Consumer Sues Lawsuit Against AVG Technologies CZ, s.r.o. and AVG Technologies USA, Inc

Rottner sued AVG Technologies CZ, s.r.o. (AVG CZ) and AVG Technologies USA, Inc. (AVG US). He claimed that the companies falsely represented the software's capabilities to induce customers to purchase the software. AVG CZ marketed and sold the software PC TuneUp through its website www.avg.com. AVG US was responsible for retail store sales of the software. AVG US moved to dismiss Rottner's claims against it. The district court determined that AVG US did not sell the software to Rottner and was not a party to the end license user agreement between Rottner and AVG CZ. The claims against AVG US therefore failed. The district court rejected Rottner's assertion that the defendants were alter egos for liability purposes. The complaint alleged no facts showing that corporate formalities were not observed and that AVG US functioned as a mere façade for AVG CZ. AVG CZ also filed a motion to dismiss. The district court declined to dismiss the express warranty claims. Rottner plausibly pleaded the software's claimed functionality operated as an express warranty separate and apart from the end license user agreement's provisions disclaiming warranties. Dismissal of the implied warranty claim was appropriate. Massachusetts law permitted a disclaimer of implied warranties so long as the disclaimer was in writing and conspicuous. The disclaimer was in capital letters and specifically identified the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. The district court found that the breach of contract and breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing claim could proceed. The express warranty regarding PC TuneUp's functionality formed the basis of the parties' bargain. The cause of action for fraudulent inducement survived dismissal.
