Plaintiffs File Consolidation Complaint
February 1st, 2012
The named plaintiffs in the class action lawsuits against IKO have filed their Consolidated Complaint in the United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois. The lawsuits allege that IKO designed, manufactured, and sold defective shingles to homeowners throughout the United States.
The shingles are curling, cracking, falling off buildings, rapidly deteriorating, and otherwise not performing as promised. The lawsuit further alleges that IKO did not take the appropriate steps to remedy the problems. The lawsuit seeks damages for the cost of replacing the defective shingles, labor, disposal and other related expenses. If the court certifies the proposed class, then all individuals who own properties with defective organic IKO shingles that fall within the class as defined by the court will be covered by this lawsuit.
