Indianapolis Federal Court Judge Approves Settlement of HHGregg Class Action

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.
