Pressure Treated Wood Litigation (Multiple Jurisdictions)

Eimer Stahl attorneys represented manufacturers and suppliers in the wood treatment industry in nationwide industry challenges to the marketing, sale, efficacy and safety of pressure treated wood building products.  In class actions filed in states across the country, plaintiffs mounted an industry-wide attack on all Chromated Copper Arsenate treated wood products and producers, asserting claims for false marketing, consumer fraud, nuisance, breach of contract and breach of warranty.  Eimer Stahl lawyers directed and led the successful industry defense to all the cases.
