National Settlement Involving ChoiceDek Is Approved

TBS represented a proposed national class of owners of ChoiceDek composite decking and rail products. Plaintiffs alleged that ChoiceDek products are defective and experience fungal, mold, and mildew growth that causes extensive discoloration that cannot be remedied. On January 9, 2009, the U.S. District Court approved the certification of this class and granted final approval of a national settlement of the class claims. The settlement covers all ChoiceDek product manufactured between January 1, 2004 and October 1, 2006. It provides relief to owners who have experienced mold spotting through a combination of free and discounted deck cleanings, application of mold inhibitor, cash refunds, replacement product, and vouchers.
