Nilan Johnson Lewis Successfully Defends Client Evenflo Against Class Action Claims

Nilan Johnson Lewis attorneys Amanda Cialkowski, Matthew Murphy, Cortney Sylvester and John Wackman have successfully defended their client Evenflo Company, Inc., in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. On June 25, 2015, the court granted Evenflo’s motion to dismiss the class action case, which had alleged deceptive trade practices, false statements in advertising, violations of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, breach of implied warranty of merchantability and breach of implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose.

Lead plaintiff Sadie Browe alleged that the harness buckle of her child car seat was unreasonably difficult to unlatch and therefore defective. Oral arguments were heard on April 1, 2015, where Nilan Johnson Lewis attorneys presented the motion to dismiss on behalf of Evenflo.

“The team did a masterful job arguing the motion, and we left oral arguments with a lot of confidence that the client would receive a favorable result,” said Amanda Cialkowski, lead counsel with Nilan Johnson Lewis for this case.

The case is Sadie Browe v. Evenflo Company, Inc.
