On August 10, 2018, Chief Judge Thomas Johnston, United States District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, dismissed all substantive counts filed in the class action lawsuit by Jim Leach, L.C. in conjunction with Liddle & Dubin, PC of Detroit, Michigan. Based upon the Court’s ruling, and after review by class-action counsel, we regret to announce that we will not be pursuing further class status regarding the IEI fire. Generally, we believe that the ruling forecloses any further attempt to establish a viable class action lawsuit against any potential defendant related to the IEI Plastics fire that began on October 21, 2017.
