 respirators, booties, and gloves in January 2020. Honeywell and 3M, U.S. manufacturers with plants in China, claim China's “deliberate and egregious” act of blocking exports from leaving their country increased sickness and death in the United States.
Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines
Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines faces a class action lawsuit brought by investors who lost 14% of their investment when Royal Caribbean honestly reported difficulty controlling the coronavirus. In the Southern District Court of Florida, Miami investors believed Royal Caribbean lied about its February and March 2020 bookings. Royal Caribbean’s stock plummeted further when the company cancelled consumers' cruises and reimbursed them from a $550 million loan.
Illegal Wiretapping Through Exported Cell Phones
In the Southern District of Florida, consumers filed a class action lawsuit against Blu Products and Shanghai Adups Technology when they discovered malware installed in 120,000 Blu smartphones. Particularly upsetting was the fact that the malware transmitted texts, locations, and contact information along with the owner’s personal information to a server in China. Beyond the privacy violation, Blu’s wiretapping plot is a cyber security violation that threatens the safety of their cell phone owners.
Securities Violations - Six Flags Amusement Park - China
In the Northern District Court of Dallas, Texas, the Electrical Workers Pension Fund filed a class action lawsuit against Six Flags Entertainment Corporation for violations of the federal securities laws in their planned construction of a Six Flags Amusement Park in China. A proposed class action lawsuit alleges Six Flags Entertainment Corporation inflated stock prices by misleading investors with plans to build theme parks across China. Six Flags Stock plummeted when the defendant reported the proposed construction was “in jeopardy.”
Class action lawsuits help us recover financial compensation from the People's Republic of China and the People's Government of the Hubei Province for releasing the COVID-19 coronavirus on the world. Innocent people suffer needlessly due to the negligence or deceptive schemes of others. Class action lawsuits help "victims fight back."
