Posner Savages 'Scandalous' Settlement in Pella Case

, The National Law Journal


A class action settlement before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit appeals panel was a “scandalous” assemblage of conflicts of interest, cozy relationships, dubious calculations, ethical wrongdoing and judicial inattention, that, in the end, amounted to a decidedly raw deal for the consumers suing Pella Corp. over alleged window defects.

What's being said

  • Pella‘s shareholders should be asking why the Pella legal department allowed this malarky to go on for 8 years and then endorsed such a flawed settlement with Pella customers. Shame on them.

  • Howard foster

    This welcome scrutiny to the class action bar. These cases often start out with noble objectives and end up selling out the class.
