Samsung Refrigerator Energy Star Class Action Lawsuit Advances

Similar lawsuits related to Energy Star status for appliances have been dismissed, including a case involving a Maytag Centennial MVWC6ESWW1 washing machine whose energy-efficiency status was later revoked. The defendants were Home Depot U.S.A. and Whirlpool Corporation, both of which had moved to dismiss the lawsuit.

A judge in Ohio dismissed that case last August, ruling, in part, that the plaintiff's claim for damages was barred by the statute of limitations of the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act.

In addition, the judge for the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, said "the plaintiff's failure to allege that any connection between his decision to purchase the washer and either the Energy Star logo or an advertisement is fatal to his claim."
