Washington DC-based law firm Whitfield, Bryson & Mason announced that it had filed a class action lawsuit against Apple over widespread graphical issues encountered on 2011 MacBook Pros with AMD GPUs.
The issue appears to stem from poor soldering between the GPU and logic board. According to the lawsuit:
The news comes after a change.org petition calling for Apple to replace or fix all 2011 MacBook Pros that experienced the issue has reached over 20,000 signatures.
The lawsuit is currently being filed on behalf of customers in California and Florida, and is being considered for filing in other parts of the country as well.
