Eppsteiner and Fiorica and Milstein, Adelman & Kreger Report Lawsuit Certified as Class Action Against Pella Subidiary, Viking Industries
Date:4/22/2009

In a decision released April 10, 2009, Judge Carter Holly of the California Superior Court for San Joaquin County certified a Class Action lawsuit (case number CV025771) against Pella Corporation subsidiary Viking Industries.

Los Angeles, California (Lexis Nexis) April 22, 2009 -- In a decision released April 10, 2009, Judge Carter Holly of the California Superior Court for San Joaquin County certified a Class Action lawsuit (case number CV025771) against Pella Corporation subsidiary Viking Industries.

The class action was taken by all persons who own buildings in California that contain Viking Series 3000 fixed, hung, and sliding aluminum windows sold by Pella's subsidiary, Viking Industries, between 1989 and 1999. The class action lawsuit covers windows installed as part of original construction and windows purchased from retailers and dealers. It alleges that windows manufactured by Pella Corporation subsidiary Viking Industries are defective and leak in their lower corners. It, therefore, seeks to recover the cost to replace the defective windows.

The plaintiffs estimate the total number of defective windows to be in excess of 1.2 million, installed in approximately 100,000 homes and businesses in California. The windows were largely sold through Home Depot, Home Base, and Yardbirds stores.

Stuart Eppsteiner of Eppsteiner & Fiorica, LLP, and Paul Stevens, of Milstein Adelman & Kreger are counsel for the plaintiffs.

According to the plaintiffs' attorneys, Pella's subsidiary has a potential liability of $720 million. Pella bought Viking Industries in 1998 and is to respond to Viking window owners' service requests. Stuart Eppsteiner reported, "There is no Viking website, 800 number, or local telephone number for Viking Industries. Effectively Viking homeowners cannot find or communicate with Viking and don't know that Pella is involved. This lawsuit is the solution for these homeowners."

Home Depot is also a defendant, as plaintiffs' counsel understands Home Depot was the top reseller of the Viking Series 3000 windows.

"We will work diligently toward a fair, just, and expeditious resolution of this matter, and hope that Viking and Pella will do likewise to assure their customers' highest satisfaction," said Eppsteiner.

Stuart Eppsteiner, Esq., Eppsteiner & Fiorica Attorneys, located in San Diego, and Paul Stevens, Esq., Milstein, Adelman & Kreger, LLP, located in Santa Monica, represent the plaintiffs. Kevin Cody, Esq., Ropers Majeski, San Jose, and Paul Gary, Esq., Paul Gary & Associates, Portland, Oregon represent Viking Industries.
