US District Judge Enters Final Order and Judgement in Davis et al. v Beazer Homes
United States District Judge William L. Osteen, Jr. today entered the Final Order and Judgment in Davis et al. v Beazer Homes, U.S.A. Inc., et al., No. 1L08CV247 (M.D. N.C.). The Settlement resolves a lawsuit claiming that Beazer Homes failed to disclose to homebuyers that Beazer Homes funded down payment assistance to homebuyers by raising the price of the homes. Beazer denies these claims and charges. The Court noted that there were no objections to the settlement and only five requests for exclusion. The Settlement provided Class Members with direct notice of a Restitution Fund from which Class Members can receive a cash payment equal to the down payment assistance that was paid to the Class Member as part of the transaction in which the Class Member purchased a home from Beazer. The due date for filing of the Requested Relief Form is July 1, 2014. The Requested Relief Form is available here.

John Whitfield has been significant in his management of a suit involving the death of my son in a motorcycle accident. His professionalism, compassion, support, and especially his knowledge base in this suit has been above reproach. He has communicated well and kept all parties apprised of the status of the suit. I feel he negotiated effectively to reach the best possible settlement for my son's estate. He certainly assures his clients are represented well. I am grateful for his successfully bringing this suit to a satisfactory conclusion. In short, John's expertise has been awesome.
I am very grateful to Whitfield Bryson for taking the initiative in filing suit against the manufacturers of defective CSST pipe. I am sure that this successful litigation will now help Maryland homeowners become aware of the danger of old style CSST pipe and to let them know what steps they may take to protect themselves against those dangers. Who knows how many lives and homes may be saved as a result of his efforts. Thank you for your important work in this litigation.
