In re: Building Material Corporation of America Asphalt Roofing Shingle Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 8:11–mn–02000–JMC (U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina).
We served as co-lead counsel in several class actions against GAF concerning its fiberglass shingles. The complaints allege that GAF designed, manufactured, advertised, warranted and sold defective fiberglass shingles that were not in compliance with applicable testing standards, and without taking any steps to cure the problem(s) or honor its warranties. Defective shingles not only must be replaced, but can cause damage to the structure of the house.
UPDATE: On April 22, 2015, the District of South Carolina granted final approval of a proposed settlement of over $200 million. The class of approximately six million individuals, one of the largest home building material classes ever, allows for claims to be made for up to seven years.
