NAMWOLF Is Excited To Share Success Stories For The Products Liability Group

Wilson Turner Kosmo LLP, located in San Diego, California, is known for successfully defending manufacturers, distributors and retailers of products in both federal and state court.  In recent months alone, WTK reports the following successes with motion practice, protecting their clients’ interests in the most cost-effective way possible:

 

In April 2015, Sotera L. Anderson, Senior Counsel at WTK, successfully brought a motion for summary adjudication in California state court for a products manufacturer in a case involving claims of false advertising in violation of California Business & Professions Code, violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, and breach of the implied warranty of fitness.

 

In March 2015, Ms. Anderson successfully opposed a fee petition for a products manufacturer in a case involving claims of violation of the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, violation of Unfair Competition Law and breach of warranty.  Plaintiffs’ counsel sought several hundred thousand dollars in fees.  Ms. Anderson was able to convince the Court to reduce the fees to well below six figures – only 1/6th of the amount sought.  The client is thrilled. 

 

In January 2015, Ms. Anderson successfully brought a 12(b)(6) Motion to Dismiss in federal court for a products manufacturer in a case involving claims of violation of the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act.  The District Court granted her motion without leave to amend and dismissed the case against all defendants, even those who had litigated the case for a year and did not join in the motion.

 

Ms. Anderson practices in the products liability group at Wilson Turner Kosmo, LLP and can be reached at (619) 236-9600 or Sanderson@wilsonturnerkosmo.com.  For more information about WTK’s Products Liability practice, visit: http://www.wilsonturnerkosmo.com/expertise/Product_Liability/
