Court Appoints Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Interim Class Counsel in Dzielak v. Whirlpool Corporation, et al.
On February 21, 2012, Judge Stanley R. Chesler of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey appointed Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP to serve as Interim Class Counsel in Dzielak v. Whirlpool Corporation, et al., Case No. 12-CIV-0089 (SRC)(MAS), to represent a proposed nationwide class of persons who purchased mislabeled Maytag brand washing machines from Whirlpool Company, Lowe’s Companies, Inc. and Sears Holdings Corporation.
The lawsuit alleges that Whirlpool, Lowe’s and Sears misrepresented the energy efficiency of certain washing machines by promoting them as ENERGY STAR-qualified and labeling them with the ENERGY STAR logo. In fact, the washing machines do not meet the ENERGY STAR standards for energy efficiency and consume significantly more energy than the label states.
