On July 17, 2014, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania denied Shop-Vac’s motion to dismiss the claims of a class of vacuum purchasers. Faruqi & Faruqi represents the plaintiffs, who are suing on behalf of consumers deceived by Shop-Vac’s false and misleading horsepower and tank capacity representations. 

In the decision, Judge Yvette Kane declined to dismiss plaintiffs’ consumer fraud, warranty, and Magneson-Moss claims, but did dismiss some of one plaintiff’s claims for failure to give the appropriate pre-suit notice.

Lowe's Home Centers, Inc. and Lowe's HIW, Inc. are also defendants in the case, which is In re: Shop-Vac Marketing and Sales Practice Litigation (4:12-md-02380-YK).  The lead attorney for Faruqi & Faruqi is Adam Gonnelli.
