SYDNEY, Ohio — Norcold today agreed, subject to court approval, to settle two class action lawsuits pending in federal district court in Los Angeles on behalf of customers who had purchased certain Norcold RV refrigerators.
The settlement applies to consumers who own or owned a Norcold 1200 Series refrigerator manufactured between Jan. 1, 2002 and Oct. 1, 2012, or who currently own a Norcold Series N6 or N8 manufactured between Jan. 1, 2009 to Dec. 31, 2013.
Norcold, which denies the allegations, said the settlement will allow the company to avoid the uncertainty, risk, expense and distraction of further class-action litigation.
The suit alleged that a Norcold hid information about a design defect from the public. The settlement amounts to $24.5 million in cash to RV owners and $8.5 million to the attorneys filing the action.
