Jointly represented DuPont in the “Teflon” multi-district consumer fraud litigation. The multi-district litigation consolidated over 24 separately-filed class action lawsuits in which the putative classes of consumer plaintiffs sought the recovery of approximately $5 billion based on DuPont's alleged failure to disclose purported defects in “Teflon” non-stick cookware. Our firm undertook a detailed legal analysis of the claims asserted in each of the class action complaints and guided the legal strategy in connection with the class certification and merits issues. In December 2008, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Iowa ruled that none of the putative classes would be certified. The plaintiffs sought to appeal the decision to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals under the Class Action Fairness Act but the Eighth Circuit denied permission to appeal.

In re: Teflon Products Liability Litigation, No. 4:06-md-01733-REL-CFB (S.D. Iowa filed Mar. 3, 2006).
