Dana Gold, et al. v. Lumber Liquidators, Inc., Case. No. 3:14-cv-05373 (U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California).
CGL is leading a case against Lumber Liquidator, Inc. alleging that bamboo flooring products that it developed, marketed and sold are defective. Alleged defects include gapping, swelling, cracking, and general deterioration.
We successfully defended against motions to dismiss, Daubert motions, a motion for summary judgment, and a transfer of venue motion. Plaintiffs certified six state classes and defeated a subsequent Rule 23(f) appeal petition and are currently awaiting final approval of the proposed $30 million settlement. See Gold v. Lumber Liquidators, Inc., 323 F.R.D. 280 (N.D. Cal. 2017).
UPDATE: On December 18, 2019, the Court granted preliminary approval of the potential $30 million settlement. Final approval of the settlement is scheduled to take place in September 2020.
