Bursor & Fisher, P.A. Appointed Interim Class Counsel in KitchenAid Refrigerator Lawsuit
On April 19, 2012, Judge John A. Mendez of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California appointed Bursor & Fisher, P.A. to serve as Interim Class Counsel in Dei Rossi v. Whirlpool Corp. et al., to represent a proposed nationwide class of persons who purchased mislabeled KitchenAid refrigerators from Whirlpool Corp., Best Buy, and other retailers.
The lawsuit alleges that Whirlpool and others misrepresented the energy efficiency of KitchenAid refrigerators by promoting them as ENERGY STAR-qualified and labeling them with the ENERGY STAR logo. In fact, the appliances do not meet the ENERGY STAR standards for energy efficiency and consume significantly more energy than the label states.
"We are pleased that Judge Mendez appointed our firm as Interim Class Counsel in this case," said Scott A. Bursor, one of the firm's partners handling the matter. "We have experience litigating similar claims against LG and Sears, and we intend to litigate this case aggressively on behalf of our clients and all class members who purchased these KitchenAid refrigerators."
