Federal Court Sustains Allegations Against Sherwin-Williams for Pricing Scheme Class Action

Federal Court Sustains Allegations Against Sherwin-Williams for Pricing Scheme Class Action


Nematzadeh PLLC

New York, NY (Law Firm Newswire) February 16, 2023 – In a class action against The Sherwin-Williams Company for alleged deceptive and misleading surcharges, a federal judge sustained, in part, the allegations of the plaintiffs’ class. The company allegedly took part in a bait-and-switch scheme by failing to notify customers about a “Supply Chain Charge” added to purchases. The Honorable Judge David N. Hurd of the Northern District of New York found that the plaintiff plausibly alleged that The Sherwin-Williams Company engaged in misleading acts and contractual violations by adding the surcharge and failing to disclose it.
