UPDATED INFORMATION: April 20, 2016
Three law firms- Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, P.C., The Blanton Law Firm, and Davis George Mook LLC, are prosecuting class action lawsuits in the Circuit Court of Jackson County, Missouri (Missouri owners), and in the Superior Court of Los Angeles, California (California owners), on behalf of owners of 2003 – 2008 Infiniti FX automobiles with dashboards forming bubbles like those pictured above.
Kevin D. Stanley, Michael Blanton, and L. Benjamin Mook went to trial in the Missouri case against Nissan North America in May 2014 and obtained a verdict awarding Missouri class members $2,000 each as a result of the diminished value of their vehicles. The claims process associated with that verdict has closed. Nissan appealed the decision rather than pay the verdict. On March 22, 2016, the Western District of the Missouri Court of Appeals issued an opinion overturning the jury verdict. Plaintiffs filed a motion asking that the case be transferred to the Missouri Supreme Court. On June 28, 2016, the Missouri Supreme Court sustained Plaintiffs’ Motion for Transfer. The Supreme Court ordered the case be transferred from the Western District of the Missouri Court of Appeals to the Supreme Court, and further ordered the Western District Court of Appeals to recall its mandate and take no further action on the case. We will update with additional information related to the Missouri class action as it becomes available.
The California class action is ongoing and has the potential to impact how Nissan deals with this issue on a nationwide basis. The Texas claims were dismissed by the California Court.
