Defeating Class Action Claims Based on Right to Repair Act

Joe Ferrentino and Jeff Brower represented developers against class action claims involving copper pipe in hundreds of homes throughout Rancho Santa Margarita, Fullerton, and San Clemente.  The homeowners claim that their copper pipes were corroding due to a chemical reaction between the local water and the copper pipe.  ND asserted that class action claims are not allowed under the Right to Repair Act.  After several years of litigation, the trial Court finally agreed with the defense position.  The class action claimants have now appealed the decision of the trial court and the firm handling the appeal.
