Court Appoints Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Interim Class Counsel in Dei Rossi v. Whirlpool Corp., et al.
On April 19, 2012, Judge John A. Mendez of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California appointed Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP to serve as Co-Lead Interim Class Counsel in Dei Rossi v. Whirlpool Corp., et al., Case No. 2:12-cv-00125-JAM-JFM, to represent a proposed nationwide class of persons who purchased mislabeled KitchenAid refrigerators from Whirlpool Corporation, 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 refrigerators do not meet the ENERGY STAR standards for energy efficiency and consume significantly more energy than the label states.
