Meyer Wilson is pleased to announce the final approval of a nationwide
settlement against hhgregg, Inc. Filed in 2008, the class action alleged
that hhgregg installed metal foil transition ducts/vents on clothes dryers
in a manner prohibited by the manufacturers. This case was one in a series
of consumer safety cases filed by Meyer & Associates against dryer
retailers and installers across the country claiming that the retailers
were installing dryers with improper vents which created a safety hazard.
The nationwide settlement approved by the federal court in March 2011 represents
a significant recovery for Class Members: the ability to obtain a free
replacement of their metal foil vent or be reimbursed for a previous vent
replacement, up to a certain dollar amount.
