Halunen Law was appointed co-lead counsel in this multidistrict litigation on behalf of consumers who purchased IKO organic shingles. According to the multiple Complaints, these shingles contain design defects, which cause them to prematurely deteriorate, resulting in damage to the underlying structure. Halunen Law, Lockridge Grindal Nauen P.L.L.P., and Levin Sedran & Berman, announced recently that plaintiffs they represented entered into an agreement to settle various class actions relating to IKO roofing shingles. The settlement applies to the “organic” asphalt shingles that were installed on buildings in the United States primarily between 1978 and 2008.
