U.S. District Court Rejects Class, Settlement Plans in Whirlpool Corp Case

U.S. District court ruled that an attorney for two people who would represent the class failed to prove that it was necessary to form a class of property owners to carry on the lawsuit against Whirlpool Corp. The court also ruled that it was not proved that the two class representatives would vigorously prosecute the interests of the class. The court wrote that because it did not certify formation of the class, The court did not need to list his reasons for denying the proposed preliminary settlement that Whirlpool was offering the property owners. Whirlpool has been ordered by the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality to treat the toxic degreaser trichloroethylene that leaked from the refrigerator plant and that was discovered decades ago under the northern section of the Whirlpool property in south Fort Smith and under a neighborhood to the north. The company had proposed to pay owners of as many as 104 properties in and around the neighborhood north of the closed plant to compensate them for the devaluation of their property. The property was devalued last year by the Sebastian County assessor's office because of the trichloroethylene contamination. The company offered an additional 33% of the compensation amount to help the property owners cover the legal expense of pursuing the lawsuit.
