SOLNA, Sweeden — In view of the statements Hagens Berman, a law firm representing consumers who have experienced refrigerator fires in their recreation vehicles, has made regarding an alleged new class action complaint that has been filed against Dometic in the United States, Dometic makes the following clarification.
The class action complaint referred to by Hagens Berman, which was filed on July 8, is not a new complaint, but rather an amended complaint. It was filed by the same law firm in the same court. The amended complaint adds two additional plaintiffs, who jointly own an RV, to the original five plaintiffs for a total of seven plaintiffs.
Dometic filed a motion to dismiss the original complaint June 17 and will file another motion to dismiss the amended complaint. Amended complaints are common and this one was not unexpected, the statement noted.
Another common part of the legal process is that competing law firms can file similar complaints. Another law firm filed a similar lawsuit against Dometic in the Southern District of Florida. This complaint currently includes seven individual plaintiffs, none of whom claims to have experienced any manifested defect related to a Dometic product.
Dometic remains firm in its position that the allegations are without merit and intends to vigorously defend against them.
