No National Class Action in Carlisle Suit

(Akron/Tire Review) The Associated Press has reported that a product liability lawsuit by two Michigan men against Carlisle Tire & Wheel Co. has been denied national class-action status.


The judge in the case said the lawsuit lacked proof of "common legal issues," a point necessary to grant national class-action status.


Dennis Drooger of Holland, Mich., and Jeffrey Hunsaker of Byron Center, Mich., sued Carlisle Tire & Wheel, claiming their RV tires failed while they towed campers on a trip to northern Michigan. Their attorneys, said the report, claim that more than 100 similar complaints have been filed with federal safety regulators.

Carlisle has denied widespread problems and said the failure rate on the tires in question is less than 1%. The state case against Carlisle, however, remains pending.
