$33m Settlement Against Lumber Liquidators


I wonder how this affects anyone who has it or the companies that installed it? Or are the lawyers the only ones making money?

Sounds like that was mostly fines from the government. I'm sure there will be some sort of class action against them now. At the minimum they should pay for labor and materials to replace that flooring

Fines seem a little light, but couldn’t have happened to a better company

Well I was exposed to their crappy flooring that I installed, at least I don’t have to worry about the product since the customer purchased it from them.
