Black & Decker Small Appliances Settlement
The Class Represenstatative alleges that defendants misrepresented that the covered products are manufactured and warranted by Black & Decker and Farberware, when in fact they are not. The Class Representative also alleges that defendants represented that the coffee makers produce a certain number of “cups” but that they did not produce 8-fluid ounces per “cup.”
The Court did not decide in favor of Plaintiff or Defendants. Instead, both sides agreed to a settlement. That way, they avoid the time and expense of going to trial. The Class Representative and his attorneys think the settlement is best for everyone because it provides an appropriate recovery now while avoiding the risk, expense, and delay of pursuing the case through trial and any appeals.

Excluded from the Settlement Class are: (i) all Persons who properly and timely opt out pursuant to this Agreement; (ii) Spectrum Brands and Defendants, and their respective employees; (iii) any Person who properly and timely opts out pursuant to this Agreement; (iv) federal, state, and local governments (including all agencies and subdivisions thereof (but employees thereof are not excluded); and (v) the judges to whom this Action is assigned and any member of their immediate family.
