Thirty-eight owners of the smartphone in plan to file a class action lawsuit against Electronics Company for alleged inconvenience experienced after the discontinuation of the device, a law firm said on Wednesday.

Each person in the suit, which will be filed with the Central on the following Monday, is seeking 300,000 won ($266.8) in damages, Harvest Law Office said.

The proposed suit alleges that owners of the Note 7 were forced to visit stores several times for battery checks or to get replacements, Yonhap news agency reported.

The complaint also states that the consumers experienced anxiety over safety while using the Note 7.

Koh Young-il, an attorney at the law firm, said he expects the firm to win the suit, given precedents for faulty products.

Last week, permanently halted sales and production of the fire-prone Note 7, about two months after the device's launch.
