Class action settlement cites QuickBooks 2006 issues

QuickBooks 2006 lawsuit

The Garden City Group has filed a Notice of Class Action Settlement, based on a case alleging that Intuit's QuickBooks 2006 software can cause the loss or damage of important data. As a result of Create-A-Card v. Intuit Inc., affected QuickBooks users may thus be eligible to claim an award. The settlement proposes reimbursement of both monetary recovery as well as a free upgrade to QuickBooks Pro 2007.

To receive an award victims must submit a claim form, at which point they are bound to the terms of the settlement's agreement and release. The deadline for submitting a form is August 31st. The Ontario Superior Court of Justice has approved the settlement, pending final approval by the US District Court for the Northern District of California; this means that both Canadian and American residents can file for compensation.

    They file a class action suit over a minor issue like 'loss of critical data'? Man, people will sue over anything these days.

    These guys are my client. They did not back up their data before, they sure do now.

    you don't understand

    Some of the people using this version actually had their Quickbooks company files corrupted to the point of being unsalvageable. I'd be pissed too.

    Awful software

    We're running Quickbooks 2006 now and although we haven't lost data and make multiple backups, this software is awful for other reasons and I wish I could one day find a replacement for it. Anyone have suggestions?
