Second Round of Formaldehyde Suits Brewing
Just as the recreational vehicle industry appears to be nearing a resolution to formaldehyde lawsuits, another round of litigation may be brewing.
As reported by the Elkhart Truth, Ridgeland, Miss., attorney Tyler Kent confirmed he and other Gulf Coast lawyers are preparing a civil suit regarding FEMA trailers sold at auction by the U.S. General Services Administration. The plaintiffs are individuals who purchased the units second-hand but were not told the products were from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and are now suffering from a variety of medical ailments.
Kent did not give specifics about the planned court action, saying the law firms were still working on the document and would likely file a complaint in September or October. However, he said based on the extensive research the attorneys have done, they believe they have enough material to move forward and get a remedy for their clients.
