Fishkin Lucks Scores Voluntary Dismissal of Product Liability Action

Fishkin Lucks secured a voluntary dismissal today of all claims brought in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Monmouth County, against the Firm’s client, a leading designer and manufacturer of exterior wall systems and products.  Plaintiff, the owner of an ocean-front home located in Elberon, New Jersey, brought claims against parties who planned and performed contracting services in connection with significant renovations to the home, the Firm’s client, and a distributor of the client’s products.  Plaintiff alleged that an adverse chemical reaction involving one of our client’s products caused significant damage to the home and lead to water intrusion.  After rejecting requests for contribution toward a global resolution and illustrating how and why our client’s products played no role in the damages alleged,the matter was resolved and all claims were dismissed at a court-ordered mediation when each of the defendants contributed funds toward a global resolution of the matter, without any contribution by our client.
