Santa Monica, CA: On September 9, 2010, the Contra Costa County Superior Court for the State of California, certified a California statewide class action lawsuit against Weather Shield windows for alleged defective windows.
Weather Shield, a Wisconsin corporation, is a manufacturer of window and door system products for the residential and commercial building industry worldwide.
The action has been in litigation since March 2008. The lawsuit, entitled Pagano, et. al. v. Weather Shield Manufacturing, Inc., Case No. C0800609, Contra Costa County Superior Court for the State of California, concerns Weather Shield's "Visions 2000" vinyl horizontal sliding window. The lawsuit asserts the Visions 2000 vinyl horizontal sliding window is defective and the defects have either caused the windows to fail and cause damage, or will, to a substantial certainty, cause them to fail in the future and cause damage to the home or building they are installed. Plaintiffs seek remedies for those in California who have the windows.
