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.

Nematzadeh PLLC looks forward to litigating these claims on behalf of the plaintiffs’ class with co-class counsel at Kaliel Gold PLLC and Shamis & Gentile, P.A.
