Eubank, et al. v. Pella Corporation, et al.,Case No. 1:06-cv-04481 District Court for the Northern District Illinois, Eastern Division
Plaintiffs allege Pella ProLine® Casement Windows manufactured by Pella Corporation contain defects that have caused water intrusion resulting in damage to the windows and/or Plaintiffs’ property; that some Pella ProLine® Casement Window owners have paid for repairs or replacements of these windows and property; and that some owners currently require or may in the future require repairs or replacements of these windows and property. The Lawsuit asserts claims against Defendants for violation of Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act and substantially similar laws of certain other States, and declaratory relief based on alleged defects that have caused or will continue to cause damage to owners’ homes or personal property allegedly resulting from water-related intrusion. Defendants deny Plaintiffs’ allegations of wrongdoing and assert numerous defenses to Plaintiffs’ claims.
The Court has made no determination about the strengths or weaknesses of any of Plaintiffs’ contentions or any of Defendants’ defenses. Instead, Plaintiffs and Defendants have entered into a settlement to end the litigation. The Court has preliminarily approved a nationwide settlement.
