- AZEK Building Products, Inc. Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation
- Case No. 12-6627
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey
Class members of the AZEK Building Products class action lawsuit contend that the defendant (CPG International, LLC and AZEK Building Products, Inc.) misrepresented the “qualities or attributes of certain historical AZEK Decking” which was sold during the class period. CPG denied all claims regarding the allegations but agreed to settle in an effort to avoid unnecessary litigation and additional costs.
Initial resolve is that CPG will compensate all qualifying members with compensation to 10% of the amount paid for AZEK decking. These distributions are limited to one per household and no individual may receive a claim of more than $2,000. Members may not receive the full 10% if AZEK already to steps to replace decking. There are additional deductions that may be made based on other off-setting measures. Members must provide a healthy amount of information to be verified in the case. The settlement is paired with the release of any claims against the defense in regards to misrepresentation of AZEK decking.
Involved class members will have access and representation from the appointed class counsel:
- James E. Cecchi (Carella, Byrne, Cecchi, Olstein, Brody, & Agnello, P.C.)
- Lindsey H. Taylor (Carella, Byrne, Cecchi, Olstein, Brody, & Agnello, P.C.)
- Christopher A. Seeger (Seeger Weiss LLP)
- Jonathan Shub (Kohn Swift & Graf, P.C.)
