Frequently Asked Questions

What is this case about?

Sonos’ smart speakers have the ability to be paired with voice-activated software like Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri. This software is constantly listening for wake words such as “Hey Alexa,” “Okay Google,” or “Hey Siri.” It does this by recording and analyzing short snippets of audio that are continuously overwritten if no wake word is detected. If a wake word is detected, the software switches into active listening mode, meaning that it begins recording and analyzing audio to carry out the user’s command. There are many instances of these devices either misinterpreting a wake word, or activating without the wake word, thereby recording someone when they did not wish to be recorded. 

We are pursuing private arbitration claims against Sonos alleging claims that consumers had their private conversations recorded without their consent. Successful claims could be entitled to up to $10,000.

No, this is not a class action lawsuit. Your individual arbitration claim will be decided on its own facts, which is why we ask for more information than is normally required when signing up for a class action settlement.

Arbitration is a private dispute resolution process. Your claim will not be filed in court. Your claim will be decided by an arbitrator, who is a neutral person chosen by you and the company. We can select an arbitrator for you who is fair and neutral.

Many consumer agreements or services, like T-Mobile’s Terms and Conditions, have mandatory arbitration provisions in their agreements and/or terms of use, along with class action waivers. You probably signed these agreements, such as with banks and credit card companies, even if you’ve never seen them or do not remember. They are also found in many online click-through agreements, such as travel, shopping, gaming, or entertainment sites. These clauses not only require you to arbitrate your claim, but to do so individually.

Our fees will be a percentage of the settlement or recovery we obtain for you. That amount will depend on the rules in the state you live in. We only receive a fee if you win, and you will never owe us any money. While success is not guaranteed, we’ll do our best for you.
