There are various parties who have reached a settlement of multiple class action lawsuits. According to the cross timbers and railway railings class action settlement, they have made an allegation that decking materials and railings by Elk Corporation and Building Corporation of America are defective.
However, the members are eligible for settlement, if they have the decking materials made by these companies. Moreover, a group of more than three dozen plaintiffs brought the decking material class action lawsuit and also considered the durability issues of materials that were sold or made by the defendants.
According to the plaintiffs, the materials used were not suitable for the cross timbers or the railway railings. The materials were prone to damage and were also vulnerable to the growth of fungus, mold or mildew.
These decking materials were sold under the brands Cross Timbers Decking and DuraLife Decking. However, the railings were sold under the brand Railway Railings.
The Building Materials Corp. says that their products are not defective. Moreover, the court has also made no determination for the liability.
Are You Eligible?
The settlement includes the persons who have purchased the following products-
- The decking material that is sold or made by Building materials Corp between Jan’1, 2002 and December 31’2012.
- Railways that are made or sold by Building materials Corp or Elk Corp.
Moreover, the persons who did the transfer fees are also the Class Members; even if they did not purchase the products at retail themselves.
It will depend on the total amount of decking boards with the damage and total decking boards or railways with damage.
Proof Of Purchase
The class members must ‘open a claim’ for starting the process. Once they are done with opening the claim, they will be sent a claim form, claim number, and instructions on what supporting documents are required.
