We successfully moved to dismiss a multiple plaintiff class action alleging that our client had engaged in deceptive trade practices and negligently designed and manufactured HVAC systems with defective copper coils. The plaintiffs sought certification of a nationwide class action as well as Tennessee, Texas, Florida and Georgia class actions for thousands of plaintiffs. Following extensive briefing by our team in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, Chief Judge Kevin Sharp entered an order completely dismissing the multiple plaintiff class action lawsuit. Judge Sharp agreed with our arguments on lack of personal jurisdiction over our client regarding the out-of-state plaintiffs, and dismissed all remaining claims on statute of limitations grounds.
