$36M Settlement Proposed in Defective Fridge Class Action Lawsuit

- by

Santa Clara, CA: A $36 million settlement has been proposed in a defective products class action lawsuit pending against Dyson-Kissner-Moran Corp, and two of its subsidiaries, who manufacture boat fridges. In 2012, a lawsuit was filed alleging fridges intended for use in motor homes and boats (N1200, N6 and N8 models) had a defect that caused them to corrode, overheat and occasionally catch fire.

Under the terms of the proposed settlement, the companies would pay $11 million a year for three years, with $3 million added in the third year.

The case is Jeffrey Etter et al. v. Thetford Corp. et al., case number 8:13-cv-00081, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.
