Case Name

Dickerson, et al. v. York International Corporation, et al.
Case No. 1:15-CV-01105-CCC
United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania

Case Summary

The Plaintiffs claim that JCI manufactures and sells air conditioning systems and heat pump systems, including air handlers and packaged HVAC units, containing defective copper evaporator coils and copper condenser coils that corrode and leak refrigerant. Plaintiffs claim that the Copper Coils are made using uncoated copper tubing and are susceptible to corrosion. It is alleged that a kind of corrosion called formicary corrosion causes microscopic tunnels to form within the copper tubing and causes the coils to leak refrigerant. Plaintiffs claim that JCI: (a) knew or should have known about the defective Copper Coils; (b) should have informed its customers about the defective Copper Coils; (c) should have manufactured the Copper Coils with coated copper or aluminum tubing; and (d) should have replaced the defective Copper Coils rather than simply replace the refrigerant in the unit when the Copper Coils leaked.

The defendants deny the allegations but have agreed to settle
