Plaintiffs’ counsel petitioned the court on Monday Feb. 12, 2018 for approval of a proposed settlement between Pella Window Corp. and consumers who purchased Pella Proline wood casement windows between the years 1991 and 2009 that now display wood rot.
The settlement comes after several years of contentious litigation.
The magistrate judge oversaw discovery, and also presided over extensive settlement discussions. The magistrate ultimately made a recommendation for settlement.
The district court judge will review the proposed settlement plan and, upon preliminary approval, notice of the settlement terms will be sent by third party claims administrator KCC to consumers who purchased the windows at issue.
