Attorneys for James, Hoyer have announced the settlement of class-action lawsuits brought against Hewlett-Packard ("HP"), concerning HP's alleged failure to disclose important information about hard drives on computers it sold, and that the computers did not include recovery CDs and "ValueAdd" and "Support" folders with the Windows XP operating systems installed at the factory. Two consumers represented by James, Hoyer brought the suits on behalf of tens of thousands of HP purchasers. They accused HP of engaging in deceptive and unfair trade practices.

James, Hoyer negotiated a nationwide settlement with HP that provides computer buyers with free recovery CDs, free software, and free "ValueAdd" and "Support" files. The settlement resulted from years of hard-fought litigation by James, Hoyer.
