You go that right! If they had to REALLY fix the problem they would end up going out of business.

Now that's an idea that could really work!

.

Yes it does. It fixes Norcold's massive lawsuit liability problem. Or attempts to, anyway. A vehicle recall "fix" is only intended to make the vehicle safe to use, not to make it perform as you expected when you paid your money. It doesn't have to keep your food cold as long as it doesn't cause you injury.

Sadly, the recall module isn't even perfect at its limited goal. There have been at least a couple fires on units that have the recall "fix" module installed.

I am pleased to announce that a hearing was held on October 10th, 2014, before the Judge in the Norcold Class Action hearing regarding the "proposed class action settlement" that was put forward by two of the the plaintiffs law firms involved in this matter - over the objections of a significant number of the named plaintiffs in the matter.

The motion for preliminary approval of this terrible proposed settlement was DENIED by the Judge for a number of reasons including that it was unfair to many of the owners, contained IMPROPER PAYMENTS directly linked to the settlement as an inducement to get some of the plaintiffs to support the settlement who otherwise would not have done so, as well as a number of other reasons. According to the Judge's order: "In sum, the inclusion of the individual settlements of Reserved Claims in the Agreement precludes the Court from finding that the proposed class representatives and their current counsel are adequate representatives of the Settlement Class."

To read the Judge's Order you can click on this link:

http://court.cacd.uscourts.gov/Cacd/JudgeReq.nsf/843d9e11d255eb678825779a0068bdd6/8d7b00c46cf626da88257d6d005de572/$FILE/SA13-81-MO_Etter%20v%20Thetford_MPA.pdf

A number of the named plaintiffs in this case believe that the proposed settlement was WRONG, unfair and should not be approved. At least at this point the Court has agreed and DENIED the proposed settlement. We will continue to seek a settlement on behalf of the welfare of the entire class that is fair to the class.

Glad to hear the judge wasn't fooled, but those who are hoping to get a new residential fridge in settlement are probably dreaming, or maybe smoking something special. If the eventual settlement is even 10x as much, the individual class members will still only a few hundred dollars.
