Ricoh Sheds Consumer Suit Alleging it Hid Pentax Camera Defect

  • Cameras allegedly stopped working after about a year
  • Consumer claims untimely; no reliance on warranty shown

New York consumers failed to raise any viable claims in a proposed class suit alleging Ricoh USA Inc. concealed a flaw in certain Pentax cameras, a federal court in the state said.

Janet Kyszenia, Veronica Sanders, and Elizabeth Galkowski alleged that low-quality materials cause the camera aperture to stop working properly after about a year, making photos appear completely dark.
