This site was an international collection of evidence that many JVC camcorders have design and manufacturing defects. Owners were then expected to pay for "repairs" which did not work. JVC was taken to court here in the USA because thosands felt chated. Originally I dealt Steven Berk, a class-action lawyer who seemed interested in helping. After more than 2 years, the lawsuit was settled, with inconclusive results. Read below for more information.

Since the lawyers that were supposed to represent us consumers of JVC camcorders in a class-action lawsuit instead took the money and ran (see post below) I have been trying to find out how things ended up this way, with the legal process leaving everyone in the class as screwed as we were before contacting the lawyers.

It feels like when some scam artists (JVC) rip you off, then someone else offers to help you (the lawyers) and they rip you off as well. Adding insult to injury. You get the picture.

This is what I have so far:

The original complaint against JVC was filed in Camden County, Superior Court of New Jersey, on October 21, 2004. It was assigned docket number L 6972 04. This document is available as a PDF file here.

On January 7, 2005, the case was moved to Possaic County's Superior Court. This county has not heard of the Internet, so there is nothing online about this case, which by the way, was assigned docket number L 224 05. Someone needs to go to the courthouse and physically copy whatever documents are relevant! Apparently there are some 6 inches of documents, which would cost hundreds of dollars to copy, so the main thing we all want is to see the FINAL SETTLEMENT, which should disclose just how our own class-action lawyers screwed us. I can throw in a few bucks towards copies of the relevant documents, and anyone who wants to help out can email me. My intention is to post the documents on the Internet as soon as I get my hands on them.

The Records Office at the courthouse is at 77 Hamilton St., Patterson, NJ 07505. They can be reached at 973-247-8176 (someone named Rosie, who never answers the phone or returns messages) or 973-247-8176 (someone named Biron, who seems willing to help more.)

Email me at juancarrera @ and let me know if you can help. More than 30 thousand people have visited this website, so we can do a lot of good by locating the documents at the courthouse and posting them online. Shortly after we have the documents, I'm contacting everyone I can get to listen to me to look into this: Newspapers, Investigative TV shows like 60 Minutes, the FBI, who coincidentally has been looking into class-action fraud. And anyone else I can think of.
