Lennox Hearth Class Action Settlement


This is a settlement for the Consumer and Financial Fraud lawsuit.

Oakland, CA: A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California involving Superior and Lennox brand single pane, sealed glass front fireplaces. Eligible consumers who have one or more Superior or Lennox brand single-pane sealed glass front gas fireplaces can now file a claim to get benefits.

Generally, with some exceptions, a consumer is considered a member of the Settlement Class and is eligible to file a claim for benefits if he or she is a resident of the US (including California), who owns a home or other residential property that was purchased for personal, family, or household purposes, and whose home has one or more Superior or Lennox brand single-pane sealed glass front gas fireplaces installed between February 6, 2004 and January 11, 2011. Also included are residents of California who own a home or other residential property for personal, family, or household purposes, and whose home has one or more Superior single-pane sealed glass front gas fireplaces that were installed between March 1, 2003 and February 5, 2004.

In accordance with the claims process, Settlement Class members who submit a valid claim will be provided with a protective screen that is intended to reduce the risk of burns to the skin by preventing direct contact with the glass front. Eligible Settlement Class members will also receive supplemental information about the safety of their fireplace(s) and a warning sticker to place on their fireplace control(s). Settlement Class members must file a claim to receive these benefits.

The legal rights of Settlement Class members will be affected regardless of whether they take any action. Settlement Class members that do nothing will stay in the Class, will not get any benefits, and will give up their right to sue the Defendants for the claims being resolved by this Settlement. Settlement Class members that want to keep their right to sue the Defendants about the claims in this case must exclude themselves from the Settlement by no later than May 2, 2011. Those wishing to stay in the Settlement Class may object to the Settlement no later than May 2, 2011. Those wishing to stay in the Settlement Class and obtain benefits must submit claim forms no later than August 1, 2011 or 60 days after the final approval hearing, whichever comes later.

The Court has scheduled a final approval hearing for June 2, 2011.

We are selling a condo here in Onion Creek that has a Lennox gas fireplace that get really hot when it is turned on. I understand that Lennox will send out a protective screen for free.

My son owns a Lennox fireplace and my grandson recently suffered a burn. I would like for him to get a protective screen for the fireplace.
