Pella Corp. v. Saltzman, 09-8025

In plaintiffs' suit against a window manufacturer, alleging that defendant committed consumer fraud by not publicly declaring a design defect that caused wood casing the windows to rot, defendant's Rule 23(f) appeal is granted and the district court's certification of two classes of plaintiffs affirmed as, although consumer fraud class actions present challenges that a district court must carefully consider, certification is appropriate under the circumstance of this case.
