Lightfoot Secures Settlement and Dismissal of National Class Action Against Boiler Manufacturer

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (June 7, 2018) — Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC litigators have secured the settlement and dismissal of a national class action lawsuit filed in Maine against the firm’s client, a boiler manufacturer.

The firm successfully attacked the class warranty and tort claims at the pleading stage using a published opinion that Lightfoot had previously won in Texas — Rosa v. American Water Heater Co., 177 F. Supp. 3d 1025 (S.D. Tex. 2016). In that earlier case, the federal court struck a different national class action against another Lightfoot client at the pleading stage.

The Lightfoot lawyers working on this matter are partner Sara Anne Ford and associate David A. Rich.
