MINNEAPOLIS, May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A class action settlement has been reached with Honeywell in a class action lawsuit involving TrueSTEAM Humidifiers. Detailed information is available at www.TrueSTEAMHumidifierSettlement.com.
What is this lawsuit about? Plaintiffs filed a lawsuit claiming that TrueSTEAM Humidifiers were defectively designed and manufactured and deceptively marketed, primarily in relation to the alleged effects of mineral scale and sediment build-up on the units. Honeywell vigorously denies all claims asserted against it in this litigation and specifically denies that TrueSTEAM Humidifiers were defective or that Honeywell engaged in any wrongdoing.
The Court did not decide in favor of Plaintiffs or Honeywell. Instead, both sides agreed to this Settlement.
Who is included in the Settlement? You are a Class Member if you are a person within the U.S. or its territories who owned one or more TrueSTEAM Humidifiers between January 1, 2008 and April 14, 2017 for personal or household use.
What does the Settlement provide? Honeywell has agreed to settle this matter by providing all Class Members who file a timely and valid Claim Form, including sufficient proof to establish that they owned a TrueSTEAM Humidifier between January 1, 2008 and April 14, 2017, with the Class Member's choice of EITHER (1) an Award Humidifier or (2) a Cash Payment of between $30 and $40, depending upon the size of the TrueSTEAM Humidifier that the Class Member owned.
Class Counsel will ask the Court for an award of attorneys' fees and expenses that will not exceed $1,150,000.
