Dometic announces today that on July 24, 2019 the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida dismissed in its entirety a consolidated class action lawsuit against the company.
The Court for the Southern District of Florida found that plaintiffs’ allegations of a common defect were not susceptible to class wide treatment. This marks the second time that a court has rejected plaintiffs’ attempt to assert class-wide allegations related to Dometic gas-absorption refrigerators. In 2017, a similar putative class action was dismissed because the plaintiffs had failed to establish the existence of the alleged defect.
“I am pleased to see the ruling to dismiss the class action lawsuit. We have all along remained firm in the position that the allegations in the consolidated case were without merit”, says Juan Vargues, President and CEO of Dometic.
