In re: Zurn Pex Plumbing Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 1958, (U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota).
We were chair of the executive committee in this nation-wide class action which comprised of homes and business-owners, who brought several class actions against Zurn Pex, Inc. and Zurn Industries LLP (“Zurn”) concerning alleged defects associated with its cross-linked Pex tubing and brass fittings plumbing systems. The plaintiffs charged that Zurn not only designed and manufactured a faulty product, but that it also marketed and sold it without disclosing the risks to consumers, and have failed to honor its product’s “worry-free” 25-year warranty.
UPDATE: On February 27, 2013, the District Court for Minnesota granted final approval of the settlement valued at approximately $30 million. For more information about our settlement, please check out the settlement website at: www.plumbingfittingsettlement.com.
