Homeowner Pipe Claims – $41M

With the representation of Brian Kabateck, homeowners in California’s Santa Clarita Valley, whose homes were damaged by defective pipes, filed a class action lawsuit against developers, suppliers, plumbing contractors, manufacturers and water softening companies. This case was settled for $41 million dollars. The homeowners alleged that foreign-made galvanized pipes prematurely corroded when they came into contact with water, and as the corrosion progressed, holes appeared in the pipes. The pipes were used in 5,000 homes in fifteen different housing developments. The settlement was paid by large and small builders throughout Santa Clarita Valley, including The Newhall Land and Farming Co., American Beauty Homes, Dale Poe Development, Larwin Co., Pacific Bay Homes, as well as pipe manufacturers, suppliers, contractors and water softening companies.
